Set in a remote part of Chile, the film’s story revolves around a girl’s gradual mental breakdown while vacationing with girlfriends too drunk on life to notice. No word on who has the lead, nor what part costar Michael Cera (Scott Pilgrim vs. the World)—the first attached to the project—will play.
Browning last starred in Zack Snyder’s girl-power fantasy-actioner Sucker Punch and will next be seen making her nude debut as a student-turned-prostitute in writer/director Julia Leigh’s erotically-charged mind-fuck Sleeping Beauty.
Temple can currently be seen in the sci-fi comedy Kaboom and dyking it up opposite Elvis Presley’s granddaughter Riley Keough in the teen lesbian werewolf thriller Jack & Diane. The pretty Brit will next star as teen-prostitute-turned-Catwoman-sidekick Holly Robinson in Chris Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises.
Colombian starlet Moreno, an Oscar nominated actress for her performance in 2004’s drug trafficking drama Maria Full of Grace, is coming off of Summit’s The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, in which she played Mexican vamp Maria.
Fox has released the first full-length trailer for its upcoming mystery series “Alcatraz.” Produced by J.J. Abrams (“LOST”), the show revolves around a reappearance of inmates who vanished years ago from the infamous prison without explanation.
“Alcatraz” stars Sarah Jones as Det. Rebecca Madsen, Jorge Garcia as Dr. Diego “Doc” Soto, Sam Neill as Emerson Hauser, Parminder Nagra as Lucy Banerjee, Robert Forster as Ray Archer, Santiago Cabrera as Jimmy Dickens, and Jonny Coyne as Warden Edwin James.
Personally, I can’t wait to see this. While I can’t let myself believe that it will rival the amazing story that was “LOST,” I do sense a good mystery coming on. I just wish Hurley had dropped weight for the new show. How shocking would it have been if he had returned to TV all skinny-like? But, I digress.
Mia Wasikowska (Alice in Wonderland) Tilda Swinton (The Chronicles of Narnia), and Michael Fassbender (X-Men: First Class) have been cast as vampires in art-house director Jim Jarmusch’s (Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai) upcoming “crypto-vampire love story.”
No plot details yet, but Jarmusch had this to say to the 12 people who will see the film:
I’ve been imagining this film for years. I can’t wait to now realise it with these remarkable collaborators.
Recorded Picture Company and Pandora Films are flipping the bill. Production is expected to start early next year in Germany, Morocco and Detroit.
Wasikowska, who made her horror debut in the 2007 creature-feature Rogue, is coming off director Cary Fukunaga’s critically acclaimed Jane Eyre. Swinton can be seen as the White Witch in the third Narnia offering The Chronicles of Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader.
Sundance Selects has acquired the U.S. rights to writer/director Julia Leigh’s feature film debut Sleeping Beauty. Emily Browning (Sucker Punch) stars as Lucy, a student-turned-prostitute who allows herself to be used while passed out in a drug induced stupor inside what is called a Sleeping Beauty chamber.
Jonathan Sehring, president of Sundance Selects, said today:
For the last 5 days, people throughout Cannes have been discussing Sleeping Beauty. We are thrilled to introduce Julia Leigh and her arresting debut to American audiences, and to continuing the discussion.
What Sehring failed to mention is that North American audiences will now get to see Browning in her first nude performance. According to Clatto’s very own international informant, the 22-year-old cutie goes nude throughout most of the film and delivers full-frontal thrills.
Browning began her acting career at the age of eight. While in her teens, she starred in Ghost Ship, Darkness Falls, and Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events. She scored the lead role in Dreamworks PG-13 thriller The Uninvited in 2009 and led a cast of half-naked babes in director Zach Snyder’s 2011 masterpiece Sucker Punch.
