from The Wrap
Code Entertainment is financing the film, which will recast the lead role of military interrogator Eric Maddox 
Robert Pattinson has exited “Mission: Blacklist,” an indie thriller about the hunt for Saddam Hussein, due to scheduling issues, TheWrap has learned. 
First announced in May 2012, Pattinson was attached to play military interrogator Eric Maddox, who spearheaded Hussein's capture. 
With two films premiering at Cannes, Pattinson is coming off a very active period. He just wrapped Anton Corbijn's “Life” with Dane DeHaan and did not have sufficient time to prepare for his demanding role in “Mission: Blacklist,” an individual familiar with the situation told TheWrap. 
The role of Maddox will now be recast, and the filmmakers hope to start production this fall. 
Swedish filmmaker Jesper Ganslandt remains attached to direct from a script by “Band of Brothers” scribe Erik Jendresen, Dylan Kussman and Trace Sheehan, who adapted Harper Collins’ 2008 book “Mission: Black List #1,” written by Maddox and Davin Seay.
Preferred Content's Ross Dinerstein is producing with Jendresen and Kevin Waller, as well as Bart Rosenblatt of Code Entertainment, which is also financing the film. 
Pattinson has a busy spring with two films heading to Cannes — David Cronenberg's “Maps to the Stars” and David Michod's “The Rover,” which also stars Guy Pearce.
Looking ahead, Pattinson is attached to star alongside Benedict Cumberbatch in James Gray's “The Lost City of Z” and the James Marsh thriller “Hold On to Me” with Carey Mulligan. He's repped by WME, 3 Arts Entertainment, Curtis Brown Group and attorney Robert Offer.

“The Rover” is a “WATCH” in the Vulture "Summer Movie Preview 2014: Which Movies Should You Watch, Stream, or Skip?"

Forbidding Locations
We’re psyched for The Rover, which was helmed by Animal Kingdom director David Michod and casts Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson into the Australian outback for them to play out a crime thriller. Perhaps while they’re there, they might run into Mia Wasikowska, who spends Tracks wandering the Outback for months on her own (and offers a lot of gorgeous, formidable scenery). Stream that one, and skip God’s Pocket — this story of a small town full of dangerous, scummy lowlifes has a lot of great talent attached (like star Philip Seymour Hoffman and director John Slattery) but amounts to very little.

What is Pattinson doing with James Dean? 
The shooting of the film have just ended. Now we just have to wait, confidently, the release date in theaters for Life. We expect long lines at the entrance to the theaters because this film, directed by Anton Corbijn (director of Control a biopic on the leader of Joy Division, Ian Curtis), has good chances to irresistibly attract the audience. Especially the female audience. The film tells in fact the very last years of the life of James Dean, one of the most famous, tenacious and fascinating myths from Hollywood. 59 years have passed from his death ( the 24-year-old man ran to his death with his Porsche launched at breakneck speed near Cholame, California). Yet his appearance of a rebel, his pouting mouth as a bored boy, still continues to captivate many girls. 
In Life the Dean role is played by Dane De Haan, blond 28-year-old. He will be also in theaters from April 23 in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, where he plays the role of the friend / enemy of Peter Parker, Harry Osborne (in the previous movie trilogy the same role was played by James Franco, who has curiously also played James Dean in a TV movie in 2001). Dane Dehaan actually is similar at the star of the 50s: dark circles, dark and elusive look. And their names are similar in sound (Dean-De Haan). 
In any case, by now we have more confidence and passion for the other protagonist of the film, the 27 -year-old Robert Pattinson. The former Twilight vampire plays Dennis Stock, Magnum photographer who tighten with the star of Rebel Without a Cause a deep connection both professional and human . In Life the subject is the journey that the two men did from Los Angeles to New York shortly before Dean became a superstar. Along the way, Stock snapped the actor some photos that become mythical , and later published in Life magazine (which is why this is the title chosen for the film ). ” I liked James, but not always, and then work with him was a mess. But after a while he became my family,” said Stock. Stock survived his friend star for 55 years, dying in 2010 after having had an extraordinary career and having photographed and eternalize many other stars , from Marilyn Monroe to Audrey Hepurn. But a picture from his work remains the coolest: James Dean, with his hands in his pockets and a cigarette in his mouth, walking in the rain in Times Square. Cold, restless, unforgettable.

This chilling fable about the rise of fascism in the 20th Century tells the story of a young American boy living in France in 1918 whose father is working for the US government on the creation of the Treaty of Versailles. What he witnesses helps to mold his beliefs – and we witness the birth of a terrifying ego.
Loosely inspired by the early childhood experiences of many of the great dictators of the 20th century and infused with the same sense of dread as The Others and The Omen, (The) Childhood Of a Leader is an ominous portrait of emerging evil.

I'll just post Rob's part... he talks about his co-star, Julianne (Moore) Mia (Wasikowska), about working as Jerome... and we've got David Cronenberg and Martin Katz talking about working with him...!

So, Enjoy the read....!!
from Pathe
“Plus we’re both dual-disorder” 
When Agatha Weiss returns to Los Angeles, she makes an instant connection with the first person she encounters: her limo driver, a would-be screenwriter who chauffeurs the far more successful, and who becomes increasingly entangled in her larger-than-life drama.
Taking the role of Jerome is leading star Robert Pattinson, who wanted to work with Cronenberg again on the heels of taking the lead role in Cosmopolis (coincidentally, Pattinson played a billionaire who is a limo passenger throughout that film.)  
He was one of the first cast members to sign on, which Martin Katz says helped buy the project. “Robert’s enthusiasm for Maps to the Stars is one of the things that really got us underway. Jerome is not a large role but it’s very significant in the story and his joining the cast gave us a terrific amount of momentum,” recalls the producer. “In a sense he is playing Bruce Wagner, who was himself at one time a limo driver and unemployed writer.”  
Cronenberg was thrilled to reunite with Pattinson, and in such a different kind of role. “I think Rob was really happy to be part of an ensemble,” he says.“But Jerome is also a critical character, a lovely character and it was a chance for Rob to give a more naturalistic performance. I knew he would be fabulous and he was.”  
Pattinson’s experience working on Cosmopolis with Cronenberg was so profound that he agreed to the role of Jerome before reading the script. But when he finally sat down to read it, he recalls, “Within two pages I was thinking wow, this is so unbelievably different and hilarious. I don't even know what people are going to make of this, but it feels dangerous. It’s sort of satirical but it’s also a ghost story and it’s also a kind of thriller. It defies genre.”  
He came to see Maps To The Stars as more than just another L.A. story. “It’s really about people who lie to themselves – right up until the end,” he summarizes.  
Yet within all that, Pattinson sees Jerome as the most ordinary of the film’s roster of outrageously deluded and desperate characters -- typical of a certain kind of everyday L.A. dreamer, a regular guy with a regular job who nevertheless always believes he is just one move away from becoming a major actor and writer.  
“Jerome would never accept that he is just a limo driver. I think he feels he’s just waiting for his break,” Pattinson observes. “And yet, he’s seemingly the only one in this story who's not going insane -- or who isn’t a ghost. He's a fairly normal guy, which is slightly odd for me, as well.”  
Working with his fellow cast members was another big draw for Pattison. Of Julianne Moore, he says: “She’s hilarious and also very sane, which is kind of ironic given who Havana Segrand is. And she shifts so subtly into character, you barely notice what she is doing. It’s kind of amazing.” 
He worked most closely with Mia Wasikowska as Agatha, who comes to rely on Jerome as her sole friend in the city. “I knew Mia was going to be wonderful in this,” he says. “She’s so lovely that it was horrible for me to watch Agatha be bullied by her entire family.”  
For Cronenberg, the chance to work with cast members like Pattinson and Gadon multiple times is one of the most gratifying aspects of his career. “It's really beautiful for me to see that blossoming and the evolution of actors as I work with them,” he concludes. 
ROBERT PATTINSON (Jerome Fontana) is best known for his portrayal of the vampire Edward Cullen in The Twilight Saga . Most recently, Pattinson appeared on screen in David Cronenberg’s Cosmopolis and will be seen this summer in David Michôd’s The Rover , in which he’s paired with Guy Pearce. He recently wrapped work on Werner Herzog’s Queen of the Desert opposite Nicole Kidman. Currently, Anton Corbijn is directing Pattinson in Life , a film about th e friendship between Life magazine photographer Dennis Stock, played by Pattinson, and James Dean, played by Dane Dehaan. 
Pattinson gained industry notice at 19 years of age when he joined the Harry Potter franchise in Mike Newell‘s Harry Potter and the Go blet of Fire, playing Cedric Diggory, Hogwarts’ official representative in the Triwizard Tournament. Last year, Pattinson starred in Water For Elephants , joining director Francis Lawrence and costars Reese Witherspoon and Christoph Waltz in bringing the Ne w York Times bestselling novel to the screen. Prior, he headlined the drama Remember Me , directed by Allen Coulter, appearing opposite Pierce Brosnan, Chris Cooper and Emilie De Ravin. Pattinson starred in Bel Ami , a film based on the novel of the same nam e written by Guy de Maupassant in which he played a young journalist in Paris who betters himself through his connections to the city’s most glamorous and influential women, played by Uma Thurman,Kristin Scott Thomas and Christina Ricci. 
Pattinson began his professional career with a role in Uli Edel’s Sword of Xanten, opposite Sam West and Benno Furmann. He also appeared in director Oliver Irving’s How to Be, winner of the Slamdance Film Festival’s Special Honorable Mention for Narrative Feature. Pattinso n played the lead role of Salvador Dali in Little Ashes, directed by Paul Morrison. His television credits include “The Haunted Airman” for the BBC. 
As a member of the Barnes Theatre Group, Pattinson played the lead role in Thornton Wilder’s “Our Town.” Ot her stage credits include Cole Porter’s “Anything Goes,” “Tess of the D’Urbevilles” and “Macbeth” at the OSO Arts Centre.

Notes de Production de "Maps to the Stars"

via Pathe
"De plus, nous avons tous les deux un dédoublement de la personnalité" 
Quand Agatha Weiss retourne à Los Angeles, elle établit une connexion immédiate avec la première personne qu'elle rencontre: son chauffeur de limousine, un scénariste en devenir qui conduit des acteurs plein de succès et il va rapidement se retrouver empêtré dans l'énorme drame qu'est sa vie à elle. 
Dans le rôle de Jerome on a la star Robert Pattinson, qui voulait retravailler avec Cronenberg après avoir eu le rôle principal dans Cosmopolis (coïncidence, dans ce film, Pattinson a incarné un milliardaire qui est le passager d'une limousine tout au long du film.)
Ce fut l'un des premiers acteurs à avoir signé, et Martin Katz dit que cela a aidé à vendre le projet. "L'enthousiasme de Robert pour Maps to the Stars est vraiment une des choses qui nous a faites avancer. Jerome n'est pas un grand rôle mais il est important dans l'histoire et le fait qu'il s'est joint aux autres acteurs nous a donné un élan incroyable," se souvient le producteur. "D'une certaine manière il interprète Bruce Wagner, qui lui même, à une époque, a été chauffeur de limousine et un scénariste sans emploi." 
Cronenberg était ravi de refaire équipe avec Pattinson, et dans un rôle tellement différent. "Je pense que Rob était vraiment ravi de faire partie de l'aventure," dit il. "Mais Jerome est également un personnage crucial, un personnage adorable et ce fut l'occasion pour Rob d'offrir une performance plus naturelle. Je savais qu'il serait fabuleux et il l'a été." 
L'expérience de Pattinson et son travail sur Cosmopolis avec Cronenberg était tellement profonds qu'il a accepté le rôle de Jerome avant même de lire le script. Mais quand il est enfin venu faire une première lecture, il se souvient,"A peine 2 pages plus tard et je me disais 'Waouh', c'est incroyablement différent et hilarant. Je ne sais même pas comment les gens vont réagir, mais ça semble dangereux. C'est en quelque sorte satirique mais il y a aussi une histoire de fantômes et c'est aussi une sorte de thriller. Ça défie tous les genres." 
Il a considéré Maps To The Stars comme autre chose qu'une énième histoire sur L.A. "Ca parle vraiment des gens qui se mentent à eux même – du début à la fin." conclue t-il
Et malgré tout cela, Pattinson voit Jerome comme le plus ordinaire des personnages du film, tous plus outrageusement délurés et désespérés les uns que les autres -- typique d'un certain genre de rêveur qu'on peut trouver quotidiennement à L.A., un mec banal avec un job banal qui cependant croit toujours qu'il est à deux doigts de devenir un important acteur et scénariste. 
"Jerome n'accepterait jamais de n'être qu'un simple chauffeur de limousine. Je pense qu'il croit qu'il attend tout simplement de pouvoir percer," observe Pattinson. "Et pourtant,il semble être le seul dans cette histoire à ne pas devenir fou – ou qui n'est pas un fantôme. C'est vraiment un mec plus que banal, ce qui est légèrement étrange pour moi aussi." 
Travailler avec ses autres collègues fut un autre attrait pour Pattinson. De Julianne Moore, il dit : "Elle est très marrante et très saine d'esprit, ce qui est assez ironique vu son personnage Havana Segrand. Et elle se met avec subtilité dans le peau de son personnage, on voit à peine ce qu'elle fait. C'est assez impressionnant." 
C'est de Mia Wasikowska (Agatha) qu'il a été le plus proche sur le plateau, qui finit par se reposer sur Jerome qui sera son seul ami en ville. "Je savais que Mia serait formidable dans ce film," dit il "Elle est tellement adorable que c'était horrible pour moi de voir Agatha mise à mal par toute sa famille" 
Pour Cronenberg, la chance de travailler avec des acteurs comme Pattinson et Gadon à plusieurs reprises est l'un des aspects les plus gratifiants de sa carrière. "C'est vraiment beau pour moi de voir cette éclosion et cette évolution d'acteurs avec qui je travaille," conclue t-il.

"The Rover.... Production notes....


like for "Maps to the Stars" yesterday, we now have the Production Notes for "The Rover"...
to learn a bit more about the movie, the main characters, the storyline and the writer...

Enjoy the read...

Note di produzione 

Diretto da David Michôd e basato su una storia scritta dallo stesso regista in coppia con Joel Edgerton, The Rover è ambientato in Australia dieci anni dopo il crollo dell'economia occidentale, in un contesto in cui le miniere sono ancora attive e hanno attirato gli uomini più disperati e pericolosi e in cui la sopravvivenza è una lotta quotidiana. Protagonista della vicenda è Eric, un vagabondo che si è lasciato tutto alle spalle e che è pieno di rabbia per il furto da parte di una gang della sua auto, l'unica cosa che gli era rimasta. La sua unica possibilità di ritrovare l'auto è data da Rey, uno dei mebri della banda che è stato abbandonato dopo essere stato ferito. Costretti dalle circostanze, i due uomini faranno coppia per un viaggio di cui nessuno avrebbe mai potuto prevedere il risultato.
Nonostante si svolga in un futuro prossimo, The Rover è nelle intenzioni degli autori un'opera sulla contemporaneità, sulla capacità delle economie occidentali di autodistruggersi a causa della loro stessa avidità e sul cambiamento inevitabile degli equilibri di potere a livello globale. Parlando di tematiche che spaziano dalle brame di potere alla distruzione dell'ambiente passando per i disperati tentativi dell'uomo per non affondare in tale disastrata società, The Rover non è però un film distopico e la situazione descritta, quella di un mondo saccheggiato e vuotato da forze e sistemi del tutto reale, appare plausibile e possibile. 
Come in una sorta di futuristico western, a far da sfondo alla vicenda è l'outback australiano, dove individui di tutto il mondo arrivano per lavorare nelle miniere che alimentano il nuovo ordine mondiale nelle mani dell'Asia: la stessa Australia ha in parte evitato il collasso economico nel 2008 grazie alle esportazioni verso la Cina e la forza della sua industria mineraria. 
Fotografato da Natasha Braier, che ha optato per il formato Super 35, The Rover è stato girato nell'arco di sette settimane (dal 28 gennaio al 16 marzo 2013) nel deserto meridionale dell'Australia, nella catena dei monti Flinders. Tra i vari luoghi che hanno fatto da location, il più importante è la cittadina di Marree, a otto ore di auto da Adelaide e vicina al lago Eyre. Popolata da soli 90 abitanti, Marree è l'ultima frontiera di civiltà prima di arrivare nel deserto e ha ospitato volentieri la troupe di Michôd, mettendo a disposizione della scenografa Josephine Ford le abitazioni e un piccolo albergo.
Personaggi principali di The Rover sono due uomi molto diversi tra loro. Il primo, Eric, è un australiano violento ed amareggiato, un ex soldato misantropo che ha perso la sua fattoria e la sua famiglia e che, da antieroe, non desidera altro che riottenere indietro ciò che gli è stato rubato da tre criminali: l'auto con un misterioso sacco. Il secondo, Rey, invece è un semplice e ingenuo giovanotto americano, la cui età non gli permette di ricordare il tempo in cui le cose stavano diversamente. Come molti altri degli individui di The Rover, Rey è arrivato in Australia insieme al fratello maggiore Henry per trovare lavoro nel settore minerario e si è ritrovato ad interagire con cinesi, cambogiani e ovviamente australiani, finendo con il ritrovarsi imbrigliato nelle azioni poco lecite di Henry e dei sue due amici Archie e Caleb. 
Interpretati rispettivamente da Guy Pearce e Robert Pattinson, i due uomini si lanciano all'inseguimento di individui pericolosi, ritrovandosi coinvolti in una serie continua di azione, tensione, pericolo e colpi di scena. Lungo la strada, inoltre, si ritrovano a dover affrontare anche le pieghe della loro confusione emotiva. 
L'attore Scott McNairy interpreta Henry, il fratello maggiore di Rey, mentre il cast principale di The Rover comprende i nomi di David Field (è Archie), di Tawanda Manyimo (è Caleb), e di Gillian Jones, Anthony Hayes e Susan Prior.

Production Notes 
Directed by David Michôd and based on a story written by the director himself paired with Joel Edgerton, The Rover is set in Australia a decade after the collapse of the western economy, in a context in which the mines are still active and have attracted men more desperate and dangerous and where survival is a daily struggle. The protagonist of the story is Eric, a drifter who has left everything behind and who is full of anger at the theft by a gang of his car, the only thing he had left. His only chance of finding the car is given by Rey, one of the Mebra band which was abandoned after being injured. Forced by circumstances, the two men will pair up for a trip that no one could have predicted the outcome. 
Notwithstanding take place in the near future, The Rover is the intention of the authors work on the contemporary, the ability of Western economies to self-destruct because of their own greed and the inevitable change in the balance of power globally. Speaking of issues ranging from the lust for power to the destruction of the environment through the desperate attempts of man to not sink in that dysfunctional society, The Rover, however, is not a dystopian film and described the situation, that of a world pillaged and drained forces and systems quite real, plausible and possible. 
As a sort of futuristic western, as a backdrop to the story is the ‘outback ’Australia, where people from all over the world come to work in the mines which supply the new world order in the hands of Asia: Australia has the same partially avoided the economic collapse in 2008 thanks to exports to China and the strength of its mining industry. 
Photographed by Natasha Braier, who has opted for the Super 35 format, The Rover was shot over seven weeks (from 28 January to 16 March 2013) in the southern desert of Australia, in the chain of the Flinders Ranges. Among the various places that were the location, the most important is the town of Marree , eight hours drive from Adelaide and close to Lake Eyre. Populated by only 90 inhabitants, Marree is the last frontier of civilization before arriving in the desert and gladly hosted the crew of Michôd, providing the designer Josephine Ford homes and a small hotel. 
The main characters of The Rover are two very different men. The first, Eric, is a violent and bitter Australian, a former soldier Misanthrope who lost his farm and his family and anti-hero, not want to regain back what was stolen from three criminals: the car with a mysterious bunch. The second, Rey, is a simple and naive American youngster, whose age does not allow him to remember the time when things were different. Like many other individuals of The Rover, Rey arrived in Australia along with his elder brother Henry to find work in the mining sector and is found to interact with Chinese, Cambodians and of course, ending with the Aussies find themselves in legal actions soon harnessed by Henry and his two friends Archie and Caleb. 
Played by Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson, the two men throw in pursuit of dangerous individuals, finding himself caught up in an ongoing series of action, tension, danger and plot twists. Along the way, also, find themselves having to face even the folds of their emotional confusion. 
The actor Scott McNairy plays Henry, the elder brother of Rey, while the main cast of The Rover ’s David names includes Field (Archie), Tawanda Manyimo (Caleb), and Gillian Jones, Anthony Hayes and Susan Prior.”

The Rover: Les conséquences de l'effondrement économique dans un futur proche
Réalisé par David Michôd et adapté d'une histoire écrite par le réalisateur lui même en collaboration avec Joel Edgerton, The Rover se déroule en Australie, une décennie après l'effondrement de l'économie occidentale, dans un contexte où les mines sont encore actives et où elles ont attiré les hommes les plus dangereux et les plus désespérés dans un monde où la survie est une lutte quotidienne. Le protagoniste de l'histoire est Eric, un vagabond qui n'a rien laissé derrière lui et qui est plein de rage après qu'un gang lui ait volé sa voiture, sa dernière possession. Son unique chance de retrouver sa voiture lui est offerte par Rey, l'un des membres du gang Mebra qui a été abandonné après avoir été blessé. Par la force des choses, les deux hommes vont collaborer pour un voyage dont personne n'aurait pu prédire l'issue.

Malgré le fait que cela se passe dans un futur proche, The Rover a l'intention par le biais de ses scénaristes d'évoquer un monde contemporain, la capacité des économies occidentales à s'auto-détruire à cause de leur propre avidité et du changement inévitable dans l'équilibre des forces mondiales. En parlant des soucis issus de cette soif de pouvoir et de la destruction de l'environnement par la biais des tentatives désespérées de l'Homme à ne pas sombrer dans cette société dysfonctionnelle, The Rover, cependant, n'est pas un film dystopique et il décrit la situation, celle d'un monde pillé et drainé de ses forces et des systèmes assez réalistes, plausibles et possibles.

En quelques sorte un western futuriste, avec l'arrière pays australien en tant que toile de fond à l'histoire, où les gens venus du monde entier viennent travailler dans les mines qui offrent le nouvel ordre mondial dirigé par l'Asie: l'Australie a même partiellement évité l'effondrement économique de 2008 grâce aux exportations Chinoises et la force de son industrie de la mine.

Photographié par Natasha Braier, qui a opté pour le format Super 35, The Rover a été tourné sur plus de 7 semaines (du 28 janvier au 16 mars 2013) dans le désert du sud de l'Australie, dans les chaines montagneuses des Flinders Ranges. Parmi les nombreux endroits retenus pour le tournage, le plus important fut la ville de Marree, située à 8h de voiture d'Adelaide et proche de Lake Eyre. Avec une population d'environ 90 habitants, Marree est la dernière frontière de civilisation avant d'arriver dans le désert et elle a accueilli l'équipe de Michôd avec bonheur, procurant à la designer Josephine Ford des maisons et un petit hôtel.

Les personnages principaux de The Rover sont deux hommes très différents. Le premier, Eric, est un australien violent et amer, un ancien soldat Misanthrope qui a perdu sa ferme et sa famille, un anti-héros, qui veut récupérer ce qui lui a été volé par trois criminels: la voiture avec une mystérieuse cargaison. Le 2ème, Rey, est un jeune américain simple d'esprit et naïf, dont l'âge ne lui permet pas de se souvenir de l'époque où les choses étaient différentes. Comme de nombreux individus dans The Rover, Rey est arrivé en Australie avec son frère ainé, Henry, pour trouver du travail dans le secteur de la mine et il s'est retrouvé à interagir avec des chinois, des cambodgiens et bien entendu, il a fini avec des australiens qui se sont retrouvés dans des actions illégales rapidement dirigées par Henry et ses deux amis Archie et Caleb.

Incarnés par Guy Pearce et Robert Pattinson, les deux hommes se lancent à la poursuite d'individus dangereux et se retrouvent pris au piège dans une série d'action, de tension, de danger et de retournements de situation. En chemin, ils se retrouveront aussi à face à leur émotions contradictoires.

L'acteur Scott McNairy incarne Henry, le frère ainé de Rey, et les autres acteurs de The Rover sont Field (Archie), Tawanda Manyimo (Caleb), et Gillian Jones, Anthony Hayes et Susan Prior.

*TRAILER* en français pour "Maps of the Stars" de David Cronenberg... avec Robert Pattinson....


from @le_pacte

A Hollywood, la ville des rêves, se télescopent les étoiles : Benjie, 13 ans et déjà star; son père, Sanford Weiss, auteur à succès et coach des célébrités; sa cliente, la belle Havana Segrand, qu'il aide à se réaliser en tant que femme et actrice.
La capitale du Cinéma promet aussi le bonheur sur pellicule et papier glacé à ceux qui tentent de rejoindre les étoiles: Agatha, une jeune fille devenue, à peine débarquée, l'assistante d'Havana et le séduisant chauffeur de limousine avec lequel elle se lie, Jerome Fontana, qui aspire à la célébrité.
Mais alors, pourquoi dit-on qu'Hollywood est la ville des vices et des névroses, des incestes et des jalousies ? La ville des rêves fait revivre les fantômes et promet surtout le déchainement des pulsions et l'odeur du sang.

"Maps to the Stars".... Production notes....


the production notes for "Maps to the Stars" have been published...
and we learn a bit more about the movie, the main characters, the storyline and the writer.

Note di produzione 
Scritto da Bruce Wagner e diretto da David Cronenberg, Maps to the Stars intreccia la bellezza selvaggia di Los Angeles con la tragicomica e cupa storia di una famiglia di Hollywood i cui componenti, alle prese con gli implacabili fantasmi del loro passato, evidenziano quanto fama, successo e apprezzamento, comportino un alto costo da pagare.
Frutto di un lavoro durato due decenni, la sceneggiatura di Maps to the Stars risale ai primi anni Novanta e si rifà all'esperienza personale dello stesso Wagner, che prima di diventare sceneggiatore ha lavorato come autista di limousine (a lui si ispira il personaggio interpretato nel film da Robert Pattinson) a Hollywood e ha vissuto da vicino le turbolenze di un ambiente fatto di contraddizioni, di gloria e cattiveria, di ambizioni e illusioni, e di successo improvviso e clamorose cadute. Cambiando totalmente genere e allontanandosi dalle tematiche che lo hanno reso famoso, Cronenberg conMaps of the Stars realizza un anomalo dramma al cui centro si pone la folle famiglia dei Weiss: un padre guru, un figlio adolescente rubacuori e fresco di rehab, una madre intenta a mantenere alte le quotazioni del figlio attore e una figlia misteriosamente sfregiata e ossessionata dal tentativo di trovare un proprio posto nella cerchia familiare. A dar mistero alle dinamiche dei Weiss intervengono, però, una serie di presenze non in vita, di fantasmi, che mischiando ricordi, speranze fugaci e bisogni irrisolti, rispecchiano la contemporanea attenzione per temi come la morte, la depravazione e la risurrezione. 
Girato tra Toronto e Los Angeles, Maps to the Stars conta sulla direzione della fotografia di Peter Suschitzky (fedele collaboratore di Cronenberg dai tempi di Inseparabili), sulle scenografie di Carol Spier, sui costumi di Denise Cronenberg e sulle musiche di Howard Shore. 
Al centro di Maps of the Stars vi è il personaggio di Havana Segrand, una delle più celebri attrici di Hollywood da sempre all'ombra della sua ancora più leggendaria madre Clarice Taggart, attrice ancor più famosa morta in un incendio. Ad interpretare Havana e la madre Clarice sono rispettivamente Julianne Moore e Sarah Gadon, chiamate a dar vita ad una relazione madre/figlia che non conosce nemmeno i confini della morte. Mostro senza vergogna, Havana è una donna completamente isolata che vive in un mondo di finzione, dato che è come se non avesse una famiglia ed è molto arrabbiata con la madre per il modo in cui, secondo lei, è stata abusata. Il caos emotivo di cui è preda Havana prende una piega ancora più oscura quando il ruolo della madre in un film di prossima produzione potrebbe essere assegnato a un'altra e non a lei, facendole vedere il fantasma di Clarice nei momenti meno opportuni. 
A prima vista, i Weiss, invece, sembrano vivere un'esistenza felice ma guardandoli da vicino è possibile notare come in loro fama, ricchezza materiale e riconoscimenti, siano solo una cartina tornasole per dubbi, amarezze e pericolosi segreti, che vengono alla ribalta con l'entrata in scena di Agatha, la figlia da lungo tempo lontana da casa per via di problemi psichiatrici in seguito a un tragico incidente che l'ha lasciata terribilmente segnata con cicatrici e ustioni su viso e mani. Portata in scena da Mia Wasikowska, Agatha rientra a casa e, per volere del fato, trova lavoro a fianco di Havana.  
L'ultima persona che avrebbe voluto rivedere Agatha in famiglia è il padre Sanford, un guru che fa da psicologo in tv, offrendo banalità new age e dispensando consigli per le masse. Impersonato da John Cusack, Sanford annovera numerosi clienti celebri - uno di questi è proprio Havana Segrand - ed è fortemente attaccato al successo del figlio adolescente Benjie, star di una serie televisiva. Con il volto di Evan Bird, Benjie sta cercando di far il punto sulla sua carriera dopo esere finito in riabilitazione a causa di un problema di droga ma è costretto a confrontarsi con il fantasma del suo spirito adolescenziale. Chi difenderebbe sempre a spada tratta Benjie è la madre manager Cristina, interpretata da Olivia Williams. 
Tornando a Los Angeles, Agatha stringe una solida amicizia con Jerome, il suo autista di limousine. Inscenato da Robert Pattinson, Jerome è un aspirante sceneggiatore che si mantiene lavorando come autista ed è l'unico personaggio della storia che non viene sfiorato dalla pazzia o da un fantasma.

Production notes 
Written by Bruce Wagner and directed by David Cronenberg, Maps to the Stars weaves the rugged beauty of Los Angeles with it’s gloomy and tragic-comic story of a Hollywood family whose members, struggling with the relentless ghosts of their past , show how fame, success and appreciation, carry a high cost. 
The result of a job that lasted two decades, the screenplay Maps to the Stars dates back to the early nineties and is based on the personal experience of Wagner himself , who before becoming a writer worked as a limo driver (he was inspired by the character played in the film by Robert Pattinson) in Hollywood and has lived near the turbulence of an environment made up of contradictions, of glory and wickedness, ambitions and illusions, sudden success and sensational falls. 
Totally changing gender and moving away from the issues that have made him famous, with Maps of the Stars Cronenberg produces an abnormal drama at its center stands the members of the Weiss family : a guru father, a teenage son and heartthrob fresh from rehab , a mother intent on maintaining a high price for her actor son and a daughter mysteriously scarred and obsessed with trying to find herplace in the family circle . To give mystery to the dynamics of Weiss family, however, there are a number of appearances from the afterlife , ghosts , that mixing memories, fleeting hopes and unmet needs , reflect the contemporary focus on topics such as death, depravity and resurrection . 
Filmed in Toronto and Los Angeles, Maps to the Stars relies on the director of photography Peter Suschitzky ( faithful collaborator of Cronenberg’s Dead Ringers of the time ) , the production designer Carol Spier , costumes by Denise Cronenberg and music by Howard Shore. 
At the center of Maps of the Stars is the character of Havana Segrand, one of the most famous Hollywood actresses always in the shadow of her more legendary mother Clarice Taggart , even more famous actress who died in a fire. Playing Havana and her mother Clarice are Julianne Moore and Sarah Gadon respectively, showing that a relationship between mother / daughter does not even know the boundaries of death. Showing no shame, Havana is a woman who lives completely secluded in a world of fiction , as if she had no family and she’s very angry with her mother for the way which , according to her, she has been abused . The emotional chaos which marks Havana takes an even more obscure turn when her mother’s role in an upcoming film production could be assigned to another and not to her, making her see the ghost of Clarice at inopportune moments .
At first glance, the Weiss family, however, seem to live a happy life. But looking at them more closely you can see that in their fame, material wealth and honors, are just a litmus test for doubts , disappointments and dangerous secrets, which come to the fore with the entrance of Agatha , the daughter who has been away from home for a long time due to psychiatric problems as a result of a tragic accident that has left her terribly marked with scars and burns on her face and hands . Brought to the stage by Mia Wasikowska, Agatha comes home and, by fate, is working alongside Havana . 
The last person Agatha wanted to see in her family is her father Sanford, a guru who is a psychologist on TV, offering new age platitudes and dispensing advice to the masses. Played by John Cusack, Sanford has a number of celebrity clients – one of these is Havana Segrand – and he’s strongly attached to the success of his teenage son Benjie , star of a television series.Played by Evan Bird , Benjie is trying to make a comeback on his career after he ended up in rehab because of a drug problem but is forced to confront the ghost of his adolescent spirit. 
His mother and manager Cristina who would always defend Benjie to the hilt is played by Olivia Williams. 
Returning to Los Angeles, Agatha holds a solid friendship with Jerome, her limo driver. Staged by Robert Pattinson, Jerome is an aspiring writer who keeps working as a driver and is the only character in the story who is not touched by madness or by a ghost.

Summer Movie Preview: 40 Most Anticipated Films 
The temperatures are rising, the coats are going into storage, and the TV spots are getting more prevalent. That’s right, it’s almost time for summer movie season again. The months of May through August are traditionally the biggest in the multiplex calendar, but the lines have become increasingly blurred in recent years—if “Noah” and “Divergent” didn’t kick off blockbuster season, “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” certainly did, and that was three weeks ago.
But even so, things are different from the first weekend of May onwards, with at least one blockbuster hitting every week until mid August or so. So, with the release of season opener “The Amazing Spider-Man 2″ approaching (which we’ve already seen, and it’s fair to say that we’re not fans of), we thought we’d help you sort the wheat from the chaff by putting together the 40 films we’re most looking forward to over the next few months.
It’s an egalitarian mix of blockbusters and indies, united only by the fact that we’re looking forward to them, or in some cases we’ve already seen them 
1. “The Rover” 
Cast: Guy Pearce, Robert Pattinson, Scoot McNairy 
Synopsis: In a war-torn future beset by financial collapse, a man trudges across the Australian desert to locate his stolen car and secure the mysterious cargo found inside. 
Why It’s Worth Seeing: This is the first film for director David Michôd since his riveting debut “Animal Kingdom.” It’s been described as an existential western, and sees him reteam with Guy Pearce, with heartthrob Robert Pattinson and character actor favorite Scoot McNairy also on board. Michôd’s debut captured the sweeping scope of early Michael Mann mixed with Werner Herzog’s anthropological analysis of human behavior, crafting a debut that was both terrifying and utterly unforgettable. While he’s taking things in a vaguely sci-fi direction here, Michôd has promised that this will be a relatively grounded affair, a crime picture in the outback that could be indicative of a contemporary mashup of “Wake In Fright” (with the idea of an outsider stranded in the outback) and “Mad Max” (with its emphasis on vehicular action). It’s still under wraps beyond some impressive trailers, but more than anything else, we’re hopeful that a Midnight Screening premiere at Cannes bodes for this being something truly impressive. We’re tantalizingly close to finding out. 
Release Date: June 13th.


Anton Corbijn about Robert Pattinson and Dane DeHaan...

This photograph is our first publicity shot from the film LIFE that i am currently shooting in Canada and USA. It is the story of James Dean and photographer Dennis Stock, set in early 1955. In the back of the car sits Jimmy as played by Dane DeHaan and in the passenger seat is Dennis, played by Robert Pattinson. Both guys are fantastic and are giving the film very good energy despite the very harsh winter we encountered in Canada.
