Chloe will be honored by Women in Film at their fundraising dinner on June 12:
Women in Film will honor Viola Davis, Bonnie Hammer, Chloe Grace Moretz and Christina Applegate at its June 12 fundraising dinner.
“The Help” star Davis will be recognized with the Crystal Award for excellence in film, while NBCU Cable maven Hammer is being honored with the Lucy Award for excellence in television. Moretz, who stars in May release “Dark Shadows,” has been selected as Women in Film’s Max Mara “Face of the Future.” Thesp Applegate will be recognized with the Norma Zarky Humanitarian Award for her work with Right Action for Women, which provides screenings to women who are at risk for breast cancer.
Iris Grossman, President Emeritus of Women In Film, Los Angeles, returning this year as Chair of the Awards, said, “Viola, Bonnie and Christina exemplify women whose determination, courage and vision have shaped their careers and inspired us all. Chloe Moretz defines the future, her extraordinary talent will continue to entertain and move generations to come.”
Additional honorees will be announced soon for the Beverly Hilton Hotel event.
Comic creator Mark Millar said Sunday in an interview that Kick-Ass 2, the follow-up to the 2010 superhero movie, is set to start filming within the next several months. Speaking with Scotland’s Daily Report, Millar said, “We shoot Kick-Ass 2 and American Jesus this summer. Then Matthew and I have Secret Service, which is a neddy James Bond.”
Although he didn’t offer additional specifics, the writer seemed to imply that original Kick-Ass director Matthew Vaughn was also involved, albeit presumably as a producer since he announced in January that he would be directing the next X-Men film. Currently the film has no attached director or stars, and the original film’s studio, Lionsgate, has made no announcements comfirming when or if the film might go into production.
The sounding mixing team behind Martin Scorsese’s Hugo took top honores at the 48th annual Cinema Audio Society Awards, which took place Saturday night at the Millenium Biltmore Hotel in Los Angeles.
The award for Outstanding Achievement in Sound Mixing for a Motion Picture went to Hugo’s production mixer John Midgley, re-recording mixer Tom Fleischman and scoring mixer Simon Rhodes. Midgley, a first-time CAS winner, and Fleischman, who previously received a CAS Award in the category for The Aviator, are also nominated for an Academy Award for sound mixing. It also was a first CAS Award for Rhodes as well as the first year scoring mixers have been included in the awards.
