Nick Stoller on Gulliver and Stretch; Jonah Hill talks 21 Jump Street

05.24.2010

JimmyO got himself to the Greek Theater in Los Angeles this weekend to talk to the cast and crew behind GET HIM TO THE GREEK. While we'll have the full interviews with Russell Brand, Jonah Hill and director Nick Stoller next week, we do have some quick tidbits on their upcoming films we can share.

While Stoller hasn't yet decided on his next directing gig, he has a number of scripts on the way including GULLIVER'S TRAVELS, which stars Jack Black, Jason Segel and Emily Blunt and hits theaters in 3D this December. Says Stoller, "I saw a rough cut of it actually, and itís great. Itís a big fantasy, comedy, adventure movie...Itís a real fantasy movie but with comedy in it."

Stoller's other big assignment is STRETCH ARMSTRONG, which he's writing for Universal and Taylor Lautner. The movie will reteam him with GULLIVER director Rob Letterman. "It really was exciting for both of us to get to play in the superhero world and to make like a big, totally grounded, superhero movie, kind of with an IRON MAN tone, a little bit of a lighter tone to it. But weíre both huge, superhero movie fans and it seems fun to create a mythologyÖ itís a giant, awesome sandbox we get to play with. Itís gonna be serious, itís not like heíll turn himself into a rubber bandÖ I love superhero movies and stuff, but Rob is like a serious [fan] and he knows it all and has a really good take on it, a visual take on it that I thinkÖ I think when that first teaser hits, [fans] will be like, ĎOh shit!í"

Finally, Jonah Hill spoke quickly about 21 JUMP STREET, which will begin filming in early 2011 with Phil Lord and Chris Miller (CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF MEATBALLS) directing. Says Jonah, "Itís really funny and itís got some cool action sequences." And of the oft-rumored Johnny Depp cameo? "We're trying...(laughs)"

Damn it....

Why the fuck does Hollywood make dramas into comedies? I mean "21 Jump Street" is not a fucking comedy. "Gulliver's Travels" sounds like shit. I'll take the Ted Danson-version any day.

"Get Him to Greek"--- yeah ain't a Russell Brand fan and I'm still pissed he's remaking "Arthur."

As for "Stretch Armstrong"---still don't like that Taylor Lautner is starring as him. If you ask me the way I would've done it is with Patrick Warburton as Stretch. The toy eerily looks like him.

Stretch Armstrong + That Shirtless Manchild Wolfboy=

FUCKING HILARIOUS. HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

And a 21 Jump Street movie. Yeah....no. No one would've ever thought to put that on celluloid were it not for the resurgence of Depp in 2003.

Good Lord

Ok, It is clear Jonah Hill isn't going anywhere, he's here to stay. I wish you people could re-think Russell Brand but I guess he's gotta make a living too. I just wish he could change his attitude, that whole "everything is a big joke and I'm not taking anything serious" thing is just way too old. We need to be selective about who we allow to make it big as entertainers because clearly all this [link] humour never lasts. Which is why I'm begging Jonah Hill, if he's going to continue to appear

Which is why I'm begging Jonah Hill, if he's going to continue to appear on my tv screen, please change your acting style or your attitude towards movies. They act like they just showed up on set and someone filmed them being themselves, why would we pay to see people acting like idiots. It's incredibly annoying that we have to have people like this. They don't work for their success, it just gets handed to them. Seriously, Russell Brand really needs to leave show business because he just is NOT funny.

All of the above movies sound bad

Nothing really catches my attention. Gulliver's Travels, maybe but everything else (especially the Stretch Armtstrong movie) sounds pretty bad. I don't think there's anyway to make a Stretch Armstrong movie good even if you lost Lautner and hired someone who can act.

21 jump street as a movie? I've hoped this was just a really bad rumor, this is ridiculous
