Samuel L. Jackson is in talks with Fox to come on board Tim Burton’s “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children” alongside Eva Green and Asa Butterfield.

Chernin Entertainment is producing “Peculiar Children” and has slotted the fantasy-actioner for release on March 4, 2016.

Burton will direct from a script by Jane Goldman, who adapted the Ransom Rigg novel about a teenager who finds himself on an island where he must help protect a group of orphans with special powers from creatures out to destroy them.

Jackson has been filming Quentin Tarantino’s “The Hateful Eight.” He’s repped by ICM Partners and Anonymous Content.

From getting her acting start in Bertolucci film The Dreamers, Eva Green has spent the last decade on some of Hollywood’s biggest movie sets working with Ridley Scott and Robert Rodriguez to becoming a Bond girl. As her latest turn in White Bird in a Blizzard makes its debut on Blu-Ray, here’s a look at three Eva Green performances that lend to her standing as a modern femme fatale.

 

1. Vesper Lynd, Casino Royale

In what is arguably the best James Bond outing ever, Green is her most effective as the only woman to ever truly gain 007’s affection. Vesper Lynd is a woman torn between right or wrong as she is forced to play for both sides. But her love for Bond is real, Green able to switch from smouldering to caring with ease before breaking the action hero’s heart. As an unconventional Bond girl this not only made Green a star to be noticed, but made Casino Royale what it is – a Bond film with heart.

2. Ava Lord, Sin City: A Dame To Kill For

Frank Miller’s favourite Sin City creation came to life in a sequel nearly 10 years in the making, and Green revels in the neo-noir world of his imagining. Her turn as the dame of the title is the centrepiece of the film as she controls everyone and everything. Green is her most seductive as Ava, luring hapless men into a false sense of love and security. It’s safe to say she wasn’t too afraid to get her clothes off in the name of art either.

3. Angelique Bouchard, Dark Shadows

While the film as a whole was a bit of a jumbled effort by Tim Burton, Green is given a lot of room to ham up the femme fatale stereotype as Angelique, the witch obsessed with Johnny Depp’s Barnabas. She plays Angelique as a straightshooter with conviction, a businesswoman who knows what she wants. But her pining for Barnabas brings a lighter, near-comical side to the character, a point of difference for Green who is otherwise used to dramatic roles.

A sparkling idea from any point of view….

CAMPARI & SELTZ

Milan, around 1915. This was the most popular drink in the Bar Camparino, opened by Davide Campari himself. It had a revolutionary pumping system that sent a recent invention right up to the counter: soda water.

“It is important to feel loved by the photographer or the director, so you are able to give as much as possible. I felt like Julia really appreciated me. I played several characters and it was fun. I didn’t have to do loads of homework or learn lots of lines, and to be surrounded by passionate people without any pressure was a joy. Truly, Julia was my inspiration.” – Eva Green on Julia Fullerton-Batten

 

“What was so refreshing with Eva was every time she came on set, she totally performed, knew the story behind the cocktail and it just made my job so much easier.  Campari approached me to ask if I wanted to photograph the calendar for 2015 and I was like, ‘yes!’ – I didn’t know who the muse would be, but I was over the moon when I found out that it was Eva, because I didn’t want to work with someone typical. I think Eva has something quite amazing about her. She was the perfect choice for the calendar.” – Julia Fullerton-Batten on Eva Green

French actress and Model; Eva Green is most notably known for filming along side Daniel Craig in Casino Royale. The one women to have stolen his heart. Here she talks about what it was like being the leading lady for the latest Campari Calendar.

SA: Congratulations on becoming the leading lady for Campari, How do you think the style of the brand has evolved over the last 150 years?

Eva: Thank you. It was a huge honor. The Campari Calendar is renowned all over the world and is a work of art that I myself have admired for many years. Some incredibly talented and beautiful women have starred in previous editions, from Uma Thurman and Penelope Cruz to Jessica Alba, so I’m really honoured to have been part of that history too. It is such a privilege to work with a brand like Campari, which carries with it such a rich and interesting history, yet remains to be timeless with some of the best-loved cocktails remaining on trend even today. I think that says a lot for the styling of the brand too in that it has obviously evolved with the ages but at every point has remained contemporary and on trend – this is probably why it is still such a worldwide icon today.

SA: How did you feel about this year’s theme? Why do you think you were chosen to star in this year’s Calendar?
Eva: This year’s theme ‘Mythology Mixology’ had me hooked on the project from day one. The whole Calendar is very much a visual narrative, revealing the creation stories behind 12 of Campari’s best loved classic cocktails. As an actress, I am very used to bringing scripts and stories to life through characters, so perhaps that’s why they chose me. Unlike with TV or film though, we had to capture the stories in just one shot. There is something very intriguing and complex in that but Julia’s (the photographer) vision and skill is what really brought this project to life.

SA: What does the Campari Calendar mean to you?
Eva: For me, the project was about so much more than simply having my picture taken. I for one learned so much from this shoot and it was so interesting to delve into the history behind the Campari brand and its cocktails. It’s made me think about the art of telling stories very differently. Like I say, I am very used to recreating stories as an actress, but working with Julia on this shoot opened my eyes to the art of photography as a story-telling platform. It really is a work of art and I hope everyone loves it as much as I do.

SA: As an actor, who do you look to most for inspiration when you are playing a role?
Eva: I look to actors and filmmakers who inspire me. I’ve worked with Tim Burton before and am about to work with him again – he inspires me a lot.

8. “The Dreamers”
An extremely polarizing NC-17 film upon its release, Bernardo Bertolucci’s wantonly naive — perhaps revisionist — paean to his ’60s counter-culture heyday is a valentine to the thrilling rush of New Wave cinema and an impetuous kind of sonic youth. It can be a little heavy-handed if you’re not a devout quixotic cineaste (but can you really hate on references to “Mouchette” and “Bande à part“?). But drunk on idealism, it throbs with erotic voltage and is fraught with romantic spontaneity — and it’s a film that is done wonders by repeat viewings and is deeply in need of a second glance. Featuring excellent performances by its three leads (especially a deliciously wicked and sultry Eva Green; the boys are Michael Pitt and Louis Garrel) the trio play disaffected youths insulated in a palatial Paris apartment, experimenting with sexuality, exploring abstract notions, philosophy and challenging social mores while the world outside is pregnant with unrest and discordant anomie. Its rich guilelessness is in essence its strength (the title says its all), as the film voluptuously (and profanely) lurches forward like an ardent molotov cocktail to the chest.
