might not know that
Edie Falco was one

early movies for
filmmakers like Hal Hartley and Abel Ferrara.
So it's exciting to hear she's hooking up with
out director Todd Graff ("Camp") on the
upcoming "Cult Figure."
The new film, produced by lesbian movie
mogul Christine Vachon, deals with a teenager

"Secret Life" premiered in September in the
U.K., so it's safe to assume that this critically
acclaimed documentary will arrive soon on
these shores as well.
Singer screams 'Trick 'r Treat' as producer
There's no rest for out "Superman Returns"
director Bryan Singer.
We have previously reported that the busy
filmmaker has bis eye on a "Logan's Run"
remake and on the long-gestating Harvey Milk
biopic "The Mayor of Castro Street."
Now comes word that
Singer will pro-

documentary "Stephen Fry:
The Secret Life of the Manic
Fry — probably best known
in the U.S. for "Peter's
Friends" and "V for Vendetta"
— discusses how his mental dis-
order drove him to the brink of
suicide, and how some bipolar
people are willing to endure the

of chaos and evil — from a high school princi-
pal who's also a serial killer, to a Halloween-
hating woman and her holiday-obsessed hubby.

coach will be the
kind of demand-

destroy the athletes
under his care, not at
all the nice guy
Louganis' fans have come
to know and love.
So look for the out
Olympic diver to be
twirling his metaphorical
mustache when the movie
— which also stars cult
movie queen Karen Black —
hits the festival circuit in 2007.
