Longtime Weinstein Collaborator Calls Out Hollywood: Everybody Knew
Scott Rosenberg, a Hollywood producer and screenwriter of movies such as Beautiful Girls, Gone in 60 Seconds, and High Fidelity, wrote a long piece about his old friend and collaborator, Harvey Weinstein. In the long scathing essay, Rosenberg called out everybody in the entertainment business for knowing about his sexual predatory behavior for years and never saying anything. The screenwriter/producer also took time out to apologize for being complicit during all of these years in what has become a major headline across the world over the last few weeks.

Scott Rosenberg took to Facebook earlier this week to not only condemn Harvey Weinstein's behavior, but also call out the entertainment industry for knowing about Weinstein's misconduct for decades, himself included. While Rosenberg claims that people didn't know about heavier accusations, he claims that everybody knew about Harvey Weinstein's aggressive behavior while stating he knew because everybody reportedly talked about it together.

  • The Playlist
One the questions surrounding the ongoing Harvey Weinstein scandal is how much those around him knew and were complicit in his behavior. There general reaction by those inside and outside his companies — Miramax and The Weinstein Company — has been that they didn’t know the extent of Weinstein’s abuses and assaults, but one screenwriter is suggesting that everyone knew what was going on.

Scott Rosenberg, who penned the Miramax pictures “Things To Do In Denver When You’re Dead” and “Beautiful Girls” wrote about his time with Weinstein during the producer and mogul’s ’90s heyday in a since removed (at least from public view) Facebook post.

‘Picture of Beauty’ Review

Stars: Taylor Sands, Danielle Rose, Pawel Hajnos, Magdalena Bochan-Jachimek, Joanna Mazewska, Joanna Sobocinska, Ernestyna Winnicka, Amer Riad El Muafy, Elen Moore, Frantisek Smejkal | Written by and Directed by Maxim Ford

A voyeuristic, yet sexually repressed painter commissioned by a Madam for her brothel. Two young friends exploring feelings for each other. Corrupt police officers and morally corrupt religious zealots. Arranged marriages. Appreciation for art. Beautiful girls in period dress… It’s almost like De Sade, Franco, Pasolini and Borowczyk are having a brain storm session wherever they ended up after death.

Ok. That’s taking it a bit too far, but I can safely say as a lover of erotic cinema of yesteryear – Maxim Ford’s Picture of Beauty touched me in all of the right places. I should also say that although an explicit film at times, this is not just a piece of exploitative and sordid ‘sinema’. This is an honest,

Edgar Wright Eyes ‘Grasshopper Jungle’ as Next Feature

With Baby Driver arriving this summer — which looks to be a propulsive and highly entertaining ride — writer-director Edgar Wright is already moving forward with this next project. His attachment was first announced years ago, but according to The Hollywood Reporter, Wright has re-secured the rights (see what I did there?) to an adaptation of Grasshopper Jungle, a young adult novel that charts the coming-of-age and youthful love narrative amidst an apocalypse of unstoppable 6-foot grasshoppers hellbent on destroying humanity.

Now set up at New Regency instead of Sony Pictures, Wright is no stranger to beloved adaptations (Scott Pilgrim vs. the world), nor riotous action with a beating heart (Three Colours Trilogy, the aforementioned comic book adaptation, and seemingly, Baby Driver). What remains to be seen is if the material can be elevated above its target audience to hit cinema-goers as a whole, but let’s be honest, it’s Edgar Wright.

Twenty years ago, 'Trainspotting' was a blast of pure punk energy
When I got out of bed today, I moved a soundtrack from my computer to my iPod, and when I got in the car to drive to work, I cranked up Iggy Pop's "Lust For Life" for the first time in a while. As soon as I did, I was hit with a flash of Ewan McGregor, tearing ass down the street, that smile on his face, and I got a full Proustian out-of-body flashback to being in the theater with my friends Pete and Scott and positively levitating out of my chair at the energy of the thing. We were all Danny Boyle fans already from Shallow Grave, but nothing prepared us for Trainspotting. It was one of those seismic movie moments, and it seems impossible to me that it's already been 20 years since it came out. There have been plenty of movies about addiction and drug abuse over the years,

'Jumanji' Remake on Target for Christmas 2016 Release
Back in August, Sony Pictures issued release dates for a number of high-profile projects, all set to hit theaters between 2016 and 2017. One of those movies is their Jumanji remake, which has been in development for several years, with Zach Helm coming aboard to write the script back in 2012. Today, Deadline reports that the studio has hired screenwriter Scott Rosenberg (Con Air) to rewrite the script in hopes that it makes its announced holiday release next year.

The remake is said to be a high priority for the studio, described as a "re-imagination" of the original 1995 blockbuster Jumanji, which starred Robin Williams, Kirsten Dunst, Bonnie Hunt and Bebe Neuwirth. The original movie was spawned from the board game and book by writer Chris Van Allsburg (The Polar Express, Zathura). The movie earned a whopping $262.7 million worldwide at the box office, from a $65 million production budget.

"Jumanji" Remake Scheduled For Xmas 2016

  • Dark Horizons
Scott Rosenberg ("Gone In Sixty Seconds," "Con Air," "Beautiful Girls") has just been brought onboard to pen a rewrite of the upcoming "Jumanji" reboot at Sony Pictures.

Said to be more a re-imagination of the original Chris Van Allsburg book than a remake of the classic 1995 family film starring Robin Williams, the story will still deal with the concept of a board game that comes to life.

Matt Tolmach and Bill Teitler are producing the project which is a priority for the studio who wants in cinemas by Christmas Day next year. Jeff Pinkner, who recently worked with Rosenberg on CBS' "Zoo" series," will consult on the script.

8 big movies whose scripts dramatically changed

  • Den of Geek
Con Air, Last Action Hero, Brainscan and Die Hard 4.0 could all have been very different films, going by the early drafts of their scripts.

The life of a Hollywood screenwriter might sound like a glamorous one, but it's not all premieres and champagne.

As one of the smaller cogs in an often complex machine, the writer can often find his or her work changed almost beyond recognition by other hands. Such is the case with the following movies, which were all changed quite drastically in one way or another between their original draft and their final cut.

Some scripts were pressed into service as sequels. Some began in one genre and wound up in another. Rather than put together an exhaustive list, we've chosen a few examples of the script changes that intrigued or bemused us most.
