— Production Weekly (@prodweek) May 28, 2013
The Maui Film Festival will be held June 12-16 at the Wailea Resort.
Barry Rivers, the director of the event, announced this week that Golden Globe Award winner Jessica Chastain will be the 2013 Maui Film Festival Nova Award recipient.
The Maui Film Festival Nova Award honors a film artist “for their astonishingly original and seamless performances, and the way they consistently infuse the characters they embody with insight, humanity and wisdom.”
Few film artists are as talented and versatile as Jessica Chastain. She has made this clear in the range of characters she has brought to life in her chameleon-like silver screen performances. Jessica is one-of-a-kind and we couldn’t be more pleased to honor her with the 2013 Maui Film Festival Nova Award.
The award will be presented at the Celestial Cinema located at the Wailea Gold & Emerald Golf Course.
This news came directly from Jessica. On her Facebook page she brought the news that Wilde Salome finally will be released.
I’ve been talking with Al and I’m hearing that our film is to be released this year. It’s an exciting prospect, but I don’t want to spill all the beans so I’ll wait till it’s officially announced. Can you believe it? It’s the first film I ever made.
Let’s hope more details on it can be shared soon, but it’s definitely great news!
The Independent is reporting that Jessica is one of the front runners for the upcoming movie “Rodham”.
Rodham – about the younger years of the former First Lady and senator – is due out some time around the 2016 presidential election, in which Clinton might be a canditate. It will focus on 1974, when she was a Washington lawyer.
Among those in the running to play the 26-year-old Clinton are Amanda Seyfried, who starred in Les Misérables, Zero Dark Thirty’s Jessica Chastain, Reese Witherspoon, and Scarlett Johansson, most recently seen playing Janet Leigh in Hitchcock.
Rodham director James Ponstoldt said: “They’re all wonderful actresses. We’re very fortunate that a lot of really great actors are interested in playing these roles. We’re in an enviable position.”
“Regardless of people’s political affiliation or how they feel about Hillary Clinton, you don’t find people who question the quality of her intelligence or her drive. I want a wonderful actress who could embody that.”
The film’s script, written by Young il-Kim, made last year’s “Black List”, which highlights Hollywood’s best unrealised scripts. Having been leaked by The Daily Beast earlier this month, it attracted attention for its racier scenes. But Kim told The Daily Telegraph: “I didn’t write 50 Shades of Rodham, as some news outlets are suggesting. I am a boring prude with little imagination.”
Asked whether the final draft would include sex scenes, Mr Kim replied: “It’s an evolving process so I don’t know. She was an attractive 26-year-old with an amazing future. And that’s our thematic focus.”
More pictures of Jessica for her campaign to YSL Beauty has been added, and also a few already added was replaced for better quality ones. This is a very beautiful photoshoot, and classy as Jessica herself. I hope they do a new promotional video.
Jessica looked gorgeous while attending amfAR’s Cinema Against AIDS during the 2013 Cannes Film Festival at Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc on Thursday (May 23) in Cap d’Antibes, France. She was wearing a red Saint Laurent dress, and was with her boyfriend Gian Luca Passi de Preposulo. She was also pictured with Zachary Quinto, which makes me super happy!
Check pictures in our gallery, also additional pictures of yesterday while attending All is Lost premiere.
Jessica attended this evening the ‘All is Lost’ premiere in Cannes, looking beautiful in a Givenchy Couture purple dress. I have 100 HQ pictures added of this event, plus added a bunch of HQ pictures from yesterday (thanks to Nicole for her help finding in). Check it:
