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 »

William Petersen has always been a bit careful about choosing work, and now that he’s gone from CSI, he’s looking at features once more. He’s in Tony Kaye’s Detachment now, but that’s his first feature since 2000. Now he is negotiating to join Seeking a Friend at the End of the World, which already had the odd pairing of Steve Carell and Keira Knightley. Along with him come Adam Brody and Rob Corddry.

Lorene Scafaria (writer, Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist) wrote and will direct; the story picks up when an asteroid threatens to end life on Earth. The main character is “a man whose wife leaves him amidst the ensuing panic, prompting him to seek out his high school sweetheart, who yearns to be with him when doomsday arrives. Knightley plays the female lead, a neighbor of Carell’s character who accompanies him on a romantic road trip to find her.” We don’t know the roles that Adam Brody and Rob Corddry will play.
