Graham Rogers Joins ‘Careful What You Wish For’
“Revolution’s” Graham Rogers joins Isabel Lucas, Nick Jonas and Dermot Mulroney in indie thriller “Careful What You Wish For” from Hyde Park Entertainment and Troika Pictures.
Producers are Robert Stein, Ashok Amritraj, Kirk D’Amico, Bradley Gallo, William Gallo, Michael Helfant and Philip Cohen, with Stuart Brown, Kevin Frakes and Raj Singh exec producing.
“Careful” is directed by Elizabeth Allen from a script by Chris Frisina and Gregg Hurwitz. Production starts April 22 in Charlotte, N.C.
Jonas is making his feature debut, portraying a character who has an affair with a married woman played by Lucas. Mulroney is cast as her husband, an investment banker who dies suspiciously. Rogers will portray the best friend of Jonas’ character, who at first doesn’t believe that he’s having an affair with such an attractive woman.
Rogers also stars in “Struck By Lightning,” and “Crazy Kind Of Love.” He’s repped by APA, Management 360, and Stone, Meyer, Genow, Smelkinson, & Binder LLP.
Hello Isabel fans and welcome back to our freshly revamped site! Thanks to the lovely Flor we have a beautiful and long overdue new layout! This one features a photo – one of my favourites – from Isabel’s 2009 photoshoot for Vanity Fair, and I think it showcases Isabel’s natural beauty and persona perfectly. Flor did a great job capturing a beachy feel and customising the layout to our needs, so I hope you all love this new look as much as I do … don’t be shy in leaving a comment
With a new layout should always come new updates, so I will try to get something in in the next few days….
Just over a week ago Isabel attended a photo exhibition hosted by Summit On The Summit to mark World Water Day. You might remember that it was the Summit On The Summit charity that Isabel climbed Mount Kilimanjaro with 3 years ago. SOTS is a charity concerned with bringing awareness to the need for more access to clean water around the world. Isabel looked pretty at this photo exhibition in a little peach YB J’Aime blouse and skirt from the Mademoiselle 2012 collection with a Proenza Schouler PS11 Classic bag, and posed with fellow supporters including her good friend, musician Kenna.
Photos from the exhibition have now been added to our Gallery:
Nick Jonas and Isabel Lucas have a new co-star in Careful What You Wish For. Dermot Mulroney has joined the Elizabeth Allen-directed thriller, announced Hyde Park-Image Nation and Troika Pictures today. Mulroney will play the investment banker who Lucas’ character Lena is married to while she is having an affair with Jonas’ Doug role. When Mulroney’s character dies and a hefty life insurance policy is reveled, everyone becomes a suspect. Jonas’ addition to the film was announced on March 18. Mulroney recently was set to topline NBC’s drama pilot from writer-executive producer Rand Ravich. The actor will also next be seen in the upcoming jOBS and Osage County with Julia Roberts and Meryl Streep. Mulroney is repped by WME and Barry Tyerman.
Red Dawn was released on DVD and Blu-ray in the US recently, and I have now been able to add HD screencaptures from the film to our Gallery! Isabel unfortunately only had a small role in the film and didn’t have much to do. Still, it was nice seeing her on screen alongside Chris Hemsworth again, and seeing her take part in a bit of action!

Saving the best til last of our several updates today – we now have our first look at Isabel as Pauline in Electric Slide! Isabel’s involvement in this film was first reported on last October, and she has been filming the movie in Los Angeles in the time since then. The first still from the film has recenty been posted online, to accompany a Variety article about the potential sale of the film at the European Film Market currently being held in Berlin. It’s a long, long article with only a short mention of the film, talking about how the film may get an initial release on Video On Demand in the US. I’ve posted the excerpt relevant to Electric Slide below, and you can read the whole thing at the source linked beneath that. The still itself shows a hurried Pauline in a pretty red and black dress, being dragged along by Jim Sturgess’s character Eddie Dodson. Read back through our News Archive for the film to find out more about the story.

Digital distribution and compressed windows may not seem like the sexiest topics, but these two phenomena have bolstered an indie film world undercut by the crash of the DVD market. And whether it’s pre-theatrical VOD, day-and-date multiplatform distribution or ancillary windows far briefer than the customary three-month, compressed window releasing has become common enough — and sometimes profitable enough — to begin influencing how films are financed.
It’s been a while since I’ve been able to make some proper updates here (blame real-life), but I’ve now finally found a bit of time to add some new things to the site. Marica was kind enough to send me a big batch of additional candids – in HQ! – from a sighting of Izzy out and about in New York City last year. We already had some shots from this sighting, but these fabulous HQ ones from Marica let us see more of Izzy looking summery in the Big Apple. I know how much everyone loves candids, so enjoy these

Whilst researching for our recently completed Charities page, I came across a previously unseen photo of Isabel visiting Williamstown Primary School way back in 2005. She was there in her role as ambassador for Global Green Plan to talk to the children about environment conservation, including pollution and emissions, energy-saving light bulbs, electric hybrid cars and being water wise. She also told them about the water and energy-saving house her parents were building in Queensland. Isabel visited the town’s high school 4 years later to promote the launch of their environmentally-focussed curriculum.
The picture is small but pretty and rare, and you can now find it in our Gallery. Read more about Isabel’s work for Global Green Plan on our Charities page.
Isabel made her first public appearance of the year this week, at the opening of a Christian Dior store in Sydney. She looked pretty in a very unique and stand-out multi-coloured (orange, purple and green!) dress by Dior, with her hair a new sandy brown shade and natural make-up. I think I may be in the minority, but I kind of like this look on her! What do you think of it?
Isabel celebrates her 28th birthday today, so we would like to wish her a very Happy Birthday! Isabel, we hope that you have a special day with your loved ones, and that the year ahead brings you all you wish for and even more!
Isabel has had a fairly quiet year but has been busy filming several new roles, so the future looks very bright for her! I love seeing the path she’s taking with her career and have continued admiration and respect for her dedication to the causes closest to her, so wish her lots of success, and can’t wait to see what she does next. Thanks for being such a positive and proactive role model, Isabel.
Unfortunately I haven’t had time to get any updates in to celebrate Izzy’s day, but I hope to have time to do that later this week. If you’d like to wish Isabel a happy birthday then just leave a comment on this post.
The previous Red Dawn DVD & Blu-ray release date has changed from February 26th back a week to March 5th. At the moment there are no special features listed, but this may change.
