Frances McDormand (Fargo), Logan Lerman (Fury), Brit Marling (Arbitrage), Christian Slater (Nymphomaniac) and Jonathan Pryce (Woman in Gold) have joined Glenn Close in Us-Swedish drama The Wife.

Ahead of the Efm, Tim Haslam and Hugo Grumbar’s Embankment Films has boarded the intriguing package produced by Anonymous Content and Sweden’s Meta Film.

CAA and Wme Global are co-representing the U.S sale.

Close will star as the elegant Joan Castleman, a flawlessly gracious wife who gladly gave up her writing ambitions to play the role of helpmate to her husband, the philandering literary giant Joe Castleman (Jonathan Pryce). On the eve of Joe’s Nobel Prize for Literature Joan decides to leave him.  

Slater is the determined, unauthorized biographer who unwittingly becomes the catalyst that prompts Joan’s decision. 

Marling will play the younger Joan, a product of her class and time, and McDormand »

"The Lego Movie" took home the Award for Outstanding Producer of Animated Theatrical Motion Pictures for producer Dan Lin while "Life Itself" won the Award for Outstanding Producer of Documentary Theatrical Motion Pictures for producers Garrett Basch, Steve James, and Zak Piper.

Meanwhile, Alejandro G. Iñárritu, John Lesher, and James W. Skotchdopole took the Oscar glitter away from Richard Linklater's "Boyhood" when "Birdman" was awarded the Darryl F. Zanuck Award for Outstanding Producer of Theatrical Motion Pictures.

The Oscars just got interesting! Will "Boyhood" triumph over "Birdman" at the Academy Awards?

In TV land, NBC was the big winner of the evening with two of their shows taking home trophies for Competition Television ("The Voice") and Live Entertainment & Talk Television ("The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon »

SAG: William H. Macy on Finally getting to give a speech

25 January 2015 8:38 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

William H. Macy didn't expect to win a SAG Award for Best Male Actor in a Comedy Series, but he picked up a trophy for his work on Showtime's "Shameless."  The venerable actor and onetime "Fargo" Oscar nominee opened up in the SAG press room about a topic he mentioned in his victory speech: years of writing speeches and never getting to give them. Macy also discussed the craziness of his show and the origins of Flicka, his nickname for wife Felicity Huffman.   »

SAG Awards: Newcomers Reign in TV Races

25 January 2015 7:51 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

It was a brave new world for television contenders at Sunday’s Screen Actors Guild Awards.

Year after year, the actors union has favored the familiar, crowning plenty of repeat winners. Perhaps reflecting the changes in the ever-expanding television landscape, this time out SAG voters bestowed their love on newcomers.

Three of the four TV acting winners at the 21st annual Screen Actors Guild Awards were first-time nominees in their category: Viola Davis, Uzo Aduba (pictured) and William H. Macy.

Orange was the color of the night, as Netflix’s hit comedy “Orange Is the New Black” claimed two top prizes, notably for comedy ensemble, dethroning longtime champ “Modern Family.” Netflix also claimed another win with Kevin Spacey’s trophy for “House of Cards.”

Modern Family” has won the comedy ensemble category for four years straight. The ABC sitcom has been nommed every year that it has been eligible, losing »

2015 Screen Actors Guild Award Winners: 'Birdman' Wins Best Ensemble, but is It the Oscar Frontrunnerc

25 January 2015 6:20 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The 2015 Screen Actors Guild Awards were announced tonight and if you're like me, the Best Ensemble win for Birdman makes it your new frontrunner for Oscar's Best Picture as it has now won not only with the Producers Guild, but with the Screen Actors Guild. Of course, there is one oddity to this win, while it took home ensemble, Michael Keaton lost Best Actor to Eddie Redmayne (The Theory of Everything), Emma Stone lost Best Supporting Actress to Patricia Arquette (Boyhood) and Edward Norton lost Best Supporting Actor to J.K. Simmons (Whiplash). Apparently Birdman is all about the sum of its parts... I can accept that. The only category I haven't mentioned was Julianne Moore winning Best Actress for Still Alice and perhaps I don't mention that because it's quite simply a joke. Put that performance alongside the likes of Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl) and can you really tell me »

‘Birdman’ Wins Best Cast in a Movie at SAG Awards

25 January 2015 3:53 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Solidifying its status as an awards season contender, “Birdman” nabbed the top prize at the 21st annual Screen Actors Guild awards, winning best cast in a film.

“Actors love this film,” admitted “Birdman” star Michael Keaton backstage at the Shrine Auditorium.

The story of actors putting on a Broadway play won the ensemble award over “Boyhood,” “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” “The Imitation Game” and “The Theory of Everything.”

It was a big weekend for “Birdman,” which moved into front-runner status with its SAG win, combined with the Darryl F. Zanuck award for best picture from the Producers Guild of America on Saturday night.

The winner of the SAG ensemble trophy has matched the Oscar best picture winner just nine times in 19 years, and last year “American Hustle” won the SAG cast award and was shut out at the Oscars. “Argo” won both awards two years ago.

SAG Awards 2015 Winners: The Full List

25 January 2015 1:55 PM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It's time for the 21st annual Screen Actors Guild Awards -- the only awards show to exclusively honor TV and film performers. 'Cause who else is going to give these poor unrecognized souls the attention they deserve?

Some big names were up for major awards Sunday night (January 25), from Benedict Cumberbatch and Mark Ruffalo - who were nominated in both TV and film categories, not that they showed up - to Jennifer Aniston, Emma Stone, Meryl Streep, and the casts of "Game of Thrones," "Downton Abbey," "Homeland," etc. It's kind of like the Golden Globes, if the Golden Globes just focused on the pretty people and left out the lesser-known and potentially less attractive producers/directors/writers.

SAG Awards 2015 aired live from 8 to 10 p.m. Et on TBS and TNT. Unlike most awards shows, it actually ended slightly early. (Is that what happens when no one hosts?) Here is the full list of winners, »

‘Birdman’ Wins Top Producers Guild Award

24 January 2015 10:22 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Oscar-snubbed “Life Itself” and “The Lego Movie” win documentary and animation awards

Birdman” was named the best-produced feature of 2014 at the Producers Guild Awards on Saturday night, giving the daring Alejandro Iñárritu film new life in the Oscar race for Best Picture.

“Boyhood” was considered the most likely PGA winner and the Oscar leader, but the critical favorite now finds itself in the same spot “The Social Network” was in four years ago. That film swept the critics’ awards and the Golden Globes, but then lost the PGA to “The King’s Speech,” which rode a string of guild wins to victory at the Oscars. »
