Hey People.

First time posting! Yeah!! ('
')
Anyways, I was over at "aintitcoolnews" reading Harry Knowles review of the new movie "Wanted". At the very end of the review he dropped this little scrap that I thought ATS folks might find interesting.




"Btw - fun story. The Weinsteins went to Moscow to negotiate for the release rights of NIGHT WATCH in the United States. The deal was going good - when all of a sudden Timur's cel phone rings. On the other end was a gentleman named PUTIN. Apparently the leader of Russia told Timur not to sell the film to the Weinsteins because they support the Democrats with Campaign donations and political work - and it was "better for Russia" that the Republicans be in power. Thus NIGHTWATCH got sold to FOX SEARCHLIGHT... a company controlled by noted conservative, Rupert Murdoch. Red States indeed. Isn't that an amazing story? Every word is true."


I don't personally know Mr. Knowles but I don't think this is made up. Still wondering why since most people think democrats are socialist in disguise anyways. Timur, I believe, is the producer of Nightwatch. It's the first in a sci-fi movie franchise thats pretty popular in Russia and Europe.

Welcome aboard.

I don't know if it is true or not, but Putin has had plenty of disagreements with the Bush administration, although we have maintained a tenuous amicable relationship.

This sounds like BS to me, but ultimately, it's meaningless what Putin wants, although I would like to see improved relations with Russia.

Maybe Putin has seen the light. Who knows?
