'Wire' Creator Proud of New HBO Miniseries, No Matter Who Wrote it

STV · 07/11/08 03:05PM

From the creator of The Wire! Sort of! The Iraq miniseries Generation Kill premieres this weekend on HBO, with do-no-wrong David Simon linked as co-writer/executive producer of the seven-part event. The LA Times had a look and seems to have liked it fine, despite the fingerprints of journalist and source author Evan Wright having smudged some of the central characters' "expository dialogue."

Perhaps a little down that his latest labor of love is making a straight-to-iTunes debut instead of getting a run at the Sunset 5 or the Angelika, filmmaker Ed Burns is already tossing dirt on the fresh grave of art-house cinema: "'This is the year that art house cinema died,' he says. Referring to the box office disappointments that have been Rendition and Lions for Lambs, Burns continued, 'If they're not going to see Reese Witherspoon and Tom Cruise they're not coming out to see me and Patrick Wilson. The audience isn't there anymore.'" [MTV Movie Blog]

Prince will headline the Super Bowl halftime show; broadcaster CBS has pledged to take every precaution necessary to ensure that the rocker will not try and top Janet Jackson's infamous nipple-display by having one of his background singers yank off his codpiece, revealing that his penis is barely covered by purple junk-armor. [Variety]
Columbia Pictures acquires the rights to 1930's pulp hero The Shadow for Sam Raimi to produce, hoping that by the time a film is eventually released, people will have completely forgotten about the disastrous 1994 version starring Alec Baldwin. [THR]
Steven Spielberg is actively developing two drama series at Fox via his DreamWorks TV label, including one set in the world of fashion written by Ed Burns and wife Christy Turlington. Given Turlington's experience in that industry, it's unclear how the duo will split up the scripting and "just sitting there and looking pretty" duties. [Variety]
· CAA, obviously still disoriented from the recent, baffling defections of Kate Hudson and Hugh Grant, agrees to take on Christian Slater as a client. [THR]
