A fan’s greatest gift is when old and unseen interviews surface, and this has happened with these incredible video clips from the Australian programme “The Movie Show”.

First, there’s a report on the 1994 Cannes Film Festival, where “Muriel’s Wedding” had its world-premiere, featuring interviews with P.J. Hogan and Toni Collette, who was 21 at that time. Then, a 1997 interview with Toni and director David Parker on the release of the ill-fated “Diana and Me”. A 1999 interview with Toni to promote the Australian release of “The Sixth Sense”, as well as a report on the theatrical release of “Japanese Story”. Finally, as a special treat, “The Movie Show” paid a visit to the set of “Muriel’s Wedding” in 1994. This footage was also used for the making of which was later included on the DVD, but this report features an array of additional footage and interviews with the cast and crew, including P.J, Toni, Rachel Griffith and Bill Hunter. Very insightful material and definately a must-see. Enjoy the new clips.

Filming has commenced on director Pascal Chaumeil’s (Heartbreaker) adaptation of the Nick Hornby novel A Long Way Down. The story revolves around a group of strangers who coincidentally meet on the top of a London skyscraper on New Year’s Eve where they individually had gone to commit suicide. The four strangers, played by Pierce Brosnan, Toni Collette, Aaron Paul, and Imogen Poots, make a pact to stay alive until Valentine’s Day at least, and the story follows this group of unlikely friends.

The four central strangers are set as a once-beloved TV personality, single mother, failed musician turned pizza-delivery boy and a “sassy teen” respectively. Hornby is the author behind such great works as High Fidelity, About a Boy and Fever Pitch, so the source material is a solid foundation. Jack Thorne (How I Live Now) wrote the screenplay and production is taking place in England and Spain. Hit the jump to read the full press release (which includes a synopsis) and to check out the first image above. Also, an on-set picture has been added to the gallery, with thanks to our affiliate site Aaron Paul Online.

According to Screen Daily, Sam Neill and Rosamund Pike have joined the cast of Pascal Chaumeil comedy-drama A Long Way Down, which is now shooting in the UK and Spain. Pierce Brosnan, Toni Collette, Aaron Paul and Imogen Poots star in Jack Thorn’s adaptation of Nick Hornby’s novel. The comedy-drama follows a group of people who meet at the top of a London skyscraper on New Year’s Eve while considering whether to commit suicide. Finola Dwyer and Amanda Posey produce, HanWay handles sales and Lionsgate distributes in the UK.

A winner in the 2009 Women of Style Awards, actress Toni Collette talks to Jessica Rowe about babies, the big screen and being a homebody. Toni Collette is one of our biggest stars—though you’d never know it. The 39-year-old likes nothing more than hanging out in her trackie-dacks, on the couch, with her family of four—husband and musician Dave Galafassi, daughter Sage, four, and son Arlo, 18 months. But there’s no denying acting is in the DNA of Collette, who these days finds herself drawn to playing mother figures, women who are flawed, raw and honest. In her latest performance, she becomes the gutsy and ballsy Shaz; the film, Mental, is a “dramedy”, written and directed by PJ Hogan, who brought Collette to the world’s attention with his 1994 film, Muriel’s Wedding. And just as with those beloved Heslops of Porpoise Spit, the family dynamic in Mental is a little, well, twisted. The complete interview with Toni Collette can be read over at InStyle’s website.

The “Mental” promotion is in full force with several new interviews being broadcast on Australian television. Two, from Sunrise on 7 and The Age, have been added to the video archive. A first clip from the film, in which Shaz teaches the Moochmore girls about the Australian history – and how to deal with bullies, has been added as well, alongside a compilation of television spots to release the Australian release. All clips can be found in the video archive.

As reported, Australia’s 60 Minutes has profiled Toni Collette on its current episode with a very nice interview, scenes from “Mental” and a trip down the memory lane with director P.J. Hogan at a screening of “Muriel’s Wedding”. The profile can be watched in the video archive, captures have been added to the image library.

This Sunday, the Australian edition of 60 Minutes will feature of profile on Toni Collette to promote the Australian release of “Mental”. She’s a chick from the ‘burbs – a down-to-earth Aussie sheila who’s risen to the top in Hollywood.Toni Collette got her start in that wonderfully odd little Australian movie “Muriel’s Wedding”. Her role as the dumpy, wedding-obsessed Muriel from Porpoise Spit set her on the road to international stardom. Of course, it didn’t hurt that she also happened to be blessed with bucket loads of talent. In the eighteen years since, Toni has won a Golden Globe and an Emmy as well as been nominated for an Oscar. Now she’s come full circle playing Shaz in the new Australian Film “Mental.” It’s another quirky local comedy. And it’s taken her back to the place she loves best – home.
