    Brit Marling Reportedly Eyes Tom Cruise's 'One Shot' & Redford/LaBeouf Pic 'The Company You Keep'

    Allegedly Turned Down Steven Soderbergh's 'Magic Mike' To Focus On 'The East'There is no mistaking it -- Brit Marling is having a moment. Arriving at Sundance earlier this year with two films, “Another Earth” and “Sound Of Your Voice,” performing triple duties on each film -- acting, writing and producing -- she soon saw major buzz surround both works, with Fox Searchlight picking up rights for the pair, and the former flick earning two prizes for director Mike Cahill. Certainly not a bad way to make your entrance into Hollywood and like Noomi Rapace and Jennifer Lawrence in 2010, this year Marling seems to be the new actress that everyone wa...

    Interview: Brit Marling Takes Us On A Tour Of 'Another Earth'

    In this week's "Another Earth," rising star Brit Marling plays Rhoda, a troubled young woman who is released from prison after serving a sentence for a fatal drunk driving incident.

    Fox Searchlight Backing 'The East' From 'The Sound Of My Voice' Duo Brit Marling and Zal Batmanglij

    Brit Marling has to be the most exciting talent to emerge so far in 2011. Virtually unheard of at the start of the year, she made a huge splash at Sundance by writing and starring in Mike Cahill's offbeat sci-fi drama "Another Earth," which became one of the big buys of the festival when Fox Searchl...

Concerning a couple of documentary filmmakers who infiltrate a cult, the film, on paper, seems suspenseful and ripe for a penetrating insight into the nature of perception versus reality and an exploration of the idea of how we form bonds that unite us. But onscreen, “Sound Of My Voice” demands even more attention, as director Zal Batmanglij and co-writer and star Brit Marling have created something altogether haunting and unexpected (as we noted in our review). When plot elements surface suggesting that this may be a sort of “genre” picture, the exec...
