Movies, Ophelia

THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER – Daisy Ridley is the forbidden love of Hamlet in The Hollywood Reporter’s exclusive first-look image of Ophelia.

Set in the 14th century but spoken in a contemporary voice, Ophelia is a dynamic re-imagining of the Shakespeare’s tragedy that tells the untold story of her tragic romance with the prince.

Naomi Watts, Clive Owen, George MacKay, Tom Felton and Devon Terrell also star in the film, which follows Ophelia as the Queen’s (Watts) most trusted lady-in-waiting. Beautiful and intelligent, she soon captures the attention of the handsome Prince Hamlet (MacKay) and a forbidden love blossoms.

Owen plays Claudius, Felton plays Laertes and Terrell will play Horatio.

Directed by Claire McCarthy, the adaptation comes from Lisa Klein’s book and Semi Chellas wrote the screenplay. Daniel Bobker, Sarah Curtis, Paul Hanson and Ehren Kruger are producing.

Covert Media is handling international sales at the Cannes Film Festival. CAA is handling domestic rights.

Movies, Murder on the Orient Express

THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER – Kenneth Branagh’s star-studded adaptation of Agatha Christie’s Murder on the Orient Express pulled into Las Vegas with the first footage at CinemaCon Thursday.

Branagh directs and stars in the Fox film, which also features Penelope Cruz, Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer, Leslie Odom Jr., Daisy Ridley, Michael Pena and Judi Dench among the cast.

The story centers around a murder onboard the famous train and introduces Belgian detective Hercule Poirot (Branagh), who must solve the case while being surrounded by duplicitous passengers.

Branagh, sending in a video from Malta where he’s filming the project, said “we’ve assembled an amazing group” of his cast. “This is not only a who dunnit and how dunnit, it’s crucially a why dunnit,” he said.

The stylish trailer shows a train traveling through a snowy landscape. In it is a varied cast of characters, all of whom could be the murderer.

“I see evil on this train,” says a voice. We get our first look at many of the stars in their characters, and the final frame is of Barangh’s Hercule Poirot, sporting blonde hair and a massive grey mustache.

The film is scheduled for release on November 22.

STAR WARS – Attention, Star Wars fans: It’s time to make some room on your desk, toy shelf, bookshelf, and in your closet.

Disney and Lucasfilm today announced Star Wars Force Friday II, a global fan event celebrating the launch of Star Wars: The Last Jedi products. Toys, collectibles, books, apparel, and more will go on sale beginning at 12:01 a.m. on Friday, September 1, 2017, with stores around the world opening for a weekend-long celebration of all things Star Wars. In addition, packaging for the new line, featuring striking images of a lightsaber-wielding Rey, Poe Dameron, and Finn, was also revealed today and can be seen below.

“The first Star Wars Force Friday event was truly unique, uniting fans across five continents in an unprecedented global live unboxing event ahead of thousands of midnight openings at retail,” said Jimmy Pitaro, chairman, Disney Consumer Products and Interactive Media. “We’re excited to confirm that Star Wars Force Friday is back for The Last Jedi. Plans for this year’s worldwide event are top secret, but expect something befitting the excitement around the next episode of the Star Wars saga.”

Star Wars fans around the globe embraced Force Friday in 2015, with hundreds of thousands turning up to stores at midnight to be the first to get their hands on merchandise from Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Toys from the new line were revealed via a global livestream unboxing event with top Maker Studios creators that unfolded over 18 hours, 15 different cities and 12 countries, attracting millions of views on YouTube. Fans took to social media to share their experiences with nearly 3 billion Twitter impressions about the events, using #ForceFriday.

Jill Wilfert, vice president of global licensing and entertainment from The LEGO Group commented, “It was so much fun to be a part of Star Wars Force Friday, and we can’t wait for fans to join this year’s celebration as we reveal new Star Wars: The Last Jedi products during Force Friday II — a global event that will connect fans and families, and allow them to build, create and share their experiences with others.”
Details of how fans can participate will be revealed closer to the event, but the worldwide launch will tap new technology and Star Wars mythology to create a unique experience for fans. Just like 2015, products for The Last Jedi will be kept under wraps until Force Friday II to preserve surprises for fans. As well as introducing new characters from the movie in toy form, the line will build on the success of products like Sphero’s BB-8, introducing more innovative technology to bring the characters and stories from the film to life in unique ways.

“Toys play a unique role in the Star Wars universe, and we’re proud to have been part of that incredible legacy for the past 40 years. The new line for The Last Jedi is our most innovative yet, and we’re excited to unveil it on Force Friday II,” said Samantha Lomow, senior vice president at Hasbro.

A Woman Of No Importance, Movies

DEADLINE – Paramount Pictures has acquired the Sonia Purnell book A Woman Of No Importance, and has attached Star Wars‘ Daisy Ridley to star. The book by the author of Clementine is the biography of American heiress and super-spy Virginia Hall, who attempted to break into the ranks of the American Foreign Service in the years before World War II. Rejected because of gender and a disability — she lost part of her leg in a hunting accident — Hall worked during the war for the British intelligence unit SOE. She later joined the OSS, the forerunner of the CIA.

Ridley is currently shooting the Murder On The Orient Express at Fox, and will reprise in the just-named Star Wars: The Last Jedi. She is also attached to Chaos Walking at Lionsgate, Kolma at Paramount and the indie Ophelia.
