- He's Just Not That Into You director Ken Kwapis will direct a live-action movie based on Scott Adams' Dilbert comic strip, according to Pajiba's sources. Kwapis also directed episodes of The Office, so he seems a good fit. I don't know or care who might be fitting for the titular white-collar worker, but I hope Kwapis goes back to his Follow That Bird roots and gets Barkley to play Dogbert. He's too big and doesn't speak, but he's better than another CG talking dog, right?

- Speaking of The Office, Steve Carell is Warner Bros.' choice to play songwriter/producer Dennis Lambert ("Ain't No Woman Like the One I Got"; "Baby Come Back") in its proposed dramatic remake of the 2008 documentary Of All the Things. The original follows Lambert on tour in the Philippines, which is apparently the only place his 1972 solo album is popular. The studio doesn't own the rights to the doc yet, so this is likely just playful, wishful casting.
