Movies of the week
Laura Linney is one of the better actresses this generation has produced. In ‘Hyde Park and Hudson’, she mesmerizes as a headstrong woman, who values her priorities and quietly shoves away the Karl’s implications to come close. Her intrusive gestures affect without a miss and you know that this lady was born to act.
A Wikileaks themed project to be produced under the aegis of Dreamworks, has her on the list of prospective actresses for an undisclosed role. Benerdict Cumberbatch will play the company’s pioneering establisher, Julian Assanage. James McAvoy has landed the role of Daniel Domscheit-Berg, who forged close ties with Assanage and saw company grow from strength to strength before a telling debacle.
The film will take a far-view of the working relationship between the two men. If Linney gets a call, it remains to be seen how the plot would split its focus between her and the two main characters. Whatever may be her role, one thing is certified, give her anything, she out comes all guns blazing.
Bill Condon, the father-figure behind the success of the epic Twilight movie series will direct the project. With so many A-listers on the stable and a self-sufficient theme, a bell ringer is in the making.
