There's a starstruck piece
in today's NYT
about Gwyneth Paltrow and her directorial debut. She's making a short film about dating as part of a charity production project spearheaded by Glamour
magazine, and she spent three days this summer shooting it in (gasp!) Brooklyn. Poor thing. Anyway - here's a bit of wishful hype-ery: "[S]how business has treated her very well, indeed. There is already buzz about her next film, Proof
, which is set for a Sept. 16 premiere. The movie [is] one of the last projects of the departing co-chairmen of Miramax, Harvey and Bob Weinstein." Reality check? The "buzz" on Proof
is mixed at best, mostly owing to the fact that it's been sitting on the shelf for a year. It is one of the last Weinstein Miramax projects - it's one of the last they're dumping on screens before hightailing it out of there October 1st.
