Walden names Bostick co-CEO

25 March 2008 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Producer Michael Bostick has been named co-CEO of Walden Media and will share the title and responsibilities with the company's Cary Granat.

Walden Media and sister company Bristol Bay Prods. are divisions of Anschutz Film Group, which, unhappy with the boxoffice performance of many of its films, overhauled both businesses in January, resulting in a dozen layoffs.

Bostick, who joins April 16, will be responsible for the acquisition and development of all future Walden Media and Bristol Bay films other than the company's The Chronicles of Narnia franchise and a few other specific projects that Granat will oversee. The pair will jointly supervise physical production and marketing, with each responsible for films from his development slate. Granat and Bostick report to Anschutz CEO David Weil.

Bostick is an Emmy- and Golden Globe-winning producer who has produced such films as Bruce Almighty, Liar Liar and Evan Almighty. He was associate producer on Apollo 13 and has produced such TV programs as 8 Simple Rules and From the Earth to the Moon.

He had been heading Tom Shadyac's Shady Acres Entertainment. »

New 'Rules' for big screen

7 March 2008 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

NEW YORK -- W. Bruce Cameron's book "8 Simple Rules for Marrying My Daughter," the sequel to his best-seller-turned-hit TV series, will be brought to the big screen by 26 Films and The Devil Wears Prada producer Wendy Finerman.

Cameron is adapting his semi-autobiographical tome into a comedy with co-writer Cathryn Michon, author of the Grrl Genius Guide book series. It offers wry commentary in the same vein as his 2001 book 8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter, the basis of ABC's eponymous series starring the late John Ritter.

Finerman and Wendy Finerman Prods.' Lisa Zupan brought the project to 26 Films, which optioned the book. Finerman is attached to produce the feature with 26 Films principals Michelle Chydzik Sowa and Nathalie Marciano.

Chydzik Sowa said the plot will revolve around a divorced dad juggling a younger girlfriend and two daughters who both get engaged at the same time. Other details haven't been revealed, but the book's subtitle -- "And Other Reasonable Advice From the Father of the Bride (Not that Anyone Is Paying Attention)" -- provides a clue. »

Actress Suzanne Pleshette Dies at 70

21 January 2008 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Actress Suzanne Pleshette, who started out in films such as The Birds but became a television star playing Bob Newhart's wife on The Bob Newhart Show, died Saturday night of respiratory failure at her home in Los Angeles; she was 70. Pleshette had been battling lung cancer since 2006, when she underwent chemotherapy and had part of one lung removed. A fresh-faced beauty with a distinctive, husky voice, Pleshette worked mostly onstage in the 50s, with one of her most notable roles as Annie Sullivan in The Miracle Worker, replacing original star Anne Bancroft. She made her film debut opposite Jerry Lewis in The Geisha Boy and worked steadily in television as she launched her film career. Her most notable screen role was in Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds, where she played a local schoolteacher who befriends out-of-town socialite Tippi Hedren and helps protect the children of the town during one of the film's terrifying bird attacks. In 1964, she married screen heartthrob Troy Donahue, her co-star in the romantic drama Rome Adventure, though the marriage lasted less than a year, and in 1968 married Texas oilman Tommy Gallagher.

Despite a prolific career in film and television, Pleshette gained her fame playing Emily Hartley, the down-to-earth wife of psychiatrist Bob Hartley (Bob Newhart) on the 70's sitcom The Bob Newhart Show, which ran for six years and earned her two Emmy nominations. Pleshette was so well-known as the small-screen wife of Newhart that she reprised her role in an unexpected cameo in the series finale of Newhart's second major sitcom, Newhart. The episode, where Newhart awakens in the bedroom set of his old show with Pleshette by his side (as they often ended episodes of their old show, trading dry banter) is considered one of the most clever, and surprising, series finales in television history. Pleshette continued working in television through the rest of her career, earning another Emmy nomination for playing Leona Helmsley in Leona Helmsley: The Queen of Mean, and made appearances in sitcoms Good Morning Miami, 8 Simple Rules... and Will & Grace (where she played the mother of Megan Mullally's character, Karen Walker). Pleshette also provided the voices of Yubaba and Zeniba in the English language version of Hayao Miyazaki's Oscar-winning animated film Spirited Away. In 2001, after the death of her second husband, Pleshette married actor Tom Poston, whom she had met 40 years ago and who had co-starred in Newhart; they remained married until his death last year. --Mark Englehart, IMDb staff »
