    'Crazy Stupid Love' Team John Requa & Glenn Ficarra To Write & Direct Film On Unruly Software Developer John McAfee

    Tied to the widespread, sporadically successful anti-virus software, the name McAfee was for a long time thought to be just that: a lucrative company putting out a popular product. The past few years have altered that perception, however, as a searing wave of outlandish antics tied to founder John M...

    Warner Bros Create Pixar-Style Brain Trust For Animated Films, Includes Phil Lord & Chris Miller, Nicholas Stoller And More

    This was bound to happen, we're mostly just surprised it didn't happen sooner. You would think that with Pixar's long-standing track record of proving that originality, high standards and creative vision can produce results that please both audiences and critics, rival studios would copy...

    'Crazy Stupid Love' Helmers Glenn Ficarra & John Requa Want Ryan Gosling & Emma Stone To Reunite For Grifter Comedy 'Focus'

    Pairing up hot young things Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone in a movie together is a no brainer, and Warner Bros. has done it twice already, first with last summer's hit comedy "Crazy, Stupid, Love" and then in the upcoming (and now undated) "Gangster Squad." And if 'Crazy...

    Warner Bros. is likely already dreaming up the marketing materials for this one: From The People Who Brought You "Crazy Stupid Love" & "Moneyball" -- has a nice ring to it doesn't it?

    'Crazy Stupid Love' Team Of Steve Carell, Glenn Ficarra & John Requa Reteaming For Backpacker Comedy

    Directing Duo Turned Down 'Bad Santa 2'While the third act plot twist to "Crazy Stupid Love" is hugely contrived and runs against the careful blend of comedy and drama that runs through everything before, the nicely crafted tone from directors Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, and the engaging performan...

    Poster For 'Crazy, Stupid, Love' Reveals It Stars Steve Carell's Crotch & A High-Heeled Shoe

    We know it's pretty much the heart of the summer, but if you have plans to spend the last weekend of July doing anything other than sit in a movie theater, you might want to consider rearranging them. On one of the busiest release dates in recent memory, there seems to be something for everyone: blockbuster fans get "Cowboys & Aliens," lovers of cult films get "Attack the Block," those who like "Scarface"-esque dramas with breakout lead performances get Dominic Cooper in "The Devil's Double," indie types get Miranda July's "The Future" or Brendan Gleeson in sweary Irish action-comedy "The Guard," subtitle-philes get French thriller "Point Bla...

    John Requa & Glenn Ficarra Making Buddy Cop Movie For Fans Of 'Bad Santa'

    John Requa and Glenn Ficarra are no strangers to wantonly pushing buttons. They broke out in a huge way after "Bad Santa," which they wrote and Terry Zwigoff directed, turned into a surprise R-rated comedy hit. They quickly followed that up by penning the script for Richard Linklater's "Bad News Bears" and then made their directorial debut with "I Love You Phillip Morris," an outrageous gay romcom starring Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor. While that film is only finally getting released this month in the U.S. thanks to a string of distribution woes this year, the duo soldiered on undeterred and has the Steve Carell-led comedy "Stupid. Crazy. Lov...
