^But apparently EW is owned by the same company as WB (Time Warner). So does that perhaps give them an advantage? Who knows?!
Perhaps. Unless they got their source directly from WB, which I find unlikely.

Really not fond of this creative incest. Won't take long, and all Inception cast members re-unite in TDKR.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

^ This is no different from other directors using actors they're comfortable with in various projects. It's not a big deal. It's a good bet Leo and Ellen won't be in this movie, same with Marion.

Don't like that very much either. Same goes for the rest of the creative team. It tends to let all movies look and feel the same, despite the content. And then it makes it even harder for newcomers.

Die Hard 4, for example. Felt and looked way too much like Underworld, because Wiseman (the director) reused the composer, cinematographer, production designer and editor. That's 5 people in key positions for two entirely different movies. That's just bad. Different film projects need different people. I welcome this for sequels, but not for films that have nothing to do with each other.

When I saw Live Free or Die Hard the very last thing on my mind was Underworld. As a matter of fact, I didn't even know Wiseman brought on his regular crew for the Die Hard flick.

+1
Nothing in Die Hard 4 made me think of Underworld. At. All.
I do believe Jarod is projecting.

Len Wiseman is no Christopher Nolan and Underworld was no Inception. I also bloody well hope that TDKR is no Die Hard 4 - but that it's much better!

They do it because lots of big name actors are just plain hard to work with. They can be demanding prima donnas who are so self-absorbed that it endangers an entire project. So when directors find good actors that they click with, they stick with them. It's just too risky to helm a $100 million film starring actors with whom they're unfamiliar.

That may sound harsh, but I used to want to be an actor until I got to college and met some.

I'm the other way on this. I like it when directors stick with the same teams behind and in front of the cameras. Not only does it give their movies a specific feel that makes it easily identifiable, but it also makes it easier to decide if a movie is worth seeing. Just look at Tim Burton, most of his best movies have been the ones he did with Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter, so at this point I know if I see a movie those three names in the credits then it is probably gonna be good. Or Nolan and Michael Cane.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

See, in my world, the Burton / Depp / Bonham-Carter pairings ad nauseam are an example of this going bad, because Burton's been making the same goddamn movie for at least ten years, and Johnny Depp's been playing the same character in them for that long. (Good Christ, Alice in Wonderland was fucking awful.)

With other directors, it can work, however. Martin Scorsese works with Leonardo DiCaprio or Robert DeNiro on just about anything he makes, Thelma Schoonmaker always cuts his movies, Michael Ballhaus or Robert Richardson shoots them, and Howard Shore scores them. But that works, because those are all incredibly talented individuals who are very good at what they do, and Scorsese is a master craftsman.

I completely agree. My "FTW" was 100% sarcastic.
