She kissed a girl and she liked it, but is now marrying, or is married to Russell Brand. Now pop star, Katy Perry, is heading to the big screen well her voice is as she is down to play Smurfette in The Smurfs. That instantly reminds me of Donnie Darko (see the clip below if you don’t know about the Darko thing).
Recent news on the film was that Neil Patrick Harris was playing a live action role in the film. Now, along with Perry, Alan Cummings (Tin Man, X-Men 2) will voice Gutsy Smurf, George Lopez as Grouchy Smurf and Jonathan Winters as Papa Smurf.
Winters voiced Papa and a number of other Smurfs in the original cartoon. Actually it was Don Messick who voiced Papa Smurf originally. Thanks to Birdchick for the info.
I still can’t get excited about this film although I know my kids will probably love it and, at the end of the day, they are exactly who the film is aimed at.
Do you think Perry will work as Smurfette?

Here is the first look at the sort of sequel to Forgetting Sarah Marshall as Russell Brand is playing the same character in this one. Sean “Diddy” Combs plays Sergio Roma, a record company executive. It also stars Brand’s fiancee, Katy Perry, as herself along with Christina Aguilera and Pink.
Written and directed by Nicholas Stoller here is the synopsis:
Aaron Greenberg (Hill) gets things done. The ambitious 23-year-old has exaggerated his way into a dream job just in time for a career-making assignment. His mission: Fly to London and escort a rock god to L.A.’s Greek Theatre
for the first-stop on a $100-million tour. His warning: Turn your back on him at your own peril.
British rocker Aldous Snow (Brand) is both a brilliant musician
and walking sex. Weary of yes men and piles of money, the former front man is searching for the meaning of life. But that doesn’t mean he can’t have a few orgies while he finds it. When he learns his true love is in California, Aldous makes it his quest to win her back…right before kick-starting his world domination.
As the countdown to the concert begins, one intern must navigate a minefield of London drug smuggles, New York City brawls and Vegas lap dances to deliver his charge safe and, sort of, sound. He may have to coax, lie to, enable and party with Aldous, but Aaron will get him to the Greek.

St Trinians was a series of cartoons created by Gerard Searle who also illustrated the Molesworth cartoons. They portrayed a British girls private school who practiced torture on each other, teachers and any other unfortunate passers-by. They were adapted into a series of films in the fifties and sixties and spawned a recent Gemma Arterton, Russell Brand-starring remake.
The film also stars Girls Aloud singer Sarah Harding, and both Rupert Everett and Colin Firth reprieve their roles from the earlier film.

Cinema Blend have news of a rumour stirring in the briny ocean. Aye, Jim lad it be just a rumour. Oo Ahh, a bottle of rum and all that malarkey.
I mentioned a while ago that Pirates of the Caribbean 4 is going to happen and Johnny Depp is happy to return as Captain Jack Sparrow.
Todays rumour deals with the nebulous possibility that Tim Burton could possible maybe supposedly be directing the fourth installment. This could be pretty cool and the fact Depp is still involved may bring his mate Burton on board. The rumour also mentions a few other things:
1. The film could deal with Jack’s search for the Fountain of Youth.
2. Captain Jack’s brother could be part of the story and the names Sacha Baron Cohen or Russell Brand are being bandied about. I think it would be wrong of them to go with a copy of Captain Jack which is what Russell Brand would possibly do.
3. Geoffrey Rush and Gore Verbinski (director of the first 3) are also said to return but if the Burton rumour is true then I can’t see what Gore would do.
What do you think of the rumour? Would you like to see a Tim Burton Pirate’s movie? What would you like to see in the next one?
*Yes I know it was Jack Burton who said “It’s all in the reflexes” I just wanted to get the quote in somewhere. I was trying the Capt Jack, (tim) Burton thing but it just wasn’t working.
