Samantha Bee Gets Her Man

By Dustin Rowles | Trade News | June 25, 2010 | Comments ()


The following exclusives come via The Hollywood Cog.


  • We now know what "The Daily Show's" Samantha Bee -- or "the always pregnant lady" -- has been doing with all of her maternity leave. Bee and fellow "The Daily Show" correspondent (and husband) Jason Jones have been writing a script. The Man Hunters follows two women approaching their 40s who use unorthodox means to find themselves a man. The project is set up at Warner Brothers, with Bob Shaye producing.


  • Carey Mulligan and Jodie Foster are attached to Stoker, a Ted Foulke project exec produced by Tony and Ridley Scott. Set up at Fox Searchlight, the movie will focus on a moody teenager who -- after the death of her father -- has to deal with a mysterious uncle who returns to spend time with the family.


  • Josh Peck is set to star in The Siege of Fulton Avenue, a project that once had George Tillman Jr. (Notorious) aboard as director. That no longer appears to be the case. The movie is based on a David Amsden New York Magazine article about a real-life stand-off between a group of teenagers and Westchester, NY police. After a group of kids throw a wild party, the police are called in, and when the police try to break it up, it turns into a stand-off, while the teenagers have to figure out a way to destroy all the evidence while keeping the police at bay. Seige is expected to be a comedy in the vein of Risky Business, Can't Hardly Wait, and Superbad.
