    Set Photos Of Michael Winterbottom's 'King Of Soho' Unveil Steve Coogan As Porn Baron Paul Raymond

    After unveiling "The Trip" last year and with "Trishna" arriving this summer, the prolific and versatile Michael Winterbottom shows no sign of slowing down, and is currently-lensing "The King Of Soho," his biopic of porn baron Paul Raymond that'll reunite the helmer...

    'In The Loop' Star Chris Addison, Stand-Up Dara O'Briain & Rising Actress Sarah Solemani Join Michael Winterbottom's 'The King Of Soho'

    We feel fairly confident in saying that Michael Winterbottom, or at least his casting director, is a big comedy fan. His lighter work, like "24 Hour Party People," "A Cock And Bull Story" and "The Trip" didn't just help to launch the big-screen careers of Steve Coog...

    Imogen Poots, Anna Friel & Tamsin Egerton Join Steve Coogan In Michael Winterbottom's 'The King Of Soho'

    He might be coming off one of the more unsatisfying films of his career, in the shape of "Tess of the D'Ubervilles" adaptation "Trishna" with Frieda Pinto and Riz Ahmed, but given his career so far, we're always going to be keenly watching what Michael Winterbottom i...

    The Career Progression of Freida Pinto, From 'Slumdog' to 'Trishna': Auteur's Leading Lady or Shallow Ingenue?

    Since Freida Pinto and Dev Patel broke out with Danny Boyle's Oscar-winning "Slumdog Millionaire," the real-life couple have had slightly different career paths. Pinto's had the boost of beauty endorsements (L'Oreal) and magazine covers, and it's easier to find roles for a beautiful ethnically-ambig...

    Sony Picks Up Michael Winterbottom's 'Bailout' Starring Jack Black, Filming To Start In January

    Film About The Amanda Knox Trial Also Still In The WorksWhen you're an independent filmmaker like Michael Winterbottom, who generally has a few projects on the go at any given time, it usually comes down financing and support to determine which film goes next and what remains on the backburner. And sometimes those decisions are made lightning fast. When we spoke to the director's frequent producing partner Andrew Eaton at the BFI London Film Festival last month, he was reserved about "Bailout" getting made saying, "That’s a juggling act between Jack Black’s schedule and whether we can do enough pre-sales to make it happen." Well, they need no...

    Andrew Eaton Says U.S. Version Of 'The Trip' Without Steve Coogan & Rob Brydon Could Be On The Way

    Plus Updates On Michael Winterbottom Projects 'The Promised Land,' 'Bailout,' 'Seven Days' And 'Paul Raymond's Wonderful World Of Erotica' Relationships are key in the filmmaking world, particularly in terms of actually getting the damn things made, and it's no surprise that many of the most successful filmmakers are ones with long-running close partnerships with producers. One of the closest today is that between eclectic filmmaker Michael Winterbottom and his long-term producing partner Andrew Eaton. The pair first worked together on the 1994 TV series "Family," founding Revolution Films together around the same time, and have made a film a...

    LFF '11 Review: Michael Winterbottom's 'Trishna' Is Picturesque, But Entirely Lacking In Passion

    Over his career, Michael Winterbottom has hopped frequently from genre to genre, from subject matter to subject matter, rarely covering the same territory twice. But one of the few things he has returned to is the work of Thomas Hardy. The late 19th century British author has so far inspired two of...

    Michael Winterbottom Planning To Direct Beatles Movie 'The Longest Cocktail Party'

    'Four Lions' Writer Jesse Armstrong Penning Script For Liam Gallagher-Produced Film, But Johnny Depp Likely Won't Play LeadExclusive: Few directors have such a keen eye for music as Michael Winterbottom. From The Cranberries-stuffed soundtrack in his sophomore feature "Butterfly Kiss" to "24 Hour Party People," one of the best films about rock'n'roll ever made, to the perverse 50s cuts in last year's "The Killer Inside Me," he's always had a great sense for the right backdrop to the action, whether it be an original score or a song. And now, it looks like the director is heading towards tackling perhaps the Holy Grail of popular music, by mak...
