New movies for Amy Adams, Natalie Portman, Vince Vaughn, Adrien Brody and…Tom Ford

Amy Adams (Charlie Wilson’s War) will star in the biopic Daughter Of The Queen Of Sheba.

Script, penned by Karen Croner based on the bio of NPR correspondent Jacki Lyden, centers on how a woman uses her mother’s madness and delusions to empower herself.

Karen Croner previously wrote the Oscar-nominated One True Thing. Source.

Natalie Portman (The Other Boleyn Girl), Scott Cohen (Law & Order: Trial By Jury) and Charlie Tahan (Nights In Rodanthe) will star in Love And Other Impossible Pursuits, written and directed by Don Roos (Happy Endings) and based on a novel by Ayelet Waldman.

Story revolves around a young woman who finds the key to recovering her marriage in her relationship with her precocious stepson.

Natalie Portman, who also serves as an executive producer, replaces Jennifer Lopez (Bordertown) who abruptly dropped out of the role…Quite an upgrade if you ask me. Source.

Colin Firth (Mamma Mia!), Julianne Moore (Blindness) and Matthew Goode (Match Point) will star in the drama A Single Man for newcomer helmer and former Gucci creative director and fashion guru Tom Ford.

“A Single Man,” penned by Ford and David Scearce, centers on a British college professor who loses his partner of 16 years. The script’s adapted from Christopher Isherwood‘s 1964 novel, which follows a single day in a professor’s life in Los Angeles.

Christopher Isherwood’s writings also inspired the 1972 classic Cabaret. Source.

Vince Vaughn (Fred Claus) will produce and star in Sunny And 68, a drama with comedic elements from co-writer/director Gavin O’Connor (Pride And Glory).

Vaughn will play a superstar on the poker circuit whose alcoholism and recklessness cause him to flame out on national television. Wiped out and owing $500,000 to bookies, he heads home to upstate New York for the first time in 20 years, looking to take back cash he’d been sending his mother. Instead, he finds his mother dying of cancer and raising a 5-year-old girl who is actually his daughter. Mom has been positioning his former high school g.f. to become the girl’s eventual caretaker.

And eventually the three women teach the character to grow up. O’Connor wrote the script with newcomer Anthony Tambakis. Source.

Adrien Brody (The Darjeeling Limited) will play the lead in The Courier, a new action film from back-in-the-spotlight director Russell Mulcahy (Resident Evil: Extinction) and writers Michael Brandt & Derek Haas (Wanted). The film, which will start lensing this January in Louisiana and Las Vegas, has Brody portraying a Transporter-ish character who’s pursued by everyone while attempting to deliver a package to a mobster that just can’t be found.

Kate Hudson has settled on token rebound guy (no more applicants please)

The recently single Kate Hudson (Fool’s Gold), whose constant need of penis is well documented, has once again united with funnyman Owen Wilson (Drillbit Taylor), which makes this the third time the two blondes have been together. Let’s remember that Wilson attempted suicide early in 2007, a move widely believed to have been brought by Hudson just dumping him for the first time. But nothing happened after the second dumping, so one can assume she explained to him that from now on, she’s just going to come back to him each time one of her other relationships end.

The pretty 29 year old, who just separated from biker Lance Armstrong, has slept with pretty much everyone in Hollywood by now, and while I appreciate that can’t stay alone for five minutes, I have to wonder, when’s my turn? Sure, I don’t live in America but celebrities travel all the time, so Kate, if you’re reading and want a piece of me, contact me for details. Seriously.

Kate Hudson will next be seen in My Best Friend’s Girl, a comedy from director Howard Deutch (The Whole Ten Yards), alongside Alec Baldwin (30 Rock), Dane Cook (Good Luck Chuck), Lizzy Caplan (Cloverfield) and Jason Biggs (the first three American Pie movies). Owen Wilson’s next, the comedy Marley & Me,  co-stars the similarly bed-hopping Jennifer Aniston (The Break-Up)  as well as Alan Arkin (Get Smart), and is directed by The Devil Wears Prada helmer David Frankel. The movie is based on a bestselling nonficiton book by John Grogan, which was adapted by Scott Frank (The Lookout) and Don Roos (Happy Endings).
