While addressing the issue of school shootings last year, NRA VP Wayne LaPierre decried on Hollywood’s “blood-soaked films” for promoting a culture of violence. Now Hollywood is getting ready to fight back, and to put the blame back on the NRA’s shoulders.

Producer Harvey Weinstein revealed that he and Meryl Streep are gearing up to make The Senator’s Wife, described as a Mr. Smith Goes to Washington-esque drama targeting the gun lobby. Weinstein, a staunch Obama supporter, is making no bones about his stance on the issue — his hope is that the movie will damage the gun manufacturing industry and make the NRA “wish they weren’t alive.” More details on the film after the jump.

Poster for Snowpiercer

When it was first reported that The Weinstein Company planned to cut roughtly 20 minutes out of Bong Joon-ho‘s South Korean blockbuster Snowpiercer, the director seemed pretty sanguine about the whole affair. He was said to be working with Harvey Scissorhands to get the edits done, even though he point of the cuts was reportedly to trim character moments and turn the movie into more of a straight-ahead action movie, not unlike the changes that were made to Wong Kar-wai’s The Grandmaster for it’s own US debut.

Turns out that the director might not be so happy with the idea of the edits. After a recent screening of the film at the Busan Film Festival, Bong said there wouldn’t be another chance for American, British, and Australian viewers to see the director’s cut. Publicly, he’s been relatively supportive, but privately he’s said to be “furious” with the changes.  Read More »
