About saying no (2011): "I've had to say no to stuff that people have been gobsmacked about. I've had big directors say to me, 'What do you mean, you can't do this movie? We don't understand.' I always hear, 'What do you mean she can't do this magazine cover?' or 'What do you mean she can't have this meeting for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity?' And my agent will say, 'She's at school, sorry."

First Colonia Trailer Released

Monday, September 14th, 2015

The first trailer for Florian Gallenberger’s Colonia has been released. The film stars Emma Watson, Daniel Bruhl and Mikael Nyqvist and premiered Sunday at the Toronto International Film Festival. No release date has been announced.

 

 

“Chile, 1973. Lufthansa flight attendant Lena (Watson) is in Santiago to visit her boyfriend, Daniel (Brühl), a talented graphic artist creating images in support of embattled President Salvador Allende. When Allende is violently ousted, General Augusto Pinochet’s forces begin rounding up dissidents. Daniel is taken to the remote stronghold of Colonia Dignidad (“Dignity Colony”), home to a secret agricultural commune and crypto-fascist sect led by sinister minister Paul Schäfer (Michael Nyqvist). Daniel is interrogated and tortured, but feigns severe mental deterioration to stay alive. Valiant and wily, Lena travels to Colonia and offers herself up to Schäfer as a follower. She is determined to find and free Daniel — but first she must ensure that she herself can survive Schäfer’s crushingly oppressive, viciously misogynistic practices.” – Tiff.net

Emma on Colonia, Beauty and Queen of the Tearling

Friday, March 13th, 2015

In the latest issue of TotalFilm, Emma Watson talks about her upcoming films Colonia, Regression, Beauty and the Beast and Queen of the Tearling, as well as HeForShe, gender equality, her path and life and future direction. The May issue of TotalFilm is on sale now.

 

On Colonia:

“I got sent the script and my agent sent me the Wikipedia page on Colonia Dignidad. I immediately went, ‘Oh my God, I’m not sure!’ It was really, really, really heavy and really awful subject matter, but the script was such a page-turner and so well written and I’m really a big fan of Daniel Brühl. I really liked the director [Florian Gallenberger]. It all just kind of felt right: a really intelligent female leading role character. It felt like the right thing to do. It really challenged me. It really pushed me to the brink, this role. I was essentially playing a girl living in a concentration camp. It’s tough emotionally, putting yourself in that place every day. So it was gruelling. But I really wanted to try. I really hope I’ve done it justice for people who actually really lived it and really experienced it.”

 

Beauty and the Beast

“I sing, so that’s really unexpected. I’ve never had to do that for a film role before, and I think people will be interested to see me do something very different like that. It gives me a different challenge, really. That’s terrifying in and of itself!”

 

and Queen of the Tearling

“I really like it. For me, to want to sign up to a series again, I wanted to have a certain amount of autonomy and control within that. Working with David’s been great. I’d love to direct something one day. I’d love to produce as well, so it’s quite a nice way to start learning about that. Yeah, just dipping my toes into that world.”

First Look at Emma in Colonia

Monday, October 27th, 2014
Colonia-1

The first still from Florian Gallenberger’s Colonia has been released. Emma Watson is seen here with Mikael Nyqvist as Paul Schäfer, a lay preacher and leader of the ‘charitable mission’ at Colonia Dignidad. Emma plays Lena, a young woman whose husband Daniel is abducted by Pinochet’s secret police during the 1973 Chilean military coup and sent to the Colonia, which is actually a cult. Lena joins the cult to rescue Daniel.

In a recent article Emma talked about the role, “This film is my first chance to develop a role from beginning to end. I carry the whole movie and it’s very different. It is both invigorating and liberating. It’s really cool.” and visiting the original site of Colonia, “The experience I will never forget. The buildings looked exactly like in the 1970s, although it is called Villa Baviera nowadays. I freaked out completely. You really wonder how such a thing could happen.”

Filming in Luxembourg has wrapped and the production now moves to Germany. The filming will finish in South America later this year, with a release date of October 2015.
