Inarritu Denies Hollywood Boycott
Mexican movie-maker ALEJANDRO GONZALEZ INARRITU has slammed claims he's deliberately snubbing Hollywood, insisting he'd be happy to take on a Tinseltown project if the script appealed. The 21 GRAMS director has attracted a long line of Hollywood stars to his movies, including BRAD PITT, CATE BLANCHETT and SEAN PENN. But he's largely shied away from the US film industry to concentrate on homegrown ideas, and is in no rush to change his ways. Speaking at a London Film Festival screening of BABEL last night (02NOV06) he said, "I've just never found something that is better than what I'm already doing. "I have nothing against Hollywood, but what I'm doing at the moment just seems more important, more urgent."
