The Player 1992

From Amazon: A wicked satirical fable about corporate backstabbing--and actual murder--in the movie business, The Player benefits from director Robert Altman's long and bitter experience working within, and without, the Hollywood studio system. Rising young executive Griffin Mill (Tim Robbins) is tormented by threats from an anonymous writer. The pressure and paranoia build until Griffin loses control one night and semi-accidentally kills screenwriter David Kahane (Vincent D'Onofrio), who may or may not be the source of the threats.

Wow! Are you a Tim Robbins fan? He was the lead. Do you like Greta Scacchi? She was there, too. How about Fred Ward? Count him in. I really like Vincent D'Onofrio. Sorry about that, Vince. Wacky for Whoopi? No problem, she was a hoot. Hey, there's Lyle Lovett. Where's Julia Roberts? Oh, she's there too. Bruce Willis was...
