FORGETTING SARAH MARSHALL
First-time filmmaker NICHOLAS STOLLER's (Directed by) work is smart,
clever and bittersweet; he is a filmmaker whose comedy is so real that the characters
could be your friends and neighbors.
Stoller cut his teeth in comedy by writing for Judd Apatow's celebrated Fox
television series Undeclared. Segel and Stoller met during the run of the show and hit it
off upon discovering a shared love for painful, heart-wrenching comedy.
Stoller made the transition to screenwriting by doing rewrites on numerous
projects and co-writing, with Apatow, the Jim Carrey vehicle Fun With Dick and Jane.
His current writing endeavor, Yes Man, is currently in production at Warner Bros. with
Carrey starring. Acclaimed producers Richard Zanuck and David Heyman are producing
Next for Stoller is Five-Year Engagement, which he will direct and write with
Jason Segel, who will also star. Apatow Productions will return to produce the picture,
which is about the ups and downs of a man's five-year engagement to his fiancĂ©e.
Stoller, a Harvard alumnus who wrote for The Harvard Lampoon, was born in
London and raised in Miami. Stoller currently resides in Los Angeles with his wife,
Francesca, and their daughter, Penelope.
