Odds and ends from Tuesday:
- While I'm not crazy about the title or storyline, I felt compelled to report that Radha Mitchell (Silent Hill) has signed on to play a manipulative real estate agent (seriously, find me a real estate agent that's not manipulative) in the film Feast of Love. Starring opposite Morgan Freeman and Greg Kinnear, story will revolve around a bunch of friends from Oregon who, I imagine, feast on love ... and everything that goes along with it. Mitchell's character will have an affair with whoever Greg Kinnear plays. And we all know that, any story about love, must come along with an affair or two ... or three. Heck, it's Oregon -- what else is there to do?
- Hey, remember the movie Space Cowboys in which a bunch of old timers travel into space to rescue some satellite? Well, take that idea and apply it to a bunch of retired Vietnam vets who are called back into action upon finding out their former leader goes missing. Regency Enterprises has picked up the spec scriptWardogs with, what I assume, intentions to convince some older action stars to sign on. In fact, that's exactly the idea scribe Adam Grossman had when he wrote it -- to combine some of our favorite heroes from the 80's and 90's into one film. Problem is, I could only think of two guys (Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger) worthy of roles and, without at least one of them, why even try?
- I knew it -- he is human after all. While practicing for his upcoming role as a quarterback in Disney's football-themed flick The Game Plan, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson suffered a ruptured Achilles tendon injury, forcing Disney to make an emergency phone call to God and cash in on that favor. Production on the film has officially gone into hiatus mode, with the actor scheduled for surgery this Friday in Miami. Seeing as The Rock already had one football film on his plate, it now appears this second one might have been a bad idea. Strike that -- anything the guy stars in is a bad idea.
