Fonda Fell In Love with Redford

16 June 2005 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Jane Fonda fell in love with co-star Robert Redford when they made three movies together in the 1960s and 1970s - even though she was married at the time. The pair made The Chase, Barefoot In The Park and The Electric Horseman together between 1965 and 1979, and Fonda confesses she harbored secret unrequited desires for the silver screen idol throughout their working relationship. Fonda, who was married to Roger Vadim from 1965 to 1973 and Tom Hayden from 1979 to 1990, says, "There's something about Bob that's impossible not to fall in love with. I was smitten. I couldn't wait to get to work, wouldn't even get mad when he was his habitual one or two hours late. He never knew it, of course. Nothing ever happened between us except that we always had a good time together." »

'All the President's Men' Rockets Up Bestseller Charts

6 June 2005 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Controversial book All The President's Men and it's film spin-off have both shot back up US bestseller lists following the revelation that former deputy FBI chief W. Mark Felt was the mysterious 'Deep Throat' character who s parked the Watergate scandal. The behind-the-scenes account, written by The Washington Post journalists Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein, covers the events that led to President Richard Nixon's resignation in 1974. Felt unmasked himself as the mole earlier last week - ending 30 years of mystery and speculation. The DVD of director Alan J. Pakula's 1976 film version, which stars Robert Redford and Dustin Hoffman, has rocketed up website Amazon.Com's chart to number seven. Meanwhile, the book currently sits at number 19 on the internet retailer's chart - after beginning the week ranked above 10,000. Victoria Meyer, spokeswoman for the book's publisher Simon & Schuster, says, "It's a huge news story of historic importance, something the world has been speculating about. It's no surprise to us that there is consumer interest in learning more." »

The Sundance Institute announced Wednesday its selection of 13 projects for the annual June Filmmakers and Screenwriters Labs, scheduled for May 31-June 30 at the Sundance Village in Utah.

During the course of the Filmmakers Lab, each director will collaborate with actors and digital production crews, shooting and editing key scenes from their scripts. They also will participate in the weeklong Screenwriters Lab, when writers involved in five additional projects will join the group to participate in one-on-one story sessions with established filmmakers. Hungarian director Gyula Gazdag returns for his ninth year as artistic director for the Filmmakers Lab.

Newman To Reteam with Redford?

21 March 2005 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Paul Newman has hinted his final movie appearance before his retirement will be a big screen reunion with his Butch Cassidy And The Sundance Kid co-star Robert Redford. The veteran stars - who became Hollywood's two major heartthrobs after teaming up in the hit 1969 adventure and subsequently in 1973's The Sting - have been trying to kick start a reunion project for years, but to no avail. And Newman has only given himself one more chance of working with his pal, after announcing he'll quit the industry following one more starring role in a movie. He says, "I hate to talk about anything until the papers are drawn up, but we've been looking for something for 20 years and now we're looking harder. I hope something will come of it." »

Redford Denies Plan To Leave US

27 January 2005 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Movie veteran Robert Redford never contemplated leaving America if George W Bush was reelected in November, because he believes in standing up and not shying away from his political beliefs. The actor - a staunch Democrat supporter - was reported to have vowed he would move to Ireland if Republican Bush beat Senator John Kerry to win a second term in the White House. But Redford contends, "It wasn't true... I love Ireland, I have family heritage in Ireland, but I'm an American. I love it here and I'm not leaving just because of some barking dog on the TV. I'm not going to do that. We are who we are and we're not going to shy away from something we need to stand up for." »

Redford fears glut of filmmakers

23 January 2005 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

PARK CITY -- There is good news and bad news on the independent film front, according to Sundance Institute founder and president Robert Redford. The good news is that independent film is getting better, and there are more skilled independent filmmakers; the bad news is that independent film is getting better, and there are more skilled independent filmmakers. "I think there is wonderful talent developed," Redford said as the 2005 Sundance Film Festival got under way this weekend. "We find more and more mainstream actors and actresses coming into the independent worlds -- there's better parts. And there are so many people coming up. I think independent film is just going to keep getting better and better. Documentaries are going to be better. There is going to be an increase in quality just as there has been for the last 20 years." Yet Redford considers the future of independents problematic on two fronts: the availability of distribution platforms for independent films and exhibition space. »
