After teaming up on ‘Les Miserables,’ it was announced last April that director Tom Hooper and actor Eddie Redmayne are set to reunite on ‘The Danish Girl,’ a film inspired by the novel written by David Ebershoff. The film is a love story about Danish painters Einar Wegener (Redmayne) and his wife Gerda (Alicia Vikander). In 1930, Wegener was one of the first men ever to undergo operations to become a woman.
Today we get our first look at the recent Oscar winner as Einar Wegener. Alongside Redmayne and Vikander, the cast also includes Matthias Schoenaerts, Ben Whishaw and Amber Heard. The book, which has been adapted for the big screen by Lucinda Coxon, is officially described as follows:
Alcon Entertainment send word that Harrison Ford will reprise his celebrated role of Rick Deckard in the sequel to ‘Blade Runner’ and Academy Award nominee Denis Villeneuve (Prisoners, Incendies) is in negotiations to direct. The film is scheduled to start principal photography in summer of 2016. Hampton Fancher (co-writer of the original) and Michael Green have written the original screenplay, based on an idea by Fancher and Ridely Scott. The story takes place several decades after the conclusion of the 1982 original.
“We are honored that Harrison is joining us on this journey with Denis Villeneuve who is a singular talent, as we experienced personally on ‘Prisoners,’” said Alcon co-founders and co-CEO’s Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson, “Hampton and Michael, with Ridley Scott, have crafted a uniquely potent and faithful sequel to one of the most universally celebrated films of all time, and we couldn’t be more thrilled with this amazing, creative team.”

Last summer it was reported Christian Bale will star in director James Mangold’s adaptation of ‘The Deep Blue Good-By,’ the beloved John D. MacDonald novel that kicked off series of mystery novels with character Travis McGee. Today we hear that Academy Award-nominee Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl) has also joined the film in a leading role. Bale will play the iconic literary role of McGee.
Written by MacDonald in 1964, ‘The Deep Blue Good-By’ is the first in a series of 21 that followed McGee, a self-described “salvage consultant” who recovers property for a fee and along the way gets into trouble fighting bad guys and wooing women. ‘Mystic River’ novelist Dennis Lehane penned the script with Scott Frank working on the most recent draft.

Madame Sabine De Barra (Kate Winslet) is an unlikely candidate for landscape architect of the still‐to-be-completed Palace of Versailles. She has little time for the classical, ordered designs of the man who hires her, the famous architect Le Nôtre (Matthias Schoenaerts). However, as she works on her creation, she finds herself drawn to the enigmatic Le Nôtre and forced to negotiate the perilous rivalries and intricate etiquette of the court of King Louis XIV (Alan Rickman). But Sabine is made of strong stuff; her honesty and compassion help her to overcome both the challenges of her newfound popularity, and an unspeakable tragedy from her past, to win the favour of the Sun King and the heart of Le Nôtre.
