Movie Snippets: Wallace & Gromit, Rock Hudson Flick, & More
* Heath Ledger is reportedly in negotiations to go gay again in a new movie about screen icon Rock Hudson. AintItCoolNews claims the Australian actor is the frontrunner to land the role of the closeted actor, who died of an AIDS-related illness in 1985. A movie insider tells the site, "After playing a straight man who has a gay relationship, Heath Ledger will do a 180 and play a gay man who has a straight relationship."
* Downfall producer Bernd Eichinger is to turn his attention from Adolf Hitler’s life to another shameful part of German history - terror group the Red Army Faction. The movie maker is working with journalist Stefan Aust on the script for a film version of the latter's best-selling book “The Baader-Meinhoff Group: The Inside Story of a Phenomenon,” which explores postwar Western Germany's most active left-wing terrorism organization. He says, "It's a very exciting project and it's going to be a film of the same scale as (Hitler biopic) Downfall. In fact, the subject matter is likely to ruffle even more feathers than Downfall. This is a chapter in German history that's not really been dealt with and a lot of historical facts are only being discovered or disclosed now."
