New Images from the Set of MY IDIOT BROTHER, Plus High-Res Stills from THE DEBT and THE TEMPEST

     August 6, 2010

We have a nice little set of images from a trio of films for you today.  The comedy My Idiot Brother recently commenced production in New York City, highlighted by the Jesus look that star Paul Rudd is sporting for the film.  Co-stars Janey Montgomery and Zooey Deschanel were also spotted on the set — one draped in a scarf, the other in a robe.  (You’ll have to hit the jump to see which is which.)

Meanwhile, Disney has released a pair of high-resolution stills for both the thriller The Debt and the Shakespeare adaptation The Tempest, which happen to share a cast member in Dame Helen Mirren.  Check out all the images after the break.

Elizabeth Banks, Emily Mortimer, Rashida Jones, and Adam Scott star alongside Rudd, Deschanel, and Montgomery in My Idiot Brother, which is described as “a comedy about family and the sacrifices it takes to deal with them.”  From the looks of the images, expect a fair helping of farce mixed in with the family dramedy.

I’ve culled my favorite set photos from Celeb Buzz, Lainey Gossip, and Kino Gallery (via Cinema Blend), but if you like what you see, each site has a collection worthy of your perusal.

Speaking of farce, this image of Alfred Molina and his crew cut chasing hair-everywhere Russell Brand  in period costumes is probably the most fun I’ll ever have with a single frame from The Tempest.  Then, of course, Helen Mirren tops it by surrounding herself in a ring of fire with her own Tempest still.  Touché, Dame Helen.

Julie Taymor (Across the Universe) wrote and directed this iteration of the classic Shakespeare play.  The Tempest will close out the Venice International Film Festival in September before it hits theaters on December 10th.

John Madden (Shakespeare in Love) is the director behind The Debt, a remake of the 2007 Israeli thriller of the same name.  The narrative structure posits Helen Mirren, Tom Wilkinson, and Ciaran Hinds as older versions of the characters played by Jessica Chastain, Sam Worthington, and Marton Csokas.  The Debt images only feature the younger versions of the characters, so sadly only one dose of Mirren in this post.

The Debt is slated for limited release on December 29th.  Here’s the official synopsis:

In 1965, three young Israeli Mossad agents on a secret mission capture and kill a notorious Nazi war criminal. Now, thirty years later, a man claiming to be the Nazi has surfaced in the Ukraine and one of the former agents must go back undercover to seek out the truth.
