Today's Long Read
The complete short story"The Birds"which inspired Alfred Hitchcock's 1963 classic and will inspire the remake (argh) which might star Naomi Watts and be directed by Diederik Van Rooijen-- which I keep hoping will be cancelled -- is available online if you've never read it.It's from Daphne du Maurier who Hitchcock obviously liked as she also wroteRebecca.(Thanks to Sashafor pointing it out.)

From the Variety story on the casting of "Pan": "The world being created is international — and with a very different title character than previously imagined."

International being Europe I suppose and based on who they cast as Pan I doubt I can say he is very different than what I have previously imagined.

I unapologetically love Beautiful Creatures.It has everything I want from a campy Southern gothic: bad accents,a confused plot,fantastic costumes,Viola Davis arguing with Jeremy Irons,and Emma Thompson chewing the scenery like it's made of goddamn bubble gum.

I'm guessing that if McPhee is starring in a series called Scorpion,it's one with no sting,no bite,and one when seen stirs nary a second look.

DAMMIT,Karen wins again!I mean how has McPhee gotten a lead role AGAIN while Megan Hilty is currently looking for work?

Though if McPhee's role in Scorpion is a emotionless robot,i will totally withdraw my complaint.

derreck - right?it's just not right

anne marie -- on this we must part ways

I can see Karen/Katharine as a sort of bored trophy wife with no emotions and too much botox.But the best thing is I don't have to worry about this show or watch it at all.

And by the way,I think McPhee's talents must lie,er,elsewhere to keep getting these parts.:-) Oh,that was fun to write.

I see nothing wrong with doing a remake of"The Birds"as long as they come up with an original story that has nothing to do with the Hitchcock classic.

You're killing it today with the links Nathaniel!

An Uma Thurman introspective,news of a Sofia Coppola project,and my beloved Brittany Murphy (rip lady) making one last appearance.All great things.

On the opposite side of things.....how on early does Katharine McPhee keep getting acting jobs?I've had more fun watching paint dry than I did viewing her performance on Smash (team Ivy all life long!).

March 18,2014 | Unregistered CommenterZacary

I agree with Uma Thurman completely on the topic of Lar Von Trier allegedly being a 'misogynist.' It bothers me a great deal that one of the few writer/directors who genuinely doesn't see women as secondary to men is the one who walks around with the label 'misogynist' while the vast majority,who seem to take for granted that treating female characters seriously is optional,are just barely examined at best.It's always looked to me like Von Trier was an easy target for lazy thinkers.

DuMaurier also wrote 'Jamaica Inn',which was one of Hitchcock's earlier works before moving to Hollywood.
