New Line Cinema is set to produce a romantic comedy based on Hockey star Sean Avery's recent experiences last summer as an intern at Vogue and guest editor at Men's Vogue.
A great self penned article about his Conde Nast experiences can be read on the Men's Vogue website via this link. A slide show of the accompanying images can be seen here. The images were taken by photographer Hannah Thompson and feature Avery in his own clothes.

He told the Hollywood Reporter that he's always been a fashionista. "I was always trying to be the best-dressed kid in school".
He doesn't really care about not fitting the stereotypes of sports, stating "I think it's great to be into something that you care about. But I'm still an athlete who likes to beat the crap out of people." The original Reuters article can be read via this link.
Mr. Avery is no longer with the New York Rangers but now is with the Dallas Stars. He has been called a "Cougar Chaser". It was rumored that he was dating Calvin Klein's ex wife photographer Kelly Klein (nee Rector) who is 51 years old.
Would you go to watch this film??? Who do you think should play Avery??? Should Avery make a cameo appearance??? Yay or Nay???
