Chloë Sevigny Says Democrats Must “Fight” To Vote Out Trump
Chloë Sevigny believes it’s time for political change in the U.S., and she’s willing to support any Democrat who can defeat President Trump.

The Oscar-nominated actress (Boys Don’t Cry) discussed the 2020 presidential election in a Saturday article published by the U.K.’s Guardian, while promoting her perfume Little Flower.

Sevigny said she’s backing Bernie Sanders, but in the end, she’ll support any Democrat over Trump.

“Bernie Sanders is punk as f**k, plain and simple,” she said.

“I’m petrified of the U.S. government right now. We need someone radical to take Trump on, and Bernie’s record as a senator speaks for itself,” she continued. “Honestly, at this stage, I’ll campaign for whoever runs as a Democrat. We just have to get out and fight.”

The actress and director also talked about her career, and admitted she doesn’t like to read articles about herself.

How Italy Entices Big-Budget Film and TV Projects to Shoot on the Peninsula

  • Variety
This summer there is lots of action on the Italian peninsula.

“No Time to Die, ” the latest James Bond film, is shooting amid cave dwellings in the ancient southern town of Matera, while Christopher Nolan’s latest, “Tenet,” is encamped in Ravello, a jewel overlooking the Amalfi coast. Terrence Malick is in Anzio, a central seaport, where cameras are rolling on his drama “The Last Planet,” which will reportedly depict passages in the life of Christ.

A little further north, on the grounds of Rome’s Cinecittà World theme park, Sky’s high-end Rome-origins skein “Romulus,” filming in archaic Latin, is in the midst of a 28-week shoot, while Luca Guadagnino’s HBO/Sky show “We Are Who We Are,” set on a U.S. Army base, is about to go into production in Padua.

“There is a production surge under way,” says “Romulus” producer Riccardo Tozzi, chief of ITV-owned Cattleya.

Luca Guadagnino in talks to helm ‘Lord of the Flies’

Call Me By Your Name’ and ‘Suspiria’ helmer, Luca Guadagnino, has entered into talks with Warner Bros to take over the helm of their ‘Lord of the Flies’ adaptation.

William Golding’s classic 1954 novel focuses on a group of British boys stranded on an uninhabited island and their disastrous attempt to govern themselves during a nuclear war.

Guadagnino and his producing partner Marco Morabito will produce the movie if terms are agreed upon.

Back in 2017, after Warner won the rights to adapt the story, it was widely reported that the story would take on a gender swap approach with Scott McGehee and David Siegel acting as co-directors. The very thought of a male directing team fronting an all-female lead feature led to a major backlash and the idea was subsequently dropped.

New Film Adaptation of Lord Of The Flies To Be Helmed By Suspiria Director Luca Guadagnino

William Golding’s classic novel Lord of the Flies is being being adapted into a feature film again and this time it looks like it’ll be directed by Luca Guadagnino, who is best known for his work on Call Me by Your Name and Suspiria.

Lord of the Flies is a favorite book of mine and I liked both the 1963 film adaptation as well as the 1990 film. It was only a matter of time before the story got another film adaptation. Warner Bros. has been looking to get the movie off the ground since 2017.

The story follows a group of school boys who end up stranded on a deserted island and over time they descend into a savage social order. At one point, the studio had the idea of having this new adaption focus on a group of school girls, but according to the report, that plan has been

New Lord of the Flies Movie Coming from Suspiria Director

Rosie Fletcher Jul 30, 2019

Luca Guadagnino's next project will be a new version of William Golding's classic nightmarish novel, Lord of the Flies.

He nailed the coming-of-age genre with Call Me By Your Name, then he veered into the world of horror with Suspiria, a remake of Dario Argento's classic giallo film about a dance academy with a very dark and gruesome secret. There really was no other logical choice then for director Luca Guadagnino than to opt to take on a new adaptation of coming-of-age story turned absolute horror show (and also religious allegory) Lord of the Flies.

According to THR, the director is in talks with Warner Bros. to take on the project, which he would also produce with his producing partner Marco Morabito. Back in 2017, there was talk of adapting William Golding's novel but gender-swapping it so it would focus on a group of school
