According to multiple sources, Sam Riley has joined the World War II love-story ‘Suite Française.’ Michelle Williams, Matthias Schoenaerts and Kristin Scott Thomas also star in the period adaptation of Irene Nemirovsky’s acclaimed novel about the tense love-affair between a young French woman, Lucile (Williams), and the German officer (Schoenaerts) assigned to supervise her in Nazi-occupied France. Scott Thomas will play Lucile’s domineering mother-in-law. Riley plays the role of French soldier Benoit. ’Suite Française’ will be released in France by TF1, while Entertainment One will release the picture in the UK, Spain and Canada.
French writer Irene Nemirovsky, of Ukrainian Jewish origin, had originally intended to write a series of five novels but after completing the first two, was arrested, detained and sent to Auschwitz, where she died. The notebook containing the two novels was preserved by her daughters but not made public until 1998. They were published in a single volume called ‘Suite Française’ in 2004. ’The Duchess’ director Saul Dibb has adapted Nemirovsky’s novel and will direct. ‘Suite Française’ is scheduled to start shooting in Belgium and Paris later this summer.
Closely following the news that Idris Elba has joined ‘The Gunman,’ Deadline hear that Ray Winstone has also joined the likes of Sean Penn, Jasmine Trinca and Javier Bardem in the action thriller. Based on Jean-Patrick Manchette’s ‘Prone Gunman’ novel and a script by Peter Travis (‘Dredd’ director), Pierre Morel is helming the feature. Winstone will play the mentor of the hitman played by Penn, who is betrayed and then hunted by the organization he worked for. On the opposite side of this twosome are Bardem and Elba, and they run all over Europe in a fatal game of cat and mouse. Trinca is the female lead.
‘The Gunman’ is fully financed by Studio Canal and is looking to begin shooting in Barcelona and other European locales later this month. The producers hope to launch a franchise with the movie. Ray Winstone’s tough guy cred includes ‘The Departed,’ ‘Sexy Beast,’ ’44 Inch Chest’ and the upcoming Darren Aronofsky-directed ‘Noah,’ where he goes mano-a-mano against Russell Crowe in that Biblical epic.
The Wrap are reporting that Gary Oldman is planning to direct a biopic of photographer Eadweard Muybridge titled ‘Flying Horse.’ Muybridge is famous for pioneering technological advances in photography and motion-capturing imagery, which were essential in the development of motion picture filmmaking. Oldman has already written the script, which focuses on the courtship and love affair between Muybridge’s wife, Flora, and Harry Larkyns, a famous theater critic killed by Muybridge.
Gary Oldman reportedly aims to cast his recent co-stars Ralph Fiennes as Eadweard Muybridge and Benedict Cumberbatch as Harry Larkyns. While Fiennes has discussed the project with Oldman and is interested in the role, neither actor is officially attached to ‘Flying Horse’ at this time, according to their respective representatives. Oldman may also play a small role as Dennis Spencer, the district attorney that prosecuted Muybridge.
Henry Cavill’s Superman & Christian Bale’s Batman Highlighted In Great Fan-Made ‘World’s Finest’ Poster
Sahin Duezguen has put together this top-notch fan poster for DC Comics’ beloved Superhero team up of Batman and Superman, ‘World’s Finest.’ With ‘Man of Steel’ out in cinemas now, expect to hear Warner Bros Pictures’ plans for the future of their DC Comics properties soon. Warner Bros took control of DC Comics in 2009, folding the comicbook company into the studio and re-launching it as DC Entertainment to better manage how its characters wind up on the big and small screens.
Warner Bros President Jeff Robinov recently explained that the self-contained world of ‘The Dark Knight’ trilogy will be left behind, and Zack Snyder’s Superman movie, ‘Man of Steel,’ will begin to open up a new DC Movie Universe: “I think you’ll see that, going forward, anything can live in this world. [Nolan’s] Batman was deliberately and smartly positioned as a stand-alone. The world they lived in was very isolated without any knowledge of any other superheroes. What Zack and Chris have done with this film [Man of Steel] is allow you to really introduce other characters into the same world.”
Magnolia Pictures has released, via iTunes Movie Trailers, this trailer for writer-director Lynn Shelton’s ‘Touchy Feely.’ Starring Rosemarie DeWitt, Ellen Page, Allison Janney, Josh Pais, Scoot McNairy, Ron Livingston and Tomo Nakayama, the film arrives on VOD on August 1st and lands in cinemas on September 6th.
TOUCHY FEELY is a closely observed examination of a family whose delicate psychic balance suddenly unravels. Abby (Rosemarie DeWitt), is a sought after massage therapist and a free spirit, while her brother Paul (Josh Pais) thrives on routine and convention, running a flagging dental practice and co-dependently enlisting the assistance of his emotionally stunted daughter Jenny (Ellen Page). Suddenly, transformation touches everyone. Abby develops an uncontrollable aversion to bodily contact, which not only makes her occupation impossible but severely hinders the passionate love life between her and her boyfriend (Scoot McNairy).
This new trailer has arrived online from the upcoming action-thriller ‘Killing Season.’ Set in the Appalachian Mountains, the story follows an American military veteran (Robert De Niro) who has retreated to a remote cabin in the woods. When a rare visitor, a European tourist (John Travolta), appears on the scene, the two men strike up an unlikely friendship. But in fact the visitor is a former Serbian soldier bent on revenge. What follows is a tense, action packed battle across some of America’s most forbidding landscape that proves the old adage: the purest form of war is one-on-one. ‘Killing Season’ opens in stateside theaters and on VOD on July 12th.
