Brad Pitt To Create Chilean Miner Movie?

Brad Pitt To Create Chilean Miner Movie?

Brad Pitt‘s production company, Plan B Entertainment, is in negotiations to buy the film rights to the rescued Chilean miners’ story.

A lawyer for the miners told a publication in Santiago (via TheWrap) that Plan B has made a multi-million dollar offer and that there’s potential for several of those rescued to be cast.

The lawyer added that there have been an average of ten offers per day to buy the rights to the story, but that the miners want to form a holding company to split profits evenly before they sign with a producer.

UPDATE: A rep for Plan B told EW the reports are a “huge wave of nothing. We have shown potential interest, but there have been no serious discussions.”

    Megamind New York Premiere on 3 Nov 2010 & Zahara with bulldog Jacques
    Source: ET Canada ETHD Extra Access Hollywood



    Do you all remember how FFT had to go to London in the middle of the premiere week for SALT to launch her fragrance because that was the only time Harrod;s could do it (or some such nonsense)? We saw photos in the airports, hotels, out to meals, shopping and the event itself. Right smack dab in the middle of Angie opening SALT.

    Then … BUPKIS!

    What happened to her scent? Why can’t you buy it anywhere? Even Harrod’s is sold out which indicates they got a pretty limited supply to begin with. The only place I can find it is on eBay for exorbitant prices so it is probably speculators who got it from Harrod’s with the intent to re-sell. Even when they had it Harrod’s wouldn’t ship it anywhere but the UK.

    Halle Berry just launched her 3rd and it is for sale everywhere.

    Very odd!

    Very suspicious!!!

    Yeah, I agree that they’re not the best source. It looks like they’re using FOrbes’ numbers. However – they’re NOT going to be off by $947 MILLION. It’s just NOT possible for Chestica to be worth $1 BILLION when she’s had so many failed enterprises the last 6 years.\
    Case in point – the story claimed Chestica’s clothing line was worth over $400 MILLION. How? The line has only been around for 3-4 years and for the first few years it was only sold in Macy’s and a few other stores. Just recently the shoes became available in Dillards, JC Penney’s, Kohl’s a few other chains. I’ve seen them at Marshall’s for up to 60% off. Her clothes don’t sell as well as the shoes. There are long-time brand names that aren’t worth $400MIL, yet we’re supposed to believe that her 3-4 year-old company went from being worth $0 to $400MIL in 3-4 years? In this economy? Puh-leeze. And then – where’s the other $600MIL come from? I’ve already established that it’s not from record or concert sales. In fact, Chestica doesn’t currently have a recording contract and hasn’t since her country album bombed. Before that she didn’t have one either. She’s got an X-mas album coming out on an indie label, ergo, there was no advance on the record. When she was doing the country thing she had to cancel concerts due to lack of sales. Most of the shows she did play were at state and county fairs – especially after she botched the Dolly Parton song on national tv.
    I could go on and, but you get the point – there’s no way in hell Chestica Simpson is worth $1 BILLION, which is $500 MILLION less than Okra, the same as JK Rowling, and more than Martha Stewart, Madge, Celine Dion, Mariah Carey, BritBrit, Xtina, Beyonce, Angie – and even the Friends actors who ALL, not just X, ALL made $100MIL each off of 5 years of Friends residuals? Hellz to the no. Like I said – ET is full of shite. These losers are still insisting that Angie gave birth to the twins in late May 2008. Need I say more?

    Goopy -
    I’m pretty sure O2 told me that Harrods never actually sold Eau de Lonely Ho. They just held the launch. Dang…I can’t remember where she told me it was really sold. Basically it was a test batch and that perfume is DOA – just like her career. I’m shocked…as I’m sure you are, too…

    I am no fan of Juliette Lewis but she is a lot more talented than the Fug who pretends to be everything.

    Juliette Lewis is a scene stealer in “Conviction”

    I agree PT that Jessica S. net worth is far, far away (as in another galaxy far) from the 1 billion mentioned by E! She wouldn’t be as desperate for attention if she’s worth that much.

    Thanks for that info PT – ET is no better than In Touch in TV format nowadays. That said, 53 mil still kicks Manny’s azz…Forbes is a joke.
    Is it just me, or is anyone else loving Fishyth’s hype up the wazoo, as the second coming of Tammy Wynette, if only because it is just one more way Man can be shown up as a do-nothing no-talent. See, Man has dropped Fshyths name on more than one occasion (saying Paltrow was what influenced her wanting to co-direct tat stupid short, posing in Dubai w/ her like they were besties, etc) however my belief is, being the narcissist she is, she’s only willing to associate with Brad’s exes as long as she perceives their careers aren’t going gangbusters…(see Juliette Lewis, see Paltrow before she out-goreed Man’s Ellen warbling) – her fragile ego couldn’t take them being former loves of BP and as popular as her. See how her fakery works? It must kill her to see Fishyth on the CMA’s and on Glee (btw, I’m sure Huvaniston is trying to get Man a glee gig as we speak) – getting noticed for an actual DEMONSTRABLE talent – something Man is not possessed of. Lol Unlike Fugiston most actors, work for what they get( hence fish warbling and dancing like a tasmanian devil)…a hairdo, dropping trou, and coasting on a pity party, won’t cut it.

    For those of you that will sign up on jjb, good luck with that. You have to “apply” to become a member, and the moderators take their dear sweet time getting to it. Most of the time, they never do, or they just don’t accept you. Take your pick.

    They can say goodbye to 75% of their daily visits and hits. Most people that go to that site are not members, just lurkers. Because they make it impossible to be one.

    Btw- We are looking forward to seeing Megamind. I really can’t for The Tourist though.

    Angelina Jolie & Johnny Depp Bonded Over Their Kids

    Hard to believe, but Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp had never met before working on their new film The Tourist. So how did these two superstars break the ice once they had their first face-to-face? No, not by talking about their bank accounts or award collections, but by sharing stories about their kids.

    “We sat there and babbled about our kids, and it was a huge relief,” said Depp, who has two children with singer-actress Vanessa Paradis.

    “I was pleasantly surprised that she has an incredibly perverse sense of humor. She’s a really cool broad,” the actor says of Jolie, who has her own brood of six that she is raising with Brad Pitt.

    Jolie revealed that she was nervous to meet her co-star for the first time, but relaxed when she saw photos of him and Paradis together with their children in Depp’s Hollywood office.

    “As I was waiting, I noticed these beautiful pictures,” she said.

    “He’s an artist, and you feel that in any space he’s in. When he walked in, he was as interesting as I’d hoped he be.”

    New Orleans Lower 9th Ward Coming Back
    The Rev and I were in New Orleans this week for a wedding. While we were there we visited the 9th Ward. This is the part of New Orleans that was virtually wiped out by Katrina in 2005. I’ve written a lot about the flooding in Cedar Rapids so you know I wanted to see how they were coming along in New Orleans. After Katrina, the Rev went on two mission trips to the area to help out and actually had scheduled a third trip when Cedar Rapids got hit. The lessons learned in the south went a long way in making things a little easier in our area so we were very interested in seeing how far New Orleans had come in five years.

    I’m glad to say that we saw much to feel good about. One of the coolest things we learned about is a program called Make It Right. Brad Pitt has been instrumental in getting this initiative up and running. It is fascinating the work they are accomplishing and how they are going about it. Go to their site and check it out. They can tell their story far better than I can.

    Don’t get me wrong, there is still a lot of work to do but you can see that this area is going to return. One concern is bringing back the local businesses. The neighborhood cafes and gas stations. There are no stores on the corners to buy groceries or get a sandwich. The residents are coming back but the shops are lagging. This will be the next step. Let’s pray that the shopkeepers will be able to afford to rebuild as well so that the residents in the lower 9th ward don’t have to drive across town just to pick up a bottle of milk. You need all of that for the community to return.

    High-Def Digest Holiday Gift Guide 2010: Best Action Blu-rays of the Year

    ‘Salt’ was an exciting thrill ride of an action movie with Hollywood’s only bonafide action heroine. Angelina Jolie is the only woman in Hollywood that I believe could throw a punch and really do some damage to a tall muscled Russian henchman. I loved ‘Salt’ from beginning to end, and it even received a four star rating from Roger Ebert. If the negative reviews of pushed you away while it was in theaters, make sure to catch it on Blu-ray. It’s worth it.

    LA’s Museum of Contemporary Art Raises $3 Million

    The Museum of Contemporary Art’s annual benefit has become one of the most spectacular parties in Los Angeles. Last year, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie looked on as Lady Gaga played a pink piano designed by Damien Hirst, with backup from the Bolshoi Ballet. And Saturday’s bash, called The Happening and timed to show off the 146-artist exhibition titled “The Artist’s Museum,” was equally over-the-top.

    Man, these threads are confusing. I am left talking to the whiny hen on another thread. Let the Goopy/Baby Jane/PR bulldog pimping begin. Tis the season to hear Baby Jane whine, Goopy croak and the paid hens extol their limited virtues. You got to be getting paid to go on and and on and on about Baby Jane and Goopy. Two characters with no redeeming qualities. Thank goodness for Mama Angie who is a great humanitarian, Mom , Partner and Actress. AJ walks the talk and is an interesting person to admire. Not those fake blondes with a PR agent with an agenda. Whine on hens. It will be over soon. Just saying.

    I can’t imagine why they’d put such an obstacle in the path of browsers. All they will be doing is losing hits
    and advertising money. Maybe JJB is actually shut down.
    I guess we’ll have to work harder here to keep everyone informed. I know one site that has pictures up before even the best fans LOL!!!!
    Maybe we should take it back. Hee hee.

    I wonder if the hags and hens are going to get on Matt Damon’s case for “going on and on” about his family? There is a story on People’s site and he is talking about how he met his wife, and it is pretty sacchrine (sp). I suppose we will see Lamey making fun of him like she did regarding Angie’s Vogue interview. This is the second time in just months that MD is doing press for a movie, and we get the stories about his family, but I have yet to hear any snark from the trolls.

  • neer

    Every time I see close-up pics of AJ, it’s always the eyes that I am drawn to really look at.
    Very expressive. Even in her films with less speaking scenes, it’s her eyes that do most of the “talking”…and the “loudest”…
    She’s really very good in conveying emotions through her eyes..
    Also, it’s not one-solid color unlike other celebrities
    Hers is green-grayish-smoky set of eyes. Cat-like eyes.

    Jared, a new thread please — Just saw the cover of the Vogue December Supplement of the Best Dressed — Blake Lively has the cover shot but the sidebar lists Michelle Obama, Angelina Jolie, Sarah Jessica Parker, Lady GaGa, Sienna Miller and Jessical Biel as well.


    Ooooooh Diana, come on now….don’t you know everyone ELSE is allowed to talk about their children and spouses, and give personal little tidbits about the homelife when doing press tours EXCEPT FOR Angelina. Didn’t you know? To the dumb azz’d gossips like Lamey who have something to say (thank God I don’t read her to know what that is) – here’s how it works: 1) Angelina’s favorite topic in the whole world is her man and her children. 2)The media’s favorite topic in the world is Angelina and her relationship with Brad and her kids. So this is what we get. It’s not Angelina’s fault. In interview after interview after interview, we have her talking about Brad and the kids, because the media IS ASKING HER. ABOUT. BRAD. AND. THE. KIDS. I don’t mind, I love it. Angie can talk about bathtub Brad, great dad Brad, sexy Brad, all she wants — it tickles me pink, plus I know Maniston is somewhere ripping her weave out in frustration over it so, you know, win-win…I’m happy. :)
    Angie strikes me as the type to not tell anyone HOW to do their job. I think she figures they know their magazine better than she does, if that’s what they want to know, I’ll oblige – it’s my fav topic too.
    Occasionally, you MIGHT get a rare interview that asks her about her trip to Pakistan, or the cholera going on in Haiti, or directing, or writing a screenplay, or a million other topics Angelina could blow their socks off with….

    …but those people are few and far between. So until then, expect more…‘How are the kids?’ and ‘What do you love most about Brad?’ questions.

    idk why they prefer it that way.. that jjb isn’t visible anymore unless you’re members of that site.On m10, I’ve just met a newest poster and she shared 2 beautiful videos. She’s a Filipina, I hope she’s jj poster too so that you can be able to see those vids/ links posted on jjb.
    btw my 2nd post is still on moderation? jj? . anyway it was all about greetings I said: hi to all known regulars here not known haters LOL! oh and I love clicking thumbs up :)

  • JJbetter

    JJB has become too much of a personal journal for some posters and led to a lot of infighting, name calling etc… It started off as a Brad and Angie pix thread but now tons of space is wasted by some regulars posting huge pix of cakes, drinks, clothing, etc.. and posts that have nothing to do with Brad and Angie — comments on car chases, personal car troubles, etc., I stopped going regularly because it just wasn’t worth wading through all that to get to the Brad & Angie pix. Its better to stick with blogs like JJ where you can get the pix without the personal drama. I’m still registered but no plans to drop in again.

    Sad but true. When I applied Guli had to plead my case with Summer. Of course she then turned around and stabbed me in the back, but still… At least they’re no longer named “EZBoard”…cut easy it ain’t…

  • Grandpa freeze

    Yeah, when is botoxic gonna go to haiti ? You know when the Sean Penn movie roles out he and the media will pretend like Sean and Pitt are best friends but he never took the time to check out what his friend is doing in Haiti? He took part in the George clooneys celeb begathon and reports are showing that none of that money has made it to Haiti. Angie didn’t even bother taking part in that begathon cause she knows better. She actually visited and supports SOS village that is actually something worth supporting. Thank u very much

    I hear Angie is going to Bosnia alone ( mr incredble bodyguard will be with her) because botoxic is afraid to go. chicken. Budapest locals says botoxic drives around aimlessly looking for paparazzi and when he spots them he slows down or completely stops so they can get the pix. Typical from the photop king.
