James McAvoy Joins The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby Double Feature [21 May 2012|11:32pm]

love_james


James McAvoy (Atonement, X-Men First Class) will star opposite the previously announced Jessica Chastain (The Help, The Tree of Life) in the double-feature film project The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: His and The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Hers, Myriad Pictures announced today. The project was previously set to star Joel Edgerton in the role.

Ned Benson (In Defiance of Gravity) wrote the two scripts and will direct both films.

The love story explores how a married couple in New York City deals with an emotional, life-altering experience, from the two different perspectives of the husband, Conor, (McAvoy), a restaurant owner, and of the wife, Eleanor, (Chastain), who goes back to college.

Myriad CEO Kirk D’Amico said, “I am thrilled that we can share the excitement of James joining the cast with our buyers in Cannes, who have been so enthusiastic about the project from the beginning. James is one of the finest actors working today and I look forward to seeing Ned’s rich, complex characters come alive.”

“'The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby' represents an alternate approach to content,” continued D’Amico. “New distribution models make it creatively possible for feature films to break out of the format of one 90-minute experience.”

But both films will be stand-alone movies. D’Amico added, “We have to make both films work on their own, both for the buyers but also for the audiences. Together these films will describe a fully, more complete look at these characters and their lives.”

Cassandra Kulukundis (A Late Quartet, In Defiance of Gravity) is producing and will also serve as casting director.

James McAvoy explains why we all have secret Daddy issues with Santa Claus [24 Nov 2011|11:50pm]

love_james


Santa Claus. He's rather like the parent we eventually shipped off the the old folks' home after we became tired of all the loud and annoying antics. But that's not how it should be! Discovering the flaws of your loved ones should bring you together, not tear you apart — at least that's the message of Aardman Animations' Arthur Christmas. And the film's star, James McAvoy, is here to tell us why Santa Claus doesn't care about you (and why that's OK).
I saw Arthur Christmas and it made me cry (a lot), so thanks for that.

James McAvoy: It made me cry too!

thisislondon.co.uk interview with James [16 Nov 2011|12:09pm]

love_james


James McAvoy is going cold turkey. We've snuck out the back of the café near his home in Crouch End into the deserted outdoor eating area, the better to indulge - but now the actor is denying himself. As I throw caution and health to the wind, he's hungrily eyeing me, battling his addictions.

"I'm off the bread," he reveals, "and I do feel better actually. I hit 30 and I thought, 'Wait a minute, I need to slow down a bit here…'"

That birthday milestone, plus the birth of his first son, have made the Glasgow-born star of Atonement take stock. He wasn't losing the pounds as quickly as he used to. This sweary, down-to-earth, proudly un-Hollywood A-lister won't be doing anything about his incoming white hairs and is forever asking make-up ladies to refrain from plucking his increasingly bushy eyebrows ("They're gonna be my f*****g passport to playing wizards in my Seventies!"). However, the 32-year-old does not love his girth. So, it's out with the bread.

New interviews with James. [16 Nov 2011|12:04pm]

love_james


"I wanted Arthur to be really appealing without being cute, with soft hair that would make you want to pat him," is how the Arthur Christmas director Sarah Smith envisaged her lead character. Is that James McAvoy? It is now.

"I thought I was auditioning, but it turned out, I actually already had the gig, which was a bonus," is how the softly-spoken Scottish actor remembers it.

MANILA, Philippines -- “Santa’s my dad!,” exclaims British actor James McAvoy who provides the voice to the title role of Arthur, Santa Claus' youngest son, in Sony Pictures Animation Studios' new, 3D family comedy “Arthur Christmas.”

“Arthur believes in Christmas, and not just because he’s been born into the family business,” says McAvoy. “He believes it in his soul – there’s nobody else in the world who cares about Christmas more than Arthur.”

More under the cut...Collapse )






Having scored a surprise hit earlier this year with Gnomeo & Juliet, James McAvoy is back behind the mic for Aardman Animation's latest offering, Arthur Christmas.

"It's a pretty cool experience for an actor, doing animation," offers McAvoy. "You've got to project your character, your emotions, clearly and simply. And then you've got to allow for the fact that there's going to be a physical representation of you up there on the screen, who won't necessarily look like you. Or walk like you. Or even talk like you. If you're lucky. In a way, it's what every actor dreams of -- completely losing yourself in a role to the point where no one will recognise it's you."

grace

According to one ratings board, Arthur Christmas contains 'some mild rude humour', which has become the one saving grace of a Christmas film these days. It certainly worked for Elf.

"There is a comparison to be made to Elf, indeed," nods McAvoy. "A dose of humour is pretty effective when it comes to countering all the usual seasonal trimmings. This is Aardman though, so . . . as John Lasseter always says, it's all about the story. Whether it's shot in digital animation or with your kid's crayons, if the story works, the audience will follow."

We'll be seeing plenty of McAvoy over the coming months, acting alongside Mark Strong and Peter Mullan in Evan Creevy's crime drama Welcome To The Punch, alongside Vincent Cassel and Rosario Dawson in Danny Boyle's Trance (currently filming), and early next year, there's Jon S Baird's adaptation of the Irvine Welsh novel Filth, which will co-star Jamie Bell and Alan Cumming. There's also talk of the sequel to the Angelina Jolie-led, 2008 hit Wanted.

"Yeah, I've heard talk about that one too," smiles McAvoy. I like mixing it up. Keeps me interested, and, hopefully, that comes across in my work . . ."

"Arthur Christmas" video interview and Radio Times interview [06 Nov 2011|02:00pm]

In a café near his north London home, over a proper cup of tea (leaves, pot, china crockery, the works – “it’s why I come here”), James McAvoy is talking about the ones that got away.

First there was The Conspirator, the Robert Redford-directed historical drama about the assassination of President Lincoln, in which he had the lead role. McAvoy screws his face up at mention of the film.

“It’s a long film. There are a lot of words. It’s a bit slow. It’s a courtroom drama, d’you know what I mean? It was a bit like Greek drama – all the action is off-screen.” It “got away” in the sense that it was barely noticed on its release in the UK during the summer.

Then there’s 50/50, in cinemas later this month, with Joseph Gordon Levitt as an ill young man with a 50 per cent chance of survival. Back when the film was titled “I’m with Cancer”, the role was McAvoy’s. But the Scottish actor bailed on the project because, it was reported, he wanted to be at home for the birth of his first child.

“It wasn’t that,” he says, frowning slightly. McAvoy and his partner, actress Anne-Marie Duff (they met while filming TV series Shameless in 2004), are known – renowned even – for their desire to keep their private lives private.

“Unexpected family stuff up the road came in, and I had to be there,” he continues – “up the road” being Scottish expat speak for events at home, in McAvoy’s case Glasgow, where he and his younger sister were raised by his grandparents after his parents split when he was seven.

More "Wanted 2" news [03 Nov 2011|09:47am]

love_james


America is officially in the crosshairs of a “Wanted” sequel. Late September we learned that original writers Derek Haas and Michael Brandt had been secured to reanimate the stagnant state of “Wanted 2,” the sequel to 2008’s Timur Bekmambetov-directed, special effects laden action-thriller.

In an interview with ComingSoon.net, Hass and Brandt perused the process of their writing projects. Touching on “Wanted 2”, the pair — who shared screenwriting credits on the first “Wanted” with Chris Morgan—seem to indicate that the sequel’s pre-production has finally hit its pace.

Asked if the team were ever inspired to try directing their material themselves, Brandt used their current gig on “Wanted 2” to explain the goal of writing to a certain director’s strengths — a director they hope, in this case, is Timur Bekmambetov.


“Right now, we're writing the sequel, ‘Wanted 2.’ We're doing that knowing with absolute certainty that I'm not going to be directing that movie. I'm not interested in it and, hopefully, Timur [Bekmambetov] will come back on to direct. You write it with Timur's sensibility and try to give him the most leeway to do what he does really well."

Asked later in the interview about the sequel’s status as a current project, Derek Haas reinforces the team’s desire to work with Bekmambetov.

"We're hoping that it's going to be Timur directing. I think Michael and I are going to strong-arm him into Universal and make him do it. We're writing and basically picking Wesley up a few years after the events of the first movie and throwing him back into that world."

So far we know the sequel’s plot will focus in on Wesley a few years after the events of the last film. At this early stage, there is no word on whether James McAvoy will return to the starring role.

One lethal weapon “Wanted 2” will definitely not be packing is crowd-drawing A-lister Angelina Jolie. Rumors point to the possibility that Kristen Stewart may be considered for a role, although to MTV, the actress has only elaborated on her belief in the quality of the first film, and McAvoy's performance.

Kristen's interview:

The original report had Stewart tagged to play a "young, ass-kicking assassin in the Fraternity," and Bekmambetov's top choice to star opposite McAvoy's reluctant assassin, Wesley Gibson. Though she wouldn't confirm or deny the rumor, Stewart did say she'd be interested in doing an action movie — if the right one presented itself, that is.

"Yes, definitely — as long as it was good," she told MTV News. "'Wanted' was a great movie. James McAvoy makes that movie different from most other action movies because he's a real guy — you're so with him."

"I feel like most action movies don't have that," she explained. "So if it had that, definitely. But I wouldn't just want to be in a mindless blow-up movie. I'm not into it."

James talks about Keira, Pirates and X-Men [03 Nov 2011|09:43am]

love_james


SCOTTISH actor James McAvoy has revealed he thought his fellow Atonement star Keira Knightley, 26, could have been “crippled” by her recurring role in the Pirates Of The Caribbean films as she was “labelled as a terrible actor”.
James, 32, believed Keira’s acting career could have been very different because “people’s opinions of her were really, really harsh”.
He tells the Radio Times: “She was in a film that, acting-wise, wasn’t that demanding and she got labelled as a terrible actor. That could have been the end for her.”
McAvoy almost won Orlando Bloom’s role on the Pirates series, which he now feels very grateful for not getting. “By nature of the fact you’re in something that cost hundreds of millions, you’re just a target,” he said.
But it seems not to have affected his career, having starred opposite Angelina Jolie in the 2008 film Wanted. In his latest film Arthur Christmas he stars with Bill Nighy and Hugh Laurie.
Speaking about his foray into the world of Hollywood blockbusters James admits his role as the young Professor Xavier in X-Men First Class “was more money that I thought I’d ever make in my life” although he denies it’s the millions and millions people assume.

“The money’s gone out of the business. It’s never the figures that people think. And more recently that’s become even more true.”
