Oscar Isaac performs onstage during reception honoring Joel and Ethan Coen and T Bone Burnett to celebrate the music of ‘Inside Llewyn Davis’ at Buffalo Club on November 13, 2013 in Santa Monica, California.
Zajaros and Lemole said: “Films like this are the reason why we got into the business. The script is absolutely incredible and the message so important, which should be apparent from the superb talent that the script has attracted. Tyler and Michael are extremely talented and we couldn’t be more excited to be working with them.”

Dakota Johnson, Bruce Dern Joining ‘The Peanut Butter Falcon’ With T-Bone Burnett Soundtrack
Dakota Johnson and Bruce Dern are joining Shia LaBeouf in The Peanut Butter Falcon for Armory Film. The film, was penned and will be directed by Tyler Nilson and Michael Schwartz (The Moped Diaries). Newcomer Zachary Gottsagen (Becoming Bulletproof), who is the inspiration for the film, will play the principal character of Zak.
Gottsagen lives with high-functioning Down syndrome, and became the inspiration for The Peanut Butter Falcon after writing/directing duo Tyler Nilson and Michael Schwartz met him while working at a non-profit arts organization. The Peanut Butter Falcon follows a down-on-his-luck crab fisherman as he embarks on a journey to get a young man with Down syndrome to a professional wresting school in rural North Carolina and away from the retirement home where he’s lived most of his life. Cameras will roll in Savannah, GA on June 17.
Armory Films’ Tim Zajaros and Christopher Lemole are both financing and producing the film. Also producing are Bona Fide Productions’ Albert Berger and Ron Yerxa (Little Miss Sunshine, Nebraska), T-Bone Burnett (Crazy Heart), Lije Sarki, and David Thies. Burnett will also produce the soundtrack.
Burnett won an Oscarfor Original Song for Crazy Heart in 2009, and was also nominated for Cold Mountain in 2003.
Johnson is repped by WME; Dern by Innovative Artists and Pure Arts; Burnett by L J Entertainment, and Nilson, Schwartz and Sarki are represented by Management 360 and Bloom/Hergott.
R.I.P Prince. i wish we better appreciated living music legends while they were still alive...here are some amazing music legends we still have with us with incredible discographies.

Singer and banjo player Ralph Stanley, the bluegrass pioneer who has been making records for more than 60 years, died yesterday. He was 89 years old. Stanley first started recording in the late 1940s, as the younger half of the Stanley Brothers. His brother Carter died in 1966. Starting in 1967, Ralph performed with his group the Clinch Mountain Boys – and in 2002, two years after receiving the Living Legend medal from the Library of Congress, Ralph Stanley finally recorded and released his first solo album. Today we’ll salute him by listening back to a conversation he had then with Terry Gross, in 2002.
If there’s a recording for which Ralph Stanley may be most famous, it’s his contribution to the Grammy-winning, platinum-selling soundtrack album of the Coen Brothers 2000 film O Brother, Where Art Thou? Stanley’s haunting solo performance won the Grammy that year for best male country vocal performance – and, like its title, it’s even more haunting to hear, sixteen years later, as part of his obituary. The name of the song is “O Death.”
I wrote this song with the Civil Wars and [soundtrack producer] T-Bone Burnett, and we all happened to be in the same city on the same day, and I was working with T-Bone a lot on the soundtrack, just putting songs together. I had this title that I had been working with called ‘Safe & Sound,’ and I just knew that I wanted it to deal with the empathy, sort of the more sensitive side, the bittersweet side of this story. Never imagining that this would ever be picked or a single, ’cause it’s a lullaby. This song was such an amazing experience, because it’s like it just happened.
Remember when @taylorswift wrote ‘Safe and Sound’ with T Bone Burnett and the Civil Wars and it was amazing and she sang it live on the Red Tour and with the Civil Wars at the Ryman auditorium and they won a grammy cause me too. @taylornation
