Ben Foster joins the cast of Ron Howard’s Inferno

11 March 2015 11:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ben Foster (3.10 To Yuma, X-Men: The Last Stand) is set to join the stellar line-up for Inferno, the third adaptation of writer Dan Brown’s Robert Langdon series, reports The Hollywood Reporter.

Ron Howard is once again directing the film, which sees Oscar Winner Tom Hanks reprise his role as world-renowned symbologist Robert Langdon, with Oscar nominee Felicity Jones (The Theory of Everything), Omar Sy (Untouchable) and Irrfan Khan (Life of Pi) joining the cast for the new film.

Inferno sees Langdon drawn into a conspiracy to unleash a deadly plague centered on Dante’s Inferno, the 14th century epic poem about the nine circles of hell. Foster is set to play a “scientist who is obsessed with Inferno and has also dreamed up a plot to solve the world’s overpopulation problem by releasing a virus.”

Set to start shooting this Spring, Inferno is set for release in October »

Irrfan Khan & Omar Sy Join Tom Hanks & Felicity Jones In Ron Howard’s ‘Inferno’

18 February 2015 6:38 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Columbia Pictures’ Robert Langdon series — featuring the $1.2 billion collective earning of “The Da Vinci Code” and “Angels & Demons”— is a go again, with director/producer Ron Howard and producer Brian Grazer at the helm. In the latest installment, “Inferno," Tom Hanks is back to star, and some new players are joining him. Written by David Koepp (“Mortdecai”), and based on the book by Dan Brown, it will begin principal photography at the end of April. Newly announced members of the cast include Irrfan Khan (“Slumdog Millionaire,” “Life of Pi,” and “The Lunchbox”) who takes the role of Harry Sims, also known as The Provost. French actor Omar Sy (“The Intouchables,” “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” “Jurassic World”) will play Christoph Bruder. And perhaps most excitingly is Sidse Babett Knudsen of "Borgen" and "The Duke Of Burgundy" fame taking the part of Dr. Elizabeth Sinskey, the head of the World Health Organization. »

Khan, Sy and Knudsen Join Tom Hanks and Felicity Jones in 'Inferno'

17 February 2015 3:02 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I didn't particularly enjoyed either of the two previous Dan Brown novel adaptations, not The Da Vinci Code (a book that was so bad I had to stop reading it) or Angels and Demons (a book I actually enjoyed and a movie that was even worse than Da Vinci). Next up is Inferno, with Tom Hanks back to star as Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon and Ron Howard back to direct. Felicity Jones (The Theory of Everything) was already announced as a co-star and today Sony announced three more names joining the cast and they are, in fact, reason to possibly get interested. First off, Jones will star opposite Hanks as Dr. Sienna Brooks, a doctor tending to Langdon at the beginning of the story after he's grazed by a bullet and eventually becomes mixed in his latest mystery drawing from Dante's dark epic poem. amz asin="B00AXIZ4TQ" size »

Berlin: Variety Teams With MoDrei to Host Dance Night at Berlin Club Anita Berber

10 February 2015 7:23 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Berlin — On Monday, Variety teamed up with MoDrei to host a European Film Market party at uber-cool club Anita Berber on Gerichtstraße in Berlin.

For those not acquainted with the night-spot, they may have thought they had been lured to their doom at the murky end of a parking lot, but instead they found a warm and good-spirited gathering of some of the nicest people at the Berlin market dancing to music by DJ Flo Motion.

Moritz Hemminger, one of the partners behind MoDrei and an executive at Arri Worldsales, said they came up with the idea of the Berlin party “mainly to have a fun evening with our friends from the industry. We wanted to create an event that is more casual than the many more official Berlinale receptions taking place these days. And now with Variety on board we have the perfect partner for the MoDrei venue,” Hemminger said. »

‘Timbuktu,’ ‘Sils Maria,’ ‘Saint Laurent’ Vie for French Cesar Glory

28 January 2015 2:36 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In one of the widest-open Cesar races in recent years, Abderrahmane Sissako’s Oscar-nominated “Timbuktu” will face off for best picture with Olivier Assayas’ “Sils Maria,” Bertrand Bonello’s “Saint Laurent” and talked-up newcomer Thomas Cailley’s “Love at First Fight” at France’s 2015 Cesar Awards.

Timbuktu,” which world premiered at Cannes, earned eight Cesar nominations and will also compete foreign-language Oscar next month.

The Cesar race is dominated by “Saint Laurent” with 10 noms. Coming second is “Love at First Fight,” a performance-driven romantic comedy that proves to be yet another gem discovered by Directors’ Fortnight topper Edouard Waintrop (following last year’s “Me, Myself and Mom,” which ended up winning five Cesar kudos).

Also making the best picture cut, in a nomination line-up underscoring France’s wide production range: Robin Campillo’s “Eastern Boys,” French dramedy blockbuster “La Famille Belier,” helmed by Eric Lartigau, and Thomas Lilti’s admired medical drama “Hippocrates. »
