Nick (Jon Bass) would like to think he’s “endearing weird,” but the world seems to perceive him as “weird weird.” That’s tough enough, but when the feisty Dani (Juno Temple) is thrown into the mix, Nick’s non-endearing weirdness is pushed to some crazy ends.
In Ben Smith and Megan McDonnell’s ‘Meet Cute’ (written by Smith and produced by Josh Thurston), what’s meant to be a low-key study date between the two adorably mismatched stars shifts and changes over the course of an afternoon, initially weird, then charming, then right back to weird weird. (Short version: Hey, it’s really easy to be confused for a serial killer.)
As wacky as Nick may be, his open-hearted nature inspires the often-guarded Dani to play along, and the pair’s forced mingling turns into something very different. And then it’s totally upended by a series of strange misunderstandings and at least one deeply ill-advised snoop session on Nick’s computer.
It sounds, well, cute, right? Get ready, because Smith and McDonnell have some wicked — and quite well-crafted — tricks up their sleeves, bolstered by a pair of charming performances from their very game leads.
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.
W Magazine published this short article about a mysterious upcoming movie, which the well-known director made using only amateur tools.
The last that we heard from Steven Soderbergh, he’d given up on the idea of retiring from directing films to work with everyone from Daniel Craig to Adam Driver to Riley Keough to Katie Holmes to Hilary Swank on Logan Lucky, his first movie after a five-year hiatus, which is out in August. Now, we know just how un-retired Soderbergh has been: He also shot a film in secret on his iPhone, à la Sean Baker and his highly acclaimed 2015 movie Tangerine.
Like Soderbergh’s camera, though, the cast looks to be scaled down in ‘Unsane’, as the film is currently titled, compared to his upcoming summer blockbuster; so far only Claire Foy and Juno Temple have been confirmed as stars, though both definitely have the chops to carry the drama even when resources are limited. (Foy has won both SAG and Golden Globe awards for her role as a coming-of-age Queen Elizabeth II in Netflix’s The Crown, while Temple has recovered from ‘Vinyl’‘s cancellation with an upcoming Woody Allen movie also starring Kate Winslet, and the James Franco-directed film ‘The Pretenders’.)
This interview was made in May, about her new movie ‘Away’ and about the cancelled series ‘Vinyl’.
The actor stars alongside Timothy Spall in ‘Away’, a new drama set in the seaside town. Did the Lancashire resort’s ‘magic’ help her get over HBO cancelling ‘Vinyl’?
Hello Juno. How are you feeling?
I’m good. I had tonsillitis.
Are you better?
I am now but I’ll be honest, it’s really difficult when you can’t do anything because you can’t swallow or talk. I had to go and see a doctor and get some antibiotics to keep going.
You’re calling from LA. Are you one of those people who flips between accents?
I’ve lived here on and off for about eight years. I find that I try to hold on to my English accent as much as humanly possible, but I do find that you can’t help but stretch into characteristics of what you’re surrounded by. So it’s the cellphone, and the freeway – things like that are inevitable. If I said motorway here, everybody would be like, “what?”
Woody Allen’s upcoming film, “WonderWheel”, starring Juno will be released in the USA in this year’s December. The movie is set in the 1950’s, in New York, and alongside Juno it stars Kate Winslet, Justin Timberlake and Jim Belushi.
The 27-year-old actress – who has starred in movies such as ‘Horns’ and ‘Maleficent’ – revealed she would love to take on the lead role in a biographical film so she could “transform” herself “into somebody the rest of the world knows.”
She said: “I’ve dipped my toes into a fair amount, but dipping your toes doesn’t mean you’ve taken a full dive.
“It would be fun to do a Judd Apatow comedy. It would be fun to do a biopic and really have to transform yourself into somebody the rest of the world knows. I’ve always wanted to play Marilyn Monroe, but Michelle Williams nailed that.”
And while the star waits for a potential offer to fulfill her dream film role, Juno revealed she is tied up with forthcoming TV and film work, including a flick by ‘Irrational Man’ director Woody Allen.
She told The Guardian newspaper: “I’m waiting for a couple of films to come out. I did a film that Woody Allen directed, which was an amazing experience.
“Then I’m about to do a thing on TV actually, called ‘Electric Dreams’, and it’s based on Phillip K Dick stories. It’s kind of like ‘Black Mirror’ where each episode is its own bizarre little movie.”
Meanwhile, the blonde beauty recently spoke of her frustration about being an “in-between” age in Hollywood.
She said: “There are lots of parts for people who are younger than that in that period and then there are lots of parts for people who are a bit older than that, in their 30s.
“I’m sort of in between. I’m not sure I can really play an 18-year-old anymore, maybe on a good day but honestly, I’m so not 18. So that’s been kind of frustrating this year.”
