That Aronofsky film being released this year, Black Swan (I think), sounds pretty great as I read it described. Though I can't remember where I saw the article or exactly what it said. Heh.

That sounds like an odd strategy to release a movie.

Well, it's two parts of a series. It's not 'Elektra Luxx 1 and 2', it's Women in Trouble, with Carla Gugino as Elektra Luxx, and Elextra Luxx, with Carla Gugino as Elektra Luxx.

From the first I heard of Women in Trouble they were always going to make the second one, so it's not a spinoff, it's a pair of films using a character that was in one of his previous film projects. The pair of films is a spinoff from an earlier thing, I gather, but the two of them together are just, like, two projects with the same characters.

Making Neds

3 September, 2009 | By Allan Hunter

Image

Seven years after he won the Golden Lion for his directorial debut, Peter Mullan is back in the director’s chair, filming Neds in Glasgow. He talks to ScreenDaily about the 1973-set story and its influences

Peter Mullan describes Neds as “personal but not autobiographical”. His first directorial project since The Magdalene Sisters (2002) is set in the Glasgow of 1973 and follows a bright, sensitive youngster drawn towards the violence of the local gang culture.

The poverty of his circumstances, the oppressive hand of a drunken, bullying father and problems at school combine to warp his expectations of life.There are some parallels with Mullan’s own youth but the script comes from a place where reality ends and imagination begins.

“I would say that maybe 10% of it actually happened and the other 90% is fiction; little anecdotes I’ve heard over the years, stories I’ve been told and things I’ve just made up,” Mullan explains.

“Where it’s personal is in the essential journey of a young man trying to find out who he is, going through all that existential anguish and finding his humanity again in his teenage years. I think we’ve all been through that.”

Mullan holds a unique position within European film culture as a Cannes Best Actor winner for Ken Loach’s My Name Is Joe (1998) and a Venice Golden Lion winner for The Magdalene Sisters which he wrote and directed.The success of the latter brought him offers from around the world.

“I got a lot of offers for Hollywood scripts and not one of them interested me,” he admits candidly. “The one that did was The Time Traveler’s Wife. The script was pretty good and I did my first proper Hollywood pitch and just fucked it up. I went completely cerebral and arthouse and was just met by silence.

“They said, ‘Can you give us broader strokes?’ and that totally caught me off guard. What did that mean? Of course I subsequently discovered it meant who did I see in the lead roles and how much was it going to make.”

Budgeted at less than $8m (£5m), Neds is a UK (Bluelight), France (Fidelite), Italy (Studio Urania) co-production funded by Film 4, the UK Film Council, Scottish Screen and Wild Bunch who are also handling international sales. E1 Entertainment will release in the UK. It has been a project close to Mullan’s heart for a number of years and there is a palpable sense of pleasure in his return to the director’s chair.

“It was a real shock to me that it was eight years since I made The Magdalene Sisters,” he reflects. “I never thought I would have left it this long. I’ve done an awful lot as an actor but as a director I’ve done fuck all. After a couple of days of panic, I settled into it and had forgotten how much I enjoyed it.”

Mullan’s approach to a tale set in the 1970s is to not stress the obvious. There will be no glaring period props, no wallowing in false nostalgia and no indulgence of music tracks from the era. Although he does think the style of the piece may have started to reflect the film and television dramas of the 1970s.

“I’m very conscious now that I’m shooting certain scenes that are almost an homage to certain TV programmes and films of the era,” he admits. “The domestic scenes and the acting style is influenced by the BBC Plays For Today and directors like Ken Loach, Alan Clarke and there are even elements of Mike Leigh slipping in, and none of it done consciously. Then there are moments when it’s almost like Peckinpah. The film almost ends up like an opera before the calming of the storm.”

Mullan has been pleased to discover the humour of the piece is also beginning to emerge during shooting.

“I always thought it was funny and I’m not sure other people did. Everyone was very complimentary about the script but they all though it was grim. Now they are beginning to see the humour. There are some great little moments the camera captures that are completely unexpected and pure gold as far as I’m concerned.”
There.

Along with what LEAVES said, "In production" is used by IMDb usually to pretty much mean "we have no idea what's going on" so that's something

IMDB classifying something as "in production" is also not code for "NOT in production," so yeah that's something. Sounds like it is in fact going ahead.

Actually, it'd be interesting to see an Aronofsky-made Transformers 3. Until that comes, though, we have his reboot of Robocop.

True. Though it does seems as though there's been a lot of talk about this lately in the press, which is more than can be said about a lot of announced projects.

Still.... I'd watch it.

He seems to be the lead in an upcoming King Lear movie. That might not suck.

Their movies seem to survive on the strength of the cast, and Bynes has some comic timing in her, as does Wilson. Fischer and Merchant will definitely deliver, so it's up to the first two to make sure this movie isn't a stinker.

Don't hate. He comes off as just a pretty face (though not my type), but the guy's a good actor.

Scheduled to be released this year, but I wouldn't get my hopes up.

It is only fitting to wait patiently for a Tarr film.

Their movies seem to survive on the strength of the cast, and Bynes has some comic timing in her, as does Wilson. Fischer and Merchant will definitely deliver, so it's up to the first two to make sure this movie isn't a stinker.
That's very true. Fischer and Merchant will do well. Wilson is hit or miss with me so I don't know. I don't think I've watched Bynes since All That. :)
Way cooler than Wil

I don't think Bynes has had a movie since She's All That.
With Wilson, I think he's good when he's guided, like in Wes Anderson flicks. So I wonder how the Farrellys will handle him.

Hopefully he's not going another movie with Jon Avnet
