Christine Langan exit: industry reacts

20 July 2016 6:36 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Screen canvasses industry opinion on Langan’s tenure and the prospects for one of the UK’s cornerstone funders.

There have been warm tributes to Christine Langan as news broke yesterday of her impending departure from BBC Films to join UK production outfit Baby Cow.

Attention is also now beginning to turn to who is likely to be her successor and what plans the BBC has for its film arm in the long run.

“Christine leaves BBC Films in good shape,” commented producer Stewart Mackinnon of Headline Pictures, who worked with the broadcaster’s film arm on titles including Quartet and The Invisible Woman, among other projects.

Pride producer David Livingstone noted Langan’s “incisiveness.”

“The thing I remember particularly about Christine is her giving very good notes about the final editing of the film (Pride). She was very clear and very precise, and with a light hand on the tiller,” Livingstone said.

U.K. Film, TV Industry Players React to ‘Seismic’ Brexit Decision

24 June 2016 10:37 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

British voters’ stunning decision to turn their backs on the European Union has left many of the country’s leading TV and film players reeling. Here, some of them reflect on the new, uncertain situation Britain now finds itself in and how it might affect the industry.

Jane Tranter’s production company Bad Wolf has a first-look deal with HBO, and is producing BBC-New Line TV series “His Dark Materials.” Previously, as a BBC senior executive, her credits included “Doctor Who” and “Da Vinci’s Demons”:

“The news is bleak. Like many I am embarrassed and ashamed of how our politicians, on all sides and all parties, have handled this referendum.

“From a practical and cultural point of view, the U.K. television industry is today steeling itself to working with Europe from a position of isolation and unknown financial future and regulation. From a creative point of view, I »

Andrea Riseborough Compares ‘Bloodline’ Character to ‘Star Wars’ Death Star

1 June 2016 2:25 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

British actress Andrea Riseborough is such a chameleon, it’s not a surprise to hear her say she’s never used her own accent in any of her roles. “I have a strong northern accent, I’m from a country where we make a lot of films about posh British people,” she notes. “I was a little worried that I wouldn’t be respected or everything would go away if people knew who I truly was, someone from a working class place in Britain.”

Those who see Riseborough in Season 2 of “Bloodline,” now streaming on Netflix, might not even recognize the actress who has donned various accents and hair colors in such films as “Birdman,” “Oblivion” and “Made in Dagenham.” She plays Evangeline, the mother of Nolan (Owen Teague), the son sired by the now-deceased Danny Rayburn (Ben Mendelsohn).
