A sequel to the spy spoof hit Get Smart is pretty much confirmed with original lead Steve Carrell reprising his role. As for co-star Anne Hathaway, she previously indicated her desire for a sequel.
Lethal Weapon 5, which was written and should be directed by series creator Shane Black, has apparently been put on the fast track according to potential castmember Columbus Short (Stomp The Yard).
Rumor has it that actor Johnny Depp is being paid 56 million dollars to reprise his Jack Sparrow role in Pirates Of The Caribbean 4. If that’s true, it would make him the highest paid actor in upfront salary.
Up-and-coming actress Anne Hathaway (Get Smart) has snagged the lead role in The Opposite Of Love, based on an eponymous bestseller by Julie Buxbaum. She will play a lawyer who’s afraid to commit and sees her life change after she turns down her boyfirend’s marriage proposal. Virtually unknown actress Kara Holden (Pride & Prejudice) makes her screenwriting debut with this film for some reason.
Could this be a new The Devil Wears Prada for Hathaway, who recently expressed her enthusiasm for a Get Smart sequel and declared that Prada sequel plans have been scrapped? In any case you can next see the actress in the drama Rachel Getting Married, which opens in the US on October 3rd after having made the festival rounds. Also, watch the trailer for her by-the-numbers looking Bride Wars.
25 year old actress Anne Hathaway is entusiastic about reprising her Agent 99 role in an eventual Get Smart sequel:
I would love to do a second one. But I haven’t heard if we’re going to. I hope we get to. I really loved playing Agent 99, it would be fun to do all the training again, and hanging out with all those boys was so much fun.
I actually haven’t seen Get Smart yet, so I can’t really express my enthusiasm or lack thereof. The actress will next be seen in the drama Rachel Getting Married, which will come out on limited release in the US October 3rd.
Which would you rather? Get Smart 2 or The Princess Diaries 3? How about Brokeback Mountain 2: Lesbian Edition and The Devil Wears Gucci?
