John Krasinski, Olivia Thirlby, and Rosemarie DeWitt are in negotiations to star in Nobody Walks. You are a keen individual, and guessed from the collection of idiosyncratic actors that Nobody Walks is an independent drama. You are correct. (Note: the judges also would have accepted “low-budget dramedy.”) According to Variety, the film depicts one week in the life of “a Los Angeles family who invite a young, charismatic artist into their home, only to find her disrupting their lives.” Director Ry Russo-Young (You Won’t Miss Me) co-wrote the script with rising star Lena Dunham (Tiny Furniture). Production is slated for the end of May in Los Angeles.

The gentlemen responsible for this year’s Sundance hit Like Crazy are joining forces with Paramount Pictures (specifically, their Montecito Picture Co. arm) once again to adapt Emily Hainsworth’s forthcoming science fiction romance novel Through to You. According to 24 Frames, while their deals are still being negotiated, Drake Doremus will helm the youth-skewing property, with Ben York Jones writing, and Jonathan Schwartz producing. Per the report, Hainsworth’s novel focuses on a grief-stricken teen who “discovers a parallel world in which his girlfriend is still alive.” It is due out on book shelves in 2012.
The trio’s aforementioned film, Like Crazy, will be released by Paramount later this year. Starring Anton Yelchin and Felicity Jones, the nostalgic trip down teen romance lane garnered Sundance’s Grand Jury Prize (Dramatic) and a Special Jury Prize for Jones. Awards and recognition aside, as he expresses in his review, Matt was less than impressed with his Sundance screening of the film.
