Rachel Weisz

Karyn Kusama, director of the upcoming Megan Fox horror vehicle Jennifer's Body, chatted some with io9 about what's lined up next in her directorial pipeline. And, apparently, she'll be holding fast to the horror genre - but this as yet unnamed script is a "psychological horror in the David Cronenberg tradition." Okay, Kusama. I'll bite. "[The script] definitely does fall into sort of a body horror movie that deals very, very specifically with our concept of gender. I can't really talk to you specifically about it other than to say that Rachel Weisz is attached to the film." Now you've got our attention! But what exactly is it about?

Oh, Rachel Weisz. Sweet, sweet, beautiful, talented, disarming Rachel Weisz - in a gory, gender-bending, body-altering horror film akin to Cronenberg's Videodrome or The Fly?! Oh my yes. To what degree will Weisz's gender be subverted? What's this film even about? Why won't Rachel Weisz return my numerous emails? These are all questions we just don't know yet. But Kusama's next project is certainly one to pay attention to. Yes? And in the meantime, you might as well catch Jennifer's Body this weekend to support her (Alex liked it), or visit one of her older films, like Girlfight (we're not going to mention the other one).

Are they, Alex? Are they "questions you don't know yet?" Cause the fact that you wrote them out makes it seem like you do. Here's a question that I can't answer: How does one "subvert gender?" You can subvert gender roles, or identities, or dichotomies, but you can't overthrow, cause the downfall of, or corrupt "gender." Did you maybe mean "altered" or "doctored" or even just "changed?" If you guys are interested in hiring proofreaders to help out with your god awful diction, let me know. I'll work for less than anybody else and consider the difference charity.

#4 - This was actually written by Brandon... But either way, no need to attack his writing, he was just trying to be fun, ask some questions, since we barely know anything about this project.

#4 and #5 Be COOL

#6 - Okay, I'll calm down. #4 - I'm not criticizing him for asking questions, I was just pointing out an error. We do "know the questions." He just asked them. It's the answers we don't know. Also, I like how you changed the byline after I commented. Sorry for being a dick, but I have such a love-hate relationship with this site. Best movie news, worst writing. #6 - Okay, NOW I'll calm down.

#7, i agree with you there, best movie news, don't entirely agree with worst writing, of it's worst writing, it wouldn't make best movie news
