Shailene Woodley’s ‘White Bird in a Blizzard’ Gets North American Distribution

Magnolia Pictures has acquired the North American distribution rights to the Shailene Woodley-starrer “White Bird in a Blizzard” and plans a theatrical release for later this year.

Gregg Araki directed from his own script, based on Laura Kasischke’s novel. The drama also stars Eva Green, Christopher Meloni, Shiloh Fernandez, Gabourey Sidibe, Thomas Jane and Angela Bassett.

The film was produced by Pascal Caucheteux, Sebastien K. Lemercier, Alix Madigan-Yorkin, Pavlina Hatoupis and Gregg Araki. Why Not Productions, Desperate Pictures, Orange Studio and Wild Bunch are the production companies on board.

Woodley stars as a college-bound teenager who is just discovering her sexuality when her mother (Green) disappears — an event that barely registers with Woodley’s character. But as time passes, she begins to come to grips with how deeply the disappearance has affected her life.

“White Bird” premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in late January. Variety‘s Peter Debruge gave the film a mixed reviewcalling it “naughty, campy and wildly uneven.”

The deal was negotiated for Magnolia by Dori Begley and Peter Van Steemburg with CAA and Wild Bunch on behalf of the filmmakers.

Eva Green: “I’m Basically An Old Lady”

Posted by M. in Feb 27,2014 with 10 Comments

Thanks to sebastian. This interview makes much more sense!

She ensnared 007, performed occult sacrifices in Arthurian England and, in her latest film, plants a lingering kiss on the still-warm lips of a man she’s just beheaded. So it makes sense that French star Eva Green is now taking me deep into the dark, twisted heart of, erm, one of Britain’s biggest department stores.

“What I do on my days off is go to Selfridges and browse around the furniture department,” she says, her faintly cut-glass (and only vaguely French) voice breaking into a giggle. “Recently I bought a cushion that I’m very happy with. This is the wild life of Eva Green. I’m basically an old lady.”

It’s a pointed reminder that – her all-black clothes and clanking silver bangles aside – the 33-year-old actress isn’t anything like the deranged Gothic heroines she’s played in Casino Royale, Camelot, Dark Shadows, Franklyn and upcoming seafaring CGI spin-off 300: Rise Of An Empire.

Still, as she swearily holds court about punching co-stars and the disappointing lack of male crotch shots in blockbuster cinema, you can’t help but think “basically an old lady” doesn’t quite cover it…

You play Artemisia in 300: Rise Of An Empire. How would you describe her to the uninitiated?

God, I mean, she’s pretty full-on. First of all, she’s a woman at the head of the Navy, which is pretty unusual. She’s ballsy and there’s something very virile about her; she’s gifted with weapons and she’s ruthless. She can’t tolerate morons or cowards. And she’s driven by, and almost blinded by, vengeance.

Did you have any say in her look? There’s a touch of Camden Market about the flowing coats…

[Laughs] With the leather? Yeah, I can see that. I always try to take a hand in the costumes because you have to be comfortable. But my hair actually got caught in one of the outfits I wore. I was in the middle of this huge fight scene and had to go, “Oh f*ck, wait a second.” Read the rest of this entry »

Eva Green ‘sex scenes left me injured’

Posted by M. in Feb 27,2014 with 1 Comment

Thanks to BigMan3000 for the link to this interview.

Eva Green had bruises after filming her sex scene in 300: Rise of an Empire.

Eva Green describes her 300: Rise of an Empire sex scene as a “fight”.

The 33-year-old actress plays warrior Artemisia in the follow-up to Zack Snyder’s 2006 action flick 300. She and co-star Sullivan Stapleton, who takes on the role of Themistocles, share a raunchy scene in the movie.

Recalling how she and Sullivan approached the explicit scene, Eva shared the gritty details.

“The thing with sex scenes is, I mean, it’s not like we’re doing all the positions in the Kama Sutra and all that, but we have to make it different. How’s it going to be filmed? Is it gratuitous? Is it part of the story? There’s lots to consider,” she told British magazine Shortlist.

“But that one, pfft, that was sex as a fight. I had bruises all over my body afterwards, and I smacked Sullivan… Oh, you don’t need to tell him [to go for it]. He’s not scared, he’s this big, strong Aussie and he’s proud of it. He’s a real man. Which made the fact that he had to have the hair on his chest waxed off even funnier.”

Artemisia is the Achaemenid Queen of Caria. Eva found her alter ego to be a unique character who oozes strength and confidence.

“God, I mean, she’s pretty full-on. First of all, she’s a woman at the head of the Navy, which is pretty unusual,” Eva mused.

“She’s ballsy and there’s something very virile about her; she’s gifted with weapons and she’s ruthless. She can’t tolerate morons or cowards. And she’s driven by, and almost blinded by, vengeance.”

To get into the mind-set of such a driven character Eva had to prepare thoroughly. Being one of the few females in the film the brunette beauty enjoyed the testosterone-filled atmosphere.

“The sword-fighting, the training – I’d never done that before, so I thought it was a great opportunity. I did proper training with the guys and I loved it,” she recalled.

“It was like being in the Army, but in a good way. I’m not a coordinated person, so it was tough. Sword-fighting is very precise – it’s like a dance. I trained for three months.”

Io Donna Interview – Eva Green: “Non sono io che mi spoglio, è il mio personaggio”

Posted by M. in Feb 25,2014 with 2 Comments

Thanks to sebastian and daphne for the link. Much appreciated. I’ll be adding scans very soon. :)

Recitare senza veli non è un problema per l’attrice francese, eroina sanguinaria e tentatrice nel kolossal “300: l’alba di un impero”. E neppure la forma fisica: “Scelgo i film che mi costringono ad andare in palestra”

di Paola De Carolis – 31 gennaio 2014

L’amore? mi stravolge. Non sono una persona che fa le cose a metà. Quando mi innamoro, do tutta me stessa». Seduta sul divano del Claridge’s Hotel a Londra, Eva Green rilascia dichiarazioni da romantica fine Ottocento. La guardi e trovi in lei la sintesi perfetta tra una languida dama dell’altro secolo e una punk ribelle e modernissima.
I lineamenti delicati e la pelle liscia come porcellana spiccano sotto i capelli scuri; gli stivali grossi, gli attillatissimi jeans neri, gli anelli e i bracciali vistosi le danno un tocco dark. Trent’anni, una manciata di film di successo e un ruolo che ha dilatato la sua fama: Vesper Lynd in Casino Royale, capitolo fondamentale nella saga infinita di 007. Una Bond Girl con i fiocchi che su Internet continua ad avere un folto numero di seguaci, ma l’etichetta le va stretta. «Chiariamo una cosa: in quel film la vera Bond Girl era lui, 007, Daniel Craig. Era lui, infatti, a svestirsi e a uscire dall’acqua mezzo nudo».
Eva Green graffia, ma sa anche prendersi in giro. Forse è per questo che le viene bene il ruolo della tentatrice sensuale e cattiva. A marzo arriva sugli schermi nel ruolo di Artemisia, fredda e sanguinaria comandante della marina persiana nel film 300: l’alba di un impero, seguito della pellicola tratta dal romanzo a fumetti di Frank Miller che è stata campione d’incassi. È un film dove le teste che rotolano – e sono centinaia – finiscono per non fare più impressione, come i litri di sangue che sorgano da ferite mortali. Un’apoteosi digitale.

Eva, ha visto il film?
No, l’ha visto il mio agente. «Quanto sesso!» mi ha detto. «Quanta nudità».

Le fa effetto sentire critiche del genere?
Non sono io che mi spoglio, è il personaggio, e devo dire che un film come 300, che ha richiesto molto lavoro fisico, è un bell’antidoto alla mia statica vita quotidiana. Sono un po’ introversa, quasi scontrosa, direi.

Davvero?
Sì, e peggioro con l’età. Uscire non mi viene naturale, sono un po’ asociale. E pigra. 300 mi ha costretto a mettermi in forma. Read the rest of this entry »
