“Shield” creator Shawn Ryan is one of the writers that will be tackling the adaptation of the Ed Brubaker comic.
Sleeper, Warner Bros.’ long in-development adaptation of the Ed Brubaker DC Comics/Wildstorm comic, is waking up once more.
Originally being developed as a vehicle for Tom Cruise with Sam Raimi and Josh Donen producing, Sleeper will now be produced by Ben Affleck, Matt Damon and Jennifer Todd.
Additionally, Shawn Ryan, creator of the acclaimed cop drama The Shield, and David Wiener, a writer and playwright whose credits include AMC’s gritty cop show The Killing, are attached to write the screenplay.
Sleeper, which ran from 2003-05 and had art by Sean Phillips, centers on an operative whose fusion with an alien artifact makes him impervious to pain and allows him to pass it on to others through skin contact. He is placed undercover in a villainous organization by an intelligence agency and falls for a member of the group, named Miss Misery.
The comic featured characters from WildC.A.T.S. and Gen 13.
Matt Damon attended the Benefit “Stand Up for Gus”, to show his support for Jason Patric ongoing fight for parental rights to
his biological son Gus.
What’s Stand Up For Gus: Almost four years ago, Jason Patric was blessed with a baby boy named Gus. For the first 3
years of Gus’s childhood, Patric was a consistent physical and emotional presence in Gus’s life. But that all changed in an
instant. Patric was stripped of his rights as a parent after an outdated statute meant for sperm donors was applied to
Patric simply because Gus’ mother and Patric were unmarried and used IVF to conceive. In Patric’s journey, he has
discovered many other tragic stories of parental alienation and hopes to use his personal story and name to give a voice
to those who do not have one. Thus, “Stand Up To Gus” was born, a night to raise awareness and provide assurance that
no child should be left without the love and support of a parent.

The Monuments Men release has been delayed due to the fact that movie special effects weren’t ready. The new release date now is February 7th.
After a heated bidding war, one of the highest-profile comedy packages this season Tom Papa CBS Comedy Pilot – a half-hour starring comedian Tom Papa that boasts Ben Affleck and Matt Damon as executive producers and Cathy Yuspa and Josh Goldsmith as co-writers — has landed at CBS with a put pilot commitment. 20th Century Fox TV is producing.
Based on the stand-up of Papa and the experiences of Damon, the multi-camera comedy, titled More Time With Family, centers on a guy (Papa) who changes his career and gives up a life on the road to spend more time at home with his family — but when he gets there, he realizes no one asked him to do that. The project originated with Papa and Damon who had worked together on two movies, The Informant and Behind The Candelabra. They teamed with Damon’s childhood friend and frequent collaborator Affleck, whose company, Pearl Street Films, is making a big push in television. The three met with a number of writers, going with Yuspa and Goldsmith and setting up the project at 20th TV where the scribes are under an overall deal. Damon and Affleck will executive produce through Pearl Street along with Papa, Yuspa, Goldsmith and 3 Arts’ Dave Becky and Josh Lieberman. This marks Pearl Street’s second TV sale and second big commitment — the company also has crime drama The Middle Man at Fox, which has a pilot order with Affleck directing and Glenn Gordon Caron writing.
Affleck and Damon were previously partnered in LivePlanet, which produced several TV shows in the early 2000s, including drama Push, Nevada and docu series Project Greenlight. In addition to his successful stand-up career, Papa, repped by ICM Partners, 3 Arts and Del, Shaw, Moonves, previously co-created and toplined the 2004 NBC comedy series Come To Papa. Last season, The King Of Queens alums Yuspa and Goldsmith, repped by ICM Partners, wrote and executive produced the NBC comedy pilot The Gates. Oscar winners Affleck and Damon are with WME.
