Pimpa Must Have Pimped Someone--Grease Country Getting Closer


Forget what you are hearing or reading as the case may be today about Jessica Simpson and a Pretty Woman remake. It isn't going to happen. EVER. The film still does incredibly well in DVD sales and no one wants that cash cow to be interrupted or sidetracked by some Jessica Simpson fiasco. No matter how much Pimpa might want his daughter to portray a hooker, it isn't going to happen.

However, the studios are willing to destroy another movie, so who the hell knows what any of them are thinking. The Grease Country project has cleared some more development hurdles and is almost a sure thing at this point. Producers are confident that despite the straight to DVD acting abilities of Jessica Simpson that in a musical, she will do very well and that people will not be as focused on her acting, but instead on her singing ability. With a strong cast surrounding her, and the recent success of the High School Musical franchise, producers want to begin filming as soon as possible.

There is still no one attached to the project other than Jessica, and Willie Nelson as the Frankie Valli character, but with the additional financing that was secured, some new songs for the film and a desire to get the project done, casting is supposed to begin in earnest.

From what I understand, Jessica would be the fish out of water character and moves to a small southern town from the big city, and hooks up with Danny there. Locations are currently being scouted in North Carolina and Tennessee for the film.

Do I have to start therapy now, or do I wait till production?

I hope Willie is supplying the herb required to actually watch this movie.

that's one stupid ass idea. but can anyone else see her doing the Dallas movie? the niece, secretary, waitress at the club, or any random bimbo with 2 lines. i can see it.

All I ask is that Owen Wilson does not go anywhere near this catastrophe. At least Willie Nelson has an excuse - it's harder for an old guy to get easy pussy.

Ent's label of "really bad ideas" says it all.

Any movie with Jessica Simpson will be a disaster.

Wonder if FEMA will cover this disaster hahaha.

So, did I read that right? Jessica is the only one who isn't a rube?

Freaking waste of celluloid and production. I can see this one rotting away in the bottom of those huge bins at Wal mart. People in Hollywood need to be slapped into reality. No one, with the exception of her family, wants to see Bucky Beaverteeth in a movie.

Really Bad Idea Indeed.

You're right audieh_1, this one's headed for Walmart Bins before it even gets to production.

Sigh...what's Poppa Joe doing, and to whom, to keep getting this shit approved?

Maybe she'll suprise everyone, who knows, good luck to her, at least she tries. I know she loves media attention but I feel sorry for her, she always seems lost to me, she gets such a hard time on all the entertainment sites. There are worse out there - it's not like she's showing her front botty at every opportunity:)
