"It's like it was written for her, but it wasn't. Scheduling her is really stressful scheduling though!"
It will be the first time that Jagger has produced a film, while Delevingne has taken on several acting roles in the past few years.
We’ve been through many cycles of cinematic history now, reached many milestones and have given birth to many cliche’s as well, but as time draws forth, where does film take hold to ensure a continued future of innovation? Certainly, technology does, and will always have its part in the creative endeavor of filmmaking, but when it comes to story, are we beginning to see the long, slow death of originality? On some levels, I fear this may be a temporary reality, but much like life and energy itself, never truly dies and will always find a way.
It will come as no surprise that many a studio film is churned out in formulaic fear of stirring the pot, rousing the dormant interest of adventurous viewers, but we still have our independence. Indie filmmakers, the experimenters, the explorers, the balls-to-the-wall, no excuses, just make it happen and make it yours pioneers. »

Sixteen years after she starred in her first Whit Stillman period piece, Kate Beckinsale is making another one — she just signed on to star in the director's characteristically long-gestating Love & Friendship, an adaptation of Jane Austen's novella Lady Susan. (The movie's title comes from another Austen novella, confusing bookstore owners everywhere.) Beckinsale's replacing Sienna Miller as the formerly titular Lady Susan, a beautiful widow in 1790s England trying to land husbands for both herself and her daughter. Chloë Sevigny is playing her friend, which means that this movie is officially a Last Days of Disco reunion, only set in a place where the sexual mores are just slightly more constrained. »

What happened to Whit Stillman’s promising Amazon show “The Cosmopolitans” starring Chloe Sevigny about American expats living in Paris?

On Thursday (January 29), Pivot premieres the intriguing new Arctic Circle mystery "Fortitude." Now you have the better part of the day to figure out where Pivot is hiding on your TV dial. "Fortitude" is set in a chilly and alien world in which both the characters and the ice hide secrets. Featuring a strong cast led by Richard Dormer, Stanley Tucci, Michael Gambon, Christopher Eccleston, Jessica Raine and Sienna Guillory, "Fortitude" was created by scribe Simon Donald, whose credits include the original incarnation of "Low Winter Sun." At TCA Press Tour earlier this month, Donald and I sat down over a couple pints and discussed "Fortitude," starting with its brutal opening scene. We talked about the decision not to have Tucci do a Scottish accent, the drama's environmental message and the hints at horror or supernatural elements. It's a good conversation about a good show. Check out the Q&A. »
