Today's Blind Items - The Other Director

Everyone knows about the disgraced director of mostly superhero movies by now, but somehow this very close associate and partner in crime of his seems to skate under the radar.

He is a foreign-born director known for doing big-budget movies of a certain genre. He has been present and complicit in many of the events the disgraced director, as well as the disgraced A-list actor, took part in. He and the disgraced director would often hold private “casting sessions” with party guests at his house, which he apparently decorates with highly grotesque and offensive art to make them as uncomfortable as possible.

If you ever wondered why his former composer, who created some iconic scores for his films, suddenly stopped working with him, it’s a good bet he found out some things.

MJ said...

Roland Emmerich sure was a" partner in crime" of Singer, at least in the past, so, most likely is him

( also, R. Murphy was involved, too, i have read awful things he had done at times of these parties, with Fox complicity )

E said...

Christopher Nolan/Hans Zimmer

Last film together: Dunkirk

Wasn't the pool parties a Roland Emmerich/Bryan Singer production?

Emmerich is the only name mentioned here that would make sense. Gay, so Enty will write something about him being a pedophile.

Beyond that, the details are as sloppy as usual. The composer for Stargate, Independence Day, Godzilla is David Arnold. For two decades, Emmerich has mostly worked with a team of two Austrian composers. But it's not as if Arnold is in high demand himself. He hasn't written a full score for a film since 2011. Apart from his work on Sherlock (where I'm not even sure he's contributed beyond the main theme), the only noticeable TV show he's done lately is Good Omens from last year. And he hasn't written a single James Bond score since Quantum of Solace in 2008 (arguably, one of his best works).

So, the argument of the composer who stopped working with Emmerich because "it's a good bet he found out some things" tell you everything you need to know about how much bullshit there is in the blind item. Many directors and producers have actually stopped working with Arnold for a decade. Maybe he's lost some of his edge, maybe he's difficult to work with, maybe he's semi-retired but it's a FACT that he's not much in demand these days.

Openly gay director Roland Emmerich, of the “Independence Day” franchise, told The Advocate that he and Singer traditionally hosted scores of “twinks” at a Pride weekend party each June. However, the last one in 2009 drew about 1,200 guests. Emmerich had enough, and suggested they limit attendance to 400. “You know what Bryan said? ‘You want to make it that exclusive?’ I said, ‘Are you kidding me?’ But then I kind of realized when [Singer] makes a New Year’s party, there’s like 600, 700 twinks running around.”

KUDOS!!

MissDavie said...

IKR. I never heard of Emmerich until now. Anoter old queen with a latin boy lover. How original.

SlimKeith said...

Tiff-there is absolutely nothing scandalous with those comments, the only thing that surprises me is that someone would find them some how objectionalbe Who gives a shit. That whole party scene is part of their culture for gay men. You'd think it was 1970 not 2020.

JHanoi said...

You’re missing the woke point of the ‘twink’ parties.
Yes, it was the old traditional cultural of hollywood to have/host/attend big partys. For hosts and their friends it was a way to get alot of action, sex, and casting couch applicants. For the twinks and young malee heteros , it was a way to get action, drugs, and get on the casting couch. But now in the me too era, some casting couch applicants can now claim boohoo i was groped, drugged, raped, social distance not maintained and i caught a virus or had a mental breakdown.

rednoir said...

Correct MDAnderson, John Ottman composed for Singer. They had a dispute when Ottman wanted to direct Urban Legends 2, which I worked on, and couldn't work with Singer on his latest project, which I can't remember. I think they made up later and he went back to composing, especially after UL2 tanked. Both men are profound jerks.
