Cannes Update: Jessica Chastain to Star in and Produce “Seducing Ingrid Bergman”

22 May 2017 11:01 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Jessica Chastain in “Miss Sloane

Jessica Chastain is set to portray an icon of the silver screen. The two-time Oscar-nominated actress will topline and produce “Seducing Ingrid Bergman,” Deadline reports. Chastain will play the Swedish actress in the romance. The news broke at Cannes.

Written by Arash Amel (“Grace of Monaco”), the project centers on the relationship between the “Casablanca” star and Robert Capa, an acclaimed Hungarian war photographer. Their romance “began in Paris immediately following WWII, and moved to Hollywood at the time of the McCarthy Communist witch hunts,” the source summarizes.

Seducing Ingrid Bergman” has already secured financing from Yrf Entertainment. Kelly Carmichael, the president of production and development at Chastain’s Freckle Films, will oversee the project.

A director hasn’t signed on yet. Given Chastain’s commitment to supporting female filmmakers, we’re confident that women directors are among those being considered for the gig.

“We are thrilled to be working with Yrf and Arash Amel on ‘Seducing Ingrid Bergman.’ This is a captivating story about a deeply moving romance between two remarkable people,” said Chastain and Carmichael.

Yrf chief executive officer Uday Chopra described Chastain as “the perfect actress to star in ‘Seducing Ingrid Bergman.’” He explained, “Jessica is no stranger to portraying strong, intelligent women and this role deserves an actress of her immeasurable talent. We also feel that she will bring a unique perspective as a producer.”

Bergman’s credits include “Notorious” and “Spellbound.” The three-time Academy Award winner died in 1982.

Chastain earned Oscar nods for “Zero Dark Thirty” and “The Help.” You can catch her in Niki Caro’s “The Zookeeper’s Wife,” now in theaters. The drama is based on a true story and centers on zookeepers who saved hundreds of lives during the Holocaust. The “Miss Sloane” actress’ upcoming projects include Susanna White’s Native American period drama “Woman Walks Ahead” and “Painkiller Jane,” an adaptation of the graphic novel series of the same name about a former police officer turned vigilante.

Cannes Opening Night Film: Director Addresses Controversy About Two Cuts

17 May 2017 5:17 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Controversies over showing the director’s cut of a film is familiar turf at the Cannes Film Festival — remember Harvey Weinstein vs. “Grace of Monaco”?

But at the press conference on Wednesday afternoon for this year’s opening night selection, “Ismael's Ghosts,” director Arnaud Desplechin tried to downplay reports that his version isn’t premiering at the festival.

The extended cut of the film, which is 20 minutes longer, will only screen for now at Paris’ Cinema du Pantheon, owned by producer Pascal Caucheteux. Jean Labadie’s banner Le Pacte will release the version that’s showing in Cannes in French theaters. Magnolia Pictures, which is distributing the film in the United States, still hasn’t decided which version to show.

“This is an idea that dates from a long time ago,” Desplechin said. “It was a proposal by the producer. We were looking at the situation … There aren’t actually two films. »

Cannes Film Review: ‘Ismael’s Ghosts’

17 May 2017 2:54 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

By far the most important ingredient for any artist is life experience: When storytellers try to tackle anything more realistic than a by-the-numbers superhero movie, it helps to have had your heart broken, perhaps to have lost a parent, to have been forced to choose between two lovers, to have fathered a child. With “Ismael’s Ghosts,” Arnaud Desplechin attempts to cram all this and more into a single film. A self-absorbed, nightmare-besotted director (played by Mathieu Amalric) is literally haunted by his past when his wife, presumed dead for 21 years, unexpectedly reappears midway through his latest production — but even though much seems to be informed by autobiography (or at least narcissism), precious little rings true.

As phony emotional showcases go, this one’s full of unintentionally comedic melodrama, rivaling cult favorite “The Room” at times as Amalric (reprising his role as the chronicallly unstable Ismael Vuillard from “Kings and »

12 May 2017 3:16 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After Sylvester Stallone backed out of the fourth and final Expendables sequel back in March, the actor had a big hole in his schedule, which has now been fillled. The actor will be teaming up with international action icon Jackie Chan on a new action-thriller entitled Ex-Baghdad, which is said to be one of the biggest movies ever to come out of China. After Expendables 4 fell apart, Sylvester Stallone looked to this project to take on next, although it hasn't been confirmed when filming will begin.

Deadline reports that Scott Waugh (Need for Speed) has been set to direct, from a script by Arash Amel (Grace of Monaco). The story follows a Chinese private security contractor (Jackie Chan), who is assigned to extract the Chinese workers of an oil refinery in Mosul, Iraq. When the contractor learns that the attackers plan on stealing a fortune's worth of oil, he teams »

Sylvester Stallone and Jackie Chan to team for ‘Ex-Baghdad’

11 May 2017 11:23 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Sylvester Stallone and Jackie Chan will team for a new action-thriller called Ex-Baghdad for director Scott Waugh. Deadline reports that the $80 million production is written by Arash Amel (Grace Of Monaco).

The trade blog also added a synopsis for the film, which should kick off production this year.

When a China-run oil refinery is attacked in Mosul, Iraq, a Chinese private security contractor (Chan) is called in to extract the oil workers. He learns, however, that the attackers’ real plan is to steal a fortune in oil, and teams up with an American former Marine (Stallone) to stop them.

This is the first time the two film legends have appeared on-screen together with Ex-Baghdad being the movie that Stallone chose to make instead of another Expendables sequel, a film that Chan was rumoured to be joining.

Weinstein Company Sends Michelle Williams Drama to Lifetime

11 May 2017 12:49 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Lifetime’s roster of actors is gaining major prestige, all thanks to the Weinstein Company. Two years after dumping Nicole Kidman’s Oscar hopeful “Grace of Monaco” off at the TV network — following terrible reviews after the opening night film of the 2014 Cannes Film Festival — the Weinstein Company has granted the same fate to “Suite Française,” a wartime romance starring Michelle Williams.

‘Suite Française’: The Real Reason Why the Weinstein Company’s WWII Drama Ended Up at Lifetime

11 May 2017 11:33 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Remember that wartime romance from The Weinstein Company, starring Michelle Williams and Matthias Schoenaerts? Probably not; TWC took U.S. and other rights to Saul Dibb’s World War II drama, “Suite Française,” four years ago at the Cannes Film Festival.

And now, two years after its release in the U.K., it will premiere stateside on Lifetime May 22 — much as another TWC busted theatrical, “Grace of Monaco,” which opened the Cannes Film Festival out of competition in 2014.

Set in Nazi-occupied France, “Suite Française” follows a French villager (Williams) who strikes up a romance with a German soldier (Matthias Schoenaerts) while waiting for news of her husband with her domineering mother-in-law (Kristen Scott Thomas). Dibb co-wrote and directed the film, which is based on the best-selling book by Irene Nemirovsky. Bob and Harvey Weinstein both served as executive producers. »

Rosamund Pike Signs on to Play War Reporter Marie Colvin

19 April 2017 8:01 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Rosamund Pike in “Return to Sender”: Patti Perret

Rosamund Pike is set to portray another real-life figure. The Oscar-nominated actress will play American war reporter Marie Colvin in an untitled film, Deadline reports. Pike was last seen in Amma Asante’s politically-charged biographical interracial romance “A United Kingdom” playing Ruth Williams, the white, British wife of King Seretse Khama of Botswana.

Colvin “worked in conflict zones including Chechnya, Kosovo, Sierra Leone, Zimbabwe, and Sri Lanka, where she lost her left eye in 2001,” the source writes. She “wore a distinctive eye patch after that, [and] died in early 2012 during a rocket attack covering the civil war in Syria for the U.K.’s Sunday Times.”

Slated to begin production in October in the UK and Middle East, the pic is based on “Marie Colvin’s Private War,” a 2012 Vanity Fair article written by Marie Brenner. Arash Amel (“Grace of Monaco”) penned the script, and Matthew Heineman (“Cartel Land”) will direct.

According to Deadline, the feature is being “produced by Thunder Road PicturesBasil Iwanyk and Kamala FilmsMarissa McMahon, as well as Denver & Delilah Films” with Erica Lee serving as exec producer. The source doesn’t mention Charlize Theron, who was initially reported to be producing the project. She’s still listed on the film’s IMDb page.

Pike received an Oscar nomination in 2015 for “Gone Girl.” “Jack Reacher,” “An Education,” and “Die Another Day” are among her other credits.

The Marie Colvin film isn’t the only high-profile project in the works about a woman documenting international conflict. Jennifer Lawrence will play Lynsey Addario in an upcoming adaptation of Addario’s best-selling memoir “It’s What I Do: A Photographer’s Life of Love and War,” and Kate Winslet is set to portray American photographer Lee Miller in an as-yet-untitled movie. Miller’s photos documented the events and effects of WWII, including the London Blitz and concentration camps.

You can still catch “A United Kingdom” in theaters.

Why Nicole Kidman Is a Full-Fledged Badass, Even Before ‘Big Little Lies’ — Career Watch

11 April 2017 3:37 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Welcome to Career Watch, a vocational checkup of top actors and directors, and those who hope to get there. In this edition we take on Nicole Kidman, who’s having something of a renaissance moment.

Bottom Line: Nicole Kidman is one of our most fearless actresses. She’s an Oscar perennial who constantly chases challenging material, edginess be damned. Yes, her most recent nomination stemmed from a very mild-mannered role as Dev Patel’s mother in the true-life Australian drama “Lion,” but for Kidman’s career it’s her exceptions that prove the rule.

She broadened her fanbase by producing, with Reese Witherspoon, the hugely popular and topical HBO drama series “Big Little Lies,” in which she co-starred as Celeste Wright, an elegant Monterey mom trapped in a sadomasochistic power struggle of spousal abuse with her husband Perry (Alexander Skarsgard). Critics’ raves and audience reaction will likely push Kidman to »
