Vivendi’s Bolloré Suggests He’ll Quit Canal Plus’ Supervisory Board

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

Paris — Vincent Bollore, the controversial boss of media conglomerate Vivendi, strongly suggested Monday that he would soon step down from the supervisory board of pay-tv service Canal Plus, which Vivendi owns.

At a Canal Plus news conference, Bollore was asked to confirm whether he was on his way out of Canal Plus’ supervisory board, following rumors to that effect in the French press over the weekend.

“I will chair Vivendi’s board until Feb. 17, 2022. At Canal Plus, I don’t need to be much present,” said Bollore, just a few days after responding to questions in the French Senate about his allegedly overbearing influence on the editorial content of Canal Plus. Leaks have suggested that Arnaud de Puyfontaine, CEO of Vivendi, might replace Bollore as chair of Canal Plus’ supervisory board. Puyfontaine declined to comment.

“My role is to strategize in the long term for Vivendi, stay focused on objectives and give Vivendi enough time to see »

First Trailer For Andrea Arnold’s Cannes Winner ‘American Honey’

21 June 2016 6:06 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Following up Wuthering Heights early this decade, Fish Tank director Andrea Arnold is finally back with American Honey, which picked up the Jury Prize at this year’s Cannes Film Festival (and we also named it one of the best of the festival). Starring newcomer Sasha Lane, as well as Shia Labeouf and Riley Keough, it follows teenager who gets caught up with a traveling magazine sales crew as she ventures through the Midwest. Shot once again by Robbie Ryan, it looks like a vibrant drama judging by the first trailer, which A24 has released today.

We said in our review, “European directors have often faltered when crossing the Atlantic. Billy Wilder and Wim Wenders found things to say where Paolo Sorrentino could not. American Honey is certainly the former. Based on a 2007 article from the New York Times, it’s a backwater American road movie directed by an Englishwoman, »

Jude Law Stars As The Pontiff In First Teaser For HBO Miniseries The Young Pope

16 June 2016 8:34 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Jude Law stands as the first American pontiff in today’s new trailer for The Young PopePaolo Sorrentino’s eight-part miniseries that is set for a premiere on HBO at some stage later this year.

Pulling together creative talent from Italy, America, Spain, England and France, HBO’s religious drama is nothing short of an international affair, and given that The Young Pope heralds Sorrentino’s return to English-language territory in light of his well-deserved Oscar win for The Great Beauty, we’re definitely excited to see what he has in store for us.

Earning the backing of Sky and Canal Plus, it’s the filmmaker’s first English since last year’s comedy-drama Youth, and here’s how HBO pitches The Young Pope: “From Paolo Sorrentino, director of the Academy Award®-winning ‘The Great Beauty,’ ‘The Young Pope’ tells the controversial story of the beginning of Pius Xiii’s pontificate. The eight-episode series stars Jude Law as the complex and conflicted Pius Xiii, the first American pope.”

Also starring Diane Keaton, Silvio Orlando, Scott Shepherd, Cécile de France, Javier Cámara, Ludivine Sagnier, Toni Bertorelli, and James Cromwell, look for the white smoke to come billowing out of the HBO chimneys when The Young Pope premieres later this year. »

Jude Law Gets Holy In The First Trailer For Paolo Sorrentino’s Miniseries ‘The Young Pope’

With great power comes great drama. Generally speaking, it’s always been the corridors of political power (“House Of Cards,” “The West Wing,” etc.) that have been fertile ground for storytellers looking to explore the collision of ambition, humanity and ruthlessness, but there hasn’t been a show, at least in recent memory, that does the same for […]

When in Rome: watch Jude Law as Pius Xiii, the first American Pope

15 June 2016 3:16 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Jude Law is a chainsmoking young pontiff in Paolo Sorrentino’s new show, The Young Pope. Will he prove a miracle, or the ultimate broken male antihero?

How excited should we be about The Young Pope? Very, probably. Written and directed by Paolo Sorrentino, creator of The Great Beauty and Youth, all signs point to the series being a strikingly auteured vision that could have only been created at this specific moment in time.

Then again, The Young Pope is also a programme in which Jude Law plays an ambitious, American, cigarette-smoking Pope. That’s all we have to go on. The finished result could be a rehash of every male antihero trope that’s come to represent the golden age of TV. Fortunately, a trailer has just emerged. Let’s take a look.

Watch: Jude Law in First Trailer for Paolo Sorrentino’s ‘The Young Pope’

15 June 2016 12:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

We have a “The Young Pope” trailer.

Sky has unveiled the first official teaser trailer for Paolo Sorrentino’s English-language “The Young Pope” toplining Jude Law as conservative cigarette-smoking American pontiff Pius Xiii and starring Diane Keaton as a nun, her first recurring role in a TV series. It also marks the first foray into TV by the director who won a foreign language Oscar with “The Great Beauty.”

The three-pronged Sky, HBO and Canal Plus collaboration is set to air starting in October on Sky’s Sky Atlantic channel in the five countries in which the pan-European pay-tv operates. They are: Italy, UK, Germany, Ireland and Austria. In France it will go out on Canal Plus. Other dates, including the U.S. bow on HBO, to follow.

These are notes about the Sorrentino series from a Sky statement:

“Lenny Belardo, aka Pius Xiii, is the first American Pope in history. Young and charming, his election might seem the result of a simple and effective media strategy by the College of Cardinals. But, as we know, appearances can be deceptive. Especially in the place and among the people who have chosen the great mystery of God as the guiding light of their existence. That place is the Vatican and those people are the leaders of the Catholic Church. And the most mysterious and contradictory figure of all turns out to be Pius Xiii himself. Shrewd and naïve, old-fashioned and very modern, doubtful and resolute, ironic, pedantic, hurt and ruthless, Pius Xiii tries to walk the long path of human loneliness to find a God for mankind. And for himself.”

The main cast comprises Jude Law as Pius Xiii;  Diane Keaton (Sister Mary); Silvio Orlando (Cardinal Voiello); Scott Shepherd (Cardinal Dussolier); Cecile de France (Sofia), Javier Cámara (Cardinal Gutierrez; Ludivine Sagnier (Esther); Tony Bertorelli (Cardinal Caltanissetta) and James Cromwell (Cardinal Michael Spencer).

The shoot took place mostly in Rome, including near the Vatican, and also in Venice and New York.

The Young Pope” is produced by Wildside and co-produced by Haut et Court TV and Mediapro. Executive Producers for Wildside are Lorenzo Mieli and Mario Gianani together with John Lyons.

Paris — Scandinavian powerhouse Scanbox has added “Molly’s Game,” “Tully” and “Paterson” to its acquisition slate, beefing up a lineup that already includes several award-winning films at Cannes, including Ken Loach’s Palme d’Or winner, “I, Daniel Blake” (pictured above).

Aaron Sorkin’s poker drama “Molly’s Game” and Jason Reitman’s comedy “Tully” — two of the hottest projects being shopped at Cannes’ market — were pre-bought by Scanbox, which has direct distribution operations in Sweden, Denmark and Finland, and works with Norsk Filmdistribusjon in Norway.

“The acquisition of ‘Molly’s Game’ and ‘Tully’ at script stage underscores our strategy to bank on world-class talent and projects with attractive packages, especially when we come on board at such an early stage,” said Paris-based Chris Briggs, partner and board member at Scanbox.

“Molly’s Game” marks the directorial debut of Sorkin, the critically-aclaimed screenwriter of “The Social Network,” “Steve Jobs” and “Moneyball. »
