Neal Shusterman‘s film and TV credits may not be much to write home about – he’s credited with the story on 1994’s Double Dragon and wrote episodes of Animorphs and Goosebumps, among other things – but as an author, he’s a prolific writer who won the National Book Award in 2015 for his novel Challenger Deep. Now that book, which has a pretty wild premise, is getting an adaptation on Disney+ courtesy of Will McCormack, one of the co-writers of this summer’s Toy Story 4. Read More »

If at first you don’t become a leading lady, write yourself a movie. It worked for Kristen Wiig and Bridesmaids and it should work for Rashida Jones, the lovable and talented co-star of Parks and Recreations, I Love You Man, The Muppets and about a billion other things we all enjoy. Jones arrived at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival with a film called Celeste & Jesse Forever, in which she both stars, with Andy Samberg, and takes co-writing credit with Will McCormack. But unlike Wiig and Bridesmaids, Celeste & Jesse isn’t a balls-out comedy. It is a mature, romantic dramedy that explores, through very funny observations and situations, the story of a separated couple who still spend all of their time together.

King of Kong director Seth Gordon is in talks to develop and direct Celeste and Jesse Forever, a divorce comedy with Rashida Jones (The Office) attached to star.

While McCormack isn’t attached to co-star, it seems possible that the screenplay was written with that as a possibility. The film was originally set up at Fox Atomic, but is now in development at Overture
