MoviesOnline sat down last weekend with Paul Haggis at the Los Angeles press day for his new film, “In the Valley of Elah,â€ which he wrote, directed, and produced. The suspense drama tells the story of a fatherâ€™s (Tommy Lee Jones) search for his missing son, a soldier who is reported AWOL after recently returning from Iraq. Susan Sarandon and Charlize Theron also star. Haggis wrote two Best Film Oscar winners back-to-back: “Million Dollar Babyâ€ (2004) and “Crashâ€ (2005). For “Crash,â€ Haggis won Academy Awards for Best Picture and Best Original Screenplay, though the film also received an additional four nominations, including one for Haggisâ€™ direction. “Crashâ€ reaped numerous awards during its year of release from associations such as the IFP Spirit Awards, the Screen Actors Guild, and BAFTA.
You may have already seen this info over at Charlize Baby, but I thought I’d post it here too, just in case you missed it. Collider.com has posted 4 clips from the film on their site (click here to view) and ExtraTV.com has posted an interview clip (click here to view) with Charlize where she dispels all those rumors that have been flying around that she and Stuart are engaged.
Tona and I have also added some photos of Charlize at the ‘In the Valley of Elah’ photocall on the 26th.
If you’re wondering who I am – I am Tona. Stef and I decided to merge charlizefan.org and Charlize Central to one big fansite. A new layout for the site will complete it in a few days. I run iheartanna.org and nora-z.com.
I’ve updated the gallery with a few pictures and more will follow soon.

I also uploaded a few new icons to the fan art archive last night. Hopefully inspiration will strike again soon and I’ll be able to make a few more. 🙂
