'20th Century Women' named Nyff centrepiece

27 July 2016 11:41 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Mike Mill’s upcoming drama will receive its world premiere at the 54th New York Film Festival on October 8.

20th Century Women takes place in the bohemian household of a single mother in the Californian locale of Santa Barbara in 1979.

Annette Bening plays the mother and newcomer Lucas Jade Zumann her teenage son. Sharing the home are an itinerant carpenter (Billy Crudup), a punk artist (Greta Gerwig) and the son’s rebellious friend (Elle Fanning). 

“I was taken aback by 20th Century Women,” said Nyff director and selection committee chair Kent Jones. “It’s made with an extraordinarily unusual level of craft and attention to detail, human and visual, which is now all but extinct.

“As someone who actually lived through 1979 in middle-class America, I will testify to the fact that Mike Mills and his remarkable cast approach the level of the uncanny. I felt like I was back there, with all the »

20th Century Women,” the new film by Mike Mills (“Beginners”) starring Annette Bening, has positioned itself for a run at awards season with a world premiere as the centerpiece screening of the 2016 New York Film Festival.

The film is written and directed by Mills, whose last film, “Beginners,” won its star Christopher Plummer a 2012 Academy Award.

Earlier this year A24 picked up “20th Century Women” for a December release. A gala screening at Nyff, the tightly curated festival presented by Film Society of Lincoln Center, gives the film a high-profile head start on attracting awards-season buzz. Megan Ellison of Annapurna Films, Anne Carey of Archer Gray and Youree Henley produce.

29 March 2016 8:46 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sofia Coppola will write and direct a remake of “The Beguiled,” the 1971 drama that starred Clint Eastwood, an individual familiar with the deal told Variety.

Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst and Elle Fanning are in talks to star in the film.

Sofia Coppola to Remake ‘The Beguiled’ With Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst, and Elle Fanning

29 March 2016 6:59 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

While we were treated to her pitch-perfect holiday special A Very Murray Christmas fairly recently, it’s still been three long years since the last feature film from Sofia Coppola. Thankfully, it looks like we won’t have to wait much longer as her next film has been unveiled. After developing — then ultimately dropping — a big-budget remake of The Little Mermaid for Universal, this one sounds far more compelling.

According to The Wrap, she’s set to write and direct a remake of Clint Eastwood‘s early-70s drama The Beguiled. With the original directed by Don Siegel, it followed a Civil War soldier who gets rescued by a young girl from an all-female boarding school as jealousy and betrayal rise up as he recovers. While the male lead has yet to be cast, Coppola will be reteaming with some familiar faces as Elle Fanning, Nicole Kidman and Kirsten Dunst »

Coppola Remaking Eastwood's "Beguiled"

29 March 2016 1:55 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Following her backing away from the Chloe Moretz-led live-action "The Little Mermaid," Sofia Coppola has found her next film - she'll write and direct a new take on the 1971 Clint Eastwood-led period drama "The Beguiled".

Based on Thomas P. Cullinan's Southern Gothic novel and set at the end of the U.S. civil war, the original Don Siegel-directed film followed an injured Yankee soldier rescued from death by a young student at an all-girl boarding school in Louisiana.

At first the all-female staff and pupils are scared, but as he starts to recover he charms them one by one and the sexually repressed atmosphere becomes filled with jealousy and deceit. He soon gets his comeuppance in a quite painful way.

Elle Fanning is on board to play a student, Nicole Kidman will play the head mistress, and Kirsten Dunst to play one of the instructors. The key »
