Jason Statham Actioner Beekeeper Adds Jeremy Irons, Emmy

The upcoming Jason Statham action outing, The Beekeeper, has added a host of talent to its supporting cast. Revealed by Deadline, The Beekeeper has attached Oscar winner, Watchmen, and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice star Jeremy Irons to proceedings alongside The Umbrella Academy star Emmy Raver-Lampman, Bright and Black Summer actor Bobby Naderi, and The Hunger Games and Future Man star Josh Hutcherson.

The report also reveals that The Beekeeper, which will find Jason Statham on wonderfully familiar ground as a man on a quest for revenge, has now begun filming in the United Kingdom.

Suicide Squad and Training Day director David Ayer will helm Jason Statham’s next foray into action, with the filmmaker working from a script by Kurt Wimmer, who is best known for Law Abiding Citizen, Equilibrium, and Salt.

The Beekeeper was announced at the end of last year and has been described as a “fast-paced action-thriller, which is steeped in the mythology of beekeeping.” Yes, that’s right, beekeeping. Thus, The Beekeeper will follow a man’s personal journey of vengeance, which takes on national stakes after he is revealed to be a former operative of a powerful and clandestine organization known as the ‘Beekeepers’ — which sounds tailor-made for a Jason Statham vehicle.

“Having collaborated with Jason on Wrath Of Man and Operation Fortune, and with David on Fury, we are fortunate to partner with these masters of the new action genre to bring Kurt’s brilliant script to the first installment of this franchise,” Miramax CEO Bill Block said in a statement when the project was announced. “The Bee Keeper explores universal themes with an unconventional story that will have fans sitting on the edge of their seats,” Block previously said of the somewhat mysterious project. “We’re excited to bring another iconic and irresistible film to audiences around the globe.”

Jason Statham Continues His Tenure as a No-Nonsense Action Hero

Jason Statham has been spotted filming in a Milton Keynes village along with film crews and American helicopters this week Filming of a new blockbuster action thriller starring Jason Statham has started this week in Tyringham, near Newport Pagnell, Milton Keynes. The filming is taking place in Tyringham Hall, a privately owned 18th century stately home in the village.

Videos show the Hall waving an American flag, with film crews and helicopters reported on site. The Hall is being used for the filming of The Beekeeper, a new action thriller directed by David Ayers, known for his work on Suicide Squad.

Jason Statham is starring in the film as well as producing alongside director Ayers, Miramax and Cedar Park Entertainment. Other cast members include Academy Award winner Jeremy Irons, Hunger Games star Josh Hutcherson, and Emmy Raver-Lampman of Umbrella Academy fame.

The Beekeeper, written by Kurt Wimmer, follows Jason Statham’s character on a campaign for revenge as he is discovered to have been a former operative of the secretive and powerful network known as ‘The Beekeepers’. The film is also rumoured to be steeped in the tradition of beekeeping, but not much else is known about the plot so far.

Most Popular Tyringham Hall has been the location for several films and television series in the past, including Killing Eve, starring Jodie Comer and Sandra Oh, and Gambit, featuring Cameron Diaz, Alan Rickman and Colin Firth. It is understood that the Hall will feature as an American embassy in the Beekeeper, which started production in London last month.One Tyringham resident said: “It’s all quite exciting.

We have the American flag flying on the hall and huge American helicopters landing. Nobody has seen Jason Statham yet though, which is a shame… Hopefully he’ll be here and we’ll get a glimpse.”

‘I am officially off the market’: When Margot Robbie revealed she made the ‘conscious’ decision of not dating actors

Margot Robbie revealed her decision to not date actors because of the media scrutiny that came with a public relationship of two high-profile actors
Back in 2015, A-lister Margot Robbie made a declaration that she would not be dating any actors. The actress may have alluded to her fiance Tom Ackerley, who she married the following year in 2016. In an exclusive interview with Marie Claire, she revealed that being in a relationship as an actor herself came with its own set of challenges. She believed that dating someone who was popular would add on to the media scrutiny.

Margot Robbie opened up on why she made a conscious decision to not date actorsTalking to Marie Claire, she claimed, “I am officially off the market.” She then shared the reasoning behind her decision and added, “I made a conscious decision not to date actors.” She continued to explain, “But not because I hate actors. That’s a nasty generalization to make, and that’s not the case. People take such an interest in your love life when you have a profile, it puts a lot of stress on a relationship.”
The Barbie actress continued, “So two people with profiles, I figure it’s just double the amount of scrutiny, and I’d like to avoid that at all costs.” This came after reports of her locking lips with Tarzan co-star Alexander Skarsgard started making rounds. It was reported that she was caught kissing the actor during the Sundance Film Festival.

Margot Robbie revealed she opted for a minimal lifestyle even after becoming an actorIn the interview, Robbie also opened up about how she was adapting to fame. She shared, “I have a normal 24-year-old life. If I were a waitress, I’d probably have the exact same lifestyle. I’d go to the same clubs I go to already, live in the same house with the same housemates, hang out with the same people.”
However, Margot Robbie tied the knot with Tom Ackerley who is an English producer and actor. The duo met on the sets of 2013 movie Suite Francaise where Tom was working as an assistant director. Post marriage, both of them launched their production company LuckyChap Entertainment.

‘Rocky’ Was Quite Different In His Original Screenplay, Sylvester Stallone Claims

Sylvester Stallone took his friend’s advice on a rewrite of the original screenplay to Rocky. A few tweaks later, he was on his way to major success.
In the new Netflix documentary Sly, Stallone discussed how he initially conceived of the project, which had a much harder edge. In the early version, Rocky was depicted as a “thuggish” character, inspired by Martin Scorsese’s crime drama, Mean Streets.

But Stallone’s perspective changed when a friend read the script and thought the boxer was too cruel for audiences to actually care about him.
Stallone recalled her crying.

“She goes, ‘I hate Rocky. I hate him. He’s cruel. He hits people. He beats them up.’”
Stallone took it to heart, and asked what he could do to soften the character.

“I said, ‘what if you stop short of it?’ Like, maybe he almost did. He could have, that’s his job, but he doesn’t?’ ‘That’d be nice,’” he added. “I said, ‘What if he had a girlfriend or something?’ ‘Yeah, that’s nice.’ So I go back, start writing that: ‘Girlfriend. Nice.’”
$117 million in box office later, a franchise was born.

Stallone also revealed that actor Dolph Lundgren sent him to the hospital during one fight scene in Rocky IV.
“Dolph Lundgren… he pulverized me,” Stallone says in the documentary. “Later that night, my heart started to swell—which happens when the heart hits the chest—and then my blood pressure went up to 260, and they thought I was going to be talking to angels. Next thing I know, I’m in intensive care, where I’m surrounded by nuns, and I thought, ‘OK, that’s curtains.’”
Stallone was in the hospital for nine days following the incident, praying for “one more round.”
“For the first minute of the fight, it is going to be a free-for-all,” Stallone told Lundgren. The Swedish actor joked in a separate interview that all he did was “obey orders,” explaining, “[Stallone] was the boss. I did what he told me.”
Doctors allegedly told Stallone that he received a blow to the ribs that made his heart rattle around in his ribcage, a condition typically seen in head-on collisions. “I did hit a bus, of sorts,” Stallone joked.
