News on "Tetro"

It's been buzzing with news on Tetro and I heard that the H&M ads are up in Sweden? If anyone has pics, please please let me know, I am eager to see them :-)

Back to the movies:

Francis Ford Coppola Updates on Tetro with Vincent Gallo

No, it’s not a tidbit about Terminator 4, it’s one regarding a real director and one of the best ever. Over on the official site for Tetro, his latest film set for release this year, Francis Ford Coppola has posted a brief video update on the $15 million drama (shooting has completed in Argentina), the actors involved, including lead actor Vincent Gallo (Buffalo 66, Tumblr), and so forth. We also get a handheld panorama of his nic-nac-friendly work station out in Napa Valley. Personally, I get overly-occupied with looking at creative spaces online. Todd Selby should get out there stat.

Coppola looks and sounds pleased with how the process is going, calling Gallo “brilliant,” and remarking that Tetro is the first “original screenplay” he’s written since The Conversation (not too shabby, that one). He then points the camera over to a new, unrelated script he’s writing. As we reported last year, Tetro follows two brothers, the titular eldest played by Gallo, the other by newbie Alden Ehrenreich, who endure “rivalries born out of creative differences passed down through generations of an artistic Italian immigrant family.” Also co-starring are Maribel Verdu (Pan’s Labryinth) as a love interest, and Carmen Maura (Volver) in a role originally intended for Javier Bardem, who not uncharacteristically dropped out. This is subject matter that Coppola knows like a glass of wine—referring to it as semi-autobiographical—and I get a damn good feeling about it. If only Michael V. Gazzo were alive to shout at Gallo about the good ol’ days.

The official homepage for Tetro, which is worth a visit can be found at (who would have guessed?):

METROPIA - So, what happens in the movie?

IMDB now knows what METROPIA is about so here we go:

METROPIA is taking place in a not-so-distant, terrifying Europe. The world is running out of oil and the net of undergrounds has been connected, creating a gigantic web underneath Europe. Roger (Vincent Gallo) from a suburb of Stockholm tries to stay away from the underground. He thinks it's unpleasant and sometimes he hears a strange voice in is head
One day Roger finds out that his life is controlled in every detail. He tries to break free. To succeed he needs super-model Nina (Juliette Lewis) to help him. Or is it maybe Nina that needs Roger?

Picture Madness

So this is a long one - I have been seriously thinking about it and decided not to be a bitch.

The Book - Vincent Gallo 1962-1999 - I own it. I was looking for it from when it came out until last year and it is probably one of my most priced possessions ever since I was lucky enough to get it for a lot cheaper than I would have actually paid from someone on eBay.

Anyway - I know what it feels like to know it's out there, not to own it and to wonder what it looks like. However, as it is a priced possession for me, I can't make myself squash it onto a scanner because I know it will harm the binding. What I could do, however, was take some pics of it. I did not put watermarks on them because I don't like watermarks or stuff like that but I kindly ask you to at least link back here and say where you got them from if you want to repost them. If the quality allows it, of course feel free to turn them into icons, sigs or whatever you do with pics these days. ;-)


Remember the animated film with Vincent Gallo and Juliette Lewis doing the voices (among others)? A first teaser has surfaced that I don't want to keep from you even though, as most teaser trailers, it doesn't really give away a lot.

Vincent Gallo's Shopping Advice

Seriously, I don't know where all these stories are coming from at the moment but as I want to collect them all, here is the newest piece of important "news" on Mr. Gallo.

Let me say that the mentioned wallet has been in Vincent's online shop for, like, ages, if I remember it right. So it's not really that brand new and everyone familiar with Gallo knows by now that he has some weird stuff to buy in his shop. Me, I am still saving up for that one night stand ;-)

If any of you have some money left, you can buy it right here:

Now for the story.

Blackbookmag ( has it that:

Vincent Gallo wants you to buy a wallet. Not just any wallet -- the Lucky Buck Lucky [Bleep] Wallet ($750). That’s a hefty price tag, but Gallo promises it will “open doors” and “garner respect,” but most importantly the wallet will “get you laid.” No word on whether it gets you a discount on Gallo's efforts to retail his own sperm.

And another pic from the Boss Show

Modeling for H&M

So according to this source ( Mr Gallo has apparently done a shooting for H&M. I'm pretty excited about this if it turns out to be true because, even though I don't really like the clothing they sell too much, they have always managed to do great campaigns. And I can't wait to see pics and ads of Vincent Gallo all over town ;-)
