As previously reported, the next instalment in the ongoing Paranoramal Activity series is this year conspicuous by its absence. Since 2009 we've checked in with Katie and Hunter every October, but post-part 4 there seemed to be an indefinite gap in that regular schedule, with only a spin-off - The Marked Ones, previously known as The Oxnard Tapes - acting as Paranormal methodone in January. Just announced, however, is the news that Paranormal Activity 5 is now underway.As widely predicted, the director will be Gregory Plotkin, editor of the previous three Paranormals, and also co-producer of the previous two (as well as The Marked Ones). His career as an editor is long established, with credits on dozens of films including The Break Up, The Recruit, Hart's War, Pleasantville and Michael Mann's The Insider. This is his first break calling the shots, and appears to be a gig he's had an eye on for some time. »
A few days before I meet Tobey Maguire, there is a minor flap in the pages of the New York Times about the movie he's about to appear in. Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby is designed to be "relevant for a new generation", say its producers, causing pain to a few in a previous one: an obliging bookseller avers that anyone caught reading the movie tie-in version of Gatsby (with Maguire, Carey Mulligan and Leonardo DiCaprio on the cover) should be thoroughly ashamed of themselves.
Maguire hadn't read the novel before Luhrmann approached him for the part of Nick Carraway, and takes the view that, "like with Shakespeare", everyone should relax and allow for multiple interpretations. »
