UNDER THE BANNER OF HEAVEN
The book delineates the real life tale of murder and mayhem in a Mormon family in Utah. Think of it as the antithesis to the Broadway hit show "The Book of Mormon" currently running in NYC.
The flood of posts/stories came yesterday after the collapse of plans for Howard to shepherd the development of an adaptation of Stephen King's "The Dark Tower" series. despite the fact that Howard reportedly is on record as saying that "The Dark Tower" project still has a pulse...he seems to have lined up a number of other projects to keep himself occupied over the next few years in addition to the announcement of this project.
You can find various versions of the "Under the Banner" story at The Wrap here:
At The Hollywood Reporter here:
and at The Playlist at Indiewire here:
TTSS ONE SHEET...MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE?
Then we stumble across this Anne Thompson (Thompson on Hollywood/Indiewire) post yesterday that says that the poster is coded. WHAT???
Maybe so. After debate camp (yes, I'm at debate camp this week) I'm going to have to take a run at the thing and see if I can decipher anything.
The Anne Thompson story is here:
The Playlist (at Indiewire) has a story up that introduces us to a 30 second TV spot for "Moneyball." "Moneyball" stars Brad Pitt, Jonah Hill and Philip Seymour Hoffman in the story of the real life transition that was undertaken by the Oakland A's major league baseball team.
