Hollywood, tailor-made!

It pleases one to no small limit to see all (or at least most) of his favourite actors, director(s) and screenplaywright(s) working on a common project and coming out with what can only be a masterpiece of a film. This coming year looks like its my turn.

Among my favourite actors are (in no particular order) Al Pacino[The Godfather (trilogy,) Scent of a woman, Scarface, S1m0ne,] Marlon Brando [The Godfather, Julius Caesar, A streetcar named Desire,] Robert DiNiro [The Godfather II, Mean Streets, Raging Bull, Taxi Driver,] Johnny Depp [Pirates of the Carribean, Charlie and the chocolate factory, Public enemies, Alice in Wonderland] and Hugh Grant [Four weddings and a Funeral, Notting Hill, About a boy, Music and Lyrics.] And then my favourite directors are Francis Ford Coppolla [The Godfather,] Martin Scorsese (SKOR-say-zee, many say it wrong!) [Raging bull, Good fellas, Taxi Driver, Shutter Island,] and Stevn Speilberg [Jurrassic Park, Schneider’s list.] And not to tire you out, two of my many favourite screen-playwrights are Steven Zaillian [Schindler’s list, Mission: Impossible, The Interpreter, American Gangster,] and Eric Roth [Forrest Gump, The Good Shepard, Munich, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.]
