Screen Gems has closed a deal for U.S. distribution rights, and Game Of Thrones‘ Charles Dance and Lena Headey have joined the cast. The film stars Lily James, Sam Riley, Bella Heathcoate, Jack Huston, Douglas Booth, Matt Smith, and Suki Waterhouse.
Screen Gems seems a strong match for this literary mash-up that begins with the tangled relationship between lovers from different social classes in 19th-century England, and is complicated by a full-on outbreak of zombies. That plot embellishment escaped Austen but was added by Seth Grahame-Smith, and it probably would have propelled me to actually finish Austen’s book had she thought of it in the first place. Latest script is by Steers.
The picture has been put together by Cross Creek’s Brian Oliver, Sierra/Affinity and Lauren Selig. Along with the Screen Gems deal, they’ve sold Latin America, Scandinavia, Eastern Europe and Iceland to Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions. Sierra/Affinity is selling other international territories.
The film is produced by Allison Shearmur, Sean McKittrick, Natalie Portman, Annette Savitch, Marc Butan, Brian Oliver and Tyler Thompson. Exec producing are Lauren Selig, Aleen Keshishian, Ted Hamm and Sue Baden Powell. CAA packaged this one and brokered the deal.
Seven years after she played Queen Gorgo in Zack Snyder’s 300, Lena Headey returns to the role in sequel 300: Rise Of An Empire.
Also starring Eva Green as the formidable Artemisia, plus Sullivan Stapleton as her adversary Themistocles, 300: ROAE transfers the action to the ocean for a series of stunning sea scraps.
We caught up with Headey to find out what it was like to return to the crazy world of 300…
How is it to return to the role of Queen Gorgo after seven years?
It was very nice to return. She’s slightly older. This time she holds a sword and has a different story.
Zack said this time your mandate was to fight…
Yeah, I was, like “Give me a fight. Come on.” You know, because the last movie I sat around while the boys did it all. And I’m a tomboy, so I was slightly jealous.
It’s like if someone came in the room in a ball gown I’d be, like, “Eh, it’s pretty.” [shrugs] And then if someone was, like, “I’m doing a big fight.” I’d be like, “I want to do that.” So I did a little one.
How was it to play off the first movie, to get into the script that that Kurt [Johnstad] and Zack [Snyder] crafted – that sets up this parallel storyline. It’s not really a sequel, it’s taking place around the same time.
It’s slicing it in a different way and it was kind of interesting for me because you didn’t really see the result of Gorgo losing Leonidas. In the original you have the moment where David Wenham’s character comes back and she finds out.
Hello everyone, I’m Claudia and I’m the new owner of Lena Headey Online. I previously used to run a Lena site (Magnificent Lena) but closed it a while ago. But Mrs. Headey is such irresistible!!! AliKat had to step back for personal reasons so this time I took my chance to jump on and run it. I have so far worked only to fix bugs of malwares and such things, so not much to update but I will be go updating in the following days.
One thing you probably will notice is all dead links in menu, that’s because I’m working on converting php pages into here, so it takes some time. Also we’re back to the old look but that won’t last much, just the time for me to fix and work on new themes.
In addition in the photogallery you will not find a Candids section anymore. I know that many of you enjoy the candids but I do not. I do not find them pretty, interesting or attractive and rather than having them stored I preferred to completely remove for the good and respect of Lena.
It also won’t be anymore a video section dedicated to that, because for now, I don’t have time to maintain that and I won’t have an unused script sitting there to upgrade. But don’t worry the previous uploaded videos won’t be deleted. I’ve zipped them into this video folder so you can download them at any time and enjoy. You might not like these changes and as a viewer I understand your point of view, but as a webmaster since 5 years with 28 fansites I can assure you I do all of these in the interest of the site, not to be hacked, deleted or behind in updates.
Enjoy your stay!
Come and say hello and help raise money for this great organization ❤️❤️❤️❤️ pic.twitter.com/CYAp58LHDs

Game Of Thrones bosses have been given permission to shoot Lena Headey’s topless scene in Croatia as long as the actress stays away from a local church.
Producers of the hit fantasy series were told this week (beg25Aug14) that their plans to film a racy scene in Dubrovnik showing Headey’s character walking out of the Church of St. Nicholas nude had been rejected by local officials.
Now they have been informed they are welcomed to shoot Headey, as her conniving character Cersei Lannister, topless as long as she does not enter the church, according to Tmz.com.
The scene will be included in the show’s forthcoming season five, which is expected to premiere in the U.S. next April (2015).
