Holliday Grainger to star in ‘Animals’

Great Expectations star Holliday Grainger, recently on screens in Cinderella and The Finest Hours, is attached to star in Animals, which marks Australian director Sophie Hyde’s first film following Sundance and Berlin winner 52 Tuesdays in 2014.

The film is an adaptation of Emma Jane Unsworth’s well-received novel, which was featured by Lena Dunham as one of her favourite books of 2015 on Lenny Letter, and described by Caitlin Moran as “Withnail with girls”. The book also won the Jerwood Fiction Uncovered Prize.

Emma Jane Unsworth has written the screenplay for the Manchester-set comedy about two female friends whose hedonistic friendship is tested when one gets engaged to an ambitious teetotal pianist.

Producer is Screen Star Of Tomorrow Sarah Brocklehurst, who was BAFTA-nominated for her debut feature Black Pond, through production company Sarah Brocklehurst Productions.

The film has been developed by Creative England through the BFI Net.Work. Production is anticipated to begin this winter in Manchester UK, with further casting underway.

Hyde said: “Animals is such a fierce, hilarious and loving book. It’s so refreshing to see women presented in all their messy glory; as smart, witty and conflicted humans with friendships and desires that are at once funny and provocative because they feel so real.

“I’m delighted to find this kind of material and so thrilled to be collaborating with the compelling Holliday Grainger who I believe will seriously impress with this fearless and fun leading role.”

Brocklehurst commented: “Animals is a furiously funny and filthy story about the choices that young women make: who their allies are, which female ‘role’ they will choose to play, and how they will manage their own bodies and behaviour against social scrutiny.”

‘Tulip Fever’ Gets a Release Date

Directed by Justin Chadwick, the long-gestating period drama also stars Dean DeHaan and Christoph Waltz.
Tulip Fever is finally blooming.

The period drama — starring Oscar winner Alicia Vikander opposite Dean DeHaan and Christoph Waltz {and Holliday Grainger} — will open in select theaters July 15, The Weinstein Co. announced Tuesday.

A passion project for British producer Alison Owen, Tulip Fever is based on Deborah Moggach’s novel about an artist (DeHaan) who falls in love with a married woman (Vikander) after he’s commissioned by the husband (Waltz) to paint her portrait. Justin Chadwick directed from an adapted script by Tom Stoppard.

The film is set in Netherlands in the early 17th century, during the period known as Tulip Mania, when single bulbs would sell for enormous sums. In Tulip Fever, the two young lovers decide to invest in the risky tulip market in order to build a future together.

Harvey Weinstein has become a huge proponent of opening specialty films year-round, versus crowding them into the fall corridor (the heart of award season).

Tulip Fever, shot in 2014, has been finished for a year but only now has a release date.

Max Irons and Holliday Grainger join the cast of ‘Sanditon’

Holliday Grainger (Cinderella) and Max Irons (Woman In Gold) are to join Charlotte Rampling (45 Years) in Jane Austen adaptation Sanditon, which is due to shoot in the UK in June.

The adaptation of Jane Austen’s never-before dramatised final novel will be directed by Jim O’Hanlon (A Hundred Streets), director of the 2009 BBC TV adaptation of Austen’s Emma.

Script comes from British playwright Simon Reade who produces with Guy de Beaujeu for Fluidity Films (Private Peaceful). Goldcrest Films will finance and handle sales.

In Sanditon, when Charlotte Heywood (Holliday Grainger) is invited by eternal optimist and entrepreneur Tom Parker to spend the summer season at Sanditon she accepts immediately, intrigued to see (not so) polite society at play in the newly fashionable sea bathing resort. There she meets a host of classic Austen characters from the imperious nouveau-riche Lady Denham (Rampling) to her impoverished ward Clara, and from the lecherous Sir Edward, to the dashing, feckless Sidney Parker (Max Irons) and his hypochondriac sisters.

Director Jim O’Hanlon said: “Sanditon is that rare and wonderful thing – a genuinely original, never-before-filmed novel by one of the world’s favourite novelists. It has everything audiences have come to expect from classic Jane Austen – comedy, romance, and a dazzling cast of characters for them to fall in love with – and much that is fresh and new, not least its setting in an English Seaside resort on the make.

“This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to bring to the big screen a brand-new Jane Austen – Jane Austen-On-Sea, as it were – and to be doing it with actors of the calibre of Holliday, Max and of course Charlotte Rampling as Lady Denham is hugely exciting. I can’t wait to get started”.

Pascal Degove, managing director of Goldcrest Films, added: “This is a highly contemporary, relevant first telling of a Jane Austen with all the makings of a classic. There really couldn’t be a better way to underline this than with the casting of Holliday and Max who will appeal to Austen fans, old and new.”
