has the filming started or is clint still on holiday?  

or is this film not going ahead after all

maybe he is gonna make that film with Paul Newman after all ::)

But seriously, it would be a very interesting idea.  Two very different actors.  Could it work?  Could it be brilliant?

Oh sorry, that would be a new thread.

True enough vik, I dunno ???.  

Didn't somebody here say it was starting production on June 7?  

Also, I don't think it has been mentioned in this thread yet....

according to this interview:

http://romanticmovies.about.com/od/chroniclesriddick/a/riddickcc060304.htm

Christina Cox claims she will play the boxing opponent.

I was in Venice Beach, Ca last week on vacation and saw Clint filming a scene on location at a beach front condo.
Got him on video but apparently this wasn't the first day (Tuesday, June 8th) he had set up scene chots.
People in the crowd had said they'd seen Hilary shoot some scenes in the previous few days along the beach.
Lots of equipment and trucks so it looked like they were going to be there for a while.
We never got back after that day so not sure what else was done in respect to the movie being shot.
Clint is pretty much still in great shape. He came outside his trailer to sit on an exercise bike - looked like a prop for the set.

No problem - glad I could be of some assistance on the current shooting status of the "Million Dollar Baby" movie set.
My family and I were pretty impressed with seeing such a movie legend in person.
Very tall, rugged, and  athletic looking - even at 74 yrs young!
Glad to be a part of this informative web site.

great  news, after a long time we would be able to see the man on screen , any way 'rope burns' would have been a better title. i am sure this would take another year.

Rope Burns is actually another story in the collection by FX Toole that is not optioned by Eastwood.  It is optioned by Taylor Hackford.  This is why they can't use that title.  Also, filming is currently going on throughout LA.  Some of the filming is happening at the Olympic Grand Auditorium this week.  So, from what I have heard, it is moving along nicely.

Two weeks ago I was fortunate enough to go on the set of this movie.  It is still being called Million Dollar Baby as far as the crew is concerned.  All the signs around the set called it that as well as the "directors" chairs.  They were all screen printed with "MDB" and "Million Dollar Baby" on them.  It was a surreal experience seeing Clint Eastwood and Hillary Swank working together.  They were doing boxing scenes while I was there and so it was quite a sight.  Hillary is in tremendous physical shape.  And, Clint really looked the part as a corner man.

Filming is supposed to contiue through July.  I believe that most of the boxing scenes are pretty much complete by now.  But, there might be a few more days of it.

I guarantee this movie will not be called "Rope Burns."  As I have stated before, that title is taken by another producer in Hollywood.  The title will be "Million Dollar Baby."

Ok GBH, we ge the picture, I don't think there's really any need to keep telling us. As of right now, there actually hasn't been an official title announcement except for the original article that stated it would be called Million Dollar Baby. Alot of of sites have started to call it Rope Burns and no one from Warners has yet to say otherwise, so we'll just have to wait and see as to whether or not that is the title or if they are going with Million Dollar Baby. Clint could have always bought the rights to use the name Rope Burns, or perhaps they found some sort of loophole that would allow them too, or perhaps it's the code name for the film at this time, since alot of films do that. ex: Batman Begins is filming under the name "Intimidation Game". Let's just see what happens. 8)
