Sinopse: O

julgamento das pessoas que se manifestaram, em 1968, em uma convenção

do partido Democrata em Chicago, fazendo do evento um dos eventos mais

importantes dos anos 60.

Sinopse em inglês (FONTE: /film? Written by Aaron Sorkin, and based on the true story of the seven

defendants charged with conspiracy and inciting to riot at the 1968

Democratic National Convention. Hoffman was a self-identified Jewish

Road Warrior and communo-anarchist. Hoffman became a symbol of youth

rebellion and radical activism during the 1970’s. He later committed

suicide in 1989. Cohen will reportedly get around $6 million for the

film.

Pois é. Tédio total depois da escola.06 E sem uma nostalgia gostosa que eu tenho.

Não menosprezando o cara, OBVIAMENTE. Gostei da maioria dos filmes dele que vi, logo ele é bom para mim. Só não gosto de ver diretores mudando drasticamente seus estilos descompromissados a outros metido a sério. Robert Zemeckis fez isso em Beowulf e deu a merda. E Spielberg já mostrou que não dá conta do recado em Amistad.

Claro, então Munique e A Lista de Schindler são inexistentes...

 

Ah é, ainda esqueci do Ryan que o gustavo citou agora...

Ryan é aventura e Munique não é nada demais, apenas mais um filme panfletário para entrar para a galeria (junto com Boa Noite e Boa Sorte, Syriana e outros que tentam se passar por relevantes mas são facilmente esquecidos). Não vi A Cor Púrpura e me esqueci completamente de A Lista de Schindler.

 

Inquestionável, entretanto, que os maiores acertos dele sejam os típicos sessão da tarde.

Sua opinião não é a única deste mundo, e ela está entre a minoria.

 

A Cor Púrpura, A Lista da Schindler, O Resgate do Soldado Ryan e Munique são exemplares bem-sucedidos - seja de público ou crítica, às vezes ambos - da vertente mais dramática de Spielberg. Portanto, não procede que ele não dê conta de qualquer recado que seja, pois há muito a se considerar além da decepção de Amistad.

Bernardo se você não assistiu A Cor Púrpura pode ir parando... e outra, ninguém esquece, muito menos completamente de A Lista de Schindler. No mais acho que muito cedo para tecer qualquer tipo de comentário, se fosse outro diretor esse filme sequer seria citado, sinal de que Spielberg NÃO é só um diretor de sessão da tarde. Acho que ele tem um timing perfeito para descobrir a criança que mora dentro de cada um. Vide AI...

Não é de meu interesse se eu sou a minoria. Mesmo que eu fosse a maioria eu não me apoiaria em tal fato. Tbm não é de meu interesse se esses filmes foram bem-sucedidos em público e crítica (e essa distinção já deixou de existir há muito tempo).

 

Sobre o restante, digo-lhe o mesmo que vc disse no começo do seu post (pra facilitar: o que está destacado)... 

 

==================================================

 

Nacka, realmente foi um exagero sobre Schindler, mas não retiro o que disse sobre Ryan e Munique. E eu não disse que Spielberg é só sessão da tarde, apenas que seus melhores filmes cabem nessa seção. Sou indirente quanto a esse diretor e ainda mais com Sacha Baron Cohen e um roteirista de séries, realmente não consigo ver nada produtivo nesse filme.

É claro que é do seu interesse, pois se trata de outra evidência (esta, sim, inquestionável) que invalida seus apontamentos equivocados no seu primeiro post que quotei.

 

E é lógico que a referida distinção segue existindo: Zodíaco e Grindhouse foram dois dos exemplos mais chamativos, só para se restringir a 2007.

 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Agora o próprio CEC atualizou sua página sobre TTOTC7 com a escalação de Cohen, só que parece não haver certeza em relação aos fatos (em outro site de notícias, foi dito que o Sunday Times não é uma fonte das mais confiáveis).

 

Sacha Baron Cohen teria sido escalado para drama de Spielberg

- 31/12/2007 09:34

 

sachabaroncohen_03.jpgO jornal The Sunday Times informou que Sacha Baron Cohen (Borat!) teria sido escalado para participar do drama The Trial of the Chicago 7, que será dirigido por Steven Spielberg.

 

 

 

Caso

a informação seja mesmo verdadeira, o ator vai interpretar

Abbie Hoffman, integrante do grupo que foi a julgamento por

participar da manifestação contra a guerra do Vietnã, durante uma festa do

partido Democrata, em 1968. Os manifestantes jogaram tijolos contra o local e a

polícia reagiu com gás lacrimogêneo, enquanto o centro de Chicago pegava fogo.

O que? O fato de outros gostarem invalidam meu gosto?06

 

Nada a ver. Leia de novo o que escrevi.

 

O problema não é seu gosto. Ao contrário de alguns neste fórum, respeito o gosto alheio, mesmo que discorde. O problema é que você não escreveu se referindo ao seu gosto, e sim como se a sua opinião fosse a única que existisse, o que é uma inverdade.

E agora, como se enroscou na própria teia que armou, nega com toda essa pose de ingênuo.

Eu achei que já havia lhe explicado em nossa última discussão que meus posts são estritamente pessoais. Achava ser desnecessário pôr expressões como "em minha opinião", "para mim", etc., etc., etc. Ou vc se esqueceu ou continua, sabe-se lá porque, agindo como se não tivesse lido.

Pois não parece que vc respeita. Citar público e crítica como se eles fossem irretocáveis, certamente não é.

Matéria do fansite SpielbergFilms.com - não adiciona muita coisa nova ao que já foi divulgado, mas oferece um bom histórico do projeto.

E mais: há um link para o site da Variety onde há a duvidosa alegação de que Tony Kushner teria, finalmente, terminado seu roteiro para a adaptação de Team of Rivals, o filme sobre Lincoln. Este, porém, deve ser apenas um mal-entendido, pois há pouco o próprio afirmou que havia atrasado por causa de profundas pesquisas às quais teve que proceder e Spielberg confirmou que ele está parado devido à greve.

'Trial of the Chicago 7' up next for Spielberg

 

It's been over two years since Steven Spielberg released a film he

directed to theaters, and while the time may have been tough on anxious

fans, the wait will soon prove well worth it. With the New Year upon

us, 2008 is already looking to be a landmark year in Spielberg's

career. May 22 brings the reemergence of one of Spielberg's most

beloved series and characters with the return of Indiana Jones in

"Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull." Spielberg is hard

at work on post-production for the film, with less than four months to

go until the film's worldwide release.

 

If

that weren't enough to make Spielberg's fans' year (hell, decade),

signs are pointing to the fact that 2008 may likely hold another

one-two punch that Spielberg is rightly famous for. With future

projects like "Tintin," "Lincoln" and "Interstellar" causing lots of

buzz over the last couple of years, the possibilities of works to

follow "Crystal Skull" are very intriguing. As always, which project

Spielberg will settle on as his next has been up in the air, publicly

at least, but many concrete signs are pointing to a dark horse only

recently revealed as a future Spielberg film.

 

Variety first reported

that Spielberg and screenwriter Aaron Sorkin were collaborating on a

project about the tumultuous 1968 Democratic Convention protests, and

more specifically, the subsequent legal proceedings in which eight

protesters were put on trial for allegedly inciting riots against the

Chicago police. Back in July, the trade reported that Spielberg and

producers Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald ("Catch Me If You Can")

had been "developing the project with Sorkin for some time."

 

Since

July, any indication of progress on "Chicago 7" had grown utterly cold

in the press, but right before the end of the year, three unlikely

sources have brought some very interesting information to light.

 

First, a brief bit of back story.

 

Sorkin currently has a brand new play running on Broadway entitled "The Farnsworth Invention" (see our previous coverage

on the play). Steven Spielberg served as a producer and investor on the

show about the invention of television and the subsequent battle

between young inventor Philo Farnsworth and David Sarnoff and RCA, who

ultimately stole Farnsworth's innovation.

 

Both Spielberg and

Sorkin attended the opening of "The Farnsworth Invention" on Broadway,

where they spoke to theater press about their work on "Farnsworth" and

future collaborations separately.

 

Without citing the prior revelation about "Chicago 7," Spielberg generically told Broadway World that he is "hoping to some day direct a movie that [sorkin'] writes, sooner than later."

 

That very same night, Sorkin independently told Playbill that he was indeed working on a DreamWorks film.

 

"I'm

in the middle of writing a script for a movie that's supposed to start

shooting the end of March, about the trial of the Chicago Seven."

 

Sorkin

said that the project hangs on the resolution of the current Writers

Guild strike, as with so much in Hollywood does at the moment, but it

doesn't take a Philo Farnsworth to read the plainly clear schematics.

If the WGA strike is resolved in time, "The Trial of the Chicago 7"

will go in front of cameras starting this March as Steven Spielberg's

follow up to "Crystal Skull."

 

As if this news wasn't thrilling

enough, the end of the month brought further talk about the project

from the British press via the Times Online. The following should be

considered hearsay at this time, given the lack of any official

confirmation (in a follow-up to the Times' info, Variety reported that

DreamWorks officials refused to confirm or deny the news).

 

The Times reported earlier this week that Spielberg had already cast his lead for "Chicago 7" with a surprising and incredibly exciting

actor: comedian Sacha Baron Cohen, famed for his character of Borat. If

the reports prove accurate, Baron Cohen will essay the film's lead as

charismatic counterculture figurehead Abbie Hoffman, one of the trial's

eight original defendants. Considering the intelligence, deft reading

of human character and obvious ability to literally disappear into his

characters that Baron Cohen possesses, expect nothing less than

brilliance should the comedian make the move into dramatic performance,

especially in collaboration with Steven Spielberg.

 

According to

the Times, Spielberg "persuaded" Baron Cohen to join the project that

would see the celebrated comedian taking on his first proper dramatic

role. (The part should still offer plenty of room for the comedic and

theatrical alongside the

gravitas, given Hoffman's character and actions during the trial.)

Baron Cohen is currently appearing in DreamWorks' "Sweeney Todd," now

in theaters. Previously, Baron Cohen was developing a remake of the

French comedy "Le Diner de Cons" as "Dinner for Schmucks" for the

studio along with Parkes and MacDonald.

 

After and perhaps

despite all this great news and potential casting surrounding "Chicago

7," questions will certainly spark with Spielberg fans. Where does this

leave other touted future projects at this point? Even well into last

year, it looked very likely that Spielberg's adaptation of the book

"Team of Rivals" for his Lincoln biopic would likely be his next

picture. Both Liam Neeson and Sally Field have already been officially

announced as cast headliners, although the project did hit a slight

delay when screenwriter Tony Kushner ("Munich") delayed the screenplay

due to heavy research into his subject -- never a bad thing. Just

today, Variety claims

that Kushner has delivered his screenplay, although Kushner's last

pre-strike word was that he was still working on his draft. Unless the

strike and any work that Sorkin would have to complete for the proposed

March commencement on "Chicago 7" get in the way, however, it would

seem that "Lincoln" will come sometime in the future.†

 

On to the "Tintin" project, DreamWorks has indeed already officially announced

the three film series that Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson will

collaborate on, with each filmmaker directing one of the three films (a

third director is yet to be announced). Consistent reports place

production on "Tintin" squarely for commencement this September, with

allegedly no more than a month's work of motion capture work on stage

for each director/film. Of course pictures like "Tintin" are made

largely after the initial work is shot on the mo-cap stages with the

actors, so Spielberg's work will be cut out for him for quite some time

following September.

 

As for "Interstellar," it's quite possible

that the project could still be some time off. When SpielbergFilms.com

talked with Spielberg in the summer of 2006, he said he was still "just

at the beginning of the process" on the project. A writer, Jonathan

Nolan ("The Dark Knight") was hired that year, so the property has been

in development for some time, but it's likely further down the queue

than the aforementioned projects.

 

Despite all this solid

evidence, as any Spielberg fan should know quite well, nothing is

concrete until the film is loaded in the camera and Spielberg calls

action. With so many incredible projects ahead of him, and so many

factors and logistics to juggle -- chief amongst them the strike

currently restricting work in the industry -- expect that anything

could change at any point. At this writing, however, we're betting that

fans will be thrilling to "Crystal Skull" this summer, followed by

"Chicago 7," perhaps by no later than this December. Production will

begin on "Tintin" late this year, although DreamWorks has yet to detail

how they will roll out the three pictures, and whether or not

Spielberg's film will be the first, second or third release of the

series.

 

From there, the production and releases of "Lincoln,"

"Interstellar," and yet untold projects lie ahead. If you've been

reading our site over the last six-plus years, you've heard it before,

but it always bears repeating: It's a damned exciting time to be a

Steven Spielberg fan! Welcome to 2008. It's going to be a great year.

Kevin Spacey, Will Smith e Philip Seymour Hoffman: os próximos no elenco após Sacha Baron Cohen?

 

É uma possibilidade alertada pela Variety.

Chicago Seven Next For Spielberg? Casting Choices Revealed!

 

 

por: Peter Sciretta

 

 

 

 

 

 

Steven%20SpielbergA couple days ago (last year even) it was reported that Sacha Baron Cohen had been cast as Abbie Hoffman in Steven Spielberg’s The Trial of the Chicago Seven.

I like many other movie journalists wondered when Speilberg was going

to find the time for this project with Tintin, Lincoln and Interstellar

on his plate. Jim Windolf mentions in the new Indiana Jones Vanity Fair article

that Spielberg is hoping to direct Chicago Seven next, and follow up

with Lincoln. I assume this means that Jackson, not Spielberg, will be

directing the first Tintin film.

Windolf also got a glance at a table of headshots of actors under

consideration for the film. The list of big name actors includes: Will

Smith, Taye Diggs, Adam Arkin, Kevin Spacey, Sacha Baron Cohen, Philip

Seymour Hoffman (as William Kunstler). Smith and Diggs are likely in

contention for the part.

Reportagem mais completa do Obsessed with Film (baseada no texto do Coming Soon.net, que por sua vez teve sua fonte na Vanity Fair), que não deixa de ressaltar que não há nada oficialmente anunciado nem confirmado até o presente momento - e o fansite SpielbergFilms.com joga mais uma possibilidade à lista de rumores: que o filme será rodado em... Chicago.

 

Has Spielberg summoned Smith' date=' Spacey & Hoffman for his TRIAL?

 

Are

Will Smith, Phillip Seymour Hoffman and Kevin Spacey about to join the

probably already cast Sacha Baron Cohen in Steven Spielberg’s post-INDY

movie THE TRIAL OF THE CHICAGO 7, a film which could begin shooting as

early as March?

That’s what Vanity Fair

would have us believe anyway. These are the names that they allegedly

saw on the desk of Spielberg in relationship to actors the legendary

director is interested in for his historical drama…

Will Smith

Will%20Smith

Taye Diggs

Taye%20Diggs

Adam Arkin

Adam%20Arkin

Kevin Spacey

kevin%20spacey

and heavily rumored elsewhere…

Sacha Baron Cohen (who the British press claim has accepted a $6 million offer to play Abbie Hoffman as we spoke about here)

Phillip Seymour Hoffman (as William Kunstler)

 

William%20Kunstler

 

Phillip%20Seymour%20Hoffman

Kunstler (pictured above in his later days) was an American civil

rights activist and a self proclaimed ‘radical lawyer’ who defended the

CHICAGO 7 against charges of conspiring to incite riots in Chicago

during the 1968 Democratic National Convention.

Hoffman would seem ideal for this role, instantly commanding that

authorative lawyer feel and a CV full of amazing work, three of which

he gave us this year alone with THE SAVAGES, BEFORE THE DEVIL KNOWS

YOUR’E DEAD and CHARLIE WILSON’S WAR.

If Spielberg could secure Will Smith and Kevin Spacey (I believe

Riggs and Arkin are competing for the same parts as those two

respectively) along with Hoffman and Cohen, then this would be one of

the most diverse and interesting casts a film of his has seen in a long

time.

I really hope this is Spielberg’s next movie and furthering the

direction he took with his most awesome flick in years with MUNICH. I

can’t help but feel sorry for Liam Neeson though and his long awaited

stint as LINCOLN biopic. Maybe Spielberg should let someone else give

that a go rather than continuing to mess him about?

Desculpem pelo flood, mas pelo menos há um longo espaço entre as postagens.

 

Mais boatos referentes ao casting surgiram:

 

FONTE: OBSESSED WITH FILM

 

RUMOR: Hanks & Daniels in CHICAGO 7?

 

No actor is officially locked in for Steven Spielberg’s TRIAL OF THE CHICAGO 7 movie despite casting rumors that could probably fill two adaptations and the truth is at this point we don’t know for 100% that this will be Spielberg’s next picture.

Though I’m pretty sure it will be but I’m just basically trying to

warn you about taking any of theses rumors as absolute gospel.

CHUD

are reporting that Spielberg has set his eyes on Jeff Daniels and Colin

Hanks for supporting roles in his retelling of the anti-Vietnam War

activists arrested at the 1968 Democratic Convention. Daniels would

play Dave Dellinger, one of the older members of the group with Hanks

playing Rennie Davis, an SDS activist who was more interested in a

political rather than social change.

hanks-daniels.jpg

Neither Daniels or Hanks have ever worked with Spielberg in the past

(though Hanks’ father obviously has numerous times) and you have to

believe they would both sign on in a heartbeat to do a Spielberg movie.

The site also claim that Sacha Baron Cohen is not 100% locked for

the role of Abbie Hoffman just yet and a crunch time will have to come

soon over his involvement as Spielberg wants this to roll before the

DGA/SGA strike.

If the rumors are to be believed, the Chicago 7 would be made up of

Sacha Baron Cohen, Will Smith or Taye Diggs (we believe they are both

up for Bobby Seale role), Kevin Spacey, Jeff Daniels, Adam Arkin, Colin Hanks.. with Phillip Seymour Hoffman as defense attorney William Kuntsler.

This would leave 2 more from the trial to be cast (there was

actually 8), a judge, two prosecutors and one more defence attorney…

with the rest of the supporting cast needed. That’s depending on

whether all these rumors are true of course which if they are, that’s

one hell of a REALLY strong cast.

Exclusivo: Steven Spielberg pode deixar The Trial of the Chicago Seven

Falta confirmação, mas duas fontes dizem que filme perdeu seu diretor

Um dos projetos mais legais que Steven Spielberg tinha pela frente, The Trial of the Chicago Seven, pode ter sido suspenso. Segundo nossos parceiros em Los Angeles, o Collider, duas fontes confirmaram que o diretor deixou o filme.

Não há ainda informação sobre o motivo; Chicago Seven parecia um projeto interessante por conta do elenco que prometia reunir, nomes como Will Smith, Sacha Baron Cohen, Kevin Spacey e Philip Seymour Hoffman, entre outros.

Ao Omelete, Smith disse que Spielberg lhe pedira para separar um espaço na agenda para o projeto. Com a possível saída de Spielberg - que seria o grande chamariz de astros no filme - fica difícil saber se Will Smith seguiria interessado.

Na história, os tais Sete de Chicago resolveram em 1968 protestar contra a Guerra do Vietnã na Convenção Nacional do Partido Democrata e acabaram presos por incitar uma revolta popular. O julgamento dos sete virou um marco da contracultura nos EUA

A DreamWorks contratou em julho passado Aaron Sorkin - produtor e roteirista da série The West Wing - para escrever o filme, que além de dirigir Spielberg produziria. Vamos aguardar mais notícias por enquanto...
