Universal and Judd Apatow sign on for Amy Schumer comedy vehicle

Universal has optioned a big-screen comedy script from comedian Amy Schumer, with Judd Apatow coming on board as producer to help Schumer develop the project, EW has confirmed. Schumer, who broke out this year with her hit Comedy Central sketch series Inside Amy Schumer, will star in the film.

Apatow has a sharp eye for female comic talent, having, among other things, helped to shepherd Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo’s Bridesmaids script to the screen and collaborated with Lena Dunham to develop the HBO series Girls. Details about the film project are under wraps for now, but in the meantime, Schumer is at work on the second season of Inside Amy Schumer, which is due next year.

Critics' Choice Awards: 'Argo,' 'Silver Linings Playbook' big winners

At least the critics still love him! On the same day he was snubbed of an Oscar nomination, Ben Affleck took home the Best Director award at the Critics’ Choice Awards for Argo, which also won Best Picture.

The rest of the honorees — held by the Broadcast Film Critics Association, the largest critics group in the country — were made up of newly-minted Oscar nominees like Daniel Day-Lewis (Best Actor for Lincoln), Jessica Chastain (Best Actress for Zero Dark Thirty), Anne Hathaway (Best Supporting Actress for Les Misérables) and Philip Seymour Hoffman (Best Supporting Actor for The Master).

The cast of Silver Linings Playbook won the Ensemble award, and Beasts of the Southern Wild’s Quvenzhané Wallis received Best Young Actor/Actress.

Judd Apatow, the writer-producer-director of This is 40, won the somewhat tongue-in-cheek Louis XIII Genius Award for “an unprecedented demonstration of excellence in the cinematic arts.”

Movie fans, meanwhile, were invited to vote for their favorite film franchise for this year’s awards, and they chose Twilight over the likes of Batman, Harry PotterJames Bond, and Star Wars.

'This Is 40' deleted scene reveals Billie Joe Armstrong's next solo project -- VIDEO

The best way to make people forget about your recent breakdown? Film a funny cameo in Judd Apatow’s new movie. Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong did just that, appearing briefly in This Is 40 — but his best scene apparently ended up on the cutting room floor.

In this deleted bit from the movie, Armstrong tells record label owner Pete (Paul Rudd) all about a new project on which he’d like to embark: “Have you heard of Norwegian death metal? I thought of taking that and mixing it with, like, Belle and Sebastian. It’s sort of music you can cry to but also maybe burn a church down at the same time.” And from there, things just get weirder. Check it out below — and be thankful that we never actually hear the “music” Armstrong is describing:

Behind the scenes of Judd Apatow's 'This is 40' with Megan Fox -- EXCLUSIVE NSFW VIDEO

Did we get your attention with Megan Fox and NSFW in the headline? Good. Now here’s a behind-the-scenes video from the set of Judd Apatow’s upcoming comedy This Is 40, which hits theaters Dec. 21, highlighting the assets — comedic and, um, otherwise — that Fox brings to her supporting role as Desi, a highly sexualized clerk in a clothing boutique.

As you might imagine given the rest of the Apatovian oeuvre, the movie — a semi-sequel to Apatow’s 2007 hit Knocked Up, chronicling one emotionally tumultuous week in the lives of married-with-kids couple Pete (Paul Rudd) and Debbie (Leslie Mann) — has a healthy heaping of raunchy humor, so… well, if you were planning to watch this video with, say, your grandma, you might want to pump the brakes.

Hollywood Film Awards: Seth Rogen kicks off Oscar season

Awards season can seem a little ridiculous at times. The Oscars are a tradition and the Golden Globes are a party, but there sometimes seem to be about 36 other awards shows vying for attention. Before you know it, they’re going to start handing out awards before the movies even come out. What’s that, you say? The Hollywood Film Awards already steamrolled that notion? How can you possibly honor a film or performance that you haven’t even seen?

It’s a fair question, but that didn’t stop giant Hollywood stars from turning out last night for the 16th annual Hollywood Film Awards, the brainchild of a canny promoter named Carlos de Abreu. Dustin Hoffman “won” for Hollywood Breakthrough Director, Bradley Cooper and Marion Cotillard took home acting awards, Quentin Tarantino was named the best screenwriter, presumably for the still unfinished Django Unchained. Perhaps the Hollywood Film Awards are the “official launch of awards season,” but I defer to Seth Rogen, who pointed out some industry truths when he introduced Judd Apatow, who was honored with the Hollywood Comedy Award.

“This is the first stop of the awards season. Or if you work in comedy, it’s known as the last stop of the awards season. READ FULL STORY

Universal posts entire 'This Is 40' screenplay on its 'For Your Consideration' site

Want a sneak peek at This Is 40, Judd Apatow’s upcoming semi-sequel to Knocked Up? You could watch the film’s nearly three-minute-long trailer… or you could just go to Universal’s special awards season website, which is currently hosting a PDF of the movie’s full screenplay. The page also has subsections devoted to Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax, Snow White and the Huntsman, Ted, and Les Miserables. Every one of them includes a screenplay, except for Les Mis.

That makes sense; while the first three films have already been released, Tom Hooper’s musical won’t hit theaters until Christmas Day. But This Is 40 also isn’t getting released until December — making the studio’s decision to post its screenplay seem curious, at the very least. Then again, it’s likely that the film’s actual dialogue varies greatly from what’s on the page; Apatow is known for encouraging his actors to improvise.

In any case: The curious and impatient can find a PDF of the script here. It is, of course, NSFW, although there are no images to go with its descriptions of Viagra-fueled sex and gynecological visits.

'This is 40' trailer: Paul Rudd loves cupcakes, Leslie Mann wants Megan Fox's bazooms

“This is not just their story,” says the tagline in the new trailer for This is 40, Judd Apatow’s slice-of-life comedy about Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann’s characters from Knocked Up. “This is everyone’s story.” Well, okay, granted, not everyone works in the music industry and lives in a fabulous Los Angeles home. And not everyone’s newly teenage daughter is culturally astute enough to call a gawky teenage boy “Tom Petty…in a negative way.”

But there is a charming familiarity to the trials and tribulations of these two people. I want to spend more time watching them adorably stumble through life whilst wolfing down Sprinkles cupcakes and/or coveting Megan Fox’s youthful bosom. Check out the trailer below, and decide if you feel the same way:  READ FULL STORY

'This Is 40' trailer: The sort-of sequel to 'Knocked Up'

Spin-off or sequel? Judd Apatow’s new comedy This Is 40, which picks up with the lives of married couple Pete (Paul Rudd) and Debbie (Leslie Mann) a few years after the events of Knocked Up, is both.

Of course, saying “a few years after the events of Knocked Up” sounds like a sci-fi catastrophe occurred in Katherine Heigl’s uterus, but the new entry from the Apatow team is a lighthearted spin-off that looks at middle-age married life through the lens of a quarrelling, albeit still in love, couple. Melissa McCarthy and Jason Segel pop up in the trailer, and you can expect appearances from Megan Fox, Lena Dunham, Chris O’Dowd, John Lithgow and Annie Mumolo when the film comes out on December 21. Check out the first trailer below: READ FULL STORY

'The Five-Year Engagement' to open 2012 Tribeca Film Festival

The Tribeca Film Festival has announced that The Five-Year Engagement will open their 2012 festival. The romantic comedy, co-produced by Judd Apatow, stars Jason Segel and Emily Blunt as an engaged couple who keeps pushing back their nuptials.

”We are so honored that the festival organizers have given us this platform to premiere the film,” said director Nicholas Stoller, in a statement. “To be honest, this is all just a ploy to stand on top of a building with Robert De Niro and look out over New York City at dusk.”

”The Tribeca Film Festival has always celebrated the power of creative collaboration, and there is no better example of that than The Five-Year Engagement,” said Jane Rosenthal, cofounder of the festival.

The rest of Tribeca’s feature film slate will be announced on March 6 and 8, and the festival itself will run from April 18 to 29.

Watch a trailer of the opening movie, which hits theaters April 27, below. READ FULL STORY
