In an exciting move for fans of classic films, 20th Century Fox is letting viewers vote on which movies they’ll release on blu-ray. They’re calling the campaign “Voice Your Choice.”
“The Hunger Games” director Gary Ross has declined to direct the film’s sequel “Catching Fire,” according to a new report. Ross decided to instead film a new self-written script that would yield a larger paycheck than the offer he got from Lionsgate and 20th Century Fox.
This isn’t the first time a director has declined to direct subsequent movies in a film franchise. Chris Weitz took over for Catherine Hardwicke in the “Twilight” series, while the “Harry Potter” series had four directors: Chris Columbus, Alfonso Cuaron, Mike Newell and David Yates.
Studio reps have remained mum on who is to replace Gary Ross in the “Hunger Games” sequel. Who do you think would make the perfect director?
The stars of “Modern Family” have begun their salary negotiations with ABC. Will they follow in the “Friends” cast’s footsteps, who earned $1 million per episode during their final season?
Not quite, according to an ABC insider, who says that the actors have banded together — that includes Sofia Vergara, Ed O’Neill, Julie Bowen, Ty Burrell, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Eric Stonestreet — to ask for around $200,000 per episode. This would more than double most of the actors’ per-episode earnings — only O’Neill is currently paid in the six-figure range.
“They realize there’s strength in numbers and it’s the best way to go about it,” the source told E! Online. The insider also said that any salary increases would come from ABC rather than 20th Century Fox.
Do you think the “Modern Family” castmembers will get the raise they’re looking for?
