UPDATE: Reddit Now Says Warner Bros Didn’t Goose ‘Getaway’ Comments After All

By | Thursday August 29, 2013 @ 7:52pm PDT

UPDATE, 7:52 PM: Reddit is looking a little red-faced today. After alleging Wednesday that someone at Warner Bros was trying to game comments and postings about the about-to-open driving thriller Getaway on the social news and entertainment site, Reddit is now changing its tune. The site said tonight that neither Warners nor anyone working for it actually had anything to do with the supposed under-handed marketing move. After looking into the matter more and likely fielding some calls from WB lawyers, Reddit updated its original post with the following statement late Thursday:

After further investigation, we have found that neither Warner Bros. nor any of their employees was involved in this activity. To be perfectly clear, the posts that we detected came from a third party who had no affiliation with Warner Bros. This third party was not part of the marketing efforts of Warner Bros for the film. We regret confusion about the source of these posts, and appreciate the cooperation and understanding of Warner Bros who has taken this as seriously as we do and has very strict policies on these matters.

Toronto: Richard Linklater Completes ‘Before Midnight’ Just Before Fest Begins

By | Wednesday September 5, 2012 @ 10:24am PDT
Mike Fleming

EXCLUSIVE: Buyers arriving at the Toronto Film Festival tomorrow already have a lot of sales titles to consider (more on that tomorrow). Here’s another title to add to the mix: Richard Linklater just wrapped shooting in Messinia, Greece on Before Midnight, the third film in a series that began with Before Sunrise and Before Sunset.

Before Midnight, which has Julie Delpy and Ethan Hawke reprising their roles as star-crossed lovers Celine and Jesse, was once again scripted by Linklater, Delpy and Hawke, the same team that got an Oscar nom in 2005 for Before Sunset. Linklater shot the film quietly, as many didn’t think it would happen before 2013.

There won’t be a sizzle reel or script to read at Toronto, because the film wrapped late last night. But Cinetic Media’s John Sloss will be handling domestic sales once again and he will be at Toronto with other films. Before Midnight is produced by Linklater’s Detour Filmproduction, Christos V. Konstantakopoulos and Sara Woodhatch of Faliro House and Jacob Pechenik of Venture 4TH, together with Martin Shafer and Liz Glotzer of Castle Rock Entertainment. Sloss is exec producer. Read More »
