SLATE'S 'FLASHBACK' PODCAST LOOKS BACK AT 'PHANTOM'
AND AS DAFT PUNK CALL IT QUITS, EDGAR WRIGHT RECALLS THEIR ATTENDANCE AT 40TH
https://www.angelfire.com/de/palma/tweetdaft40th.jpg

Two days ago, Daft Punk announced that they were calling it quits. The duo had been inspired by seeing Brian De Palma's Phantom Of The Paradise early on, and worked with Paul Williams on the song "Touch" from the 2013 album Random Access Memories. Edgar Wright tweeted Monday:
When I hosted a 40th anniversary screening of Phantom Of The Paradise at the Cinerama dome, there were lots of superfans in the house; not least Daft Punk (sans masks). Pre-show, their manager asked politely that I not say they were present. I can now reveal they sat in G9 & G10.

Meanwhile, the latest episode of Slate's "Flashback" podcast has critics Dana Stevens and K. Austin Collins discussing Phantom Of The Paradise. The description lists "other titles mentioned in the episode" --

Name: "Harry Georgatos "

All the great filmmakers have gone to Netflix and Amazon to make films. Fincher's assassin movie THE KILLER is being given the green light at Netflix. Can't understand why DePalma can't give Netflix a go. Scorsese made THE IRISHMAN at Netflix and his next movie is up and going at Amazon. I'm sure any kind of DePalma movie would be a go on any streaming service. DePalma had said he's constantly approached by streaming services but declines which I find strange. Zack Snyder's ARMY OF THE DEAD is getting released on Netflix in May and Zack Snyder is a go director in Los Angeles.

I think what De Palma has talked about regarding streaming services was more about series? I mean, if Netflix was willing to give him money for a film to do as he likes, I don't see why he would say no. He is developing that one series adaptation from France, though, but so far not with any streamer involved (that we know of).

Brian DePalma did have a bad experience with the Paterno streaming movie that didn't go according to plan with studio interfering.

Yes, and that (Paterno) was HBO, who picked it up sometime during development. They called for one meeting too many and De Palma walked away from it.
