To be honest I’m losing track on just who is attached to this project – the plug got pulled somewhere in early 06′ and has just now has been resuscitated. According to Variety, Patrick Wilson (who has seen his stock go up significantly since Todd Field’s Little Children and has starring roles in Lakeview Terrace, The Watchmen and Passengers) is probably taking over the lead role that was assigned to Luke Wilson – they both have the same build, so I’d argue that this is indeed the case.

Barry Munday still has Chris D’Arienzo on board to direct his debut (from his own script) with filming to being in April and remain in Los Angeles. The indie pic (2 dollar bet this preems in Sundance of 09′) is based on Frank Turner Hollon’s novel “Life Is a Strange Place”, this is about a womanizer who wakes up sans his “family jewels” after an irate father attacks him with a trumpet. Things go from bad to worse for the title character when he learns that he’s being sued for paternity by a woman he can’t even remember having sex with.

The project is co-financed by Mickey Barold and Stone Douglass’ Stick N Stone Prods. and Matthew Weaver and Scott Prisand’s Corner Store Entertainment. Eric Kopeloff is producing; Marcos Siega and Carl Levin will exec produce.

Surrounded by family, friends and fans, actor Patrick Wilson, who grew up in St. Petersburg, turned the red carpet into a reunion during Wednesday’s opening night festivities for the fourth-annual Sunscreen Film Festival.

The star of Broadway stages (Oklahoma!, The Full Monty) and movie screens (Watchmen, Little Children), was the main attraction outside Muvico BayWalk 20. Wilson warmly greeted former classmates and acquaintances while politely posing for photographs. Gawkers without tickets to the screening of his film, Passengers, co-starring Anne Hathaway leaned over the plaza’s second floor railing or strolled by for closer looks.

Wilson, 35, the son of WTVT-Ch. 13 anchorman John Wilson and his wife, Mary K. Wilson, has walked his share of red carpets in the past but declared this one, in his hometown and supporting independent filmmakers, something special.

“I’ve wanted to be a part of this festival for a while,” Wilson said. “It’s sort of a no-brainer. I’ve always wanted to shoot (a movie) down here, or do whatever I can to give the film vibe around here a bit of a boost.”

Wilson said the fact that his brother, Paul Wilson of Wilson Media, is handling publicity for the Sunscreen festival didn’t figure into his decision. “I think I was the one who asked him,” the actor said. “I hoped at some point they’d reach out to me. If not, I’ll just reach out to them.”

“Anytime you can do something to help out the independent (film) community, that’s important to me.”

After the Passengers screening, nearly 400 festival VIP pass holders and guests migrated to the nearby Museum of Fine Arts, where live music, hors d’oeuvres and more photo and autograph opportunities with Wilson and others awaited. The opening night party was held in the entrance conservatory overlooking Tampa Bay, with the welcome desk converted into a circular bar serving cocktails.

The menu prepared by the Parkshore Grill included roasted duck breast in mango chutney, shrimp cocktails, pork and chicken nachos, bleu cheese-stuffed meatballs, seared scallops in a goat cheese spinach dip and blue crab cakes in a spicy, sweet tomato jam. Cheesecake tarts and chocolate-dipped strawberries were served as desserts.

Sunscreen gets into full swing today with screenings at BayWalk 20 beginning at 1 p.m. A complete list of films, plus ticket information is available by clicking on this link or visiting the festival Web site at

If you didn’t make Wednesday’s red carpet events, Wilson, Bill Cobbs (Night at the Museum) and Michael Rooker (JFK) are slated to participate Thursday in a 90-minute panel discussion on acting at 10 a.m., free and open to the public. Later, the trio will lead the first day of an acting workshop for aspiring performers shelling out $125 for the experience.

Sunscreen continues at BayWalk 20 through Sunday.

The cast for the cheekily titled Morning Glory (aka “that film where Harrison Ford is going to try and be funny!”) really is shaping up nicely. According to The Hollywood Reporter, they’ve nabbed themselves the second Nite Owl, Patrick Wilson.

“The film that Ford is going to try and by funny in” centers on an up-and-coming news producer played by Rachel McAdams. She has to save a struggling morning show, and get its antagonistic anchors (Ford and Diane Keaton) under control.

Trying to save McAdams from losing the will to live is Wilson, who will play her boyfriend. While Wilson is clearly trying to earn some comedy cred (Morning Glory is the third comedy he’s signed for, he’s also got The Baster and Barry Munday in the works),
I sincerely hope there’s a little more to his part than just “the boyfriend.” Wilson is quite talented, and playing a boyfriend, even to McAdams, seems like a waste of his charm. Then again, how many actresses have been stuck in such a thankless part? Maybe the tide is turning.

There really is a lot of talent here on both sides of the camera: Roger Michell is directing from a script by Aline Brosh McKenna, and J.J. Abrams is producing with his Bad Robot banner. Let’s hope they can bring us a film of the witty, fun Ford (yes, he does exist) and not another Hollywood Homicide.
