In a Hollywood Reporter story featuring CBS' female showrunners and actresses, "Mom" star Anna Faris spoke out about changing the competitive, cut-throat world that actresses are forced to fight through. "We don't have a sense of community because we don't get to work with each other often," Farris said, mentioning the dearth of roles for women as a contributing factor to this. She contrasted her experience with her husband Chris Pratt's, explaining, "Chris is buddies with all these actors. They'll do each other favors, they'll go to each other's table reads. And the only times I see actress acquaintances of mine is at events." It's possible that the problem is exacerbated by Faris's role as a comedian. Exceptions like "Bridesmaids" and the "Pitch Perfect" franchise aside, most large ensemble comedies feature male players, with a single funny woman thrown in as an aside.

Magic Mike Xxl, 2015
Directed by Gregory Jacobs
Three years after quitting the stripper life, ‘Magic’ Mike Lane runs into his old stripper buddies from the Xquisite show, who take him along on a road trip to a stripper convention as the last hurrah of the company.
Let me refresh your memory: the first Magic Mike film left us with a bittersweet taste in our mouths (…pun probably intended) as Mike (Channing Tatum) quit the stripper life to pursue more conventional business ventures and a relationship with The Kid (Alex Pettyfer)’s sister, Brooke (Cody Horn). There had been drugs, and bad blood, and some unnamed toxicity that even Mike couldn’t stand anymore, leading to his exit pretty much mid-show. It was a surprise and a total subversion of expectations »

Universal has set a holiday season release of Dec. 9, 2016, for Christmas romance “Let It Snow.”
The studio acquired movie rights to “Let It Snow” in September. Bluegrass Films’ Scott Stuber (“Ted”) and Dylan Clark (“Planet of the Apes” series) will produce from a script by “Pitch Perfect” writer Kay Cannon in which three unexpected romances take place over the course of one Christmas Eve.
The project does not have a director or cast attached yet. Green is also the author of “Paper Towns” and “Looking for Alaska.”

The John Green adaptation craze that began with last summer’s The Fault in Our Stars and continues next month with Paper Towns has been prolonged, now that Universal has set its take on his short story collection Let It Snow for December 9, 2016.
Green contributed a story to the three-story collection, which also included work by 13 Little Blue Envelopes author Maureen Johnson and ttyl writer Lauren Myracle. Pitch Perfect scribe Kay Cannon is penning the script for the adaptation, which will weave together three unexpected romances that unfold on one Christmas Eve, Love Actually style.
Currently, Let It Snow has the December weekend to itself, but its legs at the box office may be threatened by Star Wars: Rogue One opening the next week. Of course, the holiday crowd coupled with Green’s ardent fanbase should ensure Let It Snow a pretty high opening.
A long-time favorite of the young-adult crowd, »

Brownstone Productions will develop and produce new television series for the studio under a multiyear pact.
The deal comes following Banks’ directorial debut on the Universal smash hit “Pitch Perfect 2,” which has grossed $171 million domestically. A third pic is in development with Banks and Handleman returning as producers.
Brownstone had been more active on the film front but had slowly been building up a TV slate; they are currently producing “Resident Advisors,” a comedy series with Paramount Digital for Hulu. This deal should see Brownstone generate even more material for the smallscreen.
The pair recently signed a film production deal at Universal, where they are developing several projects including “Pitch Perfect 3” and “Red Queen,” based on the Ya novel, which could also be a directing vehicle for Banks. Brownstone’s upcoming »
