Rosamund has narrated “Pride and Prejudice” for Audible and People.com has an exclusive first listen of the recording which you can check out on their site.
Rosamund Pike is revisiting her roots.
The Gone Girl star has teamed up with Amazon’s audiobook division Audible to narrate the Jane Austen classic Pride & Prejudice, and PEOPLE has an exclusive first listen to the recording.
The clip below is from chapter three, when the curmudgeonly Mr. Darcy skeptically eyes protagonist Elizabeth Bennett at a ball.
Between her delightful British accent and experience with the material (she starred in the 2005 film adaptation opposite Keira Knightley), Pike, 36, makes for an excellent, entertaining narrator.
Audible’s Pride & Prejudice audiobook featuring Pike is available for preorder and will be released Dec. 8.
IndieWire is reporting that Nick Hornby is writing a screenplay entitled “Everybody Loves You” which will be starring Rosamund.
The transformation of Nick Hornby from one of the major literary pioneers with a sort of sensitive Generation X masculinity (as with “Fever Pitch,” “High Fidelity” and “About A Boy”), to an Oscar-nominated screenwriter with particularly well-drawn female leads, is a fascinating one. Hornby made his screenwriting transition and picked up an Oscar nod, with “An Education” a few years back, and followed it up with last year’s “Wild,” before this year’s much-acclaimed “Brooklyn,” which seems all-but-certain to throw him into awards chat again.
He’s got the Helena Bonham Carter-starring BBC miniseries “Love, Nina” coming soon, but tells Jeff Goldsmith’s Q&A podcast that he’s got some terrific new projects coming up as well. First up is a twenty-minute drama for music video and VR pioneering director Chris Milk, which he says was “cooked up” by Milk and Spike Jonze. Beyond that, he’s writing an original comedy script for his “An Education” breakout Rosamund Pike, entitled “Everybody Loves You,” which is intended to shoot next spring, and says that he’s currently finishing up a project for Jason Reitman about a family of bank robbers, as revealed next year.
It’s a diverse and exciting stuff for a writer who admits that he’s currently doing more in the screenplay world than in the literary one (though his last book, “Funny Girl,” was terrific, and ripe for adaptation). Hornby’s also hit up the Nerdist podcast too: you can listen to the latter below, to Goldsmith’s full podcast here, and watch the excellent “Brooklyn” in theaters now.
The Weinstein Company has acquired U.S. rights to Cedric Jimenez’s Nazi-era thriller HHhH.
David Farr, Audrey Diwan and Jimenez wrote the screenplay, which is based on Laurent Binet’s 2012 international bestseller of the same name.
Jason Clarke, Rosamund Pike, Jack O’Connell, Jack Reynor and Mia Wasikowska star in HHhH, which stands for “Himmlers Hirn heisst Heydrich,” or “Himmler’s brain is called Heydrich.” The most lethal man in Hitler’s cabinet, Reinhard Heydrich, seemed indestructible until two exiled operatives, a Slovak and a Czech, killed him and changed the course of history. HHhH follows Jozef Gabcik and Jan Kubis from their dramatic escape from Nazi-occupied Czechoslovakia to their fatal attack on Heydrich and their own brutal deaths in the basement of a Prague church.
Legende Films’ Alain Goldman (La Vie en Rose, The Connection) and Red Crown’s Daniel Crown are producing the film, which began shooting earlier this month in Budapest.
“Laurent Binet’s novel was an impeccable, profoundly gripping piece of historical fiction that was destined to be made into a film,” TWC co-chairman Harvey Weinstein said. “It’s in the hands of an extraordinarily intelligent, bold group of filmmakers and actors, and we can’t wait to see it come to life.”
The deal for HHhH was negotiated by Dan Guando, Michal Podell Steinberg and James Gold for TWC. WME Global and Goldman repped the filmmakers.
Jack Davenport, who played British naval officer James Norrington in the “Pirates of the Caribbean” movies, is in final negotiations to join the cast of inter-racial love-story movie “A United Kingdom,” which will be directed by BAFTA-winning filmmaker Amma Asante, and stars “Selma’s” David Oyelowo and “Gone Girl’s” Rosamund Pike. Shooting on the film starts today in Botswana.
Davenport’s other credits include Matthew Vaughn’s movie “Kingsman: The Secret Service,” “Smash,” the NBC series about a Broadway musical, and PBS medical drama “Breathless.”
“A United Kingdom” has also added several other cast members: Tom Felton, who played Draco Malfoy in the “Harry Potter” franchise and also appeared in “Rise of the Planet of the Apes,” Nicholas Lyndhurst, who was three times BAFTA nominated for comedy “Only Fools and Horses…,” Laura Carmichael, who played Lady Edith Crawley in “Downton Abbey,” and Arnold Oceng, who starred alongside Reese Witherspoon in “The Good Lie.”
The script is written by Guy Hibbert, who has won four BAFTAs: for “No Child of Mine,” “Omagh,” “Five Minutes of Heaven” and “Complicit.”
The film tells the true story of the relationship between Seretse Khama, the chief to be of the powerful Bamangwato tribe in the British colony of Bechuanaland in the late 1940s, and a white, middle-class Englishwoman, Ruth Williams, and how hostility to their marriage exposed the racism of the British government. Khama later become the first president of Botswana, following its independence.
Oyelowo is producing the film alongside Rick McCallum, who produced the “Star Wars” prequels, Pathe’s Cameron McCracken, “The Help” producer Brunson Green, Justin Moore-Lewy and Charlie Mason. World sales and finance house Pathe Intl. is backing the pic.
Oyelowo was nominated for a Golden Globe for “Selma” and nominated for a Primetime Emmy for “Nightingale.” Pike received Oscar, BAFTA and SAG nominations for “Gone Girl.”
Asante’s filmmaking credits include 2004’s “A Way of Life,” for which she won a BAFTA, and 2014’s “Belle,” which was distributed by Icon Films in Australia, and Fox Searchlight in the U.S., U.K. and rest of the world. Felton also appeared in “Belle.”
