See what we missed by not being extras in the film?

It's August and time to get out your feathers, tie-dye, miniskirts, granny glasses, henna, love beads, bong, etc. and get ready for Taking Woodstock!!

Do you think maybe Ang took on this project as a favor to his producer James Schamus, since we know that JS loves all things hippie?
May 2019 be better for us all.

Taking Woodstock has no official release date for Belgium.  ???

I don't get it. This is an Ang Lee movie. And no one is going to get to see it over here? It's set to be released in September in the Netherlands. I really hope we get a chance to see it in the theater too.

Heya!
I was just watching the early evening re-run (of last night's) Colbert Report, and Comedy Central ran an ad saying that Ang Lee would be the guest on the Colbert Report later tonight!

Thanks, Amanda!  I was able to catch the last half of the interview just now.  I'll watch the repeat tomorrow morning.  It's great to see Ang out promoting the movie.  8)

I just caught up on this thread now, so I'll have to hope to catch tomorrow morning's Colbert repeat.

Yep, that's what I'm going to do too.  I almost always watch the Daily Show and the Colbert Report in the earlier evening re-run slot.  So, I have a one day lag usually.  I'm looking forward to seeing the Ang Lee interview in re-run form tonight.

I watched the interview this morning; Comedy Central repeats Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert between 9:00 and 10:00 am here.  Ang didn't seem to quite know what to make of Colbert, but he seemed amused and went along with him.  Very cute.

To see it on the official site, go here and click on the third box to the right in the "All New Video" box:

Here's a direct link to the Ang Lee interview on The Colbert Report.

http://www.colbertnation.com/the-colbert-report-videos/247154/august-19-2009/ang-lee


Colbert:  You directed Brokeback Mountain, Sense and Sensibility, The Ice Storm, and now Taking Woodstock.  Why don't you ever break the mold and do something new?  It's always the same thing, movie after movie.

(lots of laughter)

Colbert:  Why are you doing Taking Woodstock?  Why now?

Ang:  I did six tragedies in a row.  I just couldn't take it anymore.
