    I know Jennifer Lawrence is playing her, but Saoirse Ronan would be a perfect Agnes Magnusdottir in Burial Rites adaptation and could win her an Oscar. It’s a period piece but it’s far removed from the kind she usually does and Agnes is such a meaty role. Lawrence is a great actor, but seems miscast imo.

    Keira Knightley and Saoirse Ronan play the trophy wife and daughter of an ailing man (Liam Neeson/Ralph Fiennes) who fight to control his business (criminal?). Could be period drama.

    Or:

    Saoirse is a charming woman scamming stupid Americans in a Martin McDonagh film. Her father (Liam Neeson) arrives from Ireland, disrupting her plans.

    Saoirse Ronan stars as Julie Andrews in Julie.

    The film, directed by Greta Gerwig, focuses on the breakthrough in Julie Andrews career during the 1960’s. Julie copes with stardom through therapy, but we also see Julie in 1997 with her botched voice surgery that would leave her forever changed.

    Have a great day if you see this!

    . Is this an Oscar vehicle for both or just one cuz I think both could win. It sounds brilliant. Write it

    Both. Although Ann-Margret would clearly have a stronger narrative unless Fisher is absolutely undeniable in her role. Because unlike Fisher, Ann-Margret is a previous nominee who hasn’t been nominated in nearly 50 years, and and is in her late 70s to boot. Not to mention that she was largely absent from the Hollywood scene in the 2000s and 2010s due to her husband’s illness. Such a film would *scream* “comeback vehicle” for her.

    Glenn Close stars as Faye Dunaway during the time that she played Katharine Hepburn in a one-woman play called ‘Tea at Five’ in Boston before she was fired.

    According to https://nypost.com/2019/07/24/faye-dunaway-fired-from-broadway-bound-tea-at-five/, scenes in the film should include:

    – Her behavior was unsettling at an early photo shoot. Someone gave her a salad for lunch and she threw it on the floor. She was watching her weight and said the salad would be better on the floor than in her hand.

    – She was frequently late for rehearsals, sometimes up to two hours. She refused to allow anyone to look at her during rehearsals, including the director and the playwright. Although she had the script for six months, sources claim she was never able to learn her lines. During the run of the play at Huntington she was fed lines and blocking through an earpiece. One source says, “98 percent of the play came through the earpiece.”

    – While in rehearsal she left what one production source called “troubling, rambling, angry” voicemails to the creative team during the middle of the night. She also insisted that no one wear white to rehearsals because it “distracts me,” she said. When she was rehearsing on stage at the Huntington no one was allowed to move in the theater because that also distracted her.

    – As she was rehearsing, she began to lose weight. She looked so emaciated that a production member called Dunaway’s former assistant for advice.

    – Over the last weekend of June she had a full on “Mommie Dearest” meltdown and demanded that staffers at the Huntington Theater get down on their hands and knees and scrub the floor of her dressing room.

    – She allegedly threw mirrors, combs and boxes of hairpins at the staff of the theater. She also pulled gray hairs out of her wig because she wanted to play a younger version of Hepburn than the playwright had written.

    – The July 10 performance was canceled moments before curtain because Dunaway slapped and threw things at crew members who were trying to put on her wig. Enraged at the cancellation, Dunaway began “verbally abusing” the crew. They were “fearful for their safety.” The producer knew they had to fire her when they had to cancel the July 10 performance because she physically and verbally abused several production members.

    Amy Adams stars in Disenchanted written by Rachel Bloom and directed by Rian Johnson, turns the Disney princess genre entirely on its head in the way only Johnson can and Adams sings a showstopping emotionally deep and funny number at the climax written only in the way Bloom can.

    I know Disenchanted was already written, but this is what I would want
