McDormand on 'Class' docket

14 July 2004 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Frances McDormand and Charlize Theron can't get enough of each other. McDormand is in negotiations to join Theron in the Warner Bros. Pictures drama Class Action. The Oscar winners are currently teamed up on Aeon Flux for MTV/Paramount Pictures. Written by Michael Seitzman, Class Action is a fictionalized account of the first successful sexual harassment prosecution in the United States, Jensen v. Eveleth Mines. Whale Rider helmer Niki Caro is on board to direct. Pending a deal, McDormand would play the role of Glory, a tough but tender iron miner who befriends and mentors Theron's character, Josie, a harassed mine worker who becomes the key plaintiff in the case. Industry Entertainment's Nick Wechsler is producing, with Nana Greenwald, Helen Bartlett and Doug Claybourne serving as executive producers. Courtenay Valenti is overseeing for the studio. McDormand's recent credits include Catwoman, City by the Sea and Something's Gotta Give. She is repped by Endeavor and Frank Frattaroli at Artists Independent Network. »

February film admissions fall in the U.K.<BR clear="none"/><BR clear="none"/>

25 March 2004 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

LONDON -- United Kingdom boxoffice admissions for February fell 11% from the same period last year, according to figures released Wednesday by the Cinema Advertising Assn. Admissions in February hit 13.3 million, a fall from the year-earlier monthly total of 15 million. The totals for February this year also showed a slight month-on-month decline from January's tally of 15.3 million. According to the CAA, the top draw in February was School of Rock, which riffed out £8.7 million ($15.9 million) from the boxoffice during the month. February also saw the release of two other family-orientated films in the month of British school half-term holidays. Behind School of Rock in the popularity stakes was The Haunted Mansion, which earned £6.5 million ($11.9 million), while Cheaper by the Dozen notched £5.8 million ($10.6 million) and the No. 3 spot for the month. Other top February performers include Something's Gotta Give, with £5.7 million ($10.4 million), and Big Fish, which pulled in £4.3 million ($7.9 million). »

Sony, Universal see Gold at movie distrib'n honors

19 March 2004 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Boxoffice research company Nielsen EDI celebrated movie distribution at the 15th annual Gold Reel Awards by handing out a record 29 awards to films that grossed more than $100 million at the domestic boxoffice at a luncheon held Thursday at the Beverly Hills Hotel. The Hollywood Reporter co-sponsored the event. Sony Pictures and Universal Pictures tied for most awards received with six apiece. Sony picked up awards for Bad Boys II, Anger Management, Something's Gotta Give, S.W.A.T., Daddy Day Care and Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle. "It doesn't seem that long ago that having one film make $100 million would have been great, but to have six is amazing," said Rory Bruer, Sony president of domestic distribution. »

Keaton Still So Fond of Jack

2 March 2004 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Movie star Diane Keaton hasn't given up on love with Something's Gotta Give co-star Jack Nicholson - but she fears she's too old. The actress still has a soft spot for the movie legend even though she insists rumors of a romance between them were untrue. She says, "I love those Irish men. He's a once in a lifetime guy. I'm up for it but I don't think Jack's ready for me. But Jack... anytime." Keaton admits no one has ever proposed to her, but she isn't complaining - she has dated a string of Hollywood stars, including Warren Beatty, Woody Allen and Al Pacino. She recalls, "Warren's the most beautiful man I've ever seen. He was pretty. He was beautiful and that's a very appealing element in a human being. He (Woody) was adorable and Al was simply the most entertaining man. To me, that is the most beautiful face, a killer face." »

Keaton's Berlin Breakdown

11 February 2004 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Diane Keaton left German journalists baffled at the weekend when she broke down in the middle of a press conference. The exhausted actress was at the Berlin Film Festival with Jack Nicholson and Amanda Peet to promote their new movie Something's Gotta Give when she cracked under pressure and started weeping. A stunned Nicholson looked on sympathetically as Keaton babbled, "I'm so tired that I think I'm going to go insane. This is hard. I've not ever been with a bunch of people like this. It's weird. You ask weird questions and I don't know how to answer them. It's just f***ing weird. It's just so odd and the thing is there's so many of you and there's so few of us. We're not represented by the crew and all the other people who worked on the movie. I'm going nuts." Nicholson then took her hand and said gently, "You wanna go home now, honey? You wanna go home now, sweetie?" Keaton was all smiles again, however, yesterday when she attended the Oscar nominees breakfast in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles. »

In'tl boxoffice: 'School' rocks to U.K. top

10 February 2004 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Thanks to solid-but-fading holdover business, The Last Samurai and The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King again held fast as the No. 1 and No. 2 overseas boxoffice leaders, respectively, but left the door open for a batch of new titles to surface in individual markets. In the United Kingdom, for example, the top three entries over the weekend were, in order, School of Rock, Something's Gotta Give and Big Fish. In Germany, Mona Lisa Smile held first place for a third week in a row. The Haunted Mansion headed the chart in Spain for a second week; the three leaders in Australia were Big Fish, Along Came Polly and Something's Gotta Give, respectively; and Japan embraced Return in previews, welcomed Love Actually heartily and clung happily to Samurai for a 10th weekend. In France, Italy, Korea and Hong Kong, local films were the big scorers. »

Keaton: Nicholson Made Up Romance To Sell Our Film

10 February 2004 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Movie legend Jack Nicholson invented a real-life romance with co-star Diane Keaton to sell their latest film Something's Gotta Give, according to Keaton herself. The veteran actors - who first worked together on Warren Beatty's 1981 film Reds - reportedly fell in love while filming the romantic comedy. But the Annie Hall star, 58, insists the rumor was just another of the Batman star's mischievous stunts. She says, "You know Jack! He wants to sell the movie. He's the great entertainer. He'll say anything." But the Oscar-winning actress admits she felt a huge attraction for the 66-year- old screen legend. She adds, "I've had the biggest crush on him for 20 years. How can you not, even now? He's irresistible. Did I tell him that? Sure, he knows. I told him all the time." »

Nicholson: New Film Is Autobiographical

9 February 2004 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Hollywood legend Jack Nicholson has conceded the plot in new film Something's Gotta Give is autobiographical - because it involves a mature man chasing young girls. The notorious 66-year-old lothario, whose last girlfriend was 33-year-old actress Lara Flynn Boyle, admits he spoke to director Nancy Meyers as she wrote the movie's script, and she began to blur fact and fiction. He says, "I talked to her about it in advance while she was working on it. I guess it's got some good pieces of what my life has been like." Although he did add, "It's never been a matter of years for me. I don't really go by age that much." »

Nicholson Quits Fawning Over "Little Girls"

5 February 2004 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Actor Jack Nicholson is coming to terms with his increasing age - he now deems it "unattractive" to be seen dating young women. The Something's Gotta Give star's finding it harder to live up to his womanizing reputation now he's 66 and shuns the appeal of lusting after "little girls" - even though he admits it took him a long time to realize it's wrong. He says, "I think it is very unattractive for me to be seen fawning over little, tiny girls. I didn't feel that for a long time but now I do." However, the Oscar winner jokes he would happily whisk young women away for a night of passion if the prying paparazzi couldn't identify him. He adds, "If I could slip them out the back entrance wrapped in a blanket, that's a different story." »

The Vine: AMPAS eyes Caridi's role

3 February 2004 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

After the board of governors of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences meets tonight, Carmine Caridi probably won't have to worry about returning his Oscar ballot on time. A 22-year member of the Academy, Caridi figures in the ongoing FBI investigation into pirated Academy screeners, and he's also been sued by both Warner Bros. Pictures and Columbia Pictures for copyright infringement. According to an FBI affidavit, the actor has admitted to sending his screeners for such films as Mystic River and Something's Gotta Give to Russell Sprague of Chicago, though he claimed to be unaware that Sprague, whom he thought was a "film buff," was duplicating the tapes. Sprague, in a separate FBI interview, said he had sent copies of the tapes back to Caridi. In order to receive screeners this year, Caridi signed the Academy agreement in which he promised "not to allow the screeners to circulate outside my residence or office" and that "violation of this agreement will be considered grounds for expulsion." Caridi's violation of that agreement and his consequent expulsion is expected to be on the agenda tonight when the Academy's board of governors holds a regularly scheduled meeting. The board also may take up the case of a second member, Ivan Kruglak. Copies of a screener intended for Kruglak surfaced on eBay, though Kruglak has said he has no idea how that happened, and a resolution to his case may take longer for the Academy to decide. In past years, the Academy has expelled members for violations like selling tickets to the Oscars, but if he is expelled, Caridi would become the first Academy member booted for violating the screener agreement meant to prevent unauthorized use of awards-season screeners. »

Studios sue pair in screener case

29 January 2004 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Two of the movie studios whose screener tapes were found in the home of Russell Sprague, the Chicago-area man arrested last week by the FBI, have filed suit against Sprague and Carmine Caridi, the member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to whom the tapes were issued. Warner Bros. Pictures and Columbia Pictures filed separate complaints Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles, claiming that Sprague and Caridi have infringed on the studios' copyrights by duplicating and distributing copies of the films on both VHS and DVD. Both suits ask the court to enjoin the two defendants from continuing to duplicate and distribute the films and seek unspecified damages. The Warners suit involves its films Mystic River and The Last Samurai. The Columbia complaint revolves around Big Fish, on which Columbia holds the copyright, and Something's Gotta Give, whose copyright is held jointly by Columbia, which is distributing it through Sony domestically, and Warners, which is handling its international distribution. »

Oscar reactions: Jackson, Keaton, Watts, Kingsley, more

28 January 2004 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

"I feel great!" Peter Jackson said of the fact that The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King leads the pack with 11 nominations. But the director also was tired, having barely slept since Sunday's Golden Globe Awards. He finds the whole awards experience to be weirdly disconcerting, he admitted. ... The 2004 Oscar nominations gave Diane Keaton her fourth best actress Oscar nom. But her part in Something's Gotta Give, Nancy Meyers' romantic comedy for Columbia Pictures, has given her hope that there can be more movies like it. "There is an audience out there of females, a demographic that has been completely overlooked because they don't go to a movie the first weekend, so the marketing people don't have confidence that they even exist," Keaton said. ... Best actress nominee Naomi Watts recruited a couple of friends to watch Tuesday morning's nominations, which delivered good news for the 21 Grams star. "I was at home, watching it on the end of my bed, and I had my two girlfriends watch it with me," she said. "We were screaming like banshees." ... Dealing with "phone calls that are just pouring in," best actor nominee Ben Kingsley was pinching himself over his fourth Oscar nom. "For somebody who started their career with tiny parts in the Royal Shakespeare Company," he said, "this is pretty overwhelming." ... Alec Baldwin didn't have much time to let his nomination for best supporting actor sink in before he had to head into rehearsals for Twentieth Century on Broadway. "I'm very grateful and very, very shocked, actually," Baldwin said by phone. »

'King' lords over Globes

26 January 2004 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings: The Return of King seized "the precious" -- a win for best dramatic motion picture -- Sunday at the 61st annual Golden Globe Awards. And this time, it wasn't necessary to toss the talisman back into the fiery pit of Mount Doom. Among the year's leading actors, Mystic River's Sean Penn and Monster's Charlize Theron took home top drama honors, while the comedy kudos went to Bill Murray for Lost in Translation and Diane Keaton for Something's Gotta Give. In television, HBO's epic miniseries Angels in America led the field with five wins, including best miniseries/telefilm and lead actor and actress trophies for Al Pacino and Meryl Streep. Although King dominated the evening on the film side by commanding four Globes, a much smaller movie -- the modest Translation, from writer-director Sofia Coppola -- clearly spoke to the 90 members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. They rewarded the movie about Americans experiencing cultural disorientation in Tokyo with three statuettes, including best comedy/musical motion picture. Miramax's Civil War epic Cold Mountain, which entered the fray with a leading eight nominations, had to settle for one trophy: a supporting actress award for Renee Zellweger. »
