I don't know about you, but I was sure hoping that Hollywood would give us more movies about women and their love of shoes. The Hollywood Reporter posts that Beth Harbison's Shoe Addicts Anonymous is heading to the big screen. The plot is exactly as you'd imagine it -- four women who meet up and chat about shoes. Tapping into the Sex and the City sort of scenario, there's the trophy wife of a senator, a phone sex operator, a nanny, and the lead, a woman in massive consumer debt. Actress and writer Laurie Taylor-Williams has been tapped to adapt the novel.

And while these women join over love of shoes, a couple might be heading for the dumping bin for a classically stupid reason. The Hollywood Reporteralso posts that we've got a new wedding-centric comedy on the way called The Big Question. Written by TV writer Andrew Lenchewski to be directed by 30 Rock's Michael Engler, the film focuses on a couple's mind games as he plans to propose on New Year's Eve and his girlfriend plans an unspoken deadline of Christmas Eve.

Finally, we've got a female-centric film that is blissfully lacking the overused stereotypes. Variety reports that Paramount has grabbed the screen rights to Dave Roman's graphic novel Agnes Quill: An Anthology of Mystery for Thor Freudenthal to direct and Evan Spiliotopoulos to adapt. Agnes is a 16-year-old girl who inherits not only her grandfather's estate, but also his ability to talk to the dead. So just like Ricky Gervais got swamped by the dead masses in Ghost Town, Agnes becomes the focus of her town's passed population. It sounds cute, and could certainly make for a fun tale.
