Frost / Nixon media

Matthew takes a swim

smallcircusmidget, of IMDb, who claims to have already seen a screening of Frost/Nixon, had the following to say about it

Thought it was going to be a typical mass-audience screening, but showed up and it was just 1 screen and ol' Ron sittin in back. I was also one of the 20 selected to be in a discussion group after the screening which Ron sat in on as well. For the most part we all really liked it with few exceptions or reservations. The performances were exceptional and just may have an oscar or two possible.

Frank Langella Provides 'Frost/Nixon' Film Details

Thanks to Matthieu from the forum who found this recent interview with Frank Langella.  

We should probably hear more by the time Langella does the rounds for Ron Howard's version of Peter Morgan's stage play Frost/Nixon, but Langella was coerced into telling us a few tidbits about what we might expect from the transition to the screen. "Ron Howard was very respectful, very," he said. "He was actually adamant that the script be preserved almost to the word, and it was, and maybe in addition of maybe ten or twelve minutes of outside stories about Nixon and Frost, but what happens in their private lives. Patty's a character and I play the piano in it, and you'll see me getting into the helicopter, and you see me walking through Yorba Linda and Casa Pacifica. What he did was he mixed in some of Nixon's private life and some of Frost's, so that when the combatants come together, we know more about them." But that was all Mr. Langella was going to say about the anticipated film at this time.

According to the LA Times, there is a possible labor dispute with actors

...industrywide scramble to assemble films that can be completed before a potential talent strike shuts down film production next summer, according to interviews with two dozen studio executives, agents, producers and screenwriters. Studio executives and producers are accelerating screenplay revisions and A-list directors are postponing editing so they can compile footage on back-to-back movies should actors swap punch lines for picket lines.
