    Olivia Wilde, Ron Livingston & Jake Johnson Join Joe Swanberg's 'Drinking Buddies'

    Following in the footsteps of micro-budgeted filmmakers like the Duplass Brothers, American independent filmmaker and actor Joe Swanberg looks like he's going Hollywood for his next project. And or, at the very least, the mumblecore-y director/writer/thespian has scored himself a prett...

    Can Aubrey Plaza Time Travel? 'Safety Not Guaranteed'

    Safety Not Guaranteed is not a sci-fi movie, even though the story is about a group of reporters following up on an ad for a partner to time-travel with: “Must bring your own weapons. Safety not guaranteed.” And it’s not a Duplass Brothers film even though the droll, low-key s...

    Max Winkler, Steve Carell & Jake Johnson Team For Mob Comedy

    Back when Steve Carell was plying his trade on "The Office" on a weekly basis, we could expect to see him in maybe one or two films each summer, depending on what he could fit around his busy NBC schedule. But when his time on that show ran its course last April, Carell found himself with ...

    Max Winkler & Jake Johnson Write & Create Mayoral Comedy For Fox TV

    EXCLUSIVE: Earlier this year, during an interview with David Gordon Green, we asked about his Rough House Pictures production shingle, the company he formed with filmmaking pals Jody Hill, Danny McBride and Matt Reilly. He told us it's a place where the "strange ideas and concepts" they cook up or come across have a home to grow and develop. And it looks like those plans are starting to bear some fruit, particularly on television. Last spring, MTV picked up the animated series "Good Vibes" and this summer Rough House signed a one-year development deal with 20th Century Fox.

    Jake Johnson Latest To Join Cast Of '21 Jump Street'

    Considering it's the kind of project that we'd normally run a mile from (namely, a big-budget remake of a 1980s TV show that no one really gives a shit about), we're curiously optimistic about "21 Jump Street." Like the show, which launched the career of Johnny Depp, the movie will focus on a group ...
