Production on Henry IV, Part 1 and Henry IV, Part 2 has begun. A cast read-through took place the first week of January. Filming began on the 9th and will last nine weeks for both films. Locations include Caerphilly Castle in Wales, which is apparently being used as the site of Hotspur’s meeting with Owen Glendower. Filming also took place at Ashridge.

Filming will take place at Gloucester Cathedral from 25 January, for about two weeks.

In February, filming moves to Berkeley Castle in Gloucestershire.

From the official BBC Press Release:

Continuing with the incredibly high standard set by Richard II, Jeremy Irons plays the role of King Henry IV in this production adapted and directed by Richard Eyre. Tom Hiddleston joins the cast as Prince Hal, Simon Russell Beale plays Falstaff and Alun Armstrong plays the Earl of Northumberland. Lady Northumberland is played by Niamh Cusack with Hotspur played by Joe Armstrong.

As with Richard II and Henry V, these bold adaptations are set in the medieval period and are being shot at some of the UK’s most stunning locations. The films will bring a new scale to Shakespeare in one of the most ambitious television projects of recent years.

Henry IV, Part 1 is expected to air on BBC2 in the summer of 2012 along with the other three films in the series: Richard II, Henry IV, Part 2 and Henry V. The four films will also be shown in the U.S. on Great Performances on PBS.

Irish Repertory Theatre presented a concert performance of the classic Lerner and Loewe musical Camelot, as part of the company’s 2011 benefit gala at Broadway’s Shubert Theatre, on Monday, June 6. Charlotte Moore adapted and directed the production, with musical direction by Mark Hartman.

In Camelot, King Arthur has created a utopian land of chivalry and civil rule. But when his beloved Queen Guenevere and Sir Lancelot, his most trusted knight, succumb to their passion for one another, he faces a terrible dilemma that will rock his kingdom to its very core.

The show starred Jeremy Irons as King Arthur, James Barbour as Lancelot, and Melissa Errico as Guenevere. The cast also included Dewey Caddell, Jacob Clemente, Rory Duffy, Josh Grisetti, Christopher Lynn, Victoria Mallory, Brian Murray, Ciarán Sheehan, James A. Stephens, and KT Sullivan.

Ciarán O’Reilly provided narration, and the concert staging included a large chorus and accompaniment by a full orchestra.

In addition to the concert, the gala included dinner with the cast at Sardi’s, following the performance.

Max Irons Twitterview

Max Irons did a Twitterview (Twitter Interview) on Thursday 3 March 2011 with @wbpictures and answered a few questions from fans. Scroll down to read the full transcript…

Here is the transcript:

Q:  What was your favorite part about being able to work with Catherine Hardwicke as your director?

Max:  She’s got a child-like imagination and an infectious energy, which is what you need when you’re doing a movie about a wolf.

Q:  Did you ever read Little Red Riding Hood when you were little?

Max:  I never read it. I would have been told it, but the thing about fairy tales is that you never remember the first time you heard it.

Q:  What are the differences and similarities between the Little Red Riding Hood story and the film?

Max: Forget what you know about Little Red Riding Hood and leave it at the door. Ours is much edgier and darker and far more exciting.

Q:  What was it like working with the legendary Gary Oldman?

Max:  It was amazing watching a seasoned professional like him. You learn so much.

Q:   How did you guys make the characters you played in Red Riding Hood your own? Were they easy to connect with?

Max:  Aside from the wolf, which requires the imagination, a love triangle in one form or another is something I’m sure we’ve all experienced.

Q:   What do you look for in a girl? Does she need to wear a red hood? LOL

Max:  Yes, she has to wear a red hood. It’s incredibly important.

Q:  Given the choice, would you rather be a werewolf or a vampire? Why?

Max:  I’d rather be a robot. Way cooler.

Q:  What was the most embarrassing moment while filming Red Riding Hood?

Max:  Amanda Seyfried, at any opportunity, tries to embarrass you. So many. Mainly about me being English.

Q: If you could have played any character in film history or worked with any actor/director, who would it be?

Max:  I would have liked to work with Stanley Kubrick. I’ll get back to you re: character.

Q: You have chosen this career despite your parents’ “optimistic remarks”. Have you ever experienced what they warned you about?

Max:  Good question. Yes. You know, acting is an unstable business. You have to have thick skin and remember why you’re doing what you do.

Q: What was your favorite set/scene of the movie? Or your favorite prop you were able to use? Why?

Max:  Riding through a forest on a massive white stallion. Not really a prop, but hey, good fun.

Q:  When will you be on the London stage again? You are so brilliant.

Max:  As soon as possible. When I have acting dreams, it always involves stage.

Q:  Do you have a Twitter of your own???

Max:  I don’t. Wouldn’t know what to do with it.

Q:  Any fun memories from set?

Max:  Listening to Gary Oldman endlessly, I mean ENDLESSLY, singing Beatles covers.

Q:  If you could only take one item with you on an island, what would it be?

Max:  A special girl.

Q:  Finally, why should everyone go see Red Riding Hood on March 11th?

Max: Because it’s going to be a dark re-imagining of something that means so much to people. Plus we’ve got an amazing cast.

Jeremy Irons Supports the BUYACREDIT.com Project

Jeremy Irons has lent his support to the BUYACREDIT.com Project.

from the http://www.buyacredit.com blog post:

“The incomparable Jeremy Irons has also given us his full support. We haven’t yet had the privilege of meeting him, but we’ve been in constant contact with his lovely assistant …who has been filling Jeremy in on our progress. Just a few days ago, Jeremy told us that we had his full support in making “Clovis Dardentor” and following through on the BUYACREDIT.COM project.

It’s an unbeatable feeling to know that such BIG stars back us in what we’re doing. Jude Law, Sir Ian McKellen, Jeremy Irons, Whoopi Goldberg, Rowan Atkinson, Stephen Fry, Phillip Schofield, Joanna Lumley… AH, there are too many!”

Read the full blog entry at BUYACREDIT.com Project.

The legendary and incomparable Academy Award winning screen and stage actor, Jeremy Irons is a strong supporter of BUYACREDIT.COM and a producer on the film. Jeremy has been a source of behind-the-scenes support and guidance since early on in the project, and has now given us his full public backing. To have the endorsement of such a revered and respected figure-head in the movie industry is just staggering, and as such, there are no words that can aptly or deservedly describe how we feel about having him involved.

BUYACREDIT.COM is a project aiming to raise a movie’s budget by selling its end credits online. For just $10 you can help fund a film, become a Movie Producer alongside some of Hollywood’s biggest names and see your OWN name roll down on the end credits of the movie. Give enough and you could find yourself amongst the Top 100 Producers, an exclusive club that entitles you to a truck-load of awesome perks. Alternatively, for $100 you can take full advantage of BUYACREDIT.COM by advertising your website on our Pixel-Ad Wall. Every cent raised goes towards the movie’s $2 Million budget.

The movie is “Clovis Dardentor” (IMDB), a film based on a forgotten novel of the same name by the legendary author, Jules Verne. We have turned to the public to help us raise its budget. Through BUYACREDIT.COM we are asking anyone and everyone to become movie producers and to help fund the film.

Because the public are indeed, the movie’s producers, we are keeping the production of “Clovis Dardentor” open. You will be able to keep up to date through the blog, Twitter, newsletters and our regular video blogs. Our aim is to immerse our supporters in every single aspect of the project and the movie’s production, whilst also encouraging our producers to have their say on how things are done. We are essentially creating a real-time ‘Making Of’ for all to see.

Jeremy Irons part of TS Eliot US/UK Exchange at Old Vic

Jeremy Irons and James Earl Jones have been confirmed as guests for the 2010 TS Eliot US/UK Exchange programme for the Old Vic New Voices.

More details will soon be available at http://www.oldvictheatre.com/ovnv.php

The New Voices Club is a year-round professional development programme for actors, directors, writers and producers, aged 18-25, living in London. We also run a sister programme in New York, the New Voices Network, for 21 to 30 year old practitioners. Members must demonstrate an exceptional talent, a deep commitment to a career in theatre and a passion for peer collaboration.

The Club and Network offer support for members to realise projects that they are passionate about, and host a dynamic series of workshops, talks and networking events.

The annual highlight is our T.S. Eliot US/UK Exchange – an expansion of our old Exchange program, that now offers 50 British and 50 American artists the chance to explore theatrical life on the opposite side of the Atlantic.

__________________________________________________________________________________________

At the Old Vic New Voices US/UK Exchange launch on 23 February, Jeremy Irons read from TS Eliot’s Four Quartets .

Many thanks to Corinne Furness, who attended the launch, for this account of the event:

“Jeremy Irons was introduced at the event as representing the T S Eliot foundation (who are sponsoring the exchange) who had asked him to read some of Eliot’s work. He was clean shaven and had his trousers tucked into a pair of boots!

Before he did the reading he told a story about going to New York for the first time: He was filming on a boat on the way back from New York but it meant he had a few days in New York. He was walking down Madison Avenue and asked someone where Fifth Avenue was – the man replied ‘what do you think I am – an information bureau?’ which he thought was a brilliant line (Only Jeremy got the punch line of that wrong to start with saying ‘what do you think I am – an employment agency?’ and then joked that he was thinking ahead of himself). He then said he went into a shop and there was a man talking as he bought a cigar and all that Jeremy could think was ‘everyone here talks like they’re in a movie’ and, subsequently, that for a long time whenever he had to do an American accent he thought he sounded like he was in a movie and that there was something disingenuous about it.

He then went on to say that he’d read Eliot’s poetry before with Eliot’s widow Valerie and that he ‘must have done something right’ as they seemed to like it. He then read from the first section of Four Quartets (‘Burnt Norton’, part 3) before saying that he had to leave to go rehearse!”

According to the Old Vic New Voices twitter feed, over 400 people were in attendance at the launch.

The View recap

[On The View's official website, they put "Jeffery" instead of "Jeremy", so I've made the corrections.]
recaps-jirons

Wednesday, Apr. 22

Today, the ladies celebrated Sherri’s birthday! It all kicked off with a great giveaway of tickets to a screening of Earth. FYI: For every ticket purchased during opening week, Disneynature will plant a tree in Brazil’s Atlantic Forest — which is considered the most endangered rain forest in the world.

The first guest was Jeremy Irons, an actor who’s captivated audiences on the big screen — and now on stage in Impressionism. After Jeremy told audiences about what you can expect to see in the play, we watched a clip of The Lion King — for which both Jeremy and our Whoopi provided voices. Jeremy has won an Academy Award, a Tony award, a Screen Actors Guild award, two Emmy awards, and two Golden Globes for his work! You can see Jeremy in Impressionism at the Schoenfeld Theater in New York City. Everyone went home with a pair of tickets for the show …

Since it was Sherri’s birthday, The View challenged the award-winning cake artists from Food Challenge Network Challenge: Last Cake Standing to make their best creations in her honor! The host of Last Cake Standing, Keegan Gerhard, was here to introduce us to the contestants — and to help chose the winner. All three contestants did a wonderful job, and then Sherri chose her favorite. Be sure to watch Last Cake Standing this Sunday night to see the crowning of the winner!

Sherri’s birthday wish came true when the Clarke Sisters stopped by to perform “Higher Ground” from the new gospel all-star tribute Oh Happy Day — as well as their classic hit “You Brought The Sunshine.” Everyone in our audience took home a copy of Oh Happy Day and the group’s latest CD, The Clark Sisters Live&One Last Time!
