When he’s on his game, director Barry Levinson makes a pretty good movie. Don’t believe me? Go back and watch Diner, Rain Man and Wag The Dog. However, when Levinson isn’t playing up to par… Well, the less said about Man Of The People the better.
Levinson’s next film is What Just Happened?, a dark comedy starring Robert DiNero as a Hollywood producer trying to juggle a crazed career with a normal, sedate home life. Sounds interesting, but even if Levinson brings his A-game to the project, how well will it do? Hollywood insider pictures seldom do big box office. Perhaps the added star power of Bruce Willis, Stanley Tucci and John Turturro will help get butts into seats?
We’ll find out on October 13, when the movie hits theaters.
