Stamp can currently be seen in Netflix hit “Murder Mystery” with Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston. Rigg’s recent roles include Olenna Tyrell in HBO’s “Game of Thrones.” The British star of stage and screen also picked up the Variety Icon Award in Cannes earlier this year.
The roster of other talent coming on board “Last Night in Soho,” which is being produced by Wright and Working Title Films, includes Rita Tushingham (“Doctor Zhivago”), Michael Ajao (“Attack the Block”) and Synnøve Karlsen (“Medici”).
The new names join the previously announced Anya Taylor-Joy, Thomasin Harcourt McKenzie and Matt Smith in the film. Production is underway on the London-set psychological thriller, which Wright is directing from a
Berney was hired by Amazon in 2015 and recently reached the end of his four-year contract. His last day will be Friday.
During his time at amazon, the film veteran oversaw a number of successful films including “Manchester by the Sea” – which became the first streamer film nominated for best picture – as well as other critically acclaimed films “The Big Sick,” “Cold War” and “The Salesman.”
Matt Newman, one of the studio’s feature film co-heads, will likely step in as the company looks to fill the position.
Berney first entered the film industry in 2005 with the launch of the indie production company Picturehouse, with HBO Films and New Line, where he oversaw a number of films including “Pan’s Labyrinth.” Soon after, the film veteran moved to Apparition before co-founding and serving as president of theatrical distribution for FilmDistrict.
Silver has always been a provocative figure with hits that include the Lethal Weapon, The Matrix and Sherlock Holmes franchises as well as The Book of Eli, RockNRolla, Unknown, Non-Stop and The Nice Guys.
Perhaps the most surprising thing about Cuarón’s “Roma” scooping best picture is that it’s only the second of his films to win an Ariel award, and the first to be nominated for best picture. In 1992 “Sólo con Tu Pareja” was nominated for best first work and screenplay, and won best original story. In 2001 he chose not to submit his Oscar-nominated classic “Y tu mamá también” in protest at the Academy’s voting practices.
By the end of the Monday evening however, “Roma” netted 10 prizes, including best director, supporting actress, photography, screenplay, editing, sound, art design, visual effects and special effects to go along with the best picture prize.
A festival darling over the past year,
In a terse announcement on its official Weibo account, the film said late Tuesday that, “after consultation between the production team and other entities, ‘The Eight Hundred’ will cancel its original July 5 premiere and temporarily vacate the summer release date window. The new release date will be announced at a later time.”
The statement gave no indication as to what occasioned the cancellation. But China is undergoing a period of strong social and cultural tightening, and Chinese film censors have been especially active lately in ordering changes to films or yanking them from festivals and the domestic release schedule.
Besides “The Eight Hundred’s” announcement, an upcoming film whose original Chinese title translates
La La Land star Emma Stone has denied that a shoulder injury that may disrupt the new 101 Dalmatians prequel Cruella was the result of a fall at a Spice Girls concert.
The Sun reported that Stone broke her shoulder after falling to the ground as she was sitting on a friend’s shoulders at the concert on 13 June at Wembley; she had been photographed with group member Emma Bunton before the show. The report also stated it took Stone a few days to realise the extent of the injury.
Hong Kong director Johnnie To will act as chairman of the Golden Horse jury, the festival said. He has been nominated eight times for the best director award and won it on three occasions: in 2000 for “The Mission,” 2004 for “Breaking News” and 2012 for “Life Without Principle.”
He thanked director Ang Lee, head of last year’s executive committee, for the invitation, saying: “The Golden Horse Awards are the most prestigious awards in the Chinese-language cinema and a very important recognition that my films have received. Before I’m awarded another prize, I feel honored to have this chance to offer my services.
British-based Vue International is awaiting approval from German antitrust officials on its €221.8 million ($252.7 million) bid to take over CineStar, which operates 57 sites with 438 screens across the country. Vue already owns rival exhibitor Cinemaxx, which has 30 sites – including its own multiplex in Potsdamer Platz – and 257 screens. A merger would create Germany’s biggest cinema operator by far.
CineStar reportedly told its employees at the Sony Center multiplex in April that it would close the site by year’s end, when its lease is set to expire. The company, which declined to comment for this story, has issued no reason publicly for the closure.
But it informed
