Shut up, Santa! / Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year / »Nero Fiddled« gets distributor and summer release

Shut up, Santa! Graphic by Dominik Keppner for Ellen Page Online

One of the major benefits of running a web site dedicated to an internationally acclaimed actress is that you inevitably get in touch with people from all over the world. While most of them just want to know how they can get an autograph of Ellen or contact her, there are others who don't forget about the human factor behind this online resource and realize how much effort it takes to create such a place and keep it up to date. With the end of the year approaching, I would like to thank the following individuals for helping me in large and small ways and making Ellen Page Online what it is today:

# Jim Hodgkinson, Canada # Thank you for being my right hand for several years now. I'm infinitely grateful that you patiently proof read all the news entries on this site, you always have an ear for me and you are on the spot any time. EPO wouldn't be the same without your constant involvement in the background. I hope you'll be with us for a long time yet!

# Marie-Laure Chieppa, France # “It's hard to find the right words to express my gratitude for all the things you have done throughout the year. But please know that you are and always will be a very special person to me. I'm happy that the German-French friendship as it's currently practised in the political arena ("Merkozy") goes hand in hand with the way we deal with each other. Finally, thank you for providing one of the best Christmas gifts ever!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

On a side note, Sony Pictures Classics has acquired all North American and UK rights to Woody Allen's »Nero Fiddled« and is planning on a summer 2012 release with a possible debut at the Cannes Film Festival. This will mark their fifth collaboration after »Sweet and Lowdown«, »Whatever Works«, »You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger« and the year's highest-grossing indie film »Midnight in Paris«, which earned nearly $140 million dollars worldwide and recently received four Golden Globe nominations. Hit the jump to read the full press release.

Sony Pictures Classics LogoNEW YORK (December 21, 2011) – Sony Pictures Classics announced today that they have acquired all North American and UK rights to Woody Allen’s next film, NERO FIDDLED. The film stars Alec Baldwin, Roberto Benigni, Penelope Cruz, Jesse Eisenberg, Greta Gerwig and Ellen Page.

Produced by Letty Aronson, Steve Tenenbaum, Giampaulo Letta and Faruk Alatan, NERO FIDDLED, is a Medusa film and Gravier production. The film was Allen’s first film shot in Rome.

NERO FIDDLED marks Allen’s fifth film with Sony Pictures Classics. Allen’s most recent film with SPC, MIDNIGHT IN PARIS, has made almost $60 million at the box office and is Allen’s highest grossing film in North America. The film also recently garnered four Golden Globe nominations. SPC’s previous collaborations with Allen include YOU WILL MEET A TALL DARK STRANGER starring Anthony Hopkins, Naomi Watts, Josh Brolin and Frieda Pinto; the 2009 Tribeca Film Festival’s opening night film WHATEVER WORKS starring Larry David, Patricia Clarkson and Evan Rachel Wood; and SWEET AND LOWDOWN, which garnered Oscar nominations for Sean Penn and Samantha Morton.

“More laughs in this one than you can imagine. We know it’s a bit premature, but thank you Woody and company, for granting us the perfect summer comedy of 2012. Keep ‘em coming,” says Sony Pictures Classics.

Allen adds, “I’ve had a number of very good experiences working with Sony Classics, culminating most recently with MIDNIGHT IN PARIS. They seem to be very sensitive to the kind of films I make, and I’m looking forward to working with them now again.”

Toby Kebbell, Patricia Clarkson, Shiloh Fernandez and Aldis Hodge join »The East« / New features on EPO

Toby Kebbell, Patricia Clarkson, Shiloh Fernandez and Aldis Hodge

Since the last update, four more actors have joined the main cast of »The East«, including Toby Kebbell (»RocknRolla«), Patricia Clarkson (»Friends with Benefits«), Shiloh Fernandez (»Red Riding Hood«) and Aldis Hodge (»Leverage«). While Clarkson will play Sharon, the ruthless boss of the private security firm that Marling's character Sarah Moss is working for, the three guys are part of the mysterious, eponymous eco-activist group. Kebbell is set to star as a doctor simply called "Doc" with Parkinson’s-like symptoms caused by a tainted drug, with Hodge playing an "ex-military member of the townspeople who is affiliated with the group" and Fernandez as a "free-spirited and sexually adventurous member of Skarsgard’s eco-terrorism group".

In the meanwhile I was in the lucky position to read the August 2011 draft of the movie script. Without going out on a limb or giving too much away at this early stage, I think "Izzy" is tailor-made for Ellen and this role could be the opportunity to get finally rid of the ubiquitous »Juno« image.

Filming is currently underway in Shreveport, Louisiana and is scheduled to continue until mid-December. While other websites are tentatively anticipating a late 2012 release, I rather believe the premiere will be held at the 2013 Sundance since the film festival has been a good place for Brit Marling's »Another Earth« in the past.

Finally, here are two recent tweets from Aldis Hodge which give you an idea of what you can expect from the movie and its cast:

Over the last few days, I have completely revised the »Other Projects« page to make EPO an even better website. There you will find information about projects that Ellen was originally attached to (»Jack and Diane«, »Drag Me to Hell« and »Jane Eyre«), which never happened (»The Good Canary« play) or haven't been released (»Tilda«). In October I also modified the news and press archive scripts and added some new features. Instead of a general EPO string, the title bar of the browser now shows the subject of the current page. At the same time, the first sentences of the actual page content are included in the description meta tag. What looks like minor changes at first sight, has a huge influence on the way single pages are indexed by search engines and displayed in the search results. Just Google "Ellen Page Glenn Martin DDS" and you will see what I mean!

Ellen Page in final talks to join the eco-terrorism thriller »The East« / Ellen's guest appearance on »Ronna & Beverly«

Brit Marling, Alexander Skarsgard, Ellen Page and Zal Batmanglij

It looks like Ellen will team up with Fox Searchlight Pictures for the third time. According to Variety, she is in final negotiations to star opposite rising indie actress Brit Marling (»Another Earth«) and Swedish actor Alexander Skarsgård (»True Blood«) in the eco-terrorism thriller »The East«. Zal Batmanglij (»Sound of My Voice«) is directing from a screenplay he penned with Marling while Michael Costigan, Jocelyn Hayes Simpson as well as Marling are producing it.

The story centers on a private contracting firm tasked with protecting big corporations from anti-business extremists and radical environmentalists. It assigns its best and brightest agent (Marling) to infiltrate a mysterious anarchist organization known only as »The East«, which is led by Skarsgård's character. Ellen will play Izzy, a member of the group who used to be Skarsgård's former lover and becomes jealous of relationship between him and the new “recruit.”

Although I'm always happy when Ellen gets involved in a new interesting and challenging movie project, it should be mentioned, in all fairness, that she wasn’t the first choice. British actress Felicity Jones (»Cemetery Junction«) was originally going to take the role, but press commitments for the film »Like Crazy« forced her to drop out. On the other hand, Ellen's involvement could turn out to be very important since a few websites reported Fox Searchlight will only make it if they "land a huge star to anchor it." On a side note, if Ellen eventually gets the role, it will reunite her with two producers she's already worked with on »An American Crime« and »Smart People«.

Earlier reports indicated the project will begin production in early November, with shooting to take place in Shreveport, Louisiana. With that in mind, I could definitely see this premiering at the next TIFF or Sundance. Anyway, stay tuned for more information!

Update - 10/01/2011

Ronna & BeverlyOn August 17, Ellen expressed the desire to be on »Ronna & Beverly« (a raucous live chat show hosted by America’s favourite fifty-something Jewish mothers played by thirty-somethings Jessica Chaffin and Jamie Denbo) via Twitter. This finally came true at the Upright Citizens Brigade theatre in Los Angeles yesterday, when she made a guest appearance on the show alongside American actor Alan Tudyk (»Firefly«, »Tucker and Dale vs Evil«).

The good news is that the event was live broadcasted on the internet by Yowie.com. EPO won't be EPO if the German guy, who runs it and works his ass off every day of the week, didn't get up in the middle of the night to make a recording for all those who missed it, couldn't watch it or would like to see it again.

Besides responding to some rather rhetorical questions like "Where do you come from?" or "Can you explain Inception to me?", Ellen briefly talked about the recent film shooting for Woody Allen's »The Bop Decameron« in Rome, Italy as well as the above mentioned new project »The East«. Check out the exclusive video after the jump to find out what else she had to say and if she was able to keep pace with the two terrific babblers! Finally, a special thanks to my Canadian friend Jim for being my backup!

Filming of »The Bop Decameron« in Rome / Features of the »SUPER« DVD/Blu-ray / Kickstarter campaign for »Na Nai'A«

The production of Woody Allen's »The Bop Decameron« started as planned on July 11 in Rome, Italy. Ellen arrived in the country of pizza, pasta and amore on July 18 and was initially spotted on set towards the end of the week. Most scenes were shot outside at highly frequented locations including: Rome's longest and most popular beach Ostia, the Roma Termini train station, the daily farmer's market of Campo de' Fiori, the Spanish Steps, the Colosseum and the main shopping avenue Via del Corso. It was only a matter of time until the first paparazzi shots turned up on the Internet. I could easily add a hundred of them to the gallery, but I won't do it for the following reasons. It is and has always been the policy of this website to ignore and not repost such photos. Although filming outdoor scenes in Italy's capital is kind of a public event and you could argue these snaps help to promote interest in the film, I'm sure many, if not all photos, have been taken without the knowledge or permission of the actors or the director. The fact that none of them waved off the camera or made some other friendly gesture underlines this thesis. I'm not trying to be the moralist here, but I think it is about showing some respect for Ellen and the people she is working with. You surely don't want pictures of you to be taken while at work either, do you? Why not let the cast and crew do their thing and enjoy the final product in 2012.

While details concerning the story and characters are still sketchy, the following actors have been spotted on the set together and will very likely star in the same vignette:

»Click here to view / hide some potential spoilers«

However, this is all speculation like everything else right now. I'm sure we will get some information to answer the questions we have in mind in due time.

As reported in the previous post, »SUPER« will be released on DVD and Blu-ray tomorrow in the UK, and the week after in the USA (August 9, 2011). DVDActive revealed in a recent article the extra features will include a general making-of, an opening titles making-of, a college humor short, deleted scenes, a trailer and a TV spot. Furthermore, there will be a retailer exclusive Blu-ray edition with an extra DVD containing extended scenes, director and cast interviews, a comic con discussion, coverage of the SXSW première and a poster gallery. If you consider the posted cover art, it looks like Best Buy will offer this release. However, since this caused confusion, I tried to get in touch with director James Gunn for an official confirmation. As a response to my request on Facebook, he wrote that staff members of Best Buy interviewed him and the cast at last year's Comic Con and it's plausible they are going to sell an exclusive edition. Although the price difference between Amazon and Best Buy isn't significant, it's up to everyone to decide whether it's worth it to spend some extra money on bonus features or not. If you would like to learn more about the DVD/Blu-ray release, I suggest reading this article on homemediamagazine.com or watch the following interview by MovieWeb, which recently met up with director James Gunn at San Diego's Comic-Con 2011.

After the world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival in May 2010, it has been quiet around Johnathon Kay's »Na Nai'A legend of the dolphins«. Indeed, there wasn't much publicity, except actress Megan Fox (»Transformers«) receiving the Iris Award for her work on the documentary at the Maui Film Festival in June. But now Kay is back with a fundraising campaign on Kickstarter to arrange bigger screenings and more parties, make a 3D conversion and simply complete the film. The documentary celebrates the spectacular beauty of the dolphins, their message to humanity, their power, their wisdom, their fun-loving nature, and the importance of their global conservation. They might not be as important as the bees, but dolphins are without a doubt some of the most beautiful living creatures on earth. If you search the internet, you will find stories about heroic dolphins risking their own life to save other non-dolphin creatures, including humans.

Besides, dolphin therapy is a powerful method for the physical and emotional healing, where the dolphins play a key role in the treatment of multiple disorders. Just a few days ago I read in my local newspaper about a male teenager who was heavily abused by schoolmates. They kicked him several times, hurt his genitals and even burnt him with a cigarette. After this terrible incident, he wasn't the same anymore. He stopped speaking, stayed at home all the time and was afraid of all strangers he accidentally met. Since no psychologist was able to help him, a friend of the desperate mother suggested trying dolphin therapy. Fortunately, they raised enough money through donations and were finally able to go to Hawaii for a week, where the guy spent one hour a day with the dolphins. As unbelievable as it sounds, playing with the animals changed his life for the better. He started speaking again, was even able to talk about what exactly happened to him at the schoolyard and wiped the slate clean.

I don't implicitly support this method of treatment, but it is a great example of the special connection the dolphins have with the human race. They have always been one of my favourite animals among others like turtles, chameleons or bumblebees and I'm really proud that Ellen participated in this documentary. I strongly believe it will make people aware of this animal's beauty and teach them it is totally wrong to kill dolphins for no reason (see »The Cove«). We have to make sure these fantastic creatures don't go extinct. So if you have a few dollars to spare, please consider donating to Johnathon Kay's Kickstarter campaign. It won't be easy to reach fundraising goal of $100000, but together we can accomplish anything! Please spread the word and support this documentary in whatever way you can!
