Ooooh, New Movie News!

Finally some more (hopefully reliable) PFach career news!!!!

From The Hollywood Reporter (check out the entire article here!):

The Twilight Saga’s Peter Facinelli will star in Gallows Hill, a supernatural horror movie to be directed by Victor Garcia.

Sophia Myles (Underworld)and Nathalia Ramos (Nickelodeon’s House of Anubis) are also in the movie, which is being produced by David Higgins of Launchpad Productions, Peter Block of A Bigger Boat and Andrea Chung.

Written by Richard D’Ovidio (Thirteen Ghosts), the story follows an American (Facinelli), widowed from his Colombia-born wife, who flies to Bogota with his new fiancée (Myles) to retrieve his rebellious teenage daughter Jill (Ramos). After a car accident leaves them stranded in a rundown isolated inn, they discover the old innkeeper has locked a young girl in the basement and their decision to set her free has unintended consequences. D’Ovidio and Higgins wrote the story.

Shooting is due to being this month in Bogota, the capital of Colombia.

PFach Talks RV Park from Comic-Con!

Sorry about the extended silence on our part, Kate has been on vacation and since the twins share a brain…well…things tend to go dormant when one of us is absent!!!  Thankfully we’ve been reunited and have lovely things lined up for you!!!  Another Fastlane recap!  A new/old full-movie recap with a brand-spankin’ new video from the awesome FacinelliLatino!  And to tide you over while we work our buns off getting those finished…some new career news, straight from PFach’s mouth to your ears!!!

We’re crossing our fingers and toes that our boy can get a movie knocked out before Nurse Jackie starts Season 5…but either way, we aren’t complaining!!!  But with the hints about movies Facinelli Films is working on…some of which PFach is in…such a tease!  Thoughts??

What PFach is Doing This Summer! (and more!)

Wattpad.com did an interview with our boy while he was at the Tangers Outlet on May 20th.  Aside from an excruciatingly awkward moment where she told him about all the RPF written about him on Wattpad, this video has some great info in it, including answering the question in our last post!

Highlights:

  • Facinelli Films has about twelve projects in development right now, including one movie remake.
  • The movie we wondered about in our last post is one he’s mentioned before: a thriller set in an RV park (it sounds like it may actually be called RV Park), where a daughter goes missing and we see the extent her parents go to to find her.  PFach wrote the script based on the RV roadtrip he took with his family last summer.
  • Nurse Jackie will be coming back for Season Five!  (We’re holding him to that!)
  • PFach would like to give the horror genre a try (WHOO-HOO!) as well as a true romantic comedy.  He prefers Roman Polanski horror as opposed to monster horror…maybe Facinelli Films is remaking Rosemary’s Baby:-)

Status of Paz

It’s been a while since we heard anything about Paz, a movie detailing the life of Rhode Island boxer Vinny Pazienza.  He was a world champion before almost dying in a car accident, but not only did he recover…he came back and won THREE more world championships!

As far back as March 2010, Vinny himself was saying that PFach would be playing him in the movie about his life, and went on a news show with Michael Corrente to confirm it (it’s an interesting pre-Loosies video too):

A little over a year later in June 2011, though, PFach didn’t exactly confirm that he’d be playing Paz:

“I’m attached to it,” Peter told AccessHollywood.com of the film-in-the works, based on the life story of the Italian-American former world champ, who formerly went by Vinny Pazienza. “It’s pending script. Right now the script’s being written, so if the script is up to par, I’d love to do it.

“I’ve met Vinny Paz and I think his story is very inspirational,” Peter added. “It’d be fun to do a boxing movie.”

(You can read the entire article here.)

After Loosies‘ January 2012 theatrical release, Verdi Productions turned their attention back to Paz, with a press release stating that filming would begin in September of this year, and that principal cast would be announced soon.  Vinny visited Verdi Productions the next day (pics here) and then again a couple of weeks later (pics here).  Sounds like things were picking up steam!

Right now the movie isn’t listed on PFach’s official IMDB page, but then again the page for Paz doesn’t have any actors listed either.  Notably, though, it was said in the news story below that there’s “no word yet on who will play Paz.”  :-(

Granted maybe that means that they just haven’t officially signed anyone yet, so unless PFach himself or Verdi Productions wants to give us a hint, we’ll just have to keep our fingers crossed that we’ll be able to add a BoxerFach tag soon!

Where Can I Watch (insert movie here)?!?

We here at the Watchalong (all two of us) are always trying to keep on top of the availability of PFach’s work, not only so we can re-watch our own personal favorites, but also so we can pass that availability on to you!  His movies are like Lay’s chips…you can’t have just one!  In that vein, we’re going to start a weekly Tweet (you already follow us, right?!?) advising you which of his movies are available on Netflix Streaming (NOT DVD). They’ll come out on Fridays, just in time for a snuggle-down-with-popcorn-and-fruity-drink viewing!

Mojitos and popcorn, yes and please!

Now, in case you’re wondering why we need to update you on Netflix’s availability…take it from us, they’re notorious for putting movies up and pulling them down faster than Bobby can pick your pocket.  For a while there were a bunch of PFach movies available, then they yanked over half of them.  The entirety of Fastlane was available, then it was gone.  Sometimes they give you fair warning, usually they don’t.  For a few heart-stopping days, ALL of his movies were gone from Netflix streaming…we fired off a few bitchy Tweets to @Netflix, then they magically reappeared (yes, we like to think our squawking had something to do with it).

Quite a bit of PFach’s work is available through mediums other than Netflix (Telling You and Lily come to mind), and have been noted accordingly in their individual recaps.  If a movie is available through less-than-honorable means, we’re not going to pass that along.  Sorry, but we’ve gotta respect the owners of the material in question.  We’re srs bsns like that.

Srs. Bsns.

Got a question about where you might find something you know we’ve watched (see sidebar) but haven’t recapped yet?  Feel free to e-mail or Tweet us!  Got a legit source for something we haven’t seen (again, see sidebar)?  Please do let us know, and we’ll happily give you credit in our recap!

Love,
Kate and Brits

P.S. – We’ve also added a “Find it HERE” search function on the (JUST GO EYEBALL IT NOW!) sidebar…wanna quickly find our Enfants Terribles recap?  Type it in and watch it go!

That Guy

We all know “that guy.”  And in this short film, directed by Peter Winther (who also directed our boy in Touch the Top of the World), PFach plays him.  Get ready to laugh, cringe, and then rewatch it all over again!

Battle Olympia

Back in 2007, Los Angeles was in the running to host the 2016 Olympic Games.  To this end, director Jesse Davey created this absolutely amazeballs video-bid to aid the city’s cause!  PFach shows up around 3:55 as a stressed office worker/Olympic Dressage Champion, but TRUST US and watch the whole thing!  If anyone can make chugging the nastiest of power-shakes look good, it’s Gavin Rossdale.  And PFach’s gleeful WHOOOOOOOOO-HOOOOOOOOO after probably-not-so-successfully clearing a high-jump…yep, it’s all worth it!!!!!  Enjoy!!!
