It may have taken nearly an entire year after his last film (Paul) hit theaters, but we finally have an update concerning Greg Mottola. During an interview with KidInTheFrontRow (via ThePlaylist), the helmer dropped this little tidbit about his cinematic future: “Campbell Scott and I– we’ve spent a million years working on it, but we wrote a script together that I may try to get made in the next year.” The actor previously collaborated with Mottola on The Daytrippers; screenwriting is new territory for him, however.

Regardless, it’s a new Greg Mottola movie! »

To refresh your memory, the show features a ridiculously stacked cast -- Jeff Daniels, Emily Mortimer, Alison Pill, John Gallagher, Jr., Olivia Munn, Dev Patel, Thomas Sadoski and Sam Waterston -- in the story set in a cable news room, following the exploits of an anchor (Daniels), his new executive producer (Mortimer), his newsroom staff and their boss (Waterston) as they set out on a patriotic and quixotic mission to report the news well in the face of corporate and commercial obstacles, and their own personal entanglements. It sounds fantastic. There was been little word on what his next feature film effort might be, but Mottola recently gave a little hint. »
