Teresa Palmer, Game of Thrones’ Michiel Huisman and The Railway Man’s Sam Reid head the cast of 2.22, director Paul Currie’s romantic thriller which starts shooting in Sydney on Monday.
The Dutch-born Huisman plays Dylan, an air traffic controller in New York who nearly causes a fatal mid- air collision at the strike of 2:22.
Forced to go on leave, he meets and falls in love with Palmer’s character Sarah, who coincidentally was one of the passengers on the plane. To his horror Dyan realizes the same patterns in his life are happening every day.
Reid plays Jonas, a high profile New York-based artist who is an ex-boyfriend of Sarah’s. The cast includes Richard Davies as a fellow air traffic controller, John Waters as Dylan’s boss, Maeve Dermody as his ex-girlfriend, Kerry Armstrong and Remy Hii.
“We’re creating a smart, stylized romantic thriller,” Currie tells IF. Much of the film takes place at New York’s Grand Central Central Station, which has been recreated on sets at the Fox Studios.
Creative studio Spinifex Group is creating an in-camera hologram using 3D projector mapping, which Currie says will create a 3D environment in 2D. The DoP is David Eggby.
Huisman’s credits include World War Z and the TV series Treme, Nashville and Orphan Black. Palmer’s busy slate includes Kriv Stenders’ Kill Me Three Times, Terrence Malick’s Knight Of Cups, Ericson Core’s Point Break remake and John Hillcoat’s Triple Nine.
This is Currie’s second film as director; his first was One Perfect Day in 2004. His directing credits include episodes of TV’s Twentysomething and the feature documentary Every Heart Beats True: The Jim Stynes Story.
He co-wrote the screenplay with American Todd Stein, who got the idea after meeting his future wife at a Buddhist retreat where no one spoke.
Currie’s Lightstream Pictures is producing with Jodi Matterson, Pandemonium’s Bill Mechanic, Walk The Walk Entertainment’s Steve Hutensky and Icon’s Bruce Davey. Jackie O’Sullivan is an EP.
Icon will release in Australia and Good Universe is handling international sales.
Your wait now has an endpoint: HBO just announced the premiere date for Game of Thrones season 5.
The launch date is not a big surprise as Thrones always tends to return around the same time each year. But now it’s official: Thrones will unveil its fifth season on Sunday, April 12. HBO will also launch the fourth season of Veep and the second season of Silicon Valley on the same date.
Thrones fans have seen practically nothing from the new season so far and over the next few months there are several key assets yet to be revealed. HBO has yet to release photos from the new season or a trailer of the eagerly awaited new season. There have been a couple teasers, a few seconds each, largely consisting of old footage.
The premiere date comes on the heels of HBO’s surprise announcement that Thrones will get a limited IMAX roll-out later this month. The big-screen presentation of HBO’s most successful series of all time begins Jan. 23 will include the final two episodes of season 4 and an exclusive trailer for the upcoming season. According to IMAX, this will mark the first time a TV series has been showcased in the format.
HBO also announced Thursday that Bill Maher’s Real Time talk-show has been renewed for a 14th and 15th season, and that comedian Tig Notaro (Transparent) has landed her first stand-up comedy special.
“Orphan Black” fans can rejoice: the first real look at Season 3 looks sufficiently grim.
A teaser trailer for the BBC America sci-fi drama landed Thursday with few hints to the storyline — but plenty of brooding by several of the clones played by actress Tatiana Maslany.
“Those with power do not give it up easily,” says a grim-faced Alison, one of those genetic copies at the center of the story, hinting at the power struggle against the organization that birthed the clones.
Also on display are a couple of the male clones, played by Ari Millen, who were revealed in the Season 2 finale to be the byproduct of the nefarious-sounding Project Castor.
Like everything else with the show, the purpose of these new males clones are shrouded in secrecy and certainly not telegraphed in the “This Is War” trailer.
“How many of them are there actually?” co-creator Graeme Manson told Entertainment Weekly. “Well, that’s part of the mystery too.”
The new season of “Orphan Black” bows April 18.
