Exclamation Kournikova and Witherspoon

www.darkhorizons.com reported:

In happier news, the trade also reports that Reese Witherspoon has netted an $8 million payday to star in this drama set in the world of professional women's tennis, with her starring as a washed up player who allies herself with a bright young and rising style player Anna Kournikova whose got the look and endorsements, but not the intensity to win a major tournament. Intermedia Films is aiming for a May production start.

Excellent! Reece is a good choice. I like her almost as much as her husband. (well, not quite that much )

Is it me or did ANNA KOURNIKOVA just seem to be inserted in that sentence?!

Take out ANNA KOURNIKOVA and you have a complete, flowing sentence.

Anna can for sure play better tennis as reese witherspoon can act, still when the movie will be on tv I will watch for sure

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

I like Reese, but I dont think I can warm up to her the way I can to, let's say- Lisa Kudrow or Alicia Silverstone.

From what it sounds like, Anna is going to be in the film?! That can't be right. I wish copy editors would do a better job of scanning an article before allowing it to be published.

I love Reese Witherspoon. She is one of my favorite young actresses!

I just read Anna is realy pissed about this movie because she feels like they make fun of her so I doubt she will have play in it herself.

Thumbs down

Anna K is not going to be it. Reese's character will be teamed up with an Anna K type player.

Poor Anna. That is rough. No player deserves the kind of derision this movie will probably make of her.

The film company NEVER mentioned Anna. They never mentioned a "player like Anna" The media is ASSUNMING that is a player LIKE Anna. I hate people that Assume. People that assume make an as out of me and Uma Thurman.

I read a few confilicting reports about a tennis player that, herself explodes under pressure or something...so it is all up in the air...
