‘Far From The Madding Crowd’ Set For May 2015 – Starring Carey Mulligan, Matthias Schoenaerts & Tom Sturridge
Fox Searchlight Pictures send word that Thomas Vinterberg’s ‘Far From the Madding Crowd’ has been penciled in for a May 1st, 2015 release date. Starring the likes of Carey Mulligan, Matthias Schoenaerts, Michael Sheen, Tom Sturridge and Juno Temple, the script is written by David Nicholls, author and screenwriter of ‘One Day’ and ’Starter for Ten.’
Based on the literary classic by Thomas Hardy, ‘Far From the Madding Crowd’ is the story of independent, beautiful and headstrong Bathsheba Everdene (Carey Mulligan), who attracts three very different suitors: Gabriel Oak (Matthias Schoenaerts), a sheep farmer, captivated by her fetching willfulness; Frank Troy (Tom Sturridge), a handsome and reckless Sergeant; and William Boldwood (Michael Sheen), a prosperous and mature bachelor. This timeless story of Bathsheba’s choices and passions explores the nature of relationships and love – as well as the human ability to overcome hardships through resilience and perseverance.
Red Band US Trailer For Bong Joon-Ho’s ‘Snowpiercer’ – Starring Chris Evans, Jamie Bell, Tilda Swinton…
With a June 27th US release date finally in place, this new Red Band trailer has landed online for ‘Snowpiercer,’ the highly anticipated post-apocalyptic drama by writer/director Bong Joon-ho (The Host, Mother) and producer Chan wook-Park (Oldboy, Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance). The film is described as ”set in a future where, after a failed experiment to stop global warming, an Ice Age kills off all life on the planet except for the inhabitants of the Snow Piercer, a train that travels around the globe and is powered by a sacred perpetual-motion engine. A class system evolves on the train but a revolution brews.”
’Snowpiercer’ stars Tilda Swinton, Jamie Bell, Chris Evans, John Hurt, Ed Harris, John Hurt, Ko Asung, Alison Pill, Ewan Bremner, Octavia Spencer and Song Kang-ho – who previously starred in Bong Joon-ho’s equally fantastic ‘The Host’ and ‘Memories Of Murder.’ Marking Bong’s English language debut, ‘Snowpiercer’ is based on a French graphic novel titled ‘Le Transperceneige.’
While ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ doesn’t come out until the end this month, Bryan Singer and Simon Kinberg have already begun teasing details about the much anticipated film’s 2016 sequel. During a recent chat with SHH, screenwriter/producer Kinberg opened up about introducing one of the X-Men’s most persistently hard-to-defeat villains in Apocalypse. “We want to tell the Apocalypse story and there’s massive scale and scope to telling that story. There’s going to be set pieces that I suspect are going to be bigger than anything we’ve ever done in an X-Men movie before and he’s a great character. The biggest and funnest challenge of the Apocalypse movie to me is his character. How do you create a new villain for the X-Men world that is as good as any villain that’s come before, is compelling philosophically as Magneto, not just in his physical powers, but in his philosophical depth. ‘Apocalypse’ is going to be a fun movie to write and make.”
According to various reports, Patrick Wilson, Jessica Biel, Imogen Poots and Toby Jones are set to star in director Andy Goddard’s untitled adaptation of Patricia Highsmith’s novel ‘The Blunderer.’ The psychological thriller novel was first published in 1954. Highsmith wrote ‘The Blunderer’ in between ‘Strangers on a Train’ and ‘The Talented Mr Ripley.’
Set against a backdrop of early 1960s New York, Walter Stackhouse (Patrick Wilson) is a successful architect married to the beautiful Clara (Jessica Biel) and leading a charmed and perfect life. But his fascination with an unsolved murder leads him into a spiral of chaos as he is forced to play cat-and-mouse with a clever killer (Toby Jones) and an over-ambitious detective. Walter’s obsession, his lies and his lust for another woman (Imogen Poots) will collide in a crush of guilt, innocence and, ultimately, fate.
