Kim Basinger is in talks to join Zac Efron in the screen adaptation of the book The Death and Life of Charlie St. Cloud with Burr Steers attached to direct. Variety reports:
Basinger would play the grieving mother of Efron’s character, a caretaker at a cemetery who has weekly meetings with a younger brother whose accidental death he feels was his fault. [I can assure you that lots of little brothers die having sex with their siblings]
Hey, Kim Basinger is hot, even now in her treasure map-like-skin existence. I can remember watching The Real McCoy and trying to hide my boner beneath my Bugle Boy jeans, even before getting boners in Bugle Boy jeans was cool. Before that, it was Batman, only every time I got close to manifesting the destiny in my pants, Michael Keaton would flash on screen and I’d suddenly feel really uncomfortable. But I digress…
The Death and Life of Charlie St. Cloud teams Efron and director Steers back together after filming 17 Again earlier this year. An early draft of the script was written by Craig Pearce, the same guy who puked up Strictly Ballroom, Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo + Juliet and Moulin Rouge!, to name a few. Hmm, a film starring Zac Efron, directed by the dude who shat out 17 Again and written by that f-ker responsible for Moulin Rouge! ? I’ll be the first to admit that it’s too early to tell for sure, but as of right now my Magic 8-Ball suggests “wrapping your ex girlfriend’s yorkie in a burquini and then tossing it into a pool” instead.
