Welcome To Pine Grove! – Fanart & Article

We needed a poster of Welcome To Pine Grove! for the site, so I made this one with Liz and Ellen Burstyn.

Elizabeth’s photo is a manip of 2 of her pics. | Photo 1 | Photo 2 |

Hopefully we’ll see soon how she looks like in the movie so I can make something more appropriate, but in the meantime I hope you like it! 

We also found this article (nothing new) on HT City newspaper:

The Expanse | James S. A. Corey About Elizabeth

James S. A. Corey account (should be Ty Franck posting on that account) said that, in the scene between Anna and Amos in the last episode of The Expanse, the lines “because it needs to be done?” was Liz’s idea. 😀

Well… we all know she has an immense talent in everything that she does and having great ideas for her characters is not a surprise.

Her roles are all under her skin, you can see that by how deeply she goes into their heads and hearts. She knows them completely and at the same time she knows all the characters she has scenes with.

It’s a work that all the actors should do, but you don’t see it done often.

We have always liked that in Elizabeth. During interviews she’s always able to discuss also other actors’ roles. It’s necessary if you want to play someone accurately without missing any spot.

So that’s why it’s not a surprise she had the idea of “because it needs to be done?”, which implies that she understands Amos, since Anna understands him too.

Anyway this is what Ty Franck posted:

Now, to be fair, doing a callback to “because it needs to be done?” in this moment was in fact Elizabeth Mitchell’s idea. She has fantastic instincts.

Welcome to Pine Grove! – Laura&Her Mother: Emotional Core In The Film

This is a very nice article about the movie, but what is very interesting is that they say that the relationship between Laura and her mom should help establish an emotional core to the film. YAY! That is exactly what we were expecting! 😀

http://elizabeth-mitchell.org/skin2017/WelcomeToPineGrove.jpgThe cast for “Welcome to Pine Grove!” continues to grow by the day. Last week, both Ellen Burstyn and James Caan joined the cast in the Rom-Com. Since then, we’ve had two more casting announcements to add to the impressive cast. The new cast members include some big TV and film veterans to certainly be excited about. Among the group is Elizabeth Mitchell, Loretta Devine, and more.

“Welcome to Pine Grove” producer Harrison Powell announced Mitchell’s casting, which comes on the heels of a group of four yesterday. That group included Devine, Ann-Margret, Christopher Lloyd, and Jane Curtain. The latest addition helps to solidify a quickly expanding cast. Mitchell is best known for her role on “Lost” which netted her an Emmy nomination in 2010. Mitchell is set to play Burstyn’s daughter, which should help establish an emotional core to the film.

“Welcome to Pine Grove!,” touted as “Mean Girls” in a senior living community, has picked up a very good ensemble now. The cast is full of Oscar and Emmy nominees and winners, which should help bring out the considerable talent. Michael Lembeck, who directs “Welcome to Pine Grove!,” has previous experience directing both film and television. Lembeck and Mitchell worked together on “The Santa Clause 2” and “The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause.”Donald Martin wrote the screenplay based on a story from Powell. With an impressive cast and some funny material, this looks like it could quickly become a smash hit.

Welcome to Pine Grove! – About Laura’s Mom

http://elizabeth-mitchell.org/skin2017/WelcomeToPineGrove.jpgWe found this article that is more specific about why Laura’s mom moves into Pine Grove Senior Community. She accidentally set her home on fire.

It will be so interesting exploring this mother-daughter relationship. We can’t wait!

Actor Elizabeth Mitchell has joined the cast of romantic comedy “Welcome to Pine Grove!”.

Mitchell will play the daughter of Ellen Burstyn’s character, reported Variety.

Michael Lembeck is directing the film from a screenplay by Donald Martin based on a story by Harrison Powell.

The story is inspired by Powell’s grandmother’s own experience of moving into a retirement community.

In the film, Burstyn plays an independent widow who moves into the Pine Grove Senior Community after accidentally setting her home on fire and realises that it is like being in high school all over again.

Mitchell plays a successful real estate agent with a complicated relationship with her mother.

The cast also includes James Caan as the love interest of Burstyn’s character and Ann-Margret, Loretta Devine, Jane Curtin, and Christopher Lloyd as Pine Grove residents.

The Astute Films production is currently filming in Atlanta.
