I'm Beginning to Worry About "Sesame Street's" Standards

  • The Hollywood Cog is reporting that Emily Blunt is attached to Engagement Games (formerly Wedding Games), a comedy about three sisters who get engaged at once and will stop at nothing to get their mother's wedding ring. The dad settles the dispute with a game of "Family Olympics." Columbia is developing the movie, based on a script from Rachel Specter and Audrey Wauchope.

  • So the one question I had remaining about the Joaquin Phoenix I'm Still Here hoax has been answered: Letterman did know it was a put on, and he enjoyed the hell out of playing along. (THR)

  • The Master, Paul Thomas Anderson's religious drama (read: Scientology drama) that was meant to star Jeremy Renner and Phillip Seymour Hoffman is now postponed indefinitely, as apparently Mr. Anderson couldn't get his shit together. Although, "postponed indefinitely," might have just been Jeremy Renner's euphemish for, "Dude's a giant prick, and no one wants to work with him." (The Playlist)

  • Speaking of Jeremy Renner, he's now attached to Better Living Through Chemistry, a thriller with Jennifer Garner about a "small-town pharmacist (Renner) who is stuck in a loveless marriage and rediscovers himself through an affair with a trophy wife (Garner) who introduces him to the pleasures of prescription drugs." (THR)

  • And speaking of Jennifer Garner, she's also attached to The Odd Life of Timothy Green, about the relationship between a child-prodigy musician and his parents. Mark Wahlberg is apparently in the running to play the father role. (Vulture)

  • And speaking of Mark Wahlberg, he's attached to a remake of Reykjavik-Rotterdam, now titled Contraband, along with Kate Beckinsale. It's about a security guard and former alcohol smuggler on the Iceland-Netherlands route who is tempted back into illicit business by a dubious friend after encountering financial problems. (Latino Review)

  • Jon Hamm is now set to host "SNL" for the 3rd time this October 30th.

  • According to the National Bureau of Economic Research, the recession ended in June 2009. I just thought that the ten percent of America's workforce out of a job would like to know that. (Reuters)

  • Christopher Campbell has an interesting think piece up about how Boston is depicted in films like The Town and The Departed, noting that much of the seedy, crime-ridden areas being filmed are actually pretty gentrified. I think that's mostly true. Except for Southie. Aesthetically a beautiful neighborhood, it's still pretty rough. (Spout Blog)

  • Justin Bieber says he's working with Will Smith on a "top secret" film project. So secret, in fact, that I doubt Will Smith even knows about it. (News in Film via Teen Vogue)

  • I would not normally link to AICN, but TylerDFC found a very worthy interview over there with Drew Struzan, who created the movie posters for Indy, Star Wars, and Back to the Future. Credit where credit is due. (AICN)

  • And, for those of you who hate the shaky cam, or who get motion sick watching shaky-cam movies, Ranylt espied this helpful new site that tracks the degree of shaky-cam to smooth-cam of new releases. (Drunkencam)

  • Here's Katy Perry's terribly inappropriate appearance on "Sesame Street." Jesus, lady. Cover up. And auto-tune on "Sesame Street"? What's happened to PBS's standards?
