Anyone know anything about the movie Blake and Winona Ryder are working on called Water Pill?

Perez Hilton and numerous others reported on it along with the (false) rumor that they were engaged.

I think I read somewhere else that Blake wrote the movie, but I can't find that in any report.

If not, is Blake returning to acting? Is he scoring the film? Interesting possibilities.

Is there somewhere that confirmed the engagement rumor as false?

Jenny told me Blake wrote a screenplay (it's not in any report). Water Pill is probably what he wrote (my guess).

For what it's worth, on Perez Hilton's site he said "Update: Despite the reports, Winona's publicist tells us she is NOT engaged - but they are dating."

Oh yeah, I read that... and I'm not saying I believe it one way or another, because there's no way we can know what's going on in their personal lives, but I'm guessing publicists probably lie quite a bit when it comes to stuff like this if the celeb doesn't want the whole world to know something.

That and I think celeb "news" sources such as Perez Hilton are hardly credible. *shrug*

Erik Macarthur, whom Blake replaced on Salute Your Shorts, and a cast member (with Jenny obviously) in Pleasentville, is credited as producing Water Pills according to IMDB

This might just be me, but I have to laugh at the thread titles sometimes. Especially the ones pertaining to Blake- there's always this tone of "What the hell?" "Dammit" "Ahhh fuck".
Impatience makes the heart grow fonder...? Razz

I'd hoped it'd end up showing at Sundance, but no such luck.

WATER PILLS

by Scott Knopf
(2009-03-05)
2008, Un-rated, 25 minutes
Carrie, a desperate show mother (played by Winona Ryder) puts all of her hopes and dreams of success on her daughter Lily, an aspiring actress. Things are looking good for the duo when Lily (Jasmine Jessica Anthony) gets a call back for a feature film. Even though the aspirations of fame are her mothers and not her own, the young girl shows her own determination and drive when it’s needed. Conflict arises when Carrie’s boyfriend calls and asks her to come home. Without any consideration for her daughter, Carrie starts packing. Lily is forced to make a decision: abandon potential success for her pill-popping mom or strike out on her own and fend for herself.

Some of you might know the director, Blake Sennett, by another name. His birth name is Blake Swendson. His usual stage name is Blake Soper. His band’s name is Rilo Kiley. And his character’s name on “Salute Your Shorts” was Pinsky. (Author’s note: That’s how I know him!) Despite changing names more frequently than Elton John does costumes, Blake has written and directed an impressive short film.

“Water Pills” is a strong film with a solid beginning, middle, and end. All of the major performances are note-worthy, especially the one from the film’s youngest star. While sharing the weight of the film with some talented co-stars, Anthony (or JJA as I’m sure the teen mags will start calling her) really nails her role. Her character is strong, nearly untouchable, and deals with her mom’s craziness by working harder, letting the snide comments slide right by her. Overall, everyone involved with the film pulled their own weight and it shows

Sounds interesting. Let us know what you guys think of it. And as a side note, why has he had so many different last names?

That's one of those things that I wondered. I don't recall ever hearing his birth last name. I can of course understand a birth name and a stage name, but having an additional one for his band is what surprised me.

I can understand if he wanted to use a different last name for the band to distance himself from his past acting days...but I would automatically think he'd use his birth name. Guess not, obviously.

Whoa! The mystery is solved.

It's kinda crazy that all these names happen to begin with S. That always seemed like an unreal coincidence, so I just assumed he made up random last names all beginning with the letter "s".

I'm glad the mystery has finally been solved. Hopefully it's not a legendary tale like where RK got their name.
