Andrea Riseborough to Play Serial Imposter in Psychological Drama ‘Nancy’ (Exclusive)

6 February 2017 1:15 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“Birdman” actress Andrea Riseborough is set to star in the psychological drama “Nancy.”

The film from director Christina Choe also stars J. Smith-Cameron, Ann Dowd, John Leguizamo, and Steve Buscemi.

Riseborough plays a serial imposter, who becomes perilously close to losing her entire identity — and the only person who’s ever truly loved her — when her elaborate lies inevitably unravel.

Principal photography has started in upstate New York with a crew comprised of all-female department heads. The film will be produced by Amy Lo, Michelle Cameron, and Riseborough. “Nancy” is a Mental Pictures, Mother Sucker, and Eon Productions movie, in association with Gamechanger Films.

Executive producers are Eon’s Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, best known for producing the “James Bond” franchise, and Gamechanger’s Mynette Louie.

“Nancy” marks Choe’s feature directorial debut, following her Slamdance Film Festival grand jury award win for a short film, a residency at The MacDowell Colony, »

Rebecca Hall Airs a Story in Exclusive Clip From Antonio Campos’ ‘Christine’

17 January 2017 7:06 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

One of the best performances of the last year can be found in the latest film from Afterschool and Simon Killer director Antonio Campos, the character study Christine. His first feature based on a true story, it follows the final weeks of the life of Christine Chubbuck (Rebecca Hall), a Florida-based news reporter who committed suicide live on air in the summer of 1974.
