KATE WINSLET IS THE NEW “MILDRED PIERCE”

Two months ago we told you with some trepidation that Kate Winslet is starring in a 5 hour miniseries version of the 1945 movie classic “Mildred Pierce” and it’s already started filming. Kate is dressed in her depression era fashions shooting in New York. Todd Haynes, the genius behind “Far From Heaven” pays close attention to lush period decor and fashion so we have high expectations for the movie. Joan Crawford’s role is not easy to assume, but if anyone can do it, Kate can do it with Todd Haynes.

    I agree w/ PitBullLover — I can’t imagine anyone but Joan Crawford in the role… but, “Far From Heaven” was a great sort-of remake of “All That Heaven Allows,” and it was terrific!

    Todd Haynes is an incredibly talented director but this is cinematic sacrilege.

    Filming in New York? The story is set in and around Los Angles, Beverly Hills and Long Beach.

    I can’t wait to see this. Read the book, Joan Crawford’s version was overdone.

NEW UPDATE CHECK IT OUT - HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT!

  • HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT: LOOK WHO’S NOT TALKING ABOUT HARVEY WEINSTEIN !
    |

    We love every one of Harvey Weinstein’s female accusers – but what about the actresses who AREN’T talking? One actress who won an Oscar in the 90’s has been CONSPICUOUSLY SILENT about the casting couch scandal. It’s because SHE has had a long-term “arrangement” with Harvey in which she traded sex for showbiz favors and it must have been awful, but her career prospered. Now this A-lister is horrified at the prospect of being found out! And, guess what – she’s NOT the only one who’s conspicuously silent!
    Any guesses?
