The previously unknown plot of ‘Wonder Wheel’ has surfaced, along with two pictures from the movie.
‘Wonder Wheel’ tells the story of four characters whose lives intertwine amid the hustle and bustle of the Coney Island amusement park in the 1950s: Ginny (Kate Winslet), an emotionally volatile former actress now working as a waitress in a clam house; Humpty (Jim Belushi), Ginny’s rough-hewn carousel operator husband; Mickey (Justin Timberlake), a handsome young lifeguard who dreams of becoming a playwright; and Carolina (Juno Temple), Humpty’s long-estranged daughter, who is now hiding out from gangsters at her father’s apartment. Cinematographer Vittorio Storaro captures a tale of passion, violence, and betrayal that plays out against the picturesque tableau of 1950s Coney Island.
An article, published by bloody-disgusting.com back in this year’s June reveals some interesting informations regarding ‘Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams’, and the episode which features Juno. It seems she will only appear in 1 of the 10.
Airing on Channel 4 in the UK later this year and Amazon Prime in the US, anthology series ‘Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams’ will tell 10 different sci-stories across 10 total episodes. The stories are based on shorts written by the award-winning novelist, and we’ve just learned thatJuno Temple (‘Killer Joe’) and Janelle Monae (‘Moonlight’) have signed on for an episode.
Via Deadline, Temple and Monae will lead the “Autofac” episode…
Despite society and the world as we know it having collapsed, a massive, automatic product-manufacturing factory continues to operate according to the principles of consumerism – humans consume products to be happy, and in order to consume continuously, they must be denied freedom of choice and free will. When a small band of rebels decide to shut down the factory, they discover they may actually be the perfect consumers after all.
Temple will play Emily, one of the rebels, and Monae plays Alexis, an Autofac representative. Jay Paulson (‘Grimm’) and David Lyons (‘ER’) will also appear in the episode.
Peter Horton (‘Grey’s Anatomy’) directs the episode written by Travis Beacham (‘Pacific Rim’).
Each standalone episode of the series is inspired by Dick’s short stories as adapted by British and American writers including Ronald D. Moore (‘Battlestar Galactica’, ‘Outlander’), Michael Dinner (‘Justified’), Tony Grisoni (‘Red Riding’, ‘Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas’), Jack Thorne (‘National Treasure’, ‘Skins’, ‘Harry Potter and the Cursed Child’), Matthew Graham (‘Life on Mars’, ‘Doctor Who’), David Farr (‘The Night Manager’), Dee Rees (‘Mudbound’) and Travis Beacham (‘Pacific Rim’).
The series features an all-star cast including Vera Farmiga, Steve Buscemi, Greg Kinnear, Mireille Enos, Anna Paquin, Terrence Howard, Timothy Spall, Richard Madden, Holiday Grainger, Jack Reynor, Benedict Wong, Geraldine Chaplin and Bryan Cranston, who also serves as an executive producer on the series.

We bring you an exciting news piece about Woody Allen‘s upcoming movie, ‘Wonder Wheel’, that features Juno!
(From deadline.com) UPDATE Thursday AM: Woody Allen’s ‘Wonder Wheel‘ will have its world premiere as the Closing Night selection of the 55th New York Film Festival at Alice Tully Hall on Saturday, October 14. Amazon Studios will release ‘Wonder Wheel’ on December 1, 2017, the first film the studio will distribute independently.
“I’m not quite sure what I expected when I sat down to watch ‘Wonder Wheel‘, but when the lights came up I was speechless,” said NYFF Director and Selection Committee Chair Kent Jones. “There are elements in the film that will certainly be familiar to anyone who knows Woody Allen’s work, but here he holds them up to a completely new light. I mean that literally and figuratively, because Allen and Vittorio Storaro use light and color in a way that is stunning in and of itself but also integral to the mounting emotional power of the film. And at the center of it all is Kate Winslet’s absolutely remarkable performance—precious few actors are that talented, or fearless.”
EARLIER: Woody Allen’s ‘Wonder Wheel‘ looks to have been set to close out the 55th New York Film Festival, running September 28-October 15. The film, starring Kate Winslet, Juno Temple, Justin Timberlake and James Belushi, will go into limited release December 1, with Amazon Studios distributing. Amazon also has Richard Linklater’s ‘Last Flag Flying’ and Todd Haynes’ ‘Wonderstruck’ in choice spots at the Gotham fest.
Allen’s ‘Café Society’ premiered at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival. ‘Wonder Wheel’ was shot in the writer-director’s home city, returning him to Coney Island, where his alter ego Alvy Singer grew up in the shadow of the Cyclone roller coaster in 1977’s ‘Annie Hall’.
Typically, for an Allen film, plot elements of the new film are being kept under tight wraps. A logline for the drama set in the 1950s says that it will contain “larger-than-life characters, lovers, infidelity, and gangsters.” Per usual, Allen wrote the screenplay.
We’re proud to present fresh screencaps from the 2011 short movie ‘Henry’ (directed by: Michael Bernard), where Juno plays the title character’s babysitter. You can watch this 14 minute short film on it’s official website here.
