Christopher McQuarrie To Direct Colin Firth In An Adaptation Of Jean-Patrick Machette’s ‘Three To Kill’
Deadline report that Christopher McQuarrie has signed on to direct and Colin Firth will star in ‘Three To Kill,’ an adaptation of the novel by French author Jean-Patrick Manchette. The film is a thriller set on the coast of France. It follows a disillusioned businessman who witnesses a murder and finds himself being hunted by two relentless sociopaths. The novel was adapted by Jacques Tardi into the graphic novel ‘West Coast Blues,’ and that was nominated for two Eisner Awards in 2010. Manchette’s ‘The Prone Gunman’ was separately turned into ‘The Gunman,’ a Studio Canal Silver Pictures co-production that was directed by Pierre Morel with Sean Penn, Javier Bardem and Idris Elba starring.
Christopher McQuarrie is currently prepping ‘Mission: Impossible 5,’ while Colin Firth will next be see in ‘The Railway Man’ and ’Devil’s Knot.’ The ’Three to Kill’ novel is officially described as follows: “Businessman Georges Gerfaut witnesses a murder-and is pursued by the killers. His conventional life knocked off the rails, Gerfaut turns the tables and sets out to track down his pursuers. Along the way, he learns a thing or two about himself…. Manchette-masterful stylist, ironist, and social critic-limns the cramped lives of professionals in a neo-conservative world.”
‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ Set for May 15th 2015 – Starring Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult, Zoe Kravitz….
Warner Bros. Pictures have just announced that they’ve set George Miller’s ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ for a 2D and 3D release on May 15th, 2015. While there are currently no other films slated for that specific date, it is two weeks after Marvel’s ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ and one week before both Paul Feig’s ‘Susan Cooper’ and Brad Bird’s ‘Tomorrowland.’
The film, which began filming in summer 2012, stars Tom Hardy as the titular Max, Charlize Theron as Imperator Furiosa, Nicholas Hoult as Nux, Hugh Keays-Byrne as Immortan Joe, and Nathan Jones as Rictus Erectus. Collectively known as The Wives, Zoe Kravitz plays Toast, Riley Keough is Capable, and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is Splendid. They are joined by supermodel Abbey Lee Kershaw as The Dag and Courtney Eaton as Fragile, both of whom are making their big screen debuts. George Miller, who directed the previous three installments, returns to helm ‘Mad Max: Fury Road.’
The story for ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ begins as Katniss Everdeen has returned home safe after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games along with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark. Winning means that they must turn around and leave their family and close friends, embarking on a “Victor’s Tour” of the districts. Along the way Katniss senses that a rebellion is simmering, but the Capitol is still very much in control as President Snow prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games (The Quarter Quell) – a competition that could change Panem forever.
‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ sees Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, and Liam Hemsworth reprising their roles of Katniss, Peeta and Gale, with Lenny Kravitz, Elizabeth Banks, Stanley Tucci, Donald Sutherland, Willow Shields, Toby Jones and Woody Harrelson also returning to their respective roles. The likes of Philip Seymour Hoffman, Jeffrey Wright, Jena Malone, Lynn Cohen, Stephanie Leigh Schlund, Maria Howell, E. Roger Mitchell, Alan Ritchson, Bruno Gunn, Meta Golding, Sam Claflin and Amanda Plummer join the “Hunger Games” film series for this sequel. Lionsgate will release ’The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ on November 21st in the UK and November 22nd in the US. Francis Lawrence directs.
Peeta, like Katniss, is still struggling to recover from all that he saw and went through during the Hunger Games. And he’s still reeling from his unrequited romantic feelings for Katniss, he finds it bittersweet to head out on an expertly spun, heavily manufactured “Victors’ Tour,” where the two must pretend to be perfectly, madly in love….
Josh Hutcherson: For sure. For me, Peeta is a great character because he gives you a lot to do as an actor. It was really exciting to experience these characters again, but in a very different kind of story and time in their lives. In Catching Fire we’re on the “Victors’ Tour” and Peeta and Katniss have to pretend like they’re madly in love with each other and everything is fine and happy. In reality it’s actually really hard for both of them. It’s nice to have those sort of double life type things, and that’s what’s going on in this in the beginning.
Catching Fire picks up a few months after we won the Hunger Games, and we’re about to go on our “Victors’ Tour,” which means we have to go to each of the different Districts and basically celebrate and say, “It’s great to be a part of the Capitol,” and all this stuff… which is really hard for us because we’re being paraded around against our will and we don’t support the Capitol. We’ve both been trying to get back to our old routine of things but now we’re different, we have notoriety and it’s also tough to go back to your home life after such an intense, brutal battle. They’re both going through a big transition, for sure.
