8 Degrees of Linking

/Film Angela Lansbury wanted for Wes Anderson's next film? Gah!
My New Plaid Pants JA delights me when he reorganizes the world. #TeamCharbender ! 
Oscar Metrics returns (yay Mark Harris!) with a conversation about 2012's first ½
Low Resolution thinks Salma Hayek is g-r-e-a-t in Savages and that the movie isn't so bad either 
Hollywood Reporter Channing Tatum's next two projects are lined up: Foxcatcher for Bennett Miller and another filmed version of daredevil Evel Knievel's life, both true stories.
Daily Mail ...and Chan is also interested in a Magic Mike sequel and has made a not-very-serious offer to play the male lead in the erotic drama 50 Shades of Grey
Guardian Chris Nolan is suggesting that someone make a Catwoman spinoff for Anne Hathaway. "She deserves it." 
Empire Josh Trank will helm the Fantastic Four reboot as expected (that's one reboot we'll be happy to see -- bad movies deserve to be rebooted, not good ones!) but Daredevil has lost its director. The rights to Daredevil may shift back to Marvel if the film isn't in production by the fall. Please let Fox biff this one. Marvel is better at this now! Keep them all in the same universe.

Have you picked up the Margaret Blu-Ray yet to see what #TeamMargaret was all about last Dec/Jan? I'll discuss it soon if you want. Here's an 8 Degrees of Separation Infographic detailing the various cast connections. I love that Ladyhawke is mentioned. So very random!

I can't believe Bennett Miller cast Channing Tatum in Ratcatcher. I was eagerly anticipating that movie (the story behind it is fascinating, and I think Steve Carrell could become a Bill Murray-esque dramatic actor with the right parts), but CT just reads so clueless to me. That said, I know you like him, Nathaniel, and maybe he'll be suited to the role.

Oops, I meant Foxcatcher. Obviously I have Lynne Ramsay on the brain.

If news regarding Wes Anderson seeking out the legendary Angela Lansbury for his next film are true, I'll think I'm gonna die from happiness! The lady is AMAZING and criminally underrated, unappreciated and underused by Hollywood and film industry. Thank God for for Broadway!

I love that Ladyhawke is mentioned too, although it's kind of frustrating that Michelle Pfeiffer and Meg Ryan are only one degree of Matthew Broderick away from each other!

Meg has quite an influence on that Infographic when you look at it.
As well as Matthew and Jean Reno, she's also co-stared with Matt Damon (Courage Under Fire), Greg Kinnear (You've Got Mail), Anna Paquin (Hurlyburly) and most memorably Mark Ruffalo (In The Cut).

On Summer blockbusters and their Oscar potential, "It seems to me that an adequate reward for making a lot of money is having a lot of money."

Well said, Mark Harris.

I wish.. I wish... Wouldn't it be nice if Wes Anderson's movie turns out to be a class act and Angela Lansbury's role is great and she finally gets a much-deserved Best Supporting Actress Oscar?
