Joseph Gordon-Levitt Forced To Censor The Porn Of Don Jon's Addiction To Secure R-Rating!

don jon r rating xxx

Well, this is kind of lame!

This whole movie is about addiction to porno! What's the point if there aren't copious amounts of tittays and buttholes inundating our eyeballs as we experience life through its lens?

Unfortunately, for Joseph Gordon-Levitt, it's now his job to reduce the imagery of just that in his directorial debut, Don Jon's Addiction!

That is, if he wants the Sundance smash to qualify for an R rating, and as a direct result, financial backing from distributor Relativity Media!

The actor-turned-actor/director spoke out about the editing process today at the Berlin Film Festival:

MileyBird's So Undercover Picked Up By The Weinsteins!

weinstein-company-buys-rights-to-so-undercover

Oh boy! It's official! That MileyBird will be swooping down into a theater near you, alongside Miz Kelly Osbourne!

The Weinstein Company has reportedly acquired the U.S. distribution rights to the girls' new flick, So Undercover, with a planned release for October!

As we've reported, the film will focus on a girl hired by the FBI to infiltrate a college sorority, in order to protect the daughter of a mobster.

Sounds like the kind of light-hearted fare we think that Miley does best! And let's face it, she has a built-in audience that will secure a pretty nice payday, regardless of whether it's any good or not!

But our fingers are crossed that it will be!

What do U think?? Do U want to see So Undercover??

Kevin Smith Is Bringing Red State To Europe!

Filed under: Film FlickersBusiness Blitz

kevin-smith-is-bringing-red-state-to-europe

Wow! He's pretty serious about doing his own thing with this one - and we really respect him for it!

After controversially buying the rights to distribute his new film, Red State, himself, Kevin Smith is now planning to push the sale of the director's foray into the horror genre onto foreign buyers!

He reportedly introduced a private screening to the European Film Market Thursday, and announced plans to expand upon what he's doing in the US - taking the movie around the country to select cities with Q&A appearances before its nationwide October 19th release - in countries worldwide!

He explained to potential buyers:

“(If) you guys pick it up, I will work with you. I can come over, we set up five or six key places, boom, sell those houses out, start people talking. Just fly me over. But case in point, I might not be allowed to fly on the plane sometimes, so you might have to boat me over. In the beginning, I was all heart and passion. These are made by someone who says I will kill or die to get a movie made. And after 10 years, I got pretty complacent and just made movies like other people would make. I used to make shit that nobody could make but me. I figure if I’m going out, I want to go out really fuckin’ strong. What you’re going to see is all passion and heart. Everything I put into this I put into the early flicks. I came back with a vengeance and put this together.”

Wow! Like we said earlier, this is a pretty ballsy move on his part!

But it seems as though he's really passionate about the project, so we hope his plan works out for him! And we imagine it will, if he's right about the quality of the movie!

We'd love to see Kevin Smith back to form with this one! It sounds as though it has a lot of potential!

Best of luck!

Thoughts??

Watch Out, Studios! AMC and Regal To Acquire And Distribute Movies

Filed under: Film FlickersBusiness Blitz

amc and regal to distribute and acquire films

Independent filmmakers, rejoice! Looks like you've just gotten two new, powerful allies.

AMC and Regal are working with Lions Gate/Weinstein Company exec Tom Ortenberg on a new venture that would allow the theater chains to acquire distribution rights to indie films.

They'd still have the option to bring their films to other theater chains and home video markets, but they'd obvi get first dibs on the films.

And no, this doesn't mean that AMC and Regal will ONLY show their movies, but it def means that we might be seeing more indie films get some theatrical love in the near future!

We certainly support any business venture that supports independent film, so we're thinking this could def be a positive thing!

What do U think?
