When we all saw the teaser for Delivery Man (ha, "we all" — everyone, everywhere saw it), the movie about Vince Vaughn being a sperm donor who finds out he's got like a million kids running around, we assumed (again with this "we" — sorry, I assumed) that it would be some dumb raunchy comedy full of goofs and gags. But now we see the full-length trailer and while there are definitely goofs and gags, there's also emotion. Which, I gotta say, is pretty exciting! Remember when Vince Vaughn was a serious actor, doing movies about people trapped in Thai prisons and stuff? Sure, he got famous for Swingers, but there was a while there when he was doing lots of drama. Then that stopped, around the time of Old School, let's say. But now, so many years later, there's this. The movie appears to be mostly a comedy, but there are tears, actual Vince Vaughn tears, in the trailer. And wistful music and talk about "life" and everything. Very interesting, Vince Vaughn. Very interesting indeed.
Oh brother. James Franco has announced his intentions to direct a movie version of The Sound and the Fury, the William Faulkner novel that's like... the Southern novel. When someone says "Southern novel" lots of people are going to say "Sound and the Fury?" This would be Franco's second Faulkner adaptation, as he had As I Lay Dying at Cannes this year. So... how about that. Who will play Benjy? Hopefully Jonah Hill. And then Dave Franco can be Quentin. Really this thing casts itself. It's going to be great. James Franco is perfect for this. When I heard that someone was going to be making The Sound and the Fury into a movie (again), I immediately thought "I hope it's James Franco." And it is. Thank sweet Dilsey, it is. [Indiewire]
