David O. Russell to Direct Jennifer Lawrence in 'The Ends of the Earth'
Gary Oldman for Ernest please.
So I guess he has found his muse. I think she's great so good on him. It's cute how Russell speaks so fondly about Lawrence, you can tell how much he admires her during this whole award season.
I like the Oldman suggestion, it would be cool seeing them work together.
He only works with Lawrence now? lol
Something tells me that David o Russel has a hard time finding people actually willing to work with him, so I'm thinking that when he does he likes to hold on to them lol.
Bradley Cooper, Christain Bale and Amy Adams are coming back for more as well.
I don't know if he knows something but Tapley tweeted that he won't be surprised if Affleck becomes involved in this movie (I take it as Ernest).
Not a fan of actor Affileck so I'm hoping he would only come on as a producer.
highly doubtful seeing how his last 2 films combined have 15 oscars noms lol
I was referring to his reputation for being a massive tool lol.
YES!!! Please, make it happen.
so is this gonna be the next big oscar film
david o russel last 2 films have a combined 15 oscar noms and he himself has 3 oscar noms
jennifer is now an oscar winner
and Chris Terrio who wrote Argo is writing this and he just won an oscar too!!!
If you want an Oscar nom or an Oscar work with Russell.
I bet Leo is now calling David O. Russell to be the male lead of this movie.
After seeing their pics together, I kinda want DDL now for Ernest.
I'd kill myself with excitement if DDL and Lawrence were in the same film.
It's a Weinstein drama, it wont matter who directs it, it will get nominated
I would feel the same way if Gary Oldman got the role. His career needs a great role like this so much while DDL has now everything an actor can wish for himself. It makes me so sad when people want the most hyped actors all the time who always get the great roles anyway...
I'm all for Gary who is my fave actor and deserves a role like this
Id have to imagine Leonardo is dying to win a oscar for Best Actor. Thats what he strives for. He also admires and is one of DDL's good friends.
Imagine having coffee with those 2 and talking about cinema.
I'm not saying he doesn't deserve it but I did want someone else to win Best Actor this year, just to have a surprise. DDL said he's going to take some time off and I'm not sure he'd want to do this film anyway. Oldman would be great, he's always great even in bad films.
Jeremy Renner is supposed to be in it, too.
Oh enough DDL now ! He has 3 ! Oscars now ,he can dissapear for a while and give others a chance LOL.He is a brillant actor no doubt but I think Gary Oldman is equally as good if not better IMHO .He doesn´t get the chance to do such movies and this frustrates me to no end .
If someone has the balls to cast him in a good part it works ( Tinker ,Tailor won him a Oscar nom )
Iam all for him as Marland ,Hollywood think outside your box for once ! Thank you !
Gordons ally says it well
I just read the script for this. It's good (of course it is, it's Terrio) but... personally, it still sounds a bit icky even if they're not blood relatives. What I will credit the script with is that it did a good job building up their relationship. I gotta say, Jennifer has some serious backbone for wanting to do it. It's a potential career killer but I guess you can't go wrong if you have Russell and Weinstein backing the movie up. I don't think the Academy will go crazy over this though.
This is also one of those rare times where I thought the reality was better than what's on the script. In reality, Lydie was adopted when she was 16 (and she and Ernest started their relationship after his wife died when she was 28). In the script, she was adopted when she was 5 and raised by Ernest and his wife until they had the relationship when his wife died (she was in her 20s).
She just won an Oscar and has Hunger Games and X-Men, even if she isn't great the role won't kill her career.
That's why I said "potential" and she got on board this project even before she got the buzz for SLP. I'm just saying that I applaud her for picking movies that could potentially go south because of the nature of the material.
