The mix of Sam Mendes and Kevin Spacey in American Beauty was wonderful. Fueled by the script from future Six Feet Under/True Blood creator Alan Ball, Spacey's Lester Burnham mixed perfect amounts of dysfunction, discontent, rebirth, and futility into one man struggling to take hold of his life. The film commanded the Oscars, winning almost all of the lead nominations it was given (Leading Actor, Cinematography, Director, Writing, and Picture), losing only three (Best Actress, Editing, and Music).

Now there's some killer news: The pair are reuniting for a new project -- Shakespeare, no less! But there's bad news to go right along with it. They're reuniting for the stage, not the screen.
