The 2000 comedy cemented John Cusack's rom-com rep, and wound up on many viewers' Top 10 lists. But its real impact took years to be felt.
UPDATE: Well, that was fast. Deadline reports that 20th Century Fox TV has shelved the planned series version of Say Anything because of Cameron Crowe’s objections to it. As Deadline reported Monday, NBC may have ordered a script for a television series follow-up to the iconic 1989 teen romance Say Anything, but now the project is in jeopardy over objections from the film’s writer and director, Cameron Crowe, as well as star John Cusack. Twitter erupted over the news (the general reaction from fans: no bueno), and Crowe and Cusack added to the fire in hopes of burning the project down.
Jason Patric, Bruce Willis and John Cusack Collide in the First Trailer for ‘The Prince’ Not long ago, the most aggravating part of being the father of a teenage daughter was having to make nice with their loser boyfriends. As we see in the first trailer for The Prince, Jason Patric finds himself in exactly such a predicament. The 40-plus actor follows in the Dockers-friendly footsteps of Liam Neeson in the Taken movies (and Nicolas Cage in Stolen, and Aaron Eckhart in Erased, and Kevin Costner in 3 Days to Kill) playing the paternal hero with a violent past.
For pretty much everyone, the boombox scene is the defining moment of the film, a proud and unapologetic symbol of young love and old-school movie romance. It was a scene John Cusack originally didn’t want to do. And even when he did, it wasn’t Gabriel’s “In Your Eyes” that was booming from that box.
