Our little Lij is slowly but steadily climbing up the cinematic ladder. Didn't he direct a music video for Apples in Stereo, too?

Yes, he did.

I think this is great news. It seems like a very interesting project as well.

I also like dark novels! I'm excited about this project. I'm sure he can do it well. :P

He is truly climbing upper and upper the ladder. And if he finally gets an oscar, i will make a huge party. ;D

Thanks Dee for the pointer. It seems like his talent is truly limitless - how wonderful! I'm glad he has all these doors opening for him and I can't wait to see what comes of this project. We know Lij is not afraid to get in touch with this dark side, moviewise... but this is what really excites me about this project: "to unearth something from that era that hasn't been made into a film or is not a remake is really exciting. It's a lost classic." A lost classic. Sounds mysterious and exciting. I can't wait to discover something new :)

You know, this has reached the entertainment news all the way here. :o Lij news don't usually show in the local news here, which is pretty boring. ::)

But anyway, thay said that the source of the news were the newspapers. So it's in BBC, in the newspapers... I guess he has received pretty good publicity with this. :)

This is exciting news and Iím happy to hear it. Elijah has been quoted as saying he eventually wanted to get into producing and directing so I imagine he jumped at this opportunity; I think it says a lot about the confidence people have in his abilitiies.

But goodness, he must be breaking records with all the things on his resume!

I've never heard of the book, but it sounds really good. From what the article says, it evokes thoughts of John Connelly's 'Every Dead Thing' - probably because it's also set in Mississippi and it's very dark. It's a pity the book's been out of print for so long!! I know a really good book dealer though, so I might see if he could track it down for me ;D.
SQUEE!! It's being written by the guy who did 'Lost Highway'!! That makes it EVEN MORE appealing.
Elijah is so busy right now!! But at least he's doing many different things rather than sticking to formulaic (is that a word? LOL!!) Hollywood dribble!! ;D

You said it Haru, but then he;s never been afraid to be different! This is just typical of me...I missed this completely until just now! Was it on the news in America or what? How did Deenan find out about this?! Thanks anyway, hope its as successful as everything he;s ever acted in. What does a producer do exactly?

well, i have news alerts and this one came through my email. it's from the hollywood reporter so it's legit and all good! :)

a movie producer controls, supervises and coordinates things like hiring people, financing, and finding distributors. they're involved in all aspects of making a film from start to finish.

Thanks! He's so dedicated, isn;t he? I mean, I don't know if I;d be bothered to work as hard as he does lol!

Post by: deenan on April 21, 2007, 08:18:33 am

somehow i don't think elijah considers this to be "work." yeah, it's time consuming and more than likely a hair-pulling experience, but i'm sure it's pure enjoyment for him (not the hair-pulling) and to be deeply involved in something he's passionate about. :)

Post by: maryd on April 21, 2007, 08:38:36 am

I'm sure you're right..i hope when i grow up that i do something i love...

Post by: elijah44 on April 22, 2007, 05:52:23 pm

;D IM so happy for him, bless him :P do you think he will still act too though? thats something im worried about, him not acting again, but im sure he will coz he loves it :P xx

Title: Re:Elijah: The Movie Producer
Post by: deenan on April 22, 2007, 10:20:34 pm

i'm sure elijah will keep his acting hat on. at least for now. ;)
