Actors Tatiana Maslany and Dane DeHaan on set in Iqaluit during filming of "Two Lovers and a Bear," April 9.

“Two Lovers and a Bear” to be promoted at Cannes Film Festival 2015

Even though it’s not even finished yet, international movie buffs will soon get a taste of a new feature film set in the Arctic and Montreal-based producer Roger Frappier is hoping that small bite creates a big appetite for the whole movie.

Frappier, whose film career spans four decades, wrapped up filming on Two Lovers and a Bear earlier this month, after completing more than two months’ worth of shooting in Iqaluit and Ontario with award-winning director Kim Nguyen.

The film, set in Iqaluit and the surrounding landscape, still needs another six months of post-production work, but Nguyen and Frappier have put together a promotional segment for the Cannes Film Festival in France, May 13 to May 24, to create advance buzz and hopefully land some distribution deals.

“We’re showing a two-minute demo at the Cannes Film Festival, for the buyers,” Frappier said, just before departing for the festival this month.

France-based distributor TF1 International will be selling the movie in Cannes for markets outside of North America.

“We hope the movie will be shown in all parts of the world,” Frappier said.

A cast and crew of 100 assembled in Iqaluit at the end of March to shoot most of the movie, which features Canadian actor Tatiana Maslany, star of the TV series Orphan Black, and American Dane DeHaan, who has starred in a string of feature films, most recently The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

The filmmakers are planning for a spring 2016 release.

Two Lovers and a Bear, as the title suggests, “is a big love story,” Frappier said.

“It’s a movie about redemption at the same time. It’s an adventure film. I think this movie is so full of life that I hope people will have a real experience watching it — and that it will give them something they’ve never had in a theatre,” he said.

“Some films, when we come out of them, we really had the impression that we have lived a real experience. And I hope this will happen to [viewers] also.”

Frappier, who was in Iqaluit with the cast and crew, described the experience of shooting in snow-bound Nunavut as “incredible.”

The producer has more than 50 films to his credit including award-winning features such as The Grand Seduction and Decline of the American Empire, and has worked on many others as a director, editor, actor and writer.

But of all his varied experiences, the Nunavut shoot ranks as his first project in cold, Arctic conditions.

The film’s financiers were concerned about a couple of things, he said.

First was the plan to shoot scenes with a polar bear, which the crew did on location in Timmins, Ont. Second was a month-long shoot in and around Iqaluit where blizzards were entirely possible.

“And these two things went marvelously,” he said. The polar bear “was such a great actor,” he laughed.

Only once did the bear give the cast and crew difficulty.

Because the trained animal’s home is actually in mild Vancouver, the actor-bear found Timmins a bit cold in mid-March.

“In fact it was, in a way, colder than in Iqaluit, because it was damp,” Frappier said. “It was not dry. And the only person who was colder than us was the bear. After every take, he wanted to go back to his trailer, because he was cold.”

After Timmins, the film crew was well prepared to shoot in Iqaluit’s early-spring Arctic conditions which the producer expected would be “twice as difficult” as a regular film shoot in the South.

In the end, “because it was so well-organized, it was twice as easy as some other movies,” he said.

He credited Iqaluit-based co-producer Ellen Hamilton and unit manager Francis Choquette, who “were able to really build a bridge between us and the local community.”

Hamilton said Frappier’s world-class production crew offered a rare opportunity for Iqaluit-based filmmakers and actors to demonstrate — and also improve — their field skills and abilities.

Among them were Shawn Inuksuk, who worked with the crew as a camera assistant during shoots in Iqaluit and Ottawa.

The 29-year-old filmmaker said Frappier’s crew, more than any other he has worked with, seemed comfortable working in isolated, cold conditions and in partnership with indigenous communities.

“They had a certain respect for the local culture,” Inuksuk said. “They weren’t using a lot of the stereotypes that we’re used to seeing [about the Arctic] in international cinema.”

The young filmmaker’s work with the crew ended when shooting wrapped up near Ottawa, May 2 at the Diefenbunker Museum.

Scenes shot in Iqaluit, particularly in Apex, “look amazing,” he said, and now he can’t wait to see the final product.

Apex and other parts of Iqaluit doubled as unnamed Arctic communities in the film. The story centres around Lucy, a young Inuk woman portrayed by Maslany, and Roman, played by DeHaan.

“I think there was a lot of careful research done, to portray these characters as accurately as possible with the northern lifestyle,” Inuksuk said.

“I think some of it is going to be quite shocking, but so are a lot of the modern realities of living in the North.

“A lot of times, when people go to see films and they see portrayals of the North, it’s often this very romanticized version of it, which is not necessarily accurate, and kind of relies on these old stereotypes that are archaic and really outdated,” he said.

Two Lovers and a Bear, Inuksuk said, will show “a modern portrayal of the North — along with the amazing beauty it has to offer, as well as some of the more ugly social aspects.”

Frappier said the $8.7 million production will be ready for release in the spring of 2016.

Dane DeHaan, Cara Delevingne Starring in Luc Besson Sci-Fi Movie ‘Valerian’

Dane DeHaan and Cara Delevingne will star in Luc Besson’s science-fiction movie “Valerian,” based on the graphic novel.

DeHaan and Delevingne will play the time-traveling Valerian and his sidekick Laureline. Besson will write and direct, while Virginie Besson Silla will produce on behalf of EuropaCorp, which will finance, produce and distribute.

The graphic novel — set in the 28th Century — was created by Pierre Christin and Jean-Claude Mezieres in 1967 and has since sold over 10 million copies in 21 languages. Production is set to begin in December with a global release planned for the summer of 2017.

EuropaCorp’s slate includes “The Transporter Refueled,” the start of a new trilogy in the studio’s action franchise, debuting September 4; “Shut In,” starring Naomi Watts, which will be released February 19; “Nine Lives,” starring Kevin Spacey and Jennifer Garner, slated for April 29; and “The Lake,” starring Sullivan Stapleton and J.K. Simmons, which will hit theaters on July 15.

DeHaan starred in “The Amazing Spider Man 2,” and Delevingne will be seen in Fox’s romance-drama “Paper Towns” in July. Besson, a prolific producer, has directed “Lucy,” “The Fifth Element” and “La Femme Nikita.”

Besson had disclosed in 2012 that he would direct “Valerian” from his own script. He made the announcement about the castings and start of production through his first Tweets from his Twitter account.

Dane DeHaan and Daniel Radcliffe with director John Krokidas. PLEASE sign the petition to make the reunion happen

“Young Americans” with Dane DeHaan, Daniel Radcliffe (dir. John Krokidas) has been greenlit!

Daniel Radcliffe and Dane DeHaan will be reteaming with their Kill Your Darlings director John Krokidas for another real-life inspired film, trading in their roles as Beat Generation writers for ambitious, would-be politicians.

StarStream Media announced that the company will finance and produce Krokidas’ Young Americans, based on the Black List script by Wes Jones. The film is inspired by the real lives of Karl Rove, played by DeHaan, and Lee Atwater, played by Radcliffe, on a cross-country road trip as ambitious college students.

The film will portray Rove as more of a straight-laced student who is running to be the head of the College Republicans at his university with the help of Atwater. Atwater decides to take his friend on a trip through the American South, during which they run into Katie King, played by Amanda Seyfried, who may pose a threat to the two boys’ ambitions. In real life, Rove would famously become “The Architect” for President George W. Bush’s two presidential campaigns, while Atwater became advisor to both Ronald Reagan and George H. W. Bush, as well as chairman of the Republic National Committee.

Young Americans is set to go into production this fall, produced by StarStream’s Kim Leadford, as well as Liz Destro of Destro Films and Frank Frattaroli from circle of Confusion. XYZ FIlms is coordinating international sales rights at the Cannes Film Festival later this month.

Dane DeHaan, Mia Goth Joining Gore Verbinski's 'A Cure for Wellness'

Dane DeHaan, Mia Goth Joining Gore Verbinski’s ‘A Cure for Wellness’

Director Gore Verbinski has found the leads for his supernatural horror project A Cure for Wellness: Dane DeHaan and Mia Goth.

Revolutionary Road scribe Justin Haythe is writing the script for the New Regency project.

Wellness tells the story of an employee (DeHaan) who is sent to rescue his boss from a European “wellness spa” but soon realizes he’s trapped, and discovers that the facility has a more sinister purpose than just serving the health needs of its patients. Goth, who is in negotiations for the role, will play a longtime patient who is oblivious to the spa director’s dark designs for her.

Verbinski, who is also producing through his Blind Wink Productions, last made a horror film (The Ring) in 2002. Since then, he’s focused on the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, Rango and The Lone Ranger. He’s repped by CAA.

Production is slated to start in Europe in June, and the film will be distributed worldwide through New Regency’s deal with 20th Century Fox.

DeHaan, who broke out with his role in 2012’s Chronicle, was most recently seen in The Amazing Spider-Man 2and Life After Beth. He’s got quite a few projects in the can, including James Dean pic Life, Tulip Fever and Two Lovers and a Bear. He’s repped by CAA and MGMT Entertainment.

Goth is more of a newcomer. She appeared in Lars von Trier’s Nymphomaniac: Vol. II, and will next be seen in the upcoming all-star adventure movie Everest with Jake Gyllenhaal and Keira Knightley. The British actress is repped by WME, The Curtis Brown Group in the U.K., Storm Artists and 3 Arts Entertainment.

INTERSTELLAR SOUL: DANE DEHAAN

FROM A GROTESQUE GREEN GOBLIN AND MURDERING POET TO A CRIPPLED BOOTLEGGER AND GRIEVING RAVER, IN THREE SHORT YEARS Dane DeHaan HAS ESTABLISHED HIMSELF AS HOLLYWOOD’S GO-TO MAN FOR COMPLEX, FLAWED OUTSIDERS. THIS YEAR, THE 29-YEAR-OLD TAKES ON THE ULTIMATE BIG SCREEN MISFIT: James Dean. NOVELIST, SCREENWRITER AND A MAN WITH AN EYE FOR HOLLYWOOD MYTHOLOGY Bruce Wagner SIZES UP THE YOUNG STAR…

You’re an actor and he’s an actor; he’s more than an actor – he’s a fading celestial poster beside Einstein’s and Monroe’s – people your age don’t even think about him really or know about him, your secret fear is they never will, you’re proprietary of his memory and legacy; he’s your hero, he’s always been your hero, and this smart old Dutch filmmaker keeps approaching you about him, about memorialising James Dean, but not really, he wants you to become James Dean, he’s a shockingly smart old Dutch auteur who worked with Nirvana for fuck’s sake and directed that amazing Joy Division thing called Control and Phil Hoffman’s exquisite last turn, A Most Wanted Man, this flying Dutchman keeps asking you to play Dean, keeps coming back even after you’ve said no five times, he and his people keep saying they want you on film, as Dean, forever, but you’re in a quandary. Because any actor who’s asked to play a real person is in a quandary, sort of, even though there are a million precedents, a dilemma presents, reason being that actors are loathe to consider themselves impersonators, they want to be alchemists or be considered as such, as the best, in truth, often are. It’s what they aspire to be. But young rising-actor- playing-young-dead-more-than-famous-actor presents a hellish, challenging riddle. It isn’t a Capote or a Jake LaMotta or a Cheryl Strayed or a Stephen Hawking – it’s acting like a famous actor! The sticky, inherent vice of the puzzle isn’t the dreaded “meta” aspects of the task at hand but the sheer potential shameful TV movie biopic horror of it. Actors act so they may disappear – how to disappear into the cartoonily calcified myth of an estate- copyrighted representation of the best (intuitive shapeshifter) and the worst (commodified, caricatured) of one’s trade?

Richard Burton once said an actor is less than a man but an actress is more than a woman.

Does an actor who signs on to play James Dean become less than less of a man?

“I was at a loss as to why I should do it, and I think for a good reason. Scared of it, ultimately. Big task. I’ve had a poster of Dean on my wall since I was in college and still do now. I said no five times but they kept calling. My wife was trying to convince me, my manager was trying to convince me. I sat down with the producer and he explained that the movie wasn’t a biopic, not a standard film. It tries to show how a normal person can be turned into an icon – what that means. The journey of that. And there’s a new generation of people who don’t know who Dean is, and that’s sad to me. Anton [Corbijn, the old Dutchman] seemed really chill. You know, the amazing thing about Dean was that he only made three films and then he was gone.” 

The conundrum: filmmakers make ultra-violent films then assert their films are statements against violence. Filmmakers make biopics and assert they aren’t biopics. In the end, the only thing that matters is Art. And this is, after all, Anton Corbijn.

James Dean was gay. JD wasn’t gay. JD had a sexual relationship with his pastor after his mother died. JD fucked Pier Angeli on the beach at their secret cottage hideaway. JD loved men and wanted to sleep with them because his father was a prick. JD loved women and wanted to sleep with them because his mother, whom he adored, upped and died of uterine cancer when he was nine. JD had sex with men only for money or favours that advanced his career. It is impossible, says a friend, through the tule fog of celebrity tabloid history, to imagine Dean having a fulfilling sexual relationship with a woman. It is impossible, says another headlight in the fog, to imagine him not. Like Kerouac and everyone else, Dean’s sexuality is eternally in the eye of the beholder.

There are no grey areas about Dane DeHaan, who finally agreed to be James Dean in a film called Life by Anton Corbijn. It’s about the friendship between the eponymous magazine’s photographer, Dennis Stock (Rob Pattinson) and DD. Stock was hired to do a photo essay of the actor before East of Eden came out and the two travelled together from LA to Indiana to New York; many of the iconic images of the rebel were taken during those two weeks, the more well-known ones in Times Square. You can’t get much out of DeHaan, and not because he’s cagey. He presents as a true American innocent, polite, thoughtful and untormented. It’s almost uncanny, shocking. Young, and married – he’s 29 and has been wed since bride and groom were 25, which feels young for an ascending male star to be hitched – Dane went to musical theatre camp from the age of four to 16. Four to 16! That’s almost like being in a cult. His tastes in reading and film and music are middle-of-the-road, middle school syllabus-worthy.

 

“I WAS AT A LOSS AS TO WHY I SHOULD DO IT, AND I THINK FOR A GOOD REASON. SCARED OF IT, ULTIMATELY. BIG TASK. I’VE HAD A POSTER OF JAMES DEAN ON MY WALL SINCE I WAS IN COLLEGE AND STILL DO NOW. I SAID NO FIVE TIMES BUT THEY KEPT CALLING. I SAT DOWN WITH THE PRODUCER AND HE EXPLAINED THAT THE MOVIE WASN’T A BIOPIC. IT TRIES TO SHOW HOW A NORMAL PERSON CAN BE TURNED INTO AN ICON – WHAT THAT MEANS. THE DOURNEY OF THAT”

 

If you ask him what book or film or work of art transformed him, he’ll say, “I guess I never had an aha moment.” He says it like a farmer, not a farm boy, and the guilelessness overcomes and refreshes. He’s no Depp, no Penn, in search of demented and perverse suicidal fathers – no Bukowski and Hunter Thompson for this kid. He doesn’t have a pretentious, bad boy bone in his body. There will be no marathon 3am to 6am phone calls with tender, sadistic, druggie genius litterateurs, anecdotally suitable for future talk shows and memoirs.

For Dane, the most shocking thing about James Dean is that he lived in Santa Monica and Brentwood, and went to UCLA.

DeHaan himself grew up in Allentown, Pennsylvania. He’s close to mother. “She’s one of my best friends,” says he, with endearing innocence. “We watched a lot of Disney in the house. When I turned 12, I was going to have a party and take everyone to Ace Ventura – loved Ace Ventura! – but we had to cancel it because one of the parents didn’t want her kid to go to a PG-13.”

The whole party, cancelled, out of prudence and decency! Who are these people? It wasn’t until he went to acting school that Dane began his education in film. His acting coach said, You should really watch this, so he did: Dean, Brando, Paul Newman, Elia Kazan, Arthur Miller. “Forrest Gump meant a lot, it was more than entertainment. Its craftsmanship blew me away.” No Cassavetes, no Von Trier, no Altman for this boy. He wasn’t even aware of the Beats until he knocked ’em dead as Lucien Carr in Kill Your Darlings. Then his education continued on a higher, less Gumpian plane: The Motorcycle Diaries, the Brothers Dardenne, The Shining and Rosemary’s Baby. “Though I’m not really a big fan of horror.” 

I believe it.

No serious injuries or illnesses when growing up, no deaths, no extremity. The only potentially soap operatic thing is, he never knew his grandfather on his mom’s side because she didn’t know the man himself. The traumatic event of his life was at 17: his parents’ divorce. The coming of age moment, more ugh than aha. A perfect childhood, then splitsville: it all came crashing down one summer. “I took the family role as ‘leader'” – he has an older sister – “at least for a few months. I stepped up. I think maybe I yelled at my father for a night or two. You know, if a friend’s in trouble, they can come to me, but I’m not good at giving advice. They can come to me for honesty and truthfulness but I’m not great at working through stuff. I’m not a worker-througher. They go to my wife for that.”

“You know, I’ve loved Dean all my life but I guess I didn’t really know that much about him. I read about him for the film, his early life. His mom and dad moved to Santa Monica for his father’s work when he was pretty young, then his mom died from cancer and his dad couldn’t really take care of him. He sent him back to Indiana to be raised by his aunt and uncle. He had kind of a fractured childhood. And it’s funny, I thought that because he came up in the time of Adler and Strasberg and the Method, 

I thought as an actor he’d be really into that. That he would have bought into it, into everything Strasberg was telling him. But he didn’t! He did things his own way and didn’t like to be told what he was doing was wrong or bad. I think he was kind of very insecure that way. He’d lock himself in his trailer for three hours until he felt he was ready. I guess the way that I work is, well, I enjoy the whole classical training thing. I do it as I was taught – the breaking down of a script. I do what I was taught to do and when it’s time to go, I toss all that out the window. I really do think Dean was afraid of being wrong. He worked really hard to get into The Actors Studio but when he did his first monologue he got totally torn apart and barely ever went back to class! He wasn’t like Brando, you know, the protege of Stella. Dean worked really hard to get a spot in Strasberg’s class.”

When Dane became a young adult, he talks as if he awakened from an Interstellar-like slumber. “I finally read Vonnegut, Gatsby… the last book was The Goldfinch, I was obsessed. I think I read it in like three days. I haven’t really felt comfortable picking up another book since. I guess I’m still digesting the experience. I read a lot of scripts. I would like to do theatre, though.” Asked what dramatists interest him – Mamet? LaBute? Something old school? – he says, “The only writer in the last five years is Annie Baker. She wrote The Flick. I was in The Aliens in 2010. [And received a New York Times rave for his portrayal of a young high school misfit in the Rattlestick Playwrights Theater production.] I’d love to work with PT Anderson, Wes Anderson, Aronofsky, Nolan. I act because I love it. I’m obsessed with acting… because it’s something I can work at forever – it’s a never-ending quest. I do it for the work,

I honour the work. There’s nothing else I really do. I love to golf but was never good enough to go pro. Golf is my meditation.

I backpacked around Europe between my junior and senior years in college. Backpacked with my girlfriend, now wife. My favourite place is Paris. I’m not really drawn to darkness. I guess my shining moment was when I played the Rooster in Annie. [Strange. Isn’t that what “DeHaan” means, in Dutch? I read that somewhere but forgot to ask him.] Or maybe Sir Oakley in Anything Goes – I was 14. I don’t really listen to music that much. If I’m alone, I prefer silence. But I like the Avett Brothers. And The National and that new song by Hozier. I guess I just let life happen, and stick to my guns. I’m actually an incredibly grateful person. I’m really pleased with how my life has gone. I’d like to be a dad. But right now, I’m a ‘fur dad’. I have a dog that I treat like a human child.”

Dane is nearly five years older than Dean was when he died. He’ll crash on a couch, not in a Porsche, after learning his lines; he’ll never put a bag over his head that says “I AM NOT FAMOUS ANYMORE”; he’ll go on to do theatre without Birdman’s nudge-wink smarter-than-thou hijinks. And he will continue to evolve in that thoughtful, homespun, grateful, journeyman way.

What you see is what you get – except on camera, where the mystery really matters.
