TRIVIA---June 6 is the 74th anniversary of D-Day, so today's trivia is about SAVING PRIVATE RYAN.

Image


Robert Rodat's script was inspired by the true story of Sergeant Frederick "Fritz" Niland, a paratrooper with the 101st Airborne Division on D-Day. He had three brothers, all of whom saw combat in World War II.
Sergeant Robert Niland was a paratrooper with the 82nd Airborne Division and was killed in action on D-Day, Lieutenant Preston Niland was killed in action near Utah Beach the day after D-Day and Sergeant Edward Niland was listed as killed in action when his B-25 Mitchell bomber was shot down over Burma a month before D-Day.
With his three bothers presumably killed in action, Fritz was transferred back to England. Later it was learned that Edward was not killed in action, but was captured by the Japanese and was liberated in May, 1945.
Unlike the movie's lost Private Ryan, Fritz Niland was never lost and no Ranger unit was sent to find him.

The Niland brothers: Robert, Preston, Fritz and Edward.

STAR WARS---The Ankler newsletter said Kathleen Kennedy might leave her position as head of Lucasfilm as a result of fan disappointment with SOLO and THE LAST JEDI, "While Kathleen Kennedy worked wonders relaunching this property from the abyss of the Lucas prequel trilogy and turning it into a bigger than ever all-devouring cultural force, there has to be more than some thought that it’s time for new blood at the helm. The talk out there is of a September changing of the guards. We’ll see."

Fleiss said about her ex-boyfriend Tom Sizemore, who was removed from a movie set after molesting a child actress, "He liked horse porn, though. He did like horse porn.

STAR WARS: EPISODE IX---Colin Trevorrow commented on if the failure of his BOOK OF HENRY was a factor in him being fired from EPISODE IX, "You know, I don’t know. I mean, I can’t really speculate on it. I’ll tell you that the reaction to BOOK OF HENRY was far more damaging than the actual movie. And I don’t mean specifically at Lucasfilm. I mean, that was a very acidic situation. And, look, every director who has worked in Lucasfilm put their heart and soul into the job and they left it all on the field, and the bottom line here is that sometimes creative people can’t find a shared path through the woods."

YOU SHOULD HAVE LEFT---Kevin Bacon and Amanda Seyfried star in this movie based on the novel about a writer who is working on the sequel to his big hit in a secluded house in the mountains where he encounters the supernatural.

SUPERHERO MOVIES---20th Century Fox CEO Stacy Snider warned about too many superhero movies, “If we don’t continue to reach out to the folks that come more than just to see The Avengers, we are going to have just the weekend business. ... For the studios that expect that more of the same will always bring a result, there is folly in that. We want to continue, for example, with our X-MEN movies and our DEADPOOL movies, but at the same time we have great success with a movie like MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS or THE GREATEST SHOWMAN, where we are very mindful of speaking to this global audience, but not doing it in a way that in the past has homogenized all of the product. Where things fall off the cliff is when that bright consumer says, ‘I have seen this movie.’”

PEOPLE OF EDEN---TBS cancelled the series.

TRIVIA---more James Bond movie trivia.
THE ASSASSINATION BUREAU cast included five actors who also appeared in James Bond movies.

I am going to Marvel to pitch HOWARD THE DUCK, a new movie...In like three weeks. I want to direct the HOWARD THE DUCK remake [laughs]. Why not dream big, right?" Howard had two brief appearances in the GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY movies.

Image


ARACHNOPHOBIA---remake underway of the 1990 comedy horror movie about giant spiders that starred Jeff Daniels and John Goodman. James Wan is the producer.

GAME OF THRONES---George RR Martin commented on the prequel pilot, “Yes, this is a prequel, not a sequel. None of the characters or actors from GAME OF THRONES will appear in the new show. All of the successor shows we’ve been developing have been prequels, as I have mentioned before. This one really puts the PRE in prequel, since it is set not ninety years before GAME OF THRONES (like Dunk & Egg), or a few hundred years, but rather ten thousand years (well, assuming the oral histories of the First Men are accurate, but there are maesters at the Citadel who insist it has only been half that long). We’re very early in the process, of course, with the pilot order just in, so we don’t have a director yet, or a cast, or a location, or even a title. (My vote would be THE LONG NIGHT, which says it all, but I’d be surprised if that’s where we end up. More likely HBO will want to work the phrase “game of thrones” in there somewhere. We’ll know sooner or later).”
He also discussed the other spinoff series, “As for the other successor shows…if you have been following along, you know that we started with four, and eventually went to five. One of those has been shelved, I am given to understand, and of course Jane’s [Goldman] pilot is now moving to film. But that does not mean the others are dead. Three more GAME OF THRONES prequels, set in different periods and featuring different characters and storylines, remain in active development. Everything I am told indicates that we could film at least one more pilot, and maybe more than one, in the years to come. We do have an entire world and tens of thousands of years of history to play with, after all. But this is television, so nothing is certain.”

DEADWOOD---Kim Dickens commented on the status of the HBO movie, "Well, I’ll tell you, next up, looks like all signs are go to do the DEADWOOD movie this fall. I’m not giving an official release on this or anything, but yeah, they’re locking us down."

LUCIFER---Amazon Studios is in talks to pick up the cancelled Fox series.

LOONEY TUNES---Warner Bros. Animation is developing new Looney Tunes cartoon shorts. Each one will last 1-6 minutes. The first is "The Curse of the Monkey Bird" featuring Daffy Duck and Porky Pig.

THE VERY EXCELLENT MR. DUNDEE---Paul Hogan plays himself in this movie in which he is about to be knighted, but then his reputation is destroyed.

AEON FLUX---MTV live-action tv series underway based on the animated tv series. The 2005 movie version starred Charlize Theron.

LITTLE BEE---Julia Roberts stars in this Amazon Studios movie based on the novel about young Nigerian refugee girl and a British magazine editor.

TRIVIA---the body count for WHERE EAGLES DARE is 100 dead German soldiers.

Clint Eastwood (Schaffer)--73 (five shared with Richard Burton and 10 shared with Mary Ure).
Richard Burton (Smith)---26 (five shared with Eastwood)

THE FLY---Jeff Goldblum said he would like to return if a sequel to the 1986 David Cronenberg movie is ever made, "Maybe I show up as a grandchild of the original Seth Brundle, or Seth Brundle had a brother. Had a brother that emerges in some way!” Cronenberg was working on a sequel that was never made due to budget problems.

THE CHANGELING---tv rights were bought to the novel about a man whose search for his missing wife and son lead him to mysterious islands and haunted forests in New York.

MAN ALIVE---20th Century Fox sci fi movie underway in which the sole survivor of an alien invasion is horrified to discover he may not be alone after all. Hiro Murai (ATLANTA) is in talks to direct the movie.

THE EXPANSE---Amazon Studios CEO Jennnifer Salke explained why Amazon picked up the cancelled Syfy series, "Jeff Bezos was getting emails from everyone from George R.R. Martin to every captain of industry, like the founder of Craigslist, and they were all writing, saying, there’s this show, it’s so great, you have to see it, you have to buy it or save it.”

PARKS AND RECREATION---Chris Pratt commented on if he would return for a rumored revival of the sitcom, "As long as I'm in town, yah, I'll do it. It films like 10 minutes from my house so that would be dope. I miss Andy too. I would love it. I know I would do it."

The movie's developers predicted the Hook role would make Booth a major star. Instead, Caine got the lesser role of Lieutenant Gonville Bromhead and learned that Paramount Pictures told the director that Caine's acting was so bad, he should be fired immediately.
ZULU became a huge hit and launched Caine's Oscar-winning career, but Booth never achieved major stardom.
In the movie, Hook is portrayed as a drunkard, petty thief and trouble-maker, but in reality he was a model soldier. During the movie's premiere, Hook's daughter walked out to protest the inaccurate portrayal of her father.

Michael Caine got the lesser role of Lieutenant Bromhead which launched his Oscar-winning career, even though the studio ordered him to be fired because of his bad acting.
