Gael Garcia Bernal Is Earthbound With Kate Hudson

Kate Hudson's career was off to an amazing start with her award-worthy performance in Almost Famous so many years ago, but somewhere along the way she veered into the romantic comedy world and got stuck there. She's been fighting her way out of her pigeonhole with roles in Nine and The Killer Inside Me, and her next romance sounds more serious and less slapstick. She'll star in Earthbound, playing a woman who falls in love with her doctor as she battles a terminal illness.

The subject matter is obviously sad and it still seems like it has the possibility for soapiness, but here's some good news: Gael Garcia Bernal is in talks to join the project. I know that most Bernal fans are collectively groaning at this news, but perhaps a costar like Bernal is exactly what Kate needs to reestablish herself as a serious actress. Maybe it's just me, but I'm hoping to see Hudson shine in her next films and beyond now that she's finally put a little distance between herself and Matthew McConaughey.

I can't really see her being serious now, after the rom-coms.

I love Kate Hudson and I think that her mom is awesome. Either way I think that Kate is an awesome actress.
