Terry Gilliam
There are few cinematic raconteurs as lively and interesting as Terry Gilliam, so you can imagine that when we chatted with him earlier this month, our conversation wound up being fairly wide-ranging. Yesterday, we ran the first part of our talk with Gilliam, focused solely on his forthcoming sci-fi effort "The Zero Theorem." And today, we bring the rest of our discussion with the filmmaker which fans and those just interested in the industry in general, will want to take a look at.

'The Long Good Friday' To Become A TV Series; 'Transporter' Gets Greenlit By CinemaxAs we mentioned earlier today in our "Pirates of the Caribbean" sequel story, Hollywood loves nothing more than taking a single property and finding new ways to draw money from the same well over and over and over again. The formula keeps working because everyone keeps handing over their money for these movies no matter how diminishing the returns. And from a studio perspective, it costs far less to simply dust off an old piece of material than to get an original project off the ground. That's the game that's being played today, so no shock then that two more films are getting spitshined for new, and probably, blander versions.
