Columbus, Panettiere fancy 'Cooper'

Director, "Heroes" actress in talks for Fox comedy

By DIANE GARRETT


Chris Columbus and "Heroes" star Hayden Panettiere are in talks to board the Fox Atomic teen comedy "I Love You Beth Cooper for a spring start.

Panettiere would play the titular character, a comely cheerleader who is the object of a nerdy valedictorian's obsession. They embark on a series of misadventures after he proclaims his love for her in his graduation speech.

Project is based on a tome by Larry Doyle, a former scribe for "The Simpsons."

Columbus had already signed on to produce the project through his 1492 Pictures shingle.

Panettiere plays a cheerleader in the Peacock's "Heroes" skein and also appears in the upcoming Julia Roberts starrer "Fireflies in the Garden."

I read I LOVE YOU, BETH COOPER last summer, and it was pretty great. I'm not thrilled about Chris Columbus directing, but Panettiere's a pretty good choice for Beth Cooper. Now if they could just get somebody like Paul Dano, Michael Cera, or Christopher Mintz-Plasse to play Denis Cooverman.

Sounds amusing.

And I agree - McLovin is made for this role.

I read that book. It was ok. It read like a teen movie from the 80s. If it turns out like that, it could be fun.

Well that sucks.

I just hope the screenplay is really strong and that Columbus doesn't mess with it. I LOVE YOU, BETH COOPER has the potential to be the next SUPERBAD or JUNO... as long as someone doesn't fuck it up.

I don't want to ruin the book/movie too much, but Beth Cooper is pretty different than the character she plays on HEROES.

Paul Rust to star in 'Beth Cooper'

Newcomer joins Panettiere in teen comedy

By TATIANA SIEGEL

Newcomer Paul Rust will star in the Fox Atomic teen comedy "I Love You, Beth Cooper." Hayden Panettiere has already boarded the film as the eponymous character.

Jack Carpenter, Lauren Storm and Lauren London have also joined the project, which follows the adventures of a geeky high school valedictorian (Rust) who decides he has nothing to lose by making a play for the popular cheerleader (Panettiere) and declares his love for her during his graduation speech.

Chris Columbus will direct the film, which he is also producing through his 1492 Pictures banner. Michael Barnathan and Mark Radcliffe also produce.

Project is based on a novel by former "Simpsons" scribe Larry Doyle, who penned the screenplay. Shooting is scheduled to start next month in Vancouver.

Rust's credits include New Line's upcoming comedy "Semi-Pro."

I'm guessing since the movie has a PG-13 rating, it's going to be one of those things where she's "naked," but you can't see anything more than her unclothed shoulders, legs or back.

It's not as if she's got a lot to see anyways, at least from the waist up...
