Dianna Agron - Dianna Agron's Spielberg Surprise

Dianna Agron's Spielberg Surprise

Dianna Agron was shocked when iconic director Steven Spielberg knew her and wanted her to work on a film he was producing.
Dianna Agron was "flabbergasted" when Steven Spielberg knew who she was.
The 'Glee' actress met the iconic film director earlier this year, and was surprised when he knew who she was and wanted her to star in 'I Am Number Four', an action movie he was producing.
She said: "This project kind of came full circle because in January I had met Steven Spielberg. He had said, 'You know, there is this awesome script and we're interested in you but you're not available because it shoots in October.' And I was just flabbergasted that he knew who I was."
Initially she was worried she wouldn't be able to work on the project because of her schedule for Ryan Murphy's 'Glee' - in which she plays cheerleader Quinn Fabray - but managed to work out a plan.
She told "My manager, love her, was like, 'We can shoot for this.' and I said, 'You're crazy. The shoot goes too long and it's not going to match with the break.'
"Luckily, I read the script, and I loved it. I met the director D.J. Caruso and we just bonded so quickly. Both the film and the show worked around each other. So I'm here because of very many things, people, luck, patience, and my manager being persistent."
'I Am Number Four' - which also stars Timothy Olyphant, Kevin Durand and Alex Pettyfer - is due for release in early 2011.

Star Wars VII Movie Poster - Every End Is A New Beginning

Just saw this Star Wars VII movie poster on Kyle Newman's Facebook feed.  The poster is by Lyndon Berresford and Paul Bateman. 
I am loving this.  Who do you think the two characters are?  Lando and Leia?  Han and Leia's children?

Have you seen other Star Wars VII movie posters?  Let me know.

Did Paul Freeman Accidentally Eat A Fly In Raiders of the Lost Ark?

The Famous Indiana Jones Fly In Belloq's Mouth Scene.  Did It Really Happen? I've always wondered if Paul Freeman unintentionally consumed a fly in this scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark?  It's the scene where Indiana Jones shouts down to Bellosh...I mean Belloq and threatens to blow up the ark.  Did a fly go in his mouth?

I remember watching this scene back in the early eighties and my ten year old mind thought he definitely had a snack while filming.  I recall talking about 'flygate' in my school playground at the time and the general consensus with my friends was that Freeman definitely had a sneaky snack.

Paul Freeman talks about the famous 'fly' scene in an interview with and settled 'flygate:'

This is a bit of a dicey question so don’t get too upset. (Laughs) A movie’s always got bloopers in it, some have a lot, and some only have three or four. And the most remarkable blooper was right before the opening of the Ark scene.…

Pinewood Studios To Expand To The Usa

BBC News have reported that Pinewood Studios are to expand to the USA.  This is great news for the famous studio that is rich in movie history.

UK film studio Pinewood Shepperton has announced plans to build its first sound stages in the United States. The Pinewood Atlanta complex will be built on 288 acres of land south of Atlanta, Georgia, as a joint venture with a US investment company. Georgia has been among the US states drawing film-making away from Hollywood with tax incentives in recent years. The deal is the latest sign of expansion at Pinewood, the home of the James Bond franchise. Earlier this month it announced a joint venture with a Chinese media group, potentially giving it access to the fast-growing Chinese market.
