The mobile and web platform picks up exclusive UK mobile and web rights to Paul Morrison’s Little Ashes. Babelgum has acquired exclusive UK web and mobile rights to Paul Morrison’s Little Ashes, which stars Twilight’s Robert Pattinson.
The film will be available for free streaming to U.K. audiences via Babelgum’s online platform and its free application for Apple’s iPhone & iPod Touch and Google’s Android devices from February 8.
A drama about the early lives and loves of artist Salvador Dali, poet Federico Garcia Lorca, and filmmaker Luis Bunuel, the film also stars Javier Beltran and Matthew McNulty, alongside Pattinson.
Babelgum acquired the rights from producer Carlo Dusi (Aria Films) and production company Met Films. Kaleidoscope Entertainment is distributing the film theatrically in the UK, whilst the US rights are held by Regent.
Australian actress Emilie de Ravin has moved from the small screen to the big screen in the upcoming romantic drama Remember Me (out March 12).
In the movie, de Ravin (Claire on the TV smash hit Lost) plays Ally who becomes the object of affection of one brooding young man named Tyler, played by super hunk Robert Pattinson. Tyler has a strained relationship with his father a (Pierce Brosnan) due to a family tragedy and didn’t think anyone could pull him out of his funk until, he met Ally (Emilie de Ravin) through an unusual twist of fate. Love was the last thing on his mind, but as her spirit unexpectedly heals and inspires him, he begins to fall for her. Through their love, he begins to find happiness but soon, hidden secrets are revealed, and the circumstances that brought them together slowly threaten to tear them apart.
De Ravin recently spoke to Tribute’s Toni-Marie Ippolito to discuss filming Remember Me, how hard it was to concentrate with the paparazzi on set, what Robert Pattinson is really like to work with and, of course, her feelings on the final season of the hit series Lost, which made her a household name.
Congratulations on this film. It looks fantastic. So, what did you think first think about this love story?
DE RAVIN: I fell in love as soon as I read it. It’s one of those few and far between scripts that you read that you’re like, “This is just something that I would just kill to be a part of.”
Any comments attributed to Robert Pattinson are going to get huge attention, especially with regards to the highly anticipated Bel Ami he’s making with Uma Thurman, and especially if outlets can throw in the word “sex.”
“The sex scenes with Uma are kind of disturbing,” Pattinson is quoted as saying to The Daily Record. The comments were quickly (and not surprisingly) picked up everywhere. “[Thurman's character] kind of uses sex as a sort of weapon and my character thinks like an animal,” Pattinson supposedly adds.
Bel Ami is an adaptation of French writer Guy de Maupassant’s novel, in which Georges Duroy (Pattinson) is a social climbing journalist and playboy. As Gossip Cop confirmed last month, Christina Ricci has also signed on to the project.
Gossip Cop was told by a source close to Pattinson that the Daily Record interview is a “fabrication.”
The source adds, Pattinson “never spoke to the [Scottish] Daily Record.”
