Look at All The Women!

In the second piece of recent movie news that features the year 1939, screenwriter Diane English is finally close to securing a large cast of ladies for a remake of the 1939 classic The Women after working for many years to get the project going. Variety has the scoop:

Meg Ryan, Annette Bening, Eva Mendes, Jada Pinkett Smith, Debra Messing and Candice Bergen have either signed or are near committing to star in a contemporized version of the George Cukor-directed film, which Picturehouse will distribute domestically next year.

The bitchy tone of the Clare Boothe Luce play lent itself perfectly to a 1939 original film that starred Norma Shearer, Joan Crawford, Rosalind Russell and others.

[Diane English's] script maintains the arch spirit of the original, and the all-female cast, but the gals aren't as relentlessly catty this time around. Story follows a group of female friends when the one they envied most discovers her husband's cheating on her.

I am so looking forward to seeing all these fabulous women in one film, though the article also mentions that the movie's budget is $20 million, so I'm curious how that will be spread out among such a great-looking cast. Another peculiar tidbit: Mick Jagger is producing. Some bizarre details going on here, but I have faith this quirky project will turn out to be awesome.

Wow $20 million budget. I hope there will be no cat fights on who should get the most money because they should just forget about doing the movie about women because they would give females around the world a bad name if they start fighting.

They better not fuck this up. I love this play. I'm not sure if I trust Eva Mendes, whom I like, or Meg Ryan, whom I can't see beyond romantic comedies--from the late '80's/early '90's. I'd love to see: Helen Mirren, Kate Winslet, Charlize Theron, and Julianne Moore.
