‘Spectre’ Star Andrew Scott Joins Rachel Weisz in ‘Denial’

9 December 2015 6:21 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

London — Andrew Scott, who starred as “C” in “Spectre,” has joined Rachel Weisz, Tom Wilkinson and Timothy Spall in the cast of “Denial.” Bleecker Street recently acquired the North American distribution rights to the film, which started to shoot in London this week.

Screenwriter David Hare (“The Reader,” “The Hours”) adapted Deborah E. Lipstadt’s book “History on Trial: My Day in Court with a Holocaust Denier,” which recounts Lipstadt’s legal battle for historical truth against David Irving, who accused her of libel when she declared him a Holocaust Denier. In the English legal system, the burden of proof is on the accused, therefore it was up to Lipstadt and her legal team to prove that the Holocaust happened.

Scott, who won a BAFTA for playing Moriarty in “Sherlock,” will play lawyer Antony Julius. The supporting cast includes Caren Pistorius (“Slow West”), Jack Lowden (“War and Peace”), Alex Jennings »

Watch the ceremony below: Claire, who looked stunning in a ruffled red tea-length dress, stood next to her TV mom as she spoke at the ceremony.

Watch Claire Danes Receive Her Walk of Fame Star

24 September 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

When fellow pros talk about Claire Danes, certain words and phrases come up again and again: professional. Dedicated. Fearless. Immensely talented.

In fact, Danes’ talent is so startling that she intimidated Marshall Herskovitz, then an executive producer of “My So-Called Life,” when he first met her.

Herskovitz says when Danes — who gets her a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Sept. 24 — auditioned for the role of Angela Chase, a stage direction called for Angela’s eyes to well up. Right on cue, Danes delivered a complete physical reaction to the scene.

“I remember sitting there going, ‘This is amazing, but she could never do that again. She’s 13 years old!’” But Danes executed exactly that reaction every time she performed the scene.

“It was like she was this alien,” Herskovitz says. “We didn’t know how to talk to her because we were in such awe of her talent. »

Why Claire Danes Was Lucky That ‘My So-Called Life’ Was Short

24 September 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

In some respects, Claire Danes is lucky that her breakthrough role, in the ABC drama “My So-Called Life,” was at least a decade ahead of its time.

Danes was in her mid-teens when the series premiered in 1994, earning critical acclaim but, by the standards of the time, relatively low ratings. The program wasn’t renewed (questions about Danes’ eagerness to continue were said to have complicated the decision), and the actress proceeded to embark on an extremely busy film career before the road circled back to television in the pay space, with Emmy-winning work in the HBO movie “Temple Grandin” and Showtime series “Homeland.”

Although “My So-Called Life” generated a mere 19 episodes, it showcased the talents that Danes — who played the thoughtful teenager Angela Chase — has displayed ever since. For starters, she was age-appropriate and disarmingly real, hardly a description that applied to many teens patrolling mid-’90s primetime. Perhaps »

New Projects: The ‘New Coke’ marketing blunder comes to film

30 April 2015 12:11 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Remember New Coke? If you do, the ’80s called and they want their jokes back. But as a reminder, in April of 1985, just over 30 years ago this week, Coca-Cola, one of the longest surviving American companies who had successfully dominated the market with a time-tested product, had decided that to stave off the rise of Pepsi in the Cola wars, they would rebrand their classic fizzy drink to New Coke. New Coke hit the shelves April 23, and though the sweeter flavor won out in blind taste tests, human psychology practically dictates that it’s not the product that’s inside the can but the label that’s outside the can that most determines a person’s liking. The product rollout was a huge blunder, and Coca-Cola eventually reverted to Coke Classic.

If you thought that sounds like it could make a fascinating documentary, or perhaps an interesting comedy, then you’re in luck. »

Hilary Swank, Tom Wilkinson Starring in Holocaust Denial Drama

27 April 2015 2:21 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In a pre-Cannes move, Hilary Swank and Tom Wilkinson have come on board “Denial,” which is based on Deborah E. Lipstadt’s book “History on Trial: My Day in Court With a Holocaust Denier.”

Participant Media developed the project with BBC Films, and they are in discussions to co-finance. Alison Thompson is handling international sales and will introduce “Denial” at Cannes.

David Hare (“The Reader”) has adapted the book. It recounts Lipstadt’s legal battle against David Irving, who accused her of libel when she declared him a Holocaust denier. Because the English legal system puts the burden of proof on the accused, Lipstadt and her legal team had to prove that the Holocaust actually happened and that Irving had manipulated data to make history vanish.

Mick Jackson (“Temple Grandin”) is directing. Producers are Gary Foster and Russ Krasnoff under their Krasnoff/Foster Entertainment banner alongside Shoebox Films.
