Wilson Bros pt 1: Uma's Pissed

Hey guys, it's Donnie...After Beatrice Kiddo finally got her sweet sweet revenge on the ubiquitous Bill, I think we could all agree that a pissed off samurai Uma Thurman is most certainly a force to be reckoned with. But what about a pissed off superhero Uma Thurman? Well, in the immortal words of Monty Python, "RUN AWAY!"

Owne Wilson may be living the sweet fantasy life, but Luke Wilson is screwed. Uma Thurman has signed on the play the spurned superheroine in Super Ex. Announced a short while back, the story centers around a regular guy who breaks up with his needy super hero girlfriend. However, rather than let him get on with his life, the embittered Super Uma starts using her superpowers to make his life a living hell.

This is a really fantastic concept and the casting of Luke Wilson as regular guy victim and Uma Thurman as self-righteous rejected super-being is inspired. I'm not really sure about the two of them together, only because I feel like Uma would totally overshadow Wilson, but, then again, she is a goddamn superhero, so maybe that's what they're going for. Despite his recent string of middling films, I still have ultimate faith in Ivan Reitman as a director, and I have a feeling that this project is gonna turn a corner for him.

This one is most definitely staying on my radar...
