Dennis Farina Dreams Of Priest Role


Dennis Farina Saving Private Ryan

Saving Private Ryan star Dennis Farina wants to give the Catholic Church a movie makeover by playing a good priest.

The actor, who was raised a Catholic, admits he's tired of religious film characters being portrayed as monsters and sex fiends and he'd like to show the positive side of the faith.

The Snatch star tells WENN, "I've always had a desire to play a priest, maybe because of my Catholic background. I want to play a good priest. I think we've had enough with bad priests. That didn't bode well for us.

"In my experiences with priests and Roman Catholic clergy, it has always been wonderful. In grammar school I had the nuns, in high school I had the brothers and the priests. I got the occasional ruler on the hand but certainly none of the inappropriate things that was going on; I never even heard of anything like that.

Oscar-winner Steven Spielberg is turning his attention to high fashion and developing a TV series with supermodel Christy Turlington and her husband, actor Ed Burns.
The couple are attached to write a drama series set in the fashion world and based on an idea from Spielberg, who came up with the concept after attending New York's fashion week.
The storyline will focus on five twentysomethings with fashion jobs such as photographer, designer, makeup artist and model.
Spielberg specifically sought out Burns, who starred in his film Saving Private Ryan and Turlington, who are close friends of his, to handle the project.
Executive producer JUSTIN FALVEY says, "There's a phenomenal partnership here in terms of this project.
"Ed brings real character and a relatability to it, while (Turlington's) experience as a model is invaluable. She brings this expertise and insider's knowledge to it."
Burns and Turlington will serve as executive producers on the show and if it is made into a pilot, Burns is also on board to direct.

Spielberg: 'Independence Day Thwarted My Film'


Steven Spielberg Orson Welles War of the Worlds Independence Day Saving Private Ryan Tom Cruise

Director Steven Spielberg would have re-made Orson Welles' classic sci-fi radio show War of the Worlds for the big screen much earlier if it wasn't for special effects blockbuster Independence Day.

War Of The Worlds fired the Saving Private Ryan director's imagination when he purchased the last existing copy of the radio script 12 years ago - but he didn't want to jump on the alien invasion film bandwagon.

The 58-year-old tells British movie magazine HOTDOG, "If I could have, I would have begun this movie 12 years ago. I bought at an auction the last surviving War Of The Worlds radio script and it was amazing, I guess you could say a distillation of the novel.

Movie star ETHAN HAWKE still regrets turning down Will Smith's role in sci-fi blockbuster Independence Day, because the film could have turned his fortunes around.

He tells American magazine GIANT, "On the page, that part was nothing; he (Will Smith) totally created it. I remember reading it and showing it to a friend, like, 'Can you believe how bad this line is - 'Now that's what I call a close encounter'. Give me a break.
