Movie News of the Weird

This week, there have been several movie news items that have left me either scratching my head or chuckling to myself. Thus, I've collected some of these headlines for a kind of mini-news roundup... of the weird.

  • Jessica Biel and Forest Whitaker will take to the screen. Together. The film, titled Powder Blue, "finds four eclectic characters — a mortician, an ex-con, a suicidal ex-priest and a stripper — brought together on Christmas Eve by a mixture of circumstances." I'm going to venture a guess that Whitaker is not the stripper.
  • Elijah Wood to play Iggy Pop? Bizarre.
  • More items if you

  • At first I was intrigued by the news that David Mamet has written another screenplay. Then I found out it is called Redbelt and is a Jiu-jitsu film (scratching head begins...), and it stars Chiwetel Ejiofor (who I love). And now there's someone joining Ejiofor: Tim Allen. Tim. Allen. In a Jiu-jitsu movie by the man who brought us Glengarry Glen Ross and Wag the Dog, among others. Could be awesome? Maybe?
  • It sounds like Felicity Huffman is going for a kind of Georgia Rule: The Prequel with Phoebe in Wonderland, which stars Elle Fanning as "a rebellious little girl who clashes with the rule-obsessed authority figures in her life." I'll definitely be seeing it, however, since another great actress, Patricia Clarkson, will play the little girl's "unconventional drama teacher." Phoebe rule!
  • More just cool than weird, Peter Jackson and Steven Spielberg are collaborating on the three back-to-back features based on the beloved Belgian comic series, The Adventures of Tintin. That is going to be one unbelievable project, I can taste it.

Is Jessica Biel really the stripper? I hope not. She should really leave all the stripper roles to her friend Ms Lohan.

Oh wow! Tintin the film, you can not believe how excited I am to hear that. I L.O.V.E Tintin! Ohh, Jessica Biel is an actress. I seriously had no idea, is she good? The film sounds like it could be worth a look. Elijah as Iggy could be completely fun and hilarious.

Does the first one sound like that country song to anyone? You know the one about the pregnant prostitute and the priest in a bus accident and the prostitute lives?
