Happy Birthday, Freya Mavor! (born 13 August 1993)
Jack Thorne is back for This is England !
Jack Thorne’s Barbarian’s is now called Barbarians The last of the Pink Panthers. It will be directed by French director Romain Gavras and will star Sarah Morton and Tahar Rahim.
The Barbarians is a co production between the French channel Canal + and the British channel Sky Atlantic.
The bi-lingual drama (6 episodes of 60 minutes each) is based on the true story of an international crime gang that emerged from the former Yugoslavia after the Balkan war. The gang, which was known as the Pink Panthers and included former Serbian soldiers, robbed luxury boutiques across Europe and was involved in weapons and drug trafficking.
Each episode will follow a heist in a glamorous location, such as Monaco or Dubai, and will centre on three characters: a gang member, a female British loss-adjuster embroiled in the dodgy jewellery trade and a French policeman.
This will be Sky’s second French co-production (with Canal +) after The Tunnel .
It is produced by Warp Films (This is England 86 & 88, Channel 4’s drama Southcliffe with Kaya Scodelario and Joe Dempsie) and Haut et Court (the production company behind the awesome French zombie drama Les revenants ).
It’s my second week in London and one of my coworkers is the French hotter version of Alex Arnold with blue eyes. Too bad he’s leaving soon.
Some lucky people got the chance to see Unbroken and they are saying the movie is a strong Oscar contender ( likely Best actor , best supporting actor , best director and best picture ) .
US premiere of 71 at the New York film festival
Happy Birthday Freya Mavor!
