Which ties into one of next year's likely highlights: Ang Lee's Taking Woodstock. It also happens to have Emile Hirsch on the sidelines and yet another gay-themed historical bent. Lee's making the film alongside longtime collaborative partner James Schamus, who produced something called Brokeback Mountain. Maybe you've heard of it... The true story follows Elliot Tiber, a gay interior designer (redundant) in the Catskills who helps make Woodstock the counter-culture event of the decade. Notable elements include an encounter with a transvestite played by Liev Schreiber, and Tiber's affair with a closeted married man, played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan. Lee's casting agent knows exactly what we want to see!
That's all very good news, right? Now for the bad news.... Poor Emile, the ads were wrong!
