Movie News 22/12

  • Lohan and Penn to Make a Movie Together?     “A source tells New York gossip column Page Six, “Lindsay and Sean were talking about possibly doing a film together. Lindsay seems like she was really into the idea.””     


  • Sequel to ‘The Phantom’ to be Filmed in Australia     “An Australian production company on Monday announced it had secured the rights to “The Phantom Legacy,” a follow-up to the 1996 film, “The Phantom,” which starred Billy Zane as the masked hero who fights evil from his jungle headquarters.  The latest adaptation, which is expected to cost $87 million, will focus on “the Father/Son relationship, and what it means to be The Phantom,” scriptwriter Tim Boyle said in a statement. “The film will be set in the present day and will deal with the concept of destiny.””




  • Oprah Winfrey makes TV movie deal with HBO      “The move to HBO ends a long relationship with ABC for Winfrey’s production company output of uplifting movies including Emmy-award winning “Tuesdays with Morrie” and “Their Eyes Were Watching God,” starring Halle Berry.”


  • Movie review: Just say no to Carrey’s ‘Yes Man’     “”Yes Man” is the kind of career move a performer makes in lieu of actually making a career move. It’s an attempt to hover in place. In “Liar, Liar,” he played a man who could not stop telling the truth. “Yes Man” stays close to formula: He’s a guy who goes to a life-improvement seminar and resolves to say yes to life – to say yes to any request that’s made of him.”



  • “Australia” director defends movie against critics    “”This is not (simply) a romantic comedy for 40-year-old women or action movies for 17-year-old boys, and that’s not OK with some people. It’s not OK for people to come eat at the same table of cinema. But you look at movies like ‘Gone With the Wind’ and Old Hollywood classics, and they don’t fit in any box.  Corny Hollywood movies from the ’40s freak out (the film scientists),” he added.”
