Writer-director Drake Doremus, whose own long-distance relationship was the inspiration for the new feature "Like Crazy," will be joining us for a live online chat at noon on Nov. 2.
After its premiere at this year's Sundance Film Festival, the drama about the sometimes troubled love affair between a Los Angeles furniture designer ("Star Trek's" Anton Yelchin) and a London journalist ("The Tempest's" Felicity Jones) sparked a spirited bidding war, with Paramount Pictures and independent producer Indian Paintbrush grabbing the film for some $4 million. The largely improvised film, whose cast includes future "Hunger Games" star Jennifer Lawrence, opens this weekend in Los Angeles and New York to strong reviews.
The 28-year-old Doremus, whose last feature was the 2010 Sundance selection "Douchebag," recently completed principal photography on his next feature, which also stars Jones. The as-yet untitled movie also stars Guy Pearce, Amy Ryan and Kyle MacLachlan.
