Natalie Portman, Shia LaBeouf, Hayden Christensen, Blake Lively, Kevin Bacon, Ethan Hawke, John Hurt, Julie Christie, Eli Wallach, Cloris Leachman ... It's the very definition of a megawatt cast. But add in our own Robin Wright Penn of "Santa Barbara" and it moves up a notch, for sure!
It's "New York, I Love You," and it's an anthology of 12 short films (five minutes or so each) by 12 filmmakers. Overall directed by Yvan Attal and Allen Hughes, and written by Emmanuel Benbihy and Fatih Akin, the collection of romance stories has been shooting in New York City, of course. It's due out this year.
Our onetime Kelly Capwell is also in good company in "State of Play," classified as in postproduction and due out one year from now. She joins Jason Bateman, Ben Affleck, Russell Crowe, Helen Mirren and Jeff Daniels in the crime drama based on the BBC miniseries.
Entertainment Weekly reports, by the way, that Robin Wright Penn and Sean Penn withdrew their petition for divorce earlier this month.
BRBTV News Blog Blip: We interrupt this coverage of classic TV and the various shows featured in the BRBTV products to bring you an extraneous news blurb: Have you see the new limited-edition Wildly Cherry M&M's? Or the Mint Crisp M&M's for the new "Indiana Jones" movie? What are they trying to do, kill us????? BRB remembers fondly a joke her coworker Jeri at The Saginaw News once made, about the ideal diet being M&M's and Diet Coke. Yea, we're there, girl!!!!!!
