Oscar Nominated Thriller ‘Elle’ Hits Blu-Ray In March


One of last year’s cinematic wonders was Elle, a picture which netted Isabelle Huppert (Things to Come, Louder Than Bombs) a Golden Globe Award. Now the film, which also garnered Huppert a Supporting Actress nomination, hits Blu-ray, DVD and digital March 14 via Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.

The plotline centers on Michéle (Huppert), a career driven executive whose life is changed after she’s attacked at her home. Driven by revenge, Michéle plays an intricate cat and mouse game with her rapist. Along with her Golden Globe win, Huppert was named Best Actress by the National Society of Film Critics, New York Film Critics Circle, Gotham Awards, Los Angeles Film Critics Association, San Francisco Film Critics Circle, St. Louis Film Critics, Austin Film Critics, and Film Critics Circle.

Though the internationally renowned actress has starred in such films as Heaven’s Gate and, more recently, The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby, Huppert has not been a household name stateside until the release of Elle. It’s also refreshing to see director Paul Verhoeven, whose often provocative and intricate take on sexuality has garnered him his share of controversy, receive critical acclaim late in his career.

Special features on the disc include the featurette  “A Tale of Empowerment: Making Elle” and “Celebrating an Icon: AFI’s Tribute to Isabelle Huppert.

Halle Berry is in talks to star in thriller “The Surrogate” for 20th Century Fox.
Helmer Paul Verhoeven is onboard to develop the project, which revolves around a couple who hire a surrogate to carry their child and find out mid-term that the surrogate is insane.
Project would mark Berry’s return to the bigscreen after having a baby last year. She hasn’t starred in a film since 2007’s “Perfect Stranger” opposite Bruce Willis.

The Surrogate,” which had been in development at the now-shuttered Fox Atomic, would also reteam Berry with producer Ralph Winter, who produced Fox’s “X-Men” trilogy, in which the actress starred.
