FilmNation Entertainment has announced that Academy Award winner Colin Firth (The King’s Speech) and Michael Fassbender (Prometheus, Shame) will star in Genius. Based on an inspirational true story, Genius is written by three-time Academy Award nominee and Golden Globe winner John Logan (The Aviator, Gladiator, Hugo, Skyfall), and will be directed by Michael Grandage, who recently served as the Artistic Director of London’s famed theatre the Donmar Warehouse. FilmNation will commence international sales on Genius starting at AFM. CAA will arrange the financing and represent the film’s North American distribution rights. Principal photography is scheduled to start early in 2014.
Genius will be produced by James Bierman for the Michael Grandage Company (MGC) . Bierman served as Executive Producer at Donmar and co-formed MGC with Grandage. MGC will also be producing Logan’s new play “Peter and Alice,” to be directed by Grandage, as part of their season of plays in London in Spring 2013.
The full length trailer of “Gambit” has been released! Starring Colin Firth, Cameron Diaz, Alan Rickman, and Stanley Tucci, this looks like a really fun movie.
Happy Birthday Mr. Firth! Hope you have a special day with your loving friends and family; we wish you the best!

‘One man has the power to stop the loggers: Brazil’s Minister of Justice. But it’s just not his priority. Let’s push it up his list.’ — Colin Firth
Oscar-winning film star Colin Firth today launched a major Survival International campaign to save ‘Earth’s most threatened tribe’ – the Awá of the Brazilian Amazon.
The centerpiece of the campaign is a short film, featuring an appeal by Colin Firth and music by Grammy-winning composer Heitor Pereira.
The Awá are a small tribe whose territory has been invaded by a vast army of illegal loggers, ranchers and settlers. Astonishing graphics on the campaign website show the devastating destruction of the Indians’ forest – which is happening faster than any other Amazon tribe.

Nicole Kidman has been cast as Colin Firth’s wife in ‘The Railway Man,’ replacing Rachel Weisz in the role.
Weisz was forced to drop out of the project because she’s required to do additional shooting on ‘The Bourne Legacy’ and ‘Oz: The Great and Powerful.’
‘The Railway Man,’ directed by Jonathan Teplitzy, is in pre-production to start shooting in April. A U.K.-Australian co-production backed by Lionsgate Intl., it’s based on Eric Lomax’s autobiography about his horrific experiences as a Japanese prisoner in World War II, and his remarkable reconciliation with one of his captors 30 years later.
