stx seeks cash from saudi arabia and china

Following a string of box office duds, STX Entertainment is looking for a lifeline with an investment from Saudi Arabia. Sources tell THR that a deal between the country’s Public Investment Fund and STX is nearly complete. That would make the indie studio, run by Bob Simonds, the first to take Saudi money since the murder of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi in October. The 5-year-old studio, whose model is making midbudget films anchored by a star, has largely struggled since its inception, with some notable hits including Bad Moms ($184 million worldwide) and the Amy Schumer vehicle I Feel Pretty ($95 million worldwide). But the recent flop UglyDolls ($28 million globally) added more strain. Though TPG has the largest equity and debt position in STX, the studio has relied heavily on…

lou pearlman biopic shows the con behind the music

Big Deal As music biopics continue to trend post-Bohemian Rhapsody and Rocketman, one controversial mogul will get the spotlight. The meteoric rise and epic fall of boy band impresario Lou Pearlman will be told in Transcon, produced by Edward Pressman (Wall Street), former Village Roadshow CEO Greg Basser, luxury fashion marketing guru David Anton and hitmakers Desmond Child and Andreas Carlsson. The latter duo penned several ’90s pop hits and will write new music as well as integrate songs associated with Pearlman’s artists for the film’s soundtrack. The producers have optioned Bryan Burrough’s Vanity Fair story “Mad About the Boys” and Tyler Gray’s nonfiction book The Hit Charade to serve as the basis of the true-crime tale of glory and greed. Although known as “Big Poppa,” Pearlman by some estimates swindled investors out of…

‘i’m having the conversation everyone in the world is having’

Marianne Williamson made a big impression at the June 27 Democratic debate, as her out-of-the-box thoughts on everything from moon shots to parenting captivated — and perhaps confused — an already bleary electorate. Self-help aficionados have long been well-acquainted with the 67-year-old candidate, who’s authored 13 books — her most recent is A Politics of Love: A Handbook for a New American Revolution — and has been championed by no less than Oprah Winfrey, who first hosted her on her talk show in 1992 and remains a friend. (“I think part of being her friend is respecting her privacy,” says Williamson when prodded for Winfrey’s thoughts on the campaign.) Dismissed as everything from a kooky hippie to a dangerous anti-vaxxer — the first label she accepts, the second she rejects…

mad about you

I have never seen The Towering Inferno. But I know the whole movie. Steve McQueen, Paul Newman, O.J. Simpson and the cat. Produced by Irwin Allen. It seems like a fine movie. But I don’t ever need to see it because I read Mad magazine’s “The Towering Sterno.” In just a couple of pages, I knew everything I needed to know about infernos and towers thanks to writer Dick DeBartolo and artist Mort Drucker. Drucker could make an actor look more like themselves than they did in real life, and he could not only draw funny, but every 9-year-old I knew will never forget the nude scene in Kramer vs. Kramer. Not the movie — we weren’t allowed to see it — but the way Drucker drew JoBeth Williams in “Crymore…
