While I think most people think of drama when they think of Sally Field, I always thought that she could of done some really great comedies. I just don't think she ever managed to choose the right ones. It might not have been a perfect movie, but she was absolutely hilarious in Soapdish as a highly-strung soap star. Sure, I liked Norma Rae, but most of Fields' "heavy" roles always grated on my nerves just a little -- a good example would be her work on ER, it's just too much crying, too much yelling, just too much of everything. It looks like I will have to wait for that great Sally Field comedy project, because her next film sounds pretty light on the laughs.

Variety reported that MGM purchased the international rights to the film Two Weeks starring Field, Ben Chaplin (The Thin Red Line), and Tom Cavanagh (Scrubs). Rounding out the rest of the cast is Julianne Nicholson, Glenn Howerton, and Clea DuVall. The film follows four siblings who rush home to see their terminally ill mother for the last time, but end up having to wait around for the inevitable for the next two weeks. Steve Stockman who is at the helm as a first time director also wrote the script. Two Weeks is set for release this December..
