    what an idiotic idea, completely unbelievable couple

  • s

    I find it surprising that someone would cast Scarlett in the role instead of Amy Adams, given the choice I’d go with Amy as she’s a great actress, not to mention stunning.

  • Helena

    Finally, Scarlett is going back to making interesting films. Even if this fails, at least she is experimenting again. Working with Cameron Crowe isn’t so shabby, either.

  • Fiona

    It’s Cameron Crowe film. Of course I’ll watch. I always wanted Crowe movie with ScaJo. It’s fantastic.

  • no

    I don’t know. Is Matt playing her Dad? It might work then. The age difference is too big for romance…Come on, 15 years! It’s a Demi/Ashton relationship, but I guess nobody bats an eye when an old fart does it. LOL

  • no

    I said old f.a.r.t since when does that get censored? LOL

  • Eye Saw

    This will be a superb film!

  • Status Quo

    Amy Adams would have been my choice…just sayin…Then Rachel McAdams…

  • Potter

    Sounds ridiculous.

  • Two cents


  • stella

    Definitely would have picked Rachel over the others. She’s not only talented but has more mass appeal.

  • anon

    Whatever you think of Scarlet; Cameron Crowe is no bimbo enabler and the fact that she beat out Amy and Rachel is impressive to say the least. His films don’t usually do that well but for me personally I’m never disappointed with any of them. I am certainly curious to see what this ends up looking like…..

  • Nick Naylor

    Only a moron would find SJ a better actress than (Mc)Adams. I guess Cameron never learned from his casting failure of Bland/Dunst in Elizabethtown.

    Wait till the movie is done. But they don’t loook like a good couple.
