Thornton to get name in Uni's 'Lights'

5 December 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Billy Bob Thornton is in negotiations to head the cast of Universal Pictures' Friday Night Lights, which is being directed by Peter Berg. Brian Grazer is producing through Imagine Entertainment. Lights, based on the book by H.G. Bissinger, chronicles the 1988 football season of the Odessa (Texas) Permian High Panthers, capturing the struggles and hopes of a financially troubled town that pins its dreams on the team's Friday night games. Thornton will play the team's coach. The movie will be shot in and around Odessa. Thornton is currently starring in Dimension Films' black comedy Bad Santa, which has proven an unexpected hit, grossing nearly $20 million during its first eight days, and becoming the top film in the market during the past few weekdays. Thornton was nominated for a best actor Oscar for 1996's Sling Blade and for best supporting actor for 1998's A Simple Plan. (He won an Oscar for adapting Sling Blade.) His numerous credits include Monster's Ball, The Man Who Wasn't There and Bandits. Thornton next appears in the Walt Disney Co.'s The Alamo. He is repped by CAA, Industry Entertainment and attorney Bob Myman. »

Willis, Rifkin, prod'n outfit ink with CAA

19 November 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

CAA has signed Bruce Willis, his producing partner Arnold Rifkin and the duo's production outfit Cheyenne Enterprises for representation. Willis, Rifkin and Cheyenne will continue to be repped by attorney Skip Brittenham at Ziffren, Brittenham, Branca, Fischer, Gilbert-Lurie & Stiffelman. Willis had been agentless since May 2000, when he and his longtime agent Rikin exited WMA to launch Cheyenne. Since then, however, Willis and Cheyenne have suffered a string of disappointing returns on such projects as Tears of the Sun, Hart's War and Bandits. »
