Pierce Brosnan is settling comfortably into a life of appearing in movies directly related to defunct, iconic bands. A few years ago he sang his way through the Abba-themed/scored musical Mamma Mia, and now he’s continuing the trend by considering a role in recent Oscar winner Susanne Bier’s (In A Better World) new romantic comedy All You Need Is Love.

Nothing is known about the film’s plot, although Bier has revealed that the film will be a lot more light hearted than her darker, Foreign Language Oscar winner. She said of the new film:

““It’s a tender story with a much lighter atmosphere than my previous works: enough with conflicts.”

This new, conflict free, possibly Beatles related comedy shoots on the Amalfi coast this spring. It’ unknown how or if the Fab Four will figure into the plot, but it’s entirely possible that it could involve iTunes (*The Beatles, now available on iTunes!!). (Empire)

Hollywood To Make French Thriller Less Sexy http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/hollywood-to-make-french-thriller-less-sexy/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/hollywood-to-make-french-thriller-less-sexy/#comments Wed, 23 Feb 2011 21:49:30 +0000 Dave Horwitz http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=29411 The director of the Danish film 'In A Better World' is next slated to direct a remake of the French thriller 'Rapt'. Probably with less smoldering sexuality. Oh well.

Susanne Bier, Deadline’s pick for best foreign language Oscar this Sunday for her Danish film In A Better World, is next slated to direct a remake of the French thriller Rapt. She’s writing the script with her World co-writer Anders Thomas Jensen. One of Rapt’s producers, Thomas Milling Smith, had this to say about hiring Bier for the remake:

“The underlying story is definitely a high stakes thriller but it’s also a very strong character piece. That’s why we went after Susanne to re-imagine it with Anders because she was keen to work on a thriller. At the same time she’s one of the best when it comes to getting into the nuances of character and making it authentic.”

The original Rapt, which is inspired by a true story, concerns a corporate chairman who is held for ransom by a gang of criminals. Now, I can’t say that I’ve seen the original Rapt or even Bier’s In A Better World, but I can say this: French thrillers are terrifying, and the Danish are precise. If my calculations are correct, this movie math will work out in our favor. (Deadline)
