It’s a very quiet beginning of week in Natland, but here are a few tidbits for you all, guys.
-First of all, Annihilation continues filming in England, and this weekend were shooting scenes in Aldershot, southwest of London. Unfortunately no photos where the actors appear, but a (distant) Instagram picture of night shooting:
–Jackie, the biopic starring Natalie, is currently in postproduction. Chilean director Pablo Larraín has been interviewed by
He is currently in the editing room on his first English-language film, Jackie, which follows the movements of Jacqueline Kennedy after the assassination of her husband, President John F Kennedy. Natalie Portman stars in the eponymous role.
Larrain told me he was excited to get back to editing the Darren Aronofsky-produced film. “Cinema is to fabricate an accident and then that accident happens in a way that I don’t control and I don’t want to control it. I’m fascinated by the idea that at some point we’ll understand and see what we are making. I’m right there. I have a sense of where it’s going, but the pleasure of sitting in the editing room is something that I am expecting very gladly… I don’t know exactly where it is, but I can tell you for sure that it won’t be a classic biopic.”
Finally, although the movie does not have USA distributor yet, it seems that Fox Searchlight would be interested in the film:
Also on the specialty release front, The Orchard nabbed North American rights to Pablo Larrain’s Spanish-language film Neruda. Seven minutes of footage from the director’s Natalie Portman starrer Jackie also generated heat, and though there was not a domestic deal for the first lady biopic at press time, Fox Searchlight is said to have the right of first refusal.
