Amanda Seyfried (Mean Girls) is set to star in He’s F-ing Perfect.  Directed by Jake Szymanski and scripted by Lauryn Kahn, the story centers on a social media expert who has bad luck with love and finds flaws in all her friends’ dates.  During the process, she stumbles across the perfect guy and uses her Internet-savvy skills to turn herself into his perfect match.  The script was originally picked up by Fox 2000 with Emma Stone eyed to star.  When that didn’t work out, Universal gave it a second chance.  Gary Sanchez’s Adam McKay and Will Ferrell, and Kevin Messic will produce.  Syzmanski made his name directing a number of shorts for Funny or Die; Kahn is McKay’s former assistant.

Each year, Hollywood releases “The Black List.” The list is a compilation of the “best” unproduced scripts making the rounds of Hollywood, as voted on by hundreds of film executives. Past scripts that have made their way to the list include Diablo Cody’s Juno and Aaron Sorkin‘s The Social Network. This year, topping the list is Graham Moore’s script for the Alan Turing biopic The Imitation Game. Turning was a mathematician and codebreaker during World War II who was criminally prosecuted for his homosexuality, after which he elected chemical castration over prison, and eventually ended his own life.

The Imitation Game has been in the works for a while, and last we heard Warner Bros. was keen on getting Harry Potter director David Yates to take the helm. Leonardo DiCaprio is also said to have taken a liking to the role of Turing. Also appearing on the list is Matt Damon’s planned directorial debut Father Daughter Time and Chewie, which tells the behind-the-scenes story of Star Wars from the perspective of Peter Mayhew. Hit the jump to peruse the entire list, which includes two Pinocchio projects, a movie about catching a screening of Jurassic Park, and zombies!

Emma Stone in Talks to Star in Comedy HE’S FUCKIN’ PERFECT

Actress and all-around awesome person Emma Stone is currently in negotiations to star in the comedy He’s Fuckin’ Perfect. The spec script comes from Lauryn Kahn, a writer who’s spent the last four years working as writer-director Adam McKay’s assistant. Deadline reports that He’s Fuckin’ Perfect “focuses on a social media savvy girl who is pessimistic about love and vets her friends’ dates to find flaws. When that process leads her to uncover the perfect guy, she decides to use her internet research skills to turn herself into his perfect match.” McKay will be producing the pic alongside Will Ferrell through their Gary Sanchez banner. Stone was spot-on in Easy A, and this sounds like another strong female-led pic well suited for the young actress (though the title will most certainly be tweaked).

Stone has been quite the busy girl as of late. She did double duty this summer with the hit dramatic adaptation The Help and the dramedy ensemble Crazy, Stupid, Love., she recently wrapped The Amazing Spider-Man, she’s currently reuniting with Zombieland director Ruben Fleischer on the star-studded period pic Gangster Squad, and she’s set to host Saturday Night Live on November 12th.
