David Yates Hears A "Voice In My Head"

22 December 2011 10:02 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

He's been linked to "Cicero," "Fables", "Maleficient", "The Stand" and most recently a possible "Doctor Who" movie. Now it seems David Yates, the director behind the last four "Harry Potter" films, has finally decided on his next project says The Press Association.

Yates is set to helm an adaptation of Emma Forrest's memoir "Your Voice In My Head" which explores the personal crisis she faced when a romance fell apart and her psychiatrist died. The story is set in New York, London and Istanbul and Forrest has adapted the screenplay herself.

"It's a small film, hard-hitting and with elements of magic realism. Compared to Potter it would cost tuppence ha'penny, and for that reason it would be incredibly liberating to make" he tells Variety.

Before taking on the Potter films Yates carved out a name for himself with award-winning British television movies like "The Girl in the Cafe" and »

7 December 2011 11:46 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"No matter how hard I've tried, I know I will never be truly one of them." The Weinstein Co. has debuted the second official Us trailer for Phyllida Lloyd's The Iron Lady, the film starring Meryl Streep as Margaret Thatcher.

Jim Broadbent co-stars as her husband Denis Thatcher, and the cast includes Anthony Head, Roger Allam and Nick Dunning. I really think this looks like it could be fantastic, give it a chance, check it out below.

To celebrate the release of The Iron Lady, in cinemas January 6th, we have teamed up with Pathé to offer you the chance to win tickets to the Premiere in London on Wednesday 4th January.

The Iron Lady tells the compelling story of Margaret Thatcher, a woman who smashed through the barriers of gender and class to be heard in a male-dominated world. The story concerns power and the price that is paid for power, and is a surprising and intimate portrait of an extraordinary and complex woman.

The film stars Academy Award-winners Meryl Streep as Lady Thatcher and Jim Broadbent as Denis Thatcher.  Their young selves are played by Alexandra Roach and Harry Lloyd.  The rest of the cast of family and friends, politicians and advisers, is made up of the very best of British acting talent, including: Olivia Colman, Anthony Head, Richard E Grant, Iain Glen, Susan Brown, »

Watch: Interesting Full UK Trailer for 'The Iron Lady' with Meryl Streep

14 November 2011 6:04 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"One's life must matter." A brand new full-length UK trailer for The Iron Lady, starring Meryl Streep as former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, has hit the web on The Daily Mail (via The Playlist), and it's definitely something to see. It starts very serious, then takes a rather amusing break with some "Our House" by Madness tossed in, and ends on a very powerful note, but it definitely looks intriguing, and of course Streep seems tremendous as Thatcher. I'm not particularly fond of this trailer, but it does make me very interested in seeing it. Jim Broadbent also stars as her husband Denis Thatcher. Take a look below! Watch the full UK trailer for Phyllida Lloyd's The Iron Lady, originally via The Daily Mail: Written by award-winning writer Abi Morgan (Sex Traffic, Brick Lane), directed by Phyllida Lloyd (Mamma Mia), The Iron Lady tells the compelling story of Margaret Thatcher, »

Tricks of the Trade: "Iron Lady" and "Shame" Scribe Abi Morgan Muses on Screenwriting

25 October 2011 10:33 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In the midst of the 55th BFI London Film Festival, writer Abi Morgan sat down with a group of festival goers to deliver a master class, offering insight into her craft. Who is Morgan, you might ask? Across theater, television and film, she is quite prolific in the UK, from plays like Laurence Olivier Theater Award nominated "Tender," to television series like 2004's "Sex Traffic" and continuing "The Hour" (which »

Abi Morgan: 'I don't look back. I am totally now'

15 October 2011 4:07 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Thanks to The Hour, playwright Abi Morgan has enjoyed an incredibly prolific year. Next up, a Thatcher biopic starring Meryl Streep, a Steve McQueen film about sex and a play about God

Abi Morgan shows up late, full of apologies, to a cafe on the corner of Exmouth Market in London's Clerkenwell. I tell her it would have been understandable if she had failed to turn up at all. For she is Mrs British Screenwriter and it is daunting even to try and imagine her workload. This has been, as she says, an "extraordinary" year in which "it is all happening at once".

She has a hasty look as she bustles in, wrapped in a black shawl – part Mediterranean peasant, part human dynamo. The minute she sits down, we both start talking at once, as you do with people who, for some reason you cannot as yet explain, you instantly like. »

Blu-Ray Review: Incredible Cast Elevates BBC’s ‘The Hour’

11 October 2011 9:28 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – “The Hour” recently finished its run on BBC America and was very quickly released on Blu-ray from BBC and Warner Bros. The quick turnaround is a brilliant move on the part of the company, striking while the iron is hot if you will. If they released “The Hour” in 6 to 9 months it wouldn’t have the same impact. Now, people talk about having watched the show to their friends and they can go out and see what the buzz is about for themselves. I’m surprised more studios don’t follow the same pattern.

Blu-Ray Rating: 3.5/5.0

So, what Is the buzz about? It’s easy to point to the show and claim it as another “Mad Men” clone but, especially in light of the canceled “The Playboy Club” and the soon-to-be canceled “Pan Am,” the accomplishments of “The Hour” seem more notable. We’re learning that cloning “Mad Men »

Big Ben and Margaret Thatcher Collide on First Poster for 'Iron Lady'

22 September 2011 3:02 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

We've already gotten a first look at Meryl Streep in The Iron Lady with the actress fully transformed into Margaret Thatcher, a woman who rose to become the first woman to lead a major Western democracy. She won three successive General Elections and served as British Prime Minister for more than eleven years, a record unmatched in the 20th century. The teaser trailer gave us a taste of her promising, and likely Oscar-worthy performance, and now we have a cool poster for the film which juxtaposes an image of Streep as Thatcher along with Big Ben and the United Kingdom's Parliament in London. See it below . Here's the teaser poster for Phyllida Lloyd's The Iron Lady via Yahoo!

Five leading TV drama writers choose their favourite peer

Ashley Pharoah on Paul Abbott

I first noticed Paul Abbott's name on the credits of Cracker in 1994. What immediately excited me was that his dark, sharp insights existed so brilliantly within a genre setting. Back then, series writers were on the bottom rungs of the television industry – the kudos tended to go to one-off dramas. Paul changed all that.

Some writers write the same thing all their lives. Paul has moved from the dark thrillers of Touching Evil to the gloomy strangeness of The Secret World of Michael Fry, to Shameless. Watching the News Corp saga unfold, it's been hard not to think of State of Play, perhaps his greatest work to date: a dark and emotional take on our newspapers and the society they feed.

His love of storytelling is ever-present, and he plies his talent in the brutal world of the ratings-obsessed mainstream, »

Harry Potter as Cinema: ‘Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix’

22 July 2011 10:50 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

In case you didn’t know, the last Harry Potter film is coming out on July 15th.  In  countdown to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, I will be doing a bi-weekly series called “Harry Potter as Cinema”, starting with the first film in the series and working my way up to the final film.  I will take an academic approach to the Harry Potter films as pieces of cinema, examining not only their quality but also what they are saying thematically.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

Written by Michael Goldenberg

Directed by David Yates

USA, UK/2007

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix might be the best and most fascinating film in the Harry Potter franchise.  Up to this point, it was by far the bleakest and and most mature film in the series while also being one of the best allegories for »

Cometh The Hour: BBC newsroom drama hits screen

15 July 2011 4:08 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

1950s series has been hailed as the UK's answer to Mad Men, but writer says it has different pace and energy

A journalist slips some cash into the policeman's hand and minutes later is rifling through a dead man's pockets. Not the latest example of Fleet Street's rot but a detail from BBC2's new newsroom drama The Hour, set in 1956 as television journalism came of age.

"It's a really interesting time for the show to be broadcasting, although obviously I wasn't aware of the situation at the time," admits Abi Morgan, writer of The Hour. "We also have phone-tapping going on in our drama – although it's very different from the kind we're hearing about now."

With the Suez crisis as a backdrop, the stylish drama weaves thriller and newsroom drama together. It follows three news journalists – played by Dominic West, Romola Garai and Ben Whishaw – as they launch a groundbreaking new programme, »

'Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix': A retrospective

10 July 2011 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

As the Harry Potter series draws to a close this month with the release of Deathly Hallows: Part 2 on July 15, we're taking a look back at the previous seven movies in the series to chart the rise of Jk Rowling's boy wizard. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix marked David Yates's debut as a Harry Potter director, and he's the only person in the series who has been honoured with a 'Best Director' award - from Empire magazine - for his role. It was this movie - the first in the series to receive an IMAX 3D release - that won him the accolade. Producer David Heyman praised Yates's track record delivering critically-acclaimed British TV dramas like State of Play and Sex Traffic, saying that he thought the director would push the film's young cast to deliver top-notch performances. Steve Kloves, who has penned the screenplays (more »

Must Watch: First Teaser Trailer for 'The Iron Lady' with Meryl Streep

7 July 2011 3:02 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"The pearls, however, are absolutely non-negotiable!" Amidst some early Oscar buzz from Deadline's Pete Hammond, the first teaser trailer for Phyllida Lloyd's The Iron Lady, starring Meryl Streep as Margaret Thatcher, has hit the web. It comes from HeyUGuys but it looks as if it were debuted during a talk show in the UK. In addition to an amusing and unforgettable introduction to Streep as Thatcher, we get a glimpse at Roger Allam and Anthony Head in the film, but not Jim Broadbent, who plays her husband Denis. It's also a great use of some of Clint Mansell's score for Moon. This teaser definitely has me intrigued, that's for sure.

New Still From The Iron Lady Features Meryl Streep & Jim Broadbent

22 April 2011 6:14 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

In what looks reminiscent of when Margaret Thatcher came to power in 1979, have a look at the latest still from The Iron Lady. (via Thompson on Hollywood and DailyMail). Looking forward to a first trailer, but considering Thatcher’s accent, will Streep sound more like Julia Child (Julie And Julia) than Great Britain’s first female prime minister? I think there’s maybe a octave or two difference between these women’s voices. What do you think?

Pathé© announced in February that principal photography has begun on The Iron Lady. Written by award-winning writer Abi Morgan (Sex Traffic, Brick Lane, White Girl), directed by Phyllida Lloyd Cbe (Mamma Mia) and produced by Damian Jones (The History Boys, Adulthood). The film will be executive produced by Francois Ivernel and Cameron McCracken for Pathé©, by Tessa Ross for Film4 and by Adam Kulick for Goldcrest.

Paul Abbott's Exile: The prodigal returns

18 April 2011 11:46 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Shameless sent him to the States – but now Paul Abbott is back with Exile. On set, Amy Raphael hears about Alzheimer's, how to get an all-star cast, and where British TV should head next

When Paul Abbott was in his early 20s, he would regularly do a 10-hour day as a scriptwriter on Coronation Street, spend 90 minutes driving home, and then visit his grandmother. She was in a nursing home and suffering from Alzheimer's; he was, by his own admission, exhausted and bored. "I used to lay different objects down in front of her and see how many sentences I could get out of her. The smell of lavender, for example, would stimulate an anecdote. I wanted to see if something like a clothes peg would force her to make sense. Otherwise our conversations were dominated by her random amnesia."

Abbott is playful, but not without compassion – this we know, »

Romola Garai interview: On a roll

12 March 2011 4:04 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

From an unflinching portrayal of the life of a Victorian prostitute in The Crimson Petal to a comically dreadful wife in the film adaptation of One Day, Romola Garai is set for stardom. But while she is uninhibited in her work, don't try asking about her private life...

Ker-flunk, ker-flunk. Romola Garai thumps across the wooden floor of the photography studio with the grace of a flat-footed Cyberman. She seems unable to control her shoes – a pair of Christian Louboutin platform heels. She looks so elegantly beautiful from the ankle up that her clod-hopping progress is particularly amusing. In the end the photographer comments.

"Yeah," says Garai and stares dispassionately at her feet. "I can't really do shoes."

Garai, it transpires, has very firm ideas about what she does and doesn't do; the way life should be lived, what's important and what she can really do without, thank you very much. »
