Roth Cast in Funny Role     

Tim Roth is set to star alongside Naomi Watts in the English-language remake of German director Michael Haneke's film Funny Games (also to be directed by Haneke).

Variety reports that Roth will play a father and husband who tries to protect his family after two psychos invade their cabin during a vacation.

Roth has been very busy lately. He’s already completed the Francis Ford Coppola-directed Youth Without Youth and Tsunami: The Aftermath for HBO. Right now, he’s shooting the Wong Kar Wai film My Blueberry Nights in New York, with an impressive list of co-stars including Jude Law, Natalie Portman, Rachel Weisz and Norah Jones (yes, that Norah Jones). Funny Games begins production in September.

I just saw the original version of this (along with Code Unknown and Time of the Wolf), and it was brilliant and sickening on both the sensational and moral levels. I don't know if I could ever stand to watch it again, but as a very enthusiastic fan of both Watts and Haneke, I will HAVE to see the remake. I'm wondering what, if any, changes will be made. It seems inconceivable to me that it will be a shot-for-shot remake, but that would be a real artistic coup for Haneke.

""Money doesn't come into it. It never has. I do what I do because it's all that I am." - Morrissey

"Lacan stressed more and more in his work the power and organizing principle of the symbolic, understood as the networks, social, cultural, and linguistic, into which a child is born. These precede the birth of a child, which is why Lacan can say that language is there from before the actual moment of birth. It is there in the social structures which are at play in the family and, of course, in the ideals, goals, and histories of the parents. This world of language can hardly be grasped by the newborn and yet it will act on the whole of the child's existence."

Haneke lines up 'Teacher's Tale'
Bruhl to star in 'Metamorphosis'
Source: Variety
 
COLOGNE — Austrian director Michael Haneke, who has just wrapped the U.S. remake of his thriller "Funny Games," has started to prep his next project, "The White Tape or the Teacher's Tale."

German shingle X-Filme Creative Pool and France's Les Films du Losange are on board as co-producers.

Pic, to be set in a Northern German village before World War I, has received $400,000 production support from the French-German Film Funding Commission.

X-Filme is also backing a drama helmed by actress Nicolette Krebitz, "The Heart is a Dark Forest," about a woman who finds out that her husband is leading a double life.

Pic features this year's Silver Berlin Bear winner Nina Hoss ("Yella"), along with Monika Bleibtreu and Otto Sander, and is produced by Tom Tykwer.

It has received financial support from funding bodies FF Hamburg and Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg.

In other production news, Mark Damon's shingle Foresight Unlimited has announced that thesp Daniel Bruhl ("Goodbye, Lenin!") will star in a new adaptation of Franz Kafka's "Metamorphosis," the classic spooky novelette about a man who turns into an insect.

Pic will also star Stephen Rea and Anna Paquin.

The production will be the directorial debut of Limor Diamant, the producer of "FeardotCom," and has a reported budget of $9 million.

Haneke takes Eurimages cash
Angelopoulos, Noe pics also funded
Source: Variety
 
Projects from Gaspar Noe, Theo Angelopoulos and Michael Haneke are among those selected for production support from pan-European funding org Eurimages, which handed out E4.4 million ($6.3 million) to 11 international co-productions in its October sesh.

The largest single amount, $1 million, went to Haneke’s German-language drama “The White Tape or the Teacher’s Tale,” which is set at the beginning of the 20th century.

Angelopoulos received $930,000 for “Dust of Time,” the second part of his trilogy about the Greek experience in the 20th century that kicked off with “The Weeping Meadow.” Pic stars Harvey Keitel, William Hurt, Bruno Ganz and Valeria Golina.

Haneke’s and Angelopoulos’ pics have already been promised coin from the German-French Funding Commission and Filmstiftung NRW, respectively.

An additional $930,000 in Eurimages coin went to French helmer Marina de Van for “Ne te retourne pas,” a psychodrama about a photographer whose pictures tell a story different than the one she perceives.

The next pic from “Irreversible” helmer Noe will be another psycho trip bordering on the fantastic that will again play with the chronology.

“Enter the Void” deals with the five minutes prior to a man’s death and the period thereafter.

Eurimages also is supporting “Applesinpiken” (The Orange Girl), from Norway’s Eva Dahr, based on a story by “Sophie’s World” author Jostein Gaarder.

How awful is his American remake of Funny Games? I've heard scathing things. It's a shot for shot remake, right?

Also, has anyone seen The White Ribbon yet?

Oh, no! It's the worst?

I still think he has one of the most intriguing filmographies.

I saw The White Ribbon.

I still feel like he's A More Expensive Version of Lars Von Trier, but I haven't seen Antichrist yet.
Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

This guy is at the top of his game right now. I do see the connection with Von Trier. Although Haneke's language and storytelling is interested in formalism. Von Trier is much more experimental. LVT works in the spirit of Dreyer and Hanake works in the spirit of Bresson. In their own way of course. However Dreyer and Bresson are still way beyond.

Thanks for that, but I ended up wasting my day jumping from one roundtable to another.

La Master class de Michael Haneke from last October. French only.

Also, there's a pretty good interview with Darius Khondji about Amour in the latest issue of American Cinematographer. He mentions that the majority of the movie was shot at a 35mm focal length, discusses convincing Haneke to shoot digitally for the first time (which Haneke says he hated in one of the DP/30 interviews above), the problems that ensued, etc. It's a decent read.
