Angelina has reportedly signed on to portray crime novelist Patricia Cornwell‘s heroine Dr. Kay Scarpetta in a forthcoming movie, EW reports. The film will not be a direct adaptation of a particular novel in the 16-book series, but may combine elements from multiple books.

    Tarantino back in Cannes with Almodovar, Campion

    PARIS (Reuters) – Quentin Tarantino returns to Cannes as part of a group of familiar faces at the world’s biggest film festival that includes Pedro Almodovar, Ken Loach and New Zealand’s Jane Campion.

    Tarantino, who won the Palme d’Or for “Pulp Fiction” in 1994, presents his long-awaited World War Two caper “Inglourious ********” starring Brad Pitt in the main competition line-up, festival director Thierry Fremaux said on Thursday.

    He will be up against previous Cannes winners including Ken Loach, who presents “Looking for Eric” about former France and Manchester United soccer star Eric Cantona and Campion, who is showing “Bright Star” about the 19th century English poet John Keats.

    Spanish director Almodovar, who has not won the top prize yet, brings an emotional drama called “Broken Embraces.”

    The 62nd edition of the festival runs from May 13-24.

    Eli Roth Spills Gory Details Of Tarantino’s ‘Inglourious ********’
    ‘It’s really the greatest of Quentin’s talents, all culminating in this film,’ Roth says of his acting debut

    ANTA MONICA, California — When Quentin Tarantino and Eli Roth join forces, there are three things you can safely assume about the resulting movie: It will have a wicked sense of humor, be drenched in blood and sure as hell won’t be boring. These days, the “Hostel” and “Grindhouse” collaborators are putting the final touches on “Inglourious ********,” a feverishly anticipated August release that has the duo swinging for the fences.

    “Celebrity is good for about three things: Sometimes getting out of a ticket, if a trooper likes your work, and in upstate New York they don’t even know who I am,” he said, drawing laughter from the developers and government officials who gathered with him Wednesday in Gentilly.

    “The other thing is getting a nice table at K-Paul’s or Emeril’s. And the third thing is for either business causes or celebrity causes,” he said. “You cannot discount the work that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt do for people in the world. And I’m happy to throw my waning days of celebrity behind . . . the organization to bring housing back to first responders and to entice people to come back to this city and make a positive contribution to its recovery.”

    To be sure, Pitt lent considerably more fame and financial support to the Make It Right Foundation’s efforts to rebuild the ravaged Lower 9th Ward. But self-deprecating jokes aside, Aykroyd’s seed money and fundraising efforts have been key to a police support group called the Blue Line Foundation.

    After an open bid process, the New Orleans Redevelopment Authority selected the Blue Line Foundation and its partner, Coastal Green Development LLC of Alabama, to buy 21 storm-damaged properties near Dillard University.

    Aykroyd isn’t the only screen star working with NORA on redeveloping such properties. Actor Wendell Pierce, a native of nearby Pontchartrain Park and a star of the planned HBO series “Treme,” was part of the first group of developers to buy lots from NORA.

    Changes may be made to film tax credit program

    NEW ORLEANS — How much is it worth to keep the TV and movie industry humming in Louisiana?

    AP/File/Gabriel Bouys

    Actors Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt arrive for the Los Angeles premiere of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, December 8, 2008, in Westwood, California. The movie was partially filmed in Louisiana.

    Lawmakers will tackle that question as they decide whether to keep or expand incentives designed to make Louisiana competitive as an alternative to Hollywood.

    If the Legislature takes no action in its session opening Monday, the current 25 percent tax credit for movie and TV show makers will drop to 20 percent next year and 15 percent in 2012. That’s a scenario those heavily invested in the industry say would be disastrous.

    “If it’s reduced, it will kill the film industry in this state,” said Daniel Forman, president of a new multimillion-dollar studio in Harahan. He said he’s counting on the state to keep the incentive at 25 percent or raise it to compete with states such as Georgia, which has bumped its incentive to 30 percent.

    Gov. Bobby Jindal has said he will support legislation to keep the tax credit at 25 percent through 2012. Several legislators have prefiled bills to do so.

    So far, there appears to be no opposition to keeping the 25 percent credit. But a move to raise it might get an icier reception, said Greg Albrecht, chief economist for legislative fiscal office.

    Festival de Cannes unveils lineup
    Official selection boasts anticipated titles and surprises

    By Rebecca Leffler

    April 23, 2009, 06:10 AM ET

    Inglourious ********
    PARIS — Festival de Cannes organizers have invited old friends to this year’s event with Ang Lee, Pedro Almodovar, Quentin Tarantino, Johnny To, Jane Campion, Lars Von Trier and Terry Gilliam among the regulars bringing premieres.

    Festival de Cannes toppers Gilles Jacob and Thierry Fremaux ended weeks of speculation at a press conference in Paris Thursday unveiling the official selection.

    Fremaux confirmed the much buzzed about selection of Tarantino’s “Inglourious ********,” about a group of American soldiers fighting Nazis in World War II, which will bring Brad Pitt back to the Cannes red carpet. Tarantino won the Palme d’or in 1994 for “Pulp Fiction.”

    Fellow Palme d’Or winner Von Trier will also bring horror drama “Antichrist,” which stars Willem Dafoe and Charlotte Gainsbourg as a couple who retreat to an isolated cabin deep in the forest after their son dies.

    Campion, also a returning Palme d’Or winner, comes with literary biopic “Bright Star,” featuring Ben Wishaw and Abbie Cornish in the U.K. title about 19th-century poet John Keats and his love affair with Fanny Brawne.

    And Cannes regular Pedro Almodovar will screen his melodrama “Abrazos Rotos” (Broken Embraces), starring Penelope Cruz, in Competition.

    Lee’s “Taking Woodstock” made the lineups after a last-minute screening locked the film into Fremaux’s choice. Set against the backdrop of the famed 1969 music event, Lee’s picture stars Liev Schreiber, Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Emile Hirsch.

    Gilliam’s “The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus,” featuring Heath Ledger in his final performance before his untimely death, will screen Out of Competition. Johnny Depp, Colin Farrell and Jude Law complete the cast.

    More recent Palme d’Or recipient Ken Loach will appear once again in Cannes with “Looking for Eric,” about a troubled young soccer fan and Gallic soccer sensation Eric Cantona. The film will vie for the Palme d’Or against Johnny To’s French-made “Vengeance” starring pop sensation Johnny Hallyday as a hitman out to avenge his daughter’s death.

    Palestinian director Elia Suleiman will premiere “The Time That Remains,” a family saga spanning the 1940s to today.

    Belgian director Jaco von Dormael will be in town with his sci-fi fantasy tale “Mr. Nobody,” with Diane Kruger and Jared Leto.

    Michael Haneke will head to Cannes with his black-and-white drama “The White Ribbon,” about fascism in a German school in 1913.

    Malaysian auteur Tsai Ming-liang ’s French-financed “Face,” about a Taiwanese director arrived in Paris to make a film about Salome, starring Mathieu Amalric, Jeanne Moreau, Fanny Ardant, Nathalie Baye, Laetitia Casta and Jean-Pierre Leaud.

    This year, 52 feature films from 32 different countries will be screened, 46 of which are world premieres. 20 films will screen In Competition.

    In the Festival de Cannes’ native French tongue will be Alain Resnais ‘ “Les Herbes folles,” Jacques Audiard ’s “A Prophet,” and Xavier Giannoli ’s “In the Beginning,” with Emmanuelle Devos, Francois Cluzet and Gerard Depardieu.

    U.K. director Andrea Arnold will present her second big screen outing “Fish Tank.”

    The Festival will close with Jan Kounen’s Coco Chanel biopic “Coco Chanel and Igor Stravinsky.” The Festival de Cannes runs May 13- 24.

    Angelina Jolie is the only beautiful woman Brad has ever dated. How lucky can one man be. After dating nothing but ugly actresses, he finally got it right. Jennifer Aniston, Gwyneth Paltrow and Juliette Lewis are all ugly. Maybe the trolls would have been happy if Brad had found another ugly actress. So they could say Jennifer looked better. Instead of the most beautiful woman in the world. We all know JA can not compete with Angelina in looks or talent. Not even in the bedroom.

  • Debra Grier

    This is great while the rest of the world struggles the rich party and fly.

    Right, and some stupid rich sticom actress spends $50k on her hair which could feed people or build school.

  • Debra77

    Brad looks great. Love that people refer to them as Married. but as Brad said.. It’s all the same…

    If you don’t like him fine. Why post here.

    Have a great day JP fans..

  • anon

    Yeah a new thread. I thought that Brad got his license already. Anyhoo…He’s looking good.

  • a total fan

    To # 30

    You really don’t expect them to give 100% of their earnings to charity do you? They give and what is left is theirs to do as they please and if flying is what they please then good for them.

  • great couple

    If you really know what a marriage is, and not just some piece of paper, then yes, they are married and much more so than he ever was to that TV actress.

    Tim Robbins calls Susan Sarandon his wife. No one goes into a tizzy over it, because after being together all this time and raising a family together, they are more married than those sticking together because they have a legal paper.

    To fly, you have to keep up regular training hours. You don’t just get a license and that’s it, like driving a car. Glad he’s having fun and being able to keep his hours up while Angie’s working.

    # 39 anon @ 04/23/2009 at 9:46 am Yeah a new thread. I thought that Brad got his license already. Anyhoo…He’s looking good.

    Private pilots must revalidate their pilot certificates every 24 months by undertaking a flight review with a certificated flight instructor.

    Thank you QQQQ for bringing over BDJ articles.

  • brange fan from greece

    I totally agree that Angie is the most beautiful woman Brad ever dated. Jen is cute but not beautiful and Gwyneth is plain.I dont really see anything attractive in her.Angie is way way more beautiful than them.

  • kellie

  • great couple

    #40 Some people are just bitter that others have money they don’t. Or looks they don’t have, or a great job they don’t have, or love they don’t have……
    It’s easier to attack those that obviously have it better — celebrities — than to get some self-esteem and motivation to fix what they don’t like about themselves.

  • soopx

    Thanks Jared !! I just stopped by for a second to look at Brad’s new thread.Hello Jolie-Pitts Fans,Wishing all of you a good day.Nice seeing Brad out and about.He is always so easy on the eyes.You
    just can’t help but love this good man and the Gorgeous Angelina
    and their Beautiful children.Bye JPs, Peace and Love to all of you for holding the Fort down.

  • snowy

    yayy! Angie got him into flying.
    i bet he’s very excited. :)

  • Frenchy

    Good morning all. Seeing Brad checking out this plane is kind like deja vu. I remember one time the news had footage of him landing his plane somewhere them he promptly got on his motorcycle and took off!!!! Gosh remember Angelina flying while she was pregnant with Shiloh?

    That last thread was something else wasn’t it? Thanks for all the links and articles.

    So that person who kept posting that Brad & Angelina were married must have gotten in JJ’s ear :) It’s no big deal.

    Enjoy the day everyone especially my fellow NYC’ers. We had a lousy Earth day yesterday. Make it a good one today.

    Later (much, much)

  • brange fan from greece

    Haters leave this family alone.They are wonderful people and have done so many good things in this world. God will forever bless them bacause they have a good heart.
