Luc Besson is Teaming Up with Angelina Jolie for a 'Big Scale' Movie

6 December 2011 2:35 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Well, what do we have here? Another brand new project from Luc Besson that will star his latest muse, Angelina Jolie? Yep, that's what it sounds like. Deadline is reporting that Besson's company Europacorp is developing and co-financing and even has Us distribution in the works. But despite all that we don't really know a title, or what it's about, besides a few pieces that have been let out, including that it's an "untitled big scale movie written and directed by Luc Besson." Big scale, as in sci-fi, I'm hoping? Not quite, as they go on to call it a "dramatic thriller that is rooted in true scientific elements." Interesting, very interesting. While Besson has worked with Natalie Portman, Milla Jovovich, Michelle Yeoh, Rie Rasmussen, Louise Bourgoin, Faye Dunaway, Madonna and even Maïwenn, he has never worked with Angelina Jolie before. But the report says the two are in "serious »

Los Angeles. "Human Zoo" + "Pete Smalls Is Dead"

12 November 2011 11:49 AM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

"Bearing a 2008 copyright, the film Human Zoo pops up for a one-week run at the New Beverly, presented by the theater's benefactor, Quentin Tarantino," writes Mark Olsen in the La Weekly. "Best known to moviegoers as the star of Luc Besson's Parisian fantasy Angel-a, model/artist Rie Rasmussen is here writer, director, star and even co-editor, with the story apparently based on the experiences of her adopted sister." Tarantino, notes Jeff Otto at the Playlist, calls Human Zoo "an electrifying directorial debut. It's as shocking and violent as it is moving and charming." Olsen, on the other hand: "Incoherent and self-indulgent, the film can't even manage to be particularly fun — even the supermodel sex scenes are disconcertingly disengaged, and everything is shot with a dingy patina that parades about as gritty realism."

Back to Otto: "Tarantino and Rasmussen have become good chums. She visited the set of Inglourious Basterds »

Director & Actress Rie Rasmussen Says Quentin Tarantino's 'Django Unchained' Will "Revolutionize" Hollywood

12 November 2011 9:52 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Earlier this week, The Playlist spoke with Rie Rasmussen, the model-turned-actress-turned writer/director/editor/producer. Best known to American audiences for her steamy makeout scene with Rebecca Romjin-Stamos in Brian De Palma’s “Femme Fatale,” Rasmussen has in recent years been carving out a new career behind the lens. Her short film, “Thinning the Herd,” traveled the festival circuit (and was up for a Palme d'Or at Cannes), and that was where the multitalented beauty first caught the eye of Quentin Tarantino. »

Director Rie Rasmussen Talks Human Zoo

11 November 2011 8:54 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Hand picked by Quentin Tarantino to make its U.S. premiere at the New Beverly Cinema in Los Angeles, starting on November 11th, Human Zoo marks the feature film debut of director Rie Rasmussen. The drama tells the story of Adria (Rasmussen), a half-Serbian and half-Albanian young woman whose past saw her in the war zone of an as yet undisputed Serbian Kosovo. Surrounded by violence and living with a sociopathic man, that life is in stark contrast to her life in present-day Marseille, as an illegal immigrant. The film takes audiences on Adria’s intense life journey, while illustrating the compromises we sometimes have to make, in order to survive. During a recent exclusive interview with Collider, filmmaker/actress/model Rie Rasmussen talked about how the history of the development of this story, her decision to star in the film (as well as writing and directing it) because she knew the character so well, »

The Lady Review

31 October 2011 1:08 PM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

HeyUGuys is very proud to be partnering with Cinémoi for our coverage of the Doha Tribeca Film Festival.

Luc Besson’s The Lady closed the festival and Julien Planté brings us his review.

“Freedom from fear”. Everything is there. This is the title of Aung San Suu Kyi’s speech in 1990 and the story of Luc Besson’s new movie, The Lady. This film, which closed the 3rd Doha Tribeca Film Festival on the 29th October, is arguably his best yet.

Luc Besson has a habit of falling in love with his characters, sometimes even his actresses. We saw it with Nikita (Anne Parillaud), Angel-a (Rie Rasmussen), Leeloo and Joan of Arc (Milla Jovovich), and even more recently with Adèle Blanc-Sec (Louise Bourgoin). Here, however, he falls in love with a real person, a strong individual with an inner beauty, a woman who doesn’t need money, power or fame, »
