Filed under: Film Flickers

women-in-film-numbers-decreasing-web.jpg

In Hollywood's biggest features of 2011, women barely had a voice.

Only five percent of 2011 blockbusters were directed by women, down from seven percent in 2010.

The numbers are abysmal in other areas too.

Out of the top 250 grossing films,

Brad Pitt As A Director?! Not A Chance In Hell

brad-pitt-does-not-want-to-direct-web.jpg

Despite his Ocean's Eleven friends running around and playing with cameras, Brad Pitt does not care for directing.

When asked if he would ever venture behind the cam like wifey Angelina, Brad responding with an emphatic, "Hell no!"

While bestest buds George, Ben, and Matt are becoming helmers (and really good helmers at that) Brad is perfectly ok with acting and producing.

He became the 500th member of the Producer's Guild (What an awesome number!) and his work with Moneyball shows off his producing skills.

Look out for his next project, World War Z!

Brad Pitt Joins The Cast Of Slavery Movie

Filed under: Brad PittFilm Flickers

Brad Pitt Oscar

Brad Pitt may have an excuse to start using his Inglorious Bastards accent again.

The Oscar-nominated actor has joined the cast of Twelve Times A Slave. The film, based on a true story, follows a free black man in the 1850's who was tricked and lured into slavery.

Pitt will star alongside actor's Michael Fassbender and Chiwetel Ejiofor in the Steve McQueen directed Oscar bait film. Although you probably can't pronounce Chiwetel's name, you'll easily be able to recognize him from films like Four Brothers, American Gangster and Salt.

If Pitt doesn't win an Academy Award this year for Moneyball, it sounds like he already has a good chance of winning one next year!

Coldplay Becomes Movie Producer

Coldplay producing feature film

As if conquering the music industry after becoming one of the worlds most successful bands wasn't enough, Coldplay is getting in on the film industry as well.

The band is producing a contemporary noir film called Ashes starring Ray Winstone, Jim Sturgess, Lesley Manville, Jodie Whittaker, and Luke Evans.

Not a bad cast at all, but where's Gwyneth Paltrow? C'mon, Chris!

We kid, we kid. With all of her success this past year, we're sure she's booked solid for the next two.

This could be inneresting.

Are U excited to check out Coldplay's first movie?

Although she's in the midst of a divorce, Eva Longoria's UnbeliEVAble Entertainment is unstoppable. The production company is developing projects at ABC and Starz.

Eva, along with Cold Case alum Kathryn Morris, will executive produce Sendera, an hourlong that follows two wealthy familes (one from Mexico, the other from Texas) as they engage in a power struggle.

She is also behind the single-camera comedy Parenting by Committee, which centers around four single best friends who are raising a child together.

For Starz, Eva is working on Aztecs, an eight-hour miniseries about the historic romantic relationship between Spanish conqueror Hernan Cortes and his interpreter, Malinalli.

Wowsa! Glad she's staying busy!

Leo To Pay Homage To JFK

Filed under: Leonardo DiCaprio

Nothing but serious work for Jack Dawson Arnie Grape Leonardo DiCaprio.

Leo is set to star and producer a new film based on the assassination of President John F. Kennedy called Legacy of Secrecy. Though Leo won't be stepping into the iconic presidential role, he's slated to play play FBI informant Jack Van Laningham, the man that Mafia godfather Carlos Marcello supposedly confessed to about ordering the hit on JFK.

Good angle! There's been so many movies about the subject of JFK's murder, but focusing on Jack instead of John could be very interesting.

We're intrigued! Are U?

Good for him! It sounds like it might be good.

Private Practice star Taye Diggs has just had a project picked up by his bosses at ABC. Taye has created show based on the "complex world of adoption." The show, called Matched, focuses on the lawyers, doctors and caseworkers who make the process happen and how it takes its toll on their own lives.

No word if Taye plans on starring in the show, but he will be producing.

Perhaps this would be a great time to get his wife into the game!

Idina, you game?
