They just released the poster for Jenna Dewan's 2008 romantic comedy 'The Jerk Theory'. The movie will be coming out some time later this year, and you can CLICK HERE to watch the trailer.
It's actually one of FIVE films this hard-working actress has on her dance card this year. Here's a list of the ones we know so far:
- ‘Love Lies Bleeding‘ (January 2008)
- ‘Fab Five: The Texas Cheerleader Scandal‘ (August 2008)
- ‘Shine On‘ (TBD)
- ‘The Jerk Theory‘ (TBD)
- ‘The Six Wives of Henry Lefay‘ (TBD)
As if that's not enough, Channing Tatum's longtime girlfriend was just recently cast in 'Virgin on Bourbon Street' (which is currently scheduled to start filming in August), and the Hollywood Reporter, E! Online, and numerous other entertainment news outlets announced today that Jenna has been cast in two more roles.
Jenna Dewan and Luke Goss are attached to star in 'Magdalena,' an adaptation of a comic book featuring an extremely attractive, holy warrior. Gale Anne Hurd's Valhalla Motion Pictures, Platinum Studios and Top Cow Prods. are producing the project.
Jenna is set to play Patience, a woman who discovers that she's a part of the lineage of female warriors descended from Mary Magdalene who fight supernatural evil, must accept her destiny in time to save the world from a supernatural evil. Luke is set to play Kristof, an agent sent by the ultra secret organization that has been the guardian of the lineage of Magdalena.
Both Jenna and Luke are scheduled to appear at Top Cow's panel at the extremely popular comic book convention Comic-Con this Saturday.
'Assorted Nightmares: The Janitor'
I also read another article today that said Hollywood's top horror directors are going to change genres for a second to bring original comedy pilots to the XBox 360 this fall. Today Microsoft Corp. announced that a set of original short film pilots will be coming to Xbox LIVE this fall and will be free to all members around the world.
In this unique concept of masters of horror will be taking on the new genre of comedy. XBox 360 owners will be able to see some of the world's greatest horror directors bring their comedic visions to life. Microsoft is teaming up with Safran Digital Group to produce these exclusive shorts.
Beginning this fall, the short film pilots will be available worldwide on Xbox LIVE from influential horror directors James Wan ("Saw," "Death Sentence"), David Slade ("30 Days of Night," "Hard Candy"), James Gunn, Lucky McKee ("May," "The Woods"), Andrew Douglas ("The Amityville Horror") and Marcus Nispel ("The Texas Chainsaw Massacre," "Friday the 13th") and emerging online talents like John Clisham.
Jenna Dewan will star in a pilot called 'Assorted Nightmares: The Janitor', which is helmed by the afore-mentioned online director John Clisham. Here's what the pilot will be about:
Somewhere in the darkness just beyond "Tales From the Crypt" and a little south of "The Twilight Zone," is "Assorted Nightmares," a modern-day horror anthology show. The first episode pays homage to the 1980s horror-slasher genre, as things at school for Jennifer don't turn out as expected."
All of the pilots will be free either for download or streaming on Xbox LIVE.
