"Geisha" troubles…And all that Jazz

"Geisha" troubles…And all that Jazz
Caffeinated Clint

Miramax is playing hardball with “Chicago” director Rob Marshall, and the long-planned “Memoirs of a Geisha” gets another strike against it. According to Variety, Marshall’s talks to helm the film have stalled over whether Miramax, which has an option on Marshall, will come on board as a co-producer on the film. Marshall had signaled interest in helming the adaptation of Arthur Gold’s novel, the long-delayed project being produced by Red Wagon for Columbia and DreamWorks. Things got complicated, however, after Miramax notified Marshall that it planned to exercise its option on him to direct his second feature for the company. Talks ensued among Miramax, Columbia and DreamWorks. Several scenarios were put on the table whereby Miramax would join as a co-producer, but none was acceptable to all three studios.
