Will Smith wants his Men In Black boss to write Annie for his daughter, Willow. No, Rip Torn won’t be adapting the famous musical (though that would be awesome). Men In Black III‘s Emma Thompson is his first pick to write the film that he’s producing with Jay-Z. Thompson is well-suited for this material because she’s British.

Actually, she’s well-suited because of her prior scripting work. She wrote Sense and Sensibility as well as the Nanny McPhee films. That paints an awesome visual of Jay-Z and Beanie Sigel and Freeway sitting around watching Sense and Sensibility together. All really quiet and really engrossed. (Vulture)

Abraham Lincoln Now Hunts Vampires And Pixar Movies http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/abraham-lincoln-now-hunts-vampires-and-pixar-movies/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/abraham-lincoln-now-hunts-vampires-and-pixar-movies/#comments Thu, 17 Mar 2011 02:36:14 +0000 Geoffrey Golden http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=202100 'Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter' will try to stake Pixar's 'The Brave' at the box office. *Gasps*

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter has practicall taken four score and seven years to lock-in a director, but now the film’s got another big problem on the horizon. It will have to stake Pixar at the box office. *Gasps*

Disney has changed the release date of the new Pixar movie The Brave to June 22nd, pitting the film against the much buzzed about out AL:VH, which has a nice lookin’ acronym. Pixar films always suck serious blood at the box office, and I don’t think there’s a Pixar movie that hasn’t opened at #1 in wide release. Those cartoon guys don’t shit around.

However, The Brave – which stars the highly distinctive voices of Reese Witherspoon and Emma Thompson – may have a flaw in its CG armor. The film was supposed to be directed by Brenda Chapman (The Prince of Egypt), who would have been Pixar’s first female director. Mid-way through, Pixar Boys Club member Mark Andrews (“One Man Band” short) took the reigns.

Even so, Lincoln‘s chances of beating The Brave are as likely as the old South being like, “yeah, we’ll give up our slaves. No problemo, Aberino.” (TheWrap)

Sony Pictures has decided to keep David Koepp after MiB III class. The writer has been hired to do several more weeks worth of work on the script bugs for the galaxy defending sequel and revise the words that will come out of the cast’s pretty mouths.

The production have yet to shoot the sequence that shows Will Smith’s Agent J in 1969, where he meets Josh Brolin as Young Tommy Lee Jones and Alice Eve as Young Emma Thompson. Perhaps those are the scenes that need the most work according to Sony. Either that or they want more jokes about how Elvis could totally secretly be an alien. (Deadline)

The idea machine that is Hollywood has cooked up a real corker of a concept: British diction specialist Colin Firth should star in a remake of My Fair Lady. Miracle of miracles, whoever dreamed that up should get a Bentley. Firth has been pursued for the role of Henry Higgins in the Emma Thompson scripted remake of the Lerner and Loewe musical before, along with a million other batted around names. The studio wanted Hugh Grant, while original director Danny Boyle wanted Daniel Day-Lewis for the role so much that he even dropped out of the project when he couldn’t land him. Carey Mulligan is attached as Eliza Doolittle, a role that at one point was linked to Keira Knightley, Anne Hathaway, Emily Blunt, and many others. Current director John Madden still wants Firth, and although the actor is next committed to the Coen Brothers scripted Gambit, he’s the top choice for the film.

The film has been delayed for a slew of reasons, from Mulligan’s shooting schedule, to the rights of the source material being tied up in various places. It seems that CBS owns some of it, as do the estates of Lerner and Loewe and also George Bernard Shaw. Regardless, these are not insurmountable issues, and all parties are reasonably confident that they can get the film in theaters by 2013. Colin Firth will just have to take a yea break from winning every award in history. Maybe he can take a vacation or something. A very proper and British vacation. (The Playlist)

The British actress who last played ugly, but I'm sure charming in her own right, Nanny McPhee will play Oh in Men in Black 3. Thompson will be the new boss in charge, as Rip Torn can no longer be trusted to keep a super secret government agency on the rails **mimes taking swig of whisky**. Good luck getting Tommy Lee Jones to take orders from a woman. He's going to scowl a whole lot more than usual. (Deadline)
