First stills from ‘Emperor’ starring Sophie and Adrien Brody have been added to the gallery.
“Emperor” is an action/epic about a young girl who seeks revenge on the holy roman Emperor Charles V for the death of her father. It happens in a world of wealth, debauchery, violent retaliations, sex, manipulation and treason … it’s the 16th century revisited.

Short film featuring Sophie for Gemfields’ “Ruby Stories” campaign.
WWD – Sophie Cookson recently appeared in a series of short films for Gemfields in which she donned jewelry with Gemfields Mozambican rubies. The British actress, who starred in “The Huntsman: Winter’s War,” alongside Charlize Theron, Emily Blunt and Chris Hemsworth, just wrapped filming “Kingsman: The Golden Circle,” with Julianne Moore, Channing Tatum and Halle Berry. WWD sat with Cookson to talk about her style, the Kingsman movie costumes and future projects.
WWD: Can you talk about “Kingsman: The Golden Circle?”
Sophie Cookson: No, Matthew Vaughn will murder me! But it is great, and the cast this time is just mind-blowing. I was just working with Michel Gavin the other day, who for me is just a complete legend. I have a Kingsman suit this time — which is about all I can say. That is so much fun. When in modern life do you ever get a suit made for you like that? I remember the first session we had, I was wearing what I thought was the finished suit. And it was like, “That is not right” and just ripping the arm off with such great force and thinking, “Oh, my god, you are ruining the suit,” but they know what they are doing, and it is great seeing masters like that.
WWD: In the first Kingsman film, did you have any favorite looks?
SC: Well, obviously the nightclub. That was a fun look to have, but just our Kingsman suits, all of our jumpsuits that we practice in. It is very cool, and I am all about that — cool and casual.
WWD: Did anything interesting happen while filming?
SC: There are always the days when the puppies come on set. That is always interesting, and hearing someone like Matthew Vaughn become a dog whisperer will remain with me for a very long time.
WWD: Can you tell us about filming the “Huntsman: Winter’s War?”
SC: Working with Chris [Hemsworth] is hilarious, nonstop. He’s been on the film for four months and is still sneaking around corners pretending to be a Ghostbuster or something. He’s got a heart of gold, and he always makes everyone around him smile.
VARIETY – Lisa Loven Kongsli, Sophie Cookson and Peter Franzen have joined Bel Powley in the World War II drama “Ashes in the Snow.”
Radiant International is launching sales at the Cannes Film Festival on “Ashes,” which is currently in production. Jonah Hauer-King, Martin Wallstrom, Sam Hazeldine, James Cosmo, Adrian Schiller and Tom Sweet also star.
Powley portrays a 16-year-old aspiring artist who is separated from her family amidst Stalin’s reign of terror in the Baltic region during World War II. She risks her life and uses her art to secretly send messages to her imprisoned father to let him know she is still alive.
Ramunas Greicius filmed the winter scenes earlier this year in Lithuania. The final summer scenes will shoot this May and June.
“Ashes” is based on Ruta Sepetys’ 2011 novel “Between Shades of Gray,” based on the true story of Irena Spakauskiene. The film adaptation is written by Ben York Jones (“Like Crazy”).
Director Marius Markevicius is also producing alongside Chris Coen and Zilvinas Naujokas. Jonathan Schwartz is executive producing. Markevicius directed the documentary “The Other Dream Team,” and produced “Like Crazy” and “The Way Back.”
We were waiting for this news and Sophie has officially confirmed that she will be back as Roxy in the ‘Kingsman’ sequel (titled Kingsman: The Golden Circle)! We will update the site and twitter once we know more about it.

Here’s the first trailer for ‘The Huntsman: Winter’s War’, in theaters April 2016. Sophie plays Pippa and unfortunately, that is the only thing we know at the moment but we will update the site/twitter as soon as we have more information.
Before Ravenna was defeated by Snow White, she stood by as Freya was betrayed and fled into the wilderness, where she built an icy palace and amassed an army of killer huntsmen. Eric and Sara were her two most beloved warriors, until they fell in love and she banished them. Years later, after learning that her sister has been defeated, Freya seeks to reclaim Ravenna’s Magic Mirror, only to find that it can help to resurrect her sister. Together, the pair team up to start a new reign of terror, as only evil queen sisters can.
