This is an interview with Julie Delpy and she talks about her upcoming projects.

Keanu produces the next film by Julie Delpy about a group of artists in 1908: "Since I have a child, I write quite different things. It will be a more naive, more fun film."

As Keanu Reeves, star of Hollywood blockbusters such as Speed and The Matrix, visits China to promote his directorial debut Man of Tai Chi, an increasing number of Hollywood films are beginning to feature more and more Chinese elements.

I don't know if you're familiar with the MBTI (Myers-Briggs Type Indicator) personality test, but I think Keanu is a strong P, who likes to keep his options open.

I've noticed that if he has to make a decision on his favorite actor, band, book, author, movie, sandwich, whatever he'll always try to wiggle out of it. However if you ask him to name a few of his favorite actors, books, sandwiches etc. he'll probably name several. I guess just choosing one feels too final for him.

Yes, he understands that our experience of life is dependent on the actions of our body speech and mind. So why limit yourself with your own opinions? He is wise and wonderful. And yes, he will deny it. :)

Brooklyn Nets coach Jason Kidd attended a special screening of Matt Damon's new sci-fi movie Elysium on Tuesday night.

The Source caught up with Kidd to find out how he felt about the movie, which takes place in the year 2154. The rich live on a high-tech space station called 'Elysium' with access to all of the best amenities, and the rest of the population lives on the decrepit Earth.

When asked if he grew up with any movies or books that led him to believe the world would turn out anything like Elysium, Kidd used the opportunity to talk about coaching.

"I'm a big fan of the Matrix. I thought that was a classic...he's fighting for what he believes in and so it's something that hopefully when I see them, now that I'm a coach, I can use this as one of my tools."

Wait, what?

The interviewer continues by asking Kidd how the new Nets are fitting in.

"They've been great, we got a great group of guys, and so I'm very excited about the veteran guys and I'm looking forward to it," Kidd said. "But you know, when you come to movies like this, you pick up different things. So I'm excited to see what this brings."

The highlight of the upcoming NBA season will be seeing footage of Kidd use Morpheus-isms on Andrei Kirilenko.

Potential half time speech:

"Let me tell you why you're here. You're here because you know something. What you know, you can't explain. But you feel it. You felt it your entire life. That there's something wrong with the world. You don't know what it is, but it's there. Like a splinter in your mind - driving you mad. It is this feeling that has brought you to me. Do you know what I'm talking about?"

It may come as no surprise that Keanu Reeves, who opts to intersperse mega-hits like Speed with quirkier art-house fare like Little Buddha, isn’t exactly motivated by money

The actor has even signed away a sizeable back-end deal for two Matrix sequels, the Wall Street Journal reported Friday in a profile of Reeves’ erratic Hollywood career.

According to the paper, Reeves handed over his valuable profit-sharing points to the franchise’s special-effects and costume-design team. Whoa, dude!

“He felt that they were the ones who made the movie and that they should participate,” an unnamed movie executive tells the Journal.

And it’s not the first time that Reeves has shared his movie spoils. On The Devil’s Advocate, Reeves shaved his salary by a few million dollars so that producers could afford Al Pacino, and he did the same thing on The Replacements to be able to work with Gene Hackman, according to the Journal.

Keeping Keanu Happy

But don’t cry for Reeves’ bank account: the actor was paid $10 million upfront for The Matrix and ended up earning $35 million from back-end deals when the film became a hit. If it were up to studio execs — and doubtless, most moviegoers — Reeves would be cast only in profitable, surefire action movies like The Matrix and Speed. Instead, says the Journal, Warner Bros. compromises with the actor, greenlighting movies like Sweet November or the upcoming baseball movie, Hardball, that no one particularly wants to see to secure Reeves’ services for the big movies.

Still, the actor’s quest for diverse roles paid off recently when he won unexpected praise for his turn as a redneck wife beater in the little-seen The Gift.
