In Burying the Ex, Anton Yelchin and Ashley Greene play lovers — he’s really nice; she’s really overbearing — whose relationship go fast downhill once they move in together. How to find a way out? Luckily, the girlfriend suffers a freak accident and dies; unluckily, she rises from the grave.
Besides Ashley Greene and Anton Yelchin, Burying the Ex also features Alexandra Daddario and Oliver Cooper. Nicolas Chartier’s Voltage Pictures is involved in the film’s production.
Among Chartier’s other recent producing credits (in various capacities) are Robert Redford’s little-seen The Company You Keep, the Matthew McConaughey star vehicle Dallas Buyers Club, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s sex romantic comedy Don Jon. Chartier was also one of the producers of Best Picture Academy Award winner The Hurt Locker; his notorious Oscar campaign — pitting Kathryn Bigelow’s war drama The Hurt Locker against James Cameron’s fantasy Avatar — eventually got him barred from the ceremony.
Ashley Greene movies
Ashley Greene is best known as the vampire Alice Cullen in the wildly popular Twilight movie franchise starring Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, and Taylor Lautner. The final Twilight entry, Bill Condon’s The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 was released in late 2012.
Since then, according to the IMDb Ashley Greene has been featured in only one film: Randall Miller’s musical drama CBGB, starring Alan Rickman. Additionally, Greene has three movies (possibly) to come out in 2014:
- Oliver Blackburn’s horror thriller Random, featuring Lucas Till and Haley Bennett — and in which Greene’s look is reminiscent of Noomi Rapace’s and Rooney Mara’s in the two The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo movies;
- Zach Braff’s comedy-drama Wish I Was Here, with Jim Parsons, Kate Hudson, and Mandy Patinkin;
- Rhys Thomas’ coming-of-age tale Staten Island Summer, with Graham Phillips and Zack Pearlman.
