Writer Jennifer Deaton developed the project with Lucy Mukerjee-Brown at Film Independent’s Producers Lab, and Sundial Pictures is producing it hot off the release of the Jenny Slate-starring Sundance comedy Obvious Child.

This piece talks about potential SPOILERS for the X-Men franchise, including and up to X-Men: Days of Future Past.
Hello guys! I’m Victoria (Tori) and Jess and I are the new owners of Magnificent Famke Janssen! Jess and I actually co-run FamkeJanssen.org together, which brings me to our other wonderful news, Chanel has agree to it and we’ll actually be merging the two sites! So in the future you’ll be able to bookmark us at FamkeJanssen.org, as that will eventually become the new domain for the site.
We’re hoping to have most of the site merged over in the next month or two, so I’ll update you when that’s complete! In the meantime, be sure to follow us on Twitter for updates! Hemlock Grove returns next month so we’re hoping to see a lot more Famke news and photos in the coming months!
Netflix Announces Eli Roth’s Hemlock Grove returns in July.
Hemlock Grove is coming back to Netflix. The supernatural thriller series from executive producer Eli Roth will make all 10 of the season 2’s episodes on Friday, July 11.
The trailer just shows the mesmerizing Olivia Godfrey, played by Famke Janssen from X-Men, morphing through the screen as a snippet of music plays. I think they’re singing, “it feels better lying down,” which I’m not sure if you’re supposed do right after taking hemlock.
Hemlock Grove also stars Bill Skarsgård from Simon & The Oaks, Landon Liboiron from Terra Nova, plays a wolf man and Dougray Scott from Mission Impossible II.
Hemlock Grove follows the supernatural incidents of Hemlock Grove, Pennsylvania. The small town is reeling from a massacre. Last season was based on the book by Brian McGreevy. This season McGreevy will veer off into newer and darker corners.
The show will be run by Charles H. “Chic” Eglee, who worked on The Shield, Dexter and The Walking Dead. Hemlock Grove was nominated for a special effects Emmy last year.
Eli Roth told the media “I cannot wait for fans to see what’s in store for Season 2 – it is going to blow away all expectations. Netflix has been an incredible partner, and whenever we wanted to take the story in a dangerous direction, they encouraged us to go even further – into a scarier, darker, and sexier place. We guarantee you won’t see anything like this anywhere else on television.”
Famke Janssen has closed her deal to reprise her role in Taken 3, opposite Liam Neeson and Maggie Grace. Another film seemed a natural, since the franchise has done more than $600 million in global box office. Janssen has so far been limited to playing the helpless housewife, and I am not sure if it has occurred to the filmmakers at Europa, but Janssen has a very particular set of skills she has acquired over a very long career, skills that would make her a nightmare for the bad guys who show up in these movies. The Dutch actress first came to prominence as the femme fatale Xenia Onatopp in the James Bond filmGoldeneye, as she was cracking guys’ spines like walnuts with her aerobicized thighs. As X-Men’s Phoenix, she nearly destroyed the world with her powers. Neeson’s got to be tired by now, so isn’t it time to give Janssen a chance to kick some ass? She will next be seen in Screen Gems’ A Fighting Man with James Caan and Louis Gossett Jr and Eli Roth’s Netflix series Hemlock Grove. She’s repped by CAA and Brookside Artist Management.
Hello, my name is Claudia and I’m the new owner of Magnificent Famke Janssen. Lemme say what a honor this is for me, I have been a fan of Famke for a long time (since X-Men starting) and I’ve grown up such a dedication to this amazing actress. I also want to thank our previous owner Chanel for this opportunity, I hope I won’t be a disappointment to her and to you. There’s not much around for Famke so I’ll be working a bit on the background here and there to get some fixes done and waiting for something new to pop-up. I’m thrilled and can’t wait! Stay tuned!!!
X-Men actress Famke Janssen is to star in new Dutch thriller The Hero, which will be directed by her sister Antoinette Beumer (Loft) and has been written by her other sister Marjolein Beumer.
It will be the first time all three sisters have worked together on a film and is also the first starring role for Janssen in a Dutch feature.
Based on the novel by Jessica Durlacher, The Hero follows a Holocaust survivor who seeks revenge after masked men break into her house and shoot her husband and she is assaulted in the woods.
Janssen said: “We always talked about making a movie together and now we will have the chance to do so. I really look forward to this adventure with my sisters. Next to that it also feels great to star in a Dutch film for once.”
Producers are Rachel van Bommel and Antoinette Beumer of Millstreet Films.
