New Movie: Four Saints

Sorry for the lack of updates. Emilie has been keeping a really low profile lately so there hasn't been anything to update. And the rumours of Emilie being replaced in Legend of the Guardians did turn out to be true. She is not in that movie.

Finally we have some new news. Emilie has been cast as Mairi Chisholm in a new movie called Four Saints. It's based on a true story and it's a period piece about world war 1. You can read more about the plot below:


The film opens when the British Army finds itself overwhelmed by massive casualties. Major Munro, a physician attached to the Royal Army Medical Corps (RAMC), decides to organize a volunteer Flying Ambulance Corps. He recruits four women: Elsie Knocker (British), Mairi Chisholm (Scottish), Dorothy Fielding (Canadian) and Helen Gleason (American). The women are sent to a field hospital in Furnes, Flanders. But before long, Elsie discovers that many wounded soldiers die of shock during the transport from the trenches to the hospital. She implores Dr. Munro to move the field hospital closer to the front. When he declines, the four women steal an ambulance, packed with supplies, and begin to operate their own dressing station -- in an abandoned village called Pervyse, a stone's throw away from the trenches. Pervyse is just north of the Ypres 'Salient,' a dangerous bulge in the German lines which actually exposes the Allied soldiers to German artillery from three sides. Many dramatic events intervene, and despite tremendous challenges the post survives until April of 1918, when the massive Ludendorff Offensive threatens not only the lives of the women but the imminent collapse of the Allied armies. 'Four Saints' is inspired by historical characters and events Written by Isbouts, Jean-Pierre

Four Saints will be directed by Jean Pierre Isbouts and it also stars Selma Blair, Rhona Mitra, Kris Holden-Ried, Arnold Vosloo, Lorena Rincon and Kim Poirier.
