March 16th, 2015   G Article, General, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children Comments Off on Kim Dickens Joins Tim Burton’s ‘Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children’

By Justin Kroll

 

Kim Dickens has rounded out the cast of 20th Century Fox’s adaptation of the classic novel “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children,” which Tim Burton is directing.

 Eva Green, Asa Butterfield, Ella Purnell, Allison Janney and Samuel L. Jackson also star.

The film is based on the Ransom Riggs novel, following a teenager, played by Butterfield, who finds himself transported to an island where he must help protect a group of orphans with special powers from creatures out to destroy them. Green will play the title character, who acts as a guardian for these orphans.

Chernin Entertainment is producing, with Jane Goldman penning the script.

Production is currently under way, and the pic is set to bow March 4, 2016.

While she has stayed busy on the film front, Dickens broke out from her roles on TV that included HBO’s “Deadwood” and “Treme” and Netflix’s “House of Cards.” She recently landed a starring role on the upcoming “The Walking Dead” companion series.

Dickens was last seen in David Fincher’s “Gone Girl,” which was also a Fox production. She is repped by Gersh.

March 13th, 2015   G Article, General, Penny Dreadful, Television Comments Off on 7 Things You Need to Know About ‘Penny Dreadful’ Season 2, From New Villains to Dance Scenes

By Ben Travers

The cast and creator of “Penny Dreadful” sat down for a 30-minute panel discussion at their Winter TCA presentation in January. The group included John Logan, Josh Hartnett, Timothy Dalton, Helen McCrory and Harry Treadaway. After showcasing a new trailer to kick things off (see below), the group of five did their best to tease Season 2 without spoiling. We shall try to do the same.

SPOILERS 
ahead for the first season of “Penny Dreadful.”

1) “This season we embrace witchcraft.”

So said series creator John Logan when discussing what’s to come in the second season of “Penny Dreadful,” Showtime’s hit horror series from the Oscar-winning screenwriter. Though he didn’t give away too much new information — a wise move for a series with some enticing twists — he did expound upon the new villain of the series, new characters, and what the rest of the main characters would be going through. “Last year we set the characters on the board, and this year we get to play with them,” Logan said. The game itself? Witchcraft, which Logan said will be a major part of the new season. 

2) “Penny Dreadful’s” new villain is uniquely human. 

One big reason to “embrace witchcraft” in Season 2 is the new antagonist, Madam Kali (aka Evelyn Poole). Played by Helen McCrory, Kali appeared in a few episodes last year, perhaps most notably as the “impersonator” who set things off for Vanessa during the show-stopping seance scene. Now, she’s the big baddie, and one wielding considerable power. Logan talked about how vampires were the main adversary last year, but that he wanted a human villain in Season 2. He’d had this planned out for a while, too, cutting a scene with McCrory from the first season that better illustrated her upcoming value (but didn’t fit in the edit in the end). You can see some of what’s in store on her end in the trailer below, summed up in one quote: “When Lucifer fell, he did not fall alone.” 

3) Josh Hartnett’s Ethan will be hunted as much as he hunts.

One of the biggest reveals in last year’s season finale was Ethan Chandler’s secret identity, so to speak. Ethan is a werewolf — or so we thought. “He’s a wolf man,” Hartnett casually corrected. “That’s what John likes to call him.” More importantly, Logan said Ethan will be hunted more than he hunts in Season 2. A Scotland Yard inspector, a new character played by Doug Hodge, will be hot on Ethan’s metaphorical and literal tail. All the while, Ethan will be discovering who he is — Logan was adamant in pointing out Ethan doesn’t yet know he’s a werewolf, and discovering as much will be an emotional journey unto its own for the already conflicted American gunslinger. 

4) “There’s a major dancing component to this season.”

Logan gave out plenty of juicy details, many of which fit the grisly tone of the new trailer, but he was also asked to explain one of the trailer’s only moments of bliss. There’s a scene where Vanessa (Eva Green) dances with the Creature (Rory Kinnear) in what in passing seems like a lovely, touching moment. Turns out there’s much more like it to come. 

“There’s a major dancing component to this season,” Logan said. “He’s composed three waltzes for us. They’re all unique to the characters. There’s a Vanessa and Ethan waltz — which is a larger waltz than with the other characters — there’s a Creature waltz. Seeing what we can do with these characters is very exciting.”

5) If you thought Season 1 was light on gore, get ready for a bloody Season 2.

No one said anything about amping up the classic horror aspects — gore, blood, violence — but the climactic moment of the trailer certainly indicates an emphasis on blood, one way or another. Logan also noted how the directors he worked with this season added their own style to the episodes, especially since the pilot’s director (and tone-setter for the series) J.A. Bayona did not return for Season 2. Change is coming, even if Logan argues “it’s still ‘Penny Dreadful.'”

6) This is the “make or break” season for “Penny Dreadful.”

Logan talked about how difficult it was for him to find the right tone for his show in the first season. “I was immensely proud of the first season,” Logan said. “It was a very, very challenging target to hit, which is a horror show that will break your heart. I believe that’s what we accomplished. I think there’s more pressure, more tension this season. Last year, our heroes were hunters, and this season they are the prey.”

Logan went on to mention the characters are brought closer together in Season 2 thanks to higher stakes. “We sort of unleashed hell this season, so it is our make-or-break season, and we’re going for it.” 

7) “Penny Dreadful” premieres May 3 at 10pm. 

Set your DVRs accordingly!

There are few experiences in modern cinema quite as intoxicating as watching Eva Green behaving badly. Whether she’s an American housewife on the verge of a nervous breakdown in White Bird in a Blizzard, or fixing those deep turquoise eyes on her oppressors in the revenge western The Salvation, or wrestling demons in the TV series Penny Dreadful, it’s impossible to tear your gaze away.

Green is an enigma, hiding in plain sight. She’s a femme fatale with as many female admirers as male ones, a Bond girl who all but ate Bond for breakfast. Her beauty is of the troubling sort that drives prim conformists mad – they’re forever wanting her to fix her teeth, go easy on the eye make-up, tone down the witchiness and look like everyone else.

March 10th, 2015   G Campari, Interview 1 Comment

By Anastasia Nemchenok

 

ELLE met up with Eva Green in London, where the Campari 2015 calendar (featuring the actress) was launched.

 

ELLE: Tell us about the work process on the Calendar.

Eva Green: The work process was fun and interesting. Most importantly, I didn’t feel any pressure from Campari, which is a rarity when you work for a commercial project.  

 

ELLE: How was it working with Julia Fullerton-Batten, the first woman photographer in the history of Campari calendars? 

EG: Julia is a real artist. She had never worked for a fashion shoot before, but she had organized everything perfectly. Usually it takes time to get used to someone’s working style, but this time – boom – everything was shot very quickly. An actress needs to feel appreciation from a director or a photographer in order to perform her best. Thanks to Julia each shot is like a painting.

 

ELLE: Where did the shoot take place?

EG: In Budapest, Hungary.

 

March 10th, 2015   G Article, General, Review Comments Off on Michael Pitt’s Response To People Who Ask Him About Eva Green

On the penultimate day of the rewrite, I finally brought up Eva Green. Pitt was sitting on the chair, the sun was setting in one of the windows, and Madison Street, which was three stories below us, was clogged with cars. The Dreamers was Green’s first movie, and the first of the many sex scenes in her career—the most outrageous of which is in 300: Rise of an Empire. In a sense—at least a cinematic sense—Pitt deflowered her. (“You are my first love, my first great love,” Green says to Pitt in The Dreamers, after fucking him on a couch.) “What is she like in person?” I asked him with a tone that I thought perfectly concealed my fascination with the actress. Pitt, who had heard me sing nonstop praises for his performance of the Kurt Cobain–like character in Gus Van Sant’s Last Days, looked at me for a moment and, as if finally realizing that my devotion to him was lower than the one I had for his costar in The Dreamers, said with almost cool cruelty: “You and every other man wants to know that.” I never brought the matter up again.

My fascination with Green is not, however, as sordid as Pitt’s response implied. I admire her mostly on a cinematic plane. She has a face, and particularly eyes—big green eyes—that can communicate all the needed information about her character’s soul or emotional state. One fact that separates film from theater: Acting is less important than visage. On a stage, which is always distant, a face means comparatively little; on a movie screen, a face is almost everything. Indeed, it is precisely this fact that enabled Green to deliver such a great performance in the new and excellent Danish western The Salvation without saying a single word through the entire film.

March 5th, 2015   G Interview, Site Exclusive, The Salvation 1 Comment

The Salvation is director Kristian Levring’s epic Western tale of revenge and justice. It tells the story of Jon (played by Mads Mikkelsen), a peaceful American settler of Danish decent who kills his family’s murderers which unleashes the fury of a notorious gang leader (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) whose plans of revenge and mayhem is almost foiled by his mute sister-in-law Madeleine (Eva Green). Jon’s cowardly fellow townspeople then betray him, forcing him to hunt down the outlaws alone. Here we talk to veteran South African actor Sean Cameron Michael on his thoughts on his career, filming in South Africa, The Salvation, his current hit tv show Black Sails and his favorite Eva Green project.

seancameronmichael01

You’ve played a variety of characters on various mediums (theatre, film, television, shorts and commercials) and genres. Do you have a preferred medium or genre to work on? Do you have a particular favorite project or character of yours?

Yes, I’ve been very fortunate to work on many interesting and exciting projects over the past 30 years or so.  Each medium, whether it be theatre (and the instantaneous energy of a live audience) or on-camera work (TV series, films, docudramas, music videos, etc), they all have their own unique requirement, challenges and style.  I’ve been acting and performing all my life.  It’s what I love and I’m truly grateful for every opportunity that I am given.  It inspires and fulfills me immensely to work with new and aspiring directors and writers, to help bring their creations to life.  At the same time, I’m continually learning and experiencing, working with highly regarded filmmakers and artistes who have reached the pinnacle of success. It’s hard to choose a favorite.  Each experience is special and exhilarating actually.

MI-TO

Italy, around 1870. Campari bitter (made in Milan) came together with red vermouth (produced in Turin). It is hardly surprising that the name MI-TO sounds exactly like the Italian word for “myth’.

February 26th, 2015   G Article, Interview Comments Off on Eva Green: I’m a Juice Machine

Eva Green isn’t sure she can keep juicing up in the long run.

The French actress always looks incredible and even won the role of Bond girl Vesper Lynd in Quantum of Solace. To keep her body in check, she has a routine of exercising and cleansing with liquid meals.

“I run for half an hour a day and do stretches,” she revealed to German magazine Jolie.

“I’ve also discovered fresh vegetable juices. I know this sounds very LA, but I’m totally on the juicing bandwagon. Not sure if this will last. We’ll see!”

But Eva isn’t too tough on herself. Just like most other people, the gorgeous brunette has a few diet weaknesses.

“I don’t want to seem like a total alcoholic, but I do love a glass of something in the evenings,” she smiled. “It really relaxes me. And I can’t resist when it comes to cheese and foie gras. And I love to travel. But that’s a nice weakness.”

The 34-year-old star also let fans in on her beauty tips. Her mother always says not to worry about things, because it causes wrinkles.

Her go-to scent is Melograno from Santa Maria Novella and the little luxury she can’t live without are contact lenses.

“I do wear glasses when I’m home alone in the evenings – I turn into four-eyes. But nobody knows about that…” she giggled.

February 22nd, 2015   M. Article Comments Off on Eva Green is Léa Seydoux’s favorite Bond Girl

Seydoux has vague memories of watching Pierce Brosnan as Bond when growing up, but her strongest identification is with the Daniel Craig stretch of the franchise.

‘With the arrival of Daniel, a new chapter seemed to open up for the Bond movies,’ she says.

‘The movies are better and much more exciting than they used to be.

‘As for the Bond girls, I especially identified with Eva Green as Vesper Lynd in Casino Royale.

‘It impressed me that a French actress was playing a Bond girl. I was taken with the way she could be intense and mysterious, strong and vulnerable, girlish and womanly. I love it when an actress can play with contradictions.

‘But there’s no way I could have imagined myself playing a Bond girl nearly ten years later. For me, that dream was too big.’
