Please forgive me if this has been posted about already (I don't see any threads dedicated to the subject, but, then again, maybe it doesn't deserve its own thread), but ...

Knightley in Tony Scott's Domino
Source: The Hollywood Reporter
Monday, August 2, 2004


Keira Knightley ("Pirates of the Caribbean," King Arthur) will star in Domino, an action thriller that Tony Scott will direct for New Line Cinema from a Richard Kelly script, says The Hollywood Reporter.

The trade says the real-life story centers on Domino Harvey, the daughter of actor Laurence Harvey, who starred in the original version of The Manchurian Candidate. Domino Harvey ditched a career as a Ford model to become a bounty hunter. The script is said to incorporate flashbacks, flash-forwards, and characters from Beverly Hills, 90210.

New Line will distribute the film in North America. Hadida's Metropolitan Filmexport distribution company will release the film in France, while Summit Entertainment and Davis Films are handling other foreign sales.

Principal photography is scheduled to begin next month in Los Angeles and Las Vegas, with a 2005 release planned.

Hmmm. I wonder if there is any truth to this. Paul? Hehe ....

Yes, as expected Keira's gap in her diary for October to Christmas has been filled by another movie. It's in today's Variety, so it's definitely on:

New Line falls for 'Domino'
Principal photography skedded to begin Oct. 4


HOLLYWOOD -- Tony Scott will direct and Keira Knightley will star in "Domino" for New Line.
Penned by "Donnie Darko" writer-director Richard Kelly, "Domino" is based on the true story of Domino Harvey, the daughter of actor Laurence Harvey. A former Ford model, she rejected her life in Beverly Hills to become a bounty hunter.

Scott and Samuel Hadida are producing the picture, which Hadida is financing. Principal photography is scheduled to begin Oct. 4, with shoots in Los Angeles and Las Vegas.

Hadida's Metropolitan Filmexport will release the film in France, while Summit Entertainment and Davis Films are handling other foreign sales.

"Domino" is a Davis Films/Scott-Free production. New Line production president Toby Emmerich is overseeing the project for the studio.

Scott and Hadida collaborated on "True Romance" (1993) and "Spy Game" (2001).

Hadida brought the project to New Line, which has long utilized Metropolitan as its French distribdistrib.

Scott most recently directed "Man on Fire."

Most recently starring in "King Arthur," Knightley will star opposite Adrien Brody in "The Jacket" and will topline "Pride and Prejudice."

Hadida's other 2004 productions include "Resident Evil: Apocalypse" and "The Bridge of San Luis Rey," starring Robert De NiroRobert De Niro.



Time to update the filmography again :-)
If Tulip Fever is still on, it will have to be January to March, which casts new questions over the rumoured January start for Pirates 2.

There's not much out there on Ms. Harvey, but here's a good description of the draft script (sold on 16th October 2001, so it's been hanging around, but not as long as The Jacket, which was penned back in '98):

i would consider star wars big power, or at least it had a big draw, considering it was star wars, ewan mcgregor and natalie portman, even if she did have a small role

it's not out yet, but the jacket has adrien brody, he might not be box office star power but he's got an oscar

It's called acting mate...it's how she'll actually get some credit for her talent...because to be honest I'm sick and tired of hearing how she just stands around looking pretty...not seen KA yet but I KNOW she doesn't just stand around looking pretty in that and she still got slammed.

This actually sounds like another kick-arse movie. Correct me if I'm wrong but this is her first relatively modern major film in a while...what with P & P obviously being a period piece, with The Jacket being set in 50's, I believe, with KA obviously being historical...and then Pirates. Course there was Love Actually, but that was made before Pirates...so I think since she started filming Pirates she hasn't filmed a modern piece yet. Oh well...may be wrong...Paul'll probably correct me.

And no, the 90210 reference is not to the show, but the lifestyle, if I understood Knowles' article properly.

KnightleyNews
04-08-2004, 11:50 AM
Yes I think 90210 refers to the Beverly Hills postcode, symbolic of the glitzy lifestyle Domino enjoyed (or rather didn't) before she chucked it all in. I still keep thinking of Boba Fett when I read 'Bounty Hunter' though. :)

As for the contemporary thing, The Jacket is now set after the Gulf War, I believe, so that's early '90s. The original script had it set during Vietnam.

But Domino will be Keira's second consecutive title role, with P & P, and her third if you include PoThieves.

I'm jumping in a little late on this, but it's a little premature to say that Domino is no exception. The only casting announcement we've had so far is for Keira in the title role, so we don't know who else will be in it. Also, you have to keep in mind that not everyone sees a film solely based on who's in it. There will be people who will see it because Tony Scott is directing, and there will be people who will see it because Richard Kelly wrote it. At this point, I think Keira is still building her fanbase, and I think a movie like this one will actually help her in that respect, because her willingness to tackle edgier material shows she's more than just a flavor-of-the-month starlet.

Some 'meat on the bones' from a Vegas newspaper today:

Look for numerous local sightings in the coming weeks of Vanity Fair magazine cover girl Keira Knightley ("King Arthur," "Pirates of the Caribbean").

She stars in "Domino," which starts filming this month -- Valley of Fire and Stratosphere are two spots being used for filming. The action thriller, directed by Tony Scott ("Top Gun," "Spy Game"), is based on the life story of Domino Harvey, who ditched a career as a Ford model to become a bounty hunter.

In the film, she is assigned to solve the kidnapping of a TV reality show host, played by Ian Ziering of "Beverly Hills 90210" fame. Other "90210" cast members appear in the fake reality show as well.

Harvey is also the daughter of late actor Laurence Harvey -- who starred in the original version of "The Manchurian Candidate" -- and the stepdaughter of Hard Rock Hotel magnate Peter Morton.

We look forward to the movie's closing scene, which we hear may feature the explosion of the top of the Stratosphere.

"It is a Tony Scott action movie, so there will be a lot going on," Strat spokesman Michael Gilmartin told us. "We are very excited that they are going to be filming scenes at our property."

The film is slated to open next April 23.

April 2005? or April 2006? I'm confused, because if this is going to be good(and by no means will it be anything less than great) then why are they only giving the movie 6 months. Oh well, at least we won't have to wait too terrible long then.

Cool extracts:

Keira Knightley is about to become a lethal weapon. The actress has been working with combat and martial arts trainers on how to use kung-fu weapons for a new movie role.


Keira, 19, was sent a big box packed with nunchucks, switchblades and gun manuals to help her prepare for her role as real-life bounty hunter Domino Harvey in director Tony Scott's thriller Domino.

Her weapon of choice so far is the nunchucks.

Switchblades are awesome compared to nunchucks, but that's just my opinion. Good for Keira, getting to play with weapons, which most kids like to dream about. *dreams about mowing down hated schoolmates with a gattling gun*

No, he's talking about the Behind the Music skit..with The Blue Oyster Cult. Chris played "Bruce Dickenson" (my friend is going to be him for Halloween, and my other friend is going to be a cowbell.)

Hunh. Mena Suvari, Macy Gray, Lucy Liu? Geez, not what I'd call a stellar cast.

Hopefully, with a great script by Richard Kelly, proper directing from Tony Scott and good performances from Christopher Walken and Jacqueline Bisset will provide Keira with enough to turn in a really good performance that will silence her critics. This movie sounds really good if not a bit odd. I'm really excited about it.

ETA: I just realized that filming has already started. I can't wait for the first production photos.

She's probably prettier with a more toned body and with her hair/makeup done. Also, she doesn't look that different from some models I've seen in magazines.

But I doubt they're going to uglify Keira. I like Keira, don't get me wrong, but I think her beauty might have had a bit to do with her casting.

''Brian Austin Green was even worse off for wear, with a bandage wrapped completely around his head. “I get the sh*t end of the stick,” Green revealed. “It’s become a running gag. Tony for fun likes to bloody people up and Keira breaks my nose in the film. She punches me and sort of from there it’s been the gag of how bad can this guy get it?”

What prompts Keira Knightley’s Domino to sock Brian Austin Green in the face? “Because I tell her I think that she has daddy issues and she’s full of shit and not nearly as tough as she acts.” ''

Who does this Brian Austin Green guy think he is? Glad Keira broke his nose.

Someone looks a little out of place. Other than this, I think this will be a good movie. Cast looks solid, writer is excellent and the director is a damn fine director (a hack, but one of the best).

Someone looks a little out of place.

But isn't that the whole point? "Young model becomes bounty hunter" and not "Ex-cop becomes bounty hunter". She shouldn't look like an almost 50 year old former boxer.

Speaking of which, there's an interview with Mickey Rourke (http://chud.com/interviews/1072) on CHUD.

The Keira-related bits:

Q: What do you think of Keira?

Mickey: I don't particularly care myself for actresses at all. I really don't like them. She's like a breath of fresh air and if she wasn't I would tell you. I have no fucking problem telling you, but it's really rare that I see somebody especially at that age, lets say in the category that she's in at the moment where she's not like some Hollywood sort of who's said I’m the next so and so. She's genuine. What I really like about her is that she's a lady. She's very classy. I caught myself going, “Shit.” At such a young age she's very talented, she's really classy which you don't find often, or I haven't with the people her age or older. So it is like a breath of fresh air working with somebody that I have respect for like that.

Q: Is that actresses specifically, or actors too?

Mickey: Both, but especially actresses. But I like her a lot. Then again, Tony has got really good taste sometimes. I think that he made a really good and interesting decision with her. He was telling me beforehand, she comes from a whole other world than this character would.

It may well be the point but she looks in no way believable as a bounty hunter, it may not bother most but it bothers me.

The real trick is how she handles a sawn off shotgun.
I am definitely not a fan of her new hair...

How is that? What, in your experience, does a bounty hunter have to look like?
Are sunglasses required? Or a Boba Fett helmet? :)

I'd think that from a purely physical perspective almost any healthy adult could be a bounty hunter.
Now if you'd said that she didn't look like an arm-wrestler or a removal man (removal person?) I'd agree. But I don't see the problem here.

I have a cousin who's a prison guard. She's a very slightly built woman in her twenties. Certainly smaller than Keira. I suspect that if you saw her you might say she didn't look believable in her job either. Yet she's doing fine.

This is all about subjective opinions, of course, and I don't expect to change yours. But I'd like to know what it is you have a problem with.

I think the thing that he has a problem with, which I incidentally have a problem with also, is the fact that Keira Knightley does not, in any shape or form look like a bounty hunter. Lets hope her acting does her credit.

Unless you yourself are a bounty hunter, or have met several, surely you don't know what a bounty hunter looks like either? So your perspective is just as opinion based as ours. The only fact here is that I'm right and you're wrong :)

I imagine it is easier to deal with criminals once they are behind bars. My point about believability is she looks like a hollywood movie starlet with short hair and a shotgun, the other two do a decent job of looking like they could apprehend a gun wielding nutcase.
I'm sure that in the film she will be entirely believable but in that picture she looks like a little girl hanging out with her slightly dangerous uncles.

Well, if you put the real Domino Harvey in that picture she'd stick out just as much, imo.

We'll see once the movie arrives how "reality-based" it is. Maybe this is as pointless as arguing if it's believable for Uma Thurman to do what she does in Kill Bill.

Slight comparison error, Domino is based on a real life story... although I wish it weren't, Kill Bill is fictional. So it is pretty pointless in arguing....

I'm not one to be "out-nit-picked" so let me just note that while it's based on a real life character, the story is fictional. :)
Not that I think it will be as fantastical as Kill Bill, but it might be along the lines of Reservoir Dogs or True Romance.

this is the first time i have seen this image, looks cool, reminds me of a kind of kill bill, but with an actractive actress playing the lead role (thurman is a hog) and perhaps a decent story line and directing (Kelly is King).

Again, she looks like she could rip your face off in an instant, but at the same time looks strangely attractive with that piercing gaze of hers.
