‘The Act’: Chloë Sevigny & AnnaSophia Robb To Star In Hulu True-Crime Series

Oscar nominee Chloë Sevigny and The Carrie Diaries star AnnaSophia Robb are set to co-star opposite Patricia Arquette and Joey King in the first season of The Act, Hulu’s character-based anthology series from Nick Antosca, Michelle Dean and Universal Cable Productions.

Written by Dean and Antosca and directed by Laure de Clermont-Tonnerre, The Act is a seasonal anthology series that tells startling, stranger-than-fiction true crime stories. The first season is based on Dean’s 2016 Buzzfeed article “Dee Dee Wanted Her Daughter To Be Sick, Gypsy Wanted Her Mom To Be Murdered.” It follows Gypsy Blanchard (King), a girl trying to escape the toxic relationship she has with her overprotective mother, Dee Dee (Arquette). Her quest for independence opens a Pandora’s box of secrets, one that ultimately leads to murder.

Sevigny will play Mel, a natural leader of all the women in her small neighborhood. She’s had a hard life, and she sympathizes with the troubles Dee Dee’s been through. But when she catches a glimpse of another side of Dee Dee, she doesn’t know what to think.

Robb portrays Lacey, Mel’s daughter. Like her mom, she’s a popular girl, well-liked by everyone she meets. Unlike her mom, she’s a bit of an idealist. She finds herself instantly taken with Gypsy and Dee Dee, and soon turns up at their house wanting to help out.

Antosca and Dean, along with Greg Shephard and Britton Rizzio, will executive produce. Universal Cable Productions, where Antosca is under an overall deal, is the studio.

Sevigny, Oscar-nominated for her performance in Boys Don’t Cry, recently wrapped a starring role with Bill Murray, Adam Driver, and Tilda Swinton in Jim Jarmusch’s The Dead Don’t Die for Focus Features and Universal Pictures International. She will next be seen in the title role of infamous accused murderess Lizzie Borden (opposite Kristen Stewart) in the upcoming Roadside Attractions September release Lizzie, with she also developed and produced. In TV, Sevigny won a Golden Globe for HBO’s Big Love. Other credits include Hit & Miss, Portlandia, American Horror Story: Asylum, AHS: Hotel, and Bloodline. She is repped by WME and Circle of Confusion.

Robb currently stars in Down a Dark Hall opposite Uma Thurman and directed by Rodrigo Cortes. She can also be seen in the feature Freakshow, produced by Drew Barrymore’s Flower Films and directed by Trudie Styler. On TV, Robb played the lead in The Carrie Diaries and most recently was seen as Alice Green in the second season of Civil War miniseries Mercy Street, produced by Ridley Scott. She’s repped by CAA and Untitled Entertainment.

Down a Dark Hall | Official Trailer #1

Kit (AnnaSophia Robb), a difficult young girl, is sent to the mysterious Blackwood Boarding School when her heated temper becomes too much for her mother to handle. Once she arrives at Blackwood, Kit encounters eccentric headmistress Madame Duret (Uma Thurman) and meets the school’s only other students, four young women also headed down a troubled path. While exploring the labyrinthine corridors of the school, Kit and her classmates discover that Blackwood Manor hides an age-old secret rooted in the paranormal.

Based on the classic gothic YA novel of the same name by Lois Duncan – author of “I Know What You Did Last Summer” – and produced by Stephenie Meyer (author of Twilight, The Host), DOWN A DARK HALL is a supernatural thriller directed by Rodrigo Cortés (Buried), from a screenplay by Mike Goldbach and Chris Sparling, and stars AnnaSophia Robb (Soul Surfer, The Carrie Diaries), Isabelle Fuhrman (Orphan), Victoria Moroles (Teen Wolf), Noah Silver (The Tribes of Palos Verdes), Taylor Russell (TV’s Falling Skies), Rosie Day (Outlander), and features a truly memorable turn by the iconic Uma Thurman (Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill: Vols. I & II).


Freak Show | Official Trailer #1

Opening in theaters and VOD January 12th. / Directed by: Trudie Styler. / Starring: Bette Midler, Laverne Cox, Alex Lawther, Abigail Breslin & AnnaSophia Robb.

Billy Bloom (Alex Lawther, The Imitation Game) is one-of-a-kind: a fabulous, glitter-bedecked, gender-bending teenager whose razor-sharp wit is matched only his by his outrageous, anything-goes fashion sense. When his glamorous mother (Bette Midler) is forced to send him to live with his straight-laced father (Larry Pine), Billy finds himself a diva-out-of-water at his new ultra-conservative high school. Undaunted by the bullies who don’t understand him, the fearless Billy sets out to make a big statement in his own inimitable way: challenging the school’s reigning mean girl (Abigail Breslin) for the title of homecoming queen. This proudly offbeat comedy is an irresistible ode to outsiders and nonconformists of all stripes.

“The Crash” Exclusive Clip from The Hollywood Reporter

‘The Crash’ Clip: John Leguizamo, Dianna Agron Brainstorm to Thwart a Stock Market Attack (Exclusive Video)

The Aram Rappaport thriller also stars Frank Grillo, Christopher McDonald, Minnie Driver, Maggie Q, AnnaSophia Robb, Mary McCormack, Ed Westwick and Andrew James Allen.
John Leguizamo is on the brink of a breakthrough in The Hollywood Reporter’s exclusive clip of The Crash.

Set in a future when the U.S. economy is on the brink of another massive financial crisis, the thriller stars Frank Grillo as Guy Clifton, a federally indicted stock trader who is secretly enlisted by the federal government to help thwart a cyber-attack aimed at the stock markets that could permanently cripple the economy. Having only ever been fueled by his love of money, he fully intends to use his insider knowledge of this world catastrophe for personal gain — until he unearths the organization behind the attack and discovers its motives.

In the film, John Leguizamo plays George Diebold, a wheelchair-ridden stroke victim who is also the foremost expert on the stock market’s computer systems. The clip sees Dianna Agron consulting with him about how to find the source of the attack.

Written and directed by Aram Rappaport, the Vertical Entertainment release (out today in select theaters and on demand) also stars Christopher McDonald, Minnie Driver, Maggie Q, AnnaSophia Robb, Mary McCormack, Ed Westwick and Andrew James Allen.

Teen Vogue: AnnaSophia Robb and Stefania Owen Reunite

If you wish The Carrie Diaries would come back to television, you’re definitely not alone. The prequel to Sex and the City starred AnnaSophia Robb as the ~infamous~ Carrie Bradshaw, and while it only ran for two seasons, it definitely succeeded in stealing our nostalgic hearts.

While an official Carrie Diaries reunion might not be in the cards, we can still relive the on-screen magic between AnnaSophia and her TV sister, Stefania Owen. Stefania played Dorrit Bradshaw, Carrie’s rebellious little sister, much to the delight of SATC fans who always wondered if Carrie had a family of her own. It turns out that Stefania and AnnaSophia are still friends – and that they’ve actually known each other since they were 7 years old.

The two girls took to Instagram yesterday to show off an adorable selfie as they rang in 2017 together. “What a way to begin the year,” Stefania wrote, adding in a couple of cute emojis. “together again!!!!”

What a way to begin the year 👱🏼‍♀️👩🏻 together again!!!! 💕❤️
