A Sixties-Set Christina Hendricks May Star in Sally Potter's 'Bomb'

28 December 2011 11:00 AM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Christina Hendricks plays a 1960's secretarial sex kitten on the AMC's drama Mad Men, but the curvaceous star may be delivering another kind of explosive performance in Sally Potter's coming of age tale, Bomb. The upcoming period film already sports Elle Fanning, Alice Englert, and Alessandro Nivola, with Hendricks circling a role that has yet to be fleshed out for the moviegoing public. Annette Bening is reportedly also interested in the project. Fanning and Englert will play UK teens navigating their way through the sixties' sexual revolution during the Cold War. Nivola is set to star as a writer sleeping with his young daughter's best friend. It's easy to imagine the actress à la a sexually confident Joan Holloway finding her place amongst the...

Christina Hendricks Is da 'Bomb'

28 December 2011 7:32 AM, PST | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

Christina Hendricks, most famous for her role as Joan Holloway on the hit series "Mad Men," may be taking her '60s swagger to the silver screen.

Word around Tinseltown is that the fiery siren is in talks to appear in Sally Potter's upcoming "Bomb," an anti-nuclear flick set in Hendricks' decade of choice.

The drama tells the story of two teenage rebels, played by Elle Fanning and Alice Englart, who become involved in the Ban the Bomb movement and the sexual revolution (which means you might get to see little Fanning burn her bra).

According to the Daily Mail, Alessandro Nivola (from the James Franco starrer "Howl") has also joined the cast, and there are rumblings that Annette Bening (who needs no introduction) is considering a part in the flick as well. There's no official word yet on the role Hendricks would play, but we can only hope »

Christina Hendricks In Talks For Sally Potter’s Sixties-Era Bomb

28 December 2011 4:29 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

There is no doubt that Christina Hendricks would have made a great star in the 1960s. To add proof to opinion, the Mad Men star is considering another movie set in that era.

Hendricks is in talks to take part in Sally Potter’s anti-nuclear movie, Bomb, which focuses on two teenage rebels, who become involved with the Ban the Bomb movement and the sexual revolution. If talks turn successful, Hendricks’ co-stars will include Elle Fanning and Alice Englart, as the two rebels, and Alessandro Nivola, while Annette Bening is also considering a part in the movie.

Audiences first heated up for Hendricks, and her hour-glass bombshell figure, in TV show Mad Men. Following roles in movies such as Drive and I Don’T Know How She Does It have established her as a respected actress.

Producer Christopher Sheppard and Potter plan to shoot the film in London and on »

Christina Hendricks in Talks to Join Elle Fanning in Sally Potter’s ‘Bomb’

27 December 2011 3:00 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

[1] Although Christina Hendricks has played modern or even futuristic [2] characters throughout her career, there's no question that she's best known for her portrayal of '60s office manager Joan Harris (née Holloway) on Mad Men. Perhaps that success is why she's in talks to return to the era for Sally Potter's period film Bomb, where she'll star alongside Elle Fanning, Alessandro Nivola, and Alice Englert. Annette Bening is said to be circling a role in the project as well. More details after the jump. The Daily Mail [3] broke the news of Hendricks' casting earlier this week. Potter's film centers around two teenage rebels involved with the anti-nuclear movement in 1960s London, against the backdrop of the Cold War and the sexual revolution. Fanning will star as Ginger, the brainier one of the two girls, while Englert (daughter of director Jane Campion) is signed on to play boy-crazy Rosa. Nivola »

Christina Hendricks Steps Back Into the 60s for ‘Bomb’

26 December 2011 3:42 PM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Some actors worry about keeping strict control over how the world perceives them and making sure that they don’t get typecast, but Mad Men’s Christina Hendricks seems to think that if you look that good dressed up in the garb of the period, why not follow up your head turning, 60s-set breakout performance with another role steeped in the same decade? To that end, she has accepted a role in director Sally Potter’s upcoming anti-nuke movie Bomb, which tells the tale of a couple of teenage girls who become part of the Ban the Bomb movement and also learn a little bit about free love and their own blossoming sexuality along the way.There isn’t yet any word on what role Hendricks will play in the film, but she joins a cast that already includes Elle Fanning and Alice Englert as the main girls, and is also rumored to soon pick up names »

Mad Men’s Christina Hendricks The Bomb?

Mad Men’s Christina Hendricks The Bomb?

Thanks to her role as Joan Holloway on AMC’s Mad Men, Christina Hendricks is no stranger to the 60’s and it looks like she might be showing up on the big screen in that same time period with Sally Potter’s anti-nuclear movie, Bomb.

There hasn’t been any official word so you might want to take the info from Daily Mail UK with a few grains of salt, especially since there isn’t any real info regarding the supposed casting choice. Hendricks is reportedly in talks to appear in the film but there’s no word on what role she might play. That in itself might not be a bad sign but her name sure did seem to come from way out in left field, with no previous mention of her being even remotely considered for the film.

Christina Hendricks Nabs Role in Sally Potter’s ‘Bomb’

23 December 2011 11:28 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

As we reported about a month ago, We Bought a Zoo‘s Elle Fanning and Alessandro Nivola have already signed onto star in Sally Potter‘s drama Bomb. Now, according to DailyMail, Mad Men star Christina Hendricks has joined the cast.

The film centers on the lives of two teenage rebels, played Fanning and Alice Englart, “who become involved in the Ban the Bomb movement and the sexual revolution” in the 1960s. Nivola is set to play Fanning‘s father, a charismatic writer who has an affair with her best friend, which leads to a fallout. Oscar-nominated Annette Bening has also been rumored to be joining the cast. Potter will produce alongside Christopher Sheppard, with plans to shoot next February in London and the Southeast coast.

Christina Hendricks Goes Back to the 60s for Bomb; Annette Bening in Talks

23 December 2011 7:34 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The big takeaway from Mad Men is that Christina Hendricks belongs in the 1960s.  In lieu of time travel, we can keep casting her in period dramas.  Writer/director Sally Potter (The Man Who Cried) is doing her part by casting Hendricks in Bomb, which follows two teenage rebels (Elle Fanning and Alice Englert) who "become involved in the Ban the Bomb movement and the sexual revolution."  Alessandro Nivola also stars as a freethinking writer who wrecks his relationship with his daughter (Fanning) when he has an affair with her friend.  According to the Daily Mail, Annette Bening is in talks for an unspecified role. Even before Bening joins, Potter has a nice cast.  Hendricks is terrific.  I have fond memories of Nivola in Junebug.  Fanning is perhaps the best actress in Hollywood who can't drive yet.  I haven't seen Englert in anything, but her mother is Jane Campion, and »

Elle Fanning Says 'Twixt' Like Making A "Homemade Movie" At Francis Ford Coppola's House

14 December 2011 9:18 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Since the release of Sofia Coppola's “Somewhere,” Elle Fanning has become one of Hollywood’s most in-demand young actresses, thanks to a combination of natural beauty and a wholesome and unaffected screen presence. Speaking to The Playlist during press rounds for Cameron Crowe’s “We Bought a Zoo,” she said she had a couple of high-profile collaborations in the pipeline, continuing to place her considerable talents in the care of established, acclaimed directors. “I did ‘Twixt’ with Francis Ford Coppola,” she said in an interview last Friday. “I’m not sure when that’s coming out, but we finished it, and he’s probably still tweaking it. And then I’m doing a movie called ‘Bomb’ with Sally Potter next year." “Twixt” is Coppola’s follow-up to “Tetro,” and his third self-financed project in four years. Starring Val Kilmer, Joanne »

Too bad the critical symposium in the new, Winter 2012 issue of Cineaste isn't online. Participants evidently include Gianni Amelio, Olivier Assayas, Costa-Gavras, Robert Greenwald, and Sally Potter, "among others," but until we get our hands on the print edition, we'll have to make do with what is online, which, after all, is plenty: Patrick Z McGavin on Dave Kehr's When Movies Mattered: Reviews from a Transformative Decade, Richard James Havis on Kyung Hyun Kim's Virtual Hallyu: Korean Cinema of the Global Era, Andrew Horton on New Zealand Film: An Illustrated History and Henry K Miller on Brutal Intimacy: Analyzing Contemporary French Cinema and The New Extremism in Cinema: From France to Europe. And that's just the book reviews.
