Ealing Studios Acquires Stake in GreenAcre Films as TV Expansion Continues

15 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

London — London’s Ealing Studios is looking to further expand its TV division by acquiring a significant stake in production company GreenAcre Films, and forging a creative partnership with the company. Earlier this year, ITV commissioned Ealing to produce two stand-alone films based on the “Maigret” novels, starring Rowan Atkinson.

Ealing’s stake in Greenacre will see them develop an “ambitious and innovative” TV slate for both U.K. and international broadcasters. This is the first of what Ealing says will be many new partnerships at the newly restructured Ealing, which is headed by Ben Latham-Jones.

GreenAcre was co-founded by Nadine Marsh-Edwards and Amanda Jenks in 2010 and became a division of Wall to Wall in 2012. They will continue to co-produce their current drama slate, which includes projects for HBO, BBC and ITV. As well as developing TV projects, they will also expand their feature film roster, which already has a »

'Child 44' Director Daniel Espinosa To Helm 'The Emigrants'

19 May 2015 1:55 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Though he broke out with "Easy Money" and garnered a lot of attention from Hollywood, one could argue that Daniel Espinosa hasn't really lived up to his Next Hot Thing status. "Safe House" was a forgettable action flick, and this spring's star-studded "Child 44" was a complete bomb, but miraculously not a huge loss for Lionsgate, thanks to some smart accounting. So perhaps it's not a surprise that the director has set up an upcoming project in Sweden. Read More: Review: 'Child 44' Starring Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace, Gary Oldman, And Joel Kinnaman Screen Daily reports that Espinosa will helm a new adaptation of Vilhelm Moberg’s novel "The Emigrants." Cinephiles will know that Jan Troell made a wonderfully received 1971 movie based on the same material (it earned four Academy Award nominations including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actress, and Best Adapted Screenplay), but maybe there's room for improvement? »

Noomi Rapace On Warming Up For ‘Callas’ – Cannes Video

19 May 2015 9:58 AM, PDT | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

Noomi Rapace has had a pretty voracious appetite for challenging roles since before she became an international name thanks to the Swedish-language Millennium trilogy. In that series she played tough-as-nails Lisbeth Salander. It takes a rare talent to go from that to, in a few short years, taking on world-famous soprano Maria Callas in an upcoming biopic about her affair with shipping magnate Aristotle Onassis. But Rapace has always had a fearless streak. On a… »

14 May 2015 9:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Noomi Rapace (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Prometheus) has signed on to play the influential opera singer Maria Callas in a new romantic biopic entitled Callas, which is set to be directed by Niko Caro (Whale Rider, North Country) and will revolve around the passionate relationship she had with Aristotle Onassis over almost two decades.

“This movie is about an extraordinary woman whose deepest desire is to lead an ordinary life with the man of her choice,” said producer Guido De Angelis. “Callas was la Divina, a goddess, who just wanted to be a normal woman; she found out she couldn’t. It sounds like an ancient myth. Niki Caro immediately identified and superbly built into the script this epic, deeply emotional and dramatic quality of the story. And we are absolutely thrilled that Noomi has come unboard, as she is dream casting for Callas. We are convinced she »

First Poster for Niki Caro's 'Callas' Starring Noomi Rapace as the Legendary Opera Singer

13 May 2015 7:23 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Niki Caro is back to work following McFarland, USA with Callas, a biopic centered around the relationship legendary opera singer Maria Callas (Noomi Rapace) had with Aristotle Onassis over almost two decades. She's acknowledged to be one of the more important and recognizable opera legends of all time and certainly was one of the most emotive and visually dramatic. Caro adapted the screenplay from Alfonso Signorini's biography "Too Proud, Too Fragile" and the first poster is actually a riff on the cover (see right) of Signorini's book. Unfortunately it appears the book isn't available in English as I was only able to find Spanish and Italian versions at Amazon. Content Media will handle worldwide sales and Content's President of Film, Jamie Carmichael said, "We fell in love with Callas instantly. It's such an emotional and powerful story of one of the world's great romances - and we're certain that »

First Look: Noomi Rapace As Maria Callas In Biopic Directed By Niki Caro

13 May 2015 6:28 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Hollywood has been trying forever to bring the story of opera legend Maria Callas to the big screen. Years and years ago Eva Mendes was attached to a project that never happened, while last year Meryl Streep was briefly linked to a movie that would've been helmed by the late Mike Nichols. But perhaps churning the longest in development has been "Callas," based on the Alfonso Signorini book "Too Proud, Too Fragile." Eva Green was at one point slated to lead but moved on from the project, and four years ago, "Whale Rider" helmer, Niki Caro, signed up to direct. That was pretty much the last we heard of it, but it looks like things are pushing ahead.
