“The Best British Horror Film Since The Descent.” (Four Stars) – Eye For Film. Outcast, the debut feature from director Colm McCarthy (Spooks; The Tudors; Murphy’s Law), is an “intelligent, engaging, and unexpectedly creepy” (FearNet.com) contemporary supernatural horror film steeped in ancient Celtic occult, mythology and mysticism. Boasting a strong cast of established British and Irish acting talent that includes James Nesbitt (Five Minutes Of Heaven; Murphy’s Law), Karen Gillan (Doctor Who), James Cosmo (Sons Of Anarchy), Kate Dickie (Somers Town; Red Road) and Christine Tremarco (Waterloo Road), along with up-and-coming newcomers Niall Bruton and Hanna Stanbridge (Lip Service), the film has been described as “a monster movie, a murder mystery, and a Polanski-style tale of strange emotional ties that gradually unravel in several unpleasant ways” (FearNet.com) and as “a bold, ambitious first feature… a genuinely menacing piece of horror” (Twitch).

From hair to eternity: Could James Nesbitt crack Hollywood?

8 December 2010 2:51 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The Northern Irish star's transplant transfiguration – and his singing turn at the Bifas – could herald a new phase in his career

This week I went to the British Independent Film awards, and everyone I spoke to agreed that the real winner was someone not up for any awards. Instead it was James Nesbitt, who was hosting the ceremony, as he has done for some years. He was relaxed, assured and giving his new hair transplant its first public outing.

And I have to say it did look impressive – food for thought for those of us who are, ahem, follically challenged. Instead of icily denying the existence of his procedure in the traditional Hollywood manner, Nesbitt was cheerfully doing gags about it, and there couldn't be a clearer sign that he was delighted by the way it was making him look. It wasn't simply that it made him look younger, but »

Nesbitt, Tennant, Fassbender For "Hobbit"?

18 October 2010 7:33 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

James Nesbitt has been offered a role while David Tennant and Michael Fassbender are being pursued for two other roles in the upcoming "The Hobbit" reports Deadline.

The $500 million dual films finally got the green light by New Line, Warner Bros. Pictures and MGM last week with production slated to begin in February next year. Ian McKellen is set to return as Gandalf, Andy Serkis as Gollum, and though not officially yet it seems set that Martin Freeman will play Bilbo Baggins.

Irish actor Nesbitt is a staple on British television, rising to fame on such shows as "Cold Feet," "Ballykissangel," "Murphy's Law" and "Jekyll" along with films like "Match Point," "Millions," "Bloody Sunday" and "Five Minutes of Heaven".

Fassbender has found his name quickly rising in Hollywood thanks to key roles in blockbusters like "300," "Inglourious Basterds," "Centurion" and "X-Men: First Class" along with art house features like "Hunger" and »

Martin Freeman is Reportedly Set for Bilbo Baggins in The Hobbit

17 October 2010 9:53 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

With production finally officially getting the greenlight, it's time to start getting into the nitty-gritty details of this highly anticipated adaptation. While they haven't officially announced any casting on Peter Jackson's The Hobbit yet, Deadline has been saying some very interesting things about what to expect with casting. First, we know that Sir Ian McKellen and Andy Serkis will be back as Gandalf and Gollum, respectively, but who else is in? British actor Martin Freeman is said to "soon be set to play Bilbo Baggins," confirming rumors from in September that he'll be playing the lead in Peter Jackson's forthcoming two-part adaptation. Besides Freeman, McKellen, Serkis, Deadline also reports that Irish actor Jimmy Nesbitt (Bloody Sunday, Match Point, Five Minutes of Heaven, Coriolanus, "The Deep") has been offered a role, and that apparently Jackson is also pursuing Michael Fassbender (Hunger, Fish Tank, Inglourious Basterds, Centurion) and David Tennant »

Downfall Director To Visit The Dark Side Of The Moon

15 September 2010 8:16 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Promising German director Oliver Hirschbiegel has closed a deal to direct thriller The Dark Side of the Moon. According to Variety, Hirschbiegel will direct the film from a script written by David Marconi. Rather than being based on the Pink Floyd album of the same name, the project is based on the international best-seller by Swiss novelist Martin Suter in which, a successful lawyer has a life-changing experience while tripping on mushrooms. Perhaps he listened to the seminal rock album during his psychedelic journey? Hirschbiegel is best known for directing 2004's Downfall, which depicted Adolf Hitler in his final days holed up in a German bunker. Although inevitably courting controversy for its humanization of a historical monster, the film was mostly praised for breaking down a final WWII taboo so bravely and authentically. Hirschbiegel most recently directed Five Minutes of Heaven, which stars Liam Neeson as an ex-ira who serves »

Director Hirschbiegel goes to “Dark Side of the Moon”

15 September 2010 7:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Director Oliver Hirschbiegel first came to our attention with the exceptional “Downfall”, a film about Hitler’s last days.

Sadly, he then followed that up with “Invasion”, a fairly lifeless reworking of Invasion of the Body Snatchers, although that seems to have had more to do with problems with the studio than with Hirschbiegel himself.

Variety have news this morning of a new project for Hirschbiegel, namely an adaptation of The Dark Side of the Moon, a novel by Swiss author Martin Stutor.

David Marconi (Enemy of the State, Die Hard 4.0) will draft the script, all about a lawyer who starts to dabble in magic mushrooms, discovering in the process of the ensuing trip that the life he had built for himself was no longer satisfying. As a result, he begins to withdraw from society. Apparently, the novel has already been translated into eight different languages and shooting is due to start in Switzerland, »

‘Downfall’ Director Oliver Hirschbiegel to Adapt Martin Suter’s Novel ‘The Dark Side of the Moon’

14 September 2010 2:48 PM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Oliver Hirschbiegel, director of Downfall, hit a little career snag with The Invasion, but started to rebound with Five Minutes of Heaven, and may still be prepping to shoot The Angel Face, about a German mafia hitman. And now he'll reportedly also direct The Dark Side of the Moon, based not on the Pink Floyd album whose cover has adorned every dorm room in America at some point, but on the novel of the same name by Swiss author Martin Suter. (Which was admittedly titled as a gloss on the Floyd disc.) The shoot should begin in the spring, says Variety, in Switzerland, France and Germany. The script is by David Marconi, of Live Free or Die Hard and Enemy of the State, so I'm guessing for now that this is an English-language production. No casting has been announced at this point; getting some names will help clear up the »

Director Oliver Hirschbeigel Signs on to The Dark Side Of The Moon

Director Oliver Hirschbiegel (Downfall) has signed on to helm the thriller The Dark Side of the Moon based on the novel by Martin Suter.  Per Variety, “The story centers on a successful attorney whose life is turned upside down after a mind-opening mushroom trip. Realizing that all he has strived for has ceased to make sense, he begins to withdraw from society.”  David Marconi (Live Free or Die Hard) wrote the script.  Shooting is set to begin next spring Switzerland, Germany and France, and casting announcements are expected in the coming weeks.

Oliver Hirschbiegel Set to Adapt 'The Dark Side of the Moon'

14 September 2010 10:57 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Though I've failed to see his much praised chronicle of the final days of Adolf Hitler in Downfall, German director Oliver Hirschbiegel certainly impressed me with last year's thrilling drama Five Minutes of Heaven. Therefore, it's certainly exciting to hear from Variety that the filmmaker is now set to direct an adaptation of author Martin Suter's novel Die dunkle Seite des Mondes (or The Dark Side of the Moon). Writer David Marconi (Live Free or Die Hard) will pen the Pink Floyd worthy screenplay which tells the story of a successful attorney whose life is turned upside down after a mind-opening mushroom trip. His drug induced state results in a realization that all he has strived for has ceased to make sense, and thus, he begins to withdraw from society. The world is already a crazy and scary place without the addition of a mushroom drug trip, so »

Hirschbiegel To Trip On Mushrooms With ‘The Dark Side of the Moon’

14 September 2010 8:53 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Oliver Hirschbiegel, the Oscar-nominated director of Downfall has set up a new project, the thriller The Dark Side of the Moon. [Variety]

It is written by David Marconi, who penned Enemy of the State and Live Free or Die Hard. Based on the to selling novel by Martin Suter, it tells the story of “a successful attorney whose life is turned upside down after a mind-opening mushroom trip. Realizing that all he has strived for has ceased to make sense, he begins to withdraw from society.”

Hirschbiegel’s last two films haven’t quite lived up to Downfall, so I’m excited to see him take on a more interesting project. I hated The Invasion, but Five Minutes of Heaven had moments of promise. Mushroom tripping sounds like a new adventure for the talented director.

Shooting begins next spring in Switzerland, Germany and France with the cast being decided in a few weeks. »

BAFTA: 'Mad Men' wins, Simon Cowell plots world domination

7 June 2010 7:53 AM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Amongst all the MTV Movie Awards hoopla on Sunday, June 6, did you know there was another awards show happening? The 63rd annual British Academy of Film and Television Awards.

"American Idol," "Britain's Got Talent" and "X Factor" judge Simon Cowell (pictured left being cheeky with fiance Mezhgan Hussainy) was honored with a special award recognizing his development of new talent. Check out his acceptance speech below. And apparently Simon Cowell is not finished with merely conquering the U.K. and U.S.

According to London paper the Sun, Cowell wants to start taking contestants from all the "Got Talent" franchises from around the world and pitting them against each other in a global competition. The Sun cites a source close to the mogul saying, "This has been Simon's dream. It will be the biggest reality show the world's seen."

This is a British paper, so take it with a grain of salt. »
