In The Lens

JASON REITMAN TO DIRECT "I WOULD ONLY ROB BANKS FOR MY FAMILY "

 

The story revolves around a seemingly ordinary Texas family who pulled off two bold bank heists before they were caught attempting a third.  

 

The family-themed project marks a father-son re-teaming of Reitman, who will also produce the film through his Right of Way banner, and his father, Ivan Reitman, who is producing through his Monteceito Picture Company. The two last collaborated on Jason Reitman's "Up In The Air" starring George Clooney that was nominated for a Best Picture Oscar.   

 

Articles by Skip Hollandsworth, who reported the family bank heist story in the June 2014 issue of Texas Monthly, have long been attractive to Hollywood. An article by Hollandsworth served as the basis for Richard Linklater's "Bernie."

 

Hollandsworth's reporting of "The Family Who Robs Banks Together" describes Scott Catt,  a structural engineer and seemingly ordinary dad living in a pleasant Houston suburb. Hardworking and responsible, devoted to his son, 20, and daughter, 18,  he teamed with them to augment the family coffers by robbing banks.

CHRIS PRATT TO STAR IN 
"COWBOY NINJA VIKING"


He may have already nailed the role of Walkman-loving Peter Quill in "Guardians of the Galaxy" but Universal hopes Chris Pratt has another Superhero--or three--up his sleeve. The studio has signed Pratt to star in an upcoming film adaptation of "Cowboy Ninja Viking."

  

   

Pratt will most certainly play Duncan, the titular hero of the 2009 graphic novel whose multiple personality disorder has been optimized to make him three different assassins in one. He's one of many so-called Triplets originally trained to be Super Agents in the graphic novels.

 

  

It's not clear if Pratt will play all three versions of Duncan--the Cowboy, The Ninja and the Viking--or just one of them. Nevertheless, the whole thing could end up being quite a bit of fun especially with Chris Pratt's comedic talent in the mix.

HOLIDAY HINT: WHAT'S NEXT IN FRAGRANCE?  LUXURY SCENTED JEWELRY

  

For a totally new endeavor, French perfumer Kilian Hennessy is introducing scented jewelry. And he's not talking plastic rings with perfume in the center.

  

  

Hennessy, descendant of Richard Hennessy, founder of  the famous cognac house, got the idea to design aromatic jewelry as the way to make his fragrances visible and beautiful. In describing the new collection, Hennessy said "We want everything we make to have the capacity to last a lifetime and jewelry is something you pass down."

  

Inspired by the famed Studio 54 and reminiscent of their signature disco ball, the jewelry is designed to release a subtle trace of aroma throughout the day, either by microencapsulating scent onto silk cords that suspend the jewels, or by spraying a caged piece of  rechargeable porous ceramic.

  

  

Women's accessories are available in rhodium or plated 18K gold starting at $250.00 and men's leather bracelets at $195.00 . For a limited time, holiday shoppers may choose from the collection at selected Saks Fifth Avenue stores or visit the company's website www.bykillian.com . Smells like a good idea to us.
