Producer and director Madeleine Sackler (The Lottery, Dangerous Acts Starring the Unstable Elements of Belarus) and actor and director Boyd Holbrook (Gone Girl, Little Accidents, Behind the Candelabra) have teamed to launch their own development and production company, Madbrook Films. The New York City-based shingle will produce passion projects from both partners as well as other writers and directors, starting with the short film Peacock Killer.
Adapted from Sam Shepard’s story of the same name, Peacock Killer marks Holbrook’s debut as a writer and director. The film stars Boardwalk Empire‘s Shea Whigham and True Grit‘s Elizabeth Marvel in the tale of reconciliation between a man and his dog after a peacock comes between them. Holbrook filmed the project this winter in upstate New York and was completed with the help of a successful Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign, which raised over $17,000 for the project.
Madbrook is also developing Uncle Sam, the West Virginia-set story of a military-bound teenager’s investigation into his father’s disappearance, as Holbrook’s feature directing debut. Holbrook, a former model, only launched his film acting career in 2008 (in the Oscar winner Milk), but has already worked with the likes of Gus Van Sant, Steven Soderbergh, Terrence Malick, and David Fincher. His acting credits include Higher Ground, Very Good Girls, The Host, Sundance pics The Skeleton Twins and Little Accidents, and Showtime’s The Big C. He next appears in the Natalie Portman Western Jane Got A Gun, Warner Bros. thriller Run All Night, and Netflix’s upcoming Pablo Escobar series Narcos. Sackler, whose Great Curve Films will be folded into the new venture, is developing a science fiction thriller, a prison drama, and several documentary projects. Boyd is repped by CAA.
Mia Hansen-Love’s “Eden,” David Fincher’s “Gone Girl” and Theodore Melfi’s “St. Vincent” are among the 30 films set to unspool at Zurich Film Festival’s Gala Premiere section.
Based on Gillian Flynn’s crime bestseller, “Gone Girl” is a psychological thriller turning on a man (Ben Affleck) whose wife, Amy (Rosamund Pike) has gone missing on their fifth wedding anniversary. The Twentieth Century Fox movie will have its world premiere at the opening of New York film fest.
Hey, guys! Today, September 1st, is Boyd Holbrook’s 33rd birthday! I hope he’s enjoying the presence of his loved ones and having a great time! Unfortunately, Boyd doesn’t have any social networks we could use to send him well wishes… I suppose we should start sending him letters? Anyway. You can try using the hashtag #HappyBirthdayBoyd on Twitter, perhaps he’ll see it someday!
A new interview with Boyd about “A Walk Among The Tombstones” has been released! He talks about the general story of the film, his character and working with Liam Neeson. Watch it below:
