Scott Rudin and Cameron Crowe Working Together
Or I guess you could say Reese Witherspoon and Ben Stiller working together. To me, the teaming of Rudin and Crowe is the more interesting.
According to Variety, producer Scott Rudin and Cameron Crowe are teaming up for plot-details-under-wraps romantic comedy :
Project reunites Crowe with Columbia for the first time since the helmer’s “Almost Famous” in 2000. Crowe and studio topper Amy Pascal have a long-standing relationship that dates back to the filmmaker’s 1989 “Say Anything,” when Pascal was an executive at 20th Century Fox. Crowe made “Jerry Maguire” — his biggest box office success — for Columbia and Pascal.
Film, which will begin lensing in January when Stiller and Witherspoon’s schedules open, brings together Rudin and Crowe for the first time. Columbia’s move is reminiscent of Pascal outbidding several other parties in February to make Roland Emmerich’s pricey “2012.” Once again, Columbia is ponying up a sizable sum to add an instant slot-filler to its slate.
