    I have to say good choice for Rob. I am so excited that he will be working with another Oscar winner Actress and Oscar nominated actor.

  2. Parisienne January 6, 2011 at 5:31 PM #

    Good Job! He’ll be able to concentrate on something other than Twilight. He’ll be working with Marion Cotillard who was excellent in Inception and brilliant in La Vie en Rose.

    Has anyone read this book?

    • Kim January 6, 2011 at 7:02 PM #

      No and its expensive for my Nook. $10.00

    • Lurker January 6, 2011 at 7:03 PM #

      Not yet was looking for a cheap copy.

    • Parisienne January 6, 2011 at 7:24 PM #

      Have you read the book? Do you think it is adaptable as a screenplay?

      • Open Book January 7, 2011 at 1:28 AM #

        Yes! I think it’s a good book to adapt. It’s a very short read just over 200 pages u could finish it in a day.

  4. Lurker January 6, 2011 at 7:02 PM #

    Interesting, we will have to read this book and see what happens in the story. I’m curious though what part Marion will play?

    • Kim January 6, 2011 at 7:05 PM #

      I heard she is playing his wife, which I don’t understand bc he is in a limo the whole time and is suppose to have sex with 2 girls (neither being his wife) at the same time.

      • Parisienne January 6, 2011 at 7:08 PM #

        Hi Ladies!

        I haven’t read the book yet either. It sounds interesting though.

        • Parisienne January 6, 2011 at 7:12 PM #

          It sounds interesting. He’s going to have to shoot some people, I think. I’d def pay to see Rob with a gun just because he doesn’t seem the type. It will be interesting to watch him play.

          • Kim January 6, 2011 at 7:18 PM #

            Well he did look pretty good in that mtv commercial with Taylor and Tom Cruise.

            • Parisienne January 6, 2011 at 7:22 PM #

              LOL yeah he did.

              • Parisienne January 6, 2011 at 7:22 PM #

                speaking of which i should go find that video of him and tom. I love how rob says “dirt”

                • Kim January 6, 2011 at 7:26 PM #

                  I love that too.

        • Kim January 6, 2011 at 7:12 PM #

          Well I have heard it didn’t get good reviews on Amazon and/or Barnes & Noble. I’ve never read this particular author or know of his work.

          The concept sounds interesting. I would think depending on the screenplay and the director’s vision it could make or break this movie.

          • Parisienne January 6, 2011 at 7:14 PM #

            It seems kind of weird. Everything takes place in a limo in one day from what i’ve read.

          • Lurker January 6, 2011 at 7:15 PM #

            When I read the summary I first thought of the recent movie Buried where the majority of the film is confined to one set/scene/design. It will make the acting be more pronounced because there is mininmal stuff going on for the audience.

            • Parisienne January 6, 2011 at 7:17 PM #

              I could not watch Buried. Being buried alive scares me witless. Does James Franco ever get out alive?

              • Lurker January 6, 2011 at 7:18 PM #

                I haven’t seen it yet. I will though.

                • Kim January 6, 2011 at 7:20 PM #

                  I saw that preview before Eclipse at the midnight opening. That preview and Parnom. Activity 2. Scared the crap out of me.

      • Open Book January 6, 2011 at 7:18 PM #

        It’s a Limo!!! It’s possible……. However, David C. is adapting the book so perhaps he will beef up her role. In the book R only sees his wife/Marion while passing her in traffic in the Limo.

        • Parisienne January 6, 2011 at 7:20 PM #

          oh….yeah i hope they beef up her role i think she is an excellent actress.

        • Lurker January 6, 2011 at 7:20 PM #

          Have you seen the script? I read it’s been floating around since May.

        • Kim January 6, 2011 at 7:21 PM #

          Well that doesn’t sound to exciting. I’m sure the adaption is going to be interesting.

          • Open Book January 6, 2011 at 7:30 PM #

            Actually, it’s more of a psychological thriller. It reminds me of a Alfred H. film, high anxiety, edge of your seat. It will definitely be compelling and guy friendly.

            • Kim January 6, 2011 at 7:47 PM #

              Oh see I like those type of movies. As long its not blood and guts like Tarrentino (sorry if this is mis-spelled).

            • Kim January 6, 2011 at 7:50 PM #

              So this will be a movie my husband may actually enjoy. Yeah.

  5. Kim January 6, 2011 at 7:23 PM #

    I have to say sadly I am not to familiar with this director. Now I did see The Fly a long time ago when it was on t.v. with Jeff Goldbloom if I remember and it kind of freaked me out.

    But I have heard that he is an interesting director.

    • Parisienne January 6, 2011 at 7:26 PM #

      I’m looking him up on IMDB right now. He’s a horror genre director. into mutilations.

      • Parisienne January 6, 2011 at 7:32 PM #

        Kim,

        I figured out how the star status on IMDB works. Its based on hits of the celeb’s IMDB page.

        • Kim January 6, 2011 at 7:35 PM #

          Thanks. How important is the IMDB? Does anyone know?

          • Open Book January 6, 2011 at 7:42 PM #

            BO numbers is the true way to measure popularity not IMDB.

            • Kim January 6, 2011 at 7:48 PM #

              Thank you, which makes sense because that means money. Gee surprising how we always come back to that.

            • Parisienne January 6, 2011 at 7:52 PM #

              🙂

      • Kim January 6, 2011 at 7:32 PM #

        well that doesn’t excite me to much. But I will be a good fan and go watch it. I maybe looking away during some scenes but I will endure it. I may have to come home and watch a couple other movies the only way I can watch horror movies anymore.

    • Lurker January 6, 2011 at 7:27 PM #

      I never saw the whole movie but what I did see of Eastern Promises was good.

      • Lurker January 6, 2011 at 7:28 PM #

        OH he directed Stephen Kings’ the Dead Zone. I read that and watched that movie. I remember that.

        • Open Book January 7, 2011 at 4:52 AM #

          I have not seen this one yet! I did read the book a long time ago. I will have to check it out.

  6. Parisienne January 6, 2011 at 7:29 PM #

    David likes movies about crime families.

    • Open Book January 6, 2011 at 7:32 PM #

      Yes!!! Great director for RP to work with.

      • Parisienne January 6, 2011 at 7:33 PM #

        He seems to be pretty interesting. Why would he be interesting for RP?

        • Open Book January 6, 2011 at 7:39 PM #

          Well this particular film is a psychological thriller which will be great since R seems to be very cerebral.

          • Parisienne January 6, 2011 at 7:41 PM #

            yes he does. I love anything psychological.

          • Lurker January 6, 2011 at 7:41 PM #

            And considering Cronenberg just finished a film about Freud, sounds like a theme.

            • Open Book January 6, 2011 at 7:43 PM #

              EXACTLY!!!!!

              • Lurker January 6, 2011 at 7:52 PM #

                Looks like that movie – A Dangerous Mind has an interest when it’s released this year. Keira in this movie opposite Viggo!

                • Open Book January 7, 2011 at 4:21 AM #

                  Oh! U and me both. I Can’t wait to see this film, sounds very interesting. Love Viggo!!!

        • kneon65 January 6, 2011 at 7:42 PM #

          Well I read someone on Deadline.com state that this director maybe for Rob what Burton was for Johnny Depp and Coppola was for Leo. To help them break that cycle.

          Now crime family type of movies I like. Like the Godfather.

  7. Parisienne January 6, 2011 at 7:40 PM #

    Wow he has a fascination with the human body and bugs but he’s also philosophical. I like this guy. 🙂

    • Lurker January 6, 2011 at 7:44 PM #

      Three movies with Viggo Mortensen. Interesting.

      • Open Book January 7, 2011 at 4:25 AM #

        Did u see A History of Violence?

  8. Parisienne January 6, 2011 at 7:49 PM #

    Open Book,

    Have you read the book yet? I asked you up at the top but the question got placed out of sequence.

    • Open Book January 6, 2011 at 7:54 PM #

      Sorry!! Yes!!!

  9. Open Book January 6, 2011 at 7:53 PM #

    I have to go for now!!! But I have a question?

    Why do u think “Phone Booth” did so well at the BO? It made 97 million worldwide with only a production budget of 13 million.

    • Parisienne January 6, 2011 at 7:54 PM #

      Its psychological. People love to have the crap scared out of them mentally.

      • Open Book January 7, 2011 at 4:27 AM #

        LOL!!!Great reply!!!!

        • Parisienne January 7, 2011 at 11:35 AM #

          Thank You!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Kim January 6, 2011 at 7:59 PM #

      Wow it made that much money. I remember seeing that movie and remember parts of it, but it wasn’t nothing that really stayed with me. But I will agree with Paris. psychological thrillers audiences love those type, like Silence of the Lambs.

      • Open Book January 7, 2011 at 4:41 AM #

        I agree psychological thrillers will appeal to a wider demographic. Meaning, both young and old and men and women.

  10. Kim January 6, 2011 at 7:54 PM #

    Well I have one request from my hubby to Rob. Stop playing the brooding emo characters and he would enjoy his movies more. I have to say he did enjoy The Bad Mother Handbook, which actually surprised me.

    So, it will be interesting how Rob plays this character.

    • Parisienne January 6, 2011 at 7:57 PM #

      I need to go as well. Have a good night!

      • Kim January 6, 2011 at 8:00 PM #

        Good night Parisienne and OB.

    I’m probably in the minority, but I’m halfway through reading my free copy from Google books 😉 but the book is a bit boring and the love scenes are not sensual. It’s almost robotic. I do hope the filmmakers can make it more exciting. So far DeLillo has not made me care about any of the characters.

    • Open Book January 10, 2011 at 10:58 AM #

      Welcome 4string!!

      Google Books!! Great tip…. Without ruining the ending for u. What did u think of the main characters philosophy?
