Mike Newell’s Adaptation Guernsey Eyes Rosamund Pike For Lead Role

5 February 2016 12:49 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Few would argue that Rosamund Pike stole the show in David Fincher’s psychological thriller Gone Girl, portraying an unhinged sociopath that still sends shivers down our spines to this day. Imagine our disappointment, then, when the Oscar-nominated actress followed up Fincher’s opus with middling thriller Return To Sender.

No matter, because Deadline reports that Pike is circling her next potential project, and it’s one that goes by the name Guernsey. Mike Newell of Four Weddings and a Funeral fame is behind the camera, and it’s understood that Pike is currently in contention to play the role of Juliet Ashton – a role that’s attracted the likes of Kate Winslet, Lily James and Rebecca Ferguson in recent times.

Billed as an adaptation of Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows’ best-seller, Guernsey is the name of a quaint island off the British coast, with the story chronicling Ashton »

The Definitive Romantic Comedies: 40-31

9 January 2016 4:05 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Welcome back to the Definitive List, where for the inaugural top 50, we’re counting down the best romantic comedies. The majority of numbers 50 through 41 weren’t so traditional. A secret-admirer movie, a period piece, a “These two don’t make sense together” movie, and a French fantasy among them, but we still managed to squeak in a Wes Anderson movie and a surrealist masterpiece. It doesn’t get any more traditional from here, as numbers 40 through 31 jumps around just as much, from sub-genre to sub-genre. Regardless, these films have made their mark on the industry and still hold a place in the pantheon of the rom-com hall of fame.

#40. Groundhog Day (1993)

Bill Murray was nominated for an Oscar after his dramatic turn in Sofia Coppola’s Lost in Translation. He has shown great promise in Wes Anderson’s films. But his best performance to date came in this Harold Ramis »
