Amy Poehler and Adam Scott have shown such fantastic chemistry in NBC’s Parks & Recreation that the pair are gearing up to work together again. This time, however, they won’t be romancing each other — far from it. Poehler has entered talks to join Scott in A.C.O.D., in which he plays a man named Carter who discovers that years ago, he was enrolled in a study about children of divorce. When he’s called upon for a follow-up study, chaos breaks out among his family and he struggles to keep the peace.
Richard Jenkins and Catherine O’Hara are set to play Carter’s parents, while Poehler has entered final negotiations for the role of Jenkins’ new wife. That’s right: Leslie Knope will be Ben Wyatt’s stepmom in this movie. Which is even more awkward than that time Leslie’s mom hit on Ben. Yeesh.
Shooting on A.C.O.D. is scheduled to start next week in Atlanta with Stu Zicherman at the helm. Jessica Alba, Jane Lynch, and Mary Elizabeth Winstead also star. [Deadline]

Can we assume that Robert Downey Jr. has become a fan of Iron Man 3 screenwriter Drew Pearce? Months before Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows opens, Pearce has been hired to write the provisional Sherlock Holmes 3 for Warner Bros. (Just as the studio hired A Game of Shadows screenwriters Kieran and Michele Mulroney to get to work on the script before Sherlock Holmes opened.) And since Pearce is writing the third Iron Man film, something Downey is likely quite involved in given his admitted disappointment with the second movie, it isn’t difficult to assume that Downey had a hand in suggesting him to pen Sherlock 3. No plot has been revealed for the potential third film at this time. [Deadline]

So there is a fourth Spy Kids movie, which was shot in 3D but also features a ’4D’ element Robert Rodriguez and Dimension are calling ‘AromaScope,’ and I’m not sure what else to say about it. This is a movie for kids, pure and simple, with Jessica Alba playing either a secret agent whose emotional response to the world around her has been damaged by some severe interrogation, or a suburban mom who can’t go six hours without a valium. Or perhaps both. There’s a new trailer that flogs the AromaScope angle and you can see, but not smell it after the break.

Depending on what you want out of Robert Rodriguez, this first trailer for Spy Kids: All the Time in the World may either instill dismay (“he made this instead of a ‘real’ movie?”) or happiness (“if he wants to make this, then let someone else do Deadpool“). This looks like a Canadian promo for the film — check the Alliance logo where the Weinstein-related one should be — but I imagine it is very similar to the US trailer we’re likely to see. Check it out below. Read More »
We’ve seen a teaser and an international trailer for Little Fockers, the second sequel to Meet the Parents, and now there is a full theatrical trailer. What’s the difference? In addition to showing more plot and (depending on your point of view) jokes, this trailer has a few shots of Dustin Hoffman, whose mart was shot after the teaser debuted. Read More »
Director Robert Rodriguez is hard at work filming Spy Kids 4: All The Time In The World and photos of three of his stars have leaked online. They show Jessica Alba, decidedly clothed like in her last Rodriguez film, along with the original Spy Kids Carmen and Juni Cortez, played by Alexa Vega and Daryl Sabara. They’re not kids anymore, though, so in the latest film – due August 19 – they’ll pass the reigns to Marissa’s (Alba) kids Rebecca (Rowan Blanchard) and Cecil (Mason Cook) in order to battle the Timekeeper, played by Jeremy Piven. Check out the photos after the break along with more info on the film. Read More »
