Justin Bieber always seemed like a younger, female version of Ashton Kutcher to me so it makes sense that the two would co-star in a movie together. This one is titled What Would Kenny Do? but sadly this isn’t torture porn. The movie is actually sort of a Freaky Friday type deal which fits perfectly into my young, female Ashton Kutcher theory.
Chris Baldi’s “Kenny” script, which landed on Hollywood’s Black List in 2008, is an R-rated comedy describing a teenager who meets a hologram claiming to be the adult version of himself; the hologram then helps guide the teen through high school. The project was originally set up at MGM label United Artists when MGM was under different management.
“(500) Days of Summer” writers Scott Neustadter and Michael Weber then came on and wrote a new draft of the script. According to a person who was briefed on the new (less raunchy) draft, the story now involves Kutcher’s successful character actually jumping back in time to help the present-day Bieber, who remains awkward. A new writer and director are currently being sought. [LAT]
There’s a saying in Hollywood, it goes something like “cha-ching, cha-ching!” Roughly translated, that means they’ll try and squeeze money out of whoever is popular right now. Then there’s another saying that goes, “If you blow me right now, you’ll get the job.” But that’s neither here nor there unless you’re auditioning for my fake production company.
