"Eric, what did you just want to say to me?"Nicole washed the tableware back to the living room and found that Eric didn't go to the company as usual, but still sat in the living room reading newspaper, and the girl was smart enough to realize that the other person was waiting for herself.
Eric instructed the girl to sit down and said: "Sleepless in Seattle is expected to start up in early September, and I have just been a little idle recently, so I think we should talk about movies."
The girl just nodded and looked at Eric waiting for the other person to continue.
"It has been two months, I think the "Sleepless in Seattle" script you have already remembered, let me talk about your understanding of this Heroine."Eric put the newspaper back on the coffee table, relaxedly tilted his legs and looked at Nicole, asking a question that would normally be asked during an Actor interview.
Nicole This two months time, indeed has been "Sleepless in Seattle" of their lines remember to know, to hear the question of Eric, the girl just a little thought, and quickly replied: "I think, Annie's biggest feature is that she is a very sensual woman, This is also the most important factor that can happen to this story, she just heard the actor's deeds on the radio, can fly solo to Seattle, just to see Sam side, but only for a film caused by the beautiful fantasy, resolutely and already engaged boyfriend break up, headed to the Empire State Building's top floor. ”
"Sounds, you don't seem to like this Heroine very much?"Eric asked with a smile.
The girl licked her thin lips. As a very savvy woman, Nicole would only sneer if she actually met a woman like Annie Reid, but the girl was smart enough not to answer Eric’s question directly. It is more euphemistic: "This does not prevent me from playing this role."
Eric shrugged and pushed the previously seen newspaper about "When Harry Met Sally": "Look at this first. I saw a more suitable actress "Sleepless in Seattle" Heroine, called Meg. · Ryan."
The girl's hand, which was originally placed on the maid's small apron, trembled a little, looked up and looked at Eric's expression carefully, and found no useful information. I can only take the newspaper and quickly read the propaganda soft paper about "When Harry Met Sally".
Eric explained next: "The film's performance is good, so the notorious Meg Ryan Box Office appeal will definitely increase greatly. If you can invite her to participate in Heroine, "Sleepless in Seattle" can just be in the New Year. When it comes to "When Harry Met Sally", it also has great benefits for Box Office."
"I……I have already signed the contract. ”The girl did not confidently weaken and argued.
"Of course, I did not say that I have to replace you, I just told you a possibility."Eric said: "If your performance can't satisfy me, we also clearly stated on the contract that I have the right to replace Heroine in the middle, but I believe that you have this potential and will give you a chance."
In the memory, Nicole has indeed played this kind of sweet-hearted silly white sweet character, which is the "family fairy wife" of the previous life in 2005. The sweetheart witch Isabelle, who was shaped by the girl in the movie, was very successful and completely subverted her sexy cold. Brilliant screen image. But that movie's plot mishap too many and did not have any bright spot, eventually led to the movie's defeat, moreover, the male protagonist Will Ferrell also was Nicole in the acting the very formidable, estimated did not appear occasionally in his side that resembles Tom Cruise Manager role Grab Mirror, a lot of people think that the role is the production side deliberately find to stir up the topic, because Tom Cruise did play the manager role in "Mr. Sweetheart", although it was a sports manager.
“……Thank you," the girl heard Eric's last words and gave her a sigh of relief.
"Well, let's say another thing. You have been in my house for more than two months. It's time to leave."
"Ah, that…Isn't there still another month to boot? ”The girl looked up, though there was no room in her face, but some uneasy, because she knew, oneself can get this role, pay is for Eric to do a little maid, now still have one months, the other side let oneself leave, the girl can't help to produce a kind of in convenience store bought something, But did not pay the idea of money, not enough money, Boss but have the right to the goods to go back ah.
Eric didn't quite understand why the girl was upset, but she patiently explained: "Below next month, "Sleepless in Seattle" will begin formal preparations, and some information will be slowly revealed to the public, such as male and female stars. By then, the media will be very curious about who you are. In order to carry out the pre-heating propaganda, you must definitely show up from time to time, and it is definitely inappropriate to live in me. ”
The girl nodded: "I understand, then I…Moving out today? ”
"Don't worry too much, I will let people find a house for you first. One more thing is also very important. After you move out, the "When Harry Met Sally", you take the time to read it several times. I hope you can try to figure out Meg Ryan's performance style. My ideal Annie and her. The image in this movie is similar. ”
"Do you want me to imitate?"The girl leaned forward slightly and asked carefully.
Eric reached out and said, "No, it's not an imitation, and you can't imitate it. The temperament of the two of you is different." Meg Ryan is the standard sweetheart actress, and her play will be limited to death for a long time. If you want to imitate it too much, you will definitely be labeled as a sweetheart in the future, which is not good for your future development. I want you to figure out what Meg Ryan is looking for, that kind of…Ok, let's say that the white point is a little silly little details. ”
If you can successfully enter Hollywood, Nicole doesn't mind being tagged. In Hollywood, sweetheart is always better than a vase. But she also heard that Eric was thinking about her future, so she nodded obediently.
After a few more chats, Eric stood up and picked up his coat and put it on: "So, take the time to pack your luggage. When you find a good house, you will move out immediately. I am going to the company."
Nicole also quickly got up and smiled at Eric, trying to send a man out.
Eric saw the little smiley face of the girl and couldn't help but stop: "Nicole, smile again, let me see."
The girl is somewhat unclear, but she is very obedient to reveal a smile, exaggerated more than just a smile, revealing two small rabbit teeth.
Eric shook his head in disappointment: "Forget it, you still don't laugh like this. It feels like you are planning to do something bad. Just like a smile, it's good and more practice."
"I will," the girl has been sending Eric out of the door before returning to the villa, habitually doing a routine cleaning. Two hours later, the girl who finished everything sat awkwardly on the sofa in the living room. Looking at everything around.
“Eric, this is the new line you want and the two studios of Miramax.”In Firefly's office, Eric's assistant, Alan, placed two paper bags in front of Eric.
"First put it here. You contact Robert Shee of the new line and the Weinstein brother of Miramax. When are you free? I want to have a meal with them. As for the purpose, I don’t have to hide it. You give it a little. Look at each other."Eric confessed while he was writing down.
Alan wrote down Eric's embarrassment in the memo before he looked up: "Eric, is there anything else?"
“Well, wait a minute,” Eric continued, bowing his head and handing the note to Alan after a while: “There are two more things. The first one is to rent an apartment in Beverly Hills. Don’t be too expensive, the monthly rent does not exceed The kind of five thousand USD. The second one is to register an empty shell Film Studio in my name according to the name on the sticky note paper. I am useful. ”
Alan looked at the sticky note and read it again: "Flower Films ?"
“Well,” Eric nodded and explained nothing: “Go and do it, the apartment is going to be faster, and it’s best to rent it in these two days.”
"I will pay attention, but is the apartment rent a company account?"
"No, personally, you can find a good house and let the property manager prepare the contract."
Alan posted the note paper on the booklet of his memo and confirmed a few things to Eric before leaving the Eric office.
When the office door closed, Eric opened the two company materials. Although the recent launch of Firefly's distribution channel, Eric did not have the idea of starting from scratch, the most important thing is that his time is very tight, so the acquisition of a distribution channel Film Studio is the most convenient and fast.
And the memory, Eric can think of two very potential film Studio is the new line and Miramax, as for the new century almost to become the film giants new word heap of lions door film Industry now have not appeared, Orion, United Artis Film Studio, such as TS and Samsung, has also been tightly tied to six, and there is no possibility of his takeover, even if he buys it with a high price, and realizes that his six-strong-arm-a-dozen will not be easy to let go. Although in this era, there are still many second- and third-line Film Studios that are the same as the new line and Miramax, but Eric previous life has never heard of it. It is estimated that those companies will completely lose their independence when they are merged. Not left, or because of poor management or investment failure.
