Entertainment Tonight has exclusively launched the poster for “Fun Mom Dinner”, which will be released in select theaters and on demand on August 4. ET also has an interview with its writer, Julie Rudd. You’ve met the mom that isn’t like a regular mom, she’s a cool mom. You’ve met the self-proclaimed bad moms. Now it’s time to meet the fun moms of Fun Mom Dinner. To celebrate the unveiling of the movie’s poster, debuting on ET, screenwriter Julie Rudd (yes, her husband is Paul Rudd) phoned ET to introduce us to her mom crew, played by Katie Aselton, Molly Shannon, Toni Collette and Bridget Everett. Here’s what she said about casting Toni Collette:

She’s incredible! I’ve always admired her from afar and think she’s an incredible actress. The fact that she’s in the movie still blows my mind a little bit. When the idea of Toni playing this part was brought up, obviously I thought it was an incredible idea, but I didn’t really understand until she came to set and started inhabiting this part how much she was going to bring to it. She’s got like an inherent toughness, but I don’t want to be misquoted about that! I mean that in the best way! In that way that, when she is around, you just so want her to like you. You so want her to be your friend. She is as cool as can be and she is not trying at all. And so she brought so much more to Kate, because she is the toughest of the four and resistant to being with all these moms and having mom friends. And Toni made Kate so much better than anything I ever could have imagined.

Here comes the very funny theatrical trailer for Amanda Sthers’ comedy “Madame”, starring Toni Collette, Harvey Keitel and Rossy de Palma. Adding a little spice to a waning marriage, Anne and Bob (Toni Collette and Keitel), a wealthy and well-connected American couple move into a manor house in romantic Paris. While preparing a particularly luxurious dinner for sophisticated international friends, our hostess discovers there are 13 guests. Panic-stricken, Anne insists her loyal maid, Maria (de Palma), disguise herself as a mysterious Spanish noblewoman to even out the numbers. But a little too much wine and some playful chat lead Maria to accidentally endear herself to a dandy British art broker (Smiley). Their budding romance will have Anne chasing her maid around Paris and finally plotting to destroy this most unexpected and joyous love affair.” No official US release date, but the film will be released in Australian theaters on August 17, 2017. Screencaptures from the trailer have been added to the photo gallery.

Last week, “XXX: The Return of Xander Cage Blu-Ray” has been released in the United States on demand, DVD, Blu-Ray. It’s not your typical Toni movie, but since there are no typical Toni movies anyway it has been fun to see her doing some popcorn action gun-wielding (that was a spoiler) flick opposite Vin Diesel and a bunch of performances straight out of a video game. Screencaptures from the Blu-Ray as well as from the making of featurette have been added to the photo gallery.

Yet another new project for Toni on the horizon which, once again, sounds very intriguing. According to Deadline, Toni Collette has just optioned the novel and screenplay The Best of Adam Sharp from red hot author Graeme Simsion who also penned The Rosie Project set up over at Tri-Star. Adam Sharp, which is kind of a High Fidelity for 40-somethings, is one of the first that Collette has brought to her newly formed production company Vocab Films. Her producing partner is Jen Turner. The Best of Adam Sharp (published via St. Martin’s Press) is about a man (Adam) on the cusp of fifty who is restless as his marriage has gone stale. He can’t quite forget a romance he had twenty years ago with an intelligent and strong-willed woman named Angelina Brown who taught him what it meant to find—and then lose—love. He wonders how different would his life be if he hadn’t let her go. Out of the blue, he gets a one word email from Angelina. He responds and his life takes a significant turn. Collette will play the lead female role, Angelina.

According to Variety, Whoopi Goldberg and Giancarlo Esposito are set to join Toni Collette and Thomas Haden Church in “Shriver,” a comedy of mistaken identity being introduced to buyers at Cannes by Content Media. The film, directed by Michael Maren, turns on a loner (Church) who is mistaken for a famous author at a literary conference and who falls for the conference organizer (Collette). The man nearly pulls off the deception before the real author shows up and causes havoc. The screenplay, by Maren, is adapted from the novel “Shriver” by Chris Belden. “From the very beginning we just loved the clever premise,” Jamie Carmichael, Content’s president of film said. Josh Kesselman and Alfred Sapse of Thruline are producing.
