14 November 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Jason Schwartzman has been tapped to star opposite Molly Shannon and Chris McDonald in Fox Broadcasting Co.'s midseason comedy Cracking Up, from writer-producer Mike White, 20th Century Fox TV and Brad Grey TV. The actor, known for his starring role in 1998's Rushmore, had been in talks for the role for several months, following the network's decision to release Nick D'Agosto, who played Schwartzman's part in the pilot. Sources said the main difficulty in negotiating the deal was accommodating the production schedule for the series to Schwartzman's commitment to star opposite Steve Martin and Claire Danes in the feature Shopgirl, which is slated to begin production shortly. »

Actress after Martin's eye in 'Shopgirl'

14 October 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Bridgette Wilson-Sampras has joined the cast of Shopgirl, the Hyde Park Entertainment comedy that stars Steve Martin. Wilson-Sampras will play a makeup counter worker who competes for Martin's attention in the film, which is based on the Martin novella. Touchstone Pictures is distributing the film domestically, while 20th Century Fox has picked up the majority of international territories. Shopgirl centers on a girl who sells gloves and other accessories at Neiman Marcus. Feeling useless in her job and unfulfilled by a romantic relationship, she is bowled over when a rich, divorced older man enters her life. The film is being directed by Anand Tucker and co-stars Claire Danes and Jason Schwartzman. The Shopgirl role marks a return to acting for Wilson-Sampras, who had taken some time off after having a baby. Her credits include such comedies as The Wedding Planner and Billy Madison. Wilson-Sampras is repped by Brillstein-Grey Entertainment and Endeavor. »

Paltrow out; Watts eyeing 'Huckabee's'

12 May 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Naomi Watts is in discussions to step into Fox Searchlight's I Love Huckabee's, taking over for Gwyneth Paltrow, who has dropped out of the project. Watts will segue to the film after she wraps production on The Assassination of Richard Nixon with Sean Penn and Don Cheadle, which begins shooting next month. Huckabee's, written and directed by David O. Russell, also stars Mark Wahlberg, Jude Law, Jason Schwartzman, Lily Tomlin, Dustin Hoffman and Catherine Deneuve. The film marks the second project from which Paltrow has departed recently, having dropped out of Stratus Films' Happy Endings before being replaced by Jennifer Garner (HR 5/2). Both departures stem from her need to take time off to grieve the loss of her father, Bruce Paltrow, who died in October while the actress was in production on Ted and Sylvia. In the Huckabee's, Watts' character will find herself in a love triangle with Wahlberg and Law's characters. Watts, repped by CAA and Untitled Entertainment and attorney Steve Warren, is shooting the indie feature Anymore. She next stars in Fox Searchlight's Le Divorce and Focus Features' 21 Grams. »

Rudin on case for Russell film

6 March 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Producer Scott Rudin has come aboard writer-director David O. Russell's next project, with Miramax Films and Warner Bros. Pictures in negotiations to co-produce the untitled feature, sources said. However, a Warner Bros. spokesperson said the studio has made no commitment to the project, while Miramax and Russell's reps at Endeavor declined comment. A Warners-Miramax co-production would make sense, considering Russell's involvement with both studios in the past: Warners distributed his most recent feature, Three Kings, while Miramax was behind his 1996 effort Flirting With Disaster. The untitled project, which has gone by the name of The Existential Detective, would be Russell's follow-up to 1999's Kings, and sources indicated Wednesday that a cast is being assembled that could include Kings star Mark Wahlberg, along with Catherine Deneuve, Dustin Hoffman, Jason Schwartzman and Lily Tomlin. »
