Deadline reports that the film will see Lively as Jackie, “a single mother working two jobs and a disgraced Mma fighter who has been up against the ropes her entire life.

Cannes is one of the most prestigious film festivals in the world, but it’s also a business hub. The fest — and Cannes market — officially kick off tomorrow, May 17, but new projects are already being announced, including ones toplined by Rosamund Pike, Blake Lively, and Noomi Rapace.
Pike has signed on to star as trailblazing chemist and physicist Marie Curie in “Radioactive.” Variety broke the news. The biopic will be directed by “Persepolis” helmer Marjane Satrapi. An adaptation of Lauren Redniss’ graphic nonfiction book “Radioactive: Marie & Pierre Curie: A Tale of Love and Fallout,” the live-action project is fully financed by Studiocanal.
“Marie Curie was such a natural force of life. Everybody, everywhere she went was affected by her energy and brilliance,” said Satrapi. “This is an intense role which requires a lot of intelligence and sensibility. Rosamund is ‘the one’ to incarnate her. I understood it the second I met her.”
Pike earned an Oscar nod in 2015 for “Gone Girl.” She was most recently seen in Amma Asante’s well-reviewed interracial romance “A United Kingdom.” She’ll play war reporter Marie Colvin in an upcoming biopic directed by Matthew Heineman (“Cartel Land”).
Lively will star as a single mom and former Mma fighter in “Bruised,” Deadline reports. Faced with the threat of losing her son to the authorities, the disgraced athlete “must get back in the cage for one last chance to fight for redemption and give her son the life she always wanted.”
The source writes that “Nick Meyer’s Sierra/Affinity is launching sales on the project to foreign buyers in Cannes this week.” Linda Gottlieb (“Dirty Dancing”) will produce alongside Management 360’s Guymon Casady and Thunder Road Pictures’ Basil Iwanyk.
Lively made a major splash with last summer’s “The Shallows.” The shark thriller earned nearly $120 million and was made for just $17 million. The “Gossip Girl” alumna’s other credits include “Café Society,” “The Age of Adaline,” and “The Town.”
“Prometheus” actress Rapace will portray a counter-terrorism expert in “Close,” The Hollywood Reporter writes. The action-thriller will be directed by Vicky Jewson (“Born of War”), who also co-wrote the script.
According to THR, Rapace’s character “takes on what should be a babysitting job protecting a rich teenage heiress. But a violent attempted kidnapping forces the two to go on the run, and then they’ve got to take some lives — or lose theirs.”
“WestEnd acquired the film under its WeLove banner aimed at female audiences,” THR writes. Production is slated to kick off next month.
Rapace played Lisbeth Salander in the original Swedish-language adaptation of “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” and its sequels. She’s set to star in “Callas,” Niki Caro’s upcoming biopic about opera singer Maria Callas.

As audiences wanting their thirst for great cinema and intrigue in world issues grow we have had, in the naughties alone, Roman Polanski deliver The Pianist in 2002 and more recently László Nemes’ Son of Saul to quench our desire. Even this week, we have the release of Terry George’s The Promise which tells the story of the Armenian Genocide in the final years of the Ottoman Empire with Oscar Isaac, Charlotte LeBon and Christian Bale hitting our cinemas.

For his Oscar-nominated role in “La La Land,” Ryan Gosling spent three months learning to play the piano — so it’s somewhat of a compliment that many people ask if there was a hand double involved. “It’s all Ryan,” says writer-director Damien Chazelle, adding that there was initially going to be someone on deck just in case, but it was never needed.
New Bts video provided to Variety shows Gosling on set rehearsing or playing in several scenes, including the number “Start a Fire” with John Legend and at the wedding of his character’s sister.
It’s not the first time Gosling has taken on a special skill or gone to extremes for a film. For “The Notebook,” he spent two months soaking up the culture of in Charleston, Sc and even learned to build furniture like his character. To put on 60 pounds for “The Lovely Bones,” a film he eventually left, »

Hey girl, do you have some time to spend with Ryan Gosling?
Sure, he waltzed away with all of our hearts in La La Land — a performance that earned him a Golden Globe as well as nominations at the Screen Actors Guild Awards and the Oscars — but Gosling has been on a mission to put everyone’s boyfriends to shame for years.

Yeah, yeah, The Notebook is a national treasure, blah, blah, blah. I also love it, but you know which Nicholas Sparks movie is truly heartbreaking? A Walk to Remember. This week marks 15 years since its release, and I can still remember where I sat (right-hand side of the theater, middle row) when it destroyed me. I hadn't read the book, and I didn't know what was about to happen; I just thought I was watching a love story. I didn't know A Walk to Remember would be a godd*mn tragedy that would rip my heart out of my chest and stomp on it. I didn't know it would spark a lifelong admiration of Mandy Moore or a deep-seated love for Shane West. I just wanted to be entertained! Fifteen years later, here are the moments that I still remember . . . from A Walk to Remember. Related:A Walk to Remember: Where Are They Now? »

When she dies tragically just before the wedding, the men wind up going on the honeymoon together to reconcile their differences.

In the late 2000s, Ryan Gosling was at a curious place in his career. After rupturing the hearts of romantics everywhere with a star-making turn in The Notebook, the young actor spent the subsequent years trying on different guises—there was his award-baiting role as a crack-addled teacher in Half Nelson, a failed bid at the mainstream with Fracture, and a foray into indie quirk as a weirdo in love with a doll in Lars And The Real Girl. Then, he kind of disappeared for a few years.
Well, he disappeared from our screens. In light of his Golden Globe win for his performance in Damien Chazelle’s La La Land, Vice felt it was a good time to revisit one of Gosling’s more curious musical detours. In 2009, perhaps as a way to reevaluate his career goals, Gosling joined forces with colleague Zach Shields to form Dead Man ...
