Movie News: Allison Janney, Paris Hilton and Pee-Wee?

Weeeeird. . . There's no title yet, and plot details are limited, but this movie news caught my eye today because it's a bizarre collection of people. Apparently, there's an indie movie in the works that:

  1. . . . will be directed by Todd Solondz (Welcome to the Dollhouse, Happiness).
  2. . . . will star Allison Janney, Charlotte Rampling, Paris Hilton and Paul Reubens (known to many as Pee-Wee Herman).
  3. . . . is described as "a dramatic comedy about family against the backdrop of a war. The movie will take off on elements from the director's breakout Happiness, in a project producers are describing as a 'part-sequel, part-variation' on that film."

Any Todd Solondz fans out there? Think this could be kind of awesome in a twisted sort of way? Should Paris be in movies?

Again: Weeeeird.

Well it's certainly going to be quirky (Paul Reubens is just so awesomely weird, and I loved Allison Janney in Juno). Paris Hilton I'm not so crazy about (to put it mildly) but maybe she'll surprise us. Or have a really small role.

well i don't know about anyone else but i'm not necessarily rooting for paris in this one. she should know better by now that she's not really a successful movie actress but i guess there are a lot of folks out there that want her in their projects.

What a strangely interesting mix. Love the fact that Charlotte Rampling is in the mix. What a great actress she is!

Um, wait a second? You mean, this isn't a joke? Someone's actually going to try to make a semi-serious movie that stars Paris Hilton and Pee-Wee?! I'm having a total WTF moment.

I'm more interested in the fact that Charlotte Rampling is in the cast.

Welcome to the Dollhouse is one of my favorite movies of all time. I was entirely uncomfortable throughout the entirety of Happiness...and I love it. I have a soft spot for Paul Reubens but I don't know if even Todd Solondz can make me tolerate Paris.
