Cheadle In The Dog House

Apologies for the no post yesterday, but I started the Master Cleanse (which happened to coincide with Ramadan) and I was a grouchy she-bear. Blessings to my Muslim readers; I am right there with you right now.

Anyway, Mrs. Grapevine was kind enough to forward this to me. It's a new Don Cheadle movie, and I must say, the storyline is a bit suspect. From Variety:

Don Cheadle is barking up a new tree. The actor has signed on to co-star in DreamWorks' live-action "Hotel for Dogs."

Emma Roberts has already boarded the film, which is based on Lois Duncan's 1971 children's book of the same name.

Story revolves around two orphaned teenagers who hide dozens of stray dogs in an abandoned hotel. Cheadle will play a beleaguered social worker who keeps the kids out of trouble. Jeff Lowell penned the screenplay.

Project, which begins shooting in early November, marks Thor Freudenthal's feature directorial debut.

Jon Gordon, Lauren Shuler Donner and Jack Leslie are producing.

Cheadle most recently appeared in Warner Bros.' "Ocean's Thirteen," Columbia's "Reign Over Me" and Focus Features' "Talk to Me."

From I.W.: A good actor should stretch out in different types of roles, but I hope this one is better than it sounds, cause I love the Cheadle.

I don't know what made you do the Master Cleanse. It is a she-beast. I'm going vegetarian for 3 weeks (during Ramadan=stupid) and I'm dying. Satisfied, but feening for a piece of chicken.

Good luck, IW!

Everyone got do a film for their kids. Even Johnny Depp did it, and I never thought he would sell out.

I'm hoping right along with you, IW. But this sounds like a Cuba Gooding role.

@wanda- a piece of chicken looks like a holiday feast to me right now, damn.@mgv and ubm; we'll see how it turns out, but I agree-smells like Cuba to me too.
