Taxi Driver-Remake von Scorsese und Von Trier mit De Niro in der Hauptrolle? (UPDATE)


[update] Das ist genau der Grund, warum ich keine Gerüchte mehr bringe: „Von Trier’s business partner Peter Aalbaek Jensen tells ScreenDaily that “what is written” by the Danish film magazine “is not true.” He confimed that the two directors had met at the Berlinale but said rumors von Trier wanted to re-make Taxi Driver were “rubbish”.“ (/Film)

Hier das ursprüngliche Posting:

Dieses Gerücht ist zu weird, um es unter „Ferner liefen“ abzufeiern: Während der Berlinale tauchten unbestätigte Meldungen auf, Scorsese würde zusammen mit Lars von Trier (keine Info, wer von beiden die Regie übernehmen solle) dessen Meisterwerk „Taxi Driver“ neu verfilmen – mit De Niro erneut in der Rolle von Travis Bickle. Alles nur Gerüchte, aber irgendetwas sagt mir, dass da was dran sein könnte.

Reports – unconfirmed reports, but reports nonetheless – are emerging from the Berlin Film Festival, suggesting that Martin Scorsese may be about to team up with Lars von Trier to remake Taxi Driver. With – and this is where it gets really weird – Robert De Niro once again playing the lead role.

Now, bear in mind that this is just a rumour at the moment, but Danish film magazine Ekko sounds pretty sure of its facts, while von Trier’s producing partner, Peter Aalbak, would neither confirm or deny the reports, but did say that an official announcement would soon be made.

Scorsese & Von Trier Remake Taxi Driver? Starring… Robert De Niro?!?

    Ist mittlerweile leider schon von Lars Von Trier selbst dementiert worden. Er und Scorsese hätten sich zwar tatsächlich auf der Berlinale getroffen, Pläne für Taxi Driver hätte er aber goar keine. Was ja nicht stimmen muss…

    Warum ist Deutschlands köstlichster Filmblog eigentlich so überhaupt gar kein bisschen auf Deutschlands köstlichstem Filmfestival präsent, bzw andersherum? Kein Kommentar zum göttlichen (wirklich!!) Banksy Film, nix zum tollen neuen Sylvain Chomet, kein müdes Pupsen zu Scorsese, Polanski oder Vinterberg. What’s up guys, Akkreditierung verpennt oder was?

    Na gott sei dank…

    Putting The Cost Of The ESA’s Rosetta Mission In Perspective

    "So what do we get for our €1.4bn? Rosetta is both an astounding feat of engineering (catapulting a tonne of spacecraft across millions of kilometres of space and ending up in orbit around a comet just 4 km across) and an extraordinary opportunity for science (allowing us to examine the surface of a lump of rock and ice which dates from when the Solar System formed).

    Like a lot of blue-skies science, it’s very hard to put a value on the mission. First, there are the immediate spin-offs like engineering know-how; then, the knowledge accrued, which could inform our understanding of our cosmic origins, amongst other things; and finally, the inspirational value of this audacious feat in which we can all share, including the next generation of scientists.

    Whilst those things are hard to price precisely, in common with other blue-skies scientific projects, Rosetta is cheap. At €1.4bn, developing, building, launching and learning from the mission will cost about the same as 4.2 Airbus A380s—pretty impressive when you consider that it’s an entirely bespoke robotic spacecraft, not a production airliner. On a more everyday scale, it’s cost European citizens somewhere around twenty Euro cents per person per year since the project began in 1996.

    Rosetta has already sent us some stunning images of Comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko and today’s landing will, with any luck, provide us with our first close-up glimpse of the chaotic surface of this dirty snowball. If you’re a sci-fi fan, then, you might consider the mission to have been worth its price tag just for the pictures. The total cost for the Rosetta mission is about €3.50 per person in Europe; based on the average cinema ticket price in the UK (€8.50), it has cost less than half of what it will cost for you to go to see Interstellar.”
