Continuing the brutal saga of "will we EVER see Michelle Pfeiffer again?" seems there's yet more trouble for MGM's plans for I Could Never Be Your Woman which they've moved at least thrice now. You can read about it at Variety if you're following this infernal wait for the return of the great one.
I was shocked that MGM handled Casino Royale so superbly this fall --but maybe that was all Sony. It's not MGM's usual MO, the deft handling of hot properties. They screwed up royally with Hotel Rwanda in 2004 --Not a great film but one that could have gone much much further with audiences & awards with a different studio behind it. Anyway, I had allowed myself to hope that even if I Could... weren't any good, it could still be a hit for the romcom market: quality is seemingly not a factor for success determinatino in this genre which tends to rely mostly on casting combos to excite its audience and the Rudd/Pfeiffer match seemed curious and inspired.
Will this film ever get released?
