"A Look Back” is a series of posts we here at Caughtonset.com feature weekly. It’s as simple as the title makes it sound. Each Friday we will take “A Look Back” to the set of a newly released film. Look at pictures from the set today, then watch the movie tonight.
Today we are taking a look back at another limited release flick. Arbitage stars Richard Gere, Susan Surandon and Tim Roth. The story sounds pretty interesting too. From IMDB.com:
"A troubled hedge fund magnate desperate to complete the sale of his trading empire makes an error that forces him to turn to an unlikely person for help."

Sounds pretty interesting, too bad it's only being released in 197 theaters nationwide. I'm in luck I have a choice of a whopping 3 theaters in my area playing it this weekend. If you aren't so lucky maybe it will get a wider release in a couple of weeks and you can check it out then. If not there are a number of other movies coming out in much wider releases, Resident Evil: Retribution, Last Ounce of Courage and Finding Nemo IN 3D!

Richard Gere is spotted filming his new finance thriller Arbitrage at Le Caprice restaurant in Manhattan last week (April 14). Gere was also seen filming the movie in Central Park on Wednesday. You can check out those pictures here.
One actress you can bet won't be appearing in Gere's new flick is Claire Sweeney. Sweeney - who appeared in the stage version of Chicago in 2001 - met with the actor to discuss their performances (Gere appeared in the film version of the musical in 2002). She told UK tabloid Metro Gere was less than polite:
"I interviewed him for a TV show when I was in Chicago and the film of Chicago he was in had just come out. He tried to put me down and was just really rude. At the end, I asked about his courtroom scene, which was his big scene, and said: 'So in the courtroom scene, were you advised to sound like Dick Van Dyke or was that a character choice?' He just looked at his publicist and said: 'This interview is terminated.' I thought: 'Stick it up your arse.'"

Richard Gere is seen on the set of his new film Arbitrage in New York's Central Park on Wednesday (April 13). Al Pacino was originally attached to the film, but was replaced by Gere.
Directed by Nicholas Jarecki, the film follows a troubled hedge fund manager "who is desperate to sell his trading empire and pull the eject cord from the business with his huge earnings intact. Trouble is, his gains have been mostly ill gotten and he’s really looking to ditch the place before anyone discovers the massive fraud he’s been perpetrating. And then he makes a careless – and violent – mistake that has even bigger ramifications."
Tim Roth and Susan Sarandon also star.
