The Counselor is Cormac McCarthy’s new screenplay that’s directed by the legendary Ridley Scott and features an all-star cast including Michael Fassbender, Javier Bardem, Brad Pitt, Penelope Cruz and Cameron Diaz. McCarthy is responsible for some stunning books including No Country For Old Men and The Road, both of which have hit the big screen with impressive success and this new one is highly anticipated and featured in our ‘must-see’ films for the Autumn.
In this, his first straight to screen script, the story-line focuses around Fassbender’s character who’s a lawyer and get in too deep with drug trafficking and then, we believe, it all starts to go very wrong. This brand new clip shows Cameron Diaz with cold intent and a dead straight stare. She looks hard and focused here, I’m also glad that the recent clips don’t give too much away but give you a snippet of the world we’re delving into:
Did that title appropriately grab your attention? Alright then, let me explain. Rather than making what would possibly be the most awkwardly hilarious sex tape of all time, it looks like the Jason Segel/Cameron Diaz-led comedy Sex Tape, directed by Jake Kasdan (Orange County, Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story), has now picked up Jack Black and Rob Corddry.
Sex Tape casts Jason Segel and Cameron Diaz as a married couple that decides to make a sex tape only for it to go missing. Although the fate of the tape is obviously not yet revealed, Black will be making a cameo as the CEO of a porn company, meaning that we’re in for some seriously funny moments. Corddry, on the other hand, will fill the role of the best friend helping to track down the tape.
Rumors first attached Reese Witherspoon to the project, but the addition of Diaz in her place might give Sex Tape the edge it needs. No offense to Witherspoon (she knows I still love her), but Diaz can pull off the naughty parts of movies just a bit better.
Although not much is known about Sex Tape, it’s safe to say that with such a talented cast and an accomplished comedy director behind the camera, this could shape up to be a major comedic event. As long as the studio pushes for the hard-R rating it needs, we could have another winning adult comedy. It’s hard to imagine the film lacking heart with Segel in the lead, and Kasdan could get a winning performance out of a local drama club. Are you guys excited to see these goofs get together for a raunchy good time? Let us know in the comments, and we’ll be sure to keep our ears to the ground for any new information! (Source)
Cameron Diaz has been named the artistic director at fashion house Pour La Victoire.
The Bad Teacher actress will be responsible for the design and marketing of products, and she will also have a hand in the company’s shoe and handbag collections.
Revealing that Cameron was initially nervous about the project, the actress tells Women’s Wear Daily, “Pour La Victoire gives me the opportunity to create something timeless. There is a lot I have to learn about the business. I am interested in learning how collections are created… I want to say that it is going to be fun, but it os deeper than that.”
Cameron Diaz is not only a spokesperson for PLV, she also owns an undisclosed stake in the brand. Cameron Diaz said, “I do not do endorsements really. This is completely different. Being influential in a brand and in its (advertising) campaigns interests me. I love fashion. It is a large part of my life. What I wear is looked at. It influences what other people wear because that is just the world we live in.”
Diaz her collection will not hit U.S. stores until next spring (14), but she will be sharing her favorite selections as part of the Cameron’s Picks campaign later this year (13). (Source)
