Harvey Keitel RIP – What a focking focker

Posted by LiveFor on November 12, 2009

just harveyRest in peace he who was Mr White, Bad Lieutenant Auggie Wren, The Wolf, and all the other cool characters. Don’t worry he isn’t dead. He’s just joining Robert De Niro in Little Fockers.

Oh how the mighty have fallen since Mean Streets. THR had the news.

Harvey Keitel has joined the cast of Universal and Tribeca Prods.’ “Meet the Fockers” sequel.

Regulars Ben Stiller, Teri Polo, Robert De Niro, Blythe Danner and Owen Wilson are returning, along with newcomers Jessica Alba and Laura Dern.

Paul Weitz (“In Good Company”) is directing the film, which has the working title of “Little Fockers,” since it focuses on the main couple’s children. Keitel will play a contractor employed by Stiller’s character


Well that sounds like a whole heap of naffness. I thought the first one was a piece of irritating fluff – I like Ben Stiller, but he does make some bad films. Anyone seen Envy? I rest my case.

How on Earth these Focker films get top actors to be involved I just don’t know. Well apart from the money. Am I missing something about the films? Is it just me?

One thing I’ve learnt from this? Only that he played a Nazi soldier in Hogan’s Heroes. Who knew?

Oh and I’m back. Thanks to Ishmael for helping out.

The Random – The Losers, Dead Spy Running, Howl, Old Timers, Little Fockers, Shocker, The People Under the Stairs

Posted by LiveFor on February 20, 2009

According to Variety, “Watchmen” and “Grey’s Anatomy” actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan has signed on to topline the adaptation of the Vertigo comic, The Losers. The James Vanderbilt-scripted project is being financed by Dark Castle Entertainment with Dark Castle’s Joel Silver, Weed Road’s Akiva Goldsman and Kerry Foster producing. The Losers regroup in the interest of revenge and the opportunity to remove their names from a secret CIA death list and to conduct covert operations against the CIA and its interests. Morgan would play Clay, the group’s leader, whose signature look favors black suits without ties. Morgan is also shooting the Hammer Films thriller The Resident with Hilary Swank around the same time so schedules are currently being worked out.

“Traffic” scribe Stephen Gaghan will pen the adaptation of Jon Stock’s espionage novel Dead Spy Running for Warner Bros. Pictures says The Hollywood Reporter. The story is the first in a trilogy and aims to reinvent the spy genre by telling the origin story of a newly trained spy which mixes Robert Ludlum’s grittiness with John Le Carre’s wit. McG is attached to direct the project which kicks off with the protagonist running the London Marathon, where a fellow racer is strapped with explosives. The scenario leads to a globe-trotting adventure to clear the name of the man’s father.

Werc Werk Works is set to produce and fully finance Howl, taking over some of the reigns of the Allen Ginsberg-themed project from Telling Pictures reports Variety. “Howl” centers on the obscenity trial over Ginsberg’s famed poem, as well as an animated reimagining of the poem itself. James Franco, David Strathairn, Alan Alda, Jeff Daniels, Mary-Louise Parker and Paul Rudd star in the project which begins shooting March 16th in New York City.

Sidney Kimmel Entertainment has picked up playwright Noah Haidle’s spec script Old Timers says the trades. The script follows two sixtysomething cons who have one final night to do everything they’ve wanted and reunite their gang before one of them meets his demise.

John Hamburg has come aboard to rewrite Larry Stuckey’s screenplay for Little Fockers, the third film in the “Meet the Parents” comedy series reports Risky Biz Blog.

Wes Craven spoke to JoBlo AITH about some more of his films being remade – “We’re actually talking about remaking THE PEOPLE UNDER THE STAIRS. Possibly SHOCKER also. So these ones that we’ve been remaking, especially THE HILLS HAVE EYES and THE LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT, I own with the producer. Two different producers and both close friends. Peter Locke with The Hills Have Eyes and Sean Cunningham with Last House. So we now own them after thirty years we got them back. It’s funny because when we made those deals we thought, we’ll never be alive in thirty years, we were all like [mimicking smoking pot]… but it turns out we’re still alive. So were able to remake those. And People Under the Stairs and Shocker, although we don’t own them, Universal owns them but we have rights with Universal and myself, and the producer who is Shep Gordon to say yes or no. So if we all say yes we can do it. Universal can’t go off and make them with somebody else. So we’re talking about doing that now.”
