Confirmed: Once Upon a Time in Hollywood to Premiere at Cannes – May 2, 2019

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood Joins Cannes Competition Roster

by Elsa Keslassy | Variety | May 2, 2019

We reported earlier here that Once Upon a Time in Hollywood may be premiering at the Cannes Film Festival. Now, according to Variety, it’s official. We hope Damian attends as part of the “…cast in tow.” See below.

The suspense is over: Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood will indeed have its world premiere and compete at the Cannes Film Festival, the fest announced Thursday.

The star-studded movie has been widely anticipated as a festival highlight but wasn’t included in Cannes’ official selection announcement on April 18. Artistic director Thierry Fremaux told journalists several times that day that he hoped for post-production on Tarantino’s film to be completed in time for the film to be shown at the festival. Fremaux said Tarantino was eager to be back at Cannes and was working hard to finish the film by May, which was a challenge because it was shot in 35mm, which takes longer to edit than digital film, and is slated for a July release.

Damian Scheduled to Appear in Murder Mystery Play – April 2, 2019

Whodunnit: A Theatrical Murder Mystery

by Press Association | Ludlow Advertiser | April 2, 2019

Gillian Anderson, Jim Broadbent and Damian Lewis appear in Park Theatre’s Whodunnit Unrehearsed. They are among the stars appearing in a new play – without having rehearsed or seen a script – at London’s Park Theatre this summer.

Whodunnit (Unrehearsed) will see a different guest performer step onstage each night with a rehearsed ensemble cast of a scripted murder mystery play, despite not having had any direction prior to their appearance. The only direction will come via a hidden earpiece to receive instructions as they attempt to solve the crime in real time. The mystery is not so much who the murderer is, but who the inspector will be. The audiences won’t know which celebrity is appearing each night until the start.

The Evening Standard corroborates stating,

“The actors all appear as the inspector in Whodunnit [Unrehearsed] and will be sent on stage without a script to join the rest of the cast and identify the killer.”

Described as a “murder mystery spoof” with “one hell of a twist”, the play is set in an isolated manor against the backdrop of a brewing storm. The setting is a classic 1950s murder mystery, an isolated manor, a body and a cast of characters that includes the Lord of the Manor, his wayward daughter, the housekeeper, and her son who is in love with the daughter. Then a mysterious stranger arrives.

Whodunnit (Unrehearsed) will be narrated by Sir Ian McKellen and Dame Judi Dench as a different celebrity appears each night.

Others confirmed to be taking part include Gyles Brandreth, Catherine Tate, Jim Broadbent, Simon Callow, Ronan Keating, Maureen Lipman, Juliet Stevenson, Tim Vine, Bradley Walsh, Adrian Dunbar, Matthew Broderick, and Meera Syal.

The stars are donating their time to support a fundraising effort, with money raised going towards the cost of keeping the Park Theatre – a registered charity – open to the public.
