DIGITAL SPY: A new animated movie is in the works at Sky with a star-studded cast.

Based on the book by the same name from Terry Pratchett’s Discworld series of novels, The Amazing Maurice sees the likes of Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke and Downton Abbey alumnus Hugh Bonneville in its ranks.

Respectively taking on the roles of Malicia and the Mayor from the popular children’s book, the two will also be joined by Hugh Laurie (House MD) as Maurice, David Thewlis (Wonder Woman) as Boss Man, Himesh Patel (Yesterday) as Keith, and Gemma Arterton (The King’s Man) as Peaches.

The Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents was published in 2001 as the 28th entry in Terry Pratchett’s series and the first aimed directly at children. The book has since sold nearly 90 million copies worldwide.

Inspired by the German fairy tale about the Pied Piper of Hamelin and a parody of the folk tale genre, the tale revolves around Maurice, a sentient cat with a knack for business. He recruits a young boy and a clan of sentient rants to travel town to town with and infest cities only to get paid to remove the rats under the guise of magic musical skills.

About the plot of their original movie, Sky said: “When Maurice and the rodents reach the stricken town of Bad Blintz, they meet a bookworm, Malicia. Their little con soon goes down the drain as something very bad is waiting for them in the cellars.”

The Amazing Maurice will come to Sky in 2022.

VOGUE – Since 2015, Chanel and Tribeca Enterprises (founded by Robert De Niro and Jane Rosenthal) have selected young, female and/or nonbinary filmmakers to participate in their joint mentorship fund competition Through Her Lens. The candidates, a group of about 10, get paired up with mentors—experts in script-to-screen development, casting, music composition, costume design, producing, and directing—and because Chanel is involved, the group is always top-notch, made up of the discerning sorts of figures you might expect to see sitting front row. They include Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Diane Kruger, Julianne Moore, Katie Holmes, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathryn Bigelow; while the likes of A.V. Rockwell, Nikyatu Jusu, and Hannah Peterson have competed, going on to screen their work at Sundance, the Toronto International Film Festival, and the BlackStar Film Festival.

In years past, Through Her Lens has kicked off with a luncheon, usually at De Niro’s Locanda Verde in New York, that unfolds like a parade of Chanel-clad film-industry talents. In the three days that follow, participants get one-on-one mentoring sessions and master classes dedicated to the development of short film projects. The program culminates with a lucky three being awarded grant money to help realize their films. This year, there will be no tweedy lunch or face-to-face mentorship sessions, but Chanel and Tribeca Enterprises are committed to continuing the program 2020 style: virtually.

Ahead of this year’s lineup, we caught up with Emilia Clarke, who will serve as mentors alongside Glenn Close, Niki Caro, Lucy Boynton, and Uzo Aduba. Calling her involvement “an absolute no-brainer,” the former Game of Thrones star rang from London, and her firecracker enthusiasm could be felt through the transatlantic call. She’s been at home for much of 2020, which has allowed her the time to develop projects for her own production company and to work with her charity, Same You, dedicated to brain injury recovery. Through Her Lens is just another chance for Clarke to give back. Below, she stresses the value of mentorship, the need to know your references and the glorious benefits of binge-watching cinema.

How did you first hear about Through Her Lens?

I got a call from my rep telling me about Through Her Lens. As soon as I heard about it, I was like, “Damn straight. I am so in!” I did a judging panel for the BFI last year and it was so fulfilling and amazing. I really passionately care about new voices being heard, especially when those voices are female, so this was an absolute no-brainer. It’s kind of funny because you’re sort of like, well, what can I bring to the table? What experiences can I share that might be beneficial to someone coming into the industry? Because Lord knows I would have loved [a mentor] for myself! I think that when you’re a female in this industry, you do have a slightly singular experience. And I think that it’s becoming increasingly valuable for us women to talk to each other.

What experiences and advice will you share with your mentees?

An understanding of what I’ve learned and what to expect; what you can push back on and what the environment you are being sent into is like. Because everybody starts with, largely speaking, a wide-eyed, optimistic gaze, and I think that the best way to have your stories told and heard is by understanding the environment you’re walking into. And now, as a producer as well, I see a whole other side of things, which is teaching me a lot as an actor and will definitely be valuable to a young filmmaker or a new voice.

You mentioned you wished you had more of a mentor. Could you expand on that?

November 10, 2020  AliKat No comments Casting News, The Amazing Maurice

VARIETY – Golden Globe-winning actor Hugh Laurie (“House”) and “Game of Thrones” actor Emilia Clarke will be part of the voice cast for animated feature “The Amazing Maurice.”

The voice cast also includes David Thewlis (“Wonder Woman”), Himesh Patel (“Yesterday”), Gemma Arterton (“Vita & Virginia”) and Hugh Bonneville (“Downton Abbey”). Toby Genkel (“Two by Two: Overboard!”) and Florian Westermann (“Little Dodo”) will co-direct.

The film will be an adaptation of bestselling author, the late Terry Pratchett’s 2001 book “The Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents,” which is part of his iconic Discworld series. The book is a take on the popular folk tale about the Pied Piper of Hamelin. It won the Carnegie medal that recognizes the best children’s book in the U.K.

The story follows a streetwise ginger cat who has the perfect money-making scam. He finds a kid who plays a pipe, and also befriends his very own horde of talking rats. When they reach the stricken town of Bad Blintz, their con game goes awry.

The charity reading will take place on Sunday 25 October

WHAT’S ON STAGE – A virtual reading of Tom Stoppard’s The Real Inspector Hound will take place via Zoom at 7pm on 25 October.

Jonathan Church will direct Sanjeev Bhaskar (Magnus), Samantha Bond (Cynthia), Simon Callow (Moon), Emilia Clarke (Felicity), Freddie Fox (Simon), Derek Jacobi (Birdboot), Jennifer Saunders (Mrs Drudge) and Gary Wilmot (Hound) in the production, which is narrated by Robert Lindsay.

Stoppard’s farce, which first premiered in 1968 with a cast including the likes of Richard Briers and Ronnie Barker, parodies the Agatha Christie thrillers.

The show won’t be recorded or repeated, with all proceeds from tickets (costing £35) going to the Royal Theatrical Fund. A previous reading of Private Lives raised more than £44,000 earlier this year.

ET Canada – Emilia Clarke celebrated her 34th birthday in style Friday.

The actress shared a series of snaps from the most “exhilarating experience” of her life on Instagram, looking super happy in every photo.

Clarke, who played Mother Of Dragons Daenerys Targaryen on “Game of Thrones”, regularly took to the skies on the back of a dragon on the show, with her hashtagging her latest post: “Who says you can only fly dragons?”

She also asked in her caption, “What could match the profound existential terror of another birthday?”

The star was joined at the skydive centre by her mother Jennifer, who, it seems, did not jump with her.

One snap also showed Clarke holding up a “Well done you just jumped out of an aeroplane” certificate.

Clarke’s adrenalin-filled adventure comes after she developed a newfound “appreciation” for her loved ones amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Clarke joined Time magazine’s “TIME100 Talks” and opened up about what she has learned through quarantine and surviving two brain aneurysms.

“When you personally come very close to dying — which I did twice — it brings into light a conversation which you have with yourself which goes to the tune of: appreciation for the things you have in your life, thanks for the people who are here,” she explained.

Clarke added, “COVID has paradoxically been quite an incredible moment for us to really assess that properly and see: how are the ways, during a global pandemic, can we reach out and make people not feel alone?”

BUSTLE – Step aside, Mother of Dragons. As it turns out, actors Ryan Reynolds and Emilia Clarke have the same birthday — but the Deadpool actor isn’t keen on sharing it. Today, Oct. 23, Reynolds and The Game of Thrones star celebrate another trip around the sun. According to Reynolds, though, the day is feeling a bit cramped this year — so he made some adjustments.

It all started when Maximum Effort — Reynolds’ production company — poked fun at its owner on Twitter and wished Clarke a happy birthday. In response, the actor tweeted, “So sorry. I moved her birthday this year. It was feeling a little crowded for me.” Clarke, for her part, has not responded to the change of plans, but that might be because she’s been busy jumping out of planes.

Earlier today, Clarke shared on Instagram that she celebrated her birthday by going skydiving. “What could match the profound existential terror of another birthday?” she wrote alongside a series of photos that showed her checking into Hinton Skydiving Centre in England and wearing a full set of gear. “Jumping out of a goddamn plane is what,” she added.

There’s no telling if Reynolds also has plans to propel himself out of a plane today, but the sarcastic tweet comes after the Canadian actor revealed that he recently voted in his very first American election ahead of the presidential election on Nov. 3. Both Reynolds and wife Blake Lively documented the milestone with the same photos on their respective Instagram accounts. “This is my first time voting in America,” Reynolds captioned his post. “I’d like to thank my wife Blake for making my first time so gentle and loving. It was super scary at first, then exciting and now I’m a little tired. But proud.”

Lively echoed that it was Reynolds’ “first time” in her own Instagram post. “He was understandably scared,” she wrote. “It all happened so fast. Like, REALLY fast. He wept. I pretended to weep.”

SYFY – HBO’s Game of Thrones wasn’t your average fantasy epic. It was grim, dirty, violent, and sexual. In fact, it had such frequent and graphic nudity that it helped coin the phrase “sexposition” when referring to plot exposition being doled out by a nude character. But according to a new book, the experiences of the cast in these intimate scenes left plenty to be desired — especially in the hit show’s early, scrappy days.

James Hibberd’s new oral history Fire Cannot Kill a Dragon: Game of Thrones and the Official Untold Story of the Epic Series digs into this plenty, including interviews with everyone from Khal Drogo’s Jason Momoa to Cersei’s body double, Rebecca Van Cleave. Few were complementary to the series’ handling of its sex scenes, most of which took place long before HBO mandated hiring intimacy coordinators for all its shows in 2018.

Momoa took first-time showrunners D. B. Weiss and David Benioff’s unprofessional handling of the situations in stride, though he needed to sometimes refuse their requests. Momoa recalled a time while shooting a Season 1 sex scene when he placed the intimacy pouch (which covers an actor’s genitals in nude scenes) in Benioff’s hand: “That was because David had been like, ‘Momoa, just take it off!’ You know, giving me s***. ‘Sacrifice! Do it for your art!’ I’m just like, ‘F*** you, bro. My wife would be pissed. That’s for one lady only, man.'”

Momoa added: “So afterward I ripped the thing off and kept it in my hand and gave him a big hug and a handshake and was like, ‘Hey, now you have a little bit of me on you, buddy.'”

His scene partner, Daenerys Targaryen actress Emilia Clarke, has spoken at length about her uncomfortable experiences doing nudity on the show. “Because Jason had experience — he was an experienced actor who had done a bunch of stuff before coming on to this — he was like, ‘Sweetie, this is how it’s meant to be, this is how it’s not meant to be, and I’m going to make sure that that’s the f***ing gaze,’ Clarke said on the podcast Armchair Expert. “He was always like, ‘Can we get her a f***ing robe? She’s shivering!’ … He was so kind and considerate and cared about me as a human being.”

“I was so desperate to be the most professional actor I could be that I’d be like, ‘Yeah, sure,’ for anything they threw at me,” Clarke said in Fire Cannot Kill a Dragon. “I’ll just cry about it in the bathroom later, whatever, you won’t know.”

The actress, who appeared fully nude in sex scenes and when Daenerys is “reborn” in fire alongside her dragons, spoke about the pressures of being an actress fresh from drama school on that set. “Those were tough days,” she said of the first season, adding, “I’ve had fights on set before where I’m like, ‘No, the sheet stays up.’”

Misleading promises from production reportedly ranged from people sneaking onto a closed set to a supposedly closed set being thrown wide open. Hodor actor Kristian Nairn remembered during his Season 1 nude scene (“probably the most traumatic day of my life,” he previously said), when a prosthetic was worn because there was a child in the scene. Alas, things did not go as planned.

“I was s*** scared, but I did it because of the whole body-positive thing — Game of Thrones has a lot of people of different shapes and sizes, probably more than any other show ever,” Nairn said. “It was a very busy day on set, which was the opposite of what they told me. I’ve never seen a busier set!”
