Monday Morning Open Thread

I know I haven't been posting much lately, but I'm hoping that the sudden and overdue arrival of nice weather will get me back out taking pictures and getting involved in stuff.

For now, here's some news about Sugar, the movie filmed here last summer.

Sony may get some 'Sugar' -Hollywood
Sony Pictures Classics is on the verge of acquiring theatrical rights for the Spanish-language film "Sugar," Ryan Fleck and Anna Boden's tale of immigration and baseball.

The company would acquire theatrical rights in North America and a number of Latin American territories. Television rights would remain with HBO, whose HBO Films produced the picture. The status of home video rights was unclear at press time.

Some parties close to the deal, however, emphasized that it hadn't closed yet.

It sounds like it may just hit theaters after all, but its hard to say from the article if it would be widely released or only in "some theaters."

Other than that, and our recent Spring Violence Festival, what else is going on?
