Hilary has landed a role she can sink her teeth into, or vice versa. The Oscar winner actually will play the heroine being hunted by vampires in the movie version of the John Marks novel “Fangland.” Swank’s production company optioned the book by the former “60 Minutes” producer. It is set at a TV news magazine called “The Hour,” where bloodthirsty vampires roam the halls. The “Dracula” meets “Network” tale is said to reflect the sometimes hellish environment of the real “60 Minutes.”
Hilary was yesturday at Costume Institute Gala at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. Few pictures are now in gallery.
Escadas celebratory party to re-open its flagship store in the Beverly Wilshire Hotel was no ordinary get-together: Hilary Swank co-hosted with Vogue, French disco music blared all the way down Wilshire Boulevard to Barneys, and the interior of the 6,000-square-foot store, bedecked with black and white and chandeliers, felt more like some Euro disco than an Escada store. But after all, the party was themed Club Escada.
Swank posed for photos in her slinky dress with no jewelry, but held hands all night with her CAA agent John Campisi, who never left her side. Im very proud of Escada for this amazing store, said Swank. The store does not look like anything else on Rodeo Drive, and a lot of love and care went into this over the last five months.
