I randomly came across this trailer and I wonder if this movie may have any traction.
It’s a Nick Hornby adaptation, co-written by both Tamara Jenkins and Jim Tayler with newbie Evgenia Peretz. The director Jesse Peretz doesn’t seem to have much in the way of a filmography but has a lot of TV credits. It says it’s produced by the same people who brought us Little Miss Sunshine but the producers seems to be different with this one having Judd Apatow’s involvement.
From the trailer I think Rose Byrne, Ethan Hawke, and Chris O’Dowd look pretty great. Byrne’s English accent is pretty convincing, but I know nothing of these things.
I was reading some reviews of the novel and apparently this light-hearted tone of the trailer seems different from the tone of the actual book which apparently is sort of a bleak look at how the Internet feeds male fandom and obsession.
