Variety is reporting that Warner Bros. has dated Clint Eastwood’s next film, “Trouble With the Curve,” for September 28.
Story centers on an aging baseball scout, to be played by Eastwood, who’s losing his sight and decides to take a road trip to Atlanta with his daughter to check out a hot prospect. Amy Adams will portray the daughter and Robert Lorenz, Eastwood’s Malpaso partner, will make his directorial debut, with Malpaso producing. “Curve” will open with the Major League Baseball playoffs about to start.
The nominees for the 84rd Academy Awards was just announced and I wasn’t expecting anything this year, but I just saw “Man or Muppet“, from the original The Muppets soundtrack, was nominated as Original Song.
The song is performed by Jason Segel and Walter.
I have a few updates to do here at AAF, and I’ll start it with some photo sessions our gallery was missing. Check it:
One of the year’s best-loved family comedies and among the best-reviewed films of 2011, Disney’s The Muppets, debuts March 20 on Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD, Digital Download and On-Demand formats. The Muppets release includes the DVD and music soundtrack packaged together and also offered as the ultimate Muppets experience, a Wocka-Wocka Value Pack, which contains the movie on Blu-ray high definition, DVD and Digital Copy (three discs), plus a download card which allows fans to own all the songs from the film’s hugely popular soundtrack.
Disney’s The Muppets: Blu-ray Combo Pack, with its flawless picture and pitch perfect sound, comes with a fantastic slate of bonus content including the laugh out loud “The Longest Blooper Reel Ever Made (In Muppet History–We Think).” The exciting release also includes the hilarious featurette “A Little Screen Test on the Way to the Read Through,” which follows Jason Segel, Kermit the Frog, The Great Gonzo, Fozzie Bear, Miss Piggy and others as they get ready for the first day of production, and much more fun.
Additional fun-filled features on Disney’s The Muppets Blu-ray include a groundbreaking industry first — ‘Disney Intermission,’ a hilarious all-new feature that allows viewers to press Pause on their remote control and watch as the Muppets take over the screen and entertain until the movie resumes playing. The release also includes “Explaining Evil: The Full Tex Richman Song,” an extended version of the rollicking rap song by villain Tex Richman (Academy Award® winner Chris Cooper) who provides the hilarious backstory of why he hates the Muppets. Audio commentaries with screenwriter and star Jason Segel, director James Bobin and screenwriter Nick Stoller are also included.
With the Muppet’s signature irreverent comedy, songs and dancing, Muppet fans of all ages will cheer as the gang reunites to put on a benefit show to save the crumbling Muppet Studios from being razed by nefarious oil baron Tex Richman. New fans and long-time devotees will find the rainbow connection when they bring Disney’s “The Muppets” into their very own homes.
