It Pays to be Blunt

Like It Girls Anne Hathaway and Amy Adams before her, Emily Blunt is suddenly everywhere.

Now that she's proven her star power in The Devil Wears Prada, The Jane Austen Book Club, Charlie Wilson's War and Dan in Real Life (hello, Ruthie "Pigface" Draper!), Blunt has two major studios vying for her time this coming spring.  Marvel Entertainment wants her to play a Russian spy who doubles as the dangerous Black Widow in Iron Man 2, while Twentieth Century Fox intends to cast her as a Lilliputian princess in Gulliver's Travels.  The problem is that both films begin shooting at essentially the same time.  Fox currently has the upper hand, however, as part of her contract for The Devil Wears Prada included a clause that gave the studio rights to cast her in one of their future films.

So what is this belle of the ball to do?  Get "her people" to work it out so that she can take part in both projects, naturally.  Even though Emily would have to join Jack Black and Jason Segel in the UK in March for GT and then hop over to LA for Iron Man 2 less than a month later (with several trips back and forth afterward), it's looking likely that we'll be seeing Blunt in both sure-to-be blockbusters. In the meantime, she'll be gracing the silver screen with her presence in five (?!?) different films this year — Sunshine Cleaners, The Young Victoria, The Great Buck Howard, Wild Target and The Wolf ManI'm getting tired just reading about her skyrocketing career.

On that note, how will her busy schedule affect her new relationship with John Krasinski (Leatherheads, The Office)?  After all, she broke up with her ex-boyfriend, crooner Michael BublĂ©, because they were never able to see each other.  If I were Krasinski and wanted to hold on to Miss Thang, I'd get ready to earn a ton of frequent flyer miles…

    Emily and Buble split up because he was [fiddling around with] another woman.
