NL 'Planet' draws Paul, Daurio

31 December 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

New Line Cinema has tapped the writing team of Cinco Paul and Ken Daurio to adapt the comic book Planet Terry for the big screen. The project, which New Line pre-emptively acquired from comic book creator Rob Liefeld in July, is based on what was to be an online comic series for Liefeld. The specific story line is being kept under wraps, but it is described as a buddy action comedy with a sci-fi element. Neal Moritz is producing Planet Terry, while Brooklyn Weaver is executive producing. New Line production executives Kent Alterman, Keith Goldberg and Michelle Weiss are overseeing for the studio. Paul and Daurio penned such films as The Santa Clause 2 and Bubble Boy. The duo also recently wrote Dinner for Schmucks for DreamWorks, Car Wars for Warner Bros. Pictures and Special at MGM. They are repped by the Gersh Agency and the Radmin Co. »

'Elf' brings holiday cheer at top spot with $26.3 mil

18 November 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

New Line's Elf loomed large at the boxoffice in North America this weekend as the Christmas holiday-themed comedy took the industry by surprise and stepped up from second place, where it debuted a week earlier, into the top spot with $26.3 million. The PG-rated picture, starring Will Ferrell and helmed by Jon Favreau, proved to have some sturdy legs indeed as it slipped a trifling 15% from its opening. Elf, which marks the first release from Guy Walks Into a Bar Prods., has tagged $70.4 million in 10 days. In a similar vein, Buena Vista's The Santa Clause 2 was released last November and took in $29 million on its debut, dropped a scant 15% on its second frame, and went on to gross $139.2 million domestically. But overall, the total boxoffice in North America was $132.2 million, down 23% from the comparable session a year earlier when Warner Bros. Pictures' Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets conjured up a sterling $88.4 million. »
