Oscar Nominee Charlotte Rampling To Star In Jane Austen Adaptation 'Sanditon'

10 February 2016 6:37 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

While Charlotte Rampling may have scuttled her Oscar chances because of her recent remarks about the diversity controversy in Hollywood (which she later clarified), the "45 Years" actress is soldiering on with a Jane Austen adaptation that is not "Sense And Sensibility," "Pride And Prejudice," "Mansfield Park," "Emma" or "Persuasion." Read More: Review: Andrew Haigh's Elegant And Empathetic '45 Years' Starring Charlotte Rampling & Tom Courtenay Screen Daily reports that Rampling will star in "Sanditon," an unfinished Austen novel that has never seen a big-screen version. Jim O’Hanlon, who directed a 2009 BBC TV version of "Emma," will be behind the camera of this Simon Reade ("Private Peaceful")-penned story that follows a young woman who summers at Sanditon, looking for love. Here's the book synopsis:  Charlotte the Heywood, captivating heroine of Sanditon, is smart, »

Oscar predictions: Will Emma Donoghue ('Room') be first woman to win for adapting her own material?

8 February 2016 4:18 PM, PST | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Hey, Emma Donoghue: Did you know you could make Oscar history by being the first woman to win Best Adapted Screenplay for adapting your own source material? Donoghue wrote the original "Room" novel that was the basis for the film that earned four Oscar nominations: Best Picture, Best Director for Lenny Abrahamson, Best Actress for Brie Larson and Best Adapted Screenplay. Of the three female solo writers that previously won this race at the Oscars (yes, sadly, there are only three), they all were rewarded for adapting somebody else's work. -Break- Subscribe to Gold Derby Breaking News Alerts & Experts’ Latest Oscar Predictions Emma Thompson prevailed in 1995 for adapting Jane Austen's novel "Sense and Sensibility," Ruth Prawer Jhabvala took home two Oscars for adapting E.M.

Theater Review: Sense & Sensibility & Speediness

4 February 2016 5:00 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

My Kindle tells me that it takes an average reader some ten hours to get through Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility. The delightful Bedlam stage version, which had a successful run in 2014 and is now being revived at the Gym at Judson, takes about two. (Saving extra time, the and in the title has been replaced by an ampersand.) Naturally, with 80 percent less eyeball engagement, there’s going to be some depth lost; Austen’s prose is hilarious and penetrating but not especially theatrical. Long stretches go by with no dialogue, and in shaping climactic moments she often lets the reader’s imagination do a lot of the work. Not so Kate Hamill, who wrote the adaptation and stars as one of the Dashwood sisters, Marianne. Like that character, her gloss on the masterpiece is sometimes too dramatic for its own good: bug-eyed where Austen merely lifts an eyebrow, »

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies review – when the undead are dead boring

4 February 2016 10:08 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Wise-cracking Elizabeth Bennet and Mr Darcy slash away at reanimated corpses in a bloody reworking of Jane Austen. But it’s not as much fun as it sounds

Early in Pride and Prejudice Mr Darcy offers his opinion of Elizabeth Bennet to Mr Bingley: “She is tolerable.” Would that I could say the same about this stupid film. Representing the lowest form of mashup, Burr Steers’ ridiculous adaptation is, to be fair, a fascinating example of an idiotic culture gone horribly wrong.

I have not read Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (the “Quirk Book classic”, as it is described in the credits) for two reasons. One, life is finite, and two, if I simply had to dig into Seth Grahame-Smith’s oeuvre, I’d choose Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters. It has to be said that the first two-thirds of Steers’ film has stretches that aren’t too bad. »

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and 10 Other Adaptations That Jane Austen Never Would Have Anticipated

2 February 2016 2:15 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

The love story of Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy has been told again and again onscreen, and each adaptation has in its own way addressed themes of class, social etiquette and romance that Jane Austen wove into the 1813 classic, Pride and Prejudice. But now Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, in theaters Feb. 5, introduces a whole new slew of themes: the undead, for example, and martial arts and lots and lots of blood and gore. The film has Cinderella star Lily James playing Elizabeth, who in this version just happens to be leading a small army of sword-toting society women in »

Berlin Film Festival to Pay Tribute to David Bowie, Alan Rickman, Ettore Scola

2 February 2016 4:01 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

London — The Berlin Film Festival will pay tribute to David Bowie, Alan Rickman and Italian director Ettore Scola by presenting special screenings in their honor.

To commemorate Bowie, the festival will show Nicolas Roeg’s “The Man Who Fell to Earth” at Friedrichstadt-Palast on Feb. 12.

David Bowie was a tremendous musician, an avant-garde artist who expressed his creativity in many disciplines,” festival director Dieter Kosslick said.

Bowie’s ties to Berlin go back to the time he spent in the city from 1976 to 1978. At the festival, he appeared in the documentaries “Lou Reed: Rock and Roll Heart,” “Scott Walker — 30 Century Man” and “Let’s Dance: Bowie Down Under,” as well as the fiction films “The Man Who Fell to Earth” and “Mr Rice’s Secret.”

To commemorate Rickman, the Berlinale will show Ang Lee’s “Sense and Sensibility,” winner of the Golden Bear at the Berlinale in 1996. The screening »

Watch 'Harry Potter' Fans Raise Their Wands in Memory of Alan Rickman

1 February 2016 9:18 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Although only one month has passed in 2016, fans have already had to say goodbye to a number of beloved Hollywood icons in such a short period of time. One of the many legends we lost last month was Harry Potter star Alan Rickman, who passed away at the age of 69 after battling cancer. Over the weekend, Harry Potter fans from around the world gathered at Universal Studios Orlando, where a new video was taken, courtesy of Inside the Magic, to pay tribute to the late actor by raising their wands.

This homage to Alan Rickman took place at A Celebration of Harry Potter 2016, an annual event that has taken place ever since the theme park opened at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter section back in 2010. Since this was the first public event that took place after the late actor's death, it's not surprising that fans turned out in droves »

Alan Rickman Remembered: Celebrating His Life and the Movies That Moved Us

23 January 2016 9:55 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

For most actors, it's in the eyes - that's where the camera lingers. Alan Rickman had an extra gift: a voice that sparked shivers of every sort. He used it to disarm Bruce Willis in Die Hard, to woo Kate Winslet in Sense and Sensibility and to rattle Daniel Radcliffe in the Harry Potter films. That rumbling bass baritone moved audiences and made Rickman one of the most respected actors of his generation. When it was silenced by cancer on Jan. 14, the only thing left to feel was heartbreak. He was 69. Born in London, the classically trained actor earned acclaim on the British stage, »

On this day in pop culture history: Trekkies gathered for the first ‘Star Trek’ convention

21 January 2016 8:30 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Fan conventions are big business now, with attendees paying hundreds of dollars for front-row seats, autographs, and photo ops with their favorite TV stars. But in 1972, a convention that gathered fans and gave them the chance to meet their TV idols was a rather new concept. It was in that year, from January 21-23, that Trekkies got together for what’s often recognized as the first true “Star Trek” convention. A convention specifically for enthusiasts of the Gene Roddenberry show had been organized before — in March 1969, at the Newark Public Library — though that event did not have any celebrity guests. It did feature a slide show of “Star Trek” aliens, skits, and a fan panel discussion. The January 1972 con was held at the Statler Hilton Hotel (now Hotel Pennsylvania) in New York, and among the celebrity guests were Roddenberry, Majel Barrett, D.C. Fontana. The legend goes that 500 people were expected to attend, »

The moment millennials fell in love with Alan Rickman

14 January 2016 11:44 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The great Alan Rickman, who died at age 39 after a short battle with cancer, has had unforgettable roles in Die Hard, Sense and Sensibility, Truly Madly Deeply, and the Harry Potter series. But I'd argue that millennials first became obsessed with him after watching one of his under-discussed roles of the late '90s.   The role is Metatron, and the movie is Dogma. I saw Dogma at age 13, and that's exactly the age when many millennials discovered the droll, sinister, but undeniably bad-ass screen presence of Alan Rickman. As one of God's spokespeople in the Catholicism-spoofing comedy, he's both downtrodden and wryly cool. You trusted him as a voice of reason in a movie that dared to throw an actual shit monster at you. Dogma is also irreverent and playfully philosophical in a way that appeals specifically to, say, teens who are learning to defy their parents' staid beliefs for the first time. »
