If you could spend the end of the world with anyone from Hollywood, wouldn't Drew Barrymore be a delightful choice? I mean, she's adorable, and she never wants to be a bummer, you guys. That's why she's chosen The End as her second movie as a director (after Whip It), an apocalyptic ensemble movie that doesn't focus on the people trying to survive the catastrophe (dummies!), but the ones who are like "Fuck it," and are celebrating their last day on Earth. Barrymore also has How to be Single and Heist Society on her plate to direct. (via Women and Hollywood)

    Sounds like Last Night

    Not that there’s anything wrong with yet another apocalypse movie, whether it’s a tale of survival or surrender. Just thought I’d mention it. :)

    Ditto on Last Night. A great, tiny film – not be confused with About Last Night.

    Yup.  The 1998 “Last Night”

    Although Drew’s sounds more up beat?  We’ll know when we see it.

    Also sounds a bit like Melancholia (

    I haven’t seen it, but it appears to be about how depressed people handle stress better, cause who the fuck cares about the world ending when you’re depressed, I guess.

    Not going to be a remake of the hi-larious suicide comedy The End starring Burt Reynolds? *pout*

    Last night was a truly brilliant little movie.
