Daniel Craig & Rachel Weisz: 'Dream House' First Look!

Check out this first look shot of Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz together in their upcoming film Dream House!

Synopsis: A couple (Craig and Weisz) relocates their family to a quaint New England town. But as they settle into their new life, they discover their perfect home was the murder scene of a mother and her children. And the entire city believes it was at the hands of the husband who survived. When Will investigates the tragedy, his only lead comes from Ann Paterson (Naomi Watts), a neighbor who was close to the family that died. As Will and Ann piece together the disturbing puzzle, they discover that the story of the last man to leave Will’s dream house will be just as horrifying to the one who came next.

Dream House is set to hit theaters on September 30th!

    I wonder what went wrong between Daniel and Satsuki. He professed his undying love to her and all of a sudden Rachel comes into the picture. Hey, what can I say…true love wasn’t that true after all for Daniel. I suppose Daniel and Rachel make a better pair,both British, both actors and both left their significant other to be with each other, way to go!

    Who should be the next Bond villain?

    Now that the next James Bond movie is back in action — with a November 2012 release date, and with Daniel Craig cast once again as super suave secret agent 007 — we have just one question: Who should play the next Bond baddie? Rumors have been swirling since even before the 23rd Bond film was put on hold last April (thanks to money problems at MGM) that Rachel Weisz was up for the part. That would be cozy casting, considering she’s rumored to be Craig’s girlfriend. There’s also been long-whispered rumors that Michael Sheen was being courted by the Bond producers. Both are interesting choices to play successors to the likes of Gert Fröbe and Donald Pleasence, but I’ve always felt that the best Bond villains always loom much larger on the screen, both physically and theatrically — and are usually bald. Whose head would we want to shave for the part? Maybe Christoph Waltz’s? His villainous Nazi in Inglourious ******** pretty much stole that film. Or, if it had to be an Englishman, how about Ricky Gervais’? After his performance at the Golden Globes, he’s certainly proven he can do evil. We have no idea if he can act, but WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has both the looks and the name for the part. Or how about Alec Baldwin? He’s quite capable of going over the top.

    What about you, Pop Watchers? What actor do you most want to see with a white cat in his or her lap?

    First Look At Jim Sheridan’s ‘Dream House’ Starring Daniel Craig & Rachel Weisz

    Originally set to come our next month, Jim Sheridan‘s “Dream House” ran into some scheduling issues when the film’s star, Daniel Craig, found his calendar filled up quickly with “Cowboys & Aliens” and “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo,” making scheduling reshoots a tricky proposition. Well, they managed to squeeze some time in last month and with a fresh fall date now planned, Universal has plenty of time to build up to the release of the film.

    Starring Rachel Weisz, Naomi Watts along with Daniel Craig, “Dream House” follows the story of a successful New York publisher (Craig) who moves his wife (Weisz) and children to a New England town, where they buy the home of their dreams. That dream, however, is shattered when they learn that the previous tenants were murdered, leading the husband to team with a neighbor (Watts) to learn the truth about the crime. Sounds pretty routine, but the first look at the movie is actually pretty enticing and a little creepy. We dig it. We just hope the script by David Loucka—best known for ancient pics like the Michael Keaton comedy “The Dream Team” and the Whoopi Goldberg basketball movie “Eddie”—is worth a damn. But this cast is pretty first rate and we’ll watch ‘em in anything.

    “Dream House” will aim to provide some thrills when it opens on September 30th.

    Ellen Says:

    they have two daughters, right?
    It’s been over a year since we’ve heard anything about Dream House, the forthcoming psychological thriller from director Jim Sheridan (Brothers). But now we have our first still from the film featuring Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz looking very uneasy at a little girl in the foreground. Since they look rather terrified, I’m guessing this girl isn’t their daughter and is one of the spirits left behind in their new home where a grisly murder took place previously. While Brothers resulted in some decent performances, the film felt somewhat incomplete, so maybe Sheridan can step his game up for a decent thriller this year.

    Keri Says:

    First up is the first look at Jim Sheridan’s Dream House starring Daniel Craig, Rachel Weisz and Naomi Watts. Among other things, this film is likely to become tabloid fodder the closer we get to the September 30 release date as it’s been reported an affair between Craig and Weisz was the cause for the latter’s split with Black Swan director Darren Aronofsky. Pushing that aside, the film is a thriller about a family that unknowingly moves into a home where several grisly murders were committed… only to find themselves the killer’s next target. Adding to that>>IT DEFINITELY WON’T WORK OUT…..and Darren Aronofsky will most definitely have the last laugh. Daniel isn’t even half the man….i hope this movie sucks just like their relationship will. watch after this movie comes out it will be over>>>what a terrible rebound for rachel to choose, oh well her lesson to learn

  51. 51
    to Keri Says:

    Libby, you have persecution complex. same words, broken record…

  52. 52
    Bad Choices Says:

    you know what is so alarming about both daniel and rachel’s relationship….is that they both really are people who can’t commit to one person…it’s as if they become very unsetteled….they might after a while with each other. When i saw rachel with darren i always thought wow she’s finally feels grounded with someone that she’ll be with forever, especially when she voiced out that exact thing. But apparently not…back in the 90′s and early 00′s she used to go from one relationship to another as if it were nothing….it was a shame then and is a total shock now that she has done this with daniel. Speaking of him, he can’t be commited to any women for very long…..HE CAN’T BE TAMED….lol. So yeah will have to wait and see but this is hollywood and when hook ups happen like this they don’t last long at all. What a shame.

    Thanks for the link. This bit was very interesting:

    “Well, they managed to squeeze some time in last month and with a fresh fall date now planned, Universal has plenty of time to build up to the release of the film.”

    Sounds like they did their reshots then. There were rumours that because of scheduling problems, Dan and Rachel couldn’t do the reshots until March of this year.

    to Ellen

    “they have two daughters, right?”

    I think so – and I guess that the girl in the door is the older one, having seen something scary…

LOOKS LIKE YOUR THE ONE RUNNING AROUND WITH PSYCOSIS, since the reality that this relationship won’t last hasn’t hit you yet. i’M GONNA STICK UP FOR BAD CHOICES HERE cause there is absolutely no reason for you to attack someone that way.

    Are all one in the same. This is the same person who tried to convince people that DC’s ex was traveling with her mother and that is why there were no pic’s of her, sad deluded fool that she is. Can’t accept the fact that Daniel dumped his gf for someone else . She really deserves pity more than anything else sad pathetic creature. Sitting at her computer writing hateful post soooo jealous she wont be a hand maiden to that homely ex of Daniels. GO BACK TO DTD, there I’m sure you will find people who share your rather pathetic view of Daniel and Rachel.

    low life actor @ 0 1/28/2011 at 9:33 pm

    wake up! relationships end; this is a fact of life. Rachel and Darren had been having problems months before the break up was publicly announced; all their friends knew it was coming. they were not married. the same is also true for Daniel and Satsuki. although their breakup was announced in February 2010 it had actually taken place weeks prior to that. why do you think Daniel bought that condo in NYC; it was a pay off to Satsuki. it’s all over and done with. Daniel and Rachel are a couple now. get used to it!! now why don’t you go back to you friends at DTD where i’m sure they are still convinced it’s not all true.

  74. 74
    GAVIN Says:

    To second that. Wasn’t dan in nyc last year for some play with hugh jackman? Is there a possibility that that is why the condo was bought? I don’t really buy that it was a pay off to sats.

  75. 75
    GAVIN Says:

    And by the way, if what you are saying is actually true that it was a payoff to Satsuki then he, to me at least, is a jack***. You don’t just do someone like that. Really messed up…..being a fan of rachel’s I hope he doesn’t dog her like that.

    sorry to break this to you but the condo is listed under Satsuki’s name. she is the owner of record. as for the gay innuendo, that story was long ago proven to be false. Daniel is now with Rachel.

  78. 78
    to GAVIN Says:

    Do you hope Daniel gives Satsuki nothing? OK, that’s just fine with me! LOL

  79. 79
    to Gavin Says:

    you do know that Satsuki lived with Daniel for 5 years. that is what is called a domestic partnership. which means that in the state of New York Satsuki was entitled to an equitable distribution of monies Daniel made while they were together. so how exactly did Daniel mess up by buying Satsuki that condo? she didn’t only get the condo, i have no doubt that she also got a pretty hefty cash settlement. this kind of thing goes on all the time.

  80. 80
    greedy miser Says:

    Satsuki wanted more money. Ohhhhh, what Daniel had done with the best of intentions turned out to be harmful. Poor Dan…..

  81. 81
    GAVIN Says:

    Okay, I’ll accept it that way, but second that, if this is you or not, presented this information like daniel was obligated, no “pressed” to give Satsuki something in order to move on so that he wouldn’t feel guilty for leaving her and/or as a way to slap her in the face by giving her the condo to say “okay we’re over, so take this and leave me alone”. That’s why I said that. I still feel the way I feel for rachel though. Question for conversation, what would you say if Rachel and Daniel did have an affair and the scenario is that both sats and darren were innocent and got hurt. How does anyone of you feel about the possibility of that? That is to say if you all pushed the “Facts” aside….what do you all think? I think it’s a hollywood thing as I previously said but share please….I think it makes interesting conversation. How far could actors go?

  82. 82
    greedy miser Says:

    No wonder Sats is not going to work for her living herself. To put it briefly, she has no ability to speak of.

  86. 86
    to GAVIN Says:

    if Rachel and Daniel did have an affair and the scenario is that both sats and darren were innocent and got hurt.
    crap! your interpretation of this matter is too one-sided. we cannot learn the truth unless we hear what both parties have to say. sats and darren were innocent and got hurt? ha!! what was the basis for your delusions? there’s no evidence to back that claim. to theorize in advance of the facts biases one’s judgment. stop your illiberally biased way of thinking!!

  87. 87
    GAVIN Says:

    I said “what would you say “IF” which I believe is the key word…..I never at any point suggested that there was evidence of it , SECOND THAT, it was a What if question…because I don’t actually know.

    Cassy Says:

    In consideration to your responses, What if we are all wrong? I mean none of us were there so how can we be sure? How can we be sure that rachel left her partner for daniel and vice versa. How can we be sure if they waited to end their relationships?How can we be sure there relationships had already ended before they were in this one? We’re not. We could all be wrong about this. ALL of us. People who believe that rachel and dan hooked up after the respective breakups with their spouses could be wrong. And people who believe that they cheated could be wrong. My point even though we feel the way we feel about this, it really doesn’t matter because we weren’t there when these four people broke up, we can’t be sure. I think it’s a hookup that may or may not last based on certain trends. I could be wrong….I freely admit that, but all of you can be just as wrong. We come here to share our opinions…let’s come here with an open mind that our assumptions about a situation could be wrong, even these so called “facts” that we try to back them up with could be wrong. So in sharing that, can we please stop this bickering on who is right, who’s wrong, share our opinions, and just admire the post that my baby (lol) Jared posted. Cause seriously I am so done with reading all this bickering crap.So not Even necessary. Love ya guys.

  97. 97

    Since we are sharing thoughts on this whole scenario, let me suggest this. Maybe this is all a pr stunt, maybe Daniel needed someone to help squash the gay rumor so they enlisted Rachel to help. Her career has not been going that well ,her last movie, “The Lovely Bones” didn’t do that well at the box office. She needed to generate some more interest in her career. Daniel ditched his beard and got caught making out with some dude at gay bar, maybe the producers of Bond, suggested he get involved in a high profile (faux) romance. If anyone cares to notice the gay rumors disappeared. They certainly didn’t want reporters at press junkets and red carpet premiers asking him about that night in Venice. And what better way to sell a movie (Dream House) that may have serious production problems. Both movies (Bond and Dream House) would benefit tremendously , not that Bond needs any real pr help. But imagine this, what if, Rachel Weisz is in the next Bond movie, can you imagine the buzz and the and the media attention?, the press would go crazy, not to mention fans. Box office receipts would probably break all records. Bond 23, would go down in history as the biggest and the most profitable Bond in history.
    Please people , don’t lose your

    You are WRONG again and you keep repeating false, inaccurate misleading statements, citing them as facts of New York Law, which they are not. You have no idea what you are talking about!
    The ex was Paid Off, To Get Lost, pure and simple.
    There is NO such law in New York State for ANY equitable distribution of monies after ‘ living together’ for only 5 years. They were not married, and they DID NOT LIVE TOGETHER for 5 years in NEW YORK STATE! The ex (or any live-in gf for that matter) gets nothing after living together for only 5 years and moreover, New York Sate does not have any legal jurisdiction in this situation with Daniel and the ex . New York was not their place of residence. They did not live here for any amount of time, just visited here. They lived mostly in the UK/London.
    New York law does not apply in Daniel’s pay-off situation with the ex. And it well could have been the end of her contract, (therefore, the pay-off) as others have stated.

With that statement I wasn’t talking about the probability of just this rachel and daniel situation…..I also was suggesting all actors. And I never said if I thought my scenario was true or not.

    Your thought is completely illogical because your logic is based on wrong information. The rumor that Rachel has negotiated with the Bond producers came out from the Sun. You have believed it. But at the same time, the Sun reported; ”An insider said: But the fly in the ointment is that they are now dating” Get it? Do you know what i mean? The producers are dissatisfied with relationship between Daniel and Rachel. It means they never made up their relationship. And then the Gossip Cop denied the rumor. “There is no truth” Yes, Rachel has not negotiated with the producers, and she does not want to play a Bond girl for her carrier. Rachel isn’t using Daniel for her own
    convenience. There’s no logic in your argument, so your logic is inconsistent in many places. There is a leap of logic in what you says.

    I want add Rachel was always an arthouse/independent actress with exceptations like “the mummy 1 + 2″ and “constantine”. Her career shows that she doesn’t need Daniel to be successful. Her movies were rarely box office hits because of the genre.

    @to 79 Wrong Again LOL!:


    Under British and Commonwealth countries Family law and property settlement, if a couple have been together for over 12 months (even if married it remains the same, regardless of who left who) and one has given up working to support the other, then on a breakup, the one whose not working is entitled to 50% of the others financial earnings, and if so it is all recorded and therefore made public. So I am assuming Daniel must have had to have given a VERY GOOD payout in order to avoid this happening, the publicity/scandal from it could well have ruined his career.

    So wait, does she have a date with Daniel Craig, then?
    “There are a few offers on the table, but I definitely want to make the right decision for the right part.”
    That doesn’t mean Kim isn’t considering other gigs. “I love acting,” she said. “It’s challenging for me, and I love it.”
    Now I wanna hear from you. Kim Kardashian as a Bond Girl? Sound off below!
    Hi, Guinness
    I helped my friend to move last weekend. Please don’t move in driving snow if you don’t want to lose a friend. lol
    As for Bond villain, Gossip cop isn’t a source of information. They just reprinted the Deadline article, and they have not confirmed to his rep yet. But you know, Deadline is considered to be the most reliable source of information. Babs/Michael seem to hope for man with rather too strong a personality as opposite of Daniel. Sounds great.
    It’s really exciting and I hope he accepts it, but he also offered big role in The Dark Tower… Yeah, Roland Deschain!! Well, Guinness, you might be not a little disappointed.

    Daniel Craig And Rachel Weisz To Appear In Film About Hungarian Show Trials?

    Total Recall and Rambo producer Andy Vajna is preparing a Czech-filmed picture about the Communist show trials of Hungary. The film will apparently focus on the execution of Hungarian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Laszlo Rajk in 1949. According to Budapest Life, Daniel Craig will be appearing as the executioner who killed Rajk, alongside his Dream House co-star Rachel Weisz in an as-yet unspecified role. Production is set to begin in March.

    While no more details are given, I’d assume that the film will be in the English language and… nope. That’s it. Everything else would be a blind guess.

    The fate of Rajk was previously dramatised in Istvan Szabo’s Sunshine, though it was a very fictionalised account with names and details changed significantly.
    May God prosper her!
    New glow on Aussie star radar

    FROM screen testing with British hearthrob Daniel Craig to shooting an action sequence in an upside down car, meet Confidential’s Class of 2011 – the latest line of fresh-faced celebs to hit our radar this year.

    Speaking of scary, indie actress Sarah Snook recently found herself in the “unusual situation” of going up against the creme-de-la-creme of Hollywood for the titular role in Girl With A Dragon Tattoo opposite Craig.

    “It was pretty mad – I would walk past someone really famous in the hall and be like ‘Hey, you’re in the same outfit as I am,” she laughed.

    “[Craig] was a really nice guy, very calm and very aware it was an unusual experience … doing the same scene over and over with so many different people.”

    The part was eventually given to little-known Social Network star Rooney Mara, who beat out Snook, Scarlett Johanssen and Carey Mulligan.

    Javier Bardem Offered Big Bond #23 Role; MGM Leveraging 007 Distribution With Co-Financing Deal To Improve Its Cash Flow: Jockeying Studios “Increasingly Frustrated”

    EXCLUSIVE: Deadline has just learned that Javier Bardem has been offered a starring role in the upcoming James Bond film recently set for a November 9, 2012, release. Details about the character are being kept under wraps for now. But traditionally the biggest male role opposite 007 is the villain, and Bardem played a truly villainous villain in his Oscar-winning turn in No Country For Old Men two years ago. The EON Productions offer by principals Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli to Bardem to join star Daniel Craig and director Sam Mendes was made last week, at around the same time that the WME-repped Bardem received his Best Actor nomination for Biutiful and another high-profile offer of a lead role, that of gunslinger Roland Deschain in the Ron Howard-directed trilogy based on Stephen King’s novel series The Dark Tower. (Amidst all this career activity, Bardem and Penelope Cruz welcomed their first son into the world.) But it should be noted that Bardem was offered the high-profile villain role in Oliver Stone’s Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps and turned it down.

    The other Bond #23 news is this: Deadline has learned that MGM’s new leadership is trying to leverage the next Bond pic, and indeed the Bond franchise, to create more cash flow for the post-bankruptcy studio. The new brass, Spyglass Entertainment co-owners Gary Barber and Roger Birnbaum who are now the Co-Chairmen/CEOs of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Inc, are in the middle of negotiating to make an overall deal for worldwide theatrical and home entertainment distribution of not just Bond but also MGM’s new product as well as its library of films. But what isn’t known is that, as part of that deal, MGM wants whichever studio is chosen to distribute Bond 23 to co-finance a number of films with MGM. “That would provide MGM quick cash flow,” an insider tells Deadline. “The quick cash flow allows MGM to have revenue which it hasn’t had in a long time. Thereby their books look better, and therefore the possibility of getting more funds for production is increased. So expect whichever studio lands Bond to also announce it is several co-financing deals allowing MGM into other pics that are already shooting.”

    There’s no doubt this is a shrewd move by MGM, but Deadline has learned it’s not sitting well with the majors. Top execs at Sony and Fox and Paramount and Warner Bros who are all involved in the negotiations to distribute Bond “are growing increasingly frustrated with the way that the Spyglass duo are playing one studio off another — and enjoying it,” in the words of one exec involved. One studio even described its strategy to win Bond #23 was reduced recently to “pleading”.

    Back on September 8th, Deadline first reported that Paramount and Fox and other studios already were jockeying to distribute Bond #23. (The Hollywood Reporter recently claimed this as exclusive news a full five months later!) Here’s what Deadline’s Mike Fleming wrote back then: “Warner Bros, Sony Pictures Entertainment and 20th Century Fox are the obvious outlets, but don’t count out Paramount. That studio has been co-financing partners with Spyglass on Star Trek and the upcoming sequel. That has grown into a strong relationship. I’m told that Paramount is making an aggressive push to win that franchise, much the way that it captured the Marvel Entertainment deal before that enterprise was sold to Disney. Obviously, Barbara Broccoli and Michael Wilson hold a lot of say in where the films go, but it will be a hotly contested property… Deadline was first to report the distribution outsourcing plan by the Spyglass duo, on June 29th.”

    Broccoli and Wilson had been in pre-production on Bond #23 for release in 2011 but then it took almost a year for MGM’s future to sort itself out what with the failed auction sale of the studio, then the pre-packaged bankruptcy getting approval, and eventually Spyglass taking over studio filmmaking. Daniel Craig will be returning as the legendary British secret agent, with Sam Mendes directing a screenplay written by Neal Purvis, Robert Wade and John Logan. That script is being kept under wraps but the story begins after Quantum Of Solace leaves off.

    it’s not likely Satuski walked away with an empty wallet. think about it, for a minute. Daniel is a very private man; the last thing he would want is for his ex to sell her story to the paps. also, you gotta know that she probably hired a lawyer to help deal with the financial issues of the breakup. i don’t know about GB or NYC but i do know California. this is a community property state. both would keep the money/property he/she entered into the relationship. all money made between the time the two people starting living together and the time it all ended would be split 50-50. that means Satsuki would be given by the courts 50 percent of everything Daniel made during the time they were together. you may not like it but it is the law.

    The original poster (#79) referred specifically to NEW YORK LAW in their post, NOT UK law of any kind.
    #79 fabricated specific, but again false, property distribution laws ‘supposedly’ active and enforced in New York State, but in reality these laws do not even exist in New York State.
    # 79 was saying that those fabricated laws were the ones being enforced against Daniel to give her ‘entitlements’.
    No such thing. Not even close!

    Yes California IS a community property state, and what you say IS true, IF the couple in question is MARRIED/were Married, and Daniel and bleeeeech were NOT married!
    California’s community property law ’50/50′ distribution of what they made while together as a ‘married’ couple …that law does not apply ! They were not married in California, in New York or anywhere else. Their residence was not in California, but in the UK. And only five years together is not considered ‘common law marriage ‘ under any state in the US.

    Hi, Guinness
    “i will send a picture of us playing in the snow”
    I’m willing, even eager!!
    So, he looked a likely man for the Bond villain, and it’s highly likely possibility! It’s fulfil my expectations.

    The new Bond villain? Javier Bardem is intrigued

    Oscar nominee Javier Bardem is notoriously difficult when it comes to getting him to commit to a film, but he admits he has just been offered a part that will be hard to turn down.

    Bardem recently met with director Sam Mendes to talk about playing the villain in the next James Bond film, temporarily titled “James Bond 23” and set for a Nov. 9, 2012, release.

    The actor, who is Oscar-nominated for his lead work in the Spanish-language drama “Biutiful” and who won in 2008 for another villainous role in “No Country for Old Men,” hasn’t said yes to Mendes — yet. He wants to read the screenplay first. But, judging from the grin on his face when we spoke on Monday, he’s very open to the idea.

    “I’m a huge fan of the James Bond saga,” Bardem says. “When I was little, I went watching Mr. Connery doing James Bond with my father. Who in the world would think I’d be in one of those movies?”

    The deal breaker for him, if there is one, will be, as always, if the material doesn’t hold up. But Bardem says he was intrigued by what Mendes told him at their meeting.

    “They’re changing the whole thing, the whole dynamic,” Bardem says. “I’d be playing Bond’s nemesis, yes, but it’s not that obvious. Everything is more nuanced. It’s very intriguing.”

    And the escapism of the Bond franchise would seem a solid fit for an actor newly determined to leave his work behind when he goes home at night.

    “But who knows? Maybe I will go back home saying, ‘I have the world in my hands,’” Bardem laughs. “Evil can be very seductive.”

    As for the poster, Daniel is half-hidden behind Rooney…she is naked from the waist up. But we will never see it… too bad!
    Wait! If Daniel is naked from the waist up instead, studio might permit it…but you know that’s my cup of tea. lol
    And Rachel has visited the set to see Daniel, so he wanted to protect her from the gossip.
    “An initial offer to visit the set has been scuttled at the last minute, possibly because of Craig’s reluctance to be spotted with Rachel Weisz, though Fincher avoids the subject.”

    David Fincher: The Complex Mind of ‘Social Network’s’ Anti-Social Director
    The new Hollywood Reporter magazine offers a rare profile of the anti-authoritarian rebel who shot Rooney Mara topless for a new ‘Dragon Tattoo’ poster, wanted to call Mark Zuckerberg ‘Judas,’ and doesn’t play the Oscar game. ‘You won’t see me on Barbara Walters, Oprah.’
    The following article appears in the current issue of The Hollywood Reporter on newsstands Thursday.
    David Fincher saunters through the fortress-like, 11,000-square-foot Hollywood studio he bought back in 2002 that’s the closest thing he has to his own private fiefdom. It’s as big as his talent, as vast as his imagination — but it’s still not quite right. “Maybe I’ll rip down the walls and have everybody in one open space,” he declares. “What do you think?”
    He smiles slyly, tipping his goateed head to one side, almost daring you to disagree. It’s early morning on New Year’s Day and the director’s latest film, The Social Network, is just embarking on a roller-coaster ride that will see it win the top critics awards, then lose at the all-important PGA, DGA and SAG — mainly to rival The King’s Speech. But Fincher is in a mood to provoke.

    He points to a rifle placed strategically on a desk, “a reminder of the consequences,” he quips, without stating for whom. Perhaps he means for the awards voters or for any studio executive who take him on — though right now, few would dream of it.

    A year and a half since he agreed to turn the improbable story of a billionaire computer nerd into one of the most original pictures in years, Fincher, 48 — a large, authoritative man, coolly commanding even in jeans and a black sweatshirt — has become a superstar, flooded with offers for projects like his upcoming The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. It’s an odd twist for a director who’s kept a skeptical distance from Hollywood most of his life, and might have factored into his DGA loss.

    Alone on this rare day off, except for an eager assistant who hurries to fetch us coffee, he guides me through his studio, past production rooms and sound booths and a tiny theater and into the art department, where images abound from Dragon Tattoo, the story of a bisexual hacker and the journalist she helps unravel a murder mystery.

    There are pictures of his heroine’s apartment, the isolated house where some of the action takes place and a dungeon that’s pivotal to the climax. Photos of various actors line the walls, many in different shades of color, which Fincher and his team used to explore ways to render the period when the photos would have been taken.

    There’s also an aerial view of the island at the heart of the story, carefully charting each locale’s relationship to the others. Fincher has immersed himself in every detail of its geography, just as he has Stieg Larsson’s best-seller on which the film is based. He’s a master of the meticulous — famous for his obsessive research and endless takes, sometimes 50 or more per set-up; even so, he shrugs, “At best you get 60% of what you want.”

    Finally, we reach his spare, modern office, centered on a wooden desk as imposing as Fincher himself. Warming up — as much as he ever allows himself — he takes out an iPad and clicks on a photo he’s planning to use for the Dragon poster. It shows actor Daniel Craig half-hidden behind co-star Rooney Mara, who’s looking directly into the camera. Her hair is spiky, her face pierced with rings, her body covered in tattoos. It’s black and white and beautiful, but there’s no way in hell any studio will ever let Fincher use it, as he knows.
    Because Mara is naked from the waist up.

    “He is systematically anti-authoritarian,” says Bill Mechanic, the former Fox chairman who greenlighted Fincher’s controversial 1999 drama Fight Club. “He challenges authority, challenges decisions.”

    Fincher has been challenging them ever since growing up in Marin County, Calif.; ever since getting his big break making commercials at the ridiculous age of 21; ever since shooting his first film, Alien 3, when he fought the studio so hard he got fired three times.

    Now he expresses just a modicum of regret. “You don’t want to see people cut off their noses to spite their face,” he says. “But I probably did on my first movie because I foolishly thought being this squeaky wheel was the only way to be heard.” Fincher fought bitterly to make Aliens 3 his, while the studio wanted it to be just another cog in its release schedule. The result was a work neither side liked.

    Fincher was 27 when he got the job, and his career was flaring like a rocket, but now it seemed poised to fizzle. The failure of Alien 3, made worse by inevitable comparisons to its Ridley Scott and James Cameron predecessors, must have hurt more than he lets on. Critics panned it and the film made a disastrous $55.5 million domestically — quite a contrast to the success of Fincher videos such as Madonna’s Express Yourself and Aerosmith’s Janie’s Got a Gun.

    “He was very successful at a young age and had people try to take it away from him, and he knows what that feels like,” his Social producer, Scott Rudin, says. But it still didn’t make him toe the line. “He has an anarchist’s mentality,” the producer adds. “He likes to blow up systems.”

    Even when those systems benefit Fincher himself.

    Time and again he refuses to do what’s expected, declining interviews, even poking at the people who most support him. “I’ve been frustrated by what society wanted from me,” he acknowledges, though he’s hardly the confessional sort. “I flip through catalogs and don’t see anybody who’s like me. Flip through a J.C. Penney catalog and you go, ‘None of these people hold any of my concerns.’ ”

    But aren’t they the very people who watch his movies? He shrugs, indifferent. “The comfort zone,” he says, is when they love and hate his work in equal measure. He recalls attending the premiere of Martin Scorsese’s 1982 release The King of Comedy and thinking, “This is fantastic — to take an audience to a place where they feel genuine discomfort!”

    Where Fincher’s love of discomfort comes from is hard to gauge. The son of a Life magazine journalist and a mental-health nurse, it was his father who introduced him to film. “My dad loved movies,” he says. “We used to drive into San Francisco and watch matinees.” At age 7, he saw Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. “It was mind-altering. They’re building full-scale trains and blowing them up. They’re firing blanks at each other and riding on horseback and traveling to these locations — and there’s Katharine Ross! Who would want to do anything else?”

    Six months later, Fincher’s parents bought him a Super 8 camera and he started making his own films. It was liberating compared to his experiences at an alternative school, where “I was a disinterested student. I don’t think I was trouble; I just never bought into the idea that you are supposed to behave this way because somebody is wearing a badge.”

    Life changed at 14 when Fincher’s family, including his two sisters, relocated to Ashland, Ore. The teenager dreamed of returning to San Francisco and joining Industrial Light + Magic, the company created by his former neighbor, George Lucas.

    “It was like, I’m getting further and further from the thing that I want to do,” he recalls, thinking that if Lucas — whom he never knew well, though they lived on the same street (“He was a very quiet guy”) — could make a career in the Bay Area, so could he.

    After working as a local theater projectionist while at school — where he fell for films like Klute, All the President’s Men and Being There — he volunteered at a TV station, got a job with an animation company, then at 19 joined ILM, where he served as an assistant cameraman and matte photographer.

    His parents tolerated his refusal to go to college. But at ILM, while he discovered how brilliant others could be, he was also reminded that the establishment wasn’t always right. “I thought, ‘This is a bunch of guys in Wrangler jeans and plaid shirts who are scratching their asses and trying to figure this thing out,’ ” he notes. “It was horrifying and liberating at the same time. I realized I had fallen for this idea, because George Lucas has blessed these people with a place to blather around, that they were somehow uber-qualified. Really, it was just a bunch of people trying to figure something out.”

    Three years later, Fincher tried to figure out commercials. His first was one of his most memorable. “A friend who was a truck driver and wanted to be a producer said, ‘Give me an idea for the American Cancer Society.’ So we sat down with some storyboard artists and said, ‘Let’s do this thing that’s the Star Child from 2001.’ ”

    Fincher’s ad, showing a fetus smoking, only made him $7,000 but led to work on commercials and music videos, first for Rick Springfield, then, after Fincher moved to Los Angeles, for other artists.

    And yet Fincher was unhappy. “I did videos that were progressively less and less expensive,” he complains. “I ended up being signed by the music-video wing of a commercial production house and just didn’t flourish and didn’t have much fun. I got told by a lot of people that I was only good enough to play in the B- or C-leagues; I was never going to get the $1 million spots.” His response? “I said, ‘F— it, let’s start our own company.’ ”

    In 1986, with Steve Golin, Sigurjon Sighvatsson and Dominic Sena, Fincher founded the management, advertising and production entity Propaganda Films, making commercials and videos for the likes of Madonna, Michael Jackson and Nine Inch Nails. Almost overnight, their annual billings went from $2 million to $70 million. “It was the beginning of the explosion of video directors becoming commercial directors,” Fincher recalls.

    It was also the beginning of commercial directors turning to features, which crystallized for Fincher when he was given Alien 3.

    The director’s run-in with Fox was brutal. To this day, he hates to talk about it. Asked whether he has disowned the film, he says, “I never owned it,” and it has clearly soured him on studios — though he protests: “I like studios. I just don’t like bureaucracies.”

    They didn’t like him, either. Never the warm and fuzzy type, one insider says Fincher was demanding. “He is difficult with the marketing and distribution people, especially,” one former colleague notes. “But that comes out of not suffering fools.”

    Asked about his manner — a certainty that can border on the cocky — Fincher hesitates. “You know, often times I think confidence can look like … it looks like different things to different people,” he says. “But I don’t think of myself as difficult. We’re expected to do stuff that’s awesome; that means we’re going to have to push each other.”

    Given this, it might surprise Fincher that so many of his collaborators speak well of him. Producer Arnold Kopelson marvels at “his knowledge of lenses, of every set-up. He’s an extraordinary filmmaker.”

    Even Mechanic says Fincher’s reputation is exaggerated. “There were lots of issues with the studio, back and forth as always with David,” he notes of Fight Club. “So I asked him to breakfast a few weeks before shooting, and by the end of breakfast we’d agreed on procedures and he stayed 100% true to his word. There wasn’t anything at all contentious in the process. It was one of the best I’ve ever had.”

    By that time, Fincher had redeemed himself with Seven (1993), which in many ways defined his work: dark, visually audacious, emotionally distant.

    “I was the first person hired for the film,” Morgan Freeman recalls, “and I remember him talking to me about the process he wanted to use to make the film dark. I was intrigued. He controls where the camera is, minutely; where the actors are, minutely; where the lights are, minutely. At the same time, he is very collaborative.”

    Fincher followed Seven with the Michael Douglas thriller The Game (1997); then, after Fight Club, he moved on to the Jodie Foster starrer Panic Room (2002) and Zodiac (2007), an adaptation of Robert Graysmith’s books about the Bay Area killer who was active when Fincher grew up.

    The film made only $33 million in North America but was one the best-reviewed pictures of the year. With it, Fincher solidified his reputation as a supremely talented filmmaker, if sometimes arrogant, whose work was defined by its brilliance and also coldness.

    And so it came as a surprise to many Fincherfanatics (yes, there’s a website of that very name) when he took on The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008), Eric Roth’s adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s slender short story. What was a cool figure like Fincher doing on a warm love story like that?

    “I don’t buy this notion that emotion and sentimentality are the same,” he argues. “You won’t see me on Barbara Walters; Oprah, that’s not who I am. I don’t like sentimentality because I don’t like movies that ‘tell’ me — I want to engage in a movie that says, ‘Here it is.’ It’s not a colder point of view; that’s reductive. It’s more adult.”

    More adult than the films Fincher loved in his youth, like Jaws and Star Wars? “I loved Luke Skywalker and I loved Darth Vader and I loved watching them work it out,” he reflects. “But I also love Chinatown: I love the fact that Jake Gittes [Jack Nicholson] is somebody that people had nothing but contempt for.”

    Button earned 13 Academy Award nominations and raked in $127 million at the domestic box office. The film drew mixed reviews but reminded the industry that superstars like Brad Pitt — who also appeared in Seven and Fight Club — often delivered their best performance for Fincher. And yet its success was bittersweet, not because the film won only three Oscars but because it left him utterly, ineffably drained.

    “It took six years to get that through the starting gate,” he sighs. “It was just exhausting.”

  170. 170
    Fio Says:

    (Page 3)
    The desire to avoid that exhaustion came into play with Social Network.

    Initially developed as a project for writer Aaron Sorkin to direct, the screenplay was brought to Fincher by Rudin. “I was given it on a Friday, I read it on a Saturday and on Monday I was in a room with [Sony Pictures co-chairman] Amy Pascal,” he recalls.

    After making sure Sorkin was willing to step aside, “I said, ‘I want to make the movie, but I don’t want to make it next spring. We have to be as close to ground zero with this phenomenon as we can. We have to be in Cambridge in the fall.’ ”

    Sony agreed. Following the usual back and forth — the studio wanted to make the film for $25 million; Fincher insisted on $42 million — shooting began three months later. Unlike Zodiac, where Fincher and Sony had parted ways over casting, the studio accommodated the director’s wishes.

    “I said, ‘You gotta have 20- to 25-year-old kids. You have to give me free rein to find the best people for these parts,’ ” he remembers. “Now, I said this on Zodiacand I got the list and it’s Russell Crowe
and Tom Cruise. This time, Amy wanted me to meet people in the Sony fold. I said, ‘Let’s cast it widely.’ They came back and said, ‘We get it. Go.’ ”

    “Go” meant allowing Fincher to shoot Sorkin’s 162-page script uncut. After 68 days of filming in Boston and Los Angeles, when Sony saw his rough edit — missing only the Henley regatta sequence that would later be filmed to fit Trent Reznor’s prewritten music — “They didn’t ask for any changes,” he says.

    The studio’s marketing executives were more resistant. “We had the one-sheet and we had to get that through,” Fincher notes. “[Key art designer] Neil Kellerhouse came to us with one that had the tagline, ‘Punk prophet genius billionaire thief.’ It was fantastic, but for about four months it was, ‘You can’t do that! We’re not going to get involved in a lawsuit!’ ”

    Fincher smiles. “I wanted ‘Punk prophet genius billionaire Judas.’ ”

    Now he’s back in the Sony saddle with Dragon Tattoo.

    It’s two weeks after our first meeting, and we’re in a tiny trailer at Paramount, where Fincher is filming Dragonon six soundstages — even more than Button — and is huddled with his longtime companion and producer, Cean Chaffin. An initial offer to visit the set has been scuttled at the last minute, possibly because of Craig’s reluctance to be spotted with Rachel Weisz, though Fincher avoids the subject.

    Despite getting a huge budget and precisely the actors he’s wanted, Fincher seems frazzled, dealing with an overheated studio where air conditioning has to pump in cold air to simulate the bitter Swedish winter — an ironic contrast to his Swedish shoot, where the actors had to pretend the sun was baking while temperatures stooped to 40 degrees.

    “I’ve been shouting at everyone all morning,” Fincher grouses, only half-joking.

    Chaffin glances over, concerned. They’ve worked together for 18 years and been a couple for 15, since Fincher split with his first wife following a brief marriage that left him with one daughter.

    Meeting Chaffin casts Fincher in a whole new light. She’s as warm and open as he can seem chilly and remote. “We’re oil and water,” he jokes. But in fact, Chaffin reminds you of all the things it’s easy to overlook with Fincher: His complete rejection of the Hollywood trappings; his loyalty to those closest to him; his strong bond with family; his utter immersion in the work.

    “Cean is very supportive of David,” Kopelson says. “She makes it possible for him to be totally enmeshed in his life of making movies.”

    He’ll be enmeshed in Dragonquite a while longer. With a shoot that includes locations in Stockholm, Zurich and England, he still has 90 days of filming ahead. It’s a giant project that Fincher initially avoided when his Buttonproducers, Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall, broached it.

    “I had just been through five years pushing a rock,” he explains. “I sort of felt, ‘F—, I can’t see anybody wanting to make a movie of this scale about a tattooed, bisexual hacker in Stockholm.’ I can’t go tap-dancing again.”

    He continued to resist even when Rudin obtained the rights. “I was skeptical because the book is huge and there are so many characters,” he says. “But what put it over the top was [Sony chairman] Michael Lynton and Amy’s insistence that they loved the idea of a franchise for adults. If you can’t do a piece like this as a franchise, there’s no chance of ever doing one.”

    Not that it’s been easy. First, there was the issue of casting the lead, Social’s Mara. Then Fincher had trouble with his director of photography, replacing him with Jeff Cronenweth. And finally came the reality of filming in Sweden. “In the EU, you can’t shoot a 12-hour day,” he explains.

    Between that, the weather and the actors’ complicated schedules, Fincher has had his hands full, though he’s thrilled with Mara. “We got her an apartment in Stockholm and she kind of disappeared,” he says. “She learned how to ride a motorcycle and got all of her piercings and tattoos. Also, I asked her to learn how to skateboard because you need to stand like a 13-year-old boy. I said, ‘I don’t want you to stand like a girl.’ ”

    Insiders who’ve seen Steven Zaillian’s script say it focuses far more on her character, Lisbeth Salander, than the Swedish adaptation of the book. So Fincher desperately needs Mara to deliver — just as the studio needs him.

    “There are degrees of wrong, but ultimately I’m responsible,” he says. “I’m either liberated or hamstrung by the material I’m trying to make. But if I’m hamstrung, it’s my f—ing fault.” He runs his hand through his hair, thinking. Even with that rifle back in his studio, should he ever need it, there are limits to what he can do.

    “You’re in charge, but you’re not in control,” the famously controlling director says. “Anybody who thinks they are in control is nuts.”

    Ralph Fiennes In Talks For ‘James Bond 23’
    It looks like director Sam Mendes’ plans for the next installment of the James Bond franchise is attracting some major interest from heavyweight thesps. Javier Bardem has spoken enthusiastically about the villain role he’s being offered (he’s just waiting to read a completed script before he makes a decision) and now another major talent is showing interest.

    Baz Bamigboye at the Daily Mail is reporting that Ralph Fiennes is “in discussions” for a role in the still untitled “James Bond 23.” The “darkly complex” part is being kept under wraps, but it’s apparently not the same part that is being offered to Bardem and that Fiennes was approached because according to Bamigboye’s source, “the part is one of extreme complexity and only an actor of great ability and dexterity can take it on.”

    “It’s the first of a new generation of Bond films, and the ideas Mendes has push the film into darker territory where the characters are modern, mature and challenging,” a film executive told Bamigboye with Fiennes apparently excited by the “revolutionary” approach of the upcoming film.

    More big name actors are apparently being courted and while no names have been given, you can bet they will trickle out soon enough. After the disappointing “Quantum of Solace,” it looks like “James Bond 23” is shifting to be something even grittier than what we’ve seen before. Daniel Craig and Judi Dench are currently the only two thesps confirmed for the film that is eyeing a fall start date and is set for release on November 9, 2012.

    A Fiennes choice for a Bond star Licence to thrill: Actor Ralph Fiennes
    Ralph Fiennes is being lined up as one of the stars of the next James Bond movie.

    I can reveal that his Hollywood representatives are in discussions with the producers and director Sam Mendes about a role in the film that so far is known only as James Bond 23.

    Mendes, who will direct Daniel Craig as Bond and Judi Dench as M, has spoken to Fiennes about ­taking on what has been described to me as ‘a darkly complex’ role.

    Fiennes is not interested in the usual run-of-the-mill action ­picture, but he was intrigued when he was told of Mendes’s ‘revolutionary’ plans for Bond 23.

    ‘It’s the first of a new generation of Bond films, and the ideas Mendes has push the film into darker territory where the characters are modern, mature and challenging,’ a film executive in Los Angeles connected to the production told me.

    At the moment, the situation with Fiennes is purely at the ­discussion stage.

    I was told Fiennes was approached because ‘the part is one of extreme complexity and only an actor of great ability and dexterity can take it on — and Ralph’s name is top of our list’.

    From what I can gather, it’s not the same part that’s being talked about for Javier Bardem.

    I’m told a couple of other major names are being courted for roles in the picture.

    At one point Kevin Spacey was spoken to about doing Bond 23, but he was alreadly gearing up to play Richard III, which Mendes is directing at the Old Vic from June 18.

    Gemma Jones (so good in Woody Allen’s movie You Will Meet A Tall Dark Stranger) will also appear in the play, which is part of the Bridge Project, a transatlantic collaboration between the Old Vic, the Brooklyn Academy of Music and Neal Street ­Productions, the ­company run by Mendes with Caro Newling and Pippa Harris.

    Fiennes has just been filming the role of the prime minister in David Hare’s BBC film Page Eight.

    Before that, he filmed his final frame as Lord Voldemort for the last Harry Potter movie.
    Next weekend, he travels to ­Germany, where his much ­anticipated film version of ­Coriolanus, featuring Vanessa Redgrave and Gerard Butler, will have its world premiere at the Berlin Film Festival.

    Mendes and Fiennes are old friends, by the way. The actor led the director’s Royal Shakespeare Company production of Troilus And Cressida more than two ­decades ago. The play also ­featured Simon Russell Beale — who also may pop up in Bond 23.

    Last December, I revealed that Kate Winslet will move to London while her estranged husband Mendes is directing Bond 23, bringing their children with her.

    Thanks for the article. I’m surprised at the exciting news, but as it’s from the Daily Mail this requires careful handling. Just wait and see…
    Hi, Guinness
    Thanks for the pretty interesting article! Gee, it’s unbelievable how stupid he is. As the centuries went by and China became more crowded, the people found their food supply a great problem.
    I know well there is a brutal barbarous savage act. We all should know we are sinful people. But Ramsey’s methods were revolting to me.
    So when Ana confessed it to Daniel, I think he was very puzzled!! FUNNY.
    Well…Ana couldn’t behave naturally in the presence of Daniel. She was utterly embarrassed in his presence. Aww Ana, I know how you felt!! BTW, IF Daniel didn’t go out with Rachel at that time, do you think that Daniel was dating Ana? – God knows

    Ana de la Reguera Interview

    Q: What was it like working on the set of Cowboys & Aliens? Were you intimidated by working with the likes of Harrison Ford, Daniel Craig and Jon Favreau?
    ADLR : I was most intimidated by Daniel. He was my only celebrity crush in life, ever. I told that to him the day I met him, and I think he was a little bit uncomfortable. I wasn’t able to look at him directly for the rest of the film. It was funny, at the same time. There were times when he was close by, and I just had to leave, because I was just so nervous. By the end, he was making fun of me for acting so weird.

    Hi Fio, thanks for the article. We all can understand how Ana felt when Daniel was around, but she should not have told him about her crush. He is a shy guy and I guess he felt uncomfortable around her after that. She missed her chance to be friends with him. She is cute, but I think the attraction to Rachel is that they have know each other for a long time and were friends. I don’t think he would just “date” cute women from his movies unless there were more to the relationship. Just my thoughts!

    too tired–cocktails too earlye!! Hi Fio–thx for the nervous beautiful woman. aaawww. that was funny, and yes, agreed that she didn’t play it coy enough, blabbing about her crush. ANYONE would have been mortified for someone to say to your face..but i am sure it hasn’t been the first time a beautiful woman like her self-proclaimed wonderful latin self has told Daniel he was their crush. She is a little stuck on being a beautiful latin woman. besides that–she was pretty hysterical in Nacho Libre—one of our family favorites…Jack Black is a good fruitcake.

    And I totally think and admire Dan for picking on her by the end of their time together…ThAT sounds like his demeanor! nice.

    Fio Says:

    Hi, DiH
    I think it a pity for Ana to lose such a chance. But there’s still a fighting chance that she will be friends with Daniel. Hopefully this will be fixed in a sequel to the movie soon. I’m sure his behavior will be that of a gentleman, so Daniel and Ana will be good friends :)
    Well, Daniel likes to make fun of a cute girl tho!!

    Hi, Guinness
    “i am sure it hasn’t been the first time a beautiful woman like her self-proclaimed wonderful latin self has told Daniel he was their crush.”
    “And I totally think and admire Dan for picking on her by the end of their time together…ThAT sounds like his demeanor! nice.”
    Yeah, his behavior was appropriate/admirable to the occasion.
    Daniel just wanted to make Ana felt at ease…
    So Cairo’s Tahrir Square? Nooooooo!!! Daniel cannot fight against a camel!! lol
    spygun: Wonder how many Mossad and CIA operatives are currently frolicking in Cairo. We should send Daniel Craig and his invsible Aston Martin.

    And we all know his costume in C&A is so sexy. I’m sure she easily came up with “something sexy”. It’s Daniel himself, no doubt!!

    Outfitting Daniel Craig for this summer’s “Cowboys and Aliens” movie, costume designer Mary Zophres remembers being asked to come up with something “sexy.” Zophres laughs, “That word never came up while we were making ‘True Grit.’ Words like ‘ugly’ or ‘gross’ maybe, but not ‘sexy,’ that’s for sure.”

    Daniel is Hot Says:

    Yes, we want sexy in Cowboys and Aliens, not ugly or gross when it comes to Daniel.

    Hi DIH…even when Dan is “ugly” he is a picture of sexxiness, agreed.
    MORE snow all day here. hopefully no one is attempting to travel to the east coast this week/weekend. beautiful.

    horrible news Fio, yes…on the square…superman is needed rather than an invisible Astin. And thx for the C& A article again—how do people get these jobs?????

    well, maybe Mendel is traveling in the snow…….stay safe, wear a helmet!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    sorry you don’t believe me but that’s ok. you don’t have to. but for the record i do know people who work with MGM. and i do know that if they can give me information they will. i wasn’t going to tell anyone this but i think you should know. when i mentioned this board one of them told me and i quote “i stopped telling those people on that board anything a long time ago and i’m not the only one” when i see him again i’m going to ask him why; if he’ll tell me. whether i tell anyone here his reason(s) that i can’t tell you. i’ve discovered that if someone says something on this board that you don’t like they get jumped on. life is too short for that.
    You know where you can stick it.
    Hey, were you informed by the people who work with MGM that MGM will not be sold, holders agree with new conditions and wait for their money much more time? Did they inform you that they will accept help by the new investors?
    If they informed you so why you didnt come with this news then?
    I dont need to know people who work with MGM and in the end it went all the way like I said. I recommend you to not listen to the people who “work” with MGM.
    to 139,
    Hey, I dont need to know the whole law to say that Satsuki would go with empty hands. Satsuki was no Ivanka Trump, “a married lady” who hired a lawyer to get milliard of dollars from Donald.
    Satsuki was nobody – no wife, and more Daniel denied their engagement so where is your law when Daniel hid it under his bed.
    By the way, did you considered that Satsuki would be one who left Daniel and not the other way?

    I dont think Daniel is afraid of that what Satsuki would say to the press and sell their story. The whole story is that he didnt want to get marry her and I doubt she would like to sell the story about it. The whole story is that she was not happy, he was not happy.
    If Daniel gave her slap in the face so who other knows it, only the two.
    if Satsuki was his wife, so you can use the law but because she was no wife to Daniel so dont mention any law, it is not useful in this case at all. Daniel indulged her too much with buying Versace and Prada for her, put enough money on her bank account during relationship but when they split, so the money were not the main point, it was about them. after break up EX GF hardly can get money but if she got something so because Daniel is a good man and takes care of her because she is not able to care for herself on her own.

    Dalkey dream house: it’s a case of art mirroring life

    Sunday February 06 2011

    It is a happy coincidence that Irish film director Jim Sheridan’s €4m fight over his Dalkey home could soon be confused with the subject of his next blockbuster film, set to hit our screens this September, but one of the key figures in contemporary Irish film confesses he would sell his luxurious by-the-sea pad if he got the right price.

    Dream House, starring Hollywood heavyweights Daniel Craig, Rachel Weisz and Naomi Watts, is a film about a successful New York publisher who moves his wife and children to a New England town, where they buy the home of their dreams, but the dream of their happy home is soon shattered.

    “It’s a love story, murder mystery, a thriller with a horror element to it. It’s similar thematically to my personal debacle, but it has nothing to do with the house in Dalkey,” laughs the producer and writer.

    Actors Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz, who co-star in the film, both split from their significant others last year having fallen in love on the set of the film. “I was there but I wasn’t aware of them being in love,” admits the Dubliner.

    ‘Shay’, as he is more fondly known by his friends, was the person who suggested Natalie Portman for director Darren Aronofsky’s (Rachel Weisz’s ex-husband) Oscar-nominated movie Black Swan. “I also know Darren well and I’m sorry he and Rachel split up, but these things happen. I got Natalie Portman for Darren; I told him she is the best one could ever work with,” said Sheridan.

    Buying the fisherman’s cottage in 1997 with the aim of developing a new house and rockpool on site, it certainly was Sheridan’s dream house that ended up becoming his worst nightmare.

    It was revealed in court last year how the 62-year-old director and his wife Fran had high hopes for their dream home ‘Martha’s Vineyard’ on the much sought-after Coliemore Road.

    It took a turn for the worse when the property suffered from “extensive water ingress which resulted in substantial damage and frustrated efforts to sell it” to two potential purchasers back in 2007 when it was worth an almighty €7m.

    According to reported sources “their €4m claim included the cost of works to address the water problem and another €2m for estimated reduction in the value of the property” and was made against eight firms.

    Speaking about his frustration, the director, who took Irish stories like My Left Foot and In the Name of the Father to the international stage, says he is still living in the Dalkey house until he gets the right offer.

    Refusing to name his price, the director said: “Ireland is crazy now, I don’t know if anybody would ever buy anything unless they were a rich person. So when I say I would sell it, it is only because I would, but I love it there so I may not. I’m not going to sell it for six quid just because the market has crashed.

    “I can understand the anger but as we hunker down to deal with it, we’ve got to look outward. German banks lent us the money so we’ve got to put the pressure back on them,” he said.

    “You don’t like being in those situations. I fear for anybody who has no resources to be in my position because it ain’t conducive to poor people going to court. I think courts were created to keep poor people away except just say if somebody was shot. The law needs an overhaul here, everything needs an overhaul here,” he said.

    With details of the settlement not disclosed, it is said Sheridan was happy with the outcome.

    however, at the time it was made public knowledge that if the issue was not resolved the couple’s financial position “will be unsustainable”.

    Fincher Wants Breasts All over teh Intern3tz

    I’m pretty set on thinking that David Fincher can do whatever he wants. Seriously, this guy has made some of the most badass movies of all time. His first movie was an Alien sequel, and whether or not that movie is good is irrelevant. He’s had an impressive career, which is about to be solidified when he wins best director for Social Network (moments before it nabs BP). He’s also the guy, and I have to say this, that killed my father and robbed him of his two California gold pieces he kept in his trouser pant could have stolen Daniel Craig from doing the next Bond. It’s all worked out now, thank Shiva, but still. I need Bond back like Disco.
    side note- the next Bond gets better and better every day and it’s not just about having Craig and Mendes. They signed back on Dame Judy, and that’s great, but that was to be expected- now they’re talking about getting Javier Bardem and Ralph Fiennes as unnamed roles. Um, can you say No Country hairstyles all around? YESPLZ
    Anyway, Finch can do whatever he wants, and now he’s testing the strength of that tether by asking the studio behind his stateside remake of The Millenium Trilogy if he can use a topless photo of Rooney Mara as the international release poster. Uh, that’s fine by me, don’t get me wrong, I would actually pay for that poster (this coming from a guy who regularly steals from gift shop kiosks, like, every time he goes out), but in all seriousness it’s not going to happen. He says in that case he’ll release it on tehinternet simply for viral purposes. Fincher has serious balls to ask his studio if he can do that. Not even Jimmy Cameron could get away with that. Mainly because he’d be too busy staring at the poster and giggling ‘Hehe, tits!’
    Also, Rooney Mara is incredibly attractive to me, especially in Social Network,
    it’s funny, though. The first scene she is in she looks like a nerdy little college freshman, but literally five minutes later she looks 4 years older. Anybody care to explain that to me? Maybe it’s just me. Is anybody there? Hello? Hel- oh, hai Garrett Storm.
    but the way her eyebrows look in the pre-shoot pics of Dragon Tattoo makes me think Fincher is planning another Alien movie he’s not telling us about.
    Look, Rooney, we know how excited you are about the naked photoshoot, but WE’RE TRYING TO DO OUR JOBS.

YUP. cuz little girls like them on calendars–mine freakin have one. aaaaahhhhh!)

    anyway, I loved that last post…. “hehe, titts”…. crap that was a good visual. the guy has a point, sex sells. but her booobs are supposed to look manish, and this movie is gonna sell regardless of her boobs. Unless you have been in a tsunami, or in a 3rd world country , or on an Egyptian square, this movie will be seen regardless of her boobs becoming viral. creative Genius, yes, man- being- feminist… the jury is still out your honor–until he starts his press releases about how this can help women battering across the globe. Although Dan is going to be a frontrunner in that respec–he will be the spokesperson for the movie, Fincher? we shall see. YA know what…how many women journalists are going to ask Dan and get wet just listening to his feministic fantasticness—–All of us. including me. damn, i cant’ wait!!!!

    i got to go read the NYT. any Dan news?

    ok freeaky- my 9yr old just asked when C& A was coming out…so she said that she knew about the movie cuz i talked about it and looked it up so many times. yeah, i think i am a little obsessive. yikes.
    OH! i just finished the last tatoo movie. Rapace is gorgeous. and she was incredible!! a few things bother me tho–
    1. what are those things outside on the sidewalk in the middle of a swedish city that are on fire with a metal grate surrounding it?
    B. why did Erika wear the same white sweater—she has lots of money to buy others.
    C. why wasn’t mikel allowed to show any emotions? oh, wait, was he? (the guy is handsome, but was he directed NOT to do this?
    4. why did Stieg NOT want them to shag at the end. I NEED CLOSURE! and they are soooooo ok to shag!!!! aaaaaahhhhh.
    F. The court scene was waaay too NOT crazy enough for me. But i guess that is how courts are run—that the lawyers aren’t allowed to get up and walk around?
    E. I like the story the screen writers went with. VERY AWEWOME movie.
    now, i need a Disney movie to calm my nerves. Art is supposed to make you thing–to extract emotion-whether it be positive or negative emotion. ThAT is what i consider to be art.
    MY Dan said with a laugh, “i wonder how Hollywood is going to make this;;;” I told him i knew, but he doesn’t want to know cuz he is gonna see it with me. EVerytime someone calls Dan “mikeal” in the movie, my brain will put Dan’s face into my brain and I can imagine him as my hubby because that is my hubbys name…. ah, does that make sense?
    anyhoo… i going to have google-earth-satellite your azz Mendel? wtf are you?
    .hubby is watching the super bowl anyway, so I may has well watch 4 hours of it to get one glimpse of the hotness of Dan. and ya know what? it better be a different trailer cuz you know, i will blog about it and yell my outrage here!
