Re: Sundance Preparedness List

Dear Bruce-

Your people asked my people to ask me to write up a list of things to remember before you head to the 2012 Sundance Film Festival. They know you’ve been to Sundance before — back in 2008, you walked the red carpet in support of Barry Levinson’s WHAT JUST HAPPENED — but they’re apparently a little worried you might be a little “What just happened?” about the whole experience and need a Park City refresher. You may decide you want to fire your people for that. That’s between you and them. I just do as I’m told. Don’t blame this on me and then drive a car into a helicopter into my living room, or run barefoot with a machine gun through my kitchen. Thanks.

Alan Rickman talks about DIE HARD

Alan Rickman talks about DIE HARD

It’s hard to imagine that an actor who garners as much respect as Alan Rickman got his start on the big screen beside Bruce Willis as the blonde-haired, German super-villain Hans Gruber in DIE HARD (1988). Though he had previously worked in television and, more notably, in theatre as a member of the Royal Shakespeare Company, it’s an action flick that marks Rickman’s film debut at age 42. This decision surprised a lot of people, but when DIE HARD’s director and producer saw him on Broadway in Liaisons and approached him about the film, Rickman was enthusiastic. “Doing DIE HARD was a big holiday for me because I didn’t have to go onstage every night. It was also something I’d never done before, and I like that in life.”

What Christmas movie involves a New York cop, a dozen buff, blonde German terrorists and enough colorful catchphrases to last you till the new year? I’m talking, of course, about DIE HARD (1988).
