Re: Contagion

I imagine he'll be attending in Venice? It doesn't seem like he's working everyday on Elysium or if he does it's not an all day thing(based on some twitter postings)but then again it has to be quite sizable since he's in Vancouver for the summer.

Re: Contagion

Agreed - we should compare sources. He really doesn't seem to be working much at all (maybe they're hiding how small his role is?)

Diego Luna has gone from Vancouver from the moment, but may be back. The locations for some Elysium shoots are known for next week, so we may get some photos.

Elysium filming into 2012?

Update - Diego Luna is a long way from finished (and says he could be filming into next year)

Translated from:

"I can not speak much about the movie, but I can assure you I am only here for a few days since I have to go back to Vancouver for the film, where I'll be working until the end of the year, and perhaps even the next."

Re: Contagion

Yeah, I don't get the lack of chat and push for Contagion - with this cast? Bizarre. Maybe they're trying to leave space for pushing Soderbergh's 'girl fighter' movie? Sometimes it seems Soderbergh just gets bored easily and doesn't want to talk about what he's already done.

I don't like the idea that if Contagion fails Matt's political stance may get the blame (at least from the right). It actually seems amazing to me that in spite of numerous attempts of prominent people on the wing to attack him the public response against him has been quite muted. It seems to me that any intelligent person would have to respect Matt, even if they disagree with him.

Do you have any idea if the 'Margaret' cut is Scorcese's version, or how long it is? I read the script and it was awesome, but enormous. It read like a novel. Really hope to have a chance to see the long version one day.

Re: Contagion

No idea which cut of Margaret will be released. Will be amazing if there's a coherent final cut available.

I feel reason plays no argument in the current political debates.

Soderbergh's girl fighter movie's not released until January, but it has received a bigger push. Maybe the Contagion press starts soon (currently it's all about self-promoting Gwyneth).
