COMING SOON – ComingSoon.net has your first look at an exclusive clip from Fox Searchlight‘s upcoming drama My Cousin Rachel, starring Oscar winner Rachel Weisz (The Constant Gardener, The Lobster, The Light Between Oceans). Check out the My Cousin Rachel clip in the player below!
A dark and layered romance, My Cousin Rachel tells the story of a young Englishman who plots revenge against his mysterious and beautiful cousin, believing that she murdered his guardian. His feelings become complicated as he finds himself falling helplessly and obsessively in love with her.
Weisz is joined in the film by Sam Claflin (Me Before You, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Parts 1 and 2), Holliday Grainger (Cinderella, The Borgias), Iain Glen (Game of Thrones, Resident Evil: The Final Chapter), and Pierfrancesco Favino (Marco Polo, Night at the Museum).
Based on the novel by Daphne Du Maurier novel, the film is directed and written by Roger Michell (Hyde Park on Hudson, Notting Hill, Morning Glory). The film opens in theaters on June 9, 2017.
VARIETY – “Me Before You” and “Hunger Games” star Sam Claflin is in negotiations to join Shailene Woodley in STX Entertaiment’s survival drama “Adrift,” sources tell Variety.
Miles Teller was initially in talks to reunite with his “Divergent” and “Spectacular Now” co-star in the movie, but passed on the project due to scheduling conflicts.
“Adrift” is written and produced by Aaron and Jordan Kandell. Baltasar Kormákur will direct and produce the film under his RVK Studios banner, with production set to begin in June.
Woodley signed on to star in “Adrift” during the Berlin Film Festival, where STX began selling rights.
“Adrift” is based on the true story of Tami Oldham, who, after being knocked unconscious by the largest hurricane in the history of the Pacific Ocean, awakens to find her fiancé Richard Sharp badly injured, their boat in ruins, and no means of communication or navigation. She must race against the clock to save herself and the only man she’s ever loved.
Claflin recently wrapped production on the Jennifer Kent thriller “Nightingale” for Bron Studios, and can be seen next in Fox Searchlight’s “My Cousin Rachel.” He is repped by CAA and Independent Talent Group.
The release of My Cousin Rachel is getting closer! I have added new promotional photos, production stills, and a behind the scenes photo to the gallery. Thank you to my friend Kaci at Jimmi Simpson Fan for help with some photos!
A few new production stills for Sam’s upcoming film My Cousin Rachel have been released. Check them out in the gallery!
DEADLINE – Sam Claflin is set to star in upcoming crime thriller Semper Fi, directed by Murderball’s Henry-Alex Rubin. David Lancaster (Whiplash, Nightcrawler) of Rumble Films and Karina Miller (To the Bone) from Sparkhouse Media are producing, with Sparkhouse also financing.
Cornerstone Films is handling international sales rights for the title, and co-repping U.S. rights with CAA, which packaged and financed the film. Project will be launched to buyers at the Cannes Film Festival this month.
Claflin, who has starred in projects such as Me Before You, Their Finest and The Hunger Games, will play Hopper, a straight-laced cop who fills his downtime as a Sergeant in the Marine Corps Reservists alongside a close-knit team of life-long friends – Jaeger, Daddy and Snowball. A rowdy but inseparable bunch of guys, they look out for each other no matter what, including keeping an eye out for Hopper’s younger, reckless brother Oyster.
When Oyster accidentally kills a man in a bar-room brawl and tries to flee town, Hopper stops him and forces him to face the music, resulting in him ending up in prison. But, after being deployed to Iraq, Hopper feels wracked with guilt when he returns home and he and his friends hatch a plan to break Oyster out of jail.
“I couldn’t be more excited about Semper Fi,” Miller said. “At its core, it’s about what it means to truly stand by the people you love. It’s thrilling and entertaining but also emotional.”
Claflin and Rubin are repped by CAA; Claflin is also repped by Independent Talent Group in the UK.
