Brand New Gatsby Poster

This was just posted on Facebook by Deadline, so I assume it’s new? But if it isn’t, it’ll do ’til the new gets here. The Great Gatsby was pushed back from last year and there was a story that Baz Luhrmann needed extra money to do reshoots. Luhrmann is a spectacular spectacular onto himself and I can’t believe we’ll finally get a chance to see this movie. I remain very…

No, I’m so excited about it, it’s crazy. I’m not allowed [to talk in detail though]. The other day everyone was like, ‘Whoa, stop talking about it.’ So…

Improvise, adapt, overcome. So the news broke a while ago that George Lucas had sold LucasFilm to Disney to “let Hooper take a turn.” So now Disney will start making the new movies, etc. Twitter had a total meltdown over it, with names like Brad Bird and Joss Whedon being bandied about.

When Venus in Fur was nominated for a Tony Award and won a slew of NY awards including a Tony for its star Nina Arianda, I filed it away with dozens of of other great stage productions that I figured I’d never have a chance to see.
