Will Gluck producing ‘About Last Night’

EXCLUSIVE: 'Easy A' helmer will oversee the 80's rom-com remake

Screen Gems darling Will Gluck is attached to produce its remake of 1986 Brat Pack comedy “About Last Night.” Gluck, who helmed summer’s hit comedy “Easy A,” will produce through his Olive Bridge Prods. He will help recruit a director and writer, sources say.

The original pic, directed by Edward Zwick and toplining Rob Lowe, Demi Moore, Jim Belushi and Elizabeth Perkins, was based on David Mamet’s 1974 play “Sexual Perversity in Chicago,” about a couple who start a romantic affair despite their friends’ disapproval.

“Last Night” falls within Gluck’s collaborations with Screen Gems. He wrote and directed the label’s “Friends With Benefits,” starring Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis, set for release on July 22. He also will reunite with “Easy A” star Emma Stone on an untitled comedy, which he’ll write, direct and produce. Screen Gems prexy Clint Culpepper and senior VP of production Scott Strauss will oversee the “Last Night” remake. Gluck is repped by UTA.
