    Bradley Cooper Pitches Himself To Play Tom Buchanan In Baz Luhrmann's 'The Great Gatsby'

    With Baz Luhrmann being irritatingly cutesy and coy regarding his presumably forthcoming adaptation of "The Great Gatsby" -- all he'll really admit these days is that it's something he's researching -- what we know for certain isn't much, except that Carey Mulligan has been selected to play Daisy in...

    Arthur Laurents Says 'Gypsy' With Barbra Streisand No Longer Happening; Tom Hooper Eyed Directing

    Barbra Streisand doesn't get in front of movie cameras very often, but when she does, it always creates a bit of a stir, so no surprise that back in January when news dropped that a film version of the musical "Gypsy" was in development with the actress/singer to star, buzz started building.

    SXSW Video: Catherine Hardwicke Talks Red Riding Hood, Twilight, Women in Hollywood

    Women directors really do have a tough time. So many factors work against them, no matter how successful they are, in terms of what the powers that be will let them do. Big-budget action films? Mimi Leder and Kathryn Bigelow are among the few who have been allowed into that club. Back in the day whe...

    SXSW: Paul Reubens Says He's Heard Rumors That David O. Russell's Camp Is Trying To Bury 'Nailed'

    Says The Film Is "Great" And Features Strong Performances From Jake Gyllenhaal & Jessica Biel; Reveals That He Was Screamed At The First Day On SetThe sordid saga of David O. Russell's aborted "Nailed" continues. The short version of the story goes like this: production on the film was stopped and started numerous times as shady financier David Bergstein kept running out of money and eventually the film shut down completely with only one scene left to be filmed. The movie has since changed hands to new owners who are eager to finish the film, but David O. Russell has washed his hands of the movie, and moved on to shoot the critically acclaime...

    SXSW: Paul Reubens Says Judd Apatow Is Swearing Him To Secrecy On The Plot Of The Pee Wee Movie

    Actor Wants To Use CGI To De-Age His FaceEver since it was revealed that comedy giant Judd Apatow would be producing and possibly directing a new, Pee Wee Herman movie, interviewers have been trying to squeeze details out of Apatow without much luck. Recently, all Apatow would confirm is that it wouldn't be a direct sequel and the film would exist very much in a world of it's own without necessarily reflecting to previous films. However, Paul Reubens has proven to be much more chatty about the gestating film and in a panel conversation this afternoon at SXSW, the actor revealed that as much as he wanted to spill the beans, Apatow's iron grip ...
