Former Orphan Black star Tatiana Maslany, Diego Luna (Narcos) and Emile Hirsch (The Chinese Widow) have joined the third and final season of Netflix’s Emmy-winning original series DreamWorks Trollhunters, from Oscar-winner Guillermo del Toro.

The join the returning cast from seasons one and two that includes Kelsey Grammer as Blinky, Mark Hamill (Dictatious), Lena Headey (Morgana), David Bradley (Merlin), Ron Perlman (Bular), Steven Yeun (Steve), Anjelica Huston (Queen Ursurna), Jonathan Hyde (Strickler), Amy Landecker (Barbara), Charlie Saxton (Toby), Lexi Medrano (Claire) and Fred Tatasciore (AAARRRGGHH!!!).

Maslany and Luna will voice Aja and Krel, two mysterious new students who unknowingly come to the aid of the Trollhunters team in the fight against Morgana. The duo will also reprise their roles and serve as the leads of the next installment in the Tales of Arcadia trilogy, DreamWorks 3 Below, set to debut on Netflix later this year.

Hirsch takes on the role of Jim Lake, Jr., originally voiced by the late Anton Yelchin. Yelchin completed his work on the first two seasons and a considerable portion of season three before his unexpected passing in 2016. Del Toro and his creative team found a unique way to incorporate a voice transition organic to the story and create a path for Hirsch, a dear friend of Yelchin’s ,to carry on his legacy and role. Yelchin’s performance has been left intact where possible and some portions have been merged with Hirsch’s performance to complete season three, according to Netflix and DreamWorks.

DreamWorks Trollhunters is created and executive produced by del Toro with Marc Guggenheim (Arrow, Legends of Tomorrow), Rodrigo Blaas (Alma), Chad Hammes (Dragons: Race to the Edge) and Christina Steinberg (Rise of the Guardians) serving as executive producers. Dan Hageman (The Lego Movie, Ninjago) and Kevin Hageman (The Lego Movie, Ninjago) serveas co-executive producers.

The series features a tale of two fantastical worlds that collide in an epic saga. Set in the fictional suburb of Arcadia, our unlikely hero, Jim, and his two best friends make a startling discovery that beneath their hometown lies a hidden battle between good trolls and bad, the outcome of which impacts their lives forever.

In DreamWorks Trollhunters Part 3 the fate of troll and human civilizations hang in the balance. The Trollhunters are racing to stop Gunmar and the now resurrected Morgana from bringing about the Eternal Night and shrouding the world in darkness forever. To defeat them, the team must seek the help of the legendary wizard Merlin to unlock his ancient magic and unleash a powerful weapon that will alter the course of their lives forever.

Premiering in 2016 to critical acclaim, Trollhunters introduced audiences to the seemingly quiet town of Arcadia and an ordinary kid who embarks on an extraordinary adventure in a hidden world right beneath his feet. The first season lead the 2017 Creative Arts Daytime Emmys with six wins, including writing for an animated program (Marc Guggenheim), directing (Rodrigo Blaas, del Toro), casting (Ania O’Hare, Mary Hildalgo) and a voice acting win for Grammer. The second season received four nominations for the 2018 Creative Arts Daytime Emmy Awards, including Outstanding Children’s Animated Series.

Tatiana Maslany and Mary Elizabeth Winstead are the frontrunners for the female lead in Gemini Man, an action movie to star Will Smith.

Ang Lee is directing the movie, which hails from Skydance and Paramount.

Smith is playing two roles in the unique actioner. One is that of Henry, an aging assassin who wants to get out of the business but finds himself in a battle with the ultimate opponent: his clone, who is 25 years younger and at the peak of his abilities.

Clive Owen, meanwhile, is in talks to play the head of the cloning program, one of the villains of the movie, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter.

Maslany and Winstead have read and are testing for the role of Danny, an operative who works for the same company as Henry and is tasked to surveil him. However, she soon teams up with him. Elizabeth Debicki (Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2) is also in the running for the female lead.

A decision for the part will be made soon as the movie is eying a February start with an international shoot that would include locations ranging from Savannah, Georgia to Budapest, Hungary.

Maslany is the award-winning actress who starred in her own clone project, Orphan Black. She starred with Jake Gyllenhaal in the drama Stronger.

Winstead is coming off a turn in season three of FX’s acclaimed Fargo.

The US premiere of “Stronger,” the movie about Boston Marathon bombing survivor Jeff Bauman, will not be held in a fancy theater in New York, Los Angeles, or even in Boston. Instead, the much-anticipated movie starring Oscar nominee Jake Gyllenhaal will screen first, on Sept. 12, at the Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital in Charlestown, where Bauman and 31 others injured in the bombings were treated.

“It’s important for us to be in that space,” says “Stronger” director David Gordon Green.

The movie, which arrives in theaters Sept. 22, is the second big-budget Hollywood film about the events of April 15, 2013, when two bombs detonated near the finish line of the Boston Marathon, killing three and wounding more than 260. Bauman, who was there to greet his then-girlfriend, lost both of his legs in one of the blasts.

“Patriots Day,” which came out last?winter, starred Mark Wahlberg as a Boston police officer and focused primarily on the bombings and the subsequent search for those responsible.

“Stronger,” based on Bauman’s book of the same name, is a very different sort of film. Green, whose diverse credits include the acclaimed teen drama “George Washington” and the stoner comedy “Pineapple Express,” said “Stronger” is a character piece, a discreet story set against the backdrop of a major news event.

“It’s the intimate architecture set within an epic framework,” Green said Friday. “We’re all familiar with the headlines, but this is particular to a relationship affected by the events of that day. When you get to know Jeff and Erin [Hurley, Bauman’s then-girlfriend], and his family members, there’s great drama and struggle and triumph and humor.

“For the audience, it’s very valuable to see these characters in a relatable way.”

In the interest of authenticity, Green said many of the real-life people who treated and worked with Bauman — including nurses, the surgeon, physical therapists, and the prosthetic team — play themselves in “Stronger.”

“This was a story we didn’t want to embellish with too much Hollywood glitz and glamour,” he said. “For example, when we were talking with the prosthetic technicians, they were speaking in a technical language I’m not familiar with, and it was a struggle to imagine how I could re-create that with actors.”

In addition to Gyllenhaal, who earned a best supporting actor nod for?his performance in “Brokeback Mountain,” “Stronger” costars “Orphan Black” actress Tatiana Maslany as Erin and Miranda Richardson as Bauman’s mother, Patty. (Gyllenhaal, Maslany, and Green are all expected to attend the premiere.)

Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital opened its new Charlestown facility just 12 days after the Boston Marathon bombings, and 16 of the 32 blast victims who were treated there had amputations.

“We opened the doors of the new hospital just in time and we wound up seeing the most catastrophically injured people,” says David Storto, president of Spaulding Rehabilitation Network. “For all the wrong reasons, this event provided an opportunity for the public at large to understand disability issues and rehab medicine, which are not commonly understood and appreciated as other medical sub specialties are.”

“Stronger” was partially filmed at Spaulding, including in the gym where the Sept 12. screening will be held. Before agreeing to host the premiere, Storto said the hospital needed to make sure that patients will be able to receive the therapy they need elsewhere at Spaulding.

“[The gym] is an inspirational space for patients to do their therapy and I think there will be nice synergy to see Jeff’s story there,” Storto said.

Green is likewise excited.

“We’ve designed what I hope will be a unique experience to show Boston what we’ve made,” the director said. “We’re taking something nontraditional and exhibiting it in a nontraditional way.”

It’s difficult to get through the trailer for Stronger — the real-life story of Jeff Bauman, who became a double amputee following the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing — without being brought to tears. Jake Gyllenhaal plays Bauman on screen and the movie’s poster, debuting on ET, shows him mid-physical therapy with the tagline, “Strength Defines Us.”

Director David Gordon Green tells ET that his film is more than just a tearjerker, though. “You’re in for a ride,” he said by phone. “That certainly expresses a side of the emotional intensity of the movie, but you might be surprised to find a good sense of humor woven in there as well. Expect a few chuckles alongside a tear or two.”

I’m also so happy to see Tatiana Maslany in this. She’s such a phenomenal actress that deserves to be cast in everything. What drew you to her and then what was it like working with her?
I was a fan of Orphan Black, like so many people, and was just blown away by her range and the diversity of her performance. You watch that show and you don’t know which one is her. [Laughs] She auditioned for this and when I got her in a room with Jake, it was very clear that there was a strong female character that could not be afraid of her empowerment and not be afraid of her vulnerability, someone who really challenged the expectations of the romantic lead in a movie. I loved the questions and concerns that she had, and the ferocity and the levity that she brings to Erin were very important to making this a balanced, complicated character, because it’s not just your obvious love interest. It was an opportunity for us to find someone and invite them into this emotional adventure.

We very lucky to get a chance to speak with Joey Klein, an actor and now writer and director of the powerful and challenging film The Other Half, which first debuted at SXSW, opened the Rendezvous with Madness Film Festival in November, and is now playing in select theatres from Mongrel Media. It was especially special for Klein for the press day to take place at the Gladstone Hotel, a place where his parents stayed years ago. Klein was very generous with his time, and his praise for co-stars, and real-life couple, Tatiana Maslany and Tom Cullen, who deliver searing performances in the film.

The following are excerpts from the lengthy interview that occurred.

Scene Creek: (gestures to poster) Are Maslany and Cullen your other half(ves)?
Joey Klein: Guess so, I mean, I’ve known them now for a while. But all because of this, I mean, I met her on an acting job, and someone said “check out Grown Up Movie Star“, and as soon as I saw it, I offered her this. We did my first BravoFACT together, and she started dating Tom around that time. I was as obsessed with him from his work on Weekend and I wrote a role for him anyways, it made sense as it was someone who fled where he was from. So by the time we made the film, we were all really close, but we kind of got to know each other through trying to make it, hoping to make it. I started writing something that became this years and years ago. She was attached four and a half, five years and he was attached two, two and and a half years. Bobby Shore, the D.P., was attached even before Tat. Nicole Hilliard-Forde really picked it up and carried it on her own for a while and was really the force behind getting it made. Jonathan Bronfman, if I can use a baseball analogy, was sort of the star reliever in seeing it through to production.

I’m developing a revenge movie hopefully with these cats, if we all get on the same page together, I mean, we will, but first it’s got to get on the page.

SC: There is heavy subject matter in this film, but it is also hopeful.
JK: This is not an autobiographical movie, but it is a personal movie. Yes, I wrote from a point of experience and a point of knowing a lot of this stuff, but I want to represent what grief over time is like and to look at what is true to me about the grace of two very sick people finding themselves these days. I wanted to be as respectful to the subject as I could, and I wanted to do it in a way that I could explore realistic hope. I appreciate you bringing up the hope aspect of it because I think there’s true hope in it. I want to put some love back in the world and I will do it any way that I can.

SC: What would you like an audience to get out of this film?
JK: My favourite films have saved my life a little bit, and I just hope that this film stands for something for anyone who unfortunately does know at all about this, and for anyone who is older than twelve, you’ve gone through something, maybe that you shouldn’t have.

Tatiana Maslany
Actor, #29

Finally, the awards shows got it right: Leo got his Oscar and Tatiana got her Emmy. After being snubbed in 2015, the 31-year-old Maslany, whom Hamilton actor Lin-Manuel Miranda once called “maybe the greatest actor alive,” took home the top prize for her superlative turn on Toronto-shot Orphan Black, a co-production by Bell and BBC America.

After a promising initial line-up, the Toronto International Film Festival has delivered more titles with their full Canadian slate. Among the line-up is Xavier Dolan‘s It’s Only the End of the World, Bruce MacDonald‘s new feature Weirdos, Deepa Mehta‘s Anatomy of Violence, as well as Two Lovers and a Bear, starring Tatiana Maslany and Dane DeHaan, which we have the first trailer for today.

We said in our review from Cannes, “Kim Nguyen’s Two Lovers and a Bear is a film that suffers from a bit of an identity crisis. Like an indie playlist stuck on constant shuffle, unapologetically reveling in a sort of manic unclassifiable genre. This isn’t always necessarily a bad thing, but, for some reason, Nguyen’s scattershot tonal shifts — which hop between a romance on the rocks; a self-serious study of grieving; and a surreal buddy comedy — can prove quite jarring. The film is, at its core, a look at how we choose to deal with grief and past trauma. Whether that happens to be with booze, destroying an arctic outpost, or even talking to a deadpan polar bear is another matter.”

Check out the trailer below for the film.
