VARIETY – Jaeden Lieberher will star as a kid who runs away from home in the search of his estranged mother in “The True Adventures of Wolfboy,” Variety has learned.
The 14-year-old actor from “St. Vincent,” “It,” and “Midnight Special” will share the screen with John Turturro, Chris Messina, Eve Hewson (from “The Knick”), and Chloe Sevigny in this coming-of-age story.
Other co-stars include Sophie Giannamore (“Transparent”) and Tony-nominee Michelle Wilson (“Sweat”).
The indie will be fully financed by K Period Media, the boutique production company launched by Kimberly Steward in 2013 that hit a home run with its first feature, the Oscar-winning drama “Manchester by the Sea.” The film’s producers are “K Period’s” Steward, Josh Godfrey, and Lauren Beck; Big Indie Pictures’ Declan Baldwin; and Heroes and Villains Entertainment’s Benjamin Blake.
“The True Adventures of Wolfboy” will mark the directorial debut for Martin Krejci, who made the short film “Fricassee” that played at Cannes Directors’ Fortnight. The script is from “Year of the Rooster” playwright Olivia Dufault.
Production on the movie will begin in September. UTA Independent Film Group and WME Global will sell the title to distributors.

DEADLINE – Cinemax has made it official — Steven Soderbergh’s The Knick will not produce more seasons beyond the two that already had aired. Clive Owen, who starred in the first two seasons, had said that he was done, though the network had left the door slightly open for another installment with a new lead actor. Cinemax will now focus completely on its recalibrated original programming strategy — launched recently with the pickups of new Strike Back series and Rellik — as the network is returning to the type of fare that launched its push into original primetime series: fun, high-octane, action, pulpy, straight-to-series dramas done in a cost-effective way primarily as international co-productions. Here is the statement by Cinemax’s programming chief Kary Antholis:
“After a critically acclaimed two-season run of The Knick on Cinemax, we will not be going forward with additional episodes of the series,” said Antholis, president, HBO Miniseries and Cinemax Programming. “Despite our pride in and affection for the series, as well as our respect for and gratitude towards Steven Soderbergh and his team, we have decided to return Cinemax to its original primetime series fare of high-octane action dramas, many of which will be internationally co-produced.”
The Knick was part of a push into high-end, homegrown drama series initiative at HBO sibling Cinemax. It started with Banshee, which ran for four seasons, followed by The Knick, Outcast, whose second season doesn’t have a premiere date yet, and Quarry, whose renewal for a second season appears unlikely. In an interview with Deadline in December, when Cinemax’s shift to action drama co-productions was announced, Antholis called The Knick “one of the most rewarding creative experiences of my career,” “Critics loved the show, and I can’t tell you how many studio executives around town have told me it’s their favorite show on television, but it did not find an audience at the level that Banshee did. Even though in terms of an HBO show, The Knick is a modestly priced show, in terms of a Cinemax show, it started to throw our budget out of whack.”

Irish star Eve Hewson, who is the daughter of U2 frontman Bono and Ali Hewson, has said she is looking forward to putting her own stamp on Maid Marion in director Otto Bathurst’s movie adaptation of Robin Hood.
The actress will appear alongside Kingsman: The Secret Service’s Taron Egerton in the “gritty revisionist take” retelling of the Robin Hood legend and said she is “excited” to take on the leading role.
Speaking to Total Film magazine, the 24-year-old Dubliner said: “I read with Taron and he’s incredible. “Marian was a pioneer. All I can really say is I’m excited to give it a crack and I think it’s going to be a new take on the role.”
Egerton will play Robin as he arrives back from the Crusades and begins to recruit his band of Merry Men when he discovers corruption across Sherwood Forest and Nottingham.
Otto Bathurst (Peaky Blinders) will direct from a script by Joby Harold, with production slated to begin on Robin Hood: Origins in the next few months. Continue reading Eve Hewson not daunted by ‘new take’ on Robin Hood
