This was one of the top headline stories on Variety.com today,
Robert De Niro and Al Pacino will team onscreen for just the second time in “Righteous Kill,” a $60 million indie production put together by Nu Image’s Millennium Films and Emmett/Furla Films.
There is something very wrong with this sentence. Very wrong. $60 million does not = indie. Hell, one million does not = indie.
Indie should be reserved for films that cost under $100,000 and don’t include everyone and their brother having an assistant. I’m talking about a film where actors get credit for acting, holding cameras, feeding people and set building. Now THAT is indie film.
So, can someone send Hollywood a dictionary. Even one of those kiddie ones with the pictures would do the trick. schmucks.
