Crimson Peak is featured on Empire Magazine‘s October issue, titled ‘Winter Preview’ and I’ve added scans to the picture archive. There’s articles on few pages, from which the ones dedicated to Mia I decided to write here. Note to not copy it, because it’s been transcript-written by me myself! If you see any typing errors please let me know! Click on thumbnails below to proceed to galley and check the scans out.

Mia Wasikowska is coughing, softly at first, then gradually it becomes rasping, hacking throat-burner as her embattled heroine, Edith Cushing, stumbles out of the stifling confines of Allerdale hall into a drift of fake snow. It flurries around her as the coughing gets harsher, until finally, battered by the elements, she retreats into the main hall, where the walls are belching up blood-red clay from the mines below. “It’s pretty physical. The continuity of the cough is tough – is there too much coughing? They’re blowing all that shit around and you end up inhaling it, which helps. but it’s kind of a pain in the ass. No more sick characters after this. Only healthy, angry people”, says Wasikowska. 

A sensetive soul who can see the presence of the many spirits that roam Allerdale Hall, Edith is far from being the conventional scream queen.

“She’s a very intelligent and strong character, but one who finds it hard to accept any help at the beginning of the movie”, says Del Toro. “She came from Edith Wharton. (her surname, of course, came from Hammer horror legend, Peter Cushing) I was thinking about a girl, at the right moment when the suffragists are succeeding, who still has to fight the notion of what a young woman needs to be”, he continues.

Swept off her feet by Hiddleston’s dashing, Byronic Sharpe (“Women also have their bad boy phase,” laughs Mia). It’s not long before Edith realises Crimson Peak may be the last place she ever sees. And it might not be the ghosts that get her.

“For Edith, it’s about learning to fear the living, not the dead”, says Mia.

Why Director Sophie Barthes Felt Compelled to Bring ‘Madame Bovary’ to the Big Screen For a Modern Audience

Barthes breathes new life into Gustave Flaubert’s classic tale of desire. Gustave Flaubert’s classic novel Madame Bovary is no stranger to the big screen, as the 1865 book (impressively enough, it was Flaubert’s debut novel) has been translated to film at least seven times over the decades, including a Jean Renoir-directed version from 1934 and a breathless, Isabelle Huppert-starring 1991 take from Claude Chabrol. But that didn’t stop filmmaker Sophie Barthes from wanting to make it her own.

For her version, Barthes abstained from trying to turn the story of a brutally unsatisfied woman — Madame Bovary herself — into an overly modern tale about shame and the consumption of material goods, instead relying on the strength of Flaubert’s original story. The result is a mostly faithful take on the novel, which sees Mia Wasikowska memorably taking up the role of Emma Bovary, a once-pious young woman in provincial France who grows weary of her life as the wife of doctor, ultimately seeking out more (and more) in the form of various lovers and a growing appetite for material goods (particularly sumptuous gowns, lovingly brought to the screen by costume designers Christian Gasc and Valerie Ranchoux). click to read more »

Click to view full size imageBrimstone has been putting together a pretty solid ensemble, and there was promise in the movie that would’ve reunited Robert Pattinson with his “The Rover” co-star Guy Pearce, and “Maps To The Stars” player Mia Wasikowska. But as production gets underway, two of those three names have been swapped out.

Producer Els Vandevorst said the following to Screen Daily about the cast changes in a statement:

Mia Wasikowska left the film due to unforeseen personal circumstances and Dakota Fanning immediately jumped into the leading starring role. Kit Harington was so consistently passionate about the script that his enthusiasm and total creative commitment made him a must for the role which had been lined up by Pattinson.

So the bad news are that we’re no longer going to see Mia in Brimstone.
