Wasp Network: Olivier Assayas on filming in Cuba and the new cut of the film

Headlined by Penelope Cruz and Edgar Ramirez, Wasp Network is world premiering and competing in Venice, but the Cuba-set film was a long-shot to get made because of its political subject and the difficulties in raising financing, director Olivier Assayas said.

Wasp Network centers on the true story of Cuban spies in American territory during the 1990s, when anti-Castro groups based in Florida carried out military attacks on Cuba and the Cuban government struck back with the Wasp Network to infiltrate those organizations.

Assayas wrote the screenplay, which is based on Fernando Morais’ book, The Last Soldiers of the Cold War: The Story of the Cuban Five, published by Companhia das Letras.

Assayas, whose credits include the Golden Globe-winning miniseries Carlos and Personal Shopper, which won him the best director prize at Cannes, told Variety that Cuban authorities had initially refused to let the film shoot there.

“They first refused to give us the authorization but discussions continued. So we searched for a location that could substitute for Havana and were about to start shooting elsewhere… But then the Cubans changed their minds and opened all the doors for us,” said Assayas, who lived in Havana for half a year to make the movie.

On the other hand, Olivier Assayas will head back into the cutting room with his Wasp Network, the filmmaker told Deadline on the day of its North American premiere.

Assayas wants to show a tweaked version of the movie at the New York Film Festival in October.

“There are a few things that need clarification. There are a series of fixes I’ll make. I might shorten some parts and lengthen others. The running time won’t change considerably, but it’s about gaining fluidity. I want the film to be understood by those who aren’t aware of the complexities of the local politics. The fixes will be done for the New York Film Festival [screening].”

The director only finished shooting the movie on May 4. “It has been a crazy schedule,” he noted. “To get the film ready for Venice was an intense process. It’s one of the most complex and ambitious films I’ve made.”

Two new posters for The Hummingbird Project

Two new posters for The Hummingbird Project surface, announcing the release of the movie in Australia.

Jesse Eisenberg and an almost unrecognizable Alexander Skarsgård play cousins Vincent and Anton Zalesky in acclaimed director Kim Nguyen's The Hummingbird Project.

Cousins from New York, Vincent (Jesse Eisenberg) and Anton (Alexander Skarsgård) are players in the high-stakes game of High-Frequency Trading, where winning is measured in milliseconds. Their dream? To build a straight fiber-optic cable line between Kansas and New Jersey, making them millions. But nothing is straightforward for this flawed pair.

Constantly breathing down their necks is their former boss Eva Torres (Salma Hayek), a powerful, intoxicating and manipulative trader who will stop at nothing to come between them and beat them at their own game.

Directed by Kim Nguyen, The Hummingbird Project stars Jesse Eisenberg, Alexander Skarsgård and Salma Hayek.

The Hummingbird Project had its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 8, 2018, and was the opening gala at the Vancouver International Film Festival later that month.

Recently The Hummingbird Project won at Canadian Screen Awards the Award for Achievement in Overall Sound (Pierre Mertens, Thomas Gauder, Alexis Oscari).

Prorom released The Hummingbird Project in Hungary on April 4.

Pavarotti: Ron Howard’s film is a love letter to the icon

Ron Howard is in the music documentary business again. Just two years after directing The Beatles: Eight Days a Week about the Fab Four’s early days, he’s back with Pavarotti, a film chronicling the life of the late opera great Luciano Pavarotti that hits US theaters June 7.

Howard admits he wasn’t an avid opera fan before his Eight Days a Week producer Nigel Sinclair pitched him the Pavarotti project.

“Similar to The Beatles: Eight Days a Week movie, he said ‘Look, we found some new footage. I think the family is interested or willing to talk. We don’t know for sure, but does the character interest you at all?’” Howard says in this week’s episode of Variety and iHeart’s movie podcast The Big Ticket.”

“And I said ‘Well, it’s kind of perfect for me because I love explorations where I have an innate respect and fascination, but not necessarily all that much knowledge,’ which by the way even includes The Beatles.”

“I understood how charismatic he was,” Howard said. “A little bit later in my life, I began to appreciate the talent but I had no idea what the journey was.”

Luciano Pavarotti was one of opera’s most celebrated tenors. He was 71 when he died in 2007 from pancreatic cancer.

Pavarotti utilizes never-before-seen footage, as you might expect, but also uses state-of-the-art Dolby Atmos sound technology to make the documentary sound as if you’re sitting there listening to the singer perform for you. So, while you may be used to checking out docs from the comfort of your own home, which works for many of the genre’s best offerings, Pavarotti begs you to watch it in a theater, on the biggest possible screen, with the best possible sound.

Howard’s film is a love letter to the icon, but ultimately Pavarotti is a more of a celebration of the individual behind that façade and a reminder that it’s as much his humanity as his talent that made him a star.

Prorom will release Pavarotti in Slovakia on July 4, in Czech Republic on July 11 (in collaboration with Bonton) and in Hungary through our own company Big Bang Media on October 10, 2019.

Prorom launches animated family film Terra Willy in Romania and Hungary

This weekend, Prorom and Ro Image will release theatrically in Romania the 3D animated adventure Terra Willy. The SF comedy for the whole family is directed by Eric Tosti (The Jungle Bunch).

Following the destruction of their ship, young Willy is separated from his parents with whom he traveled through space. His rescue capsule lands on a wild and unexplored planet. With the help of Buck, a survival robot, he will have to hold on until the arrival of a rescue mission. Meanwhile, Willy, Buck and Flash, an alien creature which they befriended, are discovering the planet, its fauna, its flora... but also its dangers.

The adventure of Willy will be peppered with events or "mini-quests", as emotional as they are physical or precarious. And when our heroes think they have finally "domesticated" the planet (symbolically represented by a creature resembling a giant beetle which Willy is going "tame"), nature will reassert its rightful place…

Terra Willy is a coming-of-age tale, one of apprenticeship and even "redemption" through the intimate quest of our little hero's exploratory mission (Willy is partially responsible for his separation from his parents)Eric Tosti.

Over and beyond the vegetation and landscapes, the film will depict a wide variety of creatures, from the funniest to the most fearsome.

Once again the contribution of the graphic artists will be preponderant, and their creations might even directly inspire gags and full-fledged sketches as they become an integral part of the story, thereby enriching it.

Eric Tosti started making animation in 8 mm format at the age of 13. He co-directed his first stop motion short film in 1998 (Mon copain?) with David Alaux. In 2000 they founded their own production company, TAT productions, with their third partner Jean-François Tosti.

Eric Tosti, David Alaux and Jean-François Tosti started working in 3D animation in 2006. Then, they wrote, produced and directed the TV special Spike and started developing The Jungle Bunch licence. Season 3 of the TV series The Jungle Bunch to the Rescue is in production at the moment. Distributed worldwide, the series is a great success.

The first feature film from TAT productions The Jungle Bunch movie, co-authored by Eric Tosti, David Alaux and Jean-François Tosti, garnered admission of 700.000 in France and was the 4th best-selling French film abroad for 2017 (sold in more than 50 countries).

Prorom will release Terra Willy in Romania on May 31 and in Hungary on November 7.

Keira Knightley has Official Secrets

The true story of a British whistleblower Katharine Gun who leaked information to the press about an illegal National Security Agency spy operation will hit select theaters in the US on August 23.

The film, which premiered at Sundance in January, stars Keira Knightley as Gun.

Official Secrets tells the true story of British Intelligence whistle-blower Katharine Gun (Keira Knightley) who, during the immediate run-up to the 2003 Iraq invasion, leaked a top secret NSA memo exposing a joint US-UK illegal spying operation against members of the UN Security Council. The memo proposed blackmailing smaller, undecided member states into voting for war.

At great personal and professional risk, journalist Martin Bright (Matt Smith) published the leaked document in The Observer newspaper in London, and the story made headlines around the world. Members of the Security Council were outraged and any chance of a UN resolution in favour of war collapsed.

But within days, Bush declared he no longer needed UN backing and invaded anyway. As Iraq descended into chaos, Katharine was arrested and charged with breaching the Official Secrets Act. Martin faced potential charges too. Their legal battles exposed the highest levels of government in both London and Washington...

Official Secrets is directed by Gavin Hood (X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Ender's Game) and the cast includes Keira Knightley, Matthew Goode, Conleth Hill, Indira Varma, Ralph Fiennes, Matt Smith, Rhys Ifans, Shaun Dooley and Jeremy Northam.

Hood teamed with Sara Bernstein and Gregory Bernstein to adapt the book “The Spy Who Tried to Stop a War: Katharine Gun and the Secret Plot to Sanction the Iraq Invasion” by Marcia and Thomas Mitchell.

This is the second time Keira Knightley and Ralph Fiennes have starred alongside each other, the first being in The Duchess (2008).

Run - a new thriller from Searching Director Aneesh Chaganty

Aneesh Chaganty, the co-writer/director of last year’s computer screen mystery Searching, is following up that movie with a more traditionally-filmed thriller called Run.

Sarah Paulson (Glass, American Horror Story) stars opposite newcomer Kiera Allen, and Conan Hodgkinson in the thriller Run from Lionsgate.

Run follows a smart, cool teenager known as “Daughter” (Kiera Allen) who uses a wheelchair and is raised in complete isolation by “Mother” (Sarah Paulson), and the girl slowly learns that her mother is keeping a sinister secret.

Aneesh Chaganty: “Our last movie, Searching, featured a mostly Korean-American cast, but the plot had nothing to do with race or ethnicity. It was just a thriller. We all thought it would be really cool to advocate for a group of people who weren’t media-represented in a major way.

So when we started Run, we tried to do the same thing, except this time with a teenage lead who uses a wheelchair.

Maybe we were just coming off the high of Searching, but internally we never really discussed any other possibility apart from looking for a super-talented actress with a lower-body disability in real life, even though we knew the search to find this person would be insanely unconventional.

We had a great casting director, Rich Delia, who went out to [cast in the] “traditional way.” But ultimately, the most success came via a grassroots approach: word-of-mouth, flyers at theater groups and art programs, and outreach to disability-minded organizations around the country.

It was a months-long process with extremely specific parameters, but we were convinced that person was, statistically, out there. We just had to find her. And eventually, we did. It’s probably the thing I’m most proud of.”

Run will receive a wide release on January 24, 2020.
