Emma Stone has been moving into more dramatic territory lately with parts in The Help and Gangster Squad, but she may be returning to her comedy roots soon. The actress has entered talks to star in He’s Fuckin’ Perfect, a comedy by first time feature writer Lauryn Kahn. The film is being produced by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay‘s Gary Sanchez Productions, where Kahn has worked for the past several years as McKay’s assistant.
He’s Fuckin’ Perfect revolves around a pessimistic woman who uses her social media know-how to research her friends’ dates and help them weed out the losers. But when she stumbles across the ideal man, she convinces her friend to dump him so that she can claim him for herself, using her Internet savvy to turn herself into his perfect match. [Deadline]
After the jump, Michelle Monaghan is a sex-addicted FBI agent, Alice Eve is a homewrecker, and Brian Cox gives Zach Galifianakis some serious daddy issues.

In May we told you that Hollywood was going to develop a movie based on the television show American Gladiators. I had hoped it would be one of those projects that would slip into nothingness, never to be heard from again. Not so…
Patriot Games/Varsity Blues scribe Peter Iliff will write a screenplay based on an idea by former Legendary Pictures chief marketing officer Scott Mednickis (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) who is producing the feature. Iliff is probably best known for writing Point Break, and recently wrote the upcoming sequel Point Break Indo.

Back in May, we told you that Patriot Games scribe Peter Iliff has signed on to write and direct a sequel to Point Break. Apparently RGM Entertainment has announced at the American Film Market this week that Point Break 2 will begin production in mid-2008 in Southeast Asia. Iliff, who wrote the first movie, is making his directorial debut with this $20-$30 million sequel.
Point Break 2 will follow an ex-professional surfer who enlists in the US Navy and is recruited to track down a criminal gang based in Southeast Asia. Apparently Patrick Swayze’s character Bodhi might not have died in that giant wave at the end of the first film. Is he behind this new criminal gang? Keanu Reeves is likely not involved in the sequel.
In addition to writing the original 1987 film, Iliff also scripted Prayer of the Rollerboys (a great guilty pleasure in its own right), Patriot Games, Varsity Blues and Under Suspicion. Point Break was also a big focal point of Edgar Wright’s recent Hot Fuzz. I wonder if that film had anything to do with the thought bubble which gave birth to this sequel. I’m guessing so.
