Kate Beckinsale was upset when the film company which made her last movie 'Nothing But The Truth' went broke, meaning the movie will not be released.
Kate Beckinsale admits she was "heartbroken" after her last movie wasn't released.
The actress worked with director Rod Lurie on thriller 'Nothing But The Truth' and was very proud of her performance so was devastated when the film company went bankrupt, meaning the movie would never come out.
She said: "To be honest, I was a little bit heartbroken after doing that movie. I was really pleased with it and proud of it, I was nominated for a Critics' Choice award for it, and the next day the film company went bankrupt and the movie never came out. I just felt really bruised by that and thought, I want to take a second."

Hollywood screenwriter David (Marsden) moves to the backwater Mississippi home of his actress wife Amy (Bosworth), who is immediately sucked back into local life. This includes her former flame Charlie (Skarsgard), who is now a contractor working on David and Amy's barn with his chucklehead hunting buddies (Coiro, Powell and Lush). But soon, the tension between Charlie and Amy erupts into sexual violence, as David is taunted about his manhood. And a simple-minded guy (Purcell) turns out to be the catalyst for an eruption of violence.

The star of the 'Straw Dogs' remake, James Marsden, has insisted that he's not trying to compete with the original's legendary actor Dustin Hoffman, stating that he's merely trying to bring his own take on the role of lead character David Sumner.
Veteran writer/producer Bryce Zabel has launched a new movie review website, MovieSmackdown.com, in which newly released films are compared with early ones with similar themes, content or cast. "The way people actually talk about movies is by comparing them to other films they've loved or hated that are similar in some way," Zabel said in a statement. "So we embrace that reality and treat film reviews as a contact sport that has winners and Losers." For Example, The Help is compared with Driving Miss Daisy ; The Hangover with Bridesmaids ; Contagion with (1995's) Outbreak. The concept is carried forth with other features on the site. An interview with Rod Lurie, whose Straw Dogs opens today (Friday), focuses on the differences between his film and the original 1971 movie directed by Sam Peckinpah.

The movie is billed as the true-life story of the film's director/co-writer Brian Goodman, a South Boston guy who spent a few years in jail before getting his break in Ted Demme's Monument Ave. and showing up in several projects by Rod Lurie (a producer on this film). Being that Goodman made a career in Hollywood as the kind of square-jawed tough who got mowed down by the G-Men in the final reel of an old Republic serial, it's fitting that his first project as filmmaker would be this scrappy piece about his pre-Hollywood life as a second-string Southie hoodlum.

Cancelled TV drama COMMANDER IN CHIEF may come back as a TV movie. The US ABC network pulled the series earlier this month (MAY06) and will air the final three episodes of the series in June (06). According to ABC spokesman STEVE MCPHERSON, the network is in discussions with the show's creator, Rod Lurie, about filming a two-hour movie that would revisit the first US female president, played by Geena Davis. He explains, "It's a fantastic story that Rod has in mind, and there's still a really dedicated audience for the show. "It would give Rod a chance to tell a lot of stuff he didn't get the opportunity to tell and give us another look at it in a reconfigured form." Although the project is not confirmed, MCPherson said he'll continue discussions with Lurie throughout the summer (06). If the project goes ahead, MCPherson hopes it may gauge whether "there's some life after that, pending how we execute it."
Geena Davis lead calls for a female US President today (03MAY06) as she was awarded for her portrayal of US leader in TV show COMMANDER IN CHIEF. The actress was presented a red, white and blue sash at a dinner hosted by The White House Project, a non-profit organisation pushing to put a woman in The White House. Davis told the 500 guests at the United Nations Delegates Dining Room in New York City, "So many countries have had a female head of state before us. So it is certainly time. "I think it's appalling that we haven't yet. The crime is not that it's taken so long, but why haven't we done it yet?" Commander In Chief creator Rod Lurie, who also picked up a prize, added, "Females represent 51 per cent of the country and it's absurd that they're not represented in the highest level of power, and not even given that opportunity. "There's a lot of firepower in the world, ladies and gentlemen. There's lots of it, but there's no weapon as powerful as an idea whose time has come."

Filming will start on 19 June (06) in Calgary, Canada.
