REESE WITHERSPOON IN "MEN ARE FROM MARS, WOMEN ARE FROM VENUS" FILM! DC COMICS' "THE METAL MEN" MOVIE! TRAILER FOR RASHIDA JONES' & ANDY SAMBERG'S "CELESTE AND JESSE FOREVER"

 Ah, it seems that after choosing a number of very serious roles (some even about serial murders and tragic accidents), Reese Witherspoon has found a project in her trademark genre - a romantic comedy. Following the success of their self-help book movie adaptation in WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU'RE EXPECTING, Lionsgate is now
 preparing a film version of MEN ARE FROM MARS, WOMEN ARE FROM VENUS. Reese will take one of the roles in the story that loosely follows the guide to relationships from John Gray's self-help book about the differences between genders. To be based on one of the best-selling non-fiction hardcover books of all times the film should start shooting next January.
HOLLYWOOD SPY HEADLINES
According to "MovieWeb", Barry Sonnenfeld from MEN IN BLACK is attached to direct DC Comic's movie adaptation of THE METAL
MEN. The story of the project which is still in very early stages of preproduction, centers on William Magnus, an artificial intelligence expert who creates six different cyborgs, each made of a different metal on the periodic table. Gold is the leader and can stretch his form in an infinite number of ways. Iron is the muscle of the group, and Lead protects the group from radiation. Mercury can melt and slide into the tiniest of spaces, Platinum, the only female, could stretch or flatten her form, and Tin is the insecure cyborg. 

 CELESTE AND JESSE FOREVER
 And your trailer for today is the first clip for romantic dramedy CELESTE AND JESSE FOREVER which should hit theatres later this year starring Rashida Jones (PARKS AND RECREATION), Andy Samberg, Emma Roberts, Elijah Wood... The romantic film, written by Rashida Jones herself, revolves around a young couple in the midst of a divorce who attempt to maintain their friendship while pursuing new relationships and they try to separate in the most amicable way possible.

  1. There's just something about Reese Witherspoon that I really like. I don't know if she's sweet in real life but I find her personality appealing on screen.

    I'll be back to watch the preview. The family is watching the end of a Clint Eastwood flick....

    1. methinks, she's sweet in real life too :) I think most Americans like her because she is very ordinary and thus non intimidating :)

    2. I think you're right about Reese, she just seems so down earth.

      So, if the trailer made me tear up, what will the entire film make me do? I'm hooked already, Dezzy.

    3. it's one of those small films that make you feel nice when you see them since they are usually optimistic.

  3. John Gray - yeah, that was my first thought, that's a church read book, how can they take a movie from that book? Maybe documentary - but movie impossible. Guidelines from that book?

    "Hollywood nitwits, you cant live with their crap, you cant live without their crap"

    It is not a self-help book, please, self-help books are pathetic.

    Andy Samberg one seems to be cool.

      I've never read a selfhelp book myself...

  9. What is it these days with lame movies made from even lamer self help books? I hope Reese does more Legally Blonde type comedies. I won't be watching her this one. Honestly, the book is a hundred years old and no longer relevant.

    Rashida is pretty talented and the movie looks good.

    Metal Men sounds interesting, but if DC is going to go after Marvel, they need to start making films with the heroes people outside the incestuous realm of comics have actually heard of. Like Wonder Woman, ;)

    1. maybe we should write a selfhelp book, I feel money is hiding there :)
      Not sure if Wonder Woman will ever happen, and if it does I have a feeling they will cast some awful wimpy actress :(

    1. yep, he seems a bit weird for a lead role...

  11. Oh, I really like Rashida Jones. I can't wait to see that one.

  12. Another romantic comedy ahhhhhhhhhhhhh :o ... wait this one has Andy Samberg in it? Well it might not be too bad then :). I've never heard of the Metal Men are they just trying to milk this super hero thing for all its worth at this point?

    1. ah, how did you become so unromantic, Matt :) You will have to finish my school of romance to set thing right :)
      Yep, superhero films are dairy films meaning they are made to milk money...

      Delete
    2. Our friend Matt is a fan of rain (to make me melt), so you'd expect him to be more romantic.

    3. it's true, I'd expect it too!

  13. The Metal Men seems like an odd choice for a movie, and DC doesn't have a great track record for movies not Batman recently.

  15. I haven't seen good rom-com lately, maybe hers would be a good one ;)
    It's nice watching rom-com once in a while.

    Ah...I am not a fan of comic superhero...will just wait for that one in TV

  16. I liked her a lot in Election, Dezzy. Elsie's right: there's something about her. It's not her voice, though.
