Royal. Oh yeah, and Will Gluck put it all together.
Since the success, Gluck’s next comedy, Friends With Benefits, got a very funny trailer, Stone finished starring in the adaptation of the literary dynamo The Help and got cast as the new Gwen Stacy in Spider-man. All this to say, things have been good for the two.
Screen Gems wants the next film, which Gluck is writing, in production by this coming summer, hence the worry that it might be rushed a bit. [Deadline]
