FREEDOMLAND Rings for Pair
Julianne Moore and Samuel L. Jackson are in negotiations to star in racially-charged drama.

Julianne Moore and Samuel L. Jackson are in negotiations to star in Freedomland, based on Richard Price's bestselling novel of the same name. Revolution Studios is in talks with Paramount to acquire the rights to the film for Revolution president Joe Roth to direct.

Price adapted his own book into a screenplay. It's the story of the aftermath of a carjacking that becomes a racially-charged media sensation. Shoot will begin in New York in late spring, with a late 2005 release date slated.

Scott Rudin Productions, which had been developing the project at Paramount, will still be attached as producer.

It wasn't really a joke, but I liked that emoticon so I tagged it to the end. I apologize if it disturbed you.

Moore Lines Up NEXT Project

Julianne Moore is becoming fast friends with Revolution Studios. The Oscar-nominated actress has signed on to star with Nicolas Cage in the sci-fi thriller Next for helmer Lee Tamahori. Cage will also produce the film, which is slated to begin in the second half of 2005.

Next will be Moore's fourth film in a year and a half for the studio. Earlier this year she starred in The Forgotten, and she just completed filming The Prizewinner of Defiance, Ohio, which is now in post. Prior to Next, she'll star in the studio's Freedomland for studio head Joe Roth, who will be directing the project.

Adapted by Gary Goldman from the Philip K. Dick short story "The Golden Man," Next would star Moore as a federal agent looking for people who can help predict when a terrorist attack is going to occur. Her work puts her on the trail of a man (Cage) who can predict his own future and change his path if he so chooses.

Source: Hollywood Reporter

Jodie Foster is getting back into the director's chair for "Sugar Kings," a drama for Universal Pictures being produced by studio-based Tribeca Films. The feature also is being developed as a possible starring vehicle for Foster.

"Kings," by screenwriters Ned Zeman and Daniel Barnz, is based on the Vanity Fair article "In the Kingdom of Big Sugar" by Marie Brenner. The story centers on a female lawyer, fresh out of law school, who teams with a veteran public-interest attorney to take on a powerful sugar baron on behalf of exploited migrant workers.
 
Tribeca's Jane Rosenthal is producing.

Production president Donna Langley and senior vp production Holly Bario will oversee the project for Universal Pictures.

The last time Foster directed a film was 1995's "Home for the Holidays." She made her feature directorial debut on "Little Man Tate." She was attached to direct "Flora Plum."

Foster's onscreen projects include the upcoming "Flight Plan" for Walt Disney Pictures. She is filming Imagine Entertainment's "The Inside Man" opposite Denzel Washington and Clive Owen for Universal.

Foster Is THE BRAVE ONE

Jodie Foster, who'll soon be taking off in Buena Vista Pictures' Flightplan, will have to build up some courage for her next role. Daily Variety reports the double Oscar winner has started negotiations to star in the suspense thriller The Brave One, which Joel Silver is producing for Warner Bros. Pictures. If the negotiations should result in a deal, the studio would like to begin filming this winter.
 
Cynthia Mort recently reworked the original script written by Roderick and Bruce Taylor. The project will star Foster as a woman who falls victim to a brutal attack. As she works to recover from the assault, she sets out on a dark journey of revenge and vigilante justice.

Foster is currently in front of cameras on Spike Lee's Inside Man, co-starring Denzel Washington and Clive Owen for Universal Pictures. Prior to Flightplan, Foster had been taking a big screen hiatus with her last major role being 2002's Panic Room. Foster won her Oscars in 1989 and 1992 for her work in The Accused and The Silence of the Lambs, respectively.

Hollywood tackles Hitler's Leni
Jodie Foster courts controversy by starring as the Third Reich's genius of screen propaganda
Source: The Observer
 
Oscar-winning actress Jodie Foster will play the leading role of Riefenstahl in a work that is bound to generate immense argument, as it examines the beautiful woman who became Adolf Hitler's favourite director and whose slick propaganda helped the Nazi war machine.

The on-again, off-again project has been in the works for at least seven years, but now a script is being written - by British writer Rupert Walters - and a director is being negotiated. People involved in the movie say the director should be announced within two or three months and shooting should start by the end of next year at the latest. 'I am hoping to be shooting before then,' said Gabriele Bacher, a producer at Primary Pictures, who will make the film along with Foster's own company.

Foster is no stranger to controversial roles, including her award-winning portrayals of a rape victim in The Accused and a child prostitute in Taxi Driver. But few parts in modern Hollywood history will generate as much debate as Riefenstahl. It will open Foster to charges of lionising an anti-Semite who played a key role in the Third Reich.

Riefenstahl, born in Berlin in 1902, became a dancer and star of silent cinema, before moving into directing. At a 1932 Nazi rally she saw Hitler speak for the first time. It was a mesmerising experience for her, and Hitler in turn saw the young film-maker as someone who could bring Nazi ideals of physical purity to life through the medium of film.

It was a task she accomplished with terrifying skill. She first filmed a Nuremberg rally in 1933. A year later came her masterpiece, Triumph of the Will, a documentary that glorified Hitler and the Nuremberg rallies. Though banned in some places in America, it was a huge success in Europe and is often seen as one of the most brilliant pieces of propaganda ever made. It made use of ground-breaking photographic techniques and innovative editing to imbue the Nazis with a mythic quality that was deeply effective. She also brought her talent to bear on filming the 1936 Berlin Olympics, in which she pioneered many camera techniques still used in sports broadcasting today.

Riefenstahl's Nazi film-making continued in the late 1930s and into the Second World War. On at least one project she is accused of using slave labour from a concentration camp. She also documented the German invasion of Poland and was present in the town of Konskie when 30 civilians were executed. She later claimed she had tried to stop the killings, but she still went on to film the German victory parade in Warsaw. After Hitler invaded France she sent him a message: 'Your deeds exceed the power of human imagination. They are without equal in the history of mankind. How can we ever thank you?'

After the war she spent several years in a French detention centre before being released without charge. She attempted to restart her career, but was largely shunned by a world that despised her Nazi past. Riefenstahl always maintained she had been naive about Hitler and largely ignorant of Nazi crimes. That convinced few of her many critics. Nor did it lessen the role her work played in keeping the Nazis in power. 'She created beautiful surface images for Nazism. With the medium of film she orchestrated that very persuasive image for many Germans. She had a big impact,' said Professor Gavriel Rosenfeld, an expert on the Third Reich at Fairfield University.

Yet Riefenstahl did manage eventually to flourish again. She travelled frequently to Africa and achieved huge success with her still pictures of the Nuba tribe in Sudan. Ironically, her images of the Nuba exalted their physical perfection in an African echo of her previous worship of the Aryan physical form. She also took up scuba diving and pursued underwater photography. She even released a documentary, Underwater Impressions, on her 100th birthday. She died, aged 101, in 2003.

Whatever the morality of her Nazi past, she led a remarkable life. But it is that 1930s and 1940s period that has guaranteed any film about her will generate headlines. It is also what fascinates many people. Riefenstahl has come to symbolise a marriage of artistic genius and political evil. She herself refused to sign a contract for Foster's project while she was still alive, mainly because Foster would not give her the right to reject any of the film that she felt was wrong. She was also thought to prefer Sharon Stone over Foster as an actress better suited to play her.

Bacher insisted that the Foster film would not whitewash any aspect of Riefenstahl's past or show her as some sort of heroine. 'We are not going to downplay her politics,' she said. But Bacher added that Riefenstahl's story was worth telling because she was such a complex figure, who was so talented and yet ended up using her genius in an evil cause. 'This is what is fascinating. The strongest way to understand her is to go on this ride with her,' Bacher said.

The movie is part of a trend of seeing individual figures from the Third Reich in a more morally complex light. It perhaps began with Schindler's List, whose hero, Oskar Schindler, was a Nazi profiteer who ended up saving hundreds of Jewish lives. It has also been represented by morally complex recent German films such as Downfall, which showed the last days in Hitler's bunker, and Mein Fuhrer, the first German comedy about Hitler, which was released earlier this year.

'If any film about Riefenstahl condemns her outright, then it will end up being a very black and white morality tale. If you have shades of grey it might make a better film. In some ways there is a desire on behalf of the audience to see "good" Nazis,' said Rosenfeld.

Quaid to play Bill Clinton in 'Special'
Sheen portraying Tony Blair in HBO film
Source: Variety

Dennis Quaid will star as President Clinton, Michael Sheen will portray British Prime Minister Tony Blair and Julianne Moore will play Hillary Clinton in "The Special Relationship," an HBO film about the unique and sometimes turbulent political relationship between the newly installed PM and the U.S. president.

The film isn't greenlit yet but is expected to mark the directing debut of "Frost/Nixon" playwright Peter Morgan, who wrote the screenplay.

Sheen, who starred as David Frost in "Frost/Nixon," played Blair in the Morgan-scripted "The Deal" and "The Queen." Helen McCrory, who played Cherie Blair in "The Queen," will reprise that role in "The Special Relationship."

Kathleen Kennedy and Morgan are exec producers, along with Andy Harries. Frank Doelger and Ann Wingate are producers. HBO is in discussions with the BBC to come aboard as a producing partner.

Quaid, who next stars in "G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra," will be honored by ShoWest as Male Star of Tomorrow.

The casting broke on several websites Tuesday.

Everything Peter Morgan touches is gold. He's created quite a niche for himself specializing in recent history. This should be good.
