Hayley Atwell is set to return to the West End for a new production of Rosmersholm.

The Howard’s End star will take on the role of Rebecca West in Ibsen’s 1886 play, with Tom Burke taking on the role of John Rosmer.

Set amid a time of political unrest just before an election is due to take place, it centres on clergyman Rosmer’s struggle to fight to become a radicalist as he battles with his family’s privileged history.

It will be reimagined in a new adaptation by Duncan Macmillan, whose acclaimed previous plays include People, Places and Things and 1984.

It will be directed by Ian Rickson, who was nominated for Best Director at last year’s Evening Standard Theatre Awards for his revival of Translations.

Atwell’s recent stage credits include Measure for Measure at the Donmar and Dry Powder at Hampstead Theatre.

Burke starred in The Deep Blue Sea at the National Theatre in 2016, and recently starred as Cormoran Strike in a TV adaptation of JK Rowling’s Robert Galbraith novels.

Rosmersholm will run at the Duke of York’s Theatre from April 24 – July 20. [Source]

Hayley Atwell is set to co-star with Ewan McGregor in Disney’s “Christopher Robin,” sources tell Variety.

“World War Z’s” Marc Forster is directing.

“Christopher Robin” follows Disney’s ongoing model of taking animated classics from its archives and giving them a live-action spin, centering on Robin (McGregor), the little boy from the “Winnie the Pooh” series, who is now all-grown-up and lost all sense of imagination. Pooh and his friends reenter Robin’s life to help him find it once again. Atwell will play Robin’s wife.

Brigham Taylor is producing the project. “Hidden Figures” scribe Allison Schroeder is penning the script.

Disney has found a reliable strategy in making live-action hits based on characters from its animated IP, with “Beauty and the Beast” most recently garnering big box office numbers. The live-action adaptation of the Oscar-winning 1991 movie is currently the highest-grossing film of the year at both the domestic and worldwide box office.

Atwell and Disney have a strong relationship, dating back to Atwell’s first appearance as Agent Carter in Marvel’s “Captain America: The First Avenger.” The character was so popular that ABC, owned by Disney, made an “Agent Carter” spinoff series, which was canceled last year despite critical acclaim.

Atwell also played Cinderella’s mother in Disney’s 2015 remake of “Cinderella,” one of the studio’s first successes in turning its animated classics into live-action blockbusters.

Following the end of “Agent Carter,” Atwell has moved on to another high-profile TV show. She’s set to star in Starz and BBC’s “Howards End” miniseries, which is currently filming.

Starz has teamed with BBC to co-produce the limited series Howards End, based on the classic E.M. Forster novel with Oscar-nominated Manchester by the Sea screenwriter Kenneth Lonergan writing the TV adaptation. Hayley Atwell (Agent Carter), Matthew Macfadyen (Ripper Street) and Tracey Ullman (Tracey Ullman’s Show) have been tapped to star in the project, originally greenlighted by BBC One in December 2015. Hettie Macdonald (White Girl) will direct the four-part series that will air on BBC One in the UK and Starz in the U.S. Howards End will film in and around London.

Howards End explores the changing landscape of social and class divisions in turn-of-the-century England through the prism of three families: the intellectual and idealistic Schlegels, the wealthy Wilcoxes from the world of business and the working-class Basts. Playground is executive producing in association with City Entertainment and KippSter Entertainment.

Atwell will play Margaret Schlegel, Macfadyen will portray Henry Wilcox, and Ullman will play Aunt Juley Mund.

“Starz continues our commitment to bring quality drama to the screen with Howards End, and we’re delighted to once again work in partnership with the BBC and Colin Callender on this literary period piece,” said Carmi Zlotnik, President of Programming for Starz.

Callendar also is producing The Missing and The White Queen franchise for Starz — both back for second installments. He executive produces Howards End with City Entertainment’s Joshua D. Maurer (Papillon) and Alixandre Witlin (The Last Tycoon) and KippSter Entertainment’s David A. Stern (The Last Tycoon) as well as with Playground’s Sophie Gardiner (Eureka Street) and Scott Huff (The Missing) and Lucy Richer for the BBC. Laura Hastings-Smith (Hunger) is producing.

Said BBC executive producer Richer, “Kenneth Lonergan is one of our truly great contemporary voices, and his adaptation of this adored timeless classic will surprise and delight a whole new audience with its timely and relevant themes.” [Source]

Marvel fans are calling on Netflix to save the ABC series Agent Carter, which was canceled this past week.

All five major networks made big headlines this past week as they brought the axe down on some beloved TV shows. But perhaps Marvel fans have been most outspoken following the news that ABC has canceled Marvel’s Agent Carter after just two seasons. Now, those fans are attempting to fight back. They have officially launched a petition asking Netflix to save the show.

Netflix sounds like the perfect home for the series, which stars Hayley Atwell as one of the founding members of S.H.I.E.L.D. They already host the very popular Marvel series Daredevil, which recently premiered its second season, and Jessica Jones, which has been renewed for season 2. Coming to the streaming giant later this year is Luke Cage. And they have Iron Fist planned for 2017. Also arriving next year is The Defenders, a miniseries that brings all four of these superheroes together under one roof. The Punisher is also getting his own series. So why not add one more to the line-up?

As of this morning, over 21,000 people have signed the petition, sending out the distress call that they want their Peggy Carter saved. The petition targets Disney, ABC and Netflix. And it is very direct and to the point. Their message?

“Save Agent Carter, bring her to NETFLIX.”

That’s it. Now, various supporters around the Internet are making their case on an individual basis as to why the show must be saved. In the realm of superhero TV shows, hers is one of the few, alongside The CW’s Supergirl that has a female lead. One supporter of the petition had this to say about why it’s important to keep Agent Carter up and running, even if it isn’t on network TV.

Hayley Atwell is astoundingly famous on the Internet for her portrayal of Peggy Carter. From Twitter to Facebook, everyone is clamoring for an Agent Carter season 3 announcement.

Unfortunately, no matter how strong the internet loves a celebrity, online raves just aren’t enough to save certain shows. It happened with Firefly and it might happen to Agent Carter, because the sad reality is that if widescale viewership is low, networks are bound to pull the plug on a program.

Agent Carter season 3 was almost always shaky, starting when Atwell announced that she will star in a lead role in another ABC program, the legal drama Conviction. And while both Atwell and the network have expressed their desire to keep both her commitments as Agent Peggy Carter and her new show, it’s not looking like a priority considering Agent Carter’s low numbers. Moreover, many fans saw her commitment with Conviction as a sign that she’s ready to start moving on from her life as Peggy.

With regards to the ratings, Fansided reported that the season 2 finale attracted only 2.35 million viewers. This is only roughly a third of the number who came and watched the series premiere last January 2015. But another reason for the dire fate of season 3 is that Marvel’s coming up with another program which could take the spotlight from Agent Carter: “Marvel’s Most Wanted.” [Source]

Putting the matter of national concern on the front, the Season 2 premiere of ABC’s hit crime drama TV series “Agent Carter” has been given a new release date. To give way for the State of the Union address, the Hayley Atwell-starred series will now return on air this Jan. 19.

While on delay, fans can busy themselves figuring out what might happen in the new season of the Marvel TV show with the given titles for the first three episodes of Season 2.

Shared over at SpoilerTV.com, the titles are:

Episode 1: “The Lady in the Lake”

Episode 2: “A View in the Dark”

Episode 3: “Better Angels”

As what might have already been known, the new season will kick off with two episodes. The segments are expected to find Peggy ditching the busy life of New York for the “glitz and glamour” of the post-war Los Angeles, California.

Despite the sunny and inviting weather of the Golden Coast, the Strategic Scientific Reserve operative will be busy figuring out the new threats which, in the first place, called her to the location.

Joined by the trusty valet, Jarvis (James D’Arcy), the duo will find themselves entangled in the mystery of the Darkforce as well as dealing with new characters like the nascent Madam Masque (Wynn Everett). The new setting, all the while, will also find Peggy become involved with a handful of interesting love interests.

Viewers should also be delighted to meet the newcomers on the show like Lotte Verbeek, who will play as Ana, Jarvis’ wife. Other new cast members include Currie Graham (as Calvin Chadwick), Reggie Austin (as Jason Wilkes), Kurtwood Smith (as Vernon Masters), and Ken Marino (as Joseph Manfredi).

Joining the aforementioned actors are the Season 1 mainstays like Enver Gjokaj as Daniel Sousa, and Chad Michael Murray as Jack Thompson.

Stay tuned for more updates. [Source]

The second season of “Marvel’s Agent Carter” will premiere on ABC on Tuesday, January 19 at 9PM.

The two-hour special was initially scheduled to bow on Tuesday, January 5, however due to the President’s State of the Union address scheduled for Tuesday, January 12, the premiere has been pushed back two weeks.

Dedicated to the fight against new Atomic Age threats in the wake of World War II, Peggy must now journey from New York City to Los Angeles for her most dangerous assignment yet. But even as she discovers new friends, a new home – perhaps even a new love – she’s about to find out that the bright lights of the post-war Hollywood mask a more sinister threat to everyone she is sworn to protect.
