The members of the International Film Music Critics Association (IFMCA) have announced their nominees for the latest IFMCA Awards, honoring achievements in film and television music in 2006. The nominees are:
Variety reports that when writer/director M. Night Shyamalan traveled fromPhiladelphia to Hollywood recently to cement his plan to turn the cartoon “Avatar: The Last Airbender” into a live-action film for Paramount, he and his new CAA representatives showed several studios a new script he’s written.
Noah Gray-Cabey has an impressive resume: “CSI: Miami,” “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Ghost Whisperer.” These days, the 11-year-old actor from Maine has a regular role on NBC’s hit show “Heroes.”
Lady in the Water is a film of wonder, showcasing the amazing mind of M. Night Shyamalan. It takes you into a tapestry of wonder, and like all of his films, the pieces can be wound in many different ways. It is only as the movie draws near to the end that you understand that what the movie is about, isn’t what you thought in the first place. And when you realize what it is truly about, you can see the whole film in another light entirely.
Amazon.com has an exclusive featurette titled “Ladies of the Water: Mermaids, Sirens, Sea Nymphs and the Narf”. This documentary-style program delivers to its viewers a historical and cultural look into the mythology, legends and folklore of these sea creatures, including interviews with M. Night Shyamalan, Bryce Dallas-Howard, Paul Giamatti, and several professors of mythology.
Warner Home Video has announced M. Night Shyamalan’s ‘Lady in the Water’ will be released simultaneously on DVD, Combo Format HD-DVD and Blu-ray Disc on December 19.
M. Night Shyamalan recently talked with Australian newspaper ‘The West Australian’, as his film ‘Lady in the Water’ makes its debut there this week. It’s a pretty interesting interview that covers the split with Disney, making the film, and working with Christopher Doyle. Night also decided to drop a couple more clues about the “very clean” idea for his next film, saying: “I have an idea, but sometimes the ideas are more wrestling, grappling and complicated. I’m excited about the clarity of what I’m thinking of now, it’s a big idea I’ve got in the works.”

Although ’Lady in the Water’ is just making it’s debut in many overseas markets, it has faded from many of the theaters in America. Thus the attention has turned towards the DVD release. ‘Lady in the Water’ DVD rumors are being talked about on many message boards across the Internet, and people are speculating about the release date, features, commentary, and other goodies. The Digital Bits is reporting in their “Rumor Mill” that ‘Lady’ is looking at a December 19th release date, and unconfirmed sources are saying that Shyamalan will be doing an audio commentary for the film. Shyamalan, who has somewhat spoken out against making commentary tracks for DVD’s, is said to be answering the critics during the commentary. Although I hope this doesn’t turn into Night going off on a rant against the critics, I am dying to hear him speak in detail about this absolutely wonderful movie. I can hear the giggles now
