Intolerable Cruelty Writer Matt Stone Sells 'Romance Writer'

February 1, 2010

Intolerable Cruelty

While having South Park co-creator Matt Stone would make this romantic comedy more interesting, this Matt Stone is a little less thrilling, credited for Intolerable Cruelty and Soul Men. But it doesn't sound all bad as Variety reports Fox 2000 has picked up the spec script The Romance Writer, which tells the story of a man who secretly enjoys a successful career as a romance novelist writing with a female pseudonym. But then he falls for a woman who turns out to work for his new publisher - uh oh! At least it has some original elements to it, though I'm sure there's plenty of the usual romantic comedy formula to go around.

While plenty of romantic comedies try plenty of different, even silly twists on the romance, many of them turn out to be duds because of a lack of genuine comedy to accompany the romance. Case in point, When in Rome tries an altogether original story but with some of the worst comedy I've ever seen (and that's just the trailer). Far too exaggerated and completely unbelievable scenarios are completely distracting and not funny in the least, at least not to me. It would be nice if this turns out to be a rare entertaining romantic comedy, but we'll have to wait and see who they get to direct and who they cast in it as well. Stay tuned for updates.
