‘Bronte’ books its sisters

After Renee Zellweger as Beatrix Potter and Anne Hathaway as Jane Austen, three more American actresses are set to give purists the vapors by taking on the roles of the most famous sisters in English literature: Charlotte, Emily and Anne Bronte.

Michelle Williams, Bryce Dallas Howard and Evan Rachel Wood are lining up to star in “Bronte,” a biopic written and to be directed by Charles Sturridge, which is set to shoot in September.

Icon Entertainment Intl. has picked up foreign sales for “Bronte,” with ICM representing the project in North America. Alastair Maclean-Clark and Basil Stephens of AMC Pictures are producing. Sturridge’s screenplay is based on an original script by Angela Workman.

The Bronte sisters and their brother, Branwell, grew up in isolation on the Yorkshire moors, and went on to write some of the most enduring novels in the canon of English literature — Charlotte’s “Jane Eyre,” Emily’s “Wuthering Heights” and Anne’s “The Tenant of Wildfell Hall.”

As children, they created epic fantasy worlds to entertain themselves, led by the charismatic Branwell, but when he descended into alcohol and opium abuse, the sisters had to find their own way in a world dominated by strict patriarchal conventions. This initially forced them to disguise their identities by publishing under male pseudonyms.

Sturridge said, “My family come from Yorkshire and I grew up with five sisters, so this is a story I have always wanted to tell. We all remember the lost worlds of our childhoods, but these amazing girls never abandoned them and applied the same unique and uncompromising daring to their work as adults.”

Bryce Dallas Howard Learns To Balance

Bryce Dallas Howard is the daughter of a very famous man in Hollywood — director Ron Howard, but she is becoming an industry heavy-weight in her own right.

Howard, who was married last August and gave birth to her son Theo in February, stars in the box-office smash “Spider-Man 3” as Gwen Stacy — Mary Jane’s rival for Spider-Man’s affection.

The film required Howard, who grew up in Greenwich, Conn., to do some risky stunts – like falling out of a building. A crane blows through her office building and she ends up suspended over Fifth Avenue. All this happened during the very beginning of her pregnancy — before even knew she was carrying a child. She found out soon there after.

“Well, I was really scared,” she told Early Show co-anchor Hannah Storm. “At first I was like, ‘Oh, my God, I should have known.’ I felt so irresponsible. But it was O.K. He was very — he was like practically just conceived, so thank God, it was okay.”

Theo is doing well, Howard said. He sleeps through the night and eats well. He has also taught his mother how to be flexible.

“You have certain expectations and things that you want to be just a certain way,” she said. “And then you realize that it can’t be the way that you expect it…I would be hard on myself or really disappointed, and then you just — if you just kind of let go of all that and really be present with your child and just do the best you can at every given moment, then, you know, then things usually turn out, hopefully.”

Her director father loves being a grandfather. Howard said the director, a father of four, is very nurturing and having an infant around has brought out a “youthful side of him.”

“I mean, he’s behaving almost like a kid again,” she said.

Howard, who studied drama at New York University, said that playing Gwen Stacy was fun because she completely changed her look from a red-head to bleach blonde to play the flirty and devious Gwen Stacy.

“I never really dyed my hair anything significant from my natural hair color,” she said. “I was bleaching it every 10 days because my roots were like, ‘I’m a redhead, please, I’m a redhead!’ It was unreal. My husband was just like, hmm, ‘I kind of like this.'”

Spider-Man 3 Interview

We had a chance to catch up with Bryce Dallas Howard and talk to her about playing Gwen Stacy in Spiderman 3. She most recently starred in the M. Night Shyamalan film Lady in the Water opposite Paul Giamatti, followed by Kenneth Branagh’s forthcoming adaptation of the Shakespeare classic “As You Like It” for HBO Films, in which she stars as Rosalind opposite Kevin Kline and Alfred Molina. Prior to that, she appeared opposite Willem Dafoe and Danny Glover in the Lars von Trier film Manderlay, the filmmaker’s follow-up to Dogville. Manderlay premiered at the 2005 Cannes Film Festival.

Howard made her feature film debut starring in the M. Night Shyamalan film The Village opposite Adrien Brody, Joaquin Phoenix, and Sigourney Weaver. After leaving the Tisch School of the Arts program at New York University, Howard immediately began working on the New York stage. Her stage work includes the role of Marianne in the Roundabout’s Broadway production of “Tartuffe;” Rosalind in the Public Theatre’s “As You Like It;” Sally Platt in the Manhattan Theater Club’s production of Alan Ayckbourn’s “House/Garden;” and as Emily in the Bay Street Theater Festival production of “Our Town.”. Here is what she had to say:

Q: You looked great as a blonde.

Bryce: Oh, thank you. They worked very hard in the make-up trailer.

Q: Do blondes have more fun?

Bryce: Is blonde more fun? I don’t know. I was only a blonde for six months and the entire time I was working, but I had a great time working.

Q: You had to read the comic books and take the character from the pages. How hard is that with a comic book character?

Bryce: Not difficult because, primarily, this character was created in the late ‘60’s, early ‘70’s so there’s been so much analysis done since and so many, almost like thesis papers written about her, so I wasn’t only reading the comic books. I was also reading what everyone thought about her and their beliefs about her. So, I got to have a lot of information from that; their interpretations of her. What was a little tricky to navigate was, in the comic book, what she’s known as is Peter Parker’s first love and, in this franchise, she’s coming in while Peter Parker in still in a very intense, important relationship with Mary Jane. So, I wanted to make sure that, when I came in, I wasn’t acting like some kind of man-stealing tart [laughs]. I was a woman that really, potentially could have that kind of future relationship with Peter Parker. Who knows what will ultimately happen? But, that was the kind of tone that I wanted to create.
