MGM taking 'Pleasure' in North America

22 September 2006 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

NEW YORK -- In something of a coup for producer-financier GreeneStreet Films and fellow producers Fugitive Films, MGM has nabbed all North American rights to the romantic comedy The Pleasure of Your Company. Writer-director Michael Ian Black's feature, which had its world premiere this month at the Toronto International Film Festival, centers on an unlucky guy (Jason Biggs) who dresses up like cupid to propose to his girlfriend and ends up scaring her to death. With some goading from a friend, he gives romance another try by spontaneously proposing to a waitress (Isla Fisher), only to experience more misadventures on the road to love. Edward Herrmann, Joe Pantoliano, Joanna Gleason, Margo Martindale and Rob Corddry round out the cast. Black created the TV series Stella and starred in The Baxter and Wet Hot American Summer. Pleasure and the Vietnam war thriller Rescue Dawn are the only two films in this month's Toronto fest to be picked up by a major distributor -- in both cases, MGM. After serving as a distribution arm for companies such as the Weinstein Co. and Bauer Martinez, MGM in its latest moves is acquiring more features of its own like Pleasure. »

Corddry waxes for 'Glen'

9 February 2006 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

The Daily Show correspondent Rob Corddry has landed the title role in Fox's comedy pilot Becoming Glen, while Angie Harmon has been tapped to star in ABC's drama pilot Secrets of a Small Town. On the pilot pickup front, ABC and NBC have ordered two comedies each. Becoming Glen, from 20th Century Fox TV, Ricky Blitt and Seth MacFarlane, centers on a successful fortysomething man who looks back at 1994, when he was a 32-year-old slacker (Corddry) living with his parents and spending all his time lying on the couch watching TV. It's been a very successful pilot season for brothers Rob and Nathan Corddry, both members of the fake news team of Comedy Central's Daily Show. Last week, Nathan Corddry was cast in another high-profile pilot, Aaron Sorkin and Thomas Schlamme's drama for NBC, Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip. »
