Jake Gyllenhaal talks about being starstruck when meeting Brad in W magazine (January ’22 issue).
Have you ever been starstruck?
… And I was definitely starstruck when I first met Brad Pitt on the set of The Good Girl. I was working with Jennifer Aniston, who was his wife at the time, and there were a lot of very racy scenes. I remember putting my hand out to shake his, and accidentally hitting the door. He said, so confidently and kindly, “Well, you have another one. It’s all right.” He was very, very, very sweet to me, and it was actually a really lovely exchange. But, yeah—I was starstruck.
Extending on KOKS’ first full-length Asian residency at Grand Hyatt Singapore, Chef Poul Andrias Ziska and his team presents additional sessions of Valentine’s Day lunch and dinner for a once-in-a-lifetime experience. On this day of romance, enjoy a swoon-worthy lunch or dinner that is bound to wow and impress your date, especially with accompanying Fleur du Miraval champagne.
Held in collaboration with Fleur du Miraval, the only champagne house exclusively devoted to Rose champagne by Brad Pitt and the Perrin and Peters families, the package comes inclusive of pairings of Fleur du Miraval ER2, with dinner guests gifted a bottle of the rosé champagne complete with a special note from Brad Pitt and Fleur du Miraval winemaker.
Sony has moved its David Leitch directed Brad Pitt action movie Bullet Train and Hello Sunshine and 3000 Pictures production Where the Crawdads Sing to July, respectively July 15 and July 22.
Bullet Train was previously scheduled on April 8 next year, while Crawdads was on June 24.
Bullet Train travels away from a weekend where it was squaring off with Paramount’s event feature Sonic The Hedgehog 2 to a weekend where there aren’t any major studio films scheduled. The Leitch movie will be booked on premium large format screens.
Ancient treasure, a lost city, billionaire baddies — by the looks of the first trailer for The Lost City, Sandra Bullock and Channing Tatum really have their hands full.
The film, directed by brothers Adam and Aaron Nee, also features Da’Vine Joy Randolph, Patti Harrison, Oscar Nunez, Bowen Yang, and a cameo by Brad Pitt.
Bullock and Tatum previously teased the cameo in an exclusive first look with EW, with the former revealing it’s a stunt-heavy part that steals the show.
“And we let him. He just came in, and he tore it up. He’s really funny,” she said of Pitt.
Added Tatum, “He came in and played a certain character that fits into this weird world, and just signed up for it completely and wholly. I’ve met him, but to get to work with him was a whole different thing. I couldn’t focus. It was really an out-of-body experience in a lot of ways.”
A few weeks ago, it was announced that Brad Pitt was going to reopen recording studio Studio Miraval on his winery, Chateau Miraval, in the South of France. At first glance, this may appear to some like another celebrity vanity project. However, this is anything but that.
In case you’re unaware, Studio Miraval (now called Miraval Studios) is one of the legendary studios in music history. Albums like the Rolling Stones’ Exile on Main Street and Pink Floyd’s The Wall were recorded there. Studio Miraval has also hosted sessions by luminaries like The Cure, Sting, Sade and The Cranberries. Not too shabby.
Apple is in exclusive negotiations and will close the first big film package of the new year. That’s the highly competitive race to acquire an untitled pitch package that will have Brad Pitt playing a racer who comes out of retirement to mentor a younger driver and take his final stab at glory on the track as the younger driver’s teammate.
Top Gun: Maverick director Joseph Kosinski will helm, and Ehren Kruger is writing the script. Top Gun‘s Jerry Bruckheimer is producing alongside Plan B.
The Lost City, formerly titled The Lost City of D, is set to be released in 2022. The film will follow the story of a reclusive romance writer Loretta Sage, played by Bullock, who gets caught up in a kidnapping attempt with her book’s cover model, played by Tatum. The story will swing into outlandish adventures, leaving Loretta to navigate her way through the thick of a jungle. Radcliffe rounds out the main trio playing Fairfax, an eccentric billionaire who orchestrates the abduction plot.
When discussing the romantic-comedy elements of the film with EW, Bullock brought up the ways in which The Lost City works to flip certain stereotypes on their head, saying, “That’s what’s so much fun about it, you can take old setups and easily make them new. And the fun thing about the male-female narrative is that now we can turn it on its ear because it’s no longer, ‘This is the woman’s role. This is the man’s role.’ You can mess with all of that and create a whole new dynamic. And that’s sort of what we did.”
Brad Pitt is teaming with French producer Damien Quintard to revive Miraval Studios, located at the Château Miraval in Correns, France. A major renovation, overseen and planned by Miraval co-owner Pitt and Quintard, will see the recording studio reopen in summer 2022.
In 1977, the estate’s then-owner, French pianist and composer Jacques Loussier, built a state-of-the-art studio on the property which hosted sessions for Pink Floyd’s “The Wall,” AC/DC, The Cure, Sting, Sade and The Cranberries, among others. The studio was active into the early 2000s, but has been unused for nearly two decades. Now fully redesigned and updated, Miraval Studios is taking bookings for the summer.
Fox announced that “Lego Masters” has been renewed for a third season, which is set to premiere in 2022.
Will Arnett will return as host and executive producer of the series, which is based on the British edition of the same name and sees pairs of Lego enthusiasts compete in building challenges with an unlimited supply of Lego bricks.
“Lego Masters” is produced by Endemol Shine North America, Tuesday’s Child and Plan B Entertainment under license from the Lego Group.
A bidding war erupted Friday (03-12) for a racing project featuring bold-faced names that has studios and streamers burning rubber to get their gloves on it.
The untitled project has Brad Pitt attached to star and Joseph Kosinski, the filmmaker behind the upcoming Top Gun: Maverick, attached to direct.
Pitt and Kosinski have long tried to make a racing movie. In 2013, Pitt circled Go Like Hell, which had Kosinski attached along with Tom Cruise. That project eventually morphed into Ford v. Ferrari with a whole new actor and director combination.
