Mulholland Drive 2 – A sequel to David Lynch’s classic movie?

Posted by LiveFor on April 11, 2010

Can you believe it was 20 years ago that we got to have some damn fine coffee with Agent Cooper when Twin Peaks began? I lovedthat show and must pick up the second series.

I always love Lynch’s work even when it leaves me feeling totally confused. Inland Empire I am talking to you.

One of my favourite films of his was Mulholland Drive. That was the film that started life as a TV series, but the studios changed their mind and it became a feature film starring Naomi Watts and the lovely brunetter Laura Harring, and yes it did have that scene between the two of them. It also had a little blue box, Billy Ray Cyrus, a cowboy, weird smiling old people and so much more. My fave scene is when Naomi Watts is auditioning for a role – previously when rehearsing for it she was quite wooden but at the audition it is just mind blowing stuff. Go watch that film if you haven’t already and I think I’ll add it to the Live for Films movie club. May even do a poster redesign challenge for it.

Why the reason for this? Well the title of the post give is away.

Laura Harring tells PopcornBiz she met up with Lynch last week and that she believes a follow up to the 2001 classic is going to happen.

“I’m very sure it’s coming, it’s being born,” she said. “I cannot really tell you how I know.”

A suitably cryptic response for something involving Lynch.

If there was a sequel I’m not sure where it would take us and that’s half the fun.

Would you want a sequel to Mulholland Drive? What could happen in it? Where could it begin?

Sean Penn faces the Cartel

Posted by LiveFor on March 11, 2009

Sean Penn is in talks to star in the action drama “Cartel” for Universal Pictures and Imagine Entertainment reports Variety.

Scripted by Peter Craig, the mission movie will follow Ed Marker as he journeys to protect his son after his wife is brutally murdered in the gritty world of Mexican cartels.

The project began as a remake of the 1993 Italian film “La scorta” before evolving into an action vehicle for Penn.

Asger Leth (“Ghosts of Cite Soleil”) will direct and Brian Grazer is producing. Production is currently aiming for a Summer start if Penn’s deal can be locked.

Penn is still in discussions to star with Naomi Watts in the Doug Liman-directed Valerie Plame scandal drama “Fair Game”.

King Lear is dead…Long live King Lear

Posted by LiveFor on February 26, 2009


A Hollywood adaptation of Shakespearean tragedy King Lear has been cancelled after reportedly falling victim to the current global economic crisis.

The film was due to star Sir Anthony Hopkins in the title role alongside Gwyneth Paltrow, Keira Knightly and Naomi Watts as the monarch’s three daughters.

The $36 million (£25 million) production was announced at last year’s Cannes Film Festival in France but has now been scrapped.

The decision was reportedly made after movie bosses found it difficult to secure the required investment.

A spokeswoman for Ruby Films, the production company behind the film, says, “Ruby are no longer doing it – the film will no longer go ahead. It has not really been announced.”

The move now clears the way for a rival production from director Michael Radford, starring Al Pacino, which will still go ahead.

Who would you rather see as King Lear? Pacino or Hopkins?

They control your money. They control your government. They control your life. And everybody pays. Not like R.E.M. who said Everybody Hurts.

Shot from Ghost Rider used in The International trailer

Posted by LiveFor on September 13, 2008

This from /film – The same exact shot from Ghost Rider, was used in the new trailer for The International. Both films are produced by Columbia Pictures / Sony, so they obviously own the rights to the footage. In the Ghost Rider clip, which can be seen here, the car explodes as Ghost Rider rides by the car on his bike. In the International trailer, the Ghost Rider CG is absent, and the clip is shown right after someone enters something into an ATM machine.

First Showing also think some footage is from Black Hawk Down – Tom Tykwer, who directed The International, is a European filmmaker. He’s got a lot of style in his films and I bet this really doesn’t have as much explosive action as the studio wants. So to beef up the marketing and capture the attention of the Michael Bay-hungry audiences of America, they threw in an exploding car and some extra helicopters. Yep, that’s how our society works. From the trailer for The International, the exploding car can be found at 0:22, while the helicopters (that I think are from Black Hawk Down) are at 0:51.

The top image is the one from Ghost Rider, the one below is from The International.

The International stars Clive Owen and Naomi Watts. An Interpol agent (Owen) attempts to expose a high-profile financial institution’s role in an international arms dealing ring. Oh and it also stars Remy Auberjonois who is the son of Rene Auberjonois who was Odo in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine!
