Famke Janssen has voiced interest in returning to X-Men as Jean Grey

"Although women, it’s interesting because they’re replaced, and the older versions – or more mature, whatever the politically correct version of that is – are never to be seen again. Whereas the men are allowed to be both ages. Sexism. I think that I should be back along with my younger version and the way that we’ve seen it with Magneto and Professor X.” FAMKE JANSSEN

I agree with her, as they've done exactly the same with Rebecca Romijn to replace her with the younger version of Mystique portrayed by Jennifer Lawrence. Don't get me wrong I love Lawrence, but I dislike the rude way they tend to "fire" actors that have helped build a legendary franchise and "fill the coffers".
If you look at the cast of the next Xmen film you won't see Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart or Ian McKellen  onboard. Obviously they're also doing this with male actors and to me "Xmen" without Famke Janssen, without Hugh Jackman, without …

"The Most Beautiful Girl In The World"


Could U be the most beautiful girl in the world?
It's plain 2 see U're the reason that God made a girl
When the day turns into the last day of all time
I can say I hope U are in these arms of mine
And when the night falls before that day I will cry
I will cry tears of joy cuz after U all one can do is die, oh

Could U be the most beautiful girl in the world?
Could U be?
It's plain 2 see U're the reason that God made a girl
Oh, yes U are

How can I get through days when I can't get through hours?
I can try but when I do I see U and I'm devoured, oh yes
Who'd allow, who'd allow a face 2 be soft as a flower? Oh
I could bow (bow down) and feel proud in the light of this power
Oh yes, oh

Could U be (could U be) the most beautiful girl in the world?
Could U be?
It's plain 2 see U're the reason that God made a girl
Oh, yes U are

And if the stars ever fell one by one from the sky
I know Mars could not be, …

Mastering Film » Screenwriting Tip #100: The Three Acts of Writing a First Draft


Some very good advice in this articles. I've just finished the first draft of a script for a production company. I usually spend one month on a first draft, then forget about the script for a few days, go back to it with a pair of fresh eyes, then start rewriting it which is for me the more important of all writing phases...


Also when working on a first draft I only write a scene ending and all dialog first, then fill in the action sections later...

72 YEARS AGO...

72 years ago today Robert Lynen was executed with 14 other Resistance members in the fortress of Karlsruhe at the age of 23. A talented actor and a high-profile member of the Resistance during world war II, Robert Lynen was the "ultimate super hero" and the lead character of my latest french-written screenplay.

It was an honor to meet you through my pages and to share your story.
