Blind Item #4

This permanent A+ list director who has an insane budget for his last movie is even more crazy this time around. He has a new film in pre-production.  The film is already running way over budget, and will cost a gargantuan sum to finish.  So much, that it will be nearly impossible to turn a profit.  The original studio is a shell of its former self, and doesn’t have that kind of cash around. He has cast an A+ list mostly movie actor who is many decades younger than his usual go to guys. 

If a film has almost no chance of breaking even, the only people who finance the project tend to be interested in certain other benefits they get promised in return. 

Who are they targeting for funding, then?  Big money in Silicon Valley and the Middle East.

Insane budget makes me think of James Cameron.

Martin Scorsese. Irishman was way over budget. New movie to go has Leo but he has worked with him plenty of times.

Isn’t Cameron doing more Avatar movies?

Lunatics like these ruined the movie business. Tiger Corman made dreck, but he also lived in a nice house with a somewhat modest lifestyle.

Roger! Roger fucking Corman.

+1 on Scorsese and Killers of the Flower Moon and Apple may pay $200 million for it.

Martin Scorsese contacted Netflix and Apple tv about a western movie with Leo D and DeNiro. Paramount cannot fund it.

I bet that Western cast is gonna be a full classroom of underage teens learning to ride a horse for the "first" time

Ridley Scott
Last Duel
Adam Driver

David Andrews said...

Last Duel is past the pre-production stage.

Steven said...

This is definitely Scorsese with the new DiCaprio movie.

I honestly don't understand why Martin Scorsese Films have The Budges that they do.

I mean He Drama's for crying out loud not Superheroes Films.

There is no reason why His Films should be as High Budgeted as they are.

And I honestly hope someone finally tells Him that He needs to cool it on His Budgets if He wants His Projects to continue getting made.

All my fave movies are all old black and whites. They made them all for under $1 million. The other day, we watched Zombieland 2, which as a fan, was good, but it was no Citizen Kane. And the list of people on the credits was ridiculous. It takes way too many people and way too much editing to make movies now. And yes I get that tech stuff adds to it. But psycho is still scary as anything and didnt need cgi or whatever it is called.

Dune?

The days of limitless budgets are ending.

Self isolating and watching a movie about a guy who can't leave his apartment, like me. What movie? Hitchcock's Rear Window with more entertainment value than any number of modern drek.

Killers of the Flower Moon sounds like a great thriller
