New Line Lines Up Two New Flicks

Variety reports two new films on the slate for New Line Cinema from two diverse directors. Mark Waters (pictured) will helm "The Ghosts of Girlfriends Past," while Neil Jordan has been tapped to take on "Killing on Carnival Row."

Jordan, who most recently wrote and directed Breakfast on Pluto, will rewrite Carnival before shooting begins. It's based on "a Victorian city inhabited by humans, faeries, elves and vampires, with a detective pursuing a serial killer." He's got to wrap on his upcoming flick first. The Brave One, starring Jodie Foster and Terrance Howard, is due out this year.

Waters' has movies like Mean Girls and Just Like Heaven under his belt already, and The Spiderwick Chronicles hits theaters in 2008. Matthew McConaughey is set to star in Girlfriends, about a guy who attends his younger brother's wedding only to see..well...ghosts of his past girlfriends.

Neither movie will get underway until next year, though, so let the waiting begin.
