    And I wonder...how faithful to the original story do we think they will be? Hollywood has it's way of ruining books going to film...if it winds up being "Little House on the Prairie"........ :angry:

    what do you mean, "QUE?"
    "Que?" as in "por que?"?
    well a short story by annie proulx called brokeback mountain is being
    made into a big blockbuster mainstream hollywood movie! the catch
    it's ubber gay and quite graphic! so this could be it for the gay community,
    acceptance in pop culture or atleast the beginning of it. Imagine jake gylenhaal
    and heath ledger going at it annie proulx style! :p

    I believe the whole sentence was ¿qué en el infierno usted está hablando? I checked IMDB and it's still pre-production. It should be out in June, but that's subject to change or even deletion.

    Catch Gyllenhaal in Donnie Darko. Amazing.

    As for Ledger - don't bother.

    Oh, and Brokeback Mountain was a homoerotic novel about these two ranchers. You can probably find it at Amazon.

    Well, as of today, Ang Lee is saying that he is going to "back off" the sexuality and homo overtones! He stated that "two men herding sheep is sexier than two men making love"...sigh. He also stated he may cut even the M2M kiss. Big SIGH.
    Also, he said that the movie and it's study in relationships and loving applies to everyone...BUT THE BOOK WAS ABOUT TWO MEN !!! :angry: :angry: :angry: :angry: :angry: :angry: :( :( :( :( :( :(

    Can you say "COP OUT"? If they didn't have the balls to make this film in a manner at least somewhat resembling the book, I wish they would not do it at all. I thought (and was wrong) that Ang Lee had bigger ones than this. I'm not asking them to make a porn film, BUT IT WAS A GAY ROMANCE NOVEL. Geez. :angry:

    Most actors wouldn't do a gay sex scene anyway. (Remember the SNL sketch when the audience all thought Lucy Lawless was gay?) Actually, many actors won't do a sex scene regardless of the parts of the other participant. And besides which, male nudity itself is a taboo, so you can figure gay sex is too.

    And yeah, I agree, it's a cop out.

    BRMSTN69: I'm sorry but not making the movie like the book for fear of negative response would be a COP-OUT; But using big name stars and changing the story to appeal to mainstream audiances for the sake of box office sales is being a SELL-OUT!!!

    easy_eros: Guess what guys!!! you know all those stories about how ang lee is going to compromise the movie for the sake of the homophobes? turns out they're just rumors!!! they just recently shot the kissing and the sex scene. Apparently heath and jake, lets just say, were a little TOO comfortable :eek:
