Icelandic movie producer Sigurjón Sighvatsson is to produce a movie by Irish director Jim Sheridan, possibly to star Oscar-winning actress Reese Witherspoon and Oscar-nominee Leonardo DiCaprio.
The movie will be a remake of Brödre (Brothers) by Danish director Susanne Bier, released in 2004. David Benioff will write the script, who is one of the highest-earning screenplay writers in Hollywood, as stated in Fréttabladid.
Some of Hollywood’s most famous actors and actresses have declared their interest in participating in the project, including Leonardo DiCaprio and Reese Witherspoon, but the cast has not been decided on yet.
Sighvatsson explained to Fréttabladid that it can be difficult to get a high-profile cast together, “Many of the biggest stars are booked many months, even years, in advance.”

Comments Off on People’s Most Beautiful 2007
Reese Witherspoon is featured in People’s Most Beautiful issue of 2007. Other celebs featured include Drew Barrymore, Scarlett Johansson, Jennifer Garner and Wentworth Miller. We will have a scan of this soon.
“Some people are effortlessly glamorous and sexy,” the actress, 31, has told People. “For me, a lot of that stuff is difficult.” Still, her skin-care regimen sounds pretty easy: “I just wear a lot of sunscreen. That’s it. Nothing more. I’m just lucky my grandma gave me great skin.”

Comments Off on Estée Lauder Eyes Reese for a Campaign
Could Estée Lauder be on the verge of signing its second Oscar winner? According to a industry sources, word has it that the beauty giant is in talks with Reese Witherspoon about becoming the newest face of Estée Lauder, joining an illustrious roster that already includes Gwyneth Paltrow, Liya Kebede, Carolyn Murphy, Elizabeth Hurley, and, most recently, Hilary Rhoda.
The 31-year-old actress and mother of two, who won an Academy Award in 2006 for her role in Walk the Line, is rumored to be in the elementary stages of discussion, with the source adding that there is no concrete contract just yet. Witherspoon, just one of a pool of coveted actresses that have yet to pledge their allegiances to any one beauty brand—including Natalie Portman, Julia Roberts, and Keira Knightley—recently agreed to be dressed by Nina Ricci’s Olivier Theyskens for all formal public outings, and reportedly has a deal to wear Van Cleef & Arpels jewelry on the red carpet exclusively.
An Estée Lauder spokesperson declined comment. Witherspoon’s publicist was unavailable for comment.

Comments Off on Freeway DVD Re-release
Freeway has been re-released on DVD and may be ordered at Amazon. Here are excerpts from JoBlo’s DVD review:
Video: Presented in 16×9 “widecreen.” (Seriously, it says “widecreen” on the box.) As for the transfer, it’s still the same, non-remastered version of the film, and victim to all the grain and imperfections.
Audio: Dobly Digital 5.1 surround, THX enhanced. This is one part of the DVD that comes through.
Have you been waiting for Freeway to get the Special Edition treatment? Congratulations, you get to keep waiting! This is nothing more than a cheap re-release of the exact same DVD from 1997. C’mon, Lionsgate; you could’ve at least sprung for a real DVD menu.
Director’s Narration: Wow. This DVD is so old, they weren’t even calling ‘em commentaries yet! Writer/director Matthew Bright has plenty to say about the movie (dubbing it an “artsploitation film”), as well as some interesting tidbits on being plucked from obscurity to make his debut feature, but overall a pretty boring commentary.
