Kristen Stewart Emerges as a Real Oscar Threat

8 December 2015 6:30 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Patrick Shanley

Managing Editor

Earlier this year, Kristen Stewart became the first American actress to earn a César Award (France’s Oscar), in the best supporting actress category, for her performance as a movie star’s assistant in Clouds of Sils Maria. Earlier this month, Stewart also received the best supporting actress award from the New York Film Critics Circle and from the Boston Society of Film Critics and the Boston Online Film Critics. If that weren’t enough praise for her performance, Stewart was also the runner-up for the best supporting actress award from the Los Angeles Film Critics (losing out to Alicia Vikander in Ex Machina).

Prior to this recent slew of awards, Stewart’s performance had all but fallen off the Oscar radar, as Clouds of Sils Maria was initially released far too early in the season to be considered a legitimate threat (it was released in May of 2014). However, »

Exclusive: Film starring Rhys Ifans and Sophie Kennedy Clark gets international sales deal.

UK sales outfit Starline Entertainment has boarded international sales rights to Jake Chapman’s feature The Marriage of Reason and Squalor, which Sky Arts aired as a four-part series in June.

Rhys Ifans (The Amazing Spider-Man) and Sophie Kennedy Clark (Philomena) star in the surreal romantic fiction from artist Chapman, one half of the Turner prize-nominated artistic duo, The Chapman Brothers.

Adapted from his novel of the same name by Brock Norman Brock (Bronson), Chapman’s story is a parody of Mills & Boon-style romantic fiction.

The film follows a young woman who finds herself in an Alice In Wonderland-type dream world after her wealthy surgeon fiancé gives her a mysterious tropical island as a wedding gift.

Colin Vaines (Coriolanus) produced with Andy Noble (20,000 Days on Earth) for Morass Productions.

Jake’s brother, Dinos Chapman, provided the score along with Ilan Eshkeri (Kick-Ass).

Oscar mystery: Is Alicia Vikander this year's Jessica Chastain?'

29 September 2015 3:18 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Back in 2011, he same red-haired woman seemed to be in every movie you saw. That was Jessica Chastain who by year's end had racked up six roles on her resume -- “Coriolanus,” “The Help,"  “Take Shelter,” “Texas Killing Fields.” “The Tree of Life” and “Wilde Salome,” The buzz was so hot for her that she landed a Supporting Actress Oscar nomination for “The Help." She may have lost that race to co-star Octavia Spencer, but a star was born nonetheless. This year another fresh-faced ingenue has arrived in town by the name of Alicia Vikander. -Break- Dish the Oscars with Hollywood insiders in our red-hot forums Over the past several years, this Swedish import has been slowly building her profile with small roles in “A Royal Wedding” (2012), “Anna Karenina” (2012), and “The Fifth Estate” (2013).

Colin Brown a Guest Speaker at Tiff

17 September 2015 6:35 AM, PDT | Sydney's Buzz | See recent Sydney's Buzz news »

As part of Tiff, New York-based Film Consultant Colin Brown, Managing Partner and Director of International Operations at MADSolutions, has been one of the guest speakers at the 10th anniversary edition of the International Financing Forum (Iff), the annual co-financing event that took place on September 13th.

Moderated by Matt Mueller, editor of Screen International, Colin discussed the art and science of film financing and project packaging in a staged discussion with Lianne Halfon, the celebrated producer who teamed up with actor-director John Malkovich and producer Russell Smith to create Mr. Mudd, the production company behind such films as "Ghost World," "Juno," "The Perks Of Being A Wallflower," "Labor Day" and "Young Adult." The event also has been attended by Film Analyst Alaa Karkouti, CEO of Mad Solutions.

"If cinema is in the business of manufacturing delight, then to what degree can that process be quantified? That is one of the key questions that we be examining at a time when data analytics is finally coming to film financing and project packaging in an attempt to assist - and accelerate - the process by which producers bring their ideas in front of receptive investors and industry gatekeepers," explained Colin. "We want to explore the degree to which technology really can solve some of the Catch 22 situations that producers find with regard to securing cast and financing."

Iff is a two-day event that includes one-on-one meetings, an industry panel discussion, roundtable meetings and producers' networking receptions. Selected international and Canadian producers are brought together with international sales agents, distributors, funders, agents and executive producers to do business in brokered meetings and benefit from exclusive networking opportunities. Now celebrating its 10th year, Iff has introduced hundreds of projects to the international marketplace with over 60 successfully financed to date, including Deepa Mehta's "Midnight's Children," Denis Villineuve's "Incendies," David Michôd's "Animal Kingdom," Ralph Fiennes' directorial debut "Coriolanus" and Haiffa Al-Mansour's "Wadjda," among many others.

In addition to his association with Mad, Colin is currently the Editorial Director of Slated, the pioneering film financing and networking website headquartered in Los Angeles. He also teaches at New York University, at both its renowned film school, the Tisch School of the Arts, and at the SternSchool of Business. He is a faculty board member of Nyu's Cinema Research Institute, an initiative designed to support and mentor innovative new business models for filmmaking.

During his career as a film and business journalist - most notably as the longstanding Editor-in-Chief of Screen International -Colin won numerous awards. As a film critic, he has served on the juries of numerous prestigious film festival juries including the Sundance Film Festival. »

Watch: Ballet Star Sergei Polunin Performs in Documentary ‘Dancer’ (Exclusive)

7 September 2015 3:33 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

London — Variety has been given exclusive access to a clip from Steven Cantor’s feature-length documentary “Dancer,” about the “bad boy of ballet,” Ukrainian dancer Sergei Polunin. Movie sales and finance company WestEnd will be showing a clip from the film to buyers at the Toronto Film Festival, which opens Thursday. Variety spoke to Polunin, who was described by the Daily Telegraph as the “James Dean of the ballet world,” and the film’s producer, Gabrielle Tana, who picked up a nomination for the best picture Oscar with “Philomena.”

“Dancer” has been a passion project for Tana since she first met Polunin in 2012, after he quit the Royal Ballet in London. “He was interested in acting so that’s what we were really talking about, and exploring possibilities for that, and then, together with friends like Julie Kavanagh, who wrote a piece about him in Intelligent Life magazine, I realized »

Ned Stark Returning To Game Of Thrones Season 6

10 August 2015 2:47 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

HBO

If rumours are to be believed, Ned Stark will be making a return  in Game Of Thrones season 6.

Unfortunately for Sean Bean fans, Ned Stark won’t be resurrected through the work of Melisandre or anyone else for that matter. Instead, the former ruler of the north will appear in a flashback scene.

Rumours suggest the flashback will feature a young Ned Stark sparring with a young Robert Baratheon back when they were growing up, leading to further rumours that fans could get their first glimpse of Lyanna Stark (Ned’s sister).

According to Watchers on the Wall, 13-year-old actor Sebastian Croft will fill the role after a casting call – looking for a young boy with brown hair, a narrow face, green eyes and the use of a Northern Accent – in May.

Despite his inexperience on screen, Croft boasts an impressive CV in theatre.

Ralph Fiennes To Direct Rudolf Nureyev Biopic

24 June 2015 7:04 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Ralph Fiennes has acted on both the stage and screen for more than 25 years now, but recently he seems to have developed an affinity for getting behind the camera. According to Screen Daily, Fiennes has just signed on to direct a feature drama about legendary Russian ballet dancer Rudolf Nureyev. This would be his third feature as a director after “Coriolanus” and “The Invisible Woman,” but he apparently has no plans to appear in the film.

Fiennes To Direct Rudolf Nureyev Film

23 June 2015 8:51 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Ralph Fiennes is slated to direct an as-yet-untitled film about iconic Russian ballet dancer Rudolf Nureyev for BBC Films and Pathe.

The project will not be a biopic, but will rather focus on a specific incident in the life of the volatile former Royal Ballet star who defected from the Soviet Union to the West in 1961 despite the Kgb's attempts to stop him. Nureyev died aged 53 after contracting HIV.

Acclaimed British playwright and screenwriter David Hare is penning the film while Gabrielle Tana ("Coriolanus," "The Invisible Woman") is on board to produce.

The production has secured rights to Julie Kavangh's acclaimed biography "Nureyev: The Life," and filming aims to begin late next year.

Stunning 'Macbeth' Trailer Brings Michael Fassbender To The Brink of Madness

4 June 2015 3:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

The works of William Shakespeare have long been a proving ground for actors looking to conquer the dark themes and challenging dialogue, but in recent years adapting his plays into movies has turned into a bit of a proving ground for directors as well. There has to be some sort of flair, some sort of hook that brings a fresh take to the 400-year-old material. In Coriolanus, it was Ralph Fiennes bringing the gritty war story into the 21st century. With The Tempest it was Julie Taymor turning the fantasy into a surreal visual feast. And with the upcoming Macbeath, the key for director Justin Kurzel (The Snowtown Murders) seems to be steeping world class actors in a bleak, stunning landscape that looks more like a graphic novel than a stage play. Kurzel's version stars Michael...

28 May 2015 9:14 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Jonathan Short/AP

Known by the younger generation for his role as Voldemort in the Harry Potter film series, Ralph Fiennes has been gracing our stages and our screens since the mid-eighties. He was trained in the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, achieved prominence with the Royal Shakespeare Company, and first made a name in films with his role of Amon Goeth in Steven Spielberg’s Schlindler’s List in 1993.

John Logan on 'Penny Dreadful' Season 2, Keeping Secrets from Actors and Why James Bond Shouldn't Come to TV

3 May 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

John Logan has done it all. The three-time Oscar nominee has written intimate dramas ("The Aviator," "Coriolanus"), musicals ("Sweeney Todd"), historical epics ("Gladiator," "The Last Samurai"), animated films ("Rango") and giant blockbusters ("Skyfall" and its upcoming sequel, "Spectre"). He even started off writing TV movies before transitioning to his first TV series just last year, with Showtime's horror hit "Penny Dreadful."  It's this story he likes most of all: Literary characters abound in his monster mash with equal doses of drama and scares. Logan planned out the first three seasons before committing to the series, but he's thinking ahead even further, now that he's in it. Below, Logan talks about learning to become a better showrunner, whether he thinks there's a stigma associated with horror at award shows and why James Bond belongs on film — not TV.

Actors-turned-directors: The good, the bad and the unwatchable

11 April 2015 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

This month Alan Rickman's A Little Chaos, Ryan Gosling's Lost River and Russell Crowe's The Water Diviner see these performers make the dizzying leap from actor to director. But in which of their colleagues' footsteps might they follow?

We take a look at six different categories of actor-turned-directors.

The career-changers

Too handsome to be a supporting actor, and lacking the gravitas of a major star, Ben Affleck looked to be heading towards Kilmer-ville before he released Gone Baby Gone, a dark Dennis Lehane thriller he co-wrote and directed, with brother Casey taking the lead. Follow-up The Town proved solid, but his next effort, Argo, was a surprise Best Picture winner. The fact Affleck didn't receive a Director nomination suggests he's not yet been forgiven for the likes of Gigli, but the forthcoming Lehane adaptation Live By Night should fix that.

Listen: Jessica Chastain Talks Working With Terrence Malick, Kathryn Bigelow & More In 1-Hour Conversation

7 April 2015 12:45 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Jessica Chastain seemingly became famous overnight. While she shot “Wild Salome” with Al Pacino earlier (the movie still hasn’t come out stateside, but you can read our review here), 2011 marked The Year Of Chastain. Suddenly, she had a string of movies coming to cinemas: Terrence Malick’s “The Tree Of Life,” Jeff Nichols’ “Take Shelter,” Ralph Fiennes’ directorial effort “Coriolanus,” John Madden's "The Debt," and, of course, “The Help,” which earned the actress her first Academy Award nomination. She was everywhere, and in high demand, soon garnering work and acclaim in films by Christopher Nolan, Kathryn Bigelow, John Hillcoat, J. C. Chandor, and more (later this year she has films coming out by Guillermo del Toro and Ridley Scott).
