Sorvino says: "The day we penned the first five pages was so exciting. We'd been talking about it for years, but then one day we just hired a babysitter to take the kids to the museum and sat there and banged stuff out." Yes, that means that she wrote it with her aspiring actor husband. If you can't find a good gig -- pen one with your Oscar-winning wife! Whether this just remains the couple's dream, or becomes a reality, remains to be seen. I imagine they're just trying to drum up some buzz to take to studios.
Meanwhile, you can catch Sorvino in Multiple Sarcasms later this year, which has her starring with a pretty sweet cast -- Timothy Hutton, Dana Delany, Stockard Channing, Chris Sarandon, Mario Van Peebles, and Joan Jett.
