22 April 2014 4:01 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Over the course of a 25 year career, actor Brendan Gleeson has made a name for himself with a number of strong supporting and leading turns in movies such as The General, Gangs of New York, Kingdom of Heaven, the Harry Potter series, and In Bruges. Many fans of the performer were interested to see what he would do next, which raised the profile of his next project. Titled The Grand Seduction, the film is directed by Don McKellar, who works from a script by Michael Dowse and Ken Scott.

Cannes: ‘Whiplash,’ ‘Cold in July’ Set to Screen at Directors’ Fortnight

22 April 2014 3:12 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Damien Chazelle’s “Whiplash” and Jim Mickle’s “Cold in July,” two well-received American dramas that world premiered at the recent Sundance Film Festival, are among the 19 features set to screen in the 46th annual Directors’ Fortnight sidebar at Cannes.

Selected by delegate general Edouard Waintrop in his third year at the helm, the Fortnight, a long-running parallel program to the official selection, will also fly the U.S. flag with the world premiere of Frederick Wiseman’s documentary “National Gallery,” a portrait of the London museum’s day-to-day operations, and a special screening of Tobe Hooper’s original “Texas Chain Saw Massacre” in a newly restored version.

As the winner of both the grand jury prize and the audience award in Sundance’s U.S. dramatic competition (where it was snapped up by Sony Classics), “Whiplash” had been widely expected to receive the Un Certain Regard berth typically reserved »

Cannes Prospects: ‘Foxcatcher,’ Inarritu’s ‘Birdman’ Likely Headed to the Croisette

26 March 2014 5:35 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A belated festival premiere for Bennett Miller’s “Foxcatcher” and a powerhouse showing for British filmmakers including Mike Leigh and Ken Loach — plus appearances by other usual suspects such as David Cronenberg, Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, Nuri Bilge Ceylan and the Dardenne brothers — are among the strong possibilities hovering over the lineup of the 67th annual Cannes Film Festival.

In recent years, festival topper Thierry Fremaux and his selection committee have tended to push their final decisions to the very last minute under a nearly impenetrable veil of secrecy, defying the intense media scrutiny and endless speculation that always swirl around the Cannes lineup at this time of year. Although anything could change between now and April 17, when the official selection is unveiled — there are still enough hotly anticipated titles in the mix to warrant some educated guesswork about what is shaping up to be a promisingly diverse slate of auteurs. »

Top 200 Most Anticipated Films for 2014: #143. John Boorman’s Queen and Country

10 February 2014 7:45 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Queen and Country

Director: John Boorman

Writer: John Boorman

Producer: John Boorman, Kieran Corrigan

U.S. Distributor: Rights Available

Cast: Tamsin Egerton, David Thewlis, Richard E. Grant, Caleb Landry Jones

The octogenarian director is still going strong, though this is his first feature since 2006’s The Tiger’s Tail. We’re thinking this historical piece sounds exactly like Boorman’s cup of tea, whose more recent dabblings in John Le Carre land or the South African set In My Country didn’t quite win raves. Instead, this recalls something like his semiautobiographical 1987 film, Hope and Glory.

Gist: An Englishman who grew up in London during World War II joins the military to fight in the Korean War. br>

Release Date: Boorman’s last stint at Cannes was in 1998 for The General, for which he won Best Director. Chances are slim that we’ll see him there again, look for it »
