History is happening here, folks. Please take a moment, open your journals, and write this information down. Trust me, you’ll want to always remember where you were when you first heard this news. Emily Blunt might appear in a good movie. Years of indentured servitude to 20th Century Fox have forced her to pass on films like Iron Man 2 in favor of Gulliver’s Travels, but now it looks like she is free and clear to team up with Nicholas Stoller and Jason Segal for their Forgetting Sarah Marshall follow-up, The Five-Year Engagement.
The story centers around a couple who are hesitant to put a ring on it. Comedy will be a departure for Blunt (Gulliver’s Travels doesn’t count) but I believe she’ll shine in this role. As a fan of Segal and Blunt, I fully approve of this. Let’s ge Paul Rudd attached and call it a day. (Vulture)
