Ripley's Believe It Or Not - with Jim Carrey?

From Empire Online:
"Like a committed doctor working on a patient who keeps flat lining, Paramount just won’t give up on Ripley’s Believe It Or Not, and has now hired Eric Roth (The Insider/The Curious Case of Benjamin Button) to write a brand new draft of the script.

Part of the reason that the studio is so intent on making it is the fact that Jim Carrey remains committed to star as Robert Ripley (1890-1949), the newspaper columnist who became internationally famous after chronicling the world’s strangest places, people and events. But while his work eventually led to attractions springing up around the world, Ripley struggled with the concept of appreciating the people he wrote about as more than just the latest fodder for his newspaper column.

There’s also the small matter of the money that has been poured into the film, which was achingly close to production back in 2007 with Tim Burton directing and Carrey in the lead, only for things to shut down when the actor came up with some fresh ideas for the script that Burton liked. Writers Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski did their best to crank out the changes without too much delay, but by then Burton begun work on Sweeney Todd and the momentum was never quite regained.

Next up to try to revive the project were Chris Columbus and Master and Commander writer John Collee, but that didn’t even make it out of development.

So now Roth, who scooped an Oscar for Forrest Gump and has worked on several high-profile biopic-flavoured projects, is the man that studio executives are hoping will get the script to a place where a new director can come in and finally shoot the thing. You’ll pardon us if, given the history of the movie, we don’t hold our breath on that front just yet…"

Jennifer Lopez- "Good Hit" [Music Video Preview]

She looks freaking good, but this song is mediocre at best. The song with Pitbull I posted earlier is much better. At least the video for this looks descent.

SHOES...18th century in vogue again!

While most of us like to fawn over pictures of period fashion from a time gone by, I admire those who do more that just gaze at these costumes but take the time to create new incarnations of the beautiful styles found in various eras. One site that I stumbled upon, American Duchess, has wonderful posts covering historical costuming from the 16th to the 20th century and shares tips on creating outfits as well as offering items for sale. I couldn't believe when I saw these delightful 18th century shoes, that there was actually an image of their protoype since they are in fact being designed for manufacture and will be available for sale in the near future!

Lauren has more details on these shoes including the style and sizes available, and is currently running a poll to determine a name for them that is apropos!

And...the upper material will be dyable silk, which means the ability to match your shoes to your various gowns! Now to find the right gown!

Great design Lauren! Thanks for sharing!

Jane Eyre (2011) - new images & info

More information can be found regarding the highly-anticipated Jane Eyre, starring Mia Wasikowska and Michael Fassbender on the official site of Focus Features!

Here's an excerpt from article: A Classic Novel, A Passionate Adaptation: The Production of Jane Eyre

Producer Alison Owen, an Academy Award nominee and Emmy Award winner, offers, "If you say to someone, ‘What’s the definitive film version of Jane Eyre?’ no one really has an answer. Having made a number of movies from or about women’s fiction, I wondered, ‘Why not?’"

"We’re a company that is rapidly building a healthy reputation for being able to successfully convert well-known written works into big- and small-screen entertainment. Taking on Brontë seemed like the natural next step up the literary ladder," adds producer Paul Trijbits. "It’s a book we already knew had an enormous fan base, so the responsibility was also a major consideration. We wanted to move this interpretation forward into the 21st Century whilst maintaining the story’s haunting beauty."

Owen and Trijbits’ Ruby Film & Television began work on the project, which they took to one of the U.K.’s most prolific film funding organizations, BBC Films, to begin the development process.

Owen adds, "It’s timely in that Charlotte Brontë, seen as ‘the darker sister’ when compared to Emily and Anne Brontë, is being rediscovered much like Jane Austen was nearly 20 years ago.

"As a producer, I make sure to have general meetings with my favorite writers all the time; right after I’d thought about Jane Eyre, I was meeting with Moira Buffini. I happened to mention it and it turned out to be one of Moira’s favorite books, if not her favorite."

Buffini seized on the chance to adapt the book, and she and Owen quickly outlined their vision for a full-on big-screen approach to the story. They knew it had to differ from adaptations that had gone before. Buffini’s approach was to draw out the gothic elements of the story, and make them engines of the piece.

"Moira wanted to make it dark and spooky on an intensely romantic journey. That was her take, which I wholly supported," recalls Owen.

Further, as the novel would be adapted into a two-hour movie, Owen found that "what was brilliant about the script Moira delivered was the structure she’d chosen. The book is quite difficult in some ways to translate to film. Everyone remembers the sections of Jane’s childhood, of Jane being a governess at Thornfield and falling in love with Mr. Rochester, and then bolting.

Sally Hawkins as Mrs. Reed

"But from then on, there’s another set of characters introduced – the Rivers family. You can do that in a novel, but it’s harder to do two-thirds of the way through a movie. Moira’s stroke of genius was that instead of abbreviating or losing this part entirely, which previous adaptations have done, she put it right at the beginning – and turned the novel’s early sections of the young Jane at Lowood and her initial days at Thornfield into flashbacks. Therefore, midway through the third act, we catch up with Jane and you get the emotional punch of being in real time at the end as she comes to terms with everyone and everything."

Jamie Bell as St. John Rivers

Buffini comments, "I hope this will please the many who love the book; while we may not be faithful to the original structure, our version does include every key stage of Jane’s story. Giving the complete picture was also meant to help the uninitiated – those coming to this story for the first time – to understand and identify with Jane all the more."

MD Poll: Global Certainty 2010

The Golden Globes are tomorrow night and, if the "real" voting was as close as it was for out latest MD Poll, it will be a heated race to victory in at least one of the Best Picture categories.

The Social Network narrowly topped the Dramatic competition, closely followed by Black Swan and The King's Speech, in a tie for second place. Meanwhile in the Comedy or Musical category, it should be smooth sailing for The Kids Are All Right, which netted more then 60% of the votes.  See the comments section below for the complete results.

Since the Oscar nominations are only two weeks away, the MD Poll will be taking a short break until then.




Drawing Club: Maleficent

First session back at Drawing Club (Jan 6) and man did I miss it over the break. To make the night even better we had the amazing Sara Streeter as Maleficent. So without further ado here are my sketches with a little Photoshop color to bring out the outfits a bit better.

Throwback Friday: Gwen Stefani- "4 in the Morning"

Every Friday I will be posting an old music video which I may have gotten into again during the week. Today, we're dusting off Gwen Stefani's fourth single from her album The Sweet Escape. The song is "4 in the Morning", possibly one of my favorite Gwen songs and sadly one of her most underrated. It reached the Top 10 only in Australia, Finland and New Zealand. Other peaks around the world include #12 in Ireland, #14 in Holland, #17 in Italy and Canada, and #18 in Germany.

P!nk- "Fucking Perfect" [Music Video Preview]

Check out a preview above for the music video for P!nk's new single "Fucking Perfect". Can't wait to see the full thing, looks good!

Colin Firth honoured on Hollywood Walk of Fame

Colin Firth ,"most recognized gent in period drama" was celebrated on the Hollywood Walk of Fame yesterday! His star can be found right beside fellow British actor Emma Thompson, who just received her star last August!

Firth dedicated the honour to his Italian wife, "I want to thank everybody that has accompanied me on this extraordinary journey, but probably more than anybody I could ever imagine Livia who has walked every step of this with me joyfully and truthfully. When I look down there at that star, it's her name I see."

During his speech, he joked: "I have a feeling I'm going to be here when I'm about 93 under a pile of blankets asking for spare change and trying to convince anyone that will listen that I'm the guy whose name is on the sidewalk - failing to recognise that the old lady next to me is in fact Emma Thompson."

Colin is considered a front runner to win Best Actor at this Sunday's Golden Globes for his role in The King's Speech and many are expecting/hoping that he'll receive an Oscar nomination later this month (January 25th) for his portrayal of King George VI.
