Press: Toronto: A24 Nabs Dress Horror Pic ‘In Fabric’

HOLLYWOOD REPORTERPeter Strickland’s film debuted as part of the Midnight Madness program at TIFF.

A24 has acquired the North American rights to In Fabric, writer and director Peter Strickland’s horror film about a woman who buys a cursed gown from a strangely sinister department store outside of London.

A 2019 domestic release is planned. In Fabric had a world premiere as part of the Midnight Madness sidebar at the Toronto Film Festival, and is set to make its U.S. bow on Thursday at the Fantastic Fest.

The film’s ensemble cast includes Marianne Jean-Baptiste, Hayley Squires, Leo Bill, Julian Barrett, Steve Oram and Gwendoline Christie. In Fabric tells the story of a lonely woman, played by Jean-Baptiste who visits a London department store in search of a dress that will transform her life.

She’s fitted with a perfect, dark red gown that unleashes a malevolent curse and unstoppable evil, threatening everyone that comes into its path.

“I’m very excited to have In Fabric distributed by A24. I love the films they’ve put out and their fearless approach to successfully finding an audience. In Fabric is in safe and loving hands with A24,” Strickland said Tuesday in a statement.

Bankside Films negotiated the deal on behalf of the filmmakers. In Fabric is produced by Andy Starke, who also worked with Strickland on The Duke of Burgundy, and is executive produced by Rose Garnett, Lizzie Francke, Phil Hunt, Compton Ross, Stephen Kelliher, Hilary Davis, Andrew Boswell, Ben Wheatley, and Ian Benson.

The film was financed by BFI Film Fund, BBC Films, Head Gear Films, Metrol Technology and Twickenham Studios. Peter Strickland is represented by Ian Benson at The Agency and David Kopple at CAA.

Game of Thrones Premiere Date Announced!

Your wait now has an endpoint: HBO just announced the premiere date for Game of Thrones season 5.

 

The launch date is not a big surprise as Thrones always tends to return around the same time each year. But now it’s official: Thrones will unveil its fifth season on Sunday, April 12. HBO will also launch the fourth season of Veep and the second season of Silicon Valley on the same date.

 

Thrones fans have seen practically nothing from the new season so far and over the next few months there are several key assets yet to be revealed. HBO has yet to release photos from the new season or a trailer of the eagerly awaited new season. There have been a couple teasers, a few seconds each, largely consisting of old footage.

 

The premiere date comes on the heels of HBO’s surprise announcement that Thrones will get a limited IMAX roll-out later this month. The big-screen presentation of HBO’s most successful series of all time begins Jan. 23 will include the final two episodes of season 4 and an exclusive trailer for the upcoming season. According to IMAX, this will mark the first time a TV series has been showcased in the format.

HBO also announced Thursday that Bill Maher’s Real Time talk-show has been renewed for a 14th and 15th season, and that comedian Tig Notaro (Transparent) has landed her first stand-up comedy special.

‘Star Wars: Episode VII’ has a title: ‘The Force Awakens’

star-wars-force-awakens_612x380

If you feel a disturbance in the Force, it’s millions of voices suddenly crying out the new title of Star Wars: Episode VII — The Force Awakens.

 

The reveal comes as the movie finishes its final day of shooting (with many more months of post-production to come.)

 

Although there were still a few days left of shooting, the cast of the J.J. Abrams film already celebrated their wrap party last weekend, following a bumpy few months of principal photography thrown into crisis when Han Solo himself, Harrison Ford, broke his leg on set in an accident involving a falling door on the Millennium Falcon.

 

It was also plagued by spoiler leaks — or was it? The flow of rumors and apparent concept images has been non-stop, but how much of it is accurate remains an open question.

 

The film, which picks up three decades after the events of Return of the Jedi, is headlined by original trilogy stars Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Kenny Baker (R2-D2), Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca), and Anthony Daniels (C-3PO), with new additions including Lupita Nyong’o (the best supporting actress Oscar-winner from 12 Years a Slave) and Gwendoline Christie, the 6-foot-3 British actress best known as the female knight Brienne of Tarth from Game of Thrones.

 

Other new additions include Adam Driver (Girls), Oscar Isaac (Inside Llewyn Davis), John Boyega (Attack the Block), newcomer Daisy Ridley, performance-capture maestro Andy Serkis (Rise of the Planet of the Apes), Domhnall Gleeson (About Time), and the imperious Max von Sydow from The Exorcist.

 

Episode VII, er … The Force Awakens, produced by Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy and veteran Abrams collaborator Bryan Burke, is set for release Dec. 18, 2015.
