HeyGuys.co.uk — On the cusp of its debut to the world out in Toronto, the first clip from Charlie Stratton’s anticipated Therese has launched online, giving an early look at what will soon be heading into cinemas followings its festival bow. Elizabeth Olsen leads a stellar cast as the eponymous Thérèse Raquin in Stratton’s adaptation of the classic novel, with Tom Felton, Oscar Isaac, and Jessica Lange starring alongside her.
This bold adaptation of Émile Zola’s sordid novel of adultery and murder in 19th-century Paris places the talented Elizabeth Olsen in the title role, engaging our sympathies and our revulsion in equal measure, until the satisfyingly grim finale.
Starring alongside the leading quartet will be Shirley Henderson, Mackenzie Crook, Matt Lucas, and John Kavanaugh. Stratton is making his feature directorial debut, and is writing from his own script, adapting Émile Zola’s 1867 novel, Thérèse Raquin.
Therese will be making its debut at TIFF in a few weeks’ time, and is set to be released in the US on September 27th. No word yet on a UK release date, but hopefully it won’t be long before it crosses the Atlantic. In the meantime, here’s the first clip from the anticipated film. Smart money says this will be one of the most talked-about debuts at the festival.
A new still featuring Oscar Isaac and Elizabeth Olsen from Therese has been added to our gallery. You can check the photo out below. Click on the image to redirect to our photo gallery and see it in high quality.
Set in the lower echelons of 1860s Paris, Thérèse Raquin (Elizabeth Olsen), a sexually repressed beautiful young woman, is trapped into a loveless marriage to her sickly cousin, Camille (Tom Felton), by her domineering aunt, Madame Raquin (Jessica Lange). Therese spends her days confined behind the counter of a small shop and her evenings watching Madame play dominoes with an eclectic group. After she meets her husband’s alluring friend, Laurent (Oscar Isaac), she embarks on an illicit affair that leads to tragic consequences.
According to IndieWire, Oscar has been a very busy man so he will no longer be playing Pablo Escobar in “The Ballad of Pablo Escobar”. The movie will still go on, just not with Oscar as the lead. You can read the full article below.
One thing we’re really excited to see over the next year or so is the blooming of Oscar Isaac into a full-blown movie star. The actor’s been stealing the show for a few years now in films like “Body Of Lies,” “Robin Hood,” “Drive” and “The Bourne Legacy,” but looks ready to move to the next stage up; he’s tipped for awards for his lead role in the Coen Brothers’ “Inside Llewyn Davis” (read our review from Cannes here), and he’s got a number of other lead roles on the way, including “Therese,” “The Two Faces Of January” and “Ex Machina.”
In fact, Isaac’s busy enough that he’s been forced to drop a project he had on his slate. Back in May, Isaac was announced as playing legendary drug dealer Pablo Escobar in a then-untitled project written by Black List veteran Matt Aldrich, set to be directed by “The Lincoln Lawyer” helmer Brad Furman. The good news, via Latino Review, is that the film is still ticking forward, now titled “The Ballad Of Pablo Escobar,” and planning to shoot next month in Colombia. The bad is that Isaac is out of the project for unknown reasons.
Furman & co haven’t been hanging around when it comes to finding a replacement, though. Apparently, “Elysium” star Wagner Moura was at one point lined up to take over, but he’s no longer in the running. Now, according to the site, John Leguizamo is one of two names in contention to the part, with the actor (who appears in “Kick Ass 2” this week) even posting evidence of a prosthetic-aided screen test on his Twitter account.
It’s a little surprising that Leguizamo is considered a name big enough to carry financing for something like this, but maybe there are some bigger co-stars lined up for the project. Whether Leguizamo or the other party get it, it’s in something of a race: Benicio Del Toro is playing Escobar in the upcoming “Paradise Lost,” while Netflix are developing a TV series about the dealer with “Elite Squad” director Jose Padilha, and Antoine Fuqua has a project brewing too. But with “The Ballad Of Pablo Escobar” planning to shoot in September, we’ll likely hear about casting on this one sooner rather than later.
I’ve added two new movie stills of Oscar Isaac in “The Two Faces of January” which is still in post-production but it’s said to release in January of 2014 in France. “The Two Faces of January” which also stars Kirsten Dunst, Viggo Mortensen, and Prometheus Aleifer is a thriller centered on a con artist, his wife, and a stranger who try to flee a foreign country after one of them is caught up in the murder of a police officer. You can check out the two stills below. One is high quality, the other is medium. Click on the thumbnail to redirect to the album.
I previously had screen captures under our Production Stills albums but I’ve moved those over to Trailer Screencaps instead. Luckily, I was able to find high resolution stills of Oscar Isaac in his recent film Inside Lleywn Davis, which are now added to the gallery. There are 5 new stills, but you can see four of them below!
Yahoo.com — César-nominated French actress Louise Bourgoin will join Oscar Isaac and Garret Hedlund in Mojave, the thriller to be directed by William Monahan from his original screenplay.
The film is about a desolated, violent artist who escapes into the desert and encounters a worthy antagonist in the form of a brilliant, homicidal drifter. Bourgoin is best known for the French films La fille de Monaco and L’amour dure trois ans. Monahan’s Henceforth Pictures will co-produce the film with Atlas Independent.
