[6.20 - French Time] HBO has passed on the comedy pilot Tilda, starring Diane Keaton.

In spite of a high-profile cast and a ton of industry buzz, HBO has decided not to move forward with that hot pilot which starred Diane Keaton as a powerful and reclusive Hollywood journalist - obviously based on She Who Must Be Read aka's Nikki Finke. Ellen Page and Jason Patric co-starred.

A conflict between writers Cynthia Mort (Tell me you love me) and Oscar-winning writer/director Bill Condon (Gods and Monsters, Dreamgirls) and other production difficulties led to HBO's decision.

Too bad that the opportunity to deliver the Murphy Brown of this century went wrong. And it is a personal disappointment for your humble servant, who was looking forward to watch what HBO could have done with a TV series based on Nikki.
