Richard Curtis and Stephen Daldry are teaming up for a project that doesn’t involve Hugh Grant.  The duo are teaming up for Andy Mulligan’s Trash.

The story follows three extremely poor, uneducated boys who make a living by picking through garbage. One day they find a very rare item that the police are eager to get their hands on. From that point on, the boys have to run for their lives and solve the mystery that will set right a terrible wrong.

Curtis is most well-known for writing Love Actually and Four Weddings And A Funeral, and Daldry has directed The Hours and Billy Elliot. I’m not sure where Hugh Grant would work in this story but you’d think that Curtis would want to work in his comfort zone. Maybe they’ll figure out a cameo for him like Marvel does with Stan Lee. (Variety)

Whiz Kid From ‘Jeopardy’ Is Extremely Loud And Incredibly Close http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/whiz-kid-from-jeopardy-is-extremely-loud-and-incredibly-close/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/whiz-kid-from-jeopardy-is-extremely-loud-and-incredibly-close/#comments Wed, 15 Dec 2010 16:57:45 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=12502 What is a lucky break, Alex? A 12-year old winning on "Jeopardy!" and parlaying that into a movie role opposite Tom Hanks and Sandra Bullock.

What is a luck break, Alex? 12-year old Thomas Horn made headlines after winning $31,000 on “Jeopardy!” Not only did he get to make small talk with Alex Trebek, but that appearance has now lead to his casting in Extremely Loud And Incredibly Close. He’ll join the Tom Hanks/Sandra Bullock drama as a young boy who loses his father in the World Trade Center collapse on September 11th, 2001. He finds a key in his father’s belongings and sets forth to discover what it unlocks. Oh God, please don’t let it be a gun.

Good for Horn, though. It’s got to feel pretty good at any age to have such a whirlwind life. To think, one minute you’re winning on “Jeopardy!,” the next you have a successful film career. Sorry, “Weird” Al. (Deadline)
