Blind Items Revealed #3

April 14, 2020

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.

Martin Scorsese/"The Irishman"/"Killers of the Flower Moon"/Leonardo DiCaprio

Better forget about the Middle East for awhile oil prices are buried underground. Hey Enty did you and Hedge happen to ever short oil futures when you were shorting Tesla and Netflix?? 😂

I just tried to offer my local supermarket minus five dollars for a can of oil.
They forgot all about social distancing until I was ejaculated from the store.

I admit I love almost every movie Leo D has made.

Exactly...
Since 1995 (Casino), Martin Scorsese has worked twice with De Niro. There's The Irishman, and the second collaboration is... an American Express commercial from 2003. Meanwhile, since 2001, he has done five feature films with DiCaprio (Gangs of New York, The Aviator, The Departed, Shutter Island and The Wolf of Wall Street).

Also both DiCaprio and De Niro have already been cast in that project. Because there's usually more than one part for actors in a film. Enty made the De Niro reference to be sure that his favorite delicate flower would get the right answer (and yet she failed, big time), but he's so little of an insider on this film that he didn't even bother to check if De Niro was involved. What mattered was to imply that the investors were degenerates, and that the project would be a front for some shady operations.
