British actress Rosamund Pike is writing a new screenplay and is receiving help from novelist-screewriter Nick Hornby.
The 33-year-old has turned to author Hornby for help and advice, and admits he is giving her lots of tips to turn her work into a hit.
“I showed it to Nick. I`m able to take criticism – which is just as well, as I`m having to take big criticism,” telegraph.co.uk quoted Pike as saying.
Guy Pearce (‘Iron Man 3,’ ‘Lawless’) and British actress Rosamund Pike (‘Jack Reacher,’ ‘Wrath of the Titans’) are attached to star in the drama ‘Violet Town.’
Set in Australia in the 1950s, the film is based on Stephen Carroll’s 2010 novel ‘The Art Of The Engine,’ and is about a couple who attend a neighbour’s New Year’s Eve party where buried secrets are revealed. Bryan Brown (‘Beautiful Kate’) is also on board for a supporting role.
Mark Joffe (‘The Man Who Sued God,’ ‘The Matchmaker’) is directing, with the screenplay coming from Matt Cameron. Filming is scheduled for late 2013.
Now that the promotion for Jack Reacher is starting they are also releasing new tv spots, including one which featured Rosamund a lot. Check it out below!
Rosamund has been attending quite a few events in the past few months and I’ve finally added photos of all of them to the gallery. Be sure to check them out as she looks lovely in every one of them.
The first trailer for “Jack Reacher” was released earlier this week with a few glimpses of Rosamund. The movie will hit theaters in the US this year on December 21 followed by a December 26 release for the UK.
Rosamund Pike and Sam Neill have joined the cast of French filmmaker Pascal Chaumeil’s English-language debut “A Long Way Down.”
Pike and Neill join Pierce Brosnan, Toni Collette, Aaron Paul and Imogen Poots in the adaptation of Nick Hornby’s darkly comic best-seller, which has just started lensing in the U.K. and Spain.
The film is about four strangers who meet on New Year’s Eve on the top of a London skyscraper, who each had intended to jump off but make a pact to stay alive and help each other.
Pike has recently finished shooting Christopher McQuarrie’s “Jack Reacher” alongside Tom Cruise, and Edgar Wright’s “The World’s End” with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. She will team again with Pegg on “Hector and the Search for Happiness,” which shoots in January.
Neill was mostly recently seen in “The Vow,” alongside Channing Tatum and Rachel McAdams, and the J.J. Abrams exec produced skein “Alcatraz.”
“A Long Way Down” is produced by Finola Dwyer and Amanda Posey through their shingle Wildgaze Films. It is financed by BBC Films and DCM. International sales are being handled by HanWay Films.
Rosamund Pike and Christopher Plummer have been added to the cast of director Peter Chelsom’s drama/comedy Hector and the Search for Happiness. Based on the book of the same name by François Lelord, the film stars Simon Pegg as the titular Hector, an eccentric psychiatrist who’s going nowhere and whose patients aren’t getting any happier. One day, he musters up the courage to set out on a quest to find out if happiness really exists. It was announced today that Pike will play Hector’s long-time girlfriend, while Plummer is set as Professor Coreman, the leading guru for Happiness Studies at UCLA.
Pegg and Pike are actually set to first team up in Edgar Wright’s comedy The World’s End, which reunites the Shaun of the Dead/Hot Fuzz team of Wright, Pegg, and Nick Frost. Production on Hector and the Search for Happiness will begin in January, once Pegg and Pike have wrapped World’s End.
