New York Film Fest: ‘Inside Llewyn Davis’ Stars Praise Coens; T Bone Burnett & Marcus Mumford Talk Music

The Coen brothers were the most-talked-about people on the red carpet at Saturday night’s New York Film Festival premiere of their latest movie, Inside Llewyn Davis, even though the mercurial filmmakers chose not to speak to the press.

Nearly all of the actors in the film, from John Goodman to star Oscar Isaac, said the acclaimed writer-directors were what drew them to the project.

“I just jumped at the chance to work with the Coens,” cast member Garrett Hedlund told The Hollywood Reporter. “It was a phenomenal script as well, and when you see it’s a Coen brothers film, you know it’s going to be something special to say the least, the very least, the very, very much least. And when they said it’s going to be this odd guy that’s driving John Goodman around and being his valet, I [laughed] and I thought, ‘Where can I sign up?’ ”

…And Hedlund, who’s set to star in the TRON: Legacy sequel, said of that film: “Disney’s really trying to find a really great story. They have writers on that have been working all year trying to find a great story. Something to pre-vamp or re-vamp where they left off and something that’s solid. I’m excited to see what is. I know everybody else is.”

Public Appearances 2013 > NYFF – Inside Llewyn Davis Premiere

Garrett is in NYC for the red carpet premiere of Inside Llewyn Davis at the New York Film Festival. Tomorrow night is the special concert that is being held to celebrate the soundtrack, so it looks like Garrett might also show up there.

Showtime will be airing the concert in December.

From Indiewire:

Showtime Will Air Concert Doc ‘Another Day, Another Time: Celebrating the Music of ‘Inside Llewyn Davis”
‘Inside Llewyn Davis’ CBS Films

The Coen brothers’ “Inside Llewyn Davis” will open in limited release on December 6th, and the week after, Showtime will air a concert doc featuring live performances of the film’s music as well as some of the early ’60s songs that inspired it.

“Another Day, Another Time: Celebrating the Music of ‘Inside Llewyn Davis’” will air on Showtime on Friday, December 13th at 9pm, but the concert it’s documenting hasn’t yet taken place. It’s scheduled for this Sunday, September 29th at The Town Hall in New York and is planned to include performances from The Avett Brothers, Joan Baez, Rhiannon Giddens of Carolina Chocolate Drops, Lake Street Dive, Colin Meloy of The Decemberists, The Milk Carton Kids, Keb’ Mo’, Marcus Mumford, Bob Neuwirth, Conor Oberst, Punch Brothers, Dave Rawlings Machine, The Secret Sisters, Patti Smith, Gillian Welch, Willie Watson, and Jack White.

Oscar Isaac, the film’s star, is also set to perform, as are cast members Carey Mulligan, Adam Driver, Stark Sands and John Goodman.

The film will include behind-the-scenes material from “Inside Llewyn Davis” in addition to the concert footage, and is being produced by Joel and Ethan Coen as well as T Bone Burnett and Scott Rudin. A portion of the proceeds from the concert will benefit the National Recording Preservation Foundation.

And the first full length song from the soundtrack has been officially released. It’s Dink’s Song (Fare Thee Well) by Marcus Mumford and Oscar Isaac (and I may or may not have listened to it 10000 times in the last three days).

I’ll update this post with more pictures from the premiere as they become available.

I need to post this one because I love the opening line about the Coen Brothers – plus it gives a little more information about his role (like his character’s name) – Laura

 

Garrett Hedlund Is ‘Unbroken’ For Angelina Jolie

It looks like Garrett Hedlund is becoming the next Coen Brothers player. Sort of. The actor of course features in their funny, lovely and melancholy “Inside Llewyn Davis,” and in case you forgot, the sibling duo have also taken their pen to Angelina Jolie‘s next directorial effort “Unbroken.” Do you see where this is going?

Well, if you didn’t figure it out, Hedlund is boarding the WWII drama. Based on the book by Lauren Hillebrand, the film tells the true story of  Louis Zamperini, a former Olympian who endured medical experiments, slave labor, and brutal beatings as a Japanese POW during WWII. He became the target of one sadistic guard in particular, Mutsuhiro Watanabe, whose goal it was to break Zamperini. He endured his harsh punishment right though until the end of the war, but later suffered terrifying nightmares and alcoholism, but on the verge of losing everything, he found God and forgave his captors. Hedlund will play fellow P.O.W. Commander John Fitzgerald, with Jack O’Connell as Zamperini. Production begins next month for a Christmas Day 2014 release.

Angelina Jolie’s ‘Unbroken’ to Hit Theaters in December 2014

The release date puts the film adaptation of Laura Hillenbrand’s acclaimed 2010 book in the heart of awards season.

Universal has set a Christmas Day 2014 release for World War II drama Unbroken, which marks Angelina Jolie’s second directorial effort.

The coveted release positions the film — an adaptation of Laura Hillenbrand’s acclaimed 2010 book about World War II hero Lou Zamperini — for an awards run. Ethan and Joel Coen are writing the script from previous drafts by William Nicholson and Richard LaGravenese.

Universal picked up the rights to the book in January 2011, initially for Francis Lawrence to direct. Jolie boarded the project in December.

Garrett Hedlund Cast in Angelina Jolie-Helmed ‘Unbroken’

Hedlund’s addition was more than a month in the works, though he had to work out schedule conflicts before joining the film, which is set to begin shooting in October.

Garrett Hedlund has signed on for a supporting role in the Angelina Jolie-helmed drama Unbroken for Universal.

The story begins in 1943, when Zamperini’s Air Force plane crashed in the Pacific. He survived without food and water for 47 days, enduring shark attacks, aerial attacks and hunger before washing ashore on a Japanese island behind enemy lines, where he was held as a prisoner of war for two years and tortured by his captors.

Hedlund’s addition was more than a month in the works, though he had to work out schedule conflicts. The film is set to begin shooting in October.

Ethan and Joel Coen penned a recent draft of the screenplay, which is based on Laura Hillenbrand’s 2010 best-seller. Universal picked up the rights to the book in January 2011, and William Nicholson and Richard LaGravenese worked on previous drafts before Jolie took the film’s reins in December. The movie is scheduled to open in December 2014.

Hedlund recently starred in the Coen brothers’ Inside Llewyn Davis. Universal was interested in him to play the lead in Fifty Shades of Grey, but the actor bowed out before a formal offer was made.

Jolie is producing Unbroken with Matthew Baer and Erwin Stoff.

Hedlund is repped by WME, Brillstein Entertainment and attorney David Weber.

From Variety:

Universal Dates ‘Jurassic Park 4′; Renames It ‘Jurassic World’

jurassic world

On the same day Disney takes “Pirates of the Caribbean 5″ off its 2015 calendar, Universal has dated “Jurassic World,” the next installment in the “Jurassic Park,” franchise for June 12, 2015.

Colin Trevorrow will direct with a screenplay he co-wrote with Derek Connolly.

Plot details have not been released. Frank Marshall and Pat Crowley are producing.

In May, Uni post-poned production on the project in order for Trevorrow and Connolly to take a pass at an original draft by Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver and allow exec producer Steven Spielberg to give his notes as well.

The 2015 summer is already looking at a very competitive year with “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” a new “Batman-Superman” film and the next installment of the “Star Wars” franchise all expected to bow in 2015 and now auds can expect this film as well.

With the script now turned in, the studio will now look to casting the film. Uni had been eyeing Bryce Dallas Howard, David Oyelowo and Garrett Hedlund to star when they were prepping prior to the postponement and sources say they are still favorites to get offers when those go out.
