Casting: The Picky Philologist and Battle Angel's Friend

Image As the information portal Deadline managed to find out, actor Ioan Griffith ("Fantastic Four", "Eternity" / Forever ) will accompany Mel Gibson and Sean Penn on the set of The Professor and the Madman , which tells the story of James Murray - professor and editor of the Oxford English Dictionary.

Griffith got the role of Henry Bradley - a neat and picky philologist who helped Murray ( Gibson ) to select words for their further compilation into a single benefit. Bradley was a very intrusive person who could easily be pissed off, but his attention to detail was of great benefit while working on the dictionary.

The tape will be based on Simon Winchester's bestseller. The director's chair will be taken by Farhad Safinia, who is familiar with Gibson from Apocalypse. The script was written by John Burman (Excalibur) and Todd Komarniki (Miracle on the Hudson) along with Safinia .


Kian Johnson ("Nashville" / Nashville ) received a key role in the film " Battle Angel " - the adaptation of the manga of the same name. The filming of the tape will be directed by Robert Rodriguez, and the main role is given to Rosa Salazar. She will play a cyborg girl found by a professor at a junkyard. She does not remember anything about her past, but at the same time she is fluent in martial arts and decides to become a bounty hunter. Johnson will embody the image of Hugo teaching the main character to play motorball. However, the guy leads a double life - at night he turns into a criminal.


Ellie Bamber (Pride & Prejudice & Zombies) joins the cast of The Nutcracker and the Four Kingdoms , a feature-length feature film based on the classic by Ernst Theodor Amadeus Hoffmann. Director Lasse Hallstrom (Chocolate) will direct the production of the film. According to the plot, one of the toys of the girl Clara (Mackenzie Foy) comes to life and opposes the evil Mouse King . Other details of the new version of the story are still kept secret. It is known that Ellie Bamber will play the role of Clara 's sister, and in addition to her, Keira Knightley, Morgan Freeman and Misty Copeland will take part in the filming.
