According to Deadline, Ethan Hawke, Rose Byrne and Chris O’Dowd are to star in Juliet, Naked, an adaptation of British author Nick Hornby’s novel from director Jesse Peretz (My Idiot Brother) and screenwriters Tamara Jenkins (The Savages) and Jim Taylor (Sideways).
Published in 2009, Juliet, Naked has been compared to Hornby’s second novel High Fidelity and is described as “a heartwarming romantic comedy about love and life’s second chances and follows the story of long-suffering Annie (Byrne), her music obsessed boyfriend Duncan (O’Dowd), and music star Tucker Crowe (Hawke), the object of Duncan’s obsession.”
“Reminiscent of Bridget Jones, Juliet, Naked pairs Nick Hornby’s signature charm and humor, showcased in High Fidelity and About a Boy, with the incredible talent behind some of romantic comedy’s biggest successes,” said Thorsten Schumacher of Rocket Science.

Casting for Jesse Peretz’s Juliet, Naked movie is well underway, and Deadline reports that the adaptation has set sights on Ethan Hawke, Rose Byrne and Irish actor Chris O’Dowd to fill out key roles in the preliminary cast.
A big-screen take on Nick Hornby’s eponymous best-seller, it’s understood Tamara Jenkins (The Savages) and Jim Taylor (Sideways) have been elected to pen the adaptation, with revisions by Phil Alden Robinson and Evgenia Peretz. It’s got all the hallmarks of an ensemble dramedy, too, with the official snippet teeing up a “heartwarming romantic comedy about love and life’s second chances and follows the story of long-suffering Annie (Byrne), her music obsessed boyfriend Duncan (O’Dowd), and music star Tucker Crowe (Hawke), the object of Duncan’s obsession.”
Even from the fleeting logline alone, it’s not too difficult to see why Juliet, Naked is oft compared »

Hollywood is rarely in search of the new, so each year brings a longer list of adapted screenplays and a shorter list of originals.
Sundance launched American indie-in-Paris Whit Stillman’s witty adaptation of an early epistolary Jane Austen novella, “Love & Friendship,” which boasted rave reviews for Kate Beckinsale as a bitchy gold-digging mom, and long legs at the arthouse box office ($14 million).
Veteran indie distributor James Schamus returned to his first love, screenwriting, for his well-reviewed directorial debut “Indignation,” adapting the Philip Roth novel about college love, which performed modestly at domestic arthouses ($3.3 million). Lesser-known “Indignation” fared better with Roth than rookie director-star Ewan McGregor and writer John Romano’s film version of the better-known novel “American Pastoral.”
Writer-director Rebecca Miller’s sixth feature, sophisticated New York comedy of manners “Maggie’s Plan,” earned strong kudos at Toronto and Sundance but scored modestly on the specialty circuit ($3.5 million). Woody Allen aside, »

Nicolas Cage has already appeared in four feature films this year: the crime film “The Trust” opposite Elijah Wood and Sky Ferreira; Paul Schrader’s “Dog Eat Dog,” which premiered at this year’s Cannes Film Festival; Oliver Stone’s political thriller “Snowden”; and Mario Van Peebles’ war film “USS Indianapolis: Men of Courage.” Yet, Cage has one more film on the horizon for 2016, and it’s easily the most bizarre out of his diverse slate: Larry Charles’ “Army of One,” about a man who travels to Pakistan to hunt down Osama bin Laden on a mission from God. Check out some exclusive stills from the film below.
Based on a true story as reported by GQ in 2010, the film follows Garry Faulkner (Cage), an ex-con and handyman who sees a vision of God »

The dark comedy also stars Robert Pine, Sam Anderson and Paul Feig, director of “Ghostbusters,” “Spy” and “Bridesmaids.” The film follows the life of the repressed Fred Trolleycar, played by Lieberstein, on a journey to find the cure to his chronic back pain.
Lieberstein is best known as a writer and producer who also played Toby Flenderson on the U.S. version of “The Office.” He directed episodes of “The Mindy Project,” The Newsroom” and “The Office” on which he also served as showrunner during four seasons.
Lieberstein wrote the original screenplay for “Song of Back and Neck” during his last year on “The Office.” The script was partially inspired by his own battle with his back, which was cured after reading Dr. John Sarno’s “Healing Back Pain, »

It had been reported back in August that Sony weren’t looking to push forward with a sequel to Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters reboot, instead putting focus on a new animated movie and the cartoon series Ghostbusters: Ecto Force, which will debut in 2018. In a new interview with Entertainment Tonight, Feig has admitted that he’s not heard anything from the studio about a potential sequel.
“Nothing that I am aware of,” he said. “You know, I think everybody is going to wait and see how the DVD sells and how our digital sales are. It’s expensive to make these movies and the people who paid for it, the studio, they’ve got to be the ones who want to make it and so far, no word. But I’m very proud of this film and if this is the only one I get to do and the only one with this team, »

Nicolas Cage’s diverse film career has led him down many paths, some have led him to winning an Oscar and playing a superhero, and others are little more off the beaten path, such as his latest performance in the new comedy “Army of One” as a man told by God to capture Osama bin Laden. Loosely based on a GQ story, the film follows ex-con and handyman Gary Faulkner as he learns from a vision of God (played by Russell Brand) that he must go to Pakistan and capture bin Laden. The film co-stars Wendi McLendon-Covey (“Bridesmaids”), Rainn Wilson (“The Office”), Ken Marino (“Party Down”), Denis O’Hare (“True Blood”) and Paul Scheer (“The League”).
