Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Steve Pemberton Will Star in West End Staging of Martin McDonagh’s The Pillowman

Initial casting has been announced for the London production of Martin McDonagh’s The Pillowman, which begins a 12-week engagement July 24 at the Duke of York’s Theatre. Opening is scheduled for August 5.

Golden Globe winner Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Nocturnal Animals, Nowhere Boy, The Wall) and BAFTA winner Steve Pemberton (The League of Gentlemen, Psychoville) will star with additional casting to be announced. Matthew Dunster directs the first-ever West End production of McDonagh’s Olivier-winning The Pillowman, which was seen at the National Theatre in 2003.

In a statement McDonagh said, “The Pillowman is a play that’s always been very close to my heart, in terms of its combination of the darkest of dark comedy with its exploration of the nature of story-telling itself. It’s a play that I haven’t wanted to have staged in London until I could find the perfect director and the ideal cast for it, and having worked with Matthew previously on Hangmen, and been an admirer of Steve and Aaron’s work for many years, I feel it’s the perfect time to find out what a whole new generation makes of this peculiar tale.”

In the play, a writer in a totalitarian state is questioned by the authorities about a spate of murders that bear similarities to his short stories. Is this life imitating art or something more sinister?

Empire Street Productions presents The Pillowman and will offer a Pay What You Can ticket pricing throughout the whole run. Producer James Bierman said, ”I really hope that with this play, this cast, and for this production, we can welcome both established and new playgoers into the West End, and that this pricing accessibility will give those audiences the thrill of live theatre at its very best.”

Oscar-winning writer McDonagh’s Hangmen begins previews on Broadway February 28 at the Golden Theatre.

Exclusive: Quicksilver Won’t Return Anytime Soon Says Aaron Taylor-Johnson

Aaron Taylor-Johnson, the actor who portrayed Quicksilver in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, has confirmed that the character will not reappear anytime soon. Although Quicksilver made his first appearance in the MCU in a mid-credits scene for Captain America: The Winter Soldier, moviegoers got to know him better in Avengers: Age of Ultron as Pietro Maximoff, the twin brother of Wanda Maximoff aka Scarlet Witch.

The orphaned Maximoff twins hated Tony Stark and the Avengers due to an experience they had in their early childhood. Eventually, HYDRA recruited Pietro and Wanda to become subjects in an experiment that gave them their superpowers. While Wanda developed great mental powers, Pietro gained the ability of superhuman speed. However, the two eventually switched sides to help the Avengers defeat Ultron with Pietro sacrificing his life to protect Hawkeye and a child. But in the MCU, characters often return from the dead, such as Loki, so it’s possible that Quicksilver could return, too.

If Quicksilver does return to the MCU, though, it won’t happen anytime soon. In an exclusive interview with Screen Rant, Taylor-Johnson denies any plans for his return to the MCU. This is despite several upcoming Disney+ projects that could make it happen, including WandaVision and What If…? Although Taylor-Johnson didn’t rule out the possibility of Quicksilver returning, he was adamant that Marvel has not approached him about it, so fans shouldn’t get their hopes up. He said:

“I think we’re both open to possibilities, like the Marvel Universe like it has been over the years, but obviously yes, I’m aware of the Disney+ platform and all of the shows that are going and I’m still in touch with a lot of the people. I mean, I think it’s safe to say that no, I’m not gonna… there will be no appearance of me coming out or Quicksilver appearing anytime soon.”

Instead, Taylor-Johnson is busy with other projects, including the upcoming A Million Little Pieces. Taylor-Johnson not only stars in the film but also co-wrote the script. A Million Little Pieces, based on James Frey’s controversial memoir about a recovering alcohol and drug addict, is directed by the actor’s wife, Sam Taylor-Johnson. It releases on Dec. 6.

Taylor-Johnson has previously said he would be interested in reprising his role as Quicksilver if Marvel asked him to return. There’s certainly a demand for the character, many fans were disappointed with how little screen time he got in the MCU. At least Evan Peters got more screen time in the Quicksilver role as part of the X-Men franchise. Disney now owns the film rights to the X-Men, though, so that universe will likely get a reboot. That could potentially lead to an opportunity for Taylor-Johnson to return as Quicksilver, but it remains to be seen. That still means one thing is for sure: Quicksilver’s return to the MCU won’t happen anytime soon.

Sam and Aaron Taylor-Johnson on why their relationship works despite 23-year age gap

Aaron Taylor-Johnson, 29, and Sam Taylor-Johnson, 52, were never bothered by their 23-year age gap.

“I knew instantly with Sam that I’d found my soulmate,” Aaron recently told The Telegraph of meeting Sam on the set of the 2008 film “Nowhere Boy.” “I knew instantly that I wanted to spend the rest of my life with this person. I remember it very well, and a year to the day [after] I met her I proposed. I knew I wanted a family with her, I knew I wanted kids, and a month later she was pregnant with our first child.”

Aaron suspects that their age difference never bothered him because his acting career thrust him into adulthood at an early age.

“I worked in an adult environment from an early age; I had open, direct conversations with directors, producers, actors, where my opinions would be valued and matter,” he said. “I grew up pretty quickly — I left school at 15. I had a totally different upbringing from my kids.”

He continued, “When I met Sam I’d already lived a life far beyond that of most of my contemporaries — I didn’t relate to anyone my age. I just feel that we’re on the same wavelength.”

And while some seem to disapprove of their unconventional relationship, Aaron and Sam choose to ignore their critics.

“All that is my personal life, it’s sacred to me and it’s beautiful. But there is a lot of negativity around from other people,” Aaron said. “That’s their problem and their issues and however they perceive life. I live my life to its fullest and I operate from my instincts and from my heart, and I try to be as open as possible.”

Sam agrees with her husband, who she refers to as an old soul.

“I can’t dwell on what other people think or say,” Sam told the newspaper. “With Aaron it just literally felt like we were so connected, straight away. I didn’t know what it was then — we were connected when we were working and it was professional, and that connection grew more powerful as time went on and never diminished.”

She added, “And it’s the same today as it was then.”

Aaron and Sam share two daughters, 9-year-old Wylda Rae and 7-year-old Romy Hero. Sam also has two daughters, Angelica, 22, and Jessie, 13, with her ex-husband Jay Jopling. Together, Aaron and Sam live with all four children in their Hollywood Hills home.

“I’m so lucky to have such a supportive husband,” Sam said. “When he works, I don’t, and vice versa.”

Aaron added, “I really enjoy it. There’s nothing more empowering than supporting my wife in her passions and ambitions; I’ve never felt more — what’s the opposite of emasculated? Empowered.”
