New Movie From Embers

misc_001The entertainment industry news website Deadline broke the news that Matthew Morrison (Glee) and Kara Wang (Top Gun: Maverick “Top Gun: Maverick!”) are headlining a new movie called From Embers.

As you will guess as it is being reported on this site, Kathryn has a role in the film.  Much like in the photo above taken on set, Kathryn’s part is likely to be quite small.

From Embers, which looks like it was known as From Ashes until recently, is written and directed by Kate Bohan (Harper).  The plot involves Lily (Kara Wang) as a single mother dealing with the sudden and dramatic death of her husband, and trying to find out what happened.  Matthew Morrison is a neighbour, a father to a young teen girl, an artist, with his own struggles.  The daughter is played by Kate’s own daughter Kayla, who has starred in Kate’s previous films such as Harper.  There is an element of autobiography in Kate’s work, as she lost her first husband.  Harper is based somewhat on her own life.

One thing that may have drawn Kathryn to this project is that Lily’s son is autistic.  I am sure she is keen to see accurate and positive portrayals of people with autism in the wider media.

The film is now in post-production, having started filming in July and completed in October.  The process was interrupted for a few days in July due to the SAG-AFTRA strike action which halted so much TV and film production across the summer of 2023.  Some small independent productions were given waivers to allow them to continue though.  The union’s issues were with the big studios and they recognised the impact that the shut-downs would have on those outside of those systems.  From Embers was granted a dispensation with an “Interim Agreement”.  You may have noticed over the summer a lot more film directors giving interviews about their latest movies and actors only talking about specific work, and not allowed to discuss other projects.  This was part of these agreements with the unions.

Here on KM UK we will certainly be tracking the progress of this film in the coming months.

Hayseed Release Trailer And Release Dates

hayseed_trailer_2_018Distributor DYNMC Films have released an official trailer for the movie Hayseed ahead of a limited cinematic run and a date for the film to made available via streaming.  It’s all go-go-go on the Hayseed front.

After a sold out screening on in Brooklyn, New York, here are a set of dates and locations for the limited theatrical release of Hayseed:

7th Nov, Los Angeles, CA – Laemmle Royal
8th Nov, Los Angeles, CA – Laemmle NoHo 7
13th Nov, Detroit, MI – Emagine Royal Oak
14th Nov, Ann Arbor, MI – Emagine Saline
15th Nov, Lansing, MI – Celebration Cinema
16th Nov, Grand Rapids, MI – Wealthy Theatre
21st Nov, New York, NY – Village East by Angelika

That second one is in bold for a reason.  Kathryn and her co-star Marta Piekarz (Queer As Folk) are due to attend a Q&A at the Laemmle NoHo7 event on the 8th in Los Angeles.  Looks like it is a 7pm start time for the screening.

What’s more the film is due to get what is being called a ‘digital release’ on the 21st November.  Presumably this is on streaming platforms, though which is not clear yet.

You can watch the official Hayseed release trailer on YouTube HERE.

A handful of screencaps from the trailer have been added to the Gallery.  They are very similar to the previous trailer we covered but with better picture quality.  There is also a very high resolution still and new posters.

17th Annual Ante Up For Autism

ante_up_for_autism_2023_001.jpgThe Ante Up For Autism annual event took place again in late September to raise money for TACA (The Autism Community in Action).

Kathryn attended the event with her two boys, both of whom have autism.  Nearly $1m was raised so far at this year’s charity auction.

Having been thrust into the world of autism by her family situation has become and advocate for the condition, having set up her own organisation, The Savants, and is an Ambassador for TACA.

A bunch of photos of Kathryn at the event can now be found in the KM UK Gallery HERE.
