Floria Sigismondi will once again make her way from the music scene to the big screen. Deadline has just announced that “The Runaways” helmer is set to direct “The Turning,” a new film from Amblin Entertainment.

Written by brothers Chad and Carey Hayes (“The Conjuring” franchise), “The Turning” is a very loose adaptation of Henry James’ “The Turn of the Screw.” The 1898 ghost novella follows a 19th century governess who is haunted by the predecessors of her current workplace.

Sigismondi made her feature directorial debut with “The Runaways” starring Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning. This biographical film is about an all-girl 1970s rock band and explores the relationship between Joan Jett (Stewart) and Cherie Currie (Fanning). It premiered at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival.

The director’s other credits are predominantly music videos. She has worked with everyone from Rihanna to David Bowie. Sigismondi recently helmed two episodes of “The Handmaid’s Tale” and the season finale of “American Gods.”

“The Turning” will begin production sometime next year.

Floria Sigismondi to Direct Adaptation of Henry James’ “The Turn of the Screw” was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

Dakota Fanning's Guide to Growing Up in Hollywood: On Acting, Aging and Leaving Child Stardom Behind

Dakota Fanning's Guide to Growing Up in Hollywood: On Acting, Aging and Leaving Child Stardom Behind
"I didn't stay quiet, I don't think," Dakota Fanning considers, before deadpanning far more certainly, "I don't think I've ever stayed quiet in my entire life." I've just asked Fanning, 23, if she went method for her latest film, the grueling Western drama, Brimstone. Not that it's particularly easy to picture the actress being the type of nightmare that mails her co-stars used condoms or refuses to break character while texting or whatever staying in character might inspire here, with Fanning playing an old-timey prostitute on the run from retribution. (Stabbing Guy Pearce because he took the last bag of Doritos at craft services?) More so, the question was whether the challenge of playing mute (her character's tongue is cut out as a result of a series of truly unfortunate events that play out in the film—out now) necessitated that Fanning remain silent on set. "Oh, no! No way!" she exclaims, letting out a high-pitched

Lars von Trier has never shied away from controversy. Now, the Danish writer/director has revealed that his upcoming serial-killer thriller, “The House That Jack Built,” is partly inspired by none other than Donald Trump.

Together Again: Jeff Nichols gives a character actor soul in his films with Michael Shannon

With Together Again, Jesse Hassenger looks at actors and directors who have worked together on at least three films, analyzing the nature of their collaborations.

It must be the eyes. There’s wildness in them. I’d seen Michael Shannon in about half a dozen movies before I saw him in World Trade Center, where he plays a real-life Marine who saw the wreckage in Manhattan on 9/11, got in his car, and drove down to the World Trade Center site to pitch in. This was a heroic action, yet in the movie there’s something unnerving about this man, and the main thing is that he’s played by Michael Shannon, a character actor who specializes in wild-eyed zeal, whether he’s saving cops in World Trade Center, attempting to work as a punk-rock Svengali in The Runaways, hunting down Superman in Man Of Steel, or warning his ...

Momentum Pictures Acquires Guy Pearce-led film Brimstone; Release Set for March

Confession: Guy Pearce can, in my opinion, do absolutely no wrong. Even in films that I don’t find to be much fun (i.e.- Lockout), Pearce always gives 200% and let’s be honest, just based on L.A. Confidential, the Aussie actor should have a lifetime pass. News that I’m quite excited about, is the newly announced acquisition of the western/thriller Brimstone by Momentum Pictures.

Starring Pearce (Breathe In, Lawless), Dakota Fanning (Man On Fire, The Runaways), Kit Harington (Jon Snow himself people…), Carice van Houten (“Game of Thrones”) and Emilia Jones (Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides), the film all set for a theatrical and VOD release in March of 2017 and seriously guys…think of The Proposition and LawlessGuy Pearce is the man.

Dakota Fanning: ‘There was an expectation – to fail, to succeed’

Dakota Fanning: ‘There was an expectation – to fail, to succeed’
As a child actor she worked with Sean Penn and Tom Cruise – and people kept asking when she’d go off the rails. Not going to happen, she says

Dakota Fanning, who has been working for 16 years and is still only 22, remembers the birthdays of her childhood not by the parties or the presents, but according to the movie sets she was on at the time. The year she turned seven, for example, she was filming I Am Sam, her first movie, in which she appeared with Sean Penn, whom her mother assured her was a “great dramatic actor”. (“I was like, Ok!”). At 10, she was in War Of The Worlds with Tom Cruise. And at 15 she was in her first semi-adult role in The Runaways, a biopic of the 1970s band of the same name and memorable, to Fanning, because it fell within those years when everyone kept asking

Rooney Mara Takes The Lead In Musical Drama Vox Lux

Brady Corbet certainly has the wind in his sails when it comes to moving from acting to writing and directing. In addition to starring in projects such as Clouds Of Sils Maria and Olive Kitteridge, the filmmaker has begun to create material – recently making his feature length directorial debut with The Childhood Of A Leader, which he also co-wrote. That film has swept through the 2016 festival circuit – collecting accolades and nominations as it went – generating a momentum that Corbet has ploughed straight into his next project: Vox Lux.

Taking what seems to be a similar, sweeping approach to time as his debut film does, Vox Lux begins in 1999 and tracks the passage of a 15 year period. The plot centers on a young musical artist named Celeste, whose gaze provides the lens through which we view significant historical events, as she unexpectedly evolves into a superstar. Rooney Mara is now confirmed

Rihanna's "Star Trek" IMAX Music Video

Several weeks ahead of the release of "Star Trek Beyond," Paramount Pictures has released the music video to Rihanna's tie-in single "Sledgehammer" - the first music video shot entirely with IMAX cameras (in this case the Alexa IMAX camera which was also used during the airport fight in "Captain America: Civil War").

Floria Sigismondi ("The Runaways") helms the video which sees the singer dressed in stylised make-up in a desert location - in fact the same place they shot portions of "Star Trek V" - dancing around as things ultimately turn cosmic and outright weird (in a good way). The clip also boasts the ship swarm we've seen in the trailers for the feature, along with the U.S.S. Enterprise from the Abrams films.

What's interesting here is that the song itself is quite strong, a decidedly better piece than other tie-in film songs of late such as
