St. Vincent De Van Nuys Cast

You tell me that there's a movie starring Bill Murray and Chris O'Dowd, I'm sold. You tell me there's a movie with Bill Murray and Chris O'Dowd AND Naomi Watts might play a prostitute? Give me my damn ticket!

Deadline has news that the actress is in negotiations to play a Russian hooker in the film ST. VINCENT DE VAN NUYS. The film comes from a Black List script by Ted Melfi, who will also be directing. The script is being compared to AS GOOD AS IT GETS and SILVER LINING PLAYBOOK because of its mix of humor and emotion.

Synopsis:

A young boy whose parents just divorced finds an unlikely friend and mentor in the misanthropic, bawdy, hedonistic, war veteran who lives next door.

The grumpy war vet played by Bill Murray and Naomi Watts' character develop a relationship in the film as Murray teaches some life lessons to the young boy. Chris O'Dowd plays a priest that is surprised by how Bill Murray's character has influenced the boy and Melissa McCarthy stars as the child's mother.

This time of year there's a lot of news for big budget films so it's easy for smaller films like this to get lost. You read an article back in April or May and it isn't until you see a trailer months later that you're like, "Oh yeah...I remember hearing about that." This is a pretty fantastic cast and I'm dying to see how much Bill Murray channels Clint Eastwood from GRAN TORINO.

ST. VINCENT VAN DE VAN NUYS is currently in pre-production and should start filming sometime this summer.

"Bravo! What did I say? No jelly rolls!"

Naomi Watts

Extra Tidbit: I watch I HEART HUCKABEES probably once every couple of months and a big reason for that is Naomi Watts. "Eight minutes of heaven! It's not quality, it's quantity!"

If there's a chance of seeing Naomi Watts naked I'm there. I realize she's done nude scenes before but I WANT MORE!

Bill Murray as a grumpy war veteran and Naomi Watts as a Russian prostitute? Sounds like it could be comedy gold.

I don't know how she will fit this in her busy schedule, what with her starring in my dreams every night.

Isn't this the project where Bill Murray actually called up Melfi after reading the script? Yep, I'm really looking forward to what this might have to offer.

Looking at that picture of Naomi Watts I just have that song Seth MacFarlane sang at the Oscars "I saw your boobs" running through my head.
