The star of the third "Transformers" Rosie Huntington-Whiteley will continue to move away from the podium to the side of a large cinema. British supermodel will star in the film by George Miller's "Mad Max 4", where are involved Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron.
A couple of weeks ago, the tabloids found out about the meeting of Whiteley with the director of "Mad Max 4" in Sydney. Apparently, the conversation with the actress has satisfied the Miller, as last week, Rosie was adopted by one of the roles in the project.
In addition to Huntington-Whiteley, the film invites yet another supermodel, Abbey Lee Kershaw. Presumably the girls will play two of the "five wives," who pursue the villains, while the protection of women raises the hero of Tom Hardy.
Work on the new "Mad Max" was repeatedly postponed. For the first time the desire to revive Miller's legendary hero of the 1980s became known in May 2009. Then Mel Gibson has not yet become a Hollywood outcast, and again play Mad Max was not going to. In the autumn of 2009 to the project were attributed Hardy and Theron, but at the same time work on the film had to stop because of the price jumped in the Australian dollar and that had an impact on the budget belt.
In 2009, the same survey were planning to resume no earlier than February 2012. Producers almost kept their promise: work on tape is already underway. Already in July, the film crew went to Namibia, which will serve as the place of the "Mad Max 4."
At the 65th Cannes Film Festival Tom Hardy presented his new film, "Lawless," shocking journalists lush vegetation on the face. It was rumored that Hardy grows a beard just for the "Mad Max". His colleague, Charlize Theron has recently received absolutely the opposite, shaving her luxurious blond hair.
"Mad Max 4" should be the first film of the new trilogy, but only time will tell what happens in reality.
Date of release has not been announced.
If the award of the 65th Cannes Film Festival for Best Actor goes away Aniello Arena, the star of the movie "Reality" by Matteo Garrone, the prize will receive the director himself. The actor is now in the Tuscan prison, serving a life sentence for murder.
According to British newspaper Telegraph, Arena is one of the candidates for the prize for Best Actor. In "Reality", he plays the Neapolitan fishmonger who gradually becomes obsessed with filming a reality show, Italian analogue of "House-2". I can not say that the film was very warmly received at Cannes, but the work of Aniello was marked by many journalists.
In fact, Arena is one of the murderers of the Neapolitan mafia - Camorra, which arose in the XVIII century. It is considered that the scale of the Camorra crime has no parallel in Europe. In 2006 a has been published a book by Roberto Saviano, "Gomorrah" on which Matteo Garrone shoot the same film, nominated for "foreign" "Oscar."
A native of Naples, Aniello Arena was arrested on Christmas Eve in 1991 for killing three people and sentenced to life imprisonment. He had never tried himself as an actor, but 12 years after his arrest came to the prison theater troupe Fortezza and eventually became a major star among the prisoners.
Garrone has opened Arena while watching the performance troupe in prison, "Volterra" in Tuscany. He wanted to give Aniello role in "Gomorrah," but the judges decided that the theme of the movie is too close to the real life of a prisoner and did not allow him to prove himself on the ground of cinema. "Perhaps the story of the "Reality” seemed more appropriate because it is more like a fairy tale" - says the director.
According to Mateo, Arena has developed a personal hero.
"Can you imagine this man who for 20 years is in prison, opened to the world, of which he had no idea! Aniello - a true professional - says the founder of the troupe Armando Puntso. - He is a very versatile actor and copes equally well with both drama and comedy. Recently, he played with us in the play "Gamlisa." It is a blend of "Hamlet" to "Alice in Wonderland." Will he win at Cannes or not, it is not so important. His story is in itself worthy of attention. "
For work, Arena has been released of camera in the morning, but in the evening he was obliged to return to the place of detention. As a result, his name is now mentioned along with Brad Pitt, Jean-Louis Trentiyan, Marion Cotillard and Nicole Kidman - stars of Cannes 2012.
Interestingly, in February of this year's Berlin Film Festival won the Italian Taviani brothers movie “Caesar must die", the effect of which is developed for the staging of Shakespeare's plays in an Italian prison. All the prisoners who participated in the project, prior to their arrest were members of various mafia groups. Most of the "actors" get a life sentence. Will the work of inmates a trend in a movie, time will show.
