Eckhart's Ben and Jen Inquisition

31 December 2003 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Actor Aaron Eckhart faced a regular barrage of questions from his mother while he was making new movie Paycheck - because she wanted to know all the gossip about co-star Ben Affleck. The Possession star's mum was fascinated by the speculation about Affleck's on-again-off-again marriage to Jennifer Lopez, and begged her son to give her the latest. He says, "I had my mom asking me, 'What's going on with Ben and Jen?' or, 'Where are they getting married. I wanna know what she's wearing.' It was all so that my mom can say to other people's moms before anybody knows. I'm like, 'Dude, what's going on?' and he would like tell me the whole scoop, but I wasn't telling." »

Morris picks up 'Paycheck' from Par/D'Works job

29 April 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Kathryn Morris has nabbed a role in Paramount Pictures/DreamWorks Pictures' Paycheck for helmer John Woo. Shooting is under way in Vancouver. Morris (Minority Report) joins Ben Affleck, Uma Thurman, Aaron Eckhart and Michael C. Hall in the Dean Georgaris-penned project. Based on a short story by Philip K. Dick, Paycheck is a futuristic tale centering on a man (Affleck) who has part of his memory erased by his employer and begins to find clues to his whereabouts for the past two years. Morris is set to play Rita Dunne, a co-worker of Affleck's character. John Davis, Michael Hackett and David Solomon are producing Paycheck. The project reteams Morris with Woo, who directed her in his BMW Films short Hostage. The actress, who next appears in the Dimension thriller Mindhunters opposite Val Kilmer, Christian Slater and LL Cool J, is repped by Endeavor, Mosaic Media Group's Dave Fleming and attorney Jason Sloan. She also recently filmed the lead role in Jerry Bruckheimer and Meredith Stiehm's drama pilot The Unsolved for CBS from Warner Bros. Television, Jerry Bruckheimer TV and CBS Prods. »

'State'-sponsored boxoffice win

31 March 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

DreamWorks' Head of State received the most votes from moviegoers at the weekend boxoffice as the comedy starring Chris Rock and Bernie Mac debuted in the top spot with an estimated $14 million. Buena Vista's Bringing Down the House was down a slim 23% in its fourth frame, grossing an estimated $12.5 million to place second. The Adam Shankman-helmed comedy rolled past the $100 million mark Sunday after 24 days. Paramount's The Core opened with a disappointing estimate of $12.4 million to take the third slot, but the gross was in line with the tracking on the film heading into the weekend. The sci-fi actioner, helmed by Jon Amiel and starring Aaron Eckhart and Hilary Swank, had the widest release of the weekend's new arrivals, debuting in 3,017 theaters. The weekend's only other new wide release was Sony's Basic, a military action-thriller starring John Travolta and Samuel L. Jackson, which opened in the fourth slot with an estimated $12.1 million. Miramax's award-winning Chicago moved up a notch into the fifth spot with an estimated $7.4 million -- up 20% from last weekend. Fresh off its Oscar win for best picture, the musical added 136 theaters, bringing the count to 2,701. The film's cume to date is about $144.9 million, which makes it the highest-grossing domestic release ever for Miramax, topping Good Will Hunting ($138.3 million). »

19 March 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Six Feet Under star Michael C. Hall will star opposite Ben Affleck in Paramount Pictures' Paycheck for director John Woo and producers John Davis and Michael Hackett. The project aims to go into production next month. Based on a short story by Philip K. Dick, Paycheck is a futuristic tale centering on Jennings (Affleck), a man who has part of his memory erased by his employer and begins to find clues to his whereabouts for the past two years. Hall will play the lead FBI agent who is spearheading the investigation on Jennings' memory. Aaron Eckhart also stars as Rethrick, the man who persuades Jennings to give up two years of his life, thus setting in motion a whirlwind of chaos. Dean Georgaris adapted the screenplay. Hall is repped by Innovative Artists, MJ Management and attorney Jodie Peikoff. Since landing the role of a gay funeral home director on HBO's Six Feet Under, Hall has garnered Emmy, Golden Globe and American Film Institute nominations for the role. The actor began his career on Broadway, having most recently performed in the musical Chicago. »
