When Brit director Julian Farino landed a script on Hollywood's "black list", his life took a strange turn
I was leaving the schoolyard, having dropped off my boys, when my mobile, or should I say cellphone, rang. "Hey Julian, it's Ed. Ed Limato. My client loves your movie. My client wants to be in your movie. My client is Richard Gere. We should talk, no?"
I had never spoken to Ed Limato before, but I knew of him as a legendary Hollywood agent. Mel Gibson, Michelle Pfeiffer, Denzel Washington, Steve Martin… he was an old-school giant. One of the biggest players in town. The fact that he should be ringing me (how did he get my number?), an outsider from London who started on Coronation Street, struck me in that 'how did I get here?' way. Am I really doing this whole thing in Hollywood?
The movie was The Oranges, »
