Twilight stars Converge on Baton Rouge!

www.jimbrownla.com: The new “Twilight” film has captivated my home town of Baton Rouge with movie star sightings occurring throughout the city daily.  The various movie sets are surrounded by fans who want to catch a glimpse of the stars.

Twilight Director Accuses Hollywood Of ‘Sexism’

www.entertainmentwise.com: Airing her opinions to TheWrap, Catherine Hardwicke revealed that she wasn’t considered to direct The Wrestler because she wasn’t a man.

The (angry) director blasted: ” I couldn’t get an interview even though my last movie made $400 million. I was told it had to be directed by a man – am I crazy? It’s about action, it’s about boxing, so a man has to direct it … but they’ll let a man direct Sex in the City or any girly movie you’ve ever heard of.”

Facinelli to star in indie drama he wrote

www.variety.com: Peter Facinelli will star in “El Chico Blanco,” an indie drama the “Twilight Saga” star wrote and will co-produce through his Facinelli Films.

Carl Franklin (“Out of Time”) is directing the film, which stars Facinelli as an outcast raised in the barrio who rises to a position of power within a crime family.

Titan Worldwide Entertainment is financing the project, which will be shot in New Mexico. Hyde Park Ent. will handle foreign sales.

What do you think of Dakota’s new film? I don’t remember seeing her in a movie where she had another accent. It’ll be interesting to see how she handles the British one, maybe spending so much time with Rob, she’ll get some advice ;)

What did you think of Cameron’s interview? We didn’t hear much news about Breaking Dawn, but it was nice to see something recent. Cameron mentions the books as source of the twilight fandom. But, how did you get addicted to Twilight?

What do you think of Catherine’s comments about sexism? Would she have been a good director for the Wrestler, if you saw her from the point of view of directing Lords of Dogtown and Thirteen?
