Yes, thank you so much for sharing. Some direct quotes, the casting process is pretty amazing:
Quote:
On the plot of the new film: Crowe: Murray plays the part of Carson Welch, a charmingly eccentric billionaire who runs a visionary company, Global One. He’s a dynamic player on the world stage. Lately Welch has been launching rockets and satellites too. Defense contractor Brian Gilcrest (Bradley Cooper) is his former protege.

On how he landed Murray for the role: I was lucky. Emma Stone had remained good friends with Bill Murray since “Zombieland.” It was Emma who first reached out and sent him a text. Did he want to join us in the fall, in Hawaii? Murray wrote back: “You. Hawaii. Crowe. Sounds interesting.” We both jumped up and down for a very long time, and then tried not to get too excited. Of course the excitement only built. I sent him a script, a little music and some books about the world of the character. One night Bill Murray called back, and I missed the call. No return number. And then there was silence. My friends tortured me mercilessly for missing Bill Murray’s call. (I picked up the phone hopefully, on the first ring, for weeks. Nothing.) Then came a text from Bill. And he’d sent one to Emma too. He had enjoyed some of the music I’d sent. I texted back immediately, and also asked a question about the young actor we were about to hire, Jaeden Lieberher. (Jaeden was also acting with Murray in “St. Vincent.”) Murray was enthusiastic in his praise for Jaeden. We hired Jaeden. Hiring Murray would not be so easy. We attempted to engage with his lawyer, but those discussions faltered without official word that Murray was in fact really interested. Sony officials warned us to start looking elsewhere — it didn’t look good. And then late one night came another text, not from Bill… but from young Jaeden. It read: “I just saw Bill at the wrap party. He told me to tell you, ‘Don’t listen to the suits. I’m coming to Hawaii. Aloha, Bill.’” And that’s how we found out he was going to be in the movie. He told us through his 10 year-old co-star, who I immediately nicknamed “Bill Murray’s Agent.”

I just love how he told CC he would be there through a little kid.

Another great quote from Jaeden Lieberher:
Quote:
Who’s someone you worked with since St. Vincent who you had a really great experience with, or location you worked at? What was one of your best experiences shooting since St. Vincent?
New Orleans was amazing, because I like the cold, and it’s good to be in the cold, and Mardi Gras, that was really fun. Everybody in St. Vincent was really amazing to work with, Melissa was super sweet, Naomi was really nice, Ted was really nice. And then Rachel McAdams was really great in the Hawaii project. There’s a lot of great people.

I watched a few interviews with Jaeden he did to promote St. Vincent including a few with Bill Murray. He seems a bit shy but really sweet

Warner Bros have moved their 3D disaster movie, San Andreas, forward a week to the same date as Untitled Hawaii.

Insidious 3, which also opens on May 29th, has just released its first teaser trailer. Hopefully we'll see something from the Cameron Crowe film this side of Xmas

Interesting that there are now 4 wide-release movies opening that weekend: Hawaii, San Andreas, Insidious and Paramount's animated film, Monster Trucks. Should be a competitive weekend. It has been a long time since Rachel has had a truly wide-release movie in the States!

He really is Wendy! He did a lot of promotion for his new movie and I'm catching up right now with all of them. Can't wait to see him doing promotion for this movie.

I'm planning on seeing St. Vincent in the next few days, really curious to see how Jaeden, who is also in St. Vincent, will be

Quote from Bill Murray on Jaeden, who also worked together on St. Vincent:
Quote:
Melfi on discovering Jaeden Lieberher, the kid in St Vincent: “We sifted through 1,600 kids to find Jaden who can go toe-to-toe with Bill Murray. We found him in a Superbowl car commercial where he was being bullied. He was from Philly. He came in, auditioned for us and killed it.” Melfi says, “When I brought Jaden to set, Bill just shrugged.” Melfi says, “Bill told me, ‘I don’t want to know the kid until I know the kid.’ After he did a scene with him Bill told me, ‘The Kid is really good. He might be better than me.'”

Also really hope we will get a trailer for Untitled Hawaii before the end of the year. Hopefully Sony will attach it to The Interview, which took over the December 25 release spot.

Looks like there was a screening of the movie in NY earlier this week:
Quote:
Screening of untitled Cameron Crowe project w/Bradley Cooper, Emma Stone, Bill Murray, Rachel McAdams, Alec... https://www.swarmapp.com/c/3laP8B4WzIu
https://twitter.com/MADinNYC/status/533039616040136704
And Nick pointed out this tweet from last weekend to me:
Quote:
Chinatown News: Bradley Cooper Spotted in Downtown for Cameron Crowe Movie Shoot
https://twitter.com/GoForLocation/st...47209605689344
Maybe the screening was to see if the new/additional scene and/or re-shoot that Bradley possibly shot works?

Insidious 3 has now been pushed back a week, leaving Untitled Hawaii to open against San Andreas and Monster Trucks.
