Power Women Go Head-to-Head in Lead Actress Oscar Race

Power Women Go Head-to-Head in Lead Actress Oscar Race
The roles in the lead actress category run a wide range, from the precocious 6-year-old Brooklyn Prince in “The Florida Project” to 82-year-old Judi Dench playing the queen (again) in “Victoria & Abdul.” Other powerful women include previous nominees Jessica Chastain as a poker queen in “Molly’s Game,” Kate Winslet as a cheating wife in “Wonder Wheel” and Saoirse Ronan in the beloved coming-of-age tale “Lady Bird.” (At the age of 23, it’s interesting that Ronan could amost play the overdue card; she has two previous nominations and came close to winning with 2016’s “Brooklyn.”) They could battle previous winner Jennifer Lawrence; never underestimate the Academy love for her, even if “mother!” didn’t light up the box office. Other winners: Frances McDormand, delivering a fierce performance as a mother searching for justice in “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” and, of course, Meryl Streep.

New Trailer For The Crown Teases Royal Romance For Margaret

Last week brought us the first trailer for season 2 of Netflix’s The Crown. The streaming service’s Royal family drama was a hit when it debuted in 2016 and the initial teaser promised more of the same to come, as Queen Elizabeth (Claire Foy) and Prince Phillip’s (Matt Smith) marriage is tested even further by the all-important duties of ruling the country.

In this newly released promo that you’ll see above, the focus is shifted away from the central couple and onto Elizabeth’s wayward sister, Princess Margaret (Vanessa Kirby).

While Claire Foy got the lion’s share of attention for her breakout performance in season one of Netflix‘s “The Crown,” her on screen sister Vanessa Kirby didn’t escape notice.

Elizabeth Cantillon Developing Series Based on Souad Mekhennet’s “I Was Told to Come Alone”

Mekhennet: iwastoldtocomealone.com

Producer Elizabeth Cantillon is working on another series. Just a few weeks after news broke about her collaboration with Lynn Shelton, Liz Tigelaar, and Amy Pascal on Hulu’s “La Woman,” Deadline reports that Cantillon is developing a show based on Souad Mekhennet’s bestselling memoir “I Was Told to Come Alone: My Journey Behind the Lines of Jihad.” Published in June, the book traces Mekhennet’s experiences as a German-born Muslim journalist reporting on jihadists throughout the Middle East and Europe.

The potential drama series would center on the character Mekhennet “as she pursues Jihadi leaders around the globe, putting her own life on the line to expose the complicated truths behind the War on Terror,” the source details. “While she explores the devastating effects of terrorism, she also finds humor and levity in the most harrowing of moments.”

Cantillon is producing with Brillstein Entertainment PartnersMissy Malkin and Jon Liebman. Laura Quicksilver is overseeing the project for The Cantillon Company.

“The Girl in the Spider’s Web,” the Claire Foy-starrer based on David Lagercrantz’s Lisbeth Salander novel, and Michelle MacLaren’s WWII-era drama “The Nightingale” are among Cantillon’s upcoming projects. Her previous credits include “The Banger Sisters” and “Concussion.”

Mekhennet currently works as a national security correspondent for The Washington Post. The Chicago Journalists Association will honor Mekhennet’s contributions to journalism with the 2017 Daniel Pearl Award at its annual dinner on Friday.

Elizabeth Cantillon Developing Series Based on Souad Mekhennet’s “I Was Told to Come Alone” was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.
