Fresh Face: ‘Cold War’ Breakout Joanna Kulig Has Music Inside Her Soul
Who

Joanna Kulig

Age: 36

Hometown: Krynica-Zdrój, Lesser Poland, Poland

What

In Pawel Pawlikowski’s Cold War, Kulig is Zula, a woman in post-war Poland who joins a folk music touring group. She begins a romance with conductor Wiktor (Tomasz Kot) and the two form a passionate but volatile couple. The story spans time and countries as the pair begins to realize that although they should never be together, they can never be apart.

“I think Zula is like me, very emotional,” Kulig says. Pawlikowski has said the inspiration for the two leads was his own parents’ turbulent past.

Why

Kulig is one of the rare foreign language performers being buzzed about for a potential Best Actress Oscar nomination. Her layered turn as Zula was crafted over an essentially chronological shoot which she says invested her with the ability to “find this line of how Zula is at the beginning and at the end.

Finland Prepares Warm Welcome for Productions Seeking Winter Wonderland

  • Variety
Production designer Sarah Greenwood didn’t expect to find herself on the fringes of the Arctic Circle while shooting 2011’s “Hanna,” the story of a teenage girl raised in the wilderness to be an assassin. “We weren’t originally planning to go to Finland,” she says, recalling the pre-production for a film meant to shoot in Germany.

Greenwood, director Joe Wright and cinematographer Alwin Küchler had been scouting locations in Bavaria, lured by a generous tax rebate and assurances that the region would be suitable for the movie’s winter scenes. But they arrived to melting snow and driving rain. A frozen lake they’d planned to shoot on couldn’t support the crew’s weight. “You just knew it was going belly up,” she says.

Küchler, who had recently worked in Finland, suggested they try their luck with Finnish Lapland instead: a vast, wintery wilderness with more than 200 days of annual snow cover.

The role keeps Kinnaman in the TV sci-fi space, with the actor recently starring in the first season of the Netflix series “Altered Carbon.” He is also attached to the Amazon series adaptation of the film “Hanna” in a lead role. He is also known for his roles on the shows “House of Cards” and “The Killing.” On the film side, he starred in “Suicide Squad,” “Child 44,” and the “RoboCop” reboot.

Joel Kinnaman, Sarah Jones & Michael Dorman To Star In Ron Moore’s Apple Space Series
Exclusive: Former The Killing and Altered Carbon star Joel Kinnaman, Patriot star Michael Dorman and Damnation co-star Sarah Jones have been tapped as the leads in Apple’s upcoming space drama series from Battlestar Galactica‘s and Outlander‘s Ronald D. Moore.

Dorman has played the lead on the Amazon Studios’ quirky genre-bending spy drama series Patriot whose second season was ordered 16 months ago but is yet to air. Because of the delay, Dorman was able to book a new series. I hear Amazon will likely not make a formal renewal decision on Patriot until Season 2 is released and should they opt to do another season, they will have to work around Dorman’s schedule on the Apple series.

Kinnamon, who played the lead, Takeshi Kovacs, on the first season of Netflix’s Altered Carbon, was recently tapped to star on the upcoming Amazon drama series Hanna in what is currently a one-year deal.

Darkest Hour Director Joe Wright is Set To Helm a Hitchcockian Style Thriller Called The Women On The Window

Director Joe Wright, who is hot off the success of his incredible film Darkest Hour, has found another film project to take on. The film is called The Woman in the Window, which is based on the novel by A.J. Finn. The story has a very Hitchcockian kind of vibe to it, and it sounds like the perfect project for Wright to take on. Here's the story description:

It isn’t paranoia if it’s really happening . . .

Anna Fox lives alone—a recluse in her New York City home, unable to venture outside. She spends her day drinking wine (maybe too much), watching old movies, recalling happier times . . . and spying on her neighbors.

Then the Russells move into the house across the way: a father, a mother, their teenage son. The perfect family. But when Anna, gazing out her window one night, sees something she shouldn’t, her world begins

What We Know about the New Hanna TV Series for Amazon

Hanna is about to become a TV series on Amazon and while it didn’t do much as a movie the hope is that it will be a more attractive lure for viewers as a TV series. It could have been that Hanna came at a time when people were starting to tire of clandestine figures that were highly skilled and knew how to kill people in various and eye-catching ways, or it could have been something else. Whatever the case Hanna was an action-packed movie that didn’t get enough respect. Here’s hoping the series will get the kind of attention

The End of the F***ing World: Who Plays Alyssa on Netflix's Dark New Show?

  • BuzzSugar
Image Source: Netflix The darkly funny Netflix series The End of the F***ing World has been the talk of the entertainment world since it hit the streaming service on Jan. 5. In addition to having a grisly, twisted vibe, season one also boasts a killer soundtrack and a slightly maddening cliffhanger. The show follows high school classmates James and Alyssa, and it's definitely not your average coming-of-age story. The pair set out to escape their monotonous lives together on a spontaneous road trip, during which the self-diagnosed psychopath James (played by Black Mirror's Alex Lawther) hopes to murder someone. So, who plays James's angsty getaway buddy and literal partner in crime? Seventeen-year-old Alyssa is portrayed by Jessica Barden, who's actually 25. In addition to The End of the F***ing World, the English actress has starred in films like The Lobster, Hanna, and Far From the Madding Crowd. On the small screen,

Daniel Day-Lewis Doesn’t Give the Best Performance in ‘Phantom Thread’: Vicky Krieps on Her Breakthrough Role

Daniel Day-Lewis Doesn’t Give the Best Performance in ‘Phantom Thread’: Vicky Krieps on Her Breakthrough Role
Daniel Day-Lewis is unsurprisingly great in “Phantom Thread,” the thrice-awarded thespian’s supposed swan song, but the movie doesn’t belong to him. That honor goes to the remarkable Vicky Krieps, who’s far from a newcomer but essentially unknown on this side of the Atlantic — outside of “A Most Wanted Man” and “Hanna,” most of the Luxembourgian thespian’s work has been in Germany. One suspects that’s about to change.

Day-Lewis plays a mid-century fashion designer in Paul Thomas Anderson’s latest, which reunites him with his “There Will Be Blood” star a decade later. Brilliant and neurotic, the esteemed Reynolds Woodcock can’t stand deviations from his routine and, according to his old so-and-so of a sister (Lesley Manville), is disoriented for the rest of the day whenever breakfast doesn’t go exactly as planned — which makes it a minor disaster when Alma (Krieps), whom he meets in a seaside inn,

How Gary Oldman and Joe Wright Created the World of Winston Churchill in ‘Darkest Hour’

How Gary Oldman and Joe Wright Created the World of Winston Churchill in ‘Darkest Hour’
A version of this story first appeared in the Actors/Directors/Screenwriters issue of TheWrap’s Oscar magazine. More than a decade ago, a mutual friend introduced Gary Oldman to a young, aspiring director named Joe Wright, and added this note: “He’s going to be a great director someday.” Wright went on to make “Pride & Prejudice,” “Atonement,” “Hanna” and “Anna Karenina,” among other films — and Oldman remembered the long-ago introduction when the director came to him to star as Winston Churchill in “Darkest Hour,” a historical drama that focuses on Churchill as he assumes the office of Prime Minister in the perilous.
