Stoooked!




The other thing that I’ve been working on now that’s similar, and it is very different: I acquired an extraordinary book by Mark Bowden which is coming out June 6, called Hue, 1968. It’s the entire pivotal battle during the Tet Offensive. All of the storytelling is told within the personal stories of hundreds of people caught in this compression in this war zone. It has a democracy of weight to each character, whether they’re a U.S. marine, or a high school teacher from Hanoi middle school who’s met the NVA (North Vietnamese Regular Army) military infantrymen, or LBJ in his pajamas. It’s gonna be a limited series, either 8 or 10 hours. That’s got all my attention, along with Ferrari [a biopic starring Hugh Jackman], which I plan to do in 2018.

...Enzo Ferrari biopic with Hugh Jackman...


I want him to include the famous exchange between Enzo Ferrari and Ferruccio Lamborghini but I doubt he will.

Interesting. I like Michael Mann movies. I especially think Heat is severely underrated.

HEAT is not considered underrated by anyone I know. Its hailed as the best crime drama among the most. And it will withstand the test of time forever in my opinion.

I agree. It just seems that anytime there is a discussion of film, particularly crime/heist flicks, I never hear Heat get much of a mention. Maybe because it's such a slow burn? The payoff of the robbery at the end is worth it though. Probably one of the most realistic and visceral shootouts put to film.
