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. And since then he’s starred in a wide variety of films, with major pictures including the James Bond Series (starring as M), The Constant Gardener, The English Patient, and Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel. 

Fiennes’ film work has ranged from thrillers (Spider) to animated Biblical epic (The Prince Of Egypt) to camp nostalgia (The Avengers) to romantic comedy (Maid in Manhattan) to historical drama (Sunshine). Oh – and in 2011, Fiennes also made his directorial debut with his film »

Remembering the Unjustly Forgotten Tony Winner, Shaw's 'Perfect' Saint Joan and Acclaimed O'Neill Performer

'Saint Joan': Constance Cummings as the George Bernard Shaw heroine Constance Cummings on stage: George Bernard Shaw, William Shakespeare and Benn W. Levy (See previous post: "Constance Cummings: Actress Went from Harold Lloyd to Eugene O'Neill.") In the mid-1930s, Constance Cummings landed the title roles in two of husband Benn W. Levy's stage adaptations: Levy and Hubert Griffith's Young Madame Conti (1936), from Bruno Frank's original, which was presented on both sides of the Atlantic.

The Theatre Guild-produced Madame Bovary (1937), from the Gustave Flaubert novel, staged in late fall at Broadway's Broadhurst Theatre. Referring to the London production of Young Madame Conti, The Sunday Times critic James Agate wrote that the American actress had made "a roaring success out of what in other hands might so easily have been an inarticulate, »

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).

Shakespeare re-imagined: Films that transported the Bard to modern day

14 March 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

With the release of the biker gang vs. dirty cops take on “Cymbeline” this weekend, audiences were treated to another Shakespeare adaptation that transports the Bard to modern day. Plays that were written 400 years ago continue to find relevance with modern audiences and continue to fit into contemporary settings with fresh retellings. But for all the talk that Shakespeare’s plays are “timeless” and “universal,” there is still a lot in his plays that is very specific to the social and political environment of Elizabethan and Jacobean England. Some storylines and characters translate well to modern settings, while others don’t. (“Measure for Measure,” for example, may be an unpopular one for reinterpretation in part because of a central plot line dependent on a law forbidding pre-marital sex.) A film's commitment to using Shakespeare’s language in a modern setting can lead to beautiful results. Also entertaining and thought-provoking are »

Riot This Way: Almeryeda Back to Contemporizing Shakespeare

While many were quick to critique director Michael Almereyda’s Y2K update of Shakespeare’s most notable play, Hamlet, wherein 90’s indie poster boy Ethan Hawke served up the royal brooding bloodline’s infamous fate within the confines of a sleek Manhattan high rise—it happens to be his most acclaimed title to date. Since then, he’s worked on a variety of shorts and documentary projects and unveiled only two other features, book ends that are set in pre and post-Katrina New Orleans (Happy Here and Now; New Orleans Mon Amour). He’s back with a modernized adaptation of one of William Shakespeare’s later and lesser beloved plays, 2014 Venice Film Festival selected Cymbeline. While several of the Bard’s lesser works have been spun into grand cinematic spectacle (such as Julie Taymor’s beautiful Titus or, to a lesser degree, »

Cymbeline Review

10 March 2015 10:34 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As universally revered as William Shakespeare is within the English literary canon, all Michael Almereyda’s modernized Cymbeline demonstrates is that even the masters had their off-days. The centuries-old play is one of the Bard’s most contrived and convoluted works, and certainly not one that would be unanimously considered a “classic,” though simply bearing Shakespeare’s name has been enough to ensure multiple adaptations of it over the years. Almereyda’s film, disappointingly, just highlights its source material’s messier moments, never justifying its solemn tone or updated setting.

As reimagined here, Cymbeline‘s eponymous character is a drug kingpin (Ed Harris), the leader of an outlaw bike gang that rules over a burned-out town. Cymbeline’s word is law, even to the crooked cops with whom he’s embroiled in a power struggle.
