Clint Eastwood to Tackle J. Edgar Hoover! 


J. Edgar Hoover's life will get the Clint Eastwood treatment in a new project being developed by Brian Grazer and Imagine Entertainment.

According to EW.com, "Milk" screenwriter, Dustin Lance Black," has written the script that follows "Hoover’s career, from the founding of the FBI in 1935 to his long tenure as director of the crime-fighting organization that lasted until 1972 when he died. Should Eastwood decide to make it his next film, he will produce it with Grazer through his Malpaso Productions."

There's no studio attached to the project yet, although it was originally set up at Universal. But Eastwood has a longstanding relationship with Warner Bros., so this Hoover project may end up at the WB.

Since the script is written by Black, I'm wondering if Hoover's homosexual activities and relationship will be included! They better!

Icon to Icon -- Robert De Niro to Play Vince Lombardi 


The legendary Robert De Niro is set to play football legend Vince Lombardi in the new biopic "Lombardi."

ESPN Films has attached Academy Award winner Eric Roth ("Forrest Gump") to write the script. According to ESPN.com, ESPN Films, Andell Entertainment and the NFL, will tackle Lombardi's illustrious career in football, starting in 1959 when he took over the Green Bay Packers, then the worst team in the NFL. Under Lombardi's direction, the team went on to become champions.

The longstanding drama between Lombardi and Dallas Cowboys coach Tom Landry will also be featured. No actor has been hired yet to play Landry.

Right now, ESPN Films is on the hunt for a director, and "Lombardi" is set to open nationwide the weekend before the 2012 Super Bowl.

My Special One-On-One Interview with Robert Pattinson for "Remember Me" 


I've said it before and I'll say it again, I'm now a fan of Robert Pattinson. He was sweet and shy in person, and he had such honest vulnerability.

When I interviewed him for "Remember Me," we talked about:

*** His involvement with the film (apparently, they offered him "Remember Me" prior to the first "Twilight" -- after "Twilight" came out, he could have easily said no to "Remember Me," but the actor was true to his words, and he really loved the script!)
*** His character, Tyler
*** Working with Ruby Jerins
*** How he identifies with the character

The dashing Pierce Brosnan stars as Charles Hawkins, father of Tyler (Robert Pattinson) and the source of his resentment. I interviewed Brosnan back-to-back for "The Ghost Writer" and "Remember Me."

*** Why he has lots of respect for Pattinson
*** He will NEVER star in a James Bond movie ever again!
*** What he wants viewers to take away after watching "Remember Me"

Have fun!
