Jamie Chung and Bryan Greenberg will lead the indie romance-drama, ‘It’s Already Tomorrow in Hong Kong,’ which recently won the Canon Filmmakers Award from Film Independent. The film will mark the feature directorial debut of Emily Ting, who also wrote the script. Chung, who is engaged to Greenberg, is set to play a Chinese-American girl who, while visiting Hong Kong for the first time for business, meets American ex-pat Josh (Greenburg). An attraction forms between them but the timing might not be on their side. Filming is slated to begin in Hong Kong next month.
Bryan Greenberg’s most recently wrapped production on ‘Vice’ alongside Bruce Willis and Thomas Jane, and can next be seen in ‘A Short History of Decay’ and Stephen Frears’ untitled Lance Armstrong biopic. Jamie Chung will next be seen in ‘Sin City: A Dame to Kill For,’ Alfonso Cuarón’s NBC series ‘Believe,’ and she’s lending her voice to Disney and Marvel’s ‘Big Hero 6.’
We’re incredibly sad to report that British acting legend Bob Hoskins has died from pneumonia and complications from Parkinson’s Disease at the age of 71. His agent said he passed away on Tuesday in hospital, surrounded by family. Undoubtedly one of Britain’s best-loved actors, Hoskins has played a wide variety of roles since the 1970s, ranging from gritty gangster films to comedy roles.
Notable performances include the 1980 British gangster film ‘The Long Good Friday,’ Terry Gilliam’s ‘Brazil,’ Neil Jordan’s ‘Mona Lisa,’ Robert Zemeckis’ ‘Who Framed Roger Rabbit,’ Steven Spielberg’s ‘Hook,’ Stephen Frears’ ‘Mrs Henderson Presents,’ Oliver Stone’s ‘Nixon,’ ‘Twenty Four Seven,’ ‘Made in Dagenham,’ the drama serial ‘The Street,’ and most recently as one of the dwarves in ‘Snow White & The Huntsman.’ Hoskins acting has earned him a Cannes Award, a Golden Globe for Best Actor, several BAFTA Awards, and an Academy Award nomination for ‘Mona Lisa,’ in which he starred opposite Michael Caine and Robbie Coltrane.
Having pegged both Drew Goddard to write and direct ‘The Sinister Six’ and Alex Kurtzman to writer and direct a ‘Venom’ movie, Sony Pictures are currently hard at work expanding their big screen Spider-Man Universe outside of the series of “Amazing Spider-Man” films. To give fans a tease of what’s to come, the studio recently announced a promotion with the Shazaam movie app, telling people to use the app during the end credits of ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2′ to reveal a “look into the sinister future” – presumably hinting at the members of ‘The Sinister Six.’ (spoilers below.)
While LucasFilm finally made a casting announcement today for ‘Star Wars: Episode VII,’ it is being reported that director J.J. Abrams has another substantial role to fill – and it’s a female part. A number of people have been critical about the lack females in the six previous ‘Star Wars’ films and the just-announced new cast. In Tuesday’s long awaited announcement, newcomer Daisy Ridley is the only woman among the crop of actors joining the franchise, which include John Boyega, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson and Max von Sydow.
Earlier this year, it was reported that the team behind ‘Star Wars: Episode VII’ were on the lookout for a mixed-raced female in her twenties, and a name that was strongly linked to the film was unknown British actress Maisie Richardson-Sellers. J.J. Abrams also reportedly met with Oscar-winning ’12 Years a Slave’ actress Lupita Nyong’o, although it is not known for what part. Hopefully we get some more news on this front shortly.
Last night The Paris Theater in Manhattan, New York hosted the premiere of ‘Belle,’ the fantastic movie inspired by the true story of Dido Elizabeth Belle. ‘Belle’ is directed by BAFTA Award winner Amma Asante, written by Misan Sagay, and stars Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Tom Wilkinson, Miranda Richardson, Penelope Wilton, Matthew Goode, Emily Watson, Sam Reid, Sarah Gadon, Tom Felton and James Norton. ‘Belle’ is set for a May 2nd release in the US and a June 13th bow in the UK.
‘Belle’ is inspired by the true story of Dido Elizabeth Belle (Gugu Mbatha-Raw), the illegitimate mixed race daughter of a Royal Navy Admiral. Raised by her aristocratic great-uncle Lord Mansfield (Tom Wilkinson) and his wife (Emily Watson), Belle’s lineage affords her certain privileges, yet the color of her skin prevents her from fully participating in the traditions of her social standing. Left to wonder if she will ever find love, Belle falls for an idealistic young vicar’s son bent on change who, with her help, shapes Lord Mansfield’s role as Lord Chief Justice to end slavery in England.
DreamWorks Animation has unveiled this new behind-the-scenes featurette for ‘How to Train Your Dragon 2.’ The sequel checks in with Hiccup (Jay Baruchel) and his dragon pal, Toothless, five years after he brought humans and dragons together on the island of Berk. An outsider who’s now the village hero, Hiccup is on the verge of adulthood, with his chieftain father, Stoick the Vast (Gerard Butler), grooming him for responsibility. But he’d rather embrace what’s left of his carefree childhood.
