Charles Randolph ("The Interpreter") wrote the script, formerly titled "Pharma," which he adapted from Jamie Reidy's nonfiction book "Hard Sell: The Evolution of a Viagra Salesman." Filming is scheduled to begin at the end of September.
Macht plays a hotshot Prozac salesman who's invovled romantically with Maggie (Hathaway), a free-spirited woman with Parkinson's disease who enters into a relationship with charming Viagra salesman Jamie (Gyllenhaal).
Azaria plays an unscrupulous doctor and client of Jamie's, and Platt plays his boss, a beleaguered pharmaceutical rep desperate to boost Jamie's sales.

The Oscars are approaching, and it's time for everyone under the sun to start predicting. Entertainment Weekly put out a rehashing of old Academy Awards this week, and allegedly had members of the Academy recast their votes. It's a cute and meaningless claim, and they picked an odd assortment of mostly uninteresting years, but it isn't a terrible idea. So inspired, I'm going to go back through the Oscars, five years at a time, on a somewhat weekly basis. I'm going to include the screenplay categories, and in order that these not be too outrageously long (they are going to be somewhat outrageously long) I won't include everything. The categories with nothing much to say about the winners or the losers are... well, that's what they are. I will perhaps branch out into movies which weren't even nominated as well. Shall we? Oh, and I'm only starting with 2000. 2000 Image via »
