'On the Basis of Sex' and 'RBG' Re-Releasing In Theaters

Anne Hathaway In Talks To Star In A Sesame Street Feature Film

THR is reporting Anne Hathaway is circling the starring role in a Sesame Street feature.

Warner Bros. is behind the project that would be directed by Portlandia co-creator Jonathan Krisel, with 21 Laps' Shawn Levy set to produce with Michael Aguilar, and Entertainment 360, the production arm of Management 360.

The movie, which would likely include appearances from Sesame Street residents Big Bird, Oscar the Grouch and Cookie Monster, is said to be a musical. Chris Galletta (Kings of Summer) wrote the most recent draft of the screenplay.

Warners would co-finance the movie with MGM.

While Hathaway is the first choice for the project and has an offer, it is currently unclear if the Oscar winner will accept the role. Sesame Street would reteam her with Warner Bros., the studio that was behind her last release, this summer's Ocean's 8, and MGM, which is behind her upcoming movie, the Dirty Rotten Scoundrels remake The Hustle.

Sex Tape Review: Overly Sexual, Rude, Vulgar, and Absolutely Hilarious

The raunchy Sex Tape will divide audiences and critics, but who cares? Sex Tape suggests a growing practice among loving partners: that of making a raunchy testament of their escapades for posterity. But what happens when that evidence gets seen by friends, neighbors, and even the mailman? This is the plot that pits Jay (Jason Segel) and Annie (Cameron Diaz) in an effort to secure every iPad gift Jay has given, his record company playlists being the envy of the recipients, but which has also inadvertently spread the video to every device. The reason for the act - termed in the movie as pulling "the full Lincoln" for its three-hour length - stems from the couple's non-existent social life, brought on by the constant demands of their children. The couple has a lot to lose: a burgeoning business relationship between Annie and Hank (Rob Lowe) could end if the iPad she's given to Hank exposes the video, and so the couple sets out to reclaim and wipe the incriminating …

Under the Skin Scarlett Johansson

Scarlett Johansson To Play A Sexy Alien
Scarlett Johansson as the perfect woman? A perfect alien woman?

That is what FilmNation is selling at AFM, launching Under the Skin, a sci-fi drama from Sexy Beast writer-director Jonathan Glazer.

“Johansson plays an alien on earth, disguised as the perfect aesthetic form of a mesmerizing woman. She scours remote highways and desolate scenery looking to use her greatest weapon to snare human prey -- her voracious sexuality.”
But, wait, there’s more. “She is deadly efficient, but over time becomes drawn to and changed by the complexity of life on earth. With this new found humanity and weakening alien resolve, she finds herself on a collision course with her own kind. Taking her point of view throughout, the film presents a unique look at our world through alien eyes.”

Glazer co-wrote the script with Walter Campbell and is eying a production late spring 2011.

In a statement, FilmNation CEO Glen Basner said, “We’re so very excited to be working on t…
