Biz Break: Miley Cyrus Insists That You Know She Has Cleavage

By Dustin Rowles | Trade News | September 25, 2012 | Comments ()


Steven Spielberg's Robocopalypse has been in development for so long now that it was an entry in my Most Anticipated Movies of 2013 and Most Anticipated Movies of 2014. After spinning its wheels for quite some time, it's finally gained some momentum after casting Chris Hemsworth as the lead in the Drew Goddard scripted film that centers on the fate of the human race following a robot uprising. Now, Anne Hathaway has signed on, and April 2014 is still the tentative release date. I like the casting, particularly now that we're all on the same page regarding Hathaway.


It's been in the works for a while now (in fact, I dream-casted the series a few months ago), but now it's official: FX has ordered scripts for a series based on the Coen Brothers' Fargo, although there no cast announcements have been made yet. I'd still love to see Carla Gugino in the lead.


In other news, Len Wiseman -- who tanked the Die Hard franchise, who made a less than mediocre Total Recall remake, and who is the engineer behind making one of the most succesful film franchises without even (fucking) trying has now been hired to reboot the Mummy franchise. His wife, Kate Beckinsale, will undoubtedly land the Rachel Weitz role.

Meanwhile, because everyone else is doing it, Baz Lurhmann is now getting into the TeeVee biz, signing with Sony to develops shows for cable and broadcast. They'll be like Glee, only classy.

The once incredibly sought-after Ruben Fleischer, who frittered away his Zombieland capital on the lackluster 30 Minutes or Less, has fallen so far now that he's signed on to produce and direct Spy Hunter, a movie based on that Atari game the old people among you used to play when you were kids. That's just plain dumb.

Miley Cyrus is going to be on an episode of Two and a Half Men. The way the Emmys are going lately, she may also win an award for best guest star.


Well, at least it's better than Lindsay Lohan and Charlie Sheen's appearance in Scary Movie 5.


Finally, like some other directors -- Rob Reiner, Francis Ford Coppola, Ivan Reitman -- who just woke up one day and totally lost it, Amy Heckerling (Clueless, Fast Times at Ridgemont High) is still giving it the old college try. Her latest movie, I Can Never Be Your Woman went straight-to-DVD despite starring Paul Rudd, and now she's trying to conjure some of that Clueless chemistry with Alicia Silverstone in Vamps, which will also essentially go straight-to-DVD despite the presence of Justin Kirk, Sigourney Weaver, and Krysten Ritter.

Here's the trailer. It's basically Clueless meets Van Helsing meets a train wreck.

Wow. That doesn't work at all. That is painful.

Finally (Part 2) Jay Baruchel has confirmed that he's penning a sequel to Goon, the hockey movie starring Baruchel, Alison Pill, and Sean William Scott that we've all been going gaga about all year long. It's fantastic, a legitimate Pajiba cult classic, and you should all see it.

    All this post reminds me of is how awesome and under appreciated Brendan Frasier was. They only hot action hero with a sense of humor about himself. Ugg, and do you remember him as 'Ben' on Scrubs? Where did he go.....

  • kirbyjay

    I loved Clueless Ah-lee-cee-ah Silverstone but this new and rather birdlike edition literally churns my stomach when I think of her poor kid eating her remasticated food. I think the authorities should be notified and she should be spurned from Pajiba. (along with Amy Farraf Fowler, who I love, but still breastfeeds a toddler with teeth)
    Who's with me?

  • Brown

    After Zombieland came out, they talked about how many ideas they had and could easily kick out a sequel. Those ideas had to have really sucked if the dude is already doing a Spy Hunter movie.

  • googergieger

    Wait, what? Two and a Half Men is a T.V. show? Then what in the hell is the name of Miami's basketball team?!

  • Belkwinith

    After watching Goon, I am overwhelmed with a great longing to punch everyone right in their pasty meat bag faces. Ah, if only my spindly fingers would not crack like so many breadsticks.

  • Nooooo! Leave The Mummy alone! It's just so much *fun*, back when Brendan Frasier had hair. I love that movie. Suck it, haters.

  • $27019454

    We're not all on the same page regarding Anne Hathaway. I'm still out here, floating in the air, OFF the page. She bugs and she will always bug and I will (I predict) be the only one who hates Les Miserable because I hate the trailer and I realize at this point I am a pariah, what with my Poehler/Arnett indifference/confusion, but I will go down with this ship...the S.S. Anne Hathaway Sucks Like a Big Sucking Black Hole Of Yuck. So. Bon voyage.

    I'll show myself out.

  • L.O.V.E.

    "Finally (Part 2) Jay Baruchel has confirmed that he’s penning a sequel to Goon, the hockey movie starring Baruchel, Alison Pill ..."

    In related news, Alison Pill recently confirmed what Jay Baruchel has been peening.

  • Drake

    that is a GREAT typo

  • bleujayone

    It's funny, they already tried to develop Fargo into a television series. In 1997, a pilot was filmed for a television series based on the film. The pilot was shot in Edmonton sitting in for Brainerd MN. It starred a pre-Sopranos Edie Falco as Marge Gunderson, and was directed by Kathy Bates. Obviously, it didn't get picked up. A lot of the charm of the movie was with Frances McDormand portrayal of Marge, not to mention the involvement of the Coens and their regular crew or which none were now involved. I'm sure you can find bits of the pilot on the web, but I'll spare you the bother- it wasn't worth it. Some things are better off as the one-shot deal they were.

  • BWeaves

    I don't know. I thought Vamps looked fun.

  • Idle Primate

    lots of fun

  • Matthew Crawley!!

  • Agreed. I will watch that movie. I love Krysten Ritter.

  • Ditto. I thought it looked camptacular.

  • space_oddity

    And hasn't there already been a Spy Hunter movie? With The Rock or someone? Or am I just imagining that?

    edit: nevermind. I read the linked article, and apparently I was imagining a movie that was going to be made but (thankfully?) never was.

  • Blake

    Yep, the Rock was originally signed and John Woo was set to direct (WTF!).

    Haven't we already seen this idea done?

    Example: The Driver BMW series & The Transporter series

  • space_oddity

    "has now been hired to reboot the Mummy franchise." I understand the meaning of the individual words, but I still do not understand.

  • Fabius_Maximus

    Me neither. The Mummy already is a brain-dead movie (and still one of my favorites), so how is he going to make it even more brain-dead? That doesn't compute.

  • Natallica

    Add the fact the meaning of those words imply Len Wiseman still has a job, and there you go. Boom headshot!

  • athena23

    I was afraid it was just me.

  • TherecanbeonlyoneAdmin

    The fact of the matter is that Miley is probably the most talented person in the cast of that show that I will not mention here. Regardless of what the Emmy's would have you believe.

  • Miley's Virus

    I think in order it goes Miley's boobs, then Miley, and then the rest of the cast tied for third/last....I am, however, a little biased

  • Why are we still talking about this. Let's pretend it doesn't exist, never happened and that our collective willpower will protect us from its evil. [Again, does that make me a Republican?]

  • kushiro -

    I was going to object, but then I checked and found out Melanie Lynskey is no longer on the show. Carry on.

  • I saw Melanie Lynskey and her husband at Target in Baton Rouge on a random Saturday. She was in jogging shorts and an enormous tee. I told her I loved her work, she said thanks and offered to take a picture with me. I thought that was really sweet of her.

  • Snath

    I...I think I agree with you. And now I want to shoot myself in the face for admitting that Miley Cyrus is the least of all the evils on that show.

  • kirbyjay

    I usually liked whiskey soaked voices on women but this little T and Aer probably swallowed Drano just for the attention.
    What is it about some celebrities (or actual people) that just gets your undies in a bunch? I know why I hate Aaron Carter. Because he wasted about $150 of my hard-earned dollars and cost me 2 hours of my life when I had to bring one of the little Kirbyjays ( when she was little) and her tweenie galpals to see the fraud.AND I had to listen to his no-talent noise without benefit of alcohol. That's why I hate Aaron Carter and I'm glad he is a drug addict now.
    But why hate Miley Cyrus? She's never forced me to listen, watch, feel, or smell her. Is it because she is a super rich, no talent, narcissist? Is it because she got a leg up in the biz because her Achy Breaky Daddy had one novelty hit? Is it because she is now leading with her boobs and twat and doubtfully has a brain in her parakeet head? Is it because she thinks she can sing and act? Is it because I hate it when child stars grow up to be douchebags? Is it because she is a stupid teenager who actually thinks she knows all about love and life with no love or life experience?
    I just don't know....

  • TherecanbeonlyoneAdmin

    At least until they have Honey Boo Boo guest star. And they will.

  • athena23

    That would be December 21 of this year, correct?

  • Snath


  • Miley Cyrus Insists That You Know She Has Cleavage
    And I, for one, am grateful for her insistence.

  • Zinger

    She needs to do something to distract peoples eye's from what going on from her neck up...

  • randomhookup

    But we are really curious to know if she has nipples.

  • I must concur. (Awaits patiently.)
