Cannes: Harald Zwart on Fulfilling a Childhood Dream With 'The 12th Man'

21 May 2017 2:48 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

With films like The Karate Kid and The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, Norwegian director Harald Zwart has established himself in Hollywood as a go-to-guy for mainstream genre titles.

But the 51-year-old filmmaker regularly returns to his native Scandinavia for a local-language project, including, in 2006 and 2008, the first two installments in soccer comedy franchise Long Flat Balls.

Zwart is back in Europe for his latest, The 12th Man, but the drama, marks a major departure for the director. His first period picture, the movie is also Zwart's first true-life drama: the story of Norwegian resistance hero Jan Baalsrud »

“I’m the ambassador of panda,” Chan explained, showing off the two stuffed pandas he was toting on the Oscars red carpet Sunday night. After earthquake, they get hurt and I raise them. I have two pandas in China, my own. They go wherever I go. They meet all the famous people.”

Chan wasn’t kidding: In May 2009, he visited the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding, a year after »
