Hollywood isn't happy unless it has a cause. A favorite over the years has been human rights. Remember the song, "Ain't Gonna Play Sun City" to bring attention to Apartheid in South Africa? I wonder if that would have happened if South Africa had been looking to get into the movie business.
Well, guess who is?! Looks like the big Hollywood Studios are falling all over themselves in a race to set up shop in....
China! Can you believe it? Because we know how great China treats its people and what a swell government they have! Studios are planning to invest $150 million over the next few years. Who are the "they" I'm speaking of? Sony's Columbia Tristar Pictures unit, Time Warner's Warner Brothers, Merchant Ivory Productions... hell even Harvey Weinstein is planning on producing films in China. But they're not the only ones -- looks like America's sweetheart, Walt Disney Pictures, is planning on shooting a live-action martial-arts remake of Snow White over there.
Am I the only one who thinks something's wrong with this picture?
