Movie News - Foodfight! and War Inc. aka Brand Hauser: Stuff Happens

Variety is reporting that Hilary Duff's new movie, which was previously known as "War Inc." will now be called "Brand Hauser: Stuff Happens". The movie, which was previously thought to be a drama, is a dark political satire co-written by and starring John Cusack.

There is a lot of contradictory information about this movie coming from different sources, but Variety is the industry leader, so I assume they are pretty reliable. According to the article "Cusack plays an assassin assigned to kill a Middle East oil minister. His cover is that he's producing a big trade show that includes a wedding between a local pop star and a politico, but complications ensue."

It is still unknown what Hilary Duff's role will be. Previous reports had her playing a young reporter who gets romantically involved with Cusack, but now that there is a pop star in the movie it seems like that would be the logical part for her to play. Like many things in Hilary's career right now, I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

Among other Duff movie news, the animated feature Foodfight! has set a tentative release date of November 16, 2007. The movie, which stars the Duff Sisters, Charlie Sheen, and Eva Longoria among others, has had a few different release dates so far, so I expect that it could be moving around quite a bit before finally settling on a weekend.

Hilary Duff and Joel Madden Stalked by Paparazzi Photographer


Hilary Duff claims in court documents that she fears for her life, alleging she and her boyfriend are being stalked by two men -- one a paparazzi and the other a homeless man.

TMZ has obtained court documents, filed today in Los Angeles Superior Court, in which Duff and Good Charlotte frontman Joel Madden claim that a 19-year-old Russian emigre came to the United States "for the sole purpose of meeting and becoming romantically involved with Ms. Duff."

The court documents state the man, whose first name is Max, "admitted to being 'obsessed' with her, has stated his intention of 'removing' his 'enemies' (i.e., those who prevent him from being with her), has stated his intention of purchasing a weapon, and has threatened to kill himself and to engage in dramatic actions to get her attention."

According to the documents, Max "has stated his belief that Hilary is in love with him and that Joel Madden stands in their way."

The court documents also claim David Joseph Klein, a 50-year-old celebrity photographer who is roomates with Max, is also a threat.

The documents state, "Over the past six weeks, the defendants have engaged in an accelerated effort to make contact with Hilary, including visits to her neighborhood, to her mother's home, to her boyfriend's neighborhood ... to Mr. Madden's concert venue, and direct calls to Hilary's manager."

According to the documents, the police detained Max at least once at one of Madden's concerts and questioned Klein at the same event.

The stars are requesting a judge to order Max and David Joseph Klein to stay at least 100 yards away from Hilary Duff, her sister Haylie, Joel Madden and his twin brother Benji.
