April 25th, 2013   M. The Salvation 10 Comments

My computer broke and I’ve been unable to update the site. I guess Stef has been way too busy with her offline life, but here we go. Better late than never. 😉

Yet another NEW Eva movie is in the works! It’s called The Salvation and it’s currently filming in South Africa.

Here’s what we know so far:

The English-language drama from “The King Is Alive” director Kristian Levring also features “Hannibal” star Mads Mikkelsen and Mikael Persbrandt of “In a Better World.”

French actress Eva Green and Americans Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Watchmen) and Michael Raymond-James (Jack Reacher) have joined the cast of The Salvation, a Nordic saga-inspired Western from Danish director Kristian Levring (The King Is Alive), which is shooting in South Africa.

THe English-language drama stars Mads Mikkelsen, who stars as infamous psychologist/cannibal Hannibal Lecter in NBC’s critically acclaimed crime drama Hannibal, as a peaceful settler in 1870s America forced to carry out violent revenge.

Green, who headlined the Starz fantasy miniseries Camelot and appeared in Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows, has a full dance card at the moment, with roles in two highly anticipated sequels: Sin City 2 and 300: Rise of an Empire. Salvation reunites her with the Danish Mikkelsen following their work together on the James Bond feature Casino Royale (2006).

Other big names added to the cast include acclaimed British actor Jonathan Pryce (Pirates of the Caribbean); Sweden’s Mikael Persbrandt, star of Susanne Bier’s Oscar-winning In a Better World and a supporting role in the final two entries in Peter Jackson’s Hobbit trilogy; Scottish actor Douglas Henshall (The Eagle); and French soccer star-turned-actor Eric Cantona (Looking for Eric).

The film’s script was co-written by Levring and prolific Danish writer-director Anders Thomas Jensen — who co-wrote The King Is Alive as well as Levring’s most recent feature, Fear Me Not, and collaborated with Bier on In a Better World and her latest, All You Need Is Love.

The story centers on John (Mikkelsen), a settler whose family is brutally murdered. John kills the killer, drawing the wrath of local gang leader Delarue, and the peaceful farmer is forced to fight the outlaws to save his town.

    Yay! Don’t worry about it Mariana, I wasn’t *that* antsy for an update!

    “The Salvation” sounds fascinating, more interesting to me than “White Bird…” and Sin City 2. I love a lot of the non-traditional westerns, and a western with Nordic themes sounds awesome. Eva’s been reteaming with a lot of her previous co-stars lately (Juno Temple, Chris Meloni, Marton Csokas, and now Mads Mikkelson), which is fun. Supposedly, this will likely debut at Cannes 2014.

    Nice find, George. This URL worked for me: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bUb0oV6JzBY
    I’m amazed that there’s already footage out for this film. It’s what, 2 weeks into filming? The footage isn’t spoilerish per se, but it does give some strong clues about Eva’s role in this movie.
