Tom Hardy to play war photographer Don McCullin

25 June 2016 5:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tom Hardy has signed on to play acclaimed war photographer Don McCullin in an upcoming adaptation of McCullin’s memoir Unreasonable Behaviour, Entertainment Weekly has revealed.

London-born photojournalist McCullin was lead photographer for The Sunday Times between 1969 and 1984, during which he covered the likes of Beatlemania, the construction of the Berlin Wall, the Vietnam War, The Falklands War and the AIDS epidemic in Africa.

Unreasonable Behaviour has been adapted by Gregory Burke (’71), while Hardy will produce the film alongside Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner of Working Title.

Hardy will next be seen in Christopher Nolan’s World War II epic Dunkirk, which is currently shooting now ahead of a release on July 19th 2017.

Brexit Fallout: ‘Game of Thrones,’ ‘Star Wars,’ and Oscar Favorites Could Face Trouble

24 June 2016 9:58 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

[Update: “Game of Thrones” producers have told Entertainment Weekly that the Brexit vote will not affect production on the HBO series.]

Brexit has already brought crashing markets and Prime Minister David Cameron’s resignation. It’s reasonable to believe that the financing and production of the biggest TV and film productions could soon follow suit. Here’s a breakdown of the major categories that could feel the impact.

Large Hollywood Productions

The Star Wars franchise is one of many blockbusters that shoots at Pinewood, a top-notch UK soundstage. “Game of Thrones” makes great use of the green field of Northern Ireland.  “Outlander” creates it’s magical universe in Scottish castles and countrysides.  All told, Hollywood sends 10%-12% of its productions — and billions of dollars — to the UK.

Hollywood is attracted to shoot in the U.K. because of tax incentives which save 25% on up to 80% of total production costs.  These rebates are now in jeopardy due to Brexit. It is possible that the British government could decide to continue these incentives on their own. »

Tom Hardy Clinches Lead Role In Working Title’s Don McCullin Biopic

22 June 2016 3:03 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

According to Deadline, The Revenant and Mad Max: Fury Road star Tom Hardy has closed a deal to headline Working Title’s Don McCullin biopic as the titular war photographer.

Lifting inspiration from McCullin’s autobiography Unreasonable Behaviour, and adapted for the screen by Gregory Burke (’71), Working Title’s real-life period drama will chronicle McCullin’s remarkable journey from the working classes of London’s stricken suburbs to becoming one of the most decorated and respected war photographers of the 20th century.

Hopping from Vietnam to Cambodia, and Biafra to Uganda, it’s a story befitting of a cinematic adaptation and though Deadline didn’t disclose details of a potential director to take the reins, we imagine it won’t be long before Working Title closes in on a filmmaker to helm the biopic.

As for McCullin’s Unreasonable Behaviour, the outlet pitches the non-fiction work as “an unflinching account »

Hollywood’s UK Community Debates Brexit: Should They Stay Or Should They Go?

21 June 2016 4:51 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Britain doesn’t have to choose between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, but our friends across the pond are nevertheless faced with a hugely significant political decision of their own. Thursday’s vote on Brexit — the colloquial name given to the United Kingdom’s upcoming vote on whether or not to remain in the European Union — is a divisive issue, of course, with the husband of slain MP Jo Cox saying that the 41-year-old politician was murdered because of her strong political beliefs. The Economist currently tracks the polls at 44 percent in favor of remaining (or “bremaining”), 43 percent hoping to leave (“brexit”) and 11 percent undecided.

21 June 2016 10:50 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Some of the U.K.’s top movie moguls, including the producers behind James Bond pics, Hollywood blockbusters and Oscar-winning films, have urged the British to vote to remain in the European Union in Thursday’s referendum. A letter released Tuesday, signed by more than 20 of the country’s most successful producers, claims that E.U. membership has “helped ensure that the U.K. has the fastest-growing creative industry sector in Europe,” generating $123 billion in 2014.

The statement, which is backed by “Kingsman: The Secret Service” filmmaker Matthew Vaughn, “Spectre’s” Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, and Working Title duo Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner, whose credits include “The Danish Girl,” “The Theory of Everything” and “Hail, Caesar!,” argues that “being in the E.U. means that our feature films, our television programs and our games can travel far more easily across borders because they are not subject to quotas »

London — Benedict Cumberbatch, Keira Knightley, Jude Law and Steve Coogan are among 290 actors, directors, writers, musicians and other leading lights of the world of entertainment, the arts and culture calling for the U.K. to remain part of the European Union in an open letter published on British news sites Friday.

Britons vote in a June 23 referendum on whether to withdraw from the E.U., and the letter is the latest effort by those against a “Brexit” to sway public opinion. Polls show the vote too close to call.
