Official Cinematic Crush Update

As longtime Cinema Romantico readers may (or may not) recall, I often used to whine that my ex-official Cinematic Crush Sienna Miller was never properly utilized in some sort of neo-noir film. (I also endlessly pitched my idea for her to star in the Jane Greer role with Josh Brolin in the Robert Mitchum role in an "Out of the Past" remake but, as expected, Hollywood refused to return my calls.)

I only mention it because my current official Cinematic Crush Malin Akerman just completed filming on writer/director Sebastián Gutiérrez's "Hotel Noir", descried by Collider as a "1950s-set film that centers on a detective holed up in a downtown hotel waiting for assassins to kill him." They go on to state: it "is currently without distribution, but it will be shopped to international buyers in Cannes."

Now imagine her in black & white......smoking a cigarette.
It co-stars Rufus Sewell, Carla Gugino, Danny DeVito, Rosario Dawson, and Robert Forster. No word on what part Ms. Akerman plays but would it to be too much to ask for her to get a Dorothy-Malone-In-"The-Big-Sleep" single scene stealing type a deal?




Gutiérrez wrote "Snakes On A Plane"?

So then it probably is too much to ask?

And she also said she isn't sure if her Lovelace biopic is going to happen after all!!! (shudder)

Oh well, at least she has a crazy Nic Cage movie in the works. And a sitcom pilot.

I'm sorry Nick.

It's not going to happen.

I'll purchas some tissues for you as you with your keyboard.

Your friend,
