Listen To The Chemical Brothers’ Soundtrack For ‘Hanna’

For anyone interested in Soundtrack , like myself 🙂 – The Hanna soundtrack will be available for purchase on iTunes this Tuesday, while the film is due April 8.

The Chemical Brothers are getting into the celebrity-composer act, which has become increasingly popular thanks to high sales of Daft Punk’s awesome soundtrack for TRON: Legacy and Trent Reznor’s equally awesome, Oscar-winning score for The Social Network. Now the recent Grammy nominees have put the entire score for Hanna up on Myspace for fans to listen to — and, in addition to some appropriately moody cinematic stuff, there are also plenty of reminders that this was composed by guys who will be owning Coachella this year. Head over to Myspace for a listen or watch the Hanna trailer (featuring the track “Container Park”) below.

Blanchett will Bring UNCLE VANYA to Kennedy Center in August

Awesome news! – thanks Maria for the headups.

Sydney Theatre Company’s acclaimed production of Uncle Vanya by Anton Chekhov, adapted by Andrew Upton and directed by Tamás Ascher, will tour to the Kennedy Center in Washington, USA, with performances from 4 to 24 August 2011.

The entire original cast – John Bell, Cate Blanchett, Sandy Gore, Hayley McElhinney, Anthony Phelan, Richard Roxburgh, Andrew Tighe, Jacki Weaver and Hugo Weaving – will reprise their roles for the production which was a critical and box office triumph at Sydney Theatre in November and December 2010.

More than 47,300 people saw the play during its Sydney run with every performance completely sold out. The production received exceptional reviews, described as “gloriously fresh, funny and poignant” (John McCallum, The Australian), “a magnificently mounted and playful production” (Elissa Blake, Sun Herald) and “a triumph” (Alex Lalak, Daily Telegraph). “This enthralling production surprises and delights, and leaves you feeling profoundly moved” said Jo Litson in the Sunday Telegraph and “across the board the performances are exceptional” wrote Jason Blake in the Sydney Morning Herald.

Sydney Theatre Company’s last engagement at the Kennedy Center was in 2009 with A Streetcar Named Desire, which was subsequently awarded three prestigious Helen Hayes Awards including for Outstanding Non-Resident Production.

Cate Blanchett Calls For Improvements In Sydney

Cate Blanchett is urging authorities in Sydney, Australia to redevelop the streets around her theatre company to transform the area into a vibrant cultural centre.

The Australian actress and her husband, screenwriter Andrew Upton, work as co-artistic directors of the Sydney Theatre Company, which is based in the city’s Walsh Bay.

The Oscar-winner has helped improve the theatre by installing an eco-friendly power system and now she is urging local authorities to follow her lead by revitalising the surrounding area, according to the Aap.

She stood up in front of a massive crowd at Sydney Town Hall on Tuesday (08Mar11) to call for improvements, telling the audience, “It’s hard to believe Sydney Theatre Company was once a solitary outpost of the arts in Walsh Bay. Now, with so many artists and companies already resident and more on the way, the development and enhancement of this growing precinct can be a great economic driver with boundless potential to assist in positioning Sydney as a multi-dimensional global city… (The area needs improved transport), revitalised nooks and crannies (and places for people to) linger and soak up the atmosphere.”

Cate Blanchett Drop Out of ‘While We’re Young’

There is still time to find the replacements.

JustJared.com reported actors James Franco and Cate Blanchett dropped out of “While We’re Young” film before it starts filming in mid-June in New York City.

Franco dropped out due to the scheduling conflict with Sam Raimi’s “Oz: The Great and Powerful,” in which he plays the lead role.

Blanchett pulled out of the project after Franco’s departure, but it is not known for what reason. Maybe it has something to do with the production of “The Hobbit” films?

Comedian-actor Ben Stiller is still attached to the project despite these departures.

The film is about a free-spirited Booklynite twenty-something couple who inspires an uptight documentarian and his wife to loosen up – with comedic consequences.

Director Noah Baumbach will helm the project. Baumbach and Stiller worked together previously in “Greenberg.”

Baumbach has a unique comedic approach towards his movies. The writer-director has a long list of movies in his filmography including “Kicking and Screaming,” “Highball,” “Mr. Jealousy,” “The Squid and the Whale,” “Margot at the Wedding,” and “Greenberg.”

He also wrote the script for “While We’re Young.” His long-time film collaborator Scott Rudin (“Greenberg, “Fantastic Mr. Fox”) will be producing the project and Focus Features will handle the distribution.

Greta Gerwig was previously set to play the young wife, but she left earlier from the project due to scheduling issues.

So with three out of four departed from the project—hopefully they could still save this film. Time for a casting call for new actors!
