There were a couple rumours swirling around that I wanted to confirm before posting and today I was fortunate to get some answers. So, first the rumour and then the truth.
Rumour – The NY Times has a film page for a Hughes Brothers (From Hell) project with Natalie attached. Thanks to Jenski.
Truth – Natalie is not attached to this project.
Rumour – Yesterday’s news that Natalie might also be directing a short for NY, I Love You.
Truth – This one is on the money. She is acting in one and directing another for the film.
Rumour – Fox News says that Natalie wasn’t at Wednesday nights premiere for My Blueberry Nights because she was busy directing a short for NY, I Love You. Oh, and Kevin Bacon was starring. Thanks to Fanatical.
Truth – Natalie DID miss the premiere because of filming but it isn’t for her NY, I Love You short, which hasn’t got a shooting date yet. Unfortunately I don’t have any info about this mystery project (is she directing? is it a feature?) but hopefully news will break soon. But Kevin Bacon is not involved. He is in Scarlett’s NY, I Love You short so that might be where the confusion comes from. That or Fox News just pulls names out of a hat.
So what do you think this new project is? I’m guess Natalieportman.com: The Movie. Natalie is probably playing the key role of the tortured genius, Dazza, with Kimberly Peirce in the directors chair.
Moving quickly along from that bad joke, a reminder that tomorrow My Blueberry Nights opens on…5 screens? 5 screens! Seriously?!?! I have more screens in my bedroom for crying out loud. Well, if you’re among the lucky 1% who happen to live close to one of those screens, here is a nice primer review from Moriarty of AICN fame.
Next up is a page that has a collection of The Other Boleyn Girl posters from around the world. Its interesting to see all the variations but why does Natalie never get to be in the cuddle-tastic middle position? Thanks to Kat.
And finally, 4 more single pic gallery additions. Thanks to Kochie332 and Mirik.
Elle behind the scenes – that dress at the bottom looks PHWOAR!
