Ellen Degeneres to Play Mother Nature in New Film

Somehow it makes perfect sense that Mother Nature is a lesbian. Via The Hollywood Reporter:

Ellen "The project is being penned by "Sex and the City" writer-executive producer Jenny Bicks. In the film, which springs from an original concept inside Walden, the Emmy-winning talk show host will return to Earth for the first time since the planet's creation. No word yet on whether Mother Nature likes to dance. 'I've always wanted to control the weather,' DeGeneres said. 'Nothing will stop me from doing this ... neither rain, nor snow, nor sleet. ... I may be thinking of the postal service -- but I'm really excited about the movie.' Walden execs Michael Bostick and Evan Turner will oversee the project. The company is fast-tracking it for a potential summer shoot in L.A. while DeGeneres is on hiatus. Family-friendly Walden Media produced the 'Chronicles of Narnia' series, 'Journey to the Center of the Earth' and 'Charlotte's Web.' Its forthcoming slate includes 'Tooth Fairy' with Dwayne Johnson and 'Ramona & Beezus,' adapted from the Beverly Cleary books."

  1. Mother Nature returns to Earth for the first time since it's creation?

    Ugh, ugh, ugh. The idea sounded promising until I read that statement. Clearly, this is not going to be a film grounded in science.

  2. I thought Wladen was a Christian outfit. Maybe they are not all bigots.

  3. An aging Baby Butch who thinks-she's-funny-but-she's-not as Mother Nature? Yeh, kinda makes since when you think of natural disasters. Certainly explains her "little duckies and horses" above-all obsession.

    But, hey, look at it this way: now she'll have even MORE money NOT to give to overturn Prop H8TE.

  4. Used to be a big fan of Ellen, he way with the common folk, and the such. She's changed, in that, it seems as though, promoting Porti's series,and all of the wonderful things that are happening to Ellen's career. Seems kinda uppity now, seeing all the valuble things she can afford, and I get my groceries from dumpsters. Something morally wrong with this picture?What happened to your love of the common folks, who so love you?

  5. I'm glad an openly gay person is getting a major part in a big movie.

  6. Sadly I have to agree with the comments about Ellen become a classist.

  7. She's starting to look a little Glenn Close.

  8. She's playing a period?

  9. Or, perhaps she's playing that not so fresh feeling, because she isn't anymore.

  10. You guys are harsh!

  11. I sense a few aging queens have gathered at the watering hole to make their mourning comments.
