In an interview with MTV, Tom Selleck basically confirmed that a sequel to Three Men and a Baby is in the works. He said:
“It is true that Disney checked my availability,” he said, confirmed [Steve] Guttenberg’s comments from late last year. “And I know they checked Ted’s and Steve’s, and then had a script written, I think tentatively called ‘Three Men and a Bride,’ which kind of says it all [about the story].”
It doesn’t quite say it all. It should probably also mention that it’s bound to be terrible. (MTV)
James Sclafani, the writer behind W, is now trying to put together a movie about Rush Limbaugh called The Rush Limbaugh Story: Talent on Loan from God that would uncover a lot of Limbaugh’s contradictions and hopefully reveal him for the fat-headed assclown that he is. I would totally see that. (Note, also, that that was my first ever usage of the word assclown. I don’t really like the way writing it makes me feel. I won’t use it again). (Deadline)
Here’s the 5th Tron banner. This movie doesn’t come out until the winter. You’re so going to be sick of it by then. Although, really, how much interest is there in this movie? I know the hard-cores are dickety as anything about it, but the average moviegoer? Do they care about a sequel to a 30-year-old cult film? (Source: HeyUGuys)
With the next Bond film on indefinite hold, until MGM figures out their shit, Sam Mendes is moving on. It looks like his next project will be an adaptation of Ian McEwan’s On Chesil Beach, and Carey Mulligan may star, according to Deadline. The novel, set in 1960s UK, revolves around two repressed virgins in their early 20s whose futile attempt at lovemaking leads to doubt and recriminations.
In the I just thought I’d share department: I saw this headline on HuffPost today, and I thought: This is one exclamation point away from being extremely classless.

Development of the Midnight Run sequel is heating up again, and now, Charles Grodin is being courted to return. Grodin, who retired from acting in 1993, is considering it, but also feels that he has other, better things to do than to stand around on a movie set. Ideally, he’ll turn it down, and development will sputter. (Deadline)

Look! Gwyneth Paltrow makes Mexican food in her latest Gloop post. I don’t really see any reason to hate her from this. She’s so remarkably charming and self-effacing.
No. I’m kidding. I see it now. She’s fucking obnoxious. She said “delish,” “schmear,” “donesville,” “yum yum” unironically, and failed to pronounce the x in Mexico. That’s enough, in my book, to warrant death by house fire.
