Exclusive: Tarsem On War Of The Gods

Exclusive: Tarsem On War Of The Gods
His intriguing next film?


Exclusive: Tarsem On War Of The Gods

We talked to director Tarsem Singh recently in anticipation of the DVD release of fantasy oddity The Fall on Monday, and he spilled a few intriguing-sounding beans on his hoped-for next film, War of the Gods. Here's what he had to say.

"It’s turning into, basically, Caravaggio meets Fight Club," he said. "It’s a really hardcore action film done in Renaissance painting style. I want to see how that goes; it’s turned into something really cool. This guy who I really love, who’s the only one person in it right now, is the brother in The Tudors, Henry Cavill. I’m going for a very contemporary look on top of that so I’m kind of going with, you know, Renaissance time with electricity. So it’s a bit like Baz Luhrman doing Romeo + Juliet in Mexico; it’s just talking a particular Greek tale and half contemporising it and telling it."

To say that this sounds so-weird-it's-awesome would be an understatement. Caravaggio was a big influence on Tarsem's Losing My Religion video (find that here) and we'd be lying if we said that "Caravaggio meets Fight Club" doesn't sound like just about the best idea ever (although someone should really do "da Vinci meets Halloween" if you ask us).

Jake Gyllenhaal Gets a Haircut!

Reese Witherspoon and Jake Gyllenhaal shop at APC clothing store in West Hollywood on Saturday (January 24).

The couple came out empty-handed but walked to their car holding hands. And it looks like Jake got a haircut and finally cut his mane off!

The Devil Wears Prada star Anne Hathaway recently complimented Reese on her figure.

She said, “I don’t think it’s just Hollywood that gives out that message. As a society we put out these unrealistic body images to young women. But I’m a normal shape and Scarlett Johansson is not a skinny, skinny girl. Beyonce looks after herself and has a beautiful body. Reese [Witherspoon] looks great.” 10+ pics inside…

Tom Cruise: Suri is Super!

Tom Cruise is spotted going out to dinner at Scott’s restaurant in London on Friday night (January 23).

The 46-year-old actor reportedly left around midnight after having dinner with Eddy Izzard.

Appearing on GMTV, Tom talked about Valkyrie and raising his daughter Suri. “[Suri] is such a happy girl, and I think that Kate is an extraordinary mother and very calm. Protecting her, but also you don’t want her to be sheltered in any way, and to be able to be engaged in life, and I think that’s like any parent.”

“And just keeping things calm and you find that as long as we’re not worried about anything - you know, you just do the best you can with it,” Tom said.

Nicole Kidman is spotted out exiting her car on a windy day in New York City on Saturday (January 24).

At the G’Day Australia black tie gala at New York City’s Waldorf Astoria Hotel on Friday, Nicole said, “Four years ago I was honored at a similar event in Los Angeles and a young musician, very talented musician was being honored that night too, and I had never heard of [Keith Urban].”

“Now I have heard of him and I have to say I owe a lot to this event,” Kidman said.

Kidman, Cate Blanchett, Russell Crowe and Geoffrey Rush, all Australian Oscar winners, will be honored by the Australian Postal Service by appearing on a postage stamp.
