VARIETY: “Game of Thrones” star Emilia Clarke and Oscar-nominated Chiwetel Ejiofor (“12 Years a Slave”) are set to headline “The Pod Generation,” a sci-fi romantic comedy that will be directed by Sophie Barthes. MK2 Films has boarded international sales, and CAA Media Finance is handling domestic rights.

Set in a near future where AI is all the rage and nature is becoming a distant memory, the story revolves around Rachel (Clarke) and Alvy (Ejiofor), a New York couple who are ready to take their relationship to the next level and start a family. Rachel’s work gives them a chance to use a new tool developed by a tech giant, Pegasus, which offers couples the opportunity to share pregnancy on a more equal footing via detachable artificial wombs, or pods. Alvy, a botanist and devoted purist, has doubts, but his love for Rachel prompts him to take a leap of faith. And so begins the wild ride to parenthood in this brave new world.

“The Pod Generation” starts shooting in March 2022. Mk2 films will share the script and sizzle reel at next week’s virtual American Film Market.

“Working with Emilia and Chiwetel as a couple on screen is a dream come true,” said Barthes. “Emilia’s versatility, her disarming sense of humor and capacity to navigate complex emotions are a perfect match to Chiwetel’s charisma and extraordinary screen presence.”

Barthes added that the “idea of the artificial womb as either doom or liberation for women is inherently comedic material.”

Fionnuala Jamison, managing director of MK2 Films, described “The Pod Generation” as a “captivating near-future story with a distinctly feminine twist that really haunts as much as it entertains.” At the same time, she said, it’s “raising ethical questions about where technology is taking us, like once the womb has been commodified, what’s next?”

The executive also pointed out that science fiction hasn’t yet been tackled by many female directors and represents fertile ground for creativity. “We were utterly captivated by Sophie Barthes’ thrilling script and unique vision for ‘The Pod Generation’ and can’t wait to launch sales at AFM,” said Jamison.

“The Pod Generation” will mark Barthes’ third feature following “Cold Souls” and “Madame Bovary,” which played at Sundance, Toronto, Deauville and Telluride.

“The Pod Generation” is being produced by Yann Zenou at Paris-based Quad (“The Death of Stalin,” “The Intouchables”) and Geneviève Lemal for Scope (“Annette,” “Blue is the Warmest Colour”). Clarke is executive producer on the project.

The film will be lensed by Andrij Parekh, cinematographer on HBO’s “Succession” and “Scenes from a Marriage,” as well as “Blue Valentine” and “Watchmen.” Other key crew members include Shane Valentino, the production designer on “Nocturnal Animals” and “Batman Begins”; and Evgueni and Sasha Galperine, the composers of “Happening,” “Loveless” and “The Past.”

Clarke is a four-time Emmy nominee for her portrayal of Daenerys Targaryen on “Game of Thrones.” She is also the recipient of the BAFTA Britannia Award for British Artist of the Year. Next up, she will co-star in Václav Marhoul’s Joseph McCarthy biopic alongside Michael Shannon and Dane DeHaan. She is repped by CAA, Range Media Partners, Emptage Hallett, and Hansen, Jacobson, Teller, Hoberman, Newman, Warren, Richman, Rush and Kaller & Gellman.

Ejiofor, who won a best actor BAFTA for his performance in Steve McQueen’s “12 Years a Slave,” is a five-time Golden Globe nominee and has been twice nominated for an Emmy Award. He’s repped by CAA, Markham Froggatt & Irwin, and Hirsch Wallerstein.

Barthes is repped by CAA, Taylor-Wessing and Paul Nelson at Mosaic who is an executive producer on the project.

DEADLINE: Director Václav Marhoul (The Painted Bird) has tapped two-time Oscar nominee Michael Shannon (Nocturnal Animals) to star as controversial U.S. Senator Joseph McCarthy in the biopic we first revealed last year.

McCarthy will look at the man behind anti-communist doctrine McCarthyism to understand what drove a lawyer and decorated former U.S. Marine down an unprecedented path of demagoguery, show-trials and venomous populism.

Emmy nominee Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones), Dane DeHaan (The Place Beyond the Pines) and Scoot McNairy (C’mon C’mon) will star together with Shannon.

Clarke will play McCarthy’s politically ambitious wife Jean Kerr; DeHaan will be his ruthless young lawyer Roy Cohn. Pic is slated to go into production in the fall 2022 in Prague and the U.S.

Tom O’Connor (The Hitman’s Bodyguard franchise) wrote the original screenplay. The film is produced by Zach Studin together with O’Connor. Rick McCallum, producer of the three Star Wars films – The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith will executive-produce.

HanWay Films has come on board to handle international sales and distribution of the movie and will commence sales at next month’s virtual American Film Market. CAA Media Finance will oversee the U.S sale.

Marhoul previously played in Competition at the Venice Film Festival for drama The Painted Bird.

Heads of department include cinematographer Vladimír Smutný (The Painted Bird, Kolja) and Emmy award-winning production designer Ján Vlasák (The Painted Bird).

Post production and VFX will be handled by visual effects and post production house UPP, renowned for their work on Blade Runner 2049, Wonder Woman, Terminator: Dark Fate, Skyscraper, Rampage and Gemini Man.

Zach Studin commented: “The saga of Joe McCarthy is timeless and the drama behind his rise to power, sobering. It is a powerful reminder to us all that truth and facts are the lifeblood of a free and open society. Tom’s exceptional screenplay, Václav’s uncompromising vision and this remarkable ensemble gives the film the necessary foundation to properly explore this chilling and critical chapter of American history.”

HanWay Films MD Gabrielle Stewart also noted: “There are many countries around the world dealing with their own McCarthys right now and it is no surprise that a director who grew up behind the iron curtain should wish to lift the veil on McCarthy, the ultimate architect of populism. True stories are stranger than fiction, and Tom O’Connor’s screenplay is brilliantly researched, both shocking and entertaining, yet treats its villainous characters with true human complexity. Shannon is perfectly suited to inhabit the role of McCarthy and in Jean Kerr, our story’s very own Lady Macbeth, there’s a delicious role for Emilia Clarke.”

Shannon is represented by CAA, Range Media Partners, and Morris Yorn Barnes Levine Krintzman Rubenstein Kohner & Gellman. Clarke by CAA, Range Media Partners, Emptage Hallett, and Hansen, Jacobson, Teller, Hoberman, Newman, Warren, Richman, Rush, Kaller & Gellman.

January 11 2021

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.
