Out and about: Coming out may have lost Ellen DeGeneres her sitcom, but it seems Hollywood is bravely coming to terms with the sexuality of Ellen's partner, Anne Heche. The Oscar-nominated actress, who impressed in Wag the Dog and Donnie Brasco, had been a casting-couch pariah since she came out as DeGeneres' lover. Recently, however, the actress reports that producers have been less queasy, and reports suggest that Heche is up for the Janet Leigh role in Gus Van Sant's re-make of Psycho.
Is it a bird, is it a plane? No, it's Ingmar Bergman. Sixteen years after the 79-year-old Swedish director retired with his Oscar-winning Fanny and Alexander, he announced at his first press conference in 10 years his intention to produce a new film. He described Trolosa (literally, "faithless') as "a passionate drama, almost a thriller". Cameras roll next summer, directed by Bergman's former lover Liv Ullman.
