TV Review: ‘Will,’ TNT’s Punk Rock Take on William Shakespeare

9 July 2017 12:10 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The oddest assumption “Will” makes is in assuming that William Shakespeare, the Og of the English language, needs the patina of punk rock to make him cool. I’m no expert on cool, but haven’t we all trod this ground many times before? The executive producer and writer of the pilot, Craig Pearce, wrote the screenplay for “Romeo + Juliet,” along with director Baz Luhrmann and, of course, the Bard himself. It’s been over 20 years since that film and “Shakespeare in Love”; about a decade since teen movies “She’s the Man” and “Deliver Us From Eva” applied the Shakespeare formula to high school. To belabor the point: Joss Whedon’s black-and-white, modern-day “Much Ado About Nothing” is just five years old, 2014’s “The Hollow Crown” on BBC cast well-known heartthrobs like Tom Hiddleston and Benedict Cumberbatch in the lead roles, and for pete’s sake, “The Lion King” is based on “Hamlet.”

Ben Whishaw, Alan Cumming and Russell Tovey are set to headline “Queers,” a new series of one-off monologues for BBC Four curated and directed by “Sherlock” co-creator Mark Gatiss.

The eight-episode series, which is currently in production, is produced by BBC Studios in partnership with London’s famous Old Vic theater, which will stage all eight 15-minute monologues in July ahead of their television transmission.

The series was commissioned by the BBC to mark the 50th anniversary this year of the U.K.’s landmark Sexual Offenses Act, which partially de-criminalized sex between men. The monologues, written by eight different new and established writers, including Gatiss, will explore some of the most poignant, funny, tragic and riotous moments of British gay history and the personal rites of passage of British gay men through the last 100 years.

Thea Sharrock Being Eyed to Direct “The One and Only Ivan”

27 March 2017 7:02 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Thea Sharrock: ScreenSlam/YouTube

Thea Sharrock may be following up a tragic romance with a gorilla story. The “Me Before You” director is in talks to helm Disney’s big screen adaptation of Katherine Applegate’s Newbery Medal winner “The One and Only Ivan.” Variety reports that Mike Newell (“Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time”) was originally attached to the project, but is no longer involved, and Sharrock is being eyed to replace him.

Published in 2011, the book tells the story of a silverback gorilla named Ivan, “who is in a cage at a shopping center with an elderly elephant named Stella and a stray dog named Bob,” the source details. “When a baby elephant arrives, Ivan regains his memories and plans an escape to protect the new elephant from their abusive owner.” The book, illustrated by Patricia Castelao and told from the perspective of Ivan, is based on “the story of a gorilla named Ivan who spent 27 years in a Washington mall before being transferred to an Atlanta zoo.”

Mike White (“Beatriz at Dinner,” “School of Rock”) penned the script. Allison Shearmur (“Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” “Cinderella”) is producing the project.

Last year’s “Me Before You” marked Sharrock’s feature debut. The film starred “Game of Thrones’” Emilia Clarke as a chronically under- and unemployed woman who accepts a job caring for and offering companionship to a disabled man (Sam Claflin, “The Hunger Games” franchise) despite the fact that she has no experience in the field. The tearjerker grossed over $207 million on a budget of $20 million.

Sharrock, a theater vet whose TV directing credits include “Call the Midwife” and “The Hollow Crown,” has also signed on to helm Warner Bros.’ adaptation of Kiera Cass’ 2012 Ya novel “The Selection.” The plot centers on a woman competing for a prince’s affections. No word on when we can expect either “The Selection” or “The One and Only Ivan.”

In an interview with Women and Hollywood, Sharrock said of women in the industry, “If a woman is the right person for the job, she should get the job, not because she’s a woman but she’s the right person for the job. But I find it staggering that in my career, I have never felt I got a job because I’m a woman. I’ve never approached things with that in my mind, but when you look at the numbers in movies, it’s absolutely staggering.”

Thea Sharrock Being Eyed to Direct “The One and Only Ivan” was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »

Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Sally Wainwright Win Big at Royal Television Society Awards

23 March 2017 7:02 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Phoebe Waller-Bridge in “Fleabag

Here’s some happy news about two very dark shows: writer-creators Phoebe Waller-Bridge (“Fleabag”) and Sally Wainwright (“Happy Valley”) were the big winners at last night’s Royal Television Society (Rts) Awards, BBC News reports.

Waller-Bridge accepted the Breakthrough and Best Comedy Writer prizes, and Wainwright received Best Drama Writer and the Judges’ Award. “Happy Valley,” a crime drama starring Sarah Lancashire, was also honored with the Rts Drama Series award.

Fleabag,” which was recently renewed for a second season, is set in London and centers on a self-destructive young woman (Waller-Bridge) who owns a guinea pig-themed café. “I really wanted to hide a tragedy in a comedy and I really wanted to trick people,” Waller-Bridge has said. “I love the idea of disarming an audience through comedy and making them feel safe, and in turn making them vulnerable to twists and turns that they might not be expecting from a character.”

Waller-Bridge previously wrote and starred in “Crashing” about a group of twentysomethings using an old hospital as apartments. She is also working on BBC America’s “Killing Eve,” which centers on Eve, a fiercely intelligent security services operative who dreams of leaving her desk job behind to be a spy, and Villanelle, an elegant and proficient murderer. Waller-Bridge will serve as showrunner on the series.

Wainwright is keeping busy as well. Her new series about trailblazing landowner Anne Lister, “Shibden Hall,” will be produced by Lookout Point for BBC One and co-produced with HBO. Wainwright also wrote and directed the TV movie “To Walk Invisible: The Brontë Sisters.” Premiering March 26 on PBS, “To Walk Invisible” follows sisters Charlotte, Emily, and Anne (Finn Atkins, Chloe Pirrie, and Charlie Murphy) as they face “numerous obstacles to write some of the greatest novels in the English language.”

Julie Walters was honored at the Rts awards with the Lifetime Achievement award. “I simply can’t thank all the amazing people I have elbowed out of the way to get where I am,” Walters quipped as she picked up the prize. Probably best known as Mrs. Weasley from the “Harry Potter” films, the actress has appeared in the Hulu series “National Treasure,” “Brooklyn,” and “Brave.” Walters will next be seen in “Mary Poppins Returns.”

Finally, Sophie Okonedo was named Best Female Actor for her work in “Undercover.” The drama miniseries centers on lawyer Maya Cobbina (Okonedo), who “returns to Britain to become the first black Director of Public Prosecutions,” according to its synopsis. After accepting the position, “she begins to suspect that everything she knew about the man she has been married to for the past 20 years (Adrian Lester) is a lie.”

Okonedo received an Oscar nod for Best Supporting Actress in 2005 for her role in “Hotel Rwanda.” Her other credits include “The Hollow Crown,” “The Escape Artist,” and “After Earth.”

Author: Zehra Phelan

The first look at Elle Fanning as English novelist, Mary Shelley, who is best known for the Gothic novel Frankenstein, has emerged via The Hollywood Reporter. The drama is currently under offer to buyers from Hanway at the Berlin Film Festival, Berlinale.

At the tender age of just 18 (19 come April), Elle Fanning has just been seen in an appearance in the sinister yet beautiful trailer for the upcoming The Beguiled alongside Nicole Kidman and Colin Farrell. She eems to have surpassed her elder sister, Dakota Fanning, through numerous projects which have not only gained critical acclaim (read our review of The Neon Demon here) but has many flocking to have her lead their pictures. Most recently we have seen her in Live by Night alongside Ben Affleck and just last week saw the release of 20th Century Women.
