Several additional ‘Dom Hemingway’ production stills have just been uploaded to our gallery. Be sure to check out these great pics!
In its 45th year, Nashville’s annual celebration of independent features, music films, documentaries and shorts is spilling over all its old boundaries. Now running April 17-26, The Nashville Film Festival is expanding from its typical weeklong run to the 10-day, two-weekend schedule favored by standard-setting festivals such as Toronto and Sundance.
Those seeking films with starpower and recognizable names won’t be let down by special presentations featuring Clive Owen and Juliette Binoche (Fred Schepisi’s scholastic battle-of-wits comedy-drama Words and Pictures); Tom Hardy (the character study Locke, from Eastern Promises screenwriter Steven Knight); Anna Kendrick and Lena Dunham (Joe Swanberg’s domestic comedy-drama Happy Christmas); Jude Law, Richard E. Grant and Demian Bichir (The Matador director Richard Shepard’s gangland comedy Dom Hemingway); and Toni Collette and Thomas Haden Church (Megan Griffiths’ closing-night drama Lucky Them).
Online ticketing is scheduled to begin Monday, April 7, at nashvillefilmfestival.org.
Jude is the next A-lister to be paired with Melissa McCarthy, following in the footsteps of Jason Bateman and Sandra Bullock. Jude will star in ‘Susan Cooper’ which is being developed as a potential franchise in the same tone as ‘The Heat.’ It will be a realistic comedy about a female James Bond-type. Frequent action movie hero Jason Statham is confirmed to co-star in the movie.
‘Susan Cooper’ is being directed by Paul Feig, who also directed McCarthy in Bridesmaids. Feig also wrote the script and is producing under his Feigco Entertainment. Jessie Henderson is co-producing and Daria Cercek is overseeing for Fox. The studio scheduled the film for May 22, 2015.
Eight photos of Jude as Henry V from last year’s theater production have been added to the gallery. The nominations for The Olivier Awards 2014 – the most prestigious event in the UK’s theatrical calendar – were announced a few days ago, and in the coveted category of Best Actor Jude received a nomination for his performance in Henry V. He will compete with Tom Hiddleston, Henry Goodman and Rory Kinnear for the award. The 2014 Olivier Awards ceremony will take place at the Royal Opera House on Sunday, April 13, with a full television highlights package broadcast on ITV later that evening.
Wes Anderson’s “The Grand Budapest Hotel” is a decade-spanning chase comedy featuring a star-studded cast of Anderson regulars such as Bill Murray, Owen Wilson and Jason Schwartzman, among others. What it doesn’t include is Anderson’s signature mix-tape soundtrack, replaced instead with a score from six-time Oscar nominee Alexandre Desplat. One of the signature cues Desplat wrote for Anderson is the backbone of this new clip from the film. Called “Mr. Moustafa,” the track introduces Zero, the film’s lobby boy, played by Tony Revolori, who grows up to resemble F. Murray Abraham. Check out the video below; “Grand Budapest Hotel” is out on March 7.
Dom Hemingway has been away in prison for a few years. He’s owed money, he’s got a daughter and a grandson out in the world who he needs to catch up with, and he has to get acclimated to a (criminal) society that has changed greatly in the time he’s been away. And Dom Hemingway is coming for everything full throttle.
Jude Law stars in the delightfully foul upcoming comedy “Dom Hemingway,” and to get you in the spirit of the flick, six clips have dropped online. They’re a bit naughty, with nudity and copious amounts of cursing throughout, but they also hit right on the vibe of the Richard Shepard written and directed flick. Co-starring Richard E. Grant, Demian Bichir and Emilia Clarke, “Dom Hemingway” opens on April 2nd. Watch below.
‘Dom Hemingway’ will serve as the closer for the 38th Cleveland International Film Festival. The film screens on Sunday, March 30, to conclude a festival that opens on Wednesday, March 19, with ”Not Another Happy Ending.” Everyone in attendance at any of the films showing on March 30 is invited to a Closing Night dessert reception and awards presentation program around the main-floor fountain at Tower City Center.
