Director Tom Ford Talks About "A Single Man!" Such Passion! 


I truly enjoyed the powerful film "A Single Man," the debut of writer-director Tom Ford who gained international fame for his turnaround of the Gucci fashion house and the creation of the Tom Ford label.

Based on the book by Christopher Isherwood, "A Single Man" tells the story of George Falconer (memorably played by Colin Firth) who's trying to find meaning in his life after the sudden death of his longtime partner, Jim (Matthew Goode).

Firth will be nominated for a Best Actor Oscar for his searing portrayal. Julianne Moore also mesmerizes as George's friend Charley.

Try to catch "A Single Man" in theaters.

In this interview, Ford and I talked about:

*** WHY HE CHOSE TO WORK ON "A SINGLE MAN"
*** HIS PASSION FOR THE FILM
*** WORKING WITH COLIN FIRTH AND JULIANNE MOORE
*** THE AESTHETIC QUALITIES OF "A SINGLE MAN"
*** WHAT'S NEXT FOR TOM FORD?

Have fun!

Next "Harry Potter" Films in 3D, "Clash of the Titans" Pushed Back 


The next two "Harry Potter" films will be released in 3D!

Why?

The Hollywood Reporter told us,

Early 3D-conversion tests on Warners’ remake of “Clash of the Titans” have gone so well that -- combined with boosted enthusiasm for 3D in the wake of the “Avatar” tsunami -- the Burbank studio has decided to release not only “Titans” but also the two-part “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” in 3D.


So far, the studio hasn't confirmed the decision, but an announcement is expected soon.

"Clash of the Titans" has been pushed back one week to April 2. The first "Deathly Hallows" will arrive Nov. 19 of this year, and the second part is scheduled for July 15, 2011.

Who's Going to Play "Conan the Barbarian?" 


Back in June of last year, we revealed that director Marcus Nispel was set to direct the "Conan the Barbarian" reboot. Now, actor Jason Momoa has been tapped to star in the role that made Arnold Schwarzenegger famous.

Momoa, best known for playing Ronon Dex in "Stargate Atlantis," beat "Twilight" star Kellan Lutz for the role.

The reboot is being distributed by Lionsgate and is set to start shooting in Bulgaria in March.

Here's the original article we wrote last year:

Since Brett Ratner said no to directing the "Conan" reboot, Nu Image/Millenium Films hired Marcus Nispel to helm the film.

This will be the third reboot in Nispel's resume. The director was also in charge with relaunching "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" and "Friday the 13th."

Production on the remake is set to start late this year in Bulgaria and South Africa.

The script is written by Thomas Dean Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer, the guys behind "Sahara" and "Cowboys and Aliens." Wait. "Sahara?" Wasn't there a big drama behind that production? And "Sahara" wasn't really a good movie.

So...hhmmmmm...I don't have big faith with this "Conan" production.

The future of this action-adventure about the most famous Barbarian in the world doesn't look bright!

But, Nispel seems to be ready to give his 100% for this film. Variety is reporting that the director wants to blend his childhood imaginings of the character with the influence of the famous Conan illustrations by Frank Frazetta, and the influence of such viscerally violent period films as Mel Gibson's "Apocalypto."

But the big question -- will the original Conan, Arnold Schwarzenegger, make an appearance?
