Horrible Bosses stars Jennifer Aniston and Jason Sudeikis may be reuniting for another comedy. Deadline reports that Aniston is in talks to star in the comedy We’re the Millers, and Sudeikis is apparently eyeing a role. The film centers on “a pot dealer who pulls together a fake wife and two kids to pose as an RV road-tripping family so that he can smuggle 1000 pounds of pot cross country.” Aniston would play the wife, who’s actually a hooker, and Sudeikis is circling the pot smuggler role. The pic was written by Wedding Crashers scribes Bob Fisher and Steve Faber, and Rawson Thurber (Dodgeball: A True Story) is set to direct.
Aniston is an incredibly gifted comedic actress when given the right material (see: Horrible Bosses) and Sudeikis has crackerjack charisma, so I’d love to see these two team up on this project. The tone is described as a “warped Vacation”, and Harry Potter producer David Heyman is producing alongside Happy Walters, Vince Newman and Tucker Tooley.

Earlier this week, we reported that director Phillip Noyce (Salt) was in talks with Relativity Media to helm the international action-thriller/submarine flick (yep, it’s a real genre) Hunter Killer. Today, we have confirmation on that report as Noyce has officially signed on to the project. Per THR, Noyce is looking to begin shooting the picture later this year.
In case you missed it last time, Hunter Killer is based on the upcoming novel Firing Point by George Wallace and Don Keith. The film, penned by Jamie Moss (X-Men: First Class), Arne Schmidt (Chain Reaction), and John Kolvenbach (Coney Island), conjoins an American submarine commander and a Navy SEAL in an attempt to rescue the Russian president from a renegade admiral. Neal Moritz and Toby Jaffe of Original Films will team-up with Relativity’s Ryan Kavanaugh and Tucker Tooley to produce Hunter Killer.
At the 2010 Sundance Film Festival, everyone was talking about a movie they couldn’t really talk about. That film, a documentary called Catfish, was later picked up by Rogue Pictures and the trailer just went online.
This is definitely one of those movies that you should know as little about as possible, except this. A New York photographer named Nev Schulman became friends with a family from Michigan when their youngest daughter painted a photo that Nev took. Through the internet, Nev became friends with the mother, dated the sister and was so impressed with the youngest daughter’s paintings that his brother Ariel and friend Henry Joost decided to film the whole thing. Jaw-dropping and heart-wrenching, Catfish was easily one of my favorite films I saw at Sundance this year.
Hit the jump to check out the teaser-iffic trailer, poster, some images and a synopsis, then avoid all spoilers until September 17 when Catfish will finally be released.
When Rogue Pictures first announced they were making a MacGruber movie, I’ll admit to thinking it might not work. After all, MacGruber is based on a very short Saturday Night Live sketch and I wasn’t sure he could make the transition to the big screen. But based on the reviews out of SXSW where the film premiered, my nervousness was unfounded, as people loved the film and it’s currently at 100% on Rotten Tomatoes! What I heard was it’s incredibly stupid but incredibly funny. With a May 21st release date, we’ll all know if the film is as great as people are saying soon.
But if you’d like to get a look at a few scenes now, we’ve been given 5 clips and you can watch them after the jump.
