Cher's Next Film Will Be... 

No, it's not going to be the third "Batman" flick but a comedy co-starring Johnny Knoxville.

This time, the diva is going to embrace her inner Cougar!

The film is titled "The Drop-Out" and tells the story of a 35-year old college student (played by "Jackass'" Knoxville who's been kicked out of his parents house. Now, he must get into the good graces of the 62-year old woman (I'm thinking Cher?) living next door.

Cher has always been good in comedy, and yes, she even won a Best Actress Oscar for "Moonstruck."

She hasn't made a movie since 2003's "Stuck On You," so this is a welcome treat for her fans.

My only concern? It's written and will be directed by Ricky Blitt who gave us the underwhelming comedy, "The Ringer."

So hopefully, this is a better-written script, and yes, better-directed!

"A Fish Called Wanda: The Musical" to Debut in San Diego? 

As we reported in June of last year, John Cleese was busy spearheading the musical version of "A Fish Called Wanda."

Now, according to Collider:

*** Cleese confirmed his participation on the musical project
*** It may be finished in the next two or three years
*** The musical will debut in San Diego moving to Broadway and London's West End
*** Producers of the "Pink Panther" franchise have approached Cleese about a possible spin-off for his character, Chief Inspector Dreyfuss.

And no, no word yet on whether Jamie Lee Curtis, Michael Palin, or Kevin Kline will reprise their roles, this time with a couple of song and dance numbers! :wink
