James McAvoy And Mila Kunis To Star In Supernatural Rom-Com Taravella
James McAvoy is currently in the "exploding" process. Heís been working for a while fairly under the radar, but since his work in Atonement weíve barely been able to keep him out of the news. With three films already on the books, McAvoy has now added a fourth.
In the latest subscription issue of Production Weekly it was announced that James McAvoy and Mila Kunis will star in an upcoming film called Taravella. We know you love both actors, but donít get too excited. Taravella is described as ďa romantic comedy with a supernatural twistĒ which already makes it sound too much like the Sarah Michelle Gellar piece Simply Irresistable for me to take it seriously. Quite a leap from Atonement, X-Men: First Class, or his upcoming Lincoln film The Conspirator.
Kunis is set to play the titular role while McAvoy plays Linus, the man whose life she literally falls into out of the sky. Donít get me wrong, I have certainly seen some good rom-coms with a supernatural twist (Love Potion #9 anyone?) but itís already a genre to be skeptical about without the supernatural part , so I always remain wary. More on Taravella as details find their way onto the tubes.
Update! McAvoy's reps have contacted us claiming that he's not involved in this project, as originally reported.
