Tony Aloupis directed the gritty drama, which co-stars “True Blood” actor Kevin Alejandro

ARC Entertainment has acquired all North American rights to director Tony Aloupis’ gritty drama “Safelight,” which stars Evan Peters, Juno Temple and Kevin Alejandro (“True Blood”), it was announced Thursday by Scott Moesta, the company’s head of acquisitions.

“Safelight” will be released on VOD and in theaters on July 17.

“Safelight” tells the story of three desperate individuals whose paths perilously cross in a dusty desert town. Charles (Peters) is a high school senior with physical challenges; Vicki (Temple) is a troubled runaway turning tricks at a truck stop; and Skid (Alejandro) is her dangerously psychotic pimp, who has a huge chip on his shoulder.

Their lives take a menacing turn when Charles and Vicki embark on a road trip without Skid up the California coast to photograph lighthouses. Skid couldn’t stand the imagined betrayal. Armed with a hunting knife, Skid looks to punish Vicki and the three characters face each other in a violent showdown that will change their lives forever.

“‘Safelight’ is a captivating story of two people who find each other in the midst of their harsh individual adversities,” said Moesta. “This film was extremely well written and directed with strong performances by the entire cast, and we’re thrilled to have the opportunity to expose this film theatrically and throughout the various channels here in the US and Canada.”

“Safelight” was produced by Aloupis (“Sugar”), Bernie Gewissler (“Chillerama”) and Cory Neal (“Frozen”), and executive produced by Joe Krieg (“Sugar”) and Andrew Mysko (“Hatchet”).

The deal was negotiated by Moesta and Concourse Film Trade, the worldwide sales arm of Matthew Shreder and Andrew Felts, on behalf of the filmmakers. Concourse Film Trade also handled worldwide rights on the film.

Recent ARC Entertainment releases include “Field of Lost Shoes” starring Jason Isaacs, Lauren Holly, Nolan Gould and Luke Benward; “The Barber” starring Scott Glenn and Chris Coy; and “See You in Valhalla” starring Sarah Hyland, Steve Howey, Odeya Rush and Jake McDorman.




Thank you to Daniel Hoyos from ‘I Am Entertainment Magazine’ for sharing, exclusively with us a interview of Tony Aloupis, director of ‘Safelight’ featuring Juno Temple as Vicki.

Director Tony Aloupis, talks exclusively about making the highly anticipated feature Safelight. The film stars renown talent Juno Temple (The Dark Knight Rises), Evan Peters (Kick-Ass), Kevin Alejandro (True Blood), Jason Beghe (Californication), and Ariel Winter (Modern Family).

Safelight tells the touching story of a teenage boy and girl as they go on a road trip to photograph lighthouses. Can you tell us where the idea came from?

I used to take a train into Manhattan for writing classes and there was a kid on the same train who had CP. I wondered how he might come to accept his affliction. I liked the idea of young people helping each other believe in themselves. And, the lighthouses added visual and thematic dynamics.

Safelight was shot in the vast California desert. Can you give us some insight into the location scouting for Safelight?

We started in LA and went north until we found lighthouses that we loved. The northern California lighthouses were perfect for the way we wanted to shot the scenes. The furthest north we went was Mendicino.

Rising actress Juno Temple gave a breathtaking lead performance as Vicki. How did you end-up casting Juno?

Our casting agents, Nancy Nayor and Andy Henry, sent the script out to the talent agencies and the response was amazing. Juno came in for an audition and then came back to read with Evan and we decided that she was the one. She had an incredible understanding of the character of Vicki.

Safelight recently screened at the Newport Beach Film Festival back in April. What has been the audience reaction so far?

The audience reaction has been fantastic. People seem to respond to different aspects of the film.

Safelight is a perfect example of how one can tell a beautiful story while, still getting captivating performances. Do you have any advice for our readers who might be looking to choosing screenwriting as a profession?

I think you have to learn the craft and then write as much as possible. Everything you write is important to developing your skills.

Lastly we’ve gotten requests asking where people can view the film. Do you have any more upcoming festival screenings for Safelight?

We have actually just sold the film to a domestic distributor and it looks like we will have a theatrical and digital release very soon!

Julien Temple is directing a biopic about The Kinks, with Ray Davies and Dave Davies working on the soundtrack.

The director of The Great Rock’n’Roll Swindle, Glastonbury and Joe Strummer: The Future Is Unwritten will begin shooting the movie later in 2015.

The film, You Really Got Me, is set to star Johnny Flynn as Ray Davies, George Mackay as Dave Davies and Juno Temple as Rasa Davies.

“We’ve got the music rights and Ray and Dave will work on the soundtrack,” says the film’s producer Joe Thomas.

“This is an exciting chance to tell The Kinks story in a visceral and real way,” Julien Temple told ScreenDaily. “The lyrics of The Kinks have always been fascinating to me and there is an amazing human story here as well which has yet to be captured on film.”

The director added: “It’s not easy to find British leading men who can deliver the kind of musically compelling performances we need and we have those in Johnny and George.”

The script for You Really Got Me has been produced by Likely Lads writers Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais.

Sunny Afternoon, a musical based on The Kinks’ music and story, is currently playing in London.

EXCLUSIVE: Mr. Turner actor Timothy Spall is to star in Away, the fifth collaboration between producer Terry Stone and international sales agent Cinema Management Group (CMG).

Juno Temple will also headline the drama from Stone’s Gateway Films and Ratio Film. CMG chief Edward Noeltner is introducing Away to buyers in Berlin this week and holds world rights while the producers retain the UK.

David Blair will direct the Blackpool-set story about a widower who saves an orphan on the run from a drug dealer, sparking an unlikely friendship. Production is scheduled for an early March shoot mostly on location.

Spall’s recent best British actor win in London follows solid recognition for his performance in Mr Turner that has delivered a British Independent Film Awards nomination and the best actor prize in Cannes last May, among others.

“I am thrilled that Cinema Management Group will be handling the international sales for Away at this year’s Berlin Film Festival,” said Stone. “We are very proud of the story that we are telling with Away, as well as the team behind it, and feel that it will stand up very well at this competitive market.”

Turner added: “Our recent collaboration with David Blair, Terry Stone, CMG and Gateway bore fruit with the recent completion of The Messenger. We’re looking forward to working with the same team on Away and are excited to be working with one of the UK’s top acting talents in Timothy Spall and Juno Temple.”

CMG is screening The Messenger in the market today (February 5) and on February 8.

If you haven’t heard of Juno Temple yet, you soon will.
The up-and-coming British actress starred opposite Angelina Jolie in the summer blockbuster “Maleficent” and has a role beside Johnny Depp in the upcoming Whitey Bulger flick, “Black Mass.”
Part of a crop of hot young actresses making a name in Hollywood and the indie film world, the 25-year-old actress was singled out last year by the public, which voted to award her the EE Rising Star BAFTA Award.
“There are some truly extraordinary young women actresses right now, like Jennifer Lawrence, Mia Wasikowska, Elizabeth Olsen,” the Somerset, England-born actress told her “Horns” co-star, Daniel Radcliffe, for the inaugural issue of Heroine magazine. “You watch them and you forget sometimes that you’re even watching them. They are so young but know the craft in such an old way, and I love that so much. So if the job doesn’t go your way, you’re just as excited to see the film anyway.”

But lately, things have been going Temple’s way, like adopting a Boston accent to play opposite Depp.
“Johnny Depp playing Whitey Bulger was just one of the most amazing transitions I’ve ever seen,” she told Radcliffe for Heroine. “He had these crazy contact lenses in his eyes that almost reminded me of lizards, so when you were acting with him you were genuinely quite frightened, but he was lovely, so encouraging.”
Here are five things you need to know about Temple:
She Comes From a Rebel Family
Her father, Julien Temple, a fan of punk music, directed the 1979 Sex Pistols documentary “The Great Rock and Roll Swindle,” as well as videos for The Rolling Stones and The Kinks. Her aunt, Nina Temple, was the last secretary of the British Communist Party, and her grandfather, Langdon Temple, once ran a travel agency specializing in Communist countries.
She Grew Up in a Fairytale House
Temple grew up with her father, mother Amanda Pirie, a producer, and two younger brothers in a 14th century house in Taunton, Somerset.
“As kids, we lived in this magical world and roamed free in the gardens,” she told The Telegraph earlier this year. “I was constantly in fancy dress and in character as a kid.”
No surprise, then, that Temple has a thing for fairies and flipped when she got the chance to play one beside Jolie, even if most of her time on set was spent filming in a “giant white room wearing a wet suit with ping pong balls all over it,” as she told Heroine. “I had all these ink dots all over my face and I was filming with a 10-foot-tall version of Angelina Jolie’s face.”
She Got Started as Child Actress
It’s no surprise, given her childhood, that Temple announced to her parents that she wanted to become an actress. Her first role, at 8, was in one of her father’s films. At age 12, she auditioned and won the role of Cate Blanchett’s sulky teenage daughter in “Notes on a Scandal.” By the time she left boarding school, she had worked on 11 films, and her co-star in “St Trinian’s 2: The Legend of Fratton’s Gold,” Rupert Everett, helped her write her essay for completing her secondary education.
Though she’s 25, Temple can still look like a child actress.
“I’m still at a stage where sometimes I look 18,” she told Radcliffe. “Some days people tell me I look 14, which is a bit of a shock … and then sometimes I look 25.”
She Prefers Character to Leading Lady Roles
Temple has already been cast in more than 30 film roles, including a 12-year-old girl whose virginity is offered as collateral to Matthew McConaughey’s hit man, a schizophrenic insomniac and a woman who is raped and murdered.
“I usually like to play a woman who’s got s*** going on,” she told The Telegraph. “I’m not sure I ooze leading lady, I’m not the high school catch. I’ve been lucky with characters.”
Her Boyfriend Is a Fellow Actor
Temple lives with her boyfriend, actor Michael Angarano, whom she met on the set of 2012′s “Brass Teapot,” in a 1920s Los Angeles bungalow filled with vintage clothes and British flags. According to The Telegraph, she once collected Angarano from the airport in nothing but underwear, heels and a raincoat.

As Juno Temple and I sit outside at Los Angeles’ Burbank studios to discuss her role in Disney’s Maleficent, a crow swoops down like a dark shadow over us and lands, menacingly, on our table, its black iridescent wings outstretched. In the Californian sunshine, this aerial assault is so timely, it’s as if the studio has engineered it for us. “It’s Maleficent!” Temple cries, her eyes widening in cartoon-style, “Like Angelina Jolie is present.”
The 24-year-old British actress stars as the young fairy Thistletwit, alongside a winged and horned Jolie, in the revisionist tale about the Mistress of All Evil from Disney’s original 1959 Sleeping Beauty. Whether you think the film, directed by special effects guru Robert Stromberg, is a triumph or something slightly short of that, the casting is spot on. Jolie is a dead ringer for the dark queen, even without visual enhancements; and the mental leap from Temple, tiny and ethereal in a dinky lilac vintage dress before me, to a bonkers, teenage pixie is small. She’s like a sprite in beaten-up biker boots; and she says she feels an affinity to fairies too. “I had this imaginary world where fairies were my friends. If you told six year-old Juno that she’d one day play a Disney fairy, she’d totally freak out,” she enthuses at an alarming speed, her Somerset-bred accent now submerged in thick, twangy Los Angelino (she has been a city resident since 2008). Her vocal pitch and perpetual sense of wonder could still be mistaken for a six-year old’s. “I still have one foot in that magical world. I never want to lose that.”
If taken on first impressions alone, it might be easy to dismiss Temple as a gushy, Bonnie Langford type, a child star trapped in the body of a woman (she started acting when she was eight). But this would be a mistake. In her career, which has already spanned 32 feature films and an EE Rising Star Bafta awarded last year, Temple has shown a taste for darkly complex, unstable female characters which she has embraced with emotional maturity.
After early turns as spiky, petulant school girls in films like Notes on a Scandal in 2002 – a part she won at her first professional audition – and Joe Wright’s adaptation of Ian McEwan’s Atonement in 2007, she has explored the borders of the female psyche in mainly independent films.
She has played a 12-year-old Texan trailer trash girl whose virginity is offered as collateral to a hitman in Killer Joe; a stripper-cum-sex worker in Afternoon Delight; a lesbian lycanthrope in Jack and Diane; a schizophrenic insomniac in Magic Magic; and the murdered girlfriend of a man with Satanic powers, played by Daniel Radcliffe, in Horns out later this year. That’s more edgy, challenging roles than most actresses take on in a lifetime.
“I usually like to play a woman who’s got s— going on,” she tells me. “I’m not sure I ooze leading lady, I’m not the high school catch. I’ve been lucky with characters, but some are real headf—-.” She talks as if she’s on fast forward. “That’s why it’s so important to have a director you trust, who can bring your feet back to earth when you’re weeping in a hole after being beaten up.” She remembers Joe Wright reassuring her, when, at 16, she was left traumatised by the sexual abuse scene in Atonement: “Your character is f—ed up, but Juno’s okay.” She says now: “I’ve had to do a couple of rape scenes and they’re f—ing rough. There’s a brutal one in Horns, then I have to play dead. I’m not good at it because I have an overactive vein in my neck. It’s screaming: ‘I’m not ready to die yet!’”

Juno Temple has appeared in more than 30 movies since starting her career in earnest with “Notes on a Scandal” in 2006.

This summer, the busy 24-year-old has two coming out: the refocused Sleeping Beauty story “Maleficent” (May 30) and comic book noir “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For” (Aug. 22).

Both were major technical shoots, a newish thing for the English actress who, despite the occasional “Dark Knight Rises,” tends to favor down-and-dirty indie projects such as “Killer Joe,” “Lovelace” and “Afternoon Delight.”

“We did motion capture,” Temple says of her “Maleficent” job as Thistlewit, a ditzy teenage pixie who annoys her older cohorts, played by fellow Brits Lesley Manville and Imelda Staunton. “It was such a trippy experience for me because I’ve never done a lot of green screen before and this is a whole other realm of making a movie. You’re just in one big room with loads and loads of cameras, and you have to wear these strange wetsuits that are covered in what are like shiny golf balls. Then we had to wear head cameras and be on wires and stuff.”

She loved flitting about with Staunton and Manville, but didn’t get much face time with the film’s star, Angelina Jolie — depending, that is, on one’s definition of face time.

“I met with Angelina briefly, and she was so great and so cool and so lovely,” Temple reports. “But I didn’t get to do any filming with her, no. I filmed with a giant, Styrofoam version of her.”

Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s sequel to their superstylized, hardboiled crime drama “Sin City” also required the actors to work under green screen circumstances for demanding 3-D cameras. Temple, who plays one of the film’s many molls, is confident that the viewing effect will be totally worth it.
