My Cousin Rachel – Principal Photography to commence in April

2016-03-31_18.15.22

According to ComingSoon.net, Principal Photography on Sam’s latest project My Cousin Rachel, alongside Rachel Weisz will begin on April 4th. Filming will begin in England, before moving to Italy and wrapping in mid-June. It will also star his The Riot Club co-star Holliday Grainger, along with Iain Glen & Simon Russell Beale.

Adapted from the classic Daphne Du Maurier novel of the same name, My Cousin Rachel tells the story of Philip Ashley (Claflin), a young Englishman who plots revenge against his mysterious, beautiful cousin, believing that she murdered his guardian. But his feelings become complicated as he finds himself falling under the beguiling spell of her charms. It was previously adapted for screen in 1952 & starred Richard Burton alongside Olivia de Havilland.

Fox Searchlight Pictures is behind the remake, which will be directed by Roger Michell & produced by Kevin Loader with Anita Overland as co-producer. Roger Michell is quoted as saying “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.”

We must admit that we are very excited for this project too! It sounds like another completely different & challenging role for Sam & we will be sure to keep an eye out for further news & updates as filming begins!



Me Before You – Trailer/Poster/Stills

Me Before You

After months of patiently waiting we have finally been given our first glimpse of what we have to look forward to in June with the release of Me Before You. Firstly, on Tuesday 2nd February, Jojo Moyes tweeted us our very first glimpse of the stunning movie poster! Classy & beautiful, it shows Sam as Will in his wheelchair with Louisa on his lap, wearing her famous red dress. The hashtag #LiveBoldly is emblazoned across the bottom, something which the book certainly tries to teach us how to do. Along with this, thanks to USA Today, we were also given a glimpse of some incredible stills from the film too!

Then, on Wednesday 3rd, we were given our first glimpse of the beautiful trailer. And it doesn’t disappoint. Jojo herself said “It’s about as close to the book as we could get without actually pasting pages of it onto the screen.” And we have to agree. Sam is perfect as Will, as is Emilia as Lou. We are so excited & cannot wait for June! No wonder Sam, Jojo & the rest of the cast are so proud, It looks like it is going to be incredible. Watch the gorgeous full length trailer below.

 

Warner Bros. Pictures, New Line Cinema and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures are thrilled to present the first trailer and one-sheet for the eagerly anticipated adaptation of Jojo Moyes’ best-selling novel ME BEFORE YOU. Starring Emilia Clarke, Sam Claflin, Matthew Lewis, Jenna Coleman and Charles Dance, ME BEFORE YOU will be released in cinemas on June 3.

Oftentimes you find love where you least expect it.  Sometimes it takes you where you never expected to go…

Louisa “Lou” Clark (Clarke) lives in a quaint town in the English countryside.  With no clear direction in her life, the quirky and creative 26-year-old goes from one job to the next in order to help her tight-knit family make ends meet.   Her normally cheery outlook is put to the test, however, when she faces her newest career challenge.  Taking a job at the local “castle,” she becomes caregiver and companion to Will Traynor (Claflin), a wealthy young banker who became wheelchair bound in an accident two years prior, and whose whole world changed dramatically in the blink of an eye.  No longer the adventurous soul he once was, the now cynical Will has all but given up.  That is until Lou determines to show him that life is worth living.  Embarking together on a series of adventures, both Lou and Will get more than they bargained for, and find their lives—and hearts—changing in ways neither one could have imagined.

The film was originally given a June 2016 release.

And now it seems they have had a change of heart, moving it back to its original June 3rd release date.

We are very much looking forward to seeing Sam in this role and cannot wait for June!



British GQ’s 50 Best Dressed Men in Britain 2016

Sam was recently named by British GQ as one of the 50 best-dressed men in Britain 2016! Both the magazine editors themselves and Stuart Vevers, executive director of fashion brand Coach had some very complimentary things to say about our fave guy;

“Sam brings a fresh take to British classicism with traditional pieces – cardigans, jeans – styled with a cool but dishevelled attitude. His look is tailored and slouchy, smart and scruffy, all at the same time.” Stuart Vevers, executive creative director, Coach.

GQ says: His role in the Hunger Games films has made him a huge star and he has the looks and style to stay the distance for many years to come.

Congratulations Sam! Totally deserved! Of course he is always number 1 in our eyes!

According to ScreenDaily, Sam is attached to star in the screen adaptation of Journey’s End, a World War I classic. We look forward to hearing more about this potential new project:

“Sam Claflin is attached to star as Captain Stanhope in the screen adaptation of R.C. Sheriff’s WWI classic play Journey’s End.

Set in the trenches over four days in 1918, Journey’s End follows a group of soldiers as they prepare for an enemy attack with new recruit Raleigh joining the company commanded by 20 year old Captain Stanhope, his former childhood friend and hero, who has changed almost beyond recognition following harrowing service at the front.

The film will be produced by Guy de Beaujeu and Simon Reade (Private Peaceful), from the latter’s screenplay adaptation.

UK sales outfit Metro International will be selling the project at the AFM and is understood to be in talks with an A-list director to shoot the film in the UK next year. The anticipated project has been mooted for a number of years but faced delays due to complications surrounding rights ownership.

[…] Claflin, whose currency continues to rise, recently shot Universal’s Snow White And The Huntsman sequel The Huntsman and is currently filming Lone Scherfig’s Their Finest Hour And A Half opposite Gemma Arterton”.

UPDATE – October 2016

Confirmation that Sam will begin shooting this film in Autumn 2016. We are so excited for this project – yet another exciting & challenging role for Sam!
