"The Greatest" picked up

 

The Greatest picked up

 source ; reuters

The Greatest was one of two movies at Sundance that had the entire festival talking about Carey Mulligan, a young British actress who seems poised to break out in a major way (the other was An Education, out later this year). Now the rest of us will get a chance to see what the buzz is all about; The Greatest has been picked up by Senator Entertainment for a North American release.

The movie stars Pierce Brosnan and Susan Sarandon as a pair of grieving parents, with Mulligan as the girlfriend of the son the parents lost. Per the press release, "as the Brewers adjust to their new “relative,” and the impending birth of a child who can never replace the one they lost, a drama of great warmth, depth, and surprising humor emerges."

Our Kelly West saw the movie at Sundance, and wrote that it "really does successfully capture the heartbreaking grief involved in the loss of a child as a family tries figure out how to move past it." If you have time to have a good cry when the credits roll, The Greatest sounds like an excellent all-around weepie. I'll be looking forward to it.

The Ghost shooting in March

 

Shooting in March " The Ghost"

source ; http://www.fodors.com/

The German island Sylt will become the main location for the film "The Ghost" after the novel by Robert Harris. The films tells a fictional story about former UK prime minister Tony Blair and deals with the question why he supported president Bush's decision to start a war with Iraq ("Bush's poodle"). I found the novel most thrilling and entertaining.

The film will be starring Olivia Williams, Ewan McGregor, Pierce Brosnan, Jim Belushi and Kim Catrall.

Sylt has much in common with Martha's Vineyard - similar landscape, dunes, luxury villas, celebrities..

But in order to make it look like Martha's Vineyard, they will install American street signs and aboveground power lines (in Germany, power lines are underground).

The outdoor shootings will happen in March, while the studio shootings are currently taken at Babelsberg Studios in Potsdam (also a worthy travel destination).

The film is directed by Roman Polanski.

"The Ghost" start filming On Sylt

Roman Polanski has begun filming his new thriller ‘The Ghost’ on the German island of Sylt on the North Sea.


The local port was turned into a film studio and many wooden buildings were refaced to resemble American style houses. Sylt is being transformed to resemble the American popular vacation spot Martha’s Vineyard, on the Atlantic Ocean.

Polanski, who is not allowed into the United States because he has been convicted of raping a 13-year-old girl in 1973, chose instead to film in Germany.

The film crew is composed of 120 people. Ewan McGregor plays the lead role. Pierce Brosnan will also appear in the film.

The Polanski film crew will be on-location on the island until the 6 March. The film’s release date has not yet been announced.

Rumours are growing that Universal is close to signing a deal for Mamma Mia! 2, an Abba-themed sequel to the most successful film ever at the UK box office. The movie made Universal £69.05m in Britain alone.

Cash trouble Brosnan's African film

Cash trouble Brosnan's African film

source ; http://www.independent.ie

Irish actor and James Bond star Pierce Brosnan has had to postpone work on his new film Heaven on Earth because the multi-million euro production has been struck by a delay in financing.

The €11m project, based in Cape town,South Africa, was scheduled to start filming last Thursday week, but it was halted when the necessary funding failed to come through.

The star had jetted into the city to begin filming the romantic epic but left the country only days later after being told of the problem.

The Irish actor is now at his home in Los Angeles but staff from his production company Irish Dreamtime have stayed behind in South Africa in an attempt to salvage the project.

Speaking about the setback, Michael auret managing director of Spier Films -- the company producing the film in collaboration with Focus Films -- explained: "We've had to postpone work on the movie.

"Pierce went home but his production company Irish Dreamtime is working to get it back up again.

"Pierce came down and all the crew and cast came down and then we had problems closing the financing. But they are still very interested in the project," he said.

As Mr Auret explained: "Focus Films have been meeting their financial obligations in the pre-production period, as far as we are aware, and will continue to do so via bridging loans until the legal agreements are finalised and the rest of the finance flows into the production."

"Heaven and earth" more info about stop

Heaven and earth set to a halt

 

source ; moneyweb

Filming on a romantic epic called Heaven and Earth which was set to star Pierce Brosnan and Californication star Natasha McElhone, has ground to a halt despite elaborate sets being built in Cape Town for the R200m plus epic romantic biopic.

Local and international news reports have laid the blame on "the credit crunch" and "cash-flow problems" but inside sources say that the real problem was a bungled effort to raise funds timeously. The film is a collaboration between Focus Films from the UK and Spier Films in South Africa.

"Basically Spier Films was supposed to be the SA production company and Focus Films was to have brought some of the money and skills. We hear that Pierce Brosnan was signed to play the lead in December at price tag of a EUR2,5m," said a British crew member from Cape Town who did not want to be named.

"Most of the crews haven't been paid for the last three weeks, and they have been working in good faith. We were supposed to start shooting last Thursday, and we already had a full and very elaborate set. Natasha has been out here for two weeks doing dancing lessons and getting horse riding lessons. The film was pulled literally as the cameras were about to start to roll," the crew member said.

"There are a lot of local hire and production support companies that are now out of money because they offered services and products to the makers of the film because of their names and on good faith. None of this has been paid for."

It appears that the film has stalled because of a lack of bridging finance, which was due to come from the IDC.

When approached for comment on this matter the IDC replied: "According to Basil Ford, head of media & motion pictures: The IDC did not consider the project for funding as we were not given sufficient time, we received the application a week before the movie was scheduled to start shooting."

Crew members were called into a meeting last week Friday where they were told by one of the films producers David Pupkewitz of Focus Films UK "The funds have been totally exhausted. There is nothing left."

Industry sources say that the film could leave a trail of debt. In the meeting Pupkewitz put the figure for current debt at R6m, but on set sources say that this will be as high as R10m when the full tally is done.

A synopsis of the film was available for view on Focus Films' website, but following a story in Independent's Tonight, this was pulled from the company's filmography.

Speaking from Spier Film's offices in Cape Town, Pupkewitz said that they hadn't closed the paperwork on financing. "We had a short period to do this because Pierce Brosnan was only signed in December, so we could only started on financing before the new year. The production got ahead of the paperwork. We did pump in over $1m dollars, but we couldn't go into filming before the main funding came through."

"The talent are now so emotionally invested that they want to continue with the film. We have had a look at scheduling and we will have to look at Brosnan and McElhone's schedule and are hoping that the best critical path would be to start up in a month's time."

When asked why the application for funding was put through to the IDC so late, Pupkewitz said: "I don't want to comment on the IDC because it doesn't serve us and it is a hornet's nest. Parties are very sensitive to criticism in South Africa. I don't think it is right to comment there because it can hurt our cause. I am the UK co-producer. It is the SA co-producers' responsibility to raise local funding. The application was submitted by Spier Films. To date we haven't received any cash flow from South Africa."

The management of Spier Films were not available for comment this morning.

Crisis hits "Heaven and Earth"

Crisis hits "Heaven and earth"

source ; contactmusic.com

Hollywood actor PIERCE BROSNAN is the latest celebrity feeling the effects of the global economic crisis - his upcoming big-screen outing has reportedly been delayed due to a lack of funds.
The former James Bond star signed up to play Lord Charles Somerset in Heaven and Earth, a $20 million (£14 million) biopic of James Miranda Barry - a woman doctor who masqueraded as a man to follow a medical career.
Filming was due to start on the big budget movie last Thursday (12Feb09) with a release date planned for later this year (09).
But the economic crisis has put paid to those plans - with U.K. newspaper The Independent reporting an unidentified British backer has failed to provide promised funds in time, forcing filming to be delayed

"Heaven and earth" set to a halt

 

Work on Brosnan film in Cape grinds to a halt

By Natasha Joseph

The filming of a major movie starring former James Bond actor Pierce Brosnan is "on ice" for at least a month due to reported "cash-flow problems".

"Furious" crew members don't believe they will be paid and are not certain that the filming of the romantic epic Heaven and Earth in Cape Town will ever get off the ground.

They claim the producers have already racked up enormous debts.

But the movie's executive producer says filming is to resume in about six weeks and although R10-million has been invested in the project so far, it is "a gross exaggeration" to describe this as debt
A massive set erected in Strandfontein will have to be dismantled
.

Crew members say everything was in place for filming to start late last week, but they were told on Friday that work on the film would have to be halted while producers tried to come up with funding to clear their debts and get the cameras rolling.

A massive set erected in Strandfontein will have to be dismantled this week because another film is due to be shot there
. Heaven and Earth is a joint project of British-based production company Focus Films and Spier Films, which has offices in London and Cape Town.

According to a synopsis posted on Focus Films's website, the movie tells the story of army surgeon Dr James Miranda Barry, whose skills took the British garrison at the Cape by storm during the early 19th century.

Barry was actually a woman masquerading as a man, and was forced to assume the disguise because women were not allowed to enter the medical world as surgeons.

She was rumoured to be the lover of Cape Governor Lord Charles Somerset.

According to a disgruntled crew member, who asked to remain anonymous, British and Australian crew members flew into Cape Town from the beginning of December and were "guaranteed two weeks' work".

"We were told they were waiting to sign lead actors before the money would be green-lighted."

After two weeks, she said, producers told the crew that the project had been "green-lit" and filming would start in February

"Heaven and earth" delayed

Filming of Cape drama delayed by cash crisis


By Bronwynne Jooste

A funding crisis is threatening to scupper one of the biggest film projects being undertaken in Cape Town this year - Heaven and Earth, starring Hollywood star Pierce Brosnan.

Producers of the multi-million- rand feature film, based on the life of the Cape Colony's medical inspector James Barry, are putting their faith in bridging finance while they wait for promised funds to arrive.

Pre-production has already started in the city, with significant expenses already incurred.

The finance promised by a backer from Britain has been delayed several times.

Brosnan has already arrived in the city to start shooting. He plays Cape governor Lord Charles Somerset, believed to have been Barry's lover.

The drama tells of a secret love affair between Somerset and James Miranda Barry, who was a woman posing as a man. Some of the film is set to be shot at The Castle.

Filming was scheduled to start on Thursday, but was delayed on account of the cashflow problems.

It is now scheduled to start tomorrow, but it is not clear whether funding will come through.

The film is being produced by British production company Focus Films. It approached Spier Films, which has offices both in Cape Town and London, to be the official South African co-producer but the deal will only become official once all legal and financial documentation is signed.

Until then, Focus Films will be the lead producer, and has already pumped millions into the project since pre-production started in December.

Spier Films also produced the award-winning musical, U-Carmen eKhayelitsha.


Michael Auret, the joint managing director of Spier Films, said although Focus Films had been sourcing bridging finance, they had "met all their financial obligations" to this point.

"Prior to the closing of the financial agreements, Focus Films have been responsible for the pre-production of the film and have to date invested more than R10-million on preparing this wonderful project."

He said they expected legal agreements to be signed before shooting was scheduled to start on Sunday, although pre-production has already begun.

Auret said a range of factors was holding up the process.

These included negotiations with lawyers, adding that it was "not unusual" for these agreements to be finalised long after shooting had commenced.

"The legal agreements have not closed as yet, but we believe this will happen soon and that shooting will start as scheduled.

"Focus Films have been meeting their financial obligations in the pre-production period, as far as we are aware, and will continue to do so via bridging loans until the legal agreements are finalised and the rest of the finance flows into the production."

David Pupkewitz, the film's executive producer with Focus Films, was unavailable for comment but the Focus Films website states that Heaven and Earth has a $15m budget

"press release" Heaven and Earth

source ; http://www.free-press-release.com/

South Africa, Republic of (Press Release) February 12, 2009 -- It is therefore no surprise that 2009 promises to be a watershed year for the Cape Film Industry. We cannot help but be excited as major deals are being put together to bring 7 major film productions including a number of Bollywood productions to Cape Town within the first quarter of 2009, and another animated feature film is also being scheduled to go into production in early 2009.

‘The Human Factor’ a movie about South Africa winning the Rugby World Cup in 1995 will commence production soon, and will be directed by Oscar winner Clint Eastwood, with international film stars Morgan Freeman and Matt Damon. It is based on the book ‘The Human Factor: Nelson Mandela and the Game that changed the world’.
‘Heaven and Earth’ will feature Pierce Brosnan, playing Lord Charles Somerset, the Cape’s first governor. The Castle will be used as one of the locations for the shoot.
South Africa’s first full length CGI film, Lion of Judah, was also produced in Cape Town and is set for international release later in year. Already negotiations are underway for another CGI animated film and announcements will follow shortly.

In a recent frank interview with the Commissioner of the CFC, Laurence Mitchell, he clearly sounded optimistic in stating that “Cape Town and the Western Cape is set to become a global film industry destination and that 2009 will be a crucial year during which we will have to up our game as the rest of the world would have taken notice”.

“We have often been told that we are too ambitious and lack the necessary skills and infrastructure. However it has now become apparent that indeed we have the capacity to become this global film destination/ industry.

Sexiest Male 2009

Sexiest Male 2009

source ; http://www.rna-uk.org/

British actor Richard Armitage has leapt from last year's 4th place to this year topping the ratings in the Romantic Novelists' Association 2009 Valentine's poll, to take the title of Sexiest Thing on Two Legs, beating top Hollywood stars to the number one spot.

Johnny Depp, who topped last year's poll, was pushed firmly into second place, with Hugh Jackman and George Clooney mere also-rans. "Richard Armitage took 20% of the vote, more than double the count of any other male on the list," said the RNA pollster. "He was a clear winner from the off."

The RNA is not alone in admiration of the actor, as numerous online Richard Armitage fan sites will testify. The ardency began with North and South, grew by leaps and bounds with his appearance as the leather-clad baddie in Robin Hood, and shows no sign of diminishing as Spooks takes to the airwaves.

"It's a coup for Britain," said one starstruck writer, "not just for sexy Richard."

According to romantic novelists, the sexiest male celebrities of 2009 are:

1Richard Armitage
2Johnny Depp
3Hugh Jackman
4George Clooney
5Daniel Craig
6Sean Bean
7Alan Rickman
8David Tennant
9Pierce Brosnan

"Heaven and Earth"

DIRECTOR: Marleen Gorris (Academy Award winner, Antonia’s Line)

CAST: Pierce Brosnan ,Natasha McElhone (Ronin, Solaris, Californication)

WRITER: Malcolm Kohll

PRODUCERS: David Pupkewitz, Malcolm Kohll Focus Films Ltd (The 51st State, The Bone Snatcher, Secret Society, Crimetime)

EXECUTIVE PRODUCERS: David Pupkewitz, Edward Noeltner, Peter Dale

SCORE: Klaus Badelt (Poseidon, Pirates of the Caribbean)

DESIGNER: Mark Wilby (Red Dust
)

Pierce Brosnan will add his name to the list of Hollywood stars who have made films in South Africa as he heads to our shores for the shooting of his latest film, Heaven and Earth.


The former lead star of four James Bond films will lend his acting talent to the role of Lord Charles Somerset in a romantic drama set in 1826 in the Cape Colony.

"Heaven and Earth is the true story of James Miranda Barry who was appointed Army Surgeon at the Cape Colony and rose through the ranks to eventually become Surgeon General of the British Army," explains Brosnan in his online blog. "Only when the undertaker was laying out the body of the eminent physician was a startling discovery made - Dr. James Barry was in fact a woman."

Barry, who will be played by British actress Natasha McElhone (The Truman Show and Ronin) disguised herself as a man in order to graduate as a British doctor. She was also the first UK surgeon to perform a Caesarean section.

In an interview with the UK Guardian, McElhone described Barry as a fearless pioneer; "She was a fearless pioneer, pushing the frontiers of accepted medical practice to find new and effective ways of treating her patients, always putting her own safety and popularity at risk

"Barry defied every convention of her time. She disguised herself as a man to attend medical school, then excelled in an entirely male world, achieving the highest position possible for a military surgeon," added McElhone.

South African actors may be cast in supporting roles. Spier Films, a Cape-based production company, is auditioning for extras.


Nicole Klassen of the Cape Film Commission says Cape Town is now a popular destination for A-list stars.

"When a big feature of this size comes out to film in the city and province, there are a number of benefits. There's employment for crews, there's a spin off of actual tourism and tourism benefits and it is exposure for South Africa that we have the infrastructure to host and facilitate big Hollywood-style feature films," she told SABC News.

Oscar winning writer/director/producer Peter Jackson and his screenwriting partner Fran Walsh (who was also a member of the international panel) made the following comment on viewing the Irish submissions:

“Thank you for inviting us to be part of the celebration of the Irish film industry. It has been an honour to be on the jury for the Film and Television Awards. The films we saw were challenging and funny, passionate and lyrical - all of them unique stories, told with a singular Irish voice. Coming from a similar sized country, with limited resources, we know how important it is to protect and preserve cultural identity and that funding is always a struggle. However it is clear to us you are blessed with the most rare resource of all – an abundance of talent - both in front of and behind the camera! It was a pleasure to see such a wide range of truly adventurous film making; films that transcended the generic rules of Hollywood story-telling and succeeded on their own terms. The Irish film industry has a lot to be proud of – keep ‘em coming!”

Another member of the IFTA jury was Philip Edgar Jones, head of Endemol UK and the mastermind behind Channel 4’s Big Brother series; who said:

“When I sat down to watch 20 DVDs of Entertainment TV I thought I was in for an afternoon and evening of pure endurance, but as soon as I popped the first show in the machine and pressed play I was off on a journey that had me laughing at some really sharp comedy, totally engaged with some fabulously produced factual entertainment, full of great stories, and jigging along with some hugely entertaining music shows. All the shows had production values of the highest standard and what really shone through was a great sense of fun, warmth and affection. And I was thoroughly, thoroughly entertained.”

Also included among the IFTA Jury are; BAFTA winning producer Philippe Carcassonne (Ridicule); IFTA Lifetime member, actor & producer Pierce Brosnan; veteran indie-producer Bingham Ray; Emmy nominated sound expert Doug Murray (The Departed, Sex & The City); BAFTA winning television director Nikki Parsons (Strictly Come Dancing, SMTV); Oscar winning costume designer Trisha Biggar (Star Wars Episode 1, 2 & 3); Oscar winning make up artist Michele Burke (Dracula, Tropic Thunder); Cecelia Ahern, co-creator of hit US TV series Samantha Who?; and Ned Dowd, producer of titles such as Apocalypto, King Arthur and Veronica Guerin: Other international names serving on the IFTA Juries have been producer Ed Pressman (American Psycho), Oscar winning cinematographer Chris Menges (The Killing Fields); Oscar winning writer Christopher Hampton (Dangerous Liaisons) and Oscar winning sound designer Tom Johnson (Titanic, Terminator 2).

The 6th Annual Irish Film & Television Awards takes place on Saturday 14 February 2009 and will broadcast LIVE on RTÉ One at 9.30pm For further information about IFTA see
