THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER: WandaVision star Elizabeth Olsen is headed to HBO Max for her next TV project.

Olsen will topline Love and Death, a limited series about a notorious murder in Texas in 1980. The series from Lionsgate Television counts David E. Kelley, Nicole Kidman and director Lesli Linka Glatter among its producing team.

Olsen will play Candy Montgomery, who was convicted of murdering her neighbor and friend, Betty Gore, with an ax.

“This is a gripping story about the frustrations and desires of two women in a small town that culminates in a terrible act of violence,” said HBO Max head of original content Sarah Aubrey. “We are thrilled to be partnering with David, Lesli, Nicole, and Per [Saari] and incredibly fortunate to have Elizabeth at the center of our story to bring out all the layers of Candy that make this story so unforgettable.”

Love and Death is the second project about the Montgomery-Gore case to attract a high-profile star. Elisabeth Moss is attached to star in Candy, a limited series that’s in development at Universal Studio Group’s UCP from The Act’s Robin Veith and Nick Antosca.

Love and Death is based on the book Evidence of Love: A True Story of Passion and Death in the Suburbs by John Bloom and Jim Atkinson and a two-part Texas Monthly series by the same authors, “Love & Death in Silicon Prairie.”

“We cannot imagine a more perfect artist to play the leading role of Candy than Elizabeth Olsen,” said Lionsgate TV Group chairman Kevin Beggs. “Her talent, charisma and energy can bewitch audiences like no other. We’re proud to be collaborating with a world-class creative team of Lesli, David and Nicole on this thrilling and intriguing series and to bring another exciting premium property to our partners at HBO Max.”

The project will reunite Big Little Lies and The Undoing’s Kelley, Kidman and Saari. Kelley executive produces via his David E. Kelley Productions along with Kidman and Saari for Blossom Films; Emmy winner Glatter (Homeland); Scott Brown and Megan Creydt for Texas Monthly; and Matthew Tinker, Michael Klick and Helen Verno.

Olsen is repped by Gersh, Brillstein Entertainment Partners and Sloane Offer; Kelley by CAA and attorney Michael Gendler; Kidman by CAA, Media Talent Group and Jackoway Austen; Glatter by CAA, Anonymous Content and Lichter Grossman; and Texas Monthly by CAA.


DEADLINE: Despite the success of WandaVision on Disney+, Marvel Boss Kevin Feige said today at his first TCA that some series will get second or third seasons, while others will hand off to a feature film, and in the case of a WandaVision season 2, Feige has no plans yet. Instead Feige said that season 1 of WandaVision will hand off straight to the upcoming MCU feature sequel Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

“I’ve been at Marvel too long to say a definite ‘No’ to anything as far as a second season of WandaVision,” said Feige.

“Lizzie Olsen will go from WandaVision to the Doctor Strange film,” said the Marvel Boss.

Feige said that Marvel is mapping out their Disney+ series like they’ve mapped out their MCU.

“The fun of the MCU is obviously all the crossover we can do between series, between films. So it will vary based on the story. Sometimes it will go into a season 2, sometimes it will go into a feature and back into a series,” said Feige.

“Sometimes, and yet to be announced, we’re thinking of and planning second seasons for some of the upcoming series,” he added.

Ms. Marvel, which is expected to debut on Disney+ later this year, will hand-off to the Captain Marvel 2 movie, Feige also emphasized today.

“The goal is to expand the fans of Marvel,” he said.

COMIC BOOK – In addition to her own Disney+ series, the Scarlet Witch Elizabeth Olsen has also been confirmed to co-star in Marvel Studios’ upcoming Doctor Strange sequel, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, which is arguably one of the coolest film titles ever given in the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Benedict Cumberbatch will, of course, return as the Sorcerer Supreme and the film has also been rumored to feature the return of Benedict Wong as Wong, although he wasn’t formally announced during tonight’s presentation.

While the film is still in the pre-production phase as it won’t debut until May 7, 2021, director Scott Derrickson did share a chilling tease, “We are going to make the first scary MCU film,” although Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige did jokingly respond with “It’s gonna be PG-13 and you’re going to like it!”

DOCTOR STRANGE IN THE MULTIVERSE OF MADNESS

Feige introduced the second film in the “Doctor Strange” franchise, “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness,” and called the director, Scott Derrickson, and star Benedict Cumberbatch to the stage to a rousing welcome.

In a surprise twist, Feige brought out Elizabeth Olsen, who also stars in “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness,” and they talked about how “WandaVision”—the Disney+ series that Olsen will star in as Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch—connects directly to the feature-film storyline.

“Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” hits theaters on May 7, 2021.

VARIETY – Disney is enlisting Earth’s Mightiest Heroes as the company prepares to launch its upcoming streaming service. The entertainment giant is in early development on an ambitious plan for a number of limited series centered on popular characters from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. These series will likely include shows centered on Loki and the Scarlet Witch, along with other beloved superheroes who have yet to appear in their own standalone movies.

Marvel and Disney had no comment.

There’s an important distinction from other Marvel small screen efforts, however. The actors who portrayed these heroes and villains in the Avengers films and their spin-offs, such as Tom Hiddleston and Elizabeth Olsen, are expected to play them in the streaming shows. Moreover, though sources close to the production are staying mum on the cost of the programming, the budgets are expected to be hefty rivaling those of a major studio productions. Each series is expected to include six to eight episodes. Marvel Studios will produce the shows and Kevin Feige, the guru of all things MCU, is expected to take a hands-on role in their development.

The pricey gamble with one of the crown jewels of the Disney film empire is a sign of how much the company has riding on its direct-to-consumer platform. As companies such as Netflix and Amazon continue to grow their user base, Disney is trying to find a way to establish a toehold in the streaming revolution upending Hollywood. The company has kept the details of the service close to the vest, beyond saying that it will likely cost less than Netflix and will launch at some point in late 2019.

Disney has already started to unwind its licensing deals in order to put as much premium content on the platform as possible. That’s meant that the company is forfeiting billions of dollars in profit, as well as shouldering the cost of developing the technology. The company has announced a number of high-profile projects, including a Star Wars series overseen by “Jungle Book” director Jon Favreau, a show based on “High School Musical,” and a live-action “Lady and the Tramp” film. The company also plans to offer several new releases when it launches, including its live-action “Dumbo” film and “Captain Marvel.”

Many of these projects are expensive bets. The Star Wars series will reportedly cost $100 million and the movies are expected to carry budgets north of $25 million. However, Disney has to spend big to make an impression. Netflix, its main rival, has 125 million subscribers globally and has lured top talent like Ryan Murphy (“American Horror Story”), Kenya Barris (“Black-ish”), and Shonda Rhimes (“Grey’s Anatomy”) to its platform with record-setting deals.

THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER – The ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ star joins Ed Harris and Jason Sudeikis in the upcoming road trip drama set around the last shop in the U.S. to develop Kodachrome film.

 

Elizabeth Olsen is set to star in Kodachrome, appearing alongside Ed Harris and Jason Sudeikis in the upcoming drama.

 

The actress had been previously linked to the project before Cannes, where The Solution Entertainment Group launched it in the market (CAA are repping North America), but her name was subsequently removed.

 

Set to start shooting in Toronto on Aug. 28, Kodachrome tells the story of a record label boss who embarks on a road trip across the U.S. in order to fulfill his father’s dying wish and have a roll of Kodachrome film developed, only to find there’s just one remaining shop accepting them. Bruce Greenwood, Dennis Haysbert and Wendy Crewson will also star in the film, to be directed by Mark Raso (Copenhagen) from a script by Jonathan Tropper. Tropper previously adapted his novel This is Where I Leave You with Warner Brothers, which starred Tina Fey, Jason Bateman, Jane Fonda, Adam Driver, Corey Stoll and Rose Byrne.

 

Kodachrome is being produced by Gotham Group’s Ellen Goldsmith-Vein and Eric Robinson and 21 Laps Entertainment’s Dan Levine and Shawn Levy, alongside Topper and Leon Clarance of Motion Picture Capital, which is fully financing the film. Jo Monk, Laure Vaysse and Dan Cohen are exec producing.

 

The film joins a growing list of films on the slate of Motion Picture Capital, which only this week announced Steel Country, a U.S.-set thriller to star Andrew Scott (Spectre, Pride) and recent Olivier best actress winner Denise Gough (’71, Jimmy’s Hall), which went into production Friday. Simon Fellows (Malice in Wonderland) directs, while Gareth Ellis-Unwin (The King’s Speech) produces alongside Clarance.

 

Other films on MPC’s upcoming slate include U.K. drama Hampstead, starring Diane Keaton and Brendon Gleeson, currently in post-production, and sci-fi film The Titan, starring Sam Worthington, Taylor Schilling and Tom Wilkinson, also in post.

 

Meanwhile, MPC’s completed projects include horror film The Crucifixion, written by The Conjuring’s Chad and Cary Hayes and starring Sophie Cookson (Kingsman: The Secret Service); thriller Come and Find Me, starring Aaron Paul and Annabelle Wallis; and comedy The Boy Downstairs, starring Girls’ Zosia Mamet.

 

MPC, which was also behind Netflix series Sense8, was set up by Clarance in 2011 with the backing of Indian giant Reliance Big Entertainment, and claims to have arranged financing for productions totaling $200 million to date.
