Warner Bros. and 'Nutty Professor 2' Director Adapting 'Bleach', and More...


- Earlier today, writer/director David Wain took part in a reddit AMA (ask me anything), where he confirmed he is indeed writing Wet Hot American Summer 2. He also dutifully answers the question, "What's up with the nose job?"

- If you're a fan of the manga/anime Bleach, get ready all worked up about something: Warner Bros. has bought the live-action rights to the series, and Peter Segal is attached to produce and possibly direct.
