Jim Carrey On Board To Muck Up Jason Reitman's Winning Streak

· Jason Reitman will direct Jim Carrey in Pierre Pierre for Fox Atomic, a "politically incorrect story centers on a self-indulgent French nihilist who transports a stolen painting from Paris to London." The challenging role will require Carrey to stretch as never before, with several scenes written to be spoken through the ass in fluent French. [Variety]
· Seth Rogen, meanwhile, is attached to Warner Bros.'s Observe and Report, about "a deluded, self-important head of mall security who squares off in a turf war against the local cops." We don't know why. We just think he can do this. [Variety]

· At last, Beyoncé returns to the big screen, in Obsessed, a Screen Gems thriller loosely based on those gruesome Connect Four murders you probably remember reading about a few months back. [Variety]
· Someone named Gravy will play Notorious B.I.G. in the Fox Searchlight biopic Notorious. We've never heard of Gravy, but his name is Gravy, and that's really all we need to know. Well done, Fox Searchlight casting people! [Variety]
· Thanks to its American Idol lead-in, Fox's new drama New Amsterdam wins its Tuesday night time slot, the tale of a detective incapable of dying dovetailing nicely with an hour spent with the deceptively resilient Paula Abdul. [THR]
