According to Roadside Attraction’s twitter page they will be releasing the movie next spring!
In the first major deal prior to the Toronto Intl. Film Festival, Elizabeth Olsenâ€™s romantic thriller â€śThereseâ€ť has been acquired for U.S. distribution.
â€śThereseâ€ť has been set to premiere on Sept. 7 at Toronto. The films also stars Oscar Isaac, Tom Felton and Jessica Lange in the feature film directing debut of Charlie Stratton.
LD Entertainment produced and financed and was planning to distribute prior to the Roadside Attractions deal.
Story is set in the lower depths of 1860s Paris, based on Emile Zolaâ€™s novel â€śTherese Raquin.â€ť Olsen plays a sexually repressed young woman who is trapped into a loveless marriage to her sickly cousin (Felton) by her domineering aunt (Lange) before entering into an affair with a childhood friend, played by Isaac.
Roadside Attractions will oversee the marketing and distribution of the film in collaboration with LD distribution topper David Dinerstein.
Marvel Studios is in talks with Bradley Cooper and Elizabeth Olsen to join the casts of two of its movies, sources confirm to The Hollywood Reporter.
Marvel is in early talks with Cooper for the actor to voice Rocket Raccoon in Guardians of the Galaxy, its sci-fi adventure movie. And the company is in negotiations with Olsen to play the Scarlet Witch in The Avengers: The Age of Ultron, the sequel to the billion-dollar-grossing 2012 movie, multiple sources tell Heat Vision.
Sources familiar with the deals say that Olsen’s dealmaking is further along than Cooper’s, which is just beginning. Bleeding Cool first reported Olsen’s negotiations. Latino Review first reported Cooper’s offer.
Marvel had no comment.
Indie darling Olsen, meanwhile, would be one of the few new additions to the Avengers sequel, playing one of Marvel’s top female characters. The Scarlet Witch, who is usually adorned with a cape and pointy headgear, has the power to affect certain outcomes by altering probabilities. Her powers have also sometimes included the ability to reshape reality. (On the costume front, director Joss Whedon has already said in interviews that the red tights won’t be segueing from page to screen.)
The character’s backstory is interesting, as she and her brother, the mutant speedster known as Quicksilver, began publishing life as villains and are the offspring of iconic villain Magneto. The two eventually became integral part of the Avengers, with the Witch marrying an android created by Ultron known as The Vision.
Olsen, repped by Gersh, has up until now been known for her indie work such as Martha Marcy May Marlene. She has slowly transitioned into tentpole fare and recently wrapped shooting on Legendary’s upcoming Godzilla movie.
Saoirse Ronan is out, and Elizabeth Olsen may be in for the much talked-about Scarlet Witch role in Joss Whedonâ€™s Marvel sequel â€śThe Avengers: Age of Ultronâ€ť, according to Bleeding Cool. Olsen is apparently on Whedonâ€™s radar after Ronan reportedly turned it down at some point, despite expressing interest earlier.
Interestingly, Olsenâ€™s â€śGodzillaâ€ť reboot co-star Aaron Johnson is up for the role of Scarlet Witchâ€™s twin brother Quicksilver, and his deal is apparently still ongoing. If both of them finalize things, they will join an already established billion dollar franchise and join Marvel and Hollywood heavy-hitters like Robert Downey, Jr. as Iron Man, Chris Evans as Captain America, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow and Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye in the sequel that will start filming in early 2014 for a May 1, 2015 release. Olsen will reportedly adopt a European accent for the role that is described as scene-stealing.
In another interesting twist, Whedon and â€śThe Avengersâ€ť arenâ€™t the only ones targeting the hot rising star for their superhero franchise. Olsenâ€™s name has apparently also been brought up a lot in regards to the Sue Storm/Invisible Woman role in Josh Trankâ€™s â€śFantastic Fourâ€ť reboot. Looks like Fox may already be too late if sheâ€™s negotiating for the rival studioâ€™s project. Sure things on Olsenâ€™s upcoming slate include â€śGodzillaâ€ť and Spike Leeâ€™s â€śOldboyâ€ť remake, coming out in November. Sheâ€™s a very respected and in demand young actress after impressing in her debut, Sundance hit â€śMartha Marcy May Marleneâ€ť in 2011.
