Happy Dog Day Sunday! Meet Blanche, a sophisticated and classy dog named after Ms. DuBois from Tennessee Williams’ A Streetcar Named Desire. Blanche enjoys hiking with her fur-son Dexter, going on RV road trips with her human Elaine, and enjoying the finer things in life (like comfy beds and gourmet food). Check out some snapshots of her latest adventures below!
Where were you when you heard Zadie Smith was writing a script for a space adventure? I was browsing news while enjoying some iced chai, listening to a podcast and hoping to get some great news on the female film making front. And oh, did Monday deliver!
Exclusively from Screen International, we’ve learned that Smith, the author of the critically-acclaimed novels White Teeth and On Beauty and part-time professor at New York University, has joined French director Claire Denis (2009’s White Material) for her first English-language film.
Smith, who is making her screenwriting debut, and Denis will be joined on the currently untitled project by Smith’s writer husband, Nick Laird. Little is currently known about the sci-fi adventure apart from it being set in outer space in a “future that seems like the present.”
The project is set to begin filming in late 2015 or early 2016. We love seeing geek girls spread their wings around here, so we’ll keep you updated on the latest developments with this project!
