A24 and DirecTV have bought domestic distribution rights to the political thriller “Backstabbing for Beginners,” starring Theo James, Ben Kingsley, and Jacqueline Bisset.

Danish director Per Fly shot the film last year in Marrakech, Morocco. James plays an idealist who lands his dream job as a program coordinator for the U.N.’s Oil-for-Food Programme and is thrown into an already fraught post-war Iraq, where government agents and power-hungry nations are circling the country’s oil reserves.

Bisset portrays a French Ngo activist overseeing food aid. Kingsley plays a seasoned diplomat and James’ character’s boss.

Fly co-wrote “Backstabbing” with Daniel Pyne (“The Manchurian Candidate”), inspired by Michael Soussan’s memoir “Backstabbing for Beginners: My Crash Course in International Diplomacy.”

The producers are Lars Knudsen, Daniel Bekerman, Malene Blenkov, and Nikolaj Vibe Michelsen. The film was financed by Houndstooth, Hoylake Capital, and the Danish Film Institute. UTA Independent Film »

The Secret Scripture Review

19 May 2017 5:50 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Lisa Giles-Keddie

The promise of a long-awaited Jim Sheridan return to his Irish roots on screen, complete with the exciting cast assembled, is enough to pique the interest of many a film fan – as the writer-director’s new drama The Secret Scripture is finally upon us. Starring Vanessa Redgrave, Rooney Mara and Eric Bana amongst others, this time-lapsing tale also promises a love triangle and a mystery in one. Though it has all the ingredients in place – being based on the moving and politically-charged 2008 novel by Sebastian Barry that was shortlisted for the Man Booker prize, it falls solely on the talents of its cast to see it through to completion.

The present-day story follows an elderly patient called Rose (Redgrave) who has been incarcerated for 50 years in a mental hospital, namely for killing her newborn. While there, Rose has documented her earlier life experiences and thoughts in the margins of a bible, »

Viggo Mortensen to star in thriller 'Unabomb'

Exclusive: Im Global fully financing and introducing to Cannes buyers.

Two-time Oscar nominee Viggo Mortensen will star in the thriller Unabomb for The Trouble With The Curve director Robert Lorenz.

Im Global is fully financing the project and lining up additional cast for a January 2018 production start.

Freeman and his unconventional team travel the country piecing together a profile of the infamous hooded suspect.

However the closer they get to narrowing down the terrorist’s identity, the more deadly and personal the attacks become. Randy Brown adapted the screenplay from the book Unabomber by Jim Freeman, Terry Turchie and Donald »

The Secret Scripture review – a mawkish slog

14 May 2017 12:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Vanessa Redgrave is brilliant as a woman instutionalised for infanticide, but otherwise Jim Sheridan’s tearjerker is a merely an endurance test

It’s a testament to the unfeasible beauty of the cast of Jim Sheridan’s tearjerker that Poldark’s Aidan Turner, present in a supporting role, looks distinctly average by comparison. But all the smouldering gorgeousness of Rooney Mara, Theo James, Jack Reynor and Eric Bana can’t dress up this mawkish slog of a movie. Adapted from the book by Sebastian Barry, the story deals with subject matter that has already been tackled with more heartbreaking humour in Philomena and more biting fury in The Magdalene Sisters. Credit must go to Vanessa Redgrave, however, playing a woman who has been institutionalised since she was in her 20s and acting everyone else off the screen.
