After breaking out in David Fincher’s The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo with her Oscar-nominated turn as hacker Lisbeth Salander, Rooney Mara has steadily cemented her reputation as one of the most talented young actresses working today with strong performances in Ain’t Them No Bodies Saints, Side Effects and Her. And she doesn’t look to be slowing down anytime soon, with Stephen Daldry’s Trash, an untitled Terrence Malick project and erotic thriller Carol in the can. Now, we’ve learned that Mara has booked another high-profile gig leading the Jim Sheridan-directed The Secret Scripture.
Mara will replace Jessica Chastain in the drama, “about a 100-year-old woman named Roseanne who recounts her life in mental institutions in a secret memoir.” She will be playing the younger version of Roseanne, “who survives a traumatic childhood only to see her life utterly changed by a vindictive Catholic priest. »

The following clip is Nsfw, assuming you’re a repressed 19th-century manservant.
If you’re not: Here’s a first look at Liv Ullmann’s Miss Julie, a period piece based on the 1888 Strindberg play of the same name. Jessica Chastain plays the titular character, the feisty daughter of a count; Colin Farrell plays Jean, the valet who’s loved Julie since she was a girl. (“Loved,” here, means he’s had “nasty thoughts” about her since childhood.) Naturally, things get complicated when the two become entangled—more along the lines of Quills than Downton Abbey, if this slow-burning international trailer is any indication. »

Now that its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival (Tiff) has been locked in, we have a first trailer for Liv Ullmann’s Miss Julie, an 1880s-set erotic thriller about the power struggle between an aristocratic woman and her father’s sexually frustrated valet. With the sublime Jessica Chastain and Colin Farrell leading the cast, which also includes Samantha Morton, this is going to be one to watch.
An adaptation of the famed play by August Strindberg, Miss Julie looks familiar but still extremely promising in terms of its acting, visual appearance and framing. Ullmann (Sofie, Faithless) may be just the director to reintroduce this seminal play to a new audience, and Farrell and Chastain certainly seem like suitable leads for the job. Morton, too, should provide ample dramatic pathos in her key supporting role.
The trailer is filled with tantalizing glimpses at scenes and some very steamy dialogue, »

Jessica Chastain may seem like she can do it all, but there's one project it looks like she just can't squeeze in. Attached as recently as this spring to "The Secret Scripture," Cineuropa now reports that Rooney Mara is the young female lead opposite Vanessa Redgrave in the film.

Production will begin this fall. Alejandro González Iñárritu is keeping very busy. He's got "Birdman" ready to unveil at Venice, he'll be shooting "The Revenant" this fall, and he's also headed to the small screen where he'll direct the series "One Percent."

Oh, and he's engaged to be married to a fellow servant (Samantha Morton).

Toronto’s lineup, announced Tuesday, has awards pundits drooling in anticipation, but here’s some free advice: Wipe away the drool and manage your expectations.
A few years ago, the Canadian fest was the focus of many awards campaigns. But the situation is changing so quickly that Toronto is still a big factor, but it’s no longer the key factor. And that’s a good thing for everybody.
There are certainly plenty of tantalizing Toronto titles. The ones that sound (on paper) like strong awards contenders include “Black and White” (Kevin Costner and Octavia Spencer in a custody battle), “The Equalizer” (Denzel Washington, reuniting with Antoine Fuqua), “The Imitation Game” (Benedict Cumberbatch), “The Judge” (Robert Downey Jr., pictured), “Men, Women and Children” (directed by Jason Reitman), “Nightcrawler” (Jake Gyllenhaal, in Dan Gilroy’s film-directing debut), and “Theory of Everything” (Eddie Redmayne as Stephen Hawking), as well as Cannes hits like “Foxcatcher” and “Mr. Turner. »
