Longing for the halcyon days of popping flashbulbs and excited fans that came hand-in-hand with his performance in Freejack, Mick Jagger has decided to get back into the film game. He’s come up with a plot and hired A History of Violence writer Josh Olson to run it through his script-making brain machine. Tentatively titled, Tabloid, Jagger would play a disreputable international media mogul who seduces a young reporter into his world.

It’s being categorized as an “adult thriller.” Does this mean we’ll see Mick Jagger imitating Richard Branson and then crawling around on top of an actress four times his junior? While I can admit it would be fun to see him playing Branson, I have no interest in seeing his 68-year old, nude, greyhound-like form. Maybe this film is a good excuse to return to the old method of just showing clothes on the floor before dissolving to breakfast. (Deadline)

‘Tabloid’ Trailer: Errol Morris Kidnaps, Chains Up Your Attention http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/tabloid-trailer-errol-morris-kidnaps-chains-up-your-attention/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/tabloid-trailer-errol-morris-kidnaps-chains-up-your-attention/#comments Thu, 09 Jun 2011 22:46:59 +0000 Geoffrey Golden http://www.screenjunkies.com/?post_type=Video&p=215626 Did Joyce McKinney rape and kidnap a mormon missionary? The most interesting gossip is vintage.

Charlie Sheen got fired from a TV show for drinking and talking smack on the internet. Crazy smack, but still, it’s nothing compared to the strange story of 70s beauty queen Joyce McKinney.

An IQ of 168 did not keep McKinney out of trouble. In 1977, she became a tabloid sensation for supposedly raping and kidnapping Kirk Anderson, a mormon missionary. The trailer above is for Tabloid, a documentary about the “the Mormon sex in chains case” by documentarian Errol Morris (Fog of War). McKinney describes why the rape charge is absurd, comparing it to sticking a marshmallow into a parking meter. That just became my favorite analogy of the day, possibly the month. Things only get crazier from there.

It’s a fun, slick trailer that kept my attention without spoiling too much. If you’re looking for break from monsters and superheroes this summer – though I’m not sure why you would be – and the reviews are good, I’d bring your paparazzi camera over to theaters July 15th. Check out the poster below.
