Hey guys, Jana here,

Bohemian Rhapsody may be something that we connect with ‘Wayne’s Wold‘, and for good reason, but Mike Myers is not content to leave it at that. The jokester is courting director Bryan Singer and negotiating for a role in a film about the greatest of the great, Queen.

If David E. Kelley (‘Ally McBeal‘, ‘LA Law‘, ‘The Practice‘) is bringing a series about it’s a pretty much guarantee that it’s going to be a high-powered, legal drama and in this case, you’d be right. Amazon has picked up the series ‘Trial‘ from the writer and has cast some pretty big super-stars to anchor the drama, Billy Bob Thornton and William Hurt.

As original documentaries go, there are thousands of them covering any and all topics you could imagine and probably a lot that you wouldn’t want to imagine. If you’re in love with inanimate objects, partial to animals as bed-mates or you just want to check in with the oldest set of twins working as prostitutes. I know these things so you don’t have to. You’re welcome

‘Friends’ Star All Grown Up And Directing Now!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Sep 6th, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

Looks like everyone’s favorite, uptight, clean-freak, cooking ‘Friend(s)‘ is not going to be in front of the camera in her next venture, but Courteney Cox will be making her directorial debut. Starz jumped to the front of the line after seeing ‘Just Before I Go‘ at the Tribeca Film Festival. It’s a dark comedy to be sure, but who wants ‘The Brady Bunch‘ kind of nonsense anymore? Everything needs an edge. Some of my favorite shows are heavy with edge, like eyeliner on a goth chick. ‘Weeds‘, that’s not any type of a normal setup and it’s not all rainbows and unicorn farts. ‘Nurse Jackie‘, who doesn’t love a drug-addicted nurse?

Hello, Jana here,

In_Your_Eyes_Tribeca_poster

Movies have been moving to digital platforms for a long time. I still think back to the original movie collection I had when I became a total movie buff. I actually worked at a video rental store in high school called ‘The Movie Buff’. It was the greatest job in the world and set me up for a life-long fascination with film. Thinking back to that movie collection, I had over 450 VHS tapes. Over the years, I’ve had to get rid of them to make room for the newest platform of DVD’s. Way too many years later, I have no VHS tapes, but have tons of DVD’s and am now copying my collection over to a digital format.

James Gandolfini left an emptiness in his wake, especially for those of us that loved him on HBO. His legacy lives on with HBO, as befits Gandolfini’s biggest and arguably best starring role in, the numerous award winning, ‘The Sopranos‘.  Gandolfini played a role in the ‘Criminal Justice‘ pilot, that will be filled by none other than, Oscar winner, Robert De Niro. The actor who is no stranger to playing mafia characters has stepped into the vacated too soon size 12’s James Gandolfini left behind after his untimely death in June of this year. Robert DeNiro is a legend in his own right playing such famous parts in ‘Taxi Driver‘, ‘Godfather II‘, ‘Raging Bull‘, and ‘The Untouchables‘ to just name a few.

Hi Bryan Here….

A self-made millionaire living on New York City’s Upper East Side, 39-year-old Dee Dee Ricks seemed to have it all – until she was diagnosed with aggressive stage II breast cancer.  Insured and affluent, she could afford the best treatment money could buy, but was shocked to realize how difficult it is for uninsured women in the same situation, and determined to do something about it.

Hi Bryan Here….

I am just loving these musician documentaries.  The first half of the George Harrison doc has been amazing.  Looking forward to the second part tonight.  And now  Harry Belafonte is getting a documentary on his life and career.  Most of you might know Belafonte as the guy who sang ‘The Banana Boat Song’ which features the lyric “DAY-O”.  It was featured in the film ‘Beetle juice’.  I’m very excited for this doc as I am a huge fan of Belafonte.  I remember watching the making of Michael Jackson’s ‘We are the World’ music video and during the rehearsal, all of the singers and musicians just randomly started singing ‘The Banana Boat Song’ along with Harry Belafonte himself.  It was magical.

Michael Fleming over at Deadline is reporting that Pesci and Pacino are in talks to be a part of Scorsese’s next film which will be entitled “The Irishman”. It is based on the book “I Heard You Paint Houses” by Charles Brandt. The movie would follow the life and times of the mob hit man Frank “The Irishman” Sheeran. Amongst all of his mob related crimes he might have had a hand in the killing of Jimmy Hoffa. It also looks like Robert De Niro will be starring in the picture as well. He and his film company, Tribeca Productions are developing the film.

De Niro said this about the movie: “We have a more ambitious idea, hopefully, to make it a two-part type of film or two films…It’s an idea that came about from Eric Roth to combine these movies using the footage from ‘Paint Houses’ to do another kind of a [film that is] reminiscent of a kind of ‘8 1/2,’ ‘La Dolce Vita,’ [a] certain kind of biographical, semi-biographical type of Hollywood movie — a director and the actor — based on things Marty and I have experienced and kind of overlapping them.”

If this happens with all these people, then this might be the best gangster film since Goodfellas.
