Variety and the Hollywood Reporter are two of the most commonly read and well-respected sources for entertainment industry news, and I often use the information they provide as a basis for the articles here on CTU.
Thanks to ‘Stop-Loss‘ director Kimberly Peirce for sharing the news with me, I think I was the first to report that the film was going to be shown at the upcoming South by Southwest Film Festival in Austin, Texas. Well, that little tidbit of inside information made it all the way to Anne Thompson, Variety.com’s deputy editor, and her popular weekly blog called Thompson on Hollywood.
She was even nice enough to link to the blog and use a picture of Chan for the article. I couldn’t be more excited for CTU, Channing, and ‘Stop-Loss‘, and I can’t wait to see the film at South by Southwest.
Just to remind you, please make sure to head on over to Facebook and fan the new ‘Stop-Loss’ movie page. You will automatically be entered to win a Panasonic Camcorder, and you be able to get exclusive news, videos, and photos for the film.
