Judd Apatow’s Winning Streak May End

leave a comment »

Judd Apatow, the director of such hearlded films as Superbad and Knocked Up, has a new movie he produced out this weekend called Drillbit Taylor. The movie follows a drifter (Owen Wilson), who is hired by a group of high school freshman as a body guard. It was co-written by Seth Rogen who is all over the place these days.The premise seems to be set up for a lot of laughs but the trailers I’ve seen haven’t looked that good. Also, the consensus from critics seems to be that it is “the suck”. Let me know what you think if you go see it this weekend.

It’s nice to see Judd’s wife, Leslie Mann, getting some love these days. She was great in knocked up and deserves to be getting more love from casting directors.

Did Michael Cera Kill The Arrested Development Movie?

leave a comment »

Michael Cera has signed on to yet another movie without the word’s Arrested Development in the title.

He is now signed to play Scott Pilgrim in the indie-rock cartoon/graphic novel turned movie. It will be called Scott Pilgrim’s Little Life and will be produced by Universal. The story surrounds Scott meeting the girl of his dreams and defeating her seven evil ex-boyfriends in order to win her love

So, this means that Michael Cera will be tied up with yet another movie. This means that he will be spending a considerable amount of time promoting and doing voice work for the movie over the next year. On the other hand, this gives Michael Cera more exposure. Exposure is good because it makes the potential Arrested Development movie more bankable. Also, because it’s a cartoon, voice work won’t take a considerable amount of time.

Please answer my prayers for an AD movie. Here’s my archived post from last week about the Arrested Development movie.

Reading reviews is nice

Knowing which reviewers to read is better

Reading an overview of reviews, sorted by reviewer, is best
