Wamg Talks To Woman In Gold Director Simon Curtis

9 April 2015 7:37 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

After having robust box office numbers this past weekend and being praised by both audiences and critics, Woman In Gold opens in wide release this Friday, April 10. In his review, Jim Batts says, “Woman In Gold concerns a celebrated work of art, but it’s also about two inspiring lives also worthy of celebration.” Read his review here.

Woman In Gold is the remarkable true story of one woman’s journey to reclaim her heritage and seek justice for what happened to her family. Sixty years after she fled Vienna during World War II, an elderly Jewish woman, Maria Altmann (Mirren), starts her journey to retrieve family possessions seized by the Nazis, among them Klimt’s famous painting ‘Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I’. Together with her inexperienced but plucky young lawyer Randy Schoenberg (Reynolds), she embarks upon a major battle which takes them all the way to the heart of »

Directors: Colin Trevorrow Opens 'Book Of Henry,' Armando Ianucci Tackles 'David Copperfield,' And More

31 March 2015 6:02 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Until now, Daniel Espinosa has generally been known for gritty genre fare ("Snabba Cash," "Safe House," the upcoming "Child 44"), but for his next jaunt he's boldly going to outer space. The director is in talks to helm "Morningstar" for Warner Bros. The plot details of the script by David Birke ("Gacy," "13 Sins") are being kept under wraps, but it is said to have the vibe of a Cold War thriller and involve "world building." So basically, it sounds like it's an opportunity for Espinosa to expand the wheelhouse he's already in. [The Wrap] While yet another take on "David Copperfield" hardly sounds exciting, our interest is certainly piqued with Armando Ianucci ("Veep," "The Thick Of It") behind the camera. He'll helm a new take on the Charles Dickens classic with BBC Films honcho Christine Langan saying Ianucci's “sensibility usually runs very clearly through all his work. This won’t »

Interview: Director Simon Curtis Fashions the ‘Woman in Gold’

30 March 2015 4:00 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – The painting “Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer” was created by Austrian artist Gustav Klimt, and was considered Austria’s greatest artwork. The remarkable journey of the painting, stolen from its original Jewish family by the Nazis during World War II, is the basis for the new film, “Woman in Gold,” directed by Simon Curtis.

Woman in Gold” is based on the true story of Maria Altmann (portrayed in the film by Helen Mirren), a Viennese immigrant in the United States who fought the Austrian government for rightful claim to her family’s paintings in the 1990s, including the famous gold leaf portrait of her Aunt Adele. Altmann brings in an American lawyer named Randol Schoenberg (Ryan Reynolds) to act as her lawyer, and their years of litigation to make this art restitution was one of the most high profile of these cases. The film includes flashbacks of the family in Vienna during those war years, »

New Projects: Patty Hearst, ‘Barbershop 3′, and a Lego spinoff

26 March 2015 11:07 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Just days after the 39th anniversary of the conviction of Patty Hearst back on March 20, 1976, Deadline is reporting that Fox 2000 has acquired the rights to a new, untitled book being written by Jeffrey Toobin about the life and kidnapping of Hearst. The writers behind Big Eyes, Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski, will be adapting Toobin’s account.

Deadline is also speculating the role might also be in development for Jennifer Lawrence, but those talks are currently preliminary.

Hearst was 20 when she was kidnapped from her wealthy parents in the Hearst Publishing Family. She was later found to have changed her name to Tania and had joined up with her kidnappers, the Symbionese Liberation Army and eventually robbed a bank in San Francisco. Hearst’s story, based on her own novel, was first adapted into a film in 1988 by Paul Schrader, with Natasha Richardson in the role. Hearst is now 61.

Armando Iannucci Plans New David Copperfield

25 March 2015 8:32 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

As part of an event to celebrate 25 years in business, BBC Films has launched a big new slate of projects. One of the cornerstones will be The Thick Of It’s Armando Iannucci working on a new version of Charles DickensDavid Copperfield with regular collaborator Simon Blackwell.Iannucci, Blackwell and the company last worked together in 2009 to produce In The Loop, so it makes sense for the writer/producer/director to come back for his next big screen project after several years running HBO series Veep. Dickens’ book has been adapted for screens big and small many times, unspooling the author’s semi-autobiographical tale of a lad who faces a terrifying, dismissive stepfather and the death of his mother to grow up and find success in later life. So how will Iannucci bring something fresh to the story? "Armando is such a Dickens connoisseur, he’s very passionate about the writing, »

Interview: Daniel Radcliffe discusses ‘What If?’

9 February 2015 3:01 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Daniel Radcliffe has been acting since the age of 9, when he played the young David Copperfield opposite Maggie Smith in the BBC’s 1999 adaptation of the classic Dickens story. But it was in 2001, when Radcliffe was cast as the titular boy wizard of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone that he became an internationally recognised movie star. Eight feature films, adapted from the seven novels by Jk Rowling, were to follow, grossing more than $7bn at the global box office.

With roles in December Boys and My Boy Jack, Radcliffe proved he was no one-trick pony. But it was his 2007 turn on stage – in Thea Sharrock’s West End revival of Peter Shaffer’s play Equus – that established Radcliffe as a serious young actor. Then 17, Radcliffe earned rave reviews for his haunting turn as Alan Strang, a role that required him to disrobe. The actor was nominated for a »
