Movie Casting News: Judi Dench joins 'My Week with Marilyn' and 'Marigold Hotel'

Image
Judi Dench has two new movies she reportedly signed on, My Week with Marilyn and The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.

Collider.com has the following info for both of these new films...
Judi Dench has signed on to star opposite Michelle Williams and Kenneth Branagh in My Week With Marilyn, one of two Marilyn Monroe biopics in development.  This one takes place on the contentious set of 1957’s The Prince and the Showgirl, in which Monroe (Williams) sought respectability by working with lauded actor/director Laurence Olivier (Branagh); unfortunately Olivier came to loathe the blonde bombshell and treat her like “a naughty schoolgirl.” Dench will play fellow dame Sybil Thorndike, one of the stars of Prince.

According to The Daily Mail, Dench will start shooting her scenes on September 20th, two weeks prior to the primary filming schedule.  The accommodation resulted from Dench’s commitment to James Madden’s adaptation ofThe Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. Read more here...Speaking of Judi D…

Pride & Prejudice References in Pop Culture (Part 3)

Image
[Updated 1/29/14: Replaced previous blurry screen caps with better quality ones, fixed dialogue and more...]

I have previously mentioned the Emma Roberts' teen flick, Wild Childin thePride & Prejudice References in Pop Culture (Part 2) as one of the movies that referenced P&P movie,but I've never seen the movie until now when ABC Family recently premiered it last Sunday. I had DVR'd it, since I didn't get to see it when it aired. Just saw this movie this past Thursday and now I know which parts/scenes from the movie it references P&P movie and mentionsKeira Knightley. I thought it was pretty cool and had to laughed at those two brief  scenes (including one of the characters sketching one of Keira's Elizabeth Bennet's costumes/dresses and showed pictures of KK as EB from the P&P movie...see screen cap collage I made of it on top, to your left or below), as they were funny, lol. I wish I have the clips to show you and share here, but unfortunatel…

Looks like Aisha, a new Bollywood version of Jane Austen's classic Emma is not only showing in theaters in India, but it is also showing worldwide today (August 6th)! Check out Aisha's Theater listing here to see if it's showing anywhere near your city or country!

Hmm, it's not showing in my city/state (Florida). I would love to see Aisha as I love Bollywood movies (even though I'm not Indian nor do I speak Hindi, but with English subtitles, beautiful and colorful costumes,  energetic music, and singing and dancing...they are so fun to watch!) and this one, also, is a Jane Austenmovies related (I've seen Bollywood versions of JA's P&P and S&S both starring Aishwarya Rai and I loved and enjoyed watching them esp. B&P!) Unfortunately, I probably won't see this movie (unless they add one here in my city...) until the DVD is released here in the U.S., which won't be for a while, much like Bride & Prejudice back in 2004, when it was showi…

Thompson and Wise have one child, Gaia, born in 1999. Interesting...I didn't know that...till now! Who knew S&S' Elinor Dashwood and Willoughby would be a couple?! Well, not really the fictional characters per say, but the actors who played them...lol. Much like P&P's own Keira and Rupert Friend) She has a P&P movie connection too. She did an uncredited and unpaid …
