Fox Searchlight Pictures Acquires "JACKIE" - Opening In Select Theaters On December 9

Fox Searchlight Pictures Presidents Nancy Utley and Stephen Gilula announced today that the company has acquired US rights to JACKIE, directed by Pablo Larraín (NO; NERUDA) and written by Noah Oppenheim, from LD Entertainment. The film stars Academy Award winner Natalie Portman, Greta Gerwig, Billy Crudup, Academy Award nominee John Hurt, and Peter Sarsgaard.

JACKIE is produced by Juan De Dios Larraín, Darren Aronofsky, Mickey Liddell, Scott Franklin, and Ari Handel. The filmmaking team includes cinematographer Stéphane Fontaine (RUST AND BONE), editor Sebastián Sepúlveda (THE CLUB), production designer Jean Rabasse (THE DREAMERS), costume designer Madeline Fontaine (AMELIE) and music by Mica Levi (UNDER THE SKIN). The film is scheduled to open on December 9, 2016. Oppenheim’s original script won Best Screenplay at this year’s Venice International Film Festival.

“Pablo Larraín’s ‘Jackie’ is a daring, one-of-a-kind cinematic portrayal of a beloved icon. Led by an indelible performance from Natalie Portman and supported by a richly talented ensemble of
actors and artists, the film is one we are thrilled to bring to audiences later this year,” said Gilula and Utley.

“I am delighted that Fox Searchlight will be releasing ‘Jackie’,” said Larraín. “Their movies have been an important influence on me as a filmmaker, and it is a personal achievement for me to have them bring this very special story of a beautiful, sophisticated and mysterious woman to the world. Jackie was the most unknown of the known women of the 20th century.” Larraín previously directed the acclaimed film NO, which was nominated for Best Foreign Language Film on behalf of Chile at the 2013 Academy Awards.

“LD Entertainment, Protozoa Pictures and Fabula are proud to collaborate with Fox Searchlight Pictures in bringing Pablo's English-language debut feature to stateside audiences,” said the film’s producers in a joint statement.
JACKIE is a searing and intimate portrait of one of the most important and tragic moments in American history, seen through the eyes of the iconic First Lady, then Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy (Natalie Portman). JACKIE places us in her world during the days immediately following her husband's assassination. Known for her extraordinary dignity and poise, here we see a psychological portrait of the First Lady as she struggles to maintain her husband’s legacy and the world of "Camelot" that they created and loved so well.

The deal was brokered by Fox Searchlight’s Executive Vice President of Business Affairs Megan O’Brien and Senior Vice President of Acquisitions & Co-Productions Ray Strache, and CAA, which also packaged and arranged the film’s financing, and Mickey Liddell on behalf of LD Entertainment. Pablo Larraín and Noah Oppenheim are represented by CAA and Management 360. Natalie Portman is represented by CAA.
Fox Searchlight Pictures is a specialty film company that both finances and acquires motion pictures. It has its own marketing and distribution operations, and its films are distributed internationally by Twentieth Century Fox. Fox Searchlight Pictures is a unit of 21st Century Fox.

Morbius: The Living Vampire Film In The Works

The Spider spin-offs keep on coming! With Venom now shooting, an even more obscure character from the web-slinger's extensive comicbook past has now been unearthed, with plans for a movie. Power Rangers writing duo Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless are in talks to craft the script for Morbius: The Living Vampire.

Sony is pushing ahead with another potential Spider-movie, which, like Venom, is unlikely to be linked to the MCU. What it will boast, however, is the story of Michael Morbius, a Nobel Prize-winning biochemist who tries to cure a rare blood disease using an experimental treatment that combines electroshock therapy and vampire bats. The results are predictably catastrophic, and he's transformed into... well, the title should be a clue. He has some of the traditional vampiric qualities – he ingests blood to live, and conversely is not fond of bright light. He can fly, has superhuman strength and healing capabilities. When he bites victims and drinks their blood, his attac…

Enter For A Chance To Win Passes To See DARKEST HOUR on December 5th at 7:00 PM in Dallas

During the early days of World War II, with the fall of France imminent, Britain faces its darkest hour as the threat of invasion looms. As the seemingly unstoppable Nazi forces advance, and with the Allied army cornered on the beaches of Dunkirk, the fate of Western Europe hangs on the leadership of the newly-appointed British Prime Minister Winston Churchill (Academy Award nominee Gary Oldman). While maneuvering around his political rivals, he must confront the ultimate choice: negotiate with Hitler and save the British people at a terrible cost or rally the nation and fight on against incredible odds. Directed by Joe Wright, DARKEST HOUR is the dramatic and inspiring story of four weeks in 1940 during which Churchill’s courage to lead changed the course of world history.
