"Once" is one of my favorite flicks this year!
It's a love story-musical that's touching and has really great songs!
And I'm glad that it won big at Moscow's 2Morrow fest which was billed as a festival to honor originality in filmmaking!
"Once" is very original!
So congratulations director John Carney! And you can share your $100,000 prize with me...

This is a delicious dish!
Streep is set to star as the famous chef, Julia Child, with Amy Adams in the film "Julia & Julia."
I love Amy Adams, she's one of the brightest younger stars right now! Love her in "Junebug" and I'm sure she'll stand on her own against the powerhouse known as STREEP!
Nora Ephron, who's adapting the screenplay from Julie Powell's book called "Julia and Julia: 365 Days, 524 Recipes, 1 Tiny Apartment Kitchen," is also set to direct.
Now, I respect Ephron, but she's been a hit or miss director...so let's just hope this project turns out well.
Columbia Pictures is hoping to start shooting in 2008...IF THERE'S NO WRITERS STRIKE!

Right after Butler caused a commotion from "300," he signed on to star in the reamke of John Carpenter's "Escape From New York."
The guy who gave us "U-571" and the horrible "Terminator 3," Jonathan Mostow is set to write with an option to direct.
According to official reasons why Butler escaped the project?
The good old cliche -- "CREATIVE DIFFERENCES"
They should never remake this film anyway!!!!
KURT RUSSELL WILL FOREVER BE SNAKE PLISSKEN!!!

The elusive Julia Roberts is teaming up once again with Clive Owen for the film "Duplicity."
It's going to be released by Universal Pictures with Tony Gilroy, the "Michael Clayton" dude, directing.
Roberts and Owen sparred in the Mike Nichols flick "Closer."
According to Variety, "Duplicity" is a caper pic set in the world of big business. Roberts and Owen play longtime lovers who happened to work as spies on opposite sides. They team up to stage an elaborate con to rip off corporations and steal a valuable product.
