Taylor Schilling, Adam Scott, Jason Schwartzman and Judith Godrèche are set to star in Patrick Brice‘s upcoming indie comedy “The Overnight,” according to a report by The Wrap. Plot details for “The Overnight,” which has already begun production in Los Angeles, are currently unavailable. The film marks the latest collaboration between Brice and producer Mark Duplass of Duplass Brothers Productions.

Hopefully they won’t Britta this! Deadline reports “Community” star Gillian Jacobs has landed the female lead role in comedy sequel “Hot Tub Time Machine 2,” joining her NBC sitcom co-star Chevy Chase as well as returning stars Rob Corddry, Craig Robinson, Clark Duke and Adam Scott. The first film saw Corddry, Robinson, Duke and John Cusack travel back to 1986 due to a malfunctioning hot tub, where they’re forced to relive one fateful night to ensure Duke is born. No word on the plot details of the sequel, but ScottRead More
It could have just followed in the footsteps of last year’s massive hit “Bridesmaids”, but this year’s pre-wedding party film “Bachelorette” seems to be far bitchier and cynical. Kirsten Dunst, Lizzy Caplan and Isla Fisher star as bitter bridesmaids of a blushing bride they called “Pigface” (Rebel Wilson) in high school. Also featuring James Marsden, Adam Scott and Kyle Bornheimer, we saw the first promotional images late last year and the film premiered at this year’s Sundance Film Festival to mixed reviews, with Screen Daily suggesting it “doesn’t reinvent anything, butRead More
Mary Elizabeth Winstead has joined Adam Scott, Richard Jenkins and “Glee” star Jane Lynch in the cast of indie comedy “A.C.O.D.”, according to Deadline. Scott plays Carter, an A.C.O.D. (Adult Child of Divorce), who’s been caught in the middle of his parents’ nasty divorce for over 20 years. When his brother gets engaged, the feud between the exes intensifies and things spiral out of control. Jenkins plays the dad, Lynch plays Scott’s psychiatrist and Winstead will be Lauren, his longtime girlfriend and “the rock in his increasingly chaotic life.” StuartRead More
Thanks to the success of movies like “The Hangover” and “Bridesmaids”, I expect we’ll be seeing a lot more similarly themed pre-wedding party-hard films to come our way in the near future. The first out of the gate is “Bachelorette”, which will premiere at Sundance next year and will see Kirsten Dunst, Lizzy Caplan and Isla Fisher as bitter bridesmaids of a blushing bride they called “Pigface” in high school. “Bridesmaids” scene-stealer Rebel Wilson will surely do the same again here as the aforementioned poorly-nicknamed bride. James Marsden, Adam ScottRead More
The most high profile of Sundance showings have been unveiled, with the Utah film festival releasing the names of the films that will be premiering out of competition next January. Unlike the competition line-up which consisted mostly of feature debuts and little-known directors and actors waiting for their big break, the out of competition is all A-list. This year’s line-up features such acclaimed directors as Spike Lee, Stephen Frears and Julie Delpy, as well as a homecoming of sorts to festival veterans like Elizabeth Olsen (who will again be representedRead More

“Community” star, Independent Spirit Awards host and “The Soup” commentator Joel McHale also has three movies coming out this year, but he’ll multi-task just a bit more, signing on to black comedy “Ted” opposite Mila Kunis and Mark Walhberg. “Family Guy” creator Seth MacFarlane makes his big screen directorial debut with the film about a boy who made a childhood wish for his best friend – a teddy bear – to always be with him and then grows up (into Walhberg) to still be attached to the now foul-mouthed, alcoholicRead More
Hot off her Critics Choice Award nomination, Mila Kunis has signed on to re-team with “Family Guy” creator/co-star Seth MacFarlane on Universal comedy “Ted”, about a grown man stuck with the bear he wished to come to life to be his best friend as a child, according to THR. Mark Walhberg, who also co-starred with Kunis in “Max Payne”, will play the man who, twenty-five years later, is still stuck with Ted the bear, who has become a cursing, smoking delinquent and keeps him from maturing. MacFarlane, who wrote theRead More
Megan Fox posted on her Facebook page several new images from the New York City set of her new movie “Friends with Kids”. Adam Scott, Kristen Wiig, Jon Hamm and Jennifer Westfeldt co-star, and Westfeldt also wrote and is producing and directing the movie.
