EXCLUSIVE: Julianna Margulies Joins Untouchables Movie – Plus many more notables

Yesterday I was on the set of Untouchable, which is filming in the Philadelphia area as well as NYC for the next 6 weeks. (source) The movie is based on The Intouchables an original French-language film which grossed $416 million overseas and $10 million domestic. It told the based-on-a-true-story take of an aristocrat (Francois Cluzet) who, after being injured, hires a young man (Omar Sy) from the wrong side of the tracks to be his caretaker.

Margulies
 Julianna Margulies arrived late in the afternoon. She’s not on the IMDB but I can tell you she plays a love interest of Bryan Cranston‘s named lily. Here’s she’s headed to make up and costumes to prepare for scenes that’ll be shot today. Poor Julianna I completely fanned out and told her how much I loved The Good Wife. She thanked me, and went on her way as I was enveloped in joy. Julianna Margulie (Medium)
Afterwards she headed to the set to meet the actors. (Interesting flared, threaded jeans. Is this a new style?)

Friday evening car scenes were filmed in Center City, but the principles weren’t involved.  Cranston and Kidman flew out to prepare for the Screen Actors Guild Award Awards last night. Kidman presented, and Cranston won for his performance in “All the Way. Be on the look out for them for the next 4 weeks and drop me a line if you see they, especially if you have a picture with them.

Thanks to Men’s Wearhouse for dressing me for the 160th Academy Concert and Ball this past weekend, and for giving my readers $40 off their rentals.
Thanks to my Instagram followers for all the love.
It was an awesome time, and my tux fit perfectly, the first time in the 6 years I’ve gone. I had no idea Men’s Wearhouse rented tuxes, let alone White Tails. I did know
they had great suits, and men’s clothing. They have a Big & Tall section as well. Go check them out at

Nicole Kidman Comes to Philly Wood To Film a Movie in February

Nicole Kidman Comes to PhillyWood To Film in February

In October I told you that Philadelphia will be the primary filming location for The Weinstein Company’s The Untouchables, directed by Neil Burger, who also directed Limitless in Philadelphia, written by Jon Hartmere and executive produced by Bob and Harvey Weinstein.

Nicole
Cranston was in town in October for meetings regarding the movie

The Untouchables will star Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston and Philadelphia native, powerhouse comedian Kevin Hart in the US remake of the French comedy, The Intouchables.

Nicole

I just learned today Nicole Kidman has been added to the cast, along with Amara Karan ; I checked the IMDB status of the movie and it had been updated. Yeah, now this will get me out in the freezing cold (although I would have still headed out for Hart/Cranston, this just makes it that much better. It’ll be good to finally photograph another film set, and how wonderful it’ll be to have our film production crews back to work. Thanks definitely goes to the hard working Greater Philadelphia Film Office and Sharon Pinkenson.

 

Filming is to begin in February I’ve been told, with shooting to be done at Sun Center Studios as well as several scenes shot in Center City.

*******************

I see PhillyVoice wrote about the title of the film being changed, and I hadn’t seen it before now (1030PM) . (Source)

Deadline Magazine had a story in yesterday’s post that Kidman was in talks to do the movie, but now that it’s been added to her official IMDB page, I’d say it was a done deal.  Here’s a synopsis of the movie.

A fresh take on the original concept, The Intouchables script is by Jon Hartmere. The original French language film grossed $416 million overseas, and $10 million domestic. Pic told the true story of an aristocrat (Francois Cluzet) who, after being paralyzed in a hang-gliding accident, hires a young man (Omar Sy) from the projects to be his caretaker. The original film was directed by Olivier Nakache and Eric Toledano. Kidman would play the role of Yvonne, played in the original by Anne Le Ny, while Karan will play Maggie, the role that Audrey Fleurot played in the original.

CAA and Media Talent rep Kidman, UTA, Principal Entertainment and United Agents rep Karan. (Deadline)
