It’s high time for another batch of mini news items. Strap in, here we go!

– First up is some good and bad news. Steven Spielberg has landed the rights to the war photographer memoir, It’s What I Do: A Photographer’s Life Of Love And War, with Jennifer Lawrence set to star. There were a number of big players vying for the rights but I guess once Spielberg steps into the ring, it’s lights out for everyone else. What has this got to do with Natalie? Well it seems her Black Swan director, Darren Aronofsky, was trying to get the rights for Natalie to star. The bad news is evident but for me hearing that Natalie and Darren are keen to work again is even better news. You can read about the hotly contested auction over at Deadline.

– Next up is an impassioned defense of Thor 2: Naptime. I’m glad the guy loved it so much but I feel his plot focused arguments miss the point. All the Marvel films generally have ridiculous plots that you could pick apart if you so wished. What makes them work or not is caring about the characters and the journey. So arguing that Jane Foster needs to be there to give Thor a reason to want to save earth is fine, but it if we don’t feel the connection between them on screen then it’s just words on a page.

– Finally, a new Italian interview with Natalie can be read here, although it will need a translation. Below is a small excerpt.

Never been a party girl?
Never. I have always understood the lightness as a state of mind that does not need to prove such excesses. I happened to go to parties apparently exceptional, but to go home with the feeling of having wasted time.

Thanks to Belerofonte.

    I feel like Natalie’s career lately has been a series of missed opportunities. Let’s hope she has something exciting coming up.

    For Nina

    Maybe later Natalie will organise a closed club party, and a message will be sent to Woody Allain namely where it will be, when it starts and not to come.
    That is the way of reach the highest possibility that he will be there too.

  • Andy says:

    I also received this invitation of course.
    There is feedback from Mr. Allen namely He will not come, and to let the party starts one hour later because that day He will have a meeting with Google in the title of how jokes can be programmed.

    Program joke
    set menu on joketype and so on…

    Not about Natalie!

    A topmodel goes to a professor’s room and saying:
    Make me a baby right now, because if the child will have as beauty as I have and as clever as you she or he will be a superman.
    The professor answer:
    OK, but what if she or he will be as clever as you and will have the beauty as I have?

    Instead of wellcome drink…
