  • Grace of Monaco to open Cannes film festival

    posted by summer

    Paris – Cannes film festival organisers on Thursday unveil their pick of the A-listers and art house “auteurs” chosen to take part in this year’s movie extravaganza on the French Riviera.

    Of the hundreds of films submitted each year, only around 20 are rewarded with a coveted slot in the official line-up of films invited to compete for the top Palme d’Or prize.

    Festival artistic director Thierry Fremaux will end months of speculation when he reveals the movies that have made the cut in a ceremony in Paris.

    Hollywood stars predicted to tread the red carpet this year include Ryan Gosling, Robert Pattinson, Tommy Lee Jones and Meryl Streep although organisers never give anything away and always like to keep plenty of surprises up their sleeves.

    European cinema could be represented by the Dardenne brothers and Ken Loach while Abderrahmane Sissako from Mauritania, Apichatpong Weerasethakul from Thailand and Tetsuya Nakashima from Japan are among the others who could be in with a chance.

    Held almost every year since 1946, the festival is famed as much for launching the careers of filmmakers such as Steven Soderbergh and Quentin Tarantino as for its glitzy red carpet photo calls, luxury yachts, star-studded parties and diamond heists.

    And behind the scenes film industry executives and producers turn the festival into a huge marketplace as they cut deals to secure a share in the next big movie event.

    So far just two films have been announced for the May 14-25 festival although neither will be screened in competition.

    Grace of Monaco, starring Nicole Kidman as the former Hollywood star Grace Kelly, will open the festival on May 14, while Party Girl, a French film about an ageing night club hostess, will open the Un Certain Regard new talent section. 

    Even before its release, the royal biopic has been making headlines with the film likely to be boycotted by Grace’s children Prince Albert and Princesses Caroline and Stephanie who have dismissed it as a work of “pure fiction”.

    Based around the late Prince Rainier, played by British actor Tim Roth, and Grace, who died in a car crash in 1982, it tracks events at a time when France was threatening to annex the tiny principality on its southern coast.

    A disagreement between the film’s French director Olivier Dahan and American producer Harvey Weinstein over the editing of the movie, meanwhile, has resulted in rival versions being made.

    “There are two versions of the film mine and his which I find catastrophic,” the director said earlier.

    The row leaves open the question of which man’s movie will be shown in Cannes and supplies a dash of controversy a traditional component of the world’s biggest film festival.

    Milo Ventimiglia and Rachel Melvin to Star in the Indie ‘Madtown’

    posted by summer

    The pic will be written and directed by Charles Moore with Steven Campanella, Liz Duchez, David Spodak and J. Scott Scheel producing.

    Story revolves around Ventimiglia’s character, a survivor of an awful childhood that saw his sister sent away for murdering his abusive parents who, as an adult, finds support and acceptance after getting a job at a restaurant. This doesn’t last long after his sister gets out of prison on parole and returns to her role as a bossy, protective older sibling. Her first act is to insist that he leave his new found friends and go with her to Chicago.

    Ventimiglia, who is repped by CAA and Management 360, has a handful of films set to bow this year, including “Grace of Monaco” and “Wild Card.”

    Melvin just wrapped production on “Dumb and Dumber To,” which bows in November, and the comedy “Zombeavers.” She is repped by CAA and Authentic Management.

    Interview with GiltManual

    posted by summer

    Some actors have style thrust upon them via much needed help from a stylist. Others come by it naturally, over time, exploring and experimenting their way to a look and level of taste that’s both lasting and deeply personal. Milo Ventimiglia, star of Chosen on Crackle, is firmly in the latter category. Check out his take jewelry, learning to hold a handgun, and developing your own sense of personal style, and shop the looks he’s wearing Saturday, February 22 at noon ET.

    Virtually the first thing you did when you walked in here was school us on the art of the pocket square. Where did you learn those skills?
    [Laughs.] When I was two or three I walked out of my parents’ room wearing a loosely tied tie. My mom was like, ‘Did your dad do that for you!?’ Apparently he was outside and had no idea. So watching my dad dress growing up, he always looked sharp in a suit, so I always had this sense of how I’d put myself together. And as you get older you pick up little bits and pieces — a tie bar, a pocket square, a ring, a watch, a chain, no matter what it is, you pick up these little things and it’s validated when two or three or four years later you see these big companies starting to cycle through those things.

    You’ve been out there in the public eye for a while now. Are there any style mistakes in your past you’d love to forget?
    A beaded necklace when I was 18, but it was something that I made — and it wasn’t like somebody else was telling me to wear it. I’ve always had a strong will to say, ‘You know, thank you very much, but I don’t think I like this.’ So if anything they were all my own mistakes. Or lessons learned. Let’s call them lessons learned.

    So there was no denim tux and cowboy hat, a la Justin Timberlake, lurking out there.
    [laughs] No, no. At an early age I hit that point where I thought, you shouldn’t be able to tell when the photo was taken by what I’m wearing. When you look at the images of old Hollywood, there’s something timeless about them, so it’s like the clothes reflect that ageless era. So that was something I’ve always tried to do.

    Let’s talk Chosen — I hear it’s coming back for a third season.
    We just wrapped the third season, with Rose McGowan. It was more explosive, more intense, more heartfelt, more heartbreaking going into the second and the third seasons.

    It’s based on an electrifying premise. For guys who don’t know the show, what’s the elevator pitch?
    You get a box on your doorstep and in it is a photograph of a person you’ve never met before, with an expiration date, and a gun. And you’re expected to kill that person. What you find out very quickly is that somebody’s out there with a box with your face in it as well. So it’s a hunt and be hunted game. Every day normal people get chosen — a school teacher can be chosen or an attorney like my character can be chosen or a sick maniacal evil twisted person can be chosen and they could embrace the art of killing and being a killer.

     

    Did you have to learn to hold a handgun with some credibility? I feel like that’s one of those skills every young actor ought to master.
    The funny thing was that my character in the first season was an attorney and had never held a weapon, so the first moment when I’m actually having to lock the magazine into the gun I do it backwards and it’s not working and I’m fussing with it, but then as an actor you kind of have to be like, “Alright, how do I build the character to where he is comfortable or he is aware of how to use a gun.” My character goes on YouTube to learn how to lock and load a weapon.

    There’s a lot of talk about how streaming is really changing how people watch TV, binge watching and all that.
    We’ll shoot six episodes, which is our entire season, and we’ll just let them go right off the bat. From what I’ve heard from people, everybody’s saying the second that first one goes — boom, they’re hooked, and they’re along for the ride all the way to the end. I think it’s a benefit not having to wait around like with normal television.

    You are clearly a guy who’s always on the hunt for cool things. I bet you’ve got a badass car.
    I’ve got a classic car, a ‘67 Chevelle Super Sport. I’ve also got a Harley Davidson. But you know, I’ve gotten to the point in my life where I know the things I like, and I don’t have to be excessive about it. I’ve got my nice collection pieces. Anyting from a vintage peacoat to an old car. It even boils down to the restaurants you go to.

    Absolutely. It gets to that point where you apply a connoisseur’s approach to it. It’s about fewer things but better things. I love your rings. Tell me about them.
    The turquoise one is a 1950s Zuny wedding band that I picked up from my friends over at RRL in Los Angeles. And then the other one, my Indian chief, is by a friend of mine, Jessica Seaton. I’d always been a fan of her stuff, but I was never a ring kind of guy — maybe a chain with medallions from my grandmother, or a simple watch that was my dad’s in Vietnam. But then I saw this Indian chief ring, and it’s funny she told you, ‘You’re one of the guys I thought would wear it.” I got the first one off the press and now I wear it all the time.

    We’ve profiled a ton of cool guys, from Billy Reid to Amar’e Stoudemire. Who should we hit up as our next Man of Style?
    There’s a director whose name is Anthony Mandler, he does a lot in the music world and he’s a photographer, but he’s a guy who has a very casual, effortless way about him, but it’s also put together, but you can tell he’s not trying, it’s just who he is. He’s a cool guy.

    I think it starts with being a cool guy first, doesn’t it?
    First and foremost, because you don’t want anybody complimenting the asshole just because he’s well-dressed. [laughs]

    Milo gets lead role in the ABC Pilot ‘The Visitors’

    Heroes star Milo Ventimiglia and Revenge‘s Barry Sloane have been cast as leads in ABC alien drama pilot The Visitors, from Amblin TV, after fielding interest from multiple pilots. The project chronicles the race against the clock to defeat an unseen alien enemy out to destroy the world. Ventimiglia will play John Doe/Drew, who is covered in strange tattoos and diagrams and speaks in a strange language. Sloane will play Wes, a former FBI agent now with the Special Projects Division of the Defense department who investigates military threats that are better off solved outside the public’s knowledge. The Visitors is for the same network and hails from the same studio, ABC Studios, as Revenge, where Sloane has been a regular since midway through the second season after starting the season as a recurring. Sloane received the blessing of Revenge‘s producers to do a pilot this season. The fate of his character, Aiden, is being kept under wraps.
