Hollywood hotshots Blake Lively, Taylor Momsen and Lindsay Lohan are in talks with Hollywood production company Rehab Pictures International about multi-million dollar leading roles in upcoming movie Girls Behaving Badly.
The trio would be the Hollywood dream ticket for scriptwriting partnership, Brent Weston Trellis and Herbert Shelby Junior, who labored on the project for eight years, without a lead trio in mind.
Early press releases divulge that the movie focuses on three wannabe starlets sharing a Hollywood apartment, and their trials and tribulations as they attempt to make it big and live the American dream.
How the story pans out is one of Tinseltown's most closely guarded secrets, even Lively, Momsen and Lohan have had to sign papers threatening legal action if they disclose any details about the script, and security guards have been hired to keep tabs on the precious draft copies.
"This is an exciting development," Aaron Kosminsky, CEO of Rehab Pictures International told a packed press conference at the Beverly Wilshere Hotel. "When Brent and Herbert began work on the project, they didn't have leads in mind, but as they honed the script, and as time elapsed, Blake, Taylor and Lindsay kind of came to the forefront, and they're all pretty obvious choices. If they accept the roles, we're hoping to go into pre-production sometime in 2013, and we're looking at a 2015 release date. Of course, nothing has been agreed yet, until the appropriate legal teams have been consulted, but I'm reasonably confident that this project will be sweeping the board at the 2016 Academy Awards."
Critics of the project aren't quite as enthusiastic, with many being of the opinion that the plot, or what they know of it, which appears to be very little, looks like being a re-hashed version of 60's classic, Valley Of The Dolls.
"It sounds like Valley Of The Dolls. With vampires, pirate ships, a corrupt corporation and greedy property developers. With a little golf tossed into the mix," one said.
"Gangsters too," added another. "And Crips. You can't have a 21st Century movie without the mafia and Crips getting involved somewhere down the line."
