The Gentlemanly Movie News Roundup


  • Forest Whitaker and Jude Law will star together in The Repossession Mambo, a futuristic thriller in which "artificial organs can be bought on credit, with the understanding that defaulting on payment will result in a fatal repossession." The movie will be directed by first-timer Miguel Sapochnik, who must be thrilled to have gotten such big talent for his first directorial venture.
  • What with Punch Drunk Love and Reign Over Me, Adam Sandler has proven himself a fairly versatile guy. However, I did a double-take when reading that he's producing and starring in a movie based on a Mitch Albom book (you know, the guy who writes a lot of "just before death" books like Tuesdays With Morrie and The Five People You Meet in Heaven). The made-for-TV movie version of Tuesdays With Morrie was nearly as sappy as the book is, so I am curious to find out what Sandler and Co. can do with another weepy Albom piece.
  • In other boy comedy news, Ben Stiller has enlisted his buddy Owen Wilson, along with Nick Nolte, in Tropic Thunder for which Stiller is acting as writer/director/producer. The story follows "a group of actors who go on location to shoot a war movie, only to find that reality replicates their plot." War is so funny!
