I think the biggest mystery for me about the upcoming movie Whiteout isn’t who committed the first murder in Antarctica, it’s why the hell they would cast Kate Beckinsale in a movie that takes place in temperatures that require you wear a frickin’ bear skin rug at all times.  Shouldn’t they have maybe cast her instead in my spec script, entitled Paul’s Awesome Movie of Awesomeness, where a female detective must infiltrate a nudist colony in the Bahamas, with only a bottle of suntan oil to save her life?  I think that’s much better for Mrs. Beckinsale.  Just sayin’.

Anyway, Whiteout, based on the most excellent graphic novel of the same name (buy it here – it’s written by GREG RUCKA!), Beckinsale plays U.S. Marshall Carrie Stetko, who must investigate a murder before being snowed in with a murderer.
