According to Variety, Andrew is going to play Carl Sagan in ‘Voyagers’ by Sebastian Lelio. Daisy Edgar-Jones, his co-star on ‘Under the Banner of Heaven’, has also been cast.
Sebastián Lelio, the Oscar-winning auteur behind “A Fantastic Woman,” will direct Andrew Garfield and Daisy Edgar-Jones in “Voyagers,” the story of the romantic relationship between astronomer and “Contact” author Carl Sagan and documentary producer and director Ann Druyan.
“Voyagers” unfolds in 1977 as NASA prepared to launch humanity’s first interstellar probes. A team led by Sagan sets out to create a message to accompany them, known as the Golden Record, which included music and images, for possible alien civilizations. But what starts out as a race-against-the-clock mission blossoms into a love story between Sagan and Druyan.
“Imagine falling madly, truly in love with one of the greatest humans who ever lived, while creating a complex message about what it is to be alive, a golden record affixed to the first interstellar spacecraft launched by our species, bound to sail the Milky Way galaxy long after Earth ceases to exist,” Druyan said. “It takes a movie to bring that mythic experience, that cosmic love story to vivid life. After years of searching, I feel that we have found exactly the right colleagues and artists to capture the magic of it.”
Another possible new project for Andrew has made the news. Deadline reports that Andrew is in talks to star in Guillermo del Toro’s ‘Frankenstein’, though it is unknown at this time who he’d play.
Following his big Animated Feature Oscar win for Pinocchio on Sunday, Guillermo del Toro is getting closer to finding his next live-action film. Sources tell Deadline that Andrew Garfield, Oscar Isaac and Mia Goth are in early talks to star in del Toro’s Frankenstein at Netflix. Del Toro will write and direct the pic.
Insiders close to the pic caution that del Toro is still working on the script and no formal offers have given to any actors. But sources add that he has has met with all three, and each is on board to star.
According to Deadline, Andrew is in talks to star in ‘We Live In Time” alongside Florence Pugh.
After setting the internet on fire Sunday when they presented at the Oscars together, Academy Award nominees Florence Pugh and Andrew Garfield have now found their own project to co-star in. Sources tell Deadline that the two are in negotiations to star in StudioCanal’s We Live In Time. John Crowley is on board to direct, with Nick Payne penning the script. StudioCanal developed the script and will produce with Sunny March.
Plot details are being kept under wraps other then it being described as a funny, deeply moving and immersive love story. Ff deals close, the plan is to shoot later this year.
Variety has published a review of ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’, which confirms something that has been rumored for a long time. Both Andrew and Tobey Maguire are in it as alternate universe versions of Spider-Man.
If villains can make the dimensional leap, it stands to reason that other Spider-Men can too, and sure enough, first Garfield and then Maguire show up seemingly up-to-speed on Peter’s villain infestation problem. Because they’ve all faced variations on the same challenges — from losing loved ones to reconciling their romantic interests with a demanding day job — the movie balances easy-target comedy with more profound life lessons. What could easily have felt like one of those tacky Disneyland parades, where all the princesses are assembled to do fan service, instead finds a strong emotional foundation.
Garfield, so good in this year’s “Tick, Tick… Boom,” radiates more charisma here than he ever did in his two Spider-Man installments. And the older-and-wiser Maguire, who’d gotten soft and lazy between his second and third Spider-Man movies, reminds audiences who haven’t seen him on screen in years why we found him so appealing in the first place. There’s something fundamentally worrisome about dissolving the barriers between these separate iterations of the franchise, and yet, the entire creative team seems committed to treating the multiverse not as a stunt, nor a crass corporate ploy (it does conveniently repair a rift in the MCU), but as an opportunity to more fully explore what Peter Parker stands for.
Andrew has attended even more events related to ‘tick, tick… BOOM’ in the past few days. The most important of those was the GQ Men of the Year party. He also went undercover on the internet for GQ and you can see a video of that below. There’s also a short interview in Netflix Queue along with some new photoshoot images.
The second trailer and first song from ‘Tick, tick… BOOM!’ have been released along with a new poster. You can see the videos below and the poster in the gallery along with some new stills from ‘The Eyes of Tammy Faye’.
Andrew has been busy promoting both ‘Tick, Tick… Boom!’ and ‘The Eyes of Tammy Faye’ recently. First up, he gave an interview to The New York Times accompanied by a new photoshoot which you can see in the gallery. He was also on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. You can see that below. And lastly, some new stills and BTS photos from ‘Tick, Tick… Boom!’ have also been added to the gallery.
Miranda saw Garfield in the 2018 Broadway production of “Angels in America” and thought he was “transcendent” in that show. “I just left thinking, ‘Oh, that guy can do anything,’” the director recalled. “I didn’t know if he could sing, but I just felt like he could do anything. So I cast him in my head probably a year before I talked to him about it.”
Miranda put Garfield through his paces, sending him to a vocal coach and ensuring that the actor would be able to play enough piano so the camera could pan from his fingers to his face throughout the film. But those are just the technical aspects of a performance that is impressively possessed: Garfield plays the passionate, frustrated Larson with enough zealous verve to power all the lights on Broadway.
Ahead of its release on November 19 on Netflix, ‘tick, tick… BOOM!’ will screen at AFI fest, which takes place November 10 – 14. The film will open the festival.
