Taylor Swift Has Signed On With Searchlight Pictures To Write And Direct Her First Feature-Length Film

December 9, 2022 / Posted by:

Just a year after making her sure-to-be Oscar-nominated directorial debut with the 15-minute short film, All Too Well, which doubles as a music video for her two-time smash hit song of the same name, Variety reports that Taylor Swift is gearing up to wade into deeper water by directing a feature-length film of her own original script for Searchlight Pictures. Variety also reports that Taylor will be sharing her insights and wisdom as a director with fellow auteurs such as James Cameron, Ryan Coogler, and Francis Ford Coppola as part of their Directors on Directors series, featuring “conversations between directors of the biggest films of the year.” Safe to say that at this point in Taylor’s remarkable career, it’s not hyperbole to call her one of the world’s most talented, gifted, and virtuosic storytellers of her or any other generation when it comes to shameless self-promotion. Simply put — she’s the best to ever do it.

David O’Russell’s Star-Studded “Amsterdam” Tanked At The Box Office

October 10, 2022 / Posted by:

Billy Eichner may have seen this news and relaxed after calling out the Straights™ for not buying tickets to his gay romantic comedy Bros, which bombed at the box office. Because well, David O’Russell‘s Amsterdam bombed hard too. The star-studded film had a production budget of $80 million but only made $6.5 million at this past weekend’s box office. It did worse in theatres than Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile.

Christian Bale Claims He Acted As A Mediator Between Amy Adams And David O. Russell On The “American Hustle” Set

October 6, 2022 / Posted by:

Christian Bale covers this month’s GQ to promote his latest flick, Amsterdam, directed by David O. Russell (31% on Rotty-Ts). This is the third time 48-year-old Christian’s been directed by 64-year-old David; he previously starred in The Fighter and American Hustle. The GQ interviewer brings up the claims that David’s behavior on the American Hustle set caused Amy Adams a lot of turmoil and tears. Christian confirms there was on-set drama, and that he acted as the “mediator” between actress and director. It was such a mess that Christian “STAY OFF THE FUCKING SET, MAN!!!” Bale had to play peacekeeper.

Jennifer Lawrence, Angelina Jolie, And Jamie Foxx Reportedly Turned Down Roles In David O. Russell’s New Movie

June 3, 2021 / Posted by:

Just yesterday we learned that Taylor Swift was going to keep on trying to establish herself as a musician-slash-actress, with a role in David O. Russell’s new film, which is rumored to be possibly titled Canterbury Glass. Naturally, I assumed that Taylor’s casting was some kind of Plan B pretty blonde backup situation, due to David O. Russell’s “muse” Jennifer Lawrence not being in the movie. As it turns out, David reportedly did ask Jennifer Lawrence if she wanted to work with him for the fourth time, and sources say she, and others like Angelina Jolie and Jamie Foxx, turned him down.

Taylor Swift Has Been Cast In David O. Russell’s Next Movie

June 2, 2021 / Posted by:

You’ve got to hand it to Taylor Swift. Where others might see the reviews from the 2019 flop, Cats, and decide that now was as good a time as any to officially retire from acting, Taylor did not! Those terrible reviews didn’t crush her big-screen dreams, and she’s going to be in another movie. But Taylor will work with David O. Russell, a director who has a decent track record of success. David’s reputation for mutual respect, professionalism, and not being an asshole? That’s just a bit spottier.

Well, David O. Russell Does Have A Reputation As A Major Asshole To Uphold

March 3, 2016 / Posted by:

“You can’t act worth a damn. I only hired you because we couldn’t afford Jessica Chastain. You have cankles. Wait, you’re not crying yet. Okay, while on my way over here, I stopped by your house and kicked your new kitten.” – David O. Russell in that picture, probably.

There’s been story after story about how director David O. Russell is a throbbing dick slit wart and working with him is about as pleasant and easy as using hot sauce as lube to butt bone yourself with a durian fruit. Cases in point: David O had a cuntastic meltdown and went after Lily Tomlin on the set of I Heart Huckabees. He allegedly molested his niece’s chest in a gym. He made a studio executive cry on the set of Joy. And that’s probably just the tip of the dick wad iceberg. Now here’s another story about what a piece of butt corn he is and I’m sure David O doesn’t mind it. Because every time a story about him being a nip pimple comes out, he stops punching a blind orphan puppy to cackle into the night sky over everyone being reminded of his asshole ways.
