That headline may have caused some heart palpitations, so let me break it down for you. Quentin Tarantino‘s Jackie Brown was based on the Elmore Leonard novel 1992 Rum Punch. Rum Punch utilized many of the same characters as Elmore Leonard’s 1978 novel The Switch, which features younger versions of both the Samuel L. Jackson and Robert DeNiro characters. Those younger characters will be played by Mos Def and John Hawkes, but I won’t tell you who’s playing what role because I get off on being witholding.

Hang on. I’m not done clarifying.

Jennifer Aniston and Dennis Quaid are likely going to star in the film based on The Switch, which is now titled simply Switch, because Jennifer Aniston was already in a movie called The Switch.

Ok. Now a few words on the plot. Switch will focus on a husband (Quaid) who refuses to pay the ransom for his wife (Aniston) who he doesn’t want back. Aniston teams up with the kidnappers for revenge.

I regret there isn’t more room for snark in this article, but I just had to cram this thing so full of facts and clarifications. Soon, though. Soon.

The new trailer for Footloose is exactly what you’d think it would be: Footloose, but, you know, for MTV.

The story seems to be the exact same as the Kevin Bacon original, except now the high school students are crumping. Because all kids in 2011, even in the small towns, crump almost daily. The census taught us that.

John Lithgow‘s big, bad dad is now played by Dennis Quaid. Hmm…what else? The lead character shows up for the first day of school in a hipster tie, so it’s hard to feel sorry about everything that happens to him from that point on. Then Julianne Hough comes in with her attitude and sunglasses and hips. I like that.

And from there characters appear to race modified school buses in a junkyard. What? Yes.

Well hello there, cowpokes! I can tell by that gleam in yer eye that you’re a-lookin’ for casting updates coming out of the Cannes Film Festival. Well saddle up, pardner, because here we go! Yee-haw.

First up out of the corral is Dennis Quaid, who’s joining Jeremy Irons and Bradley Cooper in The Words. Quaid will play “Clay Hammond, a celebrated writer, in the tale in which Cooper’s character, another writer, discovers the price he must pay for stealing the work of another man, played by Irons.” Sounds like a rootin’-tootin’ good time, and also a meditation on creativity and plagiarism. (The Hollywood Reporter)

Next up under the branding iron are cowpokes Orlando Bloom and Nick Nolte, who’ve been cast in “coming-of-age road-trip comedy” Idea in America along with Stanley Tucci and Cristiana Capotondi. (The Hollywood Reporter)

The no. 3 spot on this rodeo is held by Helen Hunt, who’s a-gonna direct and star in romantic comedy Ride. A romantic comedy starring and directed by Helen Hunt? YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE-HAW!

Finally, we got England‘s Number 1 Wrangler Colin Firth, who will play the lead role in an untitled comedy to be directed by Dante Ariola from a script written by Becky Johnston. Here’s a plot synopsis, which rolls through your field of vision like a tumblin’ tumbleweed: “Firth plays a man who hates his job and is hated by his ex-wife and son. Feeling he missed his one shot at living the dream, he fakes his death and buys a new identity.” (Deadline)

Gerard Butler’s abdominal muscles are about to give Old Man Dennis Quaid a reality check. The objects of housewife fantasies past and present will star opposite one another in Gabriele Muccino‘s Playing The Field.

In the film, known cat-milker Quaid (see photo) and Butler will play rival soccer coaches in the suburbs. There’s no word whether they will compete off the field for the affections of Uma Thurman or Jessica Biel, but it’s reported that Thurman’s character gets tingly in the pants for Gerard Butler.

Muccino is known for having directed Seven Pounds and The Pursuit Of Happyness. And while his spelling sucks, he does have at least one okay film under his belt. And Dennis Quaid likes those odds! (Blackfilm)

If there was one critique of Soul Surfer‘s teaser trailer, it was that the film didn’t look nearly gross enough. Problem solved!

This new look at the film finally gets around to showing that shark attack that costs the protagonist her arm… but not her love of surfing. Did you hear that, sharks?! You can eat our arms but not our spirits!! Anyway, whereas the earlier trailer was wholesome and full of hugs, this new one spends way too much time showing off that nasty arm stub. Gross. It’s times like these that I hate movie-blogging. Some of us are trying to eat Cheetos over here.

Soul Surfer, the true story about Bethany Hamilton and her survival of a shark attack that cost her her arm, has a trailer. And it looks…wholesome. In fact, nowhere in the 1:14 clip does it reference or even acknowledge the fact that something might go wrong. It’s all surfing and hugs and fireworks. This shouldn’t be much of a surprise considering it’s an inspirational story featuring the likes of Dennis Quaid, Helen Hunt, AnnaSophia Robb, Carrie Underwood, and no less than Hercules himself, Kevin Sorbo. One would think they would at least allude to the fact that this cute blonde girl is going to get her arm bitten off by a shark. It’s not like they can use that as a twist in the film; it was a national news story. The working title of this film was basically The Movie about the Girl Who Got Her Arm Bitten off by a Shark, so it’s unlikely that anyone will be caught off guard when girlfriend loses a limb.

I’m sure as we get closer to the April 15 release date, we’ll be privy to the darker half of the film. In the meantime, enjoy the trailer for Blue Crush Lite! (Coming Soon)

They Found Some Kid to Star in the ‘Footloose’ Remake http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/they-found-some-kid-to-star-in-the-footloose-remake/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/they-found-some-kid-to-star-in-the-footloose-remake/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 The cast for the Footloose remake has finally been set. Yaaaaay... Julianne Hough is already on board to play the girl, and Dennis Quaid is playing John Lithgow's role of Strict Preacher Father. But I'm guessing you want to know who's filling Kevin Bacon's fancy shoes?It's Kenny Wormwald! You probably remember him from the MTV series "Dancelife" and the film Center Stage: Turn it Up, the sequel to Center Stage. He  can dance, and the film's director, Craig Brewer (Hustle & Flow), must also think he can act. Why else would be turn down Zac Efron and Chase Crawford for an unknown? Oh and some kid named Miles Teller is playing the Chris Penn friend to Bacon role.Listen, all of this is moot unless Kenny Loggins comes out of hiding and records a new song for the soundtrack. Or Kanye just remixes the original "Footloose" pop sensation. Imagine what Strict Preacher Father would think if all the kids were listening to black people music. Getting crunk is forbidden in his little town.
