Less than six months after her renowned debut feature, “I’ve Heard the Mermaids Singing,” received a 4K restoration and new theatrical run, there’s word that several other early titles from pioneering filmmaker Patricia Rozema are set for their own restoration and distribution. As Deadline reports, the Montreal-based Film Associates International has brokered deals for Rozema’s second and third films, “White Room” (1990) and “When Night Is Falling” (1995), as well as her most recent feature, 2018’s “Mouthpiece.”

Kino Lorber has acquired North American rights for “White Room” and “When Night Is Falling” and U.S. rights for “Mouthpiece.” MUBI will also hold the streaming rights to “I’ve Heard the Mermaids Singing” for a year, “making it available in more than 230 territories worldwide as a double-bill with ‘Mouthpiece.’”

“Regarded as a classic in the LGBTQ+ cinema canon, the lesbian love story ‘When Night Is Falling’ revolves around a literature professor in a religious college, in a relationship with a male colleague, who embarks on a passionate affair with a female circus performer,” the source writes. “Following its debut at the Berlinale in 1995, its North American release prompted unexpected controversy after Canada’s ‘The Globe and Mail’ dropped an advertisement for the film showing two women kissing, and in the U.S. the Motion Picture Assn. of America applied an NC-17 rating.”

“White Room” follows a flailing young man who teams up with an artist to solve the murder of a rock star. As for “Mouthpiece,” Rozema herself summed it up as: “Lena Dunham meets Charlie Kaufman. A grown-up ‘Inside Out.’ A fierce millennial woman is radicalized upon the sudden death of her mother.”

Other Rozema film deals include Salzgeber & Co. obtaining German, Austrian, and Swiss rights to “I’ve Heard the Mermaids Singing” and “When Night Is Falling,” and Bulldog Films’ planned distribution of “Mouthpiece” in the U.K.

Kino Lorber is also set to release the Cannes award winner “I’ve Heard the Mermaids Singing” on Blu-ray September 13. Its extras will feature new commentary from Rozema, a conversation between Rozema and artist Laurie Anderson, and several of Rozema’s short films. Additionally, “I’ve Heard the Mermaids Singing” was recently added to the Criterion Channel.

“A bracingly innovative and trailblazing artist, Patricia Rozema stands apart as one of the foremost independent filmmakers of her generation,” said Richard Lorber, President & CEO of Kino Lorber. “Her nimble, intelligent filmmaking celebrates the rich inner lives of women and queer people, and her wide-ranging oeuvre remains every bit as relevant today as upon original release.” He continued, “Kino Lorber was honored to release the 4K restoration of ‘I’ve Heard the Mermaids Singing’ earlier this year and introduce a new generation of cinephiles to Patricia’s work. With this latest partnership, we couldn’t be more thrilled to share more of her boldly inventive and richly charming films with audiences across the United States and Canada.”

A member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, Rozema’s other directing credits include “Into the Forest,” “Mansfield Park,” and episodes of “Sex/Life,” “Anne with an E,” and “Mozart in the Jungle.” She will head TIFF 2022’s Platform jury.

“Dare to be very personal,” Rozema advised women filmmakers, in an interview with Women and Hollywood. “That doesn’t necessarily mean very autobiographical, just personal: make sure the emotions come from the most dangerously honest part of yourself. If you aren’t feeling it, nobody will.”

Oscar Mayer Introduces Hot Dog Popsicles

If you enjoy a hot dog, you can have it as a popsicle, thanks to Oscar Mayer, CNN reports.

The company announced it will introduce the “Cold Dog,” a frozen popsicle that tastes like its hot dog with “both refreshing and smokey, umami notes” and a mustard swirl.

The popsicle comes after lovers of the food brand asked for a poll, and followers of the Instagram account stated this was a “genius” idea.

After the overwhelming fan excitement for our beloved Cold Dog, it was a no-brainer to make this hot dog-inspired frozen pop a reality,” said Anne Field, an Oscar Mayer spokesperson, said in a press release.

The frozen weiner isn’t available nationwide just yet. Right now, you can find it in Long Beach, New York City, New Orleans, and Alpharetta, GA at Popbar locations for just $2.

Oscar Mayer is known for making shocking food items. A bologna face mask was also introduced by the company owned by Kraft earlier this year that sold out on Amazon.

Charlie Sheen Settles Lawsuit With Ex-Girlfriend Who Claims He Exposed Her To HIV & Agrees To Pay $120K

Charlie Sheen settled a 2017 lawsuit that accused the actor of exposing an ex-girlfriend to HIV. As a result, he has agreed to pay $120,000.

According to TMZ, the 56-year-old agreed to pay a woman listed as “Russian émigré” in court documents $120,000 over 12 months in $10,000 increments.

The woman states she met Sheen in September 2015 and had unprotected sex with him for the first time in October of that same year. Subsequently, the “Two and a Half Men” actor shared his HIV status after their first unprotected encounter.

When asked why he didn’t tell her about his status, Sheen responded that it was “none of her f***king business,” the court filing stated.

The unknown woman also claims that the father of five gave her “medication aimed to prevent her from contracting HIV,” Huffington Post reports.

The filing also states that Sheen told her that the antiviral drugs were unnecessary and “convenient rumors of the medical community.”

On His HIV Status

Sheen shared his HIV status in 2015 while Matt Lauer interviewed him on the “Today” show. Shortly after, his ex-fiancé Scottine Ross sued him for assault and battery, stating he failed to tell her about his HIV status.

Speaking with Piers Morgan in 2016, Sheen said he hadn’t told 25 of his sex partners of his status because it was used against him.

The only times I didn’t tell them was because the last 25 times they used it against me and used my medical condition for their own folly and financial gain,” Sheen told Morgan. “Here’s the great news. No one has been infected by me. No one.

Minnesota Timberwolves’ Taurean Prince Arrested On Fugitive Warrant For Drug & Gun Charges

Got ’em! Minnesota Timberwolves forward Tauren Prince was arrested in Miami this week for a fugitive warrant stemming from a traffic stop back in May.

According to authorities, Prince was stopped in Dallas due to an expired registration and police reportedly found two handguns, a THC vape pen and a container of marijuana inside the vehicle. Prince was charged with unlawful carrying of a weapon, possession of marijuana and possession of a controlled substance.

After nearly three months, police issued a warrant for the NBA star’s arrest after test results found that the vape pen contained 1/100th of an ounce of THC. Taurean Prince was taken into custody at Miami International Airport on Thursday night.

Prince’s attorney Kent Schaffer released a statement to PEOPLE saying:

Apparently in the last week and a half they issued a warrant for his arrest because they recovered 1/100th of an ounce of THC, which is probably the smallest amount you can have.”

The only reason we knew was because he was going out of the country for vacation. He was in the airport and his name came up showing that there was a warrant and they took him into custody.”

After Tauren’s arrest, Schaffer stated that the baller was the legal owner of the firearms found by authorities, and said the situation is “unnecessary and embarrassing,”

It should not have been handled in the manner that  it was, its totally unnecessary and embarrassing, but we predict that this case is going to be dismissed in due course.”
