Mandel, Ganz embrace 'Kiss'

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

Columbia Pictures has brought in the accomplished writing team of Babaloo Mandel and Lowell Ganz to rewrite its comedy Last First Kiss, which is set to star Will Smith. The involvement of Mandel and Ganz comes just weeks after Sweet Home Alabama helmer Andy Tennant signed on to direct the project, which is scheduled for a March production start. Kiss will star Smith as a date doctor who claims that he can match life mates in just three dates. When a beautiful female journalist enlists in the program, she attempts to expose the doctor as a scam artist. The project is being produced by Overbrook Entertainment's James Lassiter and Teddy Zee, while the script was originally penned by Kevin Bisch and previously rewritten by Jessica Bendinger. Mandel and Ganz, who have worked on such hit comedies as City Slickers and A League of Their Own, have worked on a trio of upcoming projects, including the Walt Disney Co. adventure National Treasure, the animated 20th Century Fox feature Robots and the Fox comedy Fever Pitch. The writers are repped by CAA. »

Salma the Farmer?

12 September 2003 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Mexican beauty Salma Hayek has set her heart on a change of career - she wants to own a chicken farm. The Oscar-nominated Frida actress yearns for a simple country life, and insists the bright lights of Hollywood have failed to dim her agricultural ambition. She says, "I dream of having a farm with chickens where I collect the eggs myself and grow vegetables." And the Dogma stunner - currently dating Sweet Home Alabama hunk Josh Lucas - has a specific type of person in mind to settle down with in her rural utopia. She adds, "I don't like vain men who try to impress me with their affected behavior. My partner has to be prepared to support me in my personal development and to grow with me." »

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

The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers and Spider-Man lead all nominees for the 2003 MTV Movie Awards with five apiece, the cabler announced Monday. Both films will compete in the best movie category -- along with 8 Mile, Barbershop and The Ring -- as well as in the best male performance category, where Two Towers star Viggo Mortensen will go up against Spider-Man lead Tobey Maguire. Rounding out the category is Eminem (8 Mile), Vin Diesel (XXX) and Leonardo DiCaprio (Catch Me If You Can). In the best female performance category, Spider-Man has another entry with Kirsten Dunst, who will compete with Reese Witherspoon (Sweet Home Alabama), Halle Berry (Die Another Day), Kate Hudson (How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days) and Queen Latifah (Chicago). Always in an irreverent mode, the 2003 edition of MTV's awards program will be no exception. A new category will reward the best virtual performance to a computer-generated character. The inanimate nominees include Yoda (Star Wars: Episode II -- Attack of the Clones), Kangaroo Jack (Kangaroo Jack), Gollum (The Two Towers), Dobby (Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets) and Scooby-Doo (Scooby-Doo). Other off-kilter categories include best action sequence, best fight, best kiss and best on-screen team. The 2003 MTV Movie Awards will be taped on May 31st at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles and air June 5th at 9 p.m. Last year's installment was the highest-rated in the franchise's 11-year history, drawing more than 7 million viewers. »

Moritz men have movies in genes

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

LAS VEGAS -- It's not often that a speaker at ShoWest or any other convention gets to introduce a top movie producer as someone he's known "literally since he was in diapers." But Milt Moritz, president of the National Association of Theatre Owners of California/Nevada, was able to introduce producer Neal H. Moritz that way at ShoWest's opening ceremony Tuesday morning at the Paris hotel here. The elder Moritz perhaps engaged in a bit of parental bragging when he said that even when his son was an infant, he could see in the boy's face a "keen understanding" that would later allow him to hone in on the tastes and wants of moviegoers everywhere. But Milt Moritz was well-justified in bragging a little when he said that his son had back-to-back, $126 million-plus releases last year -- XXX and Sweet Home Alabama -- and four films scheduled for release this year: 2 Fast 2 Furious, S.W.A.T., Out of Time and Torque. »

Legal Blonde Tops Poll

17 January 2003 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Sweet Home Alabama star Reese Witherspoon is the most popular actress in Hollywood. The 26-year-old actress topped American magazine Entertainment Weekly's top ten list as voted for by the readers. As well as enjoying success in romantic comedy Sweet Home Alabama, the entertainer has also signed a $22 million deal to star in Red, White And Blonde - the sequel to the box office smash Legally Blonde. A Hollywood insider says, "It's not surprising Reese has topped the list. When she returns as Elle Woods in Legally Blonde 2, her popularity will go through the roof. It wouldn't surprise me if she was in the same position this time next year." Renee Zellweger came second in the poll, followed by Nicole Kidman in third, Julia Roberts in fourth, Julianne Moore in fifth, Halle Berry in sixth, Kirsten Dunst in seventh, Jennifer Lopez in eighth, Cameron Diaz in ninth and Drew Barrymore in tenth. »
