HBO is reportedly on the brink of snatching up the rights to a “behind-the-scenes documentary” about Barack Obama, says the New York Post.
The paper says the unfinished doc’s cameras have been rolling for almost two years, and it’s being produced by none other than ‘The Incredible Hulk’ star Edward Norton.
HBO reportedly wants to air the film “within the first 100 days” of Obama’s presidency, if he wins, that is.
Edward Norton is leading a campaign to create more affordable housing in his New York neighborhood.
The millionaire Fight Club star is appearing in TV and radio advertisements asking residents of the city to welcome new developments in their areas.
Norton, who lives in Manhattan’s Greenwich Village, has long been associated with the Enterprise Community Partners, founded by his grandfather.
The Fight Club star toned up for his role as Bruce Banner, the mild-mannered scientist who transforms into the raging green monster.
And Tyler, who plays Banner’s girlfriend Betty, was so intimidated by his svelte stature, she didn’t want to be filmed standing next to him.
She says, “There were points when I was like, ‘Wait! We cannot do this love scene because his body looks so much more beautiful than mine!’”
Eco-friendly actor Edward Norton celebrated Earth Day today by encouraging the movie industry to be more green.
Norton, the son of a green activist, insists the entertainment community has set a good example by embracing environmentally-friendly practices. But he wants Hollywood to do more.
He says, “I think the studios are doing their part. Not just because it’s the right thing to do, but because it’s cost effective. They need to look at the way films get made. There’s a lot of waste in the way we make films.”
The Fight Club star narrates environmental series Strange Days on Planet Earth, which airs on U.S. TV network PBS on Tuesday evening.
