Minnie Driver: 'My job is rejection'She said: "My job is 90 per cent rejection. It just is. Unless you're Angelina Jolie or maybe one of a handful of actors working amongst the millions you are going to be not getting stuff more than you're getting stuff. But life is so much bigger than work."

Landesman, a New York Times Magazine foreign correspondent, most recently scripted The Mission
for Warner Bros. That film is about Operation Jaque, a daring rescue of
15 captives that included former presidential candidate Ingrid
Betancourt from FARC militants who moved the hostages around in the
Colombian jungles some of them being held as long as 15 years. That film
has David O Russell circling as director, with Brad Pitt being courted to
star. Landesman also scripted a movie based on former FBI #2 man Mark
Felt, who admitted he was the “Deep Throat” who helped Woodward and
Bernstein crack the Watergate conspiracy and end Richard Nixon’s
presidency. That project is at Universal with Playtone producing.
