"'The Bourne Identity' but with a leprechaun." So goes the logline for "The Wee McGinty," a script from Mark Gibson and Phil Halprin. Summit Entertainment saw enough in the script to make the purchase, but apparently they've decided it just doesn't suck enough to get made, and so Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant have come aboard for a re-write, with Garant slated as director and Lennon up for a supporting role.

Sienna Miller has had an interesting, if not entirely satisfying, career so far. Having been dismissed by many as yet another model-turned-actress after early roles in "Alfie" and "Layer Cake," she proved to be a far more interesting proposition, with an excellent performance in a terrible film, "Factory Girl." She's since proved that wasn't a fluke, with strong work on stage in "As You Like It" and "After Miss Julie," and two very good performances in Steve Buscemi's "Interview" and John Maybury's "The Edge Of Love", stealing the show from Keira Knightley in the latter.

We're Not Sure Who's Luckier, The Sequel Or HimOh hey, remember last summer when it was announced that big budget hack Stephen Sommers would return to direct the sequel to his absolutely terrible "G.I. Joe."? Turns out he actually won't be.

My Favorite Films Of 2010: Drew Taylor

2010 was a year which initially seemed quite bleak and like all things over-emphasized for dramatic effect, picked up drastically before everything was said and done. Thematically, the most arresting films investigated the line between imagination and reality, from Leonardo DiCaprio battling his very literal demons in a pair of dreamworld thrillers ("Inception," which charted here, and Martin Scorsese's gorgeous trifle "Shutter Island," which did not) to Natalie Portman's Grand Guignol psychological breakdown in "Black Swan," to Woody's self-delusion in "Toy Story 3" and Scott Pilgrim's videogame-enhanced brawling in "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World." (We also can't forget James Franco, as a pinned mountaineer, talking to an imaginary television audience in "127 Hours.") Even "The Social Network," arguably the most straightforward film on this list, was structured with reality butting up against stylized self-myth-making, as a trio of stories on the formation of Facebook collided loudly. 2010, as far as movies were concerned, started out as a nightmare and ended up as a dream.

Salma Hayek has been floundering a bit in Hollywood lately. Last summer she had a thankless role in the dreadful "Grown Ups" and prior to that she starred in a number of films that ended up being non-starters such as "Cirque Du Freak," "Lonely Hearts" and "Ask The Dust." So, we can't say we're too surprised that she's going abroad for her next film role.
