Sigourney Weaver to Play Your Disappointed Grandma in ‘A Monster Calls’

20 August 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

If you’re going to have someone on your side to protect you from bad guys and guide you through life’s trials and tribulations, there is probably nobody better than Sigourney Weaver to get the job done. But although she’s one of the most badass action stars in film history, she’s leaving the niceties to Liam Neeson this time around. Weaver has signed on to the cast of the children’s fantasy flick A Monster Calls, an adaptation of the brilliant 2011 novel from Patrick Ness that will be directed by Juan Antonio Bayona (The Impossible) and feature Neeson as the title creature. The actress is taking on something a little more frosty in the film, playing grandmother to 13-year-old protagonist Conor, whose life is especially complicated with a double whammy of brutal bullying from classmates at school and his mother’s (Felicity Jones) prognosis of terminal cancer.

Sigourney Weaver Joins Liam Neeson in A Monster Calls

20 August 2014 12:30 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Sigourney Weaver has joined Liam Neeson and Felicity Jones in a fantasy film called A Monster Calls, which is based on Patrick Ness’ award-winning children's novel. 

The film is being directed by Juan Antonio Bayona (The Impossible), and the story follows "a young boy who attempts to deal with bullying at the hands of his classmates, and his mother's terminal illness, by escaping into a fantastical world through the guidance of a tree monster."

Weaver will play the boy’s grandmother, Jones is playing the boys mother, and Neeson is playing the monster. I really like the concept of the story, and the cast they've brought together to bring it to life so far is fantastic. The movie is set to be released in October 2016.

Pierce Brosnan Thriller ‘November Man’ Has a Sequel in Development

20 August 2014 8:05 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Liam Neeson will be back on the big screen as Bryan Mills in Taken 3 next January, Arnold Schwarzenegger has Terminator: Genisys coming out in Summer 2015, and Sylvester Stallone is training in anticipation of Rambo 5 being his next movie. That is to say, being part of the 60 and Over Club is far from a problem for established action stars nowadays. Heck, Denzel Washington joins that club this December and yet his upcoming vehicle The Equalizer could give the Oscar-winner his first action franchise.

So really, it doesn’t come as a shock that Pierce Brosnan – who hung up his 007 hat twelve years ago with Die Another Day – is jumping back into the ...

'A Monster Calls' Toby Kebbell & Sigourney Weaver to Fantasy Cast

20 August 2014 7:20 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Earlier this year, Liam Neeson and Felicity Jones joined the cast of A Monster Calls, an adaptation of the children's fantasy novel by Patrick Ness from director Juan Antonio Bayona. Now THR pegs two more cast members with Sigourney Weaver and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes star Toby Kebbell joining the story about a young boy dealing with his mother's debilitating illness and the bullying of his classmates by escaping into a fantastical world of monsters and fairy tales. Neeson is playing the titular monsters who befriends the boy and tells him stories, but the two new cast members will be playing human characters. Weaver will be playing the young boy's no-nonsense grandmother while Kebbell will play his father, who has a history of not being there for the boy. And now we know that Jones will be playing the boy's mother. This sounds like a great fantasy with a strong emotional core, »

Toby Kebbell Boards A Monster Calls

20 August 2014 6:45 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

You may not know Toby Kebbell, but the actor’s star has been rising steadily over the past ten years. This past summer, he took on the mo-cap role of antagonist Koba in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes – but prior to that, the British thesp had earned raves for his parts in Dead Man’s Shoes, Control and RocknRolla. And rest assured, if you currently can’t picture his face, just wait. He’ll play Doctor Doom in Josh Trank’s anticipated Fantastic Four reboot, and now we’ve learned that Kebbell is also climbing on board the dark fantasy A Monster Calls.

Juan Antonio Bayona (The Impossible) is directing the adaptation of Patrick Ness’ award-winning children’s book, which was in turn based on an original idea by the late Siobhan Dowd. Bayona, whose past credits also include bone-chilling ghost story The Orphanage, has been putting together »
