Universal’s Mary Magdalene Biopic Eyes Rooney Mara

2 February 2016 9:12 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Fresh off wooing Cate Blanchett in Todd Haynes’ critically-acclaimed Oscar hopeful Carol, Rooney Mara has emerged as an early frontrunner to land the title role in Universal’s Mary Magdalene biopic, Deadline has learned.

Partnering with See-Saw Films, the studio has already instated Garth Davis in the director’s chair, and it looks as though Mara is on the verge of coming aboard. Negotiations are currently underway, so it’s worth keeping in mind that the casting is yet to be finalized, but that hasn’t quelled Davis’ excitement about the potential of Mara portraying “one of history’s most misunderstood woman.”

“Rooney’s raw, brave approach to performances, coupled with her deeply magnetic inner life, holds all the dimensions needed to bring to life one of history’s most misunderstood woman — Mary Magdalene,” said Davis. “Having worked with Rooney on Lion, I know she is a once in a lifetime talent. »

Our Daily Bread #9

25 January 2016 4:36 AM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Philippe Garrel’s In The Shadow of Women is his Jacques Rivette film: a work of masks, intrigues, labyrinthine deceptions and power games...but applied to the most intimate of relationships. So too is it thus a 69 minute long miracle of economy: We will see the meanings of these frames later. As Garrel says in his press conference: "For me, In The Shadow of Women is a film about the equality of men and women in as far as cinema can achieve this."And insofar as it is a meditation on equality between men and women, it too is also in dialogue with cinema itself.“...a history of cinema as communication between man and woman.” – Garrel, New York 2015 A good alternate title would be: Now, how do we get from point A to point B? “I also use images from my dreams. I am looking for a form of oneirism »

James Bond 007: revisiting Spectre

24 January 2016 6:14 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »




We complete our series looking back at the James Bond movies, with a detailed look at Spectre, starring Daniel Craig...

This article contains big spoilers for Spectre and Star Trek Into Darkness.

Daniel Craig’s fourth or Roger Moore’s eighth? The former of course but you get the point. The almost-realistic stylings of early Craig have given way to the full blown pantomime excess of mid-Moore (or late Connery, in fairness). Desert lairs, endless car chases, free-wheelin’ helicopters and indestructible airplanes are all very much back in vogue. The result is a largely enjoyable, extremely silly film which attempts to tie previous Craig outings together at the expense of consistency and logic. There isn’t a plot: more a succession of scenes stitched together. And it still can’t manage a decent finale! Fun but ultimately frivolous. Now who does that remind me of?

Mary Magdalene Film Sets Up Shop At Universal, The King’s Speech Producers Attached

21 January 2016 1:37 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Universal has ordered a live-action Mary Magdalene movie for a release in 2017 in partnership with See-Saw Films. Currently without an official title, the religious drama will be helmed by Garth Davis working from a script penned by Helen Edmundson and Philippa Goslett.

Often referred to as Mary of Magdala or simply The Magdalene across the four Christian gospels, Mary Magdalene has been portrayed by Barbara Hershey and, more recently, by Spectre star Monica Bellucci in Mel Gibson’s The Passion of the Christ. However, news of Universal and See-Saw’s biblical drama taking shape is the first sign that the celebrated and somewhat controversial figure will headline her own film.

No word yet on which actress will take on the title role, but we do know that Iain Canning and Emile Sherman are on board to produce, while Universal brass Robert Walak and Peter Kujawski offered a statement to Deadline in light of the announcement. »

Universal, See-Saw Plan Mary Magdalene Biopic

21 January 2016 7:28 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Universal Pictures International Productions and See-Saw Films are teaming up for a currently untitled biopic of Mary Magdalene. The aim is to deliver a humanistic portrait of the enigmatic and misunderstood devoted follower of Jesus Christ who is believed to have witnessed both his crucifixion and resurrection.

Mary Magdalene developed a reputation as being a repentant prostitute during the Middle Ages, despite none of the Gospels supporting that claim. The likes of Barbara Hershey, Anne Bancroft and Monica Bellucci have played the role on film and TV productions.

Garth Davis ("Top of the Lake," "Lion") will direct the new movie from a script by Helen Edmundson & Philippa Goslett, while "The King's Speech" duo of Iain Canning and Emile Sherman will produce. Shooting kicks off this summer ahead of a 2017 release.

His long gestating latest is based on his short film Our Life and “unfolds as a three-part narrative recounting three periods in the life of a man (Kusturica): his time as a lucky milkman during the war, perilous escapades and blossoming romance with the woman he loves (Bellucci), and his later life as a monk, looking back over the tumultuous past – both his and his country’s.”

Cast: Emir Kusturica, Monica Bellucci

Production Co./Producers: Ag Studios’Alex Garcia, Bn FilmsLucas Akoskin, Pinball London’s Paula Vaccaro, Rasta Intl’s Emir Kusturica.
