    'Bridesmaids' Director Paul Feig Says He's Rebooting A Comedy Franchise: 4 Possible Contenders

    Plus Helmer Talks Upcoming Jon Hamm/Melissa McCarthy ComedyAlmost everyone involved in "Bridesmaids" has gotten a major boost from its huge success (although, note we said almost everyone: more on this later on), and none more deservingly though than its director, Paul Feig. Since co-creating classic one-season wonder "Freaks and Geeks" with Judd Apatow over a decade ago, Feig has worked consistently on some of the best TV shows around, including "The Office," "Arrested Development" and even "Mad Men," but big-screen success had so far eluded him, with features "I Am David" and "Grounded" landing with a thud.

    Kate Winslet & Josh Brolin Join Jason Reitman's 'Labor Day'

    It seems that Jason Reitman is using every opportunity to strike while the iron is hot. Building his rep with "Thank You For Smoking," breaking out with "Juno" and courting Oscar with "Up In The Air" the young helmer shows no signs of slowing down. Later this year, he'll unveil his next effort "Young Adult," a wickedly dark, Diablo Cody penned film starring Charlize Theron, Patrick Wilson and Patton Oswalt and now he's lining up his followup. But if you've been paying attention, this one has been batted around as early as last year.

    An Unpublished Laura Ziskin Interview

    I have no idea why this interview was not published by The Hollywood Reporter, but it wasn't. This interview was conducted last September and has some really good points about women and the business. Several people commented on the blog about how in Laura Ziskin's obituary, the NY Times said that her daughter Julia was "dragged" to sets. Guess that all that dragging did some good and didn't ruin her life since her daughter Julia not only went into the business, but worked directly with her mom.

More recently, Chappelle has been dropping by comedy clubs from Los Angeles to San Francisco for surprise standup gigs, calling himself the “Big Foot of Comedy” because “you never know when he’s going to show up”...
