We don't know that yet! We don't know WHAT it's done to him, and we won't know until the next time he posts!

The sci-fi film with a living legend - who?
If I read it in the thread I have already forgotten.
I am Torgo. I take care of the place while the Master is away.

He wrote: "... a period crime movie starring a living legend and a sci-fi film from the producer of Under The Skin."

The living legend is Robert Redford. The project is THE OLD MAN AND THE GUN.

Reading Ghostboy's production blog, I keep being struck by how insanely long a 70-day shoot seems. In the time they've been in production so far, Last Rescue would have been filmed twice with extra days off, and they're still a week away from the halfway point! Part of me loves the idea of having the luxury of money to shoot a movie with, the other part of me is terrified of the idea of having that much time to fuck things up with. And I know with deep certainty that even with those 70 days, he's still going to have a laundry list of shots and scenes he wishes he could have spent more time on. Good lord, I'm ending so many sentences with prepositions.
Now you're in the *spoiler* place.

Some gold from Lowery's blog:

Quote
The highlight of today was introducing Robert Redford to the gaggle of kids he'd be performing with - all non-actors, all under the age of ten or eleven. One particular nine-year-old sized him up with very put-upon swagger and then, moments later, noticed his boots were untied and volunteered to lace them up for him. This wasn't necessarily a kindly offer - there was a bit of one-up-manship to it, a "need someone to fix your shoelaces for, bud?" sort of move. Moments later, a handful of kids had gathered around to see who could best knot this bemused movie star's laces. If I can only hang onto one memory from this movie, this would rank pretty high on the list of candidates.

That makes me wonder. Does a nine-year-old today comprehend what a Robert Redford is? Does that mean anything to those kids, or is he just another old dude they do scenes with in between watching PewDiePie play Five Nights at Freddie's 3 on Youtube?

He's Hail Hydra from Captain America 2.
Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

Incidentally, that's also the only way nine-year-olds know who Garry Shandling is.

I did not know who he was until INDECENT PROPOSAL came out, which was when I was 12, and I remember my mom being disappointed that he was in something so smutty.

I remember watching The Sting at a very young age. I remember loving Redford and Newman's repartee, and I remember not being able to follow the plot AT ALL. Then Sneakers came out when I was ten, and my dad took my brother and me to see it in the theater.

But even beyond the actual movies I had seen him in, I was always aware of his legacy, or at least his cultural impact. He was a Movie Star. In some ways he was the archetypal movie star, in a line you could trace from Clark Gable to Cary Grant to James Dean to him. I don't know that the typical child of today has that relationship with the concept of the movie star anymore.

I'm not trying to say that's inherently a good or bad thing -- I'm not telling the kids to get off my lawn quite yet -- I just find it interesting to think about. The media landscape between when we were kids and now has changed by orders of magnitude.
