Scotty Bowers Biopic Set; Big Names Attached Comments (0)

Who will play Scotty Bowers in the new movie based on his life — and why is it being written by Seth Rogen and not somebody gay?

These are the big questions now that it's been announced that Luca Guadagnino will direct the adaptation of Scotty and the Secret History of Hollywood from a script by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg.

Casting is not available, but I see someone like Taron Egerton, IMO. NO need for it to be a gay actor; Scotty, who died in October, knew his way around a penis but certainly was not gay.

I liked the book, I loved Matt Tyrnauer's far more interesting doc, and I am very hopeful that this movie will be everything that Ryan Murphy's Hollywood was not.

Or maybe even just be ANYTHING that it was not.

Great Scotty footage here, not too long before his death.

More Scotty 'n' you can handle:

Necromancing Queen: A Review Of SUSPIRIA Comments (0)

I'm becoming disenchanted.

I have a soft spot for the horror genre, but increasingly, it feels as if horror films that horror fans praise as brilliant are really just unapologetically of the genre; they're not necessariIy good films overall.

Case in point: Suspiria, which has generated enthusiasm among the crowd that had previously been wary of Luca Guadagnino remaking the 1977 Dario Argento classic. Yes, it's a serious entry in the genre, yes it is exquisitely well-shot and is taken as seriously as death by its talented cast, but it's also maddeningly dry, pretentious, nonsensical and relentlessly nihlistic. Like the far more over-praised Hereditary, it's claustrophobic claptrap. Unlike Hereditary, it's also embarrassingly self-indulgent filmmaking that proves the impossible — that too much of Tilda Swinton can be a bad thing.

When it was first reported that director Luca Guadagnino was pursuing a sequel to Call Me by Your Name, it seemed hard to believe. A sequel to a romantic gay drama? Unheard of.

Now, he has confirmed a sequel is in the works, and that he's talking with André Aciman, who wrote the novel, about details ...
