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.

‘Darkest Hour': Gary Oldman Won’t Back Down in New Trailer

Focus Features has released a new trailer for Atonement and Hanna director Joe Wright’s historical drama Darkest Hour. Scripted by Anthony McCarten (The Theory of Everything), the film stars a totally unrecognizable Gary Oldman as Winston Churchill and begins on the eve of World War II, chronicling Churchill’s difficult push to get England to stand up to Nazi Germany and enter the war rather than negotiate a treaty. This trailer does a great job of showcasing how Wright's direction keeps this thing moving, even as the script is mostly a series of conversations and speeches held in …

Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams – The Impossible Planet Review

Villordsutch reviews Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams: The Impossible Planet…

Episode two of Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams is titled The Impossible Planet. Originally published back in 1953 within the American Science Fiction and Fantasy magazine Imagination, this latest iteration is delivered by David Farr (The Night Manager, Hanna, McMafia) who is handling both writing and directing duties.

Set far in the distant future, we find two disenchanted Interstellar Tour Guides, Brian Norton (Jack Reynor) and Ed Andrews (Benedict Wong), trapped on a backwater planet called Primo76, entertaining droves of tourists with visually enhanced excursions throughout the galaxy. Then opportunity knocks in the form of a deaf, elderly woman called Irma Gordon (Geraldine Chaplin) and her robot RB29 (Malik Ibheis), who wishes to see Earth one last time and will pay cash to do so.

Seeing this as an unmissable chance Andrews convinces Norton that he can scam Mrs.

Tiff Review: ‘Lady Bird’ is Wise, Funny, Remarkably Assured, and One of the Year’s Great Joys

Lady Bird is one of the year’s great joys. Greta Gerwig’s debut as a solo writer-director is so wise, so funny, and so remarkably assured that it seems to have flown in out of nowhere. Where did this nearly perfect coming-of-age comedy and emotionally affecting study of youth, social status, and financial malaise come from? The answer has been hiding in plain sight. As an actress, Gerwig has shown inimitable intelligence in films such as Frances Ha and 20th Century Women. She has now moved behind the camera for a 2002-set study of a Sacramento teen’s final year of high school, starring Saoirse Ronan, Laurie Metcalf, Tracy Letts, Lucas Hedges, and Timothée Chalamet, with music by Jon Brion.

Even after mentioning the involvement of such an ensemble of talent, I’m not sure anyone could have anticipated just how strong a film Lady Bird would be, or

Casey Affleck Set To Star in Director Joe Wright’s Stoner

Casey Affleck has signed on to star in his first movie since winning the Best Actor Oscar for his heavy and emotional role in Manchester By the Sea. The film is called Stoner and it will be directed by Joe Wright (Atonement, Hanna, The Soloist). The movie is based on a novel by the same name written by Jon Williams.

The story will follow the life of William Stoner, “a dirt-poor farmer turned academic, who emerges as an unlikely existential hero while making his way through the first half of the 20th Century.”

Producer Jason Blum has this to say in a statement:

“Because the novel is so beautiful but not well-known, fans of ‘Stoner’ feel like they’re in a secret club. I’m so excited that Casey, Joe and Andrew have come aboard to help expand this club’s membership. This quintessentially American work is being brought to
