Odds and ends from Monday:
- Wouldn't you like to enter a sex club to find Michelle Williams waiting patiently inside? According to the New York Daily News, the actress is set to star alongside Ewan McGregor and Hugh Jackman in The Tourist, to be directed by Michael Langenegger. Pic, which starts shooting in NYC next month, revolves around an accountant (McGregor) whose lawyer (Jackman) introduces him to a secret sex club where he meets the woman of his dreams. Things look great, until she goes missing and he's implicated in a $20 million theft. Man, talk about getting screwed ... in more ways than one.
- Kelly Preston and Stuart Lafferty have signed on to play Kevin Bacon's wife and son in Death Sentence. And, as much as we wish the full title was actually Footloose 2: Death Sentence, it ain't gonna happen. In the pic, Bacon plays a man who makes it his mission to hunt down the gang who brutally attacked his family ... by dancing on them. Ha, I wish.
- Director Andrzej Bartkowiak has managed to escape the Doom surrounding his last film, and is currently in negotiations to direct the thriller Black and Blue, written by Jimmy Cummings. Pic revolves around a Boston cop who finds himself stuck in the middle of a drug war between the Irish mob and a group of young thugs. However, things become even more complicated when he discovers that some of his own family members might be involved. Dammit Grandma, I told you to stop selling all that smack!
