Man, talk about a movie title that is going to be a pain to Google. Fred Schepisi ("Roxanne," "Mr. Baseball," "The Eye Of The Storm") is lining up his next movie, the blandly titled "Word And Pictures," but luckily his two leads are much livelier.

Man, talk about a movie title that is going to be a pain to Google. Fred Schepisi ("Roxanne," "Mr. Baseball," "The Eye Of The Storm") is lining up his next movie, the blandly titled "Word And Pictures," but luckily his two leads are much livelier.

The always awesome Juliette Binoche and the suave Clive Owen are set to star in the film, penned by Gerald DiPego (“Phenomenon,” “Message In a Bottle”). The story takes place at an elite, insular New England prep school where a charismatic English teacher (Owen) and an intensely private art teacher (Binoche) create an improbable relationship, then proceed to complicate their lives with romance. Guys, get it? WORDS AND PICTURES. Okay, the premise sounds pretty generic, but in the hands of these actors we'll definitely be willing to see what they make of it.

Production on the movie will begin in March, and we're likely to write a few more words and include some pictures about it between now and then.
