Locarno: ‘Let the Corpses Tan,’ ‘Iceman,’ ’Winter Brothers,’ ‘Lucky’ Lead Buzz and Biz

9 August 2017 3:22 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Locarno, Switzerland — “Let the Corpses Tan,” “Iceman,” “Winter Brothers” and “Lucky” led biz or buzz as Locarno headed towards its final straits on Wednesday morning, with, of new films, “Three Peaks” and “A Skin So Soft” having drawn to date maybe the biggest critical plaudits – often the driver  of subsequent sales on Locarno titles.

Of on-site deals, maybe the biggest for Europe sealed to date has been Magnolia Intl.’s for Germany, Austria and Switzerland with Zurich-based Xenix Filmsdistribution on John Carroll Lynch’s “Lucky,” starring Harry Dean Stanton, and a Locarno International Competition player.

World premiering at SXSW, the title scored a rave Variety review earlier this year, being described as “an unassumingly wonderful little film about nothing in particular and everything that’s important.” Locarno audience and critical reaction was also positive.

Most of the surrounding territories were closed on “Lucky” in Cannes so the film will get released across the region, said »

Rossy de Palma Joins Oscar Martinez on Rodrigo Bellott’s ‘I Miss You’ (Exclusive)

24 July 2017 6:36 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Madrid — Spanish star and Almodovar icon Rossy de Palma is making her U.S. film debut in “Tu Me Manques” (I Miss You), directed by Rodrigo Bellott (“Perfidy”), which shoots this summer in New York and Bolivia.

Breaking out with “Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown” in an association with Almodovar which runs through multiple movies and Goya nominations for “Kika” (1993) and “The Flower of My Secret” (1995) to her role as a straight-talking maid in last year’s “Julieta,” De Palma’s asymmetric features has won her fame and elevation to fashion muse for designers Jean-Paul Gautier and Thierry Mugler, a status part secured by her role in Robert Altman’s 1994 “Pret-a-Porter.” De Palma served on the main competition jury of the 2015 Cannes Festival.  In France, De Palma will be seen later this year in Amanda Sthers’ “Madame.”

In her first U.S.-shot movie, “I Miss You,” De »

Platino Awards: ’The Distinguished Citizen’ Takes Best Picture

22 July 2017 3:24 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Madrid — Gaston Duprat and Mariano Cohn’s “The Distinguished Citizen,” a lament for small-town small-mindedness, won big at the 4th Platino Ibero-American Film Awards taking its top best picture prize, and multiple further plaudits.

Further top honors went to Pedro Almodovar, best director for “Julieta,” and Sonia Braga, who took the actress plaudit for “Aquarius at a ceremony attended by Edward James Olmos, Rob Schneider, John Leguizamo, Sonia Braga, Kate del Castillo, Geraldine Chaplin, “Narcos” actor Manolo Cardona, Oscar Martinez, Rosy de Palma and Martina Gusman. Also present, among directors: Almodovar, Pablo Trapero, J.A. Bayona and Andi Baiz.

In all, Spanish productions swept 12 or the 14 jury prizes, voted by a jury of professionals who had participated in previous editions. That may be put down in part to “A Monster Calls” featuring among contenders, and winning big time in the technical department, and “The Distinguished Citizen” being co-produced out of Spain.

Terry Gilliam Finishes Shooting Don Quixote After 17 Years

5 June 2017 12:23 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It took nearly two decades, 17 years to be exact, but filmmaker Terry Gilliam has finally wrapped production on his passion project, The Man Who Killed Don Quixote. The filmmaker took to social media to announce that filming is finished, while posting one final photo from the set before returning home. Here's what the filmmaker had to say on his Facebook page about the production wrap.

"Sorry for the long silence. I've been busy packing the truck and am now heading home. After 17 years, we have completed the shoot of The Man Who Killed Don Quixote. Muchas gracias to all the team and believers. Quixote Vive!"

Terry Gilliam made this statement on Facebook, while posting a photo of a truck on the set, and another of a "Happy Ending Rainbow over Los Suenos, Don Quixote's village of dreams." The director first started working on the film in 1989, and had originally »

Terry Gilliam wraps production on The Man Who Killed Don Quixote

4 June 2017 1:21 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Well, here’s some news you probably never thought you’d read: Terry Gilliam has taken to Facebook to announce that he’s wrapped production on his long-gestating passion project The Man Who Killed Don Quixote!

Gilliam has spent the best part of two decades trying to get his adaptation of Miguel de Cervantes’ classic novel off the ground. He came close in 2000 with a cast that included Jean Rochefort as Don Quixote and Johnny Depp as his lead character Toby, only for the production to encounter numerous difficulties before it was eventually abandoned (and documented in the 2002 film Lost in La Mancha).

This take on the project stars Jonathan Pryce (Game of Thrones) as Quixote and Adam Driver (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) as Toby, while the rest of the cast includes Olga Kurylenko (Quantum of Solace), Stellan Skarsgård (Avengers: Age of Ultron), Joana Ribeiro (A Uma Hora Incerta »

Julieta

28 March 2017 12:01 PM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Pedro Almodóvar bounces back with an absorbing saga of a mother and daughter told in an interesting style. A woman feels isolated, powerless, alone and anguished about what has happened in her life. Is any of it her fault? Or is all of it her fault? How do we hold relationships together, or do they fall apart no matter what we do? Highly rewarding dramas still exist; they don’t all go begging for Oscar nominations… just learn to read subtitles and you too can find out how the rest of the world lives.

Terry Gilliam’s The Man Who Killed Don Quixote begins production (yes, really)

12 March 2017 3:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

17 years after the plug was pulled on his first attempt, Terry Gilliam has now commenced production on his passion project The Man Who Killed Don Quixote, IndieWire is reporting.

As announced last year (when the project was delayed once again), Star Wars: The Force Awakens star Adam Driver is set to take on the lead role originally portrayed by Johnny Depp in the abandoned 2000 version. However, it seems that Gilliam regular Jonathan Pryce (Brazil, The Adventures of Baron Munchausen) will now take on the role of Quixote, replacing Michael Palin (who himself replaced John Hurt, Robert Duvall and Jean Rochefort).

Joining Driver and Pryce in the cast are Olga Kurylenko (Quantum of Solace), Stellan Skarsgård (Avengers: Age of Ultron), Joana Ribeiro (A Uma Hora Incerta), Eva Basteiro-Bertoli (Black Bread) and Rossy de Palma (Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown).

Newswire: Terry Gilliam’s The Man Who Killed Don Quixote is back in production, for now

10 March 2017 11:54 AM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

It has now been 18 years since Terry Gilliam first tried to film The Man Who Killed Don Quixote, a.k.a. The Movie That Will Probably Kill Terry Gilliam, Instead. In that time, Gilliam has faced a Job-like series of setbacks on the film, from flash floods to sick actors to dead actors to some “Portuguese chap” who couldn’t deliver the financing he supposedly promised. And yet, Gilliam has persisted on the film for almost two decades, blowing through our entire stock of jokes about “tilting at windmills” and the entire project becoming the exact definition of “quixotic.”

Today, IndieWire reports that Gilliam has hopped back in the saddle again, putting together an unnamed source and an Instagram post from original cast member Rossy De Palma that indicate that production has once again resumed:

By all accounts, the film still stars Adam Driver—the latest in ...

Terry Gilliam Has Begun Shooting ‘The Man Who Killed Don Quixote,’ For Real This Time

9 March 2017 3:48 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Terry Gilliam has finally begun filming on his very, very long-gestating passion project, “The Man Who Killed Don Quixote.”

A source close to the production confirmed to IndieWire that shooting began this week. There’s also the first photos from the set in the form of two Instagram posts, one from actress Rossy de Palma (who was to be part of the movie’s original production in 2000) and one from makeup artist Sylvie Imbert.

De Palma’s post, dated Feb. 27, is a photo of the cover of the film’s screenplay captioned, “FinallyHereWeAre.” Imbert’s post, dated March 6, shows her poring over a production grid for the film and is captioned, “Final touches last night.”

The original 2000 production was infamously delayed and waylaid by a variety of disasters, which were captured in the 2002 documentary “Man of La Mancha.” In October 2016, Gilliam was supposed to go into production with leads Adam Driver and Michael Palin, »

Connected film festival attendees learned about Pedro Almodóvar before everybody else, especially if they had an understanding of new developments in Spanish cinema. Film school had shown us nothing but the very exceptional work of Luis Buñuel, most of which is really from Mexico and France. In the 1980s we Angelenos were just getting access to films by the old-school ‘traditional’ rebel Spaniards Carlos Saura and Juan Antonio Bardem. »
