Reilly Begs for 'Guys and Dolls' Role

10 December 2004 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Hollywood star John C. Reilly has shamelessly urged Miramax movie-makers to recruit him for their big screen version of Guys and Dolls. The character actor, who starred in the studio's Chicago and Gangs of New York, spent his early career on the stage in musicals like Jesus Christ Superstar, Fiddler on the Roof and Brigadoon - and he's eager to show off the skills required for these shows once again. He says, "Guys and Dolls - that's my favorite. I know Miramax are supposed to be doing the movie of it and boy I want to be in on that, because I just love it." »

Scorsese's Feeble Budget Predictions

8 December 2004 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Director Martin Scorsese grossly misjudged the budget for his latest movie The Aviator when he predicted it would cost less than Gangs of New York and ended up being more expensive. The film-maker was confident he could keep expenditure down on his biopic of Howard Hughes but accepts now his skills don't lie in finances - because he always fails to stick to the budgets he sets. He tells British magazine Time Out, "I thought The Aviator would be smaller. And it turned out that it's maybe as big, maybe bigger than Gangs. But you think, 'Oh, I can do this.' You gloss over some of the more difficult aspects until you get on the set, you get into pre-production. Then you think, 'Oh my, this will take more planning than I thought." »

Scorsese Plans Smaller Films

7 October 2004 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Acclaimed movie director Martin Scorsese is ditching big-budget epic productions in favor of making cheaper, more personal films. The Gangs Of New York legend has just finished shooting Howard Hughes biopic The Aviator and he's starting to crave the freedom that a smaller budget allows. The 61-year-old says, "I'm looking forward to making pictures that have a little smaller budget and taking different stories and going that way. As Harvey Weinstein said to me this morning, 'If you want to do a film that is kind of dark or violent for $20 million or something, fine. Shoot it in 30 days.' But if you are going to do something for $100 million or $110 million, it alters your subject matter and how you present the subject matter. And you know, as I get older too, I don't know if there is any room for me, in a way, with what is happening." »

DiCaprio Case Thrown Out of Court

1 October 2004 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Leonardo DiCaprio has been cleared of long-running charges that he incited a group of friends to attack a love rival outside a Manhattan restaurant. Actor and screenwriter Roger Wilson filed a $45 million lawsuit against the Gangs Of New York star and two of his friends after the alleged incident in 1998. Wilson accused DiCaprio of telling his friend Todd Healy to beat him up after an argument over Wilson's then girlfriend, actress Elizabeth Berkley. Judge Paula Omansky ruled that Healy did not hear the 29-year-old actor's alleged remark, "Go out there and kick his a**!" The judge also ruled that only a restaurant security guard heard DiCaprio's say it, so the actor could not have aided and abetted Healy in his assault on Wilson. The case against Healy, who has admitted to punching Wilson in self-defense, continues. »

Big movies help Splendid to profit

1 June 2004 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

MUNICH -- Cologne-based license trader and post-production house Splendid Media said on Tuesday it had earned a profit during the first quarter of 2004 despite plunging revenues. License trading revenues sank from €9 million ($11 million) during the first three months of 2003 to €1.8 million ($2.2 million) for the same period this year. The reason for the drop, according to Splendid, was the hugely successful theatrical release of Gangs of New York and My Big Fat Greek Wedding which bolstered last year's figures. »

Splendid Medien sees red

4 May 2004 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

COLOGNE, Germany -- Write-downs connected to the company's spin-off of its L.A.-based production division Splendid Pictures pushed German production-distribution group Splendid Medien into the red in 2003, Splendid said late Friday.

Total sales were down slightly at €33.8 million ($40.5 million), compared with €34.5 million in 2002. »
