Marc Munden to direct new adaptation of The Secret Garden

Heyday Films and StudioCanal are teaming up for a new adaptation of Frances Hogson Burnett’s classic 1911 book The Secret Garden, which has Marc Munden (National Treasure, Utopia) set to direct from a script by Jack Thorne (The Scouting Book for Boys, Wonder).

The Secret Garden follows Mary Lennox, a sickly 10-year-old orphan who is set to live with her uncle after her parents die during a cholera outbreak in India. As she begins to explore her uncle’s estate, Mary hears of a secret walled garden, which she soon discovers has magical properties.

The new movie is described as “a fresh take” on the classic story, and continues the partnership between Harry Potter producer David Heyman’s Heyday Films and StudioCanal, which has recently scored a major critical and commercial hit with Paddington 2.

13 days until Oscar nominations... Can Roger Deakins win with a 14th nod?

by Nathaniel R

the great Roger Deakins on set

Is 13 an unlucky number? Not particular with Oscar, no, but Roger Deakins is surely anxious to move beyond it. The 68 year old cinematographer is still hugely in demand and a regular Oscar competitor but he's currently sitting at 13 nominations and Still has no statues to show for it. Will #14 prove lucky should he be nominated for Blade Runner 2049 this year (as is widely expected)? His nominated film list is just one beautiful astonishment after another: The Shawshank Redemption, Fargo, Kundun, O Brother Where Art Thou?, The Man Who Wasn't There, No Country For Old Men, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, The Reader, True Grit, Skyfall, Prisoners, Unbroken, Sicario. His filmography also includes films like Thunderheart, The Secret Garden, Barton Fink, and Sid & Nancy. Will he win on March 4th or will someone else steal his

Chrissie Fit Reveals the Moment She Realized Race Plays a Heavy Role in Hollywood: 'It's Not Fair' (Exclusive)
Chrissie Fit is recognizable to fans across the world for her portrayal of foreign exchange student Flo in Pitch Perfect 2, but like most Latina actresses, her road to success in Hollywood hasn't been easy.

"I remember my first audition was for The Secret Garden, and I auditioned for Mary Lennox, which was like, the Caucasian, British actor, and the director was looking at me, like, perplexed.

We’ve got questions, and you’ve (maybe) got answers! With another week of TV gone by, we’re lobbing queries left and right about shows including The Vampire Diaries, The Bachelor, This Is Us and NCIS!

"Prince William actually said that his wife likes to color in The Secret Garden, which was really sweet," Basford told the Telegraph on Tuesday, referring to her first coloring book, which sold over 1 million copies and arguably started the adult coloring craze.

"I think we've just seen the coloring community flourish," Basford continued of fans like Middleton. "I think people are just craving a digital detox."
