Hollywood actress Meghan Markle has split from her husband, according to a U.S. report. The Suits star separated from talent manager Trevor Engelson in August (13), reports Us Weekly magazine.
The couple dated for six years before they married in an intimate ceremony in Jamaica September, 2011.
WHAT’S IT ABOUT?
All About Steve centers on the antics of nutty Mary Horowitz (Sandra Bullock) a thirtysomething spinster who isn’t like most women her age. A cruciverbalist (crossword puzzle writer) by trade she possesses a brain crammed to the hilt with obscure facts arcane trivia and SAT words all of which she happily dispenses — at breakneck speed — on any unfortunate soul who happens to stumble into a conversation with her. And while such a quality may prove useful in her professional life it’s terrible for her romantic one. Which is why she lives alone with her parents and her closest confidante is a hamster.
Mary’s fortunes abruptly change — in her mind at least — when she’s set up on a blind date with Steve (Bradley Cooper) a charming surprisingly handsome cable-news cameraman to whom she feels an immediate intense attraction. So intense in fact that she dedicates an entire crossword puzzle to him confusing readers and angering her boss who immediately fires her. (Apparently there are no copy editors — or editors of any kind for that matter — at the newspaper where Mary works.)
Mary deliberately misinterprets her dismissal as a sign that she is meant to be with Steve who just recently left town on assignment. Determined to follow her “destiny ” she packs her bags and embarks on a road trip pursuing her would-be soulmate as he travels to various towns to cover breaking news stories. Understandably freaked-out by the antics of his oddball stalker Steve does his best to give Mary the heave-ho to little avail.
Bullock has amped up the wackiness factor in the latter half of her career riding the “clumsy hot chick” routine to box office success in the blockbuster comedies Miss Congeniality and Miss Congeniality 2: Armed & Fabulous. In All About Steve Bullock effectively carries the film for what it’s worth as the neurotic hyperactive Mary.
Thomas Haden Church (Sideways Spider-Man 3) issues a fine performance in a supporting role as a comically self-absorbed chronically insecure TV newsman.
Methinks there’s supposed to be a point in All About Steve when Mary’s neurotic mannerisms and creepy stalker antics transition from irritating and strange to charming and quirky — making her a sort of cougar Napoleon Dynamite — but that transition never really occurs. Like Steve we just want Mary to go away. Forever.
Normally the film’s core message about being true to yourself is a virtuous one but when “yourself” is quite literally THE MOST ANNOYING PERSON IN THE WORLD the exact opposite is true. My greatest fear regarding All About Steve is that dozens of pushy delusional people will see it and feel validated in their behavior.
Sandra Bullock's face is virtually unrecognizable from her Speed days.
Robert Pattinson will star in a new Summit production, the romantic drama Remember Me, ScreenDaily.com reports.
Allen Coulter will direct the film that Summit chief Patrick Wachsberger described as this generation's Love Story. A female lead is being cast. Rachel Getting Married writer Jenny Lumet has finished the latest draft of the screenplay.
Pattinson will shoot the film this summer in New York in between Twilight sequels New Moon and Eclipse. Nick Osborne and Trevor Engelson of Underground Films are producing.
Further, Screen reports that Gary Winick is directing Letters to Juliet, with Amanda Seyfried.
The actress will play an American girl in Italy who discovers the legend of the love letters visitors leave in the wall of Juliet's (Capulet of Romeo and Juliet) courtyard in Verona and which are individually answered by a group of women called the Secretaries of Juliet.
While at the wall, she discovers a letter written in 1958 which has never been picked up and goes on a quest to find the lovers in question.
Tim Sullivan wrote the screenplay from an original draft by Jose Rivera. Ellen Barkin, whose Applehead Productions originally brought the concept to Summit's attention, is producing alongside Mark Canton, says Screen.
The rest of the casting is underway while Wachsberger told Screen the tone was in the vein of Four Weddings and a Funeral, but with "a lot of emotion."
Summit will handle domestic distribution on both films and is selling them at Cannes.
