Our friends at several trade outlets today have leaked to us some interesting news today; they heard that actress Angela Bassett has agreed officially to star in the new action comedy titled This Means War.
The film is to be produced by Overbrook Entertainment (Will Smith’s Production company and is about friends who fall in love with the same woman and decide that they will battle for her love; what makes this an interesting story is that the friends are spies!
Rumors of this film are rampant that Smith may join the cast that already has Chris Pine, Tom Hardy and Reese Witherspoon. We heard from our sources that the comedy may actually have Smith as the comedic villain, but we can’t confirm or deny that yet.
Anyway, 2011 is shaping up to be the year for action/comedy for Bassett as she also has Jumping the Broom (also starring Paula Patton, Mike Epps, DeRay Davis, and Laz Alonso) and Green Lantern (also starring Ryan Reynolds).
We also heard that Ms. Basset is looking at a couple of more comedy films for 2012! All we can say is WOW!
