Indie producers skirt ban; SAG panel gets screeners

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

The MPAA's modified screener ban has been breached. Members of the SAG nominating committee have been sent video screeners of Monsier Ibrahim, which Sony Pictures Classics is releasing in the United States beginning Dec. 5. The move appears to be the first instance of a film distributed by an MPAA member company finding its way to a group other than the sanctioned Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Under the terms of the current screener ban, SPC, a unit of Sony Pictures Entertainment, may not send out screeners for its films to anyone but members of the Academy who have signed the screener agreement, but in this case, the screeners are being issued not by SPC but by the film's French producers, the husband and wife team of Laurent Petin and Michele Halberstadt Petin, who produced the $5 million-$6 million film through their ARP Prods. in association with France 3 Cinema and Canal+. SPC acquired domestic distribution rights to the film last May. »

Omar Quit After Embarrassing Banderas Flop

20 November 2003 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Movie veteran Omar Sharif was so embarrassed by his role in Antonio Banderas flop The 13th Warrior he quit acting. The Lawrence Of Arabia star was so disappointed with the 1999 movie he decided never to make another film. Sharif, who has only just come out of semi-retirement to film French movie Monsieur Ibrahim, says, "After my small role in The 13th Warrior, I said to myself, 'Let us stop this nonsense, these meal tickets that we do because it pays well.' I thought, 'Unless I find a stupendous film that I love and that makes me want to leave home to do, I will stop.' Bad pictures are very humiliating, I was really sick. It is terrifying to have to do the dialogue from bad scripts, to face a director who does not know what he is doing, in a film so bad that it is not even worth exploring." »
