Robert Downey Jr and Reese Witherspoon are in talks to star in Warner Bros’ The Days Before and Timur Bekmambetov is in negotiations to direct, according to Production Weekly.
Produced by 300 producer Gianni Nunnari, the sci-fi action spec script was written by Chad St. John (who previously worked on the unproduced script The Further Adventures of Doc Holiday for Bruce Willis). Days Before tells the story of a race of aliens who invade Earth by traveling backwards through time and wiping out humanity, one day at a time, yesterday by yesterday. One man attempts to stay “a yesterday ahead of them”, and every time he must try to convince the world that “the end is coming”, again.
‘islander90′ has informed ComingSoon.net that during a football game on NBC, it was mentioned there would be a 3D trailer for DreamWorks’ next animated movie Monsters vs. Aliens shown during the Super Bowl telecast on February 1, as well as during a special 3D episode of NBC’s Chuck to follow later in the month. Viewers would need to pick up special glasses to be able to watch the commercial in 3D.
They later found this interesting tidbit about how the 3D episode of Chuck came about which seems to confirm the plans for a 3D event during the Super Bowl this year:
Director James L. Brooks (Spanglish) is set to team with Reese Witherspoon on an untitled comedy for Columbia Pictures, says Variety, confirming an earlier report by Collider.
The trade adds that Brooks has been holed up writing the screenplay for the film, which is described as an ensemble project that boasts at least three major characters — a hallmark of such Brooks films as Broadcast News and Terms of Endearment.
Witherspoon is the only lead to sign on so far.
The plot of the film, which has the working title How Do You Know?, is being kept under wraps. The studio is eyeing a March start date.

As stated earlier, Reese jetted to London during the Thanksgiving Holiday to do some promos for Four Christmases, even more fabulous interviews have come up and here they are, in addition to a behind the scenes featurette from the film. I will add screencaptures of everything when I’m feeling better, right now I have a sucky flu.
Also according to visitor Elenor, Reese was on The Graham Norton Show Thursday. Online you can see what seems to be the video but it’s for UK residents only. If someone has this video or can obtain it for the other fans please send it in!
As you know Reese has been all over the place, coast-to-coast promoting Four Christmases. I have now rounded up just about all the video interviews, news reports and clips from the promotion I can find/grab for archiving. I have added 19 videos to our upcoming new video archive alone, that site is offline but they can be streamed in an embeded format after the cut (click here) and their screencaptures are in the gallery.
Interviews & Talk Shows: 11 online interview junkets/premiere footage. My personal favorite is ET Online with all the Christmases gifts. Totally cute! Reese also made a talk show appearance on CW 31 on the 24th (the date of her GMA & Regis appearances, so she looks a little tired at the end). I will be adding the Regis and Jimmy Kimmel caps & videos very soon as well as a few more related things. Don’t worry in case you missed them!
News Segments: 5 reports added. Mostly are Reese being interviewed at the premiere of the film.
Four Christmases Footage: Check out 10 off-site clips, on Yahoo! and a TV spot below.

Happy Four Christmases day! Reese’s new Holiday romp is in theatres in North America so be sure to go out and check it out this Holiday weekend. I have tons of things to add tomorrow so be sure to come back for lots of updates! I didn’t get time today because I got caught up with some early guests for my own festivities. Lastly, I’d also like to wish a Happy Thanksgiving to those celebrating!
Here are some critic reviews. Be sure to let us know your thoughts on Reese and the film by commenting or in the forum. Reviews are mixed.
And Ms. Witherspoon serves as a game comic sidekick to the irrepressible Mr. Vaughn, who basically does what he always does, which is to stammer, bluster and wheedle his way through a performance that scrambles the distinction between brute and wimp. He has a tendency, slyly mocked in a church pageant scene, to upstage whomever he’s paired with, and Ms. Witherspoon, though a fine comedian in her own right, is perhaps a bit too decorous and obliging.
From: Baltimore Sun
Witherspoon is at her most winning, struggling to control situations where that’s clearly impossible.
What makes Four Christmases work, despite a few missteps into the overbroad, is that it starts with the ridiculous, then moves toward the sublime. By the end of the film, the audience has taken the same journey as Brad and Kate, and comes to the same realizations about family and relationships: They may not always be fun, and they may take work, but often they’re all we have.
