Kevin Smith ("Clerks") is hard at work writing "The Green Hornet," but he's not sure the comic flick will be his next project. "I actually want to make something a little smaller, a $250,000 movie," said the director, who will write that script next. "I'm not telling anyone [the story line] yet. I like things that are more subtle. Probably a return-to-my-roots-type thing." Smith added he was shocked to hear that "Jersey Girl" co-star Jennifer Lopez had married over the weekend. "It's kind of shocking. I mean, who knew she would want to get married again so soon," he said. "But whatever. She's happy, I'm happy. I won't bet on her. I understand there are odds [on how long the marriage will last]." ...

Carmen Electra, who just returned from shooting a cameo for "Max Havoc: Curse of the Dragon" in Guam, will next appear alongside Vivica A.

Meanwhile, the "Starsky & Hutch" hottie is developing a style show for MTV and may also return to the channel in something with husband Dave Navarro, although "Making the Baby" is out of the question. "It sounds good, but if you really think about it, would any woman want to be on camera after gaining 30 pounds, tired, miserable?" she pondered. "The last few months aren't so easy." ...
