Actress and Montblanc Brand Ambassador Eva Green and actor Clemens Schick arrive for the Montblanc reception at Ropac Gallery after the ‘Der Stein’ theatre premiere on July 31, 2008 in Salzburg, Austria.
EDIT: More photos now in the gallery!!! And, also, thanks to mata, we have the brand new August Calendar Page.
PS: Clemens Schick had a small role in “Casino Royale”. He played Kratt, Le Chiffre’s evil sidekick.
Why does Montblanc care about the Festival?
I’m posting this on behalf of friends of mine. They’re great with news and British magazines, but they’d need a co-web for their three upcoming sites. They need a webpartner to put up the photogallery and help to put up news on the site and someone who can make screencaps and get photos. They have no experience with running websites, but they’ve helped me a lot with contributions for my site. So I think that working with them won’t be a problem.
You can either contact me and I’ll contact them for you, or email them at chuckie876@(removethis)googlemail.com.
RENCONTRE AVEC EVA GREEN
Elle pose son regard de braise sur l’univers du cinéma avec passion et modestie. Troublante, l’ex-James Bond girl, égérie Dior du parfum Midnight Poison, adepte des films noirs, brouille les pistes avec un certain plaisir. Moteur !

Au bar du Normandy, à Deauville, Eva Green, en costume de dandy Dior, consulte la carte des vins. Hésite entre un chablis et un saint-émilion. Choisit finalement le rouge, qui est sa couleur. La voix étonnamment grave, le corps frêle, le regard bleu Hollywood expliquent aisément qu’on l’ait recrutée pour donner la réplique à 007. C’est de cet exploit ambigu qu’elle cherche à s’affranchir. En travailleuse obstinée qui répète non-stop avec sa coach, en jeune fille si bien élevée d’une actrice française exquise et gouailleuse – alias Marlène Jobert –, en expatriée de luxe peu épatée par la cruauté de Los Angeles, la frénésie de Londres ou l’intensité de New York. En Normandie, elle retrouve ses racines, la maison de famille, les odeurs d’iode et de bocage.
Eva Green is currently on the cover of two French magazines: GQ France and Madame Figaro.
The gorgeous Madame Figaro photoshoot was taken at Deauville in front of the beach, but also at the Normandy and Royal hotels.
In the interview, the actress who’s just turned 28 admits that she’s not ready to have children yet: “No, I don’t feel ready at all, I already have trouble taking care of my dog. I don’t know if that’s my thing. I’d need to be settled, it’ll take some time, I think.”
In GQ, she talks about her experience in “Casino Royale” and working with Daniel Craig, and “Cracks”: “I’m currently in Dublin, filming ‘Cracks’. I play a swimming teacher, in the 1930s, who falls for one of her students.”
Pullman doubts ‘Golden Compass’ sequel
18 July 2008 11:28 PM, PDT | From Digitalspy
Author Philip Pullman is not convinced that New Line Cinema will complete the His Dark Materials trilogy after the adaptation of his novel The Golden Compass underperformed in cinemas. Pullman told The Daily Telegraph that a film based on second book The Subtle Knife is unlikely to make it to the screen for its intended 2009 release date. He said: “I think people were hoping it would be out then but without the film actually having a production start date there can’t be a due date.”
Like last year, Grandes Ecoles City Circle is launching the “Francais of the Year” 2008 awards, celebrating the most talented French people who live and work in the UK.
The nominees are split into the following categories: Chefs, Artists, Sportsmen, Bankers and Chief Executives, to which have been added this year, at the request of numerous electors, three new categories: Entrepreneurs, Rising Stars and Talents.
Vote online on http://www.grandes-ecoles-city-circle.com
The vote will be open until the 30th September 2008 and the awards ceremony will take place in October 2008 in a prestigious London venue.
Eva didn’t win last year. Who knows, maybe she will this year… So, vote!
Attention Londoners! Eva is featured in today’s issue of ES Magazine. There’s a whole page dedicated to Miss Green and “her London”. That’s a very interesting reading!
I’ve added a scan to the gallery! Enjoy!
Thanks to Lorna for the heads-up!
Guess what? Eva is featured in the August issue of Glamour France! Thanks to Clémentine for letting me know and for Tango_down for kindly buying it and scanning it for us. You rock! The pictures are from last year’s Vanity Fair and already known to us, but the 1 page interview is new.
Have a wonderful day. We all wish you all the best and hope all your dreams come true!
Deal is for U.K., French and Benelux rights
By Stuart Kemp
July 3, 2008
LONDON — StudioCanal has inked a deal for U.K., French and Benelux rights to Jordan Scott’s “Cracks” in a multiterritory deal that will see British indie Optimum Releasing roll out the movie out here.
The British boarding school-set period drama, which is about to wrap shooting, stars Eva Green, Juno Temple and Sinead Cusack.
The film also has attracted Alain Goldman, who will executive produce through his Legende Enterprises production banner.
“Cracks” is produced by Future Films’ Kwesi Dickson, Industry Entertainment’s Rosalie Swedlin, Killer Films’ Christine Vachon and Scott Free’s Julie Payne. Ridley Scott, Tony Scott, John Wells, Michael Costigan, Stephen Margolis and Guy Collins are exec producers.
The picture has secured funding from the Irish Film Board.

I know that many of you worried, wondering about what happened and why the site was offline. But we’re back! My awesome host unfortunately had technical difficulties. We’ve also lost the June updates, but we’re back! That’s what counts!
As for my latest post, it was about Eva not having any confirmed project after “Cracks”. At least not yet. Contrary to rumours, she didn’t sign for the new Tim Burton movie, even though that would have been awesome! Eva is still filming in Ireland, and “Cracks” will be an amazing film according to her management. We’ll only know about eventual new projects after the end of the summer. Last but not least, “Franklyn” is set for release in October of this year.
Oh, and did you see that Vesper appears briefly in the brand new “Quantum of Solace” teaser trailer?
She’s used to the trappings of life on the set of multimillion-dollar blockbusters, but former Bond girl Eva Green is still happy to get down and dirty in the wilds of Co Wicklow.
Locals in the village of Redcross were given lashings of Gallic charm as the Parisian actress rolled into town with a film crew.
It didn’t take much to transform the sleepy one-street village, nestled in the Wicklow mountains, into a 1930s-era thoroughfare for the new film ‘Cracks’.
Local extras, dressed in heavy tweeds, milled about vintage cars between takes — and even members of the local sheep population got walk-on roles.
It’s not the first visit to Ireland for the stunning actress, although last time round she didn’t have a personal hairdresser and make-up artist on hand.
“When I was 15 I went to Galway on an exchange. It’s one of my best memories,” she recalled during a break in filming yesterday.
“Coming back from a work point of view is very different … the countryside is magnificent and mysterious. This is the best role I’ve ever read. It’s amazing, quite dark,” she added.
Photos taken today:
EDIT: 16 new HQs were added to the gallery.
EDIT2: Even more HQs were added.
PS: The strawberry blonde lady is director Jordan Scott.
Surprise, surprise! The first on-set pic of Eva on the set of “Cracks” has surfaced! There she was photographed in Dublin on May 23rd. She didn’t look very happy though. Imogen Poots was one of the girls filming this very same day. No sight of Juno Temple or María Valverde yet.
EDIT: Six more HQs were added. This time you can really spot Miss G.’s 30s look.
