In a 2004 article about Elmer Bernstein, published after Bernstein's passing, Todd Haynes mentioned a Freud project:
Far From Heaven director Todd Haynes, in remarks filled with emotion, said that his film had been "graced beyond belief" by Bernstein's music. He said they had talked about collaborating on a film about Sigmund Freud.
So a Freud project is definitely something Haynes has been wanting to do for many years, perhaps even going further back than when he and Elmer Bernstein talked about it. My guess is that this is what the Amazon project will be.

What happened to all of Amazon's films after Wonder Wheel being self-distributed?

(The fact that they might actually not be so forthright and stingy about this new policy is a good thing, clearly, but I'm just surprised to see it change so quickly)

By sheer coincidence I read THE GOLDFINCH last week. I enjoyed it well enough, but I can scarcely imagine it turning into a good film. It's going to be awfully tough to pull a narrative out of that book that's worth making a film out of, especially if it's going to get the Oscar-bait treatment.

Greengrass lending his style to a Breivak-related film sounds pretty repulsive, but I guess it's one less movie I have to see. But then I liked Campos's pointless Christine Chabbuck film from last year, so we'll see!

She looks overly stylized to me, almost how I might view a caricature of someone from the UK. I cannot believe they'll make her look that uncouth in the film.

I wouldn’t base too much on a paparazzi photo taken with a zoom lens with regard to how it is going to look on film, Big Ben. Remember this?

Peter Strickland's In Fabric
Peter Strickland (Berberian Sound Studio) will direct ghost story In Fabric starring Oscar-nominated actress Marianne Jean-Baptiste (Secrets & Lies, Broadchurch).

The director is reteaming with producing partner Andy Starke (Free Fire) on the project after the pair previously collaborated on The Duke Of Burgundy. Starke developed the film in association with Ian Benson at Blue Bear Film and Television and will produce via his production company Rook Films.

In Fabric, also written by Strickland, is set against the backdrop of a busy winter sales period in a department store and follows the life of a cursed dress as it passes from person to person, with devastating consequences.

Not really in production so much as "almost released," but apparently Mel Brooks has sanctioned and is appearing in a CGI animated remake of Blazing Saddles?!?

The only thing I don’t like about the Robert Wise film are its two romantic leads, so that’s one thing the remake can improve on. Spielberg has directed two musical sequences which were fun, so I’ll be intrigued what he‘ll do with this. It’s just that I haven’t really liked a film of his since Catch Me if You Can.

The book was pretty lousy. Here's hoping Perkins can add something interesting to it.

Netflix’s Dan Gilroy-Jake Gyllenhaal Film Sets Ensemble.

The director of Nightcrawler and Roman J Israel Esq is currently shooting his next film about "...big money art and mega-collectors who pay a high price when art collides with commerce."
