'Trans-Siberian' Thriller Sets Out

Thus, itâ€.s appropriate that the next major project for the director will be set on a train racing across the tundra of Asia. Trans-Siberian is set on the infamous rail line as it runs from China to Moscow. Anderson, most recently known for work on HBOâ€.s â€.The Wireâ€. as well as â€.Homicide, Life on the Streetsâ€., brings his edgy, slightly seedy world to the big screen. The project, with a $15 million budget, is set to begin filming December 11 in Beijing, Russia, and Lithuania. True to Andersonâ€.s style, the »

Harrelson on 'Trans-Siberian' trip

30 November 2006 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

MADRID -- Woody Harrelson will head the international cast of Brad Anderson's contemporary crime thriller Trans-Siberian, Spanish production house Filmax announced Thursday.

British actress Samantha Morton will play Harrelson's wife, with Kate Mara and Spanish heartthrob Eduardo Noriega playing the couple opposite them and Ben Kingsley rounding out the cast as a Russian police officer hot on the trail of the two couples.

The story focuses on an American couple that travels on the famous Trans-Siberian train from Vladivostok to Moscow and encounters another couple. What seems to be a simple train journey soon turns into a thrilling chase full of deception and murder as it becomes clear that not everybody is who they seem.

A co-production between Spanish ministudio Filmax and Germany's Universum Film GmbH, Trans-Siberian is the follow-up to Anderson's Spanish production The Machinist, which earned €1.6 million at the Spanish boxoffice and more than a $1 million in the U.S. while reaping accolades at international film festivals for Christian Bale's lead performance. »

Anderson to helm redo of 'Edukators'

25 April 2006 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

NEW YORK -- Brad Anderson has been tapped to adapt and direct a remake of Hans Weingartner's political German film The Edukators. Palmer West and Jonah Smith of production outfit Thousand Words will produce the film. The story centers on three youths whose concern over global capitalism leads them from acts of protest to serious crime. The original, released domestically last summer by IFC Films, won top honors at the German Critics Film Awards and top honors at several European film festivals. "What excites me most is the way the story straddles genres," said Anderson, who most recently directed The Machinist. "On the one hand it's a suspenseful thriller, and on the other, it's a provocative and timely political debate. Yet at its heart it's really a very sly, very dark romantic comedy. In my films I've always tried to artfully 'mash up' genres. Palmer and Jonah get this. I couldn't ask for better collaborators." »

Werner Herzog is bulletproof

7 February 2006 | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

- German writer-director Werner Herzog, who’s documentary Grizzly Man was touted as the cream of the crop at the Sundance Film Festival last year, was shot during an interview with the BBC’s Mark Kermode by a sniper with an air rifle. His reaction? ‘Oh, someone is shooting at us. We must go.’ It gets better. Kermode said afterwards ‘He had a bruise the size of a snooker ball, with a hole in it. He just carried on with the interview while bleeding quietly in his boxer shorts.’ Even better is Herzog’s comment ‘It was not a significant bullet. I was not afraid.’ Sister Mary Francis!!! My knees buckle at the mere high-pitch droning sound of a freakin’ cicada on a balmy summer afternoon!!! This guy’s deflecting bullets with his Teeth!!! As you may or may not recall, The Great Herzog was also the first person at »
