Kidman and Fiennes to Star in Reader

Source: Variety

August 18, 2007


Nicole Kidman and Ralph Fiennes will star in The Reader for The Weinstein Company. Stephen Daldry is directing a script by David Hare.

The film is a love story based on the bestselling novel by German writer Bernhard Schlink. The setting is contemporary Germany, where a man recounts the story of his erotic awakening in a covert love affair with an older woman in the wake of WWII.

Mirage Productions partners Anthony Minghella and Sydney Pollack are producing with Scott Rudin. Shooting begins in Berlin late September.

Kidman, Daldry, Hare and Rudin last collaborated on The Hours, for which the actress won an Oscar. She has worked with Minghella on Cold Mountain and Pollack on The Interpreter. Fiennes starred for Minghella in The English Patient.

Se as notícias se confirmarem já é um filme a se esperar, acho difícil Daldry decepcionar e Nicole está precisando estrelar bons filmes urgentemente.06

concordo, a AMO, sou fa, mas reconheço - ela está em uma PESSIMA fase. depois de despontar om de olhos bem fechados, so veio coisa OTIMA, como "as horas", "moulin rouge", "os outros", "dogville", e tantos outros legais. ai depois q ganhou o oscar so fez coisa mais ou menos, chegando ao APICE com "a feiticeira", o pior filme dela, eu acho. Fur nao foi bem, the invasion tb, mas ela ta voltando, margot at the wedding parece ser muito legal, e tem a BUSSOLA em dezembro, e um filme com a naomi watts pro ano q vem, o novo do baz, diretor de mouling, e isso agora. ela se reencontrara :D

A sinopse do livro em português, pra quem não fala inglês:

 

O livro relata a história de um menino de quinze anos, que se envolve

amorosamente com uma mulher vinte anos mais velha. Ela o inicia no

amor, mantendo com ele um ritual invariável: ele lê em voz alta, os

dois tomam banho e fazem amor. Anos depois ele veria sua ex-amante

acusada de ter participado de crimes hediondos. Como conciliar o amor e

a condenação que a razão impõe? Com sua narrativa concisa, este livro é

um relato pungente e uma reflexão sobre o passado da Alemanha.

Concentration Camp Closed for Nicole Kidman's "Reader"

 

 

 

The makers of love story "The Reader," which stars Nicole Kidman, have been denied permission to lense scenes at Sachsenhausen concentration camp, north of Berlin. The Weinstein Co pic, which also stars Ralph Fiennes, is being directed by Stephen Daldry.

 

 

 

In the film, which is set in contemporary Germany, a man recounts the story of his erotic awakening in a covert love affair with an older woman in the wake of WWII. Lensing begins this week on the pic.

 

 

 

Horst Seferens, a spokesman for the curators at Sachsenhausen, said that the filmmakers had written to inquire if they could use the memorial for a key scene, but the request was turned down.

 

 

 

Only documentary filmmakers are allowed to use the site, which is now a memorial to the millions of Jews killed in the Holocaust, he said. Adding: "Former concentration camp sites are cemeteries — it's just not appropriate to use them as film sets."

Parece que Nicole Kidman terá que engordar, e muito, para interpretar sua personagem em The Reader.Vais ser realmente interessante ver a Kidman tão mudada assim...13

 

Nicole bulks up on the Bridget Jones diet

She is renowned as one of the most svelte actresses in Hollywood, but all of a sudden Nicole Kidman is piling on the pounds.

 

And like Renee Zellweger before her, it's all for her art.

 

Just as Renee had to bulk up to play Bridget Jones, so Nicole has already put on 10lb for her latest film, The Reader.

 

And

the 40-year-old Australian actress is planning to double her weight

gain in the coming weeks, according to sources on the movie, in which

she stars alongside Ralph Fiennes.

 

"Nicole has said this is one of the most challenging film roles of her career," a close friend said.

 

"She is naturally very slim and loves to run and swim so she is always very toned.

 

"The part she plays demands that she gets fatter throughout the movie as her character slips into middle age.

 

"It's a very demanding role because there are a lot of explicit lovemaking scenes.

 

"The film is set over several decades so her character changes a lot.

 

"Nicole

was originally planning to use prosthetics but was told by the

director, Stephen Daldry, that it would be more realistic if she gained

the weight."

 

The star plays Hanna Schmitz in the adaptation of

the bestselling German novel The Reader, which deals with the emotional

repercussions of the Holocaust-in post-war Germany.

 

It tells the story of Michael Berg, a 15-yearold boy who has a passionate affair with older woman Hanna in 1958.

But

Hanna disappears suddenly and Michael sees her again only years later

when she is on trial for a war crime after it is revealed she was an SS

camp guard.

 

Nicole's calorie-rich diet includes drinking daily protein shakes and ensuring carbohydrates are in every meal.

 

"She

has been eating about four meals a day," said the friend. It's not

usual to see her work her way through a big plate of pasta, with bread,

and then a dessert.

 

She's having to gorge herself. She has quite

enjoyed gaining the first 10lb and has been having lots of her

favourite puddings as well as chocolate.

 

The Jones diet: Renee Zellwegger as Bridget

"Nicole loves her new bosom, but she is finding eating so much makes her lethargic and sleepy.

 

"She's

usually running on adrenaline and has to be reminded to eat a meal. Now

she's eating four, and sometimes five small meals a day."

 

The recent weight gain led to speculation that the actress was expecting her first baby.

 

The

Oscar-winner was snapped this month in a tightfitting white dress in

New York sporting what looked like a baby bulge and a bigger cleavage.

 

"Nicole

usually has a flat stomach so when she was pictured looking more curvy,

everyone thought she was pregnant," said the source. "In fact, she has

been putting on weight and has had to buy bigger clothes."

 

The

actress follows in the steps of Zellweger, who piled on 30lb to play

Bridget Jones in two movies by eating a diet of pizza, peanut-butter

sandwiches and fast food and drinking Guinness.

 

She ballooned from a dress size six to 14 before dieting back to her normal weight.

Nicole Kidman deu uma declaração recentemente a Vanity Fair sobre THE READER:

 

I am a little nervous"

"There are roles, for which I have to open up myself entirely, and

others, where I have to create a vacuum, to be able to change into some

one else. I am always little anxious about the latter one. But I hope,

that I master it"

"It's a new view of the Second World War"

“I was in Berlin once already, at the Berlin Film Festival (also

called Berlinale), but I had plenty of time, to explore the city. It is

teeming with Hollywood stars there right now. My friend Naomi Watts

will be there at the same time with her baby; she is shooting with Tom

Tykwer (“The perfume”) the film “The International”. I already applied

to be a babysitter.”

 

Sobre Australia, deveria falar isso no tópico do filme mas tudo bem, como todo filme do Luhrmann o processo de filmagens é extenuante portanto parece que ainda tem cenas a serem gravadas até dezembro, o que se comenta é que Baz Luhrmann quer fazer um filme com mais de 2 hrs de duração, um épico mesmo.

Ainda não tem muitas fotos de THE READER só fotos dos sets.Alguns atores começaram a rodar cenas.Mas Nicole Kidman e Ralph Fiennes, parece q só a partir de dezembro.

Acho q para o ano q vem.Naum sei ao certo , sei q a Kidman entra em estudio em Dezembro, já que ainda tem 6 semanas de filmagem para Australia.Disseram que a estréia está prevista para Dezembro de 2008, mas pode ser que fique para 2009, aconteceu o mesmo com As Horas, se naum me engano as filmagens foram de nov 2000-maio 2001 e estava previsto para estrear em 2001 competindo no Oscar que Uma Mente Brilhante saiu vencedor, pois é eles preferiram adiar a estréia para 1 ano e o filme foi lançado em 2002.

Não sei se o Harvey Wenstein pirou ou o q, mas ele declarou isso aqui neste endereço:

 

"At the moment, I'm working with Stephen Daldry on an adaptation of The

Reader starring Nicole Kidman and Jude Law. If you look at all these great

British directors – Stephen Frears, Ken Loach and Daldry – they all had

tremendous TV experience. It's a situation that I wish was repeated around

the world."
