    Samuel L. Jackson is in final negotiations to co-star with Hailee Steinfeld in the indie “Barely Lethal” that Brett Ratner is producing, scripted by John D’Arco (MFA 05)  http://variety.com/2013/film/news/samuel-l-jackson-plans-to-get-barely-lethal-with-hailee-steinfeld-exclusive-1200481567/ Congratulations to Cody Gallo (BFA 05) and David Shark (MFA 12)!   They have both been accepted into the DGA Training Program! From Matt Sklar (BFA 09)  “Apparently USA Today thinks the Star Wars commercial Colin Duffy and I just made is, "Pretty funny!" We are finalists in a Pringles/Star Wars commercial contest. We're up against 5 other teams for the grand prize of $25,000. They've been pushing these all over the web and even made me write a blog on StarWars.com. So that's kinda cool. Don't worry, I mentioned the film school. No voting or anything for this but it is sort of a popularity contest so feel free to tweet/post about it if you want!  http://www.usatoday.com/story/popcandy/2013/05/08/pringles-star-wars/2143867/http://starwarsblog.starwars.com/index.php/2013/05/09/pringles-the-force-for-fun-contest-dont-hold-your-breath/ Also from Matt  “I edited a movie trailer spoof thing for the new season of Annoying Orange and it is now playing in all AMC movie theaters across the country. It plays before all PG/PG13 movies during the "First Look" section. So it's a like a pre-trailer trailer. It will probably be sandwiched right between a Coke commercial and some sort of Seinfeld trivia question!   I also edited the premiere of Season 2 which airs TONIGHT at 7:30 on Cartoon Network. And Gilbert Gottfried is in it. From Adele Romanski (BFA 04)  "BLACK ROCK opens in 20 cities & is available on VOD everywhere starting Friday 5/17 (blackrockmovie.com/#/theaters). The film was directed by and stars Katie Aselton along with Kate Bosworth and Lake Bell, written by Mark Duplass and produced by me! We premiered the film at Sundance 2012. I'm very excited that the film is finally having it's release. If you're thinking of checking it out - please go this weekend!!  Quick Synop: Three young women – Sarah (Kate Bosworth), Abby (Katie Aselton) and Lou (Lake Bell) – get together for a private campout at one of the iconic settings of their childhood, an empty island off the coast of Maine, to renew their bond of sisterhood. They quickly learn, though, that the island is anything but empty, when they encounter three recently-returned servicemen, who have come to the island to hunt. A misunderstanding quickly turns to tragedy, and the three women soon find themselves the targets of the hunt. What started as a simple playdate to recall old times is now a race for survival."  In other news - we got some really great news down in PR. Well, Megan (Boone, FSU Theatre alum)  did really - but I'm so happy for her!! Her pilot (BLACKLIST) was picked up to series by NBC. She's the lead in one of the most buzzed pilots of the season with James Spader supporting : http://www.deadline.com/2013/05/nbc-sony-make-deal-blacklist-night-shift-welcome-to-the-family-all-picked-up-community-renewed/ “ From Ben Hershleder (MFA  95)  “ MY Avid Media Composer Cookbook is getting good reviews since its publishing earlier this year.  Please "like", share, and/or Amazon review it.
