Francis Ford Coppola unlikely to make big studio films

HollywoodNews.com: Francis Ford Coppola will continue to make small, indie films.
The director announced his creative game plan at a private party during the New York City Wine & Food Festival.
“(My) future film projects would be small- budget and big on (my) personal experiences,” said the Oscar winning director.
It’s no surprise to hear this. Since 1986 when his son Gio died in a boating accident, Coppola has devoted most of his resume to making smaller films. The last big studio-like film he directed was the 1997 feature adaptation of the John Grisham legal novel “The Rainmaker” starring Matt Damon, Mickey Rourke, Jon Voight, Danny DeVito and Claire Danes.
Coppola’s last film, which was shot in black and white and lensed in Argentina, “Tetro,” was lost at the global box office with a total cume of just under $3 million.
Coppola’s favorite movie in his list of credits, per Page Six, isn’t “The Godfather,” rather the Matt Dillon headliner “Rumble Fish.”

What you missed backstage from the Emmy Winners’ Circle

By Marilyn Beck and Stacy Jenel Smith
HollywoodNews.com: George Clooney proved again how utterly charming he is, Al Pacino quoted Michelangelo, and Kyra Sedgwick talked the fifth time being the charm backstage at the 62nd Annual Primetime Emmy Awards.
Maybe it was that First Amendment question that got things rolling. George Clooney, honored with the Bob Hope Humanitarian Award for his fund-raising work including this year’s multi-network telethon for Haiti earthquake relief, was asked about the conflict between wanting to maintain some kind of privacy in his life and his belief in the First Amendment.
He said firmly that, as the son of a newsman, “I always felt that the inconveniences I have are worth it rather than infringing on anyone else’s rights.”
Alrighty then, open season!
Clooney quickly deflected a question about his date – girlfriend Elisabetta Canalis — noting that “She picked me up in Italy” and yes, she was around.
He said he’d spent part of his day shooting hoops: “John Krasinski came over to my house with a bunch of guys to play basketball. If you see him later, well, he’s limping.”
Illustrating anew that the stars’ biggest fans are other stars, Clooney confessed to a moment of that star-struck feeling when he found himself with Al Pacino and Tom Selleck in the green room, and “suddenly I’m 14 years old. It’s very funny.”
He also gave the telecast its first glowing review: “The show is really good tonight. Jimmy Fallon is just really killing it. He’s just really funny.”
George on Prop 8 being lifted: “I think it’s terrific. Now it’s unlifted again…These are things that take a long time to change…People will look back on this period of history and think of it as an archaic time.”
George on his “ER” leading lady, Julianna Margulies, presenting his award: “It’s pretty great. We’ve stayed in touch. We’re good friends.”
Clooney talked about the namesake of his award, Bob Hope, noting, “It wasn’t just the USO shows. That’s something everybody remembers him for 50 years. He was one of the great charitable actors. He did it all, always a great sense of humor. He was fun. He’d just show up and do something.” Asked what he learned from Hope, Clooney, who knew the iconic comedian personally as a young man, recalled that “What you learn from him was, he didn’t take [...]

Baz on Blu-ray! “Romeo” and “Moulin Rouge!” getting hi-def treatment

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Certain filmmakers seems born for Blu-ray. Take Baz Luhrmann, for instance. The Aussie talent’s flair for vibrant visuals should go with the crisp, clear Blu-ray conversion like peanut butter goes with jelly.
We’ll find out for sure come Oct. 19, when two of Luhrmann’s groundbreaking films get the Blu-ray treatment from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.
“William Shakespeare’s Romeo + Juliet,” with Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes in the tragic leads, and Luhrmann’s stunning musical, “Moulin Rouge!,” will make their way to Blu-ray on extras-laden platters.
As per Fox’s release:
Flaunting a new high-definition transfer and spectacular picture-in-picture experience, both Blu-ray discs of the award-winning films boast new uncut footage, BD-LIVE: Live Lookup Powered by IMDb, as well as a host of other never-before-seen material produced by Luhrmann and his creative team at Bazmark. And for first time ever, Moulin Rouge! includes an alternate opening sequence featuring the Cat Stevens hit “Father & Son.”
Discussing the latest in home-video technology, Luhrmann said,
“As a fan, I’ve seen examples where the technology is so powerful, a much-loved film goes in for a Blu-ray treatment and, somewhat like a friend who has had too much surgery, you no longer recognize them.
“Mindful of the relationship evolved with many fans of these two films, the esteemed digital intermediate colorist Jan Yarbrough, who recently completed color restorations of North by Northwest and The Godfather films, and I sat together day in and day out seeking to maintain the color philosophy forged in the cauldron of shooting, while giving full reign to the power of high-definition technology to deliver a Moulin Rouge and an R+J that audiences will recognize but are nevertheless realized at the highest possible visual quality.
“As a filmmaker you never know whether you will ever have a chance to revisit movies again, and so we have gone about this with the attitude that this could be for the last time.”

Jack Black will rock laughs again with director Linklater in ‘Bernie’

HollywoodNews.com: Jack Black is working with director Richard Linklater again.
The duo will team on the dark comedy “Bernie.”
Black and Linklater originally worked together on the tween pleaser “The School of Rock” which made over $131 million worldwide in 2003.
Shirley MacLaine is slotted to co-star with Black in “Bernie.” Cameras are set to roll in October.
The Hollywood Reporter, which had the story, describes:
“Bernie” is set in the small town of Carthage, Texas and follows a Renaissance man-community leader-mortician Bernie (Black) who strikes up an unlikely friendship with a wealthy but very particular widow (MacLaine). When he kills her, he goes to great lengths to maintain the illusion that she is still alive.
Black’s next film is the 3D adventure comedy “Gulliver’s Travels” from Fox. The film bows on December 22.
Linklater’s last film was the period piece “Me and Orson Welles” which starred Zac Efron and Claire Danes.

Hollywood TV Roundup: A look at the Emmy Noms

HollywoodNews.com: “Glee” fever is so strong that it swayed Emmy voters who lauded the TV show with 19 nominations. But that wasn’t the only show to catch their eye: HBO’s miniseries “The Pacific” harpooned 24 nods.
In years past, the Emmys use to favor those series which were on the air for seasons on end, often times honoring them later in their run. But in recent years, the organization has become open minded to frosh shows, evident in its embrace of Fox’s “Glee,” ABC sitcom “Modern Family,” CBS’ “The Good Wife” and Showtime’s “Nurse Jackie.”
That said, the Emmys continue to have its favorites, i.e. “Mad Men,” “Breaking Bad” and “30 Rock.”
The 62nd Primetime Emmy Awards will air on August 29 on NBC with Jimmy Fallon hosting from the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles. For the first time in 30 years, the awards show will air live all over the nation.
In terms of those series that aired season finales, Emmy voters favored ABC’s “Lost” in the top categories over Fox’s “24.”
New shows predominantly received some love in the supporting actor categories which saw a majority of the “Modern Family” cast in competition: Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Eric Stonestreet, Ty Burrell, Julie Bowen and Sofia Vergara were recognized. “Glee” co-stars Jane Lynch and Chris Colfer received nods. “Good Wife” co-star Christine Baranski was lauded.
The nominees for best reality included CBS’ “The Amazing Race,” Fox’s “American Idol,” ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars,” Bravo’s “Project Runway” and “Top Chef.”
Among those in the best variety, music or comedy series slot, Conan O’Brien from NBC’s “Tonight Show” will vie against seven-time winner Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show,” as well as “The Colbert Report,” HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher” and NBC’s “Saturday Night Live.”
Some outlets are reporting a reduced number of snubs, but that’s not true, for they abounded — greatly. TNT’s drama-edy “Men of a Certain Age” and its leading man Ray Romano were shut out of the drama and best actor categories (though co-star Andre Braugher earned a supporting actor nod). FX’s “Justified” was unjustly not recognized. ABC’s comedy “Cougar Town” and leading gal Courteney Cox didn’t find a destination on the list. And HBO’s “Treme” and “Big Love” were overlooked. Please let us know what favorite shows of yours weren’t honored.
Below is a list of Emmy nominees in major categories for the [...]
