Sure Shots: Engagement Games; Alexis Bledel; Clint Eastwood


* You thought Bride Wars sucked? Well, prepare for Engagement Games. Emily Blunt(The Wolfman) is attached to star as one of three sisters who all get engaged at the same time, and of course they must go to any length to outdo eachother. My brain hurts just thinking about it and how far the feminist movement will be set back after this.

* Rory? As an assassin? My sweet little Rory Gilmore?She can smoke me anytime. Hm, that probably reads really bad. Alexis Bledel is set to star alongside Saoirse Ronan(Atonement) in Violet & Daisy, a teen action-comedy about two young assassins caught in a complicated assignment. James Gandolfini stars as well, possibly with Danny Trejo in an undisclosed role. The film marks the directorial debut of Geoffrey Fletcher(Precious).

* Dustin Lance Black(Milk) has confirmed that shooting on Clint Eastwood's J. Edgar Hoover biopic will begin early next year. That might explain the sudden burst of news on the anticipated film, with us learning just yesterday that Eastwood is hoping to reel in Joaquin Phoenix for a major role opposite the now confirmed Leonardo Dicaprio. So, can we start talking Oscar nominations for this one now?
