Your point was f*cking garbage and still is. You never replied and asked for me to drop it because you knew you were spewing bullshit. So, remember that point I made in the last draft thread? Yeah...
I actually did reply and didn't continue it because you were getting so flustered and defensive like you are now. It would be so out of character for me to ask you to drop an issue because I was caught in a lie. I hope you resolve whatever issue that fuels this type of passive agressive behavior.
Via PM - Jasi selects the right to adapt Dostoyevsky's The Brothers Karamazov.
He cast's Sean Penn as Dmitri Karamazov and Jeremy Irons as Ivan Karamazov.

In addition, for Ridley Scott, XIX Century Russia will be the perfect setting for the display of his art.
He will perfectly match it with Bertolucci's needs in terms of historicity and - above all - rhythm: Blade Runner is an example of how he can conceive outstanding visual grandeur without giving up poetry - quite the contrary, feeding it.
Vapid is up.

At this point I really don't care who any of the rest of my crew and cast are, I don't have as much of a talent sifting through the best female performers anyways.
Ah to hell with it. I was going to pick someone more established but I'll pick Johnny Greenwood. Of course he's talented and I loved his work on There will be Blood, so I think he will be a fit here even though the music from twbb wouldn't be what I wanted for this new wavey film, but hey greenwood is awesome and he's doing Norwegian Wood something that is closer to what I want out of this movie.
Thanks for pointing him out to me Jasi and Jackass
Marcello Vincenzo Domenico Mastroianni (28 September 1924 – 19 December 1996) was an Italian film actor. His honours have included British Film Academy Awards, Best Actor awards at the Cannes Film Festival and two Golden Globe Awards. He was a famous actor in Italy and all around the world.
In 1945, Mastroianni started working for a film company and began taking acting lessons. His first role was in I Miserabili (1948). He soon became a major international celebrity, starring in Big Deal on Madonna Street; and in Federico Fellini's La dolce vita with Anita Ekberg in 1960, where he played a disillusioned and self-loathing tabloid columnist who spends his days and nights exploring Rome's high society. Mastroianni followed La dolce vita with another signature role, that of a film director who, amidst self-doubt and troubled love affairs, finds himself in a creative block while making a movie in Fellini's 8½. His prominent films include La dolce vita, La Notte, Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow, Marriage Italian-Style, A Special Day, and Ready to Wear, opposite Sophia Loren. Mastroianni and Loren were one of the most successful and enduring screen couples of cinema history, paired up in 14 movies over twenty years.
Mastroianni, Dean Stockwell and Jack Lemmon are the only actors to have been twice awarded the Best Actor at the Cannes Film Festival. Mastroianni won it in 1970 for Dramma della gelosia - tutti i particolari in cronaca and in 1987 for Dark Eyes.
Via PM - Jackass18 selects Edith Head as his Costume Designer.
She's won 8 academy awards, looks like she specialised as a dress designer in Hollywood's golden age. Worked with lots of famous actresses for a lot of classic films. I'll let Jackass18 tell the details.
Dean Tavoularis (born May 18, 1932) is an American motion picture production designer whose work appeared in numerous box office hits such as The Godfather movies, Apocalypse Now, The Brink's Job, One from the Heart and Bonnie and Clyde.
Although born in Lowell, Massachusetts, to Greek immigrant parents, Tavoularis spent his entire childhood and teenage years in Los Angeles, in the shade of the Hollywood studios. He studied architecture and painting at different art schools and landed a job at the Disney Studios first as an 'in-betweener in the animation department, and later as a storyboard artist. In 1967, Arthur Penn called him to take charge of the artistic direction of Bonnie and Clyde. Three years later, Penn called him once again to invent the no-longer-existing Little Big Man. But it was a meeting with Francis Ford Coppola in 1972 on the set of The Godfather that set the creative tone of his career. The Godfather II and The Conversation, in 1974, consolidated their collaboration and laid the way for what was to be their joint creative challenge: Apocalypse Now, the Vietnamese odyssey for which Tavoularis created a nightmare jungle kingdom, inspired by Ankor Wat. It was also on set of Apocalypse Now where he met his future wife, French actress Aurore Clément. (Clément's role was eventually edited out of final cut of the film and only restored in the Apocalypse Now Redux version in 2001.
From 1967 until 2001, he worked on over thirty movies and landed five Academy Award nominations, one of which he won with The Godfather II, and has become a movie magician capable of recreating unexpected landscapes in a studio or in the middle of nowhere. For the 1982 release One from the Heart he recreated both the Las Vegas 'strip' and McCarren International Airport on the sound stages of Zoetrope Studios. The list of directors with whom he has worked is also impressive: Michelangelo Antonioni (Zabriskie Point, 1970), Wim Wenders (Hammett, 1982), Warren Beatty (Bulworth, 1998) and Roman Polanski (The Ninth Gate, 1999). Tavoularis has been able to take his ability to invent magical spaces to unsuspected extremes alongside Francis Ford Coppola.
A bit of housecleaning...
Vapid and LittleMoney. Can you give me a genre for your writers? (Billy Wilder and Wong Kar-wai). I'm assuming for Wong Kar-wai it will just be drama... But, littlemoney, Wilder is mostly (but not entirely) a comedy writer and your film looks geared towards crime. So I didn't want to make assumptions.
And Rizko ... Just look at this guy.
You can just tell he still gets more chop, at 72, than the rest of us combined.
MasterDurant is up with a double pick.
