    Will this be completed by the end of this year? Funny Reese Witherspoon joked on twitter the night of the Oscars that she wanted to make a film with the two of them…….and now someone is.

    I don’t think that this film should come out the same year as Sunset Boulevard, mainly because Close and Adams will go up against each other.

    If its the year after then they will both probably already have Oscars.

    King’s current prospects are TV bound. Colman is also tethered to a TV obligation.

    Close has already collected so many TV accolades so she just doesn’t care about it anymore. I hope she keeps this spirit of doing as many Oscar-caliber roles as she can. I think the Academy will give her chances after chances after the losses, and she is taking advantage of this fact to get nominated again, and may turn out to be one of the most nominated actors. I mean plenty of actors struggle to get nominated again after winning despite giving Oscar caliber roles!

    Hopefully she’s still committed to the idea.

    When Close did TV it wasn’t yet trendy but a means of staying financially stable while remaining visible to the public.

    Close and Adams together in the same film? That’s crazy. I’m glad that the both of them are rebounding from those Oscar losses well and moving forward with new projects full steam ahead. Ron Howard though, ugh. I’m not expecting much at all from him, but maybe the ladies will make this worthwhile seeing.

    Ron Howard has made some great films such as Apollo 13, A Beautiful Mind, Cinderella Man, and Rush.

    None of those are “great” films, and “A Beautiful Mind” is absolute trash.

    Gabriel Basso is set to star in the leading role of J.D. Wade.

    It sounds interesting, I’ll admit.

    Being tethered to Netflix probably means it’ll be the first film Howard’s directed since Angels and Demons to actually make money.

    I couldn’t disagree more. I happen to be one of the biggest defenders of not only A Beautiful Mind, but also its success at the Oscars. And didn’t even like Apollo 13? Grant it, I know a forty-something year old lady who didn’t like it either just because she thought it was too long and too depressing.

    Gold star for you then. And yes, that’s what I said. You can read, yay.

    So I read the book this weekend just to see where they could go with the film, and there were definitely parts about the book that I disliked but assuming Adams is the mother and Close is the grandmother, they’ll have VERY meaty roles that could end up doing well come awards season and I’m so excited to see what they end up doing with these characters. I wonder if the screenplay will just focus more on character development or if it’ll flesh out some of the more conservative political analysis included in the book; if so, it’ll be interesting because the book features somewhat politically divisive rhetoric on welfare and rural voters. For me personally, Howard is hit or miss; for every masterful film he’s made, there’s been one that doesn’t really do it for me, but it certainly has the potential to be really interesting.

    Also, Gabriel Basso signing on just makes me miss The Big C even more lol
