SAM WORTHINGTON IN "THE RIDERS"! ZAC EFRON IN "ARE WE OFFICIALLY DATING?"! JASON SUDEIKIS & JENNIFER ANISTON IN "WE'RE THE MILLERS" COMEDY

According to "Variety" young Zac Efron, who is getting more and more popular, has joined the cast of romantic comedy ARE WE OFFICIALLY DATING. The story of the movie revolves around three Manhattan friends who make a pact to remain single. The plot thickens when each friend falls in love shortly after the vow is made. It is interesting that the plot of the film was on the famous Black list a few years ago, the list of best unproduced scripts in Hollywood. As I reported earlier, Zac will also join Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis and Goldie Hawn in THIS IS WHERE I LEAVE YOU about a Jewish family that isn't used to observing their faith's traditions but is forced to ful-
fill their father's final wish and sit Shivah together for an entire week and confront their problems. Zack's last film THE LUCKY ONE earned triple its budget at the boxoffice earlier this spring.

WE'RE THE MILLERS

Speaking of comedian Jason Sudeikis, he has just started shooting a new comedy titled WE'RE THE MILLERS. He plays David Burke, a small-time pot dealer whose clientele includes chefs and soccer moms, but no kids-after all, he has his scruples. So what could go wrong? Plenty. Preferring to keep a low profile for obvious reasons, he learns the hard way that no good deed goes unpunished when he tries to help out some local teens and winds up getting jumped by a trio of gutter punks. Stealing his stash and his cash, they leave him in major debt to his supplier, Brad (Ed Helms). In order to wipe the slate clean David must now become a big-time drug smuggler by bringing Brad's latest shipment in from Mexico. Twisting the arms of his neighbors, cynical stripper Rose (Jennifer Aniston) and wannabe customer 
Kenny (Will Poulter), and the tatted-and-pierced streetwise teen Casey (Emma Roberts), he devises a foolproof plan. One fake wife, two pretend kids and a huge, shiny RV later, the "Millers" are headed south of the border for a Fourth of July weekend that is sure to end with a bang.

THE RIDERS THRILLER
Meanwhile, Australian star Sam Worthington, who played a mythical hero earlier this year in Greek epic WRATH OF THE TITANS,
 has signed on to star in THE RIDERS. According to "Digital Spy" he will lead the cast which also includes GAME OF THRONE's Charles Dance and Timothy Spall. This dynamic and suspenseful thriller is based on the novel by Tim Winton, and the story revolves around Scully (Sam Worthington), a man who moves from Australia to Ireland and keenly awaits the arrival of his wife Jennifer and six-year-old daughter Billie. When a traumatised Billie arrives at the airport alone, the pair must retrace her steps to discover Jennifer's fate.

  1. Nice pics today, Dezzy. And that last project with Sam Worthington (why is he wearing a shirt?) has the most appeal to me. Reminds me a little of Jodi Foster's Flightplan movie.

    1. Sadly, but Sam is one of those guys who don't do shirtless pics :( I was never able to catch him naked :)
      Hope you've noticed the new promo banner for my Tuesday post, darling :)

    2. I did see that, and noticed that it is actually UPCOMING. :PP

      I tried to read that novel, but couldn't get through it. It was written in a back and forth POV that didn't appeal to me, but I might enjoy seeing it as a BBC series.

    3. yep, I can imagine the chaos with so many female characters :) The only thing that frightens me about the series is casting Max Irons in the lead role. he was so utterly and dreadfully horrid and stiff in RED RIDING HOOD. I thought he had constipation throughout that wretched little movie.

  2. Oh, oh, Jennifer Aniston is going to do that big tease YET AGAIN about showing her tits in a movie.

    3. LOL, but she is such a sweetheart in her private life, unlike that horrid Angelina Jolie woman....

    4. Jolie should be burned at the stake.

  3. I'm not usually one for watching comedies, but I may try out The Miillers. Its the drug dealing aspects that tempt me. Hopefully, this won't be another version Nathional Lampoon's Vacation types, or Little Miss Sunshine (though I liked Sunshine better than the Vacation ones.)

    I'm sure I'll enjoy The Riders though. Action and hunks, what's not to like :)

    Yes, I'll try to remember to be back Thursday. I've been a lax blogger lately.

  4. Hey, now, I resemble that slut remark. LOL

    The Millers sounds funny, but I'm not sure about these others. Especially that rom com with Zac. "Let's make pact to remain single and oops we ALL fall in love immediately after..." Harlequin's been selling that crap for decades. ;)

    1. I wonder why'd anyone make a pact to remain single? Especially when you're a looker like Zacster.

    2. Exactly! There goes the believability factor right there. LOL

    3. I wonder who will be the other guys. If they put Timberlake and Hunksworth Junior, it will be utterly unrealistic :)

  5. I love Zac dear, thanks for featuring him.

    By the way, your banners are always catchy and attention grabbing ~

    Wishing you happy day ~

  6. Zac's upcoming projects sound awesome. I especially love the one with the Jewish family. As for Sam...he picks films that are more on the "epic" side of things, with characters that are faced with immense emotional or physical turmoil. Good for him.

    Good job as always, Deez!

    1. I'd blame money for his chests, if we were so rich we'd have enough to pay best personal trainers too :)

  8. Efron is looking hot today! This Is Where I Leave you is the one I'd like to see-a good plot and not a rehash of things already done over and over.

    The Miller's-no way, not with Aniston in it. Really I've had enough and don't fancy vomiting in a cinema.

    The Worthington film-yes-at least to see home if nothing else.

    My pepper stew is bubbling away and smells heavenly. I added a bit of bourbon and brown sugar to the sauce and kicked it up a notch.

      You want to make the hubs drunk tonight? :)

    2. Give me a magnifying glass and an hour alone with him and I'll let you know.

      Nah, the alcohol burns off in the cooking dear.

  9. I live in Wilmington, NC where We're The Millers is being filmed. It is ALL the rage with Jason and Jennifer in our little neck of the woods, eating at our local restaurants and being spotted on the beach.

    1. we do love everything OZ related :) There's something in the air Down Under which makes Ozzies and Kiwis drop dead gorgeous.

  14. Can't say I'm a fan of Sudekis nor Aniston. That premise of 'ARE WE OFFICIALLY DATING' seems so unoriginal, but then again so is most rom-coms these days.

    1. I've never seen Sudeikis in anything, but he seems adorable. I'm impartial towards Aniston.
