Anyone else hear about the Bob Dylan biopic? It sounds very intriguing , with differnt actors portraying Dylan at diffent times in his life, including a woman and a African-American youth. I wish I could recall who's directing it...

I suspect the script for a beach-volleyball picture would be one of the very few that actually ends up getting filmed in a recognizable form.

These days, you could probably shop around the script for something like Norma Rae, say, and have it end up as a beach-volleyball picture.

With a soundtrack featuring Roger Whitaker:

Incidentally, this one was produced as a play in Toronto. It was hard to miss the posters

Not so much -- more a barely-differentiated mush made up of several songs. I'd say "songs he butchered," except that I suspect than with many of them, that was the best treatment they ever got. Alarming, when you think about it.

From the Done Deal site:

quote:
Title: Blowback
Log line: A rescue mission is set to free a kidnapped engineer in Iraq.
Writer: Sheldon Turner
Agent: Chris Donnelly of Endeavor, mngr. Brian Spink of Benderspink, atty. David Fox of Myman, Abell, Fineman, Greenspan and Light
Buyer: Benderspink
Price: n/a
Genre: Action
Logged: 9/15/04
More: To be based on Megan Stack's Los Angeles Times article "Dispatches From Dharan," which told of the families of Aramco workers in Saudi Arabia after their lives were disrupted by Islamic terrorists who kidnap and murder foreign workers. Sheldon Turner and Benderspink optioned the article. Chris Bender, JC Spink and Sheldon Turner will produce.

What I want to know is: how will they work Jennifer Lopez in there? Cast her as a fiery but good-heated Iraqi woman who first hates the Americans, then ends up supporting them, I suppose.

I heard a story that, while celebrating a win with other fans of whatever-bloody-football-team-that-song-is-about, Stewart had his wallet and watch lifted by some of the self-same adoring fans. Couldn't have happened to a nicer, etc.

Oh. Could be. Honestly, I don't remember seeing a picture of him since approximately the "Do Ya Think I'm Sexy" days.

Keith Richards -- now there's a weathered set of features.

Wouldn't want to see him singing do ya think I'm sexy these days.

Yes Keith and Mick look like they have lost the game of age to a Mac moving truck.

I didn't want to see it in the old days, and I especially didn't want to hear it.

Ooog. Another earworm. There's no end to it.

My understanding is that Keith Richards will play Johnny Depp's father in the sequel to Pirates of the Caribbean.

Speaking of Skeletor, I encourage everyone to lurch, don't walk, to Shaun of the Dead.
