Daldry talks 'Trash' in Motovun

28 July 2014 4:35 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Stephen Daldry also talks about his new Netflix-backed series, his first foray into episodic TV.

Stephen Daldry admits his new film Trash is likely to ruffle feathers because of “talking about poverty and corruption in Brazil.”

Daldry, speaking at the Motovun Film Festival in Croatia this weekend, said: “The reason I made this film is because it’s about the underbelly, the difficult side of Rio, the underexposed side of Rio.”

Trash, which is slate for its world premiere at the Rio Film Festival in October, is now in the final stages of post production for Peapie Films, Working Title and Universal. It follows the story of impoverished kids who scavenge on a trash heap in Rio who get embroiled in a political scandal when they find an important item in the trash.

Daldrey spent three years on and off in Rio. “It’s a country I feel in love with, they believe »

Rooney Mara Replaces Jessica Chastain In The Secret Scripture

23 July 2014 10:42 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After breaking out in David Fincher’s The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo with her Oscar-nominated turn as hacker Lisbeth Salander, Rooney Mara has steadily cemented her reputation as one of the most talented young actresses working today with strong performances in Ain’t Them No Bodies Saints, Side Effects and Her. And she doesn’t look to be slowing down anytime soon, with Stephen Daldry’s Trash, an untitled Terrence Malick project and erotic thriller Carol in the can. Now, we’ve learned that Mara has booked another high-profile gig leading the Jim Sheridan-directed The Secret Scripture.

Mara will replace Jessica Chastain in the drama, “about a 100-year-old woman named Roseanne who recounts her life in mental institutions in a secret memoir.” She will be playing the younger version of Roseanne, “who survives a traumatic childhood only to see her life utterly changed by a vindictive Catholic priest. »

Check Out The First Trailer For Stephen Daldry’s Trash

22 July 2014 8:15 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

We’ve heard very, very little about the latest film from Oscar favorite Stephen Daldry, who previously directed Billy ElliotThe HoursThe Reader and Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close (every film the director has been involved with has either been nominated for Best Director or Best Picture), but today brings the arrival of the first trailer for Trash, certainly a grittier and more unconventional venture from the helmer.

The movie, based on the book by Andy Mulligan, and scripted by About Time screenwriter Richard Curtis, tells the story of three street kids who survive by rummaging through a huge trash fill on the outskirts of a major city, searching through human waste and filth in hopes of finding food and other items necessary for their survival. One day, one of them finds a small leather bag with a wallet with some money and an ID card, a folded-up map, »

Spit-Balling What the 2014 Toronto Film Festival Lineup Could Look Like

21 July 2014 4:12 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Tomorrow morning, July 22, at approximately 7 Am Pst the first wave of 2014 Toronto Film Festival titles will be announced and I'm having a hard time trying to figure out just what exactly to expect. First of all, we already know David Fincher's Gone Girl is premiering at the New York Film Festival as is Paul Thomas Anderson's Inherent Vice. So scratch those two off the board. Then there's Birdman, which will open the Venice Film Festival and close New York and expectation is it will also show up in Telluride, which takes place just before Toronto... will Fox Searchlight go for all threec Or better yet, will they go for the new rules laid down by Toronto Film Festival artistic director Cameron Baileyc In recent years the Toronto Film Festival has seen films such as Best Picture winners Slumdog Millionaire, Argo and 12 Years a Slave getting "sneak" previews at »

Rooney Mara Caught Up in a Conspiracy in First Trailer for ‘Trash’ (Video)

21 July 2014 3:33 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Three boys gets more than they bargained for when they come across a mysterious wallet in the first trailer for Stephen Daldry‘s “Trash,” which also stars Rooney Mara and Martin Sheen. Rato (Gabriel Weinstein), Gardo (Eduardo Luis) and Raphael (Rickson Tevez) are three young boys living in an unnamed third world country who scour their city's massive garbage dumps for anything salvageable that would allow them to survive another day. Going through a discarded wallet looking for money, they find some mysterious documents instead. The wallet was flung into a dump by a man (Wagner Moura) fleeing from cops, »

Watch the First Trailer for 'Trash' Starring Rooney Mara

21 July 2014 3:20 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I have been pruning my 2015 Oscar predictions lately and I almost removed Stephen Daldry's Trash from my Best Picture predictions... good thing I didn't as the first trailer for the film has been released suggesting we're likely to hear it announced as part of one of the upcoming fall film festivals if not several. Given this version comes from Universal Brazil (where the film actually opens in October) it doesn't exactly give us an idea of where it might show up though as part of tomorrow's announcement of the first wave of Toronto Film Festival features would be a good guess. The film, which stars Rooney Mara,follows three boys in a third world country who scrape a living by picking through trash.

Watch: First Trailer For Stephen Daldry's 'Trash' Starring Rooney Mara

21 July 2014 3:06 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Here's the deal: if you see a trailer this week for a prestige, awards contender-seeming movie, the chances are you'll likely see it somewhere on the fall festival slate. And so, even though we weren't quite sure where Stephen Daldry's "Trash" would fit on the calendar, it's done, in the can, a trailer is here, and now you can see if the Oscar race is being shaken up. Based on the book by Andy Mulligan, with a script from Richard Curtis ("Love Actually," "About Time") and starring Rooney Mara, Martin Sheen and Wagner Moura along with newcomers Rickson Tevez, Eduardo Luis and Gabriel Weinstein, the story concerns three street kids who survive by picking through a mostly human waste-filled garbage dump on the outskirts of a large city.

First Trailer For Stephen Daldry’s ‘Trash’ Starring Rooney Mara, Martin Sheen, and Wagner Moura

21 July 2014 2:39 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

After a string of “prestige” (i.e. Oscar bait) features, director Stephen Daldry looks to be going off the beaten path a bit with his latest drama, Trash. Based on the novel of the same name by Andy Mulligan and scripted by Love Actually’s Richard Curtis, he shot fairly under-the-radar, on location in Brazil. Ahead of an international release this fall, the […] »

’90s Redux: Bill Nighy May Be Broadway-Bound In Hare’s ‘Skylight’; `Master Class’ Helmer Mike Nichols Talks Shop for HBO

11 July 2014 8:08 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

The Union Jack will be flying over Broadway big-time this coming season, as talk heats up about bringing Bill Nighy, Carey Mulligan and the acclaimed National Theatre revival of David Hare’s Skylight to New York in the spring. I wrote a few weeks ago that while the Stephen Daldry production will be telecast in the fall by Nt Live, far better would be the chance to see Hare’s extraordinarily moving play — about the expired romance between an older, self-made businessman and an idealistic young teacher, roles created by Michael Gambon and Lia Williams — on Broadway.

Ukrainian Director Oleg Sentsov Denied Bail by Russian Court

9 July 2014 7:02 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Despite calls for his release by Pedro Almodovar, Ken Loach and Mike Leigh,  imprisoned Ukrainian filmmaker Oleg Sentsov (“Gamer”) has been denied bail at a Russian court hearing. He will now remain in prison until his trial Oct. 11.

Sentsov was arrested by Russian Fsb security forces in his house in Simferopol in the Crimea on May 11 and taken to Moscow. On May 30, the Fsb announced that Sentsov – who had actively opposed Russia’s annexation of Crimea, delivering food supplies to Ukrainian army troops trapped in their barracks – would be charged with planning to bomb two World War II monuments and setting fire to other buildings.

Sentsov made a speech in court from behind iron bars this week. (http://tvrain.ru/articles/ja_ne_krepostnoj_chtoby_s_zemlej_menja_peredavat_rech_ukrainskogo_rezhissera_olega_sentsova_v_sude-371693/)

Theatre Review: David Hare’s ‘Skylight’

8 July 2014 4:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Stephen Daldry

Starring: Carey Mulligan, Bill Nighy, Matthew Beard

Synopsis: On a cold London evening, teacher Kyra Hollis receives an unexpected visit from her former lover, Tom Sergeant, a successful restaurateur whose wife has recently died. As the evening progresses, the two attempt to rekindle their relationship only to find themselves stuck in a battle of opposing ideologies and mutual desires. 

Among the tourists and unremitting chaos of Leicester Square lies Wyndham’s Theatre and David Hare’s tremendous understated, absorbing Skylight starring Carey Mulligan, Bill Nighy and Matthew Beard.

This revival of the play sees Nighy return to the role of Tom Sergeant, the part he took over from Michael Gambon in its original 1996 National Theatre run. What makes this new production even more special is Carey Mulligan in her West End debut as Kyra Hollis. That’s not the end of the top talent either as Stephen Daldry directs, »

Off the Carpet: It's half-time in the 2014-2015 Oscar race

30 June 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

We've officially reached the half-way mark of 2014. This time a year ago the only Oscar players on the table were Sundance debut "Before Midnight" and Cannes debuts "Nebraska" and "Inside Llewyn Davis," give or take a "Croods," "Great Gatsby," "Lone Ranger" or an "Iron Man 3" that would pick up support outside of the major categories. So what does the year have to show for itself so far this time around? Sundance feels like it might have an off year this season, though screenplay hopes and more abound for films like "Boyhood" and "Dear White People." "Whiplash" could find a stride depending on how Sony Pictures Classics' slate shakes out for them, but as ever, the year's first big splash for new films will make more of an impression in the documentary feature category than anywhere else. Not long after things wrapped up in Park City, Warner Bros. released »

Rooney Mara turns producer-star for 'A House in the Sky'

25 June 2014 3:09 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Rooney Mara has been playing things pretty cool since picking up a Best Actress Oscar nomination two years ago for "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo." The franchise initially beckoned by David Fincher's Scandi-thriller remake hasn't come to pass, which has left Mara room to be discerning: she had classy leading roles last year in David Lowery's "Ain't Them Bodies Saints" and Steven Soderbergh's "Side Effects," though neither one was built entirely around her; a tart supporting role in Spike Jonze's Best Picture nominee "Her" further added to her credibility. Mara's upcoming slate is pretty high-end, too, with Todd Haynes' "Carol," Stephen Daldry's "Trash" and Joe Wright's "Pan" all at various stages of production, while she'll appear (or not -- who knows?) in one of Terrence Malick's upcoming endeavors. Still, even with all these offers coming along, it never hurts to start developing your own projects. »

Rooney Mara To Star In Memoir Adaptation A House In The Sky

25 June 2014 11:50 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Ever since her transformative performance in David Fincher’s amazing The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo adaptation, Rooney Mara has been highly in-demand. She’s had her pick of projects over the past few years, appearing in such great films as David Lowery’s Ain’t Them Bodies Saints, Steven Soderbergh’s Side Effects and Spike Jonze’s Her. Mara’s upcoming schedule looks equally promising – she’s got Stephen Daldry’s Trash, a Terrence Malick film, Todd Haynes’ romantic drama Carol and Joe Wright’s blockbuster Pan on the way. Now, the actress has joined another exciting project – Annapurna Pictures’ memoir adaptation A House in the Sky.

Mara will star in and produce the adaptation, based on Amanda Linhout’s account of the ordeal she underwent after being abducted by a rebel terrorist group whilst exploring Somalia in 2008. Amazon’s synopsis for the book reads as follows:

Updated 2014 Best Picture Oscar Predictions: Ava Duvernay's 'Selma' Enters the Race

20 June 2014 12:21 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Paramount has just thrown an interesting little wrench in the Oscar works and added yet another title to the Christmas Day release slate by announcing Ava Duvernay's Selma -- the story of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s historic struggle to secure voting rights for all people -- will have a limited release in the U.S. on Christmas day and will open wide on January 9, 2015. Considering I haven't updated my Best Picture Oscar predictions since May 5, it makes sense now is as good a time as any to shuffle the ranks. Of course, one of the most difficult thing about predicting so early are the number of films I haven't seen, those that have been seen (but I haven't seen) and those I have seen and then doing my best to sort through my personal bias and trying to come to some conclusion as to how I think the Academy will vote. »
