Downton Abbey Television

Spoilers warning: new still under the cut.

RADIO TIMES – This Sunday, series five of Downton Abbey will come to an end with a suitably special occasion: the wedding of Lady Rose and Atticus Aldridge.

The newly engaged pair have wasted no time tying the knot but when it comes to Rose’s wedding dress, there will be no skimping on style, either.

“Lady Rose would have had her wedding dress made especially for her big day, so I was anticipating having to make something for her from scratch,” says Anna Mary Scott Robbins, Downton’s costume designer, in this week’s Radio Times.

“As it happened, we had the biggest stroke of luck” – finding a beaded, original 1920s dress that matched Rose’s “feminine, pretty and frivolous” style.

Movies Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

thanks to EW, we have our first look at Lily as Elizabeth Bennet in ‘Pride and Prejudice and Zombies’. Enjoy!

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY – Have you seen the Bennet sisters lately?

It might be time to get reacquainted with Jane Austen’s most famous family. Elizabeth (Lily James), Lydia (Ellie Bamber), Mary (Millie Brady), Jane (Bella Heathcote), and Kitty (Suki Waterhouse) aren’t just eligible singles anymore; they’re sword- and knife-wielding martial artists.

With a zombie apocalypse that’s been raging for more than 70 years, they kind of have to be. Writer-director Burr Steers (Igby Goes Down) took on the adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith’s enormously popular book Pride and Prejudice and Zombies after years of development hell—David O. Russell had penned a draft and was attached to direct at one point—and rewrote the script with an eye toward realism. “The first thing I did was reinsert all the Pride and Prejudice beats,” says Steers, who also beefed up the roles of Darcy (Sam Riley) and Wickham (Jack Huston).

But it’s the spark-plug sisters who steal the show with their corset-bound roundhouse kicks. When it comes to her character, James doesn’t think that’s too much of a stretch. “Even in the original story, Elizabeth’s a fighter and beyond her contemporaries in her ambitions and her ideas of women,” she says. “She’s a badass warrior. She’s a ninja.” Filming began in late September; the action-adventure literary adaptation should hit the big screen next year.

Movies Their Finest Hour And A Half

DEADLINE – EXCLUSIVE: Lily James (Disney’s Cinderella) and Sam Claflin (The Hunger Games) are circling to star in Lone Scherfig’s Their Finest Hour And A Half. James, currently filming Burr Steer’s Pride And Prejudice And Zombies, is one of Britain’s hottest young actresses and is also attached to the plum role of Natasha in The Weinstein Company’s War And Peace miniseries.

Their Finest Hour And A Half, based on Lissa Evans’ 2009 novel that was nominated for Britain’s prestigious Orange literary prize, follows the misadventures of a British movie crew trying to make a patriotic film to boost morale after the Blitz during World War II. TV writer Gabby Chiappe is adapting. Principal photography is set for summer 2015.

The prestige picture is being produced by Wild Gaze’s Amanda Posey (A Long Way Down) and longtime associate Stephen Wooley (Byzantium) through his Number 9 Films. The pair previously made the original Fever Pitch together. BBC Films is also a partner on the project, which will be shopped to buyers next month at AFM.
