Kaufman's Frank or Francis which starts shooting in a few weeks has filled out it's cast rather nicely.The film has Steve Carrell, Nicolas Cage, Jack Black, Kate Winslet, Kevin Kline, Elizabeth Banks, Catherine Keener, Paul Reubens on board. The film sounds delightfully nutty. I hope it's ready for a fall festival debut.

"Despite certain reports, THR can confirm Kate Winslet is not in the cast."

Normally I hate anthology films but this one has quite a number of great directors attached. :

Finnish filmmaker Aki Kaurismaki passed through Rotterdam on Friday. He was booed by some when he turned up late and dishevelled at the Q&A before his film Le Havre but the film itself was very warmly received. Kaurismaki told the local press that he will soon be joining forces with Manoel De Oliveira, Jean-Luc Godard, Pedro Costa and Victor Erice on a film to mark the status of Guimäres in Northern Portugal as European Capital of Culture in 2012.

You could have just written Erice will be giving us something new and I'd be fawning in anticipation.

WOW Godard has a pretty good track record with Anthologies I think.

Cool. Maybe Soderbergh will build movies around Mara now instead of that dopey Tatum character.

Tatum's in Side Effects too. After that and Magic Mike (starring Tatum) is the Liberace thing, then Soderbergh's supposedly done with filmmaking.

Indeed, like Ryan Reynolds and Chris Evans, it's hard to get past his frat-boy/jock exterior, even when he's trying to be taken seriously. He was passable in "Haywire," but I can't help but think a better actor could've done more with his role. :?

Natalie Portman joins Malick's Lawless and Knight of Cups. So now both films have three actors in common: Bale, Blanchett and Portman.

I wonder if both films are somehow related to each other.

Brian de Palma is set to direct a remake of a 1986 Burt Reynold flick, called Heat, starring Jason Statham, from a script by William Goldman (!). The plan is to shoot this immediately after Passion. I love that we're getting two De Palma movies, but it's kind of strange that he's doing to re-makes back to back...

A nice piece on Bret Easton Ellis's planned collaboration with Paul Schrader and porn star James Deen. Trust Ellis to find some valid critical means of appreciating James Deen. At least Schrader will direct, which is encouraging.
If it does happen, I wonder how it might function as a possible final part in a Schrader trilogy on porn, with Hardcore and Auto Focus as the first two parts. A couple of my favorite quotes from this piece:

Quote:
He was also worried about whether he could do the job. Mr. Ellis insisted he could. “We would not be having this conversation if he couldn’t pull it off, if he was simply a leaden actor who was just being hired because of the size of his dick.”
They addressed the question over dinner. “He was worried that he had no acting training,” Mr. Ellis recalled. “I said, ‘That’s not a problem, there are plenty of bad actors who do.’”

and
Quote:
If Mr. Deen gets the gig, don’t expect him to go the way of Sasha Grey, who retired from the porn business last year after breaking into the mainstream. “I got into porn because I want to do porn,” Mr. Deen vowed.

Interview with co-screenwriter

Looks like a low budget affair, could turn out to be not bad though and apparently it's the first time Tolkien will feature in a film.

Deadline just posted an article about a new "Garbage Pail Kids" film that's set to go into production. Does the world really need this?

The person they have planned as a director is pretty good though. I see how this could come out well.

Maybe this is common knowledge, but, uh, the upcoming Madagascar sequel has as its sole screenwriter Noah Baumbach :shock:
