You may have noticed a severe drop in the number of Katherine Heigl movies over the past few years but you should know that has nothing to do with the rumors that Katherine Heigl is difficult to work with. So says Katherine Heigl.

While doing a Television Critics Association panel for her new NBC series, State of Affairs, Heigl was railroaded by reporters who were not interested in her show and much more interested in the rumors that she is a b-word. State of Affairs showrunner Ed Bernero tried to intervene for a visibly uncomfortable Heigl, but was silenced by critics who maintain that Heigl answer.

Heigl defended her checkered reputation by saying, “I certainly don’t see myself as being difficult; I would never intend to be difficult… It’s always important to everybody to conduct themselves professionally and respectfully and kindly, so if I have ever disappointed somebody, it was never intentional.”

This defense makes a lot of sense if you don’t consider all of those times where Katherine Heigl has publicly exhibited difficult behaviors. So there you have it, Katherine Heigl = not difficult. On a sidenote, Katherine Heigl would also like you to know that she never hunted homeless people for sport. Definitely didn’t happen. In case that’s something that you heard too. (THR)

Forbes decided to break out their calculators and make millionaires feel bad about themselves by comparing how much actors got paid for given movies against how much the movie eventually earned. King and Queen Loser are Eddie Murphy and Katherine Heigl.

Murphy’s films grossed $2.30 for every $1 he earned, and Heigl’s grossed $3.40 for every $1 she earned. Of course, money isn’t the true barometer of personal value. It’s also their terrible attitudes that help to determine. But it’s still good to have science backing this up.

The rest full list from Forbes:

1. Eddie Murphy ($2.30 for every $1 paid)
2. Katherine Heigl ($3.40 for every $1 paid)
3. Reese Witherspoon ($3.90 for every $1 paid)
4. Sandra Bullock ($5 for every $1 paid)
5. Jack Black ($5.20 for every $1 paid)
6. Nicolas Cage ($6 for every $1 paid)
7. Adam Sandler ($6.30 for every $1 paid)
8. Denzel Washington ($6.30 for every $1 paid)
9. Ben Stiller ($6.50 for every $1 paid)
10. Sarah Jessica Parker ($7 for every $1 paid)

We’ve Got The Treatment For Garry Marshall’s Next Romantic Comedy, ‘Wedding Day’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/weve-got-the-treatment-for-garry-marshalls-next-romantic-comedy-wedding-day/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/weve-got-the-treatment-for-garry-marshalls-next-romantic-comedy-wedding-day/#comments Mon, 12 Dec 2011 23:21:05 +0000 Mark Potts http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=239535 I'm pretty sure this is real.

The post We’ve Got The Treatment For Garry Marshall’s Next Romantic Comedy, ‘Wedding Day’ appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
EXCLUSIVE. Garry Marshall plans on completing his “Day” trilogy, not with a holiday, but with a wedding! Katherine Fugate who penned Valentine’s Day and New Year’s Eve, will write this film as well.

While the final screenplay is months away, we found the following rough treatment, supposedly written by Marshall and Fugate, on the Internet. Is it real? We think so. Take a look and decide for yourself.

Hilary Swank plays Nikki Foster, the blushing bride. This is a day she has dreamed of forever (as told through sepia-toned flashbacks to when she was a kid and playing with Barbies in her room, creating wedding scenarios with various other toys. The husband toy is a Ninja Turtle, but which turtle remains to be determined.)

Her groom is Howard (Howie) Sharts, played by Ashton Kutcher. Howie loves Nikki, but is having issues with the idea that he will be off the market. As told in sepia-toned flashbacks, Howie has always had it easy when getting ladies, even going as far as kissing his third-grade math teacher! He jokes about having feelings for that teacher still. YOU’LL SEE!

Nikki’s Maid-of-Honor is played by Selena Gomez, a young intern at the talent agency she manages. She’s zany and out there, but loving. But, she is worried Nikki isn’t going to get her dream wedding because of their family.

The family is so crazy!

Foster’s parents are played by Marshall and a famous old lady, hopefully Meryl Streep. If not her, then Fergie and we’ll just add some young-bride jokes. It’ll be hilarious. We might just do that. Anyway, they’re uber religious which is upsetting to the Sharts: Robert DeNiro and Al Pacino! They are a fun-loving old gay couple. Will their alternative lifestyle ruin the wedding? WHO KNOWS! (We do, but we’re holding it in.)

The Best Man is none other than Justin Bieber. He is going to this wedding in full hook-up mode. (Do you see a Bieber/Gomez duet at the reception? BECAUSE WE DO! Ahhhhhhh-dorable.)

Nikki’s boss, Barry Face, is also thinking of attending. He is played by Axel Rose. He doesn’t know if he wants to attend because he’s had feelings for Nikki in the past. Nikki has even thought about going along with those feelings, but stops due to her love for Howie. Barry’s wife is played by Queen Latifah. She is a crazy lady who is always trying to raise the roof. It’ll be hilarious. (GARY MARSHALL’S NOTE: I like how she is black but not too black, you know?)

Nikki’s old high school BFF is also attending. This is Rachel, played by Jessica Biel. She wanted to fly but due to her husband’s fear of flying, cannot. They have to roadtrip it across country. And who is her husband? Kanye West! They have fun along the way, but also have hard times and stuff. Do they make it? Who knows? Do they come back together at the end when Latifah joins the Bieber/Gomez duet? Wink!

Shart’s friends are also coming! His buddy from college, Dillon Dong (that name will always be funny!) played by Jamie Foxx, is super excited to make it. But he’s worried about his wife’s condition. She is pregnant, not with one kid, BUT WITH SEVEN! (GARY MARSHALL’S NOTE: That’s a lot of oreos!) The wife is played by Abigail Breslin

The florist of the wedding is crazy! This part is played by Katherine Heigl. You guys, she’s really crazy. Like, she gets all upset when things aren’t correct. She’s always worried about the weather that day, trying to always get the most up-to-date news from Kris Humphries, the local TV Weather Man! He is really laid back and just loves clouds. They have a hateful relationship, but as you know, a flower can grow from “Dung.” HAHAHAHA. (GARY MARSHALL’S NOTE: HAHAHA).

The rest of Nikki’s wedding party is played by the girls from Glee. Will they sing? You never know! (GARY MARSHALL’S NOTE: Yes.)

Sharts’ wedding party isn’t as big. Just his best man and Kyle Hurffs, played by Taylor Lautner. Kyle is shy and reserved. He is always looking for love in all the wrong places. He wonders if maybe the love of his life will be at the wedding.

And maybe it is, as Lilly Collins, played by Kathy Bates.

Meanwhile, the priest for the wedding is doubting his faith. Father Patrick McIrishname, played by George Lopez, is wondering if God even exists. This worries Sharts, who is wondering if love exists! How can they help each other?

They can help each other by talking to a Jewish Rabbi played by Ludacris! Luda is a Jew with a smooth attitude (GARY MARSHALL’S NOTE: Have him do a dance at the wedding called the Dreidel Cradle, where he sticks his legs out, jumps, and spins.)

Then there are the caterers! Sammy and Danny, played by Lady Gaga and Andy Serkis (who will actually be CGI in the movie, done through motion capture technology by Andy Serkis). They are always fighting about what kind of food to make. Sammy wants crazy! Danny wants elegant. These two really hate each other. But will they f*ck? Nope, they’re siblings! Crazy, right?

Everyone makes it to the wedding. It’s five minutes until Sharts is suppose to go to the alter, but something happens: his third-grade math teacher Mr. Taints played by Rip Torn! Sharts doesn’t know if he wants to have a gay life with him, or a straight life with Nikki. He is torn inside. That’s when Father McIrishname enters and tells Sharts that he needs to follow his heart.

Sharts thinks about it, gives his Mr. Taints a hug and says, “Sorry. But my love for Nikki can’t be subtracted.” Father McIrishname then sees Jesus giving him a thumbs up from the alter. Jesus is to be played by Tim Allen.

Then they get married and everyone is happy. Also, Breslin’s babies are delivered on the dance floor and the movie ends with everyone sliding around, laughing and having fun.

When I was a child, and I’d ask my grandma what she was getting me for Christmas, her answer was always the same: a blivet, which she described as “Two pounds of shit in a one pound bag.” I think “blivet” pretty much sums up New Year’s Eve, a film that’s bursting at the seems with bullshit.

In this movie, average people are extremely concerned about the status of the ball in Times Square, low-level city employees are allowed to give impassioned speeches on national television, and men give up three-way sex romps to be with Sarah Jessica Parker. What planet is this supposed to be?

Granted, it’s a romantic comedy, so suspension of disbelief is a must. And to be fair, I’m not a fan of “rom-coms,” especially when they have huge ensemble casts. For example, I hate the movie Love Actually. Even so, at the end of the day, I can get past my own bias and admit that it’s well made, well acted, and succeeds at what it sets out to do (make stupid people gush). New Year’s Eve, on the other hand, has none of those redeeming qualities. It’s insulting on almost every level.

" Hey, Rob. Where do we pick up our checks?"

It’s one thing for a movie to have a boring plot. It’s quite another to have ten boring plots, each more cliche than the next. It wasn’t that hard to keep track of everything, but it was extremely difficult to care. That probably had something to do with the performances. I expect Zac Efron to act like a robot, but what’s Hillary Swank‘s excuse? Oh, right; the script. With dialog this bad, even the best actors wouldn’t stand a chance.

Speaking of which, who does Robert De Niro owe money to? The guy was in The Godfather Part II. He doesn’t have to do this. And then there’s poor Matthew Broderick. I’m assuming he did have to do this as a favor to his wife. His small role was painful to watch, mainly because he seemed to realize how pointless and unnecessary his presence was.

But I’ll give credit where credit is due. First of all, Katherine Heigl deserves an Oscar for her performance. Anyone who can convincingly pretend to be attracted to a 50-year-old botoxed Jon Bon Jovi has some real talent. And Ludacris was friggen outstanding as the random black cop who served no other purpose than explaining Hilary Swank‘s character to the audience. But other than than, it was pretty horrifying. At times, I actually had to look away from the screen. The worst offender might have been Sofia Vergara, who I normally like. Even a gratuitous cleavage shot could not redeem her character. We get it. You’re f*cking foreign and you have an accent. Who gives a shit?

At the end of the day, words really can’t describe how bad this film is, so I’ll sum it up with an animated gif.

Word in Tinseltown is that Fox has spun the Movie-matic movie-generating wheel and it came up “remake,” “Romancing the Stone,” and “Heigl/Butler.” So, our fate awaits.

For those who don’t remember or are too young and busy to visit ephemeral mid-80′s action romances, Romancing the Stone, which followed a romance novelist (Katleen Turner in the original) and a mercenary (Michael Douglas in the original) as they scramble around the jungle in familia Indiana Jones fashion until they fall in love.

The only thing to like about this possible remake is that the original featured Danny DeVito, who could very easily step right back into the same role, considering he doesn’t appear to have aged a day since 1984.

Beyond that, I don’t think we’ll get a lot of support for an Ugly Truth reunion on this website, so let’s put a provisional approval on this in the hopes that Katherine Heigl (improbably) gets topless, or Gerard Butler chops her head off in 300 fashion.

Time to saddle on up and head over to Casting Call Fields, to see which actors are getting rustled up for which Hollywood movies. Don’t look away while the casting director brands their actors with the iron, unless you’re a yellow-bellied coward.

Olivia Munn has officially joined Aaron Sorkin‘s HBO drama about what happens behind-the-scenes – whoa, there’s a behind-the scenes? – at a cable news show. Currently the series is called “More As The Story Develops.” When I wished I could “see more” of Olivia Munn, her suddenly getting a lot of acting work was not what I had in mind. Stupid monkey’s paw. Meanwhile, Allison Pill (Milk) joins the cast as an associate producer in a shaky relationship with another staffer. The reason the relationship’s shaky? He accidentally asked her to give him some “forehead.” (Hollywood Reporter)

The old and buster Spider-Man, Topher Grace, is set to star in Gently Down The Stream along with Robert De Niro, Diane Keaton, Amanda Seyfried and Katherine Heigl. He’ll play De Niro’s son, who falls in love with his adopted brother’s Latin sister. Eh, that kind of thing happens all the time, I’m sure. Justin Zackham is directing. (Deadline)

Rapper / actor / vitamin water aficionado 50 Cent will play blind DJ Shamus Cocobolo in Stephen Sommers‘ Odd Thomas. Yeah, that does sound odd. Based on the bestseller by Dean Koontz, the film’s about a clairvoyant short order cook (Anton Yelchin) who follows around a suspicious man connected to an impending disaster. Odd Thomas also stars Addison Timlin, Willem Dafoe and Patton Oswalt. (Variety)

Robert De Niro and Diane Keaton have both earned “lifetime passes” for their work in the 70s with filmmakers like Martin Scorsese, Francis Ford Coppola, and Woody Allen. Now, in 2011, they’re doing a movie with the guy who wrote The Bucket List.

The movie is called Gently Down The Stream, and it will also star Katherine Heigl and Amanda Seyfried, who presumably will not be joining De Niro and Keaton in harmonizing “Row, Row, Row Your Boat.” Here’s what they will be doing:

“De Niro and Keaton play a long-divorced couple who, for the sake of their adopted son’s wedding and his biological mother, pretend they are still married. They quickly learn that acting the part isn’t easy, especially when their past, present and future unravel for all to see.”

Sounds wacky! I hope there’s a scene where De Niro is like “No, we aren’t marr-I mean yes, we are married!” I’m already laughing. (Variety)

Actress/monstrosity Katherine Heigl, in a show of malevolence towards the moviegoers of America, is bringing her reign of terror to, not TV, but HBO. When will this woman stop? How many more people have to die, Ms. Heigl? The movie is The Knitting Circle, based on Ann Hood’s semi-autobiographical novel which Heigl will insidiously star in and produce along with her mother Nancy. Try and read this horrifying plot synopsis without cursing whatever deity would allow such evil to be let loose upon the world:

“[The movie is about] a mother mourning the death of her young daughter and struggling to overcome the grief that jeopardizes every aspect of her life, including her marriage. She begins to find her way back into the world through a knitting circle and the stories its members share.”

And instead of being confined to movie theaters like the usual Katherine Heigl fare, this will be on HBO, where you or I or any other innocent cable subscriber could happen upon it while flipping through channels! Send your letters with the word “why?” written over and over again to HBO and Katherine Heigl. (Deadline)

The world has been breathlessly awaiting the romantic pair of Halle Berry and Jon Bon Jovi in the upcoming film New Year’s Eve. Unfortunately for the world (and fortunately for Halle Berry, hey-o!), Halle Berry is being replaced by America’s sweetheart Katherine Heigl (maybe she can also star in a parody “Nude Year’s Eve“).

Apparently, Heigl just adopted some poor kid and was looking for a project that wouldn’t require a huge time commitment. New Year’s Eve fits the bill, since as a follow up to Garry Marshall’s surprise hit Valentine’s Day it’s a big ensemble piece. Just a couple pinches of Heigl, as opposed to a whole dish. Dunno why I went with a food metaphor but whatever. New Year’s Eve will also star (deep breath) Robert De Niro, Sofia Vergara, Russell Peters, Hilary Swank, Ice Cube, Ashton Kutcher, Lea Michele, Michelle Pfeiffer, Zac Efron, Josh Duhamel, Sarah Jessica Parker, Abigail Breslin, Seth Meyers, Jessica Biel and Til Schweiger. (via Deadline)

‘Killers’ Trailer Looks Okay Considering Ashton Kutcher & Katherine Heigl Star http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/killers-trailer-looks-okay-considering-ashton-kutcher-katherine-heigl-star/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/killers-trailer-looks-okay-considering-ashton-kutcher-katherine-heigl-star/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 The trailer for Killers follows the beats of any other Katherine Heigl movie trailer. We're introduced to her. We learn quickly that she's successful in every aspect of her life except love. Cue the man of her dreams, in this instance, Ashton Kutcher and his abs. Kutcher stalks Heigl around Nice, France while unnecessarily shirtless like NY's Naked Cowboy or He-Man or Los Angeles's David Hasselhoff. The two hook up and it seems like the perfect relationship. Until it turns into Knight & Day or Mr. and Mrs. Smith. It looks like a fun, light film (centered around murder) despite the positioning of the leads on the National Choad Index. I should dislike this but I don't. It must be the presence of Selleck. Damn that mustache. Maybe enjoy the trailer after the jump....

WHAT CELEBS COULD LEARN FROM HE-MAN http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/what-celebs-could-learn-from-he-man/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/what-celebs-could-learn-from-he-man/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 He-Man and the Masters of the Universe wasn't just an awesome platform to sell toys. It was also a program that delivered good moral values to its young viewers, especially at the end of each episode (not unlike G.I. Joe). Our scientists scoured the 'nets and assembled a collection of some of these lessons taught to us by He-Man and fellow Eternians... and then we thought about all the celebrities that could stand to learn from them. Check out these lessons below. You might just learn something, too.

He-Man and the Masters of the Universe wasn’t just an awesome platform to sell toys. It was also a program that delivered good moral values to its young viewers, especially at the end of each episode (not unlike G.I. Joe).

Our scientists scoured the ‘nets and assembled a collection of some of these lessons taught to us by He-Man and fellow Eternians… and then we thought about all the celebrities that could stand to learn from them.

Check out these lessons below. You might just learn something, too.


LESSON: LOVE YOUR PARENTS

The Lesson: Orko wagers that the love between a parent and a child is the strongest kind of love there is and that nothing can change it. NO MATTER WHAT.

CELEBRITY THAT COULD BENEFIT: MACAULAY CULKIN

Oh, Orko. You are one naive, floppy-hatted simpleton. I don’t know how parents and kids relate to one another in your home dimension of Trolla but here in Hollywood we sue the ever-loving crap out of each other. At the age of fifteen, after his dad/manager spent most of his earnings, Mac Culkin decided that living home alone would be good, son. So he sought emancipation from his parents… and won. After that point, the money he earned from acting would be all his. Yep. Whenever those adult acting opportunities come along. Any minute now….

 

 

LESSON: WORKING WITH OTHERS

The Lesson: If you can put your differences aside, you’ll be able to work with others and maybe learn something along the way.

CELEBRITY THAT COULD BENEFIT: KATHERINE HEIGL

There are numerous stories around town about renowned bee-yatch Heigl being difficult to work with. Heigl famously bad-mouthed Knocked Up, the movie that launched her film career. In addition, she withdrew her name from Emmy consideration because she felt her Grey’s Anatomy character didn’t have any "material that was worthy to submit." She sounds like a bigger bitch than Skeletor. 

 

 

LESSON: DO YOUR BEST

The Lesson: Man-At-Arms teaches us to try our best. As long as we do that we never really fail.

CELEBRITY THAT COULD BENEFIT: BEN STILLER

He’s been sleepwalking through his roles since striking gold with There’s Something About Mary. If you disagree, watch The Ben Stiller Show and compare its awesomeness to Duplex or Along Came Polly or Dodgeball. Most of his movies are flat, flimsy plots wrapped around a dance-off or fat suit dance scene of some sort. His movies are growing interchangeable and he’s quickly becoming the Nicolas Cage of comedy.

 

 

LESSON: LEARN THE RULES

The Lesson: He-Man and Man-At-Arms teach children not to wander too far away when they play. Otherwise they could get in trouble and there would be no one around to help them.

CELEBRITY THAT COULD BENEFIT: MARGOT KIDDER

In April of 1996, Superman actress Margot Kidder’s bipolar disorder led to her becoming delusional. In a bizarro turn of events, Kidder wandered away from her home and was missing for three days before being found by police in a state which was described as "dirty, frightened and paranoid." Could have saved herself a lot of frustration and worry had she only tuned into a child’s cartoon in the 1980′s.

 

 


LESSON: YOU ARE ADOPTED

The Lesson: Teela learns that her adopted parent Man-At-Arms is just as much her father though despite having no biological connection.

CELEBRITY THAT COULD BENEFIT: MICHAEL BAY

The well-known rumor around Hollywood is that Michael Bay is the offspring of legendary director John Frankenheimer. Though there has allegedly been a paternity test that belies this belief, there is still an air of mystery surrounding their possible relation. Bay shares the healthy outlook along with Teela having stated, "I am definitely one who believes that your parents are the ones who raise you." 

 

 


LESSON: DON’T PLAY WITH FIRE

The Lesson: Don’t play with matches. You could damage your home and your loved ones.

CELEBRITY THAT COULD BENEFIT: LISA "LEFT EYE" LOPES

Before tragically passing at a young age, “Left Eye” was famous for burning down the home she shared with Atlanta Falcon’s star Andre Risen. Eager for some tender, love, and care from her then-boyfriend, Lopes grew upset with his all-night partying ways. As revenge she set fire to his sneakers. The fire spread and the entire mansion burned down. This embarrassing event would have never happened if only she had listened to Man-At-Arm’s plea. Then she would only be famous for wearing a condom on her face.

 

 


LESSON: PROTECT THE FOREST

The Lesson: Zodac the Cosmic Enforcer teaches us to take care of the environment before it wastes away to nothing.

CELEBRITY THAT COULD BENEFIT: MILEY CYRUS

Though she would like to view herself as an environmental crusader, Miley Cyrus seems more than a little under-educated on what exactly going green means. Sure she traded in her Porsche for a Prius but what of her private jet? And what about all the merchandise out there stamped with her smiling image? Surely all those mass-produced CDs, DVDs, posters, backpacks, lunchboxes, purses, wallets, make-up kits, wigs, hair brushes, jewelry, shoes, sneakers, swimwear, dolls, doll accessories, playsets, board games, video games, pencils, pens, notebooks, rulers, staplers, cards, diaries, microphones, karaoke sets, bedding, dinner sets, bath products, guitars, amps, stickers, wall decorations, temporary tattoos, party supplies, shampoos, shower gels, toothbrushes, lip balms, and perfumes have to take some kind of toll on the environment.
