    James Bobin & Nicholas Stoller Sign On For 'Muppets' Sequel, Jason Segel Too Busy To Co-Write This Time

    While the $153 million worldwide take for "The Muppets" probably was a bit below the numbers Disney were looking for with their franchise reboot, there are some things to note. Of all the Muppet movies so far, that film was the most financially successful at the box office, and on a purely...

    Judd Apatow-Produced 'The Five-Year Engagement' With Jason Segel & Emily Blunt To Open 2012 Tribeca Film Festival

    While his own films have yet to cross over the awards threshold, Oscar nominations for last year's "Bridesmaids" in the Original Screenplay and Supporting Actress categories signify a new respectability for the comedies of Judd Apatow, the man who more than any other is responsible for the rebirth o...

    John Hawkes Wanted For 'The Walking Dead'; Kevin Bacon Faces A Serial Killer For Kevin Williamson & More

    We'll try to dance around spoilers but the finale of the second season of "Boardwalk Empire" was shocking not only in terms of storyline but also with the fact they tore out the heart of the show, or at least what/who we thought was being developed as such. We're fascinated to see ...

    Mindy Kaling, Chris Parnell & Jim Piddock Join Increasingly Awesome Cast Of 'Five-Year Engagement'

    For the last few years, Hollywood's holy grail has seemed to be the R-rated relationship comedy -- it seems that every other script on the annual Black List is an attempt at the genre, and the summer is stuffed with examples. But only this morning, with the trailer for "What's Your Number?," we've s...

    Chris Pratt Joins Jason Segel & Emily Blunt In 'Five Year Engagement'; Rhys Ifans In Talks

    The last time we saw the names Jason Segel, Emily Blunt and Nicholas Stoller all together, it was for absolutely wretched "Gulliver's Travels." That said, the talent lining up for the Segel and Stoller-penned "Five Year Engagement" is proving to be promising, and if it lands anywhere in the ballpark...

    'Community' and 'Mad Men' Star Alison Brie Joins Nicholas Stoller's 'Five-Year Engagement'

    Emily Blunt Confirmed As Female Lead Opposite Jason SegelAMC's "Mad Men" is pretty much the best drama series on television; "Breaking Bad" might give it a run for its money, but we reckon the period piece has the edge. While it's more divisive (including within the staff of The Playlist) NBC's "Com...

    Jason Segel Talks 'Five-Year Engagement,' Aiming For Classic Rom-Com Vibe

    "Our Goal Is 'Annie Hall' Or 'When Harry Met Sally'," Film Likely To Shoot In April We've said it before, but the state of the modern romantic comedy is a pretty lamentable one. Contrived, lazy, laugh-free films such as "Leap Year," "Confessions of a Shopaholic" and "Valentine's Day" have tainted to...

    Angela Lansbury Joins 'Mr. Poppers Penguins'

    Penguins, She WroteWe have a small degree of hope that Jim Carrey's upcoming family film "Mr. Popper's Penguins" will have something of value for those of us who can now reach the kitchen sink without having to use a chair. The film already boasts a not-too-shabby cast of Carrey, Carla Gugino, Phili...
