Future New York Films

26 July 2012

2013 looks to be another busy year for New York based films. Several new projects have recently been announced, some of which are already in production.

OTSONY takes a sneak peak at what is in store for next year’s cinema audiences. First up is the film “Can a Song Save Your Life?” which stars "Last Night" actress Keira Knightley and Mark Ruffalo, more recently seen as The Hulk in "Avengers Assemble". It is about a dejected music business executive who forms a bond with a young singer-songwriter new to Manhattan. Film locations used include New York’s Meatpacking District and Gitane Café on Mott Street.

Next up is “Very Good Girls” starring Dakota Fanning, Elizabeth Olsen and Demi Moore. It is about two New York City girls pact to lose their virginity during their first summer out of high school. When they both fall for the same street artist, the friends find their connection tested for the first time. The last time Demi Moore starred in a New York based film was back in the 2011 financial crisis drama "Margin Call". Another A-List actress returning the island of Manhattan is Catherine Zeta Jones. Previous New York projects include “No Reservations” and “The Rebound”, both of which feature in the Film Location section of OTSONY. This time the Welsh actress stars alongside Mark Wahlberg and Russell Crowe in “Broken City”, a film about an ex-cop trailing the wife of New York City's mayor who finds himself immersed in a larger scandal. Another New York based film for Ms Jones is "The Bitter Pill" where she stars alongside Rooney Mara and Jude Law and is about a woman who turns to prescription medication as a way of handling her anxiety concerning her husband's upcoming release from prison. One confirmed film location is Central Park's Conservatory Water, which lies in a natural hollow near Fifth Avenue and 74th Street.

Other films released in 2013 will include “The Wolf of Wall Street” starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Jonah Hill and Jon Bernthal, the teen drama “Gabriel” starring Rory Culkin, Matt Czuchry and Louisa Krause and “179th Street” starring Danny Trejo, Michael Pitt and Michael Kenneth Williams.

Canada will no doubt step in for New York City along the way, and one supposedly New York based film has already confirmed that. “Empire State” is a drama that centres around two childhood friends who plan to rob an armoured car depository. It stars Liam Hemsworth, Dwayne Johnson and Emma Roberts, who was previously seen in the New York drama, "The Art of Getting By".

Finally, Maggie Grace, David Duchovny and Helen Hunt team up for “Relative Insanity”, a contemporary adaptation of Anton Chekhov's classic play The Seagull set in present-day New York City and The Hamptons. Also look out for “Lucky Dog” starring Paul Rudd, Paul Giamatti and Sally Hawkins and “Married and Cheating” starring Marisa Tomei, Sarah Jessica Parker and Brendan Fraser, which is a romantic comedy centred on three different couples with one thing in common.

Last but by no means least, the film “Sam” starring Chris Klein, Anna Chlumsky and James Lafferty is about an alpha New York City male who is magically transformed into a beautiful girl, falls in love with his best buddy, and learns what it means to be a woman.
