Hudson & Downey Jr.
Kate Hudson, who's gone MIA since her Academy Award nominated role in ALMOST FAMOUS, is in negotiations to star alongside Robert Downey Jr. (also in negotiations) in Rob Reiner's ALEX AND EMMA. In the film, Hudson would presumably play Emma, a stenographer hired by a writer, and compulsive gambler, desperate to churn out his latest novel. They (DUH) fall in love in the process and live happily ever after. The film is based on the Dostoevski short story "The Gambler" and was adapted for the screen by Jeremy Levin. Hudson is set to begin filming on HOW TO LOSE A GUY IN 10 DAYS once Danny DeVito wraps filming on DUPLEX with Ben Stiller and Drew Barrymore. Downey Jr. just signed on to star alongside Mel Gibson in THE SINGING DETECTIVE.
