Based on the beloved 1960s television spy series created by Mel Brooks and Buck Henry, “Get Smart” Maxwell Smart on his first assignment as an agent. The actor helped the action-packed ‘Get Smart’ get going.
IN the editing bay of the updated “Get Smart,” which hits theaters June 20, director Peter Segal and film editor Richard Pearson watch images of Maxwell Smart free-fall across the screen. Would you believe . . . the man is sky diving? Would you believe . . . he’s sky diving a deux with Agent 99? Would you believe . . . he’s sky diving a trois with Agent 99 and a 7-foot, 2-inch assassin?
With the help of three stunt doubles in prosthetic makeup and a few visual effects, it’s pretty darn easy to believe that actors Steve Carell, Anne Hathaway and Dalip Singh — who play Max, 99 and the assassin, respectively — have jumped out of a plane for a midsky tussle.
“I’ve always envisioned myself as a major action star,” deadpans 45-year-old Carell. “You know, frankly, not in a million years did I ever think I’d be the lead in anything, let alone be in an action movie beating up bad guys. It’s so much fun. And it’s so ridiculous that this is where I found myself at my advanced age.”
The contemporary story, based on the beloved 1960s television spy series created by Mel Brooks and Buck Henry, shows Maxwell Smart on his first assignment as an agent. For years, Max has worked for the chief (Alan Arkin) of the U.S. spy agency Control as a top-flight analyst fluent in 14 languages, but he was unable to work in the field because of health reasons. But after the evil crime syndicate KAOS masterminds an attack that blows the cover of every agent except for Max and 99, a seasoned veteran who recently had reconstructive facial surgery, the two must team up. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson costars as superstar Agent 23, and Terence Stamp and Kenneth Davitian play evil KAOS operatives Siegfried and Shtarker, respectively. Continue reading

Anne Hathaway has signed on to play opposite Kate Hudson in the romantic comedy Bride Wars. The film will be directed by Gary Winick (13 Going on 30).
Hudson and Hathaway play two best friends who become rivals when they schedule their respective weddings on the same day. They will start shooting early next year.
The plot line has a lot of potential to be a really fun and cute movie. Hopefully, they don’t screw it up for us, cause we’ve been running dry on chick flicks.
