Olivia Wilde chats from the set of “Cowboys & Aliens,” which puts her on screen with Daniel Craig, Harrison Ford, Sam Rockwell and Paul Dano.
Wilde suggests we can all learn something from the film, and it’s clear she relished the opportunity to work with seriously prestigious on-screen talent. Revealing a desire to direct, it seems that opportunity will come soon for the rising star. Though, with five films out this year, plus “House,” plus another three films slated for 2012, included the rumored Linda Lovelace project, we doubt she’ll find the time for a little while.
Those who want to keep up with Olivia Wilde’s ex-husband’s work should check out this music video of Alexander Ebert’s song “Truth.” Ruspoli directed the music video for Ebert (also known as Edward Sharpe), dividing the song’s story into three parts.
When I sat down for a chat with Paul Giamatti in Austin in March ahead of the release of the realistic (and brilliant) “Win Win,” he confessed to loving swords and sandals movies, and had just taken his son to see “The Eagle,” starring six-pack’er Channing Tatum.
Well, it appears that Giamatti has his own wig-wearing sojourn into the medieval with the film “Ironclad,” currently in limited release, and co-starring Kate Mara (“127 Hours,” “Iron Man 2″), whose sister won the much sought role of Lisbeth Salander in David Fincher’s “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” franchise.
Take a look at the film’s trailer/music video below. Swords, sandals, castles, catapults and a damsel in distress, “Ironclad” might not go too far at the box-office, but sometimes it is fun watching people get medieval. Giamatti let me know that his mother took him to watch inappropriate films like “Clockwork Orange” as a kid, and now the guy likes slinging firebombs on film. Seems to make sense.
