Blind Item #9

This Oscar nominate/winning A list director has had very few bombs in his career. Not so long ago though he had a huge bomb. I actually think if it was released within the past week or two it would have done much much better. I also think what would have made it do better is if the director had not spent so much time trying to have sex with one of the actors in the movie. It was just a constant, never ending wearing down of the actor until he finally gave in. From that point on, he continued to give in rather than listen to more of the pleading.

Gus Van Zant?

Normal. Yes indeed. said...

Spielberg and Rylance. Just for the hell of it.

sandybrook said...

I want this to be Darren Aronofsky so bad😣

Moose said...

Rob Marshall ("9" being the bomb)

JrSlims said...

Steven Soderbergh - Logan Lucky. Hard to figure which actor.

Samantha Willow said...

If Logan Lucky then Channing Tatum? (please not Adam Driver...)

Moose said...

Soderbergh is on his 2nd wife (married for 15 years) and has two kids.

Tricia13 said...

Maybe Todd Haynes/Wonderstruck-Cory Michael Williams (the actor?)

The Heiress said...

I like Tricia13's guess. I'm going to say Director: Gus Van Sant, Movie: The Sea of Trees (It's about the suicide forest that was just all over the news because of that youtube kid), actor: Jordan Gavaris.

Florin said...

That's great, Moose, but none of that doesn't mean he doesn't want to have sex with men. Not saying it's Soderbergh, but a wife and kids don't mean he's not chasing man-booty.

Tricia13 said...

With Matt Mc as the guy? I thought so too but he doesn’t seem like he would acquiesce to anyone.... also Gus likes younger guys/boys. Trust.

David Howes said...

So many films 'bomb' that this is a hard one to even guess.

filmfanb said...

Sounds like Gus Van Sant. Cant really think of many A list directors with recent bombs....Unless Scorsese has started doing stuff.

Don Kieballs said...

If Soderbergh, I think The Girlfriend Experience would be the movie according to the would have done better if released within the past few weeks part of the blind.
The IMDB summary is "A drama set in the days leading up to the 2008 Presidential election, and centered on a high-end Manhattan call girl meeting the challenges of her boyfriend, her clients, and her work."

Jordan Gavaris in Sea of Trees

i think van sant has had a lot of bombs. remember even cowgirls get the blues? also, sea of trees was panned universally, i don't think being released a year or two later would have made a difference regardless of relevancy.

This Blind Item Revealed back in 2016 confirms McConaughey / Gus Van Sant

A dumb idiot said...

Van Sant, the movie Sea of Trees would have been more relevant today because of the Logan Paul stuff

Elle Kaye said...

I heard that, too, Tricia. I dated a guy who lived in Portland and he said everyone knew he used to pick up young homeless boys to “help” them but it was really so he could do what he wanted to them.

Tricia13 said...

Elle Kaye- My Own Private Idaho was autobiographical (semi)....and yep:(

Tricia13 said...

Met him one time in LA at the Sunset 5 and he was on a date with a 15 year old. No exaggeration.
I think I took a bleach shower that night and watched Bambi on loop or something

SkittleKitty said...

Logan Lucky should have found an audience; it was really good.
I defer to the other guesses. Haynes seems to fit the clues the best.

Tricia13 said...

Cory Michael Smith! Sorry just retreading thread and I never corrected his name....

Sign Name Below said...

Bravo! @Steve

Sign Name Below said...

@The Heiress Good catch on the obscure clue!

I don’t think of Gus Van Sant as having very few bombs in his career. Maybe among his bigger studio films, but he has also made many smaller, more minor films.

The first person who came to mind for me was Alexander Payne. Downsizing was an unusual disappointment for him. I think it got lost among the Christmas releases and could possibly have done better had it been released now.

However, I’ve never heard a word about Payne being gay, and I doubt he slept with Matt Damon! (Neil Patrick Harris?)

This is my first post but—as always in my mind—I defer to Tricia.

Sadie said...

Enty's recycling an old BI but I doubt if McConaughey ever gave in to him. Gus is repulsive.

This blog has been occupied by The Professionals.

rlaro said...

Ang Lee's movie with Taylor's fake bf would be a bomb at any time

Scandi Sanskrit said...

I had to Google him. He's American just with a very Dutch-sounding name.

McJ 2051 said...

I like the Gus Van Sant guess, and the movie, but I'll go for a younger actor - Jordan Gavaris.
