Chris Messina Got Advice From Ben Affleck, Francis Ford Coppola Before Directing 'Alex Of Venice' →

Q: Francis Ford Coppola is a pretty great resource. You’ve worked with so many incredible filmmakers so far in your career, who did you seek counsel from?
CM: Guys who I really tried to steal from were Woody Allen, Sam Mendes and Ben Affleck. Ben, I had asked some advice about things. What it is, though, is all those movies and filmmakers — even the ones you didn’t gel with or didn’t like the way they worked with you — they all tattoo themselves on you. They become your makeup. You’re constantly pulling from, and learning from, the stuff that worked and the stuff that didn’t work. Sam Mendes gave me advice that I constantly repeat: every actor comes with a gift, and it’s my job to let that gift out. I tried to do that on the set. I tried to invite these actors to play, and hire them and use them for their gifts. I think if you give any actor confidence, they’ll really fly.

Q: I  feel like this came up when Ben Affleck was cast as Batman: that as an actor, he can make four movies in the time it takes him to direct one. You’ve got a full-time job on “The Mindy Project,” are you going to be able to balance that with making another film in the future?
CM: The dumbest thing I did was doing post-production while filming the television show: it was two full-time jobs. I actually told Affleck that. He is a superhero, because he can do 20 different things at the same time. I don’t know when he sleeps. He’s working on so many different scripts and projects. So, I told him what I was doing and he said, “Are you fucking nuts?” When he said that to me, I thought, “If he thinks that, I must be nuts. How am I going to pull this off?” So that I would never do again. I would love to direct again, but I would have to clear my plate to do it.

Ben Affleck helps kickstart Alan Ladd Jr. doc

Ben Affleck has signed on to appear in “Laddie,” a documentary about Alan Ladd Jr., who produced Affleck’s Boston-based directorial debut, “Gone Baby Gone.” Affleck has also made a donation to the film’s Kickstarter campaign, which runs through May 16; if you pledge $1,500, you get a “Gone Baby Gone” poster and DVD signed by Ladd and Affleck. (Spend $1,000 more and you get an associate producer credit.) Ladd is probably most appreciated not for “Gone Baby Gone,” but for helping George Lucas  make “Star Wars.” One of the producers of the Ladd doc, Natasha Klibansky, is a Newburyport-area resident who used to work with Ladd in Los Angeles.

As it appears, us Batman/Superman fans are going to have to wait a bit longer before we learn more about the sequel’s filming. Last week we learned that Miss Gal Gadot, Ben Affleck, and even Miss Amy Adams headed to Detroit to join Henry Cavill. HenryCavillNews is reporting that Miss Adams and Affleck are both back in Los Angeles [x] and beardless Henry Cavill was spotted yesterday heading to Chicago [x]. MoSFilms will be gathering reports on the filming as soon as we hear them.
