Movie News - Bridget Jones, Hugh Jackman Is An Avon Man & More


I like when a lot of movie news comes out in one day. Usually the blurbs are so small that it is tough to make one post of something. Today though, there is plenty to talk about.

For those of you who love the Bridget Jones movies, there is some good news. Renee Zellweger will be eating again. A third installment of the movie is set to begin filming late next year. Apparently the story will focus on Bridget's attempts to have a baby before time runs out. There isn't any word on whether Hugh Grant or Colin Firth will also be back for the movie.

Hugh Jackman is going to star in a movie called Avon Man. The story is not surprisingly about a guy who starts selling Avon. Hugh is forced into the occupation after he loses his job at a car dealership. Even more surprising is that he is very good at selling the makeup.

Finally, just when you thought David Arquette would never get another movie, along comes Scream 4. While sitting in his plastic box yesterday, David told E! that another installment would start filming soon.

"I fell in love with my wife on Scream, so the opportunity to bring [Dewey] back to life and for my wife to play that really bitchy character again, it's just going to be really fun," Arquette said. "It's just great."

David says that he really wants Neve Campbell to return, but Neve has previously gone on record saying she won't do another sequel to the movie. My guess is that she will inevitably say yes. I mean it is a job and money and will probably do better than most of the things she is involved with now.

Gee how much longer can they milk the Scream series? Will Neve does need a paycheck so she will definitely come back.

As for HJ as a man selling Avon, if anyone HE would definitely know a thing or two about makeup and all things effeminate

it's bad enough that there are 3 scream movies out there in the world,let alone adding a 4th.

brutal.

Hugh Jackman in the Avon movie sounds pretty interesting.

I dunno, I'd probably buy anything Hugh Jackman was selling.

it will be nice to see Rene Z again, usually you only have a 50% chance of catching her cause she might turn sideways and Whoops, she's gone.

AVON MAN...FUNNY THERE WAS JUST AN ARTICLE IN NEW YORK MAGAZINE ABOUT A GUY WHO SELLS TUPPERWARE DRESSED IN DRAG....HE SAID HE MAKE MORE MONEY DOING THAT, THAN AT HIS DAY JOB....

My uncle worked for Avon, then Mary Kay, then the competitor that became a movie with Parker Posey ... wth was it called - Beautiful International or something? He was management, but he had to learn how to sell the product which wasn't hard for him. If he sold makeup to you, believe me, you'd buy tons.

Like how David got to throw in the comment about the bitchy character. It's the only safe way he can call his wife a bitch. He probably felt relief. Yeah, Neve needs the money because another ballerina movie just won't cut it. zzzzzz.

"Renee Zellweger will be eating again."

You crack me up, Enty!

I don't wear makeup, but if an Avon lady who looked like Hugh Jackman came ding-donging at my door, I'd buy it.

I liked the first Bridget Jones, but had no real desire to see the second one. I liked the end of the first one. Maybe I just don't care for sequels. I saw the first Scream, and enough was enough already. I caught the end of one of them on tv recently, where the killer turned out to be Jackie from Roseanne. I was glad not to have invested more than 15 minutes of my life on that.

Frankly, Hugh Jackman could sell me used newspaper and I'd buy it.

Bridget Jones' Diary was great.

BJ: The Edge of Reason sucked ass.

I'll skip #3.

Hum .. if this "Bridget Jones" thing goes through .. prepare for a bad ending. In the column, Helen Fielding had Bridget end up with Daniel and it's his bastard spawn she has. And I only have two words for that outcome ... Ick. Nast.

If Colin Firth isn't in Bridget Jones, I'm not seeing it!!!!

My sister-in-law's father, who was a drill sergeant in the military, sold Avon after he retired. He was VERY successful because the female customers knew they could count on a man's opinion as to what looked good and smelled good on a woman.

Wow! If Hugh came to my house to sell me Avon he might not get out the door again.

This will be the third time Renee Z has done the gorge trick for Briget Jones.

She gorges to gain and then magically goes dramatically thin again.

Does she not ever read any health books?
this has got to pay a price on the body.
Stuuuupid

If Colin Firth isn't in it, as far as I'm concerned it doesn't exist.

Well that's sure going to help Hugh out with the gay rumors...

I'm kind of excited about Scream 4. I LOVE the horror genre, and I want to see it headed back towards the funny/scary and away from torture porn.
