Here’s another pack of new images for you. Bridesmaids may sound like a boilerplate matrimonial comedy to bookend the truly awful Bride Wars, but the film is from Kristen Wiig, Paul Feig and Judd Apatow. So barring any continued sense of Apatow fatigue (that is: hopefully the movie is under two and half hours long) this one might be a lot more than the title implies.
After that, we’ve got a pic of Jennifer Connelly and Ed Harris in What’s Wrong With Virginia?, a shot of Megan Fox and Mickey Rourke (above) in Passion Play, and Keanu Reeves and Vera Farmiga in Henry’s Crime, co-written by the director of Anvil! The Story of Anvil. Read More »
Some decent casting notes cropped up in the trade breaks last night, and because I’m just this sort of nice guy I’m about to round up the best for you.
First involves James Caan and Vera Farmiga, who’ve just joined Keanu Reeves in Henry’s Crime. The film, you may remember, is written by Anvil! director Sacha Gervasi, and will be directed by Malcolm Venville, recently of 44-Inch Chest. Farmiga is the love interest for Reeves, who is falsely accused of robbing a bank in Buffalo. Producer Jordan Schur calls the script “a genius comic fable.” Gervasi himself called it “a twisted, romantic comedy, very dark and funny,” which the trades refer to it as a romantic comedy and Capraesque. So who knows what the hell we’ll see out of this one. [Variety]

Months ago, The Playlist mentioned that Sacha Gervasi, producer and director of Anvil! The Story of Anvil had written a film called Henry’s Crime, and that Keanu Reeves was attached to star. (Reeves is evidently a big fan of Gervasi’s rock doc.) Now the trades have finally confirmed the deal, and Reeves will start work on the film in November. Read More »
