    Michael Winterbottom On Tackling the World of Adult Entertainment in 'The Look of Love' and Reuniting With Steve Coogan

    Paul Raymond was once the richest man in Britain.

    Sony Picks Up Michael Winterbottom's 'Bailout' Starring Jack Black, Filming To Start In January

    Film About The Amanda Knox Trial Also Still In The WorksWhen you're an independent filmmaker like Michael Winterbottom, who generally has a few projects on the go at any given time, it usually comes down financing and support to determine which film goes next and what remains on the backburner. And sometimes those decisions are made lightning fast. When we spoke to the director's frequent producing partner Andrew Eaton at the BFI London Film Festival last month, he was reserved about "Bailout" getting made saying, "That’s a juggling act between Jack Black’s schedule and whether we can do enough pre-sales to make it happen." Well, they need no...

    Over his career, Michael Winterbottom has hopped frequently from genre to genre, from subject matter to subject matter, rarely covering the same territory twice. But one of the few things he has returned to is the work of Thomas Hardy. The late 19th century British author has so far inspired two of...

    Michael Winterbottom Planning To Direct Beatles Movie 'The Longest Cocktail Party'

    'Four Lions' Writer Jesse Armstrong Penning Script For Liam Gallagher-Produced Film, But Johnny Depp Likely Won't Play LeadExclusive: Few directors have such a keen eye for music as Michael Winterbottom. From The Cranberries-stuffed soundtrack in his sophomore feature "Butterfly Kiss" to "24 Hour Party People," one of the best films about rock'n'roll ever made, to the perverse 50s cuts in last year's "The Killer Inside Me," he's always had a great sense for the right backdrop to the action, whether it be an original score or a song. And now, it looks like the director is heading towards tackling perhaps the Holy Grail of popular music, by mak...
