  Let Them All Talk (Director: Steven Soderbergh)
Posted by: michael shaver - Yesterday, 03:47 PM - Forum: Focused Film Discussion - No Replies

Quote:HBO Max has picked up Steven Soderbergh’s next film, the comedy “Let Them All Talk” starring Meryl Streep.

Joining Streep in the ensemble cast are Candice Bergen, Dianne Wiest, Lucas Hedges and Gemma Chan. The screenplay was written by short story author and MacArthur Fellow recipient Deborah Eisenberg.

It’s the story of a celebrated author (Streep) who takes a journey with old friends to have some fun and heal old wounds. Her nephew (Hedges) comes along to wrangle the ladies and finds himself involved with a young literary agent (Chan).

“This is the kind of project where you just say yes please sign me up,” said Sarah Aubrey, head of original content at HBO Max. “To work with Steven Soderbergh and this all-star cast led by Meryl Streep is thrilling and sets the standard for features at HBO Max.”

Production started last week in New York and will continue on board the Queen Mary 2 ocean liner and in the United Kingdom. Soderbergh had been teasing the project on social media and Streep and Chan were rumored to have joined late last week.

The film is produced by Gregory Jacobs and executive produced by Ken Meyer and Joseph Malloch.

It’s one of the first feature film announcements for the premium streaming service, which has announced several series including a “Gossip Girl” spin-off and the Greek mythology series “Circe.”

Streep also stars in Soderbergh’s upcoming Panama Papers drama “The Laundromat,” which premieres at the Venice Film Festival before going on to the Toronto fest.

  The Definitive "Help Me Figure Out The Name Of A Book I Can't Remember" Thread
Posted by: Fafhrd - 08-18-2019, 09:08 PM - Forum: Books, Magazines, Kindle, Nook, Audible, and Whatever - No Replies

Much like the thread about finding out movies based on vaguely remember plot details, this one is about finding books we read once but have since forgotten what their titles and authors were/are.

So, my book: I read this book in my early teens, probably, so 20+ years ago. It was part of a series about a private detective with psychic abilities, and one of the later books in the series. He had a couple of other psychics who worked with him that he'd picked up in the earlier books in the series. He also had a switchblade that he'd named Veronica, I think he'd also named his revolver something, but I can't remember it. The prologue of the book was about the creation of the Terracotta Army, and how all statues in it were made as replicas of all the soldiers of the emperor's army, and when all the statues were completed the soldiers fought each other to the death until only one was left, who the emperor then killed before killing himself. In the end of the book it's revealed that this was all a ritual to bind the souls of the soldiers to the statues so that psychic energy could be released in the future (the book's present) as a weapon to destroy some sort of Lovecraftian monster (the ghost of the emperor explains this to the protagonist). The end of the book has our heroes celebrating their victory in a world famous dumpling house in China.

I've found myself recently wanting to re-read this book and also the other books in the series, but damned if I can remember what the hell book was called, and googling what I can remember of it gives me nothing.
