12 Things We Learned From Michael Ovitz’s New Book
Michael Ovitz still has nothing good to say about Michael Eisner. He and Ron Meyer started to patch things up over dinner a few years ago at Hamasaku, the sushi restaurant that Ovitz owns in West Los Angeles. And the famous threat Ovitz delivered to Joe Eszterhas about having “foot soldiers” marching up and down Wilshire Boulevard? Totally exaggerated in Eszterhas’ retelling via the press.

Those are among the anecdotes and tidbits shared by Ovitz in his new book “Who Is Michael Ovitz?,” due out Tuesday from Random House’s Portfolio imprint. The book isn’t so much a tell-all as it is a take-credit-for-(nearly)-all that went down during Ovitz’s 20-year run as the monarch of CAA.

The 384-page tome offers exhausting detail on how CAA reshaped the movie business in the 1980s and ’90s with its approach to packaging, and how Ovitz engineered the dealmaking behind

'I’m nothing but compost’: Bill Murray on good friends, bad bosses and Harvey Weinstein

The actor talks about loneliness, big families, his temperamental reputation – and why he loves to live in the moment

The last time I met Bill Murray things got rather physical rather quickly. It was the 2014 Vanity Fair Oscars party and I was about to leave, bloated with celebrity sightings and starting to suffer from indigestion. But as I walked out I saw a man arrive who made me turn around and go right back in.

By now, Bill Murray has long bypassed mere celebrity status to become something close to a spiritual symbol, a guru of zen, and his frequent appearances among the masses (in a karaoke bar! In a couple’s engagement photo!) are reported on the internet with the excitement of sightings of the messiah. Ever since his pitch perfect performances in 90s classics Groundhog Day and Rushmore, he has enjoyed a career renaissance, shucking off his well-hewn

‘The Front Runner’: Jason Reitman and Hugh Jackman’s Political Dark Comedy Lands at Sony

‘The Front Runner’: Jason Reitman and Hugh Jackman’s Political Dark Comedy Lands at Sony
Just days after Jason Reitman released “Tully” to disappointing box-office results, his eighth film has found a distributor. Sony Pictures will rollout his big-screen telling of former Colorado Senator Gary Hart’s doomed political career. Aussie Hugh Jackman is set to star in the namesake role, a candidate for the 1988 Democratic presidential nomination who was forced to suspend his campaign after his affair with campaign aide Donna Rice surfaced.

“Having grown up wandering around the Columbia lot as a kid, it is a particular thrill to bring ‘The Front Runner’ back home to the first studio I can remember,” said Reitman, whose father, Ivan Reitman, directed “Ghostbusters” and “Stripes” for Columbia before it was acquired by Sony in 1989. “I cannot wait for movie goers to see Hugh’s humanist transformation into one of the more complicated political figures of our time.”

Both of Jackman’s 2017 films yielded surprising, beyond-the-norm successes:

Stripes is becoming a TV show

David Crow Kirsten Howard Nov 17, 2017

Stripes, the Bill Murray comedy classic, is getting a single-camera sitcom on CBS...

In the race to create more content for television and film that echoes back to nostalgic properties, it was inevitable that one day it would be Stripes’ turn. CBS announced late Thursday that the comedy classic from Ivan Reitman, Harold Ramis, and the irreplaceable Bill Murray at the top of his lethargic disinterest is getting a television series.

Indeed, as revealed via Deadline, Stripes will be a single-camera comedy for CBS (so more Young Sheldon and less Big Bang) and will of course be a workplace comedy of sorts about the United States military. The project is being developed by the production company Whitest Kids U’Know, with Trevor Moore, Sam Brown, and Zach Creggar writing the script. Meanwhile Reitman, fresh off producing the Ghostbusters remake last year, will both be an
