Thompson on Hollywood
Sandra Bullock knows what she's doing. Tired of all the crazy tabloid crap, she's moving the conversation on to kissing Scarlett Johansson on MTV and possibly co-starring with her husband Ryan Reynolds on a new comedy, Most Wanted. Looks like she's following my career advice and getting back to work. This is not only good news for Bullock and Reynolds, but for Universal Pictures' beleaguered current management team.

One thing I can tell you: they are paying the duo top dollar for this action comedy, which they bought on a pitch from The Proposal writer Peter Chiarelli (my flipcam interview with him and The Proposal director Anne Fletcher is below). The logline, reports EW: criminal suspect Bullock is escorted to court by FBI agent Reynolds. Both are ambushed and forced to go on the run. Handcuffs anyone? It sounds very The 39 Steps to me. Not a bad place to start.

    The 39 Steps? Really? Sounds more like "Midnight Run" to me. And I bet Ms. Bullock does a great Charles Grodin.

    Bullock is at the top of her game and the biggest female star in Hollywood right now, which, to be honest, is shocking considering her age. But, she has always had a well of residual good will from the audience. They just didn't have a lot of good movies to see her in, so stayed away. Sandra has chosen to star in some very, very bad movies in the past. No matter how much audiences personally loved her, they couldn't sit through those films.

    From the header, I thought Sandra was going to act with BURT Reynolds. How disappointing.

    (If you combined one-time co-stars Ryan O'Neal and Burt Reynolds...you wouldn't get Ryan Reynolds.)
