6 Things You Need to Know Today If You Ever Expect to Impress Joey Potter

By Dustin Rowles | Trade News | August 7, 2012 | Comments ()


  • Jennifer Lawrence -- who is currently negotiating a raise to $10 million for Catching Fire -- is also in talks to star in The Ends of the Earth, an "epic" love story based on the real Lydie Marland, whose oil tycoon of an adopted father risked everything to have an affair with her. How very Woody Allen of him.

  • Meanwhile, according to Movieline, Terry Crews is working with Mike Judge to bring back his beloved Idiocracy character, President Dwayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Herbert Camacho. For now, they're only working on a web presence, but if it takes off, a Idiocracy spin-off could flow from it.

  • I'm already bored with the potential Daredevil reboot, but for the record, Fox is still trying to make it happen with Joe Carnahan (The A-Team) on board to direct. However, filming has to begin by October, lest the rights revert back to Marvel. There's also word, according to Deadline, of a potential swap between Fox and Marvel, in which Fox would give up rights to Galactus and the Silver Surfer in exchange for more time to reboot Daredevil. Whatever, y'all. It's still a BLIND SUPERHERO (via Slashfilm).

  • Oh, hey! That Robocop remake we're all kind of excited about because the cast includes Joel Kinnamon (as Robocop), Hugh Laurie (as the villain), Jackie Earle Haley, Jay Barachel, Sam Jackson, and Gary Oldman is now in talks to add Michael K. Williams. Please say your favorite Omar Little line in your head to celebrate this occasion.

  • Oh, and no big deal, but ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT: THE MOVIE starts filming today.

    The Arrested Development backlash begins ... now.

  • Omar in Robocop? The Arrested Development movie kicking off? Those aren't even my favorite news stories of the day. This one is: TV Guide is reporting that Busy Phillips will appear as herself in the season premiere of Don't Trust the B---- in Apt. 23, as James Van Der Beek -- who also plays himself in the show -- attempts to put together a Dawson's Creek reunion. You know, Joshua Jackson (R.I.P.) will be up for it, as will the other guy that no one cares about. Michelle Williams is dating Jason Segel, which suggests she has a sense of humor, so that's also a possibility. Kate Holmes? Come on, lady: It's the perfect follow-up to ditching Tom Cruise. Come get your ovation. Let's make this happen. The world needs this.

      Robocop and Omar on the same team? Sorry criminals.

    • Fred

      I am ridiculously excited at the possible prospect of a Dawson's Creek reunion. I'm just going to sit in the corner in embarrassment now.

    • Snath

      Wait WHAT. They're actually doing the AD movie? OMGWTFBBQSPLOSION

    • psemophile

      "The Ends of the Earth" had a magnificent screenplay.
      You've got an incestuous couple... AND YOU SYMPATHIZE WITH THEM.
      I think it deserves an Oscar for that alone.

    • Carrie/Teabelly

      I'm currently watching season 3 of Dawson's Creek again. I'm not (too) ashamed to admit it. It's the Pacey loves Joey season, people! I cannot resist. The whole 'I remember everything' bit, he bought her a wall and they sail off on a boat called True Love! It's too much.

      Oh, yeah, I met Joshua Jackson once and got his autograph. I almost died. That reaction I am embarrassed about.

    • Sofia

      All of the Pacey/Joey storylines are on youtube. Sigh.

    • Carrie/Teabelly

      Ok, I accidentally disliked your comment attempting to reply. I hopefully undid it...

      Anyway, it's probably good I hadn't thought to look on YouTube for those before now. I think I could easily get trapped in a perpetual loop of their relationship.

    • JoannaRobinson

      Unnnhhhhhhhh the anti-prom Prom episode. MY TEENAGED HEART.

    • Carrie/Teabelly

      I have taped it. Or whatever today's equivalent of recording something on the telly is. 'Taped' works for me.

      Also it's great cos this way you can fast fwd through all the boring Jen and Moon Faced Henry bits.

    • JoannaRobinson

      But it's Michael Pitt! He of the pillow lips!!

    • Carrie/Teabelly

      I know, but he's just so blah in that role. That whole storyline was pointless. 'I will relentlessly pursue you and break down all your defenses and make you trust again, and then break up with you, probably cos I met some other girl'. (The 'probably' cos I can't remember.

      Not that I'm invested in this show still.

    • Jezzer

      Eh, I'm over bagging on "Arrested Development." With "Community," "Girls," and "The Newsroom," I have far too much mocking on my plate as it is.

    • Other Brian

      Arrested Development "backlash"? Why? Am I missing something? Is this suddenly a bad idea now or something? Why instigate something like that? Why?

    • Seth Rogen was also in an episode of Dawson's Creek, he can join in as well!

    • Muhnah_Muhnah

      What's wrong with a blind superhero? As long as it's not Ben Affleck, I don't see why not. Also...it can't possibly be worse than the previous one.

      Yay, Omar! I wish he'd play Omar in everything. Rom Coms, Harry Potter movies, The Avengers, everything would be better with Omar in them.

    • InternetMagpie

      Last night I had a dream that Joshua Jackson came to my door and I called him Pacey. It was mortifying, but he of course simply shrugged it off and was wonderful. As he ALWAYS is in my dreams.

      More clothes this time, though.
