With his purchase of the Landmark Theatres and Magnolia Pictures and his creation of production company 2929 and the high definition cable network HDNet, which boasts an NYC-based production arm run by Open City Films’ Jason Kliot, Dallas Maverick-owner Mark Cuban has quickly announced himself as one of indie film’s key players.

For those who want to know more about Cuban, check out his weblog, which boasts regular postings about the Mavericks, Godsend, the Robert DeNiro/Rebecca Romijn-Stamos movie Cuban produced with Todd Wagner, and, the search engine he just picked up stock in.

Regular reading might help you figure out how to get on Cuban’s good side so he’ll finance your film… or perhaps bequeath you the $1 million he’s promising to give away to a complete stranger as part of his upcoming ABC reality TV show The Benefactor.
