Blind Item #8

Apparently things are not going well without this A list producer, so executives at this large movie studio are going to just give him a slap on the wrist for all his bad behavior towards women and welcome him back with open arms.

Wasn't that always the plan?

Well, I don't think Singer & Schneider care for grown women...

Producer, not director

Kate K said...

He's done a ton of producing. And it's certainly not Weinstein. Who else?

More evidence that money is more important than #MeToo, they'll hire all the pigs back first chance they get.

Yes, that was always the plan. Damage control through limited hangouts and leaking out gray-area cases and false reports to make the true reports seem overblown and sketchy; trumpet the Cosby case as evidence that they don't really get away with it so relax; have the media run humanizing pieces about the perpetrators and their families; and eventually they're all getting Polanski-style ovations at the Oscars. They're up to step 3 of that process.

#MeToo happened to be useful in the Alabama election last year, so Hollywood acted like it was the most important issue ever; but as soon as that was over, it could hurt no one except themselves, so it was time to start pulling it back. If it hadn't been for that, it would have been squelched sooner.

Here's the Hollywood excuse -

It's tough finding really good producers.

I don't know about that.

I have only a very vague idea of what a producer actually does. All I know is that producers are the people who decide which movies get made and (help) finance them. But I have no idea how that actually works. Do producers typically invest their own money? And how much influence do they have on the final product?

hunter said...

Producers get other people to invest money - that's their #1 function.

The second thing they do is arrange everything that makes the movie possible, again - namely funding but could also extend to getting the rights to shoot certain places, ensure certain people sign on, ensure certain rights are secured.

But mostly it's the funding. I recently had a film buddy explain this to me, but we needed a "producer" for a video we're doing and that person needs to arrange all the locations, outfits, transportation, details. So apparently there are two types of production activities.

THE MORE YOU KNOW!

Basically there are:

Executive Producers - bring rights, money, studio or some key non creative element and don't do anything functional

Creative Producers- rights, project, script, director, cast etc.

Line Producers- the functional/technical/budget & schedule making of the actual film

Associate/Co - Someone being paid back with a credit for doing something limited or having some leverage in the project but not much power


There can be various degrees of overlap and different focuses, depending on the person and project.
