Movie News: Carey Mulligan to star in 'This Beautiful Fantastic'

Hollywood Reporter reports that Carey Mulligan has been cast in a new film, This Beautiful Fantastic.

LONDON -- Terry Loane's "This Beautiful Fantastic" has attracted a sparkling cast with Carey Mulligan, Tom Wilkinson, Christopher Eccleston, Mackenzie Crook and Joanna Lumley all in line to shine.

Billed as a modern fairy tale, Simon Aboud's script appears on the annual Brit List, a compilation of the best unproduced screenplays from these shores that circulates here and stateside.

The movie is set to shoot in March 2010 shooting on location in Edinburgh, Scotland and in studio facilities in Cologne, Germany, the backers said.

The script details the story of a chronically shy and obsessively tidy children's author whose world is turned upside down when she falls in love with a crazy, shambolic inventor.

Tom Hollander stars in a political comedy film 'In The Loop'

With the previous post here:( An Education scored six British Independent Film Award Nominations) that Tom Hollander(aka P&P's Mr. Collins) is nominated for his latest film, In The Loop (it's nominated for a total of 6 BIFA) for Best Supporting Actor, I must admit and say here that I didn't even know (or rather didn't noticed) that he was in this film, and I've heard/read the title of this film mentioned a lot in various film blogs/sites, lol. So, I totally forgot to post about it here...till now.

Anyway, here are the following info about this film...

The US President and UK Prime Minister fancy a war. But not everyone agrees that war is a good thing. The US General Miller (James Gandolfini) doesn't think so and neither does the British Secretary of State for International Development, Simon Foster (Tom Hollander). But, after Simon accidentally backs military action on TV, he suddenly has a lot of friends in Washington, DC.

If Simon can get in with t…

As The Telegraph recently reported that Keira Knightley beats Scarlett Johansson to be in My Fair Lady + Joe Wright to direct it!

(Note: This is not official and confirmed yet though. Neither Keira Knightley, Joe Wright nor the producers (Sir Cameron Mackintosh, who is producing this film with Duncan Kenworthy) has confirmed their involvement for this film... at least not yet).

What do you think of Keira Knightley (starring as Eliza Doolittle) and Joe Wright (directing her) re-teaming for 'My Fair Lady' remake?

Filming Update: Rosamund Pike in Barney's Version

Here's an interesting article by Jacob Richler for aboutRosamund Pike's Barney's Version film, which she's currently filming. It mentions Ros and her character Miriam.

Simone's take on Barney's Version

Well, yes. And later that very day, just down the road at a cottage on the shore of Lake Memphremagog—as it happens, just a bay up from where my father wrote the book—Barney would be marrying his one true love, Miriam (Rosamund Pike). But first, we were going to flash forward a decade or so: enter the future progeny, young Kate (Simone) and her brother Michael (Zack Kifell). According to the call sheet, Simone’s first, she would be sharing screen space with none other than Paul Giamatti, Rosamund Pike and Dustin Hoffman.

This impressed me but not her; she had never heard of any of them. However, in the car driving over to Serendipity Point Films for her screen test with Robert Lantos, I had given a quick backgrounder on the wonderful films Hoffman had …
