Jeremy Irons Joins ‘Beautiful Creatures’

From the Hollywood Reporter , Deadline.com and exclusive information from jeremyirons.net

Jeremy Irons has joined the cast of Beautiful Creatures, Alcon’s adaptation of the young adult novel by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl.

Jeremy Irons is the most recent in a flurry of casting announcements, joining Viola Davis (Amma), Emma Thompson (Mrs. Lincoln/Sarafine), Emmy Rossum (Ridley), Thomas Mann (Link) and relative newcomers Alden Ehrenreich (Ethan) and Alice Englert (Lena).

Ehrenreich and Englert are the centerpieces of the coming-of-age story about two star-crossed teens – one a local boy, the other a mysterious new girl – who uncover dark secrets about their families, their history and their town.

Jeremy will play the role of Macon Ravenwood, the mysterious and reclusive uncle of Englert’s character. Macon is an incubus who can see and steal the dreams of others.

Erwin Stoff (Water for ElephantsI Am Legend) will produce along with Kosove and Johnson (The Blind SideThe Book of Eli) and Molly Smith (Something Borrowed, P.S. I Love You.)

Filming begins in April 2012 in and around New Orleans.  Jeremy will likely be on set from approximately April 19 to June 23, after he finishes filming Night Train to Lisbon and before starting production on Season 3 of Showtime’s The Borgias.

Richard LaGravenese (P.S. I Love You) will direct from his adaptation.

Alcon, which has film rights to all three books in the series published by Little Brown Books, including Beautiful Darkness, and Beautiful Chaos, is looking at Beautiful Creatures to kick off a possible franchise at WB.  A fourth book, Beautiful Redemption, will be released October 23, 2012.

Alcon recently produced the hit Dolphin Tale, a 3-D family film starring Morgan Freeman, Harry Connick Jr., Ashley Judd and Kris Kristofferson.

Irons is repped by CAA and Ken McReddie Associates.

Jeremy Irons via Skype for ‘The Words’ Press Conference at Sundance

Jeremy Irons joined the press conference at the Sundance Film Festival for The Words via Skype today, from his home in Oxfordshire.

Jeremy Irons Zooming in on Bradley Cooper’s Hotness – from USA Today

Jeremy Irons might have been thousands of miles away from the Sundance Film Festival, but he was the life of the party at The Words press conference on Thursday.

By Bryan Alexander

Skyping in from his computer in Oxfordshire, England (where he’s about to shoot a new movie), Irons interrupted the press conference at one point to ask to see his co-star Bradley Cooper.

“Could you please turn the camera towards Bradley for me,” Irons said. “My (assistant) is sitting on the floor here and she’s very keen to see him up close.”

People’s reigning Sexiest-Man-Alive Cooper, who was showing some serious Sundance stubble, was finally brought in front of the camera. Irons then coo-ed: “Okay Bradley, now smolder for me.”

Irons puffed away on cigarettes as his image was broadcast on a large screen during the press conference at the Acura Studio in Park City, Utah.

“The advantage I have here is that I can have a cigarette,” he gloated. “The disadvantage is that I cannot hit the ski slopes.”

Irons, 63, also went on to talk about how hard it was to play an old man in the film.

“The hardest thing was to play someone so incredibly old,” he said. “Because you know I’m actually quite young. The reason I have this beard is because I play someone who is also old. It’s a stretch.”

Irons was such a hoot that writer-director Brian Klugman finally announced, “Jeremy will now be doing five-minutes of stand-up.”

Bradley Cooper gets shady in Sundance mystery ‘The Words’

Original article HERE

Now Bradley Cooper is the “textiest man alive.”

This poster for his upcoming Sundance mystery-romance The Words depicts The Hangover actor in silhouette, rendered by lines from the movie’s screenplay — a nod to the movie’s themes about how our use of words defines us (especially if they’re not ours to begin with).

Cooper stars as a struggling writer whose wife (Zoe Saldana) buys a valise for him in an antiques shop, which happens to contain the manuscript for a lost masterwork by a Hemingway-esque writer (Jeremy Irons). Things take a dark turn when he decides to publish it as his own work.

The Words is the closing night movie for the festival, which runs from Jan. 19-29. Co-writers and co-directors Brian Klugman and Lee Sternthal originally penned the script 12 years ago. Thankfully, they never lost it in and old briefcase.

“We started by talking about writers and their lost work. What if you lost all your work? How long would it take you to move on?” says Sternthal.

“That led us to a question, what if you found the work?” Klugman adds.

Olivia Wilde co-stars as the threat looming over Cooper, a fellow scribe who wants to know more about the origin of his best-selling and beloved novel. “Olivia plays someone who wants to be a great writer, and also wants to know the truth about what happened with this book,” Sternthal says.

While it’s difficult to tell a cinematic story about writing (a guy sitting at a keyboard is hard to dramatize), Sternthal and Klugman describe The Words almost as a heist film. It’s challenging to write well, but the tools are available to anyone who wants them — which means they are also easily stolen. “When you’ve been in this industry and try to be an actor or a director — to be anything — you need so many elements to come into place. You need money. You need someone to say, basically, ‘It’s okay, you can do this.’ But to be a writer, to work with words, you need a pen and paper,” Klugman says.

“And the best thing about it is, if it sucks, you can just throw it out,” Sternthal jokes.
