Jill Lewis is a former employee of Alamo Drafthouse, an organization at the center of the Austin film community that has hosted many events in partnership with Knowles over the years. She did not provide additional comment to IndieWire, but said in a public Facebook post that in her first exchange with Knowles he “grabbed my arm, asked me to come closer, and then told me he was on mushrooms, and that he and his wife had been talking about wanting to see me naked, and asked me to do just that with them that night.” When the alleged incident took place, Lewis was at an event for Fantastic Fest, which is the festival co-founded by Knowles and Alamo Drafthouse co-founder Tim League.

He’s become an object of loathing for his critics — most of whom direct their ire toward his conduct online, rather than his work — but that hasn’t seemed to slow his lightning-fast rise in the past five years. He already has an impressively long résumé for someone his age, having written genre-bending outings like Chronicle,American Ultra, Victor Frankenstein, and Mr. Right; written and directed Me Him Her; executive produced the TV series Channel Zero; and created and acted as lead writer for the BBC America show Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency, which is about to begin its second season. But just as impressive are the deals he’s made for products that haven’t hit the screen yet: He sold a spec for this winter’s Bright for a reported $3.5 million (an insane figure for the largely dying sector of mid-budget, non-franchise pictures), … [Read more...] about Who’s Afraid of Max Landis?
Sure, the first manned mission to Mars was going to be difficult no matter what — it’s a three-year trip further into space than any human has gone before — but this hard?

Just in case you can’t keep track of all the mishaps, both minor and major, both technical and emotional, that the Atlas crew and their loved ones face in the name of discovery, here’s a full chronological list. … [Read more...] about Everything That Goes Wrong on
