The News: Sony Classics Happily Married

Some of today's movie news of note from around New York:

--Does Variety still have reporters in New York? I only ask because Gregg Goldstein continues to yield a wealth of local scoops for The Hollywood Reporter, including today's revelation that Sony Pictures Classics last weekend acquired Ira Sachs' Toronto and NYFF selection Married Life for distribution. He notes the continuing scores for Sidney Kimmel Entertainment, which backed the Patricia Clarkson-Chris Cooper drama as well as TIFF's celebrated Ryan Gosling entry Lars and the Real Girl. Charlie Kaufman's Synecdoche, New York is also en route from SKE to further haunt and mystify theatergoers in the months ahead.

--The Reporter adds that HBO Films has greenlighted the nonmusical feature adaptation of the Broadway smash Grey Gardens -- with Jessica Lange and Drew Barrymore as Big and Little Edie Beale. I'm more than a little frightened of the prospects here, but Vulture has an amusing guess today at how the the feline angle might play out (above).

--If you can't wait for the NYFF screening, word on the street is that producers Jason Kliot and Joana Vicente will be previewing a few clips from Brian De Palma's Iraq hodgepodge Redacted tomorrow night at the Apple Store SoHo. IndieWIRE is hosting the event; it starts at 7:30, and you can get more information over at the site.

--Dave Kehr gets philosophical over at his blog: "And to think this was once a proud country of breast fetishists." God, what a dick.
