I suspect this film will never get made with this cast, but you might eventually see A Boy Named Sue on screens in some form. In a piece about Ryan Reynolds forming a TV production company with Allan Loeb, Deadline reports on the film, written by Loeb, which has Ryan Reynolds attached to star as ” a guy who disguises himself as a woman to win his ex-girlfriend back.” So it is kind of Tootsie by way of Johnny Cash, with a little extra romantic comedy? Maybe? Despite the fact that Ryan Reynolds and Allan Loeb are developing this as part of a whole slate of stuff they’ve got cooking, I bet this gets made with someone else in the lead.

After the break, two great character actors, Garret Dillahunt and Walton Goggins, get new gigs. Read More »

Add moments with Garret Dillahunt, John Hawkes and Jennifer Lawrence, who has been getting the breakout performance accolades this year that were showered upon Carey Mulligan in 2009. Read More »

Last House on the Left Movie Trailer

Rouge Pictures has released the movie trailer for the remake of The Last House on the Left, the landmark suspense thriller that launched Wes Craven’s directing career. Is it just me or does this actually look like a fun thriller for a change? I haven’t seen Craven’s original in years but I don’t remember it looking this good. I’m also enjoying the extremely different and creepy cover of Sweet Child of Mine (anyone know who did it?) Watch the trailer and leave your thoughts after the jump.
