Andy Serkis Says Motion Capture Should Give Disabled Actors ‘Great Opportunities’

Andy Serkis Says Motion Capture Should Give Disabled Actors ‘Great Opportunities’
Andy Serkis helped pioneer the art of motion capture with his performances in “The Lord of the Rings,” “King Kong,” and “The Planet of the Apes,” and during an appearance at the recent Ibc Show in Amsterdam (via ScreenDaily) he spoke at length about the technology’s good and bad sides. One potentially controversial idea Serkis put forth is that “performance capture is the end of typecasting.” The filmmaker and actor said that, because of motion capture technology, “there should be great opportunities for disabled actors to play able-bodied characters,” but he stopped short from fully endorsing other examples.

“[With performance capture], it would be possible for an actor of color to play Abraham Lincoln and for me, as a middle-class white man, to play Martin Luther King,” Serkis said. “The question is whether that is ethically right. Diversity is hugely important so I can understand sensitivities about this.”

Toronto TV Review: ‘Mrs. Fletcher’

  • Variety
Mrs. Fletcher isn’t married — at least not anymore. The title character of HBO’s new limited series, which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival Sept. 10 ahead of an October 27 bow, hasn’t gotten around to changing her name yet, either because it’s a final fraying thread tying her to her otherwise disconnected college-age son Brendan Fletcher (Jackson White) or because she simply doesn’t have the energy. As inhabited by Kathryn Hahn, Eve enters her life as an empty-nester by defining herself against absences: She’s no longer a wife, or a full-time mom. She doesn’t find consistent fulfillment in her work at a senior center, where, in the first episode, she has to stop a well-loved resident from masturbating in public and remind him of the social contract he’s forgotten with old age. She doesn’t really date. And she’s not happy, in

‘Endings, Beginnings’ Review: Drake Doremus Starts to Get His Mojo Back With New Muse Shailene Woodley
Early in Drake Doremus’ “Endings, Beginnings,” leading lady Daphne (Shailene Woodley) makes a comment to a potential paramour about feeling as if she’s being called to do things a twenty-something might do, like travel the world or join up with the Peace Corps, youthful diversions that a thirty-something like her has no business dabbling in anymore. But it’s all the other things that Daphne spends the film dabbling in — from living in her put-together sister’s guest house or looking for a job when she has no definable skills or even, as is often the crux of a Doremus feature, engaging in dangerous and immature relationships with unsuitable partners — that make it clear which parts of her are stuck in a life she should have stopped living a decade ago.

But is that ever going to change? Doremus’ films, from the sublime “Like Crazy” and “Breathe” to the ridiculous “Newness” and “Zoe,

Woody Harrelson’s Carnage Confirmed For Venom 2

“There’s gonna be carnage.” That’s the last line of 2018’s Venom, as said by Woody Harrelson’s Cletus Kasady, introduced in the post-credits scene of the movie. Spider-Man fans knew what this meant, too: Venom’s nemesis, Carnage, will be arriving in the sequel. Sure enough, this has been the subject of a lot of reports and rumors ever since but now, at last, we’ve had it officially confirmed by someone working on Venom 2 that Cletus will definitely be back.

Though Kelly Marcel, who contributed to the first film, is penning the script, Venom 2 will have some major changes behind the scenes, with director Ruben Fleischer being replaced by Andy Serkis.

Venom 2 Reunites Director Andy Serkis with Oscar-Winning Cinematographer Robert Richardson
So far, the sequel to last year's comic book anti-hero adventure Venom is shaping up rather intriguingly. Following on from the recent news that Black Panther star and motion capture maestro Andy Serkis will be sitting in the director's chair, we now know who will be working their magic on the cinematography for Venom 2, and it is another very interesting choice.

The three time Academy Award Winning Robert Richardson will be joining Serkis on this gooey comic book endeavour, as our hero Eddie Brock returns with his symbiotic companion to fight crime, take names, and more than likely eat a few heads along the way. Richardson has worked a vast array of critically acclaimed, wonderful films such as Martin Scorsese's Shutter Island, Oliver Stone's biographical wartime drama Born on the Fourth of July and has worked in collaboration with director Quentin Tarantino on various projects including Inglourious Basterds
