HOLLYWOOD – Barack Obama’s Supreme Court Justice nominee Merrick Garland has joined Zack Snyder’s Justice League movie.
Following Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, Zack Snyder’s new film The Justice League has been joined by Supreme Court Justice nominee, Merrick Garland.
Snyder phoned the Studio Exec EXCLUSIVELY to speak about the project:
It was the perfect storm of opportunity. Merrick Garland was nominated for the Supreme Court and it looks like that nomination will be blocked. I phoned and I said, ‘Listen, I can nominate you to another kind of Supreme Court.’ And he said ‘Well, all right. What do I need?’ I asked if he had a cape. He said he had robes and I said we start filming last Wednesday.
Garland will be joined by Ben Affleck, Henry Clavill and Willem Dafoe. President Barack Obama has already congratulated Garland and has also expressed his hope that the nomination will still go through. However, Ted Cruz and Donald Trump have both said that they will block the casting if they become president.
The Justice League will be released in 2017.
OLYMPUS MONS – Brown Bunny and Buffalo 66 director and star Vincent Gallo is concluding what has been described by the actor/astronaut as a ‘largely useless’ mission to Mars.
In his final video link before he begins his two year voyage back top Earth, Vincent Gallo told the Studio Exec EXCLUSIVELY:
When I left there was such an air of optimism and hope. My last movie was due to be released – Promises Written on Water – and there were crowds of people cheering me off. And I’ve always had quite a cynical view of Hollywood people, but everyone – directors, producers, agents – came to see me off and it was such a party atmosphere. I was really touched. I thought, they really understand how important it is that I go to Mars. It was incredible.
Well, I was midway there that it first occurred to me looking out at the vastness of space that no one had actually given me a mission as such. It was a crazy oversight, but I have no real scientific know how, I don’t know about geology or chemistry, or biology or astronomy. So when I arrived there was very little for me to actually do. I took some photographs but stupidly I hadn’t deleted my memory card and it was almost full. I should have deleted all my shots from the Venice Film Festival but in the end I thought, I really want to keep them. So there wasn’t even a record I could keep.
Didn’t NASA give you a list of things they wanted?
NASA? Who are NASA?
The National Aeronautics and Space Agency.
Never heard of them. I take my orders from the MCA. They must be rivals I guess.
So how did you spend your time on Mars?
Well, not having much to do I developed some screenplays and I’m hoping to start filming the minute I get back to Earth. They’re going to be experimental and long. God they’re long.
In unrelated move, President Barack Obama today confirmed that the orbiting missile defensive shield system (or Star Wars) has been turned outwards to aim away from the Earth in what is being called an ‘Exercise’.
