GET HIM TO THE GREEK

Filmmaker NICHOLAS STOLLER's (Written and Directed by/Produced 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 wrote the modern reimagining of Gulliver's Travels, starring Jack Black and Emily Blunt, to be released by 20th Century Fox in December 2010. Stoller will reteam with Forgetting Sarah Marshall writer/star Jason Segel to write the newest Muppet movie for Disney, to be directed by James Bobin. Also upcoming for Stoller is Five-Year Engagement, which he will direct and write with Segel, who will also star. Apatow Productions is producing the picture, which is about the ups and downs of a man's five-year engagement with his fiancée.

Stoller made his directorial debut with Forgetting Sarah Marshall, an outrageous comedy starring Jason Segel, Mila Kunis, Jonah Hill, Kristen Bell, Bill Hader and Russell Brand. The film was produced by Apatow Productions and grossed more than $105 million worldwide.

Stoller also wrote the smash hit Yes Man. The film starred Jim Carrey as a man who turns his life around by saying "yes” to every opportunity. The Warner Bros. film has grossed more than $228 million worldwide.

Stoller cut his teeth in comedy writing for Judd Apatow's celebrated FOX television series Undeclared. Jason Segel and Stoller met during the run of the show and hit it off when they discovered they had a shared love for painful, heart-wrenching comedy. He 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.

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.
