Kenneth Branagh Casts Himself as Hercule Poirot in Murder on the Orient Express Movie

-He's directing and starring with Ridley Scott as a producer

-No other cast members have been announced

-Hercule Poirot has been portrayed by Albert Finney and Peter Ustinov on the big screen in the past. But neither can compare to Davis Suchet.

-Summary: While traveling from Istanbul to London, an American passenger using a false name is murdered while the train is stuck in a snow drift. Poirot discovers everyone on the train had some connection to the murder victim and are all therefore under suspicion.

Dan - eye

Sacha Baron Cohen's new movie has 'Daniel Radcliffe' contracting HIV & trying to infect the Queen...

So, apparently in Sacha Baron Cohen upcoming movie The Brothers Grimsby, he'll have an actor 'play' Daniel Radcliffe, who apparently contracts HIV and then tries to infect the Queen........

In the movie, apparently, while there's an actor who looks like Dan spitting up blood, a TV report shown about this will have an actual photo of Dan to tie in with this 'story'. Mess.

A source close to Dan allegedly says that it's outrageous and that they'll talk to Sony Pictures about removing the stuff with 'Dan'. The film comes out this March.

Tom Hiddleston says that he's really good at not being problematic

Tom Hiddleston recently wrote an essay for the Financial Times describing his experience in the film industry doing promotional tours for films, as well as talking about how technology is changing movies.

He explains that actors have the duty of promoting a film and representing all of those who worked hard to create a movie whenever they go on promotional tours.

He goes on, saying that actors have to work hard in keeping their personal dignity intact during these promotional tours since journalists and reporters don't play fair, choosing to focus on negativity and an actor's shortcomings for page views.

Tom Hiddleston hints that he'll never say or do anything problematic, since he is very skilled at "dodging headline-chasing hot potatoes: those questions designed to elicit a sensationalist answer more likely to drive traffic to a given website."

we'll see about that!

Book post! Hemingway's Parisian memoir, "A Moveable Feast", sees surge in sales

Ernest Hemingway's "A Moveable Feast" (French title: "Paris est une fête"), published in 1964, is set in the 1920s, as Paris recovered from World War I.

The book celebrates Paris and is currently #1 on France's Amazon website after re-entering its Top 100 list just four days ago.

Paperback versions are being deposited, along with flowers and candles, in front of the sites of the attacks.

The book includes Hemingway's famous line, "If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris as a young man, then wherever you go for the rest of your life it stays with you, for Paris is a moveable feast."

The book's French publisher, folio, has received more orders for the book in the past week than what they usually get in a whole year  for the title (~8,000).

The Women Of Hollywood Speak Out

This is that exposé that Meryl Streep tweeted about. Maureen Dowd talked to more than 100 women (and men, but some of they would say shit like "call some chicks") about the pervasive sexism that keep women from directing movies and runing studios. This article is lenghty so behind the cut there will only be direct quotes and some highlights that may interest ONTD like Amazing Amy Pascal's Tragic Villain Backstory. Your good sis here would still recommend you to read it in full.

How do you feel about this, ONTD? Be aware that this article can be rage-inducing because rich white men ain't shit, etc. TYFYA!

Melissa Rosenburg Discusses the Heavy Subject Matter and Feminism of Jessica Jones.

Melissa Rosenburg, the EP of Marvel's Jessica Jones, has been making the rounds talking about all things JJ including feminism and how to write rape into a show without being gross about it.

[tw: discussion of rape]- On rape as a plot point she said: "We're very conscious to treat that aspect of the story with sensitivity and responsibility. For me, if I never see an actual rape on a screen again it'll be too soon. It's becoming ubiquitous, it's become lazy storytelling and it's always about the impact it has on the men around them...It's damaging. It's just hideous messaging, and so coming into this, the events have already happened and this is really about the impact of rape on a person and about healing, survival, trauma and facing demons."

On feminism and Jessicas character: "I'm a pretty out and proud feminist, so that's always very forefront in my consciousness, but really the focus in writing her and breaking story with the other writers, the focus was just on doing a fascinating character. She's not defined by her gender, she is simply a character. When you're writing a white male, you don't approach it as, "Well, what would this white male do?" You just approach it as a character, and I find so many times when people are writing either a female character or a person of color, the character gets limited to that one aspect of who they are and I think that's part of why we see so few of them on our screens"

interview part 1
interview part 2

tl;dr: Melissa Rosenburg is an amazing person and the best possible choice there ever could have been for Jessica Jones. I highly recommend reading both parts to the interview because there's a lot of great things including more elaboration on the quotes I pulled out here.
