TV LINE – Question: If Maleficent is heading back to Once Upon a Time, does that mean we’ll see Aurora and Prince Phillip too? —B.D.
Ausiello: Oh, you’ll see Sleeping Beauty well before Maleficent’s midseason encore. When we recently chatted up Sarah Bolger, she was already heading back to shoot her second episode of the season, but we’ll first see Aurora in Episode 7, now “out of her princess gear” in Storybrooke. As for Phillip, Julian Morris is currently busy with New Girl, to be followed by Amazon’s Hand of God, but Bolger trusts, “I’m sure he will be [back],” in some capacity.
Yesterday Sarah attended the premiere for Once Upon A Time in Hollywood. I have add 71 high quality images from the event and after party to the gallery
HOLLYWOOD REPORTER – Gerard Depardieu is set to play a Russian prisoner of war commander in the Hungarian-scripted World War I drama It’s Showtime, Siberia!
The $15 million international co-production, to be shot by Academy Award nominated director Robert Dornhelm, features Sarah Bolger as a young musical prima donna and Jamie Campbell Bower as a conductor in a film that’s reviving the legend of an immensely popular 100-year-old musical stage show with a grim twist of Great War history.
Depardieu, who last year received a Russian passport, has played a number of Russian roles, including that of Rasputin, the early 20th century mystic in a French-Russian co-production of the same name.
Currently in prep, Siberia has accessed $2 million from Hungary’s national film fund, headed by the Budapest-born Hollywood producer Andy Vajna, plus around $1.9 million in Hungarian tax credits, besides equity from other local sources, Russia, Germany and Austria.
Due to shoot next year on location in Hungary, Germany and Austria for a 2016 release date, the film reprises the true story of one of the most successful ever Central European stage musicals — The Czardash Princess — that was re-created and performed by imprisoned soldiers in Siberian prisoner of war camps during the WWI.
“Our film is based on the real-life escapades of soldiers in a POW camp in distant Siberia who stage their very own version of the classic musical and do so largely from memory as flatfooted, bandy-legged blokes hop around the stage playing all the parts including those more typically reserved for genuine ladies,” said Peter Kalmar, the film’s Hungarian producer.
