In 2010, Director Diane Bell made a splash at the Sundance Film Festival with her film ‘Obselidia.’ After receiving rave reviews she went to work on her next project, ‘Shiva & May.’ Later she cast Jesse and Zosia Mamet in the lead roles and filming began in September 2013.
The film centers Shiva, a young woman who ends up being a sex worker for her less than savory boyfriend. Jesse plays May, Shiva’s newly found half sister who is also a Yoga instructor. When Shiva’s dark secrets start being revealed, May starts behaving in ways she’s never imagined in order to protect her sister.
Eric Lavallee of Ion Cinema said:
“It’ll be curious if much of this DNA finds itslef in her sophomore film which magnetically caught the attention of name-talent in Jessica Biel and Zosia Mamet. Shiva & May will bring out the kink and thriller elements.”
Now the news we are all interested in.. the release date:
Shoring up for the production in the month of October, this will technically be well ready for the fall festival season, and perhaps earlier for Cannes’ sidebars….but producers might hold out for Sundance 2015.
I wouldn’t mind waiting until 2015 for the film if it meant that Jess was at Sundance again. Her being a Sundance regular would really allow her to start getting those roles we are all dying to see her in.
Jesse was snapped by fans at JT’s concert in Fargo, ND last night February 7th.
Lookin like the Queen she is, Jess is comfortably watching her hubby perform at the Fargodome in North Dakota. Check out the photo below, courtesy of Twitter user ‘m’.
Some real news would be cool too tho.
Grandma Sadie is no stranger when it comes to talking to the media about her beloved Grandson, Justin, and has actually been the source of several information over the past few years, but this seems a bit much.
Justin’s Mother, Lynn, had posted on her Facebook (still not confirmed) that her mother was in the Hospital and was about to undergo surgery, and two days later an interview with UK Publication ‘The Sun’ is released? Seems fishy.
It’s not like they revealed anything we didn’t know, JT and Jess spending time apart due to their busy schedules, but I’m gonna guess the mag is exaggerating a bit. Check out the article and come to your own conclusion:
Justin Timberlake’s marriage is ”hard going” because he and wife Jessica Biel spend so much time apart, says his grandma.
The singer-and-actor and wife Jessica Biel – who he wed in October 2012 – spend a lot of time apart because of their respective careers and his grandmother Sadie Bomar is worried the distance is going to damage their relationship.
She said: ”They are married but they are so busy, both of them, it’s hard going.
While they never worked together, Jesse took a moment today to express her sadness over the loss of Philip Seymour Hoffman.
We lost one of our greatest. Rest in peace, Phillip Seymour Hoffman.
A very big loss to the film community and of course his family/children. Sending good vibes their way.
