Adam have a wonderful and amazing 33rd birthday!
Adam has snagged himself a new role! He’ll be starring in Gia Milani’s indie drama, All The Wrong Reasons.
After playing the male lead opposite Greta Gerwig in Whit Stillman’s “Damsels in Distress,” Adam Brody is continuing in indies, as he’s set to lead the ensemble of Gia Milani’s drama “All the Wrong Reasons.”
A co-production between Shore Road Pictures and Buffalo Gal Pictures, pic will co-star Kevin Zegers and “Cosmopolis” thesps Sarah Gadon and Emily Hampshire.
Milani’s script follows four friends as they wander around New York City over the course of one eventful day. Pic is skedded to start production later this month in Halifax, Canada.
Milani and Tony Whalen are producing for Shore Road along with Buffalo Gal principal Phyllis Laing, while Shore Road’s Monique Perro will serve as associate producer.
Since Brody ended his run on the hit series “The O.C.,” he has kept busy in independent films. Not only will he soon be seen as porn star Harry Reems alongside Amanda Seyfried in “Lovelace,” but he has four other indie pics awaiting release, including Julian Farino’s “The Oranges,” Rob Meltzer’s corporate comedy “Welcome to the Jungle,” a feature adaptation of Neil LaBute’s play “Some Girls” and the Atlas Independent-produced comedy “Revenge For Jolly!” Thesp also stole several scenes as Keira Knightley’s boyfriend in “Seeking a Friend For the End of the World.”
Brody is repped by UTA. ICM Partners reps Zegers, while WME reps Gadon. Hampshire is repped by K.L. Benzakein Talent and Thruline Entertainment.
The Piece Project and Celebration Theatre will present a reading of Bekah Brunstetter’s Be a Good Little Widow July 9 at the Celebration Theatre in West Hollywood.
The 8 PM reading will feature the talents of Adam Brody, Sharon Lawrence, Larisa Oleynik and Jason Ritter. Devon Gummersall will direct.
“Young wife Melody has never been to a funeral – until her husband dies in a plane crash,” according to press notes. “Expected to instantly assume proper widowhood, Melody is left to wonder, what’s the right way to grieve? Fortunately, her mother-in-law is a professional. Widow, that is. Under her guidance, Melody must try her best to be a good little widow. A sad comedy about loss and longing.”
Founded by Devon Gummersall and Andrew Carlberg, The Piece Project is a celebrity-based theatre ensemble. Every two-three months, The Piece Project hosts a play reading to benefit a local Los Angeles theater company.
Celebration Theatre is a community of artists “dedicated to presenting innovative, provocative and relevant work that examines the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender experience.”

UInterview will be interviewing Adam and they want your questions!
Uinterview.com is taking questions for Adam Brody of ‘The O.C.’ and ‘Jennifer’s Body,’ whose next project is ‘Damsels in Distress.’ Submit your question for Adam now by clicking on his pic in the top left corner of this page: http://uinterview.com/
The filmmaker previously discussed with us his vague plans to team up long-time favorite Chris Eigeman, who sits out “Damsels In Distress” after appearing in the director’s first three films, and Adam Brody, the “O.C.” star who features in the cast of the new film, telling us in Toronto last year that, “I think it will be interesting to get Adam and Chris together on the same piece.” Well, the good news is that the plan seems to be crystallizing, and he’s hoping to add two other collaborators, one old, one new, on the project. “I have an idea for something that I think Greta [Gerwig, the lead in 'Damsels'], Adam [Brody], Chris [Eigeman] and Chloe [Sevigny, who starred in "The Last Days Of Disco"] could all be in. I’d love to do that. I think they’d be kind of great together.” No further details were forthcoming, but those four actors in a Stillman film? Consider us sold.
It’s unclear if the Gerwig/Brody/Eigeman/Sevigny project (or “The Indie Expendables,” as we’ll nickname it henceforth) is the film that’ll go next, but Stillman was hesitant to put any kind of timeline on when he might be shooting again. “I don’t want to predict because I haven’t been very good at predicting so far. And at certain points in the production, I just want to be alone writing short stories or a novel or something, because I find the pressure in a film shoot and film post-production kind of overwhelming. It’s like too much. I guess I care about each step so much, and I don’t delegate really, because I want to do it myself if I can. So that’s gotten to be such a strain. I do sometimes dream of just working on fiction. But the thing is, I am so attracted to the music and the actors and the photography and that would be lost of course. And those are moments that I just love.”
Congrats to Adam for snagging not one, but two new film roles!
dam Brody is embracing his new leading-man status by taking on two new high-profile indies, including the latest film from writer-producer Neil LaBute.
Brody has landed the lead in “Some Girls,” a feature adaptation of LaBute’s play that will be directed by Jennifer Getzinger (“Mad Men”). Story follows a successful writer who, before getting married, decides to travel across the country to meet his five ex-girlfriends in a series of hotel rooms.
Thesp is also set to star in Rob Meltzer’s “Welcome to the Jungle,” which follows a group of staffers at a design firm who go on an office retreat to a tropical island, where total chaos erupts after they become stranded. A “Lord of the Flies”-type situation unfolds, and Brody’s protag is forced to match wits with the power-hungry leader in order to rescue his co-workers.
Rob Huebel, Dennis Haysbert, Kristen Schaal and Jean-Claude Van Damme will co-star in the Pimienta production, which starts shooting next month in Puerto Rico.
U.K.-based The Salt Company is financing the Jeff Kauffmann-scripted pic, which will be produced by National Lampoon exec Justin Kanew and Pimienta’s Luillo Ruiz (“The Men Who Stare at Goats”). Charley Cabrera will co-produce, while Alex Goldstone will exec produce with The Salt Co.’s Robert Bevan, Samantha Horley and Cyril Margret.
Best known for playing nerdy teen Seth Cohen on “The OC,” Brody has been working to shed that image of late, taking on a series of supporting roles in challenging indie fare. He just signed on to play “Deep Throat” star Harry Reems opposite Amanda Seyfried in “Lovelace” and stars in Whit Stillman’s “Damsels in Distress,” which Sony Classics opens April 6.
This year is shaping up to be a big one for Brody, who co-stars in last year’s Toronto Film Festival entry “The Oranges,” the Kristin Wiig-Oscar Isaac indie “Revenge for Jolly” and Focus Features’ “Seeking a Friend for the End of the World,” which stars Steve Carell and Keira Knightley.
Brody is repped by UTA.
From ABO and its visitors, happy 32nd birthday Adam! Have a good one today! And don’t forget to follow the @MTV twitter account! Adam will be live-tweeting there during tonight’s Good Vibes episode!
Showbizz 411 has revealed Adam will have a cameo in Revenge for Jolly. Details about his cameo are still under wraps, hopefully we’ll find out more about it soon!
It’s not listed on the imdb or anywhere else that I can tell. But Kristen Wiig is busy shooting a movie that’s not “Imogene,” the film she’s scheduled to start at the end of August with directors Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini. The film is called “Revenge for Jolly,” directed by shortfilm maker Chadd Harbold but more importantly starring and written by Wiig’s boyfriend Brian Petsos. Petsos and Oscar Isaac (also to be seen off Broadway soon in “We Live Here” and on film in Madonna‘s “W.E.”) play bumbling guys who seek revenge from robbers for the death of their dog, named Jolly. The comedy is described as being in the mode of the Coen Bros.’ “Fargo.” Wiig makes at least a cameo appearance, along with Ryan Phillippe, Elijah Wood, Adam Brody and possibly Gillian Jacobs.
