    Jason Segel To Star In Punk Rock Parenting Pic 'The Other F Word'

    Jason Segel and music, are like peanut butter and chocolate. The actor rarely heads into a project that doesn't have him contributing at least a bit of musical flavor, whether it's slappin' de bass with Paul Rudd while listening to Rush in "I Love You Man," creating a vampire p...

    On The Rise 2012: 5 Screenwriters To Keep An Eye On In The Next Few Years

    Unlike in theater or television, writers generally get the short end of the stick in the movie business. When a film doesn't work, the script is blamed, when it does work, the director gets credit. Writers get fired, rehired, fired again, rewritten and screwed out of credit. But that's not to say th...

    'Easy A' Helmer Will Gluck To Direct Action-Comedy 'Secretaries Day' From 'Iron Man 3' Writer Drew Pearce

    Sony loves Will Gluck. In the course of three movies (“Fired Up!,” “Easy A,” and “Friends With Benefits”) he transformed the company’s Screen Gems shingle from a cheap huckster of common genre flicks (the “Underworld” movies, “Takers,” “Priest,” “Burlesque”) into the premiere haven for somewhat-inte...

    Empire Big Screen '11: Drew Pearce Says 'The Avengers' Put 'Runaways' On Hold, Hopes For 2012 Start

    Writer Drew Pearce has quickly moved up the ladder to become of the most sought after scribes for comic fare. Pearce broke out as the producer/writer of the British superhero comedy "No Heroics" and has since landed a couple of high profile gigs, co-writing "Iron Man 3" with director Shane Black and penning the DC Comic "The Mighty" for Paramount. But before both of these, Pearce had readied a script for "The Runaways," a Marvel movie that was gearing up to shoot last year with Peter Sollet ("Raising Victor Vargas,” “Nick and Nora’s Infinite Playlist”) directing before being taken off the slate in the fall. It seems two superhero team-up movi...
