It's fairly easy to get psyched up about a project written by the dude who kicked off his career by penning episodes of Beavis and Butthead, Daria and The Simpsons. Larry Doyle's first feature attempt (Duplex), however, fell way short of the funny. Chalk up another spectacular starring role for Ben Stiller. After returning to the animated world with Looney Tunes: Back in Action, Doyle just recently sold his latest comedy, Me2, to Disney. Currently, the plot is being kept under wraps (although they did let slip something about time travel), and we're not sure whether it will be animated. However, Mark Waters (Mean Girls) has signed on to direct, so chances are this one will go the live action route.

And speaking of top secret plots, Universal snatched up Gerald Olsen's comedy pitchOne Dave at a Time for Mary Parent and Scott Stuber (is it just me, or does it seem these two are in on literally every single deal?) to produce. Usually, when they don't feel like giving us a basic plot description, that means the idea is very high concept and, therefore, they're probably afraid of two or three similar projects suddenly popping up. Based on the title alone (and since I'm a pro at figuring out storylines with little to no information), I'm going to take a wild guess and say this one involves cloning, possibly along the lines of Multiplicity. But what do I know ... I just work here.
