17 April 2015 5:41 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Hanway Films secures deal with Lionsgate for UK rights; producer Stephen Woolley says the twist in the film trumps The Crying Game.

Alan Rickman, Olivia Cooke and Douglas Booth have signed on to star in gothic murder mystery The Limehouse Golem, from a screenplay by Jane Goldman (Kingsman: The Secret Service).

Goldman, whose screenplay work includes The Woman In Black and X-Men: First Class, adapted Peter Ackyroyd’s bestselling novel Dan Leno and the Limehouse Golem.

HanWay Films have boarded worldwide sales rights to the film, which will be produced by Number 9 Films and directed by Juan Carlos Medina (Painless).

Lionsgate Films has newly acquired UK and Irish distribution rights to the film from Hanway.

The Limehouse Golem is set in 1880, in the dangerous Limehouse district of London where a series of grisly murders have shaken the community. The press claim they’re the work of The Golem - a legendary creature from dark times - and the »

Star-studded English-language dramas from Todd Haynes, Gus Van Sant, Denis Villeneuve and Justin Kurzel will vie for the Palme d'Or alongside new films by Valerie Donzelli, Jacques Audiard, Hou Hsiao-hsien and Jia Zhangke at t

That said, a lot of high profile films are set to be in the running for this year's Palme d'Or. Also making the list this year are Denis Villeneuve's drug cartel drama "Sicario," Justin Kurzel's Michael Fassbender-led "Macbeth," Yorgos Lanthimos' Colin Farrell-led sci-fi tale "The Lobster," Paolo Sorrentino's Michael Caine-led drama "Youth," Jia Zhangke's multi-generational drama "Mountains May Depart," Matteo Garrone »

Cannes 2015: the Brits aren't coming, but I'm still glad to go

16 April 2015 8:57 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

English-language movies will be everywhere at this year’s film festival – it’s just a shame so few Brits are behind them

It is always an exciting moment, and not just for trainspotters. The announcement of the Cannes competition list is effectively the beginning of a new film year, and this is the first with the festival’s new president, Pierre Lescure, who is taking over from the legendary, mandarin-figure Gilles Jacob. Although the bullish, vigorous Thierry Frémaux is, of course, the general delegate and prime mover in the choice of films, the choice of jury members and therefore the likely choice of winners. The dominance of Cannes on the international film festival circuit is such that these are the films that will be seen, distributed, talked about and given prizes in the months to come.

It isn’t, on the face of it, a big Cannes year for Brits. »

Cannes 2015 Line-Up Includes Pixar’s Inside Out; La Tete Haute To Open Festival

16 April 2015 8:05 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The 68th Cannes Film Festival is now little under a month away, and Variety has the skinny on the event’s impressive line-up, which includes Carol and French comedy-drama La Tete Haute – itself set to open the festival on May 13 – not to mention the likes of Pixar’s emotional animation Inside Out and Mad Max: Fury Road screening out of competition.

For a full rundown of those candidates in question, you can consult the list down below. Due to take place from May 13 to May 25, it’s expected that more films will be added to the cinematic selection in the coming days, but already the billing is chock full of eye-catching releases. Interestingly, the aforementioned La Tete Haute will be the first festival opener since 1987 to be directed by a female filmmaker, in this case, Emmanuelle Bercot.

The 68th Cannes Film Festival will begin on May 13 and run right through »

Complete 2015 Cannes Film Festival Lineup

16 April 2015 7:22 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The 2015 Cannes Film Festival lineup was announced this morning and it's quite impressive as it includes several titles I'd be rushing to line up for, which makes my not going for the second year in a row all the more frustrating. Titles I'd be most excited to see including the new Jacques Audiard movie Dheepan, the new film from Yorgos Lanthimos The Lobster and Denis Villeneuve's Sicario. Matteo Garrone's The Tale of Tales is obviously an exciting title as are Macbeth starring Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard, Carol from Todd Haynes and Youth from Paolo Sorrentino. Gus Van Sant will arrive on the Croisette with The Sea of Trees starring Matthew McConaughey, Pixar will arrive with Inside Out, Woody Allen's Irrational Man will screen and we already knew Mad Max: Fury Road would screen. I won't lie, seeing the lineup had me considering looking at the bank »

16 April 2015 4:23 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Rome — With three Italian titles selected in the 68th Cannes film festival competition — and four in the official selection — Italy’s film industry is on cloud nine over its most robust representation on the Croisette in at least two decades.

“Four Italian films in Cannes bear the fruit of the talents of our auteurs and prove the maturity of an industry once again at the center of international attention, thanks to the strong export of movies and TV series,” enthused Italo motion picture association Anica, in a statement issued right after Cannes announced its lineup.

It comprises Matteo Garrone’s ambitious English-language horror/fantasy “The Tale of Tales,” toplining Salma Hayek, Vincent Cassel and John C. Reilly; Paolo Sorrentino’s “Youth” (“La Giovinezza”), also in English, about a retired orchestra conductor, played by Michael Caine, in an alpine resort; and Nanni Moretti’s “Mia Madre,” which marks Moretti’s third »

'Macbeth,' Todd Haynes' 'Carol,' Pixar's 'Inside Out' Lead 2015 Cannes Film Festival Line-Up

16 April 2015 3:13 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Happy cinephile Christmas, everyone! If you heard the pitter-patter of feet, and the salted caramel popcorn and Criterion DVD you left out overnight are gone, it means that Thierry Fremaux has been here, and left behind the announcement for the most hotly-anticipated festival line-up of the year for the 2015 Cannes Film Festival.  After weeks and months of speculation, and the surprisingly late announcement of the opening film a few days ago, in the shape of Emmanuelle Bercot’s “La Tete haute,” the full line-up (at least in terms of Competition, Un Certain Regard and Special Screenings — Director’s Fortnight and Critic’s Week will follow in the next few days) has been unveiled. And it’s pretty exciting.  Relying slightly less on the familiar faces than in previous years (with a particularly intriguing Un Certain Regard full of fresh filmmakers), there are still a few big name Cannes auteurs: Paolo Sorrentino, »

Cannes Unveils 2015 Official Selection Lineup

16 April 2015 3:12 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Star-studded English-language dramas from Todd Haynes, Gus Van Sant, Denis Villeneuve, Justin Kurzel, Paolo Sorrentino and Matteo Garrone will vie for the Palme d’Or alongside new films by Valerie Donzelli, Jacques Audiard, Hou Hsiao-hsien and Jia Zhangke at the 68th annual Cannes Film Festival, which unveiled its official selection lineup on Thursday.

While there are only two U.S. directors in competition — Haynes with “Carol,” a 1950s lesbian love story starring Cate Blanchett, and Van Sant with his suicide drama “The Sea of Trees,” pairing Matthew McConaughey and Ken Watanabe — this year’s Palme race looks to feature more high-profile Hollywood talent than any in recent memory. Canada’s Villeneuve (“Prisoners,” “Enemy”) will bring his Mexican drug-cartel drama “Sicario,” with Emily Blunt, Benicio Del Toro and Josh Brolin, while Australia’s Kurzel (“The Snowtown Murders”) secured a Palme berth for “Macbeth,” his Shakespeare adaptation toplining Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard. »
