Hello, folks! And welcome once again to the fastest growing quiz sensation on the Interspace: Pajiba’s Two Truths and a Lie! Today’s edition is brought to you by Heineken! The only beer that Brad Pitt would brave the paparazzi for!

Before we get to today’s edition, let’s first take a look back at our last game of Two Truths and a Lie, where 46 percent of you correctly guess that a movie based on the Click and Clack brothers was not, in fact, an actual project in development (you just wait). That means, of course, that Bryan Singer is, in fact, working on an Excalibur remake and, if the rumors are true, Mila Kunis and Natalie Portman will be having “ecstasy-induced hungry aggressive angry sex” with one another in Darren Aronovsky’s Black Swan.

Moving on to this week’s game, it’s a doozy, folks. A real goddamn humdinger. Best of luck. Here we go: I’ll give you three projects, and you tell me which is the lie.

A) General Mills, in conjunction with Paramount Pictures, is developing a sports movies inspired by its Wheaties breakfast cereal. Gregory Allen Howard (Remember the Titans) has been hired to write a script that will focus on a superstar athlete as he aims to get his face on the cover of a Wheaties box. GM is hoping to enroll its stable of athlete sponsors, which include Peyton Manning, Kevin Garnett, and Albert Pujols, to provide cameos.

B) MTV is getting into the horror genre. They have begun efforts in a slasher film inspired by their reality show, “My Super Sweet 16.” My Super Psycho Sweet 16 will be about a privileged teen’s birthday bash at a roller rink that is interrupted by a serial killer.

C) Malcolm Spellman, who wrote the script for Dead Presidents, has been hired to pen a new screenplay for a film based on “Soul Train,” the classic television show that ran from 1971 to 2006. Don Cornelius will produce. The film is expected to be set in the 1980s.
