Hot off the press releases!
This one is a bit odd, because I’ve read spec screenplays about the payola scandal Joe Isgro was involved in and how the government kind of screwed itself. The script I read back in the day was more about a Forrest Gump romp through different eras, but it sounds like this new film is going to be either a memoir pic or a straight biopic.
Anywho, Isgro, if you haven’t heard of him was a producer/promoter that had some organized crime connections. It sounds like he’s pairing with a writer to do this biopic, but it’s unclear if any indie production house or major studio is circling or attached.
Here’s what we know:
Isgro, whose powerful independent promotion team controlled the radio airwaves for much of the 1970’s, 80’s and 90’s, is integrally responsible for launching and promoting the »
Tagline: "Friends Don't Let Friends Turn into Zombies!" David McElroy's After Effect bills itself as "28 Days Later Meets The Walking Dead." Those are some big shoes to fill.

Holy moly, it's Danny DeVito! One of the most ubiquitous actors of the 1980s and 90s, and certainly the most physically distinctive, is standing in a blandly corporate hotel room in Whitehall, of all random places a stone's throw away from No 10 Downing Street.
"Hey, I'm Danny, nice to meetcha, thanks for coming," he says in a New Jersey accent that makes him sound a little like a comedy sidekick from The Sopranos.
Few actors have ever looked like they're having as much fun as DeVito. From playing Michael Douglas and Kathleen Turner's whirling dervish of an evil nemesis in Romancing the Stone, to sniping at Arnold Schwarzenegger in Twins, to waddling through his lair as the demonic Penguin in Batman Returns, DeVito has been »

'What's the closest I've come to death? I was once in the same airport as Dick Cheney'
Danny DeVito, 68, was born in New Jersey. He trained as a hairdresser before studying at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts. In 1975, he appeared in the movie One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest and, in 1978, starred in the hit TV series Taxi. As well as acting, he directs – Hoffa, The War Of The Roses – and his company, Jersey Films, produced Pulp Fiction, Matilda and Get Shorty. Last year he made his West End debut in The Sunshine Boys, and next month he will receive a special tribute at the Dublin International Film Festival. He has three children by his wife, the actor Rhea Perlman, from whom he recently separated.
