GOOD MORNING: A third generation Huston moves into the limelight as 16-year-old Anjelica co-stars with (tentatively) David Hemmings in “A Walk With Love And Death,” directed by papa John Huston, produced by Carter De Haven and scripted by Dale Wasserman who owned the screen rights to the 14th century yarn. Wasserman says he met a lotta resistance getting the pic pacted–but that’s nothing new to him — “Man of La Mancha” battled 20th century windmills before legit launching. … (2007 update: I spoke with Anjelica Huston as she readied for tonight’s premiere of “The Darjeeling Limited,” opening the N.Y. Film Festival. In “Darjeeling,” she plays the mother of Owen Wilson, Adrien Brody and Jason Schwartzman. Anjelica laughingly recalls working on the remote location in India, but admitting it wasn’t so funny while there. “Three days felt like three weeks.” She’ll have limited time for “Limited” p.a’s as she returns to work in CBS’ “Medium” in which she has signed for six segs. Recalling her film bow in “A Walk With Love And Death,” –John H. played her father as well as directed — she says, “It just didn’t work out. I gave dad a lot of problems about it. And I don’t think, I added much to it. It just whetted my appetite to go on. ” … Anjelica recently wound an age-spanning role as Sam Rockwell’s mother in “Choke.” directed by Clark Greg. Anjelica is preparing a project, “Give Us A Kiss,” for which she’d like Leonardo DiCaprio. “But his agent seems to be too busy” she laughed. Anjelica and husband, sculptor Robert Graham, are preparing to move into a new studio in Venice.)
