What, again?

Posted by gnn1 on Sunday, 16 September 2007

Jake and Reese seem to be modeling their relationship after Orlando Bloom and Kate Bosworth’s.  They are reportedly on a break from each other again but an insider says it wouldn’t be a shock if they got back together.

Sources tell US Weekly they barely made eye contact at the Toronto Film Festival screening of Rendition, the movie they did together.   Indeed, a photo from the event shows them with phony smiles and Reese’s body is turned slightly away from Jake’s.

JLA Movie casting rumours!

Posted by gnn1 on Saturday, 1 September 2007

Got some casting rumours today from StarPulse. They are sourced to, and I checked out IESB. These are only rumours!!

As any movie fan knows, rumours start flying at a project’s announcement, and don’t conclude til its premiere. So here is a batch for JLA:

  • Martian Manhunter will be part of JLA. Sources indicate Laurence Fishburne is an early favourite.
  • Mel Gibson and Bruce Willis are being looked at for Max Lord and Lex Luthor, respectively (I could easily see Bruce playing Lex…).
  • Ryan Reynolds is listed as playing Flash (this rumour is pretty consistent).
  • Tom Welling’s name was tossed around for the role of Superman but one source says he is a no-go.  Rumour has it Brandon Routh who has been playing Superman will not be in the film.
  • Other names being mentioned include Leonardo DiCaprio, Jake Gyllenhaal, Scarlett Johansson, and either Jessica Alba or Jessica Biel (I’ve seen both names).
  • George Miller is on as director (confirmed from what I’ve seen).

Someone sent IESB a plot summary (very spoiler-heavy from their warning). They claim to have a friend working on the film. Here is the link, in case you want it. I haven’t read it, in case it IS legit (I HATE spoilers!).

Hollywood brings the War home

Posted by gnn1 on Sunday, 19 August 2007

[This post’s sources are linked within the post itself, instead of at the end.  Assume the description of each movie is from the linked source unless otherwise indicated.]

A number of movies centring on the war in Iraq are due out over the next eight months or so, a surprising, possibly risky, move given the war-weary status of the country.

The onslaught of films begins 9 November with Lions of Lambs.  It stars Tom Cruise, Meryl Streep, and Robert Redford, who took double-duty by also directing it.

Lions for Lambs interweaves the stories of two American students who end up in Afghanistan, their idealistic professor, a senator and a journalist. The trailer shows Cruise, who plays the senator, in his office on Capitol Hill shouting at the journalist, Streep: “Do you want to win the war on terror? Yes or no? This is the quintessential yes or no question of our time.”

Next comes Rendition (Reese Witherspoon, Jake Gyllenhaal, Meryl Streep, and Alan Arkin) about a CIA terror suspect who disappears.

his American wife and a CIA analyst find themselves caught up in a struggle to secure his release from a secret detention facility somewhere outside the US.

In The Valley of Elah stars Tommy Lee Jones, Charlize Theron, and Susan Sarandon.  Based on a true story

It is about post-combat stress and is based on a real incident in which a soldier was murdered while on a drinking spree with his comrades on return from Iraq.

There are a lot more-I’m not going to list them all.  The links for all the above except Rendition are the same, and will take you to a good story that talks about more of the films.

Either he thinks Reese is a man, or he thinks Jake is doing her hair

Posted by gnn1 on Sunday, 19 August 2007

Ryan Phillipe, seemingly-bitter ex-hubby of cutie Reese Witherspoon and father of her two kids, Deacon and Ava, said he didn’t want Jake (Gyllenhaal, Reese’s boyfriend) around his kids, then

made some crude Brokeback Mountain remark.

On the off-chance that you lived at the bottom of a pond a couple years ago, Brokeback Mountain was a surprise blockbuster, commonly referred to as a ‘gay cowboy movie’.  Jake and Heath Ledger played two cowboys who fell in love at a time when homosexuality was not accepted.

So I’m guessing that the remark Ryan made was referring to Jake’s sexuality.  If that’s the case, then he either thinks his ex-wife is a male, or Jake is spending an awful lot of time doing her hair!  Because Reese and Jake spend a lot of time together.

Now, Reese has come out and said that she doesn’t allow Jake to spend the night when the kids are there, and frankly, I believe her.

Furthermore, Mr Phillipe has not lived the celibate lifestyle himself.  And I don’t recall him having this objection when Reese and Jake dated before their temporary break.

Methinks someone is a wee bit jealous.

What about Jake?

Posted by gnn1 on Monday, 6 August 2007

Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe have set tongues wagging all around the blogosphere after Page Six. They’ve done lunch, gone jogging, and even gone shoe shopping together. A friend of Reese’s is quoted as saying:

“Reese and Ryan are trying to work it out. They are still close.”

But (of course) Ryan’s rep denies the rumours. Reese’s never got back to reporters.

Now, this comes just days after reports that supposedly Reese and Jake Gyllenhaal are back on. Frankly, I’m inclined to believe she and Ryan are reconciling as friends.

Edited to add:

Saw this on Perez Hilton’s site.  If he says it, I’m inclined to believe it.

Don’t believe the rumors that Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe are getting back together.

“Not so,” a source in the know tells

Gyllen-poon are still fanning the flames of desire!

“Reese and Jake [Gyllenhaal] were at a screening of the Bourne Ultimatum at the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences in Los Angeles on Saturday night,” sources tell us.

And…they even discretely shared some kisses in the darkened theater!
