With Rachel Weisz, Sam Claflin and Holliday Grainger already on board, Variety is reporting that Game of Thrones stalwart Iain Glen and stage actor Simon Russel Bleale have agreed to star in the feature film, itself based on the epynomous novel penned by Daphne du Maurier.

The movie is being adapted for the silver screen by director Roger Michell (Notting Hill,Enduring Love), who expressed his own excitement about steering du Maurier’s “detailed, dark, sexy and cinematic” story into theaters. For Michell, “so many really great films have grown out of the works of Daphne Du Maurier: ‘Don’t Look Now,’ ‘The Birds,’ ‘Rebecca’… .and here’s another of her classics which is at once detailed, dark, sexy, cinematic and full of surprises. I look forward to bringing this thrilling story to the screen with such a brilliant cast.”

Indeed, My Cousin Rachel has graced cinemas before when, in 1952, screen icons Olivia de Havilland and Richard Burton assumed the central parts. Orbiting around the plight of a young Englishman, du Maurier’s romantic novel imagines a scenario where our protagonist plots revenge against his mesmerizing cousin, only to find himself falling under her beguiling charm.

Kevin Loader and Anita Overland are attached to produce on behalf of Free Range Films, and given production has been slated to begin on April 4, expect filming to continue on Michell’s adaptation into the summer, with England and Italy acting as the two primary locations.

Aboriginal mythology and science fiction collide in high-stakes ‘near fi’ drama, Cleverman, a genre-bending new TV series produced by Goalpost Pictures Australia and Pukeko Pictures for Australia’s ABC TV in co-production with Sundance TV and Red Arrow International. Wellington’s Weta Workshop contributed creature design, specialty hair work and makeup effects and Park Road Post Production provided picture, sound and VFX post production services. It’s an Australasian co-production that’s been dubbed both “ambitious1” and “adventurous2”.

Set in the near future, Cleverman tells the story of an ancient mythological species that must live among humans and battle for survival in a world that wants to silence, exploit and destroy them.

Giving physical form to 60,000 years’ worth of stories from the Aboriginal Dreamtime is no small task, but Weta Workshop’s crew of concept designers, who have lent their talents to the likes of District 9, Elysium and Avatar, relished the opportunity to explore a new world in a ‘near-fi’ future. Armed with knowledge and inspiration from director Wayne Blair, fellow designer Jacob Nash, and the team at Pukeko Pictures, more than 150 designs were created for the mysterious, not-quite-human family of ‘hairies’.

Meanwhile, Weta Workshop Senior Concept Designer Andrew Baker was tasked with dreaming up something decidedly not-human: the nightmarish monster that serves as the series’ primary antagonist.

Once the designs hit the Workshop floor, it was over to a specially-formed crew of technicians to craft the numerous bespoke hair pieces that were to decorate the bodies of the Hairypeople. Led by Hair Supervisor Fiona Sole and Hair and Makeup Designer Kath Brown, individual strands of hand-dyed hair were painstakingly knotted onto sheer lace bases, custom designed for each actor.

Cleverman may have Antipodean DNA but it’s already finding fans in both hemispheres. The first Australian TV show ever to be invited to screen at the Berlinale Special Series, its first two episodes premiered to “thunderous2” applause.

Starring an acclaimed ensemble cast featuring Iain Glen (Game of Thrones), Frances O’Connor (The Missing), and newcomers Hunter Page-Lochard and Rob Collins in the two pivotal central roles, Cleverman makes its highly anticipated small-screen debut in mid-2016.

“Our top priority was to reflect the passion and integrity that the makers of Cleverman brought to the project, by creating stunning imagery that did justice to the overarching ideas of this incredible story.”
-Weta Workshop Senior Concept Designer, Leri Greer

“Aboriginal Dreamtime mythology: what a fantastic and original foundation for a sci-fi story! Weta Workshop was invited to dream up some culturally relevant characters for Cleverman, and our design and manufacturing teams took to the task with great enthusiasm. It is very pleasing to hear the series is getting rave reviews.”
-Weta Workshop CEO and Co-founder, Sir Richard Taylor

Cleverman is based on the original concept by Ryan Griffen, and produced by Goalpost Pictures and Pukeko Pictures for ABC TV with the assistance of Screen Australia, Screen NSW and the New Zealand Screen Production Grant.

All ‘Game of Thrones’ cast members read the script with trepidation and think, ‘Please God, keep me alive,’ admits Scottish actor Iain Glen.

Known to fans of the blockbuster series as Ser Jorah Mormont, Glen is currently back in Galway for 12 weeks to film the next instalments of the popular ‘Jack Taylor’ detective series. It’s a change from filming the sprawling Game of Thrones – the sixth series of which returns in April – but one that Glen enjoys.

“Game of Thrones as a spectacle is so epic and vast but it’s a juggernaut, it’s very slow to turn over and move… [Jack Taylor] is very fleet of foot, you’re doing ducking, diving, guerrilla filming, a lot of hand held [camera work], moving very quickly, shooting 5 or 6 pages a day, but to be honest I prefer that, it’s lovely to be occupied as an actor and it’s a very demanding schedule, but one I thrive on,” he says.

Beginning with ‘Jack Taylor: The Guards’ in 2010, it’s now Glen’s fifth time back to film here, with production currently underway on the next three feature-length instalments of the series, which is based on Galway writer Ken Bruen’s crime novels.

“When I first read Ken’s novels, the nature of his crime really appealed to me, it seems to me to be very quintessentially Irish and he writes great characters and great plotlines,” says Glen, explaining that he is now involved in script development and all aspects of the production, which he thoroughly enjoys.

He also enjoys playing the hard-boiled private investigator. “Jack’s a very troubled, tortured soul but I always think he’s fundamentally a moral and a good man and he’s willing to take the fight against the powerful and put himself in a line in a way that very few people would or could and I admire his qualities, no matter how messed up he is,” says Glen.

“I love the role, I’m very fond of Galway and Galway’s always been incredibly accommodating,” he says, explaining that the public allow the crew to film unhindered in public places. “It’s unusual – if you’re filming in London, you get a lot of cantankerous reaction because people are very busy and in a hurry and they don’t want to stop for filming, but in Galway, the rhythm of life, it suits.

“It’s unusual to be able to film in a place like this, which offers so many different contrasts with the coast, the nature of the town, the history of Galway, and we can sort of duck and dive and film all over it.”

The actor has gotten to know Galway very well during his time here, describing it as a ‘walking city’, much like his native Edinburgh. “My favourite walk is starting from Eyre Square walking all along the coast past Salthill and as far as my legs can carry me and then turning around and coming back. It’s a beautiful walk.”

And Glen is likely to return to Galway again, as more ‘Jack Taylor’ instalments are planned. The crime series has developed a loyal fanbase around the world, with the next instalment being first screened in Germany in October, in Ireland after Christmas, and, significantly, also being made available on Netflix.

Glen’s Game of Thrones character Jorah has also become a fan favourite and, given the high body count of the show’s five previous seasons, fans, including those Glen meets in Galway, always want to know if he will be alright. “Unfortunately I don’t even know!” he says. “Even if I did I wouldn’t tell them!”

He adds that it’s nice to play one of the few loyal characters in the series. “There’s a huge swathe of different sorts of characters in Game of Thrones but he’s one of the handful of good souls in it and I think people have been caught by the frustrated love within the man for the lady who he’s passionate for and has a great belief in [‘Mother of Dragons’ Daenerys]. That’s sort of stayed alive and the writers do respond to the feel that audiences are liking about it and they’ve brought Ser Jorah’s story a little more to the fore than in the novels and I’ve been grateful for that.”

He adds, “You’re very lucky as an actor if you just happen to land one of these gigs that turns into that global mass hit like ‘Game of Thrones’. I think it’s officially the most successful TV show of all time. That’s not to do with any single actor in it at all, it’s to do with a fantastic company like HBO having the confidence and the belief to fund an almost impossible to film story and taking a punt on it and backing it.”

“It’s a treat to be involved in and we all just pray we stay alive, and read the script with trepidation and think, ‘Please God, keep me alive.’”

When it comes to the upcoming series, Glen only says, “Jorah’s not in a happy place currently, so we’ll just have to see what happens to him.”
