Sienna Miller Finds Love And Friendship

10 February 2014 6:31 PM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Whit Stillman has a new movie, Love And Friendship, afoot and it now involves the combined talents of Sienna Miller and Chloë Sevigny. The two actresses have signed up for the latest slice of Stillmania, a comedy that springboards off the director’s in-progress (and presumably four-foot wide) novel Love & Friendship: An Adaptation Of Jane Austen’s Unfinished Novella Concerning The Beautiful Lady Susan Vernon, Her Loves And Friendships, And The Strange Antagonism Of The DeCourcy Family.With Metropolitan, Barcelona and the recent Damsels In Distress, Stillman has carved a niche as a funny, wry chronicler of what he calls the “urban haute bourgeoisie”. This one will mark a departure from those preppy playgrounds – at least in setting and period, if not tone.Miller plays the lead character, Lady Susan Vernon. In Austen’s book, she’s a widow searching for a husband for herself and one for her daughter. »

Whit Stillman Writing/Directing ‘Cosmopolitan’ For Amazon Studios; Moving His Jane Austen Movie Idea Into Novel Form

29 January 2014 2:54 PM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Is Amazon Studios the next Netflix? Not quite, but it’s not for lack of trying and some have already called them a Hollywood threat. Lots of stuff is cooking over there: the John Goodman-starring political comedy “Alpha House,” Nicolas Winding Refn’s “Barbarella;” even the “Zombieland” series may potentially land there. “World War Z” director Marc Forster’s “Hand Of God,” starring Ron Perlman, is also nearing an official pilot green light. One more joins the fray, this one from “Barcelona” and “The Last Days Of Disco” filmmaker Whit Stillman. Titled “Cosmopolitan” (Stillman’s first film was “Metropolitan,” for those keeping score), Stillman will write, direct and executive produce, and the show will chronicle the loves and adventures of a group of young expatriates in Paris (Stillman spent plenty of time there during his “in the wilderness” period after going more than ten years between films; ‘Disco’ in »
