Another new project for Andrew

Fresh off the news that Andrew will star in ‘Instrumental’, Variety reports that Andrew is set to star in yet another project.

Jessica Chastain and Andrew Garfield are on board to star in the Fox Searchlight biopic “The Eyes of Tammy Faye” with “The Big Sick” director Michael Showalter on board to helm.

Based on the documentary “The Eyes of Tammy Faye,” directed by Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato from World of Wonder, the film tells the extraordinary and outlandish rise, fall and redemption of televangelists Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker, played by Garfield and Chastain. In the 1970s and ’80s, Tammy Faye and Jim rose from humble beginnings to create the world’s largest religious broadcasting network and a theme park, and were revered for their message of love, acceptance and prosperity. Tammy Faye was legendary for her indelible eyelashes, her idiosyncratic singing, and her eagerness to embrace people from all walks of life. However, it wasn’t long before financial improprieties, scheming rivals, and sexual scandal tore their marriage apart and toppled their carefully constructed empire.

Andrew to star in ‘Instrumental’

According to Deadline, Andrew is set to star in a drama called ‘Instrumental’.

Hacksaw Ridge star Andrew Garfield is teaming up with Oscar-winner James Marsh (The Theory Of Everything) for drama biopic Instrumental, which is due to get underway in the UK later this year.

[…]

Based on internationally acclaimed concert pianist James Rhodes’ bestselling memoir, the project is being produced by Debra Hayward (Les Misérables) and Alison Owen’s (Suffragette) Monumental Pictures. Garfield will star as Rhodes.

[…]

Rhodes’ memoir reveals how music saved his life after he suffered sexual abuse as a pupil at his all-boys junior school. The pianist prodigy suffered mentally as well as physically, including spinal damage, eating disorders and PTSD, while his abuser died before he could appear in court. Monumental previously beat out U.S. and UK companies for rights to the story.

Final movie update

Since things are quiet at the moment, I decided to add images from the movies the gallery was still missing. So you can see stills, caps, posters and behind the scenes images from ’99 Homes’, the critcially acclaimed ‘Hacksaw Ridge’ (for which Andrew received an Oscar nomination) and ‘Silence’ and ‘Breathe’. So the gallery is as complete and up to date as it can be. Enjoy!

Shorts update

The year is ending, and as the last post of the year, I have added all the short movie related images to the gallery. From ‘Mumbo Jumbo’, Andrew’s first ever film appearance, to Arcade Fire’s ‘We Exist’ music video. So do check them all out.

This year was quite good for Andrew, with ‘Angels In America’ coming to Broadway and him winning a Tony award for his portrayal of Prior Walter. But there was frustrating news as well, with ‘Under the Silver Lake’ being pushed back from June to December and then again to next year. But at least we have something to look forward to with both that movie and Andrew’s new project ‘Mainstream’. So see you all next year.

Andrew set to star in ‘Mainstream’

Andrew has been cast in a new role. According to Deadline, Gia Coppola has cast him in her new movie ‘Mainstream’.

After making her directorial debut on Palo Alto, Gia Coppola is set to direct and co-write Mainstream as her followup. Andrew Garfield, Maya Hawke, Nat Wolff and Jason Schwartzman have been set to star in an eccentric love triangle and cautionary tale of preserving your identity within the fast-moving internet age. Coppola wrote the script with Tom Stuart, with filming to get underway at year’s end.

‘Under the Silver Lake’ pushed back again

According to IndieWire, ‘Under the Silver Lake’ has sadly been pushed back yet again. This time to April 19, 2019.

After critics were split on the irreverent movie following its Cannes premiere, A24 made the decision to move “Under the Silver Lake” out of its high-profile summer release date to December 7. Now, IndieWire has exclusively learned, the movie has been pushed out of the 2018 calendar entirely and will instead open in the safer corridor of April 19, 2019.

This decision will give the movie “the best possible chance in the marketplace,” according to a representative at Cinetic Marketing, which is working on the film. (A24 declined to comment.) The decision ensures that “Under the Silver Lake” won’t have to compete with this year’s dense fall movie season, and takes it out of awards season conversations where it never had a realistic shot of gaining any momentum. It also leaves open the possibility that the movie could relaunch at a more supportive American festival, such as Sundance in January, SXSW in March, or Tribeca in April.

Movies update

While we’re still waiting for ‘Under the Silver Lake’ promo to start, I have updated the gallery with stills, behind the scenes images, posters and screencaptures from four of Andrew’s movies, codenamed ‘Claim to Fame’. So you can find all the aforementioned things for ‘Never Let Me Go’, ‘The Social Network’ and both ‘Amazing Spider-Man’ films. Enjoy!

‘Under the Silver Lake’ release date pushed back

According to Collider, ‘Under the Silver Lake’ has been pushed back to December 7. It was originally set to release this month.

In more bummer release date news, A24 has decided to push back the release of It Follows filmmaker David Robert Mitchell’s highly anticipated follow-up Under the Silver Lake by six months. The film was set to hit theaters in just a few weeks, on June 22nd, but it will now bow on December 7th. It’s unclear exactly what led to the release date change, but the film’s Cannes Film Festival debut may hold the key.

[…]

As for the box office prospects, December may be a bit of a tougher month to crack given all the awards fare, but then again perhaps Andrew Garfield might break into the Best Actor race.

‘Under the Silver Lake’ clips + reviews and New Dramatist’s Spring Luncheon

‘Under the Silver Lake’ screened at Cannes yesterday and several film reviews have surfaced from The Hollywood Reporter, Variety, IndieWire and others. You can read some excerpts below. A couple of new clips from the film have also been released and you can see them here or below. Andrew also attended yet another event yesterday. This time the New Dramatist’s Spring Luncheon. You can see images from that in the gallery.


Like Mitchell’s two other features, “Under the Silver Lake” transforms a familiar genre into a unique context, in this case channeling the shaggy-dog detective story into the ambivalence of a millennial who keeps losing the narrative thread of his own life. The movie personifies the male gaze, but it’s also conspicuously about that, deconstructing privilege more than lingering in its confines. It’s a bizarre and outrageous drama grounded in the consistency of Garfield’s astonishment at every turn.

[…]

I’ve long thought that Andrew Garfield would be the perfect actor to star in a biopic of Anthony Perkins, and in the early scenes of “Under the Silver Lake” he’s got a Norman Bates twitchiness about him. Covered in unkempt shaggy hair (very ’70s), he seems slightly out of it, lost in a sensual daze, and since one of the film’s motifs is that there’s a serial killer of canines on the loose (that’s right: someone is slashing dogs in L.A.), we wonder, for a while, if it could be him, especially when he gets on the phone with his mother, who starts yammering on about the glories of Janet Gaynor.

[…]

But it’s Garfield, gamely straddling the bridge between seedy slacker and driven truth-seeker, who anchors every scene and will represent A24’s best shot at drawing an audience with the early summer release. Seen back to back with the actor’s fearless emotional deep dive in the current Broadway revival of Angels in America, this film again shows Garfield in magnetic form, shaking off his somewhat earnest nice-guy persona to explore a darker, looser, more unknowable side. Mitchell even inserts sneaky nods to his star’s Spider-Man past, though he’s traded great power and responsibility for a porn stash, a Peeping Tom habit and a shower of skunk spray.
