Jennifer Garner, Anna Faris to Attend "The Bachelorette Party" 

Jennifer Garner and Anna Faris are set to party it up "The Hangover" style in "The Bachelorette Party!"

Based on a novel by Karen McCullah Lutz, the premise is described by Booklist as:

Zadie Roberts was literally left standing at the altar by her now famous soap-star fiance. Even though it was more than six months ago, the last thing she wanted was to be associated with anything bridal. So, when her best friend, Grey, announces that he is engaged to Zadie's conservative and beautiful cousin, Helen, Zadie's life hits a new low--he wants Zadie to get Helen to loosen up a little at the bachelorette party. Not even sure if the prim and proper Helen knows how to have fun, Zadie reluctantly promises to show her a good time. But when the posh, sedate party goes off track and Helen throws her good-girl image out the window for a night of drinking, debauchery, and maybe even one last fling, Zadie is sure this wasn't what Grey had in mind and is torn as to what to tell him about Helen's behavior. Don't look for more than an easy read, mindless fun, and proof that women can be just as raunchy as men.

It's unclear which characters Garner and Faris will play, but I'm guessing Zadie will be Faris and the conservative Helen will be Garner.

Our friends at Pajiba told us that the script is written by the author, who was also responsible for writing the screenplay for "The House Bunny" and "The Ugly Truth."

Nicole Kidman was once attached to star, but she's a serious actress now, so pleazzze :happy

Did You Know That Matt Damon and Jake Gyllenhaal Were Approached for "Avatar?"  

I didn't know this until today that "Avatar" director James Cameron contacted both Matt Damon and Jake Gyllenhaal about starring as Jake Sully in the biggest film in the universe!

Both actors turned the director down so he went with his first choice, then-unknown Sam Worthington, who, The Los Angeles Times told us, "was living in his car before he got the job." Wow! Really?

And apparently, Cameron offered the role to the bigger name stars to pacify studio bosses at Fox, but he really, really wanted Worthington. Good choice!

In true Cameron fashion, the filmmaker, talking about courting Damon and Gyllenhaal, said, “Honestly, did I go out and try to woo them? No. I had my heart set on Sam. Maybe they sensed my lack of 100% commitment from me. Maybe it was the subject matter. This was a big 'Star Wars'-type movie. They’re both serious actors.”

Good for Worthington, he had Cameron supporting him! To read the complete article, click here.

Jonah Hill Ready to Babysit! 

Jonah Hill is set to star for "Pineapple Express" director David Gordon Green in "The Sitter."

The Hollywood Reporter told us that this comedy has shades of 1987's "Adventures in Babysitting." The plot revolves around "a college student, suspended for the semester and living at home with his single mom, who has a night to remember when he gets talked into baby-sitting the eccentric kids next door: two boys and a wild 8-year-old girl."

Once upon a time, "The Sitter" attracted the likes of Zac Efron and Zach Galifianakis, so where's Elizabeth Shue when you need her? :happy

"Showgirls" Sequel, Yeah, Really! 

Did you know that there's a "Showgirls" sequel in the works? No? Neither did I, so to my surprise, our friends at Movieline told us that a certain Marc Volander "had secured $25 million in financing and was hard at work on a follow-up that would revolve around the character of Hope, played in the original by noted German model/actress/vatever, Rena Riffel."

Based on the trailer, this is a salacious production, dirtier than Paul Verhoeven's original. But suddenly, I'm missing Elizabeth Berkley who strutted her way to infamy starring in the first film.

The sequel is eurotrash at its finest! For more pictures, click here, and to see the dirty, dirty trailer that will satisfy your lesbian softcore fantasies, click here.

"The Ghost Writer" Movie Review -- Yes, the Roman Polanski Movie! 

Roman Polanski has been called many names. In just the last few months since his arrest, the Academy Award-winning director has been labeled “escaped convict,” “rapist,” and “child molester.” But let me remind you Polanski is also one of the greatest directors working today. The proof is displayed in his new tragicomic political intrigue film “The Ghost Writer.”

Ewan McGregor stars as a gifted author hired to ghostwrite the memoirs of a controversial former British Prime Minister, Adam Lang (Pierce Brosnan). Billed simply as The Ghost, McGregor is perfect for this Hitchcockian role of a man who knows too much. Read More...
