Summit Entertainment (who's responsible for all the Twilight flicks) recently acquired the television and movie rights to the book by psychologist John Gray, which has sold more than 50 million copies since it was released in 1992.
While there are no definitive plans, the announcement is rife with possibilities -- a romantic comedy, a heart-wrenching drama? Perhaps a documentary that profiles real-life Hollywood couples that are clearly from different planets? There are certainly plenty to choose from ...
Take Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, for example. They're perfect to play the leading roles, especially because Tom really may be from Mars (seriously, look at him closely). He and Joey Potter just don't belong together. Katie seems sad much of the time, and Tom seems ... controlling and creepy.
Of course, the mingling of their planets did produce Suri -- one of the cutest babies on this planet.
Besides their will-do-anything-for publicity personas, Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag couldn't look more uncomfortable together. He makes my skin crawl, and she at least used to be a sweet girl from a good family. Clearly, his planet has powers stronger than hers; now poor Heidi looks like she's from another planet.
Perhaps Julia Roberts and Lyle Lovett could reunite? They definitely hold the title for one of, if not the, oddest couples ever. She, the ever-pretty woman; he the not-so-pretty man. If you remember, they wed just three weeks after meeting. No one thought it'd last, but it did ... for 21 months, at least. The planets seem much more aligned for Julia and Danny Moder.
Differences aren't always bad. My favorite odd-but-in-a-good-way couple is Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher. Their 15-year-age difference doesn't seem to affect their affection for one another at all. They've been together since 2003 and are still one of Hollywood's hottest couples.
Which Hollywood odd couples would you like to see in a film version of Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus?
