Leonardo DiCaprio and Jamie Foxx team up for the crime/drama Mean Business on North Ganson Street, marking the second time the two A-list actors join forces. Speaking of reteaming: Harry and Lloyd (aka Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels) will match wits again in Dumb and Dumber To. Lionsgate dealing with White Girl Problems–what’s not to like about that title? And Ditto on the comedy Sports Chick, co-written by Jason Reitman, and the Benderspink project A Guy’s Guide to Being a Man’s Man. Universal and Vinson Films will also produce a live-action remake of the Japanses anime film Vexille.
Other script sales include:
– Classic throwback alert: an adaptation of the children’s classic Encyclopedia Brown. Warner Bros. and Vertigo Entertainment producing.
– Susan Cooper, written by Paul Feig (Bridesmaids), an action comedy putting a female in the James Bond role.
– Reboot: Tomb Raider.
– An adaptation of the Choose Your Own Adventure series. Although the only really extraordinary way to pull it off is if the audience chooses the direction of the movie. . . .
