Luc Besson mulls Hungary shoot for 'Valérian'

27 August 2015 4:40 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Director courts controversy in France amid tax credit stand-off.

Luc Besson is threatening to shoot his ambitious sci-fi picture Valérian and the City of a Thousand Planets in Hungary rather than France if regulations governing French film credits are not tweaked to accommodate the production.

The ambitious $180m production is not eligible for a 20% tax credit for French films, due to the fact it will be in English and star a mainly non-French cast, and does not qualify for the Tax Rebate for International Production (Trip) either because it is a local production.

“I’m in a legal hole,” Besson said in an interview on a culture programme on French radio station Rtl this week.

“I’ve contacted the authorities because I’d really like to shoot the film in France. There is a tiny little problem: the tax credits.

“In France, they’re set at 20% for French films and 30% for foreigners but I am a French »

British actor Clive Owen (The Knick) is set to star in Luc Besson’s big-budget sci-fi film Valerian, based on the graphic novels by Pierre Christin and Jean-Claude Mézières first published in 1967.

Besson has been working on the script for the film for many years, but “started again” after he saw Avatar and decided he had things to change because of it. Production is expected to get underway next year.

Valerian is set for release in 2017.

‘The Knick: The Complete First Season’ DVD Review

20 August 2015 6:53 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

What do you get if you cross a period drama set in the early twentieth century, and a medical drama? The answer is The Knick, a Steven Soderbergh directed television show at the deadly cutting edge of surgery… Set in New York’s Knickerbocker Hospital the show focuses on the lives of the people who work there. From Dr. John W. Thackery (Clive Owen) the cocaine addicted head surgeon, Dr. Algernon Edwards (Andre Holland) the brilliant new doctor looked down on because of his skin colour, to the rich families that fund the hospital, we get a taste of hospital life at its darkest.

There is an annoying undertone to The Knick, but this annoyance has a point. Edwards is a doctor who is quite simply brilliant, but this isn’t accepted by most around him. Because of prejudices against his skin colour the doctors push him down, even try »

Luc Besson Grabs Clive Owen For Valerian

19 August 2015 4:27 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

For those who don’t know, Luc Besson is planning a big-budget adaptation of the French sci-fi graphic novel series, Valerian. With $180 million at his disposal, the filmmaker is busy putting together a stellar cast, and today, Deadline brings word that he’s nabbed Clive Owen to star alongside Dane DeHaan and Cara Delevingne.

No word yet on who Owen will play, but he’s sure to have a sizeable role in the film, which will focus on the titular spatio-temporal agent and his female companion, Laureline, as they travel through space and time, presumably fighting evil.

The series is set in the 28th century, when “humanity has discovered the means of travelling instantaneously in time and space,” and “Earth itself has become a virtual utopia with most of the population living a life of leisure in a virtual reality dream-state while ruled by the benign Technocrats of the First Circle. »

Clive Owen has joined Dane DeHaan and Cara Delevingne in Luc Besson’s science-fiction movie “Valerian” for EuropaCorp.

Valerian and Laureline are agents of the Spatio-Temporal Service, which protects the planets of the Terran Empire.

Owen stars in the Cinemax series “The Knick.” He’s repped by CAA.

Luc Besson already has Dane DeHaan and the Pokemon-loving Cara Delevingne aboard for his ambitious new sci-fi epic Valerian. With those two in place, he’s adding to the roster, with Clive Owen signing on to play a character called Commander Arün Filitt.Originally created by writer Pierre Christian and artist Jean-Claude Mezieres in 1967, the series of graphic novels charts the adventures of the titular time-travelling agent (DeHaan) and his female sidekick, Laureline (Delevingne).

Cinemax Cuts Itself a Piece of Prestige Series Pie with "The Knick"

19 August 2015 12:37 PM, PDT | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

Any show that falls under the description of “period piece” has a considerably harder time getting made due to the high expense involved in reproducing a bygone era combined with the seemingly increasing likelihood that the show won’t make it past its first season and, ultimately, make its broadcast network a profit. That probably explains why shows fitting that description, like Deadwood, Rome, and now The Knick, tend to pop up more on premium networks where recouping expenses through advertising isn’t a concern: they just need to produce compelling drama and see if their audience, who’ve already paid, will bite. The Knick boasts production values that beautifully recreate early 1900s New York and boasts a cast led by Clive Owen that seizes your attention in the first 10 minutes of the pilot and keeps you entranced—unless you’re a bit squeamish at the sight of fake blood »

Andre Holland interview: The Knick

19 August 2015 9:52 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We sat down with Andre Holland, who plays Algernon Edwards in Steven Soderbergh's suberb period medical drama, The Knick...

The Knick offers a frantic tour of a racially-charged New York, difficult doctors and messy early twentieth century surgery. We caught up with Andre Holland, who plays surgeon Algernon Edwards, to talk about double consciousness, arrogant surgeons and finding fake blood under your fingernails... The Knick is a show that revels in tension and never more so than with Algernon, who falls between so many positions. Is this something that you’ve consciously built into the character? A lot of it was already there on the page but it’s definitely something that I felt like I understand and have lent a certain amount of dimension to. I did a lot a research on this part and one of the things I read was W. E. B. Du Bois and »

The Knick, The Duff, The Town That Dreaded Sundown, Run All Night, Song One, Still the Water, Open Range – reviews

Steven Soderbergh’s gory hospital drama is grotesquely human, Pygmalion is reworked with sass and Kevin Costner puts soul into the sagebrush

“There is simply too much television,” opined John Landgraf, CEO of cable network FX, last week, prompting applause and derision in approximately equal measure. For the purposes of this humble column, he’s right: several much-discussed recent series make their DVD debuts tomorrow, and while I’d like to weigh in on Wayward Pines or Humans, the 24-hour day has other ideas. I can, however, join the chorus of approval for The Knick (Warner, 15), which admittedly jumped ahead in my small-screen queue owing to some big-screen bias on my part: Steven Soderbergh retains must-see status in any medium for this dedicated follower.

Because of his supposed retirement from feature film-making, this 10-episode medical drama is the most Soderberghian viewing experience we’re going to get. Set in New »
