peter-and-aliceSoon to be seen on the big screen in the extraordinary sci-fi epic CLOUD ATLAS, actor BEN WHISHAW is now busy prepping for his 3/13 West End committment to a new play called PETER AND ALICE. Written by Tony Award-winner JOHN LOGAN (RED), the play combines fantasy and reality with a chance meeting between the real-life inspirations for J. M. BARRIE’S PETER PAN and LEWIS CARROLL’S ALICE IN WONDERLAND  at the opening of a literary exhibition in 1932 providing the setting. Not only do DENCH and WHISHAW share a common love of the stage but, as fate would have it, she plays “M” to his “Q” in the upcoming JAMES BOND thriller SKYFALL.

‘Trouble With The Curve’ Star Clint Eastwood Wants It Known That Amy Adams Doesn’t Throw Like A Girl

new-trouble-with_the-curve-amy-adams-clint-eastwoodFirst of all, to suggest that CLINT EASTWOOD is the “star” of TROUBLE WITH THE CURVE would be misleading if only because AMY ADAMS manages to steal almost every scene she’s in and the movie belongs to her as much as anyone. In the film, an aging baseball scout hopes one final road trip with his estranged daughter, a Type-A corporate attorney with daddy issues, will restore unity to a seemingly destroyed relationship. EASTWOOD continues to hone the crusty-ol’-fart persona he brought to life in GRAN TORINO and, in so doing, brings a same-old, same-old vibe to the table. Directed by ROBERT LORENZ from a script by RANDY BROWN, the all-star cast also includes JOHN GOODMAN, MATTHEW LILLARD, JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE and ROBERT PATRICK.
Playing the daughter of a guy who spent his life immersed in baseball, ADAMS gets to show-off tossing the ball around and running a few bases and, during last week’s press conference, EASTWOOD wanted it known that she’s pretty good at it. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)
