Two different studios. He won’t get to decide. It’s definitely a quick turnaround but I feel like if it was going to move it would have happened already – MGM has shuffled other stuff recently. Unless they decide they have too many Actress priorities already with Jennifer Hudson etc, I think it’s staying where it is.
I agree. 2 different studios. KITBAG is Apple Studios so 3 different Studios.February 12, 2021 at 7:38 pm #1204039702

Lady Gaga and Adam Driver are the Only Leads. Pacino, Irons and Jared Leto are Supporting. They still have to add 1 Actress MoreFebruary 12, 2021 at 12:41 pm #1204039322
2021 is the year of Adam DriverFebruary 11, 2021 at 2:31 pm #1204038007
Yes, when pigs fly. (But he might though) Imagine in a year with multiple award worthy female directors in contention and they give the win to either Fincher or Sorkin…lol! It’d be such an academy thing to do
I hated Mank. But Fincher deserve 1 Oscar for his career. Like Scorsese in the old timesFebruary 11, 2021 at 2:26 pm #1204037999
DiCaprio is So Overrated as Actor. But he has the perfect acting career: All Time Legendary Directors, 7 or 8 Martin Scorsese filmsFebruary 11, 2021 at 6:23 am #1204037048
That’s…a massively limited set. Sure, all 3 were made with high-profile directors and Adam McKay meets that bar on some level, but…so were The Great Gatsby (Baz Luhrmann), Shutter Island (Scorsese!), J. Edgar (Eastwood), and Revolutionary Road (Mendes). Leo is huge, yeah, but he was huge then, and it didn’t necessarily matter for the film. And Shutter Island & Revolutionary Road are great! Even if the film isn’t a dud, there’s literally no guarantee. Especially when something is hyped as much as Don’t Look Up is, more often than not things fail to live up to expectations. If anything I think now that Leo has won his Oscar, it only happens if the film in general is happening (Once Upon A Time in Hollywood was a bigger deal because of Brad Pitt. People weren’t BURNING to give Leo an Oscar for it anymore, why would they now?) The bigger point I was making was that FAB cast ensembles are not a recipe for success. As I mentioned, on paper films like The Prom or Burn After Reading should be runaway Oscar successes. They’re not. Don’t Look Up sounds to me like a film that may be incredibly fun for the actors and even audiences but, like The Great Gatsby, is not necessarily a “Best Picture” movie.
I agree. It’s a comedy. Oscars usually don’t reward comedies. Streep is playing a Female Trump for laughs. So you know 70+ million(the Trump voters) would hate it with passionFebruary 11, 2021 at 6:16 am #1204037039
Gary Oldman in León The Proffesional is perfection. Same with Chow Yun Fat in John Woo filmsFebruary 10, 2021 at 4:36 pm #1204036163
Truth be told they have their iconic movies and their not so iconic ones (anyone remember critters 3 or the man in the iron mask for Leo? Or any of roberts flops? No. )I would say Pacino personally but leo and Robert r in my top ten
I would say Pacino personally too. Especially when Pacino was young he was very natural like in The Godfather 1February 10, 2021 at 4:33 pm #1204036155
As Matt Neglia said on Next Best Picture’s podcast review of the recent Rebecca reboot, he thinks any movie that won the Oscar for Best Picture should never be remade (or rebooted).
FFC was specific. He said All Directors(so far) said No to that job but Paramount is trying to remake The GodfatherFebruary 10, 2021 at 2:56 pm #1204036015
I disagree. I think DiCaprio is a very limited actor. But DiCaprio only works with The Greatest Directors Of All Time. DiCaprio never worked with an awful or bad Director. De Niro worked in a lot of bad movies and maybe some younger people only saw De Niro in bad moviesFebruary 10, 2021 at 2:48 pm #1204035998
Adam McKay’s Vice exploded with Oscar nominations when no one expected it. He won an Oscar for The Big Short. He has a good track record all of late. What makes me most confident is the Leonardo DiCaprio of it all. His last three movies were Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, The Revenant, and The Wolf of Wall Street, and we know how those worked out for him. 3 Oscar nominations (and 1 win) in 3 Best Picture nominees. He can literally have any job he wants and he chose this. So did Blanchett, Streep, Chalamet, who are all in very high demand. Then you add Lawrence, Evans, Rylance, etc. They all signed on even though they all have small-ish parts. So I trust that it’s great.
I only agree about Leo. He is very Intelligent and he is more selective than 99% of Our Industry
