The Playlist have posted an article with some more details regarding the plot for Emma’s upcoming Woody Allen picture Magic In The Moonlight, as well as two LQ images:
Set in the 1920s on the French Riviera (wait, why isn’t this at Cannes again??), Woody Allen’s 5,0000th film (ok, less), “Magic In The Moonlight,” is a romantic comedy about an Englishman brought in to help unmask a possible swindle. And, of course, personal and professional complications ensue. That’s all we’ve known for several months, but new plot details have emerged along with two new photos from the film.
If you’ve seen the PBS documentary on Woody Allen (or hell, read closely about him at all), you know he has a well-known “drawer” of ideas—literally sometimes just scraps of paper, each with a one-sentence idea—that he’s amassed over the years. When stuck for a movie-concept, the über-prolific writer sometimes just opens the drawer, grabs a random scrap of paper and thinks, “OK, yeah, this will be my next movie,” and then goes to town on his typewriter (no, really).
And so, “Magic In the Moonlight” is one of those ideas. According to a recent issue of Entertainment Weekly, Allen had kicked around the idea of a rom com about an Englishman who sets out to expose a phony mystic, only to end up falling for her for a long time.
“I had it on a piece of notepaper in my drawer for ages,” Allen told the magazine. “I knew it was a good plot, but I kept seeing it as a contemporary thing and something about that just didn’t smell right to me. Then when it occurred to me it could be set in the south of France in the 1920s, all of a sudden it just felt good.”
Shot by the great Darius Khondji, who also shot Allen’s “Midnight in Paris,” “Magic In The Moonlight” is due in theaters July 25.
Following the recent announcement that Spider-Man is the first Super Hero ambassador for Earth Hour, the global movement organized by WWF, Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone from the highly anticipated motion picture The Amazing Spider-Man 2 have chosen to back two separate projects on ‘Earth Hour Blue’, a new crowdfunding and crowdsourcing platform for the planet.
With a message to inspire individuals to use their power to become a Super Hero for the planet, the new platform launched from Earth Hour’s global headquarters in Singapore will allow anyone to use their voice or their dollar to take action and support projects across the globe.
Now run globally from Singapore at the heart of Asia, Earth Hour has rapidly grown to involve hundreds of millions of people from all walks of life and global landmarks across 7000 cities and towns and 154 countries and territories.
Andrew Garfield, who plays Peter Parker/Spider-Man in the upcoming movie The Amazing Spider-Man 2, is supporting the Earth Hour Blue project ‘A Flame Called Hope’. The project aims to provide clean bio-gas energy for local communities in Nepal, thereby reducing deforestation and providing an alternate means of livelihood for families in the area.
Columbia Pictures and Regency Enterprises have marked out a December 25, 2014 release date for their untitled Cameron Crowe film, which stars Bradley Cooper, Emma Stone, Rachel McAdams, Bill Murray, John Krasinski, Danny McBride, and Alec Baldwin. Scott Rudin is producing with Crowe, who wrote and directed the romantic comedy. There’s still no title, but the plot centers on a defense contractor (Cooper) who falls for an Air Force pilot (Stone) after he is assigned to oversee the launch of a weapons satellite from Hawaii.
