Girl in the Spider's Web Targets Claire Foy as Lisbeth Salander

Girl in the Spider's Web Targets Claire Foy as Lisbeth Salander
It seems Sony Pictures may have found their new Lisbeth Salander in The Crown star Claire Foy, despite reports from March that both Scarlet Johansson and Natalie Portman were up for the role. Claire Foy is reportedly in early talks, but she may not be set quite yet. Insiders claim that, while Claire Foy has in fact been offered the role, there are still scheduling issues that need to be worked out before she can sign on.

The Hollywood Reporter reveals that this coveted role went down to both Claire Foy and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story star Felicity Jones. It's possible that Felicity Jones may be offered the role if these scheduling conflicts can't be worked out, but that has yet to be confirmed. Claire Foy has also been fielding interest to star in Universal's biopic First Man, starring Ryan Gosling as American astronaut Neil Armstrong, although it

The Many Faces Of Rooney Mara

Since her acting debut in 2005, Rooney Mara has been increasing her name recognition one film at a time. Her roles haven’t been cut and paste either; she’s dabbled in a plethora of genres and roletypes. In an effort to recognise her many ‘changing faces’, we’ve compiled a list of her most diverse characters.

Tanner Hall

Look at those pigtails! Rooney inadvertently landed her first starring role in Tanner Hall, a coming-of-age film that takes place in an all-girl’s boarding school. Originally trying out for a smaller, tomboyish role in the film, the director decided to cast her as the lead after seeing her audition. Rooney played Fernanda, a ‘goody two shoes’ senior at the school whose image becomes threatened when Victoria, the school’s new troublemaker, finds out about the illict affair Fern has been having with an older (and married) family friend.

Review: The Truth About Emanuel Floats To The Surface

The sophomore film by writer/director Francesca Gregorini, following 2009's Tanner Hall, revolves around Emanuel (Kaya Scodelario), a precocious high school girl who carries on her shoulders the self-placed burden of her mother's childbirth death. For Emanuel, life is a struggle to find herself, despite feeling like she doesn't belong due to her unjust welcome into life. As Emanuel's world view gets darker and more melancholic, a mysterious woman named Linda (Jessica Biel) moves in next door. She is a single mother who needs help with her baby, and she and Emanuel quickly become close -- almost mother/daughter close. This worries Emanuel's father, Dennis (Alfred Molina) and Janice (Frances O'Connor); Emanuel's trying-too-hard step-mom. However, as the story unfolds, the relationship between Emanuel and Linda grows and...

'Your Voice in My Head': Emma Watson to Star as Bipolar Writer

Hermione has officially left the building. Former "Harry Potter" star Emma Watson, who appeared in two of the summer's very best films -- "The Bling Ring" and "This is the End" -- as two very different characters, is continuing to make bold career choices. The 23-year-old actress is next set to star in "Your Voice in My Head," the movie adaptation of Emma Forrest's bestselling memoir about her struggles with bipolar disorder.

What's interesting about the project is that Watson was attached once before: Earlier this year, when it was going to be helmed by four-time "Harry Potter" director David Yates, she was on board. But when Yates dropped out, so did Watson, and Emily Blunt was cast in her place. Blunt later split with the production as well, leaving Watson able to return, this time under the direction of "Tanner Hall" filmmaker Francesca Gregorini.

Emma Watson Rejoins Your Voice In My Head; Francesca Gregorini to Direct

The lead casting for Your Voice in My Head has come full circle. The adaptation of the Emma Forrest memoir was initially set to mark the next project for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows director David Yates, and he quickly signed Emma Watson to star. The film offers up a meaty lead role as it chronicles Forrest’s troublesome and self-harming behavior, as well as her relationship with her psychiatrist. Yates subsequently dropped out of the project as a result of scheduling issues, and then Watson was replaced by Emily Blunt earlier this year. Now it has been announced that Watson has rejoined the project in the lead role, with Francesca Gregorini (Tanner Hall) onboard to direct.
