Presidential sweet
Sinbad is drawing crowds at the McLean, Va., mall where he’s filming First Kid, a comedy about a softhearted Secret Service agent who befriends a President’s lonely son. To meet the job’s physical requirements, the comic is sparring off screen with a boxing coach.

Cherchez la femme
TV cross-dressers Dave Foley, Bruce McCulloch, Kevin McDonald, Mark McKinney, and Scott Thompson are crossing over in The Kids in the Hall Movie, now shooting in Toronto. The Kids play more than 50 male and female characters in a farce about a scientist who develops a wonder drug.

Cherchez l’homme
Real women Sharon Stone and Isabelle Adjani play a mistress and wife who murder Adjani’s husband in a remake of 1955’s Diabolique, filming in Pittsburgh soon. As in the original, things get strange once the body disappears.
