    Movie is getting an exceptional cast. Seems like the Mcdormand era will continue. Let’s see how fast people start complaining that she gets all the roles 🤣😂

    anyone read the book?

    I’m manifesting this into reality. Actually, I would love even Rooney Mara, Ben Wishaw and Jessie Buckley to be in conversation. WHAT A TREAT to see such a star cast coming together!!!

    I bet actresses in their early/mid- 50s/60s are jealous of her 😂 But seriously, a few years ago who would have thought that Frances McDormand would be in so many baity projects?!!

    McDormand didn’t get the role, she bought the book’s rights to produce as a movie and star in it. She created her own opportunity.

    Jessie Buckley deservedly nabbing roles in big time productions left and right! We love to see it.

    She’s the best of her generation! Still waiting for her to play Janis Joplin in a biopic and win an Oscar for it.

    Frances is true to her word. I’m more excited about her second Oscar as the producer than about her 4th as an actress (which will happen eventually too).

    Abso-fu**ing-lutely!

    She should have been nominated for Wild Rose. She would have even been a deserving winner for it!

    Mcdormand not campaign. That works in her favor. Oscar voters adore her because she never campaigns.

    What a cast. This can’t possibly be bad.

    Does anyone know when this will shoot? Still this year or 2022? I know Buckley will be in a new production of Cabaret at the West End starting in November

    This is a rare case where Oscar voters show a good taste. What an effortless legend and queen! Those two titles are getting attached to anyone, from (very few) really deserving to massive try-hards and more-famous-for-Insta-than-roles, but McDormand BTFO’s them all. Won her third without any special (politically current or “it’s her time for the 3d”) narrative, without tweeting Oprah’s praise, without having political figures tweet their support, without feuding with journos who didn’t find her attractive, without AACTRA – AACTRA!!!! – win for crying out loud! She just did a great job and won two golds in one night. Dangerously based legendary queen. :applause:

    I know Buckley will be in a new production of Cabaret at the West End starting in November

    When Cabaret was revived on Broadway in 2014, Michelle Williams played Sally Bowles, and she was replaced by Emma Stone, and then Sienna Miller. In a career retrospective SAG-AFTRA interview about four months ago, Carey Mulligan talked about how her childhood dream had always been to star in a musical but she said she didn’t have a good enough singing voice to to do so, which is why she switched her focus to drama. The interviewer suggested she should star in a revival of Cabaret directed by someone she already knows—- Baz Luhrmann. Mulligan commented that she DOES know the score because she sings it in the shower all the time, and then smiled and ruefully joked: “Note to self— email Baz Luhrmann.” In the Christopher Isherwood novel on which the musical was based, it was clear that Sally Bowles wasn’t supposed to be a great singer, but does need to be played by a great dramatic actress, which might be why Judi Dench was so good when she originated the role in the 1968 West End production. (There are some clips of her on YouTube.) Anyway, this is a long way to go to say that I sort of highjacked this thread to observe that I REALLY hope Carey Mulligan replaces Jessie Buckley when she leaves Cabaret, but that’s probably VERY unlikely to happen.
