    Patricia Clarkson Will Head To Eco-Terrorist Thriller 'The East'

    Patricia Clarkson is simply one of the best (and one of our favorite) actresses out there. And while the Oscar nominee can do dramatic work with ease, more recently she has been showing that she's just as adept at comedy, delivering memorable turns in "Easy A," "Friends With Benefits," and as Tammy ...

    Alexander Skarsgård Says His Dad Encouraged Him To Work With Lars Von Trier

    While Lars von Trier might get himself into trouble with everybody else and may have ruffled the feathers of Björk, who swore off acting after starring in "Dancer In the Dark," the Danish auteur has a small stable of actors who continue to return to his films. The promise of working on a set that is...

    Toby Kebbell Joins Brit Marling, Ellen Page & Alexander Skarsgard In 'The East'

    There may be no sign of their first collaboration, "The Sound of My Voice," appearing in theaters yet -- the disappointing box office take of "Another Earth" probably means a rethink in marketing -- but that hasn't stopped Fox Searchlight, writer/star Brit Marling and director Zal Batmanglij from pl...

    Ellen Page Will Be Alexander Skarsgård's Former Lover In ‘The East’

    We'll say this for Ellen Page, she's not following anyone's playbook. After breaking out in a big way thanks to "Juno," the actress stuck it out (mostly) with smaller films, taking on roles in "Smart People," "Whip It" and "Peacock." Of course, you don't ignore the phone when Christopher Nolan comes...

    Alexander Skarsgård Headed To Brit Marling & Zal Batmanglij's 'The East'

    Swede Alexander Skarsgård first made his talent known on this side of the ocean as Sgt. Brad 'Iceman' Colbert in HBO's "Generation Kill" but these days he's better known as the devilishly handsome Eric Northman on "True Blood." Though he's yet to make a major presence on the big screen, he's got a few projects hitting theaters in the next little while that should bring more attention to the actor from those who don't watch the vampire series. Next month he'll be one of the main antagonists in the "Straw Dogs" remake and later this fall, he'll appear opposite Kirsten Dunst in a brief role in Lars Von Trier's "Melancholia" while next summer he'...

    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...

    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...

    'Sound Of My Voice' Director Zal Batmanglij & Co-Writer/Star Brit Marling To Reteam For 'The East'

    We were over the moon for Zal Batmanglij and Brit Marling's "Sound of My Voice" at SXSW, a queasy, often haunting story of a couple attempting to exploit a creepy underground cult. The expectation was that director Batmanglij and co-writer/star Marling would respectively move in different directions...
