Bradley Cooper and American Sniper

What is Casting Couch? It’s a daily movie news column that that wants to make you a star, baby. Filmmaker Cameron Crowe hasn’t said much about his next project. We don’t yet have a title or a plot synopsis for it. But what we do know is that it’s said to be similar in tone to things like Almost Famous and Jerry Maguire, and it’s got Emma Stone playing a lead role (and it might just be a rewrite of his Deep Tiki script from years ago). So basically, expect something that lines up with Crowe’s best work and stars one of your favorite actresses. Sounds great. The new news regarding the project is that Crowe is reportedly close to finding his male lead. Deadline Hollywood says that he has his eye on Bradley Cooper, and he’s close to making a deal happen. Bradley Cooper and Emma Stone in a Cameron Crowe movie? Yeah, that should be enough to get the attention of every person of every gender and sexuality ever. Remember how we reported that Christopher Nolan’s regular DP, Wally Pfister, is going to be directing his first movie, it’s going to be called Transcendence, and it’s going to star Johnny Depp?

As is always the case in situations like this, I couldn’t be happier to be made to look like a fool. Just before the release of her abandoned daughter drama Janie Jones, and fresh off the heels of signing onto a crime pic called The Class Project, Breslin has now agreed to also star in a new teen comedy called A Virgin Mary. Why is this newsworthy? Well in addition to having the talents of a now proven young actress in Abigail Breslin, A Virgin Mary is also a teen comedy that is being described as “a coming of age story in the tradition of Sixteen Candles.” I know that there are a lot of people out there who still have a strong love for the work of John Hughes, and Sixteen Candles in particular, so I view that as a refreshing way to hear a teen comedy touting itself in the current climate of glossy, shallow movies aimed toward teens. Let’s dig down there into the awkwardness of adolescence and wallow, not cast a bunch of beautiful twentysomethings in a movie that puts high school up on some sort of glamorous pedestal. The film has been scripted by Normal […]

Seemingly out of nowhere comes one of the most divisive and twisted comedies since Heathers. In Bobcat Goldthwait’s second directorial effort there is no limit to the darkness and consequently, no limit to the laughs to be had.
