When Sean Avery announced his internship at Vogue this summer, it seemed like the kind of idiotic premise Hollywood producers would make a horrible movie out of. Oh hey guess what?
Do real men wear Prada? New Line Cinema will presumably answer that question in a film about professional hockey player Sean Avery’s experiences in the fashion world, including his stint as a summer intern at a fashion magazine…
The movie will be a romantic comedy.
And it will be delightful, I’m sure. I never tire of learning about the different ways people in fashion are shallow and mean. So far we’ve had a movie about an awkward “smart” girl who makes her way through the fashion industry, and there’s also a TV show about an ugly girl making her way through the fashion industry, and now there’s gonna be a movie about a big tough hockey player making his way through the fashion industry. There’s still lots of tread on those tires, Hollywood. What if a vampire tried to make his way through the fashion industry? No wait! A zombie! Or how about a dinosaur? A robot dinosaur!!!! That would be totally ZANY AND HILARIOUS!!!
