500_writers

Warner Bros Pictures has acquired the big screen adaptation of James Collins‘ novel Beginner’s Greek. I Love You Man, Observe and Report and Green Lantern producer Donald De Line has hired 500 Days of Summer screenwriters Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber to pen the adaptation. If I had a list of new screenwriters to watch, Neustadter and Weber would definitely be on the top of the list. If you’ve seen 500 Days of Summer, than you know why these guys are getting so much buzz around Hollywood. — Slashfilm

Beginner’s Greek is available in hardcover for $16 on Amazon. The review from Amazon.com is after the jump.

Director Marc Webb Guest Blogging – #3

500 Days of Summer director Marc Webb has been guest blogging over at FirstShowing.net. In his latest entry, “Internet Wormholes”, he talks about social media and how modern filmmakers like himself and the 500 Days screenwriters are using it. As an obsessed fan blogger, I can personally relate to a lot of what Marc goes into but he puts things into perspective well.

We read EVERYTHING. And most younger filmmakers I know do the same. It’s both exhilarating and maddening. Sometimes you want to pat someone on the back and sometimes you want to punch someone in the face. But at the end of the day – it’s just too enticing to go down the 500 Days of Summer internet wormhole. (What people reveal on Twitter is amazing – I know exactly who stole the poster from the Union Square theater.)

Read the rest of the post on FirstShowing.net. Looking forward to investigating Borges.

500 Days of Summer TV Spot: “Boy Meets Girl”

It’s alright. Not as compelling as this first tv spot I came across just over a week ago. Suppose this spot is for a more general audience. Shows off the format of the film well.

Roger Ebert Reviews 500 Days of Summer

We never remember in chronological order, especially when we’re going back over a failed romance. We start near the end, and then hop around between the times that were good and the times that left pain. People always say “start at the beginning,” but we didn’t know at the time it was the beginning. “500 Days of Summer” is a movie that works that way.

Some say they’re annoyed by the way it begins on Day 488 or whatever and then jumps around, providing utterly unhelpful data labels: “Day 1,” “Day 249.” Movies are supposed to reassure us that events unfold in an orderly procession. But Tom remembers his love, Summer, as a series of joys and bafflements. What kind of woman likes you perfectly sincerely and has no one else in her life but is not interested in ever getting married?

500 Days of Summer Music

Wish there were more songs included in this 500 Days of Summer music collage but only using Regina Spektor and Wolfmother actually creates a very cool video.

Check out all the tracks on the 500 Days of Summer soundtrack or purchase the soundtrack below to enjoy it immediately! It’s all I’ve been listening to lately.
