- How did you start your career?
"I was an assistant of director. I've seen enough on the people who" sticks "from themselves - another reason to practice restraint! But I still have a long tongue, so I was not the best assistant."

"I was shocked. I bow to those who appreciated my work."
- A meeting with what celebrity has made the greatest impression on you?
"I can not say that any experience is better than another, but if the question is so, it - Steven Spielberg. I saw him few times, and he was always smiling. And I'll probably looked like a maniac persecuted him . Yes, he and Oprah Winfrey. They both. Oprah changed my vision of what I become, and Steven had a tremendous influence on my acting skills. I think he is the best. And the fact that I was given a chance to appear in the film to his studio and talk to him, makes me ceaselessly repeating, "Oh, my God!"
- When you first arrived in Los Angeles, Keanu Reeves has assisted you when your car broke down. Have you ever met him since?
"No, but I always go to the movies for all his films."

"Honestly, I do not know how I’d lived, if I had not so much relatives.

"Well, they should be nervous (laughs). When people look at me, they usually understand, it is worth to bother me or not. When I talk to do not mind, I raise my eyes and look around. When I do not want to be bothered, I lower my head and read book. Usually I have no problems, people appreciate my "position" correctly. But if someone comes to tell me "hello", I'm not going to be rude. "
- Are you going to somehow reward yourself? Make some gift to yourself?
"Well, I am going to pull a tits. This will be my first gift to myself. I also soon be forty, and I want my boobs were the same as at seventeen."
Director of controversial film series "The human centipede" Tom Six said in his twitter that the third part is going to link the five hundred men. I wonder whether the project be allowed to release the British censors?
Dutch director became known for horror film "The human centipede." The picture was published in 2009 and almost immediately gained cult status in a number of moviegoers. Two American women are victims of sickening experiments, the German surgeon who is going to connect more people with the aim of creating a single digestive system. What and where to sew the good doctor, you can imagine, in spite of the film.
Interestingly, the film that investors had no idea how the surgeon creates a maniac, his "centipede", so that the result has been seriously confused. Six himself admits that inspired David Cronenberg movies and Japanese horror, but prefers more realistic approach to cinema.
In America, "The human centipede" has not received release deals, so that was shown in New York and several theaters. The reaction of the public, gazed at various film festivals, and reached the gag reflex. Tom Six realized that he had a hit on his hands, and took the second film.
Sequel to a straightforward name "Human centipede 2" was originally conceived as a release for home video. In the story of a maniac surgeon linked to the centipede 12. In England, censorship is forbidden to release the film as distributors are not cut out 32 most sickening moment. At the show in the U.S., held at the Fantastic Fest in Austin, film distributors IFC Films distributed hygiene packs to audience.
The negative reviews of the sequel did not stop director from the work on the third film. "The human centipede 3", according to the Six's tweet will be collected from more than 500 people. "This is an American-style XXXXL!" - Wrote Tom. A few days ago, the director wrote that he started casting, and the performers of the main roles require great courage. In the language of English idioms, they have to grow eggs. In a figurative sense.
Tom Six is planning to shoot the third film this spring in the U.S.
Exorbitantly high budgets of studio projects sometimes cause freeze the picture, but sometimes there are happy-endings. For example, last December, Warner pulled up work on a film by David Dobkin, "Arthur and Lancelot," because of financial difficulties. But this week the project came to life again, and the role of Lancelot can play Colin Farrell.
Last summer, the studio has paid two million dollars for the scenario of "Arthur and Lancelot," who wrote Dobkin. Details of the plot were not disclosed, but we know that this is a new look at the history of the Knights of the Round Table. According to insiders, the main and most interesting role in the project - Lancelot, but not the Arthur, as many believe. Perhaps, therefore, first of all confirmed actor for the role of Lancelot. His was to play a Swede Youel Kinnaman.
Arthur would play Keith Harrington of the television series "The Game of Thrones," but as an actor dropped out of the picture due to Dobkin shooting schedule. However, as others say insiders, one of the main problems was the lack of movie star names. So Warner canceled the shooting, which was planned to start in January of this year.
Now David Dobkin invited Colin Farrell to play Lancelot. I can not say that the Irish actor absolutely ensure the project fund. However, the comedy "Bores bosses" has earned with his participation in the worldwide box office of over 200 million dollars, but can not say that Farrell was the first violin of the film. As an action hero, we see Colin in the summer, when there will be a remake of the fantasy "Total Recall".
The role of the magician Merlin offered Gary Oldman, the actor refused. Rumor has it that Warner is going to turn again to the Oldman with the proposal.
Recall that because of "Arthur and Lancelot» Warner closed two projects on the Knights of the Round Table. One of them was going to shoot Bryan Singer, and another - Guy Ritchie.
Biographical film "The Drummer" of the drummer for the band The Beach Boys Dennis Wilson can not be considered an expensive Hollywood project, which, however, does not interfere with this independent film to gain a solid cast. Aaron Eckhart plays the main character, Vera Farmiga - participant of the group Fleetwood Mac, Christine McVie. Also in the film will be occupied Chloe Grace Moretz and Rupert Grint.
Dennis Wilson was not only a drummer, but also the founder of The Beach Boys, which included brothers Brian and Carl Wilson and Mike Love's cousin. The group was formed at the suggestion of Dennis in August 1961 and immediately gained popularity due to the songs about surfing. Despite the fact that the image of the group was based on a California beach and surfing culture, from all the participants only Dennis is really surfed.
The Beach Boys influenced the formation of many musicians, including Elton John and Fleetwood Mac. As far as Dennis Wilson, his role in the group had not been a leading - sometimes Brian Wilson hired drummer to record albums. Dennis resigned to the situation, but eventually began to record solo projects. His only solo album Pacific Ocean Blue was released in 1977 and became a cult album a few years later, after the death of Dennis - he was drowned December 28, 1983, while in an intoxicated state.
Note that The Beach Boys drummer was familiar with Charles Manson, who in the late 1960s, was interested in music career. Manson and his commune "Family" often stayed in the house of drummer, who introduced Charles to the producer Terry Melcher. For some time he was interested in Manson's album, but ultimately refused. It was assumed that suppressed anger at the man who rejected his music, and resulted in the brutal murder of the wife of director Roman Polanski and Sharon Tate of her house guests, as Melcher once lived in it.
Star of movie "Kick Ass" and "Hugo" Chloe Moretz plays the daughter of Dennis Wilson, Jennifer. Jennifer Wilson, she is one of the producers of the film.
Rupert Grint, familiar audience for the franchise, "Harry Potter", won the role of Stan Shapiro, mail delivery man in the company of William Morris and a friend of Dennis in the last years of his life.
At the helm of "Drummer" is director Randall Miller, whose latest film "Bottle Shock" was released in 2008 (it starred Chris Pine and Alan Rickman). Filming will begin on June 15. The plot of "Drummer" will focus on the last six years of Dennis Wilson life.
Through participation of Hugh Jackman in the film "Prisoners" has found a new breath. Previously, the project undertook a variety of directors, and interested in the title role, Mark Wahlberg, Christian Bale, Leonardo DiCaprio and Michael Fassbender. Now "Prisoners" are run under the leadership of the Canadian Denis Villeneuve, whose "Incendies" nominated for "Oscar" for best foreign film.
The hero of "Prisoners" Keller (Jackman) - a carpenter from a small town. His six year old daughter and her friend are kidnapped. Distraught Keller decides for himself to deal with the matter, finds a man who believed involved in the crime, and takes hostages. In parallel, he investigates a young and ambitious detective who can not wait to get out of the wilderness to the city. Clash of Keller and the police will be one of the major plot lines of the film.
The script for "Prisoners" wrote Aaron Guzikovsky, and his work circulated in Hollywood since 2007. But only after Mark Wahlberg in 2009 drew attention to this mix the "Seven" and "Silence of the Lambs," as it described a scenario, the project began to take shape. But then, in 2009, nothing happened. Since Guzikovsky became known in Hollywood as a writer of "Contraband," but for "Prisoners" were used a variety of directors.
The first laid eyes on a project Bryan Singer. It was he who had to make a film with Wahlberg. But as time went on, "Prisoners" does not move off the ground, and Singer began to shoot fairy tale "Jack – the giants’ killer". Since then, the director's chair of "Prisoners" was seized by David O. Russell and Daniel Espinoza, but the last was by Antoine Fuqua. The director of "King Arthur" planned to work on the "Prisoners" in March of 2010, and the film even got a release date - October 22, 2010. Starring Hugh Jackman was listed, but, as you might guess, then, too, did not work.
Now the project is taken by Denis Villeneuve, and starring Jackman was back. The actor plans to star in "Prisoners" in early 2013 - before the actor is free. Now Hugh acted in the musical Tom Hooper's "Les Miserables", and then again will try on a suit of Wolverine from the comics Marvel.
Producers of Alcon Company, where will be shoot "Prisoners", of course, are on the seventh heaven, having obtained the lead role, Hugh Jackman, and as a director - the talented Canadian director.
The release of the film is scheduled for November 2013-th.
At least five projects about Peter Pan have been circulated last spring in the film world, but it crystallized so far only one - a television production of "Neverland", filmed in the UK. Hollywood is in a hurry for the English colleagues - director of "Warrior" Gavin O'Connor will shoot a film with the same name but different content. Channing Tatum will serve as his producer.
"Neverland," O'Connor initially called "Pan". Book by JM Barrie has undergone a total revision of the writer, "Hunger Games" Billy Ray, and the boy who does not want to grow up, the brother was terrible Captain Hook. Studio Sony has acquired the script for the seven-figure sum.
New story of Peter Pan - part of the next trendy Hollywood epidemic on the revision of the classic fairy tales. The first sign was "Alice in Wonderland," get rich studio Disney, after which it was stated several films about the Snow White (two of them out this year), five projects of Peter Pan, two different "Sleeping Beauty" (one of them turned in "Malefisent" with Angelina Jolie). And that we are still silent about the four versions of Frankenstein, as they do not really fit the term "fairy tale".
Gavin O'Connor set for the Disney studio hockey melodrama "Miracle", shot by Edward Norton and Colin Farrell in the police drama "Pride and Glory," and last year released an unappreciated distributors and viewers a picture of "Warrior" with Tom Hardy and Joel Edgerton.
Channing Tatum this year will be a frequent guest on the big screen. Now you can see him in the melodrama "The Vow", recently released thriller "Knockout", and in front of highly regarded by Western critics of the comedy "21 Jump Street", action "Cobra 2" and a picture of Steven Soderbergh's "Magic Mike" about the strippers. Tatum has two years of trying his hand at producing, and "Neverland" will be his next work in this field.
When the end of January there was talk about the transition to the American Academy electronic voting system, immediately intensified rumors about moving the awards ceremony, "Oscar" at the earliest possible time. Unfortunately, the "Oscars" are still in February, and in 2014, can generally be awarded in March.
Back in the fall of 2011 Film Academy was thinking about the transfer ceremony in 2013 to 27 January. "Oscars" for some time wanted to move to earlier dates in order to keep the intrigue. Now, when the guild is almost completely decided the fate of the main Message Boards, the audience is less and less interested in direct translation.
However, by the end of November insiders talk about the impossibility of translation. The fact that in the event of early "Oscars" ceremony, like the rest of awarding the "Golden Globe», BAFTA, and all of the same variety of rewards and guild will have to endure. As one anonymous insider: "I do not understand why they need it? "Oscar" - a Super Cinema! What does it feel? We all compared to the Academy Award playoffs. "
Film Academy then decided to switch to electronic voting system. Despite the fact that hacking "Oscars" will be a blue dream hackers moviegoers, this week it was reported that due to Internet voting on nominees 'Oscar' in 2013 will be announced a few days earlier, on 15 January 2013th. For comparison, this year's nominees are known to January 24.
Since Sunday, February 3, 2013-th, is already in Super Bowl, which airs on channel ABC, as well as "Oscar," Feb. 10 awards ceremony will take place on the British Academy (BAFTA), and "Grammy", then the earliest date for the "Oscars" Next year - 17 February.

As of 2014, here in the course of the measured Oscar intervenes Sports - Olympic Games in Sochi will be held from 7 to 23 February. When the "Oscar" is near the Olympic Winter Games, Film Academy usually moves it away for a week. So the 86th awards ceremony "Oscar" can be held on March 2, 2014-th.
Transfer "Oscars" at the earliest possible time - the dream of moviegoers, but it's not a dream of film academics. They already not enough time have watched all the pictures, so that bridge the gap between the nominations and the ceremony until they are.
Sequel to the film by Chris Columbus “Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief" is just one casting decision will attract an army of fans Star series" Firefly "and" Castle. " Nathan Fillion is approved for the role of god Hermes in the film "Percy Jackson: The sea monsters."
The picture with Logan Lerman Columbus in the title role was the adaptation of Rick Riordan's first novel in a series about a boy - the heir to the Greek gods. At the first "Percy Jackson" spent 95 million dollars in worldwide box office collecting 226 million and barely worth the picture.
In "The Lightning Thief," a simple American boy learned that his father - the Greek god Poseidon. The young man held a series of tests, the results confirm his eminent origins. "Sea monsters" will speak about how Percy goes in search of his friend, the satyr Grover, trapped in a Cyclops Polyphemus. At stake is not only a satire, but the whole Camp Half-Blood: Someone has poisoned Thalia sacred tree, which means that the protection of the camp is about to fall, and nothing can keep the monsters from invading.

Shoot a sequel is going German Thor Freudenthal, for some time laboring fervently in the field of family films in Hollywood. Among his works are "Hotel for Dogs" and "Diary of a weakling."
Nathan Fillion, who is an icon of geeks in the West, thanks to TV series "Firefly" and friendship with director Joss Weedon was in the sequel to the role of god Hermes. Recall that in Greek mythology, Hermes was the god of trade, profit, wisdom, dexterity, imposture, fraud, theft and eloquence. Messenger of the gods and conductor of souls of the dead into the underworld of Hades, Hermes is usually depicted young boys, but in the movie Freudenthal will be like Nathan Fillion.
In the universe of Percy Jackson Hermes is the father of the protagonist antagonist played by Jake Abel.
Based on the novel Jordan Belfort "The Wolf of Wall Street" will mark the fifth picture for the tandem of Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio. The film is in development for five years, for some time been managed by Ridley Scott, but in August this year it will begin to shoot Martin Scorsese.
Author of "The Wolf of Wall Street" Jordan Belfort founded one of the largest brokerages in 1987, but ten years later was convicted of money laundering and several other financial crimes. Belfort spent 22 months in prison, coped with drug and alcohol addiction, produced during the fraud on Wall Street, has written two books and now lectures on how to achieve success.
Back in March of 2007, Scorsese and DiCaprio announced a desire to work on, "Wolf," but the director and the actor could not manage to agree on work schedules. In addition, the studio Warner and Paramount could not share the project. In 2010, the film showed interest in Ridley Scott - by the time he also managed to collaborate with DiCaprio, shot him in political thriller "Body of Lies." Once again, the history of a broker was unrealized.
About a year ago, the rights to "Wolf" was acquired by Red Granite Pictures, and then Martin Scorsese once again expressed his desire to shoot a picture. The director said that he would film the book of Belfort after the movie "Hugo".
Adaptation of the "Wolf of Wall Street" was engaged in Terence Winter, writer and executive producer of TV series "The Sopranos" and "The Boardwalk Empire." He will once again walk on his work before, in August of 2012, Martin Scorsese will begin filming.
Scorsese and DiCaprio began a collaboration on historical drama "Gangs of New York," continued the "Aviator" consolidated "Oscar" for "The Departed" and most recently worked together on the "Shutter Island". "The Wolf of Wall Street" will be the fifth film of the duo, but still holds the record for a tandem Scorsese and De Niro. Director has shot Robert De Niro eight times.
Interestingly, in January of this year, Michael Fassbender in an interview said that he had discussed with Martin Scorsese's role in one of the upcoming movies. Could we talk about "The Wolf of Wall Street"? It will be known closer to May, when it will be announced the main cast. At the Cannes Film Festival Red Granite will sell the rights to release the movie.
Hollywood has long chosen to the biography of South African President Nelson Mandela, but came from the other side. Mandela appeared in "Invictus" and Clint Eastwood drama "Winnie" on the second wife of the president, but Nelson himself remained in the shadow. Perhaps the picture, directed by Justin Chadwick's "Long Walk to Freedom” will correct this mistake. Nelson Mandela could play Idris Elba, whereas the role of Winnie Mandela's got a new Bond girl Naomi Harris.
According to Screen Daily, a project Chadwick will be epic scope. The film will cover the full life of Nelson Mandela, including his imprisonment, which lasted 27 years. Winnie Nelson was the second wife of politician. They were married in the late '50s, when the famous Mandela has just started to gain momentum. Divorced his wife in 1996.
Earlier in film biography of Mandela undertook a variety of directors. In the nineties, Morgan Freeman could play the South African president in the film of Shekhar Kapur. In the end, Freeman has embodied this image from Clint Eastwood. Tom Hooper recently looked in the direction of Mandela biopic, but then came "The King’s speech” and director's career went in another direction. The history of relations between Nelson and Winnie is reflected in the Anglo-French TV movie "Mrs. Mandela", where the couple played by David Harewood politicians and Sophie Okonedo, but about the full meter Mandela has not yet been formed.
A few weeks ago it became known that the star of series "The Wire," Idris Elba is attributed to the role of Mandela in the project producer Anand Sinha. Recently, Singh drew a picture of the director staged "Another one of a kind Boleyn" Justin Chadwick, with whom he worked on the drama "The Pioneer".
The script for "Long Road to Freedom" written by William Nicholson, twice nominated for "Oscar" for scripts for the films "The Land of Shadows" and "Gladiator." He also had a hand in composing historical melodrama "First Knight" and worked on a sequel to "Elizabeth" called "Golden Age".
Today the company to Chadwick and Elbe was added British actress Naomi Harris. She played a witch Tiyu Dalma in "Pirates of the Caribbean" and is now removed in the 23th of the film 007. Harris also worked with Chadwick over the "Pioneer".
