2017 is going to be the year of Anya Taylor-Joy, mark our words. After a huge 2016 with attention-grabbing roles in The Witch, Morgan and more, which quickly put her on the map and made her one of Hollywood’s most exciting rising stars, she kicked off this year with the really rather fantastic Split. With several other projects lining up her slate, things look to keep shining bright for the actress and today brings word of yet another exciting career move.
That’s because Taylor-Joy has now joined The Sea Change, Kristin Scott Thomas’ directorial debut which she’ll also star in. The project is currently being shopped to buyers at the European Film Market and already has Mark Strong attached. Rocket Science is handling the sale and should all go according to plan, principal photography will get underway later this year.

The rising star is circling the romantic drama that Rocket Science has introduced to world buyers in Berlin.
Taylor-Joy, the breakout star of The Witch, will play an outspoken young woman whose arrival on a Greek island puts the troubled marriage of a playwright and his complex wife into perspective.
Taylor-Joy currently stars in M Night Shyamalan’s hit Split and played one of the leads in the much-fancied Sundance selection Thoroughbred, which Focus Features has acquired. She is in post-production on the thriller Marrowbone for Lionsgate.

While doing interview rounds for the currently released animated feature Sing, MTV asked Taron Egerton (star of Kingsman: The Secret Service) which superhero he would like to see Eggsy team up with for battle.
Egerton had fun with the fantasy scenario saying “That’s a hell of a question. I guess the tone of Deadpool would probably lend itself best. You know, some of the others are a little bit more family orientated, whereas Kingsman and Deadpool are both pretty R. So I guess maybe that would work quite well. Ryan’s a great guy, I met him very recently. Eggsy and Deadpool, who knows. I dread to think what those boys would get up to.”
Kingsman: The Golden Circle will reunite director Matthew Vaughn with stars Taron Egerton, Colin Firth, Mark Strong, Sophie Cookson and Edward Holcroft, while new additions to the cast include Channing Tatum (Foxcatcher), Halle Berry »

This fall, fans will get to see the continuing adventures of the world's most unlikely secret agent, the street-smart Eggsy (Taron Egerton), who returns in Kingsman: The Golden Circle. Last month, Taron Egerton offered a few updates about the sequel, which was recently pushed from a June 16 release to October 6, teasing that the story is bigger and badder, with more guns, while explaining that it's not for the faint of heart. During another interview, the actor revealed that a deleted scene from the first movie will be dusted off and brought back, implemented into the storyline of this sequel.
Den of Geek spoke with Taron Egerton for Sing, when the talk eventually shifted towards Kingsman 2. Last May, the arrival of a new poster confirmed the casting of iconic singer Elton John. The interviewer mentions to Taron Egerton that Elton John was featured as himself in the first film's script, »
Welcome back to another edition of Fantasy Fridays here at Lrm, where two real-life best friends put their heads together and pretend to be studio execs as they try to cast and hire other pertinent talent for upcoming geek properties.
This week, we turn our attention towards Green Lantern Corps, since there were recent developments on that front recently. The film recently snagged David S. Goyer (The Dark Knight, Blade) and Justin Rhodes (Grassroots) to write the script, with DC Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns producing and overseeing the project. There's also been talk that it'll have a sort of Lethal Weapon vibe to it, and that it'll sort of base itself off of the Sinestro Corps Wars.
Naturally, this news got all of us here at Lrm talking, »
