    Ben Stiller May Take A 'Neighborhood Watch' With Akiva Schaffer Offered Director's Chair

    2010 gave us two sides of Ben Stiller. We saw him in the excellent Noah Baumbach film "Greenberg" and watched him slum it in the absolutely dreadful "Little Fockers," Now, halfway through 2011, the actor is deciding what he'll do after he's finished up Brett Ratner's sort-of-promising ensemble comed...

    Guest Post: Step One: Finding the Right Producer by Zoje Stage

    In 2008, I won a Fellowship in Screenwriting from the New York Foundation for the Arts. As I left the party in my strapless black dress and uncomfortable shoes I had one thought: "Please dear gods let this be the beginning of my professional career, and NOT just the highlight of years of effort."
