New Project!

Today is turning out to be an excellent day for Gillian news & images! Deadline have reported that Gillian is filming a new project this month! Details are posted below.

Fresh off her Golden Globe and SAG nominations for The Crown, we can reveal that Gillian Anderson is next to star in Lionsgate and director Marc Forster’s White Bird: A Wonder Story, which will begin production in the Czech Republic later this month.

White Bird: A Wonder Story is the creative companion movie drawn from the universe of the Lionsgate’s 2017 box office hit Wonder, which made more than $300 million globally.

The film charts the story of a young Jewish girl hidden away by a boy and his family in Nazi-occupied France during World War II. Anderson will play Vivienne, the woman who along with her family must make unimaginable choices. Additional casting has yet to be revealed.

The screenplay adaptation of R.J. Palacio’s graphic novel is by Mark Bomback (War for the Planet of the Apes). Forster (World War Z) returns to the studio where he directed the Oscar-winning Monster’s Ball 19 years ago.

Mandeville Films’ David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman, who produced Wonder, are also producing the new film, along with Palacio. Renée Wolfe, who is a partner in Forster’s 2DUX2, is executive producing. Alex Young is executive-producing for Mandeville.
Czech Republic, which hosts Amazon’s Carnival Row and multiple movie blockbusters, continues to be an in-demand European filming destination. Also due to shoot in the country this spring is Starz’s Dangerous Liaisons prequel series.

Anderson scored raves for her portrayal of Margaret Thatcher in Netflix smash The Crown. She previously won the Golden Globe and the Emmy Award for The X Files. She also currently stars in the Netflix’s Sex Education, which returns for a third season this year.

The actress is represented by Independent Talent Group and UTA.

‘UFO’ Trailer & Release Date!

The trailer for UFO was released several days ago, and it looks like the movie shall (finally) be released on September 4, 2018! More information about the movie itself is posted below, courtsey of SyFy Wire. View the official trailer under the cut!

To celebrate World UFO Day today, we have an exclusive trailer of the movie (yep, you guessed it) UFO, an intriguing sci-fi thriller starring Gillian Anderson, Alex Sharp, and David Strathairn, which will debut on digital and DVD Sept. 4.

Just like those observing this day in search of unidentified flying objects, the movie sets to uncover mysteries of the universe after a young student named Derek (played by Tony-winning actor Alex Sharp) investigates what he believes to be a series of extraterrestrial sightings on earth.

Helped by his advanced mathematics professor Dr. Hendricks (played by X-Files’ Anderson) and girlfriend Natalie (played by Ella Purnell) Derek races after these supposed UFO sightings with FBI special agent Franklin Ahls (played by David Strathairn) hot on his heels.

It’s billed as an edge-of-your-seat thriller, and judging by the trailer it looks like a fun ride, as well as diving deep into UFO mythology — particularly with Anderson’s character on hand to do the math.

Production on the movie began way back in December 2016 in Cincinnati, and it appears as though the project took a little while to find its way to distribution. Still, what better day to drop the trailer than today.
