    She’s really busy these days. So much for those wacky IMDB posts lamenting her ‘disappearance,’ and ‘why isn’t she acting anymore?’

  2. S Says:

    I agree Peanut Noir :)

  3. Rupert Says:

    noni is back with a vengeance but i wonder what happened to projects like “The Trials Of Maria Barbella”; “Lambs Of God”; and “Roustabout”. I read all those books because I thought she was making them into a movie. Oh well….. at least i got to read good books. maybe they’ll be movies someday and hopefully Winona is the star.
