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.
She might be an Oscar-winning actress but to her two kids, Reese Witherspoon is sometimes, well, just embarrassing, she says in a new interview.
To illustrate her point, the actress tells the story to Parents magazine of taking her 9-year-old daughter Ava to see country star Carrie Underwood.
“She said, ‘Mom I really appreciate you taking me to the concert, but will you please not embarrass me in front of Carrie Underwood by singing because she’s a real singer and you’re just, like a movie singer,” says Witherspoon, who won a Best Actress Oscar for playing singer June Carter Cash in 2005’s Walk the Line.
Reese is inside Redbook magazine’s March 2009 issue. Here is a some of the article via their website.
Reese Witherspoon on Movies and Motherhood
The manners and morals of a movie-star mom
I’m not a super-strict parent, but I think it’s important to have rules for children. It gives them a sense of structure — and that’s what we are all seeking. We just want to know when we’ve done something right or wrong. That’s what I’m trying to teach my own children [Ava, nine, and Deacon, five].
I grew up in Nashville, Tennessee, and my parents taught me to respect my elders. We’d say things like “yes, ma’am” and “no, sir” to adults. But kids in Los Angeles don’t do that. I’ve drawn the line at my children calling adults by their first names. I tell them they can call people “Miss Shannon” or “Miss Heather” but that using only the first name is too familiar. Maybe I’m just old-fashioned.

Reese won Favorite Female Movie Star at last night’s People Choice Awards! Congrats to our lady! Reese made an appearance at the event, although skipping the red carpet she made her way on stage and later to the press room. She looked beautiful in a cute dress and as you can see she has a new hairdo! Stunning as always.
I have added 50+ pictures from as well as a portrait session of Reese with her trophy. I actually totally forgot about this one last night (despite being reminded my my mom – twice) so I didn’t get to record it and thus no reminder yesterday. So if someone managed to get Reese’s speech please donate it to the site. Also, regular updates are going to resume now (I apologize for the lack in updates lately, I was busy with the Holidays these past few weeks so now I’m going to catch up!)

‘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.
