Lots of film news today, check out the following update as well. First, some news from Cannes. The 2016 film festival gets underway today with a swarm of jet-lagged but hungry buyers, and plenty of product for them to evaluate, in every genre. Among them is the anticipated “What Happened to Monday?” which will be looking for a buyer for its theatrical distribution. Fingers crossed it’ll be picked up and released soon. Funnily, “Callas” is also selling at Cannes. If you remember, last year the project was announced at the festival with Noomi in the lead role to portray the famous opera singer. Unfortunately, it’s been the first and also last news on the project so far. So, at least it’s back at Cannes again :-) In other news, the Evening Standard has interviewed John Malkovich, who’s part of the killer-cast of “Unlocked”, which stars Noomi, Toni Collette and Michael Douglas. According to the article, the film is all but finished except that Malkovich has been asked to shoot some extra scenes, rather to his annoyance given his frantic schedule. This comes as a surprise since Noomi has filmed her scenes beginning in November 2014! With no release date in sight, this might take up to three years after its inital begin to finally see the light of day.
