Adam McKay to di­rect Dick Cheney film for Para­mount

NEW YORK >> Adam McKay will write and di­rect a film about Dick Cheney for Para­mount Pic­tures.

A rep­re­sen­ta­tive for Para­mount con­firmed Tues­day that McKay has writ­ten a script about the for­mer vice pres­i­dent and hopes to be­gin shoot­ing this spring. The project was first re­ported by Dead­line.

The un­ti­tled film will be pro­duced by McKay and his Gary Sanchez part­ners, Will Fer­rell and Kevin Mes­sick, along with Plan B’s Brad Pitt, Dede Gard­ner and Jeremy Kleiner. The same team backed McKay’s Os­car-win­ning Michael Lewis adap­tion “The Big Short.”

McKay and Fer­rell pre­vi­ously col­lab­o­rated on a Broad­way show about Cheney’s com­man­der in chief in “You’re Wel­come Amer­ica: A Fi­nal Night with Ge­orge W. Bush.” McKay’s Cheney film, though, takes a more dra­matic ap­proach to a cen­tral fig­ure from the Bush administration.

Emma Stone once jeal­ous of Jennifer Lawrence’s suc­cess

Emma Stone says she was jeal­ous of fel­low star Jennifer Lawrence’s early suc­cess be­fore the two be­came friends.

Stone tells Van­ity Fair for a cover story on Lawrence that she thought Lawrence was “so great and vi­brant and tal­ented” that she would have a negative im­pact on Stone’s ca­reer.

Stone says she soon re­mem­bered she and Lawrence are “com­pletely dif­fer­ent and there is room for ev­ery­one, even if it’s an in­dus­try that doesn’t re­ally seem to sup­port that idea up front.”

Now, she says she and Lawrence “re­ally do love each other and care about each other as peo­ple.” She says she knows they’d be friends, even if they didn’t have the same job.
