The Playlist are reporting that Nancy and Danny has now been renamed Hold On To Me, and that Twilight‘s Robert Pattinson will be starring opposite Carey:
Pattinson will join Carey Mulligan in the previously announced “Nancy And Danny” which is now called “Hold On To Me.” But this isn’t some swoony romance. Pennedy by Brad Ingelsby (“Out Of The Furnace”), and set to be directed by James Marsh (“Project Nim,” “Shadow Dancer”) the story follows a money hungry woman, whose life didn’t turn out the way she wanted, who uses a man as a pawn to help land her high school crush in a get-rich-quick scheme. And that plan is to bury the town’s richest man in box and hold him for ransom, but of course, things don’t go as their supposed to.
The Danish fimmaker Thomas Vinterberg is in talks with the British production company DNA to direct a new version of Thomas Hardy’s 1874 “Far From the Madding Crowd,” his fourth novel and his first major success. According to The Wrap, Carey Mulligan is apparently being sought for the lead role of Bathsheba Everdene, played by Julie Christie in John Schlesinger’s 1967 version.
The script will be written by David Nicholls, who wrote the 2008 BBC adaptation of Hardy’s “Tess of the d’Urbervilles” and the upcoming Mike Newell film of “Great Expectations.”
“Far From the Madding Crowd” is about the attraction of the vain and proud (but inherently virtuous) independent farmer Bathsheba for three men in a fictitious county like Dorset, in Hardy’s mythical Wessex. For the abusive and reckless Sergeant Troy and the prosperous older farmer William Boldwood, her allure proves tragic.
Her most steadfast advocate and her soulmate is the shepherd Gabriel Oak, who becomes her second husband after Troy. Although “Far From the Madding Crowd” is a romantic tragedy, it is less fatalistic and more optimistic in tone than “Tess,” “Jude the Obscure,” or “The Mayor of Casterbridge.”
Warner Bros. will open Baz Luhrmann’s 3D film adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic novel The Great Gatsby on May 10, 2013, a high-profile summer date.
Headlining Leonardo DiCaprio, the movie will begin its international rollout a week later. The Great Gatsby also stars Tobey Maguire, Carey Mulligan, Joel Edgerton, Isla Fisher and Jason Clarke.
Gatsby originally was scheduled to open Christmas 2012 but was pushed back to allow more time for postproduction.
“Audiences have been looking forward to Baz Luhrmann’s film adaptation of one of the most beloved books of all time, and we felt this beautifully extravagant and dramatic film would be a perfect way for us to kick off the summer slate,” said Warner Bros. president of domestic distribution Dan Fellman, who announced the release date with Warner Bros. president of international distribution Veronika Kwan Vandenberg.
Lurhmann co-wrote the adapted script with frequent collaborator Craig Pearce. He also is a producer alongside Catherine Martin, Lucy Fisher, Douglas Wick and Catherine Knapman.
