Deadline: ‘Deadpool 3’: Emma Corrin Lands Lead Role In Marvel Studios Sequel

EXCLUSIVE: Following the news that Hugh Jackman would be reprising his Wolverine role in Marvel Studios’ Deadpool 3, Ryan Reynolds looks to have found his next co-star. Sources tell Deadline that breakout The Crown star Emma Corrin has joined the cast. Details behind the character are unknown other than they will play the villain.

Shawn Levy is on board to direct with Paul Wernick & Rhett Reese returning to pen the script. Wendy Molyneux and Lizzie Molyneux-Logelin penned a previous draft. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige will join Reynolds and Levy as producers.

This will mark the first Deadpool film in which Marvel Studios will work hand in hand with Reynolds and Team Deadpool. Feige’s involvement comes after he helped revamp the Spider-Man franchise when he came on to help in the creative effort for that Sony series.

Marvel has had its eye on Corrin going all the way back to the holidays, but working out what has become a busy schedule for the Emmy nominee had to be overcome before they could fully commit. Arrangements were settled during the past week, and Corrin is on board.

Corrin is best known for the role of Lady Diana Spencer in Season 4 of the Netflix’s The Crown, earning Golden Globe and Critics Choice awards as well SAG and Emmy nominations. Even though they would not appear in the most recent season, Corrin was hard to miss in 2022, with the Amazon drama My Policeman premiering at the Toronto Film Festival and the Netflix-Sony co-production of Lady Chatterley’s Lover bowing at Telluride.

Corrin can be seen onstage at the Garrick Theatre in London’s West End starring in Orlando, Neil Bartlett’s new adaptation of Virginia Woolf’s modern masterpiece and directed by Michael Grandage. They also recently signed on to the A-list ensemble of Robert Eggers’ Nosferatu, which also stars Lily Rose-Depp, Bill Skarsgard and Nicholas Hoult.

Corrin also recently wrapped production on the FX limited series Retreat.

IndieWire: Emma Corrin Was Shocked by How Much ‘Hate’ They Received Coming Out as Non-Binary

The “Crown” Emmy nominee recently landed a villain role in Marvel Studios’ “Deadpool 3.”

Emma Corrin’s coming-out in 2021 was not without its stumbles.

The actor, who uses they/them pronouns, was recently featured in Vanity Fair’s Hollywood issue alongside other up-and-coming generational talents. In the interview, Corrin discussed how the process of coming out as non-binary in spring 2021 led to difficult revelations about being an openly queer person in Hollywood.

At the time, Corrin publicly changed their pronouns and spoke about wearing a chest binder, but they told Vanity Fair that they didn’t notify their team the announcement was coming.

“I might have [messaged them] over WhatsApp and just said, ‘I’m going to post this,’” Corrin said. “I don’t think there was any big discussion about it.”

However, Corrin said, “Naively, maybe, it took me aback how much hate I got for that. It was quite a reality check. But for a lot of people, it did help. Especially around conversation of gender and stuff, it does help a lot of people to see someone living as a nonbinary person in the world. I know how much other people’s accounts helped me, that’s my motivation for keeping my social media at the moment.”

Corrin also spoke about playing feminine roles like Princess Diana on “The Crown,” which earned them an Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series Emmy nomination in 2021, and more recently leading “Lady Chatterley’s Lover,” also on Netflix. They said they’re certainly open to playing male roles in the future. Corrin was most recently cast as a villain in Marvel Studios’ “Deadpool 3” opposite Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman.

“There aren’t a lot of nonbinary parts out there,” Corrin said. “My experience on this earth has been a female one, up until recently, and I still love all those parts of me. It’s interesting that I’m not offered male parts, but I would equally be drawn to that! I suppose it’s also what the industry sees you as, and I think, hopefully, that is shifting… I would love to play nonbinary, new parts, male parts. Anything, as long as it’s right.”

Corrin’s remarks come at a time both challenging and liberating for queer storytelling and performers in the film and TV space. In a recent GQ UK interview, “The Last of Us” star Bella Ramsey, who came out as non-binary in January, spoke out on vitriolic reactions to the HBO series’ LGBTQ storylines and characters: “I know people will think what they want to think. But they’re gonna have to get used to it. If you don’t want to watch the show because it has gay storylines, because it has a trans character, that’s on you, and you’re missing out.”

BBC: Emma Corrin: The Crown star calls for gender neutral awards

The Crown star Emma Corrin has called for the best actor and best actress categories at major film awards to be merged into a single, gender-free one.

“I hope for a future in which that happens,” Corrin told BBC News.

The star, who identifies as non-binary and uses they/them pronouns, added: “I don’t think the categories are inclusive enough at the moment.”

The organisations behind the Baftas and Oscars have indicated they are engaged in discussions about the subject.

“It’s about everyone being able to feel acknowledged and represented,” Corrin said.

The 26-year-old previously won a Golden Globe and was nominated for an Emmy for their performance as Princess Diana in series four of The Crown – but that was at a time when Corrin was still accepting she/her pronouns.

They are starring in two high profile films this year – My Policeman and Lady Chatterley’s Lover.

“It’s difficult for me at the moment trying to justify in my head being non-binary and being nominated in female categories,” Corrin said.

Reflecting on the fact that they largely play female roles, Corrin wondered: “When it comes to categories, do we need to make it specific as to whether you’re being nominated for a female role or a male role?

“You can discuss awards and the representation there, but really the conversation needs to be about having more representation in the material itself, in the content that we are seeing for non-binary people, for queer people, for trans people, because then I think that will change a lot.

“When those parts come up, meaning more people and more actors are playing those roles then I think there will be more of an urgency with which these questions will be addressed.”

A Bafta spokesperson said the organisation was “engaged in proactive and thoughtful consultation on this subject”. The organisation behind the Oscars, the Academy, is also believed to be conducting research and holding discussions on the issue.

Debate about gender-free categories is gathering steam, with the music industry leading the way. The Grammys went gender-neutral in 2012, while the Brit Awards merged their male and female solo categories into an artist of the year category this year.

Chart-topper Adele went home with the first trophy. However, in her acceptance speech, she said: “I understand why the name of this award has changed, but I really love being a woman and being a female artist. I do. I’m really proud of us.”

This is a more complicated debate than it looks. While gender-neutral categories are seen by some as socially progressive, they could have unintended consequences and there are several factors to consider.

Firstly, this decision could actually result in less equality in the long term. The Oscars currently guarantee two male and two female acting winners every year, but a merger could mean it skews one way or the other over time.

Take the most recent winners as an example. It is unlikely Jessica Chastain would have beaten Will Smith if they had been competing in one overarching category.

That is partly because this year’s best actress race was wide open, whereas Smith was considered a dead-cert in his category.

But it’s also because the best picture category tends to have more overlap with best actor than best actress. Chastain’s film wasn’t even nominated for the top prize, unlike Smith’s. As a result, women could have a higher hill to climb to score a win.

In the long-term, it’s not hard to imagine the outrage if a decision like this led to a repeated loss of recognition for worthy winners, particularly women.

That’s not the only obstacle. The Academy is made up of thousands of members, many of whom have been around for decades and are keen to protect the traditions of the Oscars. Getting some of them on side could be difficult.

The feelings of other actors should also be taken into account. If gender-neutral categories were implemented at the Oscars, that would halve the number of acting awards from four to two, permanently reducing an actor’s chances of winning an Oscar during their lifetime by 50%.

While many Hollywood stars consider themselves progressive, they also have rather large egos and will not be enthusiastic about the prospect of forgoing trophies (and the career boost that comes with them).

It’s worth noting the existing model does not discriminate against trans actors – Elliot Page and Laverne Cox could both be nominated in the current gendered categories – however it does leave non-binary stars without a home.

But how should this be addressed? Creating a new, separate category for them wouldn’t be realistic as there would not be enough nominees. Another proposed solution where actors submit for the gender of the character they are playing would only be a short-term fix, until non-binary characters become more common in films.

So far, only a few film awards have eliminated gender-specific acting categories, but in August, the Independent Spirit Awards, which honour filmmakers outside the major studios, became one of the most high-profile awards groups to ditch separate best actor and best actress categories and combine them into one prize, with 10 nominations.

The move followed similar steps by the British Independent Film Awards,the Gotham Awards, and the Berlin Film Festival.

Corrin’s comments come as they prepare to take to the stage in an adaptation of Virginia Woolf’s novel Orlando, which was published in 1928 and explores gender identity.

Orlando begins life as a young man in the 16th Century, who travels through time and gender to become a woman in the 20th Century, having affairs and heartbreaks along the way.

“On a very personal level, I really relate to the journey of gender and the celebration of fluidity,” Corrin said.

They have become something of a pin-up for non-binary identity, sharing their gender journey on social media. Last year they also posted pictures of themselves wearing a chest binder.

Corrin said they decided to share their story publicly because “it was a journey that was at the very centre of who I am, who I was when I started talking about it”.

“Your gender identity is so much to do with how you feel and it ties into so much of how you want to be seen or are seen by people and that can be very triggering or can make you uncomfortable if you don’t feel you are being seen honestly or correctly.

“I think that it was necessary for me to be open and honest about it because otherwise I would have felt I was being perceived wrongly.”

They believe “visibility and representation” is key to the “necessary and urgent” discussions around gender in society at the moment.

“I know how much I’ve been helped by people in the public [eye] who have been open and generous with their journeys and how much it’s helped me feel comforted and acknowledged and like I am on the right path.

“And I think that if I could help in any way by being open, then that would be good.”

They said they did not worry that being so up front would limit the kind of roles they got offered in the future.

“I would never sacrifice integrity or honesty because of work that I may or may not get. My being non-binary is not a rejection of femininity or my femininity in any way. It’s sort of an embrace of that.

“I still want to play women, my experience on this earth has been a female one – and now it’s sort of a very fluid one.”

Orlando is at the Garrick Theatre from 26 November to 25 February 2023.

Deadline: Emma Corrin To Headline FX Limited Series ‘Retreat’

EXCLUSIVE: Coming off an award-winning turn as Princess Diana on Netflix’s The Crown, Emma Corrin has been tapped as the lead of Retreat, FX’s limited series from The OA creators Brit Marling and Zal Batmanglij. Corrin will play Darby Hart, the amateur sleuth at the center of a murder mystery set at a secluded retreat.

Retreat is a radical conceptualization of the whodunit with a new kind of detective at the helm — a gen Z amateur sleuth named Darby Hart (Corrin). Darby and 11 other guests are invited by a reclusive billionaire to participate in a Retreat at a remote and dazzling location. When one of the other guests is found dead, Darby must fight to prove it was murder against a tide of competing interests and before the killer takes another life.

Marling and Batmanglij will write and direct the series which they executive produce with Andrea Sperling. FX Productions is the studio.

Corrin’s portrayal of Princess Diana in Season 4 of Netflix’s The Crown received an Emmy nomination and won Golden Globe and Critics Choice awards for Best Leading Female Actor in a Drama Series. Having wrapped Michael Grandage’s feature My Policeman opposite Harry Styles for Amazon Studios, and then starring in the praised two-hander play Anna X in London’s West End, Corrin is currently filming Laure de Clermont-Tonnerre’s Lady Chatterley’s Lover for Sony/3000 Pictures/Blueprint/Netflix Films. Corrin, whose recent credits also include the feature Misbehaviour with Kiera Knightley and Season 1 of Pennyworth for Epix, is repped by Insight Management, Circle of Confusion, and Public Eye PR.

Netflix Queue: The Crown’s newest star makes her royal entrance.

As far as proposals go, Emma Corrin’s invitation to join the fourth season of The Crown was indeed fit for a princess. “I got taken to this insane manor house, which of course I’m used to now,” the actor says with a laugh. “But back then it was like, Woah, this is crazy.” After she finished reading an audition scene with Josh O’Connor, who plays Prince Charles, Corrin remembers director Benjamin Caron getting down on one knee: “He said, ‘Will you be our Diana?’” Naturally, Corrin said yes.

Her turn as the Princess of Wales, ages 16 to 28, has earned applause from both Diana devotees and those less familiar with the royal. She plays a young woman trying to find her way in the world, at various points vulnerable, steely, joyful, and stricken. Diana is trapped by a troubled marriage and facing impossible public scrutiny. In Corrin’s hands, she is entirely relatable and deeply sympathetic.

The courtship between Corrin and The Crown was a long one. The first call came when Corrin had just graduated from Cambridge University and moved to London, where she was couch surfing and trying to find work. Her agent said The Crown was looking for people to read Diana’s lines while they auditioned actors for the role of Camilla Parker Bowles.

“I was so new, it wasn’t really intimidating,” Corrin remembers. Her agent told her who would be in the room: The Crown’s creator, Peter Morgan, executive producer Suzanne Mackie, and Caron. “I didn’t know who any of those people were,” Corrin explains. “My agent was like ‘O.K., that’s probably a good thing. You won’t scare yourself.’”
She decided to approach the opportunity as an audition. She memorized the scene despite being told she could reference the script, and she enlisted her mother, a speech therapist, to help her work on sounding like Diana. Corrin spent the morning of the reading speaking her lines from the corner of the audition room. That afternoon, the director asked her to move in front of the camera.

“She was extraordinary,” remembers Mackie. “As she walked out, we all looked at each other and said, ‘We think we may have just found our Diana.’ I just knew in my bones.” Adds Caron: “She was the only person I really wanted. She had that amazing quality of vulnerability and strength. But of course, you have to be sensible.”
By “sensible,” he means thorough. It would be almost eight months before Corrin got the call to audition at the manor. During that period, she filmed the TV series Pennyworth and tried not to worry about her prospects with The Crown. She already possessed an actor’s necessary ability to stay the course, although her experience was essentially limited to theater productions at Cambridge. Even the rejections she received from acting schools after graduating from her all-girls boarding school never made her doubt her path.

Corrin was raised with her two brothers 30 miles from London, in Royal Tunbridge Wells. “I spent the majority of my childhood living in a fantasy world,” she says. “I would create worlds for myself through writing, or by going outside for days on end, living in things I’d built in the woods, and getting my two brothers to play fantasy worlds with me. It was always about acting. I think that requires some kind of blind faith and determination.”

Deadline: ‘The Crown’ Star Emma Corrin To Star Opposite Harry Styles In Amazon’s ‘My Policeman’

Coming off her Golden Globe and SAG nominations for her portrayal of Princess Diana in The Crown, Emma Corrin will star opposite Harry Styles (Dunkirk) in the Amazon Studios’ romantic drama My Policeman. Based on the acclaimed novel of the same name by Bethan Roberts, My Policeman will be produced by Greg Berlanti, Robbie Rogers and Sarah Schechter of Berlanti-Schechter Films, in association with Cora Palfrey and Phillip Herd at Independent Film Company and MGC.

The story takes place in the late 1990s, when the arrival of elderly invalid Patrick into Marion and Tom’s home, triggers the exploration of seismic events from 40 years previous: the passionate relationship between Tom and Patrick at a time when homosexuality was illegal. Styles and Corrin are set to star as Tom and Marion, respectively.

Tony and Olivier Award winner Michael Grandage will direct from an adapted screenplay by Academy Award and Emmy nominee Ron Nyswaner.

Corrin is best known for her role as Lady Diana Spencer in Season 4 of the Netflix world-wide, award winning hit series The Crown, which earned her Golden Globe, SAG and Critics Choice nominations for Best Actress. Emma joined Season 3’s stellar cast including Olivia Colman, Tobias Menzies, Helena Bonham Carter and Josh O’Connor in the latest iteration of the show that released in November 2020. Emma has also been selected by The Hollywood Reporter as one of their ‘Next Gen’ breakout actors and named as one of Screen International’s ‘Stars of Tomorrow’ 2020. Last March, Emma made her debut film appearance in Misbehaviour, a historical drama film following the story of a group of women from the Women’s Liberation Movement seeking to disrupt the 1970 Miss World beauty competition, which took place in London. Cast as ‘Jillian Jessup’, the Miss South Africa contestant, Emma starred alongside Keira Knightley, Keeley Hawes and Gugu Mbatha-Raw, amongst others. Emma’s previous television roles include her appearance as ‘Esme’, a recurring role in the 10-part Warner Brothers/EPIX series Pennyworth.

She is repped by Insight Management and Circle of Confusion. The Daily Mail first reported the news.
