Replacing Spacey in the role of J. Paul Getty in the movie is Christopher Plummer, whom Scott has stated was his first pick for the part. With reshoots of key scenes set to begin right away, and the film’s cast and crew — including Mark Wahlberg and Michelle Williams — all in agreement, this is an unprecedented eleventh hour change up for a film so close to its premiere.

Helbers Suspends Collection Due to Production Woes

LONDON — Paul Helbers has put his eponymous men’s wear collection on ice due to production problems and confirmed Friday that the fall 2017 collection had not been delivered to clients.
The Dutch designer cited “a considerable controversy with our production coordination platform in Italy” and said “further development of the Helbers wardrobe will be put on hold for the moment.” He indicated that there were some quality issues. “The affordable high quality of the line is what we believe part of our initial success and requires a rigorous manufacturing standard.”
Helbers said that although the brand will be unavailable on the market, “I will continue to consult on collections, style, interior decoration, photography and visual communication.”
He said his signature brand would remain loyal to the ateliers with which it has been working, and that he is currently studying “alternative set-ups for the coordination of our production and logistics. The deliberate small scale of our company is to be able to work with specialized ateliers who can craft with skill and innovation.”
Helbers launched his first 20-piece collection in January 2016 in Paris, and became known for his laid-back tailoring, rich colors and fabrics. Before going solo, he did a five-year stint as

Abbie Cornish Talks Movie Production at Elie Saab Show

PRODUCTIVE WORK: Abbie Cornish is turning her hand to movie production. The Australian actress will be producing the upcoming “The Color of Flesh,” due to begin shooting Stateside next year, she revealed at the Elie Saab show on Saturday afternoon, where she joined guests including French actress Emmanuelle Béart.
“It’s kind of fun to be able to be on the other side,” said Cornish of her new role.
She will also have a starring part in the movie. “I play the portrait painter for Marie-Antoinette; it’s a love triangle between my character, Elisa, Marie-Antoinette and Count Alexis,” she revealed.
Otherwise, Cornish has been busy of late. She has no less than six movies coming out over the next six months, including Dean Devlin’s thriller “Geostorm,” due out Oct. 20, and comic drama “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri,” set for release in November.
It was the first time in a while that Cornish had attended a fashion week event, she said. “I haven’t been doing anything like this for a few years, I’ve literally just been working. I just took two months’ holiday – I did nothing, it was amazing, but it took me a couple of weeks just to learn the art of doing nothing.”

Oscar Isaac To Play Title Role In New York Production Of ‘Hamlet’

Shakespearean tragedy has never made us feel so giddy. 

The New York Times reports that Oscar Isaac is slated to play the title role in director Sam Gold’s upcoming production of “Hamlet.” The highly anticipated staging will run at New York’s Public Theater from June 20 to Sept. 3, 2017. 

Gold, who won a Tony for his direction of Broadway’s “Fun Home,” began work on the production in 2014, which was expected to run this year at Theater for a New Audience’s Polonsky Shakespeare Center in Brooklyn. Because of artistic differences, however, between Gold and artistic director Jeffrey Horowitz, the show was pulled in June 2016. 

Now, the play, having controversially switched venues and artistic directors, is officially back on the docket. And we could picture few people better than Mr. Llewyn Davis himself to play the brooding, emo lead. 

Oh, and one more bonus: Horatio will be played by Keegan-Michael Key, of “Key and Peele,” in his first New York stage performance. According to Slate, however, Key was classically trained as a Shakespearean actor before veering into improv comedy, so our expectations are pretty high. 

Tickets will go on sale for Public members on March 9, with non-member tickets available at an unspecified later date.

Village Theatre’s ‘Cabaret’ a Vibrant, Glitzy Production That Entertains From Opening Curtain To Final Ovation

Village Theatre’s production of the classic musical Cabaret keeps audiences engaged with dynamic singing, dancing and acting throughout the show. This is not an easy task when one considers the historic timeframe of the show – the end of a gala era as the Nazis came into power in Germany.

Then, there’s all the issue of anti-Semitism, which is addressed quite pointedly with the number If You Could See Her in which the Emcee serenades and dances with his “partner” – an actress dressed in a gorilla suit and wedding dress.
2015-06-03-1433291199-6725192-CabaretVillageT.jpg
This performance of Cabaret is, however, far from as dire as the stage appears prior to the show starting. In the beginning, the Kit Kat Klub is shown as it would be after the Nazis took over, but it magically transforms into the glittery, extravagant setting where almost anything is available and possible when the Emcee enters and begins introducing “the beautiful girls and boys.”

The Emcee is brilliantly played by Jason Collins, who morphs from one lavish costume to another while weaving a plot filled with both meaning and entertainment. Collins is beyond flashy, and he maintains the mantle of master showman while keeping the show both inviting and intriguing.

The other principle player who can’t be missed is Billie Wildrick as Sally Bowles. Wildrick dances and sings with a vibrancy that leaves the songs stuck in your head days later. And these two key cast members are brilliantly supported by the other actors, the highly innovative staging and a “house band” that becomes a character in and of itself as it rolls out to center stage on a moving platform from time to time. All of this makes Village Theatre’s performance of Cabaret a show that should not be missed. It’s well worth a drive from Seattle to Issaquah (or next month to Everett).

Cabaret plays at the Village Theatre in Issaquah through July 3 before moving to the Everett Performing Arts Center where it will run from July 10 to August 2.

John Galliano Inks Production Pact

PARIS – Ahead of its fall-winter 2015 women’s show in Paris today, John Galliano said it has inked a licensing agreement with Italy’s Modalis to produce its men’s and women’s ready-to-wear.
The first collections under the new pact are to be unveiled in June for the women’s resort and men’s spring-summer 2016 seasons.
In addition, the Galliano company plans to combine its signature collection and Galliano second line into one range, positioned as a contemporary offering that “combines the brand’s history of craftsmanship and extroverted elegance with an accessible attitude and price point.”
Modalis is based in Italy’s Umbria region and was formerly known as Studio Roscini, which dates back to 1990.
The Galliano company has recently produced its collections in house in the wake of the financial troubles of its previous licensee Ittierre SpA.
John Galliano sat out recent men’s seasons as it searched for a new manufacturing partner. Bill Gaytten is John Galliano’s creative director.

Bookmaking: Editing, Design, Production


The unchallenged bible of the publishing industry, Bookmaking is the introduction to editing, design, and production for newcomers, acclaimed as the premier text for students as well as a comprehensive reference for experienced hands. First issued in 1965 and revised in 1979, it has now been thoroughly reorganized and updated to reflect the profound changes in the bookmaking process and in publishing practices in the twenty-first century. The computer-centered method of getting from the author’s conception to completed print-or electronic-book has come to dominate publishing, involving not only the setting of type but also the preparation of manuscripts, editing, illustration creation and processing, page makeup, color separation, and preparation for printing. Even more significant than its use for these individual procedures is the computer’s role in creating an integrated system that is greater than the sum of its parts. Covering all the publishing processes up to distribution, Bookmaking addresses the needs of publishing professionals, whether they do the work themselves in-house or have it done to their specifications by outside suppliers. But this new edition is not only about technological change; all aspects of bookmaking have been reconsidered. The text that served the industry for nearly three decades has been updated where appropriate, while still providing the unchanging facts and principles of book craft.
