More on Breaking Dawn Script

Well she doesn't like Twilight much, but she sure gets the inside scoop on everything awesome.... Here is some more updates from Lainey Gossip based on the Breaking Dawn Intell she has.

Love her or Hate her - I don't care (and neither does she) - - - SHE ALWAYS has the goods!!

Lainey Gossip writes:

Warning: spoilers.

Bella gives birth to the baby with the dumb name. She dies. As in she’s done with her human form and the vampire juice starts working but on the outside she looks like a corpse. Everyone is sad. Jacob is sad. He goes off and spends some sad time on his own. Then he comes back because he has to kill the thing with the stupid name. As soon as he lays eyes on her, the rest of the world disappears. It’s a tunnel linking them together. And he sees her grow, he sees her future – she’s 2, 4, she’s 6, she’s 10, she’s a teenager, and then she’s a woman, and this is when he knows he’s in love. It actually reads very well and not as lame and creepy as it does in the book; a very strong scene, if allowed to unravel the way it does on the page.

While all this is happening, Edward is inconsolable over Bella. Then he hears Jacob’s thoughts, realises Jacob has, um, imprinted on his newborn daughter. So they throw down and Edward wails on Jacob and Jacob has to eat it because he’s all weak and fragile from the imprint process.

Then the vampire juices start working inside Bella. Move into her consciousness, excruciating pain, internal turmoil, then move out, quick transition, to her eyes, they open, RED. End. Credits. Then after the credits there’s a scene with the Volturi and Aro finding out that she was turned and then he’s all like – I want that bitch. Real end part 1.

Lautner has yet to shoot these scenes as right now this week in Louisiana, only Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson are required. They are filming honeymoon interiors. He’s feeling badly about her bruises, and she’s locked in the bathroom, then he realises she’s sick, and then they both realise she’s pregnant.

More details to come about the second part and production.

Access Hollywood - Eclipse dvd Special Features

The Eagle Trailer

I love Channing Tatum - - - this movie looks good, but mostly because he is in it

HARRY POTTER and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 Review

I went and saw Harry Potter and the Deathyl Hallows at midnight, because, let's face it, all real fans go at midnight ;)

Overall, I LOVED IT!

I laughed, I cried, I jumped in my seat, there was just so much greatness in this movie.

They split it at the exact moment that they should have. I had lost all track of time and just started recovering from an emotional part in the film when BAM something happened and I froze knowing it was the end - BAM credits... gah!! I want More!!!

Are they seriously going to make us wait for Part 2? Completely unfair!

I have so much more to say but there will be spoilers so do not read on unless you have seen the movie...


OK, let's get into specifics...

First, the chemistry is amazing. At this point, you would expect so, but Harry, Ron, Hermoine are so great together, and Rupert Grint made me laugh and connect... I felt his emotions, which is shocking! I can't believe how old they are, I mean you can see Daniel Radcliffe's 5 o'clock shadow! It's creepy watching the old films, they were such babies and now... they are old....

I wasn't comfortable with Harry and Hermoine parts. First of all, when Ron leaves, Hermoinei s sad. Harry tries to cheer her up and it seems awkward at first. They get close, the prepare to dance, it's almost too intimate.... then, luckily, Harry starts to shimmy and it immediately becomes funny and friendly and perfect. I get they are close, but ROn's fear that they are "closer" than just friends is perpetuated inthe viewers eyes by about 5 seconds of "oh my god no..."

Later, (again if you haven't seen it I will make this broad enough to not spoil it, but if you have seen it you know exactly what I am talking about).... there is a "vision" Ron has that involves Harry and Hermoine and they are all sparkly and creepy and that entire clip was just so wrong. I felt sick ha ha. I get it's purpose, but it was really uncomfortable to watch. I mean everyone sees Harry and Hermoine as sibling like and so any hints at romance seems gross right?

Anyone else?

I loved the effects, the flashbacks, I am anxious to see it on IMAX, I feel that like Eclipse, it won't fair as well on IMAX because of the fast flashes and action. This may make it difficult to catch everything on such a large screen, however, as you will know if you follow my blog and read my Eclipse IMAX review, I love sceneic landscapes on IMAX and Deathly Hallows has quite a few of these scenes which will play out very beautifully on IMAX i think!

I will see IMAX next weekend after going to the Harry Potter Exhbition in Seattle *squee*

OK, more bits and pieces from me...

I wanted more Draco and more Snape. Part 2.... can't wait!

It was strange seeing so much Voldemort. I guess at this stage, we need do, but he was talking and so much more human-like... which, again, is good as far as plot and so on, but it just took me a moment to adjust.

Loved seeing the photo of Jamie Campbell Bower as Gellert Grindelwald. Can't wait for more.

Clémence Poésy as Fleur DelaCour was cool because I FINALLY put two and two together and realized she was Eva from Gossip Girl!

Loved Harmoine's wardrobe.

Enjoyed the subtle changes int he film to keep the movie going, mostly minor, mostly won't effect overall plot. As you may recall from my Dear John Review, when books to movies make stupid changes I flip out... these changes are not drastic and they work well.

I loved the PolyJuice (the Potion that you drink to look like someone else) It was used well in the opening of the film, which was hilarious to see all the Harry's... half naked ha ha and again when the three go into the Minsitry. I especially loved Ron's kiss - - - that's all I will say.

The Weasly Twins are awesome, always and awesome meeting Bill Weasley finally...

I liked that they clearly explained the Deathly Hallows and told the story of the Three Brothers. I do wish they got into the Horcruxes a bit more but I guess that focus will be in the next part.

The Patronus was awesome and I imagine they will do a flash back to that scene when it is addressed in Part 2 if you know what I am saying ;)

What am I missing??? So much greatness!!

What did you all think?

I can't wait to see it again!!!

Film Ratings, Violence, Nudity, Blue Valentine, Changing a Culture... My Mumblings...

There are three films I wante to see at NOFF (Mew Orleans Film Festival) in October. Welcolme to the Riley's, 127 Hours and Blue Valentine (ok 4, Black Swan but I don't think it finally got added to the list) Sadly, I didn't get to see them all because I was headed to Vegas for my 30th birthday and the timing overlapped.

There has been good buzz about all these movies, but one that has been a hot topic lately is Blue Valentine staring Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams. The MPAA has given it a NC17 rating because of a particular love scene which they deem to be inapproporiate.

This idea of ratings is always of interest to me because, for one, I think the MPAA does a shitty job of it in many cases. I have gone into a movie with my daughter and left having to explain a number of things I wouldn't have wanted to discuss to a 7 year old, just yet.

I find in American culture, violence, especially against women, is too accepted in film, whereas nudity is not. Somehow blowing up someone's head is ok, but boobs are not? What is so wrong about sensuality but ok with torturous violence?

In Canada, however, nudity is far more accepted, in fact, you can catch it on regular cable late evenings, whereas violence is less acceptable. There is, in particular, rules against showing violence against women. So lot's of boobs and less blowing up of body parts.

In Europe, similar to Canada, there is more acceptance in showing nudity, there are commercials for skin lotion that hage nude women demonstrating!


@Larry411 tweeted press release where TWC Co-Chair Harvey Weinstein discusses the issue:

“While we respect the MPAA, I think we can all agree that we are living with an outdated ratings system that gives torture porn, horror and ultraviolent films the same rating as films with so-called inappropriate language,” explains Weinstein.

I could not agree more!!!

I have not seen Blue Valentine yet, but I know quite a few that have and they agree that an NC17 seems harsh. Furthermore, those involved in the film disagree with the rating and are fighting it. The debate (and the rating) is based on one love scene.

BLUE VALENTINE, starring Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams, in a film already acclaimed by critics, tells the honest and personal story of a troubled marriage, and yet apparently drew an NC-17 due to one scene, a sexually intimate sequence between a married couple trying to repair their broken relationship

Lainey writes:

So you know about this business with the MPAA. Blue Valentine has been given an NC17 rating because of a sex scene between a married couple that they feel is too real. Not in the porn sense or anything, I mean it’s not like you can study her labia, but these people, they share an intense, and frustrating, and very emotionally authentic moment. This is apparently much more offensive than seeing a woman violated in an action film.

The Weinstein Company is appealing the decision. In support of the appeal, the film’s two leads have offered their comments. Read Ryan Gosling’s position, and then try to convince me you can still stand up.

“You have to question a cinematic culture which preaches artistic expression, and yet would support a decision that is clearly a product of a patriarchy-dominant society, which tries to control how women are depicted on screen. The MPAA is okay supporting scenes that portray women in scenarios of sexual torture and violence for entertainment purposes, but they are trying to force us to look away from a scene that shows a woman in a sexual scenario, which is both complicit and complex. It’s misogynistic in nature to try and control a woman’s sexual presentation of self. I consider this an issue that is bigger than this film.”

Please. How many other men can turn you on in a WRITTEN STATEMENT?

Here’s what Michelle Williams had to say:

“The MPAA’s decision on Blue Valentine unmasks a taboo in our culture, that an honest portrayal of a relationship is more threatening than a sensationalized one. Mainstream films often depict sex and violence in a manner that is disturbing and very far from reality. Yet, the MPAA regularly awards these films with a more audience friendly rating, enabling our culture’s desensitization to violence, rape, torture and brutality. Our film does not depict any of these attributes. It’s simply a candid look at the difficulties couples face in sustaining their relationships over time. Blue Valentine opens a door for couples to have a dialogue about the everyday realities of many relationships. This film was made in the spirit of love, honesty and intimacy. I hope that the MPAA will hear our pleas and reconsider their decision.”

First, I agree, Gosling makes me hot with written words, spoken words, a smile, a still photo, gah!

Second, I hope they examine this rating (and all ratings for that matter) and resolve it.

There needs to be clearer guidelines on the ratings. I think if they can rate a love scene NC17 and beating up a woman PG-13 then there is a serious issue in the system!

Ultimately, I will watch what I want, regardless of the rating, but there are many who do not and I think the rating system should be a more accurate depiction of the film's content.

Moreover, I think re-examining socities views and perspective on what is acceptable and what is not should be a more important goal, but clearly this task is larger than one movie or one lawsuit. It is a change in culture and an attempt to eliminate or lessen the desensitization society experiences because of the overload of violence and aggression in film.

Just Me?

Feel free to comment....

Speaking American with the Cast of Harry Potter

HARRY POTTER and the Deathly Hallows Part 1

Angry Chef Scott is Hot

Do you watch Hell's Kitchen?

Sabrina has to be one of the most annoying characters ever and I am so glad she is gone. I would not be upset to see Trevor and Russell go - - I don't like Gail much so it's brows or Nona...


sad season!

but most important reason I watch....... Chef Scott!

He is hot and tonight he yelled at Trevor and I was like woah yea baby!

Love me some Chef Scott - - for realz!

The Palin's

The Palin's piss people off apparently. One guy shot his tv which led to a 15 hou stand off because he was mad Bristol Palin was so successful on DWTS. Meanwhile Bristol and her sister Willow had a facebook war with people who were "dissing" their mom's new show.

Reality World writes:

"Sarah Palin's Alaska, is failing so hard right now," Tre wrote on Facebook.

While mild, the "negative comment" quickly initiated a fierce response from the Palin sisters.

"You just run your mouth just so you can get a reaction. You're a typical s--t talker -- talking s--t because you have nothing else going for you," Bristol wrote.

Willow then fired back at Tre with even more frustration.

"Haha you're so gay. I have no idea who you are. But what I've seen pictures of, you're disgusting... my sister had a kid and is still hot," Willow boasted.

"Tre, [shut the f--k up]. You're such a f--got... quit talking s--t about my family."

Additional Facebook users and possible classmates of the Palin sisters later joined the argument expressing their opinions, but Bristol and Willow refused to back down.

"Sorry that you guys are all jealous of my families' success and you guys aren't going to go anywhere with your lives," Willow wrote.

Seems the Palin's have numerous issues, and to think Sarah Palin wants to be President? wow!

Breaking Dawn filming starts in Baton Rouge

When I went to Baton Rouge in October I went to Celtic Studios to see a bit of where Breaking Dawn would film. I spoke to the two heads of security, one who is interviewed below. The news is similar to what I was told and is not surprising. I am glad we got lot's of photos and news from Brazil, because I fear Baton Rouge will be tough seeing as it is all studio.

Studio security is always tight, but this is intense...

Scene Louisiana reports similar news:
“We have increased our number of full-time security personnel from six to twenty-four in the last week,” says Achee. “That’s just the beginning of the ramp-up. We’ll be adding two to four more every week.” Rather than hire harmless security guards, these new additions are mostly veterans of Louisiana police forces and sheriff’s departments.

In addition to the direct hires, another twenty man force has been added as well. “So, we’ll have on property at all times a forty-eight man force. We are not taking security on this property lightly,” Achee says.


The high profile project also brings its own high profile security. In addition to the personal body guards employed by stars Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner, the production itself employs additional security. “The security that the production has brought doubles our own force,” says Achee.

”We have a law on the books, State criminal statute 1462.4. If you get charged with that offense, it’s a felony. This ain’t no misdemeanor.”

That statute of Louisiana’s criminal law states that, “Unauthorized entry of a place of business is the intentional entry by a person without authority into any structure or onto any premises, belonging to another, that is completely enclosed by any type of physical barrier that is at least six feet in height and used in whole or in part as a place of business.” Those convicted of felony trespass on the studio lot are subject to imprisonment at hard labor for up to six years and a fine of up to $1000.

“We will absolutely prosecute every person who trespasses,” says Achee. “There have been six who trespassed before and they have all been caught.” When asked how he knew only six had trespassed before, Achee’s answer came quick: “Security cameras. The property is covered with high definition security cameras. A camera mounted on the [main building] can capture the license plate of a car all the way on the other side of the property.” The security camera system video is stored to a source that is backed up offsite. Additionally, the system has a back-up power supply that allows it to continue operating in the event of a power failure.

Achee and his crew of security officers are authorized to detain any trespassers by force until local law enforcement arrives to complete the felony arrest. We asked him if he planned on seeing any young teenage girls arrested, Achee said, “Absolutely. I think of this place as a home. You wouldn’t want somebody trespassing in your home, and if you did, you’d defend yourself. That’s what we’re doing here, it doesn’t matter who it is.”

In closing, when we asked how confident he was that there would be no issues for the productions under his care at Raleigh Studios, Achee’s answer was clear. ”I used to run security for Elvis,” he says. “I’m confident.”

This seems intense eh? Luckily Vancouver is my stomping grounds and has exterior sets that are easily accessible to view from public locations.... that is how I had success with the previous two movies and hope to again with the parts of Breaking Dawn that will film here.


For those of you in Baton Rouge, or hoping to go - - - I suggest Perkins Rowe. Some of the cast have been spotted there and when I was there we walked through to check it out because a birdie told me there were some condo's there that the cast were staying at....

Plus there are some great shopping spots and restaurants!!!

In other Breaking Dawn Baton Rouge possible news, a friend of mine who lives there sent me this email:
I followed some signs today to an area close to my house. They said UPS. Untitled something I'm sure. I found the crew parking at the dead end of a road that continued onto a private drive. This property actually backs up to The River. I know there are other movies being filmed here, but I know a girl who lives on the private property and she confirmed it was TSBD. Don't know if this is B unit or what because I have seen nothing of the actors returning to BR. I wonder what they could be filming by the river?? Maybe when Bella jumps across it?? In that case I guess it would be a stunt woman.

There was alot of security in the area. I have included a couple of pics, nothing exciting though. I'll keep in touch.


Who knows if the girl who lives on that street has accurate information or not but if so, it seems they are doing some exterior stunt work in Baton Rouge, though I really did think that it was all studio in Louisiana... I could very well be wrong.

Time will tell, hopefully the news keeps pouring in....

Can't wait for Vancouver Breaking Dawn - - - though, to be honest, it stresses me out also... so many people, and gossip, and drama...

I hope I can just fly by solo and quiet and get some cool photos and info to share with blog readers :)

Anne Hathaway saves Jake Gyllenhaal from Taylor Swift Question

I can't believe they are together, it somehow seems - - - wrong - - - I still think of lil Taylor Swift as - - - well - - - 12teen... despite her dating Taylor Lautner, who is younger than her but seemingly "old enough for me" bahahaha - - - moving on....

Here's what went down (PS Anne Hathaway rules!)

Anne Hathaway helped co-star Jake Gyllenhaal dodge an awkward question about his alleged romance with Taylor Swift at a weekend press conference in New York.

Hathaway and Gyllenhaal, who previously played husband and wife in the 2005 drama "Brokeback Mountain," were talking to reporters Saturday about their new film "Love and Other Drugs" when a journalist inquired about reports claiming Gyllenhaal had recently begun courting country music superstar Swift.

"Hang on, hang on. I have to say something. I have been Jake's on-screen love interest for years," Hathaway jokingly answered for Gyllenhaal, who was sitting beside her at the press conference. "You keep the conversation to me and only me or otherwise I'm going to get nasty! Thank you."

"Don't get 'Ella Enchanted' pissed off," Gyllenhaal added, referring to one of Hathaway's iconic good-girl roles.

"Don't get 'Ella Enchanted' pissed off, and I'm not obedient," the actress echoed.



Glee: Gwyneth Paltrow

Loved it.

Did you see it yet?

She was awesome as a substitute teacher.

The mini glee's were adorable also:

The mash up at the end rocked my world - so much fun!

There was so much goodness, I will cheat and post e online amazing summary...


The Best Way to Start an Episode: Glee just starts off better when it begins with a Sue/Will showdown, don't you think? We're also happy to hear Sue claim her friendship with the Schue "got boring." We agree. The hair jokes are back, ya'll!

Vintage Glee Is Awesome Glee: We love when the show seems to poke fun at itself. All of the jokes about "Journey songs we haven't done yet" were spot on and just awesome. Plus, we got the return of character inner monologues and Sue's diary! This is us scribbling "OUTSTANDING" in our journals. And underlining it.

Fox Broadcasting Speaking of Old-School Glee: We were treated (tortured?) by an appearance from Crazy Terri. While we welcome back Jessalyn Gilsig with open arms, we do not approve of the ex Mrs. Schuester's seductions via vapor rub. May phlegm fill your sinuses for that move, lady!

We Need a Word for Love Triangle Plus Two: Love rhombus? The addition of Holly and Terri just complicates the already complicated Will-Emma-Carl debacle. There were some sparks between our Glee club leader and the hot substitute, who apparently has a heartbroken fiancé somewhere. Bet he's coming back. And the other kind of sparks between Terri and Holly? Brutal, especially when the "I'm never coming back" speech from the off balance ex-wife followed it.

Will and Mike Chang Make an Awesome Duo: Who knew? I guess Ryan Murphy did, because the "Make 'Em Laugh" number was a huge highlight. No easy feat, considering this was an episode full of stellar scenes. We do not mind at all if they do another number together soon. We also don't mind Matt Morrison rocking the scruffy look while he was sick.

Kurt and Blaine Might Be on the Way to Couple Kingdom: At least, we hope so. It's pretty obvious that the world became obsessed with Darren Criss' character pretty much from the very first note of "Teenage Dream," and we hope that seeing Kurt smiling and acting like himself with someone he cares about brings even more Blaine-Kurt shippers. But the cutesy dinner at Breadstix (where else?) was nicely broken up with Mercedes' hallucination. Sometimes little accessories fall out of our mouths, too. Mostly teeny-tiny shoes, though.

Glee Was Just Not Messing Around Tonight: Death threats? Tot cravings? Chicago numbers? The writers of Glee sure threw a lot at us (too many funny quotes makes our brains explode), and ending it with that killer "Umbrella-Singin' In the Rain" mashup was a nice coast to the end. But the most important thing to take away from this episode...Sue is principal?! Oh, yeah. That. Just. Happened.

Breaking Dawn Script Details from Lainey

Lainey Gossip gave some details from the Breaking Dawn script she has allegedly read weeks ago.

I don't know how much or which version or anything but from what she said, she has seen it and I am loving the bits she is giving.

Today she mentioned it further in her weely live blog.

Lainey Gossip writes:

Lainey: Breaking Dawn script details - Spoiler alert, look away if you can't deal. Bella has the baby and drops dead. The Jacob is all sad and leaves. Then he comes back to kill the Evil Thing. Then he lays eyes on it. You see it through his eyes like tunnel vision - she's 2, she's 4, she's 9, she's a teen, she's a woman, and that's when he falls in love. It actually doesn't read creepy at all. It reads not bad. Because ANYTHING IS AN IMPROVEMENT ON STEPHENIE MEYER.

Then Edward's all sad because Bella dies. And he hears Jacob's thoughts. And he beats the sh-t out of Jacob. Jacob doesn't fight back because he's a weak and sh-t from imprinting.

(fans freak over "Bella dying" um have you read the book?)

she dies as a human. Then at the end of the movie, you feel her suffering and the burning and smash to her eyes, they open red. Credits. Then at the end of the credits.. Volturi Scene. Michael Sheen's character, I cant remember his name, gets word that Bella is a vampire and he's all like - I want her. Then it's over.

[Via Lainey Gossip]



OK i waid earlier that I didn't like the playing chess, because that is so not reality - I would NOT be playing chess on my honeymoon with Edward, this is more what I would be doing.... rawr... and can I just say....


Burlesque Premiere

Cam & Xtina - - - Burlesque Premiere - - - I don't care how crappy reviews are for this movie, I want to see it - - - Cam is hot, Cher is iconic and Christina is - - - well - - - whatever!

[Via Twifans]

Tom Felton is top Harry Potter Hottie!?

I am not surprised, I mean Rob had a pretty minor role, and to be honest, I've crushed on Draco Malfoy Shhhhhh

Edward & Bella play chess during Breaking Dawn honeymoon?

So, you are on a honeymoon with the hottest vampire (or one of, depending on your taste) in the world... and you play chess? um.... BRING ON THE FEATHERS!!!


Red Riding Hood Trailer and interview with Catherine Hardwicke

LA Times writes:

Catherine Hardwicke understands impetuous teen heroines the way George Lucas reverse-engineers robot sidekicks. In March, the director of “Twilight” and “Thirteen” will unleash her newest troublemaker upon the world with a dark, sensuous spin on “Red Riding Hood.” Hardwicke’s trailer for “Red Riding Hood,” which stars Amanda Seyfried in the title role, has just premiered on Hero Complex writer Rebecca Keegan spoke to Hardwicke about modernizing the fairy tale, building her own medieval world and casting (as Little Red’s heartthrob) the actor who almost played Edward in “Twilight.”

Interview with Catherine Hardwicke after the cut...


RK: This red riding hood isn’t so little. She’s a young woman, apparently caught in a love triangle. Where did the idea of sexing up this folk tale originate?

CH: It came from Leonardo DiCaprio. He came up with the idea, “Wouldn’t it be cool to do a Gothic twist on Red Riding Hood, with the wolf being a werewolf, and just have a cool, sexy romantic thriller?” His company, Appian Way, commissioned David Leslie Johnson who wrote “Orphan” with them to write the screenplay.

RK: Where did you shoot this?

CH: Vancouver. It’s mostly a stage build. We had to build the village from scratch. It’s our own created world. Our village has very muscular, heavy timber construction. All the buildings are raised up on stilts and they have spikes because they’ve lived in fear, and paranoia for decades as they’ve been menaced by this wolf.

RK: After making “Twilight,” where fans felt such ownership over the story, is this a film in which you can create your own visual world?

CH: I think so. There’s so many versions of Red Riding Hood. It goes back 700 years. It’s much more open to interpretation. At the end of the fairy tale she’s saved by a woodcutter. That’s one of the reasons why we have the houses all out of heavy construction. We stayed true to the oldest telling of the stories in a lot of ways. There’s a great book called [Bruno Bettelheim's] “The Uses of Enchantment,” delving into the meaning and philosophy of fairy tales and why these stories have endured and gotten under our skin. That was very inspiring to me.

RK: Why has the story of Red Riding Hood endured?

CH: The girl in the story, her mother tells her, “Go straight to your grandmother’s house. Don’t dawdle or talk to strangers.” And she stops and picks flowers. She’s getting in touch with her own sensuality and then the wolf comes up and asks where she’s going and she tells him. She unknowingly opens up that door to let the wolf into her life. And then there’s so many interpretations of the red cape and what it symbolizes, from witchcraft to coming of age and sexuality.

RK: The red cape itself is huge and striking. What went into its design?

CH: It’s huge in a few fantasy sequences. But normally when Valerie, Amanda’s character, runs around in the cape, it’s just to the ground. You see that this cape has inspired painters for hundreds of years. We thought it would be interesting if this fabric had been woven with a lot of great care. We had a sewing circle of 14 women in Vancouver get together and embroider all this detail. We also have a very controlled color palette where there’s no other red in the movie except the cape.

RK: What kind of Red Riding Hood does Amanda play?

CH: She’s brave and does stand up to the wolf and stands up to the town elders as people start turning against her. In our story the town has a lot of secrets and lies, which start unraveling. She makes all these discoveries that she has to deal with.

RK: In what era does this film take place?

CH: It’s medieval but we didn’t want to say it’s 1437 southern France. We didn’t want to nail it down that much because it is a fairy tale interpretation.

RK: In Disney’s new film, “Tangled,” Rapunzel is a much more active heroine. She does more than let down her hair. Do you think we need to update our fairy tales for modern audiences?

CH: The Brothers Grimm wrote down most of these fairy tales and they were men. It’s great that people are infusing more life and more energy and a more active nature to the girls in the fairy tales. It probably would have always been that way if we had had our say.

RK: Who are the men competing for Red Riding Hood’s affections?

CH: One of them is Peter, played by Shiloh Fernandez. She feels he is her soul mate, but he’s had more of a troubled past. They love each other but that’s not the way her mother wants Amanda’s life to go. She wants her daughter to have a better life and arranges a marriage with Henry, who’s played by Max Irons, the son of Jeremy Irons. He’s a very striking-looking kid, as is Shiloh, who’s very soulful. Shiloh was my runner-up for Edward in “Twilight” but he and Kristen [Stewart] didn’t have the instant chemistry lock that is now well-known.

RK: There’s a whodunit element to the story. The wolf is a townsperson, right?

CH: It is somebody who lives in the village. The whole town turns against each other when they realize that any of them could be the wolf. This paranoia creeps in. When Gary Oldman arrives he’s almost like Homeland Security, “Turn in your friends if you see anything suspicious.”

RK: Was Amanda already attached when you came on board?

CH: I came on board when it was a first draft. Many things have changed since then. In the first draft the grandmother was a really craggy old grandmother who wanted to teach the girls to embroider and she was always wagging her finger and giving lectures. I’m like, “No, no no, we’re gonna have a hip, sexy grandmother,” and that’s how we got Julie Christie. Amanda was not attached. I fell in love with her when she did a little piece for an autism benefit. This person just reached out and grabbed your heart. I felt like, if she can make this monologue that alive…. Those eyes. That face. She’s just kind of ridiculous looking.

RK: She also, based on the trailer, seems to be a bit naughty.

CH: This Red Riding Hood, really, like the original Red Riding Hood is a bit naughty. Good girls don’t talk to werewolves. She’s kind of wild, she’s coming into her own. Back in medieval times, Victorian repression hadn’t come in yet. People were bawdy and wild and more in touch with their true natures. If you look at the Bosch paintings or Bruegel, you see when people are dancing they’re totally cutting loose. I have a scene that feels like Burning Man, which of course was itself inspired by medieval scenes of burning effigies. In the film, the town feels like they’ve conquered the wolf. They feel justified in celebrating. They build this giant wolf effigy, a huge bonfire, everyone’s dancing like crazy and partying and going wild, so I used the Bosch painting “The Garden of Earthly Delights” as my inspiration for that. We built all the instruments in the Bosch painting, a hurdy gurdy, standing horn pipes, the same blue drums. We commissioned this band from Sweden called Fever Ray. She’s always performing in radical costumes, she’s like the Lady Gaga of Sweden. In our movie she’s wearing a harvest mask with a corn husk face and she’s singing and everybody’s dancing and singing. Of course it all goes to hell soon enough but it’s fun for a while.

RK: How did you get this project greenlit?

CH: Nowadays to get a movie greenlit, you have to make an incredible effort. I made a visual presentation with my own paintings and drawings. I also cut a trailer that gives you the feeling of the music. They want to see, what kind of world are you creating? What’s the vibe? What’s the feel? Do we like that? Can we afford it? You do it on one level to get them excited about the project and then you do have to go and budget it too. I thought this was gonna be an $80-million movie but we had to make it for $42 million. So you take all your big wild ideas and then you figure out the most creative way you can to stretch the dollar.

RK: What’s the song in the trailer?

CH: That’s the song performed at our Burning Man concert. It’s the Swedish band Fever Ray. Karin [Dreijer Andersson], the leader of the band, collaborated with our composer Brian Reitzell to create this song that you see musicians performing live in the movie with the Bosch instruments. I loved it cause it was haunting. I felt like it was ancient, but edgy and modern.
