Look what Frank Marshall (KK's husband) liked Confus



Bob Iger's bad decisions... like Solo release date? The rumour was that it was Disney who pushed for the date to stay at May rather than moving back to December, which was what LFL wanted.

Kind of ties in with those rumours of KK and Iger not seeing eye to eye.

In essence, some of the stuff KK has being blamed for should actually be laid at Iger's feet.

I'm sorry that this is not linked directly to the topic but I didn't want to create a new thread and can't find KK's thread. The story from THR is still the one of the most jaw-dropping thing I've read about Hollywood nowadays. If I understand correctly, they didn't find this person so it's not closed case. I heard nothing in SW's fandom about this, for example, but that's understandable - KK is not that popular topic. Does somebody heard about this or know some new details?

For more than a year, some of the most powerful women in entertainment — including Amy Pascal, Kathleen Kennedy, Stacey Snider and a 'Homeland' director — have been impersonated by a cunning thief who targets insiders with promises of work, then bilks them out of thousands of dollars. The Hollywood Reporter has obtained exclusive audio recordings of the savvy imposter as victims come forward and a global investigation heats up.

One such ex-military target was Rudy Reyes, an actor (HBO's Generation Kill) and former U.S. Marine who received a call from a man purporting to be producer Beau Flynn (San Andreas, Rampage), who said he was calling on behalf of Lucasfilm's Kennedy. When Reyes and his manager, Adam Handelsman, eventually spoke to the woman — who said she was Kennedy — she said she was interested in casting the ex-Marine as a supporting actor in Indiana Jones 5. The trio spoke for about 10 minutes. Then the woman said she was having trouble hearing and requested to speak to Reyes alone.

In an email, Handelsman summarizes the call between the con woman and his client:

"The first 30 minutes of the conversation was extremely professional. Then it started to get extremely sexual. She discussed how her husband Frank Marshall was never around [ Shocked Laughing Mad ], and that Rudy could stay in her Los Feliz home. She told Rudy that the role was his but asked over and over 'what was he going to do for her?' She was explicit in her request. Rudy repeatedly said no. She said she made Harrison Ford and Tom Cruise and will make him a star. This was against his morals, his warrior ethos — all he wanted to do was work. He fully rebuffed all of her sexual advances. She hung up."

A couple of days later, the man claiming to be Beau Flynn called Handelsman back. He alleged, without evidence, that Reyes had propositioned Kennedy during their one-on-one call. He said the call had been taped and threatened to expose Reyes. When Handelsman responded that California requires two-party consent to tape calls and accused the man of committing a felony, the man grew flustered and hung up.

Putting this here since it seems to be the general KK thread.

KK is the first woman to get the Academy's Irving G. Thaling Award (with Frank Marshall), which is
presented to creative producers “whose body of work reflects a consistently high quality of motion picture production.”

What was that about her being inept and leaving LF? Razz

And yet I still had to read that her work on Lucasfilm doesn't count because obviously the Star Wars movies were going to be on Top list because of their names. Rolling Eyes
Some people would like to choke rather than admit she is doing great with SW.

No matter, I'm happy for her to get this award, she deserves it (when I watch old and good movies, I always find her name and it had become a kind of game for me) and I hope she stay a loooong time with Lucasfilm so some people can stay mad about it.

WOW, just wow. I hadn't seen this before. So whatever happened to this impersonator? Was he/she/they ever apprehended?
