Interview: Director Greg Berlanti of Katherine Heigl’s ‘Life as We Know It’

5 October 2010 3:23 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – The romantic comedy gets another variation with the new release, “Life As We Know It,” with Katherine Heigl and Josh Duhamel playing opposites who need to attract when thrust into a childcare situation that they didn’t anticipate. The film is directed by Greg Berlanti, who is also the screenwriter to the upcoming “Green Lantern” movie.

Greg Berlanti made a splash in 2000 by writing and directing the cult favorite “The Broken Hearts Club: A Romantic Comedy,” catching much of the cast (Zach Braff, Timothy Olyphant, Nia Long and Jennifer Coolidge) right before their breakout popularity. He went from there to produce popular TV like “Dawson’s Creek,” “Everwood” and “Brothers & Sisters,” and premiered a new show in this fall’s season, “No Ordinary Family.”

In film, he is involved in both writing and producing the new “Green Lantern” film, slated for release in 2011, and is involved in preproduction for “The Flash. »

Life As We Know It Poster

31 August 2010 12:11 PM, PDT | Filmofilia | See recent Filmofilia news »

Warner Bros. has just debuted the first theatrical poster for the new drama comedy Life as We Know It.

Holly Berenson (Katherine Heigl) is an up-and-coming caterer and Eric Messer (Josh Duhamel) is a promising network sports director. After a disastrous first date, the only thing they have in common is their dislike for each other and their love for their goddaughter, Sophie. But when they suddenly become all Sophie has in the world, Holly and Messer are forced to put their differences aside. Juggling career ambitions and competing social calendars, they’ll have to find some common ground while living under one roof.

Christina Hendricks, Josh Lucas and Melissa McCarthy join Duhamel and Heigl in Life as We Know It for supporting roles. This drama comedy is directed by Greg Berlanti (The Broken Hearts Club: A Romantic Comedy).

Berlanti In The Running To Direct The Flash

1 March 2010 3:18 AM, PST | HollywoodNorthReport.com | See recent HollywoodNorthReport.com news »

According to reports, Warner Bros new entertainment division wants Greg Berlanti to direct a big screen adaptation of DC Comics The Flash. Berlanti co-wrote Green Lantern for director Martin Campbell, co-created the TV series Eli Stone and previously directed the feature The Broken Hearts Club: A Romantic Comedy. Created by writer Gardner Fox and illustrator Harry Lampert, the original 'Flash' debuted in "Flash Comics" #1 (January 1940). 'Jay Garrick', nicknamed the 'Scarlet Speedster', possessed 'super-speed', using superhuman reflexes that seemingly violated the laws of physics. Garrick, a college student, gained his speed through the inhalation of hard water vapors, wearing a winged metal helmet reminiscent of the Greek god Hermes (Mercury) . 'Barry Allen', a police scientist, gained his super-speed after being bathed in a shelf of chemicals struck by lightning, adopting "The Flash' name after reading a comic book featuring the Golden Age character. 'Wally West', was originally 'Kid Flash', »

The Flash Movie May Have a New Director

26 February 2010 11:34 AM, PST | FilmJunk | See recent FilmJunk news »

Now that things are moving forward with Green Lantern, and the next Superman movie is finally showing signs of life [1], Warner Brothers are also apparently turning their attention to a big screen version of The Flash as well. After previously changing hands from director David Goyer (Blade: Trinity) to Shawn Levy (Night at the Museum) to David Dobkin (Wedding Crashers), The Flash movie seemed to have fizzled out [2] by late last year. This week, however, IESB [3] is reporting that someone new has finally been assigned to the project, and is looking likely to take over directorial duties as well. According to their sources, Greg Berlanti is currently the frontrunner to helm The Flash -- the same guy who co-wrote the Green Lantern script and previously worked on such TV shows as Everwood and Eli Stone. It certainly seems that the WB likes to re-use talent, particularly in the case of »

Greg Berlanti 'is frontrunner to direct The Flash'

25 February 2010 4:49 PM, PST | The Geek Files | See recent The Geek Files news »

Superhero news from Warner Bros' new DC Entertainment division is certainly picking up speed.

Following yesterday's geekgasm that Batman scribe David Goyer is to write a new Superman movie called The Man of Steel - with The Dark Knight co-writer Jonah Nolan helping on script duties and Christopher Nolan executive-producing - comes another exciting revelation.

IESB is reporting that Warner Bros new DC Entertainment division is also keen to get The Flash up and running on the big screen and that Greg Berlanti is the frontrunner to take on directing duties.

Berlanti co-wrote Green Lantern and was set to direct it before Warner Bros instead opted to put Casino Royale's Martin Campbell in the hotseat.

Berlanti, the co-creator of Us TV series Eli Stone, previously directed The Broken Hearts Club: A Romantic Comedy. His second directing endeavour, a comedy called Life As We Know It, comes out in December. »

Greg Berlanti May Be Directing The Flash

25 February 2010 2:49 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

It looks like The Flash is finally picking up speed as IESB reports that Warner Bros. is interested in getting Greg Berlanti to direct the superhero flick.  For those who don’t know, Berlanti co-wrote another upcoming WB superhero flick, Green Lantern, and was considered to direct before the studio settled on Martin Campbell.  Keep in mind, this is not a confirmation, but IESB says he’s the leading contender to take the job.  Since I imagine most folks (myself included) haven’t seen Berlanti’s 2000 film, The Broken Hearts Club: A Romantic Comedy, his second movie, Life as We Know It, is slated to hit theaters at the end of this year.

For more about how DC Entertainment President Diane Nelson has revived the cinematic opportunities for the company’s cherished superheroes, hit the jump.
