Great news! 10 lucky cities come December will be able to see Emily’s film, The Girl in the Book, in theaters! It’s looking like New York will be one of the cities so I’m excited to finally get the chance to watch it in just a few short months!
Myriad Pictures has acquired the U.S. rights to The Girl in the Book, an indie drama starring Emily VanCamp and Michael Nyqvist (from Sweden’s version of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo), written and directed by Marya Cohn.
The film, which premiered at the Los Angeles Film Festival this year, stars VanCamp as Alice Harvey, a struggling writer and the daughter of a powerful book agent. Harvey grapples with writer’s block and a difficult junior book editor job. When she’s tasked with handling the re-release of a novel based on her own life, she’s forced to confront her painful past with help from the book’s author, played by Nyqvist.
Director Cohn’s previous work, a short film called Developing with Natalie Portman and Frances Conroy, won grand prizes at the Belgian Festival Mondial du Cinéma du Court Métrage and the St. Petersburg Message to Man Film Festival.
The Girl in the Book will be released by Myriad with Freetsyle Releasing and Freestyle Digital Media, with a 10-city U.S. theatrical and ultra VOD release in December. The film marks the third joint release between Myriad and Freestyle this year.
Filming started today in Montreal for the French film, “Pays”, from director Chloé Robichaud and Emily is to star in it. This will be her first bilingual movie role. For those of you who don’t know, Emily does speak French. Things worked out between the producing partners for the film since they knew Emily’s agent. Contact was made and the rest, as they say, is history. Emily even looks like who the director had in mind for the film. The team will be in Montreal for a week then move to film in Newfoundland for a month after that. She will play the role of an international mediator.
VanCamp will portray Emily Price, who balances family life and leading crunch negotiations between a Canadian politician (Nathalie Doummar) and the president of a country whose natural resources are being exploited, played by Macha Grenon.
This may be old news to some of you, but if it’s not, then great!
For international fans of Emily, you may be able to see her film, “The Girl in the Book”, sooner than you think!
Kirk D’Amico and his team will introduce international buyers in Toronto to the thriller starring Emily VanCamp and Michael Nyqvist.
The Girl In The Book premiered at the Los Angeles Film Festival over the summer and takes place in the cutthroat publishing world where a junior book editor must face personal demons and find the courage to write her own novel.

Can’t believe Revenge is ending tomorrow for good. I added the edited version of the following interview Emily did with Entertainment Weekly to the gallery. It is in the newest issue of Entertainment Weekly [May 15, 2015] which is on stands now. (If you get the issue and it seems different it’s because I got it from the digital issue)
With the series finale airing Sunday, we look back (and forward) with the primetime soap’s 29-year-old star.
To say that a lot’s happened on Revenge would be an understatement. The scorching-hot show about a dish best served cold saw Emily VanCamp spend four years as Amanda Clarke as Emily Thorne, plotting and scheming and pursuing her complicated agenda against the mighty Grayson family. And with the show ending Sunday, May 10, at 10 p.m. ET, Emily—VanCamp, that is, not Thorne—talked to EW about ending the series after four seasons, handling her character’s final moves (no, she’s not telling whether she survives the show), and gearing up for her next project: Captain America: Civil War.
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: What was it like filming your final scene? Did you know by then that it would be your last one for the show?
EMILY VANCAMP: My last scene was with Gabriel [Mann] and Nick [Wechsler], and they’re two of my very, very close friends. At that point we weren’t completely sure, which is kind of a bummer because it would have been nice to know that we were playing these characters for the last time—they’re so special to us. But at the same time, it’s almost nice that we didn’t know because it would have been almost unbearable to get through.
What were your thoughts when you heard this would be the series finale?
Well, it had been talked about a lot over the course of this season because we all knew, at a certain point, [Emily] has to get her revenge. So it was always a discussion as to how many episodes we could actually draw out of this story without disrespecting the fans and drawing it out so long that it becomes uninteresting, you know?
I think we did a really fantastic job of wrapping up the story within four seasons, and it just sort of felt like, well, if we come back, it’s going to have to be something totally different. I’m kind of happy that ABC allowed us to end this thing without keeping us in limbo. It’s a much nicer way to end.
So four seasons felt like enough?
Four years is a wonderful amount of time to do a TV show. Four’s been my lucky number: [I did] four seasons of Everwood, of Brothers & Sisters, of Revenge. You don’t have time to get sick of it, but you get to really flesh out these characters and develop them over a long period of time. I was always really happy with four.
What did you and the cast do when you found out? Did you call up Gabriel and Nick?
Oh yeah, we have several group feeds going, so you know, sending pictures of seasons 1, 2, and 3 back and forth. I think Gabriel sent 20 pictures to us. [Laughs] We were definitely going through the emotions of it all, but I think it’s bittersweet.
Do you think the finale will provide closure for fans?
Yeah, I do. I’ll put it this way: I think they’ll be satisfied. I think a couple of things happen that they’ve been waiting for for a long time. In the grand scheme of Revenge, I feel like we exhausted all of the different story possibilties. I think we’re ending in a good place, and I think it’s time to move on, as sad as that is.
