Next of Kinski

When she works in Texas, Berlin-born Nastassja Kinski brings a link to her native Europe. When she made Paris, Texas in 1984, her comrade was German director Wim Wenders; this time, it was Italian director Antonio Tibaldi . In August and September Kinski was in Austin shooting Little Boy Blue , the story of a young man’s struggle for happiness in a dysfunctional family. Ryan Phillippe ( White Squall ) is the troubled teen; John Savage plays an emotionally scarred Vietnam veteran. The film may debut at the Sundance Film Festival next January.…The bio-pic Selena started filming in San Antonio and Corpus Christi this summer. Jennifer Lopez ( Money Train ) portrays the slain tejano singer, and Edward James Olmos is her father-manager, Abraham Quintanilla, Jr. Olmos reportedly is putting on 85 pounds for the part. ¡ Buen provecho ! Look for Selena next summer.… Tom Berenger will be in Palestine, Conroe, and Bandera this fall shooting The Rough Riders , a TV mini-series directed by John Milius (who co-wrote Apocalypse Now ). Berenger plays Teddy Roosevelt in his late thirties, before he was our nation’s portly twenty-sixth president—no weight gain necessary. The Rough Riders will air sometime next year.
