This is a good news/ bad news sort of news bit.
First the good news: ’s first feature film since the kind-of-underrated-but-still-not-spectacular Cat’s Meow has just added some awesome new cast members.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, , (who rose to stardom in Bogdanovich's The Last Picture Show), , and have joined the comedy, which centers on a Broadway director who falls for a prostitute-turned-actress.
Aniston will play the director's therapist. The role was previously cast with , who apparently dopped out.
The movie already had a pretty spectacular cast, with playing the enarmored director and , and lending strong support. It's the best cast the director has had since his heyday in the 1970s, where he made classics like Paper Moon, so we're pretty excited for this one.
So far, so more-than-good.
The downside: The film’s previous, sympathetically silly title, Squirrels to Nuts, was changed to She's Funny That Way. That's an awful rom-com title if there ever was one.
Here’s hoping that Bogdanovich’s film closes ranks with the director's classics and doesn't live up to its (new) title.
