FIRST PICTURE FROM SF FILM "UPSIDE DOWN" WITH KIRSTEN DUNST & JIM STURGESS. SIMON "THE MENTALIST" BAKER GETS A NEW $30 MILLION DEAL WITH WARNER BROS. TV!

According to "MovieWeb" Lydia Hearst (model, heir to the Hearst publishing fortune and daughter of Patty Hearst) will join Joan Collins in DOGS IN POCKETBOOKS, a spoof on celebrity obsession,
about a bratty movie goddess in and out of rehab, in trouble with the law, and hounded by greedy agents, predatory paparazzi, off-the-wall stalkers and crazed media, a role obviously based on Lindsay Lohan.

Here's the first photo from the film I'm really excited about - you've read about UPSIDE DOWN many times before at HOLLYWOOD SPY. This romantic sf film follows Adam (Jim Sturgess), a seemingly ordinary guy in a very extraordinary universe. He lives
humbly trying to make ends meet, but his romantic spirit holds on to the memory of a girl he met once upon a time from another world, an inverted affluent world with its own gravity, directly above but beyond reach... a girl named Eve (Kirsten Dunst). Their childhood flirtation becomes an impossible love. But when he catches a glimpse of grown up Eve on television, nothing will get in the way of getting her back... Not even the law or science! Look up towards the sky and rub your eyes because you
won't believe what you see: cities, forests, and oceans with their own inverted gravity, only an arm's length away, yet completely unreachable. Take a leap over
to this alternate reality, two worlds - one above, one below facing each other, and you'll land in the extraordinary world of UPSIDE DOWN.

This sounds quite crazy: according to "Deadline" Simon Baker,  the star of THE MENTALIST, the show about  a well-known psychic who helps FBI to solve crimes, has signed a new contract with Warner Bros. TV which will  bring him a shocking amount of more than $30 million, adding another year to his current six-year commitment to the show. He will also be credited as the producer from Season 5 and will also receive more money from the back end revenue.

  1. I will probably skip Dogs in Pocketbooks, although it sounds like this movie is something a lot of celebrities need to watch.

    Upside Down sounds good, even though I dislike Dunst.

    Wow, I got all excited when you mentioned Simon Baker, then I realized after glancing at the photo, you were not referring to the Simon Baker I like. Lol, there are two Simon Bakers in the acting world and the guy I like has not filmed in awhile and I was hoping this was him.

  4. So funny, when I was reading the description of Dogs in Pocketbooks I was wondering why Lindsay wasn't in it. :)

  6. FYI, that is NOT a picture of JIM STURGESS with Kirsten. Don't know who the guy is, but it's not Jim. :(

  7. Upside Down looks fascinating.

    Simon Baker is a very smart businessman! I 1st noticed him in The Devil Wears Prada & admired his success as a writer.

    They should get Lindsay Lohan to actually do a cameo.

  16. No, he is young, maybe 21, something like that, not sure. He is Native American. He played the Apache Cate Blanchett stitched up in the Missing and played Loved by the Buffalo from Into the West and several other lesser known films that you probably have not seen. These were probably just released in America, not sure.
