Blind Item #10

This A- list actress/director who all of you know tried really hard to land the directing gig for this long long awaited sequel to a haunted holiday favorite. An executive from the studio in a accidental reply all email said there was no way a woman was getting the gig.

elizabeth banks?

Brayson87 said...

Nightmare was my first thought MyDog, seems like they were thinking about it last fall.

IndieRaga said...

Wait...so there's proof he denied her because she's a woman!
Blackmail babes!

Brayson87 said...

Although I think a sequel to Santa's Slay would be better than trying to ruin a classic.

Huckleberry said...

Jolie could act in an Addams family movie right now without any professional makeup and wardrobe required.

MyDogSmiles said...

@Brayson Yeah, they've been talking about it.

Paranormal Activity 7 has been in the news for a couple days. The last one was a Xmas movie.

Jolie/Hocus Pocus.

All-female remake of the Exorcist, except Pazuzu is a male.

Aquagirl said...

@Indie: If it’s Angie, they don’t need to use the fact that she’s a female. She sucks as a director which is a good enough reason.

hunter said...

I'm with Aquagirl - them saying no to Angelina does not strike me as a knock against women but a knock against her.

We all remember this wouldn't be the first email to be "accidentally" sent out that says she sucks balls and shouldn't be given what she wants.

Angelina is not an amazing director or that Wind By The Sea bullshit wouldn't have been such a disaster. The other Affleck bro did a Depressing By The Sea movie and it won wide acclaim (I saw neither film) so she's not exactly accomplished.

If the lady who did Wonder Woman got turned down, that would be different.

Jolie/Hocus Pocus 2.

I guess she figures she's already done the research.

If she slept with the producer, her gender would not be a problem. Remember, not every producer is as ugly as Harvey.

Angie- Hocus Pocus 2

IndieRaga said...

there was no way a woman was getting the gig.....I went by the wording of the blind.

PhillyWilly said...

A-?? girl interrupted was like 25 years ago. wtf has she been good in, or been in thats good. and she fucking ruined unbroken, the amazing, practically unbelievable, true story of Louis Zamperini. that man deserved an Oscar quality film about his life, a true American hero. an NYU first semester film student with enough sought could have done better. sorry, thats my AJ rant, cant stand her. the parental alienation crap is like only the 5th thing thats wrong with her,

PhillyWilly said...

dough * not sought

idiot slayer said...

So I guess a female director would "ruin the childhoods" of all those incels who grew up loving Hocus Pocus I.

kiki71 said...

@ Hunter but it didn't say there is no way THAT woman is getting the gig. It said A woman which is not just a knock against Angie alone at all.

HOcus pocus elizabeth banks

MissDavie said...

Great. A female Scrooge.

SlimKeith said...

I always think of Scrouge at Christmas-my son and I watch it every year on Christmas eve then It's a wonderful life on Christmas.
Thanksgiving is Planes, trains and automobiles. LOVE that film. I miss John Candy. I just read an article about his kids, who seem really cool.

hunter said...

@kiki71 - you're right, I've just re-read the blind and see it differently now.

notthisagain said...

Um...this would be easy evidence for a lawsuit. Drag them into the light, it’s right there. The whole world will pay attention.

JL said...

Effers

Ebb said...

@Huckleberry - I couldn't agree more. Just the thought of it.....frightening.

TwoDots said...

I mean fuck the executive POS, there are plenty of fantastic directors out there who don’t have a penis. Angie Jo just ain’t one of them.

Unknown said...

Angelina...Ho Arse Poke Arse Too.

Jeff Goldblum's viagra prescription said...

@TwoDots - I agree with everything you said.

Greta Gerwig?

MichiganMama59 said...

I wonder how everyone would react if they did The Color Purple with a male cast?

Unknown said...

They'd have to call it the Color Purple Helmet.

Sexism still exists. Disgusting. So many men out there who hate women so much, and see us as subhuman.

orangesoda said...

Maybe she got rejected because she's a shit director lol (which she is, by the way).
