    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."

    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.

This time, director Jay Roach sat back as a producer and Paul Weitz ("American Pie," "About a Boy") took over the filmmaking reigns. All the old gang returned: Ben Stiller, Robert De Niro, Dustin Hoffman, Barbra Streisand, Blythe Danner, Teri Polo plus some new additions in Jessica Alba, Laura Dern, and Harvey Keitel.

    Review: 'Little Fockers' Is That Lump of Coal You (Apparently) Asked For

    A blatant cash grab from studio logos to closing credits, “Little Fockers” takes the money-making formula of "Meet the Parents" and "Meet the Fockers" and adds adorable kids, Jessica Alba, and glorified cameos from Harvey Keitel and Laura Dern into the mix. Families will flock to the holiday release with gusto, but it’s up for debate whether 100 minutes with the Focker and Byrnes families is worse than quality time with your own dysfunctional clan. Sure, there are a few laughs, but we’re not talking minor discomfort on the level with your aunt having spinach casserole stuck in her teeth and blithely smiling for the camera. “Little Fockers” is...
