Trade Roundup: Paul Feig, Police Academy 2, Bruce Almighty 2, Rob McElhenney
Paul Feig will direct The Better Woman, a comedy “about a powerful young woman whose boyfriend dumps her for an older lady.” Ewwww, why would a guy want to date a woman who’s OLD? PUKE.
There’s gonna be a new Police Academy, directed by Scott Zabielski of Tosh.0. At ease, gents. I don’t know what police say.
Fox greenlit two pilots: Living Loaded, a single-camera comedy from Rob McElhenney, about “a loose partying blogger forced to change his career plans when he becomes a radio host,” and Dana Fox’s Ben Fox Is My Manny, about a male nanny. A manny. Does that count as a pun name? Asking for my collection of new TV shows with pun names.
More sequels! We can also expect a Bruce Almighty sequel. Like, not Evan Almighty, but another one with Jim Carrey. Will Morgan Freeman be back as God, or will he be busy playing God in another movie? Time will tell!
