Farenheit Review & LIS Explanation

By Garth Franklin Monday May 17th 2004 10:46PM

A reporter for The New York Times was invited to a screening of "Fahrenheit 9/11" last week and has delivered the first verdict:

"The Michael Moore documentary the Walt Disney Company deemed too partisan to distribute offers few new revelations about the connections between President Bush and prominent Saudi Arabian families, including that of Osama bin Laden. But this film, "Fahrenheit 9/11," which is scheduled to make its debut today at the Cannes International Film Festival, contains stark images of civilian casualties and disillusioned soldiers from the Iraq war zone that have rarely, if ever, been shown on American television. And the muckracking craft evident in this nearly two-hour attack on President Bush's tenure in the White House is likely to have a galvanizing effect among both conservatives and liberals should the film be widely distributed this summer".

  Another project in limbo right now is the &quot;Lost in Space&quot; remake series which hasn't been slated for this Fall by The WB network. Now, comes the reasoning why from the producers and <a href="http://jup2.com" target="_blank">Jup2.Com</a>:

""The Robinsons: Lost in Space" will not be seen on the WB this fall. The inability to sign a top-flight show runner before the "up-fronts" in NYC next week will keep the show on the shelf, at least for the present. The WB is still very keen on the series and will work with Fox and Synthesis to find and hire a qualified writer/producer in time for mid-season. As far as Jon and I are concerned, we'd rather do the show right -- or not at all. The WB's decision to wait until we find the right creative partner is a smart one"
