Indie Sales Acquires Scandi Chiller ‘Shelley’ (Exclusive)

31 January 2015 2:20 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Goteborg, Sweden– Paris-based sales outfit Indie Sales has acquired Ali Abbasi’s feature debut “Shelley,” one of the projects pitched at Goteborg’s Nordic Film Market.

Hailing from the co-producers of Jonas Alexander Arnby’s “When Animals Dream,” the well-polished genre film boasts an international cast, headlined by Cosmina Stratan, who won the actress nod at Cannes for her role in “Beyond the Hills”; Ellen Dorrit Petersen, who won Norway’s Amanda award for her part in “Blind”; as well as Peter Christoffersen from “The Bridge.”

Script was penned by Abbasi and Maren Louise Käehne, whose credits include “Borgen” and “The Bridge.” Born in Iran, Abbasi moved to Sweden to study architecture at the Royal Academy of Science in Stockholm and later attended the Danish National Film School in film directing. He’s helmed two shorts: “The Box” and “M for Markus.”

Set in an isolated villa in the middle of the forest, »

Berlin: Frances McDormand, Brit Marling, Christian Slater Join ‘The Wife’

30 January 2015 5:06 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

London — Frances McDormand, Logan Lerman, Brit Marling, Christian Slater and Jonathan Pryce have joined the cast of “The Wife,” which stars Glenn Close. Embankment will commence international sales at the European Film Market in Berlin.

Pic is produced by Anonymous Content and Meta Film. CAA and Wme Global are co-representing the U.S sale.

Close stars as the cool, elegant Joan Castleman, a flawlessly gracious wife who gladly gave up her writing ambitions to play the role of helpmate to her husband, the philandering literary giant Joe Castleman (Pryce). On the eve of Joe’s Nobel Prize for Literature Joan decides to leave him.

Slater is the determined, unauthorized biographer who unwittingly becomes the catalyst that prompts Joan’s decision. A startling secret at the heart of Joan and Joe’s relationship is laid bare in a “poignant, funny and emotional journey about the conflicts of love and ambition.”

Marling will play the younger Joan, »

Stienette Bosklopper reveals screenwriting plans

22 January 2015 4:06 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Veteran Dutch producer Stienette Bosklopper, owner and MD of Circe Film, is turning screenwriter and has written two projects already in advanced development.

Bosklopper, whose credits include Wolfsbergen and Brownian Movement, will be at this week’s Iffr CineMart in Rotterdam in a dual capacity - as screenwriter and producer of Nanouk Leopold’s new feature, Cobain.

The €1.6m film, which has already received backing from the Netherlands Film Fund, is being coproduced with Waterland Film.

“It’s part of a personal development you have at a certain stage in your career,” the producer says of her foray into screenwriting.

“I had been working with a lot of writers and directors. Somehow, there was an urge to contribute on a different level. To my own amazement, it is going very well. It comes quite naturally and I have the feeling that I will be continuing doing this.”

Cobain is the story of a teenage boy with a »

Best of the Year: Nathaniel's Top Ten

4 January 2015 9:07 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Previously we looked at ten runners-up -- practically an alternate top ten if you will the year was so good. Now on to the list you've been waiting for as our own awardage begins. 

The years best films marched in the streets in London and Alabama, cruised Scotland with nefarious intent, uncovered skeletons in Poland, and jogged around DC. They performed on the stages of Manhattan while also house hunting there; neither activity is for the faint of heart. Only two of them sprang from books though another cast its biggest spell while holding one. Two taught us about history in ways that felt absolutely relevant and useful to how we live now and one let us watch 12 years of it unfold. The thing that unites all ten is the imagination, fine judgement (when to employ a light touch and when to hit hard) and technical prowess of the filmmakers and actors, »
