Really, any excuse to post a picture of Eva Green works for me. Even if it sounds like a ripoff of a José Saramago novel/screen adaptation.
Eva Green (Casino Royale, The Golden Compass) has been picked as the female lead in the upcoming Last Word (the working title, according to Screen Daily). Green will play a woman who falls in love as the world is beset by chaos as people begin to lose their sensory perception. So, yes, echoes of 2008’s Blindness. There’s a heap of talent attached, including Ewan MacGregor as the male lead, Connie Nielson and Stephen Dillane (who I last saw superbly portraying Thomas Jefferson in HBO’s brilliant John Adams miniseries). It’s being directed by David Mackenzie, who previously directed MacGregor in the arty thriller Young Adam. Macgregor will also be reunited with fellow Trainspotting alum Ewen Bremmer (Spud!).
But really, Eva Green! Any Eva Green news is good news. To prove my point, here is Eva Green with a puppy.
