Finally landing his film feature directorial debut, short movie director Phil Traill has been assigned by Fox 2000 to helm its comedy flick "All About Steve", which has already had Sandra Bullock onboard to topline.
Penned by Kim Barker, the movie focuses on a brilliant crossword constructor who comes to a decision that a CNN cameraman she dates on only one short date is her true love. Trying to convince him they are perfect for each other, she recklessly trails him as he carries out his work hither and yon, leading her to bump into a band of misfits who appreciate her for who she is.
Production reportedly will start this summer with Mary McLaglen executive producing alongside Underground Films' Nicholas Osborne and Trevor Engelson. Meanwhile, Bullock is also set to produce via her Fortis Films, which previously produced some of her starring vehicles such as "Practical Magic", "Miss Congeniality", and "Two Weeks Notice."
