Gwyneth Paltrow Reveals Her ‘Seven’ Inspired Halloween Costume

These days, it’s tough to come up with an original Halloween costume. Over the years, we’ve seen pretty much every movie moment come to life in the form of a creative costume. But Gwyneth Paltrow took to Instagram to show that we haven’t exactly seen everything just yet!

In 1995, Paltrow played a key role in David Fincher’s masterpiece, Seven. Without giving too much away, her character ends up tied to an unforgettable finale which leaves Brad Pitt screaming his famous line, “What’s in the box!?” In true Hitchcockian fashion, Fincher never exactly shows us what’s in the box, instead leaving more than enough context clues for viewers to make the disturbing connection inside of their own heads. read more

Quentin Tarantino Begins Work on Movie about Manson Family Murders

Quentin Tarantino has begun work on his next project! According to THR, he is putting the finishing touches on a script for a movie about the real-life Manson Family Murders. The script focuses on Sharon Tate, the actress and wife of director Roman Polanski who was murdered by the infamous cult in 1969.

As usual, Bob and Harvey Weinstein are involved in the project (likely in producer or executive producer roles), and the group plans on seeking a major studio to co-produce and co-distribute the film (à la the production method used for Inglourious Basterds). THR’s sources state that Brad Pitt and Jennifer Lawrence have already been approached to star in the film. The plan as of now is to begin shooting in the summer of 2018. read more

David Fincher to Direct World War Z Sequel Starring Brad Pitt

Last summer, a rumor began circulating that David Fincher- one of the finest directors of our time- was being wooed by his longtime collaborator, Brad Pitt, into directing a sequel to 2013’s World War Z. Fincher’s aversion to mainstream blockbusters and his highly selective filmmaking process made the rumor seem unlikely at the time, but now it sounds like he is very close to making a deal to direct the film!

Variety reports that the project was put on hold so that Pitt could finalize his divorce from Angelina Jolie, but now Paramount Studio’s CEO, Jim Gianopulos, is eager to greenlight the film within a couple of weeks. Gianopulos has a relationship with Fincher that extends beyond his current role in the studio. They’ve collaborated in the past on Fight Club and Gone Girl. Production is expected to begin during the first quarter of 2018. read more
