Luke Wilson vs Super Bitch

Hey guys, it's Donnie...Luke Wilson, the underappreciated (and probably the smarter) of the Wilson brothers has just signed on to a project which sounds like absolute genius: Super Ex, in which Wilson breaks up with his girlfriend only to discover that she's actually a famous superhero. To make matters worse, in her bitterness, she decides to use her superpowers to make his life a living hell. Oh yeah, and it's directed by Ivan "Ghostbusters" Reitman.

One of my favorite consequences of the rise in comic book films: Films that use the genre as a commentary or a way to tell everyday stories with a clever edge. Will Smith has a movie in development called Tonight, He Comes, about an alcoholic superhero pining over a smalltown housewife.

It all sounds good to me. Personally I'm still waiting for his collaboration with Mike Judge where Wilson gets frozen and wakes up a thousand years in the future to discover that society has been so dumbed down that he's now the smartest man in the world. What ever happened to that movie? If you know, please tell me.
