JAMES FRANCO has opened up about his crush on SPIDER-MAN co-star KIRSTEN DUNST, revealing it led to tense times on set between himself and her real-life boyfriend TOBEY MAGUIRE.
In a new Playboy interview with his Oz the Great & Powerful director Sam Raimi, who also took charge of Spider-Man, which featured Maguire and Franco as best friends, the actor takes the moviemaker to task for showering Maguire with attention and virtually ignoring him, and then confesses he had feelings for leading lady Dunst.
He says, “I felt you gave Tobey Maguire so much attention during Spider-Man because of your feelings for his character… that I didn’t get as much of your love as he did…
“Tobey and Kirsten became a couple around that time. I had a crush on Kirsten, and I think I was upset about that as well… Tobey was mad at me for a while. By the second film, we were cool, but that’s another reason I felt hurt, with you giving Tobey all the attention… You were the father who wouldn’t give me the love I needed.”
Raimi replies, “I didn’t know that. Gee, that’s just like the movie… and he (Maguire) was getting Kirsten, like the script said he should.”
I’m so sorry I have not been update, but with a new year comes and new start! I’m going to do a full revamping of the site, with a new Themes and a update gallery!
Millennium Entertainment has acquired U.S. rights to Juan Diego Solana’s sci-fi romancer “Upside Down,” starring Kirsten Dunst and Jim Sturgess.
The company will release the film in both 2D and 3D in 2013. Aton Soumache, Dimitri Rassam, Alexis Vonarb, Claude Leger and Jonathan Vanger produced and Phil Hope and James W. Skotchdopole serve as exec producers.
“Upside,” penned by Solana, centers on a man kept apart from the girl he has loved his entire life. He must risk everything to access the forbidden world of affluence that exists literally above him while manipulating the gravitational force that physically pulls him back to his world.
Millennium Entertainment’s Tristen Tuckfield negotiated the deal with Gregoire Melin from Kinology, who also coproduced the film alongside Frederique Dumas from Studio 37/Orange.[Variety]
Kirsten Dunst’s new comedy, Bachelorette, is raunchy.
Like, really raunchy.
So much so that the former child star has banned her dad from seeing it.
“I can’t do that to him,” Dunst, 30, told us at last night’s Hollywood premiere of the flick (available now on VOD and out in theaters on Sept. 7) at the ArcLight. “I didn’t even tell him there was an L.A. premiere. And I was like, ‘Yeah, dad—don’t even try getting it on iTunes because you will not like this movie. You’re a prude. You will hate it. I know you!’”
The flick revolves around three women (Dunst, Isla Fisherand Lizzy Caplan) who are asked to be in the wedding of a friend (Rebel Wilson) they used to bully in high school. The night before the big day is filled with sex, drugs, booze and so much more.
One particularly blush-inducing scene shows Dunst having quickie—and very verbal—sex in a strip club bathroom with X-Men hottie James Marsden
“You just roll with it,” Dunst said of filming the romp. “You hope that you’re working with somebody who is chill and not weird and is like, ‘Can I touch you here? Can I touch you there?’ No! Let’s just go for it and get it over with.”
Yeah, it’s a far cry from Dunst’s previous work. “I’ve wanted to do a comedy but it’s hard sometimes because people don’t see you in a comedic way, even though I did most of my teen roles in comedies,” she said. “This was perfect time and a perfect script.”
Just not perfect for Dad.
We were promised additional films, and they have arrived. The Toronto International Film Festival has added more films to its Special Presentations and Gala sections, and the highlights include the worst kept secret in the world, Paul Thomas Anderson‘s “The Master,” Walter Salles‘ “On The Road,” Lee Daniels‘ “The Paperboy,” and three rather strong films that are making their premiere in Venice first, including Spike Lee‘s Michael Jackson documentary, “Bad 25,” Brian DePalma‘s heavily anticipated “Passion” starringRachel McAdams and Noomi Rapace, and Harmony Korine‘s “Springbreakers,” starring James Franco and many young up-and-coming starlets.
The TIFF Galas are now at 20 pictures, Special Presentations are at 70, and the festival already has 200 films to its name. Even more announcements will be coming soon, but we imagine the the biggest names have already been announced. Other highlights include Nick Cassavetes‘ “Yellow,” Susanne Bier‘s “Love Is All You Need,” Paul Andrew Williams‘ “Song For Marion” starring Terence Stamp, Vaness Redgrave andGemma Arteton, “Greetings from Tim Buckley” starring Imogen Poots and Penn Badgley, andClaude Miller‘s “Thérèse Desqueyroux.” Below are the Gala and Special Presentions additions, and the Wavelength strand.
“On The Road” Walter Salles, France/Brazil North American Premiere
Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Walter Salles and based on the iconic novel by Jack Kerouac, On The Road tells the provocative story of Sal Paradise (Sam Riley), a young writer whose life is ultimately redefined by the arrival of Dean Moriarty (Garrett Hedlund), a free-spirited, fearless, fast-talking Westerner and his girl, Marylou (Kristen Stewart). Traveling cross-country, Sal and Dean venture out on a personal quest for freedom from the conformity and conservatism engulfing them in search of the unknown, themselves, and the pursuit of it – the pure essence of experience. Seeking unchartered terrain and the last American frontier, the duo encounter an eclectic mix of men and women, each adding meaning to their desire for a new way of life. The screenplay is by Jose Rivera (Academy Award nominee for The Motorcycle Diaries), while Executive Producer Francis Ford Coppola has been developing the project since 1978. Also stars Viggo Mortensen and Kirsten Dunst.
The burgeoning world of on-demand/digital releases for feature films hit a big milestone this week. The dark romantic comedy Bachelorette – about three best friends (Kirsten Dunst, Isla Fisher, and Lizzy Caplan) on an epic pre-wedding bender – hit No. 1 on the iTunes Movies chart. It’s the first time a film has hit that benchmark before its theatrical release. Bachelorette, which premiered at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival, opens in select theaters on Sept. 7.
The accomplishment is especially sweet for the film’s distributor, RADiUS, which was created by The Weinstein Company earlier this year specifically to release films in non-traditional formats. Bachelorette was the company’s first acquisition.
Bachelorette stars Kirsten Dunst,Isla Fisher and Lizzy Caplan as a trio of ladies less than thrilled about having to be part of a fourth friend’s (Rebel Wilson) wedding.
Drinking, mishaps and hijinks ensue.
The film also features Adam Scottand James Marsden.
It opens in September.
