Hot water: Terry Gilliam has a lot to say, and not everyone's happy with it, Katherine Schaffstall writes: 



Gilliam believes that the #MeToo movement that has taken over Hollywood has become a “mob rule.”

While speaking with >AFP on Friday, the director acknowledged that many women have suffered in regards to sexual harassment in Hollywood. But, he said, others are using


Weinstein’s downfall as a way to improve their careers. His opinion on the #MeToo movement is that it has become “silly.” He said, “People are being described in ridiculous terms as if there is no real humanity left anymore.”

"I feel sorry for someone like


Damon who is a decent human being,” he went on. “He came out and said all men are not rapists, and he got beaten to death. Come on, this is crazy!”

He continued: "It's crazy how simplified things are becoming. There is no intelligence anymore, and people seem to be frightened to say what they really think. Now I am told even by my wife to keep my head a bit low. It's like when mob rule takes over, the mob is out there. They are carrying their torches and they are going to burn down Frankenstein's castle." Full story.

The reactions: They have not been kind. "Terry Gilliam may wanna turn those feelings of fear & uncertainty he’s getting from #metoo/#timesup and realize 'Ohh this is how life has been for THEM til now... huh. Wow. Damn.' See? Now it’s empathy," tweeted


Silverman, while 


Apatow wrote: "Terry Gilliam’s comments about Harvey Weinstein are idiotic and dangerous. ... He should be ashamed of himself."

Union drive: A new effort aims to boost Hollywood's female union membership, writes Katie Kilkenny:

After electing its first president of its board of directors, the advocacy group Women in Media is looking to boost the numbers of unionized female crew members in Hollywood.

The goal, recently elected board president


Sopori says, is to help women navigate the "catch-22" of union membership in Hollywood: "Anyone peripherally involved in the industry understands that in order to be a part of union projects, you need to be a union member; but in order to be a union member to begin with, you need to be involved in union projects." Full story.

Lucas Hedges to play Shia in Shia movie:  One actor will take on another, writes Borys Kit:

Lucas Hedges, who was nominated for an Oscar for his work in Manchester by the Sea , will play the young version of

Shia LaBeouf in Honey Boy , a feature drama that LaBeouf himself wrote and that tells, in a roman-a-clef style, a story about LaBeouf's relationship with his father. LaBeouf plans to portray his father in the film.


Har’el is due to direct the feature project, which reflects many facets of LaBeouf’s life – he cowrote the script using the pseudonym


Lort. The script landed on the Black List with the following description: “A child actor and his law-breaking, alcohol-abusing father attempt to mend their contentious relationship over the course of a decade.” Read more.
