Dear Gossips,

Warner Bros has acquired the rights to Donna Tartt’s The Goldfinch in partnership with RatPac Entertainment. That’s Brett Ratner’s company. Does it bite your ass that he called his company RatPac? I mean I get it. His last name is Ratner. But…that’s kind of…like…it’s the Rat Pack. Like Sinatra and Sammy Davis Jr and Dean Martin and… REALLY???

Anyway, Tartt’s first book The Secret History – which I loved so much even though it f-cked me up for a week and it’s on my 25 book list here -- was also optioned by Warner Bros years ago but nothing ever happened. Did you know that Gwyneth Paltrow and her brother were once considering adapting it? (Charles and Camilla Macaulay!) It’s the kind of story David Fincher would be great at. Full Story

 

Joaquin Phoenix: Dr Strange?

A few days ago THR reported that Joaquin Phoenix and Marvel are in negotiations for him to play Dr Strange. I mean, he’s definitely right for it. On talent, he could totally do it. Of course he could. But… is Joaquin Phoenix a Company Man? Think of how RDJ is a Company Man now for Marvel. Full Story
