Hollywood Execs Honor Michael De Luca at Shalva Inaugural Gala

Hollywood Execs Honor Michael De Luca at Shalva Inaugural Gala
As global nonprofit Shalva honored longtime showbiz exec and producer Michael De Luca for his work in the Jewish community, the running joke for the evening was his disservice of sorts for producing the 2008 Adam Sandler comedy “The Love Guru.” Even the evenings emcee, Jeremy Garelick, noted that his roasts on the night’s honoree went a tad overboard.

“Tonight I made three ‘Love Guru’ jokes, which is three more than what made it into ‘The Love Guru,'” he quipped.

De Luca, who accepted top honors at the organization’s first Spirit of Hope Dinner with wife Angelique, opened his acceptance speech on the defense.

“I did get some profit [for ‘The Love Guru’],” De Luca said. “I got a profit for participation check from Paramount, which is rare in this town. It was for $62.”

De Luca’s award was presented by producer and former Sony co-chairman Amy Pascal, who received her own

MTV Developing Campaign Dramedy from ‘The Wedding Ringer’ Director (Exclusive)

MTV Developing Campaign Dramedy from ‘The Wedding Ringer’ Director (Exclusive)
MTV is getting into the race with their latest project in development.

The young-skewing cable network has purchased a pitch for “The Campaigners,” a political dramedy from “The Wedding Ringer” helmer Jeremy Garelick and author/producer Aaron Cooley, Variety has learned exclusively.

The hourlong project revolves around a group of overachieving undergrads who use their social media savvy to get a fictional candidate nominated for the upcoming senate election. What started as a political statement turns into a twisted mystery when a suspicious person claims to be their candidate, and the ensemble must scramble to cover up the campaign before their imposter gets elected.

Cooley will pen the script. Should the pilot be greenlit, Garelick will direct. Both will serve as exec producers, and Sam Anzel will co-produce.

Garelick and Cooley were college classmates and assistants to director Joel Schumacher (“Batman Forever,” “Batman & Robin”) in their early years. During that time,

'Baywatch' Movie Teams the Rock with 'Horrible Bosses' Director
Horrible Bosses and Identity Thief director Seth Gordon has signed on to direct Paramount's movie adaptation of the hit TV series Baywatch, which has Dwayne Johnson set to star. The actor has been attached to the project since October, when, ironically, Horrible Bosses 2 filmmakers Sean Anders and John Morris were set to direct.

The Baywatch movie has been in the works since July 2009, when Jeremy Garelick signed on to write and direct. A slew of writers have worked on the project between now and then, including Brian Gatewood & Alessandro Tanaka, Peter Tolan and Justin Malen.

‘The Wedding Ringer’ Blu-ray Review

Stars: Kevin Hart, Josh Gad, Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting, Affion Crockett, Jorge Garcia, Dan Gill, Corey Holcomb, Ken Howard, Colin Kane, Cloris Leachman, Mimi Rogers, Aaron Takahashi, Olivia Thirlby | Written by Jeremy Garelick, Jay Lavender | Directed by Jeremy Garelick

Confession time. I’m not the biggest Kevin Hart fan. I don’t mind the actor/comedian in small doses – a supporting actor in films such as the remake of Death at a Funeral and the Scary Movie franchise, but I can’t sit through any of his stand-up shows in there entirety and the last movie hes was the “star” of, Ride Along, was – frankly – awful. However I am always willing to give Hart’s film a go – especially when they look, albeit from the trailer, as hilarious as The Wedding Ringer.

And I’m happy to report The Wedding Ringer is not only a fantastic bro-mance flick (yes, they Do exist

The Wedding Ringer – The Blu Review

“These guys can not be my groomsmen. It looks like the entire cast of Goonies grew up and became rapists!”

When Jim Batts reviewed The Wedding Ringer here at We Are Movie Geeks, he wrote: “…….First time feature director Jeremy Garelik tries to give the flick a frenzied pace by quickly cutting in for close-ups constantly, which never exhilarates, but merely exhausts the viewer. Every bit of business is hammered home, with little room for characterization. Subtlety? No way! No time! Got to get to the next big “gut-buster”…..(read all of Jim’s review Here)

I didn’t see The Wedding Ringer when it played theatrically, but after catching up with it on Blu-ray, I’d have to say I liked it a bit better than Jim did, but of course I watched it at home as opposed to a theater full of people who may or may have not been laughing.
