What if you could get tomorrow’s newspaper today? Personally, I would love knowing it, I think. Sometimes knowing the future isn’t all that it’s cracked up to be.
But in Early Edition, that’s what happens. One lucky (which hey, is subjective – is it really lucky) journalist gets tomorrows newspaper ahead of time. And CBS is rebooting the show.
And with a reboot coming, personally, I will watch it, because it will remind me of my Mom.
Eve will play Beth, who is described as “ambitious but uncompromising.” She’s wanted to be an investigative journalist since she was a child, and will do whatever it takes to get the story. That sometimes puts her at conflict with others, especially her mentor, Tommy, who believes that what is most important about the story, is the people and how they are affected. But Beth has not quite figured out how to balance that in her journalism.
We’re looking forward to seeing how Beth balances everything and figures it all out. And hey, we’re always for Alice Eve in a role.
What do you think? Would you want tomorrows newspaper today?
