Sources confirm Jake & Reese's break-up

Reese Witherspoon, Gavin Hood and Jake Gyllenhaal at 'Rendition' Photocall - Rome Film Festival, on 21th October 2007.

"Sources confirm to Gossip Cop that Reese Witherspoon and Jake Gyllenhaal “are no longer together.” Gossip Cop is told that the split was “amicable and mutual.”

The couple met on the set of “Rendition”, and began dating in the spring of 2007. They briefly broke up once before only to get back together. This time, however, the break up appears to be permanent".

"The relationship was at the point where they either got engaged or broke up," a friend of Jake's tells me. "There is no doubt that they love each other very much, but Reese wasn't ready to say 'I do.' And if she wasn't ready after two years of dating, Jake wondered if she ever would be." Source:

Jake and mom Naomi out for dinner

"After watching sister Maggie's new movie Crazy Heart, Jake Gyllenhaal and mom Naomi grabbed dinner together at Kate Mantilini in Beverly Hills. "They seemed to enjoy their soup [since] it was cold outside," a fellow diner says, adding, "Jake was looking good and super-attentive to his mother."

Time Travel: Donnie Darko and Looper

"Different temporal parts of the same occurrent can overlap. If we hear a concert delayed in time and the concert itself we accept them as equally real. We notice naturally that there is a difference between the entanglement of meeting a younger ego and the experience of hearing simultaneously a concert and its former replica, only delayed in time. If a wave is sufficiently coherent it can annihilate itself in a region of space or time by interference. We can delay occurrents in time but cannot delay continuants in time. To record the moving image of a person means to access information about a temporal part of him and this record is less real than the continuant itself because it is ontologically dependent on it: an object in time can be delayed in time only as image and by this process the original reality of the object is lost. We cannot accept that two different temporal parts of an object could stand in almost the same space and have the same degree of reality. One of them have to be less real. It is clear that a time journey is itself an occurrent, as it has temporal parts, it is a process and it has phases.A clear four-dimensionalist tendency affects the scientific description of time travel".

- Extracts from "Time Travel and theories of Time" (2000),
written by Ioan Lucian Muntean.

The Terminator: The main timeline is set, and traveling back in time cannot change anything. Indeed, traveling back in time to change the present will sometimes cause the very thing you're trying to avoid, as happens in The Terminator (for obvious dramatic reasons). This is among the more plausible time travel theories, as it avoids those messy paradoxes.Back to the Future: There are, I suppose, many ways to interpret time travel in this movie, but in this theory, there is still only one timeline, but you can change the past (and thus the present). In this theory, it's possible to go back in time and kill your father (before he had you), and in such a case you will "disappear." This is also a common theory, but the presence of paradox makes it less plausible.
The End of Eternity: In Isaac Asimov's novel, a group of people known as Eternals develop time travel and decided to improve upon history by introducing carefully calculated changes in the timeline. There is more to it than that, but the concept of a society using time travel to manipulate history is an important concept that is relevant to DD.Lightning: In Dean Koontz's novel, time travel is only allowed in one direction: to the future. This takes care of the "kill your father" paradox rather neatly. You can, however, change the future. There is a catch though, which is probably more for dramatic effect, but which bears importance in the Donnie Darko discussion - essentially, fate doesn't like it when you attempt to change something in the future: "Destiny struggles to reassert the pattern that was meant to be." Donnie Darko (Jake Gyllenhaal) wakes up disoriented at the edge of Carpathian Ridge' cliff.

Donnie Darko sort of contains elements of all four, and since it includes the Back to the Future theory, it also sort of includes a paradox".

“Looper is set in a present-day world in which a group of hitmen are sent their victims from the future,” although Johnson assured fans that there was much more to the film than that.My full /Filmcast interview with him (where we discuss symbolism in Bloom, as well as that film’s ending) will be going up on the site shortly, but in the meantime, hit the jump for some details about the next script he’s working on, a sci-fi film called Looper.

It should be noted that Johnson is still working on the second draft of the script and thus, any and all of these details may be different by the time the film goes into production. Among the elements of the film that Johnson revealed:

The film will be set roughly thirty years in the future.

The film will depict a dystopian society that has gone to “hell”.

A disruptive element will have traveled back in time from even further in the future. The time travel element is part of the setup, much like in The Terminator, but not an active ongoing part of the story".
Rian Johnson with Rachel Weisz at "The Brothers Bloom" TIFF Press Conference on 9th November 2008.

Looper will be “very dark, very violent. It’s the exact opposite of Bloom.”

The Hurt Locker: Front Runner in the Oscars

"On director Kathryn Bigelow's success (achieved in part by getting funding outside of Hollywood, detailed in Dargis's June profile of her): Something like a woman winning best director for directing an action movie and not a romantic comedy is symbolically important. Whether it then leads to a lot of women doing things outside of the pathetic comfort zone of romantic comedy – and I say that as someone who loves romantic comedy – we'll see. We know that because women are allowed to make romantic comedies that they can make romantic comedies. That's in everyone's comfort zone. The idea that a woman can be a great action director is not is everyone's comfort zone. That's [Bigelow's] exceptionalism". Source:

The Hurt Locker, winner of the 2008 Venice Film Festival SIGNIS Grand Prize, is a riveting, suspenseful portrait of the courage under fire of the militarys unrecognized heroes: the technicians of a bomb squad who volunteer to challenge the odds and save lives in one of the worlds most dangerous places. Three members of the Armys elite Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) squad battle insurgents and each other as they search for and disarm a wave of roadside bombs on the streets of Baghdad—in order to try and make the city a safer place for Iraqis and Americans alike.
Their mission is clear—protect and save—but its anything but easy, as the margin of error when defusing a war-zone bomb is zero. This thrilling and heart-pounding look at the effects of combat and danger on the human psyche is based on the first-hand observations of journalist and screenwriter Mark Boal, who was embedded with a special bomb unit in Iraq. These men spoke of explosions as putting you in the hurt locker. Three members of the Army's elite Explosive Ordnance Disposal squad battle insurgents and each other as they seek out and disarm a wave of roadside bombs on the streets of Baghdad.

Leonardo DiCaprio: Inception and Viking movie with Mel Gibson

"Mel Gibson will direct and Leonardo DiCaprio will star in an untitled period drama set in the world of Viking culture. William Monahan is writing the script.

Graham King will produce with Gibson and Tim Headington in a co-production between King’s GK Films and Gibson’s Icon Productions. Shooting is expected to begin fall, 2010, meaning that if everything falls into place, it would be the next directing effort for Gibson.
The principals confirmed the project but would not divulge many details. DiCaprio, who has long been fascinated by Viking culture, will play one in a storyline that will be as unsparing as Gibson’s other period directing efforts “Braveheart”, “The Passion of the Christ” and “Apocalypto.”

The connective tissue is King.
Leonardo DiCaprio plays Billy Costigan in "The Departed" (2006).

The producer teamed with DiCaprio and Monahan in the Oscar-winning drama “The Departed”, and just worked with Gibson and Monahan in the Martin Campbell-directed drama “Edge of Darkness.”

DiCaprio will likely take a film before putting on the Viking horns. He just completed the Christopher Nolan-directed “Inception” for Warner Bros., and will next be seen in the Martin Scorsese-directed “Shutter Island”, which Paramount releases February 19. Gibson just completed the Jodie Foster-directed “The Beaver.”

"I over-prepared myself because I never knew how much they were going to ask me to do, so I just made sure I'd be hopefully able to do anything," Jake told ET, saying with a shrug, "I guess I've gotten buff."

He added that when filming finally wraps, "It's going to turn into fat and I'm going to be happy."

She previously won Best Actress at the Aspen Film Festival for the independent feature "Bickford Schmeckler's Cool Ideas."On stage, Wilde starred in Epic Theatre Center's Off-Broadway production of "Beauty on the Vine."

"I find myself constantly pretending I'm a chic Parisian," says the L.A.-based actress. "I even dream of buying a Balmain jacket with really sharp shoulders. If I can pull off that look, I will have succeeded, at least partially, in my quest." Here, the 25-year-old divulges some of her favorites—pieces that are easygoing, sophisticated, and of course, très belles".

"Fix" is shot as a faux-documentary in which Bella (Wilde) and Milo (Ruspoli) trek across Los Angeles in a treacherous effort to get Milo's heroin-addicted brother (Shawn Andrews, Pickford of "Dazed and Confused" fame) into rehab before he misses a court-ordered deadline and ends up in the slammer. The idea was based on Wilde's suggestion that they create a film around Ruspoli's charismatic real-life brother."I said, 'Is there one day in his life that you can remember that might make a great movie?' " Wilde explained. "And [Tao] said, 'Yeah, there's one day.' And it was this day that really happened."
Olivia Wilde and her husband Tao Ruspoli, director of "Fix".

Despite the tight filming schedule, Wilde refused to give up the opportunity to work with her husband. "What makes a great relationship is when you really admire and respect the other person and when you can be inspired by them, and if you create something together, those are some of the most magical times in a relationship," she said. "If you can work on anything together, you can really appreciate the gifts the person has to offer."
