On the back of another sold out London run, Letters Live is bringing its star-studded show to the Royal Albert Hall on 3 October 2019, in what will be its most ambitious night to date. The date will also see the launch of a new series of themed Letters of Note books, compiled by co-producer Shaun Usher.

A celebration of the enduring power of the letter, Letters Live is an unforgettable live experience that pairs great performers with remarkable literary correspondence, and from the most unexpected and varied of sources.

Hailed in The Observer as “the best letters in the world read by the best voices”, Letters Live had its premiere at The Tabernacle in west London in December 2013. Since then it has been staged over sixty times, including performances in New York, Brixton Prison, Los Angeles, and the Calais Jungle.

As is always the case with Letters Live, the line-up for the Royal Albert Hall show will remain under wraps until the night. Past performers have included Oscar-winner Olivia Colman and co-producer Benedict Cumberbatch, as well as Gillian Anderson, Sir Ian McKellen, Sanjeev Bhaskar, Thom Yorke, Jude Law, Stephen Fry, Brie Larson, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Nick Cave, Stephen Fry and Sir Ben Kingsley, plus live music from Reggie Watts to Benjamin Booker.

Letters read at previous shows have included ones written by David Bowie, Marge Simpson, Mohandas Gandhi, Elvis Presley, Janis Joplin, Kurt Vonnegut, Charlotte Bronte, John Steinbeck, and Che Guevara as well as by many remarkable, lesser-known people.

Letters Live was inspired by Shaun Usher’s bestselling Letters of Note and Simon Garfield’s To the Letter. A worldwide phenomenon, Usher’s Letters of Note titles have been translated into eighteen languages and sold over 500,000 copies worldwide, with the Letters of Note website visited by tens of millions of people.

Benedict Cumberbatch has signed to narrate the feature documentary There’s A Hole In My Bucket, about Royd Tolkien, the great-grandson of J.R.R. Tolkien.

The film follows Tolkien’s journey to complete a bucket list of 50 challenges created for him by his brother Mike who suffered from motor nerurone disease, known as ALS in the US, in 2015.

Unknown to Royd Tolkien, he had secretly compiled a bucket list to be delivered to his brother after his death.

The documentary follows Tolkien as he attempts to complete those 50 challenges in New Zealand – it is being directed by Robert Cavanah.

UK sales outfit Evolutionary Films will be market screening the title at the upcoming American Film Market in Los Angeles.

The film is being produced by James Fisher at Sky Limit Films, with Royd Tolkien.

“Benedict was previously aware of my brother, Mike, and his battle with this terrible disease; In 2014 I organised a charity screening of The Hobbit on behalf of my brother, and Benedict joined fellow cast members who kindly recorded greetings for that event,” explained Royd Tolkien.

Cumberbatch is a patron for the Motor Neurone Disease Association UK. [Source]

The Weinstein Co. buyer Lantern Entertainment and 13 Films will distribute the Harvey Weinstein-tainted Thomas Edison biopic, as well as the unreleased horror film ‘Polaroid.’

13 Films has partnered with Lantern Entertainment, an affiliate of The Weinstein Co. buyer Lantern Capital Partners, to handle foreign distribution of the Harvey Weinstein-tainted historical epic The Current War.

The film, which focuses on the rivalry between electricity innovators Thomas Edison (played by Benedict Cumberbatch) and George Westinghouse (Michael Shannon), was a casualty in last year’s fallout of the revelations about the disgraced movie mogul, who acted as producer on the project.

Lantern Capital Partners subsequently paid $289 million for what remained of TWC.

The partners will also handle the foreign distribution of the unreleased horror pic Polaroid after both titles were acquired through Lantern’s acquisition of assets of TWC. Current War also stars Nicholas Hoult, Tom Holland, Katherine Waterston and Tuppence Middleton.

Initially due for release last November, Current War has gone without a domestic release date. The film, directed by Alfonso Gomez-Rejon, first bowed at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival.

Polaroid, based on the award-winning short by Lars Klevberg and from the producers of the The Ring and The Grudge, centers on high school loner Bird Fitcher, who he has no idea what dark secrets are tied to the vintage Polaroid camera she stumbles upon.

13 Films is an international distribution and finance company founded by Tannaz Anisi and based in Los Angeles. Lantern is an affiliate of Lantern Capital Partners, a indie studio with a library of over 270 films, including The King’s Speech and The Artist. [Source]

Benedict Cumberbatch will star in a Brexit drama for Channel 4 from Tessa Ross and Juliette Howell’s House Productions.

The Doctor Strange actor, currently starring in the Showtime and Sky drama Patrick Melrose, will front Brexit (working title), a political thriller written by playwright James Graham, best known for political plays such as The Vote and the recent Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? play Quiz.

Cumberbatch will star as Dominic Cummings, the leading strategist and Campaign Director of Vote Leave.

The one-off drama will unpack the anatomy of the historic, high-stakes campaign to win the hearts and minds of the British people and will be directed by Black Mirror’s Toby Haynes.

It was commissioned by C4’s Head of Drama Beth Willis and is exec produced by Howell and Ross and produced by Lynn Horsford. It will begin shooting later this year.

Graham says: “I’m so excited — not to mention a little nervous — to have this chance to try and get under the skin of what happened during that historic vote. I hope by going behind-the-scenes of the campaign, we’re able to interrogate the consequences of what happened during these eight weeks that have changed the country forever. To work with this incredible team and Channel 4 to bring this story to life on screen is a real honor.”

Willis adds: “James’ whip smart, funny and insightful writing is a breath of fresh air. We are so thrilled that he and the genius that is Benedict Cumberbatch feel Channel 4 is the right home for it – Brexit is exactly the kind of explosive and illuminating drama we want to have on the channel.” [Source]
