“Diary of a Teenage Girl” predicted for Sundance 2015.

use

Alexander Skarsgard filmed his role in “Dairy of a Teenage Girl” at the beginning of 2014, and fans are now impatiently waiting for the release date. There are some possible good vibes on the horizon as Eric Lavallée, editor-in-chief and film critic at IONCINEMA, is predicting that the movie may make its debut at the Sundance Film Festival, which takes place in Park City, Utah, from January 22 to February 1 2015.

We’d be hard pressed to find more of an enraptured superfan of Phoebe Gloeckner’s graphic novel than Marielle Heller. The actress adapted Diary of a Teenage Girl into a stageplay, played the lead, and at the end of the playhouse run figured she wasn’t done with the material. 2012 was a pivotal bloom year for the adaptation, with Heller landing all encompassing support  from the Sundance Institute folks with a quartet of workshoppy goodness: Creative Producing Summit, June Screenwriters Lab, Directors Lab and Screenplay Reading Series. Production took place in San Francisco this past January, with the love triangle roles being distributed to Alexander Skarsgard, Kristen Wiig, and newbie Bel Powley in the title role. Set in the Farrah Fawcett pin-up era, this potentially thorny The Ice Storm-esque drama pits irresponsible adults with grown up teenagers and should be a highly sought after acquisitions title …. especially if Wiig nabs a Supporting Actress nom for The Skeleton Twins at the Indie Spirits later this month.

Gist: Based on Phoebe Gloeckner’s graphic novel of the same name, this follows a teen artist (Powley) living in San Francisco in the ’70s who attempts to navigate her way through an affair with her mother’s boyfriend.

Production Co./Producers: Cold Iron Pictures’ Miranda Bailey (Super), Archer Gray’s Anne Carey (Little Accidents), Caviar’s Bert Hamelinck (Nymphomaniac: Vol. I & II) and Madeline Samit.

Prediction: U.S. Dramatic Competition most logical route.

U.S. Distributor: Rights Available. UTA (domestic). K5 International (international)

Skarsgard: I cook some stew or Beef bourguignon, the main point is: Hearty! I love to cook and to invite my Friends. In my Family were cooking, collaborative Meals and a good glass of Wine really important Part of our lives. I’m glad, that I have such a good metabolism.

Alexander Skarsgard Confirmed for The East

20110809alextelferphotoshoot

Alexander Skarsgard has finally confirmed that he will be in the film titled “The East”.

[box] Ellen Page is in final talks to join “The East,” the indie eco-terrorism thriller that stars Brit Marling and Alexander Skarsgard. Skarsgard plays the leader of a eco-terrorist group, and Marling is a law enforcement agent who infiltrates the organization. Page plays Skarsgard’s ex and fellow eco-terrorist, who bristles when Skarsgard and Marling fall for one another. Who wants to bet she’s the really bad egg of the tale?[/box]

SOURCE:

Variety.com reports:

[box] According to Variety, ‘The East’ centers around “a private contracting firm tasked with protecting big corporations from radical environmentalists and anti-business extremist, with its agents task with infiltrating a mysterious anarchist Organization, known only as The East. Ellen Page is slated to play an East member who is green with envy over Alexander Skarsgard (True Blood), leader of The East, and Brit Marling’s (Another Earth) onscreen romance. Marling will be playing an undercover agent. If the ‘Inception’ actress signs on she would be replacing Felicity Jones, who was previously scheduled to take on the role, but she couldn’t commit due to scheduling conflicts with her attachment to the movie ‘Like Crazy’.

A story centered on a woman who infiltrates an anarchist group.
