NME – It’s roughly two weeks before the release of Stranger Things season four and the cast are chatting to NME via video call, swapping stories for our entertainment. They’re currently picking their fave lines from the new episodes.
“Mine’s: ‘That’s a lot of Ricks’,” says Maya Hawke, who plays ice cream-slinging teen Robin in the hit show. “Great line,” agree co-stars Joe Keery and Natalia Dyer, grinning as they remember the scene.
None of them can, of course, reveal anything more about this multitude of Ricks (spoilers!) – but that just adds to the intrigue. Stranger Things is perhaps the biggest show on TV – and its return the most highly anticipated this year.
n Stranger Things season four, each character has been pushed forward – by the terrifying things they’ve experienced so far, and also just because they’re older and wiser (in most cases).
Hawke points to Robin being a bit braver now. “She used her wicked intelligence to help fight the Russians last season and I think you’ll see her learn a lot about what’s going on in the world of Hawkins,” she says,” and use her brilliant mind to tackle those things as well.”
THR – Maya Hawke is set to appear onscreen alongside her mother, Uma Thurman, for the very first time, The Hollywood Reporter can reveal. Hawke has been cast in Yale Entertainment’s dark comedic thriller The Kill Room, also starring Samuel L. Jackson and Joe Manganiello.
The Stranger Things and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood star has been added to the cast alongside other newly unveiled names, including Debi Mazar (Goodfellas, Little Man Tate, Entourage) and Larry Pine (Succession, The Royal Tenenbaums, Moonrise Kingdom).
From writer Jonathan Jacobson and director Nicol Paone, The Kill Room is set to begin shooting this spring in New Jersey and New York. Yale’s recently launched sales and distribution banner, Great Escape, will handle international sales and co-rep the U.S. rights with ICM Partners in Cannes.
The Kill Room centers around a hitman, Reggie (Manganiello), his boss (Jackson), an art dealer (Thurman) and their money laundering scheme that accidentally turns the hitman into an overnight avant-garde sensation, forcing her to play the art world against the underworld.
Jordan Yale Levine, Jordan Beckerman and Jon Keeyes are producing under their Yale Productions banner alongside Anne Clements of Idiot Savant Pictures, Paone, Thurman, Dannielle Thomas and Jason Weinberg from Untitled Entertainment, as well as William Rosenfeld of Such Content. Executive producers include Robert Kapp, Scott Levenson, Jason Kringstein, Richard Switzer, Ian Niles, Philip W. Shaltz, Bradley Pilz, Michael J. Rothstein, Jesse Korman, Jeffrey Tussi, as well as Michael and Jackie Palkovicz.
Hawke is represented by CAA, Untitled Entertainment and Hansen, Jacobson, Teller, Hoberman, Newman, Warren, Richman, Rush, Kaller, Gellman, Meigs & Fox.
