So, Shia LaBeouf’s really, really dedicated to this serious actor business. And not much marks you as more serious than getting all nekked for a European auteur. Sure, the kid from Holes already notoriously did full frontal in a Sigur Ros music video of all things, but Lars Von Trier’s Nymphomaniac will be a whole different level. We’ve already touched on the film that will recount “the erotic life of a woman from the age of zero to the age of 50” and how there will be both two versions shot- R and Hardcore. According to LaBeouf, the script has a disclaimer stating all of the sex will be real, with anything “illegal” shot in blurred images. I guess good luck with that, Shia.
So, how many takes will Von Trier need to make two movies?
Speaking of things nobody wants to see, they’re turning Alf into a CGI/live-action film from the producer behind Smurfs…
Which, I might have been able to get behind if Von Trier was directing
Okay, this is more like it. Justin Theroux (aka Mr. Jennifer Aniston, if you’re wondering where you heard the name) will segue from writing comedies like Tropic Thunder to directing them, and he’ll have the tender, experienced hands of Will Ferrell and Steve Carell to help him out. Ferrell will play an egotistical hedge fund bigwig who becomes convinced he saw God. Like I’ve mentioned, Ferrell = my money, for better or worse.
And they made the right call with casting this time around…
