HOLLYWOOD – As the year comes to an end, the Oscar race is heating up and a clear frontrunner has begun to stretch away from the pack: Paul W.S. Anderon’s Pompeii.
The disaster movie starring Kit Harington as the gladiator Milo, who falls for rich merchant’s daughter Cassia, (Emily Browning). Their love most transcend social barriers, the jealous of Senator Corvus (Kiefer Sutherland) and the erupting volcano which threatens to bury everything under molten lava and choking ash.
Oscar watched Xavier Poulis told the Studio Exec EXCLUSIVELY:
Paul W.S. Anderson has already achieved some Oscar success with There Will Be Blood, picking a statuette up for Daniel Day Lewis and Kit Harington has definitely become the man to beat. Already in Game of Thrones, Kit has shown remarkable versatility as the know nothing, Jon Snow. In Pompeii he truly comes of age, but if he does win it is likely he will have company in his co-stars Kiefer Sutherland and Emily Browning who are likely to pick up a Best Supporting Actor and Actress nominations. This should also be the firs time Anderson himself receives a nomination. Many believe that if he does win the Oscar it will be a combination not only of this film but the accumulation of achievements which has seen him produce such a diverse body of work as Alien Vs. Predator and Magnolia. Truly a remarkable director.
As yet the nominations have not been published, but speculation is already rife that this will be a bumper year, though some commentators have also pointed to the possibility that The Interview might be nominated as a political gesture of solidarity with Sony.
The Oscars will take place on February 22, 2015 at the Dolby Theater, Hollywood.
HOLLYWOOD – It was revealed yesterday, and much to the consternation of Milla Jovovich, that Paul W.S. Anderson, the artistic genius behind Resident Evil, The Three Musketeers and Alien Vs Predator is in fact that same person as the trashy commercial director Paul Thomas Anderson, whose crowd pleasing The Master recently gave the plebs their jollies at various low brow festival such as Venice and Toronto.
Rumours have been rife for years and no one had ever seen the two director in ‘the same room together at the same time’. And Oliver Stone – among others – had pointed out the possible connection between the Andersons/Anderson dilemma and the faking of the moon landing and various theories surrounding the 9/11 attacks.
Anderson himself who will now be known as Paul Thomas W.S. Anderson expressed relief that ‘the lying is over’.
‘I originally got the idea from Stephen King when he wrote the Bachman books,’ Anderson said. ‘After Event Horizon got such a panning I wondered if I’d ever work again and so I invented this whole other identity, but really it was just a couple of middle initials. I thought everyone already knew.’
HOLLYWOOD – Paul W.S. Anderson (who recently was revealed to be the same person as Paul Thomas Anderson, CLICK HERE) has confirmed that his next film will be Alien Vs. Predator Vs. Prometheus:
Speaking with the Studio Exec, Anderson said the follow up to Prometheus will be ‘like one big xenomorph tag team.’
Anderson is obviously enthused at the prospect of AVP(VP) and says the script is already finished and filming is ready to begin.
I basically knocked it out in an afternoon. Funny thing is I rang Damon Lindeloff to boast and he told me Prometheus has taken less time to write than it took to watch. Like I’m sitting at the feet of the master. Hey, Master, The Master, get it?
The film will take place in the same universe as the Alien and Predator franchises and will also involve ‘Engineers’ and a really stupid bunch of humans.
That was the brilliance of Prometheus. Usually if you’re writing characters who I supposed to be really brainy it’s really difficult, but Damon made the scientists dumb asses, that was almost like the “autobiographical” element.
Alien Vs. Predator Vs. Prometheus will be released in October 2016 and will star various wives.
