First Look: Ewan McGregor As Jesus & The Cast Of Sundance Drama ‘Last Days In The Desert’

18 December 2014 7:05 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

One of the more intriguing movies of the upcoming 2015 Sundance Film Festival features Ewan McGregor as Jesus… and Satan. It’s called “Last Days In The Desert,” and it’s directed by eclectic filmmaker Rodrigo Garcia who cut his teeth working in prestige television (“The Sopranos,” “Six Feet Under,” “In Treatment”) and then went on to show diversity with the thriller “Passengers,” and dramas like “Mother and Child,” and “Albert Nobbs.” Doubly intriguing, the picture was also shot by Emmanuel Lubezki, the Oscar-winning cinematographer of “Gravity” and the about-to-be-awarded Dp of “Birdman,” so we’ll assume he has another visual treat up his sleeve. Here’s the official synopsis. Ewan McGregor is Jesus — and the Devil — in an imagined chapter from his 40 days of fasting and praying in the desert. On his way out of the wilderness, Jesus struggles with the Devil over the fate of a family in crisis, »

What's Up With Ewan McGregor, From 'Son of a Gun' to Sundance as Jesus? (Clips)

16 December 2014 4:10 PM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

The Scottish thesp will soon be seen in Sundance epic "Last Days in the Desert," a chronicle of Jesus' 40 days of fasting starring McGregor as both Christ and the Devil. "Last Days" is directed by Rodrigo Garcia, helmer of the handsomely made "Albert Nobbs" and earlier, more intimate passion projects "Nine Lives" and "Mother and Child," which tangled the lives of women in interconnected vignettes. One of the most hotly anticipated Sundance 2015 titles, "Last Days" was shot in five weeks by Emmanuel Lubezki, who reunites here with "The Tree of Life"'s Tye Sheridan, costarring alongside McGregor and Ciaran Hinds. In the above image, Ewan McGregor channels the ragged and starving Jesus, but it's hard not to think of Obi-Wan Kenobi, the cloaked Jedi Master of "The Phantom Menace." Whether Scorsese's "The Last Temptation of Christ" with Willem Dafoe or Gibson's "Passion of the Christ" with »

Ewan McGregor Is Jesus in 'Last Days in the Desert' Photo

11 December 2014 7:30 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Sundance has quite the line-up planned for this year, which will include the new biblical drama Last Days in the Desert. Ewan McGregor stars as Jesus Christ in the film. Written and directed by Rodrigo Garc&#237a, we have a first look photo as the movie prepares for its premiere this January in Utah.

Seen here as Jesus, Ewan McGregor will also be playing the devil. Last Days in the Desert serves as an 'imagined' chapter from Christ's forty days of fasting in the desert. Heading into the wilderness, Jesus must struggle with the fate of a family in crisis as well as Satan himself. This sets him up for a quite challenging task.

Tye Sheridan, Ciar&#225n Hinds and Ayelet Zurer co-star in Last Days in the Desert. Rodrigo Garc&#237a is known for his films Albert Nobbs, Mother and Child and Delirium. The movie will premiere Sunday, January »

First Look: Ewan McGregor is Jesus Christ in Sundance's 'Last Days in the Desert'

10 December 2014 3:54 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Ewan McGregor is darkness and light. The two-time Golden Globe nominee is playing the dual role of Jesus and the Devil in the forthcoming Sundance drama "Last Days in the Desert" - and the first photo of him as the former has arrived. It's pretty much what you'd expect - long brown hair, tattered robes, beard - but the film takes off from a different perspective than we've seen: namely, an "imagined chapter from his forty days of fasting and praying in the desert. On his way out of the wilderness, Jesus struggles with the Devil over the fate of a family in crisis, setting for himself a dramatic test." Directed by Rodrigo Garcia ("Albert Nobbs," "Passengers") and also starring Ciarán Hinds, Ayelet Zurer and Tye Sheridan, "Last Days in the Desert" is set to debut as part of Sundance's Premieres lineup. Check out the photo below. The 2015 Sundance Film Festival runs from Jan. »

Last Day In The Desert also stars Tye Sheridan, Ciarán Hinds, and Ayelet Zurer. The film’s cinematographer is Oscar winner Emmanuel Lubezki (Gravity).

McGregor also has another film premiering that same weekend – Lionsgate’s Mortdecai, co-starring Johnny Depp and Gwyneth Paltrow, which opens on January 23, 2015.

Director Rodrigo Garcia’s (Albert Nobbs) new film Last Days In The Desert will be playing the Sundance festival next month and we have our first look at Ewan McGregor as Jesus. The small indie film actually has McGregor in dual roles; his characters are described as a holy man and a demon or Jesus and the Devil if you want to get literal. The movie is an imagined chapter from his 40 days of fasting and praying in the desert. Here's the official synopsis: Ewan McGregor »

Ewan McGregor Is The Devil And Jesus In First Image From Last Days In The Desert

9 December 2014 1:45 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Since it was announced back in February that Ewan McGregor had joined Last Days In The Desert, talk of the film dried up. Until yesterday, that is. With the cinematic calendar’s most prolific film festival, Sundance, set to start next month, a list of ficks slated to premiere hit the web. Included in that list was of course, Last Days, which has now debuted its first image. Courtesy of EW, we can now reveal a first look at Ewan McGregor as Jesus… and the Devil!

As first glimpses go, it’s a simple shot of McGregor looking dusty and disheveled, which he probably should be considering where he’s been. In this “imagined chapter” from Christ’s 40 days in the desert, the Scottish thesp plays both Jesus and Satan. This harks back to our first report on the project which outlined the story as “a holy man and a »

When the trades announced last February that Albert Nobbs director Rodrigo García was making a small indie starring Ewan McGregor in dual roles, his characters were described as a "holy man and a demon." But unveiled in yesterday's announcement of Premieres for the 2015 Sundance Film Festival were the more specific details for Last Days in the Desert that said holy man and demon are actually Jesus and the Devil, "in an imagined chapter from his 40 days of fasting and praying in the desert." In the film, Yeshua—Hebrew for Jesus—is tempted by evil while alone in the wilderness. "You »

Sundance: Premieres, Doc Premieres

8 December 2014 1:00 PM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Festival top brass have revealed a high-profile roster of out-of-competition Premieres and Documentary Premieres entries featuring many returning heroes, as well as a new Special Events section and panel participants including George Lucas.

Justin Kelly’s I Am Michael is likely to become a major talking point and stars James Franco and Zachary Quinto in the true tale of activist and Young Gay America co-founder Michael Glatze, who renounced his homosexuality and became a Christian pastor. The Exchange handles international rights.

James Ponsoldt’s David Foster Wallace film End Of The Tour (pictured, photo by Jakob Ihre) starring Jesse Eisenberg and Jason Segel makes the cut — Fortitude International is the international sales agent — as does the latest from the newly prolific Noah Baumbach, whose Mistress America stars his Frances Ha and Greenberg muse Greta Gerwig and arrives three months after the Toronto premiere of While We’re Young.

In the War Zone: Trailer for Guantanamo-Set Drama Starring Stewart, Maadi

8 August 2014 4:56 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Camp X-Ray’ trailer 2014: Kristen Stewart and Payman Maadi in Guantanamo’s ‘war zone’ (photo: Kristen Stewart in ‘Camp X-Ray’) The official Camp X-Ray trailer is out. "Make no mistake about it. This is a war zone," a male voice tells the recruits (and us) at the start of the movie trailer, set in Guantanamo’s temporary detention center Camp X-Ray. A "war zone" in more ways than one; he’s referring not only to the physical danger faced by the U.S. military guards (and their Muslim prisoners — or rather, "detainees"), but also, and more ominously, to a war of minds and mindsets between the two groups, who may have more in common with each other than is apparent on the surface. Private Amy Cole aka Kristen Stewart is forewarned: "You can talk to ‘em, but do not let these guys learn anything about you. Do not let them get inside your head. »

Snow White Prequel (Stupidly) Drops Snow White, Gets New Title and Release Date

31 July 2014 4:00 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

‘The Huntsman’ release date announced as ‘Snow White and the Huntsman 2′ drops Snow White aka Kristen Stewart (photo: Chris Hemsworth in ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’) Universal’s Snow White and the Huntsman 2 has a new title, as the "sequel" to Rupert Sanders’ 2012 fantasy adventure Snow White and the Huntsman is scheduled to arrive on screens in 2016 without Snow White — played by Kristen Stewart as an armor-clad Joan of Arc-ish heroine (minus the burning at the stake) in the original film. So, Snow White and the Huntsman 2 has now been renamed The Huntsman. Now, does it sound idiotic to drop Snow White from what was purportedly going to be a Snow White movie sequel? Well, it does — and that’s because it is. So, instead of calling Snow White and the Huntsman 2, or rather, The Huntsman, a "sequel," the film is now being referred to as a "spin-off" — or, to be more precise, »

How Roadside Attractions Made Hit of 'Most Wanted Man,' Starring Philip Seymour Hoffman, the Web is Changing the Movie Business

30 July 2014 11:37 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Roadside Attractions co-presidents Howard Cohen and Eric d'Arbeloff are running their specialty label--co-owned by frequent distribution partner Lionsgate--with taste and smarts. They have a handle on what will work in the the specialty theatrical market, when to go day-and-date with VOD, and when to chase an Oscar campaign that can cost more than it's worth. (They did well with Oscar nominations for "Winter's Bone" and Jennifer Lawrence, "Biutiful" and Javier Bardem, and "Albert Nobbs" and Glenn Close, among others.) The Oscar question came up when their most recent release, Anton Corbijn's Sundance entry "A Most Wanted Man," based on the John Le Carré novel and starring Philip Seymour Hoffman in his last leading role, opened strong last weekend. Cohen came by Sneak Previews to talk about how they released the film, Hoffman, and the indies' future. He's bullish. Anne Thompson: "A Most Wanted Man" might have been a »

The Wait’s Riel Roch Decter & It Felt Like Love’s Laura Wagner Summoned to Sundance’s Creative Producing Summit

28 July 2014 8:40 PM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

As we know, a passage through the many Sundance labs doesn’t guarantee a gold ticket for Park City in January, but undoubtably its certainly a professional nudge in the right direction. A total of nine films (5 fiction) will be heading to the Labs (July 28 – August 1) with this year’s Creative Advisors including folk we’ve mentioned on several occasion here in Paul Mezey (Beasts of the Southern Wild), Pam Koffler (Boys Don’t Cry), Jay Van Hoy (Love is Strange) and Julie Lynn (Albert Nobbs). Among this year’s summer camp for film producers we have the likes of Riel Roch Decter (who produced 2013 SXSW entry The Wait

from helmer M. Blash) and producer Laura Wagner (from Eliza Hittman’s It Felt Like Love fame). Here are the projects and producers heading up to the mythic location. Press release follows.

Now You Can Watch the Unaired Emma Roberts Pilot 'Delirium' on Hulu

20 June 2014 1:54 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Fox Entertainment and Wigs, a web-channel designed to appeal to female viewers, have teamed up to air "Delirium," a pilot that was never picked up, on Hulu.  Directed by Rodrigo Garcia ("Albert Nobbs"), the "Delirium" pilot introduces us to a dystopian world where love has been made illegal. The pilot stars Emma Roberts and Daren Kagasoff ("The Secret Life of the American Teenager"). Kiliaen Van Rensselaer, Fox's head of multi-platform programming, explains the reason behind the sudden interest in the doomed project. "We have a fully-finished piece of material that's great. There wasn't room for it on the air at the time, but because it has been made, and we do believe it's a great piece of work," he said. "It made sense to allow consumers to see what was made."In addition to this, Wigs was drawn to the project for obvious reasons: "high-quality, scripted dramas with a female lead, »
