A political satire with Al Gore's daughter, Kristin Gore, onboard as one of the writers? Now that is interesting! Even more, Jake Gyllenhaal and Jessica Biel have been picked up to co-star.
Jake Gyllenhaal, Jessica Biel for Nailed
Biel would play Sammy Joyce, a socially awkward small-town receptionist who has a nail accidentally shot into her head by a clumsy workman, eliciting wild sexual urges.
The uninsured Joyce goes on a crusade to Washington to fight for the rights of the bizarrely injured. She meets an immoral congressman (Gyllenhaal) who takes advantage of her sex drive and capitalizes on her crusade as Joyce heads into her own career in politics.
Neither actor has signed on just yet, as their commitment depends on their other projects. Gyllenhaal was recently attached to star in Doug Liman's untitled Moon project and Jim Sheridan's Brothers with Tobey Maguire.
Biel's schedule is also tight, as she is slated to star in and produce the crime thriller Die a Little for United Artists.
David O. Russell will direct Nailed. A 1980s political activist, the director helmed Three Kings. For those who love gossip, he and Clooney almost came to blows during Kings' production.
