I think that was the rumor when I first stumbled in here in 2004.
Laura Dern is the only actor/actress that is attached to the project. According to imdb, the script is still being developed. Michael Crichton and William Monahan (The Departed) are listed as the writers, so it shouldn't be too bad.
Perhaps, but I wouldn't hold my breath.
"Purgatory's kind of like the in-betweeny one. You weren't really shit, but you weren't all that great either. Like Tottenham."
I'll try being nicer...if you'll try being smarter.
