Even if you haven't seen the schmaltzy 1981 movie 'Endless Love,' chances are you're at least familiar with the classic Diana Ross/Lionel Richie duet it spawned. And, that makes sense. The song was wildly popular; the movie was not (Roger Ebert called it "a narrative and logical mess"). Despite that, Universal has pressed ahead with a remake and...it's about as melodramatic as you'd expect.
Director Lee Daniels brought us Nicole Kidman peeing on Zac Efron in 'The Paperboy,' a potential Oscar contender in 'Lee Daniels' The Butler,' and now he wants to push the envelope a bit more. He's developing an "interracial love affair action movie" with 'Magic Mike' star Alex Pettyfer in mind for a lead role as one-half of a gay 'Mr. and Mrs. Smith'-type couple. Well, if that doesn't rile up One Million Moms or Westboro Baptist Church, what will?
