The title “How to Talk to Girls at Parties” brings to mind something very specific, yet this movie is not at all what you think it’s going to be. Clue one: it is based on a short story by Neil Gaiman, the writer behind Sandman and Stardust. Clue two: it’ll be co-written and directed by John Cameron Mitchell, the creator of Hedwig and the Angry Inch and, most recently, the director of Rabbit Hole. That heartbreaking film starred Nicole Kidman and she’ll reteam with the director for this one. So what’s it about? It’s a musically charged, Romeo and Juliet-influenced, love story involving punks and aliens.
As previously reported, Elle Fanning is still attached, and they’ll be joined by Matt Lucas and Ruth Wilson. Read more about How to Talk to Girls At Parties below. Read More »
Now over a decade old, Mean Girls has become one of the most well-regarded teen films of the 2000s. Written by Tina Fey, directed by Mark Waters and starring Lindsay Lohan, the smart, saavy satire painted a believable, funny portrayal of high school life that’s still speaking to audiences today. Fey’s script, her first, was based on a book called Queen Bees and Wannabes by Rosalind Wiseman and now Wiseman’s follow up is also getting the film treatment.
The film will be called Mean Moms, based on Wiseman’s book Queen Bee Moms & King Pin Dads. Sean Anders (Horrible Bosses 2) will direct and Jennifer Aniston is potentially circling one of the leads. Read about the Mean Girls spinoff below. Read More »
