First Official Images Of Michael Fassbender & Marion Cotillard In ‘Macbeth’; Fassbender Speaks On His Title Role
These first two images have arrived online from the upcoming ‘Macbeth’ adaptation, which is directed by ‘Snowtown’ helmer Justin Kurzel. Lead by Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard, ‘Macbeth’ features a stellar supporting cast in Paddy Considine, David Thewlis, Sean Harris, Jack Reynor and Elizabeth Debicki. No release date as of yet, but I would imagine The Weinstein Company are eyeing a late 2014 release in time for Awards season, given the source material and players behind and in front of the camera.
Careful not to judge Macbeth too quickly or harshly, Michael Fassbender had the following to say about his character. “I don’t think Macbeth is evil. I think he’s damaged,” he told the DM. “When we meet him, he’s a man who’s as good as his circumstances will allow. He serves his king loyally and looks after his soldiers.” The Oscar nominee also details the mindframe that Macbeth finds himself in with his wife. “He’d been away fighting and when he returns, we see it’s a relationship that’s broken down. They lost a child, and there wasn’t time for them to grieve because he’s been away campaigning. Lady M is desperate for that reconnection, and briefly they do. And, of course, the doorway has been opened to darkness and to violence.”
Variety are reporting that Steven Spielberg is set to produce and potentially direct the religious drama ‘The Kidnapping of Edgardo Mortara,’ written by his ‘Lincoln’ and ‘Munich’ scribe Tony Kushner (both of which landed Best Picture nominations). The script is based on David Kertzer’s nonfiction book about the true-life story of an Italian Jew who became the center of an international controversy in 1858 when he was removed from his parents at the age of 7 by authorities of the Papal States and raised as a Catholic. He went on to become a priest in the Augustinian order.
The outlet hear that Steven Spielberg is said to be very anxious to get back behind the camera, having not directed a movie since 2012′s ‘Lincoln,’ which won Daniel Day-Lewis a best actor Oscar for his portrayal of the 16th president of the United States. Tony Kushner is said to be in the early stages of writing ‘The Kidnapping of Edgardo Mortara,’ which Variety’ sources have made clear won’t be the next project Spielberg directs. He is currently deciding between ‘Robopocalypse,’ for which a rewrite has now been completed after the project was put on hold, and historical drama ‘Montezuma,’ which Steve Zaillian is currently writing and is thus likely not far enough along to be next up for Spielberg.
Warner Bros. Pictures has debuted this first trailer and poster for ’Jersey Boys,’ Clint Eastwood’s upcoming big-screen adaptation of the Tony Award-winning musical. Opening on June 20th, the film tells the story of four young men from the wrong side of the tracks in New Jersey who came together to form the iconic 1960s rock group The Four Seasons. The story of their trials and triumphs are accompanied by the songs that influenced a generation, including “Sherry,” “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” “Walk Like a Man,” “Dawn,” “Rag Doll,” “Bye Bye Baby,” “Who Loves You,” and many more.
These classic hits are now being embraced by a new generation of fans through the stage musical, which has been running on Broadway for more than eight years and has also enjoyed successful tours around the globe. Starring in the film, John Lloyd Young reprises his Tony Award-winning portrayal of the legendary lead singer of The Four Seasons, Frankie Valli. Erich Bergen stars as Bob Gaudio, who wrote or co-wrote all of the group’s biggest hits. Michael Lomenda and Vincent Piazza star respectively as Nick Massi and Tommy DeVito, two original members of The Four Seasons. Oscar winner Christopher Walken stars as mobster Gyp DeCarlo.
Lionsgate has revealed this latest clip from ‘The Quiet Ones,’ writer/director John Pogue’s supernatural thriller/horror that stars Jared Harris, Sam Claflin, Erin Richards, Olivia Cooke and Rory Fleck-Byrne. ‘The Quiet Ones’ tells the story of an unorthodox, but charismatic professor who uses controversial methods and leads his best students off the grid to take part in a dangerous experiment: to create a poltergeist from negative human energy. The film follows on from Hammer’s worldwide box office hit, ‘The Woman in Black,’ which starred Daniel Radcliffe and has taken over $130 million at the box-office worldwide to date. ’The Quiet Ones’ arrives in theaters on April 10th in the UK and April 25th in the US.
Variety bring word that Michael B. Jordan has signed on to lead Twentieth Century Fox’s CIA thriller ’Men Who Kill.’ While plot details are being kept under wraps, the tone of the film is described as “an international Bad Boys’”. Jordan is currently gearing up to shoot Josh Trank’s ‘The Fantastic Four’ as Johnny Storm, and is slated to star opposite Sylvester Stallone in the ‘Rocky’ spinoff feature, ‘Creed,’ which would reunite him with ‘Fruitvale Station’ director Ryan Coogler. Jordan will play Apollo Creed’s Grandson in that film. T.J. Fixman penned the script for ‘Men Who Kill’ and Greg Berlanti is producing.
