    Hollywood Feminist of the Day: Nia Vardalos

    I had the opportunity to meet Nia Vardalos recently at an event in LA and she was so impressive. She has written a terrific piece about the horrible homophobic comments that 30 Rock Tracy Morgan star Tracy Morgan included in a recent stand-up act. I love 30 Rock, but this dude has no business incl...

    Yet Again Simon Pegg Promises Work Will Begin on 'The World's End'

    Yet another press interview for Simon Pegg, and yet another question about the third part of his "Three Flavours Cornetto" trilogy --"The World's End" -- that his pal Nick Frost and their director Edgar Wright, have been working on for what feels like seventeen years. While in the past the actor has enjoyed playing possum over when he'll get the damn thing written -- it was announced as a working title some years ago, but nothing since -- we can take some solace in the fact that at least he's setting some time aside to work on the script. Aside from demonstrating that he's now a seasoned veteran at doling out meaningless buzz phrases (he want...

    Cross-Post: Super 8 & Spielberg’s Chick Issue by Thelma Adams

    If Super 8 is truly a mash note to Steven Spielberg, as my husband says, then it also echoes some thing I detest about SS. He’s horrible on the women issue. His immediate reaction to the opposite sex is awe and fear: put her up on a pedestal and drag her down.

    Christian Bale In Talks To Star In Darren Aronofsky's 'Noah'

    Though "Black Swan" elevated Darren Aronofsky from talented arthouse director to a helmer with box office clout and awards season cachet, that doesn't necessarily make a film like "Noah" any easier to finance. Announced as a strong candidate for his next film, the project has been in the works since at least 2007 and earlier in the year, it was revealed that Aronofsky was collaborating with comic book artist Nico Henrichon on a graphic novel take on the tale to spur interest in feature adaptation. Well, the gambit worked. The $130 million dollar film already has New Regency staking half of the cost and should this bit of casting come though, ...
