Jennifer Jason Leigh in talks for Alex Garland’s Annihilation

11 February 2016 5:20 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ex Machina writer-director Alex Garland may soon add another lead to his upcoming sci-fi film Anihilation, Jennifer Jason Leigh, hot off a Best Supporting Actress Academy Award nomination, would join a female-centric cast made up of Natalie Portman, Gina Rodriguez and Tessa Thompson.

The film will be based upon the novel by Jeff VanderMeer and produced by Scott Rudin. The novel, the first volume in Vandermeer’s Southern Reach trilogy sci-fi series, follows a group of four women who, as part of the twelfth expedition, venture out on a dangerous mission to a contaminated land called Area X.

The group is made up of an anthropologist, a psychologist, a surveyor and a biologist (who also acts as the group’s leader and the story’s narrator). According to TheWrap, Leigh has been made an offer to co-star and is eager to join but a deal has yet to be locked down. »

Diane Ladd Blasts Studios’ ‘Greed and Corruption’ for Pushing Leading Roles as Supporting

11 February 2016 1:29 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Focus Features and the Weinstein Company were criticized this year for promoting Alicia Vikander (“The Danish Girl”) and Rooney Mara (“Carol”), respectively, in the supporting actress category when both performances were arguably leading ones. In the end, the dust-up didn’t harm the campaigns; both actresses received supporting nominations — much to the dismay of actress Diane Ladd.

At the Aarp Movies for Grownups Awards earlier this week, where the “Joy” star received the best supporting actress honor, Ladd blasted the “greed and corruption” of forcing leading players into the supporting ranks, pushing out performances like her own.

“I was really upset and chagrined by the studios’ greed and corruption,” Ladd said. “I mean Rooney Mara, she won best actress in Cannes. Three people are stars in leading roles. They are the female lead and the star. So why are they in the supporting category?”

It’s unclear which of the »

2016 Oscar Predictions: Best Supporting Actress

11 February 2016 6:16 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Read More: Indiewire Awards Season Spotlight  Almost as confusing as its male counterpart (though not quite), best supporting actress seems like a wide open race at this point. Kate Winslet was always going to be a surefire nominee for her brilliant turn in "Steve Jobs," but even with her surprise Globe win, this category is far from a done deal. As expected, Alicia Vikander and Rooney Mara landed where their studios wanted them, and both have strong critical support and rising star power the Academy may take not of, especially because Winslet is an Oscar-winning veteran with no shortage of nominations to her name. The other two nominees, Jennifer Jason Leigh ("The Hateful Eight") and Rachel McAdams ("Spotlight"), fit effortlessly into their ensemble, though Leigh's ferocious turn has many pegging her as the category's ultimate victor. For now, it's anyone's guess. Below is Anne Thompson's take on how things might »

Alex Garland's new movie adding Jennifer Jason Leigh

Ex Machina director Alex Garland may just have completed the core cast of his upcoming movie, Annihilation.

One of our favourite films of 2015? That'd be Alex Garland's directorial debut, Ex Machina. The superb movie was a rare-ish slice of intelligent science fiction, and it sounds like he's got another with his new movie, Annihilation.

It's an adaptation of the novel by Jeff VanderMeer, about four women set to Area X, an area of America that's been quarantined due to some unusual activity. They are the twelfth such expedition sent there, and it would be fair to conclude that the previous ones did not go well.

Garland is shooting the film later this year if all goes to plan, and has already signed up Tessa Thompson (Creed), Gina Rodriguez (Jane The Virgin) and Natalie Portman (Oscar winner for Black Swan, of course) to appear in three of the four lead roles. »
