'Chrystal' clear: Thornton to star

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

Billy Bob Thornton will star in the indie feature Chrystal, which will mark the big-screen directorial debut of Oscar-winning short filmmaker Ray McKinnon. McKinnon's wife, Lisa Blount, who shared the Oscar with her husband, will star in the title role. McKinnon wrote, directed and starred in the short film The Accountant, with Blount co-starring and executive producing. Chrystal is the husband-and-wife team's follow-up project. Chrystal, produced by Bruce Heller, David Koplan and Blount, goes into production May 28 in Arkansas. The project, written by McKinnon, sees Blount star as the title character, a rural woman whose convict husband (Thornton) returns home from prison only to see that the vacancy in her life left by the death of her child years earlier becomes even more acute. Walton Goggins (The Shield) also stars. As an actor, McKinnon has appeared in such films as O Brother, Where Art Thou? and Apollo 13. Blount, repped by McCabe/Justice and manager Darris Hatch, most recently starred in the WB Network pilot Trash. She also starred in the Tom DiCillo feature Box of Moonlight. Thornton, repped by CAA, is shooting the Walt Disney Co.'s The Alamo. Upcoming projects include Intolerable Cruelty and Bad Santa. »

Clooney Rages Against Fox's "Bare Bottom" Campaign

24 February 2003 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Solaris star George Clooney is furious that distributors Fox used the fact his naked backside appears in the sci-fi film to stir interest in it. The hunky actor is fiercely proud of the Steven Soderbergh directed film and has slammed the studio for not giving the movie the encouragement he believes it deserves. And the Perfect Storm star is certain the studio bosses will live to regret their actions. He says, "It immediately trivializes what Steven did and even more so what I was doing. And it makes me mad because you don't get the credit for doing what you're doing: which is sticking your neck out. I've had funny experiences in my career - Out Of Sight comes out and it bombs, Three Kings comes out and it doesn't do what they thought, O Brother, Where Art Thou? comes out and doesn't do well. All those films that I really cared about under performed; but as time goes on, people still talk about those films. I said right at the beginning to the guys from Fox, 'Five years from now, you guys are all going to be sitting at a cocktail party, bragging about your involvement in this', because that's the way it was with Out Of Sight at Universal, that's the way it was at Disney with O Brother." »
