Jon Bernthal, Christopher Abbott, Imogen Poots, Rosemarie DeWitt and Odessa Young have signed on for director Jamie Dagg’s upcoming thriller Sweet Virginia, which was a Black List script written by Ben and Paul China. XYZ Films is handling international sales on the film (and others) at the upcoming Toronto Film Festival.
Sweet Virginia follows a motel owner with a dark past (Bernthal) who unknowingly starts a rapport with a young hitman (Abbott) responsible for a spate of violence that suddenly has gripped a small town. The film is set to begin production August 27.
The film will be produced by Brian Kavanaugh-Jones for Automatik, Chris Ferguson for Oddfellows Entertainment and Fernando Loureiro and Roberto Vasconcellos for Exhibit (which is also financing). Executive producers are Rian Cahill and Jesse Savath, with XYZ Films also executive producing.
Imogen attended last night the celebration of Marc Jacob’s Divine Decadence, and i’ve added to the gallery photos from the event. Check it out bellow!
Imogen was at The Late Late Show with James Corden last night, along with Chris Pine! She was at the talk show to promote her new show, Roadies, and you can watch two clips from the interview bellow!
Imogen Poots and her Roadies co-star Carla Gogino are on the August issue of InStyle USA, looking very gorgeous. Thanks to Amanda, from www.hayley-atwell.net, i have added to the gallery outtakes and scans from the issue!
Officially debuting this Sunday — though you can watch it now on Showtime’s website — the new Showtime series Roadies takes a look at life on the road for a rock tour – but instead of centering on the band, their fame and all the other usual trappings, the focus here is on the crew and what it’s like making sure everything goes right, night after night, city after city.
Among an ensemble that includes Luke Wilson (Old School), Carla Gugino (Sin City) and Keisha Castle-Hughes (Game of Thrones),Imogen Poots (Green Room) stars as Kelly Ann, one of the youngest members of the crew – who we meet when she is in the midst of a lot of doubt about whether this is still the life for her.
I spoke to Poots about her role on the series and working with Cameron Crowe (Almost Famous), who created the series and executive produces alongside Winnie Holzman (My So-Called Life) and J.J. Abrams. We also chatted about her getting her start in 28 Weeks Later, alongside actors like Robert Carlyle, Jeremy Renner, Idris Elba and Rose Byrne and her other current role in The Lonely Island movie, Popstar, where she plays Andy Samberg’s girlfriend.
IGN: I feel Cameron Crowe is one of those people that as an actor you probably automatically go, “I want to work with him.”
Poots: I was really excited by the fact that it was Cameron and [about] music, because he’s the master of understanding human story within a very kinetic, confusing, ever-changing world of the music industry. I knew the story was going to come from a place that was based on experiences and stories he’s heard, because Cameron hears everything. He listens and he documents it. That’s what I was so exhilarated by was certainly hearing that and the role itself.
