‘Gone Girl': Rosamund Pike on the Role of a Lifetime

16 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Like the lead character she portrays in the widely anticipated movie version of “Gone Girl,” Rosamund Pike fell off nearly everyone’s radar.

At the tender age of 21, the British actress was cast as the sultry Miranda Frost, a sword-wielding vixen in the James Bond film “Die Another Day,” her first studio feature. She powdered on enough makeup to look a decade older, donned a black sports bra, and met an untimely demise with a knife to her heart. Onscreen, she was killed by Halle Berry. Offscreen, she suffered a far worse blow to her budding career.

The baggage of playing a Bond Girl backfired. “It cemented a sort of patrician, frigid, English, standoffish cold image,” says Pike, over breakfast in September at the Toronto Film Festival. “People think I lie about my age.

Guy Pearce And Dominic West Are Fitzgerald And Hemingway In ‘Genius’

27 September 2014 7:37 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Having Colin Firth and Jude Law starring in your movie surely fulfills a quota for requisite manliness. But for his upcoming film Genius Michael Grandage is throwing Guy Pearce and Dominic West into the mix for a true story of literary giants and their personal turmoil. Pearce is playing The Great Gatsby writer F.Scott Fitzgerald and West takes on the mantle of tough guy author Ernest Hemingway (The Old Man And The Sea).

The pair enjoyed quite a friendship, but the focus of John Logan’s script is Max Perkins (Firth), arguably the world’s most influential book editor and his relationship with Thomas Wolfe (Law). It’s adapted from 1978’s Max Perkins: Editor Of Genius by A.Scott Berg. This all sounds very blokey, but Grandage is also delivering on the actress front, casting Nicole Kidman and Laura Linney in supporting roles. Tim Bevan is executive producer.
