Because its characters are all fictional, I don't feel the same total disgust and loathing towards this book as I do towards Abraham Lincon: Vampire Hunter
, but I do view it as being similarly spectacularly juvenile and asinine, and am therefore quite pleased to note that David O. Russell (really
, Three Kings
director Russell? Really?
) and Natalie Portman have left the film project
. They apparently cite scheduling conflicts, but these are two people smart enough to know better than to sully their names with this, and maybe they've wised up to that.
