Mary Poppins Returns director reveals why Julie Andrews isn’t making a cameo appearance

10 June 2017 2:52 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Although it was reported back in August of last year that Julie Andrews was in talks to join Disney’s Mary Poppins sequel, the Oscar-winning actress opted against a cameo in 2018’s Mary Poppins Returns, with director Rob Marshall revealing to EW that Andrews was concerned that by making an appearance she could take the spotlight away from her successor Emily Blunt.

“[Julie] had known it was in the works, then we said, ‘We’re doing it,’ and she said, ‘Oh, thank God,’” said Marshall. “Then we said, ‘And we’re thinking of Emily Blunt,’ and she just threw her hands up in the air and said yes. I think a lot of people feel that way about Emily’s work. Julie will always be, for me and for everybody, the most astonishing performance as Mary Poppins, winning the Oscar and bursting onto the scene so brilliantly. But Emily is the »

Due to Disney’s current mood for embracing the past, the House of Mouse will soon give us a (very) belated sequel to the 1964 beloved classic Mary Poppins. Titled Mary Poppins Returns, it’ll feature Emily Blunt taking over from Julie Andrews as the practically perfect magical nanny. In place of her cockney chimney sweep pal Bert (Dick Van Dyke) is Jack, a street lamp-lighter played by Hamilton star Lin-Manuel Miranda.

While speaking with Entertainment Weekly in a recent interview, Miranda revealed that Jack isn’t just inspired by the character of Bert, but has a connection to him within the storyline of the film. That’s because Jack was an apprentice chimney sweep to Bert when he was a boy. Miranda went on to explain that he’ll also share Bert’s love of »

Julie Andrews Won't Return in Mary Poppins 2

9 June 2017 10:54 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier this week, Entertainment Weekly revealed new photos from the highly-anticipated Mary Poppins sequel entitled Mary Poppins Returns. That report also confirmed a rumor that original Mary Poppins star Dick Van Dyke will make a cameo appearance, but not as his original character Bert. However, that report didn't mention anything about the original Mary Poppins herself, Julie Andrews, returning to put in an appearance. But director Rob Marshall has now confirmed that Julie Andrews won't appear in Mary Poppins 2, although she does fully support the project.

Director Rob Marshall was best known for his work as a director and choreographer on Broadway before making his feature directorial debut with the Best Picture-winning musical Chicago. In 1995, he had actually choreographed Julie Andrews in the Broadway play Victor/Victoria, and had remained close friends with the actress ever since. Entertainment Weekly reports that the director and producer John DeLuca approached Julie Andrews »

How do you make a sequel to a beloved film musical that’s over 50 years old, and have it appeal to both fans of the original, and new audiences? By infusing it with the spirit of the source material, and tying it closely to the plot, of course. That seems to be the idea for Mary Poppins Returns, anyway, as the principle cast members have now confirmed.

Stars Emily Blunt, Emily Mortimer and Ben Whishaw have been speaking to Entertainment Weekly about their characters and the scenarios that they find themselves in. Specifically, it seems that Whishaw’s Michael is integral to the action of the story, as he tries to function after unexpectedly becoming a widower.

“He’s struggling to cope with looking after three children on his own, so he’s trying to »

New Images From Mary Poppins Returns

7 June 2017 12:07 PM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Everyone’s favourite magical childminder (no, not Nanny McPhee) is on her way back to the big screen, and Entertainment Weekly have released shed load of new images from Rob Marhsall’s (Chicago) Mary Poppins Returns, featuring Emily Blunt looking quite the part in the lead role, Hamilton’s Lin-Manuel Miranda subbing for Dick Van Dyke as Jack the Lamplighter (former apprentice to Van Dyke’s Bert from the original), and Ben Whishaw and Emily Mortimer as the grown-up Michael and Jane Banks. You may even spy Meryl Streep as Mary’s cousin Topsy in a sneaky behind the scenes shot. The effects may be modern and the setting is now the stylish 1930’s, but everything about this particular project feels so close to the original, it’s kinda scary. Blunt even went as far as gaining the blessing of the original Ms. Poppins, Julie Andrews, before cameras started rolling. »

Mary Poppins Returns! Or rather, she will on December 25th, 2018, but Entertainment Weekly has returned from Cherry Tree Lane today bearing gifts – specifically, a slew of new photos for Disney and Rob Marshall’s magical follow-up.

It’s a sequel that’s been on the cards for a generation, and it’s really a testimony to the enduring legacy of P.L. Travers’ eight-book series that even now, more than 50 years after she first floated via umbrella onto the big screen, that Mary Poppins is still one of, if not the most renown nannies in cinema. Edge of Tomorrow actress Emily Blunt closed a deal to play Poppins more than a year ago after receiving the blessing of Julie Andrews, and up above you’ll see Blunt kitted out in period garb and floating over the cobbled streets of London. »

26 May 2017 8:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Female filmmakers are still an unfortunate rarity in Hollywood — USC Annenberg’s Media, Diversity & Social Change Initiative’s latest study about female directors in the industry recently delivered blunt findings like “the director’s chair is white and male” and “age restricts opportunities for female filmmakers” and even “one & done: opportunities for female directors are rare” — but that hasn’t stopped a compelling legion of creators to churn out excellent films for as long as the art form has existed.

The 21st century may be less than seventeen years old, but it’s already played home to a slew of instant classics, from established auteurs to rising indie stars and everything in between. Here are the 25 best.

Kristin Scott Thomas to Play BMW Heiress in Alexandra-Therese Keining’s “Paramour”

15 May 2017 12:31 PM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Kristin Scott Thomas in “I’ve Loved You So Long”: Columbia/TriStar

Kristin Scott Thomas has signed on to star in “Paramour,” a thriller about a doomed romance. Swedish helmer Alexandra-Therese Keining will direct the film, Deadline reports.

Inspired by the true story of BMW heiress Susanne Klatten (Scott Thomas), “Paramour” follows the “powerful woman who chooses to lead a reclusive existence away from the limelight. When the mysterious and seductive Helg Sgarbi enters her life, they embark upon a passionate, illicit affair — but once she is well and truly hooked, Helg reveals his sinister true intentions,” the source summarizes.

Jordan Katz (“Valiant”) penned the script. Meredith Vieira ProductionsAmy Rapp (“Tower”) is producing alongside Occupant Entertainment’s Joe Neurauter (“The Hallow”). Vieira will serve as exec producer. Sales for the project, scheduled to shoot in Germany and Italy this fall, will launch next week in Cannes.

“‘Paramour’ is a thrilling and provocative story about the dangers and responsibilities that one uber-wealthy woman is forced to confront,” said Protagonist CEO Mike Goodridge. “Jordan Katz’s script intelligently captures the intriguing dilemmas facing these two highly flawed characters. The combination of exciting filmmaker Alexandra-Therese Keining and the always compelling star Kristin Scott Thomas make for a heady cocktail which will appeal to adult audiences around the world.”

Keining’s most recent film, supernatural coming-of-age story “Girls Lost,” made its world premiere at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival. When we asked her about the biggest misconception about her and her work, she said, “That as a female director, I am only able to do rom-coms.” Keining is currently in pre-production on AnnaSophia Robb-starrer “Just Like Beauty,” a dramedy set in a dystopic future.

Scott Thomas will make her directorial debut with “The Sea Change,” a drama about an unhappy married couple who travel to a remote Greek island. She earned an Academy Award nomination in 1997 for her role in “The English Patient.” Her recent credits include “Suite Française,” “The Invisible Woman,” and “Only God Forgives.” She’ll next be seen in Sally Potter’s “The Party,” which just secured U.S. distribution. Scheduled to hit theaters in February, the black and white dark comedy co-stars Emily Mortimer (“The Newsroom”), Patricia Clarkson (“The Maze Runner” franchise), Cillian Murphy (“Inception”), Cherry Jones (“Transparent”), Timothy Spall (“Harry Potter” franchise), and Bruno Ganz (“The Reader”).

Sally Potter’s “The Party” Gets U.S. Distribution

12 May 2017 12:01 PM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

The Party

Three months after making its world premiere at the Berlinale, “The Party” has found a U.S. home. Writer-director Sally Potter’s latest feature has been acquired by Roadside Attractions, The Hollywood Reporter writes. Patricia Clarkson toplines the dark comedy.

Set in contemporary London, the black and white film centers on a celebration that goes horribly awry. “The Party” was shot in just 14 days and features a star-studded cast including Emily Mortimer (“Doll & Em”), Cherry Jones (“Transparent”), Kristin Scott Thomas (“The English Patient”), Cillian Murphy (“The Dark Knight Rises”), Bruno Ganz (“Downfall”), and Timothy Spall (“Denial”).

Sally Potter’s ‘The Party’ may be one of the most witty, outrageous, biting, and entertaining movies that we have ever acquired,” said Roadside Attractions co-founders Howard Cohen and Eric d’Arbeloff. “It has an outstanding cast who take enormous pleasure sparring on screen, physically and verbally. We loved the film from start to bloody finish.”

The film was very warmly received at the Berlinale, and currently boasts a 100 percent “Fresh” rating at Rotten Tomatoes. “The Party” secured UK distribution earlier this month.

Potter is perhaps best known for her Oscar-nominated 1992 adaptation of Virginia Woolf’s “Orlando,” starring Tilda Swinton. She most recently directed the Elle Fanning-starrer “Ginger & Rosa,” a 2012 coming-of-age drama set during the Cuban Missile Crisis. Potter’s other credits include “The Tango Lesson,” “Yes,” and “The Man Who Cried.”

The former choreographer left school when she was 16 years old. “I’d made my first 8mm film at 14 and I absolutely, passionately wanted to be a film director. So I left school and struck out,” she has explained. “I got jobs in restaurants, washing carrots, and joined the London Filmmaker’s Co-op, making tiny, tiny films that just got bigger. Looking back, I think ‘Jesus, living alone, wanting to be a film director’… When I meet 16-year-olds, they’re so young, the little darlings.”

Unfortunately we’re going to have to wait a while to watch “The Party.” Roadside Attractions is planning a North American release for February 2018.

Sally Potter’s “The Party” Gets UK Distribution

2 May 2017 9:01 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

The Party

Sally Potter’s latest film has secured distribution in the UK. ScreenDaily reports that “The Party” has been acquired by Picturehouse Entertainment, with a planned fall release. The star-studded dark comedy made its world premiere in competition at the Berlinale back in February.

Set in contemporary London, the black and white film centers on a celebration that goes horribly awry. “The Party” was shot in just 14 days. Its cast includes Patricia Clarkson (“Learning to Drive”), Emily Mortimer (“Doll & Em”), Cherry Jones (“Transparent”), Kristin Scott Thomas (“The English Patient”), Cillian Murphy (“The Dark Knight Rises”), Bruno Ganz (“Downfall”), and Timothy Spall (“Denial”).

The pic was produced by Potter’s production company with Christopher Sheppard, Adventure Pictures. Kurban Kassam (“20,000 Days on Earth”) also served as producer.

“I am thrilled to be working with Sally Potter on her wonderful new film. Over a long career, Sally has consistently led the charge in UK independent filmmaking, bringing us a body of films that are at once sharp, fun, and surprising,” commented Clare Binns, director of programming and acquisition at Picturehouse.

Potter is perhaps best known for her 1992 adaptation of Virginia Woolf’s “Orlando,” starring Tilda Swinton. The film received two Oscar nominations. She most recently directed “Ginger & Rosa,” a 2012 coming-of-age drama set during the Cuban Missile Crisis. The film centers on the intense friendship between two teen girls, played by Elle Fanning (“Maleficent”) and Alice Englert (“Beautiful Creatures”). Potter’s other notable films include the BAFTA-nominated “The Tango Lesson,” “Yes” with Joan Allen, “The Man Who Cried,” starring Christina Ricci and Cate Blanchett, and “Rage” with Judi Dench.

We’re still waiting for “The Party” to get picked up in the U.S. The film was very warmly received at the Berlinale, and currently boasts a 100 percent “Fresh” rating at Rotten Tomatoes. With a cast this strong and great reviews, hopefully it’s only a matter of time before a U.S. distributor snags the film.
