Read More

Thanks to reader Bryce for point us to the news that Josh Brolin has let slip a few interesting tidbits from Anderson’s new film. The Film Stage got the story from Cigs & Red Vines, which got the story from The Independent. Here are a few choice quotes: “I just did a movie for P T Anderson that I didn’t understand. The writing of Thomas Pynchon is so Shakespearean. It…

Meryl Streep to Star in Diablo Cody’s Ricky and the Flash, to be Directed by Jonathan Demme

Read More

Jeff Schneider got the scoop for The Wrap about a project on the horizon directed by Jonathan Demme, written by Diablo Cody, and starring Meryl Streep. Pic is about a rock n’ roll star who abandons her family to live her dream but then comes home and expects she can start parenting from scratch. Sounds great. I love that projects are developed and made because Streep is involved.


Gone Girl Footage Shown at CinemaCon

Read More

Reactions to the footage shown at CinemaCon for Gone Girl are all positive: From the Hollywood Reporter: Gone Girl’s dark trailer showed Ben Affleck’s character dealing with a media frenzy after his wife (Rosamund Pike) disappears.

This isn’t Oscar season, pure and simple. When is the last time a movie came out in the spring and won Best Picture? “The Silence of the Lambs” in 1991?

Angelina Brings Unbroken to Cinemacon

This might be her first but it won’t be her last – Angelina Jolie brought seven minutes of Unbroken to Cinemacon. It’s already being called an Oscar juggernaut, which of course guarantees it will getting serious reaming when it opens. Can’t people start measuring and managing their expectations now? But, yeah, written by the Coen brothers (+ Richard LaGravenese and William Nicholson), lensed by Roger Deakins? How can it go…
