Eva: Dream to work with Tim Burton

Posted by M. in Oct 05,2011 with Comments Off

Eva Green has said it was her dream to work with director Tim Burton on his new film Dark Shadows.

The former Bond girl appears with Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, Michelle Pfeiffer and Chloe Moretz in the director’s film adaptation of the 60s supernatural series.

Eva revealed at the premiere of her new film Perfect Sense: “We finished shooting last Friday. It was like a dream – I always wanted to work with Tim Burton.”

She added: “The script is very funny and dark.”

In Perfect Sense Eva plays a scientist who begins a love affair with a chef, played by Ewan McGregor, at the same time as the world is swept by an epidemic of a terrible disease which causes the loss of the senses one at a time.

Eva said: “It could sound very depressing as a storyline but it’s actually very uplifting. It’s like a metaphor for falling love. When we fall in love we lose our senses. So I found it quite optimistic really.”

Sick bucket on standby for filming ‎

Posted by M. in Oct 04,2011 with Comments Off

Bond Girl Eva Green has revealed that a sick bucket was on standby on the set of her new film Perfect Sense.

The French beauty wore a figure-hugging lace Pucci gown to the premiere of the film in London’s Curzon Mayfair, where she was joined by co-star Ewan McGregor and director David Mackenzie.

Green plays a scientist who begins a love affair with a chef (McGregor) at the same time as the world is swept by an epidemic of a terrible disease which causes the loss of the senses one at a time. Before losing taste they are struck by an uncontrollable hunger and devour anything they can.

Green revealed: “That was quite intense. I had to eat flowers, lipstick, and toothpaste. But we had a bucket next to us… It was bonkers. But I didn’t die.”

Meanwhile, McGregor trained with professional chefs in Glasgow for the role.

He said: “We had to look like we knew what we were doing. It was a top end kitchen so we had to look like we knew what were we doing technically. So that was important to look at what makes a chef look like he’s a good chef.”

McGregor admitted he hadn’t kept up his cooking skills since.

But the Moulin Rouge star did say he would be keen to play Sir Elton John in his new musical biopic Rocketman, after he was tipped for the part.

McGregor said: “I’d be delighted – send me the script Elton.”

Perfect Sense also stars McGregor’s uncle Denis Lawson, the director’s brother Alastair McKenzie and Trainspotting‘s Ewen Bremner, who all attended the screening.

    Bewitching and bewildering

    Eva Green is French, but an Anglophile who lives in London. She plays wild women, but says she hates shedding her clothes. She’s been the face of Dior, but spurns Hollywood.

    Perfect Sense is in cinemas nationwide in the UK from October 7th.

    Niki Caro to Co-Write and Direct a Film About Opera Legend Maria Callas

    Posted by Stef in Sep 28,2011 with 1 Comment

    Thanks to George, edenLiao and Antigonus for the links. There is no official confirmation yet on whether or not Eva will be a part of the film, but we will post more information as it becomes available.

    The project is based on the book “Too Proud, Too Fragile” by Italian author Alfonso Signorini.

    Niki Caro is writing and directing Callas, a new film about the legendary opera star Maria Callas, based on the book Too Proud, Too Fragile by Alfonso Signorini, who will also take a writing credit on the film.

    The Rome-based De Angelis Group is producing.

    The New Zealand-born Caro, director of such films as Whale Rider, North Country and The Vintner’s Luck, is repped by ICM, which brokered the deal on her behalf and also is representing North American rights on the project.

    Callas’ dramatic life and career has been the subject of a number of documentaries and narrative features. Franco Zeffirelli focused on her later years in 2002’s Callas Forever. Actresses playing Callas also appeared in the TV movies Jackie Bouvier Kennedy Onassis and Onassis: The Richest Man in the World.

    “We fully expect Callas to become one of the most important films in the De Angelis dossier as the source material provided by Mr. Signorini’s book is the most in-depth to date about the life of the controversial opera star. We’ve put together a very strong production team from Niki Caro on to bring this story to screen,” said the De Angelis Group’s Andrea Zoso.


    Johnny Depp’s true ‘Dark Shadows’ vampire revealed!

    Thanks to Isabell for the link. Eva looks stunning as Angelique. Can’t wait for more photos to surface.

    Behold the real visage of Johnny Depp’s vampire from Dark Shadows!

    Last week, long-range paparazzi shots of the actor wearing ghostly white makeup, large sunglasses and a pulled down fedora made fans of the original 1966-71 supernatural soap opera bristle nervously, with complaints he looked simply too strange.

    Nevermind that he’s playing a 200-year-old vampire, which is strange enough.

    As you can see from this cast shot, Depp’s bloodsucking pater familias Barnabas Collins actually borrows heavily from the aged-little boy look of original Dark Shadows star Jonathan Frid — not that anyone would be happy to see this guy show up as your prom date either.
