“Something Borrowed,” the beloved bestseller is now a major motion picture, and author Emily Giffin is behind the project 100%! In this interview, we talked about:
*** Is she happy with the movie version of her popular book?
*** Her message to her readers about the movie
*** Her backstory mirrors the protagonist of her novel/book, Rachel (Ginnifer Goodwin). Like the character, she used to be a lawyer until she defied gravity
*** What she felt when Warner Bros. told her they’re making a movie version of her book
*** She tells me I’m Darcy!
Here's more info on "Something Borrowed" from Yahoo:
Rachel is a talented attorney at a top New York law firm, a generous and loyal friend and, unhappily, still single as her engaged best friend Darcy is constantly reminding her. But after one drink too many at her 30th birthday party, perpetual good girl Rachel unexpectedly ends up in bed with the guy she's had a crush on since law school, Dex, who just happens to be Darcy's fiance. When Rachel and Darcy's lifelong friendship collides with true love, it leads to unexpected complications and potentially explosive romantic revelations. Meanwhile, Ethan, who has been Rachel's constant confidante and sometimes conscience, has been harboring a secret of his own, and Marcus, an irrepressible womanizer, can't keep his mind out of the gutter or his hands off any girl within reach.

No? Yes? Lukewarm? Don't care? Well, whether you like or not, Arnold Schwarzenegger is attached to star in a rights package that will revive the "Terminator" franchise according to Deadline.
The Governator will once again don the leather dominatrix outfit he famously wore in the first three "Terminator" films, and will spout those corny but memorable one-liners. He's baaack, he said.
Tuesday afternoon, the CAA agency dropped the rights package to studios in hopes that one of them will be interested. Apparently, Universal, Sony, Lionsgate, and CBS Films are already looking hard at the package.
Previously, in the "Terminator" world, Sam Worthington stole the show from Christian Bale in the so-so "Terminator Salvation" from director McG. You remember Bale's rants in the film more than the plot of the movie. (Check out my "Terminator Salvation" interviews right here)
Let's see if this planned project will gain traction, but I for one, am kinda, sorta excited to see Schwarzenegger in one of his most iconic roles. Hey, I'm a child of the 80s
