Rosamund is rumored to be set to join “The Spark”.
Fresh off her critically-acclaimed portrayal as a psychopath in David Fincher’s “Gone Girl”, Rosamund Pike books a lead role in “The Spark”. Adapted from Kristine Barnett’s memoir, it centers on a mother and her relationship with her autistic son Jacob.
When Barnett was told Jacob may never be able to tie his own shoes, she knew that she had to step in and make a difference in her son’s life. Against the advice of her husband, she pulled Jacob out of special education classes and worked with him to defy the odds of Autism controlling his life. The child would grow up to become a quantum physicist before the age of 13.
According to Tracking Board, the true-story pic was initially developed by Warner Bros. under the title “Scattered Skills”, but it is now moving forward at Relativity Media. Michael Cunningham is set to write the script based on the best-selling book “The Spark: A Mother’s Story of Nurturing, Genius, and Autism”.
When the all-new Thunderbirds Are Go gets underway this Saturday (ITV, 5pm), fans of the original 1960s series will be delighted to see many of their favourite characters again working to avert disasters for International Rescue. One of them, British aristocrat Lady Penelope Creighton Ward, is now voiced by British actress Rosamund Pike…
“I’m trying to make her a modern girl who is very much a fun-loving, intelligent, party girl,” says Rosamund who was nominated for an Oscar earlier this year for her lead role in Hollywood blockbuster Gone Girl.
“Lady Penelope is the daughter of Lord Creighton Ward, a political figure who obviously has important standing in society. She seems to the outside world to be a flighty ‘It Girl’ but she is far from it. The more she is of the here and now, the free-er she is to go anywhere and infiltrate whatever scene she needs in order to help International Rescue.
“Her power to disarm people is essential. She has a good sense of humour, she is strong and canny and she enjoys living on the dangerous side of life. Though, of course, she also enjoys a nice cup of tea!”
Of course it wouldn’t be Lady Penelope without her trusty chauffeur Parker, who is voiced again by David Graham, the original actor from the 1960s series, who’s now 89.
‘She has a great ally in Parker, her driver and bodyguard,” explains Rosamund. “Exploring the scenes with David Graham has been an absolute delight. The scripts are very modern, very fresh and very funny. We’re all eagerly anticipating our next stint in the recording studio!”
There’s another link with the 1960s for Rosemund in an episode later in the series. Sylvia Anderson, who voiced the original puppet version of Lady Penelope, will voicing Lady Penelope’s Great Aunt Sylvia…
“The day Sylvia Anderson came into play Great Aunt Sylvia was so exciting,” Rosamund says of the wife of Gerry Anderson, who created Thunderbirds. “I think we both gave our versions of “Home Parker” just for fun! She and David Graham have wonderful stories about the early days of recording and how they battled with un-sound proofed studios. They didn’t even have a studio as far as I recall, I think they were using an old hotel or factory!”
* Thunderbirds Are Go begins on Saturday April 4, ITV, at 5pm
Last night were the Empire Awards and Rosamund won the award for Best Actress for her work in “Gone Girl”. Unfortunately Rosamund was unable to attend the show but a video message was played of her accepting the award. Two photos from the video during the show have been added to our gallery.
Poor Rosamund Pike.
Her win at last night’s Empire Awards proved to be bitter sweet as she was unable to collect her prize in person.
The 36-year-old actress received countless nominations for her portrayal of Amy Dunne in Gone Girl including at the Academy Awards, Screen Actors Guild, Golden Globes and BAFTAs, but each time walked away empty handed.
The Brit star’s luck finally changed however, when she was named best actress at the Empire Awards 2015.
Appearing via a video link show at last night’s ceremony in London, she said: ‘I cannot believe that the one time I can’t attend an award ceremony is the one time I win.
Adding: ‘I’ve become so accomplished at losing I have no idea what to say now I’ve won.’
Sure, movie posters may proclaim all the time that they’ve got the “best” or “most thrilling” thing you’ve ever seen. But when a real F.B.I. agent calls someone “one of the most disturbing female villains in movie history” and a “cold, calculating psychopath,” you pay attention. Congratulations, Gone Girl’s Amy Dunne—even the professionals are terrified of you.
In this video, part of the ongoing VF Confidential Presents: Psych of a Psycho, F.B.I. agent Candice Delong goes over Amy Dunne’s (Rosamund Pike) many, many crimes, and speculates it might all be a result of Munchausen syndrome, not simply sheer, cold villainy. It’s crammed full of spoilers for Gone Girl—brace yourself for blood!—but after it was a joke at the Oscars, aren’t we past that point? And more importantly, isn’t Amy Dunne fascinating enough to merit lots and lots of discussion, out in the open?
