The competition kicks off today at SXSW as the festival gets underway officially in Austin. One of the pics in the Narrative Feature Competition section is The Strange Ones, which will be making its world premiere Saturday morning at the Stateside Theatre. Lauren Wolkstein and Christopher Radcliff co-directed the mystery thriller, which stars Alex Pettyfer and James Freedson-Jackson as brothers surrounded by mysterious events as they make their way across a remote American landscape. On the surface all seems normal, but what appears to be a simple vacation soon gives way to a dark and complex web of secrets. WME is repping sales.

The pic is based on Wolkstein and Radcliff’s short film of the same name that also made the fest rounds. Producers include Eric Schultz (James White), Archer Gray’s Shani Geva, Sébastien Aubert, Gamechanger Films’ Mynette Louie and Daniela Taplin Lundberg (The Kids Are All Right, Patti Cake$).

At age 26, actor-model Alex Pettyfer has built a high-profile resumé (Lee Daniels’ The Butler, Magic Mike). The multi-talented Brit admits he’s “always wanted to be in control.” Now he’s accomplishing that goal with his newly founded Upturn Publishing, an independent, L.A.-based publisher that aims to spotlight undiscovered writing talent. Pettyfer discusses this new creative challenge in our video series Momentum: A Day in the Life, which offers viewers a glimpse into the busy lives of influential young celebrities.

ettyfer launched Upturn after reading Ashley Mansour’s manuscript for young-adult dystopian sci-fi novel Blood, Ink, and Fire. He decided to help the writer realize her dream. “A lot of books don’t get the recognition for years because the publishing houses feel like they need to have a certain momentum behind the book before they give it a push,” he says. “I just want to give an unknown author the kind of voice in that sense.”

He also highlights his prominent role in comedy-drama Elvis & Nixon, in which he co-stars as Elvis Presley’s best friend, Jerry Schilling. Pettyfer took first-hand on-set advice from the real-life Schilling, who co-produced the film. “He lived it,” Pettyfer says. “It’s not like you can play the guy and then research him, and then he goes away. He was there every day, but he was very supportive. I actually preferred the fact that he was there. It’s the unknown that’s hard, where you don’t know what you’re going to do next.”

While Pettyfer’s schedule is daunting, he thrives on the excitement of new opportunities. “I always like accepting a challenge,” he says.

Alex Pettyfer is helping launch a new book titled “Blood, Ink, & Fire” with his production company and he is teasing the release with this special new video.

In the clip, the 25-year-old actor is seen shirtless while getting a tattoo of the book’s logo on his back.

“Blood, Ink & Fire,” written by Ashley Mansour, will be released on December 1 via Upturn Publishing. The novel is a gripping, evocative tale that asks, who would we be without books?

Alex Pettyfer’s image rehabilitation is working and has some entertainment observers predicting that it could result in him once again being considered by filmmakers as a leading man for their projects.

In 2012 after the release of the film “Magic Mike” he was considered one of the rising stars in Hollywood and a name that numerous film casting agents, directors and producers had on their ‘short’ list of potential leading men.

Unfortunately for him rumours and articles started emerging of the difficulties he had with writer/director/star Channing Tatum on the set of “Magic Mike” and the unwillingness of the director to bring him back for the sequel even though the film was a huge box office success.

The public disclosure of the philosophical differences he had on the set of “Magic Mike” resulted in his work opportunities diminishing.

In 2011 he was seen in three movies and after the success of “Magic Mike” in 2012 many entertainment observers thought he would be receiving many more Hollywood projects. However, that has not been the situation for him as since the 2012 release of “Magic Mike” he has appeared in only two movies: Lee Daniels’ “The Butler” and “Endless Love”.

Some entertainment observers believe that casting agents, producers and directors have been taking a cautious approach with the English actor and wanting to see if he would be a ‘problem’ on the set or would he be able to work as a productive member of the cast.

On his current film, “Elvis & Nixon”, a movie in which he plays one of the friends of the singing superstar and later becomes his bodyguard and so far he has proven to be professional, committed and there has been no mention of him being difficult to work with which is helping change his reputation among other filmmakers.

It seems like Alex Pettyfer has learned from his past conduct on the “Magic Mike” set as now some entertainment observers are predicting that 2015 could be the year his name is once again included in discussions about the best young leading man candidates, especially if he completes filming on “Elvis & Nixon” without there being any news of trouble on the set because of him.

The Alex Pettyfer situation is a lesson that all actors must remember: one can lose the opportunity to be a star if one proves difficult to work with and repairing one’s reputation is a very difficult and long process that if one can avoid, they should.
