Ever since his arrest last month, Roman Polanski has been locked away in a Swiss jail awaiting his fate. But that hasn't stopped him from working. Aceshowbiz reports that he is continuing work on his latest movie, an adaptation of the Robert Harris novel The Ghost, while incarcerated.
Harris spoke with the press and said that Polanski was supplying instructions to composer Alexandre Desplat regarding the score. He also said Polanski is trying to have the movie completed in time for the Berlin Film Festival in February.
He can make his wishes known from his cell. I don't think he can make phone calls, but he can communicate ... It is a nightmare looming that the director might be in jail at the time [of the film's release] but we will just have to cope with this as the situation develops ... I'm sure he would want the film to go ahead, having worked on it for two years.
The Ghost tells the story of a ghostwriter who is hired to complete the memoirs of a former British prime minister and eventually uncovers secrets that put his life at risk. Polanski has a writing credit alongside Harris'. No date has been specified for a US release.
The cast includes Pierce Brosnan, Ewan McGregor, Olivia Williams, Kim Cattrall, Tom Wilkinson, Jim Belushi, and Timothy Hutton. Posted 10.15.09 by reelz
Think you have the handsomest, most special dog in the world? Well, you're wrong, I do.
But nonetheless, Disney is giving you the chance to prove me wrong. As a promotional tie-in for its upcoming release, Underdog, Disney is sponsoring the UNDERDOG Super Pet Contest. The winner will get a trip (for him/herself and the special canine in question) to the world premiere of Underdog. AND your dog gets to appear in a scene in the movie. An unlimited number of entrants will appear in Underdog's closing credits.
Entries will be accepted through June 1. Movie fans will then be able to vote on the finalists between June 8 and 14.
Underdog is a live-action, re-imagination of the classic cartoon of the same name. It stars Jim Belushi, Amy Adams, and My Name is Earl's Jason Lee as the voice of Underdog.
To enter, just go to the contest website and upload a video or photo of your dog doing whatever "super" thing or trick he or she does - from just looking particularly dapper to, oh, I don't know, balancing a squirrel on his head.
But, whatever it is that your dog does, I bet it isn't as super as this. Posted 05.14.07 by reelz
