Michael Stipe has recruited James Franco and Sam Taylor-Wood to create short films to accompany the highly-anticipated new R.E.M. album, "Collapse Into Now". Franco and Taylor-Wood have signed up to direct clips inspired by different songs on the record for Stipe's "Collapse Into Now Film Project".

The rocker hand-picked both the actor and the "Nowhere Man" director for his latest effort, and admits he gave them "free rein" to do whatever they liked with his tracks. He tells NME.com, "I went to people I really wanted to work with and I could trust them to do whatever they wanted. They had absolute free rein. In many instances I was surprised, in many instances I got what I wanted. What I wanted wasn't primarily important though, what was important was to trust the directors with something as precious as a brand new song."

Oscars Chief Explains Javier Bardem and Josh Brolin's Censored Kiss

March 04, 2011 02:23:39 GMT


An Oscars producer has denied deliberately censoring a kiss between Javier Bardem and Josh Brolin from the Academy Awards telecast. The "No Country for Old Men" co-stars appeared onstage on Sunday, February 27 to present a trophy together, greeting one another by dancing and exchanging a kiss.

Home viewers did not see their embrace as the cameras cut to an extended shot of Bardem's wife Penelope Cruz in the audience - a move which sparked speculation TV bosses wanted to hide the actors' clinch. But Bruce Cohen, one of two producers for the show, is adamant he would have been thrilled to broadcast the smooch, insisting it would have made a "great TV moment". He tells AfterElton.com, "It (the dance and the kiss) was unscripted, and the plan in the (outside broadcast) truck was always to cut to Penelope in the audience applauding Josh's and Javier's introduction, so that is what happened, just as they were starting to dance.
