Hollywood mingles around ‘Tingle’

Williamson's debut pic draws youthful crowd

Dimension Films’ high school-set “Teaching Mrs. Tingle,” the feature helming debut of writer-director Kevin Williamson, unspooled Wednesday at the Mann Bruin in Westwood.

For Williamson — who wrote the teen horror series’ “Scream” and “I Still Know What You Did Last Summer,” and created the teen sudser “Dawson’s Creek” and the upcoming twentysomething drama “Wasteland” — directing his first feature was “a blast,” and different from his work on the small screen. “Television is so immediate and fast. … With film, you have a lot more time, the clock doesn’t tick as fast.”

“Tingle-ers” moved on to party at the underage-appropriate venue Jerry’s Deli, where co-stars Helen Mirren, Marisa Coughlin, Katie Holmes, Barry Watson, Liz Stauber, Leslie Ann Warren and Molly Ringwald were reunited.

One guest’s take on the study-hall crowd milling about was that it “looked like a casting call for the WB.”

Miramax’s Harvey Weinstein was on hand as was exec producer Cathy Konrad.

Other guests included Courteney Cox and David Arquette, Rebecca Gayheart, Jessica Biel, Timothy Olyphant, Adrien Brody, Leslie Ann Warren and rock band Eve 6.
