If there’s one thing that fashion loves more than creating amazing clothes and accessories for us to wear, it’s giving back. Hence, super-chic designer Gabriela Hearst teamed with Italian leather goods brand Tod’s for a shoe collaboration that benefits Save the Children, an organization providing children in global communities with the tools for a better future. For all pairs of these incredibly cute brogues that are sold, 20 percent of the profits go to the charity. To bring awareness to the cause, stylish celebs like Dakota Fanning, model Lauren Hutton, street-style star Miroslava Duma, and even Hearst posed for a campaign in the shoe.

This super-easy slip-on style, which includes a perforated Morse code detail trim, is now available at Tod’s stores nationwide and at Tods.com. With five colorways to choose from, there’s a shoe for everyone. While the price tag comes in a little steep at $645, you can rest assured that your dollar is going to a worthy cause.

Dakota Fanning will star in Janusz Kaminski’s upcoming thriller “The Postcard Killings” with Good Films producing and financing.

“The Postcard Killings” is based on James Patterson and Liza Marklund’s book. The screenplay was written by Marklund and Andrew Stern.

Good Universe is handling worldwide sales on the project and will introduce to buyers next week in Cannes.

“The Postcard Killings” centers on a New Yorker as his life is thrown into turmoil when he learns that his newly married daughter has been brutally murdered. As he digs into the case, similar crimes are reported across Europe with each killing accompanied by a postcard sent to a local journalist.

As he follows the trail of clues, a young reporter — played by Fanning — receives the next postcard. Principal photography is scheduled for January in Munich, London and Scandinavia.

Fanning will be seen in Lionsgate’s “American Pastoral,” directed by and starring Ewan McGregor, and Ben Lewin’s “Please Stand By.”

Kaninski won the Academy Award for best cinematography for his work on “Schindler’s List” and “Saving Private Ryan.” His directing credits include “Lost Souls,” “Hania” and “America Dream.”

Good Films financed and produced Brad Furman’s “The Infiltrator,” which stars Bryan Cranston, John Leguizamo and Diane Kruger.

Lionsgate has set its release schedule for American Pastoral, a crime drama based on Philip Roth’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, helmed by Ewan McGregor in his directorial debut. The film, which also stars McGregor, Jennifer Connelly, and Dakota Fanning, will open in limited release on October 21 and then expand the following weekend. It will go against The Orchard’s Christine starring Rebecca Hall which will be in its second weekend of limited release as well as PureFlix’s I’m Not Ashamed.

Adapted for the screen by John Romano, American Pastoral follows a family whose seemingly idyllic existence is shattered by the social and political turmoil of the 1960s. McGregor stars as Seymour “Swede” Levov, a once legendary high school athlete who is now a successful businessman married to Dawn (Connelly), a former beauty queen. But turmoil brews beneath the polished veneer of Swede’s life. When his beloved teenage daughter, Merry (Fanning), disappears after being accused of committing a savage act of political terrorism, Swede dedicates himself to finding her and reuniting his family. What he discovers shakes him to the core, forcing him to look beneath the surface and confront the chaos that is shaping the world around him.

Written and directed by Martin Koolhoven, the film will also feature Dakota Fanning and Guy Pearce, as well as Harington’s Game of Thrones co-star Carice Van Houten.

“A tale of powerful womanhood and resistance against the unforgiving cruelty of a hell on earth. Our heroine is Liz, carved from the beautiful wilderness, full of heart and grit, accused of a crime she didn’t commit, hunted by a vengeful preacher — a diabolical zealot and her twisted nemesis. But Liz is a genuine survivor; she’s no victim — a woman of fearsome strength who responds with astonishing bravery to claim the better life she and her daughter deserve.” [Source]

The Kerry director is set to work with Dakota Fanning on a silver screen adaptation of the memoir Brain on Fire: My Month of Madness.

The book is an adaptation of Susannah Cahalan’s struggle with mental health problems. Fanning will portray the lead character as she struggles with her inner torment.

Bestseller Brain On Fire begins with Cahalan’s admission to a psychiatric facility at just 24 years of age.

It has been picked up by Hollywood star Charlize Theron’s production company Denver and Delilah Films.

The Monster star will act as a producer on the movie but it has not yet been announced if she will also take up a role in the flick.

Barrett (inset) said he was “honoured” to bring Cahalan’s story to life with two of Hollywood’s leading ladies.

The Pilgrim’s Hill filmmaker is no stranger to tackling tough subjects on screen. His first two features both focused on sensitive plots. His second, Glasslands, will be screened at the prestigious Sundance film festival to compete in the World Cinema Dramatic Competition.

TRAFFICKING

The film, starring Jack Reynor and Toni Collette, depicts the story of a young Irish taxi driver who gets caught up in the world of human trafficking.

Talented Barrett will also pen the screen adaption of the harrowing tale told in the Cahalan’s memoir.

Shooting is due to begin in May in both Vancouver and New York. [Source]
