Julia Goes Spinning

Pretty woman Julia Roberts is certainly no stranger to revolution — or shall we say Joe Roth’s Revolution Studios.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the $20 million per pic starlet will lend her star power to the preliminarily titled “Project 3” for the titular studio. The project will reteam Roberts with “The Mexican” helmer Gore Verbinski, who became available after Leonardo DiCaprio dropped out of DreamWorks’ “Catch Me If You Can,” which he was set to direct.

Reminiscent of George Cukor‘s 1994 classic “Gaslight,” “Project 3” is described as a story wherein a man tries to convince his wife that she is going crazy.

Besides this film, Roberts is also committed to other Revolution projects such as “American Sweethearts” and “Replay.”

GOLDEN BOYS UNITE AGAIN: The Reporter also says that Ben Affleck and Matt Damon are in talks to join Jason Lee, Brian O’Halloran and Jeff Anderson in director Kevin Smith‘s “Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back.” If the casting news sounds vaguely familiar, like you heard it earlier this week or something, it could be because the project was once titled “View Askew 5.”

MYERS CONFESSES: Mike Myers and “X-Men” director Bryan Singer are in talks to join the project “Confessions of a Dangerous Mind,” trade papers say. A fictitious reworking of the life of “The Gong Show” host and rumored CIA hit man Chuck Barris, the script is written by Charlie Kaufman, who penned last year’s “Being John Malkovich.”
