David Fincher for Nike

October 15, 2008

Nike continues its series of commercials for Nike products. The latest is from David Fincher (who recently stated there will be no Rendezvous With Rama movie — which sucks). It’s pretty damn cool.

David Fincher directs the life-long journey of pro football players LaDainian Tomlinson and Troy Polamalu as their destinies collide in an NFL football game.

Follow the jump if you missed Guy Ritchie’s Nike commercial; also awesome.

Guy Ritchie and Whats-Her-Face to Divorce

October 15, 2008

Guy Ritchie and Madonna are splitting up after eight years of marriage. Which isn’t so bad for Madonna; she’s still in her prime. I mean, she’s what, 87? You go girl! Reports People:

In a front page story, Britain’s The Sun newspaper claimed that the couple will be issuing a statement “imminently” on the demise of their often tempestuous relationship, which has been the subject of much speculation in recent months.

I’ve got an idea for a movie called The Madonna Husband Club. It could star Sean Penn, Dennis Rodman, and Ritchie. They drink White Zinfandel, roll drunks, and do their best Madonna impression.

Jude Law May Play Watson

September 19, 2008

(The title of this post is fun to say out loud).

I thought I may be too hungover tired to give a hoot about anything this morning, but I’m pretty excited about this project. Variety reports that dashing chap Jude Law is in talks to play Watson alongside Robert Downey Jr’s Holmes:

Jude Law is negotiating to join Robert Downey Jr. in “Sherlock Holmes,” the drama that Guy Ritchie will direct for Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow Pictures.

Law is expected to close a deal shortly to play Watson, the super-sleuth’s sidekick.

I think that Ritchie can keep it dirty and bring the grit to Doyle’s stories. That dark London shit he’s about. Downey can do whatever the fuck he wants. And Law? Yeah, yeah I’m down with him. Sure he’s a pretty boy¬† (when I say pretty I mean he could literally charm the pants of a nun) but remember him play as the hitman/perv/sketchball in Road to Perdition? And in Sleuth he played a character playing a character who was sort of like Watson. Now, in the books Watson was an oinker, so I hope he puts on a ton of weight for the role. That would be worth going to see in itself. Case closed.
