Variety – Lost City and Bold Crayon are set to produce and finance “Buffaloed,” which will star Zoey Deutch, who will also produce.

Production is set to get underway this month in Toronto with Tanya Wexler directing. Brian Sacca penned the script.

The story follows homegrown hustler Peg Dahl (Deutch), who will do anything to escape Buffalo, N.Y. After getting into some trouble, Peg finds herself crippled by debt and with her chances of a brighter future outside of her hometown squandered, she decides to become a debt collector herself and wages war with the “kingpin” of debt collecting in Buffalo.

Zoey, Tanya and Brian have been tremendous collaborators throughout the development stage and we’re all so excited to roll camera on what we’re certain will be an amazing performance and picture,” Lost City’s president John Finemore commented. “And we’re thrilled to go on this journey with our new friends at Bold Crayon.”

The indie dramedy will be produced by Lost City’s Mason Novick and Finemore and Bold Crayon’s Jeffrey Katz and Michael Bannor MacGregor, with Sacca also producing. James Hoppe, Elizabeth Grave, and Brooke Davies will executive produce for Lost City, as will Phil Quartararo of Bold Crayon, along with Mary Anne Waterhouse and Kirsten Ames. Hyperion Equity Partners provided the financing on behalf of Bold Crayon. Grave brought in the project and shepherded for Lost City. CAA and ICM are representing domestic rights.

Deutch can currently be seen in Netflix’s original romantic comedy “Set It Up.” Earlier this year, Deutch garnered positive reviews for her performance in Max Winkler’s “Flower.” She also produced and starred in “The Year of Spectacular Men,” written by her sister, Madelyn Deutch, and directed by their mother, Lea Thompson.

Deutch is represented by CAA and Gilbertson Entertainment. Sacca is represented by ICM Partners and Kirsten Ames Management. Wexler is represented by Verve and Circle of Confusion and attorney Lawrence Kopeikin.

Zoey Deutch sited down for an interview on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on July 16 in New York City.

The 23-year-old actress was on the show to promote her Netflix movie Set It Up and joked how she “is the first person to come on [the] show and promote a movie a month late.

During the interview  Zoey opened up about getting to introduce Hillary Clinton at a recent event and speaking at an event on the anniversary of Roe v. Wade.

One of the things I learned while I was there is how important it is to call your senators if there is an issue you really believe in,” Zoey said. “Call your senator! I know it seems scary. Every time I call I feel like, ‘Oh it doesn’t matter, my voice is not going to matter and this call is not going to matter.’ But it does and they count every call, they count every message. So if something is very important to you right now, please call.

She also talked about her new accents during the interview with Jimmy Fallon. The 23-year-old actress started slipping in and out of a new accent right after she sat down and explained that she’s learning the accents for a new project.

I’m slipping into this accent that I’m doing… it’s happening already. I knew it would happen,” Zoey explained. “What happened is I’m learning two accents at the same time. One is sort of like if the Chicago accent had a baby with the Fargo accent and that baby smoked cigarettes for 20 years. The other accent that I’m learning is like a high-pitched baby voice.

Zoey was wearing a black dress and jacket by Miu Miu Fall/Winter 2018 collection and a Prada bag.

Zoey Deutch joined her mom Lea Thompson and sister Madelyn for a photoshoot and intreview for Allure‘s Good Issue:

Thompson, 57, has two daughters — Zoey, 23, and Madelyn, 27 — who followed in her footsteps when they became actresses. The trio just finished making The Year of Spectacular Men together. “We devised it as a way to give ourselves jobs that we knew nobody was going to,” says Madelyn, who wrote, scored, and acted in the movie. Thompson directed it; Zoey produced and acted in it.

Lea: “As a parent, they always say, ‘It’s not what you say; it’s what you do.’ So I try to model goodness for my children.”

Zoey: “I remember that whenever you’d feel bad or upset or insecure, I’d watch you translate that into doing good for someone else.”

Lea: “I feel strongly that doing little good things all the time is what gives us self-esteem and a sense of self. Being generous, smiling, being kind.”

Madelyn: “Being of service.”

Lea: “I grew up super poor in Minnesota and raised them completely differently. I learned you don’t tell kids that they’re talented and smart. You tell them that they have the things they have because of hard work. They were so understanding that I had to work.”

Madelyn: “You included us in work as much as possible — sets, conflict, all of it. It gave us a sense of responsibility and made us love work.”

Zoey: “It’s been great to look at you like a coworker and a human. There’s all this pressure on mothers to have all the answers, but I respect you enough to know that you won’t be right all the time.”

Lea: “It’s nice, but I mean, I’ll always be your mom. I’ll always yell at you.”

Zoey: “You’ll always annoy us.”

The Last Magazine – If most teen movies are concerned with a loss of innocence, then Max Winkler’s new film Flower, out this week and starring Zoey Deutch, is not your typical teen movie. In Flower, the 23-year-old Deutch plays Erica Vandross, a seventeen-year-old whose sexual confidence far outstrips her certainty in other parts of life. Her modus operandi is to offer blow jobs to men she can extort for money, saving up so that she can bail her father out of jail. The film starts with her giving one of these blow jobs to a policeman (“Where’d you learn to give head like that?” he gasps. “Middle school,” she says impassively) and ends with a visit to prison. In between, there’s a crusade to bring down a male teacher that her stepbrother Luke, played by Joey Morgan, has accused of molestation as well as a Thelma and Louise-esque escape attempt, with Luke and Erica speeding across a Joshua tree-punctuated landscape in a stolen Saab convertible and dressed in clothes seemingly inspired by Floridian retirees—Erica in particular has a penchant for flamingo-colored sunglasses and palm-tree prints. The showdown, when it comes, is emotional, not physical, and involves a seemingly innocuous moment that causes Erica to break down in Luke’s arms.

I think that ultimately most movies portray vulnerability as a loss of innocence, but by the end of this movie, it’s the opposite direction,” says Deutch, who in real life speaks with the same breakneck cadence as her character. Though the plot is driven largely by some decisions of dubious morality on Erica’s part, the audience feels at least empathetic, if not quite sympathetic, toward her—a fact that speaks volumes about Deutch’s ability to tap into the subtleties of being human and, more specifically, a teenager who’s desperately trying to cover her fear of abandonment. “You have to believe that beyond all of Erica’s bravado there’s this fragile girl,” points out Deutch. “A movie like Flower is about the regaining of innocence and about the learning process of allowing yourself to be vulnerable.

Deutch has Hollywood running through her veins—her parents are director Howard Deutch and actress/director Lea Thompson, while her sister, Madelyn, is also an actress—and may have dabbled briefly in competitive jazz dance growing up (Thompson also briefly flirted with a career in dancing before turning to acting), but she always knew she wanted to act. At the prestigious Los Angeles County High School for the Arts, she majored in both performance and visual arts. “I have an immense amount of gratitude for being surrounded by so many people who do similar, like-minded things,” she says. She started acting nearly ten years ago, with her first part on the Disney Channel’s The Suite Life on Deck, but more recent roles have included the love interest and only female in the main cast of Richard Linklater’s Eighties frat-house film Everybody Wants Some!!, a redeemed bully in the teen drama Before I Fall, and the socialite Oona O’Neill, girlfriend of Nicholas Hoult’s JD Salinger, in the biopic Rebel in the Rye. Later this year, she will appear in The Year of Spectacular Men alongside her sister, who also wrote the script and score. The film was directed by her mother. (“Everybody always wants some kind of dirty detail—I would too, a mother and two sisters made a movie!—but the truth is, we got along really well and respected each other throughout the entire process,” she has previously said.)

But despite this show reel, Deutch says that Flower’s Erica was her “dream role. “The character felt so complicated and frustrating and vulnerable, and I’d watched so many of my male friends get these types of roles,” she says. “I think there’s a lot of strength in vulnerability.”

The movie was shot over only seventeen days, a short amount of time to ask actors to form any sort of bond together, but a lot of the work was done beforehand. Deutch cites texts such as Go Ask Alice, about a fifteen-year-old teenage runaway who develops a drug habit, and Reviving Ophelia: Saving the Selves of Adolescent Girls, a 1994 analysis by therapist Mary Pipher of the depression, eating disorders, and low self-esteem she saw in her young female clients, as being key to helping her understand what she saw as Erica’s personality disorder. “How I interpreted it was that Erica is somebody who makes serious efforts to avoid abandonment and she has this distorted sense of self,” she says. “She has patterns of unstable relationships in her life.” With Winkler’s approval, she attended therapy, answering questions as if she were Erica. The therapist, she says, knew that her name was Zoey and that she would play the role of Erica in Flower but didn’t know that Deutch was attempting to actually personify Erica during their sessions. “We wanted her opinion firsthand on what she thought if I was Erica.”

That Deutch embodies the fragile world of her character so completely and so easily is the result of an environment where she didn’t feel intimidated to do what needed to be done. It was also the first time she’d worked with a female cinematographer, Carolina Costa, who was responsible for the hazy, sun-bleached visual direction of the film. “Not only did she make me feel safe, she made me feel supported, and I loved the freedom that she gave me to move around,Deutch says.

Overall, according to Deutch, the writers and Winkler were collaborative and open, and she never felt like she couldn’t voice an opinion, particularly if she thought her character would do or say something different. Prior to shooting, she was encouraged to spend a lot of time with Maya Eshet and Dylan Gelula, who play her best friends Claudine and Kala in the film. The trio would go to the mall “and get milkshakes together” and scour vintage stores to find clothes they thought their characters would wear. “Max was really adamant that he wanted every fiber of my DNA to go into this,Deutch says. The actress also helped design Erica’s bedroom, working with the designers and artists who created it. “Ultimately, whether we realized it or not, this allowed us to feel very comfortable in a really organic way.”

For Deutch, the research has always been part of the appeal. For the role of Oona O’Neill (daughter of Eugene) in Rebel in the Rye, she delighted in delving into a world that was so well documented and threw herself into learning about elite New York society in the Forties. “Here’s this person, O’Neill, and she was taking voice lessons, she had this affected Atlantic accent, she took these etiquette classes, she would drink a martini and smoke a cigarette,” she says. “It was a very interesting world. It was the first time I’d played a real person, and there was that pressure that goes with playing a real person—it becomes a part of their history, and you want to do justice to that.

Doing justice to her characters is a theme throughout Deutch’s performances. There’s a clear line of empathy that runs through her roles as she brings them to life and injects them with depth. Growing up, she admired the 1937 Katharine Hepburn film Stage Door for the intensity of its characters. Like real humans, none of the women in the film are objectively good or bad people, but rather, inhibit a world of nuance. Deutch knows, too, that Erica is not perfect, “but being able to live with her and being really able to understand why she does what she does was really important to me,” she says. “Nothing Erica does in the movie is ever spontaneous.

Flower is out Friday.

Zoey Deutch paid a visit to ‘The Late Late Show with James Corden’ on March 27, 2018.

During the interview , Zoey was asked about her new tattoo, a portrait of her dog inked on her ankle, and the group wonders if it’s a bit much.

It is my dog. Can I ask a serious question? Is it awww or is it truly psycho that I got a portrait of my dog on a very exposed part of my body?,” Zoey questioned.

Her name is Mabel and she’s also named Daniel. I have two water bowls so she can decide if she wants to be Mabel or Daniel depending on the day,” Zoey continued.

The actress was clad in a Self-Portrait Resort 2018 ensemble.
