Hey everybody,
Sorry it's been a while. Although, I just realized that you have to insert the letters down the bottom to post a response. A couple of months ago I posted a nice big letter and judging by the response I'm getting for not writing enough, I guess the letter never made it on the web.
It was basically how "Chaos Theory" was a nice shoot. Ryan Reynolds and Emily Mortimer were great to work with and very talented. And I think the director Marcos Siega has done something interesting with the movie. I also mentioned our solar eclipse odyssey in Turkey, but anyway time has moved on so here is where I'm at now: These past few months have been nerve wrecking and exciting for me. As of now, I have my passion project "Battle In Seattle" fully financed!!!!!
I have two cast attached and I'm finalizing deals to get casting directors and my direcor of photography on board. In a couple of weeks the project will be officially announced and we will begin the casting process which is the truly daunting part.
If all goes well we will be shooting in mid October in Vancouver and Seattle. So keep your fingers and toes crossed because this film means more to me than anything else I have ever done.
In case anyone from Vancouver reads this we are going to need plenty of extras for crowd scenes when we come to shoot so if you want to be in the movie just look out for us in Vancouver in the fall.
The "best man" is playing on ABC family on July 9th. If you liked "shooting fish" ,it is similar in that it's the same director.
I hope you enjoy it. I think it's a really great little movie and I had a lot of fun making it. I'm bummed that it didn't get a theatrical release, but at least it's getting seen.
That's the news for now. I will try and keep in touch but just know that if all goes well I am about to get seriously busy. Just because I don't write for a while it doesn't mean I don't appreciate all your support. It means a great deal to me.
Lot's of love
Stu

Hey everyone. Sorry I haven't written for a while. I was in Berlin with Charlize. Yes she has been injured but she's going to be fine. About all the rumors, i'll say it again: We are not getting married and no, Charlize isn't getting implants. And any other rumor you've heard probably isn't true either!
I will be in Toronto on the 12th for the premiere of "Clouds". I hope you all like it. After that I will be in London for a few months, but I promise to try and keep in touch with all of you. Thanks for the King David idea. I'm going to read it when I get a chance. Lindsay, if you read this I just wanted to say sorry we didn't get to chat. It was pretty crazy in the airport and I was looking for a freind of mine.
To webmaster Lara: I wanted to say thankyou for all yours and Greg's hard work. Vanessa keeps asking me am I posting, and I keep telling her, yes. So hopefully she is relaying my answers to you. And to everyone who writes in-Thankyou. I am starting to get to know all the regulars!
Love to you all. Stu.xxx
PS. Love the Atlantis/Ireland connection. I knew it. If anyone is interested, I am trying to help an organization that is trying to save one of our greatest national treasures, the hill of Tara, from being destroyed by mindless greed. The more people who sign the petition the better. And you will be helping to preserve Irelands spiritual heart. The web site is taraskryne.org. Ta.

Hello everyone. Me again.
Thanks for all your messages and support.
Just read that I am getting married and supposedly a baby is on the way!
My response: Don't belive all you read!
Although we might get married one day, we are not getting hitched just
yet.
I will be going to Europe soon to make a film called "The Best Man". It is a romantic comedy with the director who I did "Shooting Fish" with. Should be fun.
And then I hope to make my own movie that I have spent the last two and a half years writing. Wish me luck!
A few other books I thought of are:
Anais Nin- Under a glass bell
Jean Dominique bauby-The diving bell and the butterfly
Niall Williams-Four letters of love.

I am happy to hear that a few of you have read some of my recommendations and got something out of them.
Love to all.
Stu.x

I know someone once pretended to be me on this site. My agent called me one day to confirm that I had been posting letters. But I hadn't.
I have never sent a letter until yesterday. But this is me!
To answer some questions:
I will not be returning to finish "Goal". Michael Winterbottom walked off the picture because of disagreements with the producers. To work with him was the only reason I was on Goal. So sadly,it's not happening.
Yes I will be in Berlin visiting Charlize sometimes.
I never recommended any books! Although if the book I am supposed to have recommended is Roddy Doyles "The Barrytown Trilogy", I would. It is a great insight into Northside Dubliners, which is where I am from.
I would also recommend:
The Alchemist-Paul Coehlo
Jitterbug Perfume-Tom Robbins.
Man & His Symbols-Carl jung.
The Da Vinci Code-Dan Brown
Perfume-Patrick Suskind
Herman Hesse-Narciss&Goldmund
Lady Chatterly's Lover-D.H.Lawrence.
Ham On Rye-Bukowski.

It's hard to recommend books because there are so many great ones, but thats a start.
Stu.x

This thing works!
I went on this site a while ago and tried to send a note to all you lovely people who have written in, but it didn't post my letter.
Must have pressed the right button this time.
Well, all you lovely people, thank you so much for supporting me. I do read this guest book from time to time and it's nice to know that you enjoy my work.
"Head In the Clouds" will go to the Toronto, and Venice film festival in september. I think they will release it in the States in September also. I hope you all like it. No fangs, but I am very proud of it.
Once again, thanks for all your input.
Stu.
PS. I love it when someone writes a message, and at the end, adds- "You will probably never read this stuart".....
Sometimes I do!
