Sin Nombre director to do Jane Eyre

Posted by LiveFor on October 21, 2009

caryThis is a bit of a surprise. Cary Fukunaga (Sin nombre) is in advanced negotiations to direct a feature adaptation of Charlotte Bronte’s Jane Eyre for Ruby Films according to Variety.

Moira Buffini has written the script. Buffini is fast becoming one of the U.K.’s hottest scribes thanks to her adaptation of Posy Simmonds’ graphic novel “Tamara Drewe” for director Stephen Frears and her own upcoming vampire project “Byzantium,” based on her stage play, “A Vampire Story.”

This new version will play up the gothic elements of the classic 19th century story about a governess who falls in love with her surly employer who has a dark secret.

The book is one of the most iconic in English literature and has been the subject of numerous previous adaptations. The BBC turned the book into a miniseries that won three Emmys in 2007, while the most recent feature, made in 1996, was directed by Franco Zeffirelli and starred Charlotte Gainsbourg (Antichrist).

Ellen Page was previously attached to star as Jane but left the project some time ago.

The helmer has been much in demand following his best director prize at this year’s Sundance for feature debut “Sin nombre,” a gritty gang drama set in Latin America.

Lars von Trier’s Antichrist to spawn a Video Game?

Posted by LiveFor on June 18, 2009

Just had to check the date. It is definitely not 1st April so this may in fact be true.

Antichrist is the new movie from Lars Von Trier it was met with laughter and outrage by critics in Cannes.

A couple (Willem Dafoe, Charlotte Gainsbourg) mourning the loss of their child retreat to a cabin in the woods, where they soon encounter strange, terrifying occurrences. Cruelty between the sexes ensues.

Now according to /Film it is being turned into a video game. An article on (Google translation) announced the games development.

Morten Iversen, who wrote the Hitman games, is listed as ‘game developer’ on the main Zentropa website.

The game, called Eden (which was the name of the cottage in the film) , will be a first-person thriller/adventure game that apparantly invites players to confront their fears. Willem Dafoe is meant to be reprising his role in voice-over, though the game will not replicate the film, picking up afterward instead.

The experience will be “strong and very personal,” “controversial” and that it “…must be your own personal hell – a bit like a nightmare version of Myst. It will also apparantly pull information from the net, such as news reports and videos, and add them to the gaming experience

“They are based on what fears you have (part of the questions you answer before starting the game). So if you suffer from arachnophobia the articles are likely to contain something about spiders and what not.”

Eden will be a PC title, and while early in development is planned for a release within a year, potentially either on the Antichrist DVD or as a download.

It does sound like it could be quite an interesting game, but it doesn seem like an odd film to base it on. Is it real or not? Would you play it?

Lars von Trier’s Antichrist may be the work of the Devil himself

Posted by LiveFor on May 17, 2009

I had been looking forward to seeing Lars von Trier’s new film, Antichrist. The trailer, posters and photos looked pretty cool and they had an excellent style to them. Plus it was naked people being saucy in a spooky looking woods.

However, the film has been shown at Cannes and it may not be as good as we thought. Here is what Jeffrey Wells over at Hollywood Elsewhere had to say about it.

There’s no way Antichrist isn’t a major career embarassment for costars Willem Dafoe and Charlotte Gainsbourg, and a possible career stopper for Von Trier.

It’s an out-and-out disaster — one of the most absurdly on-the-nose, heavy-handed and unintentionally comedic calamities I’ve ever seen in my life. On top of which it’s dedicated to the late Russian director Andrei Tarkovsky, whose rotted and decomposed body is now quite possibly clawing its way out of the grave to stalk the earth, find an axe and slay Von Trier in his bed.

Here’s a portion of Von Trier’s “director’s confession” from the press book:

“Two years ago I suffered from depression. Everything, no matter what, seems unimportant, trivial. I couldn’t work. Six months later, jsut as an exercise, I wrote a script. It was a kind of therapy, but also a search, a test to see if would ever make another film.

“The script was finished and filmed without much enthusiasm, made as it was using about half of my physical and intellectual capacity. Scenes were added for no reason. Images were composed free of logic or dramatic thinking. They often came from dreams I was having at the time, or dreams I’d had earlier in my life.

“In any case I offer no excuses for Antichrist. Other than my absolute belief in the film — the most important film of my entire career!”

A man whom I’ve admired and respected for many years has lost his mind for the time being, or at last lost it while he was writing and shooting the film.

Have you seen it yet? Do you agree with Mr Wells?
