My guess would be pretty ill informed, but someone at the Augusta Film Office said he thought the budget was $20-25 million. He may just be speculating though. This information hasn't been released.

I saw "First Reformed." It was all right until the end, when I thought it went totally off the rails. I wouldn't recommend it.

That could be referring to Clint or Bradley Cooper, right? Wouldnt they both be considered “Lead Actors?”

Now that filming has moved on from Augusta, we are no longer getting the daily updates on filming. There wasn't really much information shared, but I still found it kind of cool, and am going to miss those updates.

If I had to guess, I'd say the same, Antonis, but Warner Bros has Bradley Cooper's "A Star is Born" opening in October, and that's already getting Oscar buzz. Warners may not want to release another movie with Bradley Cooper at around the same time.

My brother and best friend also saw "Black Panther" and didn't like it. But, I must confess, I'm not the typical audience for this type of movie, so my perspective may not be representative. I liked the Nolan Batman movies and the original Spiderman movie, but I wouldn't consider comic books movies to be a favorite genre.

I saw "Black Panther" and hated it. I really don't understand why it got praised so highly.

They wrapped filming in Augusta today, but may be returning in July.

It looks like we'll have another Eastwood alumni in this film. Loren Dean, who played Ethan all the way back in 2000 in "Space Cowboys," has joined the cast! Ethan was a bit of an idiot in that film,  whose impulsiveness and failure to listen to the old pros put the lives of everyone at risk, so hopefully he will be playing a smarter character as a DEA Agent in "The Mule."

Some more cool shots of Clint. I am a little surprised by how excited the townspeople seem to be about this movie filming in Augusta!

Beyond seeimg commercials on TV for his show, I wasnt familiar with Anthony Bourdain, but suicide has claimed another life, and that I do find to be incredibly sad. Although he did die in France, he grew up in the U.S. We really need a much better mental health treatment system in our country. This just shouldnt be happening on the scale that it does in the U.S. Its the 10th leading cause of death, the second among those aged 10 to 34 and the fourth among those aged 35 to 54, and deaths have increased 25% since 1999!

Perhaps AKA thought he was posting in the Star is Born thread?

Nope, Damien Chazelle directed all three films.

14
I was a fan of both "Whiplash" and "La La Land"  (and I absolutely hate musicals), so I'll probably see this at some point.

I also note that the official press release does not mention Dave Holstein having worked on the script. When this project was first announced, it stated that Holstein had rewritten Nick Schenk's original script. So, it may be that Eastwood went back to Schenk's original draft when he signed onto the project.

I like Dianne Weist and Laurence Fishburne, and it should be interesting to see Alison Eastwood act with her father again.

This is the second time that Eastwood is working with Laurence Fisburne and Michael Pena. Michael was in "Million Dollar Baby" and Laurence was in "Mystic River." Alison Eastwood has had several collaborations with Eastwood, but has not had a significant role with Eastwood onscreen since "Tightrope." She had a cameo in "Absolute Power," and starred in "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil," so it's been over 20 years since she worked with her Dad. This should be interesting. This will also be Eastwood's second collaboration with Bradley Cooper as he starred in "American Sniper."

That updated synopsis also sounds even more interesting than it initially did, and confirms that this really will be a heavily fictionalized story.

What a great choice for an item, Matt. I also REALLY hate selfies. I think a lot of young people in particular are quite self-centered, and that that drives their constant desire to be taking photos of themselves, often doing the most mundane of activities, which they then post all over social media. That's not universal, but it's true more often than not.

You are welcome, Saman.

So, I don't know who these people are, but according to IMDB, Robert Lasardo and Lobo Sebastian have been added to the cast.

Agreed, and I get why he made "The Rookie." He was trying to kind of capitalize on the action comedy genre that had become very popular with movies like "Lethal Weapon." It did not turn out well, but the motivation made sense given what was popular at that time.

I don't really remember how to play this game! But I had a quick read on page 1 and think I can start this off. Is it an inanimate object?
