Re: St. Petersburg International Film Festival / "Guest of Honor" Invitation

Dear Ms. Averbakh:

Thank you for your kind invitation. As someone who has enjoyed visiting Russia in the past and can also claim a degree of Russian ancestry, it would make me happy to say yes.

However, as a gay man, I must decline.

I am deeply troubled by the current attitude toward and treatment of gay men and women by the Russian government. The situation is in no way acceptable, and I cannot in good conscience participate in a celebratory occasion hosted by a country where people like myself are being systematically denied their basic right to live and love openly.

Perhaps, when and if circumstances improve, I'll be free to make a different choice.

Until then.

He arrived as an actor in 2003 with his outstanding performance as a young black man passing for white in The Human Stain, a success he amplified — along with his fan base — by playing the resourceful, self-sacrificing brother of a man on death row in the Fox series Prison Break. Yet it is as a screenwriter that Wentworth Miller is making his deepest mark on the movies. His script for Stoker — titled in honor of the author of Dracula, but about a family whose bloody interactions are psychological, not supernatural — not only made the 2010 Black List but attracted Nicole Kidman, Mia Wasikowska and director Chan-Wook Park. In the works are a prequel, called Uncle Charlie; The Story of Edgar Sawtelle, a murder mystery based on a novel by David Wrobleski; an original ghost story, The Disappointments Room; Scare Me, based on Richard Parker’s novel; and With a Friend Like Harry, an American retelling of Dominik Moll’s sinister French hit. Born in 1972 in Oxford, England (where his dad was a Rhodes Scholar), he grew up in Brooklyn, was educated at Princeton, and boasts a United Nations of ancestors: African, Jamaican, Russian, French, Syrian and Native America. Despite a bloodline worthy of a Tolstoy novel and an alma mater in common with F. Scott Fitzgerald, he had neither the nerve nor the motivation to try writing, at first. A desire was there, but acting drew him first, to the initial chagrin of his parents. Success eased their worries — and, as it turns out, lit a spark in Miller himself. Once he tried his hand at playing all the parts on paper, being master of his own little universe, he found writing the most satisfying creative experience of his life. A different kind of caution became his game plan — he sent Stoker around under a pseudonym. Experience has taught him that Hollywood likes nothing better than to put you in a box. He worried that his writing wouldn’t be taken seriously if people looked at it and thought, actor. Not that he’s quit acting — in October he’ll be seen in The Loft, written by Wesley Strick — but for now he’s happy to be the new go-to guy for suspense dramas and thrillers. Not afraid to branch out, he’s got a historical biopic in the oven, but is mum about its protagonist. He’s also cooking up an original spec so personal that he hopes to direct it — the next logical ambition, given his present success rate — and he admits to one slight phobia. Comedy scares him.
Favorite way to procrastinate: What I will admit to doing — when I’m feeling insecure about my writing — is that I’ll go and see a movie that I know will be crap. Then I’ll sit there eating popcorn thinking, “Well, this got made.” And then I’ll feel hopeful again. Then I’ll go home and write.
Pastime you’ve taken up between takes: Do naps count as a pastime?
Best place you’ve found to write: Near the refrigerator.
Band or singer you’re obsessed with: Lately I’ve been listening to a lot of early Françoise Hardy. And the Bird and the Bee. And the Mills Brothers. I love those guys.

Why The Loft New Release Date of August 29 2014 Is Good News

AUGUST 8, 2013
The Loft movie release date is set for August 29th 2014 by Universal. In other words, the release date has been postponed yet again. And this time by just over another year.

But believe it or not, this is actually great news!

Why The Loft Got Postponed So Many Times?

The American version of The Loft was shot in 2011. That’s about three years before the now confirmed release date. The first reason of the delay was a dispute between Joel Silver, the producer, and the former distributor, Warner. Their paths split, and Joel Silver now teams up with prestigious Universal which will distribute The Loft movie worldwide. Good news #1.

As a rule of thumb, it’s not good for movies to lay on the shelve for such a long time. But this time, it actually may be an advantage. Most of the cast got more name and fame over the years. They starred in well received feature films or sitcoms, and have even bigger projects lined up for the future. Good news #2, at least from a marketing/promotion point of view. Which also means Universal believes in the potential of The Loft.

Added to Epic Summer Release List

Last but not least, The Loft is the first movie scheduled to be released in the summer of 2014. Tradition has it that, in the U.S., both small or smart notorious thrillers are released at the end of summer.

Another sign Universal embraces the movie, and even the chosen release date is important: Friday, August 29. That’s the start of the long Labor Day weekend, with a simultaneous screening in 2000 theaters. Need I say more for good news #3.

Sure, having to wait another year is testing your patience. But come spring or early summer, you’ll see the Universal marketing machine kick in. And for the Belgium audience dying to see the Hollywood remake of their most successful film to date, it will be shown in local theaters close to the American release date.
