Richard Zanuck: Mogul by trade

user
Oscar winning producer Richard Zanuck hit "the Road" at 77 years old.  I remember very vividly the first time I met Richard Zanuck. We were in Deauville at the American Film Festival to premier "Road to perdition". He was flanked by his son and Tom Hanks.  No matter how accomplished I may be in my career, the little Frenchie who dreamed of making films, and meeting her idols, is still very much part of who I am today.  Even though I can't say I ...

Sorkin Presents NEWSROOM at Los Angeles Film Festival

user
Halfway through the first scene (he writes long scenes) of Sorkin's NEWSROOM I thought, "This show could change the world." I am a Sorkin fan, and an idealist, but that's besides the point. In the same way that THE WEST WING made Americans feel apart of what was happening in Washington, NEWSROOM does too. It takes place in a newsroom in Washington, and not only that but it's set during the real events of the day beginning on April 20, 2010. I feel like this kind of pseudo-inside look...
