THE ONE AND ONLY IVAN Begins Production – Produced By Angelina Jolie And Stars Helen Mirren And Sam Rockwell



Production has commenced at Pinewood Studios outside London on “The One and Only Ivan,” a live-action/CG hybrid adaptation of the children’s book by Katherine Applegate directed by Thea Sharrock (“Me before You”). The screenplay is by two-time Independent Spirit Award winner Mike White (“Pitch Perfect 3,” “The School of Rock”) based on Applegate’s award-winning book and the producers are Oscar® and three-time Golden Globe® winner Angelina Jolie (“First They Killed My Father,” “Maleficent”), the late Allison Shearmur (“Solo: A Star Wars Story,” “Cinderella”) and Brigham Taylor (“Christopher Robin,” “The Jungle Book”).
“The One and Only Ivan” stars Academy Award® and Golden Globe® nominee and four-time Emmy® winner Bryan Cranston (“Trumbo,” “Breaking Bad”); Ramon Rodriquez (“Iron Fist,” “The Defenders”); Arianna Greenblatt (“A Bad Moms Christmas”); Indira Varma (“Patrick Melrose,” “Exodus: Gods and Kings”); and Eleanor Matsuura (“Wonder Woman,” “Sherlock”).
The film features the vocal talents of Angelina Jolie, Academy Award® winner Sam Rockwell (“Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri,” “Moon”) and Critics’ Choice Award winner Brooklynn Prince (“The Florida Project”). Oscar® and three-time Golden Globe® winner Helen Mirren (“Winchester,” “The Queen”) and Emmy® and Golden Globe winner Danny DeVito (“Dumbo,” “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”) have also signed on to voice characters in the film.
Based on the true story of a uniquely-talented gorilla and the other animals who share a communal habitat at a suburban shopping mall, “The One and Only Ivan” is an unforgettable tale about the beauty of friendship, the power of visualization and the significance of the place we call home. Applegate’s book, a #1 New York Times’ bestseller, has won numerous awards, including the Newberry Medal for the most distinguished contribution to American literature for children in 2013.

  1. Trust’ Star Harris Dickinson to Play the Prince in Disney’s ‘Maleficent 2’ (EXCLUSIVE)
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Harris Dickinson, who portrays J. Paul Getty III in FX’s limited series “Trust,” is set to play the prince and love interest of Elle Fanning in Disney’s “Maleficent 2,” sources tell Variety.

    Angelina Jolie will return to star as the title character with Michelle Pfeiffer in negotiations to play Dickinson’s mother, and Ed Skrein on board to play one of the the villains. Dickinson’s role was played by Brenton Thwaites in the first pic, but due to schedule conflicts with his TV show “Titans,” where he plays Dick Grayson/Robin, he was unable to return for the role.

    “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” helmer Joachim Ronning is set to direct.

    Joe Roth is producing the film, with Jez Butterworth and Linda Woolverton penning the latest script. Micah Fitzerman-Blue and Noah Harpster wrote the most recent draft.

    It is not clear where this film will pick up following the first movie, which was based on the fairy tale “Sleeping Beauty.” The original story centered on an evil fairy who cursed an infant princess to eternal sleep, only to realize the young girl was the only one who could save the kingdom from its dangerous ruler. “Maleficent” broke several box office records on its way to making $758.5 million worldwide.

    Production on the sequel is set to start in 2018.

    Dickinson has been a breakout on “Trust,” playing the kidnapped heir of oil tycoon John Paul Getty amid Hollywood veterans like Donald Sutherland, Hilary Swank, and Brendan Fraser. On feature side, he has a starring role in Fox’s upcoming supernatural film “Darkest Minds.”

    He is repped by Gersh.
