22 Jump Street and The Lego Movie co-director Phil Lord gleefully tweeted out the trailer for a new movie he says he’s behind: a soapy YA film MoonQuake Lake starring a blue-teary eyed Mila Kunis who has the hots for a wife-beater-shirt cum flannel clad dude, played by Ashton Kutcher. Rihanna is also in it, and a mermaid girl who says “Eeee”. MoonQuake smells an awful lot like Twilight, and if you click through the link below, it takes you to Sony’s website for the movie. The parody trailer is actually featured in Will Gluck’s reboot of Annie, which Sony is opening Dec. 19, in a scene where the orphan attends a movie premiere. MoonQuake Lake also refers to a song on the Annie soundtrack performed by Sia & Beck. Whether Lord actually directed the trailer to be inserted into Annie, a Sony rep’s response was “No comment”. Gluck received a special thanks on Lord and Christopher Miller’s Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs.
