Stalked:Chase,Jayne Eyre,James McTeigue
David Chase is to direct his first feature film.
Some people are none too please with Ellen Page's new role.
James McTeigue has agreed to direct Revolution.
The Sopranos creator David Chase is to direct his first feature film. It will be for Paramount studio but details are thin on the ground. It will not be a Mafia movie though, and no Sopranos film is part of the deal. News comes from Variety.
No one is doubting Ellen Page's acting abilities, but why a BBC movie of Jane Eyre couldn't have a British actress in the lead is pretty hard to stomach. It's not as if we don't have enough talented young actresses here who could play the role.
In it's defence the BBC say that the supporting roles will be filled by British actors, and that there shouldn't be concerns about an American actress playing such a role. Hey if Gwyneth Paltrow can do it.
