We’ve all been eagerly anticipating the next directorial effort of Dayton and Faris, and it now it appears the duo has finally settled on a project. It only took bestie and Little Miss Sunshine sta Paul Dano to get them there. The husband and wife team will direct Dano in He Loves Me, which is written by, and will co-star, Dano’s real-life girlfriend, Zoe Kazan. Awwww, look at all of these lovebirds finding a way to work together. Dinners at night must be filled with deafening silence.

He Loves Me is the story of a young novelist who writes about his dream girl and manages to draw her out of his imagination and into the real world. I’d normally make an A-Ha “Take On Me” joke here, but those sly bastards over at Vulture already swooped in an took it. If this film is even half as cool as that music video we’re all in for a ridiculously campy time.

Sandra Bullock and Steve Carell Holding Out for ‘The Abstinence Teacher’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/sandra-bullock-and-steve-carell-holding-out-for-the-abstinence-teacher/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/sandra-bullock-and-steve-carell-holding-out-for-the-abstinence-teacher/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Five years after striking indie cinema gold with Little Miss Sunshine, Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris look like they'll finally step behind the camera again. The duo have been attempting to bring Tom Perrotta's novel "The Abstinence Teacher" to screens since 2006 but, after multiple setbacks, it was believed the project was dead. Production Weekly has reported the project is back from the grave with the news that Sandra Bullock and Steve Carell are attached to star. Bullock will play the sex-ed teacher at odds with conservative community members, and Carell will play the born-again soccer coach she finds herself falling for. I'm not sure what wacky circumstance will cause them to pretend to be married, but this is a Sandra Bullock movie. It's bound to be a plot-point.
