Vertical Entertainment has acquired the US rights to Anthony Byrne’s “IN DARKNESS” starring Natalie Dormer, Ed Skrein, Emily Ratajkowski, Jan Bijvoet, Neil Maskell, James Cosmo, and Joely Richardson. The film, which Dormer and Byrne co-wrote and was produced by 42, will be in theaters in May 2018. XYZ Films is selling the international territories at the Berlin Film Festival and market.

Blind pianist Sofia (Natalie Dormer) overhears a struggle in the apartment above hers that leads to the death of her neighbor Veronique (Emily Ratajkowski). It is the start of a journey that pulls Sofia out of her depth and brings her into contact with Veronique’s father, Milos Radic (Jan Bijvoet). A Serbian businessman accused of being a war criminal, Sofia is drawn into a dangerous world of corruption, investigating police, hitmen and the Russian mafia – a world with links to Sofia’s own hidden past and a path of revenge she has kept hidden until now.

“Natalie Dormer and Anthony Byrne are two incredibly passionate filmmakers who have brought a powerful female voice to the forefront of this exciting thriller and we look forward to bringing the film to audiences around the US,” says Rich Goldberg of Vertical Entertainment,” said co-president Rich Goldberg.

Said Dormer and Byrne in a joint statement: “The zeitgeist dialogue on gender disparity hadn’t even begun when we started writing IN DARKNESS together. We celebrate that the industry landscape is finally shifting and are proud to share IN DARKNESS with its strong yet flawed heroine. We are thrilled to have Vertical Entertainment releasing the film in the US and giving us the opportunity of a theatrical release.”

The deal was negotiated by Goldberg and Peter Jarowey at Vertical and UTA Independent Film Group on behalf of the filmmakers.

“IN DARKNESS” was directed by Anthony Byrne, written by Anthony Byrne and Natalie Dormer, produced by Anthony Byrne, Natalie Dormer, Adam Morane-Griffiths, Ben Pugh, and Josh Varney, executive produced by Rory Aitken and Joshua Horsfield, and co-produced by Olive Uniacke, with editing by Todd Harrison-Read and Paul Knight, cinematography by Si Bell, production design by Sonja Klaus, and music by Niall Byrne.

Vanda Jordan in Venus In Fur at Theatre Royal Haymarket, London
Five years ago, if you could beg a ticket off someone you might have been lucky enough to see Natalie Dormer stun in Miss Julie, a Patrick Marber rewrite of Strindberg’s war classic. Well, with Marber directing Dormer at the Theatre Royal Haymarket, it seems the creative partnership has brought out the best in one another yet again. Although the run ended in December, Dormer’s take on the mysterious Vanda, a savvy, unapologetic New York actress busting down audition doors with sex and self-confidence, has gone some way to reminding critics that she is far greater than the sum of her television appearances, most famously her role in the mighty yet oh-so-drawn-out Game Of Thrones. On stage, her serious star wattage is switched on and luminous for all to see. We watch on, happily

Game of Thrones star Natalie Dormer stands front and centre of Foxtel’s impressive big-budget miniseries Picnic at Hanging Rock.

The first scene of the six-part series, made by Fremantle Australia and since picked up by Amazon in the US and the BBC in the UK among others, is of Dormer’s Mrs Appleyard, seen from behind, framed by a large Victorian window and bathed in golden light.

If first impressions count, and they do, this one is a beauty.

The first episode of the highly anticipated series was unveiled this week at a special event in Macedon, just down the road from the setting of Joan Lindsay’s 1967 novel (the events of which are entirely fictitious, contrary to popular misconception).

Dormer, 36, plays an Englishwoman seemingly fresh off the boat in the colonies, a well-bred widow still in mourning but determined to build a new life every bit as substantial and imposing as the mansion in the middle of nowhere that she buys with what we assume is her inheritance.

The building becomes the site of Appleyard College, an elite boarding school. Chief among its students are Miranda Reid (Lily Sullivan), a headstrong country girl bridling at the prospect of being “finished” just so she can become someone’s wife; Marion Quade (Madeleine Madden), blessed with brains and beauty but cursed by dint of being the illegitimate half-caste daughter of a high-ranking colonial officer; and Irma Leopold (Samara Weaving), a young lady from “home” rather appalled to find herself in the Victorian bush rather than in the salons of Paris.

These three, of course, will all go missing on the day of the fateful picnic, St Valentine’s Day 1900.
