Is there going to be a scene where Ben Stiller's character spreads his spunk onto book spines? I can imagine a lion would have fun with that, since I imagine they can produce a lot more than say...a deranged child.

He did a 60-page rewrite. The credit block on the poster reads "Screenplay by Eric Darnell and Noah Baumbach."

Kore-eda's latest to star Masaharu Fukuyama as a despicable salaryman.

That was a prequel the studio (and apparently no one else) wanted.

Just wanted to point out (especially since there's no separate thread) - Tatsumi is now playing in NYC, at MoMA.

Sadly, I broke my foot, so will have to see it in another not-too-distant city in a few months or hope that it comes out on some form of home video.

There is an article posted on screendaily about Lars Von Trier's Nymphomaniac that has a few new details. :

In the wake of reports that Charlotte Gainsbourg is set to star in Lars von Trier’s Nymphomaniac, producer and Zentropa co-founder Peter Aalbæk Jensen has revealed that the film is to be two separate feature-length parts.

Shooting on both films is due to begin in August near Cologne, with the project supported by North-Rhein Westphalia.

“We are making two films. It is a big operation. I personally hope that we should be ready for Cannes next year,” Aalbæk Jensen commented. “We will shoot both and edit both – and we want to finish both at the same time.”

As previously reported, there are likely to be two versions of each film: one which will be explicit and one which will be softer. “We will probably blur the central points of the human body for the release worldwide but we will probably make one unblurred that will be for screening maybe in Cannes.”

The film traces the erotic life of a woman from the age of zero to 50. The first part will deal with her childhood and adolescence. The second part will deal with her adulthood.

Aalbæk Jensen would not confirm casting but said “we have some pretty big names in the movie which proves that in spite of his (von Trier’s) strange quotes from Cannes last year, his value for actors to work with him has never been better.”

It is probably going to be in quite a different vein (perhaps more Anaïs Nin?) but that write up is reminding me a little of those Jan Bucquoy films The Sexual Life of the Belgians 1950-1978 and its second part Camping Cosmos.

I would hope that an uncensored cut is released somewhere on Blu-ray and wouldn't just be intended for festivals.

I like it. It wasn't the best Corneau film I've seen, but it is certainly worth searching out for.

Fine performances, dumb movie. There are several recent French thrillers that are much better, but de Palma might be able to turn it into something interesting.

Suspiria (David Gordon Green, 2013)

#1819 Post by bainbridgezu » Wed May 16, 2012 3:35 pm

Looks like David Gordon Green's remake of Suspiria is actually happening: Isabelle Fuhrman (Orphan) and Isabelle Huppert star; Luca Guadagnino (I Am Love)--who was involved with the 2008 incarnation of the project--may still be producing. Green's putting together a great team, but this is still going to be a huge "wait-and-see."

Some more info on the rest of the cast and creative team.

Hm, not who I had in mind, but I was looking forward to her turning up in a substantial role again. Orphan was sort of a gem in its own right.

Agreed: Orphan is pretty fantastic, and she was great in it.

Regarding Fuhrman's casting, here are some of Green's thoughts on the project (specifically in light of Black Swan):
I want this to be about 14, 15-year-old girls, rather than women who are Natalie’s age. It made not want to do what Black Swan kind of did with the psychology and thriller elements of older characters. If anything, I want to focus on the younger, more naïve kinds of characters—the wide-eyed, Snow White version of the movie, rather than a more sophisticated, sexual version of it.

That is a hell of a cast and crew. The only one I'm not so sure about is DGG himself. He's proven himself to be an extraordinary visual stylist, but can he do justice to one of the most stylish horror films ever made?

I've always thought Suspiria was an odd film to want to remake since it's purely an exercise in style, and the narrative is not that interesting on its own. It doesn't promise many opportunities to put your own stamp on. So is DGG trying to redo the look of Suspiria (an inherently losing battle) or does he just want to make a movie about ballerinas and witches?

Also, haven't DGG's films become less and less stylish over time?

That's the part that worries me. He's moved away from tastefully sunlit Malickian abstraction to... well, I don't quite know how to describe the visual style of Pineapple Express and Your Highness. Grimy classicism?

I'm also curious about who will do the score since the original Goblin one is at least as important as the cinematography in making the film great.
