    The Leftover Question Marks Of 2011 - Can These Films Possibly Be Any Good? Part 2

    Ok, you've read part one of our The Leftover Question Marks Of 2011 - Can These Films Possibly Be Any Good? feature and hopefully you've got the gist of things.

    Nicole Kidman and producing partner Per Saari are developing a remake of the 1973 dramedy "Love and Pain and the Whole Damn Thing" under their Blossom Films shingle. The original film, directed by Alan J. Pakula, centers on two tourists who fall in love in Spain, despite their reservations about long-term possibilities. The project will be based on the Alvin Sargent's original screenplay for the 1973 film, and the female lead will be written for Kidman.

However, despite the lemming like attitude by most directors to run to the latest gizmo, ...
