Mister D: I don’t know whether to believe this or not. There was something about the tone of this piece that bothered me, but sometimes humor doesn’t quite make it to the page without it being misunderstood. I’ve written to my sources but they are going to be knee-deep in Hulaween and movie-making, but hopefully, I’ll know by tomorrow. If Spacek dropped out I have two theories as to why…businesswise. Also. Ms. Ralph, also tweeted out this same article yesterday.
Who’s The Fourth Fabu?
If you’re a famous actress of a certain age, and you can find a script and three other comparable ladies, a movie is in your future.
When the film, directed by Jocelyn Moorhouse, was first announced in 2023, Sissy Spacek was attached. Apparently, she dropped out and was replaced by the dynamo Emmy winner Ralph, who just got an award named for her at Project Angel Food in Los Angeles.
All of this started with “The First Wives Club” years ago. Lately, Jane Fonda headed two movies in the “Golden Girls” category, both hits — “Book Club 2” and “80 for Brady.” More and more of these are being filmed as the audience exists and they love seeing big stars still in their prime. These movies are also great for guys in this age group, too!
