This is interesting. Matthew Macfadyen just co-starred (in a small part) in ITV's Churchill's Secret, which recently aired in UK's ITV channel last February 28th (and will air sometime this year on PBS Masterpiece in the US). Now, Matthew's Pride & Prejudice director Joe Wrightis in talks to direct another Churchill related movie. This one is a different take though for the big screen from Working Title Films (who produced JW's Pride & Prejudice, Atonement, and Anna Karenina films). According to Deadline, the writer of Working Title's award-winning film The Theory of Everything penned the story and co-produces the film along with P&P producers Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner. Production is set to start in July with casting underway. If JW (officially) signed on to do this film, it'll be interesting to see who will get cast as Churchill and the supporting cast.

The first trailer has just been released for the upcoming movie Love & Friendship (aka Jane Austen's Lady Susan) starring the lovely Kate Beckinsale(best known to Austen fans as Emma Woodhouse in the 1996 TV movie Emma) as Lady Susan Vernon Martin, Chloë Sevignyas Alicia Johnson, Morfydd Clark(Georgiana Darcy in the recently released Pride and Prejudice and Zombies movie) as Lady Susan's daughter Frederica, Emma Greenwell (Caroline Bingley in also recently released Pride and Prejudice and Zombiesmovie) as Catherine Vernon, and Stephen Fry as Mr. Johnson. Whit Stillman wrote (the screenplay), produced, and directed this movie.
The film opens in US Theaters May 13th and UK Cinemas May 27th.
A DVD and Digital release date for April 5th has been listed on Amazon for Matthew Macfadyen's The Trapp Family: A Life of Music film starring Eliza Bennnet, Matthew Macfadyen, and Yvonne Catterfeld, which was released in Cinemas in Germany late last year, November 12th, 2015. So, looks like the plan to release it in US Theaters didn't work out and now it's going straight to DVD (and digital), which I don't mind really as I will most definitely get my DVD copy of this movie (and finally see it) sooner than later. Besides, had it been released in theaters, it's usually in limited screens (and I don't often get to see the movies I want to see because of it) especially with independent films like this one. So, looking forward to the DVD release and seeing this movie very soon!
