Amazon Boards Marjane Satrapi’s Marie Curie Biopic ‘Radioactive’ (Exclusive)
Amazon Prime Video has partnered with Studiocanal for Marjane Satrapi’s “Radioactive,” a biopic of two-time Nobel Prize winner Marie Curie that stars Rosamund Pike. As part of the deal, Amazon is co-financing with Studiocanal and has taken international rights outside of France, Germany, Australia/New Zealand and the U.K., where Studiocanal has direct distribution operations.

The film, which just started shooting in Budapest, is being produced by Tim Bevan, Eric Fellner and Paul Webster at Working Title. The pic was written by Jack Thorne, based on Lauren Redniss’ 2010 graphic novel “Radioactive: Marie & Pierre Curie: A Tale of Love and Fallout.”

“Radioactive” charts the scientific and romantic passions of Marie and Pierre Curie, and the transformative effects of the discoveries of the wife and husband team throughout the 20th century.

Satrapi, who is best-known for her Oscar- and BAFTA-nominated “Persepolis,” previously described the movie as being about “life, love, passion, science and death.

BAFTA Awards Dominated by ‘Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri,’ as ‘Dunkirk’ Lags

As ever, the British Academy of Film and Television Arts nominations for the Ee British Academy Film Awards favor homegrown fare. Thus many nomination slots that might have included such Hollywood films as “The Post” or “Wonder Woman” went to the likes of “Dunkirk,””Darkest Hour,” and “Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool.”

Leading the BAFTA nominations field was Guillermo del Toro’s “The Shape of Water” with 12 nominations. But the Mexican filmmaker wound up taking home Best Director and the film won Production Design and Score. With wins at the Critics Choice, Golden Globe, Directors Guild and BAFTA, the directing Oscar is Del Toro’s to lose.

Hanna TV show on the way from Amazon starring Joel Kinnaman

Joseph Baxter Feb 9, 2018

Amazon’s serial adaptation of the 2011 actioner, Hanna, will reunite The Killing stars Joel Kinnaman and Mireille Enos...

Hanna, the stylish 2011 action film which elevated the career of Saoirse Ronan, is set to be adapted as a TV series by Amazon. Interestingly enough, the series will also serve as a reunion platform for two of its announced main players in Joel Kinnaman and Mireille Enos, who co-starred on the 2011-2014 AMC-later-Netflix murder-mystery series, The Killing.

Amazon’s casting of Joel Kinnaman for Hanna represents a bit of a coup, since the actor’s stock is at its highest point, coming off the recent release of (streaming competitor) Netflix’s sci-fi series, Altered Carbon, on which he stars. However, Kinnaman’s onscreen reunion with his former The Killing police partner, Enos, will likely be an acrimonious one, since they will be depicted as mortal enemies, engaging

Her previous directing credits include the FX series “Legion,” the HBO series “Room 104,” and the film “Buster’s Mal Heart.”

The series will begin shooting in March across Hungary, Slovakia, Spain and the U.K.

Written by David Farr, who co-wrote the original film, “Hanna” follows the journey of a young girl with extraordinary skills as she evades the relentless pursuit of an off-book CIA agent and tries to unearth the truth behind who she is.

Enos plays Marissa, an efficient and ruthless agent, having risen up the ranks of the CIA. However, beneath her cool exterior is a deeply buried secret that continues to haunt her. The reappearance
