Hilary Swank to Star in Sci-Fi Thriller I Am Mother

Hilary Swank is starring in the science-fiction thriller “I Am Mother,” which has started shooting at South Australia’s Adelaide Studios, Variety has learned exclusively.

Swank, who won best actress Academy Awards for “Million Dollar Baby” and “Boys Don’t Cry,” is joining Clara Rugaard in a unique mother-daughter story.

Rugaard portrays the first of a new generation of humans raised by “Mother” – a kindly robot designed to repopulate the earth following the extinction of mankind. But their unique bond is threatened when a blood-drenched woman (played by Swank) inexplicably arrives, calling into question everything she’s been told about the outside world.

“I Am Mother” is based on an original concept by director Grant Sputore and writer Michael Lloyd Green. The screenplay was on the 2016 Black List.

“I Am Mother” is Sputore’s feature debut. The special effects team at WETA Workshop (“Avatar,” “The Lord of The Rings”) has created the titular robot.

The movie is produced by Southern Light Films’ Timothy White and the Penguin Empire’s Kelvin Munro. Anna Vincent and Michael Lloyd Green co-produce. Executive producers are Paris Kassidokostas-Latsis, Terry Dougas and Jean-Luc De Fanti from Rhea Films (“American Made”) along with Bryce Menzies, Philip Wade, John Wade and Sputore.

“It is a privilege to welcome Hilary Swank to our film,” Sputore said. “She is a remarkable performer who always brings tremendous commitment and honesty to the screen. I’m excited about the journey ahead with Hilary and the talented Clara Rugaard.”

Swank’s credits include Tommy Lee Jones’ “The Homesman,” “Freedom Writers,” “P.S. I Love You” and Steven Soderbergh’s comedy “Logan Lucky.” She will next be seen in Danny Boyle’s television series “Trust,” starring as Gail Getty, the mother of kidnapped heir John Paul Getty III.

“I Am Mother” is an Australian production financed by Hercules Film Investments with major investment from Screen Australia and the South Australian Film Corporation in association with Adelaide Film Festival, Screenwest, Lotterywest, Fin VFX, Blockhead and Kojo.

Mister Smith Entertainment is handling international sales, with WME Global’s Graham Taylor overseeing U.S. sales. Studiocanal is handling distribution in Australia and New Zealand. Swank is repped by WME.

Mission Statement: Hilary Swank’s New Luxury Clothing Line Merges High Fashion With High Performance

When Academy Award-winning actress and producer, Hilary Swank, couldn’t find clothing that met all of her lifestyle needs she designed it herself. After years of perfecting the concept, in the fall of 2016 she launched her start-up Mission Statement, a new crossover women’s clothing category that goes far beyond athleisure and merges high-fashion design with high-performance textiles.

Swank’s superbly constructed collection offers an array of jackets, dresses, sports bras, and pants with a variety of layer-able separates made from sumptuous technical fabrics that are eco-friendly like washable cashmere and leather.

Swank’s outerwear is exceptional both in terms of style and materials as well as versatility and construction. The sports bras look and fit more like a well-constructed bustier rather then the bust crushing alternatives. Her thoughtfully designed tennis-inspired dresses easily transition from the courts to an elegant dinner with a change of shoes and fit like couture. Her leggings (just like her sports bras) support you in all of the right places without constricting blood flow or cutting into you when worn for prolonged periods.Read More

Hilary Swank Returns to the Big Screen

After a three-year break from acting, Hilary Swank is back on the big screen. Her new role as an FBI investigator in the comic action film “Logan Lucky,” directed by Steven Soderbergh, is her first appearance in a movie since she went on hiatus to take full-time care of her father, who was diagnosed with severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

“When you walk away from that one thing that defines you, you say…‘I’m so much more than that,’ ” she says. “I’m a woman. I’m a daughter. I have other ambitions.”

A two-time Academy Award winner for her performances as a transgender teen in “Boys Don’t Cry” (1999) and a boxer in “Million Dollar Baby” (2004), Ms. Swank, 43, plays a dogged detective in her latest. In the film, she tries to track down the thieves who took cash from a Nascar raceway.

She is known for portraying tough characters. “I like strong people, people who really stand for something and have backbones,” she says. “I’m drawn to people who are underdogs, who have to be strong, maybe because of my own circumstances.”

Ms. Swank grew up in a trailer park in Bellingham, Wash., where her mother was an executive assistant and her father was a chief master sergeant in the Washington Air National Guard.Read More
