The 2016 Black List was announced earlier this week and Domhnall was among the people who announced one of the scripts through social media videos. You can see the video for yourself below.
Stars such as Peter Dinklage, David Benioff, Armie Hammer, Eva Longoria, and Domhnall Gleeson began announcing the selected scripts through social media videos on Monday at 9 a.m. Josh Singer, who won an Oscar for the “Spotlight” screenplay, made one of the announcements as did Writers Guild of America West President Howard Rodman. The entire list is on the Black List web site.
Domhnall attended the 2016 The Fashion Awards held at the Royal Albert Hall in London earlier this week. We have added the high quality images in our gallery.
We have added recent Domhnall attended last month in our gallery. We apologize for the delay on these. Domhnall stopped by the Burberry Celebrate ‘The Tale of Thomas Burberry’ and ATP World Finals.
Deadline reported earlier that Domhnall joined the CGI/Live action adaption of ‘Peter Rabbit’.
The hardworking Irish actor Domhnall Gleeson has been set to play menacing farmer Mr. McGregor in Peter Rabbit, Sony’s live action/CGI adaptation of Beatrix Potter’s 150-year-old children’s book.
Pic will be directed by Will Gluck, and Gleeson joins Rose Byrne in the other live-action role, while James Corden voices Peter, and Daisy Ridley and Elizabeth Debicki also provide voices. Production starts at Australia’s animated VFX studio Animal Logic in January with an eye at a April 2018 release date.
The Sydney-based studio was behind the animation in The LEGO Movie. Columbia Pictures has partnered with Peter Rabbit‘s publisher Frederick Warne & Co., part of Penguin Random House UK, for the movie, and is planning a huge worldwide licensing and merchandising campaign. Doug Belgrad exec produces through his 2.0 Entertainment banner, with Gluck producing through his Olive Bridge Entertainment with Animal Logic’s Zareh Nalbandian. Jason Lust and Olive Bridge’s Jodi Hildebrand are also exec veeps. Rob Lieber wrote the script with revisions by Gluck.
Gleeson, who last year starred in an enviable quartet of films — Ex Machina, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, The Revenant and Brooklyn — adds Peter Rabbit to several upcoming films that include the untitled Darren Aronofsky project, playing the title character in the untitled A.A. Milne drama that Simon Curtis is directing, and reprising in Star Wars: Episode VIII. He’s repped by Paradigm and Dublin-based The Agency.
Fox Searchlight released the first official stills of the Untitled A.A. Milne Project earlier this week via USA Today. We have added the stills in our gallery. The movie is expected to be released in 2017.
Domhnall Gleeson is trading the evil of General Hux for the kid-friendly charm of Winnie-the-Pooh.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens star Gleeson plays British children’s author A.A. Milne in an upcoming biopic based on the life of the beloved teddy bear’s creator. USA TODAY has the first look at stills from the as yet untitled Fox Searchlight movie — which started filming in England two weeks ago — featuring Gleeson, Margot Robbie (who veers far from Harley Quinn as wife Daphne Milne) and newcomer Will Tilston (as little Christopher Robin).
With the working title of The Untitled A.A. Milne Project — though, honestly, we dug the original Goodbye Christopher Robin handle — the movie centers on the father/son relationship between Milne and Christopher Robin, whose stuffed toys inspired Milne to create the magical world of Pooh Bear, Piglet, Eeyore, Tigger and the rest of the gang that inhabited the books Winnie-the-Pooh in 1926 and The House at Pooh Corner two years later. The tomes took England by storm following World War I, but also overshadowed all of Milne’s previous works and put an international spotlight on the family and their nanny Olive (Kelly Macdonald).
It was reported earlier this year that Domhnall’s upcoming movie “Mena” has been retitled to “American Made“. The movie also got a new release date, on September 29, 2017. THR is reporting the following story:
Universal is pushing back the release of Tom Cruise-starrer Mena from Jan. 6, 2017 to Sept. 29, 2017.
The movie, directed by Doug Liman, is also getting a new title: American Made. The project reunites Liman and Cruise after making 2014’s Edge of Tomorrow together.
American Made stars Cruise as real-life American pilot and hustler Barry Seal, who ran drugs in the 1980s for cocaine kingpin Pablo Escobar and was recruited by the CIA to run one of the biggest covert operations in history. (Cruise himself is a trained pilot.)
The film is financed by Cross Creek Pictures, with Universal handling distribution and marketing duties.
Universal insiders say the fall corridor, which is primetime for adult dramas, is a better fit for American Made.
Another (possible) project for Domhnall: The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Domhnall is in talks to join the cast of Darren Aronofsky’s Untitled project.
Michelle Pfeiffer and Domhnall Gleeson are in negotiations to join Jennifer Lawrence and Javier Bardem in Darren Aronofsky’s untitled Paramount Pictures drama.
Also in discussions to join the roll call are veteran actor Ed Harris and Gleeson’s brother, Brian Gleeson.
Aronofsky wrote the script, which focuses on a couple whose relationship is tested when uninvited guests come to their home, disrupting their lives.
Character details were not revealed.
A June production start is being penciled for a release in 2017.
Aronofsky and his partners at Protozoa Pictures, Scott Franklin and Ari Handel are producing.
Pfeiffer’s last screen appearance was with Robert De Niro in Luc Besson’s crime thriller The Family. She has two projects in the cast, the HBO Bernie Madoff movie The Wizard of Lies and the indie drama Beat-Up Little Seagull. She is repped by CAA, Management 360 and Hirsch Wallerstein.
Paradigm-repped Gleeson, who last year starred in Ex Machina and played a villain in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, is joining Will Forte in A Futile and Stupid Gesture, Netflix’s movie about the founding of National Lampoon.
Deadline is reporting that Domhnall is in talks for “Goodbye Christopher Robin“.
Domhnall Gleeson, seared into the consciences of children worldwide for his turn as the villainous General Hux in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, could be about to play a more family friendly figure in Winnie the Pooh creator AA Milne. Gleeson is in talks to board Simon Curtis’ Goodbye Christopher Robin, which charts the relationship between Milne and his son, which led to the creation of everyone’s favourite honey-loving bear Winnie the Pooh. Pooh was named after Milne’s son Robin’s teddy bear. Robin, who initially had a difficult relationship with his father, also served as the inspiration for the character Christopher Robin. The real Robin’s toys also lent their names to other Winnie the Pooh characters such as Tigger, Eyeore and Piglet.
Prolific Brit producer Damian Jones is producing along with former Pinewood Pictures head Steve Christian. Pathe developed the project, which will go through Jones’ first-look production pact with Fox Searchlight, news of which Deadline broke a few weeks ago. This is shaping up nicely for Jones, who has been on a roll of late with local hits Dad’s Army and The Lady in the Van as well as the feature adaptation of classic comedy Brit TV series Absolutely Fabulous, which Fox Searchlight will distribute and co-finance with BBC Films.
