(….) Confirming the news that Serena will open MAMI’s 2014 edition, festival director Srinivasan Narayanan told Mirror, “We wanted to start on a romantic note, so Serena, which is a gorgeous romantic period piece, became a unanimous choice. The film hasn’t released anywhere across the globe as yet.” Interestingly, Serena was to feature Angelina Jolie in the lead role and was to be directed by Black Swan director Darren Aronofsky. But the project never kicked off with that pairing, landing instead with Lawrence and Cooper, who have already collaborated on two Oscar nominated films, Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle.
When asked if the two stars will be seen in the city on the opening night, Narayanan said, “An official invitation has been extended to them and efforts are on to bring the cast to Mumbai. We will have complete clarity in the coming week. Director Sussane Bier is likely to be present for the premiere.”
I never wanted any of this. I never wanted to be in the games. I just wanted to save my sister and keep Peeta alive.
