    New Line Picks Up Melissa McCarthy's Road Trip Script 'Tammy'

    Since her breakthrough role as the crass but loveable Megan in this summer’s “Bridesmaids,” Melissa McCarthy has already hosted “Saturday Night Live” and won a Primetime Emmy for her role on the popular (but insufferable) CBS comedy “Mike & Molly.” Having already completed a role in “Bridesmaids” producer Judd Apatow’s anticipated “Knocked Up” spinoff “This is Forty,” it should come as no surprise that McCarthy is quickly earning the right to get a project going on her name alone.

    Review: 'The Catechism Cataclysm' Is An Indescribable & Unforgettable Curio

    If you’re a student of screenplay structure with a dog-eared copy of a Robert McKee book, it’s best to stay away from “The Catechism Cataclysm.” The new film from director Todd Rohal spends a good majority of its scant seventy-five minute runtime stymieing conventional thought, trafficking in casual blasphemy to depict a metaphysical journey into hell for a protagonist heavily under-equipped to deal with such trauma.

    Producer Gale Anne Hurd Talks Separating The Comic & TV Versions Of 'The Walking Dead'

    Prolific Producer Says 'Hulk' & 'Terminator' Franchises Moving On Without HerGale Anne Hurd has had an incredibly varied (and just plain incredible) career, starting off as an executive assistant to Roger Corman before becoming one of the biggest genre producers in the business, kind of like a lady Jerry Bruckheimer. With her ex-husband James Cameron she produced "The Terminator," "Aliens," "The Abyss," and "Terminator 2: Judgment Day" – big, complicated productions that set the box office on fire. In the years since 'T2' she has dabbled in comedy (the underrated Watergate romp "Dick"), family adventures ("Clockstoppers," which is sort of like the non-perverted version of Nicholson Baker's novel "The Fermata") and superhero yarns – shepherding two versions of both "The Incredible Hulk" and "The Punisher" to the big screen (with notably mixed results).
