Friends and colleagues remember Chris Collins

11 November 2014 2:55 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Colleagues including Elizabeth Karlsen, Adrian Wootton, Hugo Heppell and Amma Asante pay tribute to the late BFI Film Fund executive

I first met Chris at the Dinard FIlm Festival. I’d just watched Sarah Gavron’s beautiful rendition of Brick Lane, which Chris had produced.  After the screening he, Sarah and I sat at small table outdoors in the brilliant sunshine talking about films, the pressures of being an independent producer, our daughters and  how much I loved Brick Lane. I hope he knew that I was speaking from the heart. I was struck then by his quiet intelligence, his gracious and kind nature and his absolute devotion to and passion for independent film making. I could see that Sarah had enjoyed tremendous commitment from him as a producer on her first film. I was lucky enough, with my partner Stephen Woolley, to work with him consistently over the next eight years. He was unfailingly »

Dad's Army film cast revealed

8 October 2014 3:37 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Universal Pictures on board film adaptation of classic British series; cast to include Billy Nighy, Catherine Zeta Jones and Toby Jones

The cast of a long-rumoured film based on classic British comedy series Dad’s Army has been revealed.

Toby Jones, best known for roles in The Hunger Games and Harry Potter franchises, will take the leading role of Captain Mainwaring, a stiff-upper-lipped veteran who oversees the Home Guard in a small village toward the end of the Second World War.

His right-hand man, Wilson, will be played by Bill Nighy, known to international audiences for his roles in The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel and Love Actually.

Both were previously rumoured to be attached to the project, an adaptation of a BBC comedy series than ran from 1968-77, but Catherine Zeta Jones is newly attached to the film as journalist Rose Winters.

The all-star British cast will also include Tom Courtenay as Corporal Jones, Harry Potter »

She’s Back… First Trailer for Hammer’s The Woman in Black: Angel of Death

21 August 2014 9:21 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Two years ago, the huge success of the Daniel Radcliffe-led horror The Woman in Black confirmed Hammer’s comeback. Next year, the production company is coming back with the sequel, The Woman in Black: Angel of Death, with relative newcomer Phoebe Fox taking the lead alongside Jeremy Irvine (War Horse).

The first film took more than $120m. at the global box office, an impressive feat for any film, and even more so for a film made outside of the Us. And now we’ve got our first taste of the horrors in store for us next year, with the first teaser trailer landing online.

As bombs rain down on London during the Blitz of World War II, a group of school children are evacuated with Eve, their young and beautiful schoolteacher, to the safety of the English countryside. Taken to an old and empty estate, cut-off by a causeway from the mainland, »

Sexy Duo James and Heathcote Face Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

5 August 2014 | Horror Asylum | See recent Horror Asylum news »

It has been well over a year since we last reported on the planned adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's 'Pride and Prejudice and Zombies'. The project has already eaten through a feast of talent attached to the project at some point or another including stars such as Scarlett Johansson ('Avengers Assemble'), Natalie Portman and Anne Hathaway ('Les Miserables'). As well as Mike White and David O. Russell all set to work behind the camera. However, shooting is expected to kick off next month so this fresh coming together of director Burr Steers ('Igby Goes Down') and actors Sam Riley, Lily James -below ('Fast Girls', 'Downton Abbey') and the stunning Bella Heathcote -below ('Dark Shadows') will hopefully remain as the 'final' official line-up for the project. »

On The Set Of Noel Clarke’s The Anomaly

1 July 2014 3:50 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

In the blisteringly hot mid-summer of 2013 HeyUGuys were whisked away to a warehouse in East London to see one of this summer’s big British films, Noel Clarke’s The Anomaly, be shot. As soon as we walked into the warehouse, all sunshine was lost, and we found ourselves in a garish corridor, deep reds from floor to wall, and windowed booths every other step. This, apparently, is part of a brothel set on the sci-fi film’s shoot, and is being used at this point to house crew and cast between takes in a bedroom just far enough away to barely hear the dialogue being shot, but the punches are clear. Just to check, I asked Noel Clarke if this is in any way a family film. “No, 100% no. Have you seen any of my films that are family films? Except maybe Fast Girls.”

Ian Somerhalder: 'The Anomaly is Memento meets The Bourne Identity'

30 June 2014 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Hard though this is to believe, it's been more than four years since Noel Clarke last directed a movie. He had a triple whammy of writer-producer credits in 2012 with Fast Girls, Storage 24 and The Knot. Now he's back behind the camera, parlaying his Storage 24 and Star Trek Into Darkness experience into a low-budget but high-concept science fiction thriller.

Clarke plays the lead role of Ryan, a former soldier who finds himself captive in the back of a van and only able to stay conscious in bursts of precisely 9 minutes and 47 seconds.

Digital Spy sat down with Ian Somerhalder on the film's London set last summer to discuss the joys of shooting sci-fi on a shoestring, the film's Memento-like premise, and his work with the Ian Somerhalder Foundation.

What appealed to you about The Anomaly?

Noel is so prolific at what he does, and I was really excited to »

Trailer: The Anomaly

10 June 2014 9:33 AM, PDT | Pure Movies | See recent Pure Movies news »

Ryan has a lot of questions, and very little time to find any answers.

Traumatised ex-soldier Ryan wakes up in the back of a van, alongside a kidnapped boy. Ryan helps him escape but when he finds a mask in his pocket he comes to an appalling realisation…. But there’s no time to act – after nine minutes and forty seven seconds of consciousness it all goes black. What does this have to do with Ryan’s past as a patient at the experimental Medical Unit? Ryan has a lot of questions, and very little time to find any answers.

The Anomaly stars Ian Somerhalder (The Vampire Diaries, Lost), Noel Clarke (Star Trek into Darkness, Fast Girls), Brian Cox (The Bourne Ultimatum, Rise of the Planet of the Apes), Alexis Knapp (Pitch Perfect, Project X) and Luke Hemsworth in his first lead feature film role.

Meet the actors set to star in new science thriller DxM

15 May 2014 1:13 PM, PDT | ScreenTerrier | See recent ScreenTerrier news »

A host of young talent is set to star in a new "quantum theory" thriller DxM announced at Cannes today.

The story follows a group of young bio-engineers who realize that quantum theory can be used to transfer motor skills from one brain to another. Believing this will lead to intellectual equality among humans, the group soon faces dark forces threatening to subvert the technology as an instrument for mass control.

Tom Payne (represented by Curtis Brown) leads the group as Jaxon, described as extremely intelligent and motivated, and the driving force behind the new technology. Tom also recently filmed the leads in The Physician and British indie feature Winter (aka Barking at Trees).

Melia Kreiling (represented in the UK by Piers Nimmo) plays Stella, a mystery to the rest of the group, a highly skilled bio engineer who specialises in everything. Part Greek and part American, Melia trained in »
