Ghost 2.0! Mandy Moore To Star In New Ghost Flick

mandy moore to star in new ghost flick

Good to hear! We've had enough zombies, vampires, and werewolves lately…

Mandy Moore will take a sharp turn away from Disney's Tangled to star in Ghost 2.0 Falling Slowly, which is a supernatural drama "about a couple whose apartment is haunted by a dark presence."

The film's being directed by Chris Sparling, the guy who wrote the claustrophobically creepy Ry Ry-stuck-in-a-box-flick Buried.

We're intrigued to see Mandy Moore take on a new genre like this.

She said herself that she was through with romantic comedies. Let's see how that works out for her…

Mandy Moore Is Done With Romantic Comedies!

Filed under: Film FlickersMandy Moore

Understandable, especially given how the last few that she's done have bombed!

Mandy Moore recently revealed that she's no longer interested in starring in light-hearted, romantic comedies, because she doesn't find them fulfilling creatively!

She explains:

"I've had fun doing romantic comedies but I just can't anymore. There's nothing fulfilling creatively, there's nowhere to grow, nothing to learn from it or for yourself. I'd rather just be home with my family or write music until that special project comes my way. It was fun to dip my toe in the water (with musicals in Tangled), but I'd like to do the real thing on the big screen. That'd be so much fun."

Nice!

And we DEFINITELY agree that we'd like to see you in features with a little more substance, bb, especially given how FANTASTIC you are in edgier roles - like in Saved and American Dreamz!

Of course - never say never! You could find a romantic comedy that really works, it's just a matter of quality!

Either way, best of luck!

Thoughts??

Natalie Portman Producing To Create Better Roles For Women

Wowsa! That's amazing!

Natalie Portman is finally tackling a genre she has always avoided - the romantic comedy! In her new film, No Strings Attached, she had found a rom-com that doesn't offend her.

She said:

“I’ve always wanted to do one. But the girls are always in fashion, and it’s always about their clothes. They always want to get married at the end. There’s some kind of makeover scene. That stuff offends me.

[Screenwriter] Liz Meriwether writes women so specifically and smartly. My character is a woman who’s working, who’s trying to create her own construct for relationships, who’s funny herself — and isn’t just the girlfriend of a funny guy."

And Natalie isn't going to stoop!

The actress is developing female friendly comedies through her production company, Handsomecharlie Films. She's producing, Best Buds, a stoner roadtrip comedy, and BYO, which has been described as a female Superbad.

Portman’s producing partner Annette Savitch said:

“Natalie wants to build something that’s different from your usual production company. We want to do movies that are female driven, from a fresher perspective. So if it’s a comedy, it’s not just about women out to find husbands. I think that’s really lacking today.”

Amen! You go, girl.
