Image
Another new interview of Carey Mulliganas she promotes her new film, The Greatest (which opens in theaters this Good Friday, April 2nd).

This time, the CM new interview is from Hollywood News.com...

Hollywood News recently spoke to Mulligan in Los Angeles at a press day for the film. In addition to speaking about the appeal of working on another modest project as she ventures tentatively into the world of big-budget filmmaking, she offered a few updates about some future projects, including Money Never Sleeps, the Kazuo Ishiguro adaptation Never Let Me Go, and My Fair Lady, a proposed remake of the acclaimed musical for which Mulligan is considered the perfect stand-in for her on-screen forebear, Audrey Hepburn.

Movie News: Rosamund Pike to star in Women In Love

Image
According to Baz Bamigboye of  UK's The Daily Mail, Rosamund Pikeis to star in a new version of the wildly erotic classic Women In Love, playing the same part that won Glenda Jackson her first Oscar 40 years ago.
In its day, Ken Russell's 1969 interpretation of D.H Lawrence's novel about sexual nature and grim industrial reality pushed the boundaries of sexual acts and nudity on screen.


Shooting on the new film, for BBC4, will begin in mid-April on locations in South Africa, standing in for a Midlands mining town. (Russell shot his movie in Derbyshire.)

The aim is to explore sexual relationships between men and women, and how World War I hurled a rural community into the harshness of 20th-century industrial reality.

The root of the project is sexual relations and animal passions involving two sisters - sculptress Gudrun Brangwen (the part Rosamund will play) and her sister Ursula, a timid teacher - and two men from opposite sides of the social divide, Rupert Birkin and Ge…

InStyle Video: New and old Rosamund Pike InStyle UK's Photo shoot

Image
I just found this very interesting and new (or rather old from last year, but new in a way that it's never-before-seen...or at least I've never seen it before till now...have you?) InStyle photo shoot video of Rosamund Pike. She was featured in the magazine too and this was when she was probably promoting An Education.Odd, that I missed this last year when I was posting a lot of news and articles about An Education, lol.

Rosamund Pike
The actress works this season's fierce tailoring on her InStyle fashion shoot. See her as you've never seen her before!

From InStyle UK website's main page...

Interesting...with Emma Thompson reportedly writing the screenplay and saying she is. 

Here's an article saying so, from...

Broadway World, via BBC Radio 5 Live:
Carey Mulligan is set to play Eliza Doolittle in the upcoming remake of My Fair Lady, written by Emma Thompson. Previous rumors suggested that Keira Knightley and Natalie Portman were interested in the coveted role of Doolittle, however Thompson revealed that Mulligan has been cast.

Though no one has been cast as male lead Henry Higgins, rumors have sugguested that Hugh Grant might be linked to the role. On this subject Thompson stated, “But we still don’t know about Higgins. I love Hugh so I’d love him to do it, he might want to, he…

Amazing Grace: The movie icon look for 2010

 From a major V&A exhibition to the look of Mad Men's leading ladies, Grace Kelly is everywhere this spring.

Actor Rosamund Pike pulls on her white gloves and travels to Monaco to recreate her timeless style
 Half a century later, there is something of the Kelly lineage in Rosamund Pike, the young actor with the cool-drink-of-water good looks who gamely agreed to model this season's take on the Grace Kelly look in Monaco for us. Pike wrote in Vogue last year about the experience of playing the adorable, childlike, Monroe-esque character of Helen in An Education – a comic role she played to delicious perfection – and how differently cast and crew related to her, compared with her experiences playing more arch, aloof blondes. &…
