I always thought Carla Gugino looked familiar, but I couldn't quite place it until Scott Weinberg mentionedTroop Beverly Hills in his post about the actress becoming burlesque superheroine Sally Jupiter in the upcoming Watchmen flick. She's come a long way since her first movie role! After really making a name for herself with Spy Kids, she made men across the planet drool for her Lucille in Sin City. Now, according to The Hollywood Reporter, Gugino is taking on another law role in the upcoming Righteous Killmovie that's headed by Al Pacino and Robert De Niro -- the flick about two cops trying to catch a serial killer.

50 Cent has already been cast as a drug dealer who helps the duo, and Donnie Wahlberg has signed on for an unspecified role. Gugino will play the female lead -- "a crime-scene investigator with a dark personal life who enters into a relationship with De Niro's character." Lucky man! The film comes from the pen of Inside Man scribe Russell Gewirtz, which should mean good things for the script, and will be directed by Fried Green Tomatoes helmer Jon Avnet. Topping all of that off, IMDb lists that Martin Scorsese has a role as "Lieutenant Winnfield." It's looking to be an interesting production, and at the very least, it'll be nice to see Pacino and De Niro together, and to see the latter all tough again. And, of course, more tough Gugino.
