Right-Wing Nonprofit Lavishes Millions on Top Brass
The American Conservative Union touts itself as “the nation’s original conservative organization” and loves to rail against “reckless spending”—but it’s hardly cautious about turning over supporters’ cash to its own top executives. The ACU, best known as the group behind the annual Conservative Political Action Conference, or CPAC, has enriched companies belonging to two of its directors to the tune of $4 million in the past five years, according to a review by The Daily Beast of their yearly tax forms and other required filings.
Derek Cianfrance will direct Ryan Gosling in 'Wolfman'.
The 47-year-old filmmaker is set to link up with Gosling once more after they previously collaborated on 'Blue Valentine' and 'The Place Beyond the Pines'.
Derek has replaced Leigh Whannell behind the camera on the Universal horror project after the latter parted ways with the project due to scheduling conflicts earlier this year.
Cianfrance is also set to pen the script for the project with Ryan, Ken Kao and Jason Blum producing.
It is not yet known what the new take on 'Wolfman' will look like, but it is believed to be a modern take a not a period piece like the 2010 movie that starred Benicio del Toro and Sir Anthony Hopkins.

Derek said in a statement: "Horror movies were my first love – my entry into what cinema was capable of narratively, psychologically and aesthetically.
"Coupled with the opportunity to collaborate with Ryan again, this is truly a dream come true. I'm thrilled and inspired to work with the good folks at Blumhouse and Universal to bring this monster back to life in our collective unconscious."
