New Trailer and Poster: Confessions Of A Shopaholic

Confessions Of A Shopaholic, based on a series of novels by Sophie Kinsella has long been hyped as the new The Devil Wears Prada. There’s only one problem though, that movie was actually good, while this looks bad, bad, bad. In any case the film will premiere in the US and Russia just before Valentine’s Day 2009.

Adapted by Tim Firth (Calendar Girls) and Tracey Jackson (The Guru), Confessions Of A Shopaholic tells, obviously enough of a compulsive shopper who gets in over her head in financial trouble. Directed by P.J. Hogan (Peter Pan), the film stars Isla Fisher (Definitely, Maybe), Hugh Dancy (The Jane Austen Book Club), Krysten Ritter (What Happens In Vegas), Joan Cusack (Kit Kittredge: An American Girl), John Goodman (Speed Racer), Leslie Bibb (Iron Man), Kristin Scott Thomas (The Other Boleyn Girl) and John Lithgow (Dreamgirls).

I’m actually a guy who enjoys so-called “chick flicks” but this just made me cringe, from the unfunny silliness of it all to the way Fisher says “Gucci”…*shudder*…What do you think? Also, why the hell is action man Jerry Bruckheimer (the National Treasure films) producing this?

Anne Hathaway will be at The Opposite Of Love

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.

Anne Hathaway is ready to Get Smart again

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?

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).
