At 24, the son of the famous English actor Jeremy is ready for his début

Jeremy Irons‘ 24 year-old son, Maximilian, known as Max, is almost a newcomer to the silver screen.

His curriculum to date: three years of acting school, an appearance of just a few seconds in István Szabo’s Being Julia, a small part in Dorian Gray by Oliver Parker and two (equally small) parts in the theatre, in Mike Poulton’s Wallenstein last summer at the Minerva in Chichester and in Artist Descending a Staircase last December at the Old Red Lion in London.

Now his big chance comes from director Catherine Hardwicke who chose Robert Pattinson for Twilight, launching into the stratosphere a young English actor who, until then, could only boast a few appearances in the saga of Harry Potter.

Now it is Max’s turn, together with Shiloh Fernandez (a 25 year old American the director had already taken into consideration for the lead role in Twilight).  He has been chosen for the cast of a new project entitled Red Riding Hood, a Gothic horror rereading of the story of Little Red Riding Hood which will probably appear in American cinemas in April next year.

DORIAN GRAY, directed by HELLRAISER and NIGHTBREED co-star turned filmmaker Oliver Parker, is heading for DVD and Blu-ray.

DORIAN GRAY hits the disc shelves August 24 from NEM (National Entertainment Media). Presented in anamorphic 1.85:1 widescreen, the movie will have 5.1 Surround sound on the DVD and DTS-HD Master Audio on the Blu-ray. Special features on both include:

Max Irons the next Robert Pattinson?

BBC Radio 1 Newsbeat has chosen Max Irons as one of the upcoming Brit actors who could follow in Robert Pattinson’s footsteps.

Who is the next Robert Pattinson?

Thursday, 13 May 2010

By Frances Cronin  – Newsbeat entertainment reporter

We know most of us all love Robert Pattinson but let’s face it he’s super busy at the moment and there’s a lot of buzz in Hollywood about upcoming Brit actors that could follow in his footsteps.

There are currently nearly a dozen films aimed at under 25s in the works in Hollywood and it seems Brit actors are in the running for quite a few of them. We’ve picked out the Brit stars of the future who could be set to take on Robert Pattinson’s mantle.

Max Irons, aged 25.

Max Irons

Max Irons has a famous dad but says that can be a disadvantage at times.

Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke made a star of R-Patz and now she’s chosen Brit Max Irons to star in her new fairytale film The Girl With the Red Riding Hood. Max will star alongside Amanda Seyfried, who has to fend off her village from a werewolf.

He has had roles in films Being Julia and Dorian Gray and he’s been a Burberry model (does that fashion range know how to spot talent or what?)  Max has good acting heritage. He’s part of two acting families, the son of top actors Jeremy Irons and Sinead Cusack.

He admits it can be awkward getting help from his dad: “People often ask you, ‘Does he mentor you?’ It’s funny that because it’s a bit like a father teaching you to drive, it’s kind of unhelpful even though they’re trying their best and it’s hard to take. But in terms of him warning me about the industry it’s always been very helpful.”

“When I made it clear that I wanted to do it [act], he said, ‘Just because I’ve been successful don’t necessarily assume it’ll be the same for you because it is, quite literally, one of the hardest businesses to succeed in’.”

Closing Gala Presentation

With thanks to Momentum Pictures for this closing gala.

We are delighted to close this year’s Festival with an important new UK production.

When a strikingly beautiful but naïve young Dorian (Ben Barnes) arrives in Victorian London he is swept into a social whirlwind by the charismatic Henry Wotton (Colin Firth), who introduces Dorian to the hedonistic pleasures of the city. Henry’s friend, society artist Basil Hallward (Ben Chaplin) paints a portrait of Dorian to capture the full power of his youthful beauty and when it’s unveiled Dorian makes a flippant pledge: he would give anything to stay as he is in the picture – even his soul.

Dorian’s wild adventures continue, but soon he notices that his portrait, which is now locked away in the attic, has taken on an evil and disturbing air, while his own beautiful face goes unmarked by his deeds. Forced by his own evil actions to flee the country, Dorian returns twenty-five years later. To the surprise of his old friends, he looks exactly the same but he’s jaded, having found pleasure but never happiness and he’s haunted by the monstrous painting in the attic. His fear and paranoia grow as rumours of his past misdeeds circulate. Will Dorian get one last chance for love and redemption and more importantly, will he escape with his life?

We hope to welcome some guests involved in this production to introduce our closing gala presentation.

The Sunday Gala Presentation will be preceded by a delicious Spanish meal provided by local restaurant: EL CASTIZO.
Food at 19.00, Film at 20.30

Dorian Gray will also be screened at 11.00 on Sun 6 Sep (All Tickets £7)
