Simon Beaufoy to Adapt ‘In the Skin of a Lion’ From ‘English Patient’ Author

19 June 2017 8:36 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

British screenwriter Simon Beaufoy has signed on to adapt the immigrant story “In the Skin of a Lion” as a movie for Serendipity Point Films, UK’s Film4 and Potboiler Films.

Serendipity’s Robert Lantos (“Barney’s Version,” “Eastern Promises”) and Potboiler’s Andrea Calderwood (“A Most Wanted Man,” “The Last King of Scotland”) will produce.

The project is based on Michael Ondaatje’s 1987 novel about the lives of immigrants who played a large role in the building of the city of Toronto in the early 1900s. The story focuses on romance and class conflict amidst the clash between immigrant workers and the ruling elite.

“In the Heart of a Lion” introduced the characters Hana and David Caravaggio, who were also in Ondaatje’s 1992 novel “The English Patient.” The Anthony Minghella adaptation of the novel won nine Academy Awards, including best picture and best supporting actress for Juliette Binoche in the role of Hana. »

Serendipity Point, Film4, Potboiler team on 'In The Skin Of A Lion'

19 June 2017 12:52 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Simon Beaufoy to adapt screenplay about immigrant workers in Toronto.

Serendipity Point Films, Film4 and Potboiler Productions are partnering on a feature version of Michael Ondaatje’s novel In The Skin Of A Lion.

Simon Beaufoy, the Oscar-winning Slumdog Millionaire writer whose credits include 127 Hours and The Full Monty, will adapt the screenplay.

Serendipity’s Robert Lantos and Potboiler’s Andrea Calderwood are on board as producers on Ondaatje’s sweeping 1987 saga of love and class. 

In The Skin Of A Lion takes place in Toronto in the early 1900s and chronicles the lives and loves of immigrant workers who built the city.

The book set the scene for Ondaatje’s The English Patient, which is regarded as a sequel of sorts. The late Anthony Minghella adapted that novel, which famously went on to win nine Oscars .

Serendipity Point’s recent productions include Barney’s Version and the drama Remember starring Christopher Plummer.

Paul Thomas Anderson’s Next Film Gets Christmas Day Release

29 March 2017 6:54 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

After the announcement that production kicked off on Paul Thomas Anderson and Daniel Day-LewisThere Will Be Blood reunion, things have been fairly quiet from the London set. With a working title of Phantom Thread, we know the film “illuminates the life behind the curtain of an uncompromising dressmaker commissioned by royalty and high society,” but not much else. Also starring Lesley Manville (Secrets & Lies, Another Year), Richard Graham (Vera Drake, Titanic), and Vicky Krieps (A Most Wanted Man, Hanna), another piece of the puzzle has arrived: we now know when the film will arrive.

Considering PTA’s usually extensive post-production process and the initial vague release window of late 2017, it’s not necessarily a surprise, but during the Focus Features presentation at Cinema Con today, a Christmas Day release was confirmed. Presumably a limited debut with a wider release in January, there’s currently no other limited releases scheduled »

Lesley Manville and Richard Graham Join Paul Thomas Anderson’s Next Film

31 January 2017 7:48 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

At long last, Paul Thomas Anderson and Daniel Day-LewisThere Will Be Blood reteam — which is set in the 1950s fashion industry in London — began production over the last few days, but aside from some photographic proof, Focus Features have been silent regarding the additional cast and crew. With a working title of Phantom Thread, a few readers have done some digging and we’ve got a few more members to add to the ensemble.

First up, taking a page from Mike Leigh’s handbook, Lesley Manville (Secrets & Lies, Another Year) and Richard Graham (Vera Drake, Titanic) have both joined the film, as noted on talent agency pages. An actress spotted in set photos has also been identified as Vicky Krieps (A Most Wanted Man, Hanna). For hailing from Luxembourg, she’d certainly fit the initial casting net of “young actresses of Eastern European descent” for the female lead, so »

27 January 2017 3:01 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Roadside Attractions and FilmNation Entertainment have bought North American rights to “Beatriz at Dinner.” The comedy debuted at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, earning praise for Salma Hayek’s lead role as a holistic healer. Although written and produced before Donald Trump assumed the presidency, many critics also noted that the picture had a topical air. It follows Hayek’s character, an immigrant from Mexico, as she faces off with a tough-minded real estate mogul and billionaire, played by John Lithgow. The parallels are difficult to miss.

Beatriz at Dinner” was written by Mike White and directed by Miguel Arteta, the team behind “Chuck & Buck.” In a Variety review, chief film critic Owen Gleiberman praised the directing and writing duo, writing that “they’ve created the kind of Trump-tweaking film that specialty audiences will surely want in 2017: one that says there are two American destinies now, and that »
