1 August 2000 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Mick Jagger insists working on a movie with Kate Winslet and Dougray Scott has had its tricky moments. The Rolling Stones frontman, who is now producing movies, has been working with the two actors for his forthcoming release Enigma (2001). But he admits, "You have to be patient with difficult people. The talent can be difficult and fly off the handle." And he says he is using the same skills for both his music and film career, "You need an eye for detail, you mustn't lose sight of the big picture, you had originally, you mustn't compromise too much for money." And Jagger says the film work doesn't mean the end for the Stones. He explains, "I think we'll be touring the Stones again quite soon. I'm sure it will happen." »

Jagger Wants To Be Played By Jude Law

20 July 2000 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Mick Jagger has pin-pointed British actor Jude Law as his choice to portray him in a movie based on the Rolling Stone's life. The 57-year-old ex-husband of Texan model Jerry Hall has told friends that the Talented Mr. Ripley, The (1999) Star Would be best suited for the film loosely based on the singer and the 1970s music scene. A friend of the singer said, "Jude has been pencilled in for the part - at least as far as Mick's concerned. Mick has already written the script and it's going to be filmed by Martin Scorsese. Someone suggested Jude to him, saying that the actor had the same kind of presence Mick had as a young man." Jagger says he has no plans to star in the movie himself - although he's acted with distinction in other films in the past. He says about the movie, "It's mainly about the Machiavellian deals and relationships in the record industry. " His company, Jagged Films, is currently working on its first project - a version of the Second World War thriller Enigma (2001), by ROBERT HARRIS, starring Titanic (1997) star Kate Winslet. »

Winslet Sent Death Threats By Female Internet Stalker

21 June 2000 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Kate Winslet has received a string of email death threats from a woman stalker. The sinister fan, who calls herself Dina, says she wants to "rape her, kill her and just hit her" and has pledged to visit London to track down the pregnant Titanic (1997) actress. The threats have been left on Kate's fanclub website, KWFC, and originated from the literature department at the Aristotle University of Thessalonica, in Greece. Tuesday night, no one at the university was available for comment. Warnings about the threats were made to Kate's agents more than a week ago in an email headed "Winslet stalker info - urgent!" The message warned Kate's representative, Adam Martin of the London-based agents Peters, Fraser and Dunlop, "There could be harm for Kate." One message from the obsessed stalker refers to the star's new home in Britain. It reads, "That flat sounds cool...I can get her addy (internet slang for address) then!! hahaaaaaa." Kate is currently at home with husband Jim Threapleton after finishing work on the movie Enigma (2000). Their first child is due in September. »

Mick Jagger's On Set Visits To Enigma

4 May 2000 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Rock star Mick Jagger and author ROBERT HARRIS are ditching their day jobs to lend a hand on the set of Kate Winslet's movie Enigma (2000). Jagger, whose company JAGGED FILMS is producing the movie about British World War II code-breaking, has paid regular visits to the set - and was joined this week by the author of the hit novel on which the movie is based. Spokesperson LINDA GABLE says, "Sadly you won't ever see Mick in the movie because that would be too distracting, but he does visit quite regularly, and you will see his own personal Enigma machine briefly in the film. It's one of the rare four rota machines." She continues, "The author Robert Harris has been along for a few days to see his characters in the flesh." Apart from the minor stir whenever Jagger turns up, the movie is well on schedule and unaffected by Winslet's pregnancy. Gable says, "We're on track to finish by the end of June. Everything's going smoothly. And Kate's pregnancy hasn't been a problem at all - I haven't seen any busloads of beetroot or marmite arriving to satisfy her cravings or anything!" »
