Finally some good news regarding ‘Gravity’! The FilmStage has tweeted earlier this month that MPAA ratings has arrived for the film:
Gravity rated PG-13 for intense perilous sequences, some disturbing images and brief strong language.
We are now wondering if a release date is near, since MPAA ratings are only given when the film is nearly complete. The first test screening was back in May and a few days later WB has moved the movie to a vague 2013 release. Maybe now with the MPAA ratings we can have good news!
Due next spring, Feig recently spoke to Playlist contributor Jen Vineyard at the opening night premiere of “Arbitrage,” where the director was celebrating finishing “The Heat” by going to his NYC restaurant, and told us a little about the project, featuring Sandra Bullock and “Bridesmaids” breakout star Melissa McCarthy as an FBI agent and a Boston police officer who team up to take down a Russian mobster, has wrapped.
“On the screen, it’s kind of a street smart Boston cop and Sandra’s like a FBI agent, idolizes [“The Silence Of The Lambs” character] Clarice Starling [played by Jodie Foster in the film], more uptight, and they come together,” he explained of the dynamic between the two disparate characters.
“Melissa and Sandra just got along so well, they became like the best of friends, and the chemistry is so fun, because Sandra in real life is awesome,” Feig said. “She’s got nerdy qualities about her that I love, and that went into the character. And Melissa is tough as nails, and that really played into the characters. Sandra had so much fun, and she was such a fan of Melissa’s that when the script came along and she found out Melissa was into it, it came along really fast. It came to me eight weeks before we started shooting, so we dove in and did some rewrites on it.”
Feig revealed that the film has some great cameos that audiences should look out for, plus the Oscar count is surprisingly high. “Yeah, there are some fun surprises [in the cast],” he said. “Some really good people. Demian Bechir came in. We have three Academy Award nominees and one who has won, obviously, so it makes us seem very classy.”
So, finally I have added 1500+ blu-ray quality screen captures of “The Blind Side”, the 2009 movie which Sandy’s performance gave her the Oscar for Best Actress. Check it:
A few more pictures of Sandy on set last July 20 in Boston filming “The Heat” has now been added to the gallery. Check it:
A few days ago was reported that Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky (“Bad Teacher,” “The Office,” “Year One”) were rewriting the script for director Paul Feig’s buddy-cop comedy follow-up to “Bridesmaids” that will star Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy, and today we heard the movie got a title: The Heat.
Written by “Parks and Recreation” scribe Katie Dippold , the film centers around the strained relationship between a high-strung FBI agent and a “unconventional” Boston police officer. Also joining them in some way is YouTube comic Spoken Reasons, who will play a character named Terrell Rojas, though all other details about the character are unknown.
