whats new pussycat?

Nothing, thats what.

No, I’m not overly preoccupied by holiday shopping and trying to drag girls under mistletoe. The lack of updates is simply because there isn’t much out there right now.

But I’ll be damned if I’m gonna let 3 days go by without an update.

Today I added 10 new random Nat photos to the rotation over there —>

They consist of photos from the last couple months. Thanks to Jen and Omgzrachel for the assistance.

Fanatical found a possible new Nat film on this Spanish site. Here is a rough translation of the article.

They plan to shoot the movie in Mexico with artists of international size as Natalie Portman, Scarlett Johansson, Javier Bardem and Diego Luna

An American company plans to film the life of the legendary artist Mario Moreno “Cantinflas” in Mexico , reported the filmmaker Alejandro Monteverde. “The project would include Mexican artists and stars of other countries, therefore is thinking about working with figures as Natalie Portman, Scarlett Johansson and Javier Bardem”, affirmed Monteverde, who directed the movie “Bella”, starred in by Eduardo Verástegui.

The producer, native of the northern Mexican state of Tamaulipas, said that for the project they are interested in Hispanic actors of international popularity as Diego Luna and the Colombian-Venezuelan Wilmer Valderrama.

It emphasized, nevertheless, that to play the comedian “perhaps this will be the opportunity to find to a new star, because to find someone that can give life to `Cantinflas` is quite difficult”.

Monteverde, who visited the south of Florida to promote the movie “Bella”, that is found in billboard in the United States, indicated that Natalie Portman would be the wife of Russian origin of the Mexican comedian.

The director added that the project was offered to him several months ago and he must decide in the next weeks, because it has “planned to carry out the filming from May of 2008”.

It indicated that the filming would be able to be performed in Mexico City, Puebla and Acapulco. “The budget would be very large”, underlined.

Monteverde, who declined to identify the Hollywood studies involved in the plan, emphasized that “to respect to Mexico in that aspect”, the feature film would be carried out in Spanish.

Native of Mexico City, Mario Moreno Reyes “Cantinflas” (1911-1993) is considered the most famous Spanish speaking comedian.

At this point I wouldn’t think too much about it but I’ll see if I can get some confirmation.

Fanatical also found a brief mention of Natalie in this star spotting in New Mexico:

i went to the gym last night to play basketball with some friends, we played a pretty amazing game of five on five. my team = me, jenica, shannon, nick, nate. the vs. team? jake gyllenhaal, tobey maguire, their trainer, executive producer, and a set guy. (with a brief appearance by natalie portman). bottom line: i have jake gyllenhaal sweat on me. i’m never taking a shower ever again.

And finally, Derober has a new Nat entry. If you haven’t visited their site before, don’t get too worried (or excited?) by the site name.

I’ll be back tomorrow with a new poll. Till then.
