Odds and ends for Tuesday:
- Greencine has announced a deal with Zealot Pictures and Heretic Films to become the first vendor to release a DVD and make it possible that you at home can buy the film, rent the film through mail or download it over the internet -- all at the same time! Sheesh, and all I want it to do is sing me to sleep at night. Can you make that possible Greencine? Huh? Please? The film making history is called 24 Hours on Craigslist and it's a documentary that chronicles, well, take a wild freaking guess..
- Seeing as David Cronenberg and Viggo Mortenson have a history together, it's fitting that the two will once again be teaming up on the Steve Knight (Dirty Pretty Things) penned Eastern Promises. Cronenberg, who directed Mortenson in last year's A History of Violence will once again step behind the camera. Pic is being described as a thriller that focuses on a nurse who, while investigating a child's death, stumbles deep inside the world of sex trafficking. This one has dirty, pretty and violence written all over it.
- How can we possibly go a day without following Quentin Tarantino on his quest to break Jon Heder's record for Hollywood Person Involved in The Greatest Number of Projects At One Time? This latest rumor has the bad-boy director directing a Jimi Hendrix biopic. According to the report, Tarantino will have full access to Hendrix's music and likeness, with the film supposedly going into production later this year.
