"There are a lot of us who emotionally would love to do it," Roven confessed. "But it's really Chris' call.

Hit With Opposition, 'Towelhead' Sticks With Its Title

August 27, 2008 07:09:40 GMT


Amidst Muslim leaders' demand of the retitling of "Towelhead", the Warner Independent Pictures' controversial drama stays firm with its chosen title. Rejecting the idea to make some changes in the naming of the film, its director/producer/writer Alan Ball reasoned that the title is important for the movie to be true to its original concept.

Insisting that the title will be kept, Ball shared his point of view on the matter. "As a gay man, I know how it feels to be called hateful names simply because of who I am," he explained. "Therefore, I felt it was important to retain the title of Alicia Erian's novel, in which she so effectively dramatizes the pain inflicted by such language, something many people of non-minority descent never have to face."

'Babylon A.D.' Helmer Called the Movie 'Stupid'


August 27, 2008 05:14:49 GMT


"Babylon A.D." is about to make its debut in the theaters this coming Friday on August 29, but instead of celebrating that fact, its director Mathieu Kassovitz obviously is in the foul mood about his forthcoming action movie. In fact, the French filmmaker hates the project he has been working on for the past five years so bad he even described it as "stupid".

Sharing his resentment towards the Vin Diesel-starrer film to AMC, the "Gothika" director admitted that it fails to deliver any of the messages it should send to the audience. "It's pure violence and stupidity," he said. "The movie is supposed to teach us that the education of our children will mean the future of our planet. All the action scenes had a goal: They were supposed to be driven by either a metaphysical point of view or experience for the characters... instead parts of the movie are like a bad episode of 24."

August 27, 2008 03:44:20 GMT


Prominent Hollywood director Steven Spielberg remains the helmer of the first installment of "Tintin" trilogy despite recent circulating words stating that he would only be involved in the filming indirectly.

Adding further on the denial, the reps noted that the status of Jackson in this movie still stays on the position of a producer and he is still attached to be the director of the second one.
