Filming Underway On John Crowley's 'The Goldfinch'
24 Jan 2018 : Nathan Griffin
Principal photography begins today on ‘The Goldfinch’, Warner Bros. Pictures and Amazon Studios’ highly anticipated film adaptation of Donna Tartt’s globally acclaimed best-selling novel, which won the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction and the Andrew Carnegie Medal for Excellence in Fiction.

The drama is being directed by BAFTA Award winner John Crowley (“Brooklyn”) and features a multigenerational cast led by Ansel Elgort (‘Baby Driver’) as Theo Decker and Academy Award winner Nicole Kidman (‘Big Little Lies’) as Mrs. Barbour. 

‘The Goldfinch’ is being produced by Nina Jacobson (‘The Hunger Games’ franchise, ‘American Crime Story’) and Brad Simpson (‘World War Z’, ‘American Crime Story’) under their Color Force banner.  Mari Jo Winkler-Ioffreda and Sue Kroll are serving as executive producers.  The screenplay is by Oscar nominee Peter Straughan (‘Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy’), based on the book by Donna Tartt, which spent 30 weeks on The New York Times Best Sellers list. 

Theodore “Theo” Decker was 13 years old when his mother was killed in a bombing at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.  The tragedy changes the course of his life, sending him on a stirring odyssey of grief and guilt, reinvention and redemption, and even love.  Through it all, he holds on to one tangible piece of hope from that terrible day...a painting of a tiny bird chained to its perch.  The Goldfinch.

The film also stars Oakes Fegley (‘Pete’s Dragon’) as Young Theo, Aneurin Barnard (‘Dunkirk’) as Boris, Finn Wolfhard (‘Stranger Things’, ‘It’) as Young Boris, with Sarah Paulson (‘The Post’, ‘American Crime Story’) as Xandra, Luke Wilson (‘The Royal Tenenbaums’) as Larry, and Jeffrey Wright (‘The Hunger Games’ franchise) as Hobie. 

The film’s main ensemble cast also includes Ashleigh Cummings (‘Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries’) as Pippa, Willa Fitzgerald (‘Little Women’) as Kitsey Barbour, Aimee Laurence (‘Chicago P.D.’) as Young Pippa, Denis O’Hare (‘American Horror Story’) as Lucius Reeve, Peter Jacobson (‘Colony’) as Mr. Silver, Luke Kleintank (‘The Man in the High Castle’) as Platt Barbour, Joey Slotnick (‘The Secret Life of Walter Mitty’) as Dave, Robert Joy (‘CSI: NY’) as Welty, and newcomer Ryan Foust as Andy.

The behind-the-scenes creative team includes multiple Oscar-nominated director of photography Roger Deakins (‘Blade Runner 2049’, ‘Sicario’, ‘Unbroken’), Oscar-nominated production designer K.K. Barrett (‘Her’), costume designer Kasia Walicka Maimone (‘Bridge of Spies’, ‘Ready Player One’), and editor Kelley Dixon (‘Breaking Bad’).

Slated for release on October 11, 2019, the film is a presentation of Warner Bros. Pictures, in association with Amazon Studios, a Color Force Production, a John Crowley Film.  It will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.
