David O. Russell, the director who hilariously feuded with Lily Tomlin on the set of I Heart Huckabees, will be directing Jake Gyllenhaal and Jessica Biel in Nailed, a political satire co-written by Al Gore’s daughter Kristin.
Biel would play Sammy Joyce, a socially awkward small-town receptionist who has a nail accidentally shot into her head by a clumsy workman, eliciting wild sexual urges.
The uninsured Joyce goes on a crusade to Washington to fight for the rights of the bizarrely injured. She meets an immoral congressman (Gyllenhaal) who takes advantage of her sex drive and capitalizes on her crusade as Joyce heads into her own career in politics. [Hollywood Reporter]
Ooh, taking advantage of Jessica Biel’s sex drive, let’s hope for some nudity. Or failing that, some really snappy, clever dialogue. Think you can handle it, David O. Russell? Fingers crossed!
Wait a second, Gyllenhaal as a congressman? He’s 26. …Jake Gyllenhaal … Congress … page scandal … bathroom sex … so … many … jokes … BRAIN ANEURYSM!
