EACH FRIDAY, THE TRADEVINE SEEKS OUT A FEW OF THE INFORMATIVE TRADE ARTICLES YOU MAY HAVE MISSED. VISIT THE TRADE, ITSELF, FOR THE ENTIRE ARTICLE.


 

Hello everybody, I’m Danika Quinn of the Actors Reporter and welcome to the TradeVine. We’ve got some great articles for you this week. These are only a few of the more interesting articles you shouldn’t miss. Our goal here at the TradeVine is to help you stay informed and to keep up with the trades, such as The Hollywood Reporter, Daily Variety, and Backstage.

 

The Hollywood Reporter had a special issue this week all about Comic-Com with several interesting articles including, “Inside the battle for Comic-Con’s soul,” “If B-movies crashed the Oscars,” “A one-on-one relationship with thousands,” and “The fight to save the comic book.” Did you know that in the 1980’s, a hot comic book could sell more than 500,000 copies? Now a comic is considered a success if it scores one-tenth of that amount.

 

Backstage, July 21st-27th – In the article entitled, “Great Performances,” noted actors, directors, writers, and other artists share their favorites. Read Jason Alexander’s thoughts on the cast of “Network,” Charles Grodin’s thoughts on Montgomery Clift in “A Place in the Sun,” and Chris Game on John Cazale in “Dog Day Afternoon.”

 

Daily Variety, Monday, July 25th – Con: Dazed and amused, by Marc Graser and Josh L Dickey. Each year San Diego’s Comic-Con, which wrapped Sunday, rolls out an array of top genre stars and helmers, and each year there are unexpected moments for both presenters and audiences. Some of the celebrities that appeared included Charlize Theron and Kristin Stewart.

Daily Variety, Wednesday, July 27th – “Bourne” keeps legacy, by Justin Kroll and Jeff Sneider. Though the “Bourne” franchise is moving on without Matt Damon, a pair of familiar cast members signal that Universal plans to keep “The Bourne Legacy” set within the same world as the first three pics. Joan Allen and Albert Finney are in negotiations to reprise their respective roles as a CIA agent and a doctor, key members of the super-agent factory Operation Treadstone. Tony Gilroy is directing from a script that he penned about another assassin, not Jason Bourne, who trained in the same program, to be played by Jeremy Renner. And, Edward Norton is in talks to play the villain.

 

Well, that’s it for the TradeVine this week. I’m Danika Quinn. Thank you very much for watching. And remember, You heard it through the Tradevine!
