Golden Globe-nominated James Franco will play satanic serial killer Richard Ramirez and direct the movie version of true-crime author Philip Carlo’s “The Night Stalker,” Page Six has learned. The “127 Hours” star, making his directing debut, will start shooting this summer when he’s on a break from Yale.
In 1985, Ramirez went on a rampage of sexual assault and murder, entering homes at night and generating fear throughout Southern California. He was later found guilty of 13 counts of murder, five attempted murders, 11 sexual assaults and 14 burglaries.
The film, also titled “The Night Stalker,” will show how Ramirez, currently on death row in California, became a killer. It’s being co-produced by Soundgarden lead singer Chris Cornell and Nicolas Constantine, who also wrote the screenplay.

The Gallopin’ Gaucho
This is the second short film featuring Mickey Mouse to be produced, following Plane Crazy and preceding Steamboat Willie. The Walt Disney Company completed the silent version on August 2, 1928, but failed to distribute it widely. Due to a lack of interest, the film was not given wide release until after Steamboat Willie and Plane Crazy had been released, making it the third Mickey Mouse short to be released, with the sound version released on December 30, 1928.
Both Mickey and Minnie Mouse had already made their debuts with the release of Plane Crazy on May 15, 1928. However the film had failed to catch the attention of the audience. The Gallopin’ Gaucho was a second attempt at success by co-directors Walt Disney and Ub Iwerks. The latter also served as the sole animator for it.
As the title implies, the short was intended as a parody of Douglas Fairbanks’s The Gaucho, a film first released on November 21, 1927. Following the original film, the events of the short take place in the Pampas of Argentina with Mickey cast as the gaucho of the title.
I love it when Mickey and Minnie dance.
En el olvido:
El cine Broadway, ubicado en la Calle Real de Sabana Grande, fue inaugurado el 13 de septiembre de 1951, con una amplia fachada y una capacidad de 812 puestos en un patio de tres secciones. Una maravilla de sala en cuanto a comodidad y lujo, ahora convertida en otro Pare de Sufrir.
* “El volumen de la gran fachada del Broadway, hoy en día, perdida para siempre”
