Actress Olivia Wilde is shooting a documentary about women living and working in Kenya’s most impoverished areas.
The Tron: Legacy star has interviewed female entrepreneurs and toured the Kibera School for Girls in the run-down slums of Nairobi for TV documentary Half the Sky, which she is shooting with writer Nicholas D. Kristof.
The actress also met with women working at the Jamii Bora organisation, which seeks to eliminate poverty through microfinancing, and admits she was inspired by the visit.
In a post on her Twitter.com page, she writes, “Spent the day in Kibera slum in Nairobi, Kenya, with the strong women of the Jamii Bora micro financing org. My mind is officially blown.”
Actresses Diane Lane, America Ferrera and Nicole Kidman are also filming installments for the Half the Sky documentary.
Another small update now, but a good one! I’ve added a few new photoshoot pictures, from Nic’s 2009 Ladies Home Journal shoot, and the photoshoot used to promote the Village Shopping Mall in Rio de Janeiro last year. The last 2 Ladies Home Journal pics are so pretty, and the Village Shopping Mall additions have some fun shots, plus some very stunning ones in which Nic shows off her enviable legs!
Just a quick note – if you’re going to re-post these on Tumblr, which we know you do – please, please give us a credit link back! It’d make us very happy
Scott Free Productions, Fox Searchlight Pictures and Indian Paintbrush announced today that principal photography for the psychological thriller STOKER has begun in Nashville, Tennessee. The film stars Mia Wasikowska, Matthew Goode and Oscar ® winner Nicole Kidman with Dermot Mulroney and Oscar® nominee Jacki Weaver.
In his first English language film, celebrated Korean director Park Chan-wook (OLDBOY, THIRST) will direct from an original screenplay by the former PRISON BREAK star Wentworth Miller, who wrote his inaugural script under the pseudonym Ted Foulke. STOKER is being produced by Scott Free Productions’ Tony Scott, Ridley Scott and Michael Costigan with Steven Rales and Mark Roybal of Indian Paintbrush serving as executive producers. Indian Paintbrush is co-financing the film with Fox Searchlight Pictures who will be releasing the film worldwide.
After India’s (Wasikowska’s) father dies in an auto accident, her Uncle Charlie (Goode), who she never knew existed, comes to live with her and her emotionally unstable mother (Kidman). Soon after his arrival, she comes to suspect this mysterious, charming man has ulterior motives, but instead of feeling outrage or horror, this friendless girl becomes increasingly infatuated with him.
As posted about before, Trespass will be premiering at the Toronto Film Festival next month, and we now have exact dates! The TIFF website has also added film details and a mini-review/preview.
Trespass will receive it’s world premiere on Wednesday September 14th at the Roy Thomson Hall at 9:30pm. This will be the red carpet event, which we hope Nicole will be able to attend. The film will also receive a screening the day after, at the Visa Screening Room (Elgin) at 2:30pm.
A seemingly straightforward home invasion evolves into something far more complicated in Joel Schumacher’s terse thriller that reunites the director with past collaborators Nicholas Cage and Nicole Kidman. Full of double-crosses, explosive violence and riveting performances, Trespass doesn’t waste any time penetrating boundaries or getting under our skin.
Trespass gets right down to the business of violating boundaries. It opens with Kyle (Nicolas Cage) steering his luxury convertible through the Louisiana woods, nearly home yet still working, making desperate calls to real-estate clients unresponsive to his hard sells. Kyle arrives at his isolated, museum-like mansion to find his wife Sarah (Nicole Kidman) arguing with their adolescent daughter Avery (Liana Liberato). Avery locks herself in her room; Kyle keeps taking business calls; Sarah just wants a nice family dinner. So domestic tensions are already peaking when unexpected visitors arrive, wearing masks, making demands and packing heat.
Nic was busy at work on the set of The Paperboy again last week, and looking just as amazing doing it as she was earlier this month. She seemed to spend most of the scene on August 26th in the back of a car, so we can only see the back of her head in them, with Zac Efron looking all beat up standing beside it! I can’t wait for this movie, it sounds like it’s going to be very intense!
You can see a shot of one of the locations they’re filming at here.
There has been an increasing amount of news relating to Trespass in the last few weeks! About a month ago the ‘first poster’ for the film was produced, with the release date stated on it as October 14th. There was speculation whether this was an official poster and date, as, to put it bluntly, questions were raised about the photoshopping in the poster. It was also rumoured the film would be going straight to DVD.
However, since then, lots of ‘official’ news has turned up!
- The film will be released in US cinemas and ‘video-on-demand’ on October 14th. It will follow on DVD on November 1st.
- The poster was indeed official.
- Trespass will premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in September, as posted about here a few days ago.
- A few early reviews have been posted about the film, presumably from people having seen a preview screening of it.
David Hare’s British spy film “Page Eight” will serve as closing-night film of the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival, which also announced a new slate of galas and special presentations on Tuesday, including the Winnie Mandela biopic “Winnie,” Marc Forster’s “Machine Gun Preacher” and Joel Schumacher’s home-invasion drama “Trespass,” with Nicole Kidman and Nicolas Cage.
The new galas and special presentations added more than two dozen notable films to a TIFF lineup that was already notably strong and deep, while the festival also announced several dozen more additions to its more adventurous sidebars.
TIFF special presentations will include Whit Stillman’s “Damsels in Distress,” Andrea Arnold’s “Wuthering Heights,” Gianni Amelio’s Camus adaptation “The First Man,” Agnieszka Holland’s “In Darkness,” Julia Leigh’s controversial Cannes entry “Sleeping Beauty,” and “Violet & Daisy,” the directorial debut from “Precious” screenwriter Geoffrey Fletcher.
The festival also announced a number of additions to other programs:
