This Thursday Film Independent and LACMA (Los Angeles County Museum of Art) launches their new Film Independent at LACMA series, which brings together filmmakers, artists, and more for a series of special guest-curated programs — ” … presenting cinema in an artistic and historical context.” The latest program will host Jason Reitman who will direct a live reading of John Hughes’ The Breakfast Club . The Juno director recently announced on Twitter that Patton Oswalt would be taking on the role of Brian Johnson, Anthony Michael Hall’s character who had a penchant for flare guns. The Office’s Mindy Kaling takes on the curiously quiet Allison, while Spider-Man 2 star J.K. Simmons will read the part of school janitor (and blackmailer) Carl. Reitman is expected to announce other cast members this week, but for now the rest remain a mystery. The event will be a really cool opportunity to see Hughes’ beloved 1985 classic in a new light and performed more spontaneously.
