Forest Whitaker Deals With Jessica Biel

Justin Timberlake is dating her. Guys all over the world are in love with her. Jessica Biel is the “it” girl these days. And Forest Whitaker is about to become the envy of many; it looks like he’ll be working with the beautiful actress in the days ahead.

Powder Blue is a new film project that is in the works. Oscar winner Whitaker has signed on to star, alongside Jessica Biel. The film is not scheduled to shoot just yet, but the press has already started humming.

The film is a drama about a mortician, and ex-con, a suicidal ex-priest, and a stripper that find themselves in the company of each other due to a string of circumstances. It takes place on Christmas Eve, which bodes well for a possible holiday release.

I can just imagine the ensemble cast that could possibly fill out the roster. Maybe get Dennis Hopper to play the ex-priest; John Malkovich would make a convincing mortician. Or maybe stick Steve Buscemi in there somewhere. Nevertheless, this film sounds like a winner.

Stay tuned to the Gossip Girls for further announcements about the production/casting of Powder Blue and enjoy the pictures of Jessica out shopping in Manchester on May 17!
