    Would have been a great opportunity for both Mara and Firth to star in this vehicle and now I pretty much have no interest in seeing it now unless they can get some impressive talent better than both Mara and Firth…

  2. Why don’t they just put John Stamos in the lead and get it over with. =D

    It almost feels like Elizabeth Olsen was locked in a room for 15 years until she recently starred appearing in films, so maybe she can relate to the main character :P
