Beals Joins Eli
Jan. 27, 2009
Gary Oldman has a sexual prize and thy name is Beals, Jennifer Beals. The FLASHDANCE star will make her return to the big screen in the Hughes Brothers-directed THE BOOK OF ELI
, starring Denzel Washington, Mila Kunis and the aforementioned Oldman. The meaning of "sexual prize" is unclear, but that's how her role is being described. And with Gary Oldman involved, I can only assume that she will be subjected to awful, awful things. Or at least I hope so.
THE BOOK OF ELI
follows Denzel as he fights his way across the wasteland of a near-future America to protect a sacred book that might hold the key to saving humanity. It feels like I've been writing stories about this project forever so I'm glad to learn that principal photography begins next month in New Mexico. Jennifer Beals beware.
||Beals' character is also blind. Just the way Oldman likes em, that sicko.
