TAIKA WAITITI’S “JOJO RABBIT” Has Begun Production Starring Sam Rockwell & Scarlett Johansson

Fox Searchlight Pictures announced today that principal photography on JOJO RABBIT has begun in and around Prague, Czech Republic. The film is written and directed by Taika Waititi (HUNT FOR THE WILDERPEOPLE, THOR: RAGNAROK) and stars Golden Globe® nominated Scarlett Johansson (AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR, LOST IN TRANSLATION), Academy Award® winner Sam Rockwell (THREE BILLBOARDS OUTSIDE EBBING, MISSOURI, SEVEN PSYCHOPATHS), Rebel Wilson (PITCH PERFECT, BRIDESMAIDS), Thomasin McKenzie (THE HOBBIT: THE BATTLE OF THE FIVE ARMIES, LEAVE NO TRACE), and introducing Roman Griffin Davis as Jojo. The film’s producers are Waititi, Carthew Neal (HUNT FOR THE WILDERPEOPLE) and Chelsea Winstanley (WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS) with Kevan Van Thompson (THE ZOOKEEPER’S WIFE) serving as executive producer.

“I’m stoked to begin shooting my anti-war satire. We’ve assembled an incredible cast and I couldn’t be more excited to finally ridicule Nazis and their beliefs. This film is going to piss off a lot of racists and that makes me very happy,” said Waititi.

“Taika is a master at bringing honesty and humanity to the surface in any story, all while allowing us to laugh. We could not be more thrilled to join him in the remarkable journey of Jojo Rabbit,” said Presidents of Production Matthew Greenfield and David Greenbaum.

In JOJO RABBIT, writer director Taika Waititi (THOR: RAGNAROK, HUNT FOR THE WILDERPEOPLE), brings his signature style of humor and pathos to a World War II satire. The story follows an awkward young German boy (Roman Griffin) raised by a single mother (Scarlett Johansson), and whose only ally is his imaginary friend Hitler (Waititi). His naïve patriotism is tested when he meets a young girl (Thomasin McKenzie) who upends his world views, forcing him to face his biggest fears.

Joining Waititi on the film is director of photography Mihai Malaimare Jr. (THE MASTER), production designer Ra Vincent (THOR: RAGNAROK), editor Tom Eagles (HUNT FOR THE WILDERPEOPLE), costume designer Mayes Rubeo (THOR: RAGNAROK) and make-up and hair designer Dannelle Satherley (HUNT FOR THE WILDERPEOPLE).

The film will be overseen by Presidents of Production David Greenbaum and Matthew Greenfield, SVP of Production DanTram Nguyen and VP of Production Taylor Friedman.

Subject-Swiss Army Man
Name & mailing address

Outrageously fun and deeply affecting, Swiss Army Man is a gonzo buddy comedy that is the feature film debut of acclaimed music video directors Daniel Scheinert and Daniel Kwan (collectively known as DANIELS, and responsible for the visionary “Turn Down For What” video, among many others). Bursting with limitless creativity in both form and content, Swiss Army Man goes from the absurd to the emotional to the whimsical to the profound and back again.

Hank (Paul Dano) is stranded on a deserted island, having given up all hope of ever making it home again. But one day everything changes when a corpse named Manny (Daniel Radcliffe) washes up on shore; the two become fast friends…

Movie Review: #MissSloane

The political drama Miss Sloane fails to lobby us into Oscar territory.
Review by Matt Cummings
In a time when women were supposed to be leading our country, Miss Sloane arrives to remind us of what could have been. Unfortunately, this message about a headstrong female Washington lobbyist loses us early with an unappealing director, a paper-thin plot, and suffers from a ton of convenient realism. If the good (but not impressive) performances weren't there to buffer these and many other gaps, we might have found ourselves voting for impeachment.

For Washington lobbyist Elizabeth Sloane (Jessica Chastain), life is about getting her clients what they want from the halls of Congress. Her boss Dupont (Sam Waterston) will sleep with NRA types, fudge travel records, and bully smaller firms into submission if it means a hearty paycheck at day's end. But when Sloane leaves the company to push Gun Control legislation with one of those smaller firms, Dupont turns to his bulldog Co…
