Though he’s produced a few projects in the time since he made 2007’s I’m Not There, we haven’t seen a film directed by Todd Haynes for a while now. But according to Screen Daily, he’s back with Carol, and he’s bringing Cate Blanchett and Mia Wasikowska with him.
Empire Videblogisode regular Stephen Woolley is producing the new film, which adapts Patricia Highsmith’s novel The Price Of Salt.
Carol will chart a relationship between two women in 1950s New York – a girl in her 20s slogging through a job in a department store (Wasikowska) and a wife trapped in a loveless, unfulfilling, but wealthy marriage (Blanchett).
Phyllis Nagy is at work writing the script, which has producer Elizabeth Karlsen excited. “Todd is without a doubt one of the most talented directors working today," she says in a statement. "His attachment to direct this script and cast is a dream come true."
Blanchett, last seen in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, turned director for Australian shorts compilation The Turning and will next be seen in Terrence Malick’s next two movies, Woody Allen’s Blue Jasmine and the second Hobbit film. She’s currently working on George Clooney’s The Monuments Men. Wasikowska was one of Stoker’s leads and will show up in Richard Ayoade’s The Double and Jim Jarmusch’s Only Lovers Left Alive alongside that actor we always mention. Old wotsisname... Thomas Middleditch? No... Tamany Hall? Nah... Tom Hiddleston! That's the one.
Canadian comedy Starbuck was a huge hit in its native land, so naturally the rights were grabbed. To avoid any confusion with excited Battlestar Galactica fans, the name was changed to Delivery Man. The first trailer for the film is lurking below.
Vince Vaughn stars as David Wozniak, who discovers that, through a sperm donation snafu back in the 1990s, he’s now the father of several children. 533 children to be exact, and now they’ve formed a group and are suing to discover his true identity. Naturally, Dave’s not too thrilled.
As the pressure rises, Dave has to decide whether he’ll stay anonymous or face the multiple kiddie music. And, as we see in the teaser, his lawyer/mate (played by Chris Pratt) isn’t much help.
With the original film’s writer director Ken Scott once more pulling double duty and Cobie Smulders, Britt Roberson, Jack Reynor and Bobby Moynihan aboard, Delivery Man is set to arrive in the UK on October 11. Fingers crossed it’s as chucklesome as the Canadian version…
