This just in and making me abnormally happy: Sandra Bullock will start shooting what sounds like a romantic comedy this summer. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film All About Steve will star Bullock as “a brilliant crossword constructor who, after one short date, decides that a CNN cameraman is her true love. Because the cameraman’s job takes him hither and yon, she crisscrosses the country, turning up at media events as she tries to convince him they are perfect for each other. She fails in this objective but falls in with a band of misfits who appreciate her for who she is.”
Even with its desperate “brilliant crossword constructor” attempt at originality, does it sound clichéd? Yes. Am I seeing it on opening night? Totally.Who else is psyched for Sandy’s return to the RomCom genre? After Premonition scored a 7 percent fresh rating on RottenTomatoes.com (down from The Lake House’s 36 percent), you know you want it. No shame in doing what you do well.
