Vanessa Redgrave Redgrave and Rudin Love Venus

Queer movie mogul Scott Rudin's upcoming project Venus has him working with acclaimed British screenwriter Hanif Kureishi – the man who penned the gay-themed 1980s touchstone, My Beautiful Laundrette – as well as legendary British actors Peter O'Toole, Vanessa Redgrave, and Leslie Phillips. Venus' adult-themed plot revolves around two aging, veteran actors whose worlds are turned upside down by the arrival in their lives of a brash, difficult teenager. With Redgrave in her late 60s and O'Toole in his early 70s, the studio responsible for marketing this film might have that most elusive of all movies - the kind that attracts audiences from 17 to 70. Director Roger Michell (Notting Hill) is shooting now for a planned 2006 release.

Janice Dickinson Janice Dickinson's Latest Project

The self-proclaimed "World's First Supermodel" may be out of the picture on America's Next Top Model, but Janice Dickinson will soon be back on-screen with cable network Oxygen. The 52-year-old former model – who has written three books about her wildly adventurous life, which has included lesbian liaisons, and who was the sharpest-tongued judge on the first seasons of Top Model – has a new reality series with the working title The Janice Dickinson Project. The 10-episode show will follow Dickinson as she launches a modeling business, guides new models through the brutal beauty business, and juggles a home life of bringing up her two children. Expect plenty of outrageous comments and visits to the plastic surgeon from the brash, opinionated Dickinson when the series premieres later this spring.

Kristanna Loken Kristanna Loken Enters the Dungeon

Lesbians who keep up with the tabloids know the name Kristanna Loken. The former model, whose biggest screen moment was as the sexy, murderous android in Terminator 3, is best-known off-camera as the blonde beauty photographed making out with pop star Pink in a Monte Carlo nightclub a couple of years back. This year, though, will bring Loken's film work – she doesn't talk about her personal life – back into the spotlight. Coming up is the indie film Lime Salted Love and the fantasy-adventure In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale. The latter is from director Uwe Boll, co-stars Jason Statham, Ray Liotta, and Matthew Lillard, and is set for a late 2006 release. Meanwhile, Loken-lovers can get their fix from the vampire thriller BloodRayne, currently in theaters, co-starring Lost's Michelle Rodriguez, directed by Boll, and penned by lesbian screenwriter Guinevere Turner.

Angelica Huston Duffs Meet Hiltons in Material Girls

What would happen if Paris and Nicky Hilton lost all their money? That's the delicious question posed in the upcoming comedy Material Girls, which recently completed shooting. Hilary and Haylie Duff co-star as a pair of fictional-but-oh-so-familiar shopaholic socialites, beyond-rich heiresses to a cosmetics fortune. When a scandal and criminal investigation bankrupt the company, the silver-spoon duo are stripped of their wealth and are forced to experience poverty, possibly even – gasp! – actual jobs. Martha Coolidge (If These Walls Could Talk 2) directs, with the Duffs ably supported by Angelica Huston, Brent Spiner, Lukas Haas and Maria Conchita Alonso. Look for the rich snobs to really get what they deserve later this year.

  • Romeo San Vicente has made out with several male celebrities. Guess which ones.
