Quote from Gwendoline about Star Wars ‘Snipers’

‘STAR WARS’ ACTORS KEEP MUM IN VENICE

The first rule of Venice is, you don’t talk about “Star Wars.”

Cast members of the forthcoming “Episode VII” who are in the Italian city for the Venice Film Festival are keeping mum about details of the ultra-anticipated movie.

 

British actress Gwendoline Christie, who plays Brienne of Tarth in “Game of Thrones” and Commander Lyme in two “Hunger Games” movies, joked at a Vanity Fair-sponsored party that “Star Wars” producers had gone to extraordinary lengths to maintain secrecy.

“There’s snipers trained on us right now,” she said at an event to celebrate a collaboration between celebrity photographer Rankin and Johnnie Walker whiskey aimed at capturing rising entertainment stars.

‘Game of Thrones,’ ‘2 Broke Girls,’ ‘Silicon Valley’ Stars Converge at ‘Unscreened Summer Series’

Premiere Of HBO's "Game Of Thrones" Season 3 - After Party

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Gwendoline Christie, Beth Behrs and Thomas Middleditch are among the actors participating

 

“Game of Thrones” star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau is among the writers who will participate in a special summer iteration of Haven Entertainment and Firefly Theater & Films’s popular “Unscreened” series, TheWrap has learned.

 

The “Unscreened Summer Series” will feature staged readings of five new plays that will feature cast members such as Coster-Waldau and his “Game of Thrones” co-star Gwendoline Christie, who is currently filming “Star Wars: Episode VII,” plus major TV stars Beth Behrs (“2 Broke Girls”) and Thomas Middleditch (“Silicon Valley”), as well as Leighton Meester (“Gossip Girl”), Michael Stahl-David (“Cloverfield”), Adelaide Clemens and Eliza Coupe.

 

The inaugural class of writers for the “Unscreened Summer Series” are Coster-Waldau & JP Derrick, Harris Danow (“The Newsroom”), Celine Geiger (“The Lying Game”), Justin Sternberg (“The Paul Reiser Show”) and Jordan & Justin Shipley.

 

Directors include Danow, Logan Kibens and “Unscreened” alums Daria Polatin (“Weeds”), Will Greenberg (“Halt and Catch Fire”), and Susanna Fogel (“Life Partners”).

 

“Unscreened” was created by Haven Entertainment’s Jordana Mollick and Firefly Theater & Films’s Steven Klein in order to give film and TV writers the chance to see their visions fully realized at a pace and depth of collaboration that only theater can accommodate and to work closely with the type of established actors that the writers and directors are regularly meeting via their day jobs.

 

“The Summer Reading Series is an exciting way to expand the community of talented writers, directors, and actors that Unscreened has built over the years, while continuing to harness collaborations with our alumni,” Mollick and Klein said in a joint statement.

 

The “Unscreened Summer Series” will take place on the weekend of Sept. 5-7 at 8 p.m. at the Lillian Theater in Hollywood. Tickets are available online here www.unscreenedla.com or by calling Brown Paper Tickets at (800) 838-3006.

 

Several of the short plays created for ”Unscreened” in 2011, 2012, and 2013 have led to further projects, most notably – ”Life Partners” by Susanna Fogel and Joni Lefkowitz, which was adapted into a feature film starring Meester, Gillian Jacobs, and Adam Brody. The movie premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival in April and will be released this fall by Magnolia Pictures; “T*TS” by Leslye Headland, which is being workshopped by Second Stage into a full-length play; Beth Schacter’s ”Turned Out,” which is being developed into a feature; and Corinne Kingsbury’s play “His Girl,” which is now being developed with Anonymous Content and “Unscreened” into a cable TV show.

 

Haven’s partners are Mauricio Betancur, Kevin Mann, Rachel Miller and Jesse Hara. “Unscreened” co-founder Jordana Mollick and Brendan Bragg, formerly of Black Sheep Entertainment, joined the company as partners in 2013. Haven recently produced the EDM documentary “Under the Electric Sky,” which Focus released this summer after acquiring the film at Sundance earlier this year.

Did Gwendoline Take Over Benedict Cumberbatch’s Star Wars Episode VII Role?

The Game of Throne actress has been speaking out on the big screen part

 

Forget the return of Harrison Ford or Adam Driver’s rumoured villain, the casting for Star Wars: Episode VII we’re most excited for is Gwendoline Christie. With no official word yet on exactly who the Game of Thrones favourite will be playing, some very interesting new rumours have been doing the rounds.

Plot leaks for JJ Abrams’ hugely secretive movie have been coming thick and fast over the past couple of weeks. Badass Digest recently claimed Brit up and comers John Boyega and Daisy Ridley are playing the leads in the new chapter, with the pair on a quest to find Mark Hamill’s Luke Skywalker, who has been MIA since the events of Return of the Jedi.

 

A fresh rumour from the site though puts Gwendoline as an Imperial officer or even a Sith, trying to hunt down Boyega’s Stormtrooper after he sets off on his mission.

 

The fact that Gwendoline has allegedly been spotted training with a lightsaber points to a possible Sith role (those sword-fighting skills on GoT should come in handy if this is the case).

 

Even more interestingly though, the site claims Christie’s part is thought to have been gender swapped during re-drafts of the script, with none other than Benedict Cumberbatch originally linked to the part.

 

Benedict shot down rumours he’s teaming up with his Star Trek: Into Darkness director Abrams again for Star Wars at Oz Comic Con back in April.

 

According to the entertainment site The Iris, which was live-tweeting from the event, Benedict told the audience “I would’ve liked a part in JJ’s [Abrams] new Star Wars but it won’t happen sadly.”

 

While this is all a lot of speculation, Gwendoline did tease her big screen adventure at Comic Con over the weekend, telling fans that she feels “incredibly lucky” to land the role.

 

“That was a real, real dream come true,” she told Access Hollywood. “That was like nothing you ever imagined. It’s so burnt into our minds. It’s burnt into my mind. I was shown those movies when I was a tiny little girl and then, to be a part of that thing that you held in such high regard, that’s been your escapism and your love and your entertainment and it’s been not just yours but everyone around you, I’m incredibly lucky. And it’s a lot of fun.”

 

While we don’t know for sure yet who Gwen will be playing, she teased that her character won’t stray too far from the action woman style of her GoT role: “Brienne of Tarth may well continue to kick ass,” she revealed.
