Spielberg's Munich film opening at Christmas

16 February 2005 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Universal Pictures is planning a Dec. 23 launch for Steven Spielberg's film about the 1972 Munich Olympics. The untitled project, a co-production between Universal and DreamWorks with Universal handling domestic distribution, had been set to go before the cameras last year. Preproduction had begun in Europe and casting was under way when Spielberg decided to have Angels in America playwright Tony Kushner do a rewrite on the project, on which writers Eric Roth and Charles Randolph also had worked. With the project postponed, Spielberg moved quickly to begin filming his adaptation of H.G. Wells' War of the Worlds, a Paramount Pictures/DreamWorks co-production starring Tom Cruise, which Paramount will release June 29. Spielberg now plans to begin filming the Munich project in the summer. »

Producers Guild Nominations Announced

5 January 2005 | IMDb News

A period piece, an ensemble comedy, a boxing drama, a big-budget biopic, and an animated extravaganza were among the nominees for this year's Producers Guild of America awards. In a marked constrast to last year's epic-driven slate, lower-budget and more intimate movies dominated the guild's picks, with Finding Neverland, Million Dollar Baby, and awards fave Sideways going up against the large-scale The Aviator and, in a bit of a surprise, Pixar's latest animated hit, The Incredibles. All five movies are up for Golden Globes in their respective Best Picture categories, with Sideways dominating the critical awards season.

Though not as reliable a barometer as the Directors Guild Awards, the PGA nominees are a pretty good harbinger of things to come and in the past have helped prognosticators whittle down the competition for the Best Picture Oscar; four of last year's six nominees -- Master & Commander: The Far Side of the World, Seabiscuit, Mystic River, and winner The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King -- went on to snag Best Picture nominataions (the other PGA nominees, Cold Mountain and The Last Samurai, was passed over for Lost in Translation). In weeding out the favorites, the PGA relegated a number of movies to also-ran status, including Kinsey, Closer, Ray, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, and the year's two most polarizing films, Fahrenheit 9/11 and The Passion of the Christ.

The PGA also announced its nominees for long-form television: Angels in America, Horatio Hornblower: Loyalty, Ike: Countdown to D-Day, The Lion in Winter and Something the Lord Made.

Eleven of the PGA's past 15 feature film winners have gone on to win the Best Picture Oscar, and this year's winner will be announced January 22nd -- three days before the naming of this year's Academy Award nominees.
