Round Up

Terry Gilliam

Terry Gilliam is to make the incredibly insane decision to relaunch his Don Quixote project.

Wahlberg and Franco Joining Date Night

The cast for Date Night, the upcoming comedy directed by Shawn Levy, is starting to look mighty tasty.

In addition to the marvellous Steve Carell and Tina Fey, not to mention Gossip Girl’s Leighton Meester, Tajari Henson and Kristen Wiig, we now also have both Mark Wahlberg and James Franco coming aboard.

I’ve found Mark Wahlberg an unintentionally hilarious figure in the past so, I’ve got to imagine, some more comedy may well work for his oeuvre.

Add to that the chops brought by James Franco, put to full use during the Pineapple Express ride, and you’ve got a recipe for comedy gold.

The film will see Carell and Fey play a married couple whose regular date night takes a turn for the misadventurous. ComingSoon.net quotes Variety saying that wahlberg will play a “successful and crazily buff securities expert who flirts” with Fey. Franco is apparently playing a somewhat foolish con man and criminal.
