Amanda’s Adaptations – Bridget Jones’s Diary: Book Vs Film

12 September 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Occasionally, I do things the wrong way round and see a film before reading the book on which it’s based. In the case of delving into Bridget Jones’S Diary, I watched the film, the sequel and the entire 90s series of Pride and Prejudice over and over again long before finally purchasing the book and seeing what all the fuss was about.

From the opening page of the book, written by Helen Fielding, Bridget Jones is a brilliantly ‘real’ character unlike any I had ever read and the result is an easy, fun and adorable read. Unlike recent first person stories which have infuriating inner monologues, Bridget is so hilarious and so honest that even when she is moping you want to hug not hit her as she dwells on issues with family, work and, of course, her love life.

What a marvellous creation!

11 September 2014 7:19 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Jemima Rooper has said that she would love an As If reunion.

The Atlantis actress starred as Nicki Sutton in the Channel 4 comedy-drama, which ran for four series from 2001 to 2004.

Speaking to Digital Spy, Rooper said that she would be open for a one-off special, especially as the show was made by some of her current colleagues.

"It's by the same guys that make Atlantis," she said. "They're so busy now, I don't know.

"We kept saying wouldn't it be brilliant to do a This Life-type 10-years-on thing. I'd love to see them."

As If also starred Paul Chequer, Emily Corrie, Orlando Wells, Caroline Chikezie and Ben Waters, and centred around a group of six young adults, with each episode focusing on a different character's point of view.

Rooper added: "I know one of the actresses [Corrie] is now in the navy, so I don't know whether she would come back! »

10 September 2014 1:45 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) Hoping to repeat the success it’s had adapting Stephen King’s "Under the Dome," CBS has given a put-pilot order to a series based on the author’s 2003 short story “The Things They Left Behind.” Deadline reports the supernatural procedural will be produced by Seth Grahame-Smith and Greg Berlanti, and written by Grahame-Smith. The short story follows a man named Scott Staley who followed an inner voice and didn’t report to work at the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001. His survivor’s guilt is compounded when items belonging to his deceased co-workers begin appearing in his apartment. He soon discovers that his life’s mission is to give these items to the families of those who passed away. In addition to the series, the story has been adapted twice. The first was a short film by Pablo Macho Maysonet IV, the second a longer feature directed by Guillaume Heulard and Stéphane Valette. »

5 September 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | kidspickflicks | See recent kidspickflicks news »

Update: Pride and Prejudice and Zombies just won't die, and hopefully the new cast will give it the breath of life it needs to make the parody film work.

Venice Market to Showcase ‘Bang Gang,’ ‘Dead & Beautiful,’ ‘Sworn Virgin’

21 August 2014 6:07 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Madrid – Eva Husson’s “Bang Gang,” David Verbeek’s “Dead & Beautiful” and Laura Bispuri’s “Sworn Virgin” (pictured) will be presented at the first Venice European Gap-Financing Co-production Market, which runs August 29-30.

In its first edition, the Market looks set to bring to Venice a brace of Europe’s newest generation of producers, some with already buzzed-up or anticipated projects with sales agents attached.

10 of the 15 production companies behind the Market’s film have been up-and-running for just a decade or less.

The Market also looks set to pinpoint trends in European cinema: A diaspora in shoot locales which range, in a search for originality as much as lower costs, beyond Europe to Beijing and India; the still energetic social-issue focus of much European arthouse production as directors examine youth sexuality in an Internet age, politics as theater, the impact of immigration, social conformity and the abuse of authority. »
