Sometimes I really wonder about Luke Wilson. He'll do a lot of great films, and mix them with a lot of schlock, many of which don't fall under the paycheck defense. Really -- is there any reason, whatsoever, for him to co-star in Blonde Ambition? He's lucky that he's so good in the good stuff, and hopefully his next project will be just that.

Wiping off the blonde idiocy, Variety reports that Wilson has signed on to star in Blowtorch Entertainment's new college comedy -- Tenure. Mike Million makes his feature writing and directorial debut with the project, which has Wilson playing a "beleaguered college professor who competes for tenure with an impressive new female colleague." The female shoes haven't been filled yet, but David Koechner has signed on to play "Wilson's anthropology prof sidekick."

This is part of Blowtorch's initiative to put out "low-budget, youth-oriented movies," so I think it's safe to presume that this will have a lot of young humor in it. This isn't your stodgy university comedy. Production begins next month in Philly.
