Naomi Watts Naomi Watts and Annette Bening have signed on to topline the drama MOTHER AND CHILD. Under writer/director Rodrigo Garcia, the story follows two women - one who gave up her daughter 35 years ago and another who is looking to adopt (Kerry Washington). There's a lot more emotional complexity to the story, of course. Shareeka Epps also stars. BABEL and 21 GRAMS director Alejandro Gonzales Inarritu will executive produce the project. Production is expected to begin early next year in and around LA. Watts can next be seen taking down shady international banks alongside Clive Owen in the thriller THE INTERNATIONAL and giving therapy to Nicole Kidman in the drama NEED. Bening was most recently in the dramedy THE WOMEN.

I don't think Watts had much pull at the boxoffice, so I don't think she would have pulled many names in. (We're not talking about the acting ability, but the 'marketability'--is that a word?--and the draw to pull in other actors/actresses).

Again, I think Alba was the one--even though some had issues that a Latin actress was cast in the part of character that was white in the comics--who got (mainly males) in the seats because of her scenes.

Radha Mitchell is a strong actress, but even

Radha Mitchell is a strong actress, but even she couldn't save 'Silent Hill' which was lacking in a strong script.

So...








I guess no one cares about the actual story above? Yeah, me neither really. You gotta think though that if Watts had taken the role, it might've caused a chain reaction of other big names signing on (as was the case with Iron Man), which could've led to a stronger script...and who knows?

So, I blame Naomi Watts for FF sucking.

A note about Jessica Alba...

Jessica Alba was definitely not the cause for FF's troubles.

She was hot, especially in that uniform; it was the writing and direction that was at fault.

Hopefully, if a third is on its way to the theatres, a stronger script and director will be in place.

speaking of this!

Well all the blame can't all be on Jessica Alba, fact one we can go on and on about which great blonde actress should have gotten the role, also that Alba wasn't a natural blonde. Number two fantastic four wasn't exactly a epic movie either one for that matter. On that note the picture of Naomi Watts is smoking hot! I call dibs!

Fantastic Four would have been freakin excellent. Anything to rinse the taste of Jessica Albas' bad acting out of my mouth. Terrible, horrible bad acting.

Elizabeth Banks would have been a good choice as well, since she's already in the Spider-Man franchise ala Rebecca Romjin (Punisher and X-Men), Sam Elliot (Hulk and Ghost Rider) and Ben Foster (Punisher and X-Men)

As for the movie, oh well it looks pretty interesting.
