Leap Year

Over the past three days, Fox’s sci-fi blockbuster padded another $50.3 million to its total, officially making it the top entry of 2009. (Sorry, !) The movie now stands directly behind Jim Cameron’s other film on the international charts ($1.34 billion compared to $1.84 billion) and is ranked 7th on the domestic charts. (The Dark Knight sits on that list at #2 with $533,345,358.)

Michael Cera Embraces Womenswear

Michael Cera and Portia Doubleday in Youth in Revolt

enjoyed wearing a dress for his latest film role.

The Superbad actor - who plays two characters, an aspiring novelist Nick Twisp, and man of action Francois Dilinger in his latest film, - said he didn’t mind donning a dress for the role, because it was better than being stripped down to his boxers.

“I was just relieved to have something on. I was doing a scene with just boxers on before that, so it was just nice to not have people see me as much. That’s why it was so comfortable. I don’t think I was thinking about the dress. I was trying to remember what to say.”

First Look: Michael Cera in Youth and Revolt

Miguel Arteta’s tells the story of Nick Twisp (Michael Cera) and his sexually driven endeavors to win the love of the girl of his dreams, Sheeni Saunders, while dealing with the absurd dysfunctions that encircle his life.

Yeah, that’s definitely a Michael Cera film.

Based on the novel by C.D. Payne, the film is set to hit theaters October 30.

Youth in Revolt Finally Starts Casting

Steve Buscemi cast as George TwispProducers of the upcoming C.D. Payne adaptation, Youth in Revolt, decided to spill the beans on developments in casting at this year’s Cannes Film Festival.

While Nick Twisp’s shoes have long-since been filled in by Michael Cera, fans of the novel had been curious as to which actors would fill the rest of the slots, as all the roles are quite difficult to tackle. That is, until now! Steve Buscemi will be playing Twisp’s playboy, two-timing father George Twisp while Ray Liotta, Jean Smart, and M. Emmet Walsh have jumped aboard as well.

The Good Girl director Miguel Arteta is attached to the film, adapted by Charlie Bartlett writer Gustin Nash.

Michael Cera to Star in Film Adaptation of Youth in Revolt

Michael Cera to portray Nick TwispYouth In Revolt, both a critically acclaimed novel by C.D. Payne and a failed MTV mini-series, has been adapted into a screenplay and began production early this year. This original and hilarious black comedy will star (Juno, Superbad) as the story’s overly sex-crazed protagonist, Nick Twisp, who - along with an inconvenient hair trigger on his erectile response - involves himself in arson, car theft, homelessness and even an identity change to satisfy his pubescent desires and finally lose his virginity. Although no other cast members have been confirmed, Cera’s recently built reputation for the role as the awkward teen with no grip on a decent romantic or sex life (which rightfully won him 2 nominations for Best Young Actor this year) will certainly do great justice for the role.
