Possible Additional Scene for ‘Inglourious Basterds’ Unraveled. Words are, the added scene for “Inglourious Basterds” will come from a scene director Quentin Tarantino shot but did not assemble for the 62nd Cannes Film Festival’s version. Having reported earlier that the helmer is returning to the editing room, Anne Thompson of Variety gave more details on the particular scene.

In her recent report, the blogger claimed that the scene will be added in front of the La Louisiane sequence. She wrote, “…it comes right before the La Louisiane sequence featuring Michael Fassbender and Diane Kruger as a British soldier under cover and a German movie star who wants to help him bring down the Third Reich.” Read more.

Moneyball location update

Scenes for the upcoming “Moneyball” movie will be shot at Oakland Coliseum sometime in July, though details are still being hammered out.

The movie, based on Michael Lewis’ book of the same name, will star Brad Pitt as General Manager Billy Beane, who was the focus of Lewis’ book chronicling the A’s unique methods for running a major league team.

Whether Pitt will be in Oakland for the filming is unknown. A’s officials haven’t received details on what scenes will be shot at the Coliseum. Several former A’s — including Scott Hatteberg, David Justice and Art Howe — will play themselves in the Columbia Pictures movie, scheduled to be released in 2011.

“They’ve done some pre-work already,” said David Rinetti, the A’s vice president of stadium operations. “They’ve taken photos so they can re-create sets of the clubhouse and Billy’s office area in the studio.”

The 1994 movie “Angels in the Outfield” had some scenes shot in the Coliseum. Parts of the stadium were painted blue to make it look like the home park of the Angels.

There won’t be many cosmetic changes needed for “Moneyball,” which covered the A’s 2002 season. The Coliseum basically looks the same as it did then. Source.
