I would imagine that if I were Annette Bening, I'd barely bat an eyelid when an announcement comes that I've been nominated for an award. On top of her recent Oscar nominated performance in The Kids Are All Right, Bening has been nominated numerous other times for all kinds of awards (including a Tony). Although I'm sure she's grateful, she seems to always be looking forward to her next project.
And word on what that is comes just over two weeks shy of the day she loses the Oscar to Natalie Portman. Rob Reiner, director of This Is Spinal Tap and The Princess Bride, just told someone over at Showbiz411 that his next project is called The Third Act and that Bening and Morgan Freeman are set to star. The film will feature a political angle in support of gay marriage in the states.
Reiner also said that they haven't begun shooting yet and he is in the process of reworking the script, so this movie is a little ways off yet.
