Brit Marling


Brit Marling is a Georgetown economics graduate with two films that premiered at Sundance this week. She wrote, starred in and produced both.

In the first, "Another Earth," which has science fiction overtones, she stars as a former convict who develops a relationship with the man whose life she changed before she went to prison. In the second, "Sound of My Voice," she is a cult leader.

As a college junior, Ms. Marling interned at Goldman Sachs. At the end of that summer, she participated in a 48-hour film festival. Making a film short that weekend was "like working investment-banking hours," but ultimately more gratifying, she said at the premiere party for "Another Earth" this week. "I knew I wanted to get better at telling stories."

Ms. Marling, who currently lives in Los Angeles, said that "Another Earth" was so low-budget the production couldn't afford to shoot in a prison. To get a shot where her character in the film is being released from jail, "I had to walk into a prison and say I was there to teach yoga," recalled Ms. Marling. "When they went to check if I was supposed to be there, we quickly shot the scene, I dropped the yoga mat and left. So the scene was the cost of a yoga mat. It's all in the spirit of illegal independent filmmaking."

Ms. Marling added she wasn't sure what all the fuss at Sundance would lead to. "But maybe it becomes a splinter that makes it easier to make the next project," she offered.

How great to see a thread on her! I was just watching a great interview on Indie Wire she did with Anne Thompson...I also heard she just got signed to UTA, so hopefully more projects are on the horizon. I can't wait to see Another Earth!

Glad to see I am not alone in my intrigue in her! Brilliant, gorgeous, and an interesting sense of fashion (seems to be quite into vintage pieces) to boot.

Steven Soderbergh, Robert Redford, and Tom Cruise Are All Trying to Cast Brit Marling


Everybody wants Brit Marling, but so far, no one’s got her. The ingenue crashed onto the Hollywood scene by starring in and writing the Sundance darling Another Earth, and now we hear she's being offered many coveted roles. Marling just passed, for example, on Magic Mike, Steven Soderbergh’s film about Channing Tatum’s early years as a male stripper. Even though the part only called for two weeks' worth of work, we’re told Marling passed because it would conflict with a still-tentative October 11 start to The East, a thriller about an FBI agent who infiltrates an ecoterrorist group that Marling co-wrote with Zal Batmanglij, who’d recently directed her in Sound of My Voice. Our spies say Fox Searchlight intends to make it, but only provided the studio can land a huge star to anchor it.

Two other rapidly coalescing pictures with enormous names are inquiring after Marling, too: We hear that Robert Redford has asked about her availability for The Company You Keep, an adaptation of Neil Gordon’s eponymous novel about a former Weather Underground militant (Redford) turned fugitive after being unmasked by an enterprising newspaper reporter (Shia LaBeouf). That picture starts shooting September 14.


We also hear Marling is circling Paramount’s One Shot, the recently green-lit “Jack Reacher” thriller starring Tom Cruise as Lee Childs’s infamous drifter. We hear Marling is being considered for the part of Helen Rodin, the defense attorney who squares off against her father, the district attorney of Indianapolis, to defend a sniper from multiple murder charges. It’s competing with Company, because it's scheduled to start shooting on September 27. There is no clarity yet as to which, if any, outside projects will get a commitment from Marling: For now, she's got choices.

^ I just saw "Another Earth" too...she's going to be a star. She's just so beautiful, intelligent and expressive. And I love her dark brows and light hair.

She's so lovely in this:
