Salma is a Freak!

01.11.2008

Salma Hayek is ready to put her pregnancy and new baby behind her and return to being a freak. Specificially she will be playing a freak in the upcoming kids horror-drama CIRQUE DU FREAK. Before you and JoBlo get all excited about the return of the lovely Ms. Hayek to the big screen, get this: she's playing the bearded lady. Sigh. First pregnancy and now the bearded lady? It's a good thing we love her so much and have pictures like those to the right to remind us of why we love her so much. The film stars the previously cast John C. Reilly as a vampire who recruits a 14-year-old to join him as his assistant. The kid becomes a half-vampire and spurs a war between good and bad vampires. Paul Weitz (ABOUT A BOY) is directing based on the 12-book series by Darren Shan. Universal is set to begin production on the film next month. Hopefully sometime after that we'll see a return to the glamorous for Salma. How about a movie where she meets and falls in love with a lonely webmaster?...

Extra Tidbit: Other freaks in the book include a contortionist, an overweight man, a wolf man and a snake boy.

John C Reilly as Mr Crepsley?

Unreal, Dewey Cox as Larten Crepsley? The books show Mr Crepsley as a very elegant and gentlemanly like person, not a shuckster like Reilly plays. Stupid, stupid choice. Now Jason Issacs is his Lucius Malfoy hair would be a much better choice. I really enjoy these books but if they dont do a better job of casting I will never PAY to see the movie. ;)

and in regards casting they could have done worse. i'm pretty satisfied not ecstatic. i mean john c reilly doesn't seem right but then i don't really care about the cast so much as the shitty director in charge.
