This Week In Movies… ‘The Canyons,’ ‘Europa Report,’ ‘Drift’

07.29.2013 | By |

Unlike the previous two weeks, this particular week of theatrical releases doesn’t really have anything I’d trip over to see. I mean, Smurfs 2 is on the menu, that should tell you what us moviegoers are dealing with here. Perhaps the more interesting of the bunch are Europa Report for its premise, a film directed by Ecuadorian Sebastian Cordero starring Sharlto Copley (District 9) and The Canyons anchored by Lindsay Lohan. The latter seems to be the one to see this week for the pop culture puns and references she begets. Read the rest of the plot lines and see who’s starring in them… something just might catch your eye. Read More

Spanish director Fernando Trueba set to shoot new film

Spanish director Fernando Trueba, who won the foreign-language Oscar in 1994 for “Belle Epoque,” is set to helm French-language pic “L’Artiste et son modele.”

From a screenplay by Trueba and Jean-Claude Carriere, who co-authored many late Luis Bunuel‘s films, including “Belle Toujours” and “The Phantom of Liberty,” the comedic drama will topline vet Gallic thesp Jean Rochefort (“The Hairdresser’s Husband”) as a painter of female nudes, and up-and-coming Spanish actress Aida Folch, who first caught notice in Trueba’s 2002 “The Shanghai Spell,” as his model.

Lensing spring/summer 2010, “Artiste” is produced by Cristina Huete for Fernando Trueba P.C., Trueba’s Madrid-based label.

Set in occupied France in 1943, it turns on an ageing hedonist painter and his relationship with beauty and with beautiful women, Huete said. She aims to structure “Artiste” as a co-production with France.

“Artiste” is the third project to come together after Trueba spent much of 2002 to 2007 writing a bevy of feature screenplays.

Trueba’s genre-hopping “The Dancer and the Thief,” from a novel by “Il Postino” writer Antonio Skarmeta, is in post, and looks set to be one of Spain’s big fall bows.

Animation romancer “Chico y Rita,” which is co-directed by Trueba and Javier Mariscal, should be ready for delivery spring 2010. Pic, which is set in the late 40s Cuba and New York jazz scene, is produced with London’s Magic Light Pictures and Mariscal’s Barcelona-based Estudio Mariscal.
