    Still got the hot!

    The release date strategy, it seems it will be 20th Century Fox’s big player.I really hope this is James Gray’s Oscar ticket. He is one of my favourite american directors working now.

  • loff

    I can see this movie being an Oscar contender for Brad and all. When they moved the date that showed their is an Oscar winning movie, that is why the studio did it.

  • loff

    He never lost it.

  • Redy

    yep

    Thanks for the breadcrumb trail on the last thread. This answers the question as to whether the movie is still filming. Brad looks like he’s lost weight since the start of the movie – which may have something to do with the character being in space as opposed to on earth.

    On another note…this photo cracks me up -

    Don’t think I’ve seen Brad wearing something so workout casual since he dumped the dead end. And don’t anybody bring up that damned onesie…

  • Beedyq

    They are filming in Baker which has to be above 100 F since it is in the Mojave desert part of Death Valley, hot hot and dry. That area looks like it is being on an alien planet LOL.

    Gonna echo PT he looks thinner which makes sense for a space film with a long journey taken by an astronaut/crew featured in it.

  • Passing Through

    That sounds about right – they’ve used the desert landscape for Mars in the past, so maybe that’s what they’re for this movie as well. Not Mars necessarily but some fictional planet.

  • plez

    Seems like it. I read somewhere that The Revenant and Hidden Figures had a release date in January. Both got Oscar noms for best picture.

  • Beedyq

    Great news re Plan B and their new Starz series “Sweetbitter”.

  • Beedyq

    And Both of those films had qualifying limited releases in December. Fingers crossed,

  • Malf

    Looking good Mr P. Not sure about the shorts & long socks thingy though. Lol. 🤣😄

  • Beck

    Cool! Feels like its been forever since we saw Brad. This movie sounds good, I’m sure James and Brad are happy to finally do a movie together.

    OT: Weren’t there sexual harassment rumors floating around???????

    Harvey Weinstein Lawyers Battling N.Y. Times, New Yorker Over Potentially Explosive Stories (Exclusive)

    The Hollywood mogul has enlisted a team of attorneys to fight planned articles that are said to be about his personal behavior.

    The Weinstein Co. film and television mogul has enlisted an army of attorneys and crisis managers in recent weeks and has unleashed them on The Times over a planned story on his personal behavior, multiple sources familiar with the behind-the-scenes battle tell The Hollywood Reporter. 

    It’s unclear what the Times is planning to report, but sources say the newspaper has been calling dozens of current and former employees and associates of Weinstein, going back as far as the executive’s days running Miramax more than two decades ago. The reporting team is also said to have procured internal human resources documents during the investigation.

    And the Times isn’t the only media outlet aggressively pursuing a story on Weinstein. NBC News correspondent Ronan Farrow also has been digging into the mogul’s past for approximately a year, and Farrow is now said to be working with The New Yorker magazine on a “lengthy” piece. 

    Reps for Weinstein and the Times declined to comment. A spokesperson for The New Yorker told THR, “We don’t comment on pieces we haven’t published.”

    Weinstein, 65, is a polarizing figure in Hollywood. A master movie producer and marketer and a regular at the Oscars, he also is famously brash and controlling. Down and Dirty Pictures, a 2004 book on Weinstein by author Peter Biskind, described Weinstein’s behavior toward employees and others in his orbit as bullying and called him an artist of “anger.”

    Weinstein, who runs the New York-based Weinstein Co., is no stranger to litigation, but in this case he has lawyered up in an unusually significant way.

    In addition to his usual attorney David Boies, Weinstein also has engaged Lisa Bloom, a Woodland Hills, Calif.-based lawyer and television personality specializing in sexual harassment cases (and the daughter of Gloria Allred), as well as Charles Harder, the Beverly Hills-based litigator who represented Hulk Hogan in the invasion of privacy trial that brought down the Gawker website. Other lawyers also are said to be advising the mogul.
    Several crisis PR consultants also are involved, according to sources.

    The subject of the media outlets’ reporting is said to be Weinstein himself and not the business operation of the Weinstein Co. Whether either or both publications ultimately publish a story in the face of an onslaught of pushback from Weinstein’s lawyers remains to be seen.

  • Beedyq

    He has been undercover and stealth since the 2nd week of August I believe lol.

  • mkv

    Yep there were those rumors. Guess we’ll see what’s up, pretty big that two publications are working on stories about this

  • mkv

    Yeah that’s a good dates for awards you just have to get confirmation on the qualifying release dates in December and also if it does any festivals. Not sure how fast Gray works.

  • mkv

    Yeah that’s a good dates for awards you just have to get confirmation on the qualifying release dates in December and also if it does any festivals. Not sure how fast Gray works.

  • Beedyq

    And he hired Lisa Bloom whose clients are a who’s who of notorious behavior situations. An interesting choice.

  • mkv

    She was the most interesting choice to me. Right now she’s representing the woman who Kevin Hart is accusing of extortion because he cheated on his wife lol so guess Harvey wants someone who is at least used to press scandals

  • Beedyq

    Your guess sounds right on target to me re the Lisa Bloom hiring. Something must be pushing open and ready to burst out of Harvey’s Pandora’s box of his to date buried past.

  • Malf

    Doesn’t everyone already know he’s azzhole?! Not sure what the deal is with all the high priced lawyers. Agree with you…hiring Lisa Bloom gives the idea that any revelations will be extremely messy & nasty & not just embarassing.

  • Passing Through

    Harvey’s casting couch and sexual harrassment rumors been around for decades. It tells you exactly how much his power and influence has declined the last 7-10 years that the media outlets are now willing to write about when people have whispered about for decades. Just ask everyone from Gwynnie to Charlize to Kate Winslet to Gossip Girl Chick how legit the rumors are…

  • ali7

    Media are wasting their time, Hollywood know his reputation, he continues to be a power producer and after the story break he will still be a power producer and the Gwy, the Charlize and the Kate W will line up to be in his movie. Lol this is Hollywood where W Allen and Polanski still have job and get nominated for awards.

    Did you guys see the statement from the LV shooter’s girlfriend? He had wired $100,000 to the Philippines before the shootings and the authorities had wondered why. The girlfriend said in her statement that he had bought her a ticket to the Philippines so that she could go back to visit her family and friends. She said she had no idea he was planning the shooting when she left the country. While she was there he sent her $100K and told her to buy a house for herself and her family. She thought that was his way of breaking up with her. And then she heard about the shootings and that he was responsible. She said she’d voluntarily returned to the US because she knew the LV police and FBI wanted to talk to her. She had her attorney read the statement and expressed condolences and sorrow for the victim and then asked for people to respect her privacy and said she was cooperating fully with law enforcement. Makes me wonder how many nutters are going to stalk this woman trying to get photos or harass her.

    Daily Fail slumming…did SJP finally kick her alleged coke habit? Cuz she’s gained about 15 pounds. Her face is a lot fuller and she looks like she might be all the way up to a whole size 4 from a size 0…

    ROTFLMAO…Josh Brolin was cast as Cable in Deadpool 2 after Brad passed on it and the photos have me LMAO. He looks ridic. First off – he’s got Brad’s Fury haircut. Secondly…he’s about 6″ too shoot or me to take him seriously in his “evil super villain” getup…

    Yeah I think she should not have been named until it was clear that she was involved.

  • Beedyq

    Looks like they are filming in what could be like an old military type ammo bunker.

    That is what I see based on my military brat upbringing LOL.

    OT: Variety doesn’t seem to have any qualms in saying that the NYT and New Yorker stories on Harvey W detail sexual allegations and improper workplace behaviour. Haha..THR was more careful in their report. Guess, Variety isn’t as scared of HW.

    Maybe Variety has better lawyers on its payroll.

  • cheralp07

    “Character is Destiny..” The past 20 years have caught up. He had a good run though. Will be interesting to see who in Hollywood put themselves on the line for him. He built many careers. Will resident good guy Matt Damon do it? Will all the others stand by him? We shall see.

    Not to mention his wife and the impact to her fashion company Marchesa.

  • toastie postie

    He has also sabotage a lot of movies if it didn’t go his way. Like Snowpiercer – Bong Joon-ho does not have good memories of Harvey – spiteful person.

  • cheralp07

    Oh, without a doubt he has made enemies. Who would be very cooperative with the NYT &NYM. But his allies, are numerous.

  • Malf

    Doubt HW gives a shite. As Ali sd below, actors & actresses are still lining up to work with Roman Polanski & Woody Allen.

  • cheralp07

    Right, but as award season picks up, questions will be asked of those who know, or have long worked with Harvey. And either they’ll answer or dodge questions, but it will be unavoidable.

  • Malf

    They’ll dodge and weave just like Cate B did when she won her Oscar in that Woody Allen movie.

  • Malf

    More like THR was paid off by Harvey at a cheaper rate. Next up THR will be having an “Exclusive” interview with Harvey W.
