Deal Report

The biggest upcoming projects in entertainment

MOVIES
+ Sandra Bullock has said ”yes” to The Proposal — a rom-com about a book editor who marries her assistant to avoid being deported back to Canada. Explains producer David Hoberman (Monk), ”This woman starts off as a hard case and ends up falling in love for the first time.”

+ Producer Joel Silver is giving He-Man a makeover. The new live-action Masters of the Universe pic will be ”cooler” and ”grittier” than the ‘87 Dolph Lundgren flick, a source close to the film assures EW. ”It’ll be more like Lord of the Rings.” No news on who’ll don He-Man’s loincloth.

BOOKS
+ Borat, a.k.a. Sacha Baron Cohen, is writing a two-in-one flip book due this fall, titled Borat: Touristic Guidings to Minor Nation of U.S. and A. and Borat: Touristic Guidings to Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan. ”It’s exactly like the movie,” says Borat’s editor, Flying Dolphin Press’ Peter Gethers, ”totally tasteless and brilliantly funny.” With one exception: ”I don’t think we’ll be seeing naked wrestling.”
