As Team Edward gears up to claim victory over Team Jacob this month when The Twilight Saga: Eclipse finally hits theaters, Twihards let it be known that they're not done celebrating the splendor that was New Moon yet. The vampirific sequel was named Best Movie at the 2010 MTV Movie Awards on Sunday and saw its reach extend into five categories overall, more proof that the young'uns who vote for such things don't give two hoots what critics say, they just want their Ed TV. And it's ironic that there's now an award for Best Wtf Moment, considering the entire telecast itself was, in fact, a chain of Wtf moments. Some were excruciatingly bad (A for effort, host Aziz Ansari) but, happily, many »

Howard hasn't directed a comedy since 1999's "EdTV" so this is a treat! »
THR reports that Ron Howard will return to comedy and direct Vince Vaughn in an upcoming movie. Howard is no stranger to comedy, but hasn't directed one since 1999's EdTV. Howard may have become intrigued with returning to comedy while waiting for the Arrested Development script to be written.
The movie will concern infidelity, as a man learns that his best friend's wife is cheating and must decide what to do with the knowledge. Allan Loeb (Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps) wrote the untitled script, which will continue Vaughn's interest in the darker side of relationships, much like he did in The Break-Up. Vaughn will also produce the movie.

Ron Howard continues to puzzle us. The man has a mountain of colossal films in his pocket ranging from Splash to Apollo 13 to Frost/Nixon, but we're just not sure why he's being attached to certain projects these days. Back in March, our own Erik Davis posted a discussion piece that puzzled over the news that Howard was in talks to helm the film adaptation of the graphic novel The Strange Adventures of H.P. Lovecraft. You know, a hardcore horror tale involving the fundamental forces of evil from the director of Grand Theft Auto.
Now, Variety reports that Howard will be directing an untitled Vince Vaughn comedy about cheating and infidelity. So just to recap, the actor who was just in Couples Retreat is going to be directed by the same man who just gave us The Da Vinci Code and Angels & Demons. Just like Erik, I have »

Ron Howard will direct Vince Vaughn in an untitled dramedy written by Allan Loeb (21, Things We Lost in the Fire), about a "man who learns that his best friend's wife is cheating and must then navigate treacherous waters to decide what do with that knowledge." Vaughn came up with the idea with Imagine topper Brian Grazer. It will be strange to see Howard reverting back to his comedy background (Night Shift, Splash, Parenthood) especially since his recent years he's dealt mostly with more dramatic and action properties (Apollo 13, Ransom, A Beautiful Mind, The Missing, Cinderella Man, The Da Vinci Code, Frost/Nixon, Angels & Demons). And while he was the uncredited narrator and Executive Producer of the beloved comedy television series Arrested Development, his most recent comedy efforts, EDtv and The Grinch Who Stole Christmas, were slammed by both critics and audiences.That said, I think Vaughn works best in »

Universal has a cheating heart.
Imagine topper Brian Grazer came up with the idea and is producing with Vaughn, who will produce with his Wild West Picture Show Prods. Allan Loeb wrote the currently untitled script, which would go before cameras in the spring.
The story follows a man who learns that his best friend's wife is cheating and must then navigate treacherous waters to decide what do with that knowledge.
The project is said to continue Vaughn's interest of tackling the dark areas of relationships, which he did with "The Break-Up" and, to a lesser extent, "Couples Retreat," which ended up leaving its darker moments on the editing room floor. The script is said to walk a fine line of being comedy and drama, »
