Judd Apatow To Direct Train Wreck, Which Hopefully Won’t Be One

27 November 2013 11:59 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Prolific comedy writer, producer and director Judd Apatow is about to heml his fifth film. Titled Train Wreck, it will star stand-up comic and Comedy Central darling Amy Schumer, who also wrote the script, which The Hollywood Reporter cites is about “a basket case who tries to rebuild her life.” Casting for the film is now underway, just as Apatow oversees the final touches on Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues.

Although his last directorial efforts, Funny People and This is 40, got a chilly audience reception and saw modest box office success, Apatow is still one of the most trustworthy names in comedy cinema. The good news is that he has been a helping hand to many funny females. Cases in point: Lena Dunham’s buzzy HBO comedy/drama Girls (that Apatow produces) and helping three very funny women – writers Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo, and actress Melissa McCarthy – land Oscar nominations for Bridesmaids. »

Rainn Wilson played Walt in live reading of 'Breaking Bad' pilot script

24 July 2013 11:56 AM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Before "Breaking Bad" enters its final, thrilling, shocking run, some stars wanted to take a trip down memory lane and go all the way back to the pilot. Remember when Walt, nearly naked and alone out in the desert, thought he was about to be caught with a mobile meth lab and three bodies (two dead, one unconscious), so he recorded a cryptic farewell to his family before almost taking his own life? A lot happened in that first episode, huh? 

Tuesday night (July 23) at the Lacma, a live-read of that very first episode's script took place with some surprising actors taking on the roles made famous by Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul, et al. -- and the endeavor was made all the more intimidating thanks to the fact that original cast members Cranston, Paul, Anna Gunn, R.J. Mitte, Bob Odenkirk, and series creator Vince Gilligan were in the audience »

Katie Dippold: 'It's a great time to be a woman in the film industry right now' | Interview

20 July 2013 4:04 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The scriptwriter has become 'the silent killer' of a new wave of female-driven Us comedy. She wrote scripts for the acclaimed sitcom Parks and Recreation, and now her film debut, The Heat, starring Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy as cop buddies, is tipped to be this summer's smash hit

When Katie Dippold was 12, she put on her first standup show at home. The audience wasn't huge: the only spectator was her mother.

"It was so painfully terrible," Dippold says. "Things that are funny in real life, if you transcribe them on to the page, aren't necessarily funny. I tried telling a funny story about a car alarm. My mom was politely smiling. It was just… so painful." Recoiling from the memory, she squirms in her chair. "I never did standup again."

But standup's loss turned out to be scriptwriting's gain. Dippold, who grew up in New Jersey and San Francisco, »

Review: 'Girl Most Likely' Starring Kristen Wiig, Darren Criss, Annette Bening & Matt Dillon

16 July 2013 2:56 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

In 2011's "Bridesmaids," former 'SNL' star Kristen Wiig crafted the perfect vehicle for her comedic talents. The screenplay (which she co-wrote with fellow Groundling Annie Mumolo) allowed the comedienne to display her comedy chops and also flex some previously unseen dramatic muscles. Her character in the film was kind of a screw up who blamed others for her problems and for all the film's broader moments, there was still a core of emotional truth. In the year since that film's runaway success the actress has no doubt had countless paycheck roles lobbed at her. But so far she's only appeared onscreen in a supporting role in "Friends With Kids" (alongside many of her "Bridesmaids" costars) and now "Girl Most Likely" (formerly "Imogene"), the latest from filmmakers Robert Pulcini & Shari Springer-Bergman ("American Splendor," "The Nanny Diaries"). The film opens with a brief prologue in New Jersey with a young »

How female actors are rewriting Hollywood's script

11 July 2013 4:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

More and more women in Hollywood are fed up being typecast as ditzy girlfriends or chainsaw fodder and instead are becoming screenwriters as well, writing their own films

A couple of years ago, I interviewed Kristen Wiig, who is something of a heroine of mine, and spent much of the time circling around a question that begged to be asked: how come an actor as brilliant as her is consigned to bit parts and lame roles? I didn't quite put it like that, but it's a question that regularly comes up with women actors and the answer is invariably the same. "It's not that there aren't good roles for women, there just aren't enough," Wiig replied, trying not to sound too whingey. She was, after all, promoting Paul, the blokey alien comedy in which she gamely played Simon Pegg's underwritten "love interest". But Wiig revealed she was taking matters »

Kristen Wiig: sequel to Bridesmaids won't happen with me

2 July 2013 3:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Star of 2011 hit says second movie would have made a lot of money but wouldn't have been right thing to do artistically

Kristen Wiig has ruled out appearing in a potential Bridesmaids sequel. The actor told Harper's Bazaar she turned down a sequel to 2011's box office smash because it wouldn't have been the right thing to do artistically. "It wasn't a hard decision," she said. "We knew during the first one, this was it. We would have made a lot of money if there was a second one, but that's not my goal in my creative life."

Talk of a sequel to the bachelorette comedy, which took almost $300m (£200m) globally on a $30m budget and made stars of Wiig and Melissa McCarthy, has re-emerged following the release of The Heat in the Us at the weekend. The Heat is directed by Bridesmaids' Paul Feig and stars Sandra Bullock »

'Bridesmaids' Sequel: Kristen Wiig Explains Why She Said No to Potential Follow-up

1 July 2013 4:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Amid murmurings of a "Bridesmaids" sequel in the works, including one without original star and co-writer Kristen Wiig, Wiig has revealed why she said no to what would have been a lucrative franchise.

"We knew during the first one, this was it," she explains in a new profile article for Harper's Bazaar. "We would have made a lot of money if there was a second one, but that's not my goal in my creative life."

The actress, who also has three comedies hitting theaters later this year -- "Girl Most Likely" (out July 19), "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty" (out this Christmas), and "Anchorman 2" (also out in December) -- adds that it "wasn't a hard decision."

Sequel talk gained momentum as the comedy raked in nearly $300 million at the box office, with director Paul Feig expressing an interest in signing on for more. However, the potential follow-up's future became »

Kristen Wiig: Turning down 'Bridesmaids' sequel 'wasn't a hard decision'

30 June 2013 4:12 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

In summer 2011, Bridesmaids took the box office by storm, and talk immediately turned to a sequel. The studio wanted it and fans wanted it, but the one person who wanted nothing to do with it was writer/star Kristen Wiig.

Fast-forward almost two years, and Wiig stands by that choice.

“It wasn’t a hard decision,” she told Harper’s Bazaar for a profile in the July issue. “We knew during the first one, this was it. We would have made a lot of money if there was a second one, but that’s not my goal in my creative life. »

Kristen Wiig: 'I turned down Bridesmaids 2'

28 June 2013 8:53 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Kristen Wiig has revealed that she turned down a major offer to star in Bridesmaids 2.

There has been much speculation about a Bridesmaids sequel since the film made $288 million (£189 million) at the box office, with Melissa McCarthy and Maya Rudolph both expressing interest in returning.

Wiig has now revealed to Harper's Bazaar that she and writing partner Annie Mumolo were in fact offered a sequel, but chose not to pursue the project.

"It wasn't a hard decision," Wiig explained to the publication.

She went on to explain: "We knew during the first one, this was it. We would have made a lot of money if there was a second one, but that's not my goal in my creative life."

Wiig went on to admit that it's odd for her to be playing romantic leads in movies, given that she played such bizarre characters on Saturday Night Live for many years. »

ABC Comedy Pilot ‘Middle Age Rage’ Stays Alive WIth Cast Options Extension

27 June 2013 4:05 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Exclusive: ABC is keeping single-camera comedy pilot Middle Age Rage in contention by extending the options on the cast until September so it has more time to contemplate the project’s future. Created by Cheryl Holliday, Middle Age Rage stars Annie Mumolo as a middle-aged wife and mother who is fed up with feeling invisible and begins to speak up and demand the respect she feels she’s earned. The Amblin TV/ABC Studios pilot flew largely under the radar until it started getting positive feedback after it was delivered to the network. Middle Age Rage was among the large pool of half-hour pilots that were in the running at ABC this year. The network and ABC Studios also tried to get another well-received comedy pilot that didn’t make the cut in May, Bad Management, picked up to series through an alternative production model but the idea didn’t pan out. »

‘The Heat’ Helmer Paul Feig Gets Honest Laughs

13 June 2013 2:15 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In a town where lying is art form, Paul Feig is a fervent believer in honesty.

That’s why there are more than 180 times in which some form of the word “fuck” is used his upcoming action comedy “The Heat,” mostly by Melissa McCarthy’s detective character. For his part, Feig is unapologetic.

“Comedy is only really funny when it feels honest,” he says. “So that’s the way people talk these days — people don’t hold back language-wise.”

Feig’s faith in truth — comedic or emotional — has been a guidepost in his evolution from standup to writer-director in TV and then film.

In “The Heat” (opening June 28), McCarthy’s foul-mouthed cop is matched with Sandra Bullock’s uptight FBI agent.

“At our test screenings, people would say ‘It’s such a sweet movie,’ despite the language, and I think that’s because it’s so organic to her character, »

Paul Feig Talks ‘Bridesmaids,’ Deleted Matt Damon Cameo

Matt Damon…in “Bridesmaids”?

Director Paul Feig recently spoke about the genesis of the famous food-poisoning sequence in Universal’s hit comedy at April’s Nab Show in Las Vegas and said the original script featured none other than the “Bourne Ultimatum” star.

“There was a sequence that Kristen (Wiig) and Annie (Mumolo) had written, which was funny, but it (involved) trying on the dresses, and then Kristen’s character had this fantasy about what would she would do in this dress. It was really funny, but it was crazy: It was about running through the woods and suddenly Matt Damon shows up….

“But tonally, it just didn’t fit in the movie. It would be weird to suddenly go into somebody’s brain, because we were trying to be so realistic with it. And we were wondering what do we do, and so Judd (Apatow) just popped in and said, »
