Erik Rinsch was one of the five directors who created films for Philips ups the ante after Carousel - using only five lines. His short, called "The gift" , shows a futuristic police state Moscow with robots and bad guys, and was apparently the starting bell of a bidding war according to heatvisionblog.

On Wednesday, the day the short came out, a bidding war broke out between several studios -- longtime rivals Warner Bros. and Fox are in the mix, according to sources -- who see feature potential in the short. Some speculate the project will end up at Fox, because Rinsch is part of the stable of RSA, Ridley Scott's commercial house that produced the short, and Scott's longtime association with Fox.

Yet another irritant in Greek–Turkish relations has been found in Sweden, and this time it's yogurt.
The man who is depicted on the packaging of Lindahls Mejeri's best seller, the turkish yogurt, has found out that his face graces a Turkish yogurt package and taken grave offense. He's suing Lindahl's for 50 million SEK, as he is Greek, and still living in Greece and the packaging is ruining his image.

Lindahl's spokesperson Thomas Axelsson says to Sydsvenskan: "We're really surprised about all this. We bought the photo as an image of a Turkish man. On the picture description it said that he was Turkish." They bought the image from a stock photo agency.
