Take the Lead (2006)
Variety first reported in May that Foy was the frontrunner for the gig as the precocious Swedish computer hacker.
The new installment of Sony Pictures’ Millennium franchise will commence production in January in Berlin and Stockholm, and the film will be released on Oct. 19, 2018.
The film will team Foy and director Fede Alvarez, who helmed 2016’s “Don’t Breathe” for Sony.
“I couldn’t be more thrilled about Claire taking the reins of the iconic Lisbeth Salander,” he said. “Claire is an incredible, rare talent who will inject a new and exciting life into Lisbeth. I can’t wait to bring this new story to a worldwide audience, with Claire Foy at its center.”
Foy is nominated for an Emmy for her portrayal of Queen Elizabeth in the Netflix series “The Crown,” from
Using his experience on Robot Wars, Total Wipeout and more, Dave shares some tips for anyone wanting to appear on a TV gameshow...
Have you ever watched a TV show and thought 'I’d quite like a go at that', quickly replaced by the follow-up thought 'but I’m not sure that I could?'

My name is Dave and I have now been involved with five TV productions at various levels. I have auditioned for The Weakest Link, been part of a pilot that never made it to air, and featured as a contestant on Total Wipeout, Ninja Warrior UK and Robot Wars. I suffer from low self esteem and rollercoaster depression and I have found no finer therapy for it than the character-validating world of television production.
My quest today is to try
And that long-dormant recognition is finally happening — but slowly.
An Oscar turning point came with the best picture nomination for the 1991 “Beauty and the Beast.” Since then, other toons have been nominated in the best pic, screenplay, music/song, sound and foreign-language categories. The second breakthrough will occur when there are multiple toons nominated for best picture in the same year —and when they are recognized in such categories as direction, costume design and art direction.
It will happen, and the sooner the better.
It’s never easy for any film to get Oscar attention but the battle is particularly steep for animated works for three reasons: guilt, the kiddie factor and the sheer mystery of the art.
When you’re in a “serious” discussion of great films, it’s easy to bring up “All Quiet on the Western Front
Take the lead character in Lou Howe’s debut feature, Gabriel, for example.
Gabriel tells the story of a young man, our titular hero if you will, who is at a tipping point of sorts. Following his father’s suicide, things in his life are tied into knots, leading him to take drastic measures. Steadfast in his belief that his ex-girlfriend is anxiously awaiting his return
Hilla Medalia’s modest, watchable documentary is about Pierre Dulaine, a ballroom dancer and teacher whose work with underprivileged New York schoolchildren was the inspiration for a fiction feature, Take the Lead (2006) starring Antonio Banderas as Pierre. This film is about Dulaine’s return to Jaffa, the city of his birth, and his attempt to set up a new school dance programme to get Jewish and Palestinian children to come together for the first time in their lives, and partner up for waltzes, tangoes and rumbas – a kind of Strictly Come Dancing-style kids’ version of Daniel Barenboim’s West-Eastern Divan Orchestra. It’s a nice idea, and there is something touching and important in showing how the boys and girls are – of course – so shy and giggly with each other at first.
Producer Brunson Green (The Help) reflected on the film, and the casting of Spencer, in conversation with The Hollywood Reporter.
“Mary Seacole was a dynamic, complex and charming woman, and knowing Octavia and her immense talent, there is no one better to embody this impressive and courageous historical figure.”
Having been born to a Jamaican woman and a Scottish officer from the British Army, Seacole grew up studying the healing techniques used by her mother in the boarding house she ran. Later in life, after the death
"I offer my sincere apologies," Cumberbatch said in a statement issued to People. "I make no excuse for my being an idiot and know the damage is done."
Cumberbatch might be one of the most beloved actors in Hollywood today, but that doesn't mean he's immune to occasionally sticking his foot in his mouth.

The Imitation Game star found himself in hot water on Wednesday after sitting down for an interview with PBS talk show host Tavis Smiley, where the actor talked about the perceived lack of diversity in the entertainment industry.
According to Cumberbatch, it's even more difficult for non-white actors in the United Kingdom to get work than it is for those in America.

Because of the ceremony's weird place in the awards season – after the Oscar Nominations have been announced but before the Oscars actually take place - and the Golden Globes-esque mingling of television and film stars, sometimes the show can get real weird, real quick.

Tonight’s ceremony was a rather low-key affair, but it still had some stand-out moments. Here are the best, the worst, and the most awkward moments of the night.

And it's not hard to see why the film means so much to Hawke. As the 44-year-old actor explained, "The first time I was ever nominated [in 2002 for Training Day] my son had just been born… and then today he was turning 13."
