  • Then there is Brit Marling, the new indie-darling who premiered two films at Sundance, Another Earth and Sound of My Voice (and screened them again at SXSW), both of which she co-wrote, produced and starred in. She told TOH, “The technology is allowing young filmmakers to do it now, you don’t have to wait for permission to do this anymore…you just need to pick a start date.” For Marling, taking charge is her way in the door. Next up: Marling is set to star in Jamie Babbit’s lesbian thriller Breaking the Girl with co-star Madeline Zima, which screenwriter Guinevere Turner tells After Ellen is “a total guilty pleasure movie in the tradition of Wild Things and Showgirls,” complete with girl-on-girl makeout scenes. And Marling and Sound of My Voice director Zal Batmanglij are reteaming on The East.
