Automatic Vaudeville has just announced plans to film an adaptation of Leo Nikoleyevich Tolstoy’s great work Anna Karenina. The project is to be helmed by D. S. Perlmutter, who plans to bring to the screen all of the book's passion, romance, and philosophies on collective farming. But of course the big question now is: who will play Anna?

“We must find an actress so stunning that her face would send even the most conservative gentlemen to break with certain social mores," Perlmutter declared at a recent press junket.

To that end Automatic Vaudeville is launching the largest star search since Selznick set out to find his Scarlett. As you read this, representatives are being sent out to the four corners of the globe to search for our Anna.

Think you’re perfect for the part? Let us know. All serious offers will be considered. Stay tuned for further information on this and other Automatic Vaudeville productions.

News, and a reminder

First: just a little reminder to all of our friends & fans in Toronto, Ontario, that The Recommendations will be screening at the impossibly chic Camera Bar (1028 Queen St. W.) this Sunday, June 19. Screenings are at 7PM and 9PM—we hope to see you there!

Also, we've received word on our screening info for the Nickel Independent Film & Video Festival in lovely St. John's, Newfoundland. The Recommendations will be screening at the LSPU Hall Theatre on July 8, at 7PM. If you're in or around the St. John's area we'd love to see you there (providing we can get it together to make it there ourselves, of course. We're trying. We promise).

PLUS: Stay tuned for a special announcement coming very soon!
