Tuesday's odds and ends:
- Michael Winterbottom's controversial Berlin hit The Road to Guantanamo has been picked up for American distribution by Roadside Attractions, who plan to give the film its US premiere at Tribeca, and have it in theaters this summer. None of that multi-platform release action for this side of the Atlantic, but at least we get to see the thing.
- Did you know that Clint Eastwood has nine kids? And that one of them is an actor named Scott Reeves? Neither did I. Of course, if his Scott Reeves is the one the IMDB (there are actually two, but since one was born in 1966, I'm assuming he wouldn't be able to play a troubled teen), he's been in exactly one movie, so perhaps calling him an "actor" is going a bit far. Whatever his title, Reeves is joining the cast of P.D.R., as is Evan Ross, who will be making his debut in ATL later this month (and has apparently decided that it's a good career move to only appear in movies with three letter titles).
- Man alive - Catherine
just gets better and better. In addition to its interesting story and kickass director, the movie's also got a cast with
some serious acting chops. Already set to star is Oscar nominee Keisha
Castle-Hughes, and Variety reports this morning that Shohreh
Aghdashloo, Oscar-nominated for her supporting work in House
of Sand and Fog, has been signed
to play Saint Elizabeth (for those of you who are with me in heathen-dom, she's John the Baptist's mom).
