Annie Clark, who is better known by her rock star name St. Vincent, is directing an adaptation of The Picture Of Dorian Gray, Oscar Wilde’s controversial 1890 novel for Lionsgate. The updated film will have a twist. The Picture Of Dorian Grey will be a portrait of a woman.

The Victorian era story of a hedonist who never gets old will be adapted by David Birke (Elle, the upcoming Slender Man).

Multi-instrumentalist St. Vincent started her music career as a member of the Polyphonic Spree and Sufjan Stevens's touring band before forming her own band in 2006. She released her debut album Marry Me in 2007. She collaborated with David Byrne for the 2012 album Love This Giant.  Her eponymous album won the Grammy for Best Alternative Album in 2015.

HFPA at 75: Meet the Foreign Press

2 August 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As the voters behind the annual Golden Globes, members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. exert an enormous influence on award season. But who are they? Variety asked five HFPA members to discuss their home territories, and lives on the circuit.

Tina Jøhnk Christensen

(Denmark, member since 2013)

Biggest surprise hit in home territory

The French film “The Intouchables” and the German film “Toni Erdmann” were huge successes in Denmark — both surprisingly so. Also, recently, “Get Out” became a surprising hit in Denmark.

Biggest Hollywood star

The Danes watch a lot of Hollywood films and the biggest Hollywood stars are Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Meryl Streep and Jennifer Lawrence, as well as Scarlett Johansson and Viggo Mortensen, who have Danish heritage. But Danes are probably even more interested in Danish stars. Denmark is a very small nation of around five million people, so when Mads Mikkelsen, Ulrich Thomsen, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Connie Nielsen and Sidse Babett-Knudsen make it internationally »

Disney’s D23 Expo in Anaheim once again demonstrated its unrivaled franchise power through Marvel, Lucasfilm, Disney and Pixar, as well as the unique mining of its animated legacy. And, in highlighting its social relevance, the emphasis was on diversity and unity in conquering prejudice and hate.

On Friday, the Expo was ecstatic over the hilarious clip of Vanellope (Sarah Silverman) getting snarky with all of the Disney princesses in “Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2” (November 21, 2018) — the ultimate Mouse House strut. It was also refreshing to learn that Holly Hunter’s mom, Helen/Elastagirl, will be the star of Brad Bird’s “Incredibles 2” (June 15, 2018), picks up where the last one left off in 2004, with the Underminer (John Ratzenberger) wreaking havoc.

However, on Saturday, Disney wowed them with clips and behind-the-scene footage from “Mary Poppins Returns,” “A Wrinkle in Time,” Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” “Avengers: Infinity War,” and “The Lion King. »
