    Harvey Weinstein May Have His Groove Back & The Greatest Hits From Recent Vanity Fair Profile

    Watch Out British Helmer Richard Ayoade, Harvey Scissorhands May Be BackAdmittedly, we might be behind the times and some of us just started parsing Vanity Fair's fairly massive Hollywood Issue tome. Written by Bryan Burrough, (the author of " Public Enemies: America's Greatest Crime Wave and the Birth of the FBI, 1933–34" which spawned Michael Mann's 2009 movie) the thesis of the article is essentially what you see in its (and our) headline: Harvey Weinstein is back.

Just this past weekend -- the first Friday after the Oscar nominations were revealed -- the film expanded to over 2,500 screens but there's just one little problem. An R-rating -- mostly found in one key sequence -- is keeping the film away from even bigger crowds and apparently educators who want to screen the film for their students. Last week, Harvey Weinstein revealed his desire to re-cut the film to pa...

    Paul Greengrass To Direct 3D 'Cleopatra' With Angelina Jolie?

    Producer Scott Rudin Always Figured Fox Would Lock In James Cameron For 'Avatar' SequelsEarly last fall, talk began heating up around a potential, mega-blockbuster "Cleopatra" with preliminary word putting James Cameron in the director's chair and Angelina Jolie in the titular role (she has long been eyed for it).

But to hear it from producer Scott Rudin, he always sort of figured that might happen. Speaking to Deadline about "Cleopatra" he says, "I’ve been a good friend of Jim Cameron’s since I was ...
