“The umlaut isn't on my birth certificate. I had this book as a child called Chloë and Maude, and there was an umlaut on the e, and I said, I want that! It's a little flair. Just to confuse people even more. People always come up to me and say, Oh, you're Chloë Se-VIG-ny, right? Sevigny. Number seven, letter e.”

The most valuable asset any country can attain is control of the human mind.
The people at FirstShowing.net have put up the first poster for Jonathan Liebesman’s upcoming psychological thriller The Killing Room (2009), starring Chloë Sevigny, Nick Cannon, Peter Stormare and Chloë’s Zodiac co-star Clea DuVall. The site also reveals some additional moderately spoilerific details on the film, which are definitely worth a read if you’re interested in the movie. Spoiler-phobes should, in fact, turn away now. From FirstShowing.net:
[Synopsis:] As a group, they are presented with a series of questions and a finite window of time by which each of them must submit a unique numerical answer. Presumably the subject who is furthest from the correct response will be “removed” from the experiment. They soon come to realize that, in this lethal psychological game, the correct answer is not always the right one. Behind the scenes, the mysterious and brooding Dr. Phillips (Stormare) deviously pulls the strings as the most recent addition to his team, military psychologist Ms. Reilly (Sevigny), is emotionally torn by her first assignment.
The Killing Room is directed by Jonathan Liebesman, of Darkness Falls and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning previously. The screenplay was co-written by first-time writer Gus Krieger and Ann Peacock (The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, Kit Kittredge: An American Girl, Nights in Rodanthe). The film will be premiering at the Sundance Film Festival in January where it will be looking for a US distributor. Expect to hear plenty more about The Killing Room in 2009!
Personally, I am so very excited for this film! Don’t forget to check back with us for more information on Chloë’s involvement in The Killing Room, including reviews and Sundace Film Festival premiere coverage, this upcoming January! Finally, Happy New Year 2009, y’all!

At last, things are making progress with Chloë film-wise! ShockTillYouDrop.com has the first four medium-res promotional stills from Jonathan Liebesman’s upcoming thriller The Killing Room, at least two — and possibly three — of which feature Chloë! If you’re a spoiler-phobe, however, you might want to skip the second still. Check them all out at our gallery! From ShockTillYouDrop.com:
Following the success of Platinum Dunes’ Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning, director Jonathan Liebesman flirted with a number of projects including the upcoming Friday the 13th before Marcus Nispel was brought in.
Liebesman ultimately decided to helm The Killing Room by screenwriters Gus Krieger (a newcomer) and Ann Peacock (The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe). The film was shot in Shreveport, Louisiana with actors Nick Cannon, Clea DuVall, Timothy Hutton, Meade Patton and Chloë Sevigny. And, as reported yesterday, Liebesman’s latest – about four folks roped into an extreme psychological research study sanctioned by the government – is a Sundance entry (out of competition).

More news on the upcoming thriller The Killing Room! The Sundance Institute has announced its screening lineup at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival, which will run January 15-25 2009 — and The Killing Room is among the announced movie screenings! From the ever reliable Variety:
Tightened to 16 entries from last year’s 24, the Premieres rep some of the higher-profile films at Sundance, often coming with known directors and casts and occasionally with distribution already in place. Premieres section is based at the fest’s largest venue, the Eccles.
The Killing Room, directed by Jonathan Liebesman and written by Gus Krieger and Ann Peacock, about four people who get in deeper than they imagined when they sign up for a psychological research study. Stars Chloë Sevigny, Peter Stormare, Clea DuVall, Timothy Hutton and Nick Cannon.
Let’s hope we’ll have some reviews and photos from the festival in January! Can’t wait!
Apologies for the delay in updates, but things have been downright dead quiet with Chloë these past few weeks. However, we finally have some news. Variety reports Jonathan Liebesman’s drama thriller The Killing Room, in which Chloë stars in an as-of-yet untitled role opposite Timothy Hutton, Nick Cannon, Peter Stormare and Clea DuVall, will screen at the upcoming American Film Market this November! From Variety.com:
A total of 513 films will be screened at the upcoming American Film Market, including 102 world premieres and 375 market preems. AFM runs Nov. 5-12 at its usual digs in Santa Monica.
Films making their world preems include Morgan Freeman-Christopher Walken topliner The Lovely Maiden, from Yari Film Group and also starring William H. Macy; Timothy Hutton-Chloë Sevigny starrer The Killing Room from ContentFilm Intl.; and Forest Whitaker topliner Powder Blue, from QED Intl. and also starring Jessica Biel and Ray Liotta.
That’s great news! Hopefully the screening equals to new photos this November. For more information on the film, please visit IMDb.com; the film’s screening schedule is available at thefilmcatalogue.com. Stay tuned to us for updates!
There hasn’t really been much news on Chloë’s current and upcoming projects, so I thought I’d post a quick round-up of what’s coming up for our favorite actress. Kicking things off with…
… a potential new project for Chloë! Women’s Wear Daily reports Chloë recently mentioned in an interview an upcoming film in which she stars alongside Patrick Wilson and Judy Greer. I haven’t been able to find any additional information on this film yet, but here’s to hoping it’s true! From WWD.com:
Chloë Sevigny, who kicked off her DJ set at Colette over the weekend with The Cramps, said she was heading back to the States to resume shooting Big Love, as well as a new film also starring Patrick Wilson and Judy Greer. She was shy about details, but said it’s set in the present day and her character is “kind of sassy, which is good, because I never get to be sexy!”
If you read the above excerpt, you will also know that Big Love has resumed Season 3 filming in the U.S. as the WGA writers’ strike ended some weeks back. Yay! The third season of the series will premiere on HBO sometime this summer.
And finally some tidbits: Peter and Catherine seems to have been indefinitely postponed, and the film has been removed from Chloë’s IMDb filmography so I’m not entirely sure what’s the film’s current status. If anyone knows something about this, please get in touch! Thank you. Meanwhile, The Killing Room has moved into post-production, and there’s still no word as to the rumor we had some time back about Chloë’s potential role in Terminator 4. We’ll keep you posted!
Although IMDb doesn’t currently list any upcoming projects for Chloë, it isn’t to say she doesn’t have any. Some of you will perhaps recall how we in September reported of an untitled Nick Cannon (short) film – now titled The Killing Room – that was to shoot in Louisiana at the end of October 2007. Well, although IMDb makes no mention of this project in Chloë’s filmography, Cannon, one of the film’s stars, recently confirmed her participation in the film in an interview with MTV. From MTV.com:
MTV: What’s next for you?
Cannon: So many things. … Film-wise, I just finished a film called The Killing Room, with Chloë Sevigny and Timothy Hutton. That’s a project I wanted to sink my teeth into.
MTV: I heard about that. It sounds like Saw but with a government conspiracy.
Cannon: Yeah! It has a Saw feel, but I’d say it’s a little more complex than that. It has a secret government background. But realistically, it’s four actors in one room just bouncing off each other, and it’s amazing. It’s method-style [acting], one room, theatrical, and it’s something you haven’t seen in a very long time.
The film is directed by Jonathan Liebesman, and also co-stars Clea DuVall, Peter Stormare and Timothy Hutton. The film’s IMDb page makes no mention of the film being a drama short, which would imply that The Killing Room is a full feature film after all. No release date(s) have yet been set for the film except that it will be out sometime in 2008. Although the film is categorized under “drama/thriller”, judging by the film’s name (as well as earlier title, Manbreak) and Cannon’s Saw comparison, I am expecting at least some gore and horror.
I’ll keep you posted in case any more information on this project of Chloë’s turns up!
