Talk about over-hyping a movie.
It's a biopic on a pornstar.. big deal. The story involved the mob - been there, done that.
So they're going to get an A list director and actors... there are many movies that have that.
Had the same thoughts when I read the blind on the site. Jesus Christ does RDJ love hyperbole. This sounds like some limited release nobody will care about.

Re: Rumor is Christopher Nolanís next film will be biopic of Ď80s pornstar

Takedown of a formidable and ruthless agency (the mob) by one lone female using her wits and guile

There are several points here that are firmly in the zeitgeist right now (female empowerment and institutional corruption).

It's also a Davey vs Goliath story with the twist that Davey is an unapologetic, sexually liberated woman.
In the time frame depicted, she is also a sexual outlaw in that this is still Reagan's moral majority America.

Lots of avenues that could make this a compelling film.

Overhyped a little? Maybe. But you have to understand that the reporter here (RDJ?) is relaying this from the perspective of the people who would be creating it or vying for parts in it. THEY see the potential for a project that will garner a lot of attention + a juicy part (which includes a range of emotions/ demonstrable arc in addition to being a big cheered for hero or huge hissed on villain).

Given the attention this will no doubt generate, the creatives likely see this as a potentially career making/defining project.

I'm thinking Erin Brokovich with sex.

I donít buy the Nolan guess. If you accept RDJ is the author of this post you must admit it doesnít really jibe with his impression of The Dark Knight. I donít think heís a rabid Nolan hater by any means but I donít see him writing a hyperbole-filled wall of text heralding his upcoming cinematic orgasm. I read through this several days ago when it was first posted and Nolan never even crossed my mind.

And yeah, there isnít a speck of effective sexiness in Nolanís entire filmography either.

Well Warner Bros has a good relationship with Nolan so it would make sense for them to try to lure Nolan to do a "GoodFellas of porn" opus. Someone like Shane Black, who has worked with RDJ before, seems like a better fit.

The rumor is that the mysterious himmmm is an account shared by multiple entertainment industry people, one of whom is RDJ, one a music industry insider , and at least two others.

IIRC (don't want to try to read the wall of text again) one of the points I remember being made was that the studio wanted it in the hands of someone who wasn't going to treat the production as his personal sexual candy land, which could easily happen given the subject matter and intense competition via casting. Especially in the current climate.

Nolan, with his somewhat sexually arid creative disposition, would seem a reassuring choice for the studio. And he is seen as a prestige director of 'serious' films.

I'm not a huge fan of Shane Black, but I would agree that I would probably enjoy this material more if it were in his hands. It would definitely be less pretentious and earthier, than with Nolan glossing it up.
