Of course, Weinstein was in the middle of it all too. The other night he told me he has been trying for years to match box office success with critical success for Haynes in various projects, and this time he thinks it has all come together. Looks entirely possible, but there is no question this film likely will be the linchpin of TWC’s Oscar campaign. The Oscar-nominated director behind their 2014 Best Picture nominee (and Adapted Screenplay winner) The Imitation Game, Morten Tyldum also was in the house. He has been doing duty on one of the many juries for this festival but told me he already wrapped. He said he is going to start shooting Sony’s Passengers in September starring Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt. It’s a biggie. I asked how he liked working with new Sony honcho Tom Rothman, and so far, so good. Tyldum likes his direct, no-nonsense style.
