    Ben Stiller & Disney Are Producing 'Quantum Hoops,' A Movie About Nerds Who Are Awful At Basketball

    In "Dodgeball," Ben Stiller's memorable White Goodman squared off against Vince Vaughn and a ragtag bunch of inept losers who rallied together to inconceivably become champions of the titular sport. The formula already worked one time, so why not try it with basketball instead?

    While "Mr. Popper's Penguins" will arrive in theaters this weekend with Jim Carrey doing his familiar rubber face schtick, you might remember that at one point "Greenberg" duo Noah Baumbach and Ben Stiller were going to reteam on the film.

    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...

    Ben Stiller Says 'Zoolander 2' Has A Good Script, But Still In The Hands Of Paramount

    While some people think we're kind of no-fun movie lovers who prefer our films foreign and depressing, the truth is we could probably out quote anyone when it comes to either "Anchorman" or "Zoolander" any day of the week. But any hopes of seeing Ron Burgundy or Derek Zoolander again on the big scre...

    It's Up To You Paramount: Ben Stiller Says 'Zoolander 2' Script Has Been Handed In, Awaiting Reply

    While Paramount rejected plans for an "Anchorman 2," Ben Stiller and Justin Theroux have been hard at work to the sequel of their own hit comedy, "Zoolander." For much of last year, the project played second fiddle to the Will Ferrell vehicle, but no matter, as Stiller and Theroux have been plugging...

    Cate Blanchett In, Greta Gerwig Out For Noah Baumbach's 'While We're Young'

    Filming Begins Next SummerWhile we'll always long for the never-made version of "Greenberg" with Mark Ruffalo and Amy Adams, the fact that Ben Stillerand Noah Baumbach are now total besties means that financing probably comes much, much easier for the indie auteur, and if that means he gets more films greenlit, then who are we to complain? It was with much excitement that reports broke earlier in the month that Baumbach was quickly gearing up another film, "While We're Young," a relationship film (shock!) with Ben Stiller and James Franco set to star, and with offers out to both Cate Blanchett and Greta Gerwig. And while we love both actresse...
