Coming Soon (maybe)

All the news that's fit to take a slight interest in.

Sex and Sylvia Plath

The buzzed script from newbie writer Jennifer O'Kieffe has been picked up by WAM films. The story is based on a 16 year old teenager who obsesses on death and shares a lover with her mother. Sounds like a laugh riot to me. It's got good pedigree, though - nominated for the Sanuel Goldwyn award and on last years Black List of unproduced screenplays.

Untitled Nancy Meyers Flick

Yes Nancy Meyers is responsible for formulaic romantic comedies like The Holiday and Something's Gotta Give but it has to be said she can get decent performances from the genre. Her latest, currently plotless, has Meryl Streep and Alec Baldwin signing on so it might be worth a gander.

Serious Man

The Coen brother's have decided on their next project. A Serious Man has beaten back Surbicon and Hail Ceasar (honestly the one I'm more interested in based on the imdb synopsis). It's about a man who's life is falling apart around him when his wife leaves and his brother doesn't. It's too soon to tell if it's No Country or Burn After Reading type Coen.
