Three-part supernatural drama 'The Enfield Haunting' will also feature 'Ripper Street' star Matthew Macfadyen (via THR)
U.K. pay TV giant BSkyB has unveiled a new drama for its Sky Living channel that will star big-name British talent and be directed by one of the driving forces behind Danish hit series The Killing.
Timothy Spall, who triumphed at this year's Cannes by winning the best actor award for Mike Leigh’s Mr. Turner, will take the lead in The Enfield Haunting, a three-part poltergeist drama based on real events that took place in a house in North London in 1977.
Spall will play Maurice Grosse, a rookie paranormal researcher, while Oliver Award-wining actress and BAFTA-nominee Juliet Stevenson (Emma, Bend it like Beckham, Mona Lisa Smile), will play his wife Betty. Matthew Macfadyen (Ripper Street, Frost/Nixon) will star as Guy Lyon Playfair, a skeptical investigator and the author of the book This House is Haunted from which the drama is adapted.

Kristoffer Nyhold, who directed 12 episodes from the first two seasons of the acclaimed Danish version of crime drama The Killing as well as storylining the entire series, has been brought on board to direct, with screenplays by Joshua St. Johnson (Walking on Sunshine, Sweeney Todd).

"It’s a brilliant script that is full of emotional texture and develops beautifully into a human story," said Spall in a statement.

The Enfield Haunting is being made by U.K. production house Eleven Film, behind the upcoming crime series Glue on Channel 4’s youth channel E4. Eleven recently signed a first-look deal with eOne.

Sky says the supernatural drama will form the "cornerstone" of Sky Living’s schedule for spring 2015.
Keira Knightley 'won't be joining Pirates Of The Carribean 5'
(via Daily Mail)
She's one of the stars of the upcoming WWII drama The Imitation Game, and it looks like Keira Knightley was imitating one four-legged character herself.

The actress arrived to the Toronto International Film Festival press conference for the film, in a dalmatian-like lace dress with large black polka dots all over it.

But while Keira seemed inspired by one Disney film, it looks like she won't be returning to another, after she confirmed that 'the ship has sailed' for her to join Pirates Of The Caribbean 5.


The actress's revelation comes soon after Orlando Bloom - who played love interest Will Turner to her Elizabeth Swann in the trilogy - admitted he may join Johnny Depp and Geoffrey Rush in the fifth movie - Dead Men Tell No Tales.
The British actor starred in the first three installments of the swashbuckling franchise with Keira but wasn’t a part of the fourth movie, 2011’s On Stranger Tides.

Here’s What Happened When Gillian Flynn Interviewed Rosamund Pike About Gone Girl

I have a very clear memory of the first time I met Rosamund Pike, the British actress who would play Amy Elliott Dunne in Gone Girl. As both the author of the novel and the screenwriter for the film, I’ll admit I’d let myself get overprotective of Amazing Amy (as she’s nicknamed in the book) and her many dimensions. To sum up the story: Amy disappears on her fifth wedding anniversary. Her husband, Nick, is quickly convicted by the court of public opinion in their small Missouri town—but is he a murderer? And is she really who she seems to be?

I was giddy when filmmaker David Fincher (Fight Club, The Social Network) signed on as director and thrilled when Ben Affleck—always my top pick for Nick Dunne—agreed to play the husband who may or may not have killed his wife. But as for that beautiful wife? Amy had been in my brain too long; I hovered over the casting process, watchful and wary.

Then Rosamund appeared. A former Bond girl, a stunning arthouse flower, a scene-stealer even in supporting roles in movies as different as Pride & Prejudice and the thriller Jack Reacher.


Several months after we wrapped the film, I met Rosamund again in Chicago—we’d been trying to get together for a while, and we ended up in a game of Who’s the Most Pregnant? I was eight months; she was four. She kindly came to me. We met on a hotel roof deck with a blue view of Lake Michigan, Rosamund in a flowing black sundress, Robie and Solo popping in occasionally on the way to search out a swimming pool. She seemed relaxed as we talked and enjoyed the brief pause before the mad rush of Gone Girl’s premiere, on October 3.

Gillian Flynn: Amy is not an easy person to carry around with you.
Rosamund Pike: At the beginning it was very stressful. There was the eating, the weight loss. [Amy’s weight fluctuates dramatically in the story.] I gained 12 pounds, exactly what it says in the book. And I lost it, then gained it, and lost it again. And my oblivious husband [Robie] didn’t even notice—wait, he’s not my husband. I get so used to saying “my husband” because it’s just more convenient. [Laughs.]
GF: We see Amy both as a doting wife and girlfriend, but we also see a lot of anger in her too. How did you get at that anger?
RP: Anger is not an accepted thing for women. And you know, I do get angry. I feel it’s a very honest emotion.
GF: You see men blow up all the time, and it’s not a big deal. But if a woman does it, either she’s crazy or she’s shrill. It’s like, you know what? She may just be angry.

Benedict Cumberbatch, Judi Dench and the cast of The Hollow Crown gather for first read-through! (via Radio Times and BBC Two tweet below)

What happens when you gather Benedict Cumberbatch, Dame Judi Dench and Keeley Hawes all in one room? (What we'd give to learn the answer to that question first hand...)

Well, it turns out the lucky folks at BBC2 enjoyed that very reality earlier this week when  the cast of The Hollow Crown sat down for their first read-through ahead of the return of Shakespeare's history plays.

 Starring Cumberbatch as Richard III, the three-part series will also feature Hugh Bonneville (as Humphrey of Lancaster), Sophie Okonedo (Queen Margaret), Sally Hawkins (Eleanor, Duchess of Gloucester) and Tom Strurridge (Henry VI).

Dame Judi will appear as the Duchess of York while Hawes is to portray Elizabeth Woodville – with Ben Daniels also confirming that he has joined the cast to play the Duke of Buckingham.
George Clooney to Visit Downton Abbey (via People.com)

The Hollywood actor will appear in a one-off charity special

Not only is George Clooney about to marry a Brit, he's also set to visit the ultimate British period drama – Downton Abbey.

A spokesperson for ITV, which broadcasts the show in the United Kingdom, confirms to PEOPLE that the Oscar winner is participating in a short charity sketch set in the Downton Abbey world that will air "around Christmas time."

Alas, his character will not appear on the actual show, which premieres its fifth season Sept. 21 in the U.K. The actor, 53, will appear in a one-off sketch aiding the ITV charity Text Santa – an annual fundraiser which raises money for U.K. charities during the Christmas season. The skit will also not air in the United States.

Clooney, who reportedly plays a wedding guest, struck up a friendship with Hugh Bonneville, who stars as Downton's patriarch Robert Crawley, while filming The Monuments Men together.
